INTRODUCTION In 2018, horses carrying the USA suffix have won in 29 Group races in the leading racing countries in Europe, Asia, Australia, and Dubai, including Roaring Lion, purchased for $160,000 at the 2016 Keeneland September Yearling Sale, winning the Coral-Eclipse S. (Gp.1) and the Juddmonte International S. (Gp.1) for Qatar Racing. Our Association works closely with vital stakeholders including Keeneland, Fasig-Tipton, the Consignors & Commercial Breeders Association, the Kentucky Breeders’ Incentive Fund and the Thoroughbred Owners & Breeders Association to communicate the success of our horses worldwide via the “US-Bred” campaign. The yearlings on offer at Keeneland in September and Fasig-Tipton this October include the largest market for Kentucky breeders, who are responsible for producing 40% of the American foal crop. The Keeneland sale also features the cream of North American breeding from Canada, Florida, New York and beyond. European pinhookers have often landed great value during this sale. Indeed, US-Bred horses made up 7 of the 10 top lots at the 2018 Tattersalls Craven Sale, and 6 out of 10 of the top lots at the 2018 Arqana Deauville Breeze-up sale. It has been the progeny of mares bred in Kentucky, coupled with our world-leading selection of stallions, that has been central to that success. Whilst we live in transformative times, the American economy has strongly rebounded from the Global Financial Crisis, and the business model for American racing provides a real depth of prize money which has facilitated a return to record racetrack earnings as well as premiums for stallion and broodmare prospects owned by European interests. As Joe Seitz wrote last year, we look forward to seeing you in Kentucky.

KENTUCKY �

rom the ludicrously picturesque Keeneland Racecourse, with its park-like grounds that lend it a distinctly European feel, to the miles of pristine white fencing criss-crossing its rolling hills that bely its true significance to the global racing industry, Lexington looks like it’s leapt from the pages of a fairy tale – albeit one with a multi-million dollar backstory. While neighbouring Louisville basks in the glory of hosting America’s most iconic race, the Kentucky Derby – the “greatest two minutes in sport” – for two weeks a year, it is on Lexington that the spotlight of the bloodstock world falls for the Keeneland September Yearling Sale. The largest sale of its kind in the world, more than 2,500 thoroughbreds are sold over 13 days for a total of $300,000,000.

The importance of the sale has long been recognised by U.S. trainers. But increasingly, Europeans are flocking to America in the hopes of bagging a future champion. Call it the Scat Daddy Effect, if you will: the exploits of several of his progeny at Royal Ascot in recent years, including Caravaggio and Lady Aurelia, who boast four Royal Ascot wins between them, and Sioux Nation, have fuelled the fashion for American-bred horses on this side of the pond. And the cream of the North American crop can be found at Keeneland. The current European poster boy for the sale is this year’s Eclipse and Juddmonte International winner, Roaring Lion. The son of Kitten’s Joy was spotted by David Redvers and purchased for Qatar Racing for $160,000. But long before the latest American import

roared into the record books, Keeneland alumni have been making their mark on some of Europe’s most prestigious races, as well as those further afield. “You have the likes of Mendelssohn ($3 million in 2016), who won the UAE Derby this year, Order Of St George ($550,000 in 2013), who won the Ascot Gold Cup, and Roly Poly, who is another graduate of our sale who was very busy last year. So we’ve had some pretty good success in Europe in recent times,” says Geoffrey Russell, Keeneland’s Director of Sales Operations. Perhaps this should come as no surprise: as well as producing its fair share of Kentucky Derby winners, the sale has thrown up no fewer than five Epsom Derby winners since its inception in 1936. Yet the Keeneland Sale remains somewhat extrinsic, even among the European cognoscenti. One of the handful of British trainers who routinely braves the journey across the Atlantic is multiple Group 1-winning trainer Robert Cowell. For him, the appeal of Keeneland comes down to one factor: speed. “We’re looking for speedy animals, fastlooking two-year-olds to run as twoyear-olds,” he explains. “The American pedigree is very much a speed-orientated pedigree and can bring that to the European market,” echoes Russell. But Europeans looking to snap up a bargain at the sales will need to have patience. “I’ll be there from Book 3 to the beginning of Book 6,” says Cowell, referring to the less illustriously-bred stock that makes

I’m sure there will be instances when some sires have a statistic that says they go on mainly dirt. Then the English don’t buy them and then the Americans run them only on dirt. So actually, it’s only a lack of trying on turf. I believe as long as they’re good movers, nice, stocky well-balanced horses, they should handle both.” - Robert Cowell up the bulk of the second week of the sale. “You’ve got to have a lot of patience because there’s a lot of rubbish that comes through and then there’s a few gems that suddenly appear.” One such gem is Pocket Dynamo. Hammered down for just $35,000, Pocket Dynamo just missed out by a nose in the Group 2 Norfolk Stakes at this year’s Royal Ascot. He has since been acquired by global investment fund Phoenix Thoroughbreds and will be aimed at the new Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint. But what of the commonly-held conception that American horses are bred to run solely on dirt; that, when it comes to racing, Britain and America are two countries divided by a surface? According to Cowell, more often than not, the difference between dirt and turf performers is less than meets the eye: “I’m sure there will be instances when some sires have a statistic that says they go on mainly dirt. Then the English don’t buy them and then the Americans run them only on dirt. So actually, it’s only a lack of trying on turf. I believe as long �

� as they’re good movers, nice, stocky well-balanced horses, they should handle both.” “There’s still plenty of grass and European influence in our pedigrees here,” opines Evan Ferraro, Recruiting and Marketing Manager at Fasig-Tipton. “I think Europeans typically like a different type of horse that suits their racing rather than a big, strong, rough coarse American dirt horse. There’s stuff that has been proven over there that our mares still produce physically, and they’ve had success with in Europe.” Located across town from Keeneland, Fasig-Tipton is the second largest sales company by market share in North America, after Keeneland itself. Their annual yearling sale in October Tom Goff offers Europeans another bite at the American cherry. “The October sale is the last yearling sale of the year in North America and it’s kind of a bit of everything all in one big book,” says Ferraro. Notable Fasig-Tipton graduates include Seattle Slew, Genuine Risk and Dancing Brave. Certainly, canny European bloodstock agents have long recognised the value of American bloodlines. “The perception

