Horse: St Lukes Chelsea
Trainer: Ralph Beckett
Syndicate: Chelsea Thoroughbreds
Price: 78,000 gns
TERRITORIES is a Sire who has served Chelsea Thoroughbreds and Ralph well before with WILLIAM BLIGH, who was a useful performer for the team. Purchased for 50,000 gns, William Bligh was sold at the end of his 2yo career for 150,000 gns after achieving a rating of 98.
With this in mind, and with Ralph doing well with other progeny of the Sire, such as UNSPOKEN, Ralph was particularly keen to try and find another.
Charlie Gordon-Watson loved this Colt and put it up as his sole pick of the day, “he’s strong, athletic, and a gorgeous looking horse that walks with real purpose. He is the ideal horse that Chelsea Thoroughbreds will do well with”.
This particular Colt is bred to be a winner at 2, and be even better at 3. Out of a proven Dansili mare, who has produced 5 winners from 6 foals of racing age, he is a half-brother to the Australian Group 3 winner Wentwood and also a half-brother to this year’s progressive Handicapper Brayden Star, who is also now in Australia after starting out with Roger Charlton.
