At the forefront of a new trend in importing horses from UK and Ireland instead of Russia, Mr Maksat Akhaev, a client of AllanBloodlines and an owner/breeder in Kazakhstan, celebrated an amazing day today. SLIP CATCH (IRE) (INTIKHAB-BUCKLE) purchased at Tattersalls February Sales followed her Gr.2 win first time out by winning the local One Thousand Guineas (Gr.1). In 2nd place was another graduate of the same sale RUBY MURRAY (GB) (ZAFONIC-POPPADAM). SLIP CATCH is half sister to recent Irish 2yo Listed winner WATERWAYS by ALHAARTH. RUBY MURRAY is a first foal with two FANTASTIC LIGHT fillies to follow her, her dam being half sister to Irish 1,000 Guineas winner CLASSIC PARK.

On the same card, the Listed 1600 metre race saw two other AllanBloodlines purchases at February and December Sales respectively finish 1st and 3rd for Mr Akhaev. VALIANT ACT (IRE) (BRAVE ACT-JUNGLE STORY) won with AUTUMN DANCER (UAE) (TIMBER COUNTRY-GOLDEN DANCER) 3rd. AUTUMN DANCER was having her first run and is out of a SADLER’S WELLS half sister to PILSUDSKI.
