Hot Streak 2-year-olds impress at Ascot Sale
A Hot Streak filly was easily the most expensive female sold at the Tattersalls Ascot Breeze-Up Sale on Wednesday after recording a bullet time the previous day, as did a Hot Streak colt.
The Hot Streak filly out of Qatar Princess (by Marju) and the Hot Streak colt out of Positivity (by Monsieur Bond) were both among the top 10 fastest breezers at the sale, and were also among the top 7 most expensive lots.
The filly, bred by Linacre House Limited, was bought as a yearling for £20,000 by Daniel Benson and consigned at Ascot by his Dunsany Stables. She sold for £60,000 to Matt Coleman on behalf of the Cool Silk Partnership whose white and purple silks have been carried by the likes of Sands of Mali and Prince of Lir (both breeze-up buys).
The colt, bred by Fiona Denniff's Denniff Farms, was bought as a yearling for £15,000 by Howson & Houldsworth Bloodstock. He was consigned at Ascot by Knockanglass Stables and will also now carry familiar colours after selling to owner Tom Morley for £55,000.
We look forward to following both 2-year-olds – as well as Hot Streak’s other offering at the sale (and one by Havana Gold) – on the track in the coming months.
