Purchased at THE sale for 2-year-old winners, the Goffs Premier Yearling Sale, this colt is 'Plus 10' bonus registered and is by CAMACHO, who stands at the renowned Yeomanstown Stud. Described as "the proven source of stakes winning sprinters and two year old's" you can read about his sire here: http://yeomanstown.ie/site/stallions/camacho/ Incredibly, the very week of the sale, Camacho had FIVE 2 year old winners in 24 hours! https://www.racingpost.com/bloodstock/bloodstock-world/fabulous-five-timer-moves-camacho-closer-to-the-upper-echelons/299123
This sale is our favourite yearling sale of the sale's season, given the success we have had from there in the past; namely Lily's Angel, Toormore, Sandiva, Kool Kompany and De Bruyne Horse to name but a few. We simply adore the sort of horse that Doncaster offer; they seem to suit our palate and our trainers. We loved this Camacho colt when we saw him at Manister Stud's barn at the Goffs sales complex. It's fair to say that he was as nice an individual as we saw all week; he ticked every physical box we could wish to see. He the most attractive and loose moving colt and he has a fabulous temperament to boot. A very typical son of Camacho in that he is big and strong but carries all of his muscle so effortlessly with a fluid and purposeful walk, he looks every inch a racehorse to us.
There are few trainers out there who boast a 100% winners to runners’ record when pairing a sire and a trainer but Camacho and Richard Fahey are just that. He has trained 5 of his progeny and every one has been on the score sheet, including our own Jamesway.
His pedigree is fabulous too, he is by a stallion who produces very talented, tough, hardy 2yo runners and winners aplenty. We love Camacho and have had plenty of success with his progeny. However, with a pedigree that contains Interval, Continent and Cheyenne Dream there is every reason to believe that he will progress through his 3yo career too; he has the size and substance to back that up. There is plenty of speed in his genes, for instance his dam was by the very quick Amadeus Wolf so we imagine this colt will be very adept at distances around 6f, probably starting off at 5f and possibly staying 7f or perhaps a mile in time.
He's a fabulous individual who we hope can make up into a high class 2yo for 2018.
Trainer Update: (17th July) After his growth spurt and his time on the treadmill, he is now back cantering and will be ready to go and do a piece of work on the grass gallops in a couple of weeks. He has been showing plenty before he grew and Richard says "the big horse is looking great now.” The fact that he’s now been referred to as a big horse probably just indicates just how much he has indeed grown! The man who looks after the horses on the treadmill where he has spent some time building muscle said about him “ He’s one of the nicest horses we’ve ever had on the treadmill.” We anticipate he should be ready for entries to make his debut in the first half of August.
Pedigree Update: CAMACHO has had his first Group 1 and Classic winner, with Teppal, winning the 2018 French 1,000 Guineas.
