The tough, hardy and very classy GUTAIFAN is one of our picks of the first season sires. He was very quick and very precocious as well as a multiple 2yo Group winner over Sprint distances. It looks like, from his youngsters, that he has imparted speedy looks and precocious genes. Read about him here: http://yeomanstown.ie/site/stallions/gutaifan/
It is little surprise that this colt was accepted to "the sale for 2yo winners" namely the Goffs U.K. Premier Yearling sale (formerly Doncaster Premier Yearling Sale). It's where we've purchased horses such as Toormore, Kool Kompany, Lily's Angel, Sandiva and De Bruyne Horse and we feel this fabulous, loose moving colt, sits very favourably alongside those horses, at this stage anyway. There were over 1300 applicants for a place among the 500 lots at this sale, so he's part of a very select band to begin with.
His £50,000 purchase price is very much the proven region for Goffs UK's very best progeny; ADVERTISE £60,000, CANFORD CLIFFS £50,000 are great examples from this sale. This colt very much reminds us of our Mark Johnston 2yo MARIE'S DIAMOND, both physically and genetically, so where better to send him than the Middleham maestro. Whether he's up to winning Group 3's and running in Group 2 and Group 1 races, like his illustrious, year older stable-mate, only time will tell; but it'll be a very exciting journey, finding out!
We were honoured to have been shadowed by The Racing Post during the three days of the sale. Tom, our bloodstock manager picked this colt out as "the one he is most excited about."

He is 'Plus 10 Bonus' registered. Read about the benefits here: https://www.plus10bonus.com and see a video of his walk on this page.
Update (Dec 10th): We have added a new photo and a video of him on cantering on the gallops (second horse-orange top). He looks to be a free moving, easy going sort and has taken everything very well so far, cantering away nicely. He will move over to Mark’s yard in the first week of January where he'll get inducted into Mark’s yearling routine.We will look to have an open morning at Mark’s after he has settled in.
