With the yearling sales barely behind us and the horses-intraining sales also in the rear view mirror, the catalogues for the foal and breeding stock sales have landed on desks. When they had a moment to catch their breath, six bloodstock agents took stock of the past couple of months and revealed their thoughts to the TDN below.

TDN: What was your favourite yearling that you purchased this year?

Aidan O’Ryan: I loved an Acclamation colt (lot 329) I bought at Tattersalls Ireland for Richard Fahey that cost i60,000 from Egmont Stud. He is a proper 2-year-old type in that he’s strong, racy and seems early. He looks a very typical of Acclamation and I hope he’s very lucky for a very good owner of Richard’s in Phil Smith. Alex Elliott: Lot 150 at the Arqana August Sale; a Kingman (GB) colt out of Putyball (Silver Deputy) which I bought for i220,000. There have been some outstanding Kingman yearlings sold this year and I’d like to think that this horse was up there with the best of them. He goes into training with Michael Bell and is owned by Amo Racing Ltd.
