THE TAMAYUZ colt was backed and ridden away yesterday and judging how he went about his business today, “calm” and “professional” would be two words which sum up his exemplary attitude.
I went up to Harper Lodge Farm today to see how both he and the Twilight Son filly were getting on in the final stages of the breaking-in process. The filly had done more at Childwickbury Stud before she went to Dean Ivory’s but she’d had a couple of wolf teeth removed (very common in thoroughbreds) and so was on the lunge today.
The colt by contrast, was lunged initially in the large indoor school before being ridden by lad, James Kenny.
James gets on really well with the colt and was pleased at how he’s handled everthing so far. He’s a strong, powerful colt but unlike a lot of horses his size, he doesn’t throw his weight around and is a very willing and trusting youngster. At present, he’s being ridden on his own in the perimeter of the horse walker but he’ll soon progress to being ridden in the indoor school.
All has gone so smoothly, you could almost hear a “Pin Cushion” drop! The Tamayuz colt is out of the winning Pivotal mare, Pin Cushion who has produced three winners from four runners, including 6yo Lethal Lunch, who won again at the week end, his sixth career success.
The chestnut colt is being syndicated in 1/12th shares and Solario Racing has received a lot of interest in him. Many prospective owners would like to come down and see him at the stables but while current Covid restrictions apply, this will have to be on hold for a little while longer.
However, in the meantime, I am very happy to provide photos and video clips of his progress before restrictions ease, which I am sure they will quite soon.
