Newmarket - THE £150,000 TATTERSALLS OCTOBER AUCTION STAKES
Purchased at the Tattersalls Ascot Yearling Sale, this colt is by the Group 1 Prix Maurice de Gheest hero and Cheveley Park Stud bred GARSWOOD: http://www.huderie.com/.
Garswood broke his maiden in the Listed Harry Rosebery Stakes and ran a head second to Bungle Inthejungle in the Cornwallis Stakes at two. With Cheveley Park Stud having bought back in to the bay, he took the European Free Handicap and Lennox Stakes at three, the same season in which he finished a creditable third to Moonlight Cloud in the Prix de la Foret. He claimed deserved Group 1 laurels at four when denying Thawaany and Fiesolana to land the Prix Maurice de Gheest.

Training Update: He is a nice, big strong type. Doing one 3 1⁄2 furlong canter up the grass hill, with an occasional second canter every other day. He has cantered upsides and in a bunch and copes well with this. He is fine walking through the stalls - all in preparation for the turf season.
