*From the Goffs Premier Yearling Sale 2022 - the best Sale of the season for 2yo’s. The 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)*
SIRE: HAVANA GREY - the leading first season sire. We have had tremendous success with his progeny this year: Shouldvebeenaring, winner of the Goffs Harry Beeby Premier Yearling Stakes, plus he was the winner of the Listed Ripon Champion 2yo Trophy Stakes - Listed winner Cuban Mistress - Weatherbys Super Sprint winner, Group 3 Prix Eclipse and Listed Windsor Castle Stakes 3rd, Eddie's Boy and Maylandsea, 2nd in the Group 2 Queen Mary at Royal Ascot and 2nd in the Group 3 Cornwallis Stakes.
TRAINER: Richard Fahey, trainer of our Goodwood track record breaking 2yo filly and winner of the GROUP 1 Prix de l'Abbaye; The Platinum Queen.
The Racing Post reported: "Havana Grey continues to carry all before him in the European first-season sire standings, with 30 winners worldwide and nine black-type performers headed by the Listed scorers Cuban Mistress and Lady Hollywood. He also sired Shouldvebeenaring, winner of this year’s Goffs UK Harry Beeby Premier Yearling Stakes." We own Cuban Mistress and Shouldvebeenaring of course: We know how to buy a good Havana Grey!
Tim says: “Was one of our naps of the sale. Comes from the vendor of Native Trail (Mark Dwyer’s Oaks Farm Stables), so we’re in very good company. He’s by our, and everyone’s, favourite first season sire Havana Grey. What’s not to like?”
Here he is after arriving at Musley Bank, looking very relaxed after the rigours of the sale:
