DABIRSIM X AKHMATOVA
Purchased by George and will be trained at Eve Lodge:
"Dabirsim is a Stallion I rate highly, he’s clearly capable of getting a very good horse. When I saw this colt at the sales, I was drawn to him immediately. He’s very athletic, with a big step and I can see him making into a lovely Summer two year old.
The mare Akhmatova was rated in 90’s and has already produced a 90 rated Sprinter by Sepoy. With speed on both sides, he looks set to start over 5 furlongs, but should stretch out to 7. He also qualifies for the Book 3 Tattersalls race, so the dream is very much alive."
ARDAD X SANDY TIMES
Purchased by Charlie and will be trained at Bedford House
“I was delighted to buy an extremely racy Ardad filly out of the Footstepsinthesand mare Sandy Times at the Tattersalls Ascot yearling sales. The sale has been very lucky to me, as last year we purchased the Lawman colt Deputy, who was 2nd on debut and looks smart. This filly caught my eye for several reasons; firstly both the foals she has produced to date have won, proving that she can throw decent stock. Secondly, she is fully registered for the new GBB bonus scheme, which means that because she is 100% British bred, she qualifies to win an extra £20,000 for every eligible maiden or novice race she wins. Even more importantly she looked to be a lovely, athletic, forward going, two year old type, who hopefully should be ready in good time to prove herself on the track at an early age. Being by Ardad, who was a high class two year old sprinter, you would be disappointed if she didn’t prove to be precocious and ready to take advantage of the generous GBB bonus scheme. For me she is the perfect syndicate horse as she looks sharp and ready to go, and she should provide her shareholders with plenty of early action.”
