    Palomino Filly in Keeneland Sale

    Splash of Vanilla, a filly by Ballado Chieftan, probably will attract plenty of attention at the upcoming Keeneland January horses of all ages sale in Lexington because of her golden color. She is registered as a palomino.

    It will be the first time Keeneland has offered a palomino Thoroughbred in Director of Sales Geoffrey Russell’s memory.

    “I was surprised,” Russell said. “I didn’t know that The Jockey Club registered Thoroughbreds as palominos, but they obviously do. It will add a little bit of an extra twist to the sale like it does when we sell white horses.”

    Produced by the Guaranteed Gold mare Maid of Gold TB, who is also registered with The Jockey Club as a palomino, Splash of Vanilla is from the family of stakes winner Knight’s Turn. Her consignor is Triple B Stables. The filly was bred in Minnesota by Thomas Bentley and Kevin E. Lay.

    Splash of Vanilla, who will be 2-years-old when she is offered next year at Keeneland, is one of 31 horses in the foal crop of 2007 that is registered as a palomino, according to The Jockey Club.
    Will be interesting to see what she goes for ...

    You gotta love the line at the end of her page... "racing or broodmare prospect". At least they have a sense of humour.

    I saw a palomino TB galloping on the track one day at Penn National about ten years ago. I didn't even know there was such a thing until I saw it for myself. Not sure if the horse ever ran or not.

    I don't think this filly is connected with Norsire Farm, but they breed TBs for color (rather than speed).

    justalittlex - thanks! We try very hard to produce correct athletes that just happen to be interesting colours with interesting markings ...

    The Maid of Gold dam actually comes from the Trinity Breeders breeding program - the former owners of Guaranteed Gold ...

    That's actually just the way they do it with females age 2 and over unless they are already pregnant or proven not to be able to be pregnant (spayed, etc) or are not able to be raced.

    If they're not able to be raced, it'll read simply: broodmare prospect. If they're being sold as in-foal broodmares, it'll read: Mated to xx (his pedigree) on y date. Believed to be pregnant. If she hasn't been bred, it'll read: Not mated. If she hasn't checked in foal, it'll read Mated to XX (his pedigree), last service y date. Believed to be not pregnant.

    I'm aware of that. It does make one chuckle though to see those words connected to a horse that is not really bred to be a racehorse, the bottom side is several generations of colour breeding.
    The damsire never raced and has never sired a foal that left a starting gate.
    The damsire's sire in turn also never sired a horse that raced.
    The 2nd damsire had a whopping 9 starters in his whole career as a sire (20 odd years?).
    You have to go back to the 4th dam to find any tenuous connection to black type.

    The sire himself is a genuine race sire, but in his, albeit young, career he doesn't have figures that would evoke much interest among buyers. The couple of offspring that he has had that went through sales averaged $1500.

    Let's face it, if this filly was chestnut, bay, brown, grey etc, she would have little value as either a racehorse or racing broodmare prospect, and would unlikely be run through the ring at Keeneland. It's all about the colour of the coat.

    I don't think anyone mentioned this filly being connected with Norsire Farm at all and we DON'T breed TBs for "just" color.

    Zillionair at the moment is 15th in the nation for leading hunter sires and not all the points are in yet for the year.
    http://www.usef.org/_IFrames/pointsA...HunterBreeding

    Gold Tycoon is 6th in the nation for 2 year olds hunter breeding.
    http://www.usef.org/_IFrames/pointsA...0&section=1902

    Gold Tycoon is 1st in Zone 8 for the year
    http://www.usef.org/_IFrames/pointsA...8&section=1902

    Gold Tycoon is also 12th in Zone 2.

    I'm listed as 13th in the nation as a breeder.

    But to answer the question of racing, we do have one client who bred her mare twice to Zillionair and is planning on racing her two...one is a colt and one is filly. There is also one that will be starting in Jan. 2009 that I bred and sold...can't wait to see how he does.

