    Breeding Odds and Ends

    I just noticed that Nostra Villa has been sold to NSW
    You would think that she should have cost a pretty penny
    Although U59 has not been a strong family, this Art Major mare could become a valuable broodmare when she finishes racing with nothing but quality sires throughout her pedigree
    She is not a one off either as dam Crystal Journey also produced Gp1er Mister Jadore

    Net Ten Eom is a sire I had not noticed before (has a winner in Van Niekerk at Bendigo tonight)

    He has 1.49.4 to his name as a 3yo but only won $140k US
    He was bred in the purple however being by Triple millionaire Somebeachsomewhere out of Double millionaire Glowing Report. Glowing Report is also a full sis to Well Said's dam Must See. And Must See is also the 2nd dam of Emerald Stride (recent 2yo Redwood winner)
    The family U115 was insignificant until Grand Lady 1993 came along (the source of all the above)

    He has been given his chance in NZ with 38 of racing age and 31 more on the ground. His fertility was poor but has improved since a terrible 2017
    Unfortunately this is likely to be of no avail as he is yet to produce a notable performer
    You can explore some more from this classicfamilies link if you are interested

    We've had 2 Racing Hill yearlings complete their second prep and the reports are that they both go very nicely! Looks like RH throws a nice type. Anyone else have a Racing Hill foal anecdote?

    What happened to Huntsville US who served 205 mares for 130 foals for Empire Stallions in 2018-19?

    Peaces Of You, Final Peace.
    I notice that Yirribee stud has some great discount on most of their stallions this year due to the virus. I hope other studs take notice.
    Well done to them.
    Don't die wondering !

    Hi Noel

    I think you will find that there a lot of things in place to make the stud season work, the studs are making every effort to make sure everything works, please don't be negative.

    Breeding horses requires HEAPS of patience.
    Reading the article about the Ronans

    https://www.thetrots.com.au/news/art...-the-sunshine/

    I looked up Yes Mate who, as mentioned in the article, is making his debut in R1 at Echuca tonight
    He is the only foal of one of their mares who has been served by some commercial sires but who was it that got the positive - the home breeder Daroobalgie.
    Daroobalgie had a good record but as a Nuke Of Earl son out of Mistress Monique, an Apollo Eleven mare, there was no miracle and he is a very modest sire
    If you have never heard of Apollo Eleven, that might be because Mistress Monique ($83k) was his only progeny to pay her way

    Those who patronized him will be happy to see his progeny win 2 heats of the NY Sires Stakes (Races 1 & 5)
