At the current Keeneland November breeding stock sale, Three Chimneys Farm’s Will Take Charge leads sires with first foals of 2016 going under the hammer, with 18 sold for $2,312,000 through Nov. 15.
Less than two weeks after his son Arrogate reeled in champion California Chrome to capture the Nov. 5 Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I), Unbridled's Song has top billing once more as the leading sire by gross through Book 4 at Keeneland November.
Champion Will Take Charge's fee held steady at $30,000
Three Chimneys reported that the first reported foal for champion Will Take Charge was born at Siena Farm near Paris, Ky., on Jan. 13.
Discreetness prevailed in a pulsating, three-horse finish in the $250,000 Springboard Mile for 2-year-olds Dec. 13, bringing down the curtain on Remington Park's Thoroughbred season.
For the third year in a row, Gainesway's Tapit leads all North American sires by Comparable Index (CI) of mares bred.
Stonestreet buys $320,000 Emerald Gal and a $260,000 Curlin colt at Keeneland November's fifth session, which posted declines even as the 12-day auction's overall figures remained ahead of last year's sale.
The son of Curlin will stand at Three Chimneys Farm.
The last two winners of the Pennsylvania Derby (gr. II) have run well in the Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I); the connections of Frosted would love to see that trend continue.
In the $300,000 Count Fleet Sprint Handicap (gr. III) at Oaklawn Park April 9, Alsvid recovered from a stumble at the start to catch Ivan Fallunovalot in the stretch and win by three-quarters of a length.
Daniel Dougherty's Ride On Curlin returned to the races in winning fashion Jan. 15, taking a six-furlong allowance optional claimer at Oaklawn Park by a head in his season debut.
All out in the drive, Bayerd reached the wire a head in front of Shotgun Kowboy in a terrific renewal of the $255,000 Remington Springboard Mile in the mud Dec. 14 on closing night of the 2014 Remington Park meet.
After splitting two previous juvenile stakes earlier in the meet, Bayerd and Shotgun Kowboy square off in the rubber match, the $250,000 Remington Springboard Mile on closing night Dec. 14 at Remington Park.
