Continuing Stallion Spotlights?

Willa and I have severely derailed on these so I want to take a quick count: do you guys enjoy these? Want to see them return? Things you found useful/want more of/didn't care for/etc.?

Yes please!! I miss Stallion Spotlights. Perhaps you could also write about most influential Platinum ranked stallions and mares?

Honestly, I would like to see them done on younger/newer stallions. These spotlights definitely encouraged me to send mares to boys I sometimes overlooked.

ahah yeah we definitely fell off the wagon, maybe go back to once a month?

I do like the idea of doing some of the newer stallions, especially those with a 2yo crop so we have at least some progeny to look at?

Not opposed to writing about the younger stallions! There's just always less to actually write about, lol. I would be very interested in writing about new stallions who will be retiring soon or recently retired, so would love to hear from anyone who has a racehorse definitely heading to the shed in 2023.

Mares would be interesting. Are we thinking of still-active mares? Platinums? Reine-de-course?

We have a couple of horses who will probably be heading to the Stallion barns for 2023, both 6YO:-

NCh. Devil's Heir, by ICh. Devil His Due (S) out of GCh. Heiress (G).

NCh. Secret Handshake, by ICh. Highland Magic (G) out of GCh. Secret Signal (P).

In addition, we have been racing Ivy Creek Lease NCh. Franco Classico, 6YO by NCh. I'm A Classic (G) out of Ch. Little Franco (G), and he is already qualified. Alyssa will be the one deciding what is on the agenda for him for next year, although I believe that she has already said he will be retired to stud next year.

We also have two younger horses who are already qualified but will be kept in training next year:-

NCh. Explosive Motif, 5YO by FFCh. Foolhardy (P) out of Ch. Fenix (G), and

GCh. Fool To Be Smokin', 4YO by FFCh. Foolhardy (P) out of WCh. Smokin' (P).
