The sales bandwagon in Newmarket comes to an end this week with the mares up for auction. Although the yard is full to the brim, I might just try and buy another one if I see anything decent. After all, we will hopefully have two stables free as we have a couple of fillies off to sell. Canning Vale was only placed a few times on the racecourse but is very well bred and we hope that potential breeders are willing to splash the cash and make a mother of her. The other up for sale is Don't. She hasn't done what we had hoped and now seems a good time to cut our losses.
On the racetrack, it looks likely to be a blank week with just Avidly entered on Wednesday. Her gallop on Saturday wasn't up to her usual standard so it remains to be seen whether she actually does run.

Tight Lipped and Candesta are both in great form and will hopefully be running again in a fortnight. Candesta has really come back to himself now and I hope his first win won't be far away. Tight Lipped hasn't run for us yet but he's showing a good level of ability at home and should be competitive off his current handicap mark.
