Doug O’Neil has had a fabulous start to the season in Dubai and one of our purchases Charlie Croker, owned by Malhi Al Basti, was a nice winner at Meydan yesterday. He was purchased from Willie Browne’s Mocklershill Stables at Goresbridge Breeze Up Sale.
Duchess of Marmite the first purchase for fledgling trainer Richard Hughes, has won three races for him and was beaten a short head in a more competitive race at Dundalk recently. She looks to be improving all the time, with plenty to look forward to this season. Richard has had a great start, already having trained 11 winners to date, also including Bank of Gibraltar who we purchased.
