In the spotlight

Cold and fresh this morning, with spring around the corner it will soon be the start of the turf season. Do you have a horse to go to war with?

Many of the yearlings we purchased at the end of last year now have lovely new owners. Now two years old, there are still a few yet to be sold and a couple with shares available. As we've said before, the last horses to sell in previous years have turned out to be some of the best, last year it was Cuppacoffee who went on to win twice from six starts, including on debut, and the year before that it was the talented King's Mimic. Today we've highlighted three horses; one colt, two fillies. 

First up, a cracking colt by Canford Cliffs - a stallion we really like. A power-house colt with a gorgeous head, I can't quite believe he hasn't been snapped up yet. He was broken in in October, ridden and liked by all the lads and got to the top of the all-weather nicely. He is out of a Green Desert mare who is proven to produce winners including 96 rated Roker Park and is herself a winner. You can view his page here which includes his pedigree and footage of him being lunged. He is also photographed below.  

Next up we have a flashy filly by Equiano. She's looking really well, has a fabulous skin that flashes gold in the sunlight and has really strengthened up since she arrived from the sales. We believe her to be a bargain, cheaply bought simply because of her unfortunate placing in the sale, the penultimate lot of 655 horses. We have done well with Equiano's, group 3 winner Dark Reckoning being the stand out, who, like this filly was a racy individual. This pretty chestnut is also Plus 10 qualified. You can view her page here and see her photo below. 

Last but by no means least is our lovely girl by Intense Focus, sire to the afore mentioned 'Cuppacoffee'. She lived out before she came to us and this filly has done a lot of good over the winter, certainly looking every inch a two year old type. She is currently being broken in and will be backed and ridden away by the end of the month. She comes from a stud farm in Ireland who are retaining a half share in her so there is 50% available - she comes with naming rights and would run in your colours. As she hasn't been through the ring her pedigree page isn't available but you can view her page on our website here and as with the others she can be seen  at home.
