Nigel Hawke’s Thorne Farm Racing

Friday 24th May 2019


We’ve just had a busy week at Doncaster sales, it’s the big spring sale for national hunt stores and horse in training.

It’s always well attended and this year seemed more so than ever.

The top price was £620,000 for a horse in training, records smashed to bits also there were a few more that made good money but not to that extent.

We came home with three nice horses, the stand out is a half brother to Heart of Kernow he’s by Sageburg and we know the pedigree well, also a well bred Yeats horse and a big horse by Rail Link.

They all look like big chasers and we’re very pleased with them, they will be broken in and then chuckled out to grass for the rest of the summer.

We have also bought from Ireland a lovely horse called Eurowork, he’s a winner of a point to point and was very impressive, he’s bought for a good friend of Nigel’s who’s had horses with him before so let’s hope he’s lucky he certainly looks the part and is by the same sire as the horse that topped the sale in Doncaster.
