*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)*
SIRE: UNFORTUNATELY (Society Rock)
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.
A sharp and racy sort, we’d 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-no doubt they have struck gold with this one too!
Pre-training update (27th September): He has begun his education and is proving to be a very good pupil! He is coming along really well. Here you can see a video of him in the lunge ring and in the gallery, there are 2 videos of him now being ridden, which we added today.
