Goodwood payout for Channon's Yojimbo

THE Mick Channon-trained Yojimbo became the second winner of a Racing Post Yearling Bonus on Saturday when breaking his maiden over 7f at Goodwood.

Unlike the day's earlier bonus winner, €2,200 yearling buy Naseem Sea, Yojimbo was a relatively expensive purchase, selling to Gill Richardson on behalf of owners Jon and Julia Asblitt for £65,000 at the DBS St Leger Yearling Sale. However, that represented a marked rise in value from the 9,500gns it took to retain the son of Aussie Rules as a foal.

Bred by Peter Kelly and Wendy Daly in Ireland, Yojimbo is a half-brother to 6f winner Versaki and out of Mythie, a 10f-winning Octagonal half-sister to French Listed winner Mytographie.
