One of our most popular syndicates is always the DBS Premier Yearling Sales syndicate and we’re pleased to say this syndicate is now open for next month’s sale. The quality on offer at the August DBS Premier Sale is one of the most consistent traits in the modern bloodstock industry with quality horses such as Shoshoni Wind (£15,000) regularly available. The sale, which takes place late next month, turns out classy Group winning horses year in year out, but does so on a budget that makes buying and owning these quality horses realistic. Kevin’s record from this sale is of course excellent with a selection of his recent buys below highlighting the quality on offer. Hototo (£22,000) Winner of Windsor Castle Stakes at Royal Ascot, the DBS Premier Yearling race, earning over £270,000 Indian Jade (£13,000) Placed at Group 1 level, sold on for over £300,000 Bogart (£32,000) Winner of the DBS Premier Yearling race and Redcar Two-year-old Trophy, earning over £275,000, If any further evidence was needed the likes of Reckless Abandon (£24,000), a two-time Group 1 winner who was sold on for millions to Godolphin shows just what is possible. With all this in mind we are of course excitedly looking forward to seeing what quality Kevin can find for our owners this year. Last year Kevin sourced Fast Act for our owners and the son of Fast Company has given his owners an amazing experience to date, amassing nearly £50,000 in prize money to date whilst taking his owners to some of the biggest race days of ther Summer. He's currently valued at £150,000. Our DBS Premier Yearling Syndicate has not gone on open sale in the past five years, with all shares taken by those reserving a share, or existing owners. We are once again expecting interest to be strong and that this syndicate will be complete ahead of the sales. Plans for this syndicate are now available to view in our available horses area.
When buying young horses with Kevin Ryan owners always know there is the chance of getting a Group class two-year-old, something owners of Fast Act got to enjoy first hand at Goodwood on Tuesday. The two-year-old, yet another successful horse for Kevin for the DBS Premier Sales, lined up for the prestigious Group 3 Molecomb Stakes at Glorious Goodwood off the back of an excellent third in the Super Sprint, and took his form to a new level by finishing runner-up in a race where the course record was broken. Quickly away and always prominent, the progressive two-year-old ran on strongly to the line to just lose out by just half a length in a driving finish under Jamie Spencer, who is pictured with owners before the race with Fast Act's owners and Kevin. The performance added another £10,000 to Fast Act's prize money kitty and also further enhanced the young horse’s value significantly, to well into six figures. With career earnings already approaching £50,000, Fast Act really is doing his owners proud and is yet another find advert for the DBS Premier Sales, a sale at which Kevin has sourced us so many talented horses on a sensible budget. It’s a fair bet Fast Act, pictured below ahead of today's big run, will be seen next at York’s Ebor meeting in August as he continues his tour of the best tracks and meetings in Britain.
Hambleton Racing’s Owners Summer Barbeque is always was one of the social highlights of the year and we're hoping and expecting this year's day, hosted for owners based at Kein Ryan's Hambleton yard, to be a cracker. We're delighted to announce the Owners Barbeque will be held on Sunday, August 31st and Caroline has already booked the sushine! We're really excited about this year's event which will feature the usual blend of fun, horses and entertainment. A pictorial reminder of last year's barbeque is below, let's hope this year's event is a cracker!
Tuesday will be a very exciting day for Fast Act’s owners as their young horse heads to Glorious Goodwood for the Group 3 Molecomb Stakes. An excellent third on his latest start in the Super Sprint at Newbury, Fast Act appears fit and well at home as he gets ready to pit his wits against some of the fastest two-year-olds in the country. Competing in the big races at the big meetings is always exciting, especially at such an atmospheric and spectacular setting as Goodwood. The young horse is proving yet another fantastic advert for the affordable quality Kevin and his team can secure us from the DBS Premier Sales. The son of Fast Company joined us from Doncaster last August and has proved a huge success story already. There should be plenty more exciting big days ahead for him, starting at Glorious Goodwood on Tuesday.
We're delighted to be able to bring you a little more flavour of Supreme Occasion's win from Thirsk last Friday, with some of the images now on line below. It really was a day to remember, and with the daughter of Teofilo coming out of her race fine, it's highly likely she will be out again fairly soon to try and enhance her growing reputation. In the meantime we can enjoy the images below as Supreme Occasion lowers the colours of some pretty illustrious rivals, including Godolphin.
Friday proved a really exciting and successful day for owners of Supreme Occasion as their filly made a winning debut at Thirsk. The daughter of Teofilo was impeccably behaved beforehand and despite showing obvious signs of inexperience she displayed a fine attitude to get on top of her rivals late on and win in taking style under Danny Tudhope. Her win secured not only the first prize money for her owners but also the £10,000 Racing Post Yearling Bonus to ensure it was not only a very enjoyable day, but also a lucrative one as well. The excitement is hopefully just beginning for Supreme Occasion’s owners as their filly is qualified to run in the ultra-valuable Tattersalls Millions races at Newmarket later in the year. We’d like to say a huge well done to all owners involved with Supreme Occasion. We’ll have more pictures and further reaction on line soon.
Fast Act appears incredibly well named as the sharp and speedy son of Fast Company certainly doesn’t hang around in his races. A strong, progressive colt, he gave his owners a superb day to remember at Newbury last weekend when finishing third in the Weatherbys Super Sprint, earning another £24,600 for his owners, to add his Racing Post Yearling Bonus of £10,000 and other prize money. Despite conceding experience to many of the field and being drawn away from the main action Fast Act ran a fine race, showing lots of natural speed under Jamie Spencer before keeping on well to secure third place and a significant portion of the generous prize money. Fast Act received a fine reception from his owners as he unsaddled and Jamie gave owners an interesting and informative post race update. It’s quite possible Fast Act, pictured below after his fine run at Newbury, will step up into Listed or Group Company for his next start. Wherever he goes, Fast Act certainly looks sure to continue to give his owners a memorable first year of ownership.
We're pleased to be able to bring a few pictures from Red Paladin's recent win at Doncaster. The son of Red Clubs has come out of his latest win in good form and is likely to be out and racing again soon to build on his latest strong form. Red Paladin is pictured above making his winning move under Neil Callan, and again below as owners greet him in the paddock. The in-form handicapper is likely to be back out and racing by the end of the month.
It was great to see Red Paladin back to winning ways at Doncaster on Thursday, as the imposing son of Red Clubs scored under Neil Callan. After travelling quite well in behind, Neil had Red Paladin well positioned before making his effort in the final quarter mile. Despite encountering some traffic problems the four-year-old was brought through to lead inside the final furlong, before battling on to repel the well backed runner-up in the 14-strong field. Red Paladin was winning his third race for his owners and his second at Doncaster, following on from last year’s August win on Town Moor. He received a great reception from his delighted owners who then enjoyed an interesting debrief with Neil Callan. It’s great to see Red Paladin back in top form. He’s sure to be out again soon to try and build on this very solid win. We’ll have more news, pictures, and reaction to Paladin’s win on line soon.
We’re delighted to be able to announce details of our next available syndicate. The horse in question is a three-year-old filly called Kiss Of Spring who will be based with David O’Meara. She’s bred in the purple and made a small fortune in the sales ring. We’re fortune to have the chance to offer her on a lease basis to our owners and she’s already very popular with half the places taken in the syndicate before we managed to get her details on line! More details about Kiss Of Spring, who is pictured below, can be found on David’s Available Horses page.
