30 Apr The flat is back!
The flat is back! An exciting kick-off to the season for JS Bloodstock Consultancy where client purchases are running well:
Rogue Millennium was a 35,000gns purchase from Tattersalls for owners Rogues Gallery finished 2nd in the Listed Magnolia Stakes at Kempton and followed that up with a 3rd in the Group 3 Prix Allez France.
Anfaal, bought as a yearling from last year’s Tattersalls Book 3, was the eye-catcher on her debut for owner Sheikh Abdullah Almalek Alsabah and trainer Tom Clover Racing when flashing home for 3rd place at Kempton.
Wonderful Times, purchased from last year’s Tattersalls December Mares Sale, finished a close 4th in the listed Prix Zarkava and looks to have a bright future in front of her for trainer Mario Barratti.
Shot a 10,000gns Horses-In-Training purchase, from the family of dual Group 1 speedster Campanelle, improved her page significantly by winning for owners Moigne Coombe Stud and trainer Jack Jones less than six months after purchase.
Melly’s Flyer – the ultra-consistent Breeze Up purchase won his 5th race for trainer George Scott.
Billy Webster, a 30,000gns purchase from the Tattersalls Somerville Sale, won first time out as a two-year-old at Pontefract for trainer George Scott and looks like a potential Royal Ascot contender.
Shayekh ran well on debut for Alice Haynes to finish a short head in front of the well backed Sir Bolton, unfortunately the stewards deemed for Shayekh to have impeded the runner up and the result was reversed. Shayekh was purchased for £37,000 at the Goffs yearling sale and looks to be an exciting prospect for owner Sheikh Abdullah Almalek Alsabah.
Tattersalls Craven came around quickly with the purchase of three excellent sorts. Two purchases for Rogues Gallery Racing to head into training with Tom Clover – an American-bred colt by More Than Ready out of the Galileo mare Shadow Play and from the family of Hootenanny, for 50,000gns from Tally Ho Stud, and a Kodiac colt knocked down for 145,000gns hailing from the same star family as Brando, Ticker Tape and Reckless Abandon.
And finally a well-admired Sea The Stars colt was purchased on behalf of Michael Blencowe for 165,000gns. He comes from a heavy black type family of Wonderfully, Gustav Klimt and Invincible Spirit. He heads into training with Owen Burrows.
Goffs Breeze Up took place at Doncaster and another purchase was secured for Michael Blencowe – a filly from the first crop of Ten Sovereigns, she clocked a very fast time during the breeze up looks a sharp sort, she heads into training with George Scott.
