Defining Hope delivered a very nice 124 lb Cross Traffic filly born at Margaux Farm about 11:30pm on Sunday, February 23, 2020. Boy, does she have a lot of spunk and sass! We visited her when she was 6 days old and she reminds me of Hope at that age. She was running her mother all over the paddock. No rest for the weary! Hope is such a great mother. Looking forward to seeing how her filly and On the Point’s filly develop. The fillies rule in 2020! Check out the pics below from our visit.
There is a first for everything and this past November I had the opportunity to sell my first horse at the industry’s premier Breeding auction, the Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale. I’d first like to thank Coolmore and Margaux Farm for their support of the weenling colt. His “specialness” was recognized literally from birth.
Defining Hope’s first foal, a colt, was sold as a weenling by Four Star Sales. Four Star did an amazing job! Ashley and Liz were a pleasure to work as well as Amanda at Margaux Farm who helped guide me through the process. Looking forward to working with them in the future.
The colt handled the auction experience extremely well. I could see Defining Hope’s influence both in his behavior in the back ring and as he entered the sales ring. He entered with such confidence. I was so proud! A big thanks goes out to Sarah at Margaux Farm for all of her efforts in his sales prep.
