Tylicki Dreaming Of Classic Glory For Fleetfoot Alongside Mentor Bolger

Freddy Tylicki, part-owner of the Jim Bolger-trained Fleetfoot (Ire), who advertised his Classic credentials with a gritty success at Leopardstown on Wednesday, has spoken glowingly about the Teofilo (Ire) colt's claims of major honours this season.  Fleetfoot was placed on all three of his starts at two, bumping into some smart colts each time, including subsequent G1 National S. hero Al Riffa (Fr) (Wootton Bassett {GB}).  But the Shadwell-bred colt made no mistake on his seasonal return, battling best to land the 1m maiden as a 7-4 favourite despite racing...

Tylicki Wins Claim Over Fall That Left Him Paralysed

Former jockey Freddy Tylicki has won his High Court case against Graham Gibbons over the 2016 fall at Kempton that left him partially paralysed. Judge Karen Walden-Smith, in finding Gibbons liable for Tylicki's injuries, said Gibbons had ridden with "a reckless disregard for Mr. Tylicki's safety" when manoeuvring his mount, Madame Butterfly, into the path of Tylicki's, Nellie Deen, causing the fall that left Tylicki with life-changing injuries. "If Mr. Gibbons was not aware of Nellie Deen's presence he clearly should have been," said Walden-Smith. "He was considered to be...

Tattersalls July Ends With 'Genuinely Vibrant' Feel

NEWMARKET, UK--Whatever problems British racing faces, a lack of demand at its bloodstock sales is not one of them. That in itself may only exacerbate the exodus of talent, particularly decent young handicappers, to far-flung nations with lucrative pots on offer, but if sales are your business, as is the case for Tattersalls, then this week can only be described as a highly successful one. From Friday's two sessions of the July Sale, however, the majority of the pricier lots will remain in training in Britain, merely switching from one...

Classic Win Still A Success Story For Sellers

There are good reasons for smaller trainers, owners and breeders to do their equine shopping at the drafts of the major breeding operations at horses-in-training and breeding stock sales. If buying a filly or young broodmare there is the potential for updates from well-managed families, members of which likely remain in their breeders' broodmare bands. For the colts and geldings there is always the hope that a slower-maturing individual may well just have been deemed surplus to requirements and can go on to be a star in another stable over...
