Space Legend the Latest Addition to Wathnan Racing Team

Space Legend joins the Wathnan team |

Wathnan Racing's exciting team of horses for Royal Ascot has been bolstered further by the acquisition of the smart three-year-old prospect Space Legend (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire}) from Hong Kong-based owner Bon Ho.

Blandford Bloodstock's Richard Brown, who has been charged with assembling some enticing prospects for the Emir of Qatar's burgeoning racing operation, confirmed the purchase on Wednesday. 

He said, “Space Legend is a lovely, progressive type, typical of the best by his sire. We're really looking forward to seeing how he develops in the months and seasons ahead.”

The colt, who was the facile winner of a Leicester maiden in April before being narrowly touched off when second in the Listed Cocked Hat S. at Goodwood on May 25, is being aimed at the G2 King Edward VII S. by his trainer William Haggas. Bred by the Tsui family's Sunderland Holdings, Space Legend was bought as a yearling for Bon Ho for 150,000gns at Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale by Mark McStay of Avenue Bloodstock.
