Another Successful Trip To Park Paddocks Selling our Hawkbill Colt For 42,000gns And Adding A New Recruit 28/04/22

AppleTree team had a successful trip to Tattersalls Guineas sale in Newmarket selling our Hawkbill x L’ile Aux Loups colt for 42,000gns in partnership with Malcolm Bastard. We bought the colt as a foal for 3,000gns which shows a nice return. Billy was bought to keep our Sea The Stars foal at the time company as we only had one colt on the farm. Jonny and I went to the sales looking for a foal that would do a job for us with a limited budget and Billy was the result. We would like to thank Malcolm for producing the colt in fine fettle showing a very professional breeze and in great order. AppleTree would also like to wish the purchases Marco Bozzi Bloodstock the best of luck with him in the future, we will watch with interest. We also added a new recruit Time Test  / Poly Pomona colt to go into training with Alan King. he is a fine individual with size and scope, the horse did a nice breeze moving great and looks to be an exciting recruit for Alan.
