A year of big change but a year when little changed at all H

OW do you distil 12 months of top-class racing, horsetrading and breeding-shed activity into 400 words? The first thought that springs to mind is that 2013 was a year of big change in the bloodstock industry; there seemed to be more comings and goings than for a long time. The top table of racehorse owners and breeders welcomed Qatari royal Sheikh Joaan Al Thani, whose grey and red silks quickly became well known after Group 1 victories for his private acquisitions Olympic Glory, Toronado and Treve. Sheikh Joaan’s pursuit of the best stock for his nascent Al Shaqab Racing operation also drove prices for elite offerings at auction to new highs. Meanwhile, his cousin Sheikh Fahad, a big spender for the past few seasons, put down roots with the

Frankel proved as professional in the covering barn as on the track purchase of Longholes Stud in Newmarket and a farm in County Limerick, where another Qatari, Mubarak Al Naemi, bought the famous Kilfrush Stud. US investors John Moores and Charles Noell bought all the Kilfrush stock and received substantial cashback on their purchase when they sold the pearl of the broodmare band, Immortal Verse, for a European record of 4,700,000gns at Tattersalls in December. Although not around for as long as Kilfrush, the bloodstock industry lost a colourful participant when Paul Makin decided to draw stumps on his breeding operation and sell at Goffs the stock he acquired at great cost. The dispersal included Irish Oaks heroine Chicquita, who became the most expensive horse ever sold in Ireland at €6 million.

Frankel embarked on his new career at stud and proved to be as professional in the covering barn as he was on the track, while New Approach announced himself as the next wondersire by supplying two Classic winners – Dawn Approach and Talent – from his first crop. Jaws dropped in the summer when Juddmonte’s newly appointed chief executive Douglas Erskine-Crum told journalists Khalid Abdullah was making significant disposals but they were up again when the operation issued a statement in December firmly saying Juddmonte was not for sale. December also saw the established powerhouses Coolmore splash out for Immortal Verse and Sheikh Mohammed pay 4,000,000gns for Dancing Rain at Tattersalls. And Galileo claimed the European sires’ championship for a fourth consecutive year. Come to think of it, in the bloodstock industry the more things seem to change, the more they stay the same.

SHEIKH JOAAN AL THANI MAY BE A RELATIVELY NEW NAME TO THE RANKS OF LEADING OWNERS AND BREEDERS BUT, WITH BIG PLANS FOR THE FUTURE, HE IS HERE TO STAY BY MARTIN STEVENS

S

TRANGE to think that 12 months ago not many in racing outside of experts on the Middle East or a close circle of advisers knew what racing’s newest superpower Sheikh Joaan Al Thani looked like. At that point another Qatari royal, Sheikh Fahad Al Thani, was well known after Melbourne Cup victory for Dunaden and the showstopping 2,500,000gns purchase of Hydrogen at Tattersalls. But his cousin was still a mysterious figure. Four Group 1 victories, including a famous Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe stroll by his star filly Treve, a string of big-money acquisitions of promising horses in training and a record-smashing yearling purchase later, the suave figure of Sheikh Joaan, always immaculately turned out, whether in a sharp suit for the races or expensive casual wear for the sales, is becoming more and more familiar. The bloodstock industry first sat up and took notice of the name Sheikh Joaan when he was cited by his agent Nicolas de Watrigant as the purchaser of the top lot at the 2012 Arqana August Yearling Sale, the €1.2 million son of Sea The Stars and Prix Jean Romanet winner Alpine Rose, now named Edkhan and an entry in the 2014 Derby.

racingpost.com/ipad

From what was nearly a standing start – De Watrigant had bought three less-expensive yearlings for his new client at the preceding year’s August sale with no fanfare – Sheikh Joaan embarked on an extraordinary spending spree that reached a stunning climax at Book 1 of this year’s Tattersalls October Yearling Sale. A month after purchasing the Deauville sale-topper, the 29-year-old pounced for Julie Wood’s Superlative and Vintage Stakes winner Olympic Glory. He elected to keep the horse with Richard Hannon and the son of Choisir became the sheikh’s first horse in training in Britain. A few weeks later – and only two months after Sheikh Joaan’s colours were carried to victory by a thoroughbred for the first time, by one of those Arqana 2011 purchases, Fatih Al Keir, at Dax – the grey silks with red epaulettes inspired by the Aga Khan’s were borne to Group 1 victory when Olympic Glory landed the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardère. Three days after that De Watrigant bought the second dearest lot at Book 1, a Galileo sister to Was, for 1,500,000gns. The purchase of Haras de Bouquetot in Normandy followed, along with a

string of expensive broodmares at the end of 2012 to fill it: Changing Skies, a three-parts sister to Nathaniel and Great Heavens, for $4.2m; Dynaformer’s dual Grade 1-winning daughter Harmonious for $2.8m; Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf heroine Zagora for $2.5m; and Twyla Tharp, the dam of that year’s star three-year-old filly The Fugue for a Tattersalls December Breeding-Stock Sale-topping sum of 1,700,000gns. They were just the tip of the iceberg. At the start of 2013 Sheikh Joaan strengthened his hand with the purchase of Hannon’s other Classic hopeful Toronado. The stablemates Olympic Glory and Toronado won four races in the past year including a Group 1 each, Toronado getting the better of Dawn Approach in a thrilling duel for the Sussex Stakes and Olympic Glory streaking clear to win the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes. Planteur, Sandiva and Style Vendome also found themselves racing for Sheikh Joaan after advertising their talent, but the purchase that thrust the sheikh into the limelight was that of Treve from her owner-breeders the Head family after her breathtakingly easy four-length defeat of subsequent Irish Oaks winner Chicquita in the Prix de Diane. Wild rumours of a vertigo-inducing sum paid for Treve circulated – and were strongly denied by the Qatari’s advisers – but by the end of the season even the exaggerated price-tag that gossip had put on her looked good value after she displayed a rare cruising speed and lethal turn of foot to destroy a competitive field of international stars in the Arc. As was the case with Olympic Glory 

12 months before, victory on Arc weekend meant Sheikh Joaan entered Book 1 week straight after on the high of success and it may have been the adrenaline still pumping through his veins that made him stretch to 5,000,000gns – a European record for a thoroughbred at auction – to see off Coolmore and buy another sister to Was. “Hopefully she’s another Treve,” De Watrigant said after signing the docket. Entering 2014 Sheikh Joaan’s involvement in the bloodstock industry has deepened further with the start of the careers of his first two stallions, Planteur and Style Vendome, at Bouquetot, which is run by former Darley Flying Start trainee Benoit Jeffroy. A former student of France’s foremost military academy the École Spéciale Militaire de Saint-Cyr, Sheikh Joaan has been good to French racing, with the nucleus of his breeding operation in Normandy now giving the country’s breeders the chance to use two Group 1-winning sons of popular, commercial stallions in Danehill Dancer and Anabaa. Sheikh Joaan was also revealed as a major shareholder in triple Group 1 winner Al Kazeem, who embarks on his stallion career at the Royal Studs in 2014. He will be sending the son of Dubawi some of the cream of his nascent broodmare band, including Changing Skies and Mizdirection, bought for $2.7m at Fasig-Tipton in November two days after her repeat triumph in the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint. Tapping into an outstanding performer by one of Europe’s most in-demand sires is no doubt the driving force behind Sheikh Joaan’s support of Al Kazeem, but standing behind the horse alongside the Queen no doubt also serves a diplomatic purpose to raise the profile of Qatar – in a similar way that Sheikh Mohammed used his involvement in racing to help build Dubai into a major business centre and tourist destination. While Sheikh Mohammed has Godolphin, Sheikh Joaan will have Al Shaqab Racing, the new umbrella name for his racing and breeding interests. In November Al Shaqab

Sheikh Joaan talks to retained rider Frankie Dettori after Sandiva’s success in the Prix du Calvados at Deauville

revealed its blueprint to become a leading international Flat racing operation; Sheikh Joaan’s right-hand man Nasser Sherida Al Kaabi said Al Shaqab would have “goals and objectives all over the world”, and the aim was to be “the most successful racing organisation in the world, with the best horses, the best trainers and the best manpower”. Harry Herbert, who built Highclere Thoroughbred Racing into one of the most successful syndicated ownership operations in the world, has been appointed racing manager to Al Shaqab, which will have new racing silks for 2014. There are big ideas for the breeding operation too. Al Shaqab is looking to buy an established farm in Britain or Ireland, which could be the destination of Olympic Glory and Toronado, who will be seeking further Group 1 glory in 2014. Maybe Treve, whose main aim will be another Arc victory in the year ahead, will be one of their first mates,

although Sheikh Joaan is prepared to dig deep for nominations to the world’s most expensive stallions, including Frankel and Galileo. Sheikh Joaan’s rapid expansion of Al Shaqab Racing evokes memories of Sheikh Mohammed’s spending spree in the bloodstock boom of the 1980s to establish himself as a leading owner-breeder. The Qatari and Dubai royals are united by a thirst for success at any cost and if one thing suggests how all-encompassing Al Shaqab Racing is set to become, and explains how, despite Europe’s wider economy still struggling to emerge from recession, record prices for bloodstock are being set, it is the following words from Sheikh Joaan’s director of public relations Al Kaabi. “Sheikh Joaan has amazing ambitions and a striking view of the future,” he said. “He wants to be number one. He doesn’t accept being second. For him finishing second is the same as finishing last.” t racingpost.com/bloodstock

THE TRE VE STORY

HEADS UP trainer Criquette Head-Maarek, who describes her arc heroine Treve as a gift from god, on her pride at the homebred’s achievements and future plans by KATHERINE FIDLER racingpost.com/bloodstock


THE TRE VE STORY

1 13

RIQUETTE HEAD-MAAREK, who describes her Arc winner Treve as “a gift from God”, could herself be described as a gift to journalists. The story of Head-Maarek, her family and their involvement with the family of Treve, practically writes itself as an incredible tale of lives horse and human intertwined for generations, chapter upon chapter building into an Arc-winning climax followed by the ultimate cliffhanger – ‘to be continued’. The narrative is one not lost on Head-Maarek, speaking in November just hours before Treve was crowned Cartier Horse of the Year. “It makes me incredibly proud to look at the pedigree, I promise you,” she says. “The amazing thing when you look at it is that the dam, granddam and great-granddam are by Anabaa, Riverman and Lyphard – all horses my papa [Alec Head] was involved with.” Yet while family is an important

C

It makes me incredibly proud to look at the pedigree, I promise you presence in the life of Head-Maarek, there is so much more to the woman who, like many in her situation, had to quash rumours of nepotism from the outset of a career that has now yielded two victories in Europe’s richest race. The most notable of those characteristics? A seemingly incorrigible enthusiasm for the job and an acute awareness that, unlike many people in this world, she is privileged to spend her life immersed in an industry she adores. Casting the mind back to that momentous day at Longchamp in October, and after Treve blitzed her rivals Head-Maarek was clearly as overjoyed as the filly’s new owner Sheikh Joaan Al Thani, the winning punters and anyone else who simply revels in the sight of a flawless performance – not for this Chantilly trainer the reticent, wry smile of another race in the bag shown by some of racing’s elite, but an unrestrained racingpost.com/ipad

outpouring of admiration for the sight of nature’s greatest athlete at its best. “She has an incredible turn of foot. It’s rare to find a horse like that – she’s a gift from God!” says Head-Maarek. “She can do anything, everything is so easy with her – she makes everyone look good!” Proudly showing off a photo of Europe’s greatest filly the day after her Arc exertions – looking a million dollars – Head-Maarek adds: “I don’t like to compare horses, but she’s the best I’ve ever trained. Hatoof was a very good filly, Three Troikas, Ravinella – I’ve had a lot of good fillies but this one, she’s special, because she can do anything.” When the conversation ebbs from racing to breeding, and on to the Head family’s renowned Haras du Quesnay in Normandy, Head-Maarek is equally as effusive.

