the first word

The King George went wrong in a big way And right from the very start of the Group 1 race, reports Paul Haigh

6

www.internationalthoroughbred.net

Wth a compound fracture of his cannon bone, the poor horse collapsed in an instant and a heap, firing Frankie Dettori into the ground, although mercifully not on his head supposed not to say even in the very worst novels, “all hell broke loose”. The death of a racehorse doesn’t compare with the sort of thing that went on that morning in Norway, the land of Buick’s upbringing, or at an ice rink in the US where the birthday boy at a party in his honour decided to celebrate by shooting some of his guests. Nor does it compare with the commonplace tortures and massacres that go on everyday in various war zones. Even Mother Nature’s gruesome jaw must be more or less permanently dropped at the sight of the horrors her fiercest beast has devised for its own species. But when you see beauty reduced to hideousness in a single stride the emotional impact on witnesses, at least until there’s time to reflect on it, must be very much the same as for the human-on-human cruelties. The accident happened too early in the straight for anyone to be able to say for sure whether Rewilding would have been involved in the finish, but memories of the way he ground down So You Think in the Prince of Wales, as well as the finishing position of So You Think’s Eclipse victim Workforce in second place, suggest he very probably would have made Nathaniel work. Instead, with a compound fracture of his cannon bone, the poor horse collapsed in an instant and a heap, firing Frankie Dettori into the ground, although mercifully not on his head. And then there were four. Or just three if you accept that Debussy was beaten as soon as he was headed. In some cases this is enough to make a great horse race, but in this case it wasn’t really. Somewhere in or before the chaos Workforce was struck into, and the resultant cut may have had something to do with the fact that all the way to the line he hung towards the now

F

ew sporting events are quite as tasty in reality as they are in anticipation, and you’d have to say the 2011 King George was one of the slight disappointments. This wasn’t the fault of Nathaniel, who took advantage of a weight differential that had always seemed to favour his age group in the not-very-distant past to run out a deserved winner. Nor was it the fault of the sponsors, Betfair, under whose aegis the King George seems to be on its way back after a mid-decade wobble, during which the extended Grand Prix de Paris posed what looked like a serious threat to the status that won it the unofficial title “Midsummer Championship of Europe”. You couldn’t complain either about the quality. As Betfair’s subsidiary, Timeform, pointed out, even if there was no Ribot, Nijinsky, Brigadier Gerard, Mill Reef or Dancing Brave in the field, this was the best King George renewal since the 2003 edition which featured, apart from the winner Alamshar, Sulamani, Nayef and Grandera, as well as the wonderful Falbrav, who at 12f couldn’t even get in the frame. You can’t complain about any event in which the Derby-winning Arc winner meets the Dubai Sheema Classic winner and a Coronation Cup winner who looked as though he might finally be ready to fulfil the promise that invited some of us to hail him at the end of his two-year-old season as the next equine god. But things go wrong in small fields, and they went wrong in a big way this time. For a start Ahmed Ajtebi rode a strange race on Debussy. If that horse was supposed to be there to make enough pace to bring Rewilding’s stamina into play there seems little explanation for his early decision to go wide and encourage Nathaniel to take up the running on his inside. By the time Debussy got on with the show the tempo of the race had already been set. Nathaniel was comfortable tracking the pace, and the three supposed principals, all confirmed stayers, were always going to have to find a sprint finish if they were going to get past him once he took it up when, as all observers assumed he would, the front-runner faded. Everything went according to that script as William Buick went for home at the top of the straight. But from there on, as writers are

almost-hushed stands, thereby throwing away whatever chance he had. Whether St Nicholas Abbey was inconvenienced by Rewilding’s fall is debatable, but he never had the pace anyway to get near the lead. The only horse to whom no criticism could be attached was Nathaniel and this hugely improving son of his King George-winning sire, Galileo, just kept on marching for a two and three quarter length triumph. How good he is we still don’t know. It’s quite possible we’ll look back soon and say this was the day a great horse revealed himself. It’s quite possible too that we’ll look back and say “Remember that awful, messy King George?”. Because Rewilding didn’t lie down and wait to die. Somehow his instincts got him to his three good feet and persuaded him that the sensible thing to do was to try and gallop towards the line. There can’t have been a much more affecting sight in a major race since Go For Wand suffered an almost identical accident near the end of a straight-long battle with Bayakoa in the 1990 Breeders’ Cup Distaff, after which cigar-chomping inspirations for the bit part players in The Sopranos were wandering around Belmont in tears. The Godolphin horse finally came to a halt near the line, and stood there perplexed but not in obvious agony. The man who comforted him until the green screens arrived was John Gosden, trainer of Nathaniel. Anthropomorphists who would dispute Gosden’s insistence that horses do not suffer as humans would in such circumstances, because adrenaline kicks in and protects them from pain, might like to consider that no human could even have contemplated getting up and trying to run with that sort of injury.

