Race entries

Purchased from the Goffs Premier Yearling Sale, where we purchased our Group 1 winner and Champion European 2yo 2013; TOORMORE (£36,000), Group 2 winner VENTURA TORMENTA and dual Group 2 winner KOOL KOMPANY (£40,000) and this seasons Group 1 performer SHOULDVEBEENARING (£40,000) - all trained by Richard!

DANDY MAN has become one of the most prolific sources of naturally speedy & high quality 2yo’s, the likes of our very own black type winner Ventura Diamond, plus Group 1 winners River Boyne, Peniaphobia, La Pelosa, Group 3 winner Happy Romance and Dandalla to name but a few. Already the dam of a 100 rated, listed performer, Wedding Wish, being by the speed biased broodmare sire Acclamation, looks the perfect fit for Dandy Man and we hope we’ve unearthed the perfect candidate for both Royal Ascot and for the ‘Harry’s Half Million’ Sales race, for which, only graduates of this sale, qualify. In 2022 we won the sales race with SHOULDVEBEENARING and this year we finished 2nd with ZIGGY’S CONDOR. Transposed to next year’s race, those performances would net owners £245,000 and £98,000 respectively.  Read the story. here: https://www.thoroughbreddailynews.com/renamed-harrys-half-million-by-goffs-race-will-be-worth-500k-in-2024/

With a Sales’ hammer price of £80,000, this beautiful, and free moving colt looks just the ticket, and could prove to represent exceptional value, this time next year. The Sales race, to which we allude, held on York’s Ebor Meeting card, has been won by Richard Hannon in 5 of the last 8 years, so were better to send such an exciting colt?

Furthermore, this colt qualifies for a €10,000 IRE bonus, should he win a qualifying maiden or novice Stakes race in 2024. You can read more about how it works, here: https://www.itm.ie/Buying/Sales-Incentives/IRE-Incentive

He will qualify for the £100,000 EBF Restricted Conditions race, held at York in October on 2024, should we wish to qualify him and enter him for the race. 

It’d be of no real surprise, were he to look to emulate horses like Kool Kompany, Toormore, Shouldvebeenaring, Ventura Tormenta etc, all purchased by ourselves, in conjunction with ace Bloodstock agents Peter & Ross Doyle, for Richard Hannon to train. 

The sky’s the limit for this fabulously well-bred colt. 

Pedigree update: 'Half sister: Thanks Monica (IRE) (19 f. by Teofilo (IRE)): 2 wins at 3, 2022 and £27,829 and placed 4 times; also 4th Prix Luth Enchantée, L.'

Training update (2nd November): Richard is very pleased with him since he arrived at his Herridge Stables, from pre training. He says that he is a good mover. 

At pre training, in October, they reported: "He is getting on really well and has taken everything in his stride. He is now trotting and hacking up the 3f AWT on Middleham Moor along with spending time in the arena. We are very happy with his progress."
