Second win on the bounce for promising British 2yo

Schumer Bloodstock purchase Summeronsevenhills again looked a colt to follow in Britain when the impressive winner of a Wolverhampton nursery on Thursday.

It was the second win on the bounce for the Summer Front colt, who is beginning to rocket through the ratings for trainer Richard Hughes.

Summeronsevenhills was one of the highlights of the Tattersalls Ascot Breeze-Up Sale when sold by Johnny Collins’ Brown Island Stables for £85,000 to Blandford Bloodstock and Richard Hughes.

The colt had been previously purchased privately with Schumer Bloodstock for a fraction of that price after failing to sell at last year’s Keeneland September Sale.

“He’s been a very uncomplicated horse and hasn’t put a foot wrong since he came to us,” Collins told The Racing Post at the time.

“All the good judges seemed to like him and liked his breeze, he’s a horse with a great big action.

“I saw a lot of Summer Fronts at the yearling sales and loved them. I have another very good one going to Doncaster.”

That Doncaster colt in question, also bought as a yearling with Schumer Bloodstock, turned out to be debut winner Outragusanddangerus.

From the first crop of Summer Front, Summeronsevenhills is the third foal out of Iboughtheranyway, a Dixie Union daughter of G2 Alcibiades Stakes winner Westerly Breeze.

He was part of a group this spring from Brown Island Stables that also included the unbeaten G3 Horris Hill Stakes winner Kenzai Warrior, who was bought for just $6,000 through Schumer Bloodstock as a yearling.

Other recent highlights of the Collins – Schumer axis include Syphax, a $25,000 yearling into €100,000 2yo who was sold to Godolphin following his win in the G3 Acomb Stakes, his half-brother Es’Hail, a high-class colt in Qatar, and Spring Mile winner High Aclaim.