Genetics to identify elite racehorses Equinome announces new genetic test designed to discover those racehorses with Group-class potential

A

new genetic test has been developed to identify those racehorses with the potential to perform at an elite level. Equinome’s test, which is closely allied to the Speed Gene Test launched last year by the company as a way to determine optimum racing distance for horses according to their

genetic variation, is based on the understanding that horses have different physical attributes according to their distance preference. It revolves around examination of a “panel” of genes for each distance type and those horses with the best genetic make -up for each distance is deemed to have the potential to become an elite-performing athlete i.e. to be a Group race winner.

The premise

It is well established that sprint horses as compared to animals who require longer distances have different metabolic and physiological requirements. For instance, each type of exercise has differing requirement for oxygendependent respiration and metabolism. Therefore, different sets of genes will contribute to elite performance in C:C (sprint), C:T (middle-distance) and T:T (long distance) horses.

The research

Multiple influences are associated with performance ability, indicating that many

genes contribute to performance. Different genomic regions are highlighted in the different groups of horses when defined by the Speed Gene Test as C:C, C:T and T:T and different sets of genes contribute to elite racing performance in the different race distance types. The test was developed by evaluating the occurrence of these DNA variants in 1,051 horses that had been trained for Flat racing in Ireland, UK, France, Australia, New Zealand and US. All horses were older than three. The test sample included 211 Group and Listed race winners (i.e. this represents an approximately 10 ×

Distribution of racing performance within each genetic Class in a sample of 1,051 Flat racehorses

the news over-representation of elite performers in the population; the sample size was required to increase the statistical power).

Panels define class

Equinome found that large panels of DNA variants can now be used to distinguish between elite performers and poor performers within each distance category. There are three test panels for C:C, C:T and T:T horses. Approximately, 80 genetic variants are tested for in each panel. Each favourable DNA variant contributes to elite racing performance in a positive fashion. Each variant is assigned a weighting based on its contribution to racing ability. A genetic score for elite performance is then calculated from the combination of genetic variants at all genes tested in the panel. The combination of advantageous DNA variants

determines whether a horse is genetically Class I, Class II, Class III or Class IV.

C:C test panel includes genes with functions associated with: gluconeogenesis, central nervous system development, insulin regulation, lactate metabolism, vascularisation C:T test panel includes genes with functions associated with: muscle contraction, oxidative phosphorylation, heart function, growth promotion

T:T test panel includes genes with functions associated with: oxygen sensing, central nervous system development, mitochondrial respiration, glucose utilisation, testosterone conversion, heart physiology and health. The test is not for use on breeding stock as the genetic variation is too immense, but rather for existing horses. The classes refer to the genetic makeup, not racing performance. As such, individual horses may have the optimum combination

of genetic variants for potential (i.e. Class I), but as environment, management and opportunity also plays a critical role in racing performance not all horses genetically-classified as Class I will be elite performers. So, as can be seen in the graphics, while a horse might possess Class I capabilities, and from the test group used by Equinome, 46 per cent were indeed elite runners, 13 per cent were non-winners. Similarly, a small number of Class IV horses – which have the least optimum arrangement of genetic variants – may still win at an elite level due to a combination of non-genetic factors. The test therefore provides the owner with specific knowledge about the inherited ability of an individual horse that can only be inferred from the pedigree, which must then be considered along with the existing selection tools in order to best evaluate that horse’s potential ability.

