A tough sort who always tries his hardest, Elmono already has Black Type having been placed in a Listed hurdle in France and he ran well to be placed on all four starts for us over hurdles this summer. We were keen to retain him at the recent Goffs’ Sale at Doncaster, and were successful in the auction. He has shown at home that he has the scope for novice chasing and has schooled over fences. He is for sale for £35,000 (plus VAT) to cover his sales expenses, transport home and training to date. We have some nice targets for him in the Autumn and I would expect him to win back some of his purchase price early on for his new owners.
