Festivus 2.0

Post by Carole Hanson » 2 months ago

Festivus 2.0 is coming up, anyone have things in their barn that they are hoping will improve? Or is there anything that you're dreading will have a decrease in ability?

Here's some of mine that I hope improve:
2yos:
TS-Bathed in the Storm-Currently: Allowance/Progressive
TR-Destino-Currently: Stakes/Progressive
DR-Dreaming of Royalty-Currently: Stakes/Late Bloomer
TR-Hilary Hahn-Currently: Allowance/Progressive
DR-Mr. Blank-Currently: Allowance/Late Bloomer
TR-Phenomenal Queen-Currently: Stakes/Late Bloomer
DR-Rain in the Desert-Currently: Stakes/Late Bloomer
TR-Stars Dance At Night-Currently: Allowance/Late Bloomer

3yos:
TS-Sinsey-Currently: Allowance/Late Bloomer
DR-Timeframe-Currently: Stakes/Progressive

There's some yearlings too but I rarely see them improve this time of year so I'm not holding my breath.

Looking forwards to the Festivus :3
And your horses seems so nice, Carole :)

I don't dare to hope for improvements for my horses ^^''
I would have loved if some of my stakes horses, who became Allowance last year, will be bumped back up to stakes again. But I don't even know if that is possible ^^''

I am very ready for this girl to bloom https://www.simhorseracing.com/horse.ph ... ID=1246795
Wouldn't complain if this one did too https://www.simhorseracing.com/horse.ph ... ID=1240200

both allowance bloomers. Of course, anything that gets a little better is always nice! But I don't imagine I have any huge leaps due that will make a major difference in ability/earnings for the horse, but I feel like the two above could do some nice things with just a smidge more gas in the tank.

I really just want a bloom out of Flaxen before she goes to the Steward at the end of the year. She’s already a multiple G1 winner including a Steward’s Cup as a stakes and I think if she did bloom to freak she could be considered a GOAT of AWS.
yeah

I guess I’m rooting for Into The Unknown to go from Progressive to Peak.

I don’t have any exciting young horses. Maybe something will jump up but I’m not holding my breath. That’s okay though cause I’m having a year off next season because my life is insane 🙄
