Apologies for the website being down for the last week, something out of our control. In the meantime there have been a lot of KRB purchases winning, including the exciting Coeur Sublime winning the Grade 2 WKD Hurdle In Down Royal.
Crievehill bought by KRB as a yearling won for the fourth time, by winning the Handicap Chase at Wetherby for Nigel Twiston- Davis with son Sam riding in the Highclere Racing colours.
Snookered has been in great form for Brian Ellison and he won again at Sedgefield to make it three in a row, he was bought by KRB as a yearling.
Aweeminit has also been in great form for the Skeltons and the Rio Diamond Racing Club, gaining some black type when being placed in the Matchbook Betting Exchange Novice Hurdle ( Listed) at Kempton and a week later winning the handicap hurdle at Wincanton. She was a KRB foal purchase.
One the same card at Wincanton I Could Do Better also won for the Skeltons by taking the handicap hurdle for owner Dermot Hanafan. I Could Do Better was bought by KRB as a three year old store.
Templepark and Plan Of Attack were both bought at Goffs Uk Aintree Sale on the same day, and they both won on the same day.
Templepark won the handicap chase at Wincanton for owner Carolyn Kendrick and he was ridden by her son Max for Fergal O’Brien. He was bought by KRB after winning a point to point and he has been a very consistent performer for the Kendricks.
Plan Of Attack was also bought by KRB after winning his point to point and was winning for the fourth time in the Novice Handicap Chase at Aintree under Aiden Coleman,for owner Alan Halsall and trainer Henry De Bromhead. This was a special win as it was Alan’s first winner at his local track.
Ballyellis won for the fourth time in his last five starts for Nigel Twiston- Davis, the six year old is sure to step up in grade now. He was bought by KRB as a foal.
Paul and Clare Rooney had a couple very promising horses win recently. Winningseverything a bumper winner last season won on his seasonal debut over hurdles in impressive fashion for Harry Fry and Sean Bowen. He was bought at the Goffs Land Rover sale by KRB as a store. Dusty’s Choice was also bought for the Rooneys in the Land Rover sale and he won easily on his debut in the bumper at Ayr for John Quinn.
Paul and Clare Rooney’s Just The Man is also a very promising three year old gaining his second win this season, by winning under Hector Crouch at Kempton for Clive Cox. Just The Man was bought by KRB at Goresbridge Breeze Up Sale.
Oscar Ceremony won the novice handicap chase at Kelso for Stef Keniry. He was bought at Tattersalls Ascot Sale by KRB.
The big meeting at Down Royal really kicks off the National Hunt season in Ireland and it was a good meeting for KRB purchases. Last year’s Triumph Hurdle second easily won the WKD hurdle ( Grade 2). He was confidently ridden by Davy Russell for Gordon Elliott and owner Chris Jones. Connections look to have an exciting season ahead with the son of Elusive Pimpernel, who was bought by KRB at the Goffs Punchestown Sale after winning a maiden on the flat at Navan.
The Bumper winner Pencilfulloflead was also trained by Gordon Elliott for his head lad and good friend Simon McGonagle. This was an impressive debut for the son of Shantou, who was bought by KRB as a foal and sold as a three year old in the Land Rover sale.
KRB bought two very nice prospects at the annual Tattersalls Horses in Training Sale in Newmarket. Metier who has a rating of 90 on the flat will go to Harry Fry, and Landa Beach will go to Liam Cusack. He was a progressive three year old when trained by Andrew Balding on the flat.
