By New Approach ex Danuta (Sunday Silence)

A beautifully bred son of New Approach which you would expect as he was part of the Godolphin disposal. We were given first option on him after he was snapped up by David Easterby at the recent HIT sales, with the trainer wishing to retain a leg. Having visited the yard and viewed him it was a simple choice.

He was highly regarded by his former owners, but eventually sent to the sales after a number of setbacks delayed his progress. Whilst he has had his physical issues in the past our vet is confident there is no reason they will hinder his progress in the future. There will not be many (if any) opportunities to buy into a horse with such a pedigree who is already rated 93 at this price.

He is with a yard famed for their ability to improve horses of his profile and is untested over 1m 4f and above. He is just about to start back in training and will provide us with some fun days out this summer.

We will give him plenty of time to acclimatise and bench-mark his progress to ensure he is pitched at a level where we can be competitive. Depending on how far he stays, we have a wide range of options.
