Lane’s End Texas is perennially a leading stud farm in the Lone Star and once again is home to the state’s top-ranked stallion. VALID EXPECTATIONS led all sires in Texas, with his 2009 progeny earning $2,791,126. That’s more than $1.2 million more than the runner-up. VALID EXPECTATIONS’s get included eight stakes winners–five more than the runner-up–and the likes of Oak Motte, who was third in the $750,000 Boyd Gaming’s Delta Jackpot S. in December. Oak Motte had previously won the $125,000 My DandyTexas Stallion S. in September, keying a VALID EXPECTATIONS exacta over Big Texas Daddy.
VALID EXPECTATIONS also sired the exacta in the filly version of the race, the $125,000 Darby’s Daughter Texas Stallion S., with Camille’s Appeal defeating Bud’s Little Edge.
Lane’s End Texas is home to another promising young stallion in TOO MUCH BLING, whose first runners hit the track in 2010. A sprint sensation as a three-year-old of 2006, TOO MUCH BLING’s wins included the G2 Carry Back S., G2 San Vicente S. and G3 Bay Shore S. As a juvenile, he was third in the G1 Hopeful S. Watch for his juveniles at this spring’s two-year-old in training sales!
For the 2010 breeding season, Lane’s End Texas would like to offer a “Two for One” breeding to all of our stallions. The first mating carries a live-foal guarantee, the second is a no-guarantee season. Under these tough economic times, it’s our way of saying thanks to the breeders who have supported us over the years.
