THEE NICE COLTS BOUGHT AT TATTERSALLS

The Craven Breeze Up Sale was a bit of a challenge this year. By effectively combining the cream of the Craven sale of years gone by with some of the horses which would previously have been catalogued in the 'lesser' Guineas sale  Tattersalls ensured that a good cross section of potential buyers were on hand for the two days of the sale.
As usual there were horses here which made a crazy amount of money and I must admit to being somewhat perplexed at a few of these high end horses. Suffice to say that I would not have paid that sort of money ( or even close) for either of the sales toppers. Some of the £ 150,000 to £ 200,000 horses were physically outstanding and made a lot more sense. But then what do I know?
What I do believe is that I bought three very nice colts for sensible money for three different clients. The haul was
Hip 32 a scopey attractive colt by Seeking the Gold who is for a client in California
Hip 56 a smashing Singspiel colt who is for Jim Cassiy
Hip 79 a nice strong Johannesburg colt for a client in Switzerland
 
All were bought for sensible money and I hope they will be veru successful for their owners and trainers
