Stall Street Journal – Entry #34
Sales results at the recent Fasig-Tipton Midlantic December Mixed sale were outstanding for McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds. A weanling colt that was bred and sold by us was the sale-topping weanling, selling to Highclere, Inc. for $92,000. This Kitten’s Joy – Right On It youngster was a stand out from the very beginning. He should go on and do additional good things for his very hot sire.
HERE COMES BEN was the leading first crop sire of weanlings. His filly out of Long Way Round sold for $20,000 to Saratoga Glen Farm and his colt out of Risky Kitten sold for $18,000 to Machmer Hall. BEN is off to a strong start in the sales ring, as his youngsters seem to possess attributes appealing to the trained eye.
MORE GOOD NEWS!
McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds has entered into a venture with Sequel Stallions to stand the new, young, exciting horse….FORTY TALES! There will be a great deal of publicity in the near future regarding this exciting addition, but for now, here’s a bit of a sampling:
FORTY TALES will stand at Sequel Stallions in New York for $6,500. There are shares available for a reasonable $15,000. This allows for two seasons per year and if used, a third as a bonus.
Please call us regarding this exciting new stallion….the time is right in New York State…and he can be the next big name in town! Call us to discuss plans/questions…we’d be happy to help. This could be a Tale with a very happy ending for New York breeders!
It looks like 2014 will offer a great deal of promise for our industry…here are some of our ruminations:
TOP TEN 2014 RESOLUTIONS ----For McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds
It’s a breeders dream come true….it’s Sally’s Dream!
UTOPIA’S leading money winner was at it again on Wednesday, December 18th. She nipped a tough field at Aqueduct to win her tenth race…and her fifth of the year. In 2013 alone, she has won $315K. She is a “war horse,” which is uncommon these days …especially for a filly. UTOPIA’S progeny seem to be quite sound, and this filly was making her 21st start of the year. What a gift!
On the same card, UTOPIA’S son, Forever Utopia, finished second in the Damon Runyon Stakes for NY Bred two year olds going two turns. He has now won over $65K in his young career. McMahon Thoroughbreds had quite a day, as they were also co-breeders (Ted Taylor) and co-owners with That’s Amore Stables, J. Gardella, M. Ragosta, and G. Rabi of this exciting colt.
Hundred Acre Wood, a TEUFLESBERG four year old filly, dazzled the crowd at Aqueduct last week while taking a mile and 70 yards event by almost five lengths. Her earnings of $3,600 raised her career totals to $126K….a nice holiday gift for owner/breeder Paul Giacopelli, MD.
Congrats to all connections of these wonderful animals!
From our family to yours…Healthy and Happy Holidays…May it be a WONDERFUL 2014!
