2020 Fee Announced for Mobile Bay

Mobile Bay_9-12-2015-F
Mobile Bay with jockey Edgar Prado aboard wins the 36th running of the Grade II $400,000 Super Derby at Louisiana Downs. Hodges Photography / Lou Hodges, Jr.

 

Two-time Accredited Louisiana Bred Horse of the Year, Mobile Bay, who stood his first season at stud for a complimentary fee to approved mares at Carrol Castille’s Whispering Oaks Thoroughbred Farm will remain at Castille’s Carencro breeding facilty for the 2020 breeding season for a fee of $2,500 live foal stands and nurses.

Mobile Bay, a 2012 dark bay or brown son of Lone Star Special out of Tranquility Bay,  ran from ages three to six, hitting the board in 21 of 29 lifetime starts. He won eleven stakes, often showing speed in route races of 1 1/16 to 1 1/8 miles, including the G2 Super Derby, open company stakes such as the Sunland Park Handicap, the Maxxam Gold Cup and the Zia Park Derby, as well Louisiana Bred Stakes including the Louisiana Champions Day Classic at the Fair Grounds twice.  He placed in another five stakes including the G3 Oklahoma Derby.  His Lifetime earnings of $1,246,440 rank him 4th among all-time Leading Accredited Louisiana Bred Runners. A multiple Accredited Louisiana Bred Champion, Mobile Bay was named 2015 3YO Colt or Gelding and Horse of the Year, 2016 Older Male and Horse of the Year, and 2017 Older Male. Mobile Bay is owned by Irwin Olian’s Tigertail Ranch and was trained for his entire career by popular local favorite Victor Arceneaux.

“He is a gorgeous, imposing individual standing 17 hands, weighing 1300 pounds, with textbook conformation.” says Olian.  “Mobile Bay has the capacity to hold his own physically against any stallion in the country. His sire Lone Star Special has the rare quality of moving up his mares. I expect Mobile Bay will move up his mares significantly as well. Both represent the best of the Unbridled sire line and I believe will serve to establish a new branch of that line.”

Owner Irwin Olian offered free breeding in 2019 to to attract a large book of mares to enable Mobile Bay to compete as a sire at the national level, and to show his appreciation for the thrills and excitement that Mobile Bay has given him and the horse’s many fans in Louisiana and elsewhere, as well as to give something back to breeders in the Louisiana breeding program in gratitude for all the benefits.

Mobile Bay was very well received in his first year at stud, covering some 30 quality mares. His first crop will arrive in 2020.

Carrol Castille’s Whispering Oaks Co-owns G1 La Troienne winner She’s A Julie

Bradley Thoroughbreds, Whispering Oaks Farm, Team Hanley, Madaket Stables, and Tim and Anna Cambron’s She’s A Julie had her work cut out for her in the stretch of Friday’s Grade 1 La Troienne, but was able to run down the erratically-moving Secret Spice to win by about a half-length on the wire. Ridden by Ricardo Santana for trainer Steve Asmussen and sent off at 5-1 odds, the 4-year-old daughter of Elusive Quality covered 1 1/16 miles on Churchill Downs’ fast main track in 1:43.58.

“I felt this would be the right spot for her,” Asmussen said. “I got extremely nervous with all the rain this morning, with a sloppy track. It seemed like her sloppy track run last season caused the dip. But she’s a Grade I-winning mare and deservedly so. I got concerned going into the second turn, it seemed that she had to wait for traffic a bit. But she showed her heart. She’s a monster physically, and it just shows that time helped her come together.”
