Race entries

This very fast son of the all-conquering sire Mehmas, was an expensive purchase at 130,000gns - he was the fastest breezer ‘ever’ since timings began over the final 3f of the Rowley Mile breeze up course. 

Approximately 150 horses galloped down the final 2.5 furlongs of Newmarket’s Rowley Mile course at the Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up sale, advertising their wares to would be suitors in attendance. The Craven Breeze Ups are the country’s and arguably Europe’s ‘premier’ Breeze ups sale, having produced countless Group 1 winning horses over the years, including our two, quite recent purchases, Group 1 winners DONJUAN TRIUMPHANT (Richard Fahey) and VENTURA STORM (Richard Hannon). It’s a tried and tested venue for ourselves and international buyers alike.

Effectively, the process is a race against the clock to procure a hierarchy of ability, rather like a time trial in cycling or a downhill skiing race. In such events, there is always a WINNER, i.e. the one who completes the course in the fastest time, and we are delighted to report that the son of MEHMAS, was the fastest time on the day, and we are led to believe that 2 of the 2.5 furlongs, over which he was timed, were the fastest, back to back furlongs, since timings began, around 8 years ago, at the Craven Breeze Ups sales.

Here's Robert with an update on him after he arrived in Newmarket:

Racing Update: WINNER of a Class 2 on seasonal return in November, he is a hugely talented sprinter, borderline Group class. He’ll have a busy winter on the AW, having been gelded in the summer in addition to a tidy up of his wind. He could easily, and feasibly, be very well handicapped as a result. Has always been a reasonable money earner and could be about to really step up his game in this regard too. Great opportunity - Saturday horse and Festival horse. Nominated for Dubai this Winter. We’ll either target Dubai or Good Friday Finals’ Day, or just possibly BOTH AND of course the £100,000 added Epsom Dash 2024, held on Derby Day no less (he was only beaten a neck in this year’s renewal) We’ve decided to leave everything on the table. TIMEFORM RATED 115. His race entries/declarations will show on this page.
