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.

Irish stakes winner Twirl supplemented to #KeeNov
Twirl, a stakes-winning daughter of leading sire Galileo and a full sister to Irish and French highweight Misty For Me, dam of multiple Group 1 winners Roly Poly and U S Navy Flag, has been supplemented to Keeneland’s 2017 November Breeding Stock Sale, which begins Nov. 7.

Consigned by Hill ‘n’ Dale Sales Agency, agent, Twirl will be offered in foal to Curlin.

“Twirl represents a unique opportunity to purchase a stakes-winning, graded-quality mare by the world’s leading sire, Galileo, from arguably the most prolific current pedigree in the world,” Hill ‘n’ Dale President John G. Sikura said. “Twirl is a full sister to champion Ballydoyle and to Misty For Me, who is the dam this year of three-time Group 1 winner Roly Poly and U S Navy Flag, recent winner of the Group 1 Middle Park and Dewhurst Stakes. Twirl produced a beautiful filly by Tapit in 2017 and is foal to leading sire Curlin. I don’t think there will be another mare presented to auction anywhere with this much quality and current relevance in Group 1 racing. She is a jewel.”

Twirl displayed her durability during four seasons of racing in Ireland, England and the U.S., winning the Irish Stallion Farms E.B.F. Hurry Harriet Stakes at Gowran Park and placing second in the Group 3 Lodge Park Stud E.B.F. Park Express at the Curragh and Group 3 Tattersalls Musidora at York.

Out of the Storm Cat mare Butterfly Cove, a half-sister to European champion juvenile Fasliyev, Twirl comes from an active family represented by recent multiple Group 1 winners Roly Poly and U S Navy Flag. She is a full sister to their dam, Misty For Me, a highweight and Group 1 winner in Ireland and France who also finished third in the 2011 Emirates Airline Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf at Churchill Downs.

They chose to breed this mare to Curlin?
That just seems like...an odd choice? :? Does he 'nick' AAA+ with her or something?
Have we seen any Curlin foals out of Galileo mares yet, so we have an idea how His Golden Dirt Burlyness matches with a Lady Grass Goddess? :P