“Papa retired in 2009 and since then my brother Freddy, myself and my sisters Martine and Patricia have run the place,” says Head-Maarek. “We love it. We’ve been breeding since we were like that,” she says, using the internationally recognised hand gesture for ‘knee-high to a grasshopper’. “It’s easy, it’s a continuation of our job.” By now the mating plans for next year will have been finalised, Head-Maarek jetting back to France the day after the awards to consult with Freddy on the matter, the pair choosing between Quesnay’s seven stallions – Dunkerque, Fuisse, Kentucky Dynamite, Full Of Gold, Motivator, Mr Sidney and Youmzain – and external matches. This year that includes triple Group 1 winner Al Kazeem, in whom the stud has shares, and Prix du Jockey Club winner Intello. The son of Galileo will join the K

THE TRE VE STORY

Quesnay roster in 2016 following two years at Newmarket’s Cheveley Park Stud. “That’s going to be a little bit complicated,” says Head-Maarek, whose passion for the job does not cloud her business acumen. “It’s difficult to make a horse two years in one country then move to another. I would have rather liked to take the first two years – the third year of a stallion can be the most tricky – but it’s fun to do it, and we’ve been working with [Intello’s owners] the Wertheimers for years.” Head-Maarek is equally as frank about the stud’s exquisitely bred first-season sire Mr Sidney, who she admits was priced too high in his debut season at stud. “He has not been bad this year – he’s had winners and some placed horses – but he had very few horses on the ground,” says Head-Maarek. One of those placed juveniles is Trophee, a half-sister to Treve who races carrying the Quesnay silks, as did her sibling before one of racing’s emerging powers, Sheikh Joaan, made the Heads an offer they could not refuse. “We said no at the beginning,” says Head-Maarek, “but then there are things you can’t say no to – especially to run all our horses, it’s a big operation.” The figure that eventually persuaded the Head family to reconsider was undoubtedly many hundreds, if not thousands, of times more than the €22,000 at which she was led out unsold as a yearling. “We put up some nice yearlings for sale because we need to, to make money to run Quesnay, so that’s why Treve went through,” says Head-Maarek, adding the future Arc winner was some way off her reserve. “I suppose [her sire] Motivator didn’t help her sell. We thought she’d make more, so that’s why we brought her back.” A canny judgement indeed, but not far off in the shrewd stakes is that of Alec’s decision to buy Gout De Terroir, the dam of Elusive Kate, from Keeneland before the eventual four-time Group 1 winner had made her debut. “Gout De Terroir has a lovely filly

foal by Galileo, a Fuisse yearling who is very nice and she’s in foal to Mr Sidney,” Head-Maarek says. The modus operandi at Quesnay is not just to be a stallion stud, resolutely supporting the roster with its own stock, but first and foremost to source sires who fit with its well-honed broodmare band. “It’s difficult with stallions because you never know,” says Head-Maarek, “but what Papa has been trying to do is see if a particular horse mates with our mares, and then we say ‘okay’ – that’s what we did with Motivator, because we have a

lot of Anabaa mares and it’s a very good cross. “We have six stallions who are all doing quite well, and we try to diversify a bit so they’re not all the same. “Then you have to try to attract good mares because they’re the ones who produce. Stallions are important, but I think the mares, the ones who produce, are a little more important. “In a mare I look for a pedigree – a very strong pedigree – on the dam’s side. Always go in for good families if you can. “Papa says you can’t keep them too  racingpost.com/bloodstock

THE TRE VE STORY

long if they’re not doing well, you have to try to bring in fresh blood. “I’m not saying we’ll be as successful as he has been, but we’ll try to do the best we can.” Treve, conceived in 2009 – the year Head senior bowed out – certainly provided the most fitting of tributes for a man who, alongside his family, won the Cartier/Daily Telegraph Award of Merit in 1998, commemorating a lifetime of success as an owner/breeder/trainer. It was in their first year flying solo that Head-Maarek and Freddy sent Trevise, the dam of Treve who was trained by Freddy to beat none other than Six Perfections when winning her first start, to the stud’s own Mr Sidney to produce Trophee. “Trophee was second in a very nice race, taking on winners and Group-placed horses,” says Head-Maarek. “I did something I don’t normally do, but I wanted to know her capacity so I went from a fifth place in a [mile] maiden first time out to a conditions race. The distance was a little shorter [7f ] and I think she’ll be better over shorter. Thierry Jarnet didn’t give her a hard race that day; if he had, maybe she could have won.” It is hardly surprising Head-Maarek should be keen to test the potential of a sibling to the world’s joint highest-rated runner (Europe’s darling sharing honours with her antipodean counterpart, Black Caviar), but she admits she took things a lot slower with the great horse herself. “I thought a lot of Treve when she was two but I didn’t race her until that September because she wasn’t finished,” says Head-Maarek. “She was still growing and didn’t look right in her coat, so I took my time with her. “When she raced at Longchamp first time out I said, ‘Papa, we have something nice for next year’, and we entered her in all the main races – except the Arc because that is later – but she was in the Saint-Alary, Poule d’Essai des Pouliches, all the good races. However, at the beginning of the year she was still not coming right, she was still very backward, so I decided to bypass the French Guineas and Saint-Alary, but it didn’t matter because I thought she was a good filly.”

Alec Head (centre right), breeder of Treve, is congratulated after the filly’s Arc victory by Louis Romanet

Then, like in every good fairytale, disaster struck. “One day my blacksmith put a nail in her foot, which stopped her racing,” says Head-Maarek, whose perpetually upbeat attitude mixes with a hint of stoicism when she adds: “But these things happen, it was nobody’s fault – and maybe it was a good thing because I had to wait, so she became very fresh compared to horses who had already had a lot of racing.” The tale of Treve’s supplementary entry into the Arc – a leap of faith that paid off in spectacular fashion – is well documented, as is the next chapter, which will see her aimed at the Prix Ganay before a trip to Royal Ascot for the Prince of Wales’s Stakes en route to the defence of her Arc title. But for her siblings, the future is still

Sheikh ‘is very good for French racing’ ‘‘Sheikh Joaan is very good for French racing and he’s a charming man. He’s very easy to deal with and it was very good of him to let me continue training Treve – he could have easily sent her to another yard,’’ says Head-Maarek of Treve’s new owner. ‘‘He let me do exactly what I wanted with her, the only thing he imposed on me was Frankie [Dettori], and that was normal because he had a retainer – and with Frankie it’s no problem! ‘‘I hope Sheikh Joaan will send me some yearlings, he’s bought a few nice ones. I’d be very pleased if he’d send me some. ‘‘The stud will have some competition from Haras de Bouquetot [Sheikh Joaan’s new stud, home of Style Vendome and Planteur], but that’s good, it makes us move – and it’s not just from there we’ll have competition!’’

more of an open book – never more so than in the case of her unborn brother or sister. “Trevise has a yearling filly by Fuisse who’s coming into training next week, then she was empty, and now she’s in foal to Motivator,” says Head-Maarek. Treve has been a better advert for Motivator than anyone could have possibly hoped, yet the Head family were aware of his potential long before their star filly set foot on the turf. “We always loved Motivator,” says Head-Maarek. “Papa bought shares in him when he went to stud. We used him every year and every year we had something nice. “When we knew things were going only so-so for the stallion, we called John Warren and asked if we could bring him back to Quesnay. He covered 135 mares and he’s full for next year, even though we raised the price.” After this year few would argue with the fee hike, nor would many contest the following statement by his guardian: “You have to have great belief if you have horses,” she says. “And then you have to keep your fingers crossed! “But it’s fun, I promise you it’s fun. It’s fun to do the matings, fun to see the foals, and then train them – because we do everything at Quesnay, and to make a good horse is fantastic.” The year 2013 has certainly been a fantastic one for Head-Maarek by that gauge, there being no better horse in the world. And with Treve racing on in 2014, who would not be full of the joys of life? “When you’ve got a horse like her, you’ve got everything,” says Head-Maarek. “It’s a blessing.” t racingpost.com/bloodstock

TOP GUNS THE QUALITY OF STALLIONS ON OFFER TO BREEDERS AT SHEIKH MOHAMMED’S EUROPEAN STUDS HAS NEVER BEEN HIGHER AND IS TESTAMENT TO THE OPERATION’S HARD WORK BY MARTIN STEVENS HAT a difference a decade has made for Darley’s European stallion squad. In 2003 the two most expensive members of the roster at £30,000 were Halling, who would have to wait another six years before he was represented by his first Group 1 winner, and Fantastic Light, who was covering his second book of mares in a stud career that fell well short of what his former racecourse rival Galileo achieved. Elder statesman Machiavellian commanded a private fee but the son of Mr Prospector – who left a lasting influence on Darley’s Kentucky roster through his son Street Cry – was to succumb one year later to the laminitis that blighted his later years. Fast-forward ten years and Sheikh Mohammed’s operation has an embarrassment of riches in its stallion boxes at Dalham Hall Stud in Newmarket and Kildangan Stud in County Kildare. Dubawi went from strength to strength with four top-level winners in 2013, including standout Al Kazeem, and the exciting two-year-olds Al Thakhira, Kiyoshi, Night Of Thunder and Piping Rock to look forward to in 2014. New Approach continued the outstanding start to the stallion career he made in 2012 when he supplied three Royal Ascot winners from his first crop, including subsequent champion juvenile Dawn Approach, by siring two Classic winners – Dawn Approach in the 2,000 Guineas and Talent in the Oaks. The headline acts have a strong supporting cast too, with Shamardal and Teofilo

churning out Group 1 winners, Exceed And Excel being crowned champion sire in Australia and proving himself one of the best dual-hemisphere stallions by also supplying Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf winner Outstrip, and Authorized, a new recruit to Haras du Logis in Normandy, siring his first three top-flight winners including British Champion Fillies and Mares heroine Seal Of Approval. Darley’s stallion ranks have been bolstered by the addition of Dawn Approach, 2012 Prix Morny and Middle Park Stakes hero Reckless Abandon and Australian Group 1 winner Epaulette to Kildangan, and Lockinge and Champion Stakes winner Farhh to Dalham Hall. “Dubai might have been built in a day but Rome wasn’t,” Darley’s director of stallions Sam Bullard says of the transformation of the operation’s fortunes. “It’s down to a combination of factors – getting the right horses and gaining the confidence of the marketplace to send us their best mares. “There’s no book on how to optimise stallions and it should be remembered we’ve had success along the way with the likes of Ouija Board and Sea The Stars [both by Cape Cross, entering his 15th year at Kildangan Stud in 2014] – but I suppose the roster is a lot better now and we’re just satisfied we have got here in the end.” Bullard, who joined Sam Bullard: “No horse in the history of the Pattern has made as good a start as Dubawi”

Darley in 1999, is particularly rhapsodic on the subject of Dubawi. “No horse in the history of the Pattern has made as good a start as he has,” he says. “No horse can boast a relation of stakes winners-to-runners of 14 per cent that Dubawi can. At this stage of his career [oldest crop are six], no other stallion has had 11 Group/Grade 1 winners. He’s setting the bar higher than ever before.” Dubawi is particularly close to Sheikh Mohammed’s heart, as he hails from the sole crop of ill-fated Darley icon Dubai Millennium and carried the Godolphin silks to three top-level victories. “Dubai Millennium was what the operation is all about and for Dubawi to be trained by Godolphin and then join Darley’s ranks and sire a new generation of Godolphin Group 1 winners gives the boss a huge amount of pleasure,” Bullard says. Sheikh Mohammed is very much the boss, with the team at the studs making recommendations to him and John Ferguson, who have the final say on decisions such as where stallions will stand and their covering fees. An insight into how involved Sheikh Mohammed is in the operation is given by Bullard. “After Dawn Approach won the 2,000 Guineas I went down to Dalham Hall to see [stallion man] Ken Crozier, and Sheikh Mohammed and Princess Haya were there giving New Approach a carrot,” he says. “That’s how much he adores these horses.” Both Dubawi and New Approach have been rewarded for their continued success on the track and in the sales 


DALHAM HALL AND KILDANGAN

Tragedy marred start of year WHAT turned out to be a triumphant year for the Darley stallions began with tragedy, with the sudden death in January of Kildangan Stud’s popular and well respected nominations manager Mick Buckley aged only 45. ‘‘Mick wasn’t just a great loss to Kildangan but to the whole bloodstock industry, and it was a difficult year coming to terms with his death,’’ reflects the stud’s managing director Joe Osborne. It would be impossible to replace Buckley, described by his close friend John Joseph Murphy ‘‘as at home coaching young people in their careers as he was dealing with princes’’, but Kildangan has a new team who will be managing no fewer than three first-season stallions to look forward to in 2014 – Dawn Approach, Epaulette and Reckless Abandon. Former Darley Flying Start trainee Gerry Duffy was appointed general manager and Eamon Moloney nominations manager. ‘‘Gerry has settled in well, we knew him already from when he worked at [Darley’s Kentucky arm] Jonabell Farm,’’ Osborne says. ‘‘We’ve always held him in high regard. ‘‘Our stallion roster is now up to ten and with the three new stallions we have something for all different price points. They have been very popular and well received.’’

ring with steep fee increases for 2014; Dubawi is up by a third to £100,000 from £75,000 and New Approach has been raised by 60 per cent to £80,000 from £50,000. Fees for Teofilo – the sire of top-level winners Havana Gold, Trading Leather and Voleuse De Coeurs in 2013 – and Iffraaj, who supplied the juvenile Group 1 winners Chriselliam and Rizeena, have also been increased. Bullard defends the fee hikes. “It’s a question of supply and demand,” he says. “All of the most expensive Darley stallions are already chock-a-block for

