Boomer Bloodstock made it’s maiden voyage to the Canadian Yearling Sale this week in Toronto on behalf of client Discovery Racing purchasing two impressive colts. After looking at the entire catalogue of 320 yearlings with the brief of finding the best horses to target the Queen’s Plate ($1m Canadian Bred Race over 2000m or 1m 1/4 for Three Year Olds) Boomer settled on two colts both by veteran Ontario sire Milwaukee Brew.
Hip 100 a Colt from Gail Wood’s Woodlands consignment was the third foal out of the Silver Deputy mare Torched Gold, herself a sister to two stakes winners Greed and Fear and R Naja and out of the winning Gr.2 placed Chirimoya. The impressive looking colt was a bargain buy in Boomer’s eyes at $25,000.
Later in the day Boomer purchased his second colt Hip 259 from renowned nursery Huntington Stud Farm for $32,000. The colt is out of the Stakes placed Chapel Royal mare How Far Is Heaven who herself is a half-sister to the Gr.3 winner and $650,000 earner Wanna Runner as well as the Queen’s Plate winner Midnight Aria. “Both colts are quite similar types, which is understandable given they are both by the same sire although Hip 259 is three months younger so he is touch more immature. They both have displayed great dispositions throughout the week and are lovely movers that have a lot of quality to my eye. They will both go into training with Julia Carey here at Woodbine where hopefully they will give us all something to get excited about”, Boomer said.
Boomer will now head to Kentucky for the Keeneland September Yearling Sale which starts in just over a week in Lexington.
