During the Tattersalls Book 2 sale I was delighted to see a foal I purchased for 80,000gns with Hillwood Bloodstock sell for 160,000gns to Joe Foley.
The yearling son of Mehmas was out of the Listed placed mare Macau who has produced 2 winners from 2 runners to date including the Listed placed Macasai.
Pinhooking for those that don’t know is the term used for buying a horse to resell for profit and in this case it was buying a foal last November and re-selling as a yearling this October. Hillwood Bloodstock with whom I partnered on behalf of a client took charge of the foal after purchase and raised him into this year and then produced him for the sale at Tattersalls.
Congratulations to all involved.
