Mating Plan 2023, presented by Spendthrift: Wasabi Ventures

As we approach the start of the 2023 breeding season, TDN staff once again sit down with top breeders to find out which stallions they chose for their mares and why. Today, we meet George Adams at Housatonic Bloodstock, who served as Director of Stallions and Breeding for Wasabi Ventures Stables.

WHY NOT TODAY (5, fauceture—Pay the Lady, by Not For Love), bred as Nashville

This chubby girl became Wasabi’s first bet winner last year when she won the All Brandy Bet at Laurel, and she also won a stipend for them after they won. get her at Monmouth. Originally a $57,000 stud, she’s a good size and well made, and we’re sending her to one of the more exciting freshman stallions this year’s crop. live Nashville. An extremely fast sprinter, he is a beautiful specimen, and the cross is a good tree. Plus, she’s a half to a stallion last year’s stock by Great Notion, from the same Gone West stallion line.

GUN SINGIN (4, gunman—Easy tap, by faucet), was bred as Map of Liam

Wasabi really upped its game at the Keeneland November Sale, buying five mares for a total of $247,000 and the most expensive one at $77,000. A mare, she is the half-sister of last summer’s TDN `Rising Star’ Disarm (gunman). We wanted to send her to a proven horse, and she got there Map of Liam, who will still have some advantage when his best crop comes to this year’s races. This interbreeding resulted in countless line crossings for some great Tartan Farm names like Fappiano, In Reality, Dr. Fager, Aspidistra and Rough n Tumble.

American Horror Movie (4, American Pharoah—Emotional, by Uncle Mo), was bred as candy ride (Arg)

Another purchase from Keeneland in November, who will be bred for the first time in 2023, she is another person we have been trying to find a proven stallion for. Physically, she’s a stout, large person, so it would suit her candy ride. And he’s done well with the Empire Maker male line from which this bastard is hailed. Her family can also display agility on the track, and candy ride should play into it, as well.

MAD GRACE (8, English Channel—Floating Island, by AP Indy), bred to West Aloha

This is a tough, versatile race that Wasabi has claimed and will be bred for the first time in 2023. She has a lot of pages, and has turf and dirt horses, water runners. unplug and router on it. We are sending her to West Aloha, a first-year stallion would take every opportunity from the people of Mill Ridge. He’s just a dirt track sprinter himself, but his pedigree contains the same versatility as Mad Grace has shown, and we wouldn’t be surprised if he got kids. The horse runs longer than him and on the grass. He is a beautifully proportioned, very nicely built horse and we are happy to share with him and send a few mares to him.

FLORAL HALL (4, Bodemeister—Painted Lady, by Broad Brush) bred as Greatest Honor

Another Keeneland purchase in November, this time with her first pony blur, she goes to another freshman stallion that we greatly appreciate in the Greatest Honors. Physically, he’s an incredible model, and we think the foot swing he showed to win over Shug McGaughey in that Derby was down to an ill-fitting surface and profile. with his style means he’s had a big hit and offers a lot of value where Spendthrift values ​​him. This mare’s family has enjoyed great success with Pulpit stallions, and several Street Cry stallions who happen to be Greatest Honor stallions. So we like this pair very much.

WILD FOR LOVE (13, Not for Love—Sticky, by Concern) was bred to fauceturine

One of Wasabi’s first stallions, Wild for Love delivered her first foal to us as a Maryland stallion stake winner Circuit probethe son of faucet. She has a two-year-old ’23 by Maximus Mischief that brought in $160,000 as an aspiration year in 2022, but we’ve since gone back to that number faucet/Pulpit lined up with her–she’s a pony tacitus present, and we will send her to fauceture this spring. faucetHe has such a high runner-to-winner ratio, and also has a lot of bets – and his number of Not For Love mares is quite staggering (runner 4 to 4, winner two). the bet plus another black is placed). We hope we get another Maryland hybrid runner to reward us for years just like Local Motive.

WOWWHATABRAT (11, Louis Quatorize—Kim the Brat, by Smart Strike) bred with Blofeld

This mare is a fighter, ran 74 times in 8 years and made over $300,000. She’s placed second and fourth place bets, and comes from the family of New Money Honey, Any Given Saturday, and a good horse named Monday of June. After slipping last year, she is carrying her first pony by Jimmy Creed and it looks like she will be our first pony this year. We’ll be back-breeding her locally with Blofeld — the numbers he’s given are pretty astounding, with his first 14 ponies all winning and now She is standing at 29 winners out of 37 runners-up (out of 50 ponies). He’s already had winners in both of the Maryland Million two-year-old races in 2022. He’s got a few well-deserved winners from a half-sister to Wowwhatabrat, and this mating doubles on Broodmare of the Year Misty Morn, and two more the crosses of her dam, Gray Flight. Too far to be considered the Rasmussen Factor, but hopefully it still works.
