Good European breeze-up season continues as $50,000 pinhook resells for €180,000 in France

May 15

Our stellar European breeze-up season continued in Deauville on Friday with the sale of our Hard Spun colt with Church Farm and Horse Park Stud for €180,000 to Stephen Hillen. The colt, out of the winning Malibu Moon mare Mighty Moon, was a $50,000 purchase by Chad at the Keeneland September Sale. 

Our European arm enjoyed another good result only a day later when Acquitted, out of Goffs purchase Blameless, was an impressive winner for Kris Lees at Eagle Farm in Australia. Lannister Holdings bred the Night Of Thunder gelding in Ireland and sold him for €60,000 at the Goffs Orby Sale. Originally trained in Newmarket by Hugo Palmer, Acquitted defeated Mishriff when winning at Newbury at two.

Saturday’s success was only his second Australian start.

Chad ends OBS as leading buyer; purchases highlighted by $800,000 Justify filly

April 2022

With 15 two-year-olds bought for a total of $3.03 million, Chad Schumer ended the OBS April Sale as leading buyer. His purchases were headed by a daughter of Triple Crown hero Justify (pictured left), for whom he paid $800,000.

Chad said: “I have been coming to this sale longer than I care to admit. I do some pinhooking in Europe at the breeze up sales, and the same thing is true everywhere in the world … people want horses. We are coming out of COVID-19 now, and we are getting back to life; people want to enjoy themselves. They want to spend money in America, and the prices are well justified by the purses on the racetrack.”

Schumer Bloodstock are privileged to work for some outstanding clients. Credit must go to OBS for compiling an excellent catalogue and to the consignors for bringing the horses.

$30,000 PINHOOK BLOSSOMS INTO $330,000

April 2022

An excellent OBS April Sale was highlighted by the sale of our Malibu Moon Colt for $330,000 to Alex and JoAnn Lieblong.

The col (pictured left), out of the Street Sense mare Queen Daenerys, had been pinhooked for just $30,000 by Chad Schumer as a Keeneland September yearling. He was produced beautifully by Tradewinds Farm.

Overall, it was a busy sale for Chad. At the time of writing, he had purchased eight two-year-olds led by a Goldencents colt, for whom he signed at $535,000 following an exceptional breeze.

Fittingly, the colt is out of former Schumer Bloodstock purchase Ida Clark, the dam of current G1 winner Just One Time.

“He was a typical Goldencents; sometimes they can be small and light, usually not sales horses, but great runners,” Schumer commented. “This colt was a proper sales horse, big and strong with a tremendous walk. He was correct and vetted perfectly. When you jump through all the hoops and have a bullet work, you have to expect to pay.”

JUST ONE TIME WINS G1 MADISON; DAM PURCHASED BY SCHUMER BLOODSTOCK

April 2022

Just One Time showed a great turn of foot to run down Bell’s The One and win the G1 Madison Stakes at Keeneland on Saturday.

It was her first G1 success but brought her career total to seven wins from just eight starts for approximately $525,000 in earnings.

The daughter of Not This Time is out of Ida Clark, a Speightstown mare who was bought by Chad Schumer as agent for just $45,000 while carrying this filly in 2017.

The mare has also subsequently bred the stakes runner Black Stetson

Just One Time, who was previously successful in the G2 Inside Information Stakes, will now be campaigned by Brad Cox with the Breeders’ Cup in mind.

“It worked out today,” he said. “Obviously, there was a hot pace up front but it’s not ideal; we’d like to break and be a little more involved. That’s how she was before she came to us. We put a starting gate blanket on her today, and honestly it didn’t help her a whole lot getting away from there.

”I’d like to thank the ownership group (Warriors Reward and Commonwealth New Era Racing) for being patient with her. They sent her to us with thoughts of the La Brea (G1 at Santa Anita in December). I wasn’t happy with her when I first got her – how she was doing, how she looked – but she’s starting to really polish off and gave us the confidence to ship to Gulfstream.

“Then we had this race on the calendar ever since. Once again, congratulations to those guys (owners) and I want to thank them for being patient with her.”

With that win by Just One Time, we have now bought the dams of 9 subsequent G1 winners for an average price of $31,500.

