Horses for sale

Sherwood Forrester, gelding by NAYEF

The final share in the lightly-raced four-year-old Nayefgelding Sherwood Forrester is offered for sale. Competitively priced shares in other horses are also available upon request.

A well-related individual, Sherwood Forrester is out of the Dubawi mare Panoptic.

She was the winner of a seven-furlong Doncaster maiden when trained by Sir Henry Cecil and is one of nine winners out of the many times Listed-placed Pan Galactic. The extended family features the Grp-3 Cumberland Lodge Stakes winner Tralos and the US Grade-3 winner and Grp-1 placed Polemic.

The sire Nayef is an outstanding source of high-quality middle-distance runners, who has produced multiple Grp-1 winners over the years. He is famed for an excellent winners-to-runners ratio and his progeny continue to progress with time and patience.

With such a fine pedigree and superb good looks, plenty has always been expected of Sherwood Forrester. He took his first steps on a racecourse last season, running five times in total, including when placing in a mile and a quarter Windsor maiden.

Although not mature enough to realise his true potential in 2019, he has done fantastically well over the winter and is going extremely nicely on the gallops this spring. He is sure to leave his previous form behind and stable confidence is high that he can achieve good results.

A couple of unplaced efforts following his Windsor run see Sherwood Forrester start the new season on an extremely appealing mark, and he looks well placed to deliver on his early promise and rack up a sequence of victories in the months ahead.

Please contact Paul on 07464 016144 or Karen on 07555 645349 or Ana on 07733 171112 for more details.

2018 Filly by Kodi Bear

Yearling filly by Kodi Bear out of winning Invincible Spirit mare from prolific black-type family

An April-foaled yearling filly by Kodi Bear out of the winning Invincible Spirit mare Starfly is offered for sale.She is a stunning individual to look at and a very good mover.

This impressive youngster is set to be trained in Devon by Paul George, one of the most promising trainers in the country. Despite having taken out his licence barely 12 months ago, Paul and his team have quickly established themselves as a shrewd and capable outfit.

Starfly was trained by Jeremy Noseda and raced in the famous Highclere silks. She was fifth in an Ascot maiden on her debut before scoring in determined fashion at Windsor over five-furlongs on her second start. Her victims on that occasion included the subsequent Listed winner and Grp-3 placed Miss Lahar.  

Starfly only raced once more and was retired before racing as a three-year-old, but has since gone on to produce six foals. Her potential as a high-class broodmare was underlined when her 2016 Showcasing son Venture auctioned for a jaw-dropping €230,000 at the Tattersalls Ireland September Yearling Sale in 2017, whilst another son Harry Speed is a dual winner at up to seven-furlongs who achieved a peak rating of 78.

As well as an appealing racing and breeding record in her own right, Starfly is also notably well-related. She is a sibling of the French Listed winner Mytographie, who has herself gone on to produce the Listed-winner Mutin. Two further black-type winners can be found under the second dam Mythologie, whilst the next generation of the family features over a dozen stakes performers.

Starfly has been matched on this occasion with the very exciting Kodi Bear, who is expected to be a leading freshman sire in 2020.

A high-class two-year-old who broke his duck in the Listed Winkfield Stakes prior to finishing second in the Grp-1 Dewhurst Stakes, Kodi Bear missed the early part of his three-year-old campaign through injury but returned to the track better than ever. He captured the Listed Midsummer Stakes at Windsor on his return, then finished fourth in the Grp-1 Prix Jean Prat, won the Grp-3 Sovereign Stakes by four and a half lengths and then took the Grp-2 Celebration Stakes by three and a quarter lengths. 

Such efforts ensured that he retired to Rathbarry Stud as the highest rated son of Kodiac to commence stallion duties and he has received the patronage of a large number of exciting mares. His stock auctioned for as much as £90,000 at the recent Goffs UK Premier Yearling Sale and there is great excitement ahead of their emergence on racecourses next season.

This yearling filly is extremely well-related and has the looks and physical make-up to suggest she can develop into a smart and racy performer next year. Don’t miss out at a very affordable price!

