At the Somerville Sales last month a third yearling was purchased by Denis - a chesnut filly by Gustav Klimt out of a sprinting dam called Amour Fou. A strong looking filly, she has settled in well over the past month and is pictured here from last Sunday's parade of horses - which she took in her stride - at the ever popular Owners' Party. A collection of pictures of the horses in Sunday's parade can be found by clicking on the Gallery link.

The second yearling purchased from Tattersalls at Newmarket this week is for Chris van Hoorn Racing, a Churchill filly out of a Kodiac dam named Short Call. With a very large number of winners in her female line, in the USA and Canada as well as Italy, Germany, GB and France in group races, she has a most appealing pedigree. Short Call herself and her dam Wiwilia were both two year old winners, so successes for this filly will most likely be part of the training schedule for 2022 ! Pictures of the filly here show her strength and fine conformation.
