We were very busy at the three-day Goffs May Sale at Doncaster last week, coming home with nine new horses!
Two well-bred three year old stores were purchased on day one; a Court Cave half-brother to very smart hurdler Campeador and a son of Kalanisi (pictured left), out of a half-sister to this year’s dual Grade 1 winner Minella Indo, whose successes included the Albert Bartlett at Cheltenham.
Brigade Of Guards (pictured right) finished third at Ascot on his final start for previous connections and looks a smart level-weights novice hurdler to go to war with in the autumn, as does Dothraki Prince, who has done very well in bumpers and is a good-moving five year old with plenty of scope to progress over obstacles this term.
Osca Loca won over fences last time out and is a smart mare in the making – I hope she can develop into a black-type mare in due course, while I was delighted to purchase the exciting pointer Freedelivery (pictured left), a son of proven Grade 1 sire Sholokhov and runner-up on his latest outing earlier this month. Cape Robin won on his latest start in Irish points and looks a real bargain, the son of Robin Des Champs having improved with each of his runs to date.
Blunder Buss looks a potentially very well-handicapped new recruit and I am looking forward to getting him started in the autumn, which is very much the case with Konigsberg, who boasts an impeccable pedigree, is blessed with a tremendous physique and looks a hugely exciting individual to run in bumpers in the season ahead.
Further details will follow on the website and on Twitter in the coming week, but if you are interested in further details on any of the above then please get in touch, either by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call me on 07841 800081.
