Race entries

The biggest, breakthrough sire of 2018 and 2019 is No Nay Never, there can be no question of that. Champion first crop sire of 2018, he’s the sire of the mighty dual Group 1 winner Ten Sovereigns, Arizona - winner of the Gr.2 Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot, Mystery Power - stylish winner of the Gr.2 Superlative Stakes, Land Force - winner of the Gr.2 Richmond Stakes and Wichita, the recent Group 3 Somerville Tattersalls Stakes, to name but a few of his headline acts!

He is the sire of our Ripon, Hornblower Conditions race winner, Ventura Lightning so we are beginning to fall in love with the sire. He is currently delivering a mammoth Black type horses to runners’ percentage and a colossal rate of winners to runners. In 5 years’ time, No Nay Never could easily be rivalling the mighty Galileo himself, if he continues on his upward climb. Read more about him here: Please note that in 2019 the nomination price for a mare to be covered by No Nay Never was €100,000 and in 2020 the price is set to rise to €175,000 no less. 

Here, we’ve sourced a fantastic yearling colt from the sale that has provided us, previously, with Dee Stakes winner VIREN’S ARMY, Group 3 Prix Du Calvados winner GREAT PAGE and the Group 3 winner and Group 1 placed MARIE’S DIAMOND. It’s a fabulously underrated sale, in our opinion; and it’s proved a very happy hunting ground for us, year in, year out; we’re delighted to buy from Tattersalls Ireland, each and every year!

In the search for this season’s Tom Dascombe yearling, we asked Tom to provide us with a shortlist of horses at this sale, and he offered around half a dozen, but he made it eminently clear to us that lot 52, this No Nay Never colt was his standout individual of the week. He’s a fabulous colt who has a proven top-class sire and a mare who has a proven record too, she’s already produced the 95 rated Westadora. We decided to target this horse, and this horse alone for Tom to train, and having passed through the vetting process, with flying colours, we embarked upon endeavouring to purchase him. After a tense and very busy auction, you can imagine our delight in securing Tom’s nap of the sale and we can’t wait to see him unleashed on Tom’s and Michael Owen’s, Cheshire gallops in the Spring. We even have a group photo of us just after buying him in the gallery!

This fabulous colt, who looks to have it all, already has us dreaming of running at the famous Flat festivals of 2020, the Chester, May meeting, just a possibility and Glorious Goodwood a possibility too, at this stage. Our colt is very much one to train on into his 3yo career too. In fact, we very much see him being a progressive individual, throughout his career, he’s far from a one trick, 2yo pony.

He looks to have an abundance of class, both in terms of his looks and his pedigree. He’s a thoroughly exciting addition to our yearling roster. Tom says “I am delighted to be able to train this outstanding son of No Nay Never. He was my favourite horse in the sale.”

He qualifies for the very valuable Tattersalls Ireland Auction race held at The Curragh during Ireland's premier meeting of the year, Irish Champions weekend. This race carries a superb €300,000 prize money pot. He is PLUS 10 BONUS qualified.

Pedigree Update 2019: Racing Post - "Ten Sovereigns' success in the July Cup was the pinnacle of another big year for No Nay Never, who has again received a sizeable fee increase, having been upped to €175,000 for 2020, just 12 months after his fee was quadrupled to €100,000."

Pedigree Update 2020: Given his sire’s major new nomination fee, this colt looks particularly well bought by Tom Dascombe and our team.

Trainer Update (1st April): As you can see from his new profile picture, he is the most lovely looking colt! As you can probably also see, he still has some growing and filling out to be doing, but this is very much they type of horse we bought, one who will continue to progress. This delay in racing isn't going to change too much with him, as he was always going to be one for the middle of the season and beyond. Tom is pleased with him, saying "he is a lovely big lad and has settled into his routine well"

Here he is having a swim at Manor House Stables:
