December 2016 - our best month ever
Jan 01, 2017
December 2016 will go down as Clanbrooke's most successful month in our 20 year history. We scored on no less than 6 occasions and only narrowly missed another winner yesterday when Dalrada went under by half a head. What is extraordinary about the result is that the wins were achieved by 5 individual horses - Northkape won twice at her first two runs from a spell - and all winners were 3YO's. This surely is a sign to our near future with all these horses nowhere near maturity and they will be supplemented by the likes of other promising 3YO's in Sherpa Trail, Lucky Leslie, Iowafortune, Let's Make Whoopi and Rosie Rocks as we head into the Autumn.
What is even more extraordinary is that all the ten 3YO's mentioned above except for Whoopi, cost less than $25k! So now is the time to think about the 2017 Sales and what you would like to do. Clanbrooke will be at all the major sales but more than likely be active at the Sydney Classic, Melbourne Premier, Adelaide MM and the Melbourne VobisGold Sales. We will be looking for horses in the usual cost bracket that we work in and have success in. If anyone is interested in getting in on the ground floor with the choice of horses we will be looking at, please contact us.
