Simon Mapletoft and Great British Racing, shadowed Tim and our team at Tattersalls.
From our founder, Tim Palin: "Well, that’s the domestic yearling sales’ season completed. We’ve sourced a fabulous bunch of juveniles, which would rival any year’s crop. We’ve managed to secure some outstanding individuals, first and foremost, several with very strong pedigrees indeed, where we’ve had to dig quite deep into our pockets, to be successful in the auction ring. They’re all now having their pre training, at various spots around the country, Lambourn, Newmarket and Middleham for example, as they have now been being broken in.
Some are already with their trainers and others will be delivered to them just into the New Year. It’s an exciting time, given, at this stage, they could all be world-beaters!
We have an outstanding crop to go to war with in 2022 and beyond as I’ve said, and the weeks and weeks of hard work by our Bloodstock team will hopefully be rewarded by our fabulous owners; continued support and ultimately on the track, in due course.
We’ve a grand total of 40 young, new additions, across both our Flat and National Hunt teams, at MPR, that have yet to race in the light blue and orange silks, so it’s a fascinatingly exciting time, waiting, in eager anticipation, for them to begin their burgeoning careers. Thrilling times are ahead for us all, that’s for sure!" Tim.
We were delighted that Great British Racing asked to follow us at the prestigios Tattersalls 'Book' Sales. Simon Mapletoft speaks to Tim here:
