Starfish Stables current breeding plans for 2017

We have 7 active stallions at the Farm this year and one new Stallion definitely joining our breeding ranks next year. We have the potential for another 6 or 7, depending on their performances in the last part of this year. As we don’t want to have so many active Stallions, we will shortly be listing three of our current Stallions for sale.

We bought both of these last year needing 1 SW in the hope that we could get them qualified, however, we have been unable to get them that last SW, so may sell them and let somebody else try their luck.

I like conspiracy theory it would be nice if he qualified :slight_smile:

I know but I think that he (Paranoia) is past it. I paid $150,000 for him and, at the moment, I don’t know if he’s even worth 1/10th of that.

I’ll probably decide in the next few days whether I’m definitely going to cut my losses on both him and Attheheartofitall and sell them as is, and, if so, what price I’m going to ask for them.

I understand that I had a great boy at 2 then he just went blah and he runs in the money maybe 2 out of every 6 races if Im lucky

Well done, Lewis! If you do get them all qualified, I would be hard-pressed to name another stable who has qualified and retired so many freshman sires in one year.
