Kismet Thoroughbreds 2024 Foals

Quite a few more foals expected this year!

This year’s theme is references to the movie Casablanca; if it doesn’t carry me through the foal season, I’ll broaden it to other classic movies.

I’ve previously done Latin names (2023) and references to the TV series Gossip Girl (2022).

NCh. Nobly Regal (S) x Sahreen - ICh. Highland Magic (S)
8.2h Grey Colt

Sentimental favorite. Sahreen was the first stakes-placed horse I owned in FF. This is her first foal.

NCh. Nobly Regal (S) x Hollywood Classic (S) - FFCh. TakeMeToHollywood (S)
8.2h Bay Colt

Half to SW My Formal Spurs (Formal Occasion). I purchased Hollywood Classic from the Black Storm auction this fall.

Very sadly, we also lost a filly by Usain Bolt, out of Churcheria (NCh. Yes It’s Paddy). This was Chucheria’s first foal; fortunately, she’s doing well.

29 foals still due

Lovely colts.

Sorry to hear about your stillborn filly. As UB has retired we can’t offer a re-breeding to him but if you would like to send her to any of our other studs just let us know.

Ohhh I love the movie Casablanca!

Sorry about your filly, but congrats on the pair of healthy Nobly Regal colts!

NCh. Player (S) x Diliverance (S) - Planet Hollywood (S)
9.1hh Chestnut Colt

Half to SWs Ch. GILDED PLANET (Gilded Saint) and INTAGLIO (Golden Text).

This handsome little colt was bred by Gant’s Farm; he arrived about 10 days early. I purchased Diliverance just last week – lucky me!

Yet another foal from a Gant’s Farm pairing. Excited to have dam and foal at Kismet Thoroughbreds now.

The number keeps going up as I keep finding lovely mares for sale. An amazing “problem” to have, hahah.

And the addiction doesn’t get better the longer you play! XD


It’s a slippery slope!


The math checks out, ahahahah.

2024 - 25-ish foals I bred, 33 foals in the crop
2023 - 9 foals
2022 - 4 foals

And I have more than 50 broodmares for 2025.

4 Colts | 3 Fillies | 2 Stillborn

Sorry about your colt. :frowning:

Love the name Many A Friend.

Great names!

Can I sustain my (often vague) Casablanca references for 27 more foals?! Tune in whenever my broodmares decide to find out, ahaha.

[color=red]EXIT VISA[/color]
GCh. Mantle of Power (S) x Faylinn - Empire Maker
Bred by Generous Bloodstock

Capt. Renault: No matter how clever he is, he still needs an exit visa — or should I say two?

Capt. Renault: He is traveling with a lady.
Rick: He’ll take one.
Capt. Renault: I think not. I have seen the lady.

NCh. Bellagio (S) x Famously - Smart Strike

The dialogue in Casablanca is AMAZING. I feel like I’ve watched the movie 10x at this point, hahaha.

I love that you’re including the dialogue. I now need to go watch this movie for the millionth time. It’s been ages, but its one of my and my dad’s favorites.

About half of these foals were bred by other farms, and this little colt (OK, actually the largest 2024 foal by a good 2 inches in height!) is the same.

To my shame, I’ve never seen the movie. I feel I need to rectify this!

Lovely foals, congrats!