EXCELLENT GOFFS
DUBAI WORLD CUP SALE

March 28

We were excited to be a part of the inaugural Goffs Dubai 2yo Sale at Meydan last week and weren’t disappointed thanks to the sale of both our colts for a significant profit.

Both were beautifully prepared as always by Church Farm Stables and Horse Park Stud in Yorkshire.

Our Tapiture colt, bought by Chad for $45,000 at last year’s Keeneland September Sale, resold to leading owner Fawzi Nass for AED500,000 – the equivalent of $135,000.

Meanwhile, our Mastery colt resold for $115,000 to Ali Hadad. Chad paid just $45,000 for him, also at last year’s Keeneland September Sale.

Our European breeze-up circuit now heads to Newmarket and then on to Doncaster, where the pinhooking partnership is represented by colts by Speightstown and Collected.

SUCCESSFUL OBS MARCH SALE

We were delighted with the results from the OBS March Sale in Florida this week.

Chad ended the week as a leading buyer with seven bought for a total of $800,000.

They were led by a Tapit colt out of the stakes-placed Corps De Ballet bought from Eddie Woods for $195,000 and also included 2yos by Arrogate, Connect, Liam’s Map, Mor Spirit and Twirling Candy.

Speaking of Twirling Candy, we were delighted with the sale of a colt by the Lane’s End Farm stallion who sold for $300,000 to Deuce Greathouse. He had been pinhooked for just $52,000 as a yearling by Chad with Kirkwood and Lambholm and beautifully prepared by Kip Elser’s Kirkwood Stables. We wish his new connections the best of luck. 

WINNING DEBUT FOR SETNA THE WISE;
DAM PURCHASED FOR $20,000

March 3

Facing a full field of experienced runners, SETNA THE WISE made the perfect start to his career on Thursday when successful on debut at Fair Grounds.

Trained by Jason Barkley, Setna The Wise overcame a wide trip to run down the leaders and win going away.

 

 

 

The son of Cairo Prince was bred by F. Thomas Conway and is the latest winner out of Smart ‘N Special – also dam of the highly-rated Marzouq.

Smart ‘N Special, a Smart Strike full-sister to G1 winner Shadow Cast, was purchased by Chad Schumer for $20,000 in foal to Liam’s Map at the 2020 Keeneland November Sale.

ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL DAY IN SAUDI ARABIA

It was another successful day for Schumer Bloodstock in Saudi Arabia on Friday with the 82nd meeting of the season – the International Jockeys Challenge that precedes the lucrative Saudi Cup card – highlighted by wins for Alnashaas and Mostawly.

Alnashaas, who was partnered by Shane Foley to win the International Jockeys Challenge Round 1 Handicap, was scoring for the 15th time. Both his sire TRANQUIL MANNER and dam SEA PINES were purchased by Chad Schumer on behalf of Saudi Arabian interests – Sea Pines cost just $22,000 at the Keeneland November Sale.

Also on the same card, Mostawly landed a popular success for Joel Rosario in the International Jockeys Challenge Round 4 Handicap. He is from the first Saudi Arabian-bred crop of FIRST DEFENCE, a Classic-producing sire who was purchased by Schumer Bloodstock from Juddmonte Farms to continue his stud carer in Saudi Arabia. First Defence was also represented the following day by Okku, who ran second in The Jockey Club Cup Local Handicap presented by The Ministry of Culture Dirt on the Saudi Cup undercard.

JUST ONE TIME LANDS G2 INSIDE INFORMATION; 6-TIME WINNER OUT OF $45,000 SCHUMER PURCHASE

January 2022

Just One Time took the step up to G2 company in her stride on the Pegasus World Cup undercard on Saturday to land the Inside Information Stakes in impressive style.

Now six from seven, the daughter of Not This Time is out of Ida Clark, who was bought for $45,000 by Chad Schumer while carrying this filly.

“Turning for home she was reaching out and I could feel her confidence,” said winning rider Joel Rosario.“I felt pretty good at that point that she was going to run big. With the slow break and [going wide], she was the best horse in the race.”

Added Brad Cox: “Where she was on the track kind of seems like a spot where horses kind of get out there and flounder and tire down the lane. For her to be able to stay on, shows her grit, determination and class.”