2018 filly by Outstrip

Outstrip yearling filly out of Giant’s Causeway mare from exceptional family, trained by Paul George

A yearling filly by Outstrip out of the Giant’s Causeway mare Another Name is offered for sale. She is a very good mover who is blessed with a lovely temperament.

This young filly has an exciting profile and hails from a high-quality and enduring family. She is based in Devon with rising star of the training ranks Paul George, who took out his licence little over a year ago and continues to impress. 

The dam Another Name was very lightly raced prior to commencing breeding duties. She has since produced the 10-time winner Nom de Plume and the flat and hurdles scorer Flat ToThe Max, from just a handful of runners. That brief yet promising summary tells only a fraction of the story, however. 

Another Name is out of the useful 88-rated Because, who was trained by Aidan O’Brien, and by the mighty Giant’s Causeway. The ‘Iron Horse’ is broodmare sire of countless top-level winners such as Gun Runner, Hawkbill, Beauty Parlour, Soft Falling Rain and Planteur.

Because was herself by Sadler’s Wells and out of the exceptional producer Jude. That mares’ seven winning offspring included the Grp-1 Irish 1,000 Guineas heroine Yesterday, the Grp-1 Moyglare Stud Stakes winner and multiple Classic-placed Quarter Moon and the Oaks and Irish Oaks third All My Loving– all of whom were full-sisters to Because. 

Jude was in turn a sibling of the top-class multiple Group-winning mare Last Second, the Grp-3 (then) Doncaster Cup heroine Alleluia, the Irish Oaks third Arrikala and the Grp-1 placed two-year-old Alouette. 

Collectively these mares and their siblings/descendants have gone on to create one of the most decorated families in the stud book. The seemingly endless list of pattern winners found within the first four generations of this pedigree includes the Grp-1 winners Alborada, Albanova, Coronet, Aussie Rules and Diamondsandrubies. Other stellar names to feature on the page include the Derby runner-up Dragon Dancer, the Irish Derby runner-up Midas Touch, the St Leger third Michaelangelo, the Park Hill victrix Alyssa, the Craven scorer Eminent and the Hardwicke winner Thomas Chippendale. 

Such blue-chip breeding resulted in Another Name making her sales ring debut at the Keeneland September Yearling Sale back in 2007, where she realised a cool $525,000. Her year younger Kingmambo sibling Anhar was knocked down to John Ferguson for $950,000 later the same year prior to winning for Godolphin and earning an official rating 100.  

Clearly this pedigree is of exceptional merit and the pairing of Another Name with the exciting Outstrip promises plenty. The first-crop of the former Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf and Champagne Stakes winner have been on the track this season and he has already demonstrated his ability to upgrade his mares. The Listed National Stakes winner Flippa The Strippa is his standout performer thus far, but a plethora of other individual winners have confirmed that he is no one hit wonder. 

There is an awful lot to recommend this filly on paper, and she is priced extremely competitively. Interest is sure to be high, so act fast!

Knightshayes, 4yo filly by Mukhadram

Classy Mukhadram filly trained by Paul George; debutant winner who retains lots of potential

The exciting four-year-old Mukhadram filly Knightshayesis offered for sale. She is available outright at £10,000, though could be divided into quarter shares at a cost of £2,750 plus VAT per share.

Knightshayes is trained by Paul George from his picturesque base in Devon. The young trainer has made a lasting impression in little over two years with a licence, sending out a string of winners towards the end of 2018 and then doubling his annual tally last season.

Knightshayes was in fact one of Paul’s very first winners when making a successful and extremely impressive racecourse debut as a two-year-old in August 2018, on the grass at Lingfield over seven-furlongs.

On that occasion she quickened up stylishly to beat a couple of likely types from the Ralph Beckett and Richard Hannonstables; indeed, the Hannon horse has since proven her mettle in Grade-3 company in the US. Knightshayes continued to show smart form in a handful of runs later that season, including when third in a warm conditions event at Leicester behind the Grp-3 placed Come On Leicester.  

