If you are interested in taking a share in this colt and would like to see him, you are welcome to join us and our owners at Karl's yard, on the morning of SATURDAY March 11th. To book your place/s, please email sarah@middlehamparkracing.net. *Please note that shares could sell out before then.


*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)*


DAM: VULNICURA (Frozen Power)

TRAINER: Karl Burke.

Tim says: “A hardy, tough looking colt by a no nonsense stallion that Karl trained. The mare has already produced a black type performer so this could be her second.”

See his profile video, here:

Here he is at the pre training yard, looking incredibly relaxed after the rigours of the Goffs sales complex:

Likely to be a first half of the season sort with very much one eye on Royal Ascot, where we managed to have a number of 2yo runners this year including the Group 2 Queen Mary 2nd (Maylandsea) and the Windsor Castle 3rd (Eddie's Boy.)

He qualifies for the £300,000 Goffs UK Harry Beeby Premier Yearling Stakes; a race that we won this year with our £40,000 purchase Shouldvebeenaring. He earned £122,000 in winning that day, at York’s Ebor Festival and his owners won a £47,000 voucher to spend on a ‘free’ horse at this year’s Sale too. 

This colt also qualifies for races like the £250,000 Weatherby’s Super Sprint, held at Newbury in July, a race we won this season with our 45,000gns yearling purchase Eddie’s Boy. Furthermore, they will qualify for Redcar’s £250,000 2yo Trophy, which we’ve won in the past with Ventura Mist, and the £300,000 Weatherby’s Insurance Sales race, held at Doncaster in September could easily be on this horse’s agenda too.

Purchased for a hammer price of £42,000, this sharp and racy sort, we would hope to debut in April or May, with Royal Ascot in mind, hopefully. Then, all being well, on to Sales races and Group races. However, failing that, we’d go on to look at nursery handicaps at, hopefully, the main, summer festivals, where our silks are regularly seen.

We’ve a proven track record of delivering, year in, year out, and we’d hope a fair number of our Doncaster Goffs UK purchases can deliver on the highest stage, again in 2023.

The same MPR buying team, who bought last year's yearlings have done a great job, with 18 pieces of 2yo black type earned this season and no doubt they have struck gold with this one too!

RACE ENTRY:  He is entered in the £300k Goffs UK Harry Beeby Premier Yearling Stakes at York. A race we won in 2022 with Shouldvebeenaring!

Training update (18th January): Karl reports that he's progressing well at home. As you can see from the videos, he's fresh and well. He's taken the breaking in process in his stride and is now cantering for 3 furlongs on a daily basis on the gallops in Middleham. He'll continue in this regime until the end of January at which point Karl decides which of the 2yo's he's going to kick on with and get ready for the early 5f 2yo races and which are the later maturing types. 

He's bred to be an early sprinting type (his half-brother Dig Two was 2nd in the Windsor Castle at Royal Ascot as a 2yo) and so we've given him an entry in the Early Closing Goffs Uk Sales Race over 6f at York in August. (We won the race in 2022 with Shouldvebeenaring) See him in the latest videos below, cruising along nicely and showing a good attitude to his daily regime.
