PORTO ERCOLE 10% or 20%

This attractive filly by Caravaggio is from a classy family & will continue to show improvement as Phil steps her up in trip. She has a good attitude at home. We can recommend this small partnership to get involved with as they are a very friendly group. Ready to run again in the next fortnight.

BEE THE DIFFERENCE 100%, 50%, 25%


£10,000 plus VAT or £5000 + VAT for 50% £2500 + VAT 25%

Phil bought this consistent gelding rated 104 over hurdles back from the sales off an Owner as he feels he is a young, tough, sound and genuine performer who can bring a lot of fun and success, and also has the size and scope to jump a fence. He goes on most ground except too quick and is having a nice break now in the summer ready to run by start of October. He ran 8 times for us last season and was into the winners enclosure on 7 of those starts, only once out of the frame when 6th of 11 on good ground. His form was 2nd, 1st, 1st, 3rd, 3rd, 6th, 2nd, 4th. What a consistent horse he is, and if someone buys 50% and 2 parties buy 25% he can run in the 50% Owners colours. If 2 people buy 50% he can run in alternately switching colours.

In WELL BRED ‘YEATS ’ 2 year old BORIS to make a NH performer


Boris as a handsome yearling, he is now officially 2

Your chance to buy your National Horse early at a price much more favourable than if waiting until he was 3 at the Store Sales.

🐎💙 BORIS 💙🐎 he had a ‘touch & go’ start and a very special Foster mare… he is now a 2 year old NATIONAL HUNT PROSPECT – a 20 Owner Partnership. Boris is strong & well grown, he looks very similar to the rest of his siblings with good bone and correct limbs, he has also got a very bold and friendly attitude. Yeats performers have done so well over the last few years including 4 winners at last years Cheltenham festival. We have had success with Yeats horses including the diminutive ‘Little Bruce’ who won 2 regional Grand Nationals for us as well as many other races. We hope that Boris matures into an exciting national hunt prospect with that bit of speed from his dams side. Lady Chloe was a classy flat & hurdles winner.

As an owner in him you would be welcome to visit any time, and this gets more interesting once he is broken in, he will learn to have tack and be lunged later this year. He’ll be cantered with the string next year and learn to gallop upsides as a 4 year old . He may run in the Spring or Autumn of his 4 year old year. We find the enjoyment of the journey to this point is part of the pleasure in being in our Partnerships, seeing them progress and learn to be racehorses. We would hold a breakfast morning in his three-year-old year, when fellow owners can meet each other and watch his progress on the gallops as he learns to canter away.

Any further questions please don’t hesitate to ask, and we hope you decide to get involved. You are most welcome to come & visit & view him first.
Please contact Pippa on 07711709876 or to be sent the full details.

We are offering him at a price that covers all our expenses, not to make a big profit – we enjoy breeding on a small scale and if we can keep the ones we breed to race by selling them sensibly to stay on the yard it is much more enjoyable.

We all remember him returning from Coolmore with his amazing foster mare ‘Norah Batty’ .


His real dam is Lady Chloe who had a milk problem that year so he was fostered…Boris thrived and became a firm favourite with our Facebook followers. His classy dam won on the flat and over hurdles for us but a race injury on her second NH start curtailed her career ( she had won first time out in her juvenile ). Lady Chloe’s first foal was ‘Lord Rococco’ who won twice over hurdles ( including a novice) before we tragically lost him.

This was his half brother Lord Rococco winning his second hurdle race.

Shares can be ‘shared’ in your family unit. More than one share can be purchased. All owners will be listed for everyone to see.

Cost of purchase share 5% £1000 plus £200 VAT (returnable)

2 Payments of £300  for his 2 YEAR OLD YEAR 2022

2 payments of £500 for his 3 year old year 2023 (includes breaking in and light training)

2 payments of £625 in his 4 year old year (he may run Autumn 2024) and for future years. This is our ‘all in’ price for all 20 Owner Partnerships that covers all eventualities.

As one of our Partnership horse Boris’s future is assured, he will never be sold on and eventually be found a permanant loan home when his racing days are over.

To be sent details please email You are very welcome to come and view him before making your decision.
