Annual Mixed Auction / Re: How'd you do 2022?
« on: July 02, 2018, 09:55:25 pm »
Really happy with my picks and didn't spend too much money! What I didn't realize until now though is that I bought 5 fillies/mares lolol

Victoriosa - V is for Victory x My Babu - Yearling filly out of a silver-ranked mare and is half to MSW Ch. Devilish Intent and SP That'sMyPointBaby, Ch. All the Right move, and HeartsAllOver. Bought for $1k.

Hollywood Dixie - Dixie Time x Hollywood Victory - Yearling filly out of a gold-ranked mare. Half to MSW GCh. A Pharoahs Victory, GCh. Triomphe, and GCh. Quest for Victory. Bought for $15,500, still a pretty good deal!

Unnamed - Blue Smoke x Ancient Gold - Yearling filly out of bronze-ranked mare and she's half to SW Archangel Raphael. Bought for $1k.

Ch. Lilac Wars - High On Love x Keep Quiet - 5yo MSP mare,  Mostly picked up because I like her name. She's still running well so definitely not heading to broodmare duty until next year. Bought for $1k.

Paint Me Perfect - Gallant Fox x Jour d'Or - Dam is gold-ranked and has produced MSW GCh. Biscayne Bay, Ch Mandurah & SW Tee En Tee. Sent her to Strike It Rich for a 2023 foal. Bought for $1k.

Hey! Welcome to the game :D

I would definitely stick to maidens or NW1 for the first races because the others will have tougher competition. Good luck!
