Not that it was me doing the sitting up but chestnut colt arrived this evening for us away at stud, by Sir Percy, further details sketchy so far. Other mare due April if not sold before.

Elite racing Club have their first foal on the ground in 2016

He is a colt (POUR MOI x SISTINE) and a full brother to TINGLE a filly in training with AP O'Brien.  This filly made 300K Guineas at the sales (the most expensive animal produced by the sire at the time)

The dam is closely related to the dam of CAMELOT hence the cross.....

He is described as 'A fine big foal with good bone'

Good luck with yours everyone!

I tried to put a photo of the colt foal and dam but it seems like the site moderators don't like it.

For those interested said animal is on the RP Bloodstock websites foal gallery.

Foaling season off to a decent start so far. Very nice colts by Swiss Spirit and Aussie Rules (although Aussie might lack a bit of momentum now his poor dad has gone?).

Elites Mare STARS ABOVE ME has produced colt foal by MAGICIAN who is described as 'Athletic with plenty of scope'.

How nice it would be to enter this topic!
I'm currently at 11mths 28 days
                         11mths 19 days
                         11mths  5 days and I'm shortly to enter into a situation where all my mares are overdue at the same time.

Tedious to say the least. Hopefully everyone else is getting the job done.

And there was me thinking I'd seen pictures of a colt foal of yours PM that was so fabulous it had appeared on a certain stallions latest advert!

2 Colts so far.  One by Malinas for the NJ project that is Lily Lenor.   Also yesterday had a colt by Delegator out of Run Fat Lass Run.   Both good size colts and both mums and foals doing well.  Pics of both foals are on twitter as i  struggle to upload them on here.  I  will try at a later date tho

What have I told you before Posh?
Thinking, it's dangerous and not meant for the likes of us!

Perhaps the word remaining was missing from the previous post after all though!

But lo, as soon as a moan is partaken of, we get a little action and 11 months and 5 days can be removed from the list above after foaling a filly at 9pm last night.

Well done Koo for your colts. I know that as you race plenty the sex isn't perhaps as important to you but I am pleased they are going on well.

Anotheer lovely big colt.  Picture posted on twitter, massive white face and legs.  For the mare first on the list to be passed on, she isnt half making it hard by producing a decent foal.

Well done Koo, thought I was the only one with a 100% colts so far! PotM don't feel too bad about that little sin of omission that Father Paddy drew attention too. We understand the need for modesty and discretion in such things and if it makes you feel better I've one of that type of colt too and I'm saying no more on the subject! Happy Easter everybody.

Well lads dont be shy ,lets know how it all ended for ye..
Report potentialmillionaire April 11, 2016 1:43 PM BST
It hasn't workie!

I've had a 12month 13 day foal and I was convinced I'd get a little chesnut filly that had seen growth issues stopping her having cooked properly.
So at least a big bay colt was potentially worth waiting for!

Now though I'm at 11 months 7 days
                               11 months 14 days
                                12 months 8 days.

Remains, tedious.

Sorry to hear that potential, was hoping ye all had early foals , obviously not .

Had a Helmet colt this week, it's unfortunate the foal sales aren't held in early April!

Elite Racing Club have another foal on the ground.

This is a bay filly by RAVENS PASS ex NEW FFOREST(OASIS DREAM).

NEW FFOREST was a winning daughter of Elites Foundation mare FFESTINIOG, dam of numerous winners including the group winners EISTEDDFOD, BOSTON LODGE, BORDER PATROL and the current high class handicapper MAN OF HARLECH.

This filly is her first foal, and as one of only 2 daughters of FFESTINIOG, she's a most welcome addition to the club

Elite have another foal on the ground.

She is a filly by IFFRAAJ ex MARLINKA, making her a full sister to the winning sprinter JUDICIAL and half sister to the exciting 3 yo MARSHA.

MARLINKA is a listed winning daughter of BARALINKA (herself a winning half sister to SOVIET SONG and SISTER ACT (DAM of G1 winner RIBBONS))

She has a CAPE CROSS yearling and visits DARK ANGEL this year.

Well I've finally finished Workrider, and colour is good, all bay and sex ratio is tip top too.
However, we are hurtling towards May and nothing is yet in foal and I am actually going to have to leave two thirds of them empty as we have run out of time.

I don't know exactly who it is that giveth with one hand and taketh with the other, I just know that in the bloodstock game they work overtime!

Maybe its for the best potentialmillionaire , the rest might do them the world of good .Nothing as bad as a late covering imo ,leaves you open to all sorts ,hopefully they'll all be as horney as hell come next Feb . Rest up yourself and enjoy the rewards of your labour.

365 days and still waiting, cue mini chesnut least before June.

Proxy, if a tonic is required' I had two 379 day pregnancies this time, both of which resulted in big bay colts.
One might have suffered for the duration, it's hard to tell as yet, but the other one certainly didn't.

Good luck, but I'm sorry about the timing!

Oh well at least she's bay, and bigger than average for the mare (375 days)
