That's so.... weird. It's not like she's some no-name mare with a blank page covered by a backyard sire, either. I'd really, really like to know the back story on that cover if someone happens to get over there.

Does someone even bid on her? You get a foal you have to race in Argentina and then you lose the opportunity to breed her next year if you want her to stay in the US.

Perhaps an opportunity for someone building their way up in the breeding game but that has a more limited budget.

I'll take Hip #322 just because his dam Saxet Heights was an old favorite of mine.

Ugh, you'd lose a year of breeding on her with her dropping that July '18 foal and couldn't breed her until 2019 - unless you breed her on southern time. What would you do with the foal anyway? Send it south to a sale or race it there? Race it at 3 or 4 in the US and hope for the best?

I'm SO intrigued by this. :lol:

Worth the wait, for someone who might not otherwise have the opportunity to get their hands on a mare like that, if she gets snubbed by the big guns.
I'd hope the foal is a filly first and foremost. Maybe I'd send her to race in Argentina or South Africa, or maybe I don't race her at all. Now, I've hopefully got two nice mares in the barn to keep building my program. ;)

I guess they could just abort the foal. Which might be worth it if they wanted to keep the mare in the US.

I can't imagine someone aborting an Into Mischief foal--even one with an unfortunate birth date.
