Louisiana Bred Chimney Rock in Todays Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint

Two-year-old Chimney Rock (Artie Schiller-What’s Your Point, by Wheaton) in todays (1-1-19) $1 million G2 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint. Bred in Louisiana by Stargazers and Clear Creek Stud, LLC, the Michael J. Maker trainee will start from Post Position 1 for owners Three Diamonds Farm.

 

Chimney Rock broke his maiden by 1 ¾ lengths going away in a $75,000 MSW at Saratoga, in his third start September 1st . Less than a week later he ran back in the $500,000 Kentucky Downs Juvenile Turf Sprint where he just  missed the victory to undefeated Cambria (3-3) by a head. Next out he was once again a close second in the $200,000 Indian Summer Stakes at Keeneland; this time to G2 placed multiple stakes winner Kimari, by a half length. Both races were 5 ½ furlongs on the turf.

 

An $18,000 purchase from the 2018 Equine Sales Company Select Yearling Sale, Chimney Rock is out of the stakes placed winning Wheaton mare, What’s Your Point ($435,095).  He is by 2005 Breeders Cup Mile winner Artie Schiller.  Artie Schiller won 6 Graded Stakes  and over $2 million in his racing career. He has consistently ranked among the leading sires in the country since his first crop started in 2010.

 

Chimney Rock will be competing at Morning Line odds of 10-1.

Louisiana bred Khozan Colt Tops Equine Sales Co. Open Yearling and Mixed Sale

A yearling colt sired by Florida-based Khozan  was purchased by Norman Stables for $22,000 to top the Oct. 27 Equine Sales of Louisiana’s Open Yearling and Mixed Sale in Opelousas, La.

Consigned by Oakridge Farm, the colt was bred in Louisiana by Paul Pruett and is out of the Dixie Union mare Unwooed. The colt’s second dam, the Alysheba mare Designatoree, produced Voice of Destiny, a $556,723-earner whose 24 victories from ages 2 to 10 included the Berkeley Handicap and California Juvenile Stakes, both grade 3. Designatoree, a half sister to grade 1 winner Very Subtle, is also granddam of grade 3 winner Actin Good.

Supplements Bring Sunday’s Equine Sales Company Open Yearling and Mixed Sale Offering to Nearly 150 Head

A robust list of supplements to Equine Sales Company’s Open Yearling and Mixed Sale has boosted the catalog to nearly 150 horses for the auction set for Sunday, October 27. The sale will begin at 11 a.m. in the sale pavilion in Opelousas, Louisiana.

The sale will kick-off with more than 50 yearlings on offer, followed by weanlings, broodmares and horses of racing age. In addition, four stallions are cataloged including Kentucky Derby (G1) runner-up Closing Argument with nearly $25 million in progeny earnings and graded stakes winner D’Wildcat with more than $27 million in progeny earnings. Both stallions have been perennially near the top of the sire list in Louisiana. Mean Season and Run Production are also being offered.

As usual, the sale includes offspring of many of Louisiana’s top stallions, including Astrology, Gemologist, Court Vision, Star Guitar, Custom for Carlos and many others. Top national stallions represented include Fusaichi Pegasus, Goldencents and Bodemeister.

“This might be the strongest offering we’ve ever had for our open yearling and mixed sale,” said Foster Bridewell, sales director. “We had six horses go for $50,000 or more at our Select Yearling Sale last month, including a $145,000 sale-topper, so the market has been strong here, and we expect to draw buyers from around the region for this sale.”
