INTRODUCING LBB STABLES FORAY INTO BREEDING...

OFTEN TIPSY

OT Logo 2.jpg

One of two purchases from the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Yearling sale in October of 2021, this New York bred filly is by Always Dreaming out of Moonshine Bertie, who's family has produced a number of talented and successful fillies including Efforting and Thunder Bertie. Though we've been forced to move on from the racing portion of her career, we're excited to jump into the breeding side of the business and have "Tipsy" as our first broodmare. 

- As this is our foray into breeding, we're using this opportunity to maximize the learning experience for our partners: as we learn, we want our Partners to learn and be involved every step of the way.

 

- Being an unraced daughter of Always Dreaming, the commercial appeal for her foals in the market will likely be very light. For that reason, we will focus on breeding to race, while always being open to the possibility of selling.

- To that end, we're excited to partner with Justyn Harper and Kali Kleinfelt of Hawk Hill Farm in Sterling, KY. Justyn and Kali have many years of experience in various aspects of the industry and will be a huge help as we navigate this experience for the first time.

- Our resident pedigree expert, Jessica Tugwell, will be working closely with our breeding team and manage Often Tipsy's program. She has compiled a shortlist of stallions for us to consider for this first mating, and has worked with third-party resources to find the right sire to begin our journey.

- We're excited to announce that we've chosen MO TOWN as Often Tipsy's first mate in 2024. More details can be found below.

In 2024, we'll be breeding Often Tipsy to hot, young sire MO TOWN! Join us for our first homebred opportunity, with the Often Tipsy 2025 Foal by Mo Town

WHY MO TOWN?
We're very keen on Mo Town as a value stallion - in only two crops, he’s gotten 69% starters, although only 50.8% of those are winners. While the percentage of winners might seem low, it is quite good for a second-crop sire - compare leading second-crop sires Justify (51.1% starters/44.4% winners), Good Magic (62.4% starters/50.7% winners), Bolt d’Oro (62.1% starters/56% winners), Mendelssohn (60.3% starters/50% winners), and City of Light (53.6% starters/45.5% winners). It’s notable that Mo Town has stakes winner Mazing Mark out of a mare by Malibu Moon, and the Bernardini/Malibu Moon cross has produced two stakes winners in just 16 starters to date (12.5%), making that inbreeding less of a concern. 

In addition, our selection of MO TOWN was supported by Goldmine Broodmare Analysis, where he is found to be a perfect, 20/20 stallion match for Often Tipsy. The Stallion Match shows Graded Stakes winners with similar pedigree to our proposed match. Stakes winners with similar pedigrees include By The Moon, Celesital City, Liason, Arabian Knight and Brightwork.

JOIN US FOR OUR FIRST HOMEBRED:
2025 Often Tipsy Foal

This is our first time breeding a broodmare, so we're learning as we go. We know that our patience will be tested. We know that it's not easy to get a homebred to the racetrack. But we also know that we have a nice mare, with solid bloodlines and a great team in place to guide us. We also know that our chosen sire, MO TOWN, is a great fit for OFTEN TIPSY, and is off to a great start as a stallion. 

WE'RE GONNA MAKE THIS FUN & EDUCATIONAL
As we learn, you will learn. This opportunity is about sharing the experience and process of breeding a mare. We'll get frequent updates from our team in Kentucky and share them with all of our Partners from prepping Tipsy, to the mating process and beyond. 


WITH PLENTY OF COMMUNICATION
The LBB Stables team will be sending out emails and using our Stable Connect app every week or two with updates on our progress, photos, videos and more. Regardless of your level of investment, you will be a part of the journey from start to finish.

Please Send More Info.

We’ll get back to you shortly.


AND ALL AT A REASONABLE INVESTMENT LEVEL
We want this to be a Partnership that everyone wants to get involved in, even at a lower share percentage. The initial investment goes a long way too - through August 2025, and covers boarding, breeding, vet, shipping and other miscellaneous expenses.