We don’t limit books but we do limit what we think each sire can cover 2014; there is huge demand for them. Our online auctions will show whether they are underpriced or overpriced. It will be interesting to see how it goes.” Nominations to Exceed And Excel, Farhh, Iffraaj, New Approach, Reckless Abandon and Teofilo were put up for auction without reserve on the Darley website in December. A similar auction of covers by Darley’s Kentucky and Australian stallions saw final bids constantly exceed advertised fees. Demand for the nominations in the auction were likely to be driven by the difficulty some outside breeders have

getting multiple mares into Darley’s most popular stallions, an issue Bullard acknowledges. “When you have a top stallion all breeders want to send you their mares, but they know the owner has more right to use that stallion than anyone else,” he says. “Sheikh Mohammed is sending top mares to his stallions and my job is to ensure that, on the open market, there is the best opportunity for third-party mares. Racecourse results are showing the value of this and breeders’ confidence in us is increasing, and therefore so is the quality of mares they send.” Bullard considers 140 to be about the right book size for a fit and healthy horse, with a few more mares being taken towards the end of the season if the stallion can take it. “We don’t limit books but we do limit what we think each sire can cover,” he says. “So Exceed And Excel covered fewer at Dalham Hall this year as he’d been busy in his southern hemisphere season. “As far as mare numbers go, we hope everyone who signs a contract with Darley has a fair opportunity of getting a foal.” An example of Darley limiting numbers to what a stallion can manage was the late decision to hold New Approach back from shuttling to Australia even though he featured in the southern hemisphere stallion brochure. “Every stallion is individual and some are more efficient than others,” Bullard says. “Our philosophy is to safeguard each horse, not to abuse him – that comes right from the top.” High achieving, in demand and oversubscribed, the Darley stallions have clearly come a long way over the past decade, and yet Bullard thinks they can do even better. “The happiest day of the year for me – apart from getting married! – was when Al Kazeem and Mukhadram, sons of Dubawi and Shamardal, fought out the finish of the Prince of Wales’s Stakes. I really want the Dubai Millennium line to flourish and I hope in ten years’ time we’re talking about Dubawi as a sire of sires in a way people do now about Galileo. I think we will be.” 

IS days of supremacy on the racecourse may be over but that has not kept Frankel out of the limelight. The unbeaten ten-time Group 1 winner embarked on the next chapter of his career in 2013 in the serene surroundings of his owner-breeder Khalid Abdullah’s Banstead Manor Stud in Newmarket. The imposing son of Galileo slipped into stud duties flawlessly, covering 133 mares during the northern hemisphere season from between the middle of February and June 13. Of those, 126 were scanned in foal for a fertility rate of 95 per cent. Six of the seven mares not in foal were pregnant before suffering early foetal deaths. Frankel’s maiden book comprised a calibre of female talent comparable to that of pop lothario Harry Styles. It included 38 Group or Grade 1 winners and 26 dams of Group or Grade 1 winners. Such was the global demand from breeders for Frankel’s services, Juddmonte allowed a limited book of 22 mares to be bred on southern hemisphere time, of whom 18 are in foal, including eight-time Group 1 winner More Joyous.

and £10 from every visitor was donated to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices, which was the charity chosen by Sir Henry Cecil.” Frankel’s celebrity status and ever-increasing commercial value has led to the name Frankel becoming a brand in itself – not many horses can boast their own website and registered trademark – and his memorabilia as well as merchandise has been in high demand. “Throughout the year a number of charities have benefited from the sale of Frankel memorabilia,” says Mitchell. “A headcollar worn by the horse was sold in the US at the Belmont Charity auction

JOY OF S UCCESS

KITTEN’S JOY STANDS ON THE BRINK OF A FIRST AMERICAN SIRES’ TITLE AND IT WILL BE JUST REWARD FOR THE HUSBAND AND WIFE WHO HAVE BEEN HIS GREATEST SUPPORTERS BY NANCY SEXTON

I

N A world where powerful organisations dominate, it is the passion of one husband and wife that has been the driving influence behind one of the greatest success stories in the bloodstock industry of recent years. When Ken and Sarah Ramsey retired Kitten’s Joy to their Ramsey Farm in Kentucky in 2006, they could stand behind a homebred who was a champion two-time Grade 1 winner and earner of close to $2.1 million. Even so, in a market driven by dirt racing, early support for the horse, a grandson of Sadler’s Wells who had raced exclusively on turf, was far from overwhelming. For the Ramseys, however, that turf bias presented no such issue. Confident in their stallion’s ability to sire runners, they threw their weight behind Kitten’s Joy and are now reaping spectacular results. Seven years on there are scores of ‘Kittens’ showcasing the Ramsey colours across America, while the axis is set to become increasingly prominent in Europe. Kitten’s Joy (main picture, at Ramsey Farm in Kentucky)) is on course to record his first sires’ championship. And his numbers make impressive reading. From 521 foals of Big Blue Kitten: one of three Grade 1 winners for Kitten’s Joy and the Ramseys on a remarkable day in mid-August

racing age, the son of El Prado has sired 42 stakes winners (eight per cent) on turf, Polytrack and dirt ranging from 6½f to a mile and a half. Five are Grade 1 winners and each scored at the top level in 2013, including the Ramsey trio Admiral Kitten, Big Blue Kitten and Real Solution, who swept three of America’s biggest turf events – the Secretariat Stakes, Sword Dancer Invitational Handicap and Arlington Million (won by Real Solution on the demotion of The Apache) – on a remarkable Saturday in mid-August. With 23 stakes winners to his credit by late November this year, rarely did a week go by in 2013 when Kitten’s Joy was not represented by a top three stakes finisher. As a result, his fee has been doubled to $100,000 for 2014. Although deservedly now gaining outside attention, including from the Aga Khan, Niarchos family and Juddmonte in 2013, Kitten’s Joy owes his success almost exclusively to the support of the Ramseys. No fewer than 40 of his stakes winners were bred and raised at Ramsey Farm, which is managed by Mark Partridge. “We started out in the first year with 129 mares to Kitten’s Joy and the vast majority were ours,” recalls Ken Ramsey, 77, who alongside Sarah has campaigned the winners of nearly $11.5m this year. Bred by the Ramseys 

out of Kitten’s First, by Lear Fan, Kitten’s Joy was trained by Dale Romans to win the 2004 Joe Hirsch Turf Classic Invitational and Secretariat Stakes. That year another Ramsey flag-bearer, Roses In May, took the Whitney Handicap en route to Dubai World Cup victory the following March. “We kept the right one,” says Ramsey of the decision to sell Roses In May to Japan. “Kitten’s Joy was a champion and the first five stallions in his sire line are all champions. Then his first three dams are either Grade 1 winners or have produced a Grade 1 winner.” With Kitten’s Joy installed at Ramsey Farm for the 2006 season at a fee of $25,000, Ramsey used the revenue generated by the earnings won by Roses In May and his subsequent sale to stock up on suitable mates. And given that 14 of the stallion’s stakes runners are out of mares containing Hail To Reason blood, it did not take long to unearth a successful cross. “We were trying to get well-bred mares, what we call ‘has beens’ rather than ‘never beens’,” says Ramsey, a retired businessman whose most recent venture was a cellular telephone network. He used his encyclopaedic knowledge of the form book to target particular fillies in the claiming ranks. “They had to have correct conformation and some back-quality class to the pedigree. A lot of the time it’s difficult to claim a filly with a strong first dam, but we’d look as long they had a good second or third dam. “Mark has an excellent eye. If he didn’t like them when they came to the farm they’d go back to the track.” So what makes Kitten’s Joy so good? Sarah Ramsey attributes his success to the toughness, will to win and versatility exhibited by his progeny while highlighting the importance of the farm’s facilities, such as the state-of-the-art underwater treadmill and vibrating platform, said to increase bone density. The 1,215-acre property, bought in 1994, also has the Jessamine Creek Ken and Sarah Ramsey: confident in their stallion’s ability racingpost.com/ipad

running through it, allowing the horses constant access to natural spring water. The next chapter of Kitten’s Joy’s stud career is likely to take on an international flavour. Ramsey has already successfully campaigned his progeny in Italy with Gianluca Bietolini and in Ireland with Dermot Weld. Determined to one day win at Royal Ascot after coming close with Cannonball in the 2009 Golden Jubilee Stakes, Ramsey is relishing the prospect of sending a larger group of ‘Kittens’ to race in Europe, one of whom could be this year’s Just A Game Stakes heroine Stephanie’s Kitten. Plans are also on the horizon to stand a son of Kitten’s Joy. “Not everyone can afford the stud fee,” says Partridge, “but they’ll sure breed to a son. It’s tough to stand a turf horse over here but Kitten’s Joy is making it easier to do that.” Ramsey adds: “It’s been amazing, a homebred stallion. That’s what has made it so enjoyable.” 

Dam who beat odds from start THE fact Kitten’s Joy was born at all is remarkable given Ken Ramsey was advised to put down his dam, Kitten’s First, after the daughter of Lear Fan suffered a pelvis injury in her second start for Bill Mott. An easy winner first time out over colts at Belmont Park, Kitten’s First was sent off favourite for the Junior Champion Stakes at Monmouth Park only to be pulled up injured just strides into the race. ‘‘When we got back to the barn she was lying down and we were advised to have her put down,’’ says Ramsey. “But we managed to stand her up and we gave her a chance. Tom Albertrani offered to stay with her that night, so we owe him a lot of thanks.’’ Although Kitten’s First survived, the injury complicated her breeding career to the extent she lost three foals before producing Kitten’s Joy, himself delivered by caesarean section. ‘‘Sarah insisted on the name Kitten’s Joy – Kitten is my nickname for her and finally getting another foal out of Kitten’s First provided her with so much joy,’’ he says. Kitten’s First delivered a further two foals by caesarean – Grade 1 winner Precious Kitten, a daughter of fellow Ramsey stallion Catienus, and Justenuffheart, the dam of Grade 1 winner Dreaming Of Anna. In the end it was something as minor as a nail that ended her life. ‘‘She was again in foal to El Prado and stepped on a nail,’’ says Ramsey. ‘‘She foundered and then broke a leg in the stall. But she was a brave mare.’’

bread and butter has always been bargainbasement two-year-olds and his ability to transform them into superstars. A case in point is this year’s unbeaten juvenile Toormore, who was bought by Hannon’s longstanding talent scouts Peter and Ross Doyle for £36,000 at the DBS Premier Yearling Sale. Hannon – who recently announced he is to hand over the trainer’s licence to his son Richard jnr on January 1 – and the Doyles had to dig a little deeper to secure Toormore’s Dark Angel half-brother at this year’s renewal, parting with £200,000 for the Redpender Stud-consigned colt. The rangy Toormore is by Ballyhane Stud resident Arakan, a sire the stable has grown particularly fond of, having nurtured the careers of two other sons, dual Group 1 winner Dick Turpin and high-class miler Trumpet Major.

Toormore, who runs in the colours of a Middleham Park Racing syndicate, will surely improve physically at three and, although his pedigree does not scream Classic winner, it does suggest a step up in trip will suit, as he descends from a family that includes the useful Easaar, who won over an extended mile. Sudirman went into the National Stakes fresh from p r ov i d i n g h i s s o p h o m o re sire Henrythenavigator with back-to-back winners in the Phoenix Stakes, following Pedro The Great in 2012. Although a cosy winner of the Railway Stakes, the David Wachmantrained colt was not expected to beat the short-priced favourite War Command at the Curragh. Aidan O’Brien’s colt, who is owned by the Coolmore partners and his breeder Joseph Allen, was heavily backed into 2-5 favouritism following a six-length romp in the Coventry Stakes. However, he failed to display the lightning change of pace witnessed at Royal Ascot and connections suggested he would improve for a step up in trip. They were right. He quickened well to land the Futurity Stakes before his deserved top-flight win in the Dewhurst Stakes and he goes into winter quarters as a leading 2,000 Guineas contender. War Command is by US-based sire War Front, who burst on to the European scene this year with two other stakes winners – dual Group 1 winner Declaration Of War and Listed scorer and Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf runner-up Giovanni Boldini. The triumvirate were all sent out from Ballydoyle under the ownership or co-ownership of Coolmore, who have invested heavily in War Front, Allen’s homebred son of Danzig. War Command was one of two Coolmore-owned juvenile winners at the royal meeting, alongside US-bred colt No Nay Never. However, the last-named bulging brown specimen was not prepared K racingpost.com/bloodstock

at Ballydoyle under the stewardship of O’Brien, but in the altogether different climes of Keeneland, Kentucky with Wesley Ward, who sent out Strike The Tiger and Jealous Again to win at the royal meeting in 2009. No Nay Never made a striking debut at Keeneland in a 4½f maiden on the Polytrack and there was plenty of confidence behind him in the run-up to the Norfolk Stakes. It was easy to see why when he entered the paddock as the son of Scat Daddy dwarfed his 13 rivals. No Nay Never did not disappoint. After slightly fluffing his lines leaving the stalls, he powered clear to beat the O’Brien-trained Coach House by a length. No Nay Never returned to Europe in August for the Prix Morny at Deauville, leading from pillar to post to beat a top-notch field that included classy fillies Vorda and Rizeena. The Prix Morny was arguably the best juvenile form on offer this year, with the runner-up Vorda, a French-trained daughter of Orpen, subsequently scooting clear of her rivals in a competitive Cheveley Park Stakes and Rizeena, who finished third, beating a high-class field, which included Albany Stakes scorer Kiyoshi, in the Moyglare Stud Stakes. The Clive Brittain-trained Rizeena was one of two Group 1 winners for the resurgent Iffraaj. The Darley stallion was also responsible for Chriselliam, who led home a memorable one-two for her sire when defeating the admirably consistent Rizeena in the Fillies’ Mile before readily drawing clear of her rivals in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf at Santa Anita. It has been mooted that Chriselliam will be given a 2,000 Guineas entry and if she takes up the engagement it is likely she will face Khalid Abdullah’s homebred Kingman. The Invincible Spirit colt went into a number of notebooks when breaking his duck with consummate ease in a Newmarket maiden. He justified his lofty reputation when readily disposing of three rivals in the Solario Stakes at Sandown. The Niarchos family homebred Karakontie, a son of the late Bernstein, cemented his position as one of the leading racingpost.com/ipad

Earlier in the season, the Jonathan Peasetrained colt had finished second to Hannon’s Hurricane Run colt Bunker in a Listed event at Deauville. Bunker had been put firmly in his place before that when comprehensively beaten by Paul Cole’s exciting youngster Berkshire in the Chesham Stakes.

