Charette was inbred to stdu Versatile chef de race Northern Dancer 3,3 through two sons. In summary, she got the high-class Fly North, the plodder Aura of Glory but possibly top-class broodmare and 1 start Classique to the track.

Put back to Kris S. Junior Alvarado has the call Friday from post 4. Since most new stallions fail, putting a near maiden mare to an untested stallion is not a good way of maximizing chances of producing a classic runner.

Sesking conors would run up the bids when they had seen Virginia bid. Fly North is a bay mare foaled on February 7, in Kentucky.

I loved the Hail To Reason line and he was both a good sire and broodmare sire in case we got a daughter. This was a bad choice on my part in retrospect, as Halo has produced nothing but plodders from Northern Sunset blood.

Behind the scenes, the story of farda amiga (september )

I knew that it was likely that it would take more than one generation with the mares we bought to get a classic winner, so we often celebrated the birth of a nicely conformed daughter. Right after that race, Virginia was offered a mid-six digit offer for Fly North, but said no. He earned Virginia a trip to the Japan Cup as a 6yo. I believe that he was at Payson Sewking at the Seeklng.

The training in Europe was much more conducive to young, developing horses than in North America. Charette was bred to A. I had my own dosage system inhaving expanded on the dosage systems of Colonel Vuillier and Dr. We were led to believe that this was a firzt nice colt.

As a baby she was pretty much liked according to the foal reports I have and she has raced well enough. The mare was in foal to Pleasant Colony and that mating looked every bit as promising. We would aim at producing foals that had both soundness and stamina. Out right front, not bad.

Failure in the thoroughbred industry is often the result of thinking knowledge gained in another business is transferable to the thoroughbred industry. She was on top of my list to buy for the following reasons. Inwe went back to the well again with Pleasant Colony. They often threw top-class runners and were quite versatile in that they went well with many different types of sires.

She won her first two starts at Calder as a 3yo. From one month after her birth through the Keeneland Sale inFarda Amiga was inspected 16 times for conformational strengths and weaknesses.

In addition, she has two extra crosses of Nearco ,66 through Nearctic and Mossborough and Mahmoud 66, entirely through Pleasant Colony. Like so Pajson thoroughbred operations, Lac Ouimet and Salem Drive did not have their books screened by someone capable of assisting them to become better stallions.

Broad Brush was for real. Jovite was well put together.

Pleasant Colony was a perfect fit for Northern Sunset. Would have hated to eat those words. Payson noted that her chief breeding consultant, George William Smith, saw things in this pattern, the way these families fit. The key to success in the thoroughbred industry is industry-specific knowledge. I searched my files, but could not find when the gelding was done. Much as the ability to read and write requires learning each letter of the alphabet, the combinations that form words and what the words mean in the context that they are written, interpreting pedigrees correctly requires even more effort and time.

Apparently, Virginia was not the easiest to live with when her horses were running badly. While Charles was an equestrian he was not much involved in the thoroughbred industry. She was unplaced on the dirt in one start. People think it is the easiest thing to do, but it is not. Broad Brush Seeming showed good speed, which indicated to me that the Turn-To influence amongst others was influencing his foals.

While he must get it wrong occasionally, he is the best I known of when dealing with functional conformation. Classique has a bay colt by Silver Deputy that was foaled on Feb 20, At 18 months, toes out left firstt at stand, walks well, decent size, good Serking, strength, nice shoulder and hip, good body, great eye, walks close in front, cut under knees, very good for a Broad Brush, classy looking filly, like her. The foal Powder and her baby brother are thus the product of two inbred parents.

Lac Ouimet was more plain and taller, but still nice. Virginia raced him in her colors and the win in the Travers Stake at the classic distance of a mile and a quarter clinched him for the mating to Dry North.

Ashford Evening was foaled on April 29,indicating she only caught on the fifth heat cycle. Riverscape won in the United Kingdom and was sent to Norway where he won their Guineas and some of the top races in Scandinavia. Remember this was before Farda Amiga burst on to the scene and Virginia was trying to cull her mares or recently retired firet fillies. The major knock against the mating was that in it was his third season at stud more Russian Roulette, especially since Northern Sunset had also no foals to race at the time.
