The first sale of the new year and it was a different sort of order from a new client.
This was for the White Turf next month at the glamorous St Moritz.
I have been on a couple of occasions with two different horses the first in Desert Strike who very nearly made it a fairytale debut trip leading the whole way around only to get tired in the dying strides.
We went with one horse in mind a gelding that we may know a little about…
Rated 93 this 5yo had a slightly off year and has been given a nice break at home. He came to the sale looking fantastic, with a budget of £25,000 I was lacking confidence we were going to get him.
But with a little nudge in the budget we managed to see off David Barron who was with us from £10,000, little does this fell know that his next start will be on a frozen lake racing on the snow!!
