Purchases – 2020 BSA Shongweni Mixed Sale

The Hollywood Syndicate added three purchases to our ever-growing stable of horses yesterday, including two off the 2020 BSA Shongweni Mixed Sale and one purchased privately. See more about their pedigrees and placements here.

First was lot 91, a colt by Eightfold Path (USA) out of the Machiavellian (USA) mare Modraj (GB). A late foal, he has been a bit of a late developer but time has done him the world of good and he has turned into a well put together, athletic type. The third dam (Allegretta – GER) in the family produced URBAN SEA (USA) and she was mother to the likes of GALILEO (IRE), BLACK SAM BELLAMY (IRE), SEA THE STARS (IRE) and ALL TOO BEAUTIFUL et al.
