Who Says They Don’t Have Christmas in Kentucky? *

Given Our Flourishing Economy, it seems that every horse who has ever looked through a bridle is for sale. Need a budget stallion prospect? How about Great Hunter?

Or perhaps you are in the market for a good racemare who’s moved into the breeding game? Well, you’re in luck – there are loads!

While we know you really want to breed them, we’ll at least pretend the following might also be racing prospects:

Or why not just retire and breed the 2-year-old? After all, as her page notes, ‘…she’s got her G1!’ I would invite that special buyer to check out Stardom Bound.

And, of course, there’s Better Than Honour. I understand she’s produced a few nice foals in her time.

The abundance of top mares on the block makes me recall the classic line from Better Off Dead:

“Now that’s a real shame when folks be throwin’ away a perfectly good white boy like that.”

That’s not unlike how I feel about seeing Intangaroo, Pure Clan or Zaftig (not to mention Stardom Bound, although in her case I am giving everyone the benefit of the doubt and assuming she is a legitimate racing prospect) heading off to retirement – but hey, they’ll all go cheap, right? Someone has to make this ‘downturn’ work for them!

  • Winston...not really

    How is one possibly in foal?

    As I understand it, pregnancy is a binary state. You either are or you aren’t.

    Are these studs worried about child support?

  • Superfecta

    Very true!

    I suspect they were bred too close to the printing date of the massive catalogue and no one wanted to say for certain and misrepresent the goods on offer in those cases.

    Soon it will be enough to simply have been entered in a G1!

    Everyone’s a prospect I guess.

    “Once stood next to Big Brown!”

    “Stepped in Curlin’s dookie!”

    BTW, what a great film – “I want my two dollars!!”

    Cheers
