Chelsea Thoroughbreds have supported me from the outset. I trained Fieldsman for them last year, to win first time out; giving me a very special first winner at Newmarket. This year Arthur Daley a good looking colt by first season sire Camelot joins their string.
Yesterday saw the annual Chelsea lunch and virtual yearling parade at the Bibendum Restaurant in London. I’m delighted that all of the shares in Arthur Daley have been sold. Chelsea Thoroughbreds, founded by Richard Morecombe and James Ramsden work hard, giving their owners a lot of fun both on and off the track.
Alex Elliott and I purchased Arthur Daley on spec at Arqana and we fully believe he would have made far more money later in the sales season at Tattersalls. He‘s a good looking, strong type who befitting his name has great character. He already catches the eye in the morning.
Whilst Chelsea Thoroughbreds make no apologies for targeting the top end of the market, syndicates can be accessible to everyone regardless of their budget. I train for a number of partnerships across all budgets, Excel, Ontoawinner have joined this season whilst Harnage, Saffron and the Foundation partnerships are all into their second season. I still have shares in a number of syndicates for 2017 and always welcome new owners to the yard.
