Where is St Trinians?

Just wondering if anyone knows where St Trinians has ended up? The last thing I can find on her says she was to be sold at the 2011 Fasig Tipton fall sale. When i looked up the results it has her listed as "OUT". Does that mean she was sold privately? (Also it has her listed as Male which I thought was weird, but I am sure it was her in the listing)
Anyone know anything?


  • She was purchased as a broodmare prospect at the Keeneland January sale by Sierra Farm for $80,000, which is a steal.

    In the F-T November catalog, she's listed as a Mare, not a male. M = mare, F = filly, C = colt, G = gelding, H = horse (adult intact male), R = ridgling

    Looked up seirra farm....no mention of her...said that they breed Missouri fox trotting horses...
  • There seem to be two Sierra Farms. The one that breeds Foxtrotters is located in Liberty, KY and has a 606 area code. There is one in the Lexington area, (859) 253-0921. I believe they are a TB breeding farm. (They don't have a website, but a search reveals that some horses bred by a "Sierra Farm" were sold through Keeneland.) Call them and ask. The worst that can happen is they will say you have the wrong farm. Who knows? If they bought her, they might be thrilled to hear from her fans.

    there is a seina farm in paris ky....they breed thoroughbreds...found their web site...but no mention of her
  • It's definitely Sierra Farm that bought her, not Siena Farm.

    Thanks so much @lauraj_cincinnati I thought it so odd not to hear anything about her at least from Bloodhorse. My YouTube suggests videos I might like and after I rewatched Zenyatta in this race I just thought that I never heard where St Trinians ended up. But I am shocked that she was bought for so little!!! Lordy they are going to turn a profit on her with her first foal. Can't believe that a horse that made such a run at The Queen would go for so, relatively, cheap. Well good for them, great buy.
    Also, how did you find out where she ended up (ie at Keeneland)? I scoured for an hour! Lol
    And lol I think I had a brain melt on the M = mare thing.

    if nothing turns up before next yr...after she foals you may be able to get info from breeders cup site....they register the foals ...unnamed...by year of birth and mom's name..but it would be a long time to wait...its how we found out this yr when Alys foaled because for some reason she never made it on to the LE list...
    ps...register may not be the correct word...it may be nominate
  • Also, how did you find out where she ended up (ie at Keeneland)?
    I watched the auction--a few of us were following on the diary. I looked up the results to see who the buyer was.

    She probably sold cheap for two reasons: first, she has a lot of unfamiliar Euro horses in her pedigree and second, her eggbeater running motion does her no favors. If her babies run with her heart and determination, they'll be gems.

    Oh, I just posted about St Trinians on the main page and then saw this. I have been looking for her too. Yesterday I saw her former trainer and asked him about her, he was not chatty cathy to say the least! But a very nice lady in his party took the time to tell me she is doing well, she is in KY (she couldn't rmemb. name of farm) and is in foal to Lohnro! She was bred early in the season, so hers should be amongst the first foals born. The lady said St T was a fav of her's too and she will tweet when the foal is born to let everyone know. Mr M. did warm up considerably toward the end of the conversation you will be pleased to know. I think he was just thinking about something else when I first asked. I'm so glad we were able to find out, I was a bit worried about her before.
    By the way, do you know where her name comes from? It's from some very old British movies, like black n white old, The Girls From St Trinian's. Comedy about some naughty girls at a boarding school. Some beloved comics who have long since departed stared in the films. The girls keep getting the groundskeeper (or someone) to put horse race bets on for them, hence her name. If you like old British comedy, you will get a laugh out of these. I heard they did some remakes, haven't seen them, so I'd stick with the originals.
  • Thanks for the info.

  • kurtkurt Member
    i contacted darley about a January visit to coincide with the keeneland sale. the lady that replied said that the January open house is her favorite because"all the boys are back from the southern hemisphere and we get to show them off" so i assume that includes lonrho..has anyone reading this thread called the number that LAURAJ posted for siera farm?..if not i'll gladly do it..i'd love to try n see st.t in january..

    St Trinians was in the Keeneland Jan. Sales Hip 539
    At the bottom is the link to the sales page.
    FYI-Lane's End was the agent at both the Fasig-Tipton & Keeneland Sales
    If you e-mail Lane's End, maybe they will say what farm has St Trinians.

