It's interesting that Justify's half-brother is by Will Take Charge, because with his hunky size, red coat and big white blaze, IMHO Justify looks a WTC son, and not at all like the usual Scat Daddy. :P ;)

He has a pretty awesome looking blaze. :)

As for Stage Magic, she didn't foal until April 8th last year, so she is probably due soon. She definitely looks pregnant in those pics from February at the link.

Justify definitely takes after his dam’s coloring. Her WTC yearling sure is a looker!

I just love the look on her face. She looks great.

Harris Farms announces passing of stakes winner Velvet Mesquite
Velvet Mesquite, a multiple stakes winner for Harris Farms, was euthanized on Thursday after complications of colic surgery, the farm announced on Saturday.

Velvet Mesquite underwent surgery for colic, but suffered a severe knee injury when she tried to rise after the operation.

"She will be sadly missed," the farm's statement said.

Velvet Mesquite, 8, won 6 of 22 starts and earned $461,946. She won two stakes at Santa Anita and was second in the Grade 3 Sen. Ken Maddy Stakes in 2015.

Velvet Mesquite delivered a foal by California Chrome in March and had been bred back to Clubhouse Ride. The farm said the California Chrome foal is being raised by a nurse mare.

How sad. :(
I think Harris Farms has had more than their fair share of misfortune in the last few years. They lost the venerable Unusual Heat in 2017, although he was an aged stallion, but also the younger Thorn Song (2014), Heatseeker (2016) and Lucky Pulpit (Dec. 30, 2017).

Felt this needed an airing on Epsom-eve. Balanchine beating Wind In Her Hair in the ‘94 Oaks. The former went on the beat the boys at the Curragh & the latter to become a legendary broodmare in Japan... Hope Godolphin don’t mind me borrowing this special pic from their website!

(note: Wind In Her Hair, right, is the dam of Deep Impact (JPN) and just turned 27 - she is pensioned at Northern Horse Park and can be frequently seen in the Twitter feed of @nabecci)

Thanks for sharing! I remember reading about the race in my copy of Bloodhorse. The 11 yr old me loved the name Wind in Her Hair. :lol:

Found out this morning Champion #UNTAPABLE will be retuning home with 2 #FRANKEL colts (1 at foot, 1 in utero). Hopefully 1 of the 2 will be half the racehorse #CRACKSMAN is. @EpsomRacecourse @JohnGosden1 @FrankieDettori

Excited to here this. :)

I was so happy that they sent her to be bred to Frankel.

Big fan of both of them, so I am hoping they produce something special.

This is more of a broodmare question (I already checked Pedigree Query & there's nothing) - is there a way to find out if the 1991 mare Melrose Wine (Desert Wine x Melrose Nugget) was ever bred to Devil's Bag & produced a bay colt?

PQ shows she was bred to Devil His Due but that's not the foal I'm looking for. 8-)

You can go to Equineline and pull a mare produce record for $1.

Omgosh thank you Flanders! That was him. : )))) I wasn't sure if he was ever registered (I knew he never raced, if you'd seen him you'd know why, he was a quintessential Baby Huey but became a wonderful lesson horse :mrgreen: ).

You can also just use either of Equineline's free services, the 5 cross search, and type in a year and the dam's name. Or use their Auction results Search by putting a dam name in and setting the horse type and years to all.

You actually can see the progeny of any horse who is in pedigreequery.com. I couldn't do this earlier when your question first appears (work and family took my time), but here is a link to the pedigree page for Melrose Wine. If you click "Reports" and select "Progeny" from the drop-down menu, you can see that the bay colt, Wild Wine, born 1997, by Devil's Bag, appears to have been her first foal (or first named foal) -- http://www.pedigreequery.com/melrose+wine
I added him to pedigreequery after i looked him up.
