UPDATES

So sorry I have not been  updating this, but have been very busy at the sales. Two great winners to mention and also an updfate on the sales
DEVANT the 2yo filly I bought for Team Valor in the summer came out and won her  Group 3 in good style in the Prix Miesque at Maisons Laffitte. SHe did it well and I would not be surprised if she was able to step up in grade next year. I think she will stay the mile and that will give her lots of opportunities. She was due to be sold , as part of a new direction for Team Valor, but failed to get sold. I believe she stays in France and I will be following her with interest next year.,
CAPLA TEMPTRESS :  After a quiet 2018 in which she had failed to win a Graded Stakes race ( although she had been a good 2nd in the Lake Placid GR 2) she came good yesterday afternoon at Gulfstream Park when landing the GR 3 My Charmer STakes with a minimum of fuss. She did it  really nicely under an excellent ride from Joel Rosario who really showed why he is such a good jockey. As far as I know she stays in training next year and should add to her wins as a 4yo
SALES
Came back from the December Sales at Arqana and Tattersalls quite exhausted, . It was hard work but we managed to buy a total of seven horses for Deron Pearson and DP Racing. pick of the bunch is probably RAVEN'S LADY a GR 2 winner who we managed to acquire privately after she had failed to meet her reserve in the ring. ANother filly I like a lot is ALL STAR CAST a 2yo who looked very useful before an injury curtailed her season. Back sound now she should be competeitive and excel in the USA