Although not short of speed, Kingston Hill will surely thrive over middle distances as he descends from a family that includes three-time Grade 1-winning chaser Captain Conan. Intense Focus was another first-season sire to hit the headlines, courtesy of Astaire, who capped a fine season with a brave win in the Middle Park Stakes. The Kevin Ryantrained juvenile also won the Gimcrack Stakes. The last mention must go to Australia. The regally bred colt – by Galileo out of multiple Group 1 winner Ouija Board – put up an eyecatching performance when trouncing the highly touted Free Eagle by six lengths in a Group 3 at Leopardstown in September. He is owned by Coolmore and a tilt at the Triple Crown next year is conceivable, with ‘the lads’ looking to make amends after Camelot fell at the final hurdle in 2012. It looks like being an exciting Classic season ahead. t

More notably perhaps, this season produced a three-year-old crop that proved better equipped to hold its own in all-aged company than the previous year, spearheaded by wonderful Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe winner Treve.

the Sussex Stakes at Glorious Goodwood, breathing problems blighted the son of High Chaparral at various points in his season, including when fourth in the 2,000 Guineas. At that point, on a blustery, rain-ravaged Rowley Mile in May, Dawn Approach was unbeaten, returning to the scene of his Dewhurst victory to become the first of two Classic winners for his sire New Approach, followed by victory in the Oaks for the Ralph Beckett-trained filly Talent. However, the Derby was to prove Dawn Approach’s undoing. After being set alight in the early stages, the weeks of debating whether or not Jim Bolger’s colt would – or could – stay the trip were answered as he finished a tailed-off last. Thirty three lengths ahead, Aidan O’Brien’s Ruler Of The World crossed the line triumphant, becoming a second Derby winner for his sire Galileo after New Approach and the Coolmore juggernaut’s second Classic winner in a week after the victory of Ruler Of The World’s stablemate Magician in the Irish 2,000 Guineas. A clash between Dawn Approach and Magician in the St James’s Palace Stakes became a non-event – the latter fell foul of an earlier incident with a sparrow – and not until November were the wraps taken off O’Brien’s secret weapon when Magician denied The Fugue, at the top of her game this season and the highest-rated filly in Britain and Ireland, in Santa Anita’s Breeders’ Cup Turf under a vintage ride from Ryan Moore. Success for the Coolmore team in one race, but an agonising near-miss in another as Declaration Of War was pipped a nose and a head in the Breeders’ Cup Classic. Campaigned daringly by Ballydoyle and his breeder Joseph Allen, the son of War Command took in eight starts, seven at the highest level, and ran away with two, the Queen Anne Stakes and Juddmonte International. That second victory saw the four-year-old hold off Irish Derby winner Trading Leather and another of the season’s top older horses, Al Kazeem.

Cloud covers herself in glory with unprecedented Deauville double Arc heroine Treve aside, it was the spellbinding performances of a George Strawbridge homebred and group 1 wins for the niarchos family that lit up THE year by Scott Burton

I

F THE broadest smile seen on French racecourses for much of the season was spor ted by Criquette Head-Maarek, with Treve sweeping all-comers aside en route to Arc glory, then brother Freddy had plenty of reasons to be just as happy with the progress of Moonlight Cloud at the age of five. George Strawbridge’s homebred daughter of Invincible Spirit began the season having already proved herself one of the most talented mares in training. Yet Head could not be blamed for wondering what might have been in 2012, given Moonlight Cloud’s near-miss behind Black Caviar at Ascot, as well as a luckless fourth in the Prix Jacques le Marois just seven days after blowing away her rivals in the Maurice de Gheest. The team set about modifying her programme to give her the best chance of righting those wrongs. Out would go the royal meeting as well as the Prix du Moulin and Breeders’ Cup. Strawbridge gave Head carte blanche to pursue the unprecedented Deauville

Group 1 double, a feat that Moonlight Cloud achieved in a pair of spellbinding performances – albeit Thierry Jarnet may have had his and other hearts in mouths at the climax to the Prix Jacques le Marois. Dominance

The fact remains Moonlight Cloud defeated arguably the starriest field assembled anywhere on a racecourse in 2013 in the Marois, before going on to underline her dominance with an insouciant display in the Prix de la Forêt. It was perhaps appropriate the Prix Jacques le Marois should provide one of the defining moments in 2013 under the banner of the Niarchos family’s Haras de Fresnay-le-Buffard. The famous two-tone blue Niarchos silks enjoyed a triumphant return to centre stage, with Maxios and Karakontie supplying three Group 1 wins where none had come since Light Shift’s Oaks success of 2007. Karakontie capped a fine juvenile campaign with a comfortable success in the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardère, running down the Spanish-trained Noozhoh Canarias. Winning rider Stéphane Pasquier

revealed afterwards his powerful finish was down to carrying his son’s good-luck Pokémon cards. Meanwhile, the genetic strength of Karakontie – whose only defeat came after a fierce duel with the Richard Hannon-trained Bunker in the Prix François Boutin – was derived from his late sire Bernstein and the Sunday Silence mare Sun Is Up, herself a granddaughter of the great Miesque. Whatever Karakontie achieves in 2014, it will have to go some way to match the satisfaction brought to Pasquier and quietly spoken trainer Jonathan Pease by the top-table arrival of Maxios. A half-brother to Arc winner Bago and a Classic hopeful following his Prix Thomas Bryon success as far back as 2010, the five-year-old repaid the patience of his entourage with a string of big-race performances. Having finally run in a first Group 1 when finding only Pastorius too good in the Prix Ganay, Maxios then dominated his rivals in the Prix d’Ispahan. Following a sixth-place finish at Ascot, the team then took the bold step of bringing him back to a mile for the first time since K

that juvenile success at Saint-Cloud three years earlier. Maxios left Olympic Glory five lengths adrift with the Poule d’Essai-winning duo of Flotilla and Style Vendome even further back in a decisive Prix du Moulin display. Maxios was one of three individual Group 1 winners for the late Monsun in France, a tally matched only by Galileo. Monsun’s daughter Silasol landed the Prix Saint-Alary on the same Longchamp card as the Ispahan, while Andreas Wöhler got Novellist’s Group 1 bandwagon rolling for the year with victory in the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud. Galileo’s flag-bearer for 2013 was undoubtedly Prix du Jockey Club hero Intello, who was campaigned with flair by André Fabre and the Wertheimer brothers. While his sole Group 1 success came at Chantilly, Intello also earned plaudits for versatility, with placed efforts over a mile in the Poule d’Essai des Poulains and Prix Jacques le Marois, before chasing home Treve and Orfevre in the Arc. Intello will now take up stud duties at Cheveley Park for two seasons before transferring to Haras du Quesnay. Galileo did sire a winner on Arc day thanks to Cadran hero Altano, and also struck at Deauville with Romantica in the Prix Jean Romanet for Fabre and Khalid Abdullah. The daughter of Banks Hill then found only Dank too good when attempting to emulate her dam in the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf.

The Niarchos family enjoyed Group 1 success after a six-year hiatus with Maxios (Prix d’Ispahan and Prix du Moulin) and Karakontie (left, Prix Jean-Luc Lagardère)

Abdullah also enjoyed success thanks to Flintshire, an impressive winner of the Juddmontesponsored Grand Prix de Paris and one to look out for on a sound surface if, as expected, he stays in training at four. Challenge

When Fabre finally tires of dominating the sport in France, Mikel Delzangles might be the man best placed to challenge for championship honours. Almost unthinkable among his Chantilly

brethren, Delzangles sent out Flotilla to land the Poule d’Essai des Pouliches on her first start of the season. That was a maiden domestic Classic success for Delzangles, matching the feat of Poule d’Essai des Poulains winner Nicolas Clément, whose triumph with Style Vendome came the small matter of 23 years after winning the Arc with Saumarez. For all the success of French trainers in securing most of their country’s richest prizes – Britain and Ireland accounted for just three of the 27 Group 1s on offer courtesy of Elusive Kate, Maarek and Tac De Boistron – the most remarkable triumph surely belongs to Wesley Ward. Ward became the first US trainer to win a top French prize when No Nay Never defeated future Group 1 heroines Vorda and Rizeena in the Prix Morny. Moreover, he pushed the possibilities of travelling young horses further than anyone had previously dared. No Nay Never broke the course record in Royal Ascot’s Norfolk Stakes before returning to Florida-based Ward’s satellite operation at Keeneland. Less than 60 days later the son of Scat Daddy was back in Europe, receiving the acclaim from a packed Deauville winner’s enclosure following his Morny triumph. t

HE headline story in North America in 2013 did not come from a horse. Rather, it was the improbable comeback of Hall of Fame jockey Gary Stevens after a seven-year retirement hiatus that commanded the most significant interest. You could not make it up. Three-time Kentucky Derby-winning jockey Stevens was 49 when he looked at himself in the mirror and decided he did not like what he saw. Stevens took drastic action and put himself through a boot camp in Washington State before his unlikely return to the saddle in southern California in January. There were no shortage of sceptics, yet ten months later he had won a string of Grade 1 races, among them the Preakness Stakes on Oxbow and both the Breeders’ Cup Classic and Distaff on Mucho Macho Man and Beholder. Now 50, he even found time to drop into Ascot to ride a winner at the Shergar Cup in August. The Breeders’ Cup Classic provided a fitting finale to two spell-binding days at Santa Anita as a three-horse thriller also featuring Will Take Charge and Ballydoyle’s Declaration Of War ended in a highly emotional fairytale finish as Mucho Macho Man just held on under Stevens for trainer Kathy Ritvo, the first woman to train the winner of the race. A year ago, Stevens was still working for NBC before his epic comeback; six years ago, heart-transplant survivor Ritvo was close to death as her vital organ failed. Even Mucho Macho Man himself tugged at the heartstrings, since the son of Macho Uno, named after a Village People song, was thought dead when he was foaled, appearing lifeless with no heartbeat. Completely unresponsive to the urgings of farm staff for several minutes, he suddenly just got up and galloped away. Now this unlikely trio had teamed up to win North America’s richest race on the nod, foiling the late charge of Will Take Charge, a son of Unbridled’s Song trained by none other than Stevens’ old sparring partner D Wayne Lukas, back in the big time this year at the age of 78. One significant feature of the Classic was the eclipse of west-coast hero Game On Dude; sent off favourite for the second year running after a string

