I got three, greedy greedy me. I just couldn't help it, I get auction madness every time.  ::)

Don't Be Alarmed ($1000) is a handsome, striking blood-bay colt who stands at a strapping 17hh. He has an April birthday so he may actually grow more, which is sort of scary. ;)

Dr. Carson ($1000) is just a little guy at 14 hands. He's a light bay with a thin strip of white on his face and some on his feet.

West Tower ($5500) is a pretty gray gelding with a little white on his face. He stands at 15 hands and may grow more, as he has a July birthday. As with the others, I pretty much bought him because I liked his name and thought he was pretty. :) All of these guys are from created pedigrees.

I went into this auction looking for fillies, and I came out with two, and hopefully a third later on. However, I won't be disappointed with just these two lovelies.

First of all, I love the name Baltic Bird. It reminds me of Monopoly (love, love, love Monopoly). She needs time to mature, as she currently stands at 14hh. I've definitely had luck with grey horses, and this filly is just beautiful! She's by generated lines, so like everyone else has been saying, if she bombs, she'll make a nice broodmare.

Another generated filly, Queen Robyn was picked up because of her name as well. Another grey by generated lines, we're hoping she'll be able to do something on the track. But just like with Baltic, if she bombs, she can be a broodmare in two years.

I secured 3 lots -

DR EVIL (Resident Evil x Grande Finale) a 16.3 hand colt, the 5th foal from the mare Grand Finale who has had 4 to the races for 100% winners to runners with 2 being stakes winners  ;D

My other two are are both geldings and random bred Exchange of Faith and In The Zone picked purely on names ......... We've all got to have some faith in something at one stage or another while if your in the Zone you have to be hard to beat lol  good enough reasons for me :D

It was a hard choice with some nicely bred stock in there, I kept I tight rein on the purse strings though  8)

I had a very good auction. As most of the entries were game generated i went for the name in one case:
Opal Rock a tiny (14hh) mahogany bay filly with a little white. although born in January she still seems a little backward and is not likely to race too early
My second choice  was Bubbleglass because I did her pedigree so she seemed like she was already "mine" shes a well grown (15.1hh) liver chestnut and looks well developed for her age as she is a late June baby
finally I got Stone Idol another of my own pedigrees. He is a big gelding already 16.hh, and an April foal. mahogany bay with a white face he should be easy to pick out in a crowd!

I'm looking forward to seeing them all run and hope there is going to be a decent runner among them.

This was the first auction I actively participated in, and though I only got two of the three horses I originally wanted, I think it went well.

First, I bought Pelter, a generated 14.0h May colt.  He's "lined" back to Storm Cat, so I'm hoping he'll do well for the farm.  Regardless, he was a steal at $2,000.

Second, there was a somewhat lengthy bidding battle over Southern Brother, a 17.1h bay colt born January 2009.  He's by the silver-ranked stud NCh. Diplomat, who's produced a few decent stakes finishers.  On his dam's side, he's Seattle Slew-lined.  He looks to have real promise.  I can't wait to race him.

Well I didn't get a chance to look at the horses ahead of time and I came into the bidding a bit late, but I was still happy with what I was able to pick up ...

Playing It Cool
A pretty 16 hh created grey filly by Kept His Cool and out of Glacey Intent. Picked her up cause I loved her name. Cost me $10,500 which was more then I wanted to spend but still pretty cheap in the scheme of things.

Promised Union
A beautiful 16 hh mahogany bay filly by Dixie Union and out of Promised Trial. Dixie Union has thrown some nice babies in real life and hopefully this girl will be a winner to. Was a little cheaper at $5,500.

Concord Pride
This little guy joins Fleet Feet Thoroughbreds as only the second colt in the barn so he'll have lots of ladies to keep him company. He's a cute chestnut by Concorde's Tune and out of Proud Isobella. Also paid $5,500 for him. Hopefully he likes to run.

It's really hard to predict anything with created babies, but hopefully one of them will turn out decent!

Heehee. They all look lovely. Good luck on all of them!

I bid on two for cheap ('cause I was broke at the time) but got outbidded so came home empty-handed. That's alright. I still have a 2yo to run this year!  ;D

I picked up 3.. and I fought hard for two of them...

