Independent Bloodstock Agent Armando Duarte & MM Stables Racing Manager Talks Horses 2022

Hi Craig there is a few words like you asked. 

2021 was a good year on the track for MMSTABLES, with ALENQUER winning at sandown derby trial G3 , then winning at royal ascot G2 then a gallant 2nd in G1 Judmonte International behind the highest rated racehorse in the world. 
Also we had a 2 year old I bought at the breeze ups for quite a bit of money named Maglev rated 102 before we sold him well at the horses in training October sales in Newmarket to America, and he since finished a great 2nd in a stakes race on his first start for his new connections and we wish them the best of luck with him.
Last year sales once again hard to buy but we manage to buy 2 yearlings even with a huge budget I had I only bought those 2. I could bought a lot more for the sake of it but I want to look after my clients and spend their money like was my own. Not a bad statistic having 2 horses in training and both being rated above 100 and stakes horses. 

At the sales last year, I bought a Fast Company colt at Doncaster premier sales for £80.000 and a Saxon warrior colt for £120.000 at Book 1 Tattersalls in Newmarket. 

I really like the Fast Company colt at the moment, he is doing everything very well and easy. Great mover and great head too. Hopefully he can make Royal Ascot. 

The Saxon Warrior first season runners but I like him too , easy mover but he will more backend season and 3 year old campaign in mind but he is doing everything we ask him. 

Both will go to William Haggas

We will keep you updated with the names of these two horses. 

Regarding plans for ALENQUER we haven’t made any plans for him, he's cantering steady at the moment. We hope he got stronger through the winter and improved too. He is already a good horse but if he could improve 2 lengths from 3 to 4 he could be very competitive at the highest level. There is some valuable races abroad so we have that in mind but also we would like him to win a G1 in UK then hopefully make him a stallion. 

Great times ahead .