Meanwhile, having already won the Travers Stakes and Pennsylvania Derby, Will Take Charge had clambered to the top of the three-year-old class after another muddling season that saw all three legs of the Triple Crown fall to different horses. Orb’s mud-splattered victory in the Kentucky Derby could hardly have been more popular given his old-money connections; the Malibu Moon colt was homebred by the Janney and Phipps

dynasties and trained by Shug McGaughey. But although Orb looked to have stamped his authority on the division at Churchill Downs, his lustre dimmed as the season progressed. Oxbow, representing the resurgent Lukas and Stevens, made all to win the Preakness, while the Todd Pletcher-trained Palace Malice stayed best in that annual idiosyncrasy, the Belmont Stakes. Verrazano’s runaway performance to win the Haskell then looked enough to suggest the sole defeat of his life in the Kentucky Derby could be regarded as a sloppy-track shambles; subsequent defeats in the Travers and the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile were less auspicious. In particular, the Travers was a memorable encounter, and not merely for a thrilling finish as Will Take Charge touched off K racingpost.com/bloodstock

front-running Moreno. The latter’s trainer Eric Guillot, a character perhaps best described as ‘colourful’, accused winning jockey Luis Saez of using a battery – an illegal electrical device, also known as a buzzer – to propel his mount in the dying strides. The charges were thrown out, leading to a half-hearted apology a couple of months later when the pair met again at the Breeders’ Cup. Aside from Wise Dan on the lawn, a notable feature of the 2013 season was the unprecedented success of leading owners Ken and Sarah Ramsey with horses sired by their stallion Kitten’s Joy, easily recognisable as most of them have the word ‘kitten’ in their name. With the males largely failing to set pulses racing, it was yet again down to their female counterparts to save the day in quality terms. After a second dismal trip to Dubai, reigning champ Royal Delta returned to her best with a couple of thumping victories that sent her back as favourite to the Breeders’ Cup Distaff, thankfully reverted to its original title. But she could not emulate Goldikova by becoming only the second horse to win three Cup races, failing to fire any sort of shot as Gary Stevens partnered last year’s Juvenile Fillies’ scorer Beholder to an emphatic verdict for Richard Mandella. Perhaps the most unfair aspect of the distaff division concerned Kentucky Oaks winner Princess Of Sylmar, however. After completing a Grade 1 four-timer for trainer Todd Pletcher, the daughter of Majestic Warrior – who beat Beholder at Churchill Downs and then downed Royal Delta in the Beldame – looked a certainty to be named three-year-old filly champion. As Princess Of Sylmar was not Breeders’ Cup-nominated, everyone expected her to miss Santa Anita, only for owner Ed Stanco to take the sporting decision to stump up $100,000 for a late entry. Her connections did not deserve the fate that befell her: shipped across country to the west coast from her New York base, she fell out of the gate and was then faced with the sort of ludicrous front-end pace bias that gave a late closer such as her no sort of chance. Several divisions lacked any sort of clarity. Santa Anita Derby victor Goldencents – a

Dan definitely the man for Horse of the Year honours WITH the main dirt track producing no clearly dominant performer, the way is left clear for the rags-to-riches superstar Wise Dan to retain his Horse of the Year crown. And frankly, he should. Okay, there may well be some merit to criticism that his connections have followed an unambitious programme, but once again he barely lost a step, although this time his progress was not completely serene thanks to that rarest of birds: a defeat. Albeit a narrow reverse in the Shadwell Turf Mile in October, an odd race given that in the end it was neither run on turf nor over a mile after a storm of biblical proportions rendered the Keeneland turf unraceable and the $750,000 contest was transferred to the Polytrack, where the configuration meant a mile and a sixteenth was the distance. Drawn wide, Wise Dan was jostled at the first turn, raced four wide throughout and just failed to peg back in-form front-runner Silver Max. The same horse was miles behind as Wise Dan thundered down the straight to complete back-to-back successes in the Breeders’ Cup Mile. Wise Dan is a truly admirable racehorse. Not exactly blueblood material, this chestnut

gelding with a narrow white blaze is trained by little-known Charles LoPresti and owned by octogenarian Morton Fink, an owner-breeder whose broodmare team stretches to just one horse – Wise Dan’s dam Lisa Danielle. She cost $29,000 as a yearling and was kept by Fink mainly for sentimental reasons as she is named after his granddaughter. She won just one race. Wise Dan is the best progeny of Wiseman’s Ferry, winner of the 2002 West Virginia Derby, while his dam is a daughter of South African stallion Wolf Power. But for a head, the six-year-old would have been unbeaten for two years before that Keeneland shock, his only defeat during that spell coming in the Grade 1 Stephen Foster Handicap on dirt at Churchill Downs, where he narrowly failed to give 4lb to top older horse Ron The Greek (who, incidentally, posted one of the best displays of the year when slamming Palace Malice in the Jockey Club Gold Cup).

Wise Dan: a truly admirable racehorse

son of Beholder’s half-brother Into Mischief – put in a late claim for three-year-old championship honours when riding the speed bias for a daylight victory in the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile. Bob Baffert pulled off a major training feat when Secret Circle won the Sprint, having returned only three weeks previously after an 18-month layoff. He could easily win an Eclipse Award here by default; the only serious rival was probably

than wondrous. As for the fillies, well, She’s A Tiger is probably on top after crossing the wire first in the Juvenile Fillies, only to lose the race to longshot Ria Antonia after a minor bout of bumping. Victories for British visitors Outstrip and Chriselliam at the Breeders’ Cup suggested there were few stars in the ranks of US turf juveniles. Groupie Doll and Mizdirection both merit a special mention after defending their Breeders’ Cup crowns in the Filly & Mare Sprint and the Turf Sprint; within days of their Santa Anita triumphs, both had been sold for a couple of million and more. The anti-bleeding medication furosemide, better known by former trade name Lasix, shows no signs of dropping off the agenda after pressure from US horsemen forced the Breeders’ Cup to pull back on its decision to outlaw the substance in two-year-old races. Lasix will again be permitted across the board in 2014. AUSTRALASIA

DARLEY shuttler Exceed And Excel was crowned Australia’s champion sire for the 2012-13 season after his progeny dominated the country’s showpiece two-year-old races. His daughter Overreach led home her paternal half-brother Sidestep in the Golden Slipper at Rosehill in April and a week later she finished third to her paternal half-sister Guelph (fourth in the Slipper) in the Inglis Sires Produce Stakes at Randwick. Guelph – who emulated her dam Camarilla with victory in that race – went on to land the Champagne Stakes later in April and the Darley homebred filly started her three-year-old season in perfect style, recording victories in two more Group 1s, the Coolmore Flight Stakes and Schweppes Thousand Guineas. Exceed And Excel had the ultimate tribute paid to him when he was chosen as the first mate for outstanding sprinter Black Caviar, who took her unbeaten record to 25 in 2013 with victories in the Lightning Stakes, William Reid Stakes and TJ Smith Stakes. Overreach’s trainer Gai Waterhouse racingpost.com/ipad

secured a first Melbourne Cup in November with last year’s runner-up Fiorente, one of five Group 1 winners worldwide for the late, lamented German sire Monsun this year after Estimate, Maxios, Novellist and Silasol. A first Melbourne Cup still eludes British trainers, with Ed Dunlop’s Red Cadeaux second and Luca Cumani’s Mount Athos in third, but European breeders can feel pleased with themselves that all of the first five home, including the Ballymacoll-bred, formerly Sir Michael Stoute-trained winner, were bred in Britain and Ireland. Results like that have fuelled strong demand from Australian owners and trainers for British and Irish-trained middle-distance horses and stayers. DUBAI

ANIMAL KINGDOM goes down as a US winner of the Dubai World Cup but no horse in training this year demonstrated the globalisation of racing more clearly. The 2011 Kentucky Derby hero was trained in Maryland by British-born Graham Motion for the international racing syndicate Team Valor. Born in Kentucky, he is by the Brazilianbred Grade 1-winning miler Leroidesanimaux out of German-bred Group 3 winner Dalicia, a daughter of Acatenango. After misfiring in the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot, Animal Kingdom was retired to Arrowfield Stud in Australia and, thanks to a part-purchase by Darley, will shuttle to Jonabell Farm in Kentucky in 2014. Leroidesanimaux, meanwhile, has been acquired by Lanwades Stud in Newmarket. More international flavour was added to Dubai World Cup night with victories for South African raider Shea Shea, a son of National Emblem, in the Al Quoz Sprint, and for Dubai-trained Reynaldothewizard, by leading Kentucky speed sire Speightstown, in the Dubai Golden Shaheen. Aidan O’Brien sent Lines Of Battle, another reason why the Coolmore team are so enamoured with War Front, Gai Waterhouse: a first Melbourne Cup for the first lady of Australian racing

to win the UAE Derby, while St Nicholas Abbey became Ballydoyle’s highest earner with a score in the Sheema Classic. Godolphin’s King’s Best mare Sajjhaa gave Sheikh Mohammed a home victory in the Dubai Duty Free. JAPAN

DEEP IMPACT continued his ascent to sire stardom this year by supplying Japan’s Derby winner Kizuna, subsequently an admirable fourth in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, 1,000 Guineas winner Ayusan, Victoria Mile scorer Verxina, Mile Championship scorer Tosen Ra and, for good measure, a Japan Cup one-two as Gentildonna made history when winning the race for the second time, on this occasion under Ryan Moore, from paternal half-sister Denim And Ruby. Shadai Farm’s brilliant son of Sunday Silence did not have it all his way, however. His studmate King Kamehameha was responsible for one of Japan’s brightest domestic stars, Lord Kanaloa, who landed two Grade 1 sprints and another over a mile. Like Ayusan and Kizuna, Lord Kanaloa is out of a mare by Storm Cat. Expect Japanese breeders to snap up more daughters of the Overbrook Farm colossus, who died this year, at future breeding-stock sales. Another to endear themselves to Japanese racing fans in 2013 was Meisho Mambo, who recorded a hat-trick of Grade 1 victories. Yoshio Matsumoto’s homebred filly is by one of Sunday Silence’s lesser-known sire sons, Suzuka Mambo, who is out of a mare by King Kamehameha’s sire Kingmambo. SOUTH AFRICA

FORMER Gestüt Fährhof resident and now Maine Chance Farms-based Silvano was rewarded for providing five top-flight winners in the 2012-13 season with South African champion sire honours. One of the quintet, Heavy Metal, landed the country’s most prestigious race, the Durban July, on the same weekend that Lucky Speed, a colt from his sire’s final German crop, won the Deutsches Derby. Varsfontein Stud had to fend off offers from Kentucky for its sire Judpot, an unraced son of A.P. Indy and Miesque, after he achieved the rare feat of getting two Grade 1-winning juveniles – Along Came Polly and Forest Indigo – in his first crop. 

New names step up to fill the void

BOBS THE BOSS IN GOLD CUP WHILE SUPER SACRE REIGNS SUPREME BY TOM PENNINGTON

J

UMPS enthusiasts went into the 2012-13 season with a sense of uncertainty. Who was going to fill the gaping void left by the then recently retired big guns Kauto Star and Denman as well as the ill-fated Synchronised in the Cheltenham Gold Cup? There was no need to worry, as this year’s showpiece developed into one of the races of the season with the diminutive but lion-hearted Bobs Worth illuminating a rain-drenched Prestbury Park on the Friday of festival week. Nicky Henderson’s eight-year-old, who was bought for €16,500 as a yearling by his big-race jockey Barry Geraghty before being sold to The Not Afraid Partnership for £20,000, was sent off the 11-4 favourite after demolishing a strong field in the Hennessy, but he would have been trading at considerably bigger prices half a mile from home. The son of Bob Back was slow to respond when the pace quickened at the top of the hill and his chance looked to have been severely hindered when he had to sidestep Silviniaco Conti, who crashed out at the third-last when still travelling strongly. The race looked set up for a pair of French-breds – past winner and reigning King George holder Long Run and dual Cheltenham Festival winner Sir Des Champs. The last-named was bidding to become a second winner of the week for jumping’s latest sire sensation Robin Des Champs following standing dish Quevega, who landed a memorable fifth David Nicholson Mares’ Hurdle on the opening day. However, Bobs Worth went into overdrive when he met the rising ground and put in a spring-heeled leap at the final fence. He stormed up the hill, just as he had in the previous year’s RSA Chase, to run out a comprehensive seven-length winner. The form was bolstered when Gold Cup runner-up Sir Des Champs led home Long Run in the following month’s Punchestown Gold Cup.

It was not a vintage renewal of the Champion Hurdle but Hurricane Fly, by far and away the best jumper sired by the late Montjeu, stayed on dourly to become the first horse to reclaim the race since Sprinter Sacre (left) and Bobs Worth

Comedy Of Errors in 1975. He capped a memorable season at Punchestown in April when capturing his fifth Grade 1 of the campaign, his record-equalling 16th in all. The two-mile chase division was a one-horse show. Nothing could get within touching distance of the mighty Sprinter Sacre, who sauntered to a stunning 19-length success over Sizing Europe in the Queen Mother Champion Chase following easy victories in the Tingle Creek Chase and Victor Chandler Chase. It would have been easy for Henderson to wrap up the seven-year-old son of Network in cotton wool and draw stumps for the season after the festival, but he ran him at Aintree, where he slammed Ryanair Chase winner Cue Card over 2m4f in the Melling Chase, before crowning a vintage campaign and showcasing his extraordinary talent in

front of an appreciative crowd at Punchestown with victory over Sizing Europe. Sprinter Sacre’s sire is by Monsun, who in the coming years looks sure to have a big influence on the National Hunt sphere. His young sire sons are already beginning to make their mark.

