This is due to my service provider Telecom going through a meltdown here.

In the meantime the lack of functioning blog time on the weekend meant I dismantled my old chook run, dug over my winter garden bed, and spent time with the horses.

Destination America!

Also caught up with the news that Destination Moon has been sold for good money to America to Diamond Creek Racing (the link to their blogsite for their breeding farm is on my home page as usual, but google their full name for their main website at Diamond Creek Farm and look at their lovely range of broodmares! They are getting more active in the racing scene now.)

I understand the trainer for Destination Moon may be Linda Toscano, but that hasn’t been confirmed. She’s one of the top trainers in NY/Jersey.

He’s a horse with a huge willingness to learn and go for it! So I hope he gets over the usual road bumps there and does well. He went with Commander Galleon (also from Steven Reid’s stable) and a trotter I thought had a lot of natural speed.

Heads up about this blog from Kentucky stud Diamond Creek Farm owned by Adam Bowden and his father, Chris. The farm arrived on the Standardbred scene in 2005  and in this short time the farm has bred, or raised and sold, such top stakes winners as Archangel, Vertical Horizon, Valentino and Big Rigs and campaigned top stakes colts and fillies, such as Ultimate Cameron, Swan For All, A Rocknroll Dance, and Naughtytiltheend. The farm’s yearlings are sold at the Lexington Selected and Harrisburg sales each fall.

Adam writes a very good blog which covers the day to day events on the farm and the progress of his yearlings through to sales, as well as his thoughts on other issues around breeding.

I really recommend it as a well written, interesting read.

You can find their website at:


which has a blog summary and link, or straight to the blog (which is called Inner Workings of a Breeding Farm) at:
