Mammas Girl Annexes HQ's Nell Gwyn In Taking Fashion

The 16-1 chance had previously debuted with an impressive two-length triumph over course and distance in October and was immediately quoted at odds as low as 6-1 for the Rowley Mile Classic...

Leading trainer Richard Hannon has nominated the juveniles who have been impressing him the most at home on the gallops and described himself as a massive fan of first-season sire Blue Point (Ire).  So impressed is Hannon by Godolphin's freshman sire, whose first runner--Action Point (Ire)--was a winner, he has predicted that he will struggle to get near the progeny of Blue Point at the sales in the coming years.  Alongside the leading bloodstock agents Peter and Ross Doyle, Hannon has amassed a team of over 100 two-year-olds to go...

New Dawn In The Desert Illuminates Record Trade

NEWMARKET, UK--Everyone in this business understands that complacency is prohibited with Thoroughbreds. But it must be said that a year which began with the global economy clinging by its fingertips to the development of vaccines, and this particular industry chilled by the consecutive loss of two of the greatest investors in its history, has entered autumn with heartening buoyancy.
