We were thrilled to have bought this smashing two-year-old colt by the new sire sensation, WOOTTON BASSETT, at the Arqana Breeze-Up Sales.
Wootton Bassett was the unbeaten French Champion two-year-old and is now the sire of numerous Group One winners around the world. They include the French Derby winner, Almanzor, who is a stallion in his own right, the brilliant mare Audarya, winner of the 2020 Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf and the lightening-fast Wooded, who won the Prix de l’Abbaye on Arc Day last year.
This colt’s dam, Amanda Carter, was a tough, talented. race mare and she has produced a number of winners, including the multiple Group placed and Listed scorer Salateen. Wootton Bassett is way and above the best stallion that Amanda Carter has visited to date.
He is in training with classic winning trainer, Andrew Balding who is having a fantastic season. He has had a lot of success for Thurloe over the years and presently has our classy-winning filly Achelois.
