Syndicates End With Super Sales
1 November 2018
There were four of our Biddestone Racehorse Syndicate horses sold at Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training this week and they all attracted plenty of interest prior to sale and sold close to or above expectations.
Our sales were headed by Character Witness, a winner at Newcastle on his most recent appearance for Roger Varian, who sold for 70,000 guineas to Abdulrahman AA Al-Makhdoob, who was also the purchaser of Monday’s top lot Corrosive. It was an entertaining sale, with the auctioneer quipping at the end that he had been knocked down to Striptease Bloodstock! It is likely that Character Witness will now be heading to Saudi Arabia.
The three-time winner and useful handicapper Fastar had been incredibly unlucky not to win again this season for Brian Meehan and he was sold for 38,000 guineas to Avenue Bloodstock and is now heading to Ireland to be trained by the Kildare handler Gerard O’Leary.
Golden Slam had won impressively at Yarmouth this year and finished a very respectable third of twenty runners at Newbury the Friday before his sale. Trained by Roger Varian, he was sold for 16,000 guineas to Aldaban Stables and like his stablemate Character Witness is destined for sunnier climes.
Camomile Lawn had been a model of consistency for Eve Johnson Houghton and was a shade unfortunate not have won more than once. The well-bred daughter of Camelot was purchased by Stroud Coleman Bloodstock for 14,000 guineas and will now be heading to the paddocks as a broodmare in Ireland.
All bar one of our four horses at Tattersalls were sold for sums in excess of their original purchase price and a total of 138,000 guineas.
