    Default Wow.....

    That has got to be the most power packed package I have ever seen.
    Just dream worthy. If that doesn't bring out the money things are indeed
    in bad shape. Anybody care to wager what she will bring?

    Isn't this the original Poetin's only foal? The scarcity value is enormous at this point.

    I'd think she'd bring in about 1/3 of Totilas, given that her foal making is very limited. Well over 1 million (American millions) Euros anyway.

    I wonder if they considered how the parts would match or bred based on bloodlines. ??

    Only 68,000 euro? That is pretty steep for a WB broodmare. Yeah, she has some illustrious bloodlines and she is in foal to "the man of the hour", but how do you think the buyer will feel if that foal is a total dud?

    That is tremendously cheap for her. Someone got a bargain. Her first foal, if a colt and it's halfway decent, should bring in more than her purchase price, if the WB people think about new stallions the way TB people do. Big price very early in the career before the performers actually strut their stuff, at least for sires with superior performance careers. No one knows yet if they are good sires or duds.

    To me this is a prime example of "breeding" for name recognition only.....

    Poetin and Jazz apparently didn't make that special a baby, so now the owner is trying to capitalize on the Totilas craze added to the Poetin story.

    It's not really breeding, it's trying to capitalize on horses.

    And when someone breeds for the sales and not for performance, that's precisely what they do.

    That is not really fair in this case. Poetin was a superior athlete with proven bloodlines and was bred to one of the most prolific producers of international level competitors in history. The resulting filly was in turn bred to what might be one of the best dressage horses in history with a pedigree to back him up, if not yet the progeny to show for it due to his freshman status.

    I think someone got a pretty good deal on the mare. And considering an in utero Totilas baby recently went for almost as much, I would bet they can recoup most or all of the price on the first foal.

    The owner of the late Poetin have a clone of the phenomenal mare that gave birth to a filly (by Fidertanz) and will have 3 foals in 2011 ( by embryo transfer), one of them by Totilas.

    Is it just me, or does he have funky looking front legs? The near side front looks turned in and far from straight.

    But I really don't know much about foal conformation and how it changes with maturation.

    Ah, we could have all formed a syndicate and bought her! If only we'd known... Think of the fun we could have had! I did like the mare, but suspect lightening might not strike as hard in Totilas' first foal crop as it has in papa and I always suspect that very talented horses may never reach their potential for so many different reasons! But the fun is in the striving for perfection and glory!
