Coulonces Sales has had an exceptional racing week with no less than 7 winners this week. The week kicked off last weekend with out homebred Home Of The Brave taking home the Group 3 Criterion Stakes at Newmarket. On Friday Havana Grey showed strong form when taking home the Listed Dragon Stakes (5f) at Sandown. The Karl Burke-trained colt won the National Stakes (Listed, 5f) at Sandown in May, and he was well-rated when striking once again under jockey PJ McDonald. The Godolphin-raced Roussel (Kodiac) gave chase in the closing stages under James Doyle, but Havana Grey stayed on strongly to the line to win easily by a length and a quarter.
Havana Grey was consigned by Coulonces and sold for €70,000 to BBA Ireland at Arqana’s 2016 August Yearling Sale. The colt is owned by Global Racing Club and Mrs Elaine Burke. He was bred by Mickley Stud and Lady Lonsdale and is out of the six-time winning sprinter Blanc de Chine. Click here to view Havana Grey’s pedigree.
Other winners this week consigned by Coulonces include Mojito (Requinto ex Narva), and Archetype (Le Havre ex Angel Rose), both winners at Sandown as well as Pouvoir Magic (Barmaid ex Cape Cross) a winner at Ayr.
Congratulations to all connections.
