Notable return
for fledgling stud

THE eight-year-old Peintre Celebre mare Cooden Beach was bought for just 5,000gns at the 2005 Tattersalls December Sale by Peter and Sally Hunt, who had set up Sparsholt Stud two years earlier.

Three years on, as the dam of this season's Gimcrack Stakes winner Shaweel she was sold for 170,000gns to an American client of Charlie Gordon-Watson from Reid Coulter's Blueblood Stud.

"It is not a great year to sell but it was the right time to sell her and she went for about what I expected," said Coulter.
