Oran Flyer keeps up good recent run of winners bought or sold
by Boardsmill Stud
The victory of Oran Flyer in todays 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 Dancers 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.

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.
