Re: Phipps Horses

3 yearlings are due to be sold at the September sales. A named colt out of Daydreaming and a couple of fillies from Trophy Wife and Streaker. The remaining yearlings are a nice group, particularly the fillies. We shall see if a couple of fillies are bought at the sales next month and added to the gr...

Re: Matings 2018

IIRC, Danzig and his sons have a reputation for less-than-spectacular fertility. :? Has anyone else also heard that? Its not just Danzig's line. Its the Northern Dancer line. Obviously its not all of them either. Ones I can think of off the top of my head, Snaafi Dancer, Cigar, Lure, George Washing...

Just over 900,000 for the four horses. Snap Decision was withdrawn and Bokeelia Island didn't sell. Gives a little bit of pocket money for the yearling sale in September.

Re: Phipps Horses

They're all fine. Always good to dream of what they can be in a few years...

9 of the 13 yearlings are fillies and are a particularly nice group. They have yet to be named officially. Particular favorites are the Abaco, Matlacha Pass and the Salute fillies. Time will tell.

Re: Phipps Horses

Breaking the Rules made a pleasing debut, particularly given that the colt had little running room. Originally due to debut at Saratoga as a 2yo before a setback, the colt is the 2nd foal and 2nd winner for Protesting. Breaking the Rules is the first of 2 really nice 3yo's from War Front.

Re: Phipps Horses

Fly So High was fine this morning but the tweak to her upper suspensory will be enough for her to miss the Oaks. The filly will have a bit of a break and Shug plans to bring her back for the big summer races, particularly looking forward to running her over two turns. Barrier Island was also given a...

Re: Phipps Horses

Very true, although there are 8 quality fillies from last year's crop.

There is no rush with Emancipation. Expect to see him debut in NY.

Personal Time (full brother) has come on an awful lot since his last race and should go close next time.

Re: Phipps Horses

All of the Janney and Phipps foals have been colts, so far.

Bail Out has been working nicely and makes his debut in saturday. Fly So High continues to be trained for the Davona Dale.

Breed the best to the best and hope for the best. That said, confirmation is key, stats and algorithms, not so much :)

Re: Phipps Horses

Barrier Island has been nominated for the Gasparilla Stakes in a couple of weeks at Tampa Bay. Fun fact is that her older half sister is Gasparilla Inn. Fly So High is doing well after her recent win, albeit still pretty green. The filly will be trained for the Davona Dale, assuming that she respond...
