On the gallops
In recent years, we have purchased some promising yearlings, which have appreciated in value very quickly. Overall, we always show a healthy profit over the 2 and 3 year old's careers, provided the horses are sold when the best opportunity arises.
Hucking Horses was a small select syndicate that we put together at the beginning of 2006. Due to the success of this, we are now putting together our fifth "Hucking" syndicate. This is aimed at reducing the risk to the individual owner to an absolute minimum and, at the same time, increasing the opportunity to go racing on a more regular basis, whilst showing a profit over a 2 year period.
This syndicate will feature a Moss Vale colt "Mossgo", who won on his racecourse debut at Yarmouth in a 5f maiden 10th April, and an Assertive colt and this is what John had to say about them “the Moss Vale colt is the same sire as Gung Ho Jack who did so well for us this year. This horse reminds me very much of him, although I feel he is a nicer individual with more scope. He has a very willing attitude and a great stride.”
“The Assertive yearling colt is by a sire that caught my eye. Assertive is a first season sire who looks to have really stamped his horses. This lad is a decent size and a great bodied horse with plenty of scope. He is really impressing me on the gallops and, although he doesn’t look to be an early type, he certainly should make a 2 yr old. He looks an exciting prospect from a sire that looks sure to make his mark,” explained John.
