MAROONED
NCh. Pay the Boatman (B) x Island View - Rock of Gibraltar (B)
9.1h dark bay colt

Island View was only mildly succesful on the track, but her dam has produced multiple MSW, including a full brother who was a rockstar on SC. Hoping Island View can pass some of those genes!

I was gonna send her to Gun Runner next, but doesn’t seem like he’ll make the cut.

Colts are out in front again. Struggled to name these boys, but I think I’ve settled for these!

GOODY TWO SHOES
GCh. Quirky Scent x Two’s Company - NCh. Bear Witness
8.2h grey colt

Two’s Company wasn’t very succesful on the track, but she’s half to NCh. Bells Beach, so hopefully this colt has inherited some of that talent. She’s off to Lucky Streak next.

PORT ROYAL
GCh. Naval Commander x Twenty Four Carat - ICh. What’s Your Point
9.1h chestnut colt

Fourth foal of this lightly raced dam. We recently purchased her eldest and he’s inching towards that Ch. title. Looking forward to racing more of her offspring. Twenty Four Carat has a booking with Powerful Soul for 2029.

Colts are pulling ahead for now!

AUTO-TUNE
ICh. Calle de Oro (B) x Super Tunes - GCh. Superdocious
9.1h blue roan colt

Beautiful blue roan colt! Second foal for his dam, who wasn’t very fruitful on the track but the damline is packed with talent, so I’m excited to have her in the breeding shed. She’s on her way to Ancient Magic.

FLASHBACK
GCh. Mantle of Power (S) x GCh. When You Were Mine - ICh. Take Me Away
Bred by Coleman Branch
8.3h brown colt

Suprised the name wasn’t taken! When you were mine was a powerhouse on turf and Mantle of power brings some versatility to this breeding. When You Were Mine will see Local Haunt for 2029.

Another colt showed up overnight.

Lá BREITHE
NCh. Carrowmore (S) x Ch. Mañanita - ICh. Gunningdownromance (S)
8.1h chestnut colt

Lé Breithe is Gaelic for Happy Birthday. As Carrowmore is in Ireland and Mañanita refers to Mexican birthday tradition this colt is the combination of his heritage. And helped me learn something new in the proces.

Mañanita is visiting Fight the Twilight next.
