Sakura Springs 2027 Foals

First two foals of the year are on the ground. Not entirely sold on the names yet, but super stoked to have a strawberry roan in the herd. That’s a color I don’t see very often.

GCh. Final Scene x Ch. Commemorate Spurs - GCh. Tottenham Hotspur
8.3h strawberry roan colt
Aiming for an “all-rounder” with this pairing. Final Scene only ever ran on turf, so his dirt proficiency is unknown. Commemorate Spurs managed wins on both dirt and turf, though she spent most of her time (including a second-place G1 finish) on dirt. Oldest sibling is a yearling this year, so racing potential remains to be seen.

NCh. Devil’s Heir x Ch. Night Of Magic - WCh. Nightfight (G)
8h chestnut colt
Also bred to be an “all-rounder.” This is the second foal (and colt) for this stakes-winning Nightfight mare.

2 Colts | 38 Still Due


First filly of the year has landed!

NCh. Tense Imagination x Ch. Kyoko - ICh. Belanso
8.2h chestnut filly

Second foal (and filly) for homebred Ch. Kyoko. Kyoko was a turf sprint specialist with speed records at 6.5 and 7f. Hoping that the combo with Tense Imagination will produce a slightly more well-rounded but equally as talented daughter.

2 Colts | 1 Filly | 37 Still Due


I love her name!

Found a big girl in the barn this morning. Unabridged Edition has been listed for sale.

NCh. Ancient Magic (B) x Unabridged Edition - ICh. Unabridged
9.2h grey filly

2 Colts | 2 Fillies | 36 Still Due


Colts and fillies are currently neck-and-neck. Lol.

NCh. Tense Imagination x Ch. My Ambition - WCh. Strike It Rich (S)
9.1h chestnut colt

Really excited to see how this pairing turns out. My Ambition is one of the Executive Session girls I’ve managed to pick up and a cousin to my NCh. Fractal. Currently, My Ambition only has one other foal, a 6YO mare owned by final furlong, so how she’ll do as a producer over the long term is up for debate.

My Ambition did best on turf and SC while Tenny was G1 grade on both dirt and turf, so hoping for a solid all-rounder here.

NCh. Lucky Streak (S) x Tooth and Nail - ICh. Stressed (B)
9.3h blue roan filly

Very happy to find a little blue roan in the stable this morning. Most of my horses are bays or chestnuts. Lol. As with My Imagination, Wild Blue’s dam was turf and SC focused while her sire was a dirt/turf monster. Tooth and Nail’s only racing foal is SW Last Man Standing. Looking forward to seeing how this one does on the track.

3 Colts | 3 Fillies | 34 Still Due


Two more in the barn, and we still have a colt/filly tie.

GCh. Powerful Soul x Ch. Rosearia - ICh. Unabridged
9.2h dark bay filly

First foal for homebred Rosearia by our stallion, Powerful Soul. Rosearia is an older spelling for the name of a character in a series of fantasy books I’ve been working on for quite a few years now. In the current iteration of the story (and the one I have finally settled on), Rosearia is the descendant of a goddess and a member of an elite fighting force known as the Crimson Knights.

NCh. Tense Imagination x She’s Got It - NCh. Mr. Prospective
9.1h brown colt

Fourth foal for She’s Got It. Her only current runner, 2024 filly She’s No Fool (I’m No Fool), is 2 for 2 in her career so far and already a stakes winner. Here’s to hoping the newbie follows that trend.

4 Colts | 4 Fillies | 32 Still Due


Lovely foals! The premise of your book sounds like a page turner as well!

Haha. Thanks. That’s the hope. XD

So excited to see this healthy baby in the stable this morning!

GCh. Northern Invasion x GCh. Incandescent - ICh. Candidate (G)
9.3h chestnut colt

Third foal (and colt!) for this MSW mare. Her oldest baby debuts this year.

5 Colts | 4 Fillies | 31 Still Due


And another colt!

