Highflyer Bloodstock

Once again for the third consecutive year, a Million in Mind-owned horse realised 6 figures at the annual end of season dispersal sale at DBS. This year Pain Au Chocolat fetched £135,000 and will now be trained by Dan Skelton. Hopes are high that he can emulate the Alan King/Million in Mind horse who was sold for £100,000 through the same DBS ring in May 2013. That was Uxizandre who subsequently won a Grade 1 novices’ chase at Aintree in 2014 and the Grade 1 RyanAir Chase at the 2015 Cheltenham Festival.
