In 2012 I got a mare named Beat It in shipped to me to board and foal (I really don't do that but anyway...) and was abandoned. I ended up with that colt, that mare and two others in foal.. a mess to untangle. When the colt was 8 or 9 months old I gave him away. I had ensured everything I could do for his registration was done; ie stud certificate etc. He changed hands after that a time or two and, ironically, was traded back to me in late August of this year. I have just paid the $800 for his JC papers (it would be over $2000 tomorrow) and now am struggling to pick a name. He is a nice chestnut horse, now a gelding, well balanced and proportioned, just small. Great legs and bone. Hard headed and stubborn. He is by Ile St. Louis (CHI). Far as I can tell, he i the spitting image of Raise a Native - as a fun exercise I often look all the way up a pedigree to see which ancestor a horse resembles most.

SO, Names, anyone?

"Saint Louis Blues" is a jazz standard composed in 1914 by W. C. Handy. Only hitch is that "St. Louis Blues" is also the name of the city's hockey franchise.
