Very busy and lots of news!

A lot has happened since our last news post in July… Yearling sales have come and gone and we are right in the middle of foal prep. We have 11 foals in at the moment, all a good few weeks in to their prep and have all taken to it really well. We are selling two in the Fairyhouse November Breeding Stock Sale and nine in the Tattersalls December Foal Sale. We have a nice bunch of foals to offer this year; Colts by Lawman, Ivawood, Sea The Stars, Exceed and Excel, Harzand, Nathaniel, Time Test, Pearl Secret and a couple of lovely fillies by Pearl Secret and Mondialiste. We also have a handful of in-foal mares which we will offer in the December mare sale too; Juno Moneta (IFT: Australia), One Second (IFT: Muhaarar), Rocknahardplace (IFT: Pearl Secret), Private Dancer (IFT: Pearl Secret), Cat Hunter (IFT: Outstrip) and Tibibit (IFT: Brazen Beau).

Lots of runners since July so here a few to name…

Jouska (CABLE BAY x QUIET PROTEST) a filly which we purchased as a foal for Andrew Davis and Gary Doran, made her debut at Newbury. She ran a good race and was given a nice introduction to her job. She then went to win her second start by 2 1/2 lengths at Sandown and finishing off her season by finished a very strong 3rd at Newmarket in the Cornwallis Stakes G3. She looks a very exciting prospect for next year!

Hareem Queen (DARK ANGEL x DULCIAN) a yearling purchase at the 2017 Tattersall Book 1 sale by CreightonSchwartz/SackvilleDonald for John & Jess Dance showed all to win on her third start at Southwell winning by a very impressive 4 1/2 lengths.

Laurens (SIYOUNI x RECAMBE) added to her Group One tally making her now, a Group 1 Winner at 2, 3 and 4 years of age. Laurens and the Karl Burke team made the journey to Deauville for the Prix Rothschild G1 where she triumphed for John & Jess Dance. This was Laurens’ last season racing and has now retired. She boards with us here at Salcey Forest Stud. An 8 time winner, inc, five Group 1’s, one Group 2 and a French Classic Prix de Diane Longines.

Daniel was busy purchasing at the yearling sales the last couple of months. He bought a total of 17 yearlings from GoffsUK,  Tattersalls Ireland and Newmarket. We wish the best of luck to their new connections; Andrew Davis, Gary Doran, John Dance, Karl Burke and Titanium Racing Club.  Hopefully we will see them excelling on the track very soon…
