In 2019 we had great success on track and disappointment in the fall auction.
PEANUTS was the queen of the crop as the 4 year old mare by Andover Hall and From Heaven Above won 7 out of 12 races for the season including Breeder’s Crown and St. Leger. She finished second in Villinmiehen Tammakilpa and third in the open Derby with season earnings over 180 000 euros or twice as much as the second best mare. Wonderful job by trainer Anne Kangas and driver Jukka Torvinen.
In the fall auction in Ypäjä, Finland we had only one baby for sale:
LOOKINGFORANSWERS, 2018 colt by IL Villaggio and Solberg. The handsome youngster did not draw too much attention so, we were forced to let him go via private sale after the auction. Good luck for the new owners!