Just One Time was bred in Pennsylvania by Warriors Reward LLC.

Ida Clark is also responsible for stakes winner Black Stetson (More Than Ready). She also has a juvenile colt by Goldencents and a Runhappy yearling filly. The mare was bred back to Catholic Boy.

MORE SAUDI ARABIAN SUCCESS

January 2022

Another excellent day in Saudi Arabia was capped by the win of Markab Alreeh in the Rashed Bin A Al-Zenaidy Award.

Now a two-time winner, the colt is a son of Group 1 sire First Defence, who was purchased by Chad Schumer to continue his stud career in Saudi Arabia.

Not only that, Chad also purchased his dam Shirazeri and the sire of the second home, Article Of Faith.

Also on the same card, Motanammer landed his second win. Both his sire, Graeme Hall, and dam, Complex, are Schumer Bloodstock purchases on behalf of Saudi Arabian clients.

A week later in Riyadh, Alnashaas struck in the Two Holy Mosques Cup, a prestigious prize for apprentice jockeys.

As with Markab Alreeh and Motanammer, he boasts Schumer connections on both sides of his pedigree being by stallion purchase Tranquil Manner and out of Sea Pines, who was bought out of Keeneland for $22,000.

Congrats to owner Hassan Essa Mohammad A. Alboainain Sons.

MORE BIG-RACE SUCCESS FOR JENNIFER; DAM A $22,000 SCHUMER PURCHASE

January 2022

Jennifer‘s win in the Ministry Of Power Cup capped another excellent day at the King Abdulaziz Racecourse for Schumer Bloodstock purchases.

The nine-time winner (pictured), a daughter of Macho Uno, is out of Gunforhome, a $22,000 purchase by us.

Owned by ALassail Stable, Jennifer also boasts wins in the Ministry Of Energy and Ministry Of Media Cups, and has been Group 1-placed.

Also on the same card, another tough customer Masaabeeh landed his seventh win in the King Khaled University Cup. Both his sire, Stratford Hill, and dam, Shirazeri, were purchases by us on behalf of Saudi Arabian clients.

INTERNATIONAL SUCCESS

January 2022

The impressive win of Kupuna in a maiden special weight at Oaklawn Park capped a productive period for Schumer Bloodstock purchases.

The son of Hard Spun drew off for a five-length score for Bret Calhoun to provide a good update for his dam Hanalei Hailey (Malibu Moon) – the mare was bought for $20,000 only last November by Chad Schumer carrying a $25,000 cover to Maclean’s Music (he stands for $50,000 in 2022).

Meanwhile in Bahrain, Tawaareq captured the Al Riffa Cup to provide a major update for his half-sister Ghusoon, a 7,500gns purchase out of Tattersalls. Ghusoon has since become a stakes producer.

A relation to Ghusoon, Osratty, was also represented in Chile by the tough Sir Ruben, who scored again at the age of seven. Osratty was purchased by us for 6,500gns at Tattersalls, sent to Sir Percy on southern hemisphere time and Sir Ruben is the result.

Ghusoon and Osratty belong to the Height Of Fashion line, as does 2,000gns purchase Isswara – her immediate family received a boost when her half-brother Yurman won at Jebel Ali.

Also in Dubawi, Desert Fire captured the Group 2 Al Rashidiya Stakes for Saeed bin Suroor – he is a half-brother to €22,000 purchase Blameless, who has since gone on to foal two winners from as many foals.

CABO SPIRIT WINS EDDIE LOGAN STAKES; YOUNG DAM PURCHASED IN NOVEMBER

January 2022

Just weeks following her purchase for $130,000 at the Keeneland November Sale, Fancy Day received a mighty update when her second foal, newly turned three-year-old Cabo Spirit, captured the Eddie Logan Stakes for George Papaprodromou on Sunday at Santa Anita. 

A winning daughter of premier broodmare sire Shamardal and closely related to Tiznow, Paynter and Oxbow, Fancy Day is carrying a first-crop foal by Claiborne Farm’s War Of Will.

Held up on Sunday, Cabo Spirit split foes in the stretch and swept to the lead with a powerful turn of foot to win going away from Maglev. 

Fancy Day has a 2-year-old filly named Blame Day and a yearling filly by Yoshida in the pipeline.

