STRONG FOAL SALE OPENING FOR BATED BREATH

A BATED BREATH colt out of Lifting Me Higher was the first lot to reach a six figure sum at Tattersalls December Foal Sale yesterday when he sold to Franny Woods for 150,000gns.

The Pocock family bought Lifting Me Higher in foal to BATED BREATH at last year's December Sale for 42,000gns. Nick Pocock said: “Everything came right – Bated Breath had a good season and the mare had a lovely update. We couldn’t have asked for a better season, and the foal’s attitude since he came here has been brilliant. It was the same at home.

“He was the first Bated Breath foal in which we have been involved, and we liked him so much we sent two mares to the stallion this year.

BATED BREATH's foal average for 2017 is just under £46,000 (13 sold) to date, over four times the fee they were conceived at.