At the launch of the new test, Dr Emmeline Hill of Equinome, a co-founder and a director of the company with racehorse trainer Jim Bolger, said: “Using the Equinome Elite Performance Test in combination with the Equinome Speed Gene Test, we can now definitively identify the optimum racing distance for an individual racehorse and evaluate their potential for elite performance at that trip. “It is well-established that there are different metabolic and physiological requirements for short-duration, high-intensity sprint type exercise and longerduration, more moderate intensity exercise. “We have determined that, similarly, the genetic requirements differ for contrasting types of exercise and therefore different sets of genes will contribute to elite performance in each type of thoroughbred. “A one-test fits all approach doesn’t seem to be appropriate.”

the news

Breeders’ Cup ups its drug policy As part of its efforts to bring the Breeders’ Cup World Championships in line with other major global racing events, over the next two years the Breeders’ Cup will put into place measures to forbid the use of race

day medication. The decision came after strong support for the move by the Breeders’ Cup members during their annual meeting on July 13. As an initial step, the administration of race day medication in two year-old races at next year’s meeting will be prohibited. The next step will be the implementation of the same policy for all races in 2013 and thereafter. “Given the high level of international participation in our championships and the increasing support for our nomination programmes throughout the

global thoroughbred breeding and racing community, Breeders’ Cup feels strongly that the time has come to modify our medication policies to be consistent with international practices,” said Tom Ludt, chairman of the Breeders’ Cup. Breeders’ Cup’s new method for international nominations raised more than $3.5 million for the organisation in the first half of the year. The new open enrollment programme – a one-time offer that allowed horses not eligible to the Breeders’ Cup to opt in for a set fee – produced 107 nominations and $1,038,000 in fees. The new international stallion nomination programme has produced $2.5 million in revenue from 390 nominations.

Bloodstock agent William Huntingdon takes a look at the varied world of racing and bloodstock

Nathaniel a worthy winner of the King George

T

he sad demise of Rewilding only a month after his courageous defeat of So You Think in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes at the Royal meeting was slightly overshadowed by the premature loss of an original music talent in Amy Winehouse, a troubled genius, and completely dwarfed by the tragic news from Norway. Nathaniel was a worthy winner of the King George, but William Buick, his young jockey, was brought up in Norway before he came to Kingsclere and was devastated by the Oslo news. The Qipco Championship has been well promoted and is beginning to gather momentum. I was originally sceptical about the chances of getting a sponsor, but that has been sorted, though I still have reservations about the timing of the final day at Ascot with the weather and ground issues. The last on the card, a valuable apprentice race, is an excellent way of showcasing the young riders and it will be a good finale to a mouthwatering day’s racing. Ascot is gradually becoming more user-friendly for those without access to corporate boxes (those racegoers have to take plenty of exercise if they

10

want to be entertained and see the horses). The Betfair lounge has expanded and it is a good place to see racing at other meetings, and catch up on other important sporting events that are going on. It is amazing how difficult it is to find televisions to see other races at many courses. It is also annoying that many racecards, Ascot included, do not carry the runners for the other meetings. In Australia, racebooks carry runners and form for all the other city meetings at half the price of our cards. I have also long complained how difficult it is to get reasonably priced, healthy food. There is now the Paddock Bar And Grill Restaurant on the Grundy/Bustino lawn. It has a very good barbecue and salad menu with some reasonably priced wine, a great innovation. Since the beginning of the year I have been involved with the management of Salisbury, which I have much enjoyed as it exemplifies what a well-run, medium-sized British racecourse ought to offer. It is a friendly racecourse, provides excellent going, prize-money that meets and often exceeds the Horsemen’s Group Tariff, and is in a marvellous

www.internationalthoroughbred.net

rural setting. The catering outlets are reasonably priced, even though the healthy element might be hard to find. There is an excellent coffee shop, run by a Salisbury barista, close to the winning enclosure. The small management team, headed by Jeremy Martin and Lin White, is enthusiastic and efficient and is ably supported by a great groundstaff who have won the Neill Wyatt Award for two of the past three years. The racecards also carry the races from the other meetings. It contrasts strongly with Newbury, which has had a long and close connection with Kingsclere. John Porter developed Park House late in the 19th century and built the house, main yards and the stud buildings which have lasted well into this century with little or no modification. He was an extremely successful trainer, Flying Fox and Ormonde being among his best horses. In 1903 John Porter was determined to build a racecourse at Newbury. He met opposition from the Jockey Club, but, numbered among his patrons was King Edward VII and his support and interest convinced the Jockey Club to license the course.

