"The Power filly is gorgeous and has a good back pedigree," says Marnane. "She's quick and very straightforward. She'll be at her best on top of the ground."The Caradak colt was bought out of Spain at the same sale as [Bansha House grad] First Selection. He was the best colt in that sale and looks a real racehorse."
"The Nathaniel is a nice colt," says Browne. "He didn't do the quickest breeze on Monday but he'd been showing up well at home, enough to say he will be a nice back end two-year-old over 7f to a mile - he's by Nathaniel out of a Swain mare so that's probably to be expected."
"We are delighted and it's great that he is going to such a good trainer," said John Kilbride of the colt who was prepped in Newmarket by Micky Cleere. "It is important that our draft go on to win - keeping that upward trajectory is vital."
"He was always a big, good-moving colt," he said. "But he was a bit backward when I bought him and he toed out. That really improved over the winter."He's always had a good mind."
"He'll stay here for now," said Donald. "He could race here or wait until Hong Kong. I'm a big fan of the sire and I thought this colt had great balance and temperament. He was the only real one on our list today."
"He's very typical of The Factors I've seen," said McCalmont. "An attractive colt recently made a similar figure at Barretts [Two-year-olds in Training Sale in California]."He did an exceptional breeze despite racing on sticky ground that probably wouldn't be to his liking - he has a great stride. [Stonestreet manager] John Moynihan saw a video of the breeze and liked him too."
"She's been bought for Sayed Al Altayeh, chairman of the Dubai Racing Club," said Marshall. "We were looking for a filly. We've tried on a few but the market has been strong tonight and we've missed out, so we're very pleased to get this filly. Hopefully we'll have some fun with her."
"He's a colt you can crack on with," said Brown. "He looks a straightforward colt by a stallion who in my opinion is underrated, and he did a fabulous breeze."For me, this colt and the Invincible Spirit colt last night were the picks of the sale - we missed out last night so we're delighted to get this horse."
"He's going to take a bit more time," said Brown. "He's a May 21 foal with a lot of [damsire] Galileo about him. He's still a real baby."He's been bought for a patient owner but I don't know yet who will train him."
