Boardsmill Stud Yearling & Foal Consignment for
Tatts November NH Sale
Boardsmill Stud has a small but select draft for this years
Tattersalls November National Hunt Sale.
Yearlings - Sunday November 7th
Boardsmills sole yearling representative is Lot 189 a gelding
by resident sire Court Cave, who has made a great start at stud.
Out of Freya Alex, a winner on the flat and over hurdles, this gelding
is a very athletic type with a good walk. His 3yo full sister has
been recently named and is going into training with Gordon Elliott.
Court Cave has made a tremendous start to his stud career with
his first runners. One of his 1st runners was the black type performer
Whodoyouthink, who won 2 hurdle races last season and
finished 4th to Dunguib in the Grade 1 Deloitte Hurdle. Also sire
of debut bumper winner Champion Court who subsequently
realised £130,000 at Doncaster Sales. Court Caves stores
were very much in demand this year also, and his 4 offerings at
Goffs Land Rover Sale in June sold for an average of almost €20,000.
This was the 3rd highest average for Living Irish Based Sires, behind
only Presenting and Kings Theatre.
Court Cave only has 2 yearlings and one foal catalogued in this
sale, so there wont be too many opportunities this winter
to buy progeny by one of the most talked about up and coming National
Hunt Sires at the moment.
Foals - Tuesday 9th November
Lot 741 is a colt foal by Stowaway ex Diminished. One of only 6
colts by Stowaway in this sale, this June born foal is very well
developed for his age. He has loads of bone and substance and looks
sure to develop into a real nice older horse. His sire Stowaway,
has made a real big impression as a sire with relatively few runners
on the track. His flag bearer last year was the Grade 2 hurdle winner
Western Leader and he has an exciting prospect this
year in dual winner Hidden Cyclone also trained by John
Shark Hanlon. This foals dam has bred a winner
from her only runner to date and she is a half sister to the high
class Willie Mullins trained chaser Scotsirish.
Lot 742 is a filly foal by Kalanisi ex Iktitafs Sister. This
filly is the first foal out of a half sister to high class Grade
1 winning hurdler Iktitaf. For a first foal, she has
loads of size and given her pedigree she looks a nice dual purpose
prospect for the future. By the high class dual purpose sire Kalanisi
who has enjoyed another tremendous season under both codes. Kalanisi
is one of the rare sires who produces high class horses of both
sex, and has a proven track record with his fillies. He has sired
stakes winning fillies on the flat in Hasanka, Enforce
and Sindirana and also Royal Ascot winning filly Missoula.
Over jumps from relatively few runners, he has sired the David Pipe
trained mare Sure Josie Sure who won a bumper and three
hurdles last season. Pipe has described Sure Josie Sure as a
big gutsy mare, with a heart to match. Shes got easily enough
size for fences. Other jumps winning mares include Spring
Dream, Enforce and Missoula.
