 VAINGLORIOUS, 8.3h black colt
NCh. Ancient Magic x Forever A Queen (S) - Created
Unfortunately the foaling was a difficult one, and Forever A Queen was retired from broodmare duties following the birth of this little guy. She was 18 years old and had 9 foals, 3 of which we own including a 2yo daughter. Vainglorious is half to SP Ch. Southern King and SW Amber Crown.

COME HITHER, 10.1h bay filly
NCh. AndLikeThatHesGone x GCh. Hot Nurse - Lonesome Glory (G)
Not sold on the name. Fourth foal for millionaire Hot Nurse and she's a BIG one! Hot Nurse will visit American Pharaoh next.

Just 3 overdue mares, now, then all February mares have droped.

BRADBURY, 10.0h bay colt
ICh. Starling x Midnight Return (S) - Ch. Magic Cross (B)
Could be worse than 13 days late, given the size of this boy! This striking bay son of Midnight Return is half to SP Ch. Rosette, and MSW Ch. Owl Hunt. From the same family as MSW GCh. Jack O'Lantern, and SW's Ch. Marilyn Monroe and Ch. Trick Or Treat. Named after Ray Bradbury. Midnight Return will visit Demand the Best for 2023.

NIGHT STRIKE, 9.2h bay colt
Curlin x Nightfall - Planet Hollywood (S)
I was half expecting to see March babies instead of this boy! 19 days late, Night Strike is the fifth foal for his dam. He is half to 2 winners from 2 runners. Nightfall is half to MSW's NCh. Magic Spitfire and Ch. Actors Strike. Will visit Straticus next.

On to March foals!

JUVENIA, 9.3h liver chestnut filly
NCh. Irish Gold (B) x Balenciaga - A.P. Indy (S)
First foal for multi-placed dam. Her great-granddam is half to NCh. French Ruby. I didn't realize how many foals I have from this damline this year! Balenciaga's half-brother, Crimson and Gold, is also part of our 2022 crop and Juvenia's great-granddam is half to the dams of other 2022 weanlings we welcomed this year: Foxham and Foxglove. Balenciaga is now for sale, unbred.

SPACE OPERA, 9.3h dark bay colt
NCh. Space Chips x Ch. Opera Diva - Sunday Silence (B)
I am especially loving his big stockings! Laziest naming ever, but I'm surprised it wasn't taken. His only started half-sib is Oeuvre who recently ran 4th in a G3. Opera Diva will visit Silver Wizard next.

Beautiful colt! Name reminds me of Elon Musk sending a car into space, with a David Bowie song playing ;)

Colts are definitely winning this year.

ALL AMERICAN, 8.3h black colt
American Pharoah x Governess - NCh. Diplomat (S)
Third foal for his dam and half to 1 winner from 1 runner. His dam, Governess, is half to FFCh. I'm No Fool and 3 other champions including Ch. Ring The Alarm (silver). Bred on a lease, Governess has returned to Marshall Creek.

BRAHMINY, 9.3h dark bay filly
ICh. Starling x Bold Wench (S) - Bold Ruler (S)
Purchased in foal, Brahminy is the sixth foal for her dam. Half to MSW Ch. Batris, SW Ch. Battle Section, and our own multi-winner Beratis. Keeping the B theme, named for the Brahminy Starling. Bold Wench will visit City Upon a Hill next.

Unfortunately, Forever a Queen's foaling took a greater toll on her than we initially thought. She was retired after delivering a healthy colt this year, but her condition took a turn and she had to be humanely euthanized. Forever a Queen was an unraced create mare who leaves behind 9 foals including 5 daughters (one of which we own). She was 18.

The fillies have almost caught up and all our remaining March dues dropped. Unfortunately we did lose one of our favorite mares.

SEA CANDY, 8.1h grey filly
NCh. In The Navy x Candy Girl - NCh. Those Will Do (B)
Unfortunately, Candy Girl passed away shortly after foaling, leaving behind this healthy filly who is a fitting carbon copy of her dam right down to the socks. Candy Girl was half to Space Chips and Call to War, herself stakes placed. She is the dam of 5 foals, 4 of which we own including 3 daughters. Sea Candy is a full sister to MSW Ch. Navy Girl.

STAR OF THE SEA, 9.0h dark bay filly
NCh. Lord Nelson x Song of the Sea (S) - Seabiscuit (S)
Highly anticipated, Star of the Sea is half to MSW Ch. Sea Salt, MSP Ch. Song and Sixpence, and G2W Laridae. Song of the Sea will visit I'm No Fool for 2023.

TENERIFE, 9.1h chestnut filly
GCh. Naval Commander x Townsend Victory (S) - Man O'War (S)
Tenerife is half to MSW's Ch. T'Pau, Ch. Talosian, and Thalmerite; half to SW's and SP's Ch. Taleen, Ch. Tarchannen, Temarak. Named after the island where a major Napoleonic naval battle took place. Townsend Victory will visit Lake Highlands next.

TINSELTOWNTHRODOWN, 9.3h black colt
NCh. Quintet x Tinseltown - FFCh. TakeMeToHollywood (B)
First foal for his dam, he is 100% jet black and I will learn to tolerate the deliberate misspelling of his name because I've had this name in the wings forever, not realizing it was originally 1 character too long. Tinseltown set 2 speed records and is half to MSW Ch. I'm Your Demon. Tinseltown will visit Zadar for 2023.
