“He Was Always A Class Horse” – Roger O'Callaghan On £500,000 Harry Angel Colt At Goffs UK Breeze-Up

DONCASTER, UK-It had felt like an apt morning to start a breeze-up sale: find a sunny nook away from the north wind, and it was a glorious spring day; find yourself exposed, and you felt a bitter parting shot of winter. That kind of polarity is pretty standard in this sector, but a stunning Goffs UK Breeze-Up Sale --headlined by a £500,000 Harry Angel colt from Tally Ho who became the most expensive Flat horse ever sold in this ring--allowed many vendors to bask, almost dazed, in their own personal...

Sent off at 9-2, last year's G3 Cornwallis S. winner was quicker than Ballydoyle's 6-5 favourite New York City (Ire) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}) at every step and gave generously for Leigh Roche to beat that Listed Committed S. scorer by three lengths. The returning G3 Anglesey S. winner Beauty Inspire (Ire) (Mehmas {Ire})...

Hot Stuff as Somerville Sale Lands Running

NEWMARKET, UK—In the words of one of many satisfied consignors here on Tuesday, this is a sale "going places". That was literally the case, of course, when the embryonic version first staged at Ascot only in 2017 was last year transferred to Park Paddocks as an expedient of the pandemic. But it's an ill wind that blows no good, and the market adapted so healthily to its sanctuary that it was decided to keep it there. Rebranded as the Somerville Yearling Sale, and deriving many logistical and psychological benefits from...
