We have been incredibly busy at the sales recently and have bought some very exciting prospects which I'm really looking forward to get going with.
Myself, Jonjo Jr and AJ, with the help of our Bloodstock expert Matt Coleman, have spent weeks researching the pedigrees, before heading to the sales a few days in advance where we viewed and assessed all the horses.
I am thrilled to have been the successful bidder on all of the horses below. All, bar one of them, are unbroken and ready to be named by their new owners ahead of their racecourse debut later this season.
If you would like to get involved, whether it be Sole, Partnership or Corporate Ownership, and have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Jacqui and I on;

Also Known As (IRE)
Presenting (GB) ex Jay Lo (IRE)
A big, strong, scopey, chasing type who is a beautiful mover and very light on his feet for a big horse from proven producers Charlie and Francesca Poste.

Furthermore Jonjo Jnr had ridden Also Known As in a piece of work before he made his debut and was impressed by the feel he gave him.

He is by Presenting out of a black type mare who is a half-sister to 141-rated 3-mile chaser Richard’s Sundance, so Also Known As has all the ingredients to make an exciting staying chaser.
