Celebrations all round!

It was a successful afternoon for Chestnut Tree Stable’s connections at Tattersalls Book 2 Yearling Sales yesterday. BB Bloodstock (Val Beeson, Lynn Lambert & Stephen Russell) who are all individual owners at Rae Guest Racing, took their first yearling to the sales, consigned by Houghton Bloodstock. This good-looking colt by Zoffany out of Bahia Breeze sold for 240,000gns which was unexpected. Having all been part owners of Bahia Breeze when she was in training with Rae, he reacquired her for the group in foal with this colt in December 2016. Since then she has been at Colin Murfitt’s Pantile Stud near Newmarket (another one of our owners) brilliantly cared for by Bo Hicks-Little and has since produced a filly foal by Twilight Son and has one in utero by Nathaniel.

Then Derek Willis’ Cape Factor 1st foal he sold last year for 120,000gns sold for 200,000gns. He still owns the mare and sibling and they are all at Pantile Stud too.
