Purchased at the Tattersalls Guineas Breeze Up Sale by Blandford Bloodstock for 27,000 gns. A fine big colt, by second season stallion Mayson who has made a great start to his stallion career as the sire of 5 Stakes winners in 2017. This colt did a good breeze, in a good time, showing a likeable attitude. He is the half brother to multiple winners Miss Van Gogh and Poster Girl. He is a horse for races over 7 Furlongs to 1 Mile this year and has plenty of scope to progress as a 3 year old.
Purchased at the Tattersalls Book 2 by Blandford Bloodstock for 38,000 gns. A gorgeous colt by the tough Mukhadram who Archie worked with at William Haggas’. He represents excellent value considering the strength of the market in Newmarket. Mukhadram was an incredibly tough and consistent racehorse who won the Eclipse (Group 1) at Sandown and was second in the Prince of Wales (Group 1) at Royal Ascot and the Dubai World Cup (Group 1) at Meydan. Like his father, this colt will take plenty of time and come in to his own as a 3 year old.
Purchased at Tattersalls Book 3 with Blandford Bloodstock for 22,000 gns. She is a lovely, scopey filly with powerful hind quarters and looks quick. Her Sire Epaulette was a dual Group One winner in Australlia and has had a good first year with his 2 year olds with 17 individual winners on the board so far.She is a half-sister to the good sprinters Son of Africa and King Robert and looks in the same mould as them.
Purchased at the Goffs UK Premier Yearling Sale by Blandford Bloodstock for £42,000. A good moving Colt by a stallion that Archie is particularly keen on who has had a good start with his first 2 year olds in the USA. Data Link himself was a top class, Grade One winning miler in America and is by the all conquering War Front whose progeny have made such an impact over the last few years in Europe. He is a horse for 1 mile maidens in the second half of the season with the size and scope to train on as a 3yo.
