Too Early To Post about Upcoming 2011 Foals?

Tall Oaks is expecting a slightly larger number of foals due next year than there has been in our last two breeding seasons.

Whirl It has been bred to Hope To Succeed and is due at the end of March. We’re hoping for a little girl from this pairing since Hope To Succeed has the best success with his daughters. Whirl It produced Breeders’ Cup Juvy Fillies winner Spinning Hill, Nashua stakes winner Proletariat, and Caltech Handicap winner Give It A Whirl. Based on Succeed’s wins in the Kentucky Derby and Belmont stakes and Whirl’s GOT this foal looks like it’ll be a long distance racer. Whirl’s rated as a Gold.
Tentative Names: Spinning Success (filly)/ Helicopter (colt)

Thinking of Dreams was bred back to Gimme A Shot a couple of weeks after Gimme My Dreams was born. We’re hoping for a colt from the second breeding but a filly would be good too. Gimme A Shot had an amazing 2005 and 2006 foal crop all coming out stakes placed or multiple stakes winners. He had one placer and one multiple stakes winner in his 2007 crop and none of 2008 foals have raced yet. Thinking of Dreams had produced 2 winners and her 2008 filly is unraced. Dreams is rated as a Bronze.
Tentative Names: Dream Shot (colt)/ Gimme My Dream (filly)

Dark Love was bred to Simply Heroic. Simply Heroic raced out his last year for Windward Farms and then was sold to Outlaws Incorpated. He earned over a million dollars and comes from a classy broodmare line. His gelded full brother is a stakes winner and Simply Heroic became Heroic Lass’s first MSW. His dam’s half-sister produced Florida Derby, UAE Derby, and Australian Derby winner Duplicate Copy. Dark Love has produced one stakes winner colt Pitch Black by Affirmed. Love is rated as a Silver.
Tentative Name: Heroic Love (filly/colt)

Deadly Game was bred to Temptation. Temptation is a son of the Storybook bred Callie and the incredible sire Cross Roads. This foal will be a 3/4 sibling to Game’s first filly Murder She Wrote who is racing pretty well. Temptation raced for three years and earned over a milion dollars meeting up with champions such as King David, Cutlass, Strider, Foolhardy, Ring of Fire, etc. This foal will be the last of a small crop of foals from Temptation’s first to be born. Game is also rated as a Bronze.
Tentative Name: Deadly Temptations (colt/filly)

Whirlagirl was bred to another Storybook stallion Crystal Rainbow. What can I say the Storybook studs are awesome.  :lol: Whirlagirl is the last mare out of 9 mares bred to Rainbow to foal for next year. He has a reasonable stud fee for a first year sire. A son of A Diamond Jewel who produced 3 MSWs in a row all by amazing stallions. Girl is rated as a Bronze.
Tentative Names: Crystal Whirl (colt)/ Rainbow Girl (filly)

Flaming Possibility was bred to our very own My Lucky Day. Flaming Possibility comes from a pretty good family with her sire being Distinct Possibility who has 2 MSWs and 1 SP. Golden Flames hadn’t done to bad in the breeding shed. She’s not a Patriot Games or a Miss Hayday but 6 out of her 8 foals have been on the board with a combined total of $234,150 with her three year old colt being the largest money earner out of all of them. My Lucky Day’s first foal to hit the track Attheendoftheday races on Saturday. Flaming Possibility has a strong gene for turning out colts but fillies are dominant with My Lucky Day. Golden Flames and Distinct Possibility both have more daughters than sons so we’ll see how their foal turns out.
Tentative Names: Flaming Luck (colt)/ Luck’s Flames (filly)

Golden Legend was another one bred to My Lucky Day. She comes from a good sire Black Legend who has 3 MSWs, 4 SP, 5 SW. My Lucky Day did best at the long distance races at 2, raced as a sprinter at 3 and did SC at 4. Golden Legend’s only win was at 3 in a 7 furlong GIII but she was tried over the SC at 4 and didn’t do to well. Golden Flames mostly has foals who raced at sprints until Admiraless who raced and placed at SC anywhere between 10.5 fulongs and 13 furlongs. Sea Aflame unlike most of his siblings races best at 10 furlongs. Miss Hayday has foals who like all kinds of races so it’s hard to tell what kind of race this foal will like.
Tentative Name: Golden Luck (colt/filly)

