Elliot Secures Espouse for 32,000 Guineas
Agent Alex Elliot managed to secure the three-year-old filly ESPOUSE for 32,000 guineas. The winning ELUSIVE PIMPERNEL filly was consigned from Simmonstown Stud and was rated as highly as 88 for trainer Jessie Harrington and owners Anamoine Ltd. She is out of the OASIS DREAM mare SEA OF DREAMS, a half-sister to the Group winning PINCHECK and VALERIA MESSALINA.
Elliot, who was bidding from the US, had plenty of reason to be interested in the filly;
“My mother part owns the two-year-old half-sister Azure Blue who was very unlucky on her most recent start and we hope could be stakes class. She’s a filly from a young family that I like a lot who had plenty of ability so I’m excited to have bought her.”
Patrick Cooper, representing the vendors commented;
“We had a great sale. It was all very easy and for the lower end of the market, online is probably the way forward.”
