Moving Along

Some good-byes are harder than others. Monday I cried as the gavel went down on Hip # 178 at the Fasig-Tipton Yearling sale. It meant that Rose dela Troienne 16 is shipping to Korea…. I loved him too much.  Yes, it does happen…loving them too much.  Ours is a business and I know in my head that we will be selling most of our babies, but still sometimes it’s hard to see them go off to another owner…hoping someone will continue to kiss him on his nose and tell him he’s a winner. Those of you who have stayed at the farm know how the babies steal your heart, and how the mares look you in the eye and remind you how much they trust you to love them. I miss all the babies, yearling or mares who leave the farm.  And, as you can see from the photo at left, our staff as well is sometimes sad to see the youngsters graduate to their next stage. Speaking of which, we have registered names to share with you of horses from the farm.  Yankton is the Miss Dixie Rose 15.  We still own him, he had planned to debut at Keeneland, but had a small setback so he’s back at the farm rehabbing.  Daddy’s Diva is the Empire Diva 15 filly by Scat Daddy.  She’s owned by WC Racing, was in California training for her first start and unfortunately developed a bad knee.  Her owners decided to send her back to the farm for rehabbing and then will breed her to Goldencents and hopefully produce a great runner. Carateracho is the Maxnmacy 15...
