Tattersalls December Sale 2016
We attended the December Sale with a number of targets the first was to buy a yearling for an owner that shall we say we had a good season for. The catalogue is a funny one as there is a very mixed bunch, horses that missed the earlier sales due to injury or being very backward or simply not good enough. We had a strong list of 6 or 7 but unfortunately it seemed as though everyone else had the same horses it was not to be our day. Stop The Wages was part of a syndicate I was part of and with high hopes off a back of a great run in the Weatherbys Sales Race (4th) and only beaten 3L in a Group 2 on her last start we had high hopes which unfortunately were not met by the market with a high reserve she returned to Manton. Following this however she was sold privately and will next be seen racing in Sweden. Partnering up with Blandford Bloodstock Stu Boman we were looking for a Racing/Breeding prospect and after getting blown out of the water on a couple we bought late on giving 45,000gns for Mimicking a daughter of Invincible Spirt rated 97 from the family of Group 1 winners Mutafaweq and Dimitrova, she has gone to Ireland where she is to be covered by Acclamation.
