Aston Mullins home bred MAKE BELIEVE (Makfi) has provided the stud with its first Classic success when storming the field to win the French 2000 Guineas yesterday. The handsome Bay out of ROSIE’S POSY broke well and led from the start to win by three lengths from New Bay, also trained by Andre Fabre. Make Believe has been a record setter for Aston Mullins since the beginning being the highest price foal sold by the stud at auction. He was offered for sale at the Tattersalls December Foal sale in 2012 where he impressed Prince Faisal and connections who purchased the colt for 180,000GNS.

The longest standing member of the Aston Mullins team, ABBEY PRINCE, has won his first attempt at a Horse Of the Year Show qualifier with Millie Hope! While this isn’t the usual scene for most of us here on the farm in is nonetheless an exciting achievement and we all look forward to the party at the HOYS in Birmingham in October where he will hopefully put in another regal performance.
It is with delight that we can say our recent trip to the August Yearling Sale at Arqana in Deauville was successful! The yearling by BATED BREATH ex CAT O’ NINE TAILS was knocked down to Charles Gordon-Watson for the sum of €90,000
This filly is a fine example of a thoroughbred, with a powerful engine, a good head and an athletic walk. We wish her new owners all the best and look forward to following her career on the racetrack.