Big Buck’s was grounded after picking up a leg injury following a bloodless victory in the Long Distance Hurdle at Newbury, which left the door ajar for a new champion in the staying hurdle division. The French-bred Solwhit, by German Group 1 winner Solon, completed a splendid comeback with a smooth win in the World Hurdle. Connections had to wait almost two years for a leg injury to come right, but it was worth it. The nine-year-old, given a typically ice-cool ride by Paul Carberry, always travelled strongly and was produced just before the final flight before sticking on well to deny Galileo’s leading hurdler Celestial Halo, who subsequently made amends with a Grade 2 win at Auteuil. Solwhit was equally as impressive at Aintree but was firmly put in his place in the French Champion Hurdle by emerging home talent Gemix, a five-year-old son of the young Linamix stallion Carlotamix, who switched to Coolagown Stud in 2013. There was an almighty turn-up in the Grand National when 66-1 shot Auroras Encore stormed to a nine-length success. The 11-year-old is by the late Second Empire, who has had his share of talented jumpers, including Grade 1-winning chaser Somersby, who scooped one of the big prizes of the nascent 2013-14 jumps season, the Haldon Gold Cup at Exeter in November. 

YEARLING SALES

Hopes for Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale were skyscraper-high and no-one was disappointed after three days that witnessed record-breaking turnover

L

AST year’s Bloodstock Review described the market as “standing tall in defiance of wider economic issues”. Twelve months on it would perhaps be more apt to depict the sales scene as King Kong-esque in stature, swatting doomsayers from the sky and roaring record-breaking sums left, right and centre, writes Katherine Fidler. And at the centre, once again, was the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale Book 1. On the back of fortified trade at earlier auctions in Britain, Ireland and France, expectations were skyscraper-high ahead of the prestigious auction, bolstered higher still by the not-inconsiderable haul of its graduates this year. One yet to make his mark is last year’s 2,500,000gns sale-topper Hydrogen, a three-parts brother to Derby hero Authorized. Few who were present will forget the equine theatre enjoyed that evening, but the feverish

anticipation before this year’s renewal led many to believe that figure could be challenged by the stellar cast of exquisitely bred yearlings on show – perhaps even by Hydrogen’s brother. Alas that was not to be, the son of Galileo being one of several expensive buybacks when knocked down to John Oxx for

It would perhaps be more apt to depict the sales scene as King Kong-esque 500,000gns. However, by that point buyers, vendors and spectators had already witnessed another piece of history when a daughter of Alluring Park fetched ten times that price to become the world’s most expensive yearling filly sold at public auction. It also served as the most high-profile of

many a clash between racing superpowers new and old as the Al Thani family dared to take on the might of the Magniers – Sheikh Joaan Al Thani winning this round. There seems little need to ask who could sire a specimen capable of commanding five million guineas – it was, of course, Galileo, who was responsible for three of the four seven-figure lots during the sale, including a brother to dual Oaks runner-up Secret Gesture who broke the European record price for a yearling when knocked down to Coolmore for 3,600,000gns (a new high that stood for less than 24 hours). Book 1 is a hard act to follow, but Book 2 is practised in the art of making its own mark and did so this year not only by producing five Group 1-winning graduates but by toppling its own record turnover, up more than 17 per cent on the previous high set just 12 months earlier. Not content with just a record K

YEARLING SALES

aggregate, the 87 per cent clearance rate and 37,000gns median also raised the bar for future renewals. Arqana once again served as Europe’s traditional curtain-raiser and put on quite the show as young agent James Harron brushed aside Sheikh Joaan to secure a daughter of Dubawi for €1,500,000. Boasting four seven-figure lots during the sale – including a Galileo three-parts sister to Irish Oaks winner Chicquita knocked down for a square million – the Deauville sale/party certainly helped buyers dust off the cheque books. Rising tide

And so the sales circus travelled from Deauville to Doncaster. Different on many counts, DBS has built a reputation for tough, precocious youngsters, often at prices that transpire to be on the bargain side of reasonable. However, as would prove the case right through to December, a rising tide lifts all boats and figures were up across the board with a soaring average and median coupled with a 90 per cent clearance rate. Many of the above buyers were bound for Baden-Baden the following morning, jetting to the BBAG sales complex for an auction comprising a catalogue many hailed as “the best ever”. It upheld the upwards trend as the ball rolled on to Tattersalls Ireland. The company’s September yearling sale has never been billed as an Irish equivalent to its Newmarket counterpart and as such the hammer often falls on prices below that of its European contemporaries. Less so this year, however, when a €180,000 Yeats colt helped the sale post its best returns since recession crippled the country. Ireland’s premier yearling auction, the Goffs Orby Sale, also recorded post-2008 returns with the company rewarded for persuading Irish breeders to offer some

The €2,850,000 son of Montjeu and Finsceal Beo who sold at Goffs, the second most expensive yearling ever sold in Ireland

of their best produce at home rather than abroad. A son of Montjeu and dual Guineas winner Finsceal Beo added €2,850,000 to the pot and became the second most expensive yearling ever sold in the country, a price driven skywards by the duel between MV Magnier and Ross Doyle – who bought several yearlings for Sheikh Joaan at Tattersalls. Team Coolmore emerged victorious. A session of 20 lots at the Goffs November Sale was topped by a €50,000 Mastercraftsman filly, while a son of Rip Van Winkle rerouted from Book 1 led the way at the one-day Tattersalls December Sale when knocked down to BBA Ireland’s Patrick Cooper for 200,000gns. Average and median here increased by 14 and 15 per cent while the aggregate of 3,570,100gns

1 59

was only marginally down despite 21 per cent fewer horses being offered. It seems nigh-impossible to imagine the yearling sale season that dominates the calendar throughout autumn actually commences in July, but such is the case when the Fasig-Tipton July Sale, the first major event of the year, kicks off proceedings from a balmy Kentucky, before swiftly moving on to the company’s Saratoga sale. A boutique sale that generally fetches the first six-figures sums of the season, Saratoga did not disappoint – a $1,225,000 Dynaformer filly topping the bill – with a negligible dip in aggregate and average compensated for by an 11 per cent rise in median. But if Fasig-Tipton lifts the curtain, Keeneland provides a truly spectacular opening scene. The sale swung into action with a four-day Book 1 extravaganza that brought in a total of $153,385,000, $2,500,000 of which came from a colt by War Front – whose winning progeny elevated their sire’s status immeasurably on both sides of the Atlantic – knocked down to the increasingly familiar auctioneers’ staple: “sold to MV Magnier.” Many levels

However, amid the celebratory reflection on a year that has surpassed all expectation, let it not be forgotten King Kong was to be found atop the Empire State Building and, like New York’s most famous landmark, the sales scene is one of many levels. Buyers remained selective, and for vendors aiming at the middle-to-lower end of the market it was not the plain sailing it appeared at the top – which itself at times saw a notable dip in trade when one or more of the major players were absent. Nevertheless, 2013 marked a return to form for the industry. t

HOWING and studying yearlings on a hot day at the Arqana sales complex at Deauville in August is thirsty work, but luckily for buyers, vendors and agents, the Racing Post and Weatherbys teamed up to provide refreshment in the opulent surroundings of the Hôtel Royal Barrière.

To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the party, a celebration cake was made. It was only ornamental but that did not matter as the Hôtel Royal’s chefs put on an array of culinary delights including oysters, smoked salmon and foie gras. Glorious sunshine – which, alas, has not been a regular guest down the

years – allowed the restaurant doors to the gardens to be opened and the party spilled outside. Racing Post chief executive Alan Byrne, Weatherbys client relations director Nick Cheyne and Hôtel Royal general manager Laurent Roussin made speeches toasting ten years of the event.

AUSTRALIA

Six months before the record-breaking yearling fireworks at Tattersalls, the Australian high mark for a yearling was shattered by a half-brother to Black Caviar purchased for A$5 million at the Inglis Easter Yearling Sale in Sydney. The son of Redoute’s Choice is also a brother to last year’s sale-topper, the filly Belle Couture who was purchased for A$2.6m. BC3 Thoroughbreds was responsible for the purchase of both lots, with Adam Sangster the underbidder on the 2013 sale-topper. The colt was the third Inglis sale-topper out of the Desert Sun mare Helsinge following the subsequent Group 1 winner All Too Hard, by Casino Prince, who was purchased for A$1,025,000 in 2011. But by mid-November the yearling’s life hung in the balance after he developed laminitis following a spider bite while in his paddock. The previous record of A$3m, which had stood since 2007, was also surpassed by a Fastnet Rock colt purchased by Emirates Park for A$4m. The nine seven-figure lots all helped boost returns significantly, with aggregate for the three-day Session 1 rising by 16 per cent, the average by a near-32 per cent and the median by 25 per cent. Fastnet Rock was responsible for the highest price of the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale, with Coolmore going to A$1.35m for a colt out of a sister to multiple Group 1 winner Super Elegant. The dispersal of mining magnate Nathan Tinkler’s bloodstock lit up the Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale in May, with Coolmore once again topping proceedings with the progeny of Fastnet Rock. On this occasion the operation went to A$1.55m to secure the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes heroine Nechita. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Khalifa Al Maktoum purchased the sale’s other seven-figure lot, paying A$1.05m for the regally bred Sadler’s Wells mare Endless, an unraced sister to Powerscourt and a half-sister to Frankel’s dam Kind. A Manduro yearling out of the same mare sold for A$500,000 during the National Yearling Sale but was reportedly bought back by Tinkler. The owner

NEW ZEALAND

Demand for progeny of Fastnet Rock was sky-high on both sides of the Tasman in 2013, with Tom Magnier topping t h e N Z B Pre m i e r Ye a r l i n g Sale at Karaka when paying NZ$1,975,000 for a colt by the southern hemisphere super sire. That price was NZ$225,000 more than last year’s high mark, also for a Fastnet Rock yearling, after Magnier saw off David Ellis and Peter Moody to land the spoils. Although aggregate for the two-day Premier Sale fell by NZ$3,085,500 for Nathan Tinkler: the mining magnate was in hot water with Inglis and Magic Millions

27 fewer horses sold, the average improved slightly while the median held steady. NZB has always relied on a strong international buying bench and the company was not disappointed this year with significant expenditure from Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia adding to Kiwi buying. First-season sires provided the sale-toppers during both the Select and Festival sessions. Thewayyouare led the way during the three-day NZB Select Yearling Sale with a half-brother to a Listed-placed winner heading to Hong Kong when snapped up for NZ$200,000, while a Swiss Ace colt set a record price at the Festival Sale when purchased for NZ$125,000 by Rogerson Bloodstock.

The JRHA Select Foal Sale recorded its second consecutive year of gains, with a 15 per cent-plus rise in aggregate and more than ten per cent jump in average. Deep Impact yet again dominated proceedings, accounting for seven of

the top ten foals and six of the top ten yearlings. The most pricey of his foals was Northern Farm’s colt out of US champion Azeri snapped up by Desk Valet Co. Ltd for ¥240,000,000. Northern Farms’ international approach was also reflected by the second most expensive foal, a colt out of the Argentine multiple Grade 1 winner Malpensa, bought by Hajime Satomi for ¥230,000,000. The four most expensive yearlings were all by Deep Impact. They were headed by Northern Farm’s brother to two winners out of Grade 2 winner Shes All Eltish, purchased by Riichi Kondo for ¥180,000,000. Paul Fudge’s Waratah Thoroughbreds was also in action during the yearling session, signing for lots including a Tapit colt out of the Cherry Hinton-placed Art Princess, bought for ¥80,000,000. David Redvers made his presence felt too, signing for two yearlings, including a King Kamehameha colt for ¥90,000,000, as well as three foals.

SOUTH AFRICA

The third renewal of the Cape Thoroughbreds Premier Yearling Sale proved the strongest yet with the record price broken twice during the opening session. New owner Adriaan van Vuuren went to R3,250,000 for the top lot, a Silvano colt offered by Andreas Jacobs’ Maine Chance Farm who is a brother to multiple winner and Grade 3-placed filly Romantic Moon.

year’s top price of R2.8m was also eclipsed by a Dynasty colt out of a Listed-winning half-sister to Artie Schiller – a half-brother to last year’s sale-topper – bought by Form Bloodstock for R3m. The Emperors Palace National Yearling Sales recorded its second-highest price ever when a Dynasty half-brother to the Grade 1-placed Chave De Oura was purchased by Markus Jooste for R3.6m. In early November, the Ready To Run Sale of two-year-olds was headed by an Encosta De Lago colt bought by Misty Meadows for R1.8m, adding to the highest aggregate in the sale’s history. 

Goffs Ready to Run at Kempton

Seven months is a long time in racing. When the curtain fell on the 2013 Goffs Ready To Run Sale at Kempton on a freezing March afternoon the sale looked solid but unspectacular, with both the aggregate and clearance rate showing declines on 2012. Bids of £70,000 was all it took to top the sale, with the partnership of Stephen Hillen and Kevin Ryan twice offering that amount. In October, however, one of those colts, a son of first-crop sire Intense Focus consigned by Grove Stud, landed the Group 1 Middle Park Stakes as Astaire. The other, a Holy Roman Emperor colt named Sleeper King, also won, albeit a minor contest. The decline in aggregate can be excused by a slightly smaller catalogue than in 2012, but this sale continues to draw trainers and post good results on the racecourse.

