Sales & Race Results Round Up from the Boardsmill
The most impressive winner of yesterdays Thurles card was
the winner of the maiden hurdle King Troy.
Sold by Boardsmill Stud as a 3 year old at Goffs June Sale, this
gelding by Presenting is trained by Pat Doyle for Mrs Jacqueline
Costello. King Troy was bought as a foal by Boardsmill Stud on behalf
of a client and successfully pinhooked, realizing €24,000 as
a 3 year old.
Everyone at Boardsmill Stud was pleased to see Swaythe
realise top price at this weeks 3 day sale at Doncaster. The
LISTED winning mare by Swain is a sister to Courtain, whose 3 year
old gelding by Dr Fong was purchased as a weanling by Boardsmill
Stud and will be appearing at the Derby Sale in Tattersalls this
June. This is an exceptional family as Swaythe and Courtain are
also sisters of Grade 1 winner Stromness and they are closely related
to two more top class hurdlers in Rigmarole and Fire Dragon.
The 4th highest price on the last day of Doncaster January Sales
was realized by a 3 year old son of Kalanisi named Simarian.
Placed as two year old, this well related gelding realized 22,000stg
and was bought by up and coming Welsh trainer Evan Williams.
