International Yearling - 75% reserved!
Above: John Foote doing what he does best, inspecting horses!
A word of warning for anyone still mulling over whether to reserve a share in the internationally-bred yearling to be selected by our bloodstock agent, John Foote: with 75% now reserved, John leaves the country shortly to start inspecting yearlings in the UK and France for the October sales.
If you watched the 60 seconds with Jeremy Rogers, you'll hear him say "Signoff was the best horse I've been associated with, but we never saw the best of him due to injury." That's a huge statement considering who he has seen pass through the Weir stables, including Black Heart Bart, Humidor, Prince of Penzance, Mahuta and Palentino just to name a few.
And if you didn't know who selected Signoff from the UK Tattersalls sale as a yearling, we'll give you the heads up. It was John Foote, for $100K. John's record really does speak for itself, and he usually only buys one horse a year for Gerry Ryan, so this is a rare opportunity for a select few. His list of winners include Signoff (4th in the 2014 Melb Cup), the classy 3YO's: Furion and Fifty Stars, and good staying horses such as Last Week to name a few. Darren Weir likes Furion so much he has likened him to Signoff.
John Foote loves buying the international staying types, as he believes they are far superior to the Australian-bred stayers. "The English breeders and owners are starting to fall in love with speed stallions as has been the custom in Australia for many years. It means that you can buy UK-bred staying types even cheaper these days and this is where we can find great stayers without the ridiculous price tags," he says. That sounds like good old fashioned RTD value to us!
