R Sunday Surprise (full sister to California Chrome) has been booked to visit DANZING CANDY for 2018.
This is cool. The California breeding industry needs a potentially excellent regional sire, and I hope DC develops that way. The DC to R Sunday Surprise mating introduces linebreeding to the direct female family of Unbridle's Song and Lucky Pulpit. Their dams were 3/4ths sisters. Kentucky breeders seem to have been trying a similar pattern with some mares sent to Chrome for his first crop. Will be interesting to see how it works out. Unbridled's Song was the paternal grandsire of DC's dam.

Lucky Pulpit was bred to be a good one, but an early illness left him with life-long respiratory issues. He actually was a pretty good sire in the Cal market considering his very limited opportunities. And Love The Chase has produced two winners from four named foals (to date), one of whom is Chrome. That's a good produce record for any mare. So I would think her daughter has a shot to produce something decent from this mating.

Winter, Minding and Promise To Be True all off to see Deep Impact. Coolmore mean business with that sire after the success they had with him last year. Great to see.

That's excellent news! Although I thought Winter might race another year.

They announced in November that Winter and most likely Roly Poly would retire. They also said Hydrangea and Rhododendron may stay in training but they were not 100% decided at that time.

I can't believe I missed the memo on Winter being retired. What a vote of confidence for them to send their best (and Europe's best) fillies of 2017 and 2016 to Deep Impact.

Very excited for this baby! I believe they'll be selling her in the Fall as well, if she is IF to War Front I expected nothing less than fireworks!

Gutsy, and I see why they're doing this. No inbreeding in first four generations. I hope it's successful! Mrs. Abercrombie just had her I think 91st birthday.

Tommy Town farm manager Mike Allen says grade 1 winner It Tiz Well has been retired from racing. She came out of her last work Dec. 30 with a sesamoid fracture. She arrived at Brookdale Farm yesterday and will be bred to Tapit.
