I think it's interesting that Fipke says she doesn't fit too many stallions. Mentioned only two that she does fit, Unbridled's Song and Medaglia d'Oro. Guess we'll have lots of "confusable" names for many years to come, lol.

I'm not exactly sure what he means By "fits."

Who knows with Fipke. He's a little quirky and I've grown rather fond of him. I read the book about him, Fire Into Ice, years ago. He really does march to a different drummer.

Yeah, he's never boring, until it comes time to name his horses :roll: I don't see why she wouldn't fit with Uncle Mo or something from the Empire Maker line. Or, heck, why not Arrogate?

I agree. The only stallion he might think for sure isn't a good fit for Lemons Forever is Perfect Soul. It's so funny that's his system for remembering the breeding of each of his babies, and yet after awhile I wonder if even he can remember which one did what without checking.

Funny, because when he bought her, his quote was, "She's perfect for Perfect Soul." I don't think either of her offspring by him could get out of their own way.

Haha, I didn't remember him saying that. But I wonder if that's part of the reason he thinks she doesn't fit too many stallions.

I'd be willing to bet the farm Fun House will bred to Gun Runner too. Along with most of the graded winners by Tapit Ron Winchell owns.

That's how Candy Ride got started: the Craigs spent the first two years sending him every mare they owned.