I think Europeans typically like a different type of horse that suits their racing rather than a big, strong, rough coarse American dirt horse. There’s stuff that has been proven over there that our mares still produce physically, and they’ve had success with in Europe.” - Evan Ferraro is that, because of the enormous investment made by the Maktoum family over the last 30 years, and also because of the extremely successful sire base that is centred around Coolmore, all the fire power is in Europe. I don’t think that’s necessarily the case,” says Tom Goff of leading bloodstock agent Blandford Bloodstock. Goff has been attending the Keeneland sales for more than a decade. In that time, few horses have been as successful for his operation as Elusive Kate. Despite carrying the blood of the great Secretariat in her veins, the Elusive Quality filly was snapped up for a modest for $70,000. She went on to win four Group 1s in Europe, including

the Falmouth Stakes and the Prix Marcel Boussac. “There is some value over there,” says Goff, with no small degree of understatement. “Certainly, my business partner and I are very keen to go there because we think you can buy a lot of quality, well-bred horses and not always at a huge premium. People buying in sterling and spending in dollars can save some money in the later books and buy some reasonably priced horses. But obviously there’s a lot of quality available in Book 1 and Book 2 as well.” It’s a theme that Cowell also touches on: “It’s a little bit about the exchange rate. But I think it is better value simply because I don’t have the competition bidding against me that I would here in England. For the same horse, there might be ten to 12 bidders [in Europe] rather than just one or two there.” Cowell forms part of a cadre of European trainers including Gosden, Mark Johnston, David Lanigan, Aiden and Joseph O’Brien and Sir Mark Prescott who have flexed formidable purchasing power in Keeneland in recent years. But if the bulk of European trainers have sometimes been relatively slow to buy into the American dream, pinhookers have not. Pinhooking – the system of buying a young horse to sell on for profit – is a practice that takes its name from the tobacco fields of – where else? – Kentucky and describes a speculator who would buy up a farmer’s young plants and later identify them with a pinned note at market. Keeneland has proved happy hunting ground for pinhookers seeking to capitalise on the relative precocity of the American thoroughbred; a trait that makes them particularly suitable for pre-training then selling on as two-year-olds. Malcolm Bastard has been consigning horses for more than three decades, identifying youngsters from around the world and bringing them back to his pre-training yard in Wiltshire, where he prepares them for the European breeze-up sales. “You’re looking for a nice, straightforward horse with a pedigree that would suit in Europe, and by a stallion that people can relate to, that you can re-sell and that’s sensible value for money,” he explains. Keeneland has proved a particularly happy hunting ground. “Their horses look a little bit more forward than ours. Some of them are a little bit more solid. But there’s no hard and fast rules. You just have to see if the horses suit you and if the price suits you.”

Willie Browne

I think down through the years we’ve found that there’s better value there than there is in Europe. There’s such a variation of tracks in Europe so that makes the American horse quite attractive.” - Willie Browne Cashel-based pinhooker Willie Browne, a 20-year veteran of the Keeneland sales, agrees. “Basically it’s something different. I think down through the years we’ve found that there’s better value there than there is in Europe. There’s such a variation of tracks in Europe so that makes the American horse quite attractive.” Unlike Cowell, Brown is not afraid to splash the cash in the first week of the sale. “You need to have your first books at least looked at because there’s always a chance, if you have done your homework, of getting something that falls through the cracks.” As the market for top-class thoroughbreds becomes increasingly global, it’s reasonable to expect to see more and more American imports strutting their stuff on the hallowed turf of Europe. It’s a manifest destiny that Keeneland is happy to embrace. “The European market is important to us and we’ve been fortunate enough to have great support from Europe – England and Ireland but also France and the rest of continental Europe as well,” says Russell. “The success of the American-bred horse, both in Europe and throughout the world, is of benefit John Gosden to everybody in Europe.”

From the town of Cashel in County Tipperary, Ireland, at Lyonstown Stud, sprang a horse that launched a breeding operation for Canadian entrepreneur Frank Stronach and has left an unmistakable mark on thoroughbred racing.

THE LEGACY OF

A SIRE OF SIRES aced, like his sire and dam before him, by Robert Sangster, El Prado was trained on the holy ground of Ballydoyle by the incomparable Vincent O’Brien. A son of Sadler’s Wells, in his day the leading sire in Great Britain and Ireland a record 14 times, El Prado caught the attention of bloodstock agent Dermot Carty. Sadler’s Wells entered stud in 1985 to immediate success. Over time, he became the sire of 294 stakes winners, including 14 individual Irish Classic winners, 12 Classic winners in England, and three Classic winners in France.

But it was El Prado, foaled in 1989 from the brilliant Lady Capulet, that would travel his talents to North America and find a home in Kentucky as the stud who made Stronach’s Adena Springs an award-winning force in racing. Charles O’Brien, an assistant to his father, trainer Vincent O’Brien, when El Prado was racing, looks back fondly on the young horse. “He was not a very typical Sadler’s Wells and didn’t look like him,” recalled O’Brien. “Most of them were bay with white points, and he was grey and bigger and more substantial. Many were quite light-framed, but