Royalle was our last mare to be bred to a first time sire GCH. Major’s Flight. The expecting foal will be Royalle’s second that will be sired by a first year stallion. Major’s Flight was Jazz It Up’s first son to become a stallion so we are very excited about Royalle’s foal. Coming from three GCH stallions we hope Royal will have a colt to follow in their footsteps and become a third generation GCH in Major’s family.
Tentative Names: Royal Flight (colt)/ Dashing Jazz (filly)

Strobe Light was also bred to a first time sire Magic Glory. Yet again Strobe was bred to Storybook Farm stallion. Strobe Light raced 15 times, won twice, 5 seconds with one Stakes place, 2 shows and one  Stakes third. Earned just a little over a hundred thousand on the track and raced exclusively over the jumps. Hopefully with Strobe’s like of 8 and 9.5 furlong SC races and Magic Glory’s love of anywhere from 7 furlongs to 14 furlongs we hope that the resulting foal takes to the 7-14 furlong SC races.
Tentative Names: Magic Lightz (filly)/Light of Glory (colt)

In Absentia, a purchase from Windward Farms was bred to our new stallion Secretsarebound. Absentia is ranked as Silver. The dam of MSW Back Roads Absentia was the only mare bred to Secret and hopefully this foal will be Absentia’s next SW and Secret’s first big runner.
Tentative Names: Far From Truth (filly/colt)

Lil Miss Lucky, a purchase from one of the Auctions was basically a throw caution to the wind type of purchase. Unraced and in foal with her first by Mr. Townsend. She might not have attracted a lot of attention but Mr. Townsend is great. Half-sibling to 4 MSWs and out of a Gold broodmare his first foals race next year. Lil Miss Lucky has a pretty good pedigree being by Best Brush and out of a Sharpen Up mare.
Tentative Names: Townsend Luck (colt)/Miss Townsend (filly)

Last Fling, another purchase from an Auction is just a year younger than Whirl It and is in foal with her second foal by Highland Magic. Once again a Storybook stud, hopefully next year I’ll be breeding my own homebreds out of my broodies and by my two stallions. This foal crop was our largest since joining the game nearly three years ago with only three foals not bred by Tall Oaks.
Tentative Names: Last Magic (colt)/ Highland Fling (filly)

Never too early to boast of something you should be proud of! :slight_smile: Looks like you put some genuine thought into your breedings, should be nice foals!

Thanks I can’t wait to see how they turn out.

My studs appreciate the compliments :slight_smile:. Especially glad to see people taking a risk on Temptation. I dunno that he’ll be worth it, but we’ll see. :slight_smile: Hopefully he’ll surprise me.

(See, even I retire studs for emotional reasons :wink:)

Same here. Thanks for helping in the shameless pimpage of Heroic :lol: I hope you get a nice baby from him!

Well here are my babies to be so far-

My mare, Texas Cowgirl (NCh. KC Wonder Boy X Texas Rose) had a visit with Temptation. She made just over $115,000.  I hope that this will be a good cross.

Shameka, A mare that I recived as a broodmare when I joined from final furlong, visted Blue Ensign. Shameka was retired by FF with 10 carrer stats with a winnings total of $77,650. Pretty good for 10 starts!!

Both stallions that have been bred to my mares are grey. I wonder what the foals will look like??!! This will be a first foal for both mares so I hope they will both do well.  I am hoping that the stallions’ running abilities rub off on the foals. But I guess we own’t know that for 3 more yaers!! 2014, wow that seems so far away!

I’m gonna be expecting nine babies this next season:

All Night Long (due Mar. 2nd) has been bred to Almost Home. Tentative name for the foal is Calliin Baton Rouge.

Only three mares :slight_smile:

Executioner, multi placed with only yearlings, went to Highland Wizard. Due 1/31. Thinking about Highland Execution I have too many ____ Execution foals :stuck_out_tongue: I was thinking Heartagram for a foal, so maybe that name will go to this foal.

Intent to Charm, no foals and no track record, went to Omaha. Due 3/4. Thinking about [color=red]Quietly Charming or [color=blue]Badlucksmyonlyluck

Spectacular Powers, unraced with multi winners, went to Highland Pride. Due 2/7. Thinking about Fire Lord

Housebuster x Circus Music
Chamber music was a claiming mare, that I decided to retire. truthfully I claimed her to experiment with breeding. She’s in foal to Blue Ensign, in hopes to throw some roan but I don’t think my plan will work. I also like Blue Ensign’s name ;D reminds me of Star Trek so be prepaired for a Star Trek Themed name. Be Warned! -evil laugh-

boy it’s my biggest year yet! I’ve got 17 mares in foal! woo-hoo! Looks like i’ll need to do a reduction foal before the foals come… Anyways, here they are!

