just got my sale catalogue for the mixed sale, wow is all i can say
gonna be some high priced horses go through this sale. even have red rocks selling as a stallion prospect.
two mares who run sunday in the $125k rood and riddle stakes are being sold, lemonnette and black mamba.
ginger punch in foal to bernardini, whats she bring? 7 maybe 8 million? and this is the fanciest catalogue ive
ever seen, has pictures on each pedigree page of the horses being sold or thier sire etc..
I don't think she's bringing $7 - $8 million in this environment. I read that they are trying to sell Red Rocks prior to the sale as a stallion prospect, but they must not be finding any takers. He's going in the BC Turf again for Meehan.

That Bettor than Honor was a phony price. Southern Equine who bought her owned 1/2 already, so they were just paying themselves.... If you think you can read anything into 90% of the "sale" prices you do not understand how the game is played. This sale will be a bloodbath.
Earlier this year, at Keeneland, Azeri, in foal to Giants Causeway went for practically nothing. As I recall, it was under a million, something like 8 or 900,000. There is value at the sales this year if you have the money. I would guess Ginger Punch will be lucky to bring over a million in this economy.
Edit: You know what; I'm an idiot. I roused my own curiousity and went back to check. It was a yearling out of Azeri that sold for 800,000. Azeri, in foal to Ghostzapper was R.N.A. 'ed from the Jan sale; not reaching her reserve price of 4,400,000. I guess I picked a bad day to quite sniffing glue.
I couldn't believe Azeri sold for that low so I looked it up, but couldn't find any sale. Not saying you're wrong at all because I knew she had foaling issues, but all I could find was that the Paulson family turned down a bid of over $4 mil in Jan. Maybe she sold sometime after that, but I couldn't find when she did sell.
She was barren in 2006 after being bred to Storm Cat (who was suspect with his fertility issues), she has been in foal ever since and has delivered healthy foals.
????????? Have never, ever read anything that she has trouble carrying foals to birth . . . . ????????
