John Dance spending spree headlined by £120,000 Dark Angel colt at Premier Sale

John Dance was busy stocking up ahead of his Manor House Stud training operation opening for business with James Horton, who will hold the licence at the Middleham property, and bloodstock agent Ed Sackville walking away from day one of the Goffs UK Premier Sale in Doncaster having signed for the £120,000 top lot.

Consigned by Yeomanstown Stud, the session-topping colt is a son of Dark Angel and the Listed-winning Elusive Pimpernel mare Elusive Beauty. Horton and Sackville were busy throughout the session and also secured a £95,000 Showcasing filly out of Girls Talk and later added a Havana Gold colt in a private sale at £40,000, both of whom were consigned by Lynn Lodge Stud.

The three acquisitions meant Manor House Stud’s day one spend clocked in at £255,000.
