Time is flying by, the Yearling Sales are already in full swing and Lilbourne Lad's first progeny are in demand!
Henrythenavigator ex Saintlike colt is enjoying quality time out. He will be sold at Goffs Orby Sale Lot 15.

Our two yearling colts are keeping us busy walking!

There are only 4 weeks left until our nice Henrythenavigator colt goes under the hammer at GoffsOrby Sale. He has been in full sales preparation for six weeks now. This consists of a 45 minutes walk either in hand or on the horse walker in the morning after breakfast. He then goes out into the paddock for a few hours. Although this carries with it some risk of injury it lets him enjoy time out for as long as it is possible before he enters the routine of a training yard where he will spend most of his time in a stable. I feel it is important to have future athletes enjoying their natural environment outside.  In the afternoon he spends 15 to 20 minutes on the lunge followed by a cooling down walk for 20 to 30 minutes.  After that it is time to get a thorough body groom followed by his supper. What a hard life....

Update: The first Lilbourne Lad Yearlings have been sold at Arqana and Doncaster Bloodstock Sales, the most expensive to date being a colt ex Cuilaphuca, sold by Redpender Stud to Peter and Ross Doyle Bloodstock for 130k . Congratulations to the Vendor Jimmy Murphy .


Lilbourne Lad's first crop yearlings appear to be in steady demand.
