Mojo's New Trio of Yearlings: 2017 Keeneland September Sale

"We accomplished our goal of buying three nice horses at the 2017 Keeneland September Yearling Sale," said Mojo's CEM, Fred Taylor.  "That said, it wasn't easy this year as Keeneland reported having their highest gross sales since 2008 (the year before the global economic crisis).  The challenge of finding the horses we liked and staying within our budget was difficult to say the least; but with patience and discipline, we got it done."

All three of these Yearlings will be bundled into our new Mojo Group.  "I like their conformation and pedigrees because it's a good mix of new stallions and accomplished mares.  These babies fit the mold for JR's (Mojo's Trainer, JR Caldwell) program and we're looking forward to their development as racehorses," Fred explains.

Mojo's three-horse strategy has worked well for our race groups in previous years, and the overall objective is to continue (and hopefully improve upon) the same success.

This colt stems from the popular War Front (by Danzig) lineage that is by a stallion who was a multiple Grade 1 winner that earned over $1.8 Million in Europe, and his first foals are 2-year-olds in 2017.  The mare is a stakes- placed winner of over $86,000 and she has produced a multiple winner of over $75,000. This is her third foal.

This colt comes from the leading sire A.P. Indy lineage. The sire is a stakes-placed winner of over $134,000 and his first foals are 2-year-olds in 2017.  The mare is a stakes-placed winner of over $148,000 that is the sister to graded stakes winners Unusual Suspect and Golden Doc A.  She has produced three winners, and one is a multiple graded stakes winner (that is still racing).  This is her seventh foal.

This filly also comes from the Danzig lineage of classic stallions.  Her sire is a multiple graded stakes winner of over $3.6 Million and his first foals are 2-year-olds in 2017.  The mare is a multiple winner that has produced a graded stakes winner and multiple winners.  This is her fifth foal.

Next Steps

Mojo will follow the general development plan that we use for our yearlings: Early break, time off, and racetrack preparation during 1Q next year. 

“All three horses have been shipped to Texas,” Fred explains.  “From there, they will start their initial schooling to be taught manners, how to take a saddle, rider, and learn basic directions (start, stop, turning, etc).  After some time off around Christmas to let their bodies rest and bones set, then they’ll begin initial training for the racetrack (which includes starting to breeze, incremental workouts, and gate schooling).