She confirmed that she had trained on from two to three when third again at Leicester in May of last year, before unfortunately pulling a shoe off coming out of the stalls at Newbury on her next start. She pulled a muscle in her back as a result and had to miss the rest of the season, but has since been nurtured back to full health and is being prepared to return to the track in March time. 

Knightshayes is a member of the first crop of the Grp-1 Eclipse Stakes winner Mukhadram. Numerous other winners emerged from the sire’s early runners, including the US Grade-3 winner A Bit Special and the 102-rated Jahbath, whilst he enjoyed Listed success with Romsey last year. The stallion’s progeny are proving themselves to be tough, classy and consistent, and they are improving with age just as Mukhadram did himself.

It is entirely possible that Knightshayes can add herself to Mukhadram’s black-type roll of honour in due course, as she is being prepared to tackle fillies’ Listed events during the 2020 season. 

She has already shown huge amounts of promise, remains very lightly-raced after just seven career starts, and has great potential for the 2020 season. Don’t miss out!

Please contact Paul on 07733 171112 or Karen on 07555 645349 for more details. 

2018 filly by Alhebayeb

Exciting two-year-old filly by Alhebayeb out of winning Dansili mare, trained by Paul George

An exciting unnamed two-year-old filly by Alhebayeb is offered for sale. She is available outright for £3,000 but could also be split into quarter shares at a cost of £795 plus VAT per share.

This attractive filly is trained by Paul George in Devon. In less than two years with a licence Paul has established himself as a thoroughly capable and progressive trainer. 2019 was a highly successful season and 2020 promises to be even better.

A super type, this April-foaled filly is pleasing in all she does so far. She is cantering upsides now and is likely to be an early type once the grass season gets underway.

Her dam Lady Gabrielle was a useful handicapper, whoshowed promise at two and then won twice over a mile and a quarter as a three-year-old. Lady Gabrielle is by the outstanding Dansili – broodmare sire of Expert Eye, Uni, Cliffs of Moher, Time Test, Dream of Dreams et al – and is related to lots of smart animals.

The next dam Zither was a half-sister to the Listed winner Dowager, whilst the following generation of the family features the dual Grp-1 winning Champion Two and Three-year-Old Grand Lodge, who was later a top-class sire.

The filly for sale is by the Grp-2 July Stakes winner Alhebayeb, whose first crop runners emerged onto racecourses in 2018. He has taken no time at all to prove himself a quality young sire, producing almost 50 individual winners at the time of writing, for over €1,000,000 in win and place prize money. His headline performers to date include the Stakes winners Aurelius In Love, Abama and Talk OrListen.

A beautiful individual and athletic mover, this filly has an enormous amount of potential and is one to look forward to.

Please contact Paul on 07733 171112 or Karen on 07555 645349 for more details.

Lethal Blast, 3yo filly by Lethal Force

Lethal Blast ran on three occasions last season, showing ability despite obvious greenness on debut at Windsor and then displaying blistering early speed at Wolverhampton second time out. On that occasion she led for the best part of five furlongs before tiring late on.

She has now earned a rating of 47 and the progression she has made over the winter suggests that she can make a mockery of that mark, before racking up a sequence of wins later in the year.

She is a daughter of the top-class sprinter Lethal Force, who progressed throughout his career and won the Grp-1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes and Grp-1 July Cup as a four-year-old.

He is now responsible as sire for the Grp-2 Richmond Stakes winner and Grp-1 placed Golden Horde, the Grp-2 placed Konchek, the Grp-3 placed pair Mokaatil and Would Be King, plus numerous Listed winners.

Lethal Blast is out of the Exchange Rate mare Having A Blast, who was a $180,000 purchase as a two-year-old before going on to score in conditions company in France. She also ran numerous creditable races in stakes company.

Having A Blast’s only other runner to date is the four-year-oldcolt Blast Off, who has won two races in Australia. The extended family is one of genuine quality, featuring the US Grade-1 winner Mitchell Road and the Grade-3 winner and multiple-times Grade-1 placed Breaking Lucky.

Lethal Blast is a lovely type who has excellent prospects this season and beyond. Don’t miss out on your share!