    Keeneland January sale looks to build on fall sale's momentum
    By Glenye Cain Oakford
    LEXINGTON, Ky. – Keeneland’s January mixed auction, which runs Jan. 9-12, already has one positive factor: a 13 percent smaller catalog. Shorter supply helped the Thoroughbred market achieve better stability last season, and it’s one of the reasons Keeneland sale director Geoffrey Russell feels optimistic about the 2012 January sale. Another reason: the autumn’s better-than-expected sale results for both yearlings and breeding stock.
    “We hope the momentum that was created in 2011’s sales, and the stability there, will continue on,” Russell said. “I think the catalog is comparable to last year. The size is a little bit less, and, according to Economics 101, I’m hoping that will help supply and demand.
    “In 2011, we saw people who were frustrated with their investments put more money back into the Thoroughbred market, which I think is good. They’re not making very much money in stocks, and they have cash, so they’re investing it in things they know, like Thoroughbreds. The fact that all the million-dollar horses in September were bought by domestic buyers and a large percentage of the million-dollar mares in November were bought by domestic interests also shows that the American breeder is back in it again after taking a step back, understandably, for two or three years.”
    While foreign-based buyers do participate at this sale (last year’s sale-topper, $1.4 million Ave, went to Japan’s Shadai Farm), American breeders are the auction’s traditional backbone. This year, they’ll have fewer horses to consider. The four-day 2012 January sale cataloged 1,594 horses. As of Friday morning, 255 horses had scratched from the sale, leaving 1,339 horses of all ages: racing prospects, yearlings, broodmares, broodmare prospects, and stallions. The categories Russell expects to perform most strongly are racing-age horses and broodmare prospects, traditionally strong offerings at this auction, as well as yearlings – called “short yearlings” in January because they only turned a year old officially on Jan. 1. The last category should benefit from pinhookers, speculators who buy to resell, that enjoyed good returns in 2011’s recovering yearling auction season.
    “We’ve heard that some weanling-to-yearling pinhookers didn’t fill all their orders in November, so hopefully they’ll be busy looking at short yearlings,” Russell said.
    Fall breeding stock sales, both at Keeneland and its cross-town rival Fasig-Tipton (and at overseas venues, too), posted hefty increases last year. Boosted considerably by the late Ned Evans’s tony dispersal and the presence of recent Breeders’ Cup Ladies’ Classic winner Royal Delta, who brought a sale-topping $8.5 million from Benjamin Leon, Keeneland’s November auction soared. Average price shot up 62 percent, and median improved by 41 percent. Earlier, the Fasig-Tipton sale rang up a 32 percent average price increase and a 54 percent gain in median. In such a competitive atmosphere, some buyers couldn’t afford the horses they wanted, and that could bode well for the January auction.
    “I know some people went home from November without buying horses, so hopefully they’ll be here in January,” Russell said.
    Six weeks away from the breeding season’s mid-February opening, broodmares and broodmare prospects usually are the January auction’s stars. Given last fall’s prices for quality mares, they’ll especially bear watching in January.
    This year, the catalog includes several mares who already have good produce records, including a pair that became Grade 1 producers after the catalog’s publication. Letithappencaptain, Hip No. 408, got a brilliant update when her son Ultimate Eagle captured the Nov. 27 Hollywood Derby. She’s offered in foal to Bellamy Road. And Topliner, cataloged as Hip No. 198 in foal to Medaglia d’Oro, is the dam of Nov. 25 Matriarch winner Star Billing.
    Of course, those aren’t the only Grade 1-connected horses in the catalog. Other mares with Grade 1 winners include Ice Box’s dam Spice Island (153), carrying a full sibling; and Pioneerof the Nile’s dam Star of Goshen (157), in foal to Zensational. Among other mares with Grade 1 performers are the dams of Caracortado (61), Danzon (229), Workin for Hops (294), Silver Knockers (396), Barcola (449), By the Light (691), Gitchee Goomie (895), Checker Hall (1033), and Roman Commander (1163), to name a few.
    There’s a healthy supply of Grade 1 performers among the broodmares and racing/broodmare prospects, too. Some of these are Dr. Zic (696), Jessica Is Back (385), Mrs. Lindsay (448), Grace Anatomy (355), Satans Quick Chick (124), She’s Cheeky (134), Singapore Lilly (139), St Trinians (539), Summer Wind Dancer (543), Tanda (553), Cozi Rosie (675), and Indulgence (754) There also is an unusually interesting unraced broodmare. That’s Magnificent Honour (417), a daughter of Broodmare of the Year Better Than Honour and a full sister to champion Rags to Riches. She’s carrying a Giant’s Causeway foal.
    Speaking of Grade 1 winners, stallion prospect E Z’s Gentleman (1187) fits that bill. The catalog also includes Grade 1-placed Coronet of a Baron (1184) and Desert Key (1185) as well as $700,000-plus earner Ibboyee (1592) in its listing of stallion prospects.
    The auction takes place in Keeneland’s sale pavilion Jan. 9-12, with sessions starting at 10 a.m. daily. The sale streams live at www.keeneland.com.
  • FOUND and CONFIRMED. spoke to a gentleman at Sierra farm yesterday as I was stepping up my efforts to find her as my ky trip is only a week away.
    he confirmed that st. trinians is there and is in foal to Lonrho on an early cover. he said shes very pregnant and beautiful, doing well and the best part is "im welcome to come visit her when im in Kentucky in January"
    im really excited about getting to see st.t. ive contacted several farms and am going to be allowed to visit several great mares including "grace","serena" and others...just not sure if ky climate is going to accommodate my shorts and t-shirt California wardrobe :o)
  • Oooo, take pictures!

    Also, bring a coat, hat and gloves, or plan to buy them on the way to your hotel. It can get quite cold in central KY this time of year. Not to mention that you will be outdoors while visiting horses. Bring shoes you can walk in.

    And please tell St. Trinians that she has many fans, and that we wish her a happy, healthy foal.
