STABLE VISIT TO VIEW: If you are interested in taking a share in this colt, we will be visiting Heath House to see him on the morning of SATURDAY MARCH 9th. If you would like to attend, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Training update (25th February): Jeremy Brummitt, our bloodstock agent who sourced him and was with us when we bought him came in to see him and was very impressed with the progress that he has been making. Sir Mark says: "He is a gentleman to deal with and has taken all of his education well. He canters along nicely and physically he is filling out and muscling up. He's got a good daisy cutting action and a kind nature. Is good natured in the stable and all in all, he is coming along well. You'd be very surprised if he didn't have a degree of ability, he's a very nice 2 year old." His pedigree says 7f and above, but at the moment we're hoping he will be ready from June onwards, in line with the time the future staying prospects can start to be readied. You can watch his video updates below....
A rise in his covering fee from an initial €20,000 to a current €75,000 is a testament to the on the track prowess of NEW BAY's progeny; namely Saffron Beach, Shuwari, Bay Bridge & Bayside Boy at top class level - so effectively we’re accessing for less than his current covering fee, a great moving, well put together yearling colt out of a black type mare for, dare we suggest, ‘a mere’ 50,000gns. You can make a case for him representing exceptional value, given he was conceived off a €20,000 cover to New Bay in 2021.
Ace Bloodstock agent Jeremy Brummitt sourced this fabulous colt for us, quoting some sensational stats for the New Bay cross with Acclamation and Acclamation descendant mares - he knows his pedigrees inside out and rates this as an exceptional cross, combined with a fabulous individual. Michael Bell, who trains the 3yo half-brother ALL THAT GLITTERS says his horse “isn’t a patch on this horse.” Mark Johnston, who trains the 2yo from the black type mare LUIRE, was the underbidder on this colt. The pedigree, the provenances just seem to align themselves perfectly well for this colt, in our humble opinion.

We have on our hands, a potentially high-quality colt and given he’s bred to stay middle distances and beyond, we think a perfect fit for him would be the Heath House, Newmarket maestro, Sir Mark Prescott. He’s a genius at plotting how to have horse rattle up sequences and achieve at really high levels too. As a rule of thumb, such horses can have their asset value soar to really lofty heights post their racecourse successes - we’ve sold Heath House horses purchased for 40,000gns for 72,000gns, €80,000 for £175,000 and recently, a syndicate of owners declined an offer of £200,000 for a horse that was originally purchased for €22,000. There’s the possibility, with Sir Mark at the helm, of making some kind of economic sense out of racehorse involvement, aside from all the fun of the fair that being a racehorse owner can afford.
Here he is in the lunge ring:
We think this colt will build to a crescendo of his career as a 3yo in 2025, hopefully taking us to many of the big summer festivals, where prize money values seem to be so impressive these days.
A hugely exciting colt with a big future ahead, we’d like to believe, he’s bred to be good, on both sides of his pedigree.
Dark Angel mares are starting to become more and more popular and Jeremy Brummitt’s long term prophecy that he’ll be a high class horse, remains the adage. We’ve seen nothing to contradict the assertion, says Sir Mark.
