Godolphin Duo Light Up Leicester


Trainer Charlie Appleby | Bronwen Healy

Observations on the European Racing Scene turns the spotlight on the best European races of the day, highlighting well-pedigreed horses early in their careers, horses of note returning to action and young runners that achieved notable results in the sales ring. Today's Observations features a high-profile Godolphin auction purchase.

5.45 Leicester, Novice, £8,000, 2yo, 7f (AWT)
PRIVATE SIGNAL (GB) (Sea the Stars {Ire}), a 680,000gns purchase by Godolphin at the Tattersalls October Book 1 Sale, bids to build on a narrow second at Doncaster earlier this month. Out of a half-sister to the G1 1000 Guineas, G1 Nassau S. and G1 Matron S. heroine Legatissimo (Ire) (Danehill Dancer {Ire}) from the family of Fame and Glory (GB), he is one of two from the Charlie Appleby stable alongside the unraced Stormy Ocean (Frankel {GB}), a 480,000gns Tattersalls October Yearling Sale Book 1 graduate whose dam is a half to Eminent (Ire) (Frankel {GB}).