Amazingly ,the building of the stand was completed in nine months and opened to 15,000 customers on September 26, 1905. Porter died in harness while supervising the preparations for the steeplechase meeting in 1922. I am not sure how enthusiastically he would be greeting the plans for hotels and apartment blocks that will make it look more like Wolverhampton than Salisbury. Certainly the course, thanks to a long tradition of Osgood care, is excellently maintained, but somehow big business and the interests of shareholders, admittedly dividendless for some years, holds sway. Devonport in Tasmania is the latest course down under to develop an all-weather track and the first to use Tapeta, under the guidance of Michael and Joan Dickinson. The climate there should suit the material as it does not get too hot, while Sydney may be ruing the day they chose not to install a synthetic surface as last week they lost a week’s racing owing to the wet weather. Despite its drawbacks, the synthetic track at Geelong in Victoria has at least kept Melbourne racing going during their very wet spells.

Former jockey Richard Fox dies

George Mernagh (inset) wins Curridge Chase at Newbury on Knock Hill in 1984

George Mernagh of Tattersalls dies George mernagH, managing director of Tattersalls Ireland, has died from cancer. He was aged 56. Mernagh, who was educated at the Rockwell Agricultural College, rode to three-star level in eventing before embarking on a successful career as a jumps’ jockey, based initially in Ireland before moving to England for five years through the 1980s to be based with Oxfordshire trainer John Webber. The best horses he rode included Auntie Dot, on whom he won the Tattersalls Mares’ Only Novices’ Final, Knock Hill on whom Mernagh won the Midlands National, as well Townley Stone, who was ridden by Mernagh to the Peterborough Chase success. Mernagh retired from the saddle in July 1989, taking up a role as a bloodstock manager at Tattersalls Ireland. He was appointed to the Tattersalls Ireland board in 1999 and succeeded Liam Dunne as managing director of the auction house in July 2007. He served 22 years with the sales company. Mernagh was also a member of the National Hunt Committee and an acting steward with the Turf Club. He will be remembered for his integrity, professionalism, kindness and industry prescence and counsel.

HK Mile prize-money is increased again

The Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Mile will regain its place as the world’s richest mile on turf after a prize-money boost to HK$20 million. “The HK$20 million will make the Hong Kong Mile the richest race again, and hopefully, act as an incentive for owners to buy the kind of high-quality horses that will keep our mile racing at a very high level,” said HKJC executive director of racing Bill Nader. HK racing is on a high with betting turnover at a ten-year peak after a recovery from the tax restructuring in 2006. In 2006-07, just three days achieved betting turnover around the billion-dollar mark and no night meetings realised more than HK$800 million. In 2010-11, there were 33 billion-dollar meetings. The total betting turnover was over HK$80 billion for the first time since 2001 and capped a rise of 25 per cent in five seasons. Betting in HK on foreign racing also rose by a 29.2 per cent per-race.

FORMER jockey Richard Fox died at the West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds on June 28, aged 57. Fox collapsed while shopping in Newmarket on April 30 and failed to regain consciousness. He had previously suffered an aneurysm that came close to claiming his life while riding out in Newmarket in 1999. Fox started out as an apprentice with Frenchie Nicholson and rode his first winner in 1972 and enjoyed a successful career as a lightweight and won many of the top handicaps, including the Lincoln, Cesarewitch and Northumberland Plate. “He was the original character,” said TV broadcaster Derek Thompson to the BBC. “He would pull anybody’s leg, if anybody got beat by half a length in the Derby or something and would be feeling terrible he’d go cheer them up – in a wicked sort of way!” Fox is survived by his wife Marie and two children, Francesca, who lives in America, and Dominic, a former jockey who now works for trainer Alan Bailey in Newmarket.

Restructuring of Italian racing

UNIRE, the independent governing body of Italian racing, is to operate under a new name, management personnel and with new mechanisms to run horseracing. Agriculture minister Saverio Romano announced the name change in June, explaining that UNIRE is to become known as Agenzia per lo Sviluppo del Settore Ippico (ASSI), the Agency for the Development of the Horseracing Industry. Romano said: “UNIRE changes its name but above all its own philosophy and developmental action in order to achieve the growth objectives of the horseracing industry, cost reduction to the administration of the sector, increased efficiency and quality of its services. “ASSI will also ensure the transparency and objectivity in the horseracing industry through one or more new regulations, which will be released before the end of 2011.” There have been problems within the sport for the past three years due to dwindling finances caused by alternative forms of betting and entertainment, as well as a failure by horseracing to agree on a funding plan. The problems have been compounded as the industry has been hit by strike action; racing industry staff demonstrating their frustration at the uncertain future. ASSI will look to address these issues in an attempt to put Italian racing on a level footing with the other leading European nations.

