Battle Hill came away with 4 new horses and a total spent of $75,000...

Our first purchase was Kitty Kat Knapp a 2003 dark grey broodmare standing 15.0h and of created lines... she has had one foal by Whirlaway, she has gone to visit Ch. Moonopoly for a 2013 foal... the winning bid was $6000

Our second purchase was Greek Baby a 2002 strawberry roan broodmare standing 17.3h and of created lines... this is the tallest mare I've seen in a while... she has one foal by Almost Home, she has gone to visit Ch. Rumor Has It for a 2013 foal... the winning bid was $15,500

Our third purchase was Star of Hearts a 2010 chestnut filly standing 15.3h from the first foal crop of GCh. Starzen and the last foal of Hearts Aflame (B)... I fought hard for this filly... to date unlaced... I'm excited to have her in my racing string... she will make her Maiden debut @ Saratoga on the 19th... the winning bid was $32,500

Our 4th and final purchase was an unnamed 2011 dark bay colt standing 14.1h as a yearling from the last foal crop of Mr. Prospector (S) BM (S) and out of Diamond Corridor (B)... We've named him Koh-I-Noor after one of the 10 largest diamond in the world...

Koh-I-Noor (Mountain of Light)
105.60 Carats, an oval cut gem, now part of the British Crown Jewels. The name of this diamond means "Mountain of Light" and its history, dating back to1304, is the longest of all famous diamonds. It was captured by the Rajahs of Malwa in the sixteenth century by the Mogul, Sultan Babur and remained in the possession of later Mogul emperors. It may have been set in the famous Peacock Throne made for Shah Jehan. After the break-up of the Persian empire the diamond found its way to India. It may have traveled to Afghanistan with a bodyguard of Nadir Shah, who fled with the stone when the Shah was murdered, to be later offered to Ranjit Singh of the Punjab in exchange for military help (which was never delivered). After fighting broke out between the Sikhs and the British, The East India Company claimed the diamond as a partial indemnity, and then presented it to Queen Victoria in 1850. When the stone came from India, it weighed l986 carats; it was later recut to l08.93 carats. It was first worn by the Queen in a brooch. It was later set in the State Crown, worn by Queen Alexandra and Queen Mary, and 1937 was worn for by Queen Elizabeth for her coronation. It is kept in the Tower of London, with the other Crown Jewels.

We're excited to have one of the last foals by Mr. Prospector in our barn... I'm looking forward to seeing him run next year... The winning bid was $21,000

Looking forward to the Select Auction in Sept...

I only bid on two this year, and dropped out when the filly hit $100,000.

The colt I won is Shadows of War (formerly War Shadows), a weanling with created lines. He's a handsome little black with white feets, and in my book, that makes him worth taking a chance on, hehehe. ;) I only paid $1,000, so if he ever does much on the track, I'll consider him a good investment.