he was a big, heavy horse. He wasn’t the two-year-old type but he had such a good constitution that we just kept moving him up in his work, and he thrived on it and just kept going, although he didn’t really have the physique of a sharp two-yearold,” said O’Brien. But familiarity through the bloodlines struck a chord and despite physical appearances, O’Brien knew that El Prado had a genetic right to be good young. “We knew him well from scratch. He was out of a very good filly, Lady Capulet, which won the Irish Guineas first time out. We knew him all his life,” said O’Brien. Blessed by pedigree, El Prado is a half-brother to Irish champion Entitled. El Prado made six starts in his juvenile campaign, including a score at first asking and a next-out win in the Group 3 John J. Long Memorial Stakes. In his third career start, the Group 3 Anglesey Stakes, he came up against a monster in St. Jovite, who denied a stubborn El Prado by a desperate neck. St. Jovite went on to win the Futurity en route to sharing year-end championship honours with El Prado. A year later, St. Jovite would win the Irish Derby. Keeping El Prado, a horse already considered not your typical juvenile racing prospect, in form, however, was proving to be something of an issue. If anything, that narrow loss to St. Jovite may have been the race to bring El Prado to top form. On September 7, 1991, El Prado made his Group 1 debut in the National Stakes at the Curragh. With Lester Piggott up, El Prado was expected to win, which he did by a halflength over Nordic Brief. “The Group 1 National was his peak. It was very typical for him. He wasn’t a flashy horse; it was very much a grind for him. He wasn’t the type to quicken away in a matter of strides but he’d just grind other horses down through sheer power,” offered O’Brien. El Prado finished out his juvenile season with a win in the Group 2 Beresford Stakes in Ireland.

El Prado’s three-year-old campaign � El Prado with Lester Piggott winning the didn’t pan out as desired. From National Stakes at three starts, he mustered a fifth in the Curragh, 1991 the Group 3 Scottish Classic at Ayr and failed to impress in consecutive Group 1 tries in France. “His first run back as a three-year-old was obviously disappointing,” admitted O’Brien. “We thought we had him back to somewhere near his best but he didn’t show any spark. It makes it that much more special to know (my father) had trained both parents and then him. That adds a bit of extra to it.”

El Prado’s racing career had come to a close, but his true calling was about to begin. In 1993, Dermot Carty, equine consultant, bloodstock agent, and the man responsible for Stronach’s Adena Springs North location, asked longtime friend and associate Edward Daly to provide a list of potential stallion prospects from the Sadler’s Wells line. Daly sent three names, including that of El Prado. On paper, the horse’s two-year-old form was exceptional, but a closer analysis of his family line found many threads worth pulling. �

THE KENTUCKY RACING & SALES SUPPLEMENT 2018 El Prado winning the Beresford Stakes at the Curragh

� “I started my research by going to Kentucky to speak to one of my mentors, Tom Gentry,” said Carty. “Tom had a great understanding of Fr a n k pedigrees and had bred Terlingua (the S tr o n a c h dam of Storm Cat), War and Peace, Pancho Villa, Royal Academy, and many more.” Gentry’s analysis of El Prado, out of the grey Lady Capulet (by Sir Ivor, another horse trained by Vincent O’Brien), found that bringing the horse to North America might have precedent. “Tom told me that El Prado had more of an American pedigree and when I asked him why, he said, ‘Well, Lady Capulet’s brother is a horse called Drone, who stood at Claiborne Farm and was very successful,’” smiled Carty. Carty, in addition to his own keen eye, knew that the knowledge of the veteran horsemen that came before him was priceless and reached out to another friend and mentor in Arthur Stollery. At the time of Carty’s research, Stollery had two Drone mares on hand and Carty simply had to know why. “He said, ‘Speed, unbelievable speed,’” recalled Carty with a shake of the head. Carty recognized the potential, but was there opportunity? He started to dig up all the information he could on his budding stallion prospect and the people who owned him. From this he gleaned that El Prado “was a brilliant two-year-old but he was not typical of the Sadler’s Wells.”

C har

l e s O ’ B ri e n

D er m o t C a r t y

He was a bigger horse with lots of bone on him and traced back to his mother, and Drone came back up. “Further to this,” continued Carty, “I was aware that he didn’t train on because he didn’t like the vanning and he didn’t like to fly. In the particular year he was co-twoyear-old champion with St. Jovite, who was trained by my pal Jim Bolger. Jim indicated to me that he was a very good horse. So, I actually had a very good background from Jim, Tom Gentry, and Art Stollery as to what I might be looking at.” The evaluation process spanned four months, and it seemed a sale was far from happening until a strange whisper reached him from overseas. “I got wind that the stallion operation owned by the ownership of El Prado didn’t like grey horses for stallions at that particular time, and El Prado was grey,” smiled Carty. “I also got word that there was a chance there was a deal that had stalled to send the horse to India. So, I said to them, ‘I’ll give you one shot, with 24 hours to respond, but we have to have it signed and sealed that afternoon,’” recalled Carty. “We put together the agreement and faxed it over to Edward Daly and asked


15

him to get it signed. I put in the contract that as long as we had 50 percent of the horse we had total control, and I never thought they would have signed it, but they did.” Stronach didn’t have a facility to stand stallions at the time, so El Prado went to Brereton Jones’ Airdrie Stud in Kentucky before moving to Adena Springs in 1998. In hindsight, it’s easy to think that El Prado would have been met with a slew of owners lining up their mares, but that just wasn’t the case. “We thought we were in for a big year and boy were we in for a big surprise. No one wanted to hear anything about it,” grimaced Carty. “We started (standing El Prado) at $7,500 and went down to $2,500 just to get mares to go to him, because there was no interest from the general public because he was something new.” For the few who did breed to the horse came great success. “From his first crop, the whole thing changed, starting with Chindi,” smiled Carty. It was Gentry that did the mating that produced Chindi, out of the Alydar mare Rousing. A multiple graded stakes winner, Chindi became his sire’s first millionaire. Another first-crop standout was El Cielo, who won four Grade 3 stakes on the turf in California. The stakes winners began to flow and the interest, where none previously existed, grew. “He worked as we thought he might with his American-type pedigree that he would work with the American mares,” said Carty. “And it was all done by Frank buying mares off the track and putting them in foal and selling them with a season back to the stallion.”

