About eighteen months ago I “gently persuaded” Ollie and some of my owners to put together a breeding syndicate. Between us we had six fillies which were retired from racing for various reasons and our syndicate was born.
Four mares went to Tally Ho stud in Ireland to meet their boyfriends and two stayed here to meet their men. All six became pregnant. And now the foals are starting to arrive.
At time of writing, we have four of the six:
- Barathea Dancer has given us a colt by Zebedee
- Lifes A Whirl has given us a filly by Society Rock
- Mystical Witch has given us a filly by Dick Turpin
- Flaming Telepath has given us a colt by Baltic King
That means two are still to arrive. Southwark Newsflash is in foal to Sir Prancelot and Patience is in foal to Libranno.
With the nice spring weather today the earlier arrival (the Dick Turpin) has had a little run out in the paddock and is looking a nice sturdy girl already.
Here are some photographs for you to look at. I will add more though it’s a bit busy at the moment with four little things on the ground and two still to come…….!