The Guineas Breeze-Up will return for 2012 Tattersalls is to reinstate the Guineas Breeze-Up Sale in 2012, the sale having been abandoned this year in favour of staging a breeze-up sale in Ireland with

its sister company, Tattersalls Ireland. There are also plans to include a session for older horses in training. The sale, to be named the Tattersalls Guineas Breeze Up and Horses in Training Sale, will take place on May 4, 2012 with the pre-sale breeze taking place on May 3 on the Rowley Mile. Tattersalls chairman Edmond Mahony said: “This year we reorganised our breeze-up schedule by staging the Craven

Breeze-Up as usual, followed by a new sale at Tattersalls Ireland in Guineas week. “While the Craven Breeze-Up produced increased turnover on the 2010 sale, the Tattersalls Ireland Breeze-Up did not manage to replicate the appeal of the sale it was replacing and feedback from our vendors indicates that they would like to see the Guineas week fixture at headquarters rather than at Tattersalls Ireland.

“At the same time we felt that there was a demand for a new sale for horses in training to fill the existing gap between our February Sale and the July Sale. “The recent Tattersalls July Sale showed yet again the enduring international appeal of horses in training sales at Park Paddocks and, by combining the Guineas Breeze Up with a horses in training session, we will have a sale which will appeal to an even wider cross section of buyers.”

STALLIONS IN ACTION Hawk Wing gained his first top level winner when Cambina deadheated in the American Oaks (G1) with Nereid, a daughter of Rock Hard Ten, also getting a debut Grade 1 winner. Unfortunately, European breeders won’t be able to benefit from the success as Hawk Wing, a former Coolmore stallion, now stands in Korea, his last covering season in Ireland being in 2008. Lane’s End Farm stallion Rock Hard Ten has seen his price crash from a starter fee of $50,000 in 2006 to $25,000 in 2010 and 2011. To date, the son of Kris S. has had just one Grade 2 winner, Double Partner, and three Grade / Group 3 winners, one of which is Long Lashes, winner of the Solera Stakes in 2010 for Godolphin. She has not been seen since finishing third in the Balachine Stakes (G3) at Meydan in February. Deacon Blues, winner of the Workingham Handicap at Royal Ascot and the Group 3 Shadwell (Hackwood) Stakes, is a son of Compton Place and is an eighth horse by the Whitsbury Stud stallion to achieve prize-money earnings of over £100,000. The top lot on the last day of the Tattersalls July Sale was also by Compton Place. Casual Glimpse was bought by Mohammed Alattiyah for 83,000gns and will go into training in Qatar. It just seems like yesterday that Paco Boy was racing, but a first mare has already been sold in foal to the Highclere Stud stallion. The Thunder Gulch mare Eclaircie was offered at the July sale with a Dubawi foal at foot, a May 6 service date and was bought by Rabbah for 85,000gns. Snowflake Dancer, the first stakes performer for first-season sire Dylan Thomas, was sold at Tattersalls to Willie Musson for 70,000gns. He will be campaigned in Britain this summer by Musson before shipping aboard.

Hendra “fruit bat”virus kills 13 horses

Racing continues despite the loss of eight horses in Queensland and five in New South Wales, while first dog showing signs of the virus

A

thirteenth horse is confirmed to have died from the current outbreak of the Hendra virus in Australia. It is the fifth horse to die in New South Wales; the other eight horses have all died in Queensland. Meanwhile, in a concerning development, owners of a dog are awaiting the results of a second blood sample after “Dusty” revealed a positive to Hendra in a first test. He is the first dog to reveal symptoms of the virus, worrying vets that Hendra has evolved and humans could catch the virus from canines. The Hendra virus, which is carried by carried by fruit bats, can prove fatal to

