JS Bloodstock will be attending all 4 days of the Arqana yearling sales in Deauville this year.

Shadn, a 2 year old filly by No Nay Never, wins the Listed Rosebowl Stakes for Al Rabban Racing. Bought by JS Bloodstock as a yearling from Tattersalls Ascot. Shadn has always shown a lot of class at home with Andrew Balding. After a disappointing run at Royal Ascot she has bounced back to beat the colts in a good renewal of this competitive Listed race at Newbury. She also became the first black type winner for JS Bloodstock from our first crop of yearling purchases. Hopefully the first of many!!! Congratulations to all connections....

Dragon Command was a very impressive winner at Hamilton Racecourse. With the cheek pieces applied for the first time he jumped fast from the gates and travelled well behind the speed. He kicked on up the hill and went on to win by over 2 lengths. He looks like a smart prospect and will most likely head on to Glorious Goodwood. Congratulations to the team behind The Black Dragon Partnership, a great team of people who deserved the luck. Dragon Command was bought from Tattersalls Ireland by JS Bloodstock for  31,000 euros.   ...

JS Bloodstock purchases came to the fore in a rare across the world double for owners OTI Racing on Wednesday when Future Score won for the 2nd time in the early hours. Later on that day Southern Rock, recently acquired privately for OTI Racing since winning his maiden, made it the double when winning at the first time of asking for his new owners. Southern Rock is by New Approach and out of a half sister to St Ledger winner Encke, he looks to have stamina in abundance and should have a very successful career ahead of him when he transfers to Australia....

JS Bloodstock's first ever runner at the Royal Meeting was Time To Study who was bought privately for current owner K Sohi and is training with Ian Williams. Time To Study finished 3rd giving his owners a lot to cheer about when he kicked off bend and challenged for the lead. Unfortunately the soft ground found him out towards the end, but he'll be very competitive at the top of the staying ranks this season. Congratulations to all connections....

Shadn, a well bred filly by No Nay Never, won her maiden first time out by over 3 lengths. Bought for Al Rabban racing from Tattersalls Ascot as a yearling she's pleased her trainer Andrew Balding from day 1. She'll head for either the Albany or Queen Mary at Royal Ascot in 2 weeks time.

Successful pinhook for JS Bloodstock and Hetta Stevens at Goffs UK: Hetta and JS Bloodstock sold lot 44 for £54,000 to Matt Coleman of StroudColeman Bloodstock. The colt, by Due Diligence, will now head into training with Roger Charlton. Offered as a yearling at the Doncaster yearling sales, the colt was bought back on behalf of the owners by Bobby O'Ryan. A private deal with the owners outside of the ring by Billy meant the colt went into training with Hetta. The gamble paid off with the colt breezing in the top 40 on the clock and posting some remarkable statistics for his 7.6 metre stride length, the best in the sale. We wish the new owners the best of luck with him in the future....
