Purchased at THE sale for 2-year-old winners, the Goffs Premier Yearling Sale, this colt is by the late COMPTON PLACE. A Group 1 winner of the July Cup and the sire of dual G1 Nunthorpe Stakes victor Borderlescott. In addition to Borderlescott, Compton Place sired 12 winners at the group level, including Group 2 Qipco British Champions Sprint winner Deacon Blues, Group 2 Temple Stakes winner Pearl Secret and GII San Clemente Stakes winner Passified.
He's the archetypal Richard Hannon horse that they have done so well with over the decades. They bought and trained SHIFTING POWER, one of the most successful sons of Compton Place. He had a highest OR of 115, won twice at Listed level, was 2nd to KINGMAN in the Irish 2,000 Guineas and also 2nd in the Group 1 Prix Jean Prat, winning over £230k in prize money alone.
You would struggle to find a nicer horse with a nicer walk if you were to view all 10,000 yearlings that are for sale this yearling sales' season. We could harp on about how well Compton Place does as a sire and how well bred this colt is, having 11 black type individuals in his pedigree, but the fact remains, he is a stunning horse with a fabulous walk. His temperament seems bomb proof from the time we spent him at the Sales, which although it is limited, it's usually time enough to ascertain a chink or two in that department. To be frank, the individual sells himself. If you check out his photos and video, we hope you agree.
Not overly fashionably bred but big on substance and athleticism. He looks like a 5 furlong or 6 furlong horse to us, being by a sprinter but if he stretched out to 7f or even a mile in time you could believe it. He's got a lovely stride which ought to cover plenty of ground once galloping.
A fabulous individual who we were determined to purchase, so shares do not come cheap; however they could look cheap once he's hit the racetrack.
Latest Trainer Update: (5th Sept') He has arrived and settled in well at Richard's Herridge yard and is currently being lunged, the first aspect of the pre training programme and all is well.
*Note that the monthly training fees are not payable until March 1st 2018. All costs incurred until then are included in the upfront share payment shown and no further upfront payment is required for the horse throughout his entire racing career.
