We're off & running...with leading trainer Bruce Levine as our conditioner and yours truly, Bill Hirsch Hirsch Thoroughbred Management LLC as the managing partner. Our newly formed Genesis Stable was the successful bidder on Hip #227 at the OBS June Sale of 2-Year-Olds in Training in Ocala, FL, June 17, 2013. We paid $35,000 for this NY-Bred roan filly by Old Fashioned (father) out of Two Chimneys (mother). This partnership raised $80,000 so I love it that we will have $45,000 left over for expenses. This amount should last 10 months or so. We thank our trainer Bruce Levine for his efforts. He really likes this filly and remarks: "This filly had a nice video of her workout. She was striding out well and has a nice walk to her. She is an April foal and still has some growing to do and will probably be a 2-turn distance horse".

Fashion Commands


Old Fashioned, by Unbridled's Song

Two Chimneys, by Deputy Commander
Our filly's Pedigree & Sire and Breeze Video (scroll down to #277).

The 11 Genesis partners include Ken DeMarinis, Diane Drew, Steven Dugal, Gary Hacker, Managing Member Bill Hirsch, Will Hornsby, Don Larkin, Trainer Bruce Levine, Charles Mather, Keith Tingberg, Max Weintraub & Catherine Wright.

NAME-OUR-FILLY CONTEST: And the winner is...Fashion Commands!! Genesis trainer / partner Bruce Levine conjured up the clever moniker. When queried about the reason for his submission, Bruce explains: "I just tried to use parts of both the filly's sire, Old Fashioned, and grandsire, Deputy commander, into the selection. I liked the way the name sounds and let's hope she will do some commanding when she gets to the races." Finishing second was the name Old Fashioned Girl, supplied by partner Catherine Wright. In addition to bragging rights, Bruce will also proudly wear the winning prize: a choice of a brown or black leather belt which will have a custom-made, solid-brass nameplate with the engraved name Fashion Commands stitched to the belt a few inches from the belt buckle (see insert). These belts are very attractive and unique and will make quite a conversation piece. Any other partners that wish to order a similar belt may do so at their own expense; the all-inclusive price is $75. The belts are available in black or brown and in men and women sizes; let me know if you want to be fashionable and order any!
