Some frustration but five successes
David had a busy Bloodstock South Africa Cape Mare Sale yesterday with a mixture of frustration and success.
Frustration because the main target for The Alado Programme, a Sadler’s Wells mare from a great Meon Valley family due to foal soon, was bought for R 325,000 over our top bid of R 310,000.
In addition, for a new South African client, we were underbidder several times on the R 200,000 area.
Success because we bought that client a winning filly off the track with a beautiful page and four other mares variously for clients and our own partnerships. Two mares in foal to GIMMETHEGREENLIGHT on early covers were particularly satisfying buys with people immediately asking if they could come in. Yes they can!
