MY FAVORITE HORSE – NOEL & VAL RODDICK

After trying to breed our own racehorse at our Ladner farm without success we decided to claim. Rob Van Overschot kept looking and in May 1997, after enthusiastic approval by the gang at Roddick Fertilizer, we claimed Bali Beauty, a three year old filly. She won 2 in a row ridden by Dan Brock  and then was 3rd in an allowance. Stakes proved more difficult but then in the Oaks she came from  behind to win by 1 1/2 lengths under an inspired ride by Chris Loseth. Next run was at Santa Anita  in December in the La Brea at 7 furlongs. Racing Form said “she’s never seen the likes of these”  but she came fifth out of 12 ridden by Victor Espinoza making a come-back. We had a real day out in
the Directors Lounge with the Van Overschots and Hoggards and Bob McPherson. Sat next to the Pabst family – they make beer. Bali Beauty won the Cover Girl in 1998 and might have done more if Strawberry Morn had not been around. After racing she went to John Gunthers  Glennwood farm in Kentucky where she was bred twice to Marquetry, then to Skywalker and Albert the Great. She had five foals, four of them winners with Harold Barroby but  none as good as she was. We had a lot of fun with our horses but they don’t call it the The Sport  of Kings for nothing!

Noel and Val Roddick.

A New Membership Benefit for CTHS BC Members

The CTHS BC Board of Directors is pleased to offer to all its BC CTHS members with a full membership the opportunity to check their mare’s potential mating using the G1Goldmine Stallion Match Program for FREE. G1Goldmine is a pedigree program that can be found at www.g1goldmine.com.

Stallion Match® – A unique mating service that provides a breeder with the ability to identify other high-class racehorses that have a similar pedigree to the one they are considering.

Stallions registered with the G1Goldmine program allow for free Stallion Matching with your mares by signing up for an account. The only BC stallion registered currently is Ralis and he can be looked at for free for those who sign up. We would like to give BC breeders the opportunity to check their mares with other BC sires not registered at no charge. This tool looks at the entire pedigree rather than just stallion to stallion. Explanation and other options are available at the G1Goldmine site.

Please visit www.cthsbc.org and on the homepage under “Quick Links” click on the G1Goldmine logo. Complete and submit the requested information on the nicking application form and you will receive an email with the results attached. Please note that it is critical that you spell your mare’s name correctly and supply the year of birth in case there are multiple mares with that name.
