John Foote, one of the most renowned judges of yearlings and global Bloodstock is heading out to buy 2-3 fillies for racing and breeding from Tattersalls and Arqana later this month.
Having been attending since 1974, he has purchased numerous black type horses ,recently he bought colts like of Furrion (cost $76,000 – already won $230,000 7 starts, 6 wins - Equal 3rd highest rated 3yo in Australia) & Fifty Stars (cost $140,000 - $123,000 5 starts 4 wins & a second with plenty of upside) and Signoff (cost 75,000 Guineas, won $772,000 on the track) from such sales and is now going to purchase some fillies with pedigree that will not only perform on the track,but produce commercial and successful progeny in the future.
Commissioned by Adam Sangster of Swettenham Stud, Foote will purchase and Sangster will retain a significant portion in each horse, to race in the famous green, blue sleeves and spotted cap, which have won over 200 Group 1’s and won races in 22 different countries. Foote will measure the market, and look to buy fillies between $150k - $175k AUD landed in Australia including travel, insurance and sales and John’s commission. The syndicate will not be charged any fees outside of the standard training fees. The fillies will be trained by Darren Weir and given every opportunity to succeed on the track.
These sales commence in a matter of days and run through to December, where Adam will also be present to purchase racing and breeding stock for Swettenham and clients.
We ask that if you are interested in one or all of the upcoming purchases, that you please email Mick Leonard or Simon McCartin or Adam Sangster to confirm your commitment immediately which ensure your involvement and will allow John Foote to scale his purchases. Adam feels that value can be found out of Europe considering the strength of our own domestic market here in Australia and John certainly knows the criteria needed to purchase the suited individuals as he has been going to Tattersalls since 1974.
