Sir Owen and the Go Bloodstock team were thrilled to see 3yo colt BEST OF BORDEAUX reclaim his place at the top of the 3yo sprinting rankings with a determined Group 2 win in the Roman Consul Stakes at Randwick. We were delighted to partner with Coolmore on their purchase of this exciting young stallion and it is very pleasing to see BEST OF BORDEAUX back at his best here. Trainer Kacy Fogden deserves a special mention with her hard work deserving of the win – with an A1 ride delivered from Ben Melham. Thank you to all to have made this happen. Bring on the Group 1 Coolmore Stakes.
2yo colt KING’S GAMBIT could not have debuted in more impressive fashion in the opening race of the day at Caulfield dismantling the Listed Debutant Stakes in a red hot time for Blake Shinn (Is there anyone riding better?) A good looking son of I AM INVINCIBLE racing in the revered Gooree silks – KING’S GAMBIT is a very exciting colt for Sir Owen & partners to look forward to with big targets on his radar. Special mention to expert handlers Snowden racing and to Henry Field who picked this colt out from birth as a future star for the colt syndicate.
Go Bloodstock have part-owned 3 x stakes winnings 2yos this season – a product of Sir Owen’s strategy and investment in this 2yo crop. We are thrilled with the results and we would like to thank all our partners who we could not do this without. A big season ahead.
