Sales season is here!
We were sad to see Menalippe, our two time winning filly leave the yard, particularly after her impressive run behind Quinault at Brighton, but we wish her all the best for the future and will follow her with interest. She was an incredibly well natured filly, and will forever be remembered by all of her owners. She gave us all an incredible journey with two wins and multiple placings, and she will always be one of Hasmonean Racing’s favourites.
We recently showcased two debutants at Kempton, and both look exciting prospects going forward. Our Farhh colt, Maith A Farhh ran well until fading late on. He will come on significantly for the run, and as his breeding would suggest, he will be seen to better effect over further as a three year old.
Similar comments can made regarding our Waldgeist filly, Billiegee. However, the way she finished at Kempton would suggest we may see more of her ability this year than expected. You couldn’t help but be blown away by her breathtaking finish and it didn’t go unnoticed as we have turned down large offers for her since. Thankfully, her owners have chosen to continue her story and she could be very exciting going forward. She may also line up at Wolverhampton on Friday.
Our well bred filly, Chartwell’s Lady will be making her racecourse debut in the coming weeks, and this daughter of Churchill is another who falls into the ‘could be anything’ bracket. Closely related to the three time Group One winning Blue Rose Cen, we hope our filly has inherited some of her ability. Once again, we expect to see her in better light as a three year old, but nonetheless it will be exciting to see what she can do this season as a 2-year old.
We will hope to be active at the upcoming yearling Somerville and Tattersalls sales, and could add at least a couple of horses to our Hasmonean family. We will target value as always, but not at the expense of success. We will use our connections within the industry to give ourselves the best chance of more winners, and hope to acquire horses with exciting pedigrees with a variance of expected distance expectations. We will of course consider residual value, and hope to give existing and new owners various options of interest for next season.
