Annual Select Auction / How'd You Do 2015
« on: September 11, 2011, 03:55:39 pm »
I definitely hadn't planned on spending this much, but I can't say I don't like the two I managed to get! I'm definitely spending as little as possible in the upcoming youngstock auction, since my current racing kids seem to be in no hurry to restore the bank a little.

I had gone into the auction thinking, "No youngstock!" and ended up bidding for a weanling. I had my heart set on Cream of the Crop, a Man O'War mare, but she went above and beyond my spending limits so when I saw she had a half-sister consigned, I went for her. Gimme a Latte, renamed to Cafelatte (name pending), is by Point Given (S) out of Cream Only (S). Cream Only has produced 5 winners from 6 runners, 3 champions, and her two producing foals are bronze and gold ranked. Picked Cafelatte up for $30,500.

The second horse we picked up was the broodmare Chief's Lady, who adds some new blood to our herd. She's by Chief Inspector (S) out of the Reine-de-Course mare Lady Be Good (S). Chief's Lady was a MSW of $521,000 and is currently bronze-ranked with 3 winners from 3 runners. She's in foal to Point Given and made the bank account lurch with a $100,000 purchase price.

Comments and Suggestions / Re: Stud Booking Fee
« on: August 26, 2011, 04:21:34 pm »
I only own one stallion, but I do own a pretty healthy number of broodmares and personally I like the current system for the simple sake of simplicity. If my stallion loses a booking, oh well, an FF mare will probably fill the slot and if not, it's not like I'm relying heavily on stud fee income (I know FF mares are free breedings, but I'm more concerned with getting foals on the ground that will later reflect on the stallion when they hit racing age than I am with earning 1k a breeding right now).

I've tried reading all the above and am just flat-out confused over what's being proposed now, lol. What if a booking is dropped/canceled/never made and the stud owner is given the opportunity for a "backbreeding"? Meaning a slot HAD to be booked, a breeding was not done by that slot date, so the owner can either personally use it or offer that slot to the public and a mare could back-breed to that stud, using the slot?

Again, personally, I think if a slot is not filled, oh well, it happens. Chances are you still filled most of the other slots, but I may be in the minority here.

How'd You Do? / Re: 8/17
« on: August 18, 2011, 02:09:43 pm »
Not too bad overall. June and Miss Townsend are definitely done racing and have been sent home for the rest of the year before beginning their mommy careers next year. June was one of my very first horses (claimed on a whim as a little unraced 2yo who went on to be a MSW!). Really excited to see future babies from her. 7 of 14 earned checks/hit the board, so I'll just be listing them:

2yo's
Daytona Weekend (A.P. Indy) won the Ung. Generous Portion Stakes.
A.P. Goodyear (A.P. Indy) was 4th/10 in the Ung. I'm Smokin Stakes.
Crack the Bell (Dark Continent) ran 7th/10 in the G3 Marco Polo Stakes. We'll give her an allowance next time out, given her career so far with stakes after stakes. If she flops in that, she'll head home for some well-earned rest.

Moonstorm ran 3rd/6 in his NW3. Still figuring out what he likes.
French Resistance won her NW3 against 5 others.
Dark Twilight ran 4th/6 in her NW3 after coming off a long rest.
Blue Velvet was 3rd/6 in her OA.
Painted Sunset has officially found her niche (FINALLY) and ran 2nd/6 in her NW2.