Speechless she's a granddaughter of the reine-de-course mare Lymerick. She's by Townsend Prince out of Toungetied, who has a winner and a stakes placed colt out of two to race. She's definantly a keeper, though I'm not sure what I'm looking more forward to.. racing or breeding her.

Indigo Dreams was my bargain purchase. I paid 10,500 for this guy, and he's a half to M Stakes winning mare Cigar's Promise, so hopefully he'll live up to his pedigree.

Harvest Festival was a generated filly I picked up for 1,000. We'll see how she does, I love Souvenir copy IRL.

And for those of you that didn't know, the RL Northwest Colors is actually a 1999 grey stud by Broad Brush named Dr. Litin. He stands in Oregon and you can breed to this guy for $500 since his first foals won't start running this fall.

I suppose it's about time I post here, I've been putting it off for a while...

Indy's Class- A pretty strawberry roan by gold ranked stallion A.P. Indy and out of bronze mare Classy Coed.  I am a big A.P. Indy fan, so I splurged on this guy, spending $72,500.  I hope he proves to be a good runner.

Pinoit- Something drew me to this filly- I can't say what exactly, but when I saw her, I had to have her.  I ended up with her for just $2,000.  Has Storm Cat in her created blood, that can't be a bad sign.

Grand Thunder- This is a nice little gray created filly.  I was drawn to her sire's name, Thunderello, ended up paying $11,000 for her.  I hope she makes something on the track, and if she doesn't, she can at least have babies.

Actually Northwest Colors. is the RL 1998 daughter of Winning Colors by Broad Brush... She has had 5 starts & 1 win... and has a 2003 filly sired by Fusaichi Pegasus...

Dr. Litin is the 1999 full brother to Northwest Colors he sold at the Keenland July yearling auction for $2,500,000 ran 3 times & never placed on the board. He now stands in Oregon... he has 6 known foals, all from his 2005 crop...

Well i had great luck in the past picking up a filly named Sugar Road for under $5k i think it was and she ended up a champion. This time i went mostly on name but i also looked into pedigree, I had a little bit of a war on one but i ended up with all three in the end, but boy was it hard to choose just 3, lol.And with all the ones that ive had born and bought i have a lucky 13 , 2yos to start this spring.

first off i got this cute black filly, which is my fave color, random parents, but i just loved her name.She cost me a respectful $5,500     .

------by----Lacey Evitan  ----------Bold Badgett
------------------------------------Lacey Native

out of-------Flying Kisu -----------Sir Cat
---------------------------------Flying Royalty
-shes  is an April 5,baby so might mature later, shes Black with the only white being a Bald face and looks to be a dainty Height of 15.0h



This guy i had to get , his name, his Pedigree, and his color all played a part in this purchase.I  had to have this horse!! I spent $45,500 on him and hopefully he will earn it back in spades.

-----------------Affirmed (S)  ------Exclusive Native
------------------------------------Won't Tell You
Positively Stormy
---------------Barulla (B) ----------High Demand (B)
-----------------------------------Stormy Desire (B)

Another Gorgeous black,born February 18, so should be ready to race soon, only white is a LH Ermine, and at this time hes at 15.3h





and third a cute bay filly with the same lines as my filly Sugar Road,(Strawberry Road) heres hoping shes just as good.She was the bargain at $2,000(again) heres hoping she follows in Sugars hoofprints!!!


--------------Salt Lake  ----------Deputy Minister
---------------------------------Take Lady Anne
Sundae Surprise
---------------Otoka  -----------Strawberry Road
---------------------------------Barb's Slew

a bay filly born March 1, hopefully she will be race ready shortly, she has a few markings a Star, stripe, snip, RH Ermine, and stands at 14.3h at the moment.

Hey Dawn, I'll be going up to see Dr. Litin either this week or next week. He's standing at the breeding farm that I'm sending my mare to. She'll be visiting a different stud though. Hopefully I can post some pictures of Litin, if I get the chance to take some. He's a huge dapple grey, absolutely georgeous with a sweet temperment.  If anyone's curious here's his stud page:
http://oakhurstthoroughbreds.com/stallions.asp?stallion_name=Dr%2E+Litin

Its outdated, but he's been bred to some nice mares, and I'm praying they'll run this summer and fall so I'll be justified breeding to him next year.