� Kitten's Joy with Sarah and Ken Ramsey

El Prado became the first stallion to have graded stakes winners on turf, dirt, and synthetic. His progeny include the Eclipse Award-winning champion turf horse of 2004, Kitten’s Joy; 2005 Breeders’ Cup Mile winner Artie Schiller; multiple Grade 1 winner Borrego; and the increasingly brilliant Medaglia d’Oro, yet another multiple Grade 1 winner. “Did we know he was going to make it? No,” admitted Carty. “But when we went to see the first crop, they were stamped. They were strong, good-boned, and well put together. That was very important. “As time went by he proved himself beyond a shadow of a doubt. He was a game changer of the breed.” El Prado passed away at the age of 20 in 2009. “Unfortunately, (Adena) never ended up with a great son of El Prado, which is sad,” said Carty. “But It was important for Frank to get the foundation going with a major stallion on his own farm.”

Stronach’s inability to replace El Prado wasn’t from a lack of trying. In fact, Ken Ramsey – whose strong business acumen and stronger personality allowed him to build, and lucratively sell, a string of cellular telephone network franchises to the tune of $39 million – notes that when his Kitten’s Joy �

� was gobbling up graded stakes wins on the turf, Stronach’s advisers came calling. “Frank Stronach wanted to buy Kitten’s Joy to replace him (El Prado), and he made me many offers. The first offer was for half a million, after the first stakes win, and I said no,” recalled Ramsey. “I told him that I’d take $750,000 but he didn’t do it.” “The horse went out and won another stake so they came back and said I’ll take the horse for $750,000, and I said, ‘No, the price is now a million,’” said Ramsey. “Then he wins another stakes race, so they said, ‘I’ll take him for a million.’” Ramsey’s answer again came back in the negative. “The price is now a million and a half,” he stated firmly. At this point, Kitten’s Joy was dominating top flight American turf racing. From August 14 to October 30, the homebred attempted three Grade 1 events, winning twice before losing narrowly to Better Talk Now in the Breeders’ Cup Turf. “After he won another Grade 1, (Stronach) called back and said, ‘I’ll take him for million and a half,’ but I said, ‘No, it’s now two and a half.’ But he wouldn’t take it,” grinned Ramsey. “Then he goes and wins the Joe Hirsch, just devastated the field, and they called back a fifth time and asked what it would take to buy the horse and I said, ‘I’m sorry, he’s no longer for sale.’” Ramsey noted that, “Kitten’s Joy put both Dale Romans and myself on the map. We started Kitten’s Joy on the dirt and no good. Next time out he went to the turf, and it was a completely different horse.” Roaring Lion beating Saxon Warrior in the Coral-Eclipse at Sandown Park in July 2018

“He’s now five consecutive years the leading turf sire and one year was the leading general sire. He’s been in the top four for several years on the general sire list,” added Ramsey. Before the start of the 2018 breeding season, Ramsey sold an interest in Kitten’s Joy to John Sikura’s Hill ‘n’ Dale Farms, where he now stands for $60,000 live foal. Alongside two of El Prado’s grandsons – Violence ($35,000 fee) and Atreides ($5,000) who are themselves both sons of Medaglia d’Oro. “It’s very gratifying and gives us a sense of pride and satisfaction,” said Ramsey. “His legacy will be as one of the greatest turf sires of all time. He’ll go down in the history books.” In 2018 his European ‘poster boy’ has been the dual Group 1 winner Roaring Lion who was purchased from the Taylor Made Farms 2016 consignment at Keeneland September sales by David Redvers on behalf of Qatar Racing for $160,000.

To properly appreciate El Prado’s significance in North America and beyond, one need look no further than Medaglia d’Oro, who was not only a great racehorse but has also become one of the top sires in the world. Bought privately by Edmund Gann after breaking his maiden in his second start, Medaglia d’Oro put together a race record of eight wins and seven seconds from 17 starts, banking in excess of $5.7 million dollars and winning three major US Grade 1 events: the Travers Stakes, Whitney Handicap, and Donn Handicap. �

� Medaglia d’Oro, purchased for stud duty by Audrey Haisfield’s Never Tell Farm, retired to Hill ‘n’ Dale in 2005 for an initial fee of $35,000. He moved to Haisfield’s Stonewall Stallions in time for the 2006 breeding season. His first crop, just like those of El Prado and Sadler’s Wells before him, was wildly successful, producing a number of stakes winners including the brilliant Rachel Alexandra, the 2009 Horse of the Year. Following that success, Medaglia d’Oro was purchased by Sheikh Mohammed’s Darley, where he now stands for a remarkable $250,000. The parade of prosperity continued for Medaglia d’Oro, through Grade 1 winner and champion Songbird and multiple Grade 1 winner Bolt d’Oro. Two of Medaglia d’Oro’s Australianbred and -raced sons have found their way to Kentucky for the Northern Hemisphere season: Ashford Studbased champion Vancouver, whose first U.S.-conceived foals arrived this year, and Astern, a Group 1 winner in Australia who has just stood his first season at Darley. In 2017, Medaglia d’Oro’s progeny included seven Grade 1 winners. Only Danzig, Mr. Prospector, and Storm Cat can stake a similar claim in America.

“Tapit is the ‘Top of the Pops’ at $300,000 and then you have War Front and Medaglia d’Oro a joint second at $250,000. He’s definitely climbing his way up there and has been in the top three for quite a while now. He’s had G1 winners in Europe, Australia, and the U.S. on both surfaces,” noted Fox. “When you can get your progeny to as many markets and buyers as possible it’s a positive thing for commercial breeders trying to sell. The more prospective buyers you have, the more you can get.” Medaglia d’Oro progeny have simply dominated US sales this year. At the Keeneland January Sale, his 6-year-old daughter Mrs McDougal was the sale-topper at $1.6 million. At the breeze-up sales his two top 2yo’s both sold for $1.2 million, one co-topping the FasigTipton Gulfstream Sale and the other leading the way at the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic sale. Then this August, at the Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Select Yearling Sale, the overall sale-topping colt went for $1.35 million and the leading filly for $1.3m – both by Medaglia d’Oro.

In time, El Prado may become overshadowed by his more famous sons, but not many stallions can claim to have launched a racing empire in the way the unlikely grey paved the way for Stronach’s success.

