We are delighted to announce the private purchase from Brickfield Farm, of this beautiful, chesnut colt, by the Juddmonte stallion BATED BREATH. He was unsold at the recent Guineas Breeze Ups Sale and was sent to Nigel Tinkler to prep for his racing career. Nigel likes him and says; “he goes well, he’ll go to Thirsk on Monday for some preparatory racecourse stalls’ work, gallop down the track and he should be ready to run, pretty much thereafter”.
He’s already named HEARITFORTHEBOYS and he qualifies for Band C & D races from his yearling purchase price of €26,000.

The plan is to race him, win a race or two and sell him on, if at all possible, at a profit. We’d imagine he’d be with us no longer than between now and October - possibly shorter were a great offer to come in, and possibly a bit longer if we felt it would enhance his value, to race on a little, beyond then. We’ll very much have pounds, shillings and pence in mind throughout his career, however we’ll also have one eye on the € too, given he qualifies for the Irish €10,000 incentive bonus, should he win an appropriate maiden or novice, at a track which supports the initiative (unfortunately some GB tracks are proving overly parochial about the incentive and are not alliancing themselves with the scheme, which is very disappointing, given it’s an owner friendly move.)
We’re looking forward to seeing this colt hit the track pretty soon and hopefully we’ll be welcoming him to the winners’ enclosure too. His race entries/declarations, will show on this page.
