Jack Hobbs X The Pirates Queen 20 Realises £40,000 @Goffs UK August Sale 05/08/21

AppleTree’s homebred Jack Hobbs x The Pirates Queen 20 gelding made a cool £40,000 at Goffs UK in Doncaster on the 05/08/21. The result was fantastic for all the team. Jonny our stud groom had our 2020 gelding looking and prepared to perfection. Jack out of AppleTree’s only NH mare The Pirates Queen was very popular and therefore busy throughout the 2 day sale with viewings, he also had a grade 1 scope to accompany  his good physical and great movement. His reserve was set at £30,000 and although we knew Jack had been received well you can never be sure till the hammer goes down. We would like to thank all who came to see the horse including Ryan Mahon and Jerry McGrath  who supported Jack in the ring with much appreciation to Brian Ellison who struck the winning bid. We wish Brian the best of luck with Jack and look forward to seeing him on a racecourse in the future.