Ch. Quirky Scent x Calico Flower - NCh. The Fighting Fifty (B)
9.3h black colt

Named in part after his grandsire, Prince of Wonder. Calico Flower is up for sale.

6 Colts | 4 Fillies | 30 Still Due


Stillborn colt
GCh. Final Scene x After The Rain - WCh. Crystal Rainbow (S)

Welp. It finally happened. First stillborn of the season.

After The Rain has been placed up for sale.

Sorry for your lost foal.

The boys are in the lead so far this year.

NCh. Tense Imagination x Lillyofthevalley - ICh. Stressed (B)
9.2h black colt

Kinda surprised the name wasn’t already taken. Lilly has produced four foals so far, all colts. Her oldest has yet to make his 3YO debut, so not sure what kind of producer she’ll turn out to be in the long run. Still, her oldest is a winner already, so there’s promise there if nothing else.

7 Colts | 4 Fillies | 1 Stillborn | 28 Still Due


NCh. Hollywood Knight x Amethyst - GCh. Starzen (B)
8.1h brown colt

Third foal for MW/MP Amethyst. Amethyst scored a speed record at 7f on turf. Her oldest, 2YO Tiefling, debuts this year.

NCh. Flames of Passion x Ch. Limelight (P) - GCh. Stagehand (S)
8.2h black colt

Half brother to MSW NCh. Fractal and SP Ch. Ermine Order. Of 8 foals, this is only Limelight’s second colt.

9 Colts | 4 Fillies | 1 Stillborn | 26 Still Due


And…we’ve got another boy in the barn! XD

NCh. Fool To Be Smokin’ x NCh. Fractal - NCh. Changeling
8.3h bay colt

Super happy to see this mama/baby pair happy and healthy! The first thing I thought of when picking a name was “Smoke and Mirrors,” but that’s been taken (no surprise there) so I thought I’d pull a bit from the Changeling bloodline for this one. In real-life folklore, changelings were a type of fey, and in D&D the fey come…well…from the Feywild. Lol.

This is the second foal out of my multi-G1 winning homebred mare.

10 Colts | 4 Fillies | 1 Stillborn | 25 Still Due


Finally another filly!

NCh. Northern Invasion x Ch. Major Sunset - GCh. Major’s Flight (B)
9.3h chestnut filly

Second foal and filly for this MSW (and G1 W/P) mare. While Major’s Flight is listed as a bronze broodmare sire, as breeders themselves, both of Major Sunset’s parents are gold-ranked, so fingers crossed she lives up to that with her progeny.

Today would have been my dad’s birthday, so I thought I would lean into a more nostalgic name for this one.

10 Colts | 5 Fillies | 1 Stillborn | 24 still due


Apparently forgot to log in yesterday with all the IRL stuff going on, so came back to two newbies in the stable. And wouldn’t you know it? They’re both colts. Lol.

NCh. Straticus (B) x All Those Glasses (G) - Created
8h brown colt

Last night was a D&D night and the group I run a game for arrived in a place called the Crystal City. Figured glass and crystal were close enough that it would be a fitting name for this little dude.

GCh. Powerful Soul x Ch. Wooden Approval - NCh. Void (S)
7.1h dark bay colt

This boy is TINY! Decided to keep with the plant theme in his name.

12 Colts | 5 Fillies | 1 Stillborn | 22 still due


Congrats on the Straticus colt! It’s bittersweet seeing his last crop arrive.

Like a Charm is for sale.

GCh. Dark Debate x Fine Trick - GCh. Harvard Bound (B)
8.3h bay filly

Not completely sold on the name but it’ll do for now. Glad to see another filly in the barn for a change. Lol. This little one adds another member to the Executive Session family. Fine Trick is a half-sister to Platinum-ranked Limelight.

Fine Trick completely blew her mid-March booking to our stallion, Quirky Scent, so if anyone is interested feel free to request it.
