Already Planning The 2018 Breeding Season 2013-01-09 22:05:02
Let's try breeding What's Honor to a BIG stallion to get an average sized foal out of her. Her 3YO son by the
16.2hh Tiznow is only 14.3hh and he's a New Year's baby, you'd think he'd mature a little faster :|

Now if it was Antietam, whose daddy is also tiny, 14.3hh would just be the minimum height and I wouldn't
have problems racing him.
Three Stallions To Look Out For. 2010-01-21 20:49:02
Leave A Note and Class Above are two horses on the upswing; they are both stakes winners this
year and both have the required Grade 1 win. Note needs four more stakes victories of any grade, and Class
needs just two. While six, they show no signs of slowing down.

Eighteen Karat is a What's It Worth colt, and he has three Grade 1 wins to his name. He's a confirmed
router, but we don't know what surface he prefers - he seems to finish better on the turf, but two of his
three stakes victories were on the main track. We're hoping this year he gets studified AND tells us what
surface he likes more. He won't be retiring for a few years, so we have plenty of time to figure it out.
Better Late Than Never! 2010-01-14 00:52:53
January 1st 2014 saw the birth of RC Bee's first homebred, a lovely dark bay son of Tiznow and the well-bred
What's honor. His name is The Time Lord, in honor of David Tennant's run as the Doctor on BBC's Doctor Who
which happened to end on January 1st. Rather fitting, don't you think?

What's Honor has been bred back to Man O'War's only son at stud, Call To War, for her 2015 foal. Fingers

The first few weeks of the New Year has brought us two stakes winners, including Leave A Note, who earned
his Grand Champion status! Class Above finished second in his stakes race but he also earned Grand Champion
status, while Sonatina won the first stakes of her career - she's been knocking on the door all of last year -
and earned her own Champion status. Looks to be a good year for RC Bee.

Wish us luck!
Winding Down The Year. 2009-12-19 23:51:40
Looks like my little band of broodmares will be bred late next year.

Looking to rack up some wins before the year ends. Good luck, RC Bee runners!
Fleet On Their Feet. 2009-07-12 12:32:40
Have a trio of 3YO sprinting fillies, which is a huge surprise since we always intended to tilt towards
routers. But right now they're hauling in huge chunks of cash for the stable, so why change the formula?
Diamond Prospector is now a stakes winner, and Red Light District and Sonatina are stakes-placed. Pretty good

Edit: Add Romeo's Girl to the list. Four 3YO filly sprinters. How the heck am I going to keep them
apart and avoid the New York tracks at the same time?
My, How Has The Stable Grown! 2009-07-04 02:26:16
Juggling 35 racehorses and giving special attention to their needs - equipment changes, track surface
preferences, distance, allowance or stakes level - is quite the mental exercise.
Post-Wednesday 06/17 Notes 2009-06-16 03:59:21
Ship Diamond Prospector home to RC Bee.
Ship Class Above to Woodbine.
Ship Eighteen Karat to RC Bee, regardless of finish.
Depending on finish, Remembrance will either stay in Belmont or ship back home. Ultimate goal: Pacific
Run Love Triangle in the San Diego Handicap to see how the surface switch will suit him. If he does well,
then he's also going into the Pacific Classic.
Summer 2009-06-12 01:40:08
Quite a few surprises so far this year. Both Red Light District and Sonatina have shown themselves to be black
type dirt sprinters. Changing equipment has breathed new life into Remembrance, and Raise A Cheer is doing
quite well for a 2YO, with 2 wins in 3 starts. Eighteen Karat and Eleanor Rigby are headlining the whole lot,
and hopefully First Taken and Fairy Wish break through as well. Ideal Ransom is doing quite fabulously for an
allowance mare.

Waiting for the others to either wake up or rest up. I'd like to see Leave A Note game and on his toes
Coming Out Of The Woodworks. 2009-05-04 15:50:36
So far this year three horses have shown themselves to be far away the best of the stable - Eleanor Rigby,
Eighteen Karat, and Love Triangle. Red Light District is improving dramatically. A confirmed dirt sprinter she
is heading to Belmont for another try at a stakes race.

Magical Stone has been retired and sent to Cascade Stables to be bred to Moonover Boy. I'll probably sell
the resulting foal.

If Party For One doesn't show much in her next start or two she'll be retired as well. She's 6 anyways.

So far, so good. Eleanor Rigby is on target for the Vagrancy, Eighteen Karat is at Pimlico awaiting the
Preakness, and Love Triangle is running in an ungraded stakes at Arlington this Wednesday.
Stillwater Lease Eleanor Rigby 2009-04-30 00:23:11
Now that she's proven that she can compete successfully in stakes company our long range goal is the Breeders'
Cup Turf Sprint. She's on target for the G2 Vagrancy in Belmont in June.
The 2YO Invasion 2009-03-15 10:47:40
I got the shock of my life late last night when I glanced at Training Summary and wondered where in the world
I got more horses.

