Your Turn: Time To Vote On Your Selections For Rachel Alexandra's First Mate
Written by Byron Rogers | Oct 01, 2009 |
After two posts and 232 comments by our readers, it is now time for you to vote on the stallion that you would like to see Rachel Alexandra mated to in her first season at stud.
We must say that there were some outstanding suggestions made by our TrueNicks community and we are thrilled that you have taken the time to come up with the suggestions that you have. We had a wide range of stallions suggested from A.P. Indy (TrueNicks,SRO) to The Green Monkey (TrueNicks,SRO)
in North America and the likes of Monsun (a very popular choice) in Europe, Redoute's Choice in Australia, Al Mufti in South Africa and Deep Impact in Japan.
The most popular suggestion in the 232 comments was actually the Three Chimneys stallion Dynaformer (TrueNicks,SRO)
. We have left him on the list of stallions that you can now cast your vote for even thought it is unlikely that Rachel Alexandra will go there as he does not serve maiden mares. Maybe one to consider for year two or three. Curlin (TrueNicks,SRO), Street Cry (IRE) (TrueNicks,SRO)
, A. P. Indy, Giant's Causeway (TrueNicks,SRO)
and Smart Strike (TrueNicks,SRO)
were also popular choices.
Here is how this part of the process works. All of the stallions that have been suggested are listed below. It is now up to you to vote and it is a two step process. Firstly, pick your stallion and secondly in the area below you can write a brief description on why you selected the stallion. If you have already written on one of the two blog entries, here or here, why you like the stallion you have chosen, you can just cut and paste the words into the required area.
Voting on the stallions listed below will close on Friday October 9th. After that, Alan Porter and the team at TrueNicks will look at the 7 most popular stallions and judge the entries on each stallion made and finalize the Broodmare Analysis Report for presentation to Jess Jackson and the team at Stonestreet during the November Breeding Sale.
