That’s a wrap for Book 1

Kerry HarrisonOther Headlines

An outstanding year on the track for Chasemore Farm graduates was recognised at Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale this week, as all of our four lots sold for six-figure prices and went to good homes.

The Kingman full-brother to Prestige Stakes winner Boomer out of the Grade 2-placed Singspiel mare Wall Of Sound led the way when sold to Richard Knight for 750,000gns. That’s a new sale record for the stud, beating the 525,000gns paid by Godolphin for unbeaten Gimcrack Stakes winner Noble Style last year.

The Zoustar half-sister to Molecomb Stakes third Boonie out of the unraced Shamardal mare Dice Game went the way of in-form trainer Karl Burke and daughter Kelly for 325,000gns. She was sold in partnership with Seymour Bloodstock for the highest price that Chasemore has achieved for a client, which is extremely gratifying.

The Siyouni colt out of the Listed-placed Shamardal mare Illaunmore was bought by MV Magnier and White Birch Farm for 200,000gns, while the Dutch Art colt out of the No Nay Never mare Wilde Ambition was knocked down to Ed Sackville and David Ward – the owner of the sire’s standout son Starman – for 130,000gns.

Sincere thanks to everyone who bid on the lots, and best of luck to all the winning purchasers and future connections. We look forward to following their progress on the track.

Those great sales are the result of a huge team effort from all at Chasemore Farm, both those who work hands-on with the horses and those behind the scenes, from planning the yearlings’ matings, through foaling them, weaning them, rearing them, feeding them and prepping them, to showing them off at the sales and taking them through the ring, with all the admin that goes along with it.

There was an enthusiastic response to the innovative QR codes we placed on our stable doors and associated material, which when scanned with a mobile phone give access to enhanced information about the lots such as birth weights, growth charts and so on.

Now it’s on to Books 2 and 3 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, where we sold Cheveley Park Stakes heroine Lezoo last year.

We have four lots in Book 2 – a Camelot half-brother to multiple winner Gatecrasher Girl from the family of Kodi Bear (725), a Starspangledbanner full-brother to Prestige Stakes second Breege (1,008), a Showcasing colt out of a Pivotal half-sister to Lezoo (1,115) and an Iffraaj filly out of Listed-placed Galmarley (1,304).

Our Book 3 draft comprises a Ten Sovereigns half-brother to top sprinter The Cheka (1,545), a Masar filly out of a half-sister to The Cheka (1,549), a Gleneagles half-sister to Grade 2-placed Barristan The Bold (1,615), an Aclaim half-sister to smart sprinters Mondammej and Soldierpoy (1,710), a Zoffany filly out of a half-sister to Group 1 runner-up Dutch Connection (1,829) and a Farhh colt out of a full-sister to Group 2 winner Permit (1,867).

We look forward to welcoming you to the Chasemore Farm boxes in the coming days, and if you can’t make it then do check out the QR codes for each lot on the website.
