There is no "boycott" going on, they are their culls.

Were you there fireslam to know first hand what the reason is?

Let's just say someone is not well liked and there was a point trying to be made and leave it at that.

No, Im not there. However, I know several buyers that are there and have already bought horses. They looked at every horse in the first 3 sessions, and all said the same thing, that they were Adena's culls. Their words, not mine.

Thanks to everyone who posted about the Giant's Causeway/Honey Ryder colt. I have followed that female familly with interest for years, and was basically appalled when I saw the foal went so cheap. I didn't know the inside scoop, though, so appreciate the insight. I still hope the foal has some success. It can't help who consigned it!

I did notice that Honey Ryder's dam, Cuando Quiere, had a Bernardini filly who sold earlier in the session for $400K+. I believe the dam's previous filly, also a Bernardini, went for $300K plus. I just hope they don't ruin Honey Ryder as a broodmare.

The Adena broodmares represented are hardly "culls" but I could believe that physically they were representative of the entire first book compared to previous years.

Casperina
Elloluv
Lady Joanne
Marimba Rhythm

The Storm Cat colt #47 (not theirs) was swaybacked and he still went for 300K so they must be hoping it's just a growth issue.

FWIW, I know some people back there looking at virtually every horse and shopping in the 6 figure range who didn't get the memo on an Adena boycott.

Boycott, not so sure, the goings on of Adena currently are no different from any other day, really.

I do realize that Mr. Frank is a wee bit of a volatile character, but In many ways he has done a lot for racing. As someone who is a very tiny breeder in Ontario, I am grateful for Adena bringing new stallions to our program as pickings have always been slim for us & they are I believe bringing another 4 new Stallions up in 2011.

The Stallion Station they are building will be terrific for Ontario Breeding. We need all the help we can get.


We have our Ontario bred Colt that didn't sell in the CTHS sale September 7th, hanging out at home right now, not sure what to do with him yet. I really struggle with where the sale should go from here?

Thoughts?

Buyers may be starting to say, "Five foals of racing age and no winners . . . You gotta be kidding me!"

In france with the standardsbreds, the societe general (the jockeyclub) forces you to take such a broodie out of production.
As the broodies products, after five times a non winner, are not elegible for any
preminuns any more. In france that is 60% bonus up to the purses

What's the story with 2 Henny Hughes yearlings going for 1,000 (essentially not bid)?

Ahhh, that's the information I missed! :lol:
I don't know anything about her foals and I kind of forget it's so many years since she was racing... Now I understand. Thanks :)
