*From the Goffs Premier Yearling Sale 2021. 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) All trained by RICHARD HANNON!*

SIRE: Havana Grey, who in his first season as a sire, was in demand at the sale, as The Racing Post reported: https://www.racingpost.com/bloodstock/sales-news/first-crop-sires-in-demand-as-havana-grey-colt-fetches-110000/507470

DAM: Lady Estella (Equiano)

TRAINER: Richard Hannon

Both Richard Hannon Snr and Jnr have made a career out of buying horses from Doncaster Sales (rebranded Goffs Uk) and achieving with them; notably horses like Canford Cliffs, Toormore, Kool Kompany, Happy Romance, Mums Tipple etc.

Strong, racy sorts are precisely what type both Hannon’s have thrived with, and here we have the archetypal Hannon horse. This colt is a ready to run type horse, i.e., he should be one of the earliest runners from the 2022 Hannon 2yo string, such is his strong substance and hardy physique; he looks as tough as old boots. He was the nicest Havana Grey horse in the entire sale, in our humble opinion, and at £40,000, he, very possibly, represents the best value in the whole catalogue, given some Havana Grey progeny sold for considerably more than £40,000.

For decades, Doncaster has been a recipe for success for both the Hannon’s AND ourselves. He’s the perfect type of 2022 2yo, for any first-time owner. He’d come highly recommended.

Walk and Profile Video:

Training update (18th January): He has now moved into Richard Hannon’s Wiltshire base, from pre training, to be prepared for the racecourse proper and we look forward to arranging a stable visit for his owners to see him put through his paces! It’s fair to say, he looks magnificent in the most recent photos we’ve added of him. He’s strong and robust and moves great. He’s blessed with a fantastic temperament too. Given his pedigree and physique, it’d be of little surprise, we’re he to be one of the yard’s earliest runners. He’s got speed on both sides, his father was a black type, early, 2yo and, at this stage, we’d pigeon hole this colt as one of our earliest 2yos to hit the track 2022, all being well. You’d perfectly imagine him being ready to run, just as soon as the turf season begins. He's a really strong sprinting type, with a massive back end and a strong girth, a thick neck and good movement. We think he is ideal for a Richard Hannon 2-year-old! See all these video updates of him in the gallery. His race entries will show on this page - as you can see, he is entered in the £250k Goffs Premier Yearling Stakes, for 2-y-o's in August, at York, during the Ebor meeting.
