She's a pretty mare with a decent pedigree (Pure Prize out of a Lemon Drop mare), so I'm surprised that she hasn't been kept or sold as a broodmare. I wonder if she has a condition that precludes her from breeding?

He raced from 2007 to 2014, many in stakes company, and ran against several generations of familiar names. He was 2nd in his debut to Mad Flatter and ran against horses like Simmard, Macho Again, Rahy's Attorney, Get Stormy, Jeranimo, and was even 2nd to Wise Dan in the Presque Isle Mile :)

Jimmy Simms is a half-brother to Well Monied :)

Jimmy' is a really good-looking horse. I hope he has retired sound enough to go on to a new career, because IMHO he would look stunning in a dressage saddle. ;)

How about your very own flashy, floaty Bernardini baby?

Monopolize ('11 Bernardini x Jaramar Rain) is available via New Vocations: http://www.newvocations.org/horseprofiles/monopolize/

This guy was a $500k 2-year-old purchase and raced for Repole and Pletcher. He only made 4 starts, his last in March 2014. He was retired with a suspensory injury, and has been rehabbed fully to starting under saddle work.

Monopolize is a half-brother to Imperial Council, who was 2nd in the '09 Gotham and Peter Pan.

Shotgun City (Mr. Greeley x Shine Again) is available via New Vocations: http://www.newvocations.org/horseprofiles/shotgun-city/

This guy ran mostly in claiming races and retired with a decent record of 12-5-1-2, all in the NY area. He was claimed from the Ramseys in his final start but never ran for his new connections and was retired, so must have had some sort of issue. They say he's sound though, and quite the character--the barn class clown.

His dam, Shine Again, was a multiple Grade 1 winner, MD-bred Champion Older Female ('01), and MD-bred Horse of the Year ('03). She won the G1 Ballerina twice and lost by a nose in her third try. She placed in multiple graded stakes, and in 34 careers starts (18 in graded stakes) she was only off the board 3 times. Her half sister, Shiny Band, was also a G2 winner.

It's nice, it's SUPER to see a successful comeback from a sesamoid injury! All the best for your second career, pretty girl!

Buckingham Gate (Galileo x Nell Gwyn by Danehill) is available via Second Stride: http://www.secondstride.org/buckinghamgate.htm

This 6-yr-old gelding was bred in Ireland and is out of a full sister to Rock of Gibraltar, and his third dam is a half sister to Riverman. He's got quite the royal pedigree, but he wasn't very fast--he retired a maiden after 24 starts in Ireland, NJ, and FL.
