Updates on Waveland

UPDATE 12/18/18 Waveland is currently boarded at the lovely Wyn Oak Farm after giving birth to her Jump Start foal earlier this year.  The plan is to breed her back to Jump Start in early 2019.

UPDATE 1/1/19

  • Waveland is currently under expert care at Wyn Oak Farm and her foal is being raised at Green Mount Farm. Waveland is currently undergoing a process called being “under lights” to get her cycling as soon as possible. In the wild, mares cycle in spring based on increased sunlight, so Waveland is in a stall with the lights on before sunrise and after sunset.

  • Waveland will be bred to Jump Start  in 2019. Waveland has had considerable success with the A.P. Indy sire-line, we believe that breeding her with a top representative of this line will continue that pattern of success.

Why We Bought This Horse

  • This is a Broodmare Program offering and subject to the WVS Broodmare Program. 
  • This was a great opportunity to get a stakes producing mare plus a Jump Start filly weanling from the mare.   We were able to work out this package deal and also get all of the breeder bonus rights for the weanling!   Jump Start is one of the most productive regional sires in the entire Mid-Atlantic area.
  • Pennsylvania has one of the best breeding bonus programs in the country.  
  • This mare will be based at WynOak Farm in Pennsylvania, we may eventually move this mare to Maryland or we may leave it in Pennsylvania.  Plans will depend on many 2019 conditions.   
  • Our plan is to sell the weanling as a yearling next year.   That means that this opportunity may get an earlier than expected liquidity event.  
  • You can read the entire Houstatonic Bloodstock write up on this page.

NOTE:   Our partner, Housatonic Bloodstock will be buying 25% of this broodmare opportunity (and covering 25% of the on-going expenses).   Wasabi Ventures Stables will be retaining 20% and 55% will be available to Club members.

NOTE ON PRICING: Since this mare is not pregnant, we will adding the estimated base $5,000 first year stud fee on to the price.   This $5,000 goes in as pre-paid training expenses on the opportunity and is credited as such.   We were able to pay $9,500 for the entire package.  This plus the $5,000 makes up the entire cost.

Tidbits from the Pedigree

Pedigree thoughts from Housatonic Bloodstock

A daughter of Woodman, who is already the broodmare sire of over 200 stakes winners, Waveland was a winner of two races at 3-years-old for Team Valor International (once going 7 furlongs on turf, the other at a mile-and-a-quarter on the all-weather surface at Woodbine). Her first foal was Sailor’s Revenge, who took the Auld Lang Syne Stakes at Parx among his ten career victories, and also placed in two other stakes races while totaling career earnings of $477,543. Since then, Waveland has produced three winners from four other foals to race, one of which has earned $147,452 and another of which is at $83,045 and still racing. (Her only non-winner was placed before an accident ended his career.) Waveland currently has a yearling colt by the exciting freshman stallion Flashback pointing to the OBS March Select Sale next spring.

Waveland’s dam, Wave On, won four turf races in maiden special weight and allowance company during her seven-race career, and produced multiple Grade 3 winner Sailor’s Cap, stakes-placed winners Royal Wave and Churchill Fire, and five other winners in addition to Waveland. Wave On is herself a half-sister to Grade 3 winner Valor Lady, both of them out of Grade 3 winner Hot Option.

Waveland was acquired with with her 2018 Pennsylvania-bred filly foal by Jump Start. Jump Start’s 45 career Northern Hemisphere stakes winners are good for 5% of his foals, which includes recent Saratoga juvenile Grade 2 winner Sue’s Fortune, along with 11 other Graded Stakes winners. Himself a Grade 2-winning 2-year-old, Jump Start has ranked as the leading Mid-Atlantic sire by earnings every year since 2014, and he has done particularly well with foals inbred 4×3 to Mr. Prospector like this filly is — most noteworthy among those successes being his Grade 1 winner, Rail Trip. Not to mention that Jump Start is a son of A.P. Indy, whose grandson Purge is the sire of Waveland’s stakes-winning son Sailor’s Revenge.

The Jump Start filly will be eligible for the extremely lucrative Pennsylvania-bred program and its enhanced bonuses for Pennsylvania-sired foals.

Waveland’s produce record is as follows:

  • 2010 Sailor’s Revenge (gelding by Purge) – 10 wins, 2- through 6-years-old, including Auld Lang Syne S.  Earned $477,543.
  • 2011 I’m Not Dun (gelding by Dunkirk) – placed at 3-years-old.
  • 2012 Jason’s Angel (filly by Ecclesiastic) – 3 wins, 3- through 6-years-old.  Earned $147,452.
  • 2013 Majestic Woody (gelding by Majestic Warrior) – 4 wins, 3- through 5-years-old.  Earned $83,045.
  • 2015 Ticticboomdynamite (filly by Tizway) – winner at 2-years-old.  $22,769.
  • 2017 unnamed (colt by Flashback) – pointing to 2019 OBS March Select Sale.
  • 2018 unnamed (filly by Jump Start) – PA-bred filly foaled May 16th was purchased as a package with her dam.
