Crystal, I've lived in England and travelled all over Europe, parts of the U.S. and been to 9 of Canada' 10 provinces & Lexington is always my 1st choice, of places to go when I have time from work. I absolutely love it there.

I graduated University in 91 & never really used the degree.. always went back to what I loved the most, the horses. I wish it was easier for us to move between the two countries, I'd move in a heart beat. :) One of my best friends, also a Canadian has lived in Lexington for 8 year's now.

Yes I can only imagine how great the male Swede's look period. lol

I have the book Lexington '78 & remember it so well, as it was the 1st year the Kentucky Horse Park was in operation. Canada won gold that year, Mark Ishoy, Juliet Bishop, Liz Ashton & Cathy Wedge.
Bruce Davidson won individual gold with the gorgeous gray "Might Tango"
It was the Eventing World Championships, & would be in year's to follow "the Rolex".

Now If I could just convince someone to give me a job lol I'd move!!!

Anybody see hip 1058 in the flesh? Any guesses why he RNA'd at $45,000?

didn't see the yearling in the flesh, did notice the "Western Canada" races in the 1st dam. Do you think that may have played a factor?

It takes 2 to make a bidding war or a reserve and only one person really interested to get what you feel is the "RIGHT" price.

I have seen consignor's over the years whine and cry about what their horse brought in the ring and yet didn't even like their own horse enough to put a reserve on it. Others that have the intelligence to know that sometimes it takes a good reserve to even get the interest going in the ring.

The sale did better than I expected it to.

As far as the back books and the prices sold for, if your a horseman, thats where the bargains are. There were some pretty nice potential broodmare prospects just off of pedigree alone that were dirt cheap. Genetic flaws are just that, genetic and something to stay away from but yearlings that may not have the best set of front wheels on them is more than likely a result of how that foal layed in the mare. It doesn't mean that their offspring is going to be afflicted with the same problem.

But I kind of got a kick out of the poster that stated that if they didn't get much attention at the barn they just withdrew them. I can remember many years ago I use to attempt to look at all the ones I liked off of a pedigree page. It was monotonous and ridiculous. I've found that most every horse I've ever bought thru Keeneland is standing in that back ring and watching. I watch it out back and I watch when they go in the ring and if I have a client for them for the price they are selling for that's when I bid. I've also bought many RNA's after they've gone thru the ring. That's the only time I go back to the barns and look. I can learn everything I need to know when they come up to the ring. I may think it's going to bring 50 or a 100 thousand when I look at that pedigree page and suddenly in the ring it's about to be hammered down for $15,000 , I've already watched it out back, thats when I bid, when suddenly one that I thought was worth much more is bringing a bargain price in my view of it.

Westover, she was raced extensively in western canada, however she ran at woodbine and won, and she ran something like 13 stakes in a row (see below her stakes races) undefeated. Earned a lot of cash, daughter of Wolf Power (is he not popular any more?), first foal, I would have thought he'd go higher than $45,000, I am assuming that was his reserve if he RNA'd? Be interesting to see what they do with the colt, he would have brought over $100,000 I think in an Canadian sale easily.

Thanks Shannon, I did look at the pedigree and thought it was quite nice. I just know people don't always take Western Canadian raced horses very seriously :( . I am surprised they didn't sell the yearling here in Canada as well, I think he would have been a big fish in a little pond.

Nice yearling, not really sure of the popularity of the sire.. that was my next question.

I would guess, if they didn't sell him privatley after, that he shows up in a 2yo in training sale somewhere.

I saw him. Whatever it was that kept his price down, it wasn't evident by looking at him.

I saw his pics on the web, he looked very well put together, good size, nice mover. I wasn't sure why he would have been RNA'd. Maybe he didn't vet very well? Anyone know if he got a live bid? I'm highly curious what his story is...

Regarding the Ghostzapper/Sunday Holiday filly (#2736), she was a late scratch. I saw her Monday and would describe her as medium sized, attractive, square/balanced, right fore carpal valgus toed out, sickle hocked to some degree. I did not vet her.

I would have to assume she was scratched for a lack of interest, but there could be other reasons.


Bobby Zapper (Ghostzapper/Sunday Holiday) filly just had her first work today at Santa Anita. 4 furlongs in 47 flat. 4th best out of 45 for the day. I suspect she'll make her first start at Del Mar. I'll be sure to be there!