All For You in foal to Worth The Wait due on the 4/6/11. All for you is a silver mare with quite a few stakes horses under her belt and Worth The Wait is unproven so far but he’s got great breeding and a great track record. Should be a nice foal

Classic Kentucky in foal to No Duplicate due on the 6/10/11. She’s a bronze mare and No Duplicate has had some really nice foals… we’ll see about this one…

Confirmative in foal to Rahy due 1/11/11. She’s fresh of the track and Rahy has never had foals… So it’s a guessing game how this baby will do.

Crucial Move in foal to Cross Roads due 5/5/11. She’s a bronze mare but cross roads has had some supurb foals.

Don’t Ask in foal to Highland Bandit due 01/02/11. Don’t Ask was a decent runner and is fresh of the track, Bandit has many supurb foals. They should produce something great.

Dream On in foal to Devil May Care due 7/3/11. She’s a bronze mare with a few stakes runners. Devil has only had 3 foals run and all 3 ran well in stakes, lets hope this passes to all his foals.

Dreams of You in foal to  What’s It Worth due 4/4/11. A silver mare with a few stakes runners. Worth has had some phenominal foals, i have no doubt this foal will be the same… Hoping for a filly!

Expressway Kiss in foal to Heza Gallant Gent, Due 01/09/11. She’s fresh of the track, was a decent runner. Who knows how the foal will be

Flawless in foal to Devil May Care due 1/1/11, a scary date! Hope she’s born late… She too is fresh of the track, a MSP runner, should make a nice foal.

Gilded Discovery in foal to Crystal Rainbow due 3/8/11. Another fresh from the track. A mediocre runner, maybe Crystal Rainbow’s success will make up for that.

Jet Set Jenny in foal to Akhetnaten, due 2/4/11. Unproven with her foals, only one has ever ran. None of the sires foals have ever ran either. We’ll see

Kapu Hoku in foal to Go For Dash due 5/11/11. None of her foals have ran yet, dash has had some suceess in his foals. This foals hould be a runner.

Lady Gambler in foal to What’s It Worth due 5/6/11. A silver mare with many SP foals. This worth foal should be a top notch runner.

No Telling in foal to Irish River due 1/30/11. A decent runner, and I LOVE irish river for who knows why… So i’m keeping this foal no matter how they run!

Outbreak in foal to War Chant due 1/4/11. Fresh from the track, a solid runner. Toss up how the foal will be.

Reason Enough in foal to Take Me To Hollywood due 6/10/11. A gold mare with 90% of her foals being SW. The sire just went to stud but has great lines and an awesome track record.

Try To Catch Me in foal to The Black due 4/8/11. A good runner, none of her foals have run yet. The Black has sired some VERY nice foals.

But my Laird army needs to have some ponies to breed to, and if they’re all half-sibs it sort of poses a problem.  However, I now how two qualified studs (High Chances and Dark Continent).  This means I can breed these babies to High Chances for the Laird line and the Laird babies to Dark Continent.  It’s a beautiful match. =D

Musicbox Dancer doesn’t exist but MusicboxDancer does. She is one of Artful Acres’s starter horses. Just thought I’d let you know. :slight_smile:

Seems liket there’s going to be a lot of great 2011 foals! :wink:

First breeding for me.  ;)

tentative names: [color=blue]Legerity, [color=red]Strut Your Stuff
Kelly Do is in foal with Backseat Driver, due on July 2. This year is the first breeding season for my mare and me, and Backseat Driver has bred before, but none fo his foals are old enough to have raced yet, so I have no idea how the foal is going to turn out. Yet, I have high hopes because of Backseat Driver’s parents being gold breeding ranking and him being a successful runner. I picked this stallion for a cheap stud with a nice history; he fit perfectly. So I’ll keep my fingers crossed on my first foal.

Good luck to Kelly and my first crop!

A doozy of a breeding season with 16 mares.

Bright Star II (Cross Roads X Shining Bright) will be having her second foal.  Both of this mare’s parents are Silver rated so I hope she can follow.  On the track she was fairly consistent, but not great.  She is bred to Go For Dash this year and is due Jan. 9.  Go For Dash is a nice little stud and I hope for a good allowance horse from this breeding.  Foal will possibly be for sale in the future.

