NAAS - Irish EBF Ballyhane Stakes (Median Auction Race)
Doncaster - Weatherbys Scientific £300,000 2-Y-O Stakes (GBB Race)
We’ve done so, so well with graduates of the Osarus Sales, most notably Group 1 placed Boitron, the multiple winning Lexington Dash and the black type performer Tigre Du Terre, from a very small sample size of purchases (probably only half a dozen).
We’ve found, over the years, that this sale represents, probably, the best value of the yearling season, given the type of horse that is presented and the attendance (or lack of it) of most GB and Irish based agents. We’ve tapped into the Osarus market with a success rate, second to none.
By GUTAIFAN, he qualifies for French Owner Premiums.
Gutaifan wouldn’t be the most fashionable of stallions, but he’s already shown he can produce Group winning juveniles and classic placed prospects too, typified by the RICHARD FAHEY trained FEV ROVER, and this colt represents the best Gutaifan individual that we’ve seen this sales’ season. He’s a real stunner. He’s a fabulous athlete with and exceptional walk. He was our nap of any horse in this particular sale, so it was no surprise to us to see his price tag joint top proceedings. He’s out of a black type, very speedily bred mare, and hails from a really strong and deep pedigree page (see this attached.)
See his walk here:
And furthermore, where better to send him than to the Musley Bank maestro of Malton, Richard Fahey.
He’s a really good-sized colt, and with all the speed on the page - we could see him winging around York or Chester, en route to places like Ascot and Epsom. He’s not just a 2yo, he’s got plenty of size and scope too.
