Hold the Damned Presses!

September 13, 2016

Dear Partners and Friends,

That's right we are back again! We just purchased Hip #257, a colt by Tiznow out of a mare by Pulpit. How is the breeding? Well, this colt's mother is a full sister to TAPIT! Not a misprint. TAPIT. 

No sooner did we buy this big boy than Duncan Taylor, President of Taylor Made, called to say we may have just bought the best stallion prospect in the sale. Salesmanship? Sure, a little, but the black type is all over his page.

This colt is a FIVE STAR Best of Sale rating by the folks at Werk Horse (Sid Fernando) which just happens to be the best rating you can get.

This morning, as we made final decisions on bidding, Todd Pletcher went to look at him for us and rated him an outstanding prospect.

We thought this boy would be around $500,000 or up but landed him for $370,000.  A terrific stallion prospect play!

And how appropriate is this? Waiting to congratulate us on acquiring the Malibu Moon colt was Caroline Mason, partners Keith and Twinker Mason's daughter.. Why appropriate? Because the colt is out of the mare "Bizzy Caroline." Maybe this one was meant to be!