*The updates continued to flow later into January when Fancy Day‘s first foal, Convention, also secured black-type – meaning the mare is now 100% black-type horses to runners.

SPEIGHTSTER TO STAND AT NORTHERN DAWN STABLES

SPEIGHTSTER, a leading second-crop sire, has been purchased by Jay and Christine Hayden’s Saintsbury Farms to stand at Northern Dawn Stables Inc., Hillsburgh, Ontario, Canada, in a deal brokered by Chad Schumer of Schumer Bloodstock.

He will stand for C$6,500.

The son of Speightstown ended 2021 as a top five North American second-crop sire by prize-money thanks to the earners of almost $4.3 million and within the top two by winners (71).

In terms of Ontario, Speightster ranks as the second leading sire overall and the leading stallion by number of winners.

“Canadian breeders will surely take note of the tremendous opportunity Speightster affords,” said Chad Schumer. “He is among the leading 2nd crop sires, behind only Not This Time, Nyquist, Frosted and Runhappy, and ahead of Laoban, Upstart, Outwork, Protonico, Brody’s Cause and Mshawish among others.

“He immediately steps in as the second ranked stallion in Ontario with bigger things to come from such as stakes winners Aubrieta, Dreaming of Drew and Tough To Tame, second in the G3 Iroquois at Churchill Downs and a Kentucky Derby contender.”

Speightster has already made an impact in Canada as the sire of Aubrieta, winner of the Glorious Song Stakes at Woodbine, and Dreaming Of Drew, winner of the Princess Elizabeth Stakes at Woodbine.

In two crops of racing age, he is also the sire of stakes winners Door Buster, Tantrum and That Kenney Kid as well as the G3-placed Tough To Tame.

Speightster’s racing career was one of brilliance, with a seven-length debut win at Keeneland, backed up with a 3 1/2-length victory over G2 winner Joking in his next start in a Belmont Park allowance.

He remained undefeated in his third start when capturing the G3 Dwyer Stakes at Belmont Park over G1 winner Texas Red.

A son of leading sire Speightstown, Speightster’s family is one of Canadian royalty; out of the Danzig mare Dance Swiftly, he is a grandson of Canadian Champion Classy ’N Smart, also the dam of G1 winner and leading sire Smart Strike as well as Canadian Horse of the Year and Hall of Famer Dance Smartly (dam of Canadian Champion Dancethruthedawn).

Chad Schumer added: “In terms of pedigree, all one can say is wow, by leading sire and sire of sires Speightstown and out of a Danzig half-sister to Smart Strike.”

Speightster will stand alongside Reload at Northern Dawn Stables Inc.

Jay and Christine Hayden plan to support Speightster and were in action at the Keeneland January Sale, notably as the purchasers of the G1 performer AUSUS.

For all enquires, please contact Sherry McLean on 416-576-3815, sherrymclean88@gmail.com; or Bernard McCormack on 905.261.8852.

EXCELLENT DAY IN RIYADH

December 2021

Many congratulations to our clients in Saudi Arabia on their excellent day at the King Abdulaziz Racecourse on Friday.

At the same meeting, Summeronsevenhills (Summer Front) also got back to winning ways. He was bought in partnership with Johnny Collins of Brown Island Stables after failing to sell for $45,000 as a yearling and went on to be a successful pinhook, reselling for £85,000 at the British two-year-olds sales. He went on to show smart form for Richard Hughes in the UK, notably when placed in a Classic trial.

Also on the same card, Almuthanna ran out an extremely impressive winners of the Gr.3 Ministry Of National Guard Cup.

PERFECT START IN EUROPE FOR KEENELAND YEARLING PURCHASE

September 2021

Indy Humor, a son of Distorted Humor sourced by Chad Schumer for $20,000 privately after failing to sell in Book 1 of the Keeneland September Sale, made the perfect start to his career when successful on debut at Bro Park in Sweden for Wido Neuroth.

Despite his lowly yearling valuation, he was resold through Church Farm and Horse Park Stud for £260,000 at the Arqana Breeze-Up Sale to Peter Doyle, bidding on behalf of the Nowegian based Stall Perlen.

