True Blue Gent
*From the Goffs Premier Yearling Sale - the sale where we purchased our Group 1 winner and Champion European 2yo 2013; TOORMORE (£36,000), Group 2 winner VENTURA TORMENTA, dual Group 2 winner KOOL KOMPANY (£40,000) and dual Gr 1 placed SHOULDVEBEENARING (£40,000)*
Tim says: “By a sire who has already produced a Group 1 winner for MPR, in Ventura Storm, who was also a super close 2nd in the St Leger. This colt is as good a mover as we saw all week. The mare has already produced one black type performer. His £70,000 hammer/purchase price could look value down the line."

Racing update: Surprised us mid-Summer; we’d thought he’d be a racy 5f or 6f 2yo, however he’s much more of a progressive 7f come miler type - he may even stay further. We took the decision to get him handicapped, Sir Mark Prescott style. We think he’s very well treated off an opening mark of 61, and it’s just possible that, up in trip, he could run up a sequence and become a reasonably valuable asset. He’ll be busy over the Winter on the AW and we’re pretty confident he’ll deliver his owners to the winners’ enclosure. His race entries/declarations will show on this page.
