Progressive Knight breezes in
18th May 2022
The progressive Twelfth Knight breezed to an impressive first win at Yarmouth this afternoon, making all the running under Hollie Doyle.
The two-year-old, recruited from the last year’s breeze-up sales for just £20,000, was building on two promising runs on his third start, having finished placed third and second on his first two outings for the Archie Watson team.
Twelfth Knight always looked in command of the race, with Hollie soon settling the issue once she asked her mount to lengthen. The pair came well clear of their toiling rivals over a furlong out, with Hollie able take things easy during the closing stages as she coasted to a comfortable success.
The bargain buy is another quality find for us from Goresbridge, a sale we have an incredible record at having found quality horses like Maystar, Mehmento and many more winners in recent years.
With the Goresbridge sale due to take place tomorrow, there couldn’t really have been a better reminder of what a rich source of future winners Goresbridge has been for our owners.
The progressive Twelfth Knight, pictured below along with a few of other Goresbridge graduates, is clearly yet another quality addition and hopefully a horse that can build on his impressive first win and give his owners some more great days this year.
For now though, our attention switches firmly to the Fairyhouse sales ground and the data from today’s individual breeze-ups – the two furlongs or so this year's Goresbridge two-year-old cohort exercised over today ahead of the sale.
Past evidence suggests there’ll be some bargains to be had in the sales ring and we’ll be doing our utmost to find them!
