Rayona won her fifth race of the year on the weekend at Turfway. She’s the first foal out of Zienat, a Woodman mare I bought privately for J. C. Davis of Henderson, KY. Zienat was a $260,000 yearling so you can imagine how good looking she is.

I bought her for $7000 after she failed to bring a reserve amount. Her second foal for Davis is Rayona who boosted her earnings to $93,000.

You can always find these heavily discounted opportunities if you are attuned to the race track and pay attention to broodmare trends. You didn’t have to be Tesio to invest in the idea of Woodman turning out good broodmares.

Most of my readers are too busy doing other things to notice the subtle ways of the marketplace. That’s why you need me to do the shopping!