Candy Perfect (Northern Slew x Mi’Lady) will also be having her second foal.  This mare spent the later parts of her life as a Steeplechaser with some success, and so has been bred to Lonesome Glory for a Jan. 6th foal.

Cheersfromthecrowd (Running Gold x La Camargue) Is a maiden mare.  I bought her from the auction pre-bred to Red Sunset for a May 6th foal.  She was also fairly sucessful on the track.  Another foal that will likely be for sale (I may need my own auction! :O)

Dark Times (Dark Knight x Wonder Why)  is also in for her 2nd foal (see a pattern yet?)  This mare had endurance on the track, running until she was 5.  She has been bred to The Black in hopes of a good lower grade stakes quality foal.  This foal may or may not be for sale and is due on the 5th of June.

Is She High (Highland Rouge x Is She Kinda Magic) has been bred to No Duplicate for a foal due on Feb 3rd.  She was not remarkable on the track, but Rouge is known for having pretty broodmares.  No Duplicate is a Silver rated stallion whose few foals on the track have had good success.  I will likely keep this foal until I see how it’s siblings do.

Key To My Heart (Heart Of Stone x Backstage Pass) is a Silver rated mare (7.3) in foal to Akhetnaten and due May the 8th.  Her 2yo is stakes placed, so we’re hoping for some early power with this foal.  May or may not be for sale, depends mostly on gender haha.

Lady’s HiPride (ICh. Highland Pride x Smooth Talkin Lady) was way underpowered on the track.  In an effort to create a nicer pony, I have bred her to Planet Hollywood for a Jan 8th baby.  Hopefuly the Hollywood/Highland cross will work out here and we’ll have ourselves a nice baby.  Foal will not be for sale.

Last Minute Panic (Captain Jack x Last Challenge) is one of my favorite broodmares right now.  She really proved herself on the track, going from claimers to stakes in style.  She has been bred to the  honorable Crystal Rainbow for a foal due on Jan 6th.

Memento (Flash’s Image x Dream On), a bronze rated mare, is in the Select Auction.  She is in foal to my stallion Simply Heroic for an April Fool’s baby.

Ch.Pleasant Surprise (Pleasantville x Surprise Me) has been bred to Point Given and is due on April the 9th.  Pleasant Surprise raced sucessfuly until she was 6 years old, this will be her 4th foal.  She has a Worth baby on the track that hasn’t raced yet.

GCh. Redemption (NCh. Killing Time x Never High Enough) was my former superstar.  Her dam is Platinum and her sire Silver, so we hope she will follow in the footsteps of her parents.  She has been bred to Devil May Care for a Jan 1st baby.  We pray that the baby comes on time or later, but we will take what we can get from such a nice mare.  Redemption herself is an MSW millionaire.  This foal will certainly not be for sale.

Redwood Honor (Redwood Prince x By Honor Bound) is also in foal to Simply Heroic for a March 1st baby.  Honor was fairly sucessful on the track, and this is her second foal.  The foal was bred by Paul, so even though I own both parents, this is not a homebred.

River Gal (River King x That’s My Gal) is a Silver rated mare (4.6) carrying her 9th foal.  This one is by Sneak Peek and is due April 6th.  This foal was also bred by Paul, though I picked out the cross.

Ch. What A Witch (What’s It Worth x Midnight Magic) is probably the best broodmare in the barn right now.  She is also in foal to Devil May Care and is due on April Fool’s day.  This mare is really nice, her first foal to race this year has been raced lightly, but fairly well.  Hopefuly this will be a nice baby.

Ch. Your Cash Treat (Silhouette x Ch. True Fletchings) is a mare that was MSP on the track and was a pretty nice racer.  I personaly love Silhouette mares, and have chosen to breed this one to Bold Ruler for her first foal.  This should be a pretty nice foal, and is due April 4th.

Yssandra (Yssellen x Essala) is also Silver rated (7.5) and is one of my favorite broodmares.  She is in foal to the venerable What’s It Worth for a May 10th baby.  We’re hoping for a filly, of course, but a colt is nice too.

Our broodmare band is slowly growing. I will not sacrifice quality over quantity. We have 14 foals due next year our biggest crop ever. More will be writen about the horses later but right now I am on my way to a horse show.
