    My friend looked at them as yearlings I think - said you can put them in a field for a bit if they don't look great or break them in and send them p2ping or into a bumper yourself.

    My friends weren't expensive so weren't the best page wise.

    Know a few people who have bought Black Sam Bellamy mares cheaply and won a p2p with them before selling them - can think of two that were less than £1,000 off hand that made £30k+ so anything cheap by him going through the ring might draw more attention from folk I know lol

    From the Goffs London sale: why would you pay £900k and have him gelded straight away?

    "Trade proved strong at yesterday’s fourth renewal of the Goffs London Sale in association with QIPCO which took place in glorious sunshine at The Orangery, Kensington Palace. The Classic placed Lockheed was the top lot selling for £900,000 to Australian agent, Chris McAnulty on behalf of Hong Kong based owner, Henry Cheng Kar Shum. The three-year-old son of Exceed and Excel was sold by the China Horse Club and had been in training with William Haggas.

    Chris McAnulty commented: “He will be gelded and given a couple of months here in the UK before being shipped to John Sizer’s yard in Hong Kong. He’s for a long-time owner, Henry Cheng Kar Shum and this is the first time he has purchased at a European sale. I must pay particular thanks to his personal assistant Eric Wong who was instrumental in facilitating the purchase."

    Apologies if this has already been posted by TBA NH Stallion Parade will not be held at the racecourse this year. Great move by the so called 'home' of NH racing.

    Darley to send a few mares to Galileo in 2018 and Coolmore are shuttling a stallion from Oz called "Pride Of Dubai "
    The times they are a changing for sure.

    12 month on line subscription for Irish Field available for 99 Euro with a 50 Euro Red Mills voucher free; must be the best Christmas offer out there.

    Attended the last day of the foal sale today at Tatts: obviously only a limited viewing of the sale but have to say fell in love with the Outstrip foals. Really good types. Almost bought a filly she was so lovely.

    Also read in the December Owner/Breeder magazine that Pentire dead at 25.

    Sad sight today at Tatts as the great Islington led into the ring by a gentleman struggling to hold back the tears and as he stood and watched her sell. She looked absolutely fabulous bless her.

    More speedy mares to send to Galileo.

    Apologies if not quite the right place to post: 14 year old Pivotal mare desperately needs a new home or will be PTS. Had been used as a happy hacker but the rider now has a debilitating disease and can no longer ride her. The mare was with Peter Harris but never raced, we don't know why, had one foal by Bertollini before Harris gave up, who then gave the mare to current owners as happy hacker. She is and has always been completely healthy, all vaccinations are up to date, as is her passport. She's free to a good home. If any one can help and needs any more information , please PM me. Thank you.

    Five of the top six lots went to Ireland, each to a different trainer