WELDER GALLOPS INTO HISTORY; SIRE AND DAM BOTH SCHUMER PURCHASES

August 2021

The remarkable Welder galloped his way into history yesterday when becoming the all-time winningest horse at Remington Park. With his success in the 6f allowance, he was winning for the 16th time at the track and for the 27th time overall.

Bred in Oklahoma by Center Hills Farm, he is by The Visualiser (pictured right) and out of Dance Softly, both Schumer Bloodstock purchasers.

Welder‘s record for trainer Theresa Sue Luneack and owner Ra Max Farms LLC includes five renewals of the TRAO Classic Sprint Stakes, four Silver Goblin Stakes, and two Highland Ice Stakes, Oklahoma Classics Sprint Stakes and Remington Park Turf Sprint Stakes apiece.

He also owns these achievements:

Only thoroughbred in Oklahoma horse racing history to win All-Breeds Oklahoma Horse of the Year three years in a row. He has won the past three, a reward from Thoroughbred Racing Association of Oklahoma, presented by the Oklahoma Horse Racing Commission.

Was voted Horse of the Meet at Remington Park for a third year in a row (2018-2020). No other thoroughbred has won that award more than once. Welder has swept all four Champion categories he’s been in those three years – Horse of the Meet, Okie-bred, Sprinter and Older Male.

Only horse in Remington Park history to win four stakes races in one season (2018)

Eleven consecutive stakes wins at Remington Park, a record that is still live.

“Welder is just a phenom,” said Luneack. “He’s just a very, very special horse and I don’t do anything special.”

SARACOSA SETS TRACK RECORD IN LOVE SIGN STAKES

August 2021

Already G2-placed, Chad Schumer’s homebred Saracosa landed a deserved win in the Love Sign Stakes at Colonial Downs, speeding home in a track record of 1:39.72.

Trained by Cipriano Contreras, Saracosa trailed in seventh through the first six furlongs before jockey Francisco Arrieta asked her for run. She rallied inside, split horses late and drew away to win by 1 1/2 lengths. 

“Her first start of the year at Churchill Downs was at a flat mile — that was the only option, but she wants to go longer,” Schumer said. “Her second start (in the Delaware Handicap, G2) wasn’t the best; she had some trouble. Today she finally got a clean trip and she won. I know if she gets clear, she will run her race. There aren’t a lot of spots for older fillies and mares going two turns on dirt. This race was one turn but it was 1 1/16 miles, and I think that makes a difference.”

A daughter of Bernardini, Saracosa was fourth in last year’s G1 La Troienne Stakes at Churchill. The Love Sign victory pushed her earnings to $426,244.

The mare was bred under the banner of Meritage Ventures in Kentucky out of the Medaglia d’Oro mare Homeschooling. Also dam of the multiple winner  Self Taught, Homeschooling was purchased by Chad Schumer for $105,000 with Saracosa in utero.

$140,000 REDESDALE COLT!

August 2021

Redesdale enjoyed an excellent result at the Fasig-Tipton New York Bred Yearling Sale as the sire of a colt who sold for $140,000 to Reeves Thoroughbred Racing – a massive return on his first-year fee of $5,000.

The youngster in question was bred by Ron Bowden out of Dakota Kid, a Lemon Drop Kid half-sister to Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile winner Dakota Phone.

He was sold by The New Hill Farm.

Redesdale, a brilliantly fast Speightstown relation to Danehill, stands at McMahon Of Saratoga Thoroughbreds in New York.

$325,000 FOR GOOD MAGIC COLT

August 2021

Congrats to Jay and Christine Hayden on the sale of their Good Magic colt for $325,000 out of the Cara Bloodstock draft at the Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Sale.

He is out of the Giant’s Causeway mare Unreachable, a relation to Danehill who was bought carrying the colt through Chad Schumer in January 2020 after failing to sell in the ring for $55,000.

The mare’s three-year-old Lemon Pop has since emerged as a stakes calibre performer in Japan.

The colt was purchased by the China Horse Club and Gandharvi Racing.

SPARKLING DEBUT WIN BY $7,500 PURCHASE SWIFT TAP

August 2021

Trained by Jerry Hollendorfer, Swift Tap scored easily by a length and a quarter.

