Rises Across the Board at Tattersalls February Sale
The Roger Charlton trained CREATIONIST was the top lot at 60,000 guineas on the second and final session of the Tattersalls February Sale which saw rises across the board and the third highest turnover in the sale’s history.
Creationist to be Work Companion for Romanised
The NOBLE MISSION four-year-old CREATIONIST was knocked down to Rupert Pritchard-Gordon for 60,000 guineas and is destined to join Ken Condon’s stable as a sparring partner for the stable star ROMANISED.
"He has been bought to go to Ireland and to Ken Condon's and though he will run as a dual-purpose horse he has been mainly bought to be a work companion for Romanised," said Rupert Pritchard-Gordon, racing manager for Romanised's owner Robert Ng.
"Creationist is a well-rated horse and looks as though he will do that job well," added Pritchard-Gordon, saying: "I am sure Ken will find a few options on the track for him, too."
CREATIONIST was offered by Roger Charlton’s Beckhampton House Stables with an official rating of 92.
St Just to Quantum for 55,000 Guineas
The GOLDEN HORN colt ST JUST is set to join Jedd O’Keeffe’s yard after being purchased for 55,000 Guineas by Quantum, the syndicate run by Jonathan Ramsden.
"I have watched this horse racing," said Ramsden, "and I think he is a nice type. We will probably geld him now and wait for a summer turf campaign. It will be interesting to see what sort of a trip he gets and how far he stays."
Consigned from William Haggas’ Somerville Lodge, ST JUST broke his maiden in a Nursery on New Year’s Eve and was offered with an official rating of 73. Quantum have 11 horses racing under their banner, all of which are in training with Jedd O’Keefe.
