Colt, 2 yrs
Sire: Golden Horn (GB)
Dam: Kitty Wells (GB)
Trainer: David Simcock
Exciting! We had not expected to be buying any more yearlings this year, but it is often the case that Tattersalls December yearling sales throws up some tremendous opportunities. Unlucky Arc runner-up Sea Of Class was sourced from this sale, which often contains horses that had been unable to make it to Books One and Two. This year’s sale provided just such an opportunity.
You will be aware that we have usually selected the most promising athletes from less fashionable sites, but now we have a great prospect by a Derby winning horse of the year in Golden Horn. This is exceptional value, having been bought for less than the cost of the stallion fee. The dam’s first two foals were both rated above 80. The dam herself is a full sister to St Leger winner Milan and Kahara who, when mated to this yearling’s grandsire, produced German Guineas winner Karpino. So there is clearly top class speed, as well as stamina in the pedigree.
He is a big powerful yearling, who will make an imposing three years old and beyond.
