Purchased at the GOFFS PREMIER YEARLING SALE, this colt is by the late FAST COMPANY. Read more about his sire here, who sadly passed away in March, here:

We’ve enjoyed some fabulous successes with horses purchased from Eddie O’Leary’s Lynn Lodge Stud, over the years, most notably with our Group 2 winning and dual Group 1 placed DONJUAN TRIUMPHANT, who won the Group 1 British Champions Sprint in 2019 and is now standing at stud in France.

Eddie’s eye, very much seems to match our own, and whenever we hook up in the sale’s ring, we appear to hit the bullseye on the racecourse. Purchased from Eddie, in conjunction with ace Bloodstock Agent Bobby O’Ryan, most recently responsible for purchasing the Coventry winner RAJASINGHE and Molecombe winner RUMBLE INTHEJUNGLE, this colt looks every inch a sharp and racy 2yo for 2020. He’s by the sire of the Norfolk Winner BAITHA ALGA, in FAST COMPANY, himself the winner of the Acomb Stakes at York and runner up in the Dewhurst of his 2yo career.

This colt is from a very fast and talented family which includes the Champion filly IMAGINE and over a dozen other Group and black type performers. He heads to the up and coming Middleham trainer Ben Haslam, who sent out 25 winners in 2019 - his best year to date. 

Please see his walk and profile video in the gallery.

Trainer update (14th June): Ben says that this colts biggest asset is his lovely long stride - he has a lovely cruising speed and when he sits him in behind on the gallops, he just wants to go faster - not a bad sign at this stage! Paul Mulrennan has been riding him and he likes him too, saying that he has a great attitude to his work.

He worked with a 4 year old rated 84 on the turf this week and worked just as well as he did, which for an unraced 2 year old is very promising! Ben says that with his long stride he would like to see him debut over 7 furlongs in a months time and he thinks he will do very well on debut.

We are pleased to confirm also, that he has now been named, Lightening Company.
