Well.. in the thoroughbred horse business... the largest yearling sale in the world starts Sunday. The 'select' yearlings should already be on the sales ground, but I won't be able to get over there until Saturday. Frustrating? YES. But it's not a place for my 4yo I am working on sorting through the pictures I still have on my computers. I still have pictures from last year's sale on my desktop - pics that have never been touched!!! AHHH! I know! I'm not working for the same website that I worked for last year But it's more laid back for me this year - get what I can get basically, but during the first two days of the sale I need to be inside getting pics of all the big horses that go through in case the website I am working for can use the pics in sales ads, etc. But mostly I do it because well...I love to do it over 200 horses represent the first book this year, some of the nicest pedigrees you could ask for. Should be interesting....but the economy really has hurt the sales. Anyway, just because I like to ramble, I thought I'd share some pics from last years top of the class yearlings from the first catalog. BTW, it's not always easy to get pics at the sale....you really have to get a feel for it. Hall of fame trainer inspects a yearling... My VERY favorite filly out of the entire sale was the next one. ARIENZA Her sire is Ghostzapper, and her dam is Azeri <I LOVE AZERI>. AZERI was horse of the year in 2003 and the horse that got me back into racing. Ghostzapper was Horse of the Year in 2004. In a good economy...she would have doubled her price... My second favorite filly from the sale out of a champion mare named Spain, she sold for $300,000. Another favorite.. Anyone don't mean to bore anyone, I just thought I'd share. As soon as I can share pics from the sale I will post them here.