With a year-round offering of important, rich races and plenty of incentives, there is no better time to consider buying into the American dream. hile assembling international fields has long been a hallmark of American racetracks, in recent years the red carpet has really been rolled out to European owners, inviting them to come and experience the best of what America offers. Foremost among big-money options in the United States is the Breeders’ Cup World Championships, which this year will be held at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky. on Friday, November 2 and Saturday, November 3 and offers total purses of $30 million. Breeders’ Cup Limited is especially focused on attracting international horses, and its incentives are outstanding. Breeders’ Cup offers a plethora of qualifying races, or “Win and You’re In” opportunities around the world, in its Breeders’ Cup Challenge Series, which this year has grown to 85 contests. Newly created for this year’s edition is the $1 million Juvenile Turf Sprint, a 5-½ furlong dash for 2-year-olds scheduled for Nov. 2, which has been dubbed “Future Stars Friday” in reference to the emphasis on juveniles that day. Josh Christian, Senior Director of Racing & Nominations for Breeders’ Cup, who is headquartered in London for most of the year, has primary responsibility for recruiting European runners for the Challenge and Championship races, and has been hugely successful in getting record numbers of horses to ship stateside.

We’re offering $12 million in purse money just for turf Championship races, and we’re focused on giving all owners who send their horses to the US to compete a wonderful time, including hotel and car accommodations.” - Josh Christian, Senior Director of Racing & Nominations for Breeders’ Cup

“We’re offering $12 million in purse money just for turf Championship races,” said Christian. “And we’re focused on giving all owners who send their horses to the US to compete a wonderful time, including hotel and car accommodations.” Owners of all Championship starters that are based in Europe will receive a $40,000 travel award, while horses that have won a Challenge race can expect an automatic starting position in the corresponding Championship race, and pre-entry and entry fees paid. Another important advantage for European owners is that all foals sired by stallions that have been nominated to the Breeders’ Cup, and stand outside of North America, are automatically nominated and eligible to the Breeders’ Cup. This eliminates the costly supplemental fees that owners have had to pay in the past for a horse that was not Breeders’ Cup nominated as a foal. Speaking of Churchill Downs, it presents one of the most popular races in the world each spring when 3-year-olds go to the post in the Kentucky �

� Derby, and over the last few years management has made serious overtures to European and Asian owners to participate in the “Run for the Roses.” After creating the popular “Japan Road to the Kentucky Derby,” Churchill Downs unveiled the new “European Road to the Kentucky Derby” last year. It is a stand-alone series of seven races that is separate from America’s 35-race “Road to the Kentucky Derby” sequence. One position in the Kentucky Derby starting gate is awarded to the horse that accrues the most points. In addition to pushing the Derby name every weekend to markets across the world, the European Road to the Derby also added wagering intrigue, which translated to more dollars on Derby Day itself. “The impetus for creating the European Road to the Derby came after we announced the Japan Road to the Derby,” said Mike Zeigler, executive director of racing at Churchill Downs. “I Mike Zeigler was in Ireland two years ago and while at Coolmore I was asked, ‘When will the European Road to the Derby start?’ The major players in Europe showed great interest from the start, and we worked on it over the winter, identifying the right races and the right partners to promote it, and then announced its creation late last summer. It soon got a life of its own, and we got nominations immediately.”

The reputation and the prestige of having a horse in the Kentucky Derby helped generate solid participation in the European Road to the Derby series, with Churchill Downs awarding julep cups and bourbon to the first four finishers in each of the seven events. Perhaps the best advertisement of all was the amount of media attention that Derrick Smith, Mrs. John Magnier and Michael Tabor’s Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf (Grade I) champion Mendelssohn, trained by Aidan O’Brien, received after earning his slot in the 1¼ mile American Classic by winning the Group 2 UAE Derby. Mendelssohn kicked off his 2018 season by winning the Irish leg of the European Road to the Kentucky Derby, The Patton Stakes (L), on the all-weather track at Dundalk. The overall European Road to the Kentucky Derby series winner was Phoenix Thoroughbred Limited’s Gronkowski, who didn’t get to Kentucky after a minor setback. Gronkowski, however, redeemed himself with a second-place finish in the Classic Belmont Stakes (Grade I) in early June. Zeigler said that the 2018-19 European Road to the Derby race schedule was still being finalized at press time. An intriguing race set to debut in early autumn of 2019 is the revival of the Washington, DC International at Laurel Park in Maryland, a track that is under the umbrella of The Stronach Companies. First run in 1952 at Laurel, the International was the forerunner of the Breeders’ Cup Turf, with horses �

The Commissioner's Trophy (L) and The Arlington Million trophy

� competing from countries across Europe, including the Soviet Union. In its first 10 runnings, horses won from Venezuela, Australia, France, the United Kingdom, and the United States. It became known as one of the most prestigious turf races in the world, won by such stars as Bald Eagle, T. V. Lark, Kelso, Mongo, Sir Ivor, Fort Marcy, Dahlia, Droll Role and All Along. The creation of the Breeders’ Cup forced the International’s demise in 1994, but Sal Sinatra, vice president of the Maryland Jockey Club, said that the race’s popularity among Maryland fans has never waned. With $500,000 from the Maryland Lottery to help bring it back to life, Sinatra said the International is nearly certain to return, with possibly additional money added. “We’re definitely bringing it back, likely at 1½ miles,” said Sinatra. “We’d like to have it be only one representative horse per country, and are currently deciding the best way to do that. Also, we’re still talking about whether it will be a buy-in race, like the Pegasus at Gulfstream Park, or an invitational, and whether it will be for straight 3-year-olds or 3-year-olds and up. The older horse division is pretty saturated, so ideally it would be for 3-year-olds in September, positioned about five weeks before the Breeders’ Cup and an ideal prep race.” Sinatra said that Laurel would help pay for international runners to come over, as well as entry fees. The track would

