Monday, 24th April 2006

Meanwhile NZ Chequers Stud's 1st season sire Ishiguru (Danzig-Strategic Manuever, by Cryptoclearance) "recorded his 1st winner in the UK" when 2YO colt Hellvelyn won on debut at Leicester, reported NZ Thoroughbred Marketing. Hellvelyn was purchased for 100,000 guineas (A$260,000) at the Doncaster St Leger Sales by trainer Bryan Smart on behalf of Sheikh Rashid Bin Mohammed. His sire Ishiguru was Danzig's highest-priced yearling sold in 1999 when purchased by Demi O'Byrne for US$1.15 million at the Keeneland July sale; he was subsequently a Gr3 winner in the northern hemisphere.
