Four yearling bonuses won at Thirsk and Ascot

FOUR Racing Post Yearling Bonuses were paid out in quick succession early on Friday to winners of maiden races at Thirsk and Ascot.

The Sleeping Indian colt O'Gorman landed his owners, the We Haven't Told The Wives Syndicate, a £10,000 Racing Post Yearling Bonus in the 5f maiden at Thirsk on Friday.

Bred by Whitsbury Manor Stud and trained by Kevin Ryan, he was bought by Grove Stud for 60,000gns before being reoffered at the Goresbridge breeze-up for €63,000.

Out of the Efisio mare Harryana, he is a half-brother to Mill Reef Stakes and Super Sprint winner Temple Meads and to the Group 3-placed juvenile Sneak Preview.

His sire registered a first Group winner this month when Night Carnation landed the Coral Charge Sprint Stakes at Sandown.

At Ascot, the David Simcock-trained Hello Glory also broke her duck on her second start to collect the £10,000 bonus. Owned by A & A, the filly is by Zamindar out of the Tate Gallery mare Affair Of State. Hello Glory is her 15th foal and is closely related to Listed-winning juvenile Bilbury Flyer.

Bred by Baydon House Stud, she was sold to Blandford Bloodstock for 25,000gns at Book 2 of the TattersallsOctober Sale.

Caledonian Spring picked up a bonus in the second race at Ascot. He is trained by Paul D'Arcy and this was his fourth start having finished mid-division in the Windsor Castle Stakes at Royal Ascot.

He is the first foal of the Mark Of Esteem mare Mathuna, a winning juvenile in France. He cost 20,000 at the Goffs Orby sale as a yearling and £50,000 at their Kempton breeze-up.

A fourth bonus went to connections of Alabanda after the Tim Easterby-trained filly scored on her fifth start in the 7f fillies' maiden. The daughter of Camacho is a sister to another juvenile winnner, Camacho Queen.

Alabanda was bred by Yeomanstown Stud and bought by her trainer for just £9,000 at the DBS Premier Yearling sale.
