We are delighted to be in Newmarket for July week and starting off with the purchase of two mares at the Tattersalls July Sale. Early in the session we purchased Milford Sound (Lot 85) from Juddmonte Farms for clients Iain and Mary Hebbard. The daughter of Barathea has already produced the Listed Derby Trial Stakes runner-up Carntop (Dansili) and she is in foal to Camacho, while she is also herself a half-sister to Rail Link. We felt that she was exceptional value at 10,000gns because of her proven record of producing, her own back family and the fact that she was cheaper than the cover she is carrying. At little while later we bought Isobel Archer (Lot 135) from the Godolphin draft on spec for 23,000gns. She is a winning full-sister to Gr.1 winner and sire Naaqoos (Oasis Dream) and has a sexy cover to Coolmore’s first season sire Saxon Warrior (Deep Impact).