    Here are a few photos of Gifted Gold the filly in KY.

    It will be interesting to see how this filly does at Keenland.

    I will let you know how the one that is staring in Jan. 2009 does once he starts racing.

    Happy Holidays to everyone!!!

    There is currently a palomino in training here at Mountaineer but I have not been impressed with him as a racehorse. When I have seen him gallop he definitely goes like a "log wagon".... but more power to his connections for trying to get an actual WIN/race record with one of these pally TBs.

    It will be interesting to see what the filly brings at Keeneland.

    Jessi P.... The pally at Mountaineer has just been given the go ahead from the vet that his joints are finally closed and they have just started to condition him lightly. He's a late baby (end of May) but is a 16.2 (and still growing!) 2 year old so they're taking it slowly with him until he grows into his body a bit. They just started him on the track mid/end November, in all the ice and crap that Mountaineer gets, so hopefully he'll look a bit less like a "log wagon" and more like a racehorse when the conditions are better and he has some muscle on him. They're thrilled with his work ethic and hope he has some speed behind the good attitude. I'm just pleased that they're taking the time and care starting this 'large' kid..... who knew he'd end up so friggin big, his dam is 15.3?
    It's fun watching him out there though.

    Glad to see you on this thread! I sure didn't mean to suggest that you breed "just" for color - only that speed isn't your primary concern. Conformation, soundness, and athletic ability are not compromised by good breeding for color, and your breeding program testifies to that.

    grits Thank you so much for the lovely comments! Yes we don't primarily breed for the race track...more for an all around sporthorses with excellent conformation, soundness, athletic ability, heart of gold temperment, and a pretty head doesn't hurt with the extra bonce of color for the sweet icing on the cake!!!

    Specialeffects seems you know this colt/gelding very well...does IT have a name? I think it would be very cool for a palomino to "win" a race on the track someday and maybe with 4 currently at it..one of the 4 will make it soon!!! I know the two in KY are slated to run and so is the one I bred so 3 from my program that I currently know about.

    No clue, I dont believe he has run yet. I see him once or twice a week on the track.

    Edited to add that I just now read your post SE and it makes sense - being a young horse and just getting legged up. What is his breeding, and who is training him?

    SE regarding the winter conditions at Mnr.... I have a 2 yo W Va bred I would just LOVE to keep in training to try to run early as a 3 yo, but we have just made the decision (yesterday) to lay him up and bring him back in late Feb/early March because with the track conditions it's impossible to get any sort of consistent training into them. Some mornings, usually after the jocks have refused to ride the night before, the track is closed for training while they work the track to see if they can get it decent for that night's racing. All in all, its a tough time of the year to be training young horses.

    Jessi P.... yeah I had a long talk with one of his owners last night - almost 3 hours is long isn't it - and they have decided to send some of the kiddies down to Florida so they don't miss training time over the next 2 or 3 months. The guy I was talking to, who doubles as his trainer as well, said that he'd just be sick if any of them got injured because they hit a lump if ice incorrectly and ended up being laid up for weeks or months because of it. So one gelding, the pally and two yearling fillies are going to be living the life I'd like right around now! As I said, I adore these guys and the fabulous care and consideration they give to the well being of their horses. Bad part though, is I'm pretty much not going to be able to visit for the day or weekends. Scooting back and forth between ON and PA and/or WV is one thing but this would be kind of pushing it!

    The pally is aka Beyond Blonde - Guaranteed Gold x Special Lady. His trainer is Jim Farris and he's owned by TJ Squared Stables. He was not bred for racing but the trainer liked his type and was also very impressed by what he saw in both the sire and dam, so he was willing to take a chance on him. I just hope he rewards their time and their faith in him, with a respectable effort. That what we all wish... isn't it?

    On another TB color note, a maximal sabeeeeeno (i.e pure white) just won the G2 Japanese Oaks.
