We had just over half a dozen top lots or naps, earmarked on our list, from the 187 horses being sold at the 2022 Goffs Uk (Doncaster) Breeze Ups Sale. It’s a sale that has produced 6 Royal Ascot winners in the last 6 years, including the 2000 Guineas fancy Perfect Power.
Of these half dozen or so horses of particular interests for us, one of them topped the sale, selling for £230,000, two sold for £160,000 and the others sold for £130,000, £125,000, £90,000 respectively. However, sitting alongside such lots, on our list was this particular individual. We struggled to find a single breeze, in the entire sale, to create a better visual impression, during the 2.5f gallop on Doncaster racecourse. He ticked every single box for us; gait, coordination, stride length, head carriage, temperament and overall impression. His time profile was precisely what we were looking for so we feared we may just be flying a little high in hoping to secure him for MPR.
Watch his breeze here:
A big, strong and as it turned out, a reasonably backward sort as a 2yo, we were always just dragging this £52,000 purchase along with us last year, given he has only just sufficiently mature to work with us. As a result, he probably didn’t show the immense promise, on the track, that we’d seen at the Breeze ups and in his pieces of work at home. At the back end of the season 2022 he had the sniffles and we decided to rough him off.
He’s done nothing but thrive over the Winter and when seen up in trip as a 3yo, he’s open to plenty of improvement, for all sorts of reasons, and, were he to rattle up a sequence of wins and become worth a Bonny Penny, we wouldn’t be surprised.
Looks set for a seriously productive 2023, all being well.
Racing Update (26th January): Roll It In Glitter is a strong horse, that was a bit backward as a 2yo. He has now been gelded since the last time he ran and has thrived over the winter. He likes a bit of cut in the ground and is ready to rock n roll come the turf. The Racing Post made him their 'Eyecatcher' from the card at Nottingham after having his third start. They report: "Is one to keep an eye on now with a view towards handicap company, his late progress catching the eye somewhat. He’ll likely stay 1m2f and looks sure to improve." His race entries/declarations, will show on this page.
Here he is, leading the string in his work:
