Friday’s News – updated
Phil and I had a memorable morning and lunch at Dalham Hall Stud attending the Darley Stallion Parade, an invitation thats much sought after, as much for the quality of the hospitality on offer as well as the parade of their wonderful stallions. It was great to see Authorized whom Lady Chloe is expecting to, and the whole morning was just superb. We saw one of the worlds top stallions, Dubawi, and it was impressive how relaxed and well behaved most of them were, i will be uploading a video to share with those that are interested to see it.
After doing a big write up on Ross and Call it On yesterday, we were frustrated to make him a non runner due to the ground going good to firm. Ross switched to Enzaal but he dissapointed again and this was his last chance yesterday, he is now looking for his next career.
O’ly Roccs was sold for £8k and he is going somewhere warmer, bound for the all weather to Quatar. There was a fair bit of interest in him, we are sorry to see him go.
We purchased a couple of extremely well bred unraced 3 year old colts to put away for a year to make bumper horses, two to look forward to for the future and bought at a fraction of their stud fees; Below is a colt by Champs Elysees, out of a daughter of Oaks Winner Wemyss Bight, herself a full sister to top NH stallion Beat Hollow.
The second unraced colt is by top sire Dansili (£100k stud fee) out of a Multiple Group 2 winning mare who has already bred a group 2 winner from her only foal of racing age to date. She has a foal by Frankel and is back in foal to him. This lovely big colt is gangly and needs time, but has a good frame and moves well and is one we are happy to put in the field.
Quadriga passed his stalls test with flying colours yesterday and he runs at Hamilton on Saturday evening ridden by Gary Whillans. Going up to Hamilton with him is the 2 year old colt, Mr Chuckles and Triple Eight. Also on Saturday is Pass Muster at York, its ultra competitive and he runs off bottom weight. Good luck to all our Owners on a busy days racing for us tomorrow.
