Lost The Moon is now a winner twice and has developed, as I expected, into a filly full of potential. Her siblings have all done likewise and there is still so much improvement to come as she gets older and gains experience. We gave her plenty of time to grow into her big frame and after a few runs, which taught her a lot, she won her first race with ease by six lengths and has now won again despite going up in the weights. A mile and a half to two miles will be well within her compass and she is a very exciting prospect for the coming season. You just don't know where we may end up. I cannot recommend an involvement in her more highly.

Update: 23rd September:

I was really delighted with her comeback run at Chelmsford the other evening, where she moved well and kept on in the final couple of furlongs. She had a good blow afterwards and came back and ate up. We can now look for a race for her where she can become competitive once again. It is amazing some times what stages horses go through, usually it is because they are growing and developing still, which is certainly the case here. Lost the Moon is a really big filly who has still not matured completely and there is plenty more to come.

A very well grown, scopy gelding. Indian Red has been given time to grow and develop into his frame. Like all the offspring of his dam, they have constantly improved as they get older. He has had a few runs for experience and shown promise in them all. We are now getting to the stage where he will be very competitive in every race we run him in. He stays a mile and a half and will certainly get up to two miles with ease. He is also the type to jump a hurdle and is a perfect dual purpose horse for those of you who like both codes. We have not still got anywhere near the bottom of him, and there is tons of improvement to come.  

Update: 23rd September:

We were delighted with his run at Chelmsford this week, where he settled well, moved up smoothly and stayed on until the line. That was his first run for over three months and he will now be spot on for the future. He stayed the mile and six very well and looks like he will get further in time, but I will be going carefully up through distance and handicap with him in the coming months.

A report on Mark's selection process:

7-_The_Guvnor_with_the_string_as_they_return

Yearlings are purchased in the autumn to be prepared and trained for following season. Mark attends the sales worldwide in his search to find the winners of the future.

Pacemaker magazine reported Mark to be one of the top buyers of yearlings. The following shows the selection process that he undertakes for each yearling sale.

"We have bought some fantastic horses at unbelievably good prices over the years. This is where our hard work pays off - we look at almost every horse at each sale and therefore manage to find some exciting prospects.

"As I have said here before, the pedigree can sometimes set the price. But the horses we choose have merit all of their own. We buy yearlings that, in our opinion, have potential as racehorses; this means we do not buy just the pedigree. Athleticism, good-looks, great outlook and correct conformation are what we are looking for - genuine racehorses and potential winners.

"Whether we are spending £2,000 or £200,000 the same selection process is followed. We finally reach our 'to buy' list - some of which we buy but some of those on the list sell for far more than I consider is the right value.

"All I want is to give my owners plenty of enjoyment, so I try to buy them what I consider to be good, sound racehorses with scope for improvement at a fair price."

In addition to purchasing yearlings at auction, we can offer yearlings bred at Dulligham Park Stud. For example, Ted Spread, who was bred at the stud and is the winner of the 2010 Chester Vase, was purchased privately, as was the 2010 listed Galtres Stakes winner, Brushing.

Winning racehorses is what we are looking for and this is our constant aim on behalf of our owners.

The following are just some of the previous purchases made by Mark:

Winner of the St Leger (Gp 1) - Bob's Return (bought for under £15,000 and won in excess of £530,000)

Winner of the Duke of York Stakes (Gp 2) - Steenberg (bought for approx. £15,000 and won over £220,000)

Winner of the Gladness Stakes (Gp 3) - Cool Edge (bought for approx. £750 and won over £100,000)

Winner of the Brigadier Gerard (Gp 3) - Smokey Oakey (bought for approx. £12,000 and won over £140,000)

Winner of the Lily Langtry Stakes (Gp 3) - Astrocharm (bought for under £10,000 and won over £110,000)

Group & Listed placed - Babodana (bought for £15,000 and won over £220,000)

"I am delighted to have had great success for my owners," added Mark. "Owning a racehorse is all about fun, excitement and new experiences, but there are no guarantees - you still need that little bit of luck!"

Once budgets and orders have been agreed, your request can be included in Mark's search for the 'cream of the crop' of young stock.
