Two exceptional 3yo national hunt stores were purchased from the Tattersalls Derby sale last week in Ireland. One bought by George Bewley is a beautiful looking grey gelding by Arcadio (stable name Archie) and the second an equally stunning bay gelding by Scorpion (stable name Sting) bought by myself. Both geldings are 16.2 hands plus, great walkers and cover the ground effortlessly. Currently being broken in by Jonathon both these geldings are strong forward types and will be prepared for bumper runs at the turn of the year.
On looks alone these two youngsters stand out and with a breeding pedigree to match are real prospects for early next year.
A huge amount of desk top research work on bloodlines and pedigrees goes into these sales visits and to come home with two of our main targets in the bag brings a lot of satisfaction, however as always this is just the start albeit a very good one!