The 2YO season has arrived. We're going to have our hands full.
Auction And Observation. 2009-03-10 12:18:59
We brought home four geldings from the 2yo-in-training Auction - Captain's Orders (Giant's Causeway-Brassy 'n'
Sassy), Klassique Nite (Rahy-Come On Sunday), Now's The Time (Tiznow-Sunday Ribbons), and Raise A Cheer (Rumor
Has It-Huzzah). This brings us to a total of eight 2yos to tend to in addition to the 3yos and older horses.
Didn't spend too much at the sales, though. We got away with Captain's Orders for 1K.

It appears that Eighteen Karat just had a growth spurt, hitting his optimum height of 17 hands. We are
hoping that was the reason why he lost his two previous races. We're running him in the Grade 2 San Felipe.
There's still hope he can make it to the Derby. If not there's always the Canadian Triple Crown and the Turf
Triple Crown, since he's a two-time winner on the green, with one coming at 9 furlongs.
Bookings. 2009-01-21 04:00:59
What's Honor is booked to FF stallion Tiznow for February 20, 2013.

Glory's Jewel is booked to KindleHope Farm stallion No Duplicate for March 1, 2013.

Magical Stone is booked to Cascade Stables stallion Moonover Boy for May 20, 2013.

Party For One is booked to North Oak Farms Inc. stallion I'm A Classic for May 25, 2013.

UPDATE: What's Honor is in foal to Tiznow. She is due on January 10th, although I was hoping for January
20th, for fun and personal reasons. Here's to a healthy pregnancy and RC Bee's first homebred!

UPDATE: Glory's Jewel is in foal to No Duplicate. She is due on January 29th, give or take a few days/weeks.
Here's to RC Bee's second homebred!

UPDATE: Magical Stone is in foal to Moonover Boy. She is due on April 4th. The resulting foal will probably
head to auction.

UPDATE: Party For One is in foal to I'm A Classic. She is due on April 1st. Not sure whether to keep foal or
sell it. I'll probably keep it if it's a filly.
Belated 2012 Recap 2009-01-09 14:58:18
RC Bee is proud to say that the majority of our runners have been (bread)winners. We are still working out a
few kinks with our maidens/new claims & buys, but that's what 2013 is for.

Our biggest success is Champion LEAVE A NOTE. Claimed soon after I joined finalfurlong, he has been
consistently in the money and had won two stakes, one of them being the Grade I Pacific Classic. He is a sound
and sturdy horse, able to perform at the highest levels every two weeks.

The others have won a few, placed plenty, and contributed to RC Bee's earnings. We hope they'll all bloom in
2012 Foal Auction 2008-12-08 01:13:43
RC Bee Stables is proud to welcome four weanlings and a yearling:

The Romantic West, formerly known as Brigade Commander, is a dark bay son of Mr. Prospector and
Champion Legendary Lady, by Black Legend.

Fleet Admiral is a black son of the Black and Secret Fleet, by Count Fleet.

Ship of the Line is a blood bay son of Lord of Atlantis and Tripoli Treaty, by Red Sultan.

Sundance Kid, formerly known as Mola Mola, is a dark bay daughter of Flame On and Sunshine Fish, by
Lord of Atlantis.

The Silver Cooper, a previously unnamed yearling gray, is a son of Man o' War and Kimolass, by Eskimo

We look forward to a successful future with them.
Freaks. 2008-11-29 20:11:13
Bucking Tiger needs shorter races.

Class Above will remain in the allowance ranks unless an ungraded grass stakes pops up.

Easy Memories is entered to run in another 7f turf race.

Eighteen Karat will run one race in December before shipping home to prepare for a campaign at Santa Anita.

First Taken has broken his maiden and will continue racing in marathons.

Glory's Jewel is entered to run in a marathon dirt race.

Ideal Ransom finished last of 13 in a 7f turf race. May send her home for half of December.

Leave A Note is a freak. How he can withstand all this racing without going ballsy like Twiterpated is
beyond me. He will go into the Grade 2 Lonesome Glory Breeders' Stakes.

Sonatina will be shipped to Santa Anita in January.

Twiterpated is done for the year and will go home.

Bragging Rights. 2008-11-03 06:31:48
I joined Final Furlong February 25, 2012/2008. I forgot I was on the waiting list and was pleasantly surprised
when an email appeared informing me of my induction into the ranks.

