Hello Youmzain Colt to Blandford for 150,000 Guineas3 May 2024

Hello Youmzain continues to make a strong impression at the European two-year-old sales and his sole offering at the Tattersalls Guineas Breeze Up Sale recorded the third highest price of the sale.

Longways Stables’ son of Hello Youmzain sold for 150,000 guineas (NZ$330,000) and it was Blandford Bloodstock’s Richard Brown who struck for the March-born colt with bloodstock agents Oliver St Lawrence, Ed Sackville and Ross Doyle, accompanied by the Middleham Park Racing team, among those thwarted.

“I seem to be cornering the market in Hello Youmzains, that is the third one I have bought this breeze-up season," laughed Brown.

“I guess I like his stock, I have bought him for Sheikh Juma and he was particularly keen on him from the start. I put a list together, and when this horse was there the Sheikh seemed fairly excited about him. This horse looks a lovely sort, did a very good breeze and the sire has the credentials to be a good stallion."

When asked to compare his three Hello Youmzains, Brown said: "They all have great muscle and balance, and have got a bit of class and style about them. I'll be honest, at the yearling sales he was not on my radar at all, but he has stepped up here to be very much on my radar.”

The colt will reportedly go into training with James Tate. He is out of the two-year-old winner Dream Dreamer and was a good pinhooking result for Longways’ Mick Murphy having been bought at Book 2 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale for 35,000 guineas. - story courtesy of Tattersalls.
