OFFERING FOR 2009
ARRRRR Stables is pleased to offer for partial syndication a beautiful filly who is a Registered New York Bred Racehorse, making her eligible for all of the benefits and bonuses that this provides. She is a yearling, being born in 2008. As you can see from these photos, she is a wonderfully proportioned racehorse, having nice scope to her and being well-muscled in the shoulders and hind end.
The filly’s father (sire) is the young and successful stallion, Hook and Ladder. He is the current #1 New York Second Crop Sire. This means that of all the NY stallions that had offspring racing for the first time in 2007, Hook and Ladder’s offspring earned the most money. After his first year as a stallion, he was also the #1 New York First Crop Sire. This is an excellent start for a stallion.
Hook and Ladder was also a very successful racehorse, earning nine Beyer Speed Figures of 100 or higher, including a Beyer of 111 in the Mr. Prospector Handicap. Importantly, he ran a Beyer of 110 as a 2 year old! That is a figure virtually unheard of for 2 year old racehorses. We are hoping this precocity has been passed on to his daughter, our 2009 Offering.
As a comparison, in 2009, the Kentucky Derby was won by Mine That Bird with a Beyer of 105, the Preakness Stakes was won by Rachel Alexandra with a Beyer of 108, and the Belmont Stakes was won by Summer Bird with a Beyer of 100.
The mother (dam) of our Offering is Filly of the Jag, a daughter of the good sire Gilded Time. Gilded Time won an Eclipse Award for Champion 2 Year Old Male in 1992, winning the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Stakes that year. He won 4 out of 5 lifetime races with a career high Beyer of 107. He is another horse that had tremendous precocity and he passes that precocity on to his offspring, averaging 15 different 2 year old winners every year since 2000.
The mother of our Offering, Filly of the Jag, is also a sister to Champion Colorful Vices, mentioned on this website under Notable Horses.
We at ARRRRR Stables think our 2009 Offering is well bred and is an excellent physical specimen, having the genetic potential to be precocious. With this in mind, we plan on beginning her training in Oct/Nov of 2009. This will give her ample time to develop and, if all goes well, race as a 2 year old in NY, hopefully at Saratoga Racetrack in 2010.