He was sold at the OBS Spring Sale as part of the Tradewinds Farm draft.

FIRST EMPIRE CAPTURES SOARING FREE STAKES; DAM SILSITA PURCHASED BY SCHUMER BLOODSTOCK

August 2021

First Empire looked a colt to follow when running out the impressive winner of the Soaring Free Stakes at Woodbine for Mark Casse.

Bred by Saintsbury Farms in Ontario, he is out of the Gr.3 Bourbonette Oaks heroine Silsita, who was purchased by Chad Schumer for $135,000 while carrying a filly from the first crop of Exaggerator.

In the process, he became the first stakes winner for young Coolmore stallion Classic Empire.

Previously successful on debut, First Empire was the only one not being asked for his full run as they turned into the stretch. Jockey Patrick Husbands just gave his mount a few taps during the stretch run to keep him occupied as First Empire powered to an easy 1 ¾ length victory with the third placed horse nine lengths behind the winner.

“I had so much horse swinging for home. I knew it would take a real nice horse to beat him,” said Husbands.

It was the second straight victory for the Ontario-bred, who was purchased by Harlequin Ranches from Cara Bloodstock’s consignment at Fasig-Tipton last October.

5TH STAKES WIN FOR STAR OF THE NORTH; SIRE AND DAM SOURCED BY SCHUMER BLOODSTOCK

July 2021

Mike Grossman’s excellent filly Star Of The North secured her fifth stakes victory when successful in the Frances Genter Stakes at Canterbury Park on Saturday.

Her win enhances a record that also includes successes in the Northern Light Debutante Stakes, Darby’s Daughter Division of the Clarence Scharbauer, Jr. Texas Stallion Stakes, Two Altazano Stakes and MTA Stallion Auction Stakes for trainer Francisco Bravo.

Both her sire The Hunk, a son of Speightstown who stands at Eureka Thoroughbred Farm in Texas, and dam Always A Star were bought by Chad Schumer, agent.

Always A Star, by Danehill, is also dam of the talented filly Always In the Munny, winner of last year’s Bara Lass Stakes.

UPDATE FOR PERFECT STEP

June 2021

System provided a fantastic update for Perfect Step on Saturday when the emphatic winner of the Listed Empress Stakes at Newmarket.

The two-year-old daughter of Galileo Gold is a half-sister to Perfect Step, a $31,000 purchase by Chad Schumer. The Iffraaj mare has proven to be an excellent producer as the dam of Cardini, who was Group 2-placed for Aidan O’Brien, and the highly promising Troll Peninsula, a two-time winner for the Niarchos family.

£160,000 FOR POINT OF ENTRY BREEZER

June 2021

Our final European breeze-up horse of the season didn’t disappoint at the Tattersalls Ireland Goresbridge Sale in Newmarket on Thursday, with the colt in question – a son of Point Of Entry – realising £160,000 ($230,000) to Richard Brown of Blandford Bloodstock.

The colt was purchased by Chad for just $35,000 as a Keeneland September yearling, and like the More Than Ready, Street Boss and Distorted Humor colts, was prepared by John Cullinan and Roger Marley of Church Farm and Horse Park Studs.

He is set to join Simon and Ed Crisford for Sheikh Juma Dalmook al Al Maktoum.

FROM $20,000 TO £260,000 - MORE EURO BREEZE-UP MAGIC

May 2021

Our excellent breeze-up season in Europe continued at Arqana in Doncaster when our Distorted Humor colt sold for £260,000 to Peter and Ross Doyle.

The colt was sourced by Chad Schumer for $20,000 privately after failing to sell in Book 1 of the Keeneland September Sale. Sent to Church Farm and Horse Park Stud, he grew into his frame and duly turned in a fine breeze on Wednesday to attract the attention of Peter Doyle, bidding on behalf of the Nowegian based Stall Perlen.

According to Doyle, the colt will be trained by Wido Neuroth.

Vendor John Cullinan was understandably delighted with the result.

“Chad Schumer bought him for us – and he can go shopping again!” he said. “We’ve loved him from day one, and he was well liked – he hasn’t put a foot wrong. Peter bought a nice Night Of Thunder off us last year to go to Norway and he’s been decent out there. This is the same sort of horse.”

