The Adios Sale

The first yearling sale of 2012 takes place on the 27th at The Meadows in Pennsylvania. The Adios sale features 30 yearlings from Hanover Shoe Farms from a variety of their sires including one by Somebeachsomewhere and three by first crop trotting sire Explosive Matter. There is also a very interesting colt by Donato Hanover called Cold Front Hanover.

The profiles for the yearlings are attached and I will post the updated stallion profiles for the sires in this sale shortly on the Links page.

The onslaught begins

Two significant developments happened today

A Somebeachsomewhere colt paced in 1.51.2f and a colt by Hussy Chaser won in 2.02h.

I predicted that SBSW would rewrite the record books this year and so far it looks like he will fulfill that promise. He has 72 of 128 foals qualified in his first crop and already has 12 in 1.55..  George Teague has a filly from Rainbow Blue that will pace in 1.46 next year, mark that on your calender.

On the home front the first foal I have ever bred , Scarlet Chaser, won an Atlantic Sires B Stake in 2.02h. I initially called him Harrier but that name was taken. His dam is a three quarter sister to Camluck and his sire is a horse I bought for $1,500 who went on to make over $520,000.

He probably wont match the accomplishments of the offspring of SBSW but you never know.  So far so good.
