Offshore Dreams, impressive winner of the Prix D’Amerique is still another outstanding son of International winner Reve D’Udon, sire also of the Internationally celebrated and Perretti Farms stallion REVENUE.

And like his paternal half brother, Offshore Dreams descends from classic American maternal bloodlines with his third dam being Seascape Lobell a full sister to Speedy Somolli.

Speedy Somolli also shows up as the sire of the dam’s sire Tarass Boulba aligning foundation dam Somolli in a 3x4 position maternally.

Revenue as has been documented here before is strictly American on his maternal side tracing back to the immortal Scotch Love, dam of Speedy Crown and Arnie Almahurst’s sire Speedy Scot.

Just think future Prix D’Amerique winners can be manufactured right here via REVENUE.

It’s time to ROCKNROLL

Our first Rocknroll Hanover baby has hit the ground and she’s a sturdy filly indeed from Joyeaux, the Artsplace sister to the super fast Quik Pulse Mindale p,3,1:48, he now a Pennsylvania stallion.

And at first glance the resemblance to the sire Rocknroll Hanover is indeed noticeable!

Whereas it is understandable the differentials between perceptions and actualities, those in the service business are acutely aware how often the perceptions will supercede actualities in the court of public opinion.

It matters less whether an alleged offense was actually committed if court of public opinion perceives that it was and proceeds to act accordingly.

Which could be the failure of an ostensibly eligible candidate to make the “hall of fame” due to the perception that eligibility standards were obtained and/or enhanced via artificial and/or illegal substances.

Conversely there will be those who will no longer frequent certain stores due to the perception that indicted wrongdoers received mere wrist slaps regardless of the ultimate ramification and severity of the infractions. To the court of public opinion, this is often the conclusion when reduced penalties exchanged for time saving plea bargains leave the original issue in a pool of semantic ambiguity.

The problem is these court of public opinion perceptions tend to linger long after the actual incident has been swept under the proverbial rug-which mandates a significant percentage of the customer base never to return to the store.

Therefore it would appear that those stores dependant on public patronization would be more sensitive to court of public opinion sentiments and act accordingly.

Statistically speaking the Jersey breds again excelled in the all important earnings category. This may not have been totally reflected in the yearling sales as many of those from slots infused locales did bring noticeable bidding numbers.

However, the top pair of freshman pacing colts-earnings wise were indeed Yankee Skyscaper and Artzina both by Artiscape and with Laughing Art placing 7th, New Jersey led with three listings among the top 10 money winners. There were also three New Jersey bred fillies among the top 10 money winners tying the Garden State with Ontario for those honors.

No less than five of the top ten money winning 3-year-old pacing colts were New Jersey Sired. Among them were Artistic Fella, Feelin Friskie, Armbro Deuce, Shark Gesture 2,nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th respectively and the 8th ranked Western Ace. Collectively the glamour boy quintet earned in excess of $3.3 million in 2006.

In addition the leading candidates for HOY (Horse of The Year) are the Jersey Sired trotters Glidemaster and Passionate Glide.

In other words the Jersey breds continue to EARN huge regardless of what some may actually cost!
