Keeneland January.

Our sales agency sold 6 of 7 lots for $436,000 to complete a successful sales season.  The sale topping yearling on the first day was an Ontario bred Chesnut Colt by DISTORTED HUMOR out of ENDLESS JOURNEY by A. P. INDY who brought $300,000 from Regis Farm of King City ,Ontario.  The handsome colt was sold on behalf of his breeder Christine Hayden of Lucan Ontario. Other highlights included GRAND ADVENTURE (Multiple Stakes winner)  selling as a stallion prospect to South America, and NASHINDA a Graded Stakes winning full sister to ARCHERS BAY selling in foal to KITTEN'S JOY.

Thank you to all the visitors to the barn and best of luck to the new owners with your investments.

Homebred news.

It will be a busy spring with foaling and the follow up breeding season soon to begin here at Mapleshade Farm.  We have 9 mares expecting this year.  Our first mare MEHNDI is now due and is looking like she would like to have had the foal by now.  She is a maiden foaling mare by PULPIT and is carrying to U.S. RANGER.  She will be bred back to INTO MISCHIEF.

Our race filly CAIRDEAS (SILVER DEPUTY) has been retired to the broodmare band and will start her next career by visiting REGAL RANSOM (DISTORTED HUMOR) at Darley in Kentucky.

A full list of the expected foalings and 2013 bookings will be posted here shortly.

Happy foalings and best of luck to all horse breeders in 2013.
