Yesterday was a successful day for Sirecam Graduates. York boasted a fruitful first day, promising a card of exciting races and they didn’t disappoint. First up saw IDAHO win the Group 2 Betway Great Voltigeur Stakes in fine style. The O’Brien trained, son of Galileo went on to beat stable companion HOUSEOFPARLIAMENT by two lengths.
Following the Coolmore charge, IDAHO’s full brother HIGHLAND REEL narrowly missed out on Group 1 glory in the very competitive Juddmonte International. Beaten only a length by the superstar POSTPONED who looks to be set for a visit to the Arc next. Highland Reel is said to be jet setting down under following this great run.
Idaho and Highland Reel’s FULL SISTER is to be filmed by Sirecam ahead of the upcoming Tattersalls Book 1 sale. Following in her brother’s footsteps, she will be consigned by Camas Park Stud, going through the ring as lot 109. Keep an eye out for her video!
Later in the day saw a great run in Kilarney from CAILIN MOR to gain Black Type in a strong field. The Micheal Halford trained filly was bred and sold by Ballylinch Stud in 2013 at the Goffs Orby sale. Cailin Mor is sired by Ballylinch’s sire of the moment, LOPE DE VEGA who just this season alone has progeny winners such as BELARDO, ENDLESS DRAMA, VERY SPECIAL and CONSORT!
Yearling sales filming is also well underway. We had a top price yearling from the Ballylinch consignment at the recent Arqana sale. Lot 41 (pictured below) by Invincible Spirit out of Kiltubber who realised 420,000 Euros when selling to Alex Elliott to be trained by upcoming George Scott.
We will also have the BBAG drafts from top vendors online shortly which include Gestut Fahrhof, Gestut Etzean, Gestut Graditz and Gestut Soderhof.
Don’t forget we will be at the Doncaster Premier Yearling sale next week providing our On Demand service for trainers, agents, consignors and purchasers. This service allows you to get a video produced of your new purchase to send to potential syndicate owners, the new owners or if your lot wasn’t sold, you can use the video as a back up plan to distribute for private sales.
We are now taking bookings for Goffs Orby sale and Tattersalls October sale too..!