Tattersalls Craven

A record-breaking year for Tattersalls first hit the heights at the company’s premier breeze-up sale when a European record price of 760,000gns was set, eclipsing the previous mark of 625,000gns. Jamie McCalmont signed the ticket for the Lynn Lodge Stud-consigned son of Elusive Quality, a half-brother to the Group 2-placed Quarrel. A rare purchase of a Darley-bred by Coolmore, the colt was named Great White Eagle and went on to win the Group 3 Round Tower Stakes. A catalogue almost identical in size to 2012’s produced an increase in aggregate of nearly eight per cent to 9,235,000gns, while the average leapt by more than 22 per cent to 89,660gns. The median did not follow suit however, dropping by 8.3 per cent, while the clearance rate of just 66 per cent told its own story of a selective market.

price to £30,401, a negligible decline on the previous year, but the sale also posted notable declines in both aggregate (15.3 per cent) and median (16.7 per cent). Last year’s record price of £300,000 could not be bettered, but a trio of six-figure lots led the way, headed by a Lawman filly consigned by Mocklershill and purchased for

A very satisfactory clearance rate of 81 per cent proved buyers at every level were in attendance at DBS, assisting the average

£210,000 by Richard Brown of Blandford Bloodstock for Al Asayl Bloodstock Ltd. Named Minnaloushe, the filly has twice finished runner-up in all-weather maidens at two for John Gosden. A colt at the opposite end of the price scale proved the sale’s best performer, with Treaty Of Paris, a son of Haatef purchased

for just £16,000 by trainer Henry Candy, landing the Group 3 Acomb Stakes. Tattersalls Guineas

The Tattersalls Guineas breeze-up saw four lots bring six-figure sums in 2013, compared to just one in 2012, and the aggregate, for a slightly larger catalogue, gain more than nine per cent. Set against that, however, was both the average and median declined slightly. Richard Brown of Blandford Bloodstock bagged the sale-topper, going to 110,000gns for a Teofilo half-brother to Group 1 winner Caradak. The colt was a great pinhooking success for Adrian Costello’s Clenagh Castle Stud, which paid just €25,000 for the colt at Goffs the previous autumn. Once again, the best performer thus far from the sale emerged lower down the price range, with Hot Streak, bought by David Redvers for 42,000gns, landing the Group 3 Cornwallis Stakes and finishing second to Astaire in the Middle Park Stakes.

ARQANA

It was Sea The Stars who once again provided the ‘X factor’ at Arqana when Marco Botti smashed the sale record by purchasing a son of the first-season sire for €520,000 on behalf of Sheikh Mohammed Bin Khalifa Al Maktoum. Out of a Listed winner from the family of Poliglote, the colt was a €200,000 yearling purchase but the pinhooking gamble certainly paid off. Nicolas de Watrigant’s Mandore International came off second-best for the top lot but struck for the second most pricey just one lot later, paying €230,000 for a Raven’s Pass half-brother to Grade 1 winner Mast Track. Such lofty purchases contributed to a 2.6 per cent upturn in aggregate, while the average increased by a fifth. BBAG, GORESBRIDGE, OSARUS & BRIGHTWELLS ASCOT

A bid of £25,000 was all it took to top the Brightwells auction, which returned to the calendar after a year’s hiatus. Ed de Giles paid that sum for a War Chant colt from Knockanglass Stables.

Record-breaker Immortal Verse hits right note at 4,700,000gns fRANKEL FACTOR AND HIGH-LEVEL DISPERSAL PAVE WAY FOR NEW HIGH MARKS AT tATTERSALLS AND gOFFS WHILE bREEDERS’ cUP STARS LIGHT UP THE ACTION IN kENTUCKY by Sophia Barnett TATTERSALLS DECEMBER

As a climax to a record-breaking year at Park Paddocks, the Tattersalls December Breeding Stock Sale saw the European record broken for a broodmare when the hammer fell on dual Group 1 winner Immortal Verse at 4,700,000gns. Purchased by Adrian Nicoll of BBA Ireland for Coolmore, Immortal Verse surpassed by 100,000gns the sum paid for Magical Romance in 2006. In foal to Dansili, Coronation Stakes and Prix Jacques le Marois heroine Immortal Verse was one of five mares to breach the million-guinea barrier during the four-day breeding-stock section of the auction. Of the ten mares offered in foal to the mighty Frankel, it was unsurprisingly the Oaks winner Dancing Rain who drew the most attention. In a sales ring packed more fully than many could remember, the

daughter of Danehill Dancer was fought over by Grant Pritchard-Gordon, David Minton and Rob Speers before John Ferguson purchased her for Sheikh Mohammed with a single winning bid of 4,000,000gns. The Frankel factor was also at play in the purchase of the Group-winning Dansili mare Dream Peace. Although not yet at stud, the mare was purchased for 2,700,000gns by Hugo Lascelles with the intention of covering her with the great champion in the spring. Coolmore were also in action via agent Stephen Hillen, securing the Cheveley Park Stakes heroine Rosdhu Queen for 2,100,000gns, while another young Group-winning filly, Purr Along, became the fifth lot of the week to make seven figures when purchased by a partnership between Newsells Park Stud and Sheikh Fahad Al Thani for 1,000,000gns. Returns soared across the board for the

four-day mares’ segment, with the aggregate of 62,997,700gns an increase of more than 43 per cent on last year and the highest aggregate achieved since the pre-recession sale of 2007. The average of 87,497gns was a rise of nearly 52 per cent and the median gained 47.4 per cent to 28,000gns. As ever, a hugely international buying bench assisted in the production of those record figures alongside strong domestic support, and buyers from Australia, America and Chile were among those who made significant purchases. The foal sale was capped by a Dubawi filly out of the Group winner High Heeled who was purchased by John Ferguson for 450,000gns. Fillies accounted for the top three prices during the four-day foal sale, with the highest-priced colt being the son of Galileo out of Irish 1,000 Guineas winner Saoire, purchased for 325,000gns by Blandford Bloodstock.

Fasig-Tipton had a hard act to follow this year after last year’s sale-topping price of $10 million for 2011 Horse of the Year Havre De Grace at the company’s Kentucky November breeding-stock sale. That price may not have been matched, but the company still saw 24 horses sell for seven-figure sums. They were headed by the superbly bred Galileo mare Betterbetterbetter, who was offered in foal to red-hot Kentucky sire War Front. The four-year-old was purchased for $5.2m by Mandy Pope’s Whisper Hill Farm, which was also responsible for the purchase of Havre De Grace.

A packed arena watches as Irish Oaks winner Chicquita, part of the Paul Makin (right) dispersal, sells to Peter and Ross Doyle for a record €6,000,000

Chicquita stars as dispersal lights up Goffs GOFFS NOVEMBER

Dispersals can be the making of a breedingstock sale and, in a heady hour of trading, Goffs enjoyed one of the best auctions it has ever seen when selling the top-quality draft of Paul Makin’s Paulyn bloodstock. The 29-year record price for a horse sold in Ireland was shattered by this year’s Irish Oaks heroine Chicquita when the hammer finally fell at €6,000,000. The winning bid was made by Peter and Ross Doyle, and although the pair would not reveal who the purchase was made for – it is believed for Coolmore – they did confirm the daughter of Montjeu, who has raced only four times, will remain in training next season.

Two other mares from the Paulyn dispersal brought seven-figure sums, with Emmanuel de Seroux of Narvick International purchasing the Group 1 July Cup winner Fleeting Spirit, in foal to Galileo, for €1,100,000. Song, a sister to the outstanding Yesterday and the first mare in foal to Frankel to be offered at auction in Europe, was purchased for €1,000,000 by Friarstown Stud. Among the other big-hitters was Sparkle Plenty, a three-parts sister to Pour Moi bought for €650,000, Authorized’s dam Funsie, bought for €550,000, and the Group 1 winner Gilt Edge Girl, also purchased for €550,000.

Dundalk maiden, although she was placed at Group 3 level, but she boasts a regal pedigree, being a three-parts sister to such top performers and producers as Yesterday, All My Loving and Quarter Moon.

In all, the Paulyn dispersal grossed €12,734,000 with 24 lots selling for an average of €530,583. However, it was not just the Makin horses who contributed to a truly outstanding sale; even without the Paulyn figures, turnover for the breeding-stock section rose by a staggering 60 per cent, and attractive lots such as the Group winner Hazel Lavery, offered in foal to Frankel and bought for €850,000, helped make it an auction to remember. The foal section of the sale was topped by a half-brother to Irish 1,000 Guineas winner Just The Judge. By first-crop sire Rip Van Winkle, the colt was purchased by David Redvers for €420,000.

Love And Pride, a close relation to leading sire Bernardini, was snapped up for $4.9m by Goncalo Torrealba’s Borges Torrealba Holdings. Bred by Torrealba out of a daughter of Bernardini’s dam Cara

Rafaela, Love And Pride has since won two Grade 1s for Green Hills Farm Inc and was offered in foal to Distorted Humor. The one-day auction took place two days after the Breeders’ Cup meeting and it was  racingpost.com/bloodstock

no surprise to see Mizdirection much in demand after landing her second consecutive victory in the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint. The five-year-old Mizzen Mast mare was purchased for Sheikh Joaan Al Thani for $2.7m, a price matched by Shadai Farm to buy dual Grade 1 winner Champagne D’Oro, who was offered in foal to Tapit. Shadai Farm also purchased the first mare offered in foal to Frankel, paying $2.4m for the Grade 1-winning Empire Maker mare In Lingerie. Even without an eight-figure top lot, the sale saw aggregate rise by 23 per cent to $73,859,000. The median also recorded an

upturn, rising 31.6 per cent to $250,000, but the average declined, dropping 17.3 per cent to $572,550. KEENELAND NOVEMBER BREEDING STOCK

Horses with form at this year’s Breeders’ Cup were also in demand at the marathon Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale.

Stores in vogue as buyers eye source Horses with proven form also remain in demand to ensure another buoyant year by Tom Pennington

T

HE burning desire of several well-heeled owners to have winners at the jumps festivals, chiefly Cheltenham’s jamboree in March, was the driving force behind another buoyant year in the National Hunt sales market. As with previous years, horses with proven form were in high demand, but there was also a significant resurgence in the store market, with a number of point-to-point trainers looking to replenish their strings for next year as well as owners and trainers looking to buy more cheaply at source. Brightwells

Brightwells at Cheltenham posted recordbreaking turnover in 2012 – up 26.4 per cent to £11,357,300 – and the January curtain-raiser got the company off to a flyer this year. The auction was topped by subsequent Punchestown festival bumper winner Moyle Park, who was knocked down to Willie Mullins and his regular buying accomplice Harold Kirk for £250,000. That price contributed to turnover of £1,542,000, up a stunning 200-plus per cent on 2012. At the sale’s conclusion, Brightwells’ head of bloodstock Matt Mitchell noted: “The success of past graduates on the track continues to attract a wide range of buyers to these sales.” The sale of impressive Fairyhouse bumper winner On Blueberry Hill to Aiden Murphy for £250,000 was not enough to

prevent figures at Brightwells’ premier April falling just short of those posted in 2012. Turnover dropped nearly three per cent to £3,702,500, the average was down nearly eight per cent at £64,956, but the median grew 19.5 per cent to £52,000. However, the May Sale saw an improved set of figures compared with 2012, with the average price increasing 13 per cent to £40,698. A pair of £140,000 Irish pointers stole the show, with Brightwells stalwart Roger Brookhouse securing the five-year-old Presenting gelding Stellar Notion and Gearoid Costelloe landing Red Devil Lads, a four-year-old son of Beneficial who was rated the highest point-to-pointer in Ireland after winning at Templemore by 15 lengths. A busy Brookhouse spent £395,000 on three lots in November, but it was not enough to stop turnover falling nearly 18 per cent to £2,462,500. The average and median were also down on 2012. Goffs

It was always going to be difficult for this year’s Goffs Punchestown Invitational Sale to match last year’s impressive set of results, which included a 100 per cent clearance rate. However, the €190,000 paid for exciting Cork bumper winner The Game Changer, a son of Arcadio, by Mags O’Toole assisted in pushing the average up a shade over three per cent to £91,167.