likely hire agents to help with recruitment of European horses, and that Washington, DC would be an ideal spot for hospitality, as sightseeing would also be an attraction for owners. From Laurel Park, Washington DC is located only about 21 miles to the south, and the tourist sites in Baltimore, Md. are located about 20 miles to the north. At Arlington International Racecourse, every August, the welcome mat is out for European owners to come race at what most trainers have described as the best turf course in America. Howard Sudberry, the Chicago-area track’s Senior Director of Marketing and Communications, has been instrumental in attracting European owners to the International Festival of Racing offered by Arlington each season, which includes a trio of Grade 1 stakes: the Gr. 1 Arlington Million, the $600,000 Beverly D, and the $400,000 Secretariat Stakes. “Arlington’s success in attracting European horses goes back to the inception of the Arlington Million in 1981,” said Sudberry. “After the fire destroyed the track in 1985, it still ran the Million that same year using tents and temporary bleachers, and Great Britain’s Teleprompter, owned by Lord Derby, won. That started putting Arlington on the radar of the Europeans. And our turf course is an attraction itself, it’s one of our greatest assets.” Sudberry said that he and Arlington’s general manager Anthony R. Petrillo travel to England, France and Ireland each year to meet new people and to maintain established relationships. “I would say we treat horsemen and owners better than any other track in the country,” said Sudberry, who said the tradition was started with Arlington’s chairman Richard L. Duchossois. “For the Arlington Million, we assign an ambassador to each owner, who takes care of all their needs. The way they’re treated, the prestige the owners enjoy - the experience is really like no other.” Over the last few years, the New York Racing Association has been offering big event days that feature rich turf races, such as the three-day Belmont Stakes Racing Festival in June, the Stars & Stripes Festival at Belmont Park in early July, and Travers Day and Whitney Day in August at Saratoga. They’re all thanks to the leadership of Martin Panza, who joined NYRA in 2014 from now-defunct Betfair Sal Sinatra Hollywood Park in Inglewood, Calif.

While at Hollywood Park, Panza created the American Oaks, a prestigious turf race for 3-year-old fillies that earned a Grade-I ranking in its initial year of eligibility. He helped the American Oaks get its Grade 1 designation by recruiting horses from Europe, Asia and Australia, and luring a sponsor, American Airlines. Panza is especially proud of the development of NYRA’s turf programme for 2-year-olds, which began in mid-May and has become part of the Breeders’ Cup “Win and You’re In” programme by providing the winner of the Gr. 3, $150,000 Futurity, a six-furlong turf test set for October 7, with an automatic berth into the Juvenile Turf Sprint. Also that day, which falls about one month before the Breeders’ Cup, the Gr. 1, $500,000 Flower Bowl for fillies and mares at 1¼ miles on turf is scheduled. This autumn, Belmont Park is offering the Gr. 1, $500,000 Joe Hirsch Turf Classic at 1½ miles, as well as the Gr. 3, $200,000 Pilgrim Stakes for 2-yearolds at 11/16 miles, as part of Jockey Club Gold Cup Day September 29. On October 7, one month before the Breeders’ Cup, the Gr. 1, $500,000 Flower Bowl for fillies and mares at 1¼ miles on turf, as well as the aforementioned Futurity, will be contested. At Gulfstream Park, the world’s richest race, the $16 million, Gr. 1 Pegasus World Cup Invitational at 1⅛ miles, is set for January 29, 2019. It’s billed as a bold, new entertainment event that has captured global attention, with 12 spots in the starting gate available to owners who pay up to $1 million apiece as an entry fee. The entry fees contribute to the race’s purse, which is $7 million to the race winner, and the day’s profits on betting, food and beverage, and ticket sales are split among the owners in a unique race format.

THE CBA

Encouraging a fair marketplace for all who breed, buy, or sell thoroughbreds.

Thrilling. Challenging. Rewarding. Overwhelming. Ask anyone whose livelihood is tied to the world of thoroughbred sales, and all of those adjectives apply, depending on the day. Or the moment. Because the whole sales process can also be intimidating at times, it’s reassuring to find there’s actually an organization that represents all players – large and small. Located in Lexington, Kentucky, the Consignors and Commercial Breeders Association (CBA) is comprised of a far-reaching group of people who make their living in the thoroughbred breeding industry. The organisation was created to provide a unified voice of representation for the breeders and consignors who provide the horses that drive the industry. The CBA was launched in 2005 by a group of prominent consignors and breeders who believed the

thoroughbred industry could improve the way commerce was handled. They sought to do that by creating a nonprofit, dues-based organisation that would educate and promote unity. “If you look at the wine industry in California and Europe, the automotive industry and other trades, more often than not, unity brings about better trade. There is a cohesion of ideas and a progressive sharing of trade interests,” observes Joe Seitz, current CBA president. “There was a void where the people producing the product didn’t really have a voice. We wanted to have a seat at the table when issues came up regarding ethics and integrity, veterinary topics, sales company practices, regulatory entities, legislation, and even how sales companies design and lay out their sales and facilities,” explains Seitz. “This is a moving, fluid market, so we’re always needing to make things better for breeders, sellers and buyers.”

have the information they need to make knowledgeable, confident, buying decisions, everyone involved – breeder, consignor, sales company and buyer – benefits.

Several important initiatives lie at the core of the CBA. These include: • education • ethics and integrity • veterinary science issues • working directly with sales companies EDUCATION

The CBA works democratically on behalf of every consignor and commercial breeder, large and small, to provide representation and a constructive, unified voice related to sales issues, policies, and procedures. The association’s initiatives are designed to encourage a fair and expanding market place for all who breed, buy, or sell thoroughbreds.” The CBA has filled that void in a most productive manner. The organisation’s mission statement says it all: “The CBA works democratically on behalf of every consignor and commercial breeder, large and small, to provide representation and a constructive, unified voice related to sales issues, policies, and procedures. The association’s initiatives are designed to encourage a fair and expanding market place for all who breed, buy, or sell thoroughbreds.” That might sound ambitious, but the CBA has stepped up to the proverbial plate and become an educator, advocate, and representative for pretty much everyone who makes a living connected with the thoroughbred breeding business. Although the name does not refer to them, buyers are an integral part of the CBA’s mission. After all, when buyers

