We return from the Osarus sale in France with three yearlings.
The team travelled to Bordeaux for the annual Osarus Yearling Sale this week. It's a sale where we bought TIGRE DU TERRE in 2016 and BOITRON last year. These colts both went to RICHARD HANNON and both have appeared in our 'best of' 2 and 3 year old lists from their achievements on the racecourse (as well as Tigre's subsequent achievement of being sold recently to Hong Kong for a 'considerable' sum.)
It's no wonder then, that Tim, Mike and Tom once again put a lot of work into pre sale catalogue studies and inspections at the sales complex. Working alongside Peter and Ross Doyle, (https://www.doyleracing.com/), who we buy our Richard Hannon horses with, the team secured a colt by DABIRSIM: http://www.middlehamparkracing.net/horses/view,yearling-dabirsim-ex-amazing-bounty-colt_222.htm and a filly by ORPEN: http://www.middlehamparkracing.net/horses/view,yearling-orpen-ex-tengeline-filly_221.htm.
We also found the perfect filly for KEITH DALGLEISH to train, in conjunction with bloodstock agent Federico Barberini and she is by OUTSTRIP: http://www.middlehamparkracing.net/horses/view,yearling-outstrip-ex-medalha-milagrosa-filly_223.htm and shares in her start at £875 for 2.5%.
We hope that we have struck lucky again at the sale this year with these three yearlings. When you consider that the unbeaten Boitron is now heading for Group 1 company for his fourth start, you'd like to think that we know value and quality when we see it!
