Plans to focus on the potential of young horses that pass through Yorton has resulted in the establishment of a new company.

Tridynion Ltd was set up in December and involves three directors, namely James Potter, Dave Futter and George Stanners, a trio with considerable experience of business in general and bloodstock and racing in particular. Reflecting the number of company founders is the name Tridynion, which is Welsh for three men. The company will be taking particular interest in recruiting horses by Yorton sires, but has shown it is not averse to buying stock by outside stallions when the right horse becomes available, either privately or in the sales ring. Breeding, raising and producing winners is a theme at Yorton, and the creation of Tridynion clarifies that area of the stud’s work.

Stanners says: “Tridynion will hold a small number of selected, well-bred, good quality young Jump-bred horses who will be for sale. Depending on each horse they may be offered to the market as loose-schooled yearlings or two-year-olds, potentially at the developing Yorton Sale held in September each year and run by Goffs UK.

“Alternatively they could be sold as three-year-old stores or after showing form in races.

“We will only source horses we believe will have the potential to be successful on the race-course, and they will be open to any viewing at Yorton throughout the year.” Tridynion has already appeared on a sales sheet having bought an €82,000 yearling by leading French stallion No Risk At All at Arqana in November. He is a close relative of Champion Hurdle winner Epatante (No Risk At All), having been foaled by her half-sister, the winner hurdler Tante Sissi.

Stanners says: “That particular yearling is typical of the type of horse Tridynion will be sourcing. He is very well bred, and he will benefit hugely from time spent at Yorton, where he will receive the right education.”

As Futter says: “Making horse ownership accessible to everyone and encouraging people – be they novices or familiar with the industry – to get involved and enjoy the thrill of owning a potential winner is part of Yorton’s ethos.”

It is also Tridynion’s.
