A busy spell off the track has continued, as following hot on the heels of four days at GoffsUK Doncaster sales last week, Tattersalls Cheltenham hosted their May sales last Thursday.
We have been focusing on assembling a fine team of young horses and were delighted to add to that further, coming away with three new acquisitions.
DOUGLAS TALKING is a 16.3 hands high five year old by Dylan Thomas. I absolutely loved him when watching his bumper win before the sale; there is a link to it below and he travels sweetly before going wide then facing a wall of horses to pass. He reminds me of Ahoy Senor, both physically and mentally and he is the horse that we went to buy. He had three clean vettings and after some spirited bidding, we were successful. I have high hopes for him and am looking forward to the autumn with him to see if he can emulate Ahoy Senor.

ROWDY RUSTLER is a six year old son of Getaway and he posted an admirable performance when winning his second start in points by ten lengths. A good mover he could be ideal for good and good to soft ground and he will run over hurdles in the autumn then look to go novice chasing next season. He is the genuine type to continue to improve and looks excellent value at £20,000. He is pictured at the sales. He is For Sale

Tough, tenacious, and talented, SPRING PARK LADY looks like the type of mare that everybody would love to own. Prominent throughout on her pointing debut she repelled all challengers to win by two lengths and the form of that race is very solid. At six years old she is ready to go hurdling in the autumn, and she looks a rock solid type for mares races as well as against the boys. She is by Milan out of a Beneficial mare, from the family of Seven Is My Number and with size and scope she will make a cracking broodmare in time. She was bought for £25,000 and is highly recommended. She is For Sale
