Doncaster - UNIBET LINCOLN HCAP
Our first visit to the SGA sales arena in San Siro, Italy, saw us come away with our favourite horse of the sale. The sale contains Italy's Premier Bloodstock and we very much hope that we have unearthed a golden nugget from this slightly less than fashionable sale, as we did with Tigre Du Terre and Boitron from the Osarus Sales in France last year and the year before.
He is a wonderful looking individual. He's a great size and has some real substance to him too and is as good a mover as you could wish to see. By the top class racehorse Raven's Pass, who won the Breeders' Cup Classic, as well as the QE II and the St James' Palace stakes, he's putting Group 1 genes into his progeny.

Our dam, by the speed influence Oasis Dream, comes from a Group 1 family and is a half sister to the black type performer Orange Sun. She has already produced the Listed winning filly SUMMER DAYDREAM, who performed to 88 on debut as a 2yo for Keith Dalgleish having cost just €6,500 and followed up with a fantastic performance in the Group 3 Firth of Clyde at the Ayr Western meeting, going on to win the Listed 2 year old trophy.
Training Update: Now three WINS this winter on the AW and seems to have found his metier, following his gelding operation in the Summer. He has a lovely cruising speed and quickens well off it, to put his races to bed. He looks cherry ripe for a step up in grade, to where the prize money starts to get quite serious. He will be entered in the Lincoln handicap and we’ll head for the Lincoln Trial at Wolves. TIMEFORM RATED: 95.
Putting in a career best Timeform racing of 95 on January 6th
