Ivy Creek 2019 - V is for Victory, Sleipnir, Ducati, & Bellagio
« on: January 06, 2015, 08:43:15 pm »
ICh. V is for Victory
2008 chestnut stallion standing 17.0hh
Jazz It Up (G) x Dark Victory (P) (x created)
Breeder's Cup nominated
SILVER-RATED (3.3)
FEE: $5,000 LFG

PLACES: Pacific Classic (Gr.1), July Cup (Gr.1), Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe (Gr.1), Portrero Grande Breeders' Cup Handicap (Gr.2)
SPEED RECORDS: 10f turf at age 5, 10f turf at age 5


IN THE SHED

Two crops to race
Winners: 59%
Stakes Winners: 15% (6% MSW)

Highlights: MSW Ch. Silent Victor, MSW Ch. Crowning Victory, SW Ch. Don't Pass Go, SW Captain's Pride, SW Carry the Day, SP Final Victory, SP Fooled Again, SP Razamatazz


ICh. V IS FOR VICTORY would be best suited to produce foals that will peak at 3 years old or later, since he had his best year at age 4. We hope that they will inherit his ability to thrive on both dirt and turf surfaces, and they should do well at classic distances - most of his accolades were earned between 8 and 10f. At a tall 17.0hh, he will add class and legginess to your future foals. As a young sire, he has the potential to still prove himself as a world-class sire if we are lucky. Breeding to V IS FOR VICTORY is potentially a chance to breed to an up-and-coming sire for a reasonable fee before his siring abilities are fully realized (and demand and fees increased to match).

Highlights: MSW GCh. Laevateinn, MSW Ch. Seven Snakes, SW Ch. Frigg, SP Odin


ICh. SLEIPNIR was the 2 Year Old Colt of the Year, so he would likely be suited to producing early maturers.  In addition, he had a stellar 3 year old career, finishing in the top three in all phases of the Triple Crown - arguably proving himself to be one of the top three 3YOs of his generation as well.  Standing 15hh, he's not going to add any height, so taller mares might pair better with him.  As a young sire, his fees remain affordable until he is able to prove himself in the shed.

IN THE SHED

It's his first year at stud!


NCh. DUCATI had a strong 2- and 3-year old career, making him an ideal match for most mares.  He excelled in the classic distances over dirt (with a couple wins on turf to show versatility).  These conditions match some of the biggest races - think: Triple Crown - so we hope to use Ducati to breed tomorrow's Derby hopefuls.  Spots are limited, because he really is my ideal in terms of talent, height, preferences, and age of maturity, and will primarily be an in-house stud to begin with.

Hi Alyssa,

Could I please get an April 1 slot to Bear Witness for Sun Spot?

Thanks.

BTW - Did you plan to retire Exit Poll and Fight The Twilight too or just Bear Witness?

I've got everyone on there!

Four Aces - I assume you meant the August spot for Ducati (those were the only two left), so I gave it to you!  Also, Marshall Creek requested March 3B, so I gave your mare an April 1 spot instead if that's ok.  :)

BEAR WITNESS and DUCATI are out on lease and will be retired as soon as they return (January 31).

At this time, we plan to run both FIGHT THE TWILIGHT and EXIT POLL for 2019, because they both won most of their stakes races last year (and thus seem capable of doing well again this year).  They will retire once their performance starts to fade.  But since I'm not the best at being active at the moment, they will most likely renew their leases with Starfish Stables.

Thank you for your interest!

After much deliberation, I have decided that BEAR WITNESS will actually NOT be retiring to stud this year. His last win seemed like a fluke when I glanced at his race overview, but upon closer inspection, he's actually done really well his last two times out, as Starfish seems to have found a new strategy for him.

As a result, all of my bookings to him will now go to BELLAGIO, who just joined us. Any slots booked to Bear can be transferred to him at the same rate/same slot if desired. Otherwise, he will stand for $5,000 LFG. Info will be updated when I get a chance.

Thank you for understanding!
