James on the 1/11/21 said "He is very pleased with the Born to Sea filly, she moves great on the lunge"
This filly was purchased by Nick from the Osarus yearling sales at La Teste for 28,000 Euros.
Nick makes a point of attending all of the European yearling sales to view all the fillies that are available at public sale. The trip to this sale is probably the longest journey but Nick came home glad he had made the trip as he secured four very nice filles for bargain basement prices.
This Born to Sea filly was probably the pick of the fillies at the sale. She is a well furnished filly who will improve alot physically for a change of scenery. She is a very good mover and Nick couldn't fault her action. She looks like a 6-7 furlong filly for next year and we should expect to see her on the track in Mid May.
Nick actually bid 34,000 on the filly in the ring but the vendor was feeling greedy and bid 35,000 where Nick stopped bidding. She was bought privately afterwards for a discounted 28,000 Euros. She was the highest priced filly in the sale and Nick expected her to be the highest priced filly before she sold.
She is out of a proven mare who has already produced a Group 3 winning Sprinter who picked up the Prix de la Bois in June as a 2yo. Her pedigree should offer us plenty of confidence that she has plenty of speed.
She joins George Boughey who Nick has teamed up with the likes of Mystery Angel, Oscula, Corazon and Hellomydarlin in their two years working together.
