Re: Tale of Ekati Foals

Here is kind of a funny one. Dark Vader and Draft Pick are stable mates (same trainer). Draft Pick was bought for 450K at the yearling sales. Dark Vader was bought for 150K at the 2yo in training sales. Both colts were born in 2015, Draft Pick in February and Dark Vader in March. Despite the prices...

Re: Tale of Ekati Foals

Totally Obsessed is a 3 year old full sister to Dark Vader and has won 4 out of 5 races this year including a 75K stakes race, mostly in Ohio. She has won 178K and change so far. Should win more. If I owned Dark Obsession, dam of Totally Obsessed and Dark Vader, I would keep on breeding her to Tale ...

Re: Tale of Ekati Foals

Despite not getting very big books of mares in recent years, Tale of Ekati does get a good one now and again, like Girvin, Verve's Tale ($636K), Tale of S'avall, Tale of Verve, who finished 2nd to American Pharoah in the Preakness, and Dark Vader should win a graded stakes before he is through, may...

Re: Sky Mesa Foals

I am surprised that Dynamic Sky has not been mentioned here. Dynamic Sky is a millionaire and graded stakes winner. Also, very versatile. He ran well on turf and on dirt placing in graded stakes on both surfaces. Also good running in long and short distances. Dynamic Sky is a stud now in Canada, but...

Tale of Ekati Foals

Dark Vader finished 2nd in the West Virginia Cornhusker Handicap (G3) by a neck last Friday (7/5/19).

Girvin's first year at stud this year. I wonder what kind of book of mares he has?

Re: Tale of S'avall

I was wondering that myself. His owner is very wealthy, so maybe Tale of S'avall can't race any more and the owner wants to keep him near by, like as a pet or something, rather than send him someplace where he doesn't figure to get that much action anyway. I wish I knew. I thought he was pretty good.
