"We liked the filly but we also liked what we had seen of the sister," says Benson, who is based in County Meath and assisted by her sons Daniel and Jordan. "She was still a maiden but had run some quite good races, so we were hopeful - although we were hopeful of her winning a maiden rather than anything else!"This is a lovely filly with loads of boot. She's been very straightforward to do."
Brown said: "I thought he did a very good breeze and there's a very good female line going back. I remember Rio De La Plata well from his breeze-up days. He was obviously a very good two-year-old and I've had a lot of luck buying from Tally-Ho."He's been bought for David Simcock."
“We're regular buyers here, this sale has always been quite successful for us and the catalogue this year looks a decent one. He breezed really well and ran a good time, hopefully we can get on with him pretty quickly.
“We've started the season reasonably well with a few winners. Last year we had 33 winners on the Flat, hopefully we can go on and have a few more.
We've got a couple of Kodiacs at the minute, including Sign Of The Kodiac who was unlucky not to win the All-Weather Championship race. Kodiacs are built to get on with and that's what we'll try and do with him as quickly as we can.
We've 26 in training and about a dozen two-year-olds. This horse is going to Robert Cowell, it's just the logistics of where Robert and James [Given] are. This'll be the fourth we've got now with Robert.”
She's a very athletic filly that has plenty of scope and looks like she'll progress. She breezed well and in a good time."
“He showed good speed [in his breeze] and is a lovely individual. He was at the top end of what we wanted to pay and sometimes you've got to stretch out for the ones you want."
