In part two of the Tattersalls Yearling Sale in Newmarket England yesterday, Sheikh Hamdan, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and owner of the stallion standouts, Kahal, Muhtafal, Malhub and Albarahin on the Summerhill roster, shelled out £100 000 (almost R1.5 million) when his Racing Manager, Angus Gold, outbid all comers for the session topping colt by Europe’s Champion Three Year Old Miler, Dubai Destination.
The point is, there’s a paternal half brother to an Australian Group winner by the same sire (who celebrated his third individual Graded Stakes winner this week in Europe) in the Summerhill Ready To Run draft, and he’s already turning a few heads with his big fluent action. Of course, you needn’t take our word for it; just turn up on Friday at 11:30 am, and see for yourself at the gallops. If you can’t do that, look out for him on both Bloodstock SA and Summerhill’s websites (or better still, watch Tellytrack) for a recorded version.
Then raise your catalogue, and write your own history!
P.S. And we’ve saved you the transport.
