Lot 22 - Salt Of The Earth (IRE)

Purchaser: Laura Morgan Racing.
Price: £55,000


Review: This big and scopey gelding made a novicey mistake and unseated Will Biddick on his debut at Kimble last month, but he ticked all the boxes at Barbury Racecourse on Sunday. He had the pacemaker covered when that rival fell at the end of the back straight, and with neat jumps at the next two fences had only to be pushed out to score. The runner-up, a €35,000 store by Presenting, came from a top stable and is sure to win before long – the pair were clear of the remainder. Salt Of The Earth comes from a top stable himself, and will have been well educated. He comes from the first crop of his sire – a son of Galileo and the top-class racemare Balisada – his dam was a half-sister to two winners and the classy performers Dempsey and Coole River are further down the page.