Goffs’ flagship jumps auction, the Land Rover Sale, ended with sweeping gains and a record price of €215,000 paid by the Mullins/ Kirk axis for a Robin Des Champs gelding related to high-class chaser The Minack out of a daughter of Irish Grand National winner Ebony Jane. The aggregate of €7,742,400 was a 40 per cent improvement on 2012. Goffs chief executive Henry Beeby put the phenomenal trade down to a catalogue that “was as good as ever”. DBS

The DBS Sale at Newbury in March was headed by smart Irish point-to-point winner Padge. The Flemensfirth four-year-old, who beat subsequent Grade 3 hurdle-placed Very Wood in a competitive heat at Punchestown, was bought privately by Evan Williams on behalf of leading owners William and Angela Rucker for £160,000. Although the average dropped there were increases in median and turnover, with the latter up nearly 43 per cent at £1,073,000.

Top honours at the company’s Spring Sales also went to an Irish point-to-point winner, Enjoy Responsibly, who was snapped up by Mags O’Toole and Henry de Bromhead for £105,000.

A Robin Des Champs gelding from the immediate family of Grade 2-winning chaser Invictus topped the February Sale when selling to Highflyer Bloodstock for €60,000. A sale that failed to reach the highs of 2012 was a false signal of what was to come at Fairyhouse. The company’s premier production, the Derby Sale, was a roaring success, with 306 lots (86 per cent) finding new homes for a total of €11,524,500, the highest figure since 2007 and up 22.8 per cent on 2012. Another positive seen across the store sales this year, and in particular at the Derby Sale, was the remarkable turnaround in the fortunes of jumps-bred fillies, who had lost much of their value during the economic crash.

During the two-day sale a staggering 90 per cent of the fillies on offer sold, compared with 69 per cent the previous year. MV Magnier bought the sale-topper, parting with €250,000 for a son of Robin Des Champs out of four-time Grade 1 winner Asian Maze. Aiden Murphy snared the week’s top lot at the August Sale, going to €80,000 for a Scorpion gelding form the family of triple Champion Hurdle hero Istabraq. The 2013 figures improved on the gains recorded in 2012, with the aggregate up 46.2 per cent at €2,731,950. The average and median also improved on 2012. A Yeats three-parts brother to dual Champion Hurdle winner Hurricane Fly stole the show at the company’s November Sale after selling for €120,000 to trainer Ben Case. The top price contributed to turnover of €10,826,650, up 34.5 per cent on 2012. There were also increases in average and median. t

Arabians take to the world’s stage SET IN THE HEART OF THOROUGHBRED COUNTRY IN NORMANDY, WATHBA STUD FARM PROUDLY FLIES THE FLAG FOR ARAB RACING

ESTLED among several leading thoroughbred establishments in the heart of Normandy, Wathba Stud Farm, which is home to 30 Arab broodmares and five stallions, has been owned by Sheikh Mansoor Bin Zayed Al Nahyan since 2009, writes Isabel Mathew. Martial Boisseuil has been involved in looking after the ruling family of Abu Dhabi’s interests for more than 20 years. “It all started with Sheikh Mansoor’s father Sheikh Zayed,” he says. “I bought horses for him and it has just continued from there. Back then the sheikh was the leading purchaser of Arabs at auction, but it has all changed now as all the horses in training have been bred by Sheikh Mansoor and are by his stallions.” One of these is Mushrae, winner of three of his four starts this year, including the £700,000 Qatar Arabian World Cup on Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe day. Trained by Jean-Pierre Totain at Pau, Mushrae is a son of Wathba’s superstar stallion Munjiz and has contributed to one of his owner’s six Group 1 wins this year – and to a tenth successive breeders’ title. Also a Group 1 winner for Sheikh Mansoor, Munjiz is out of champion mare Unchained Melody, who won 37 of her 38 races.

N

Comprising more than 180 hectares of prime land near Argentan, Wathba was previously a thoroughbred farm known as Haras de Clairefeuille. It also acts as a pre-training facility for the youngstock before they go into training in France. Sheikh Mansoor, who is chairman of the Emirates Racing Authority, is active in the day-to-day running of the operation. Boisseuil says: “The sheikh keeps a close eye on everything that goes on here and he makes all the decisions. “Arabs are broken in July of their two-year-old year and go into training in January as three-year-olds. An Arab would run about ten seconds slower than a thoroughbred over a mile, but apart from that there isn’t much difference. “They start racing at three and their four-year-old year is the most important. At three an Arab is like a juvenile thoroughbred in physique.” Wathba Stud Farm also carries the name of a series of 25 races that take place across nine countries – Sweden, Switzerland, Holland, the United States, Belgium, France, Poland and the United Kingdom, as well as Abu Dhabi – in order to support smaller breeders across the world. The success of Wathba looks set to continue for years to come, especially with a future potential champion sire in the making when Mushrae retires.  Sheikh Mansoor Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, chairman of the Emirates Racing Authority and owner of Wathba Stud (right), is the driving force behind the Global Arabian Horse Flat Racing Festival racingpost.com/bloodstock

Series of top-class events AS WELL as the Wathba Stud Farm series, Sheikh Mansoor sponsors two other prestigious race programmes, including the Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan Cup series, which is run at 11 racecourses over a variety of trips and showcases Arab racing at the highest level. From Switzerland to Texas, California to France, the series offers racegoers around the world the chance to watch top-class Group races, Arab-style. Such is the growing profile of the sport, in 2012 it shared the stage with Frankel when he landed the Lockinge Stakes at Newbury. The third series, the HH Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies World Championship, is named in honour of Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak, Sheikh Mansoor’s mother and chairwoman of the General Women’s Union.

The 12-race series is open to women jockeys only. “The Sheikha Fatima series are flagship races for international lady riders – they come from all over the world to represent their country,” says Amanda Smith of the Arabian Racing Organisation. All three race series culminate in glittering finales held after the EARS conference for education and training in Abu Dhabi. Sheikh Mansoor also sponsors the Darley awards, which for the past 26 years have honoured the best in Arabian racing. In 2014 the glamorous event will be held for the first time in Hollywood. To coincide with the Newbury stages of the Sheikh Mansoor-sponsored race series, the World Arabian Horseracing Conference will be held for the first time in London at the St James Theatre in May 2014.

Oasis reaps dividends VICTORY in valuable Tattersalls Millions sales races for his progeny Oklahoma City and Wedding Ring helped Oasis Dream to the top of the table for leading sires of two-year-olds in Europe by prize-money. Five juvenile stakes winners, including Frankel’s half-sister Joyeuse (below), proved Oasis Dream’s position is no fluke. That tally was matched by Galileo and, perhaps less predictably, Camacho. Iffraaj, without a Group-winning two-year-old in Europe since Espirita and Wootton Bassett emerged from his record-breaking first crop in 2010, enjoyed a renaissance with Rizeena winning the Moyglare Stud Stakes and finishing second to paternal half-sister Chriselliam in the Fillies’ Mile. Paternal half-brother Hot Streak narrowly failed to add to the tally behind Astaire in the Middle Park Stakes. MS

GALILEO steamrollered his way to a fifth European sires’ championship by prize-money in 2013 by a margin of more than £3 million, writes Martin Stevens. His tally of 29 individual stakes winners, including five who scored at the highest level in Europe – Altano, Intello, Magician, Romantica and Ruler Of The World – is 11 more than his closest pursuer Dansili. This year illustrated the worth of Derby winners at stud as Motivator, who landed the Epsom Classic four years after Galileo, finished second. Prix de Diane, Prix Vermeille and Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe heroine Treve was responsible for more than half of his progeny earnings. Oasis Dream fielded the most winners and the best winners-to-runners ratio of the leaders, while progeny of the late, lamented German colossus Monsun produced an exceptional average earnings index of £35,215.

Danehill dominance AFTER the retirement of Frankel, more maternal grandchildren of Danehill emerged into the limelight in 2013 to give the late Coolmore stallion a third consecutive leading broodmare sire title by progeny earnings. Prix du Jockey Club hero Intello and Prix Jean Romanet winner Romantica became the seventh and eighth top-level scorers bred on the magical Galileo-Danehill cross that produced Frankel, while My Titania is by Galileo’s half-brother Sea The Stars out of a Danehill mare. Danehill proved his versatility with his daughters also nicking with Iffraaj to produce top juvenile filly Chriselliam and King’s Best to produce high-class stayer Royal Diamond. Mares by ever-dependable damsire Sadler’s Wells produced 2013 European Group 1 winners Flintshire, Neatico and The Fugue, while another mainstay of this table, Darshaan, sired the dams of Al Kazeem, Estimate and Indonesienne.

Craftsman the master DANDY MAN set the early pace in the first-season sires’ race but at the end of the season there was a clear winner in terms of individual winners and prize-money: Mastercraftsman, who was also the only one to sire more than one stakes winner – four altogether, headed by unbeaten Racing Post Trophy hero Kingston Hill, writes Martin Stevens. Intense Focus was the only other freshman sire to supply a Group 1 winner, with his son Astaire (below) adding the Middle Park Stakes to an earlier score in the Gimcrack Stakes. Mastercraftsman’s old racecourse rival Sea The Stars was towards the back of the field early in the season but ran on well when the 7f and one-mile juvenile races kicked in. He finished with a double-digit tally of winners, including several intriguing maiden scorers and exciting CL Weld Park Stakes winner My Titania.

Motivator on mark AS EVER, the fabulous riches lavished on the winner of the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe decided the French champion sire by progeny earnings. So the honour in 2013 fell to Treve’s sire Motivator. The Derby-winning son of Montjeu seems to have really clicked with French racing and in the past year was also represented by Prix Penelope winner Ferevia and Prix du Jockey Club third Sky Hunter. Motivator switched from the Royal Studs to the Haras du Quesnay at the beginning of the year. He covered 136 mares in his first year in Normandy – a large book by French standards – and had his fee more than doubled to €15,000 from €7,000 for 2014. Monsun was another star of the French racing season, providing nine stakes winners including three at the highest level – Prix Saint-Alary heroine Silasol, Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud winner Novellist and Prix d’Ispahan and Prix du Moulin winner Maxios.

NEW APPROACH sired three Royal Ascot winners and champion juvenile Dawn Approach in his first crop in 2012. The son of Galileo consolidated that fantastic start in 2013 with Dawn Approach going on to win the 2,000 Guineas and St James’s Palace Stakes and daughter Talent (below) landing another Classic in the Oaks, writes Martin Stevens. There are plenty of exciting prospects in New Approach’s second crop too, including Prix de Conde winner Elliptique and easy conditions stakes scorer Sudden Wonder. Duke Of Marmalade supplied the most winners and stakes winners of any sophomore, while Henrythenavigator achieved the feat of siring Phoenix Stakes winners in his first two crops when Sudirman emulated his paternal half-brother Pedro The Great in the race in August.

Beneficial lament TRIUMPH and tragedy for Knockhouse Stud stalwart Beneficial. The son of Top Ville died aged 23 just weeks after siring three Cheltenham Festival winners – Benefficient, Salsify and Salubrious – and not long before he was crowned leading jumps sire by progeny earnings for the first time. King’s Theatre – who also died (2011) in the season he won a first jumps sires’ championship – enjoyed another fruitful Cheltenham Festival as sire of Grade 1 winners Cue Card and The New One and as damsire of Gold Cup hero Bobs Worth. Oscar provided a flurry of big-race winners, including exciting novice hurdler At Fishers Cross ((left) and RSA Chase winner Lord Windermere. He is joined on the Coolmore National Hunt stallion roster in 2014 by close relation Imperial Monarch. MS

OWNERS Ken and Sarah Ramsey’s staunch support of their sire Kitten’s Joy looked in late November to have secured him the North American sires’ championship by progeny earnings, writes Martin Stevens. All of Kitten’s Joy’s six Grade 1 winners in 2013 were bred by the Ramseys. Three of those, Admiral Kitten, Big Blue Kitten and Real Solution, landed the Secretariat Stakes, Sword Dancer Invitational Stakes and Arlington Million within two hours of each other on one day in August. Malibu Moon, sire of this year’s Kentucky Derby hero Orb, was just behind Kitten’s Joy, with Unbridled’s Song, who died aged 20 in July, in third thanks chiefly to his Grade 1 winners Cross Traffic, Graydar and Will Take Charge. Fourth-placed Harlan’s Holiday was another sad loss to the US stallion ranks in 2013, having been euthanised during his stint shuttling to Argentina in November.

Monsun clan’s success leads to a jump in numbers THE growing influence of Monsun in the jumps sphere had a significant bearing on covering statistics in 2013, as he supplied two of the three busiest stallions, writes Tom Pennington. Arctic Tack Stud resident Arcadio was the busiest, covering 292 mares, while Getaway, who stands under the Coolmore National Hunt banner, was sent 254 mares, putting him third in the table. Second in the list was Whytemount Stud’s Stowaway, sire of dual Cheltenham Festival winner Champagne Fever, who covered 275 mares. Four-time Ascot Gold Cup hero Yeats

Jeremy’s book swelled from 84 to 239 mares this year. The switch to Garryrichard Stud from the Irish National Stud and the emergence of exciting Triumph Hurdle scorer Our Conor (right) could have been the catalyst for a rise in popularity.
