We enjoyed a super morning last Saturday for our Yearling Parade. We welcomed 80 owners and guests to Coombelands to see the new yearlings and horses-in-training being paraded before everyone enjoyed champagne and canapés provided by Maria Shiner catering.
Frontispiece purchased from the Tattersalls Horses-in-Training sale is now sold, so too are two of our yearling fillies, No Nay Never purchased from Goffs Premier Yearling Sale and our War Command filly from Tattersalls Book Two.
There are still shares remaining in our Fountain of Youth colt who was purchased at Tattersalls Book Two, an exciting prospect by a first season sire and in the Sir Prancealot colt who we purchased last week from Goffs Ireland.
There are also a couple of shares left in older horses Hawridge Glory and Lightning Charlie. Hawridge Glory has been purchased to run in Amateur and Apprentice races throughout the winter months and then on the turf in the 2019 season. There is a 5% share left in Lightning Charlie who is a yard favourite, he is a tough and talented sprint handicapper who has won six races and been placed twenty-one times. He has had thirteen starts this year for the Lightning Charlie Partnership winning twice and placed on eight occasions.
Information on the remaining shares in the four horses can be found by following the link below.
We also welcomed Lucy Charnock on behalf of the Injured Jockeys Fund. Lucy had a stand full of wonderful gifts and ideas for Christmas, and we sold our Coombelands Photo Books full of images taken by Sarah Farnsworth with all the proceeds going to the IJF. We are delighted that over £1,100 was raised in total.
Below are some images of the morning taken by Louise Beasley.
