"I loved him, I thought he looked a very race colt - one of the nicest today," said Crisford. "He's been bought for a new client, let's hope he can fulfill their dreams."
"It's a fantastic result, just sensational," said Marion Stauffenberg following the sale.Philip added: "He's been a lovely horse all the way through. I saw Siyouni win his first race and thought then this is a horse I needed to follow. Then we saw his first foals and decided to use him off the back of those. We currently have two mares in foal to him."
"I am delighted," said Kent, "It's not often that a Kent is stuck for words!"He is a lovely colt and closely related to Monsieur Joe, who has been a flag bearer. He has never put a foot wrong."
“He was a smashing colt and showed himself well," said Crisford. He’s by the sire of the moment, Dark Angel, who has proved himself as an exceptional sire and his progeny are hot commodities at the moment.
“He is for the same new client as today’s earlier purchase and I’m looking forward to seeing him next year.”
“She is a beautiful filly and had a good walk to her," said Nicoll. "She’s been bought for an existing client and will stay in training in Britain. A trainer will be decided in the future.”
"I bred the Rio De La Plata out of a family that has been very good to me," says Marnane. "The dam [Gutter Press] is a half-sister to Tax Free, who I bought and actually couldn't sell - he was very crooked but he's a grand horse who has won over £600,000. It's a very good fast family - Inxile is also in there."I also sold Rio De La Plata here as a two-year-old. He was a christian of a horse, very tough with a great temperament. A super horse."Asked if he has plans to use the Darley stallion again at Haras du Logis, he said: "I will be now! He's very well priced. I also bought a couple of yearlings by him at Osarus."
"He was a beautiful horse. Very athletic with a great swing to him. And it helps that nobody has had a bad one by the sire yet!"I just thought Newmarket would be the place for them, and it turns out they were very well liked."
"It's been very difficult to buy breeze-up horses," says Marnane. "But we've been lucky. We've able to buy Kodiacs and Dark Angels, and then there was the three grand Street Cry - it was lucky I was there standing by the rope!"
"This is the second Kodiac we've bought," said Richards. "We bought one at Goffs last year and he's just about to go out to Hong Kong - he'll be sold in March next year. We're very pleased with that one."There aren't many Kodiacs in Hong Kong but he is a very good sire and there's no reason why he won't be successful there. They're fast, they're tough, they go on most grounds and they're durable."This colt had a touch of quality but he wasn't totally typical of the sire. The dam is by Singspiel and that's not a bad thing."