Despite his lowly yearling price, the colt boasts a fine pedigree as a half-brother to Grade 1 miler Silentio and last year’s Grade 1-placed colt No Word. He is out of an unraced A P Indy relation to Green Tune from an excellent Wertheimer family.

STAKES SUCCESS FOR THE KING CHEEK; DAM A SCHUMER PURCHASE

May 2021

The King Cheek ran out the gutsy winner of the Listed Sir Barton Stakes at Pimlico on Saturday to record his fourth victory.

The Laoban 3yo, who scored by a head from Hozier with the pair almost ten lengths clear of the third, was bred by Pucker Ridge Stable out of Selfie (pictured below), a daughter of War Chant who was a private purchase by Chad Schumer.

The King Cheek is the second foal out of his dam, who has a yearling colt from the first crop of Redesdale.

FROM $7,500 YEARLING TO $100,000 2YO

April 2021

Fresh from a successful opener to the European breeze-up season, there was an excellent result at the OBS Spring Breeze-Up in Ocala thanks to the sale of our Tapiture colt for $100,000.

Sold by Tradewinds Farm, he provided a fine profit on his yearling purchase price of $7,500.

Christina Jelm, agent for Jerry Hollendorfer signed the ticket at OBS

SUCCESSFUL TATTERSALLS CRAVEN BREEZE-UP SALE

April 2021

We had an excellent Tattersalls Craven Breeze-Up Sale with both our colts finding new homes – and at a profit.

First up was our More Than Ready colt out of Goose Martini (above); bought privately by Chad after failing to sell for $47,000 at the Keeneland September Sale, he resold in Newmarket for 145,000gns ($210,000) to Rabbah Bloodstock.

Our Street Boss colt, bought for $37,000 by Chad, was also popular, reselling for 110,000gns ($160,000) to HH Prince Saud Bin Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.

Both were prepared by John Cullinan and Roger Marley of Church Farm and Horse Park Studs – they did an outstanding job!

A week later at Goffs UK in Doncaster, Schumer Bloodstock was on the mark again, this time courtesy of a Blame colt who sold for £175,000 ($245,000) out of Johnny Collins’ Brown Island Stables – he had been a $14,000 pinhook by Chad out of the Keeneland September Sale.

REDESDALE TO STAND AT HIDDEN LAKE FARM

Close relation to Danehill was the dominating winner of his first three starts

BREEDERS will have the rare opportunity to tap into the stallion making family of Danehill with the addition of REDESDALE (Speightstown – Harpia by Danzig) to Hidden Lake Farm at Questroyal North in New York.

Redesdale will stand for a fee of $5,000, stands and nurses, and a limited number of lifetime breeding rights are available. The horse retires to stud as the property of Hidden Lake Farm, LLC, Schumer Bloodstock and 3C Stable, LLC.

Campaigned by Chad Schumer and Brendan Walsh, Redesdale was the dominating winner of his first three starts over 6f. He was the sharp winner of a Churchill Downs maiden special weight on his career debut and later captured a pair of Fair Ground allowance races – on the second occasion he scored by four lengths for a 95 Beyer. He met defeat just once when injured in the G3 Commonwealth Stakes at Keeneland.

Making Redesdale a particularly exciting addition to New York is the fact that he is a member of arguably the most powerful stallion family in the world and from arguably the greatest sire line in the world.

By Speightstown, he is out of G3 winner Harpia, a Danzig sister to the outstanding stallion DANEHILL. Danehill sired 347 stakes winners during his illustrious stud career and is widely regarded as one of the greatest influences in the Stud Book; this year alone, his sire line has accounted for the winners of 75 G1 races worldwide.

Not only that, Harpia is a great-granddaughter of Natalma, dam of the ultimate breed shaper Northern Dancer.

This is the same family of the great sire Halo and Machiavellian

Chad Schumer said: “I don’t think you can find a more powerful stallion family worldwide than that belonging to Razyana and Natalma, and for a competitive fee, Redesdale offers the breeders the chance to tap into just that.

“His race record offers a snapshot of the abundant talent that we know this horse possessed. We are in no doubt that he would have had the speed to be competitive with the best around had injury not intervened and we are looking forward to supporting him strongly at stud.”
