Oran Flyer keeps up good recent run of winners bought or sold by Boardsmill Stud

The victory of Oran Flyer in today’s bumper at Gowran Park continued the fine recent run of winners that were bought or sold by Boardsmill Stud. Oran Flyer was bought as a weanling by Boardsmill Stud as agent for just €5,800 at Tattersalls Janaury Sale in 2002. A cause for double celebration is the fact that Oran Flyer is out of Mill Dancer, who as the name suggests was bred by Boardsmill Stud. Mill Dancer’s dam Theatral is still breeding at Boardsmill and is currently in foal to resident sire ‘Court Cave’.

Other recent winners include the impressive Punchestown Maiden Hurdle winner ‘Well Mounted’ trained by Arthur Moore. Well Mounted, bred by Eileen Countess of Mountcharles was sold by Boardsmill Stud as a foal at Tattersalls November National Hunt Sale in 2001 for IR17,500gns.

Nightfly, trained by Mark Pitman was an emphatic bumper winner of his only start to date at Southwell on 30th January and looks a real nice prospect for the future. Nightfly was bought by Boardsmill Stud as agent as a foal for just IR6,000gns and then re-sold by Boardsmill Stud to Mark Pitman at the 2004 Derby Sale for €32,000. Keep an eye on our ‘Horses For Sale’ page with details of our draft for this year’s Derby Sale which takes place on 29th and 30th June.

Finally, Rock On Tom was the impressive winner of a Punchestown Bumper on January 14th. Trained by Noel Meade, Rock On Tom was bred by Boardsmill Stud and sold at the 2003 Derby Sale for €40,000. Out of the winning Jurado mare ‘Juresse’, Rock On Tom comes from the most illustrious of families. Juresse is a half sister to Charlie Hall Chase winner ‘Strath Royal’ and also comes from the immediate family of top class chasers Amberleigh House and Aritifice. Rock On Tom is Juresse’s first foal, keep an eye out for his 4 year old brother by Rudimentary who will be appearing at a sales ring near you shortly!!
