Without Parole Bolsters Gunthers' Stallion Record

John and Tanya Gunther's Glennwood Farm produces stallions at a rate which must be the envy of some of the larger operations in the business. On its roll of honour the names of ten sires are inscribed, led of course by the Triple Crown winner Justify (Scat Daddy), now ensconced on Coolmore's American roster. In 2021, the international wing of the Gunthers' operation can add a British-based stallion to its list with the return of Without Parole (GB) to his birthplace of Newsells Park Stud. The son of Frankel (GB)...

NEWMARKET, UK—Apparently there's a global pandemic in progress, but that didn't thwart the appetite for bloodstock at Tattersalls on Tuesday as the second session of Book 2 bucked trends in what has been a tricky sales season to date. "Considering what else is going on in the world, we are very lucky this is going ahead," said David Cox of Baroda Stud after selling one of the day's most successful pinhooks. It is a sentiment that has been repeated often in recent weeks as the yearling sales have continued while...

Shastye Filly Heads Strong Book 1 Finale

By Emma Berry & Alayna Cullen NEWMARKET, UK—The final day of Book 1 at Tattersalls received a huge early boost with a new top lot of 2.8-million gns within the first hour, but by early afternoon that had been surpassed when the Galileo (Ire) filly widely expected to steal the show did just that. Coronavirus restrictions on the number of people in the sales ring have robbed Tattersalls of some of its customary theatrical feel but, with the leading players assembled in the open air on opposite sides of the...

'Beautiful, Elegant' Daughter Of Shastye Set For Book 1

When one has a filly like the Galileo (Ire) daughter of Shastye (Ire) (Danehill), Julian Dollar admits, "you don't look at those sorts of horses particularly objectively." And to be fair, that assessment likely doesn't just apply to the Newsells Park Stud general manager. Such a force has Shastye been in the Tattersalls October Book 1 ring and on the racecourse over the past 10 years that plenty of shoppers are likely to get a bit starry-eyed. Lot 436 at next week's renewal of Book 1 is the sixth filly...

The Importance Of Mentors: Julian Dollar

Who has been the biggest inspiration in your career? JD: As a child growing up, I never had any interest in running a stud farm, but I've always loved riding horses, especially hunting and cross country.  My first inspiration was my Grandfather, Gar Barker. He was a legendary figure on the hunting field and a wonderful horseman. He only rode Thoroughbreds and they'd all be beautifully behaved. He'd ride them on the end of the buckle and with the lightest of touches. I always wanted to ride like that. Later...