And as a newbie I blundered quite a bit. I also got incredibly lucky (I like to think so; I'm sure some
people found bigger pots of gold their first year on FF).

Bucking Tiger, 15.2h chestnut gelding by Tiger-Bucking Beauty, by Our Cloudy Dawn. My starter
gelding, it took a while for me to figure him out. I honestly didn't know what the hell I was doing with him
and I nearly blew it several times. He is turning into a decent allowance gelding who loves going 9 furlongs
on the grass.

Santeria, 14.3+h dark grey yearling filly by Voodoo Dance-Scarlet Bouquet, by Redly. She is my
starter yearling. She's grown a bit since I got her, but I really can't predict her final height. I look
forward to racing her.

Ch. Leave A Note, 16.1h bay colt by Back At Noon-Note In The Sand, by Sand Fortress. He was my first
new horse, and by sheer stupidity I entered him in an ungraded stakes after he was claimed. Luckily he won.
Over the summer he progressed from a rather consistent allowance horse to graded stakes place to Grade I
winner. He's been going downhill since but I blame myself for it; I reached too high after he won the Pacific
Classic. I'm using an allowance to jump start him again. I have high hopes that he'll be even better next year
and hopefully my first stallion. Also, he hates shipping.

First Taken, 17.2h bay colt by Takin It Deeply-Firstclassonly, by Flying Continental. He is one of my
luckless maidens. He grew from 16.3h to 17.2 over the year, which stunned me, but what surprised me even more
was how worthless he was. His best finish so far has been the race I claimed him in. I have hope, though, that
he will do well at marathon distances - his workouts have been very promising.

Twiterpated, 16.h blood bay gelding by Tiznow-Spring Flight, by Miswaki. He had run two years before
I claimed him at the beginning of the year and he's had his best year under me. I gelded him knowing he's
probably past his peak and he's done well since. He's quite the bridesmaid but almost always brings home some

Glory's Jewel, 17.3h bay filly by Sweet Glory-Jewel of Hope, by Fight For Hope. She is my other
luckless maiden, but with a better track record. She was a candidate for retirement and broodmarehood due to
her inability to even get in the money, but she has improved dramatically with the addition of a F8. She also
may need marathon distances as I've noticed that in most of her races she tends to progress rather than

Sonatina, 16.1h light bay filly by NCh. Government Secret-Genuinely Gold, by Golden Delight. She is
my first "established" horse, aka she is not a created horse but rather a product of other FF horses. I
claimed her looking forward to her future racing career and later career as a broodmare. So far she has yet to
do anything of note but she's only 2 and I'm not worried.

Lady Ironsides, 14.1h flea-bitten grey filly by Man O'War-Grey Allusion, by Revenge. Lady Ironsides
is my first auction filly, a yearling with excellent bloodlines. She cost quite a bit, too, but I think it'll
be worth it in the future. I named her after the oldest commissioned wooden warship, the USS Constitution. I
look forward to a future with her.

Easy Memories, 16.0h chestnut gelding by World Champion What's Debatable-Champion Easy Livin', by
Easy Street is an auction purchase. A relatively young horse, he may have a bright future in turf sprints. He
is shipping with Twiterpated to Aqueduct for the winter races.

Reservoir Democrat, 14.1h bay colt by International Champion Worth the Wait-Honor Bright, by
Honorable is my new auction purchase. His former name is Uncommon Valor. I am looking forward to racing him
next year with Santeria and Lady Ironsides.

Ideal Ransom, 15h flea-bitten gray filly by Red Ransom-Ideal Index, by Copelan is my first successful
claim in quite a while. I am still in fits over losing Sundance, who is turning into a fine filly for her new
owner. Ideal Ransom is a maiden who has been running for two years; I plan to keep her runnng until February
of next year, and then breed her in March. If everything goes right, she will become my first broodmare,
hopefully in foal to a proven and cheap stallion.

Ch. Class Above, 16h bay colt by NCh. I'm A Classic-On A Dare, by Planet Hollywood is another
successful claim and by far one of the finest bred horses in the barn. A two-time stakes winner, I plan to
keep him at allowance/ungraded stakes levels unless he proves he can tackle the big boys at the graded stakes

Eighteen Karat, 16.3h bay colt by What's It Worth-Heart of Gold, by Mr. Prospector, and yet another
successful claim. A son of the great Worth and one of the best bred horses under my silks he had already put
together a solid, albeit winless, two year old campaign when I claimed him. In all likelihood he will improve
as a three year old.

This coming foal auction I am aiming for 3-4 weanlings and yearlings, and at least one stakes victory for
Leave A Note. Best of luck to them (and me).
