1 stakes (bloomer, by Alien Lasers)
1 allowance
2 solid

1 stakes (by Sleeping Dragon)
1 allowance
1 productive
3 solid

Paint (just scratch the T and it'll be accurate)
1 productive
1 solid

1 allowance
3 productive

Arabians and appaloosas were definitely a step up, paints a strong step down (had my first homebred stakes foal with a paint last year), quarters... exact same numbers, actually. I mostly dabble in these breeds though, have a bunch that run claimers but I have little grasp on pedigrees since I haven't had many mares worth breeding (mostly just grabbed lease mares for fun). But appy and arabian stakes is exciting, and I'm quite happy with eight stakes trotters :)

Appy Sprinters
$430,000 in stud fees ($19,545 average)
22 yearlings
Freaks: None
Stakes: Alien Lasers (5 from 10, 50%), Wings of Inferno (3 from 12, 25%)
8 from 22 (36.4%) overall.

Appy Mids
$36,000 in stud fees ($12,000 average)
3 yearlings
No freaks or stakes. (I blame my mares; it’s not a division I’ve ever been particularly strong in.)

Appy Routers
$139,000 in stud fees ($13,900 average)
10 yearlings
Freaks: None
Stakes: Casual Night (1 from 4, 25%).
1 from 10 (10%) overall.

The sprinter numbers are great. I would’ve preferred a freak or two obviously, but I won the SC Appy Dash this year with a stakes-galloping yearling. He may have improved to freak as a 2yo; he was a late bloomer yearling but hasn’t been galloped since. Five of the eight stakes yearlings this year are late bloomers, so there may well be another 2yo SC winner among them.

The mid numbers are poor, but so are my mares. Two are allowances, two are late bloomers (obviously one is both), and off a $12,000 stud fee and with $12,500 for winning a maiden (which they’ll probably do at some stage) it’s all good.

The router numbers are disappointing. I’ve had some VERY good runners in the past few years, including two colts who have retired to stud but look like duds (having produced the bulk of the foals in my two disappointing crops the past two years).


I'll only post the Appy stats, because the other breeds are largely forgettable. Pacers were awesome (it's a shame I galloped them first; I could've used a pick-me-up by the time I'd gone through everything else), one of my three Arabians galloped stakes (the first Arabian foals I've bred in a LONG time, though I rate my mares highly and expected even more than one stakes from three), and I got a stakes/late bloomer QH which might turn out well. Otherwise I'm crossing my fingers from some improvers.

Out of 24 Mixers bred...
4 stakes, all progressive, all filles...

10 Allowanes

- 1 QH by Gra Go Deo

7 productive

No 2 year old improvers, but out of my 27 (small barn!) 3yo and up I had...
5 jump from Allowance to Stakes

- 2 Paints (inc 1 HB) by Gray Patches & Inspired Jet Flash

All paints though some were by Quarter Horses

Stakes 8 (24.2%) (Sires: Blast off Dasher, Colored Spotlights, Flight Romance, Heza Dasha Fire, Inspired Jet Flash, Painted Turnpike, San Patricio, Unbroken Circle)
Allowance 13 (39.4%)
Productive 7 (21.2%)
Solid 2 (6%)
Claimer 2 (6%)

Total = 33

No freaks, but none of the stakes are peak so I am hoping some will get there. Also my stakes/allowance numbers are back where they were year 53 after a 2 year dip.

Also had 3 3yos improve from allowance to stakes (sires: Let You Shine, Starry Sky Spirit, Stealin Easy Cash)
Turf Miler stud
Red Ferns

Paint Sprinter studs
Colored Spotlights
Gray Patches

The only mixers I have are QH but I had a good year breeding. I had 3 stakes (8%' 1 DM and 2 DS) and 10 allowance (26%) out of 38 foals, which I'm definitely content with. By far my best QH crop to date and my first ever stakes QH DM which should be fun. He's really well bred to so I have high hopes.

It was also my first year standing a stallion, EC Steal The Show. He wasn't ever expected to be a superstar, however, I feel pretty good about where his stats ended up considering he saw some pretty sad mares this year (including a few DR/DM which did him no favors). He had 12 (27.3%) allowance gallopers in his first crop and I know for a fact that the majority of those are late bloomers. There's a good chance that a couple will jump to stakes which would be really awesome. He will see a few nicer mares this year so he will continue to be a fun experiment.