One highly successful project of the CBA is the “Plain and Simple” series of educational books, which clearly explain various aspects of the sales process and are available for free download from the CBA’s website. The booklets educate both buyers and sellers about key aspects of the public auction. “They’ve been requested all over the world and have been reprinted in multiple languages, even Japanese,” says Seitz. “We’ve also held three symposiums in Lexington that were well received and covered a myriad of topics important to anyone buying or selling thoroughbreds,” he says, adding that broadcasts are posted on the website. Additional educational efforts include the CBA’s quarterly online newsletter, as well as a monthly sales calendar email filled with sales deadlines and requirements designed to help breeders who are selling, as well as consignors. The CBA is also instrumental in spreading the word about the success of American-bred horses on the international scene via the U.S.-bred marketing programme. “America produces great horses and it’s �

� our job to help people realize that. We’re one of five organizations that contribute to this marketing campaign highlighting what U.S-bred horses have done, so people looking for next year’s runners will know to source our markets here,” says Seitz. It’s worth noting that six of the top ten highest-selling horses at the Tattersalls Craven Breeze Up sale in April 2018 were U.S.-bred, including the sale-topping Scat Daddy colt, who sold for 900,000 guineas. At the Arqana 2018 Deauville Breeze Up Sale in May, four of the top five best-selling juveniles were bred in the U.S., including another sale-topping Scat Daddy colt, this one selling for €825,000. Of course, what ultimately matters is how horses perform and U.S.-bred thoroughbreds have excelled on foreign soil. In 2017, there were 10 U.S.-bred grade one winners in Europe, Asia, Dubai and Australia, and 31 group winners. U.S-bred horses accounted for 44 group wins and 79 group placings last year. Recent standouts include Lady Aurelia, multiple group one winner who was named Cartier Champion Two-year-

old Filly (2016); and US Navy Flag, millionaire and multiple group one winner, who in 2017 became the first horse in 35 years to complete the Juddmonte Middle Park Stakes (Gr. 1) – Darley Dewhurst Stakes (Gr. 1) double, setting a new course record in the Dewhurst.

ETHICS AND INTEGRITY There can be no equal opportunity without a fair playing field and the CBA actively strives to promote ethical dealings in horse transactions. The organisation works with the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association’s (TOBA) Sales Integrity Task Force, which is charged with exploring all aspects of making sales as ethical as possible for everyone concerned. The CBA was involved with several initiatives in 2006 and 2007 in which Kentucky legislation found it unlawful to represent both buyer and seller unless both parties were notified in advance. “We joined the Coalition for Horse Racing Integrity in 2015,” says Seitz. “We also worked with Keeneland and Fasig-Tipton when they introduced the anabolic steroid testing policy in 2015, which was the first such policy in the world.” �

As in any industry, technology is advancing rapidly and provides opportunity to enhance trade. The CBA is currently exploring several initiatives to possibly streamline the veterinary process: videoendoscopy and a smartphone app for veterinarians to provide veterinary information for buyers during the sale in real time.” - Joe Seitz � Seitz points out that the organisation also feels an obligation to care for horses after their racing careers are over. To that end, the CBA works with sales companies and the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance.

VETERINARY SCIENCE It’s no surprise for an organisation focused on improving the sales process that veterinary issues consume a good deal of that focus. Gray Lyster chairs the CBA’s Veterinary Committee, which constantly works with members of the veterinary community on ways to provide information in a concise and timely manner, while at the same time presenting the horse in the best way possible. “As in any industry, technology is advancing rapidly and provides opportunity to enhance trade. The CBA is currently exploring several initiatives to possibly streamline the veterinary process: videoendoscopy and a smartphone app for veterinarians to provide veterinary information for buyers during the sale in real time,” says Seitz. Kerry Cauthen

“Veterinary science is ever changing,” he adds. “Breeders produce the horses and at the end of the day the veterinarians have a very important say in the sales process.”

SALES COMPANIES The CBA regularly works with the various sales companies discussing format, facility, repository and informational issues, working hand-in-hand with the companies to improve the overall sales process. Kerry Cauthen heads the Sales Issues Committee, which canvases the CBA to find out which topics are of concern to CBA members. For example, it’s important that showing areas at all barns across the sales grounds are consistent. It’s also crucial to make the repositories as user-friendly and interactive as possible for veterinarians, as this makes prepurchase exams more streamlined and efficient. “We’ve been very pleased with the cooperation and assistance we’ve received from the sales companies when we sit down to discuss issues and find common ground. They value and welcome our opinion,” notes Seitz. “We’ve been very encouraged by the reception.” Several topics that will help improve the entire sales experience are currently in discussion and in the process of being implemented as of this writing; details will be forthcoming.

WIDE MEMBERSHIP While the association is constantly soliciting feedback from buyers, most members are producers and sellers. Of course, there is overlap and there are currently several members on the board who are actively involved in both selling and buying, and can provide insight from both perspectives. One of these is Liz Crow, a bloodstock agent based in Lexington, who consigns under the name Elite Sales and buys under the name BSW Bloodstock. Crow was a CBA member for over a year before becoming part of the board this past spring. “The CBA is a great organisation to provide support for both sides (buyers and sellers),” says Crow. “You get representation with everyone coming together to discuss issues and many have a voice in getting policies changed. One consignor can’t get something

changed at Keeneland or Fasig-Tipton, but by getting 20 consignors together, you can get policies and issues shifted in the direction that would be good for everybody. Our main goal is to make our business stronger.” Crow is also pleased that the CBA constantly works with sale companies regarding veterinary issues. “They’re always trying to improve the veterinary work that goes on at sales, as far as what information is available to buyers that is also constructive for the sellers,” she notes. The CBA is open to suggestions about topics of concern and educational opportunities. Members are encouraged to share their thoughts by email. Horsemen can easily become members by going to the website, clicking the “Membership” tab and clicking on either the “breeder” or “consignor” form.

