I have 3 mares I’m breeding in 2013, and I’m looking for good matches.
Flirtatious is a created broodie, and has one foal (by Tiznow) on the ground, and is due with a Dark Continent foal.
Touchdown has raced this past year, and I am retiring her to brood for 2013. She likes mid-length Turf.
Dancing Time is a 4.4 (silver) rated mare, and a Native Dancer granfoal. She has never been raced.
Studs to possibly breed to:
Strike It Rich (2.5k)
Prince of Wonder (2.5k)
It really depends on what your budget it is. I would always breed to the best that you can afford. Higher prices doesn’t always mean higher quality, though. I would imagine you’re probably looking in the $25,000 and under price range, which tends to be the younger stallions or stallions that might throw consistent winners, but not stakes winners.
If you’re willing to take the risk, I would really recommend taking a chance on some of the unproven stallions just coming off the track, or just recently retired within the past couple years. A lot of them have really nice lines. It’s your chance to get in on the ground floor before the foals start running and the prices sky-rocket.
Good luck with that Dark Continent baby. I’m really excited about his get. =)
