Brocklesby Entrants Start At Musselburgh

Garswood in action (sire)
4:10 Musselburgh (31st March) 

Just a quick note regarding a couple of debutantes in this four-runner race. Probably nothing to get too excited about here although worth noting that Richard Fahey and Mark Johnston field a two-year-old that was originally earmarked for the Brocklesby Conditions Stakes. 

I Am A Dreamer was the sole Brocklesby entrant for Kingsley House Stables, which I would take as being significant. This son of Dream Ahead races in the ownership of M Doyle and 62,000G yearling purchase. The stable have had a couple of two-year-olds start short odds so far but no winners as yet. This February foal is priced 6/4 on the tissue market. 

As detailed, Bengali Spirit was one of three juveniles entered for the Brocklesby Stakes. Their sole runner Wasntexpectingthat was fancied at 7/2 and ran on to finish third place. With the stable having three entrants you have to consider how they fare to one another. In general, the Brocklesby entry is a fair sign of ability for Fahey. This British-bred son of Garswood [pictured] cost 24,000 euros at the yearling sales. 

Both worthy of watching today and for the future.
