    With an eye on horses to follow for 2007, does anyone know of any online resource which gives information on which mares have been/are to be covered in 2007 (obviously indicating that they have been retired from racing)?

    Apart from keeping an eye on the RP news section, I don’t know.  Mares don’t need to be registered as official broodmares until they are actually covered and covering certificates aren’t usually lodged until later in the year when stallions have completed their book, so there isn’t really a list from which to take this information.  Some very observant person might make it a mission to keep track of any news that has been announced, but I don’t know of a site.

    In addition, fillies that have been covered can continue racing until July, and obviously beyond that if the covering has been unsuccessful.  

    If there are individual fillies you are interested in, let me know and I’ll see if I can find out, but I think your best bet would be to check the RP cuttings library.

    some studs websites have mating plans, and in the RP paper they put some of the bigger studs mating plans in…..

    Are you looking for a certain mare?

    Good point about the stud websites.  Cheveley Park, for example, don’t list their mating plans, but have a current list of horses-in-training, which suggests that the likes of Nannina, Peeress, Echelon and Confidential Lady all remain in training for 2007.

    Ballymacoll Stud’s website is a good one too.

    Timeform’s Racehorses of 2006 lists plenty of fillies and mares that have been retired to stud. But that mainly comes from info in the public domain. As has been said, if it’s specific horses put them on the thread.

    Thanks for the replies.

    The horse I am interested in is Great Hope, a now 4yo filly trained last year by Jim Bolger. Given she is owned by the trainer’s wife and related to such as Sholokhov and Napper Tandy I think it’s long odds-on they will breed from her ultimately.

    Just I would have been interested in her as a racehorse were she still on the go in 2007.<br>

    The US studs – Lanes End, Three Chimneys etc are normally extremely good at this.

    If a high profile horse – European or US is in foal they normally detail it at bloodhorse.com or thoroughbred times.  

    Ouija Board for one is definitely in foal to Kingmambo.