RUNNING HORSES IN AMERICA THE TR A INER’S PERSPECTI V E

n recent years, international travel has become much more accessible and people now regularly embark on journeys previously the reserve of a few trail-blazing adventurers. The same is true for racehorses, whose handlers can today chart careers based on a rich international programme that offers opportunities year-round. For European trainers, America is perhaps the most readily accessible intercontinental option, with fewer regulations to be negotiated than in Asia or Australia. The relatively reduced distance from Europe to the US also provides an incentive, especially if running in the east of the country. Ed Dunlop has been travelling horses to some of the world’s far-flung reaches for almost 20 years now and has consistently demonstrated his ability to get it right thanks to the success of horses such as Lailani, Ouija Board, Snow Fairy, and Red Cadeaux.

WHY AMERICA? There are lucrative and prestigious opportunities for all types of horses in America, notably in the Breeders’ Cup or the Fall Meet at Keeneland in Kentucky. Dunlop may have been steeped in racing from his earliest age thanks to the exploits of his now sadly departed father John, but sending horses to the US was a learning curve nonetheless. “One of my earliest experiences and successes in America was with a filly called Lailani. She won the Irish Oaks in July 2001 before we sent her to Belmont in New York for the Grade 1 Flower Bowl Stakes in September of the same year. She won that too, but then ran badly in the Breeders’ Cup Fillies and Mares, again at Belmont. I learnt a lot from her actually because we left her there after the Flower Bowl and I think that affected her performance. This helped us adapt our approach with Ouija Board, who provided us with some

our biggest days in America, winning two Breeders’ Cup Fillies and Mares in 2004 and 2005.” In 2001, a trip to the east coast of America still represented a serious logistical challenge and financial outlay for European runners, so one can understand Dunlop’s decision not to ship Lailani home between runs. Today, however, advances in transport and reductions in cost make flying visits a viable option. “If you look at someone like Aidan O’Brien, who is probably the most accomplished trainer in the world these days when it comes to travelling horses, he flies them in and out as if they were just travelling to the races down the road in a horsebox. That seems to be the best approach, though isn’t always possible depending on the destination.”

PREPARATIONS So scaling up the same practices employed for running a horse a few miles down the road can be a winning formula, but any international campaign will nonetheless require a certain amount of preparation and planning. How should a horse be prepared for international travel? And how might running in the US compare to Asia or Australia? “Travelling horses to America tends to be a lot more simple, as there aren’t lengthy quarantines to be negotiated for us on the UK end. When we send horses to America they are travelled fit, put in the barn and kept there apart from for exercise. Then they run and

come home soon after. From our experience, travelling to Australia or Japan is a lot more complicated, as both countries have very tough rules and normally around a month in quarantine is required. These regulations also affect what you can take feed-wise, so that has to be taken into account.” Sheer geography can also have a strong influence on where might be best for European trainers to launch an international campaign. “Travelling from the UK to America is not such a huge distance, if we’re talking about the east coast anyway, so that makes it all the easier. The further you fly a horse then the greater the cost, the more susceptible they are to travel sickness, and the more chance there is of incident along the way.”

THE JOURNEY Economy Class or Business Class? Anyone who has flown long haul will know the travel experience and level of service are strongly affected by budget and provider. The same is true when travelling horses. “The different classes available allow for different palette space allocations and service options. The more room you can have for your horses the better it is, so that they can get their heads down and move more naturally during transport. We normally work with Luck Greayer Horse Transport, who have UK bases in Newmarket and Lambourn. They have excellent people who travel with �

RISKS & RETURN

� the horses for us and are enormously important in the success of any number of horses travelling around the world. We speak with them and tell them our dates, then they get everything sorted in terms of transport, palette space, getting stables organised on the other end, and getting them home.” The services of reputable shipping companies with a proven track record can greatly ease the logistical and administrative burden of running a horse abroad. All this can be in vain, however, if the horse is excessively stressed by unfamiliar surroundings or its own particular preferences and quirks are not provided for during transit. This intimate knowledge of each individual animal and how to deal with the particular challenges of travel can only come from trusted and experienced staff, but recent changes to security regulations mean that horses’ grooms are now often unable to remain with their horses at all times during transit. “We have two of our people who travel with the horses, but rules now sometimes limit their access due to the space available on the plane. The shipping companies provide their own grooms and they do everything they can, but it’s not quite the same. Our travelling head lad Robin TrevorJones has been around the world with almost all of our travelling horses and has been absolutely integral to their success. Red Cadeaux, for example, would go into quarantine for Australia, then on to Hong Kong, and then occasionally to Japan, so Robin and the horse would be away for three to four months. That level of dedication and trust are invaluable, even for shorter trips.”

Having shaken up a horse’s routine during travel, settling into a new environment is the next challenge to be negotiated. ‘How a horse acclimatises really depends on the individual, how they travelled, if they manage to stay healthy. We test them on arrival to make sure everything’s in order with regard to their bloods. Some horses take it well and others don’t, but there are no fixed rules. We’ve had horses who didn’t bat an eyelid over the whole thing and others that just couldn’t handle it. We tend to have our horses fully prepared for when they arrive at their destination, so we don’t have to do a huge amount of work with them there, but this obviously depends on how far you’re travelling and what quarantine requirements there are. For America, it’s all relatively simple as long as they travel, eat, and relax.’’ Racehorses by their nature are always subject to accident and injury, be it in the stable, the paddock, in transit, or at the races. Longer journeys can of course increase the likelihood of incident, however. So does the return from such ambitious plans tend to outweigh the risk? “Travel sickness, training problems, difficult ground conditions, training or racing injuries, and injuries in transit are unavoidable risks of international travel, but you face a lot of these risks even in day-to-day training and racing. The risk is obviously quite strong, but the reward is potentially great when you’re running for huge prize money in very prestigious races. You also have to remember that a lot of horses would be going to America on one-way tickets. Trainers send them over, run them, and then sell them on over there. So that’s something a lot of trainers will have in mind when taking horses abroad.’’ As the lucrative US autumn racing programme approaches, trainers across Europe will be hoping their charges can emulate the international exploits of Ed Dunlop’s Lailani and Ouija Board. In a world now much smaller than it was just 20 years ago, such American dreams now seem all the more accessible in reality.
