Tigre Du Terre sells to Hong Kong, taking our 2018 combined bloodstock sales/race earnings to over £2.5 million.
TIGRE DU TERRE, our 3 year old Le Havre colt has been sold to race in Hong Kong.
Tim, his syndicate manager says: "It was a private deal, but the figure we were offered was astronomical; we would have been foolhardy to turn it down. We would like to thank Richard Hannon and wish his new owners the best of luck."
An amazing outcome for his syndicate who get a substantial return on their original share purchase price, courtesy of Tigre's racecourse performances and subsequent increase in value. From a €55,000 purchase, he had already won more than his purchase price in prize-money from his nine races. Never finishing out of the top 4, he leaves us rated 105 and increases our overall income from bloodstock sales and prize money earned this year to over £2.5million.
Hero of the Anglesey Stakes at The Curragh last weekend, MARIE'S DIAMOND will be offered through the ring at the Goffs Goodwood Sale (see gallery) "A boutique sale held after racing at the Qatar Goodwood Festival. Open to high-end Horses-in-Training and breeding opportunities. Held in the winners enclosure after racing at 6.30pm." https://www.goffsuk.com/sales-results/sales/the-goodwood-sale
After his Group 3 win we decided that this sale would be a suitable platform for him to be marketed to buyers around the world. We will discuss a suitable reserve with his syndicate prior to the sale after racing on Wednesday.
