Berkshire has come out of his race really well, and the plan with him is to head to the Prix Ganay next year. Gifted Girl, who was very unlucky at Salisbury earlier on in the year heads to the Tattersalls December Mare sales. Meritocracy may be heading to St Moritz for their festival next year. We have bought some very nice yearling and we may still have a couple to Syndicate which are a Kheleyf (lot 536, Tattersalls) and a Cape Blanco (lot 224, Doncaster) these horses can also be bought outright should someone wish to. Please contact us for more details if interested.
We have had a number of winners in the last couple of weeks and the stable is in good form:
In France, Elysian Prince took our tally up to eight winners, its not over yet. We head to the Deauville meeting, which starts on the 1st December. Complicit who will run on the 2nd December in a Listed. Bluegrass Blues, Rockaroundtheclock, Dusty Blue, Silverheels, Stormbound and Elysian Prince will also run during that month in conditions races and claimers.
Upstaging, who we have always liked a lot, dissappointed us when running down the field first time out at Kempton. After that, on his last outing he won very nicely at Kempton and has now been put away for next year.
Dutch Art Dealer won two on the bounce and went to the sales, didn't sell, so we will aim for the Lincoln next year.
Rotherwick won very well at Newmarket under Adam Kirby which took his Tally to three this season. Remarkably, he won over 1 mile 1 furlong considering he is by Starspangedbanner, who was a sprinter himself. He has now been put away until next season.
Lyfka has gone up in the weights 18 pounds from her first win at Wolverhampton on the 21st October, and was unlucky not to have won another, she was nearly taken down in her penultimate race at Wolverhampton. She won last time out and she now runs at Kempton on Thursday with a penalty. Its usually quite hard to win with a penalty of 6 pounds but the handicapper is going to put her up another 10 pounds.
Falmouth Harbour is going the right way and will start at Kempton on Wednesday over a mile, will need a mile and a half in time. He is still developing and will hit top gear next year.
Foxy Boris has been working well and will head to Lingfield on wednesday where he should have a good chance.