humans and in the first known outbreak of the virus in Australia in 1994, 13 horses were killed and one trainer, while in a second smaller outbreak a horse owner died 14 months after his two horses were killed from the virus. He was found to have Hendra virus in the brain. All human deaths were contracted from horses. “The horse had been in a paddock containing a fig tree, so it is likely that flying foxes were the source of infection,” said NSW chief veterinary officer Ian Roth. The news follows an audit of the state’s 126 racetracks to assess the exposure of horses to disease-carrying fruit bats, while the NSW Department of Primary Industries is advising

trainers to cover food containers and keep their horses off grass so they can’t ingest the urine, faeces or birthing fluid of bats. Jamie Orchard from Racing Queensland says he does not expect the growing outbreaks to affect its race meetings, while vets have confirmed that the likelihood of human contamination is low. “We don’t see the need for it to affect any race meetings at this stage, people are getting on with it,” Orchard told ABC news. “Certainly the trainers in the racing industry are very conscious of what steps they need to take to minimise the risk. “They’re already taking the various precautions that we’re recommending so we’re fairly confident at this point that racing shouldn’t be affected. “While we’re very conscious of every particular instance and the potential consequences of an outbreak, we think that the risks to the racing industry are wellcontained.”

No doubts... Arqana playing on ’ ,

A

...for leading sales consignor Ted Voute, who voices his opinion on all things bloodstock and sales-related

cursory look at the Arqana August catalogue leaves you under no illusion that it is a select international sale which now only houses 53 yearlings qualified for French owners’ premiums out of just over 200 on the first two days of the revised format. The days when the yealings at the sale were predominantly French-bred are in the distant past and the obvious concentration on attracting yearlings from Germany, Ireland, Italy and, of course, the US and Britain, has transformed the international appeal of the sale. As a vendor based in Britain, there is no disadvantage selling yearlings against such small numbers of qualified owner-premium yearlings. Now on a world stage, the sale compares well with other selected yearling sales. Over the past few years Arqana has stepped up its marketing effort making the most of the single most important advantage it can boast of – once buyers come to Deauville they will undoubtedly become repeat visitors as the seaside town has so much charm and sophistication on offer. All of this year’s select sales have the potential

the world stage

to be strong again with so many buyers participating for the quality yearling; there are at least 20 people who are prepared to spend over a million pounds on a yearling. Sir Robert Ogden has switched his alliance from the jumps to Flat horses and he is already reaping rewards, as is David Redvers for Pearl Bloodstock and the Al Thani family are enjoying a thrilling first foray into the sport. Both owners will be expected to feature in the list of leading buyers at all sales, including Arqana. France also has its own source of sportsmen and women who particularly like to buy in the country – Lady O’Reilly and the Marquise de Moratalla being especially fond of buying fillies to race in France. When I first sat on the Racehorse Owners’ Association (ROA) council four years ago prize-money was close to £100 million. Now, on leaving, it has fallen to a projected £32 million. It leaves me disgusted and worried that, despite a strong council, many of the political moves that have occurred during the time that I served the council have worsened an already fragile situation. The industry now more than ever relies on the resale of thoroughbreds to Hong Kong,

Dubai and the US as a last remaining income stream to lessen the escalating burden of costs to an already disgruntled owner. The ROA’s new president Rachel Hood has vision and may have a vehicle to act via ROA membership of the Horseman’s Group through which she can propel our industry the right way, whatever that may be. It is a nigh-onimpossible task which she may only get to start, but choosing the right path will be crucial and we must find someway of unifying the industry behind the democratic leaders that we have. The Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association (TBA) has systematically recruited top industry professionals to their board in order to protect the future of the Pattern race system. The TBA also has Horseman’s Group membership and I have no doubt that the ROA and TBA will be mutually beneficial. My political career on both councils has come to a voluntary end, but I will watch both closely and hope that the key to a successful industry is discovered. It is something that can’t be done without the full support from all owners and breeders who are involved in British horseracing.

Frankel proves the doubters wrong when winning the Sussex Stakes (G1) without even really coming off the bridle. It took jockey Tom Queally over two furlongs to pull the horse up. The son of Galileo has now proved that he is one of the best racehorses we have ever seen – a view agreed with by the handicappers who have put Frankel on top of the world rankings

Triumph and disaster

The twin imposters played their hands at Ascot, writes our new columnist Sue Montgomery

A

Nathaniel gallops to his first Group 1 success in the King George and Queen Elizabeth II Stakes under jockey William Buick. Sadly, Nathaniel’s victory was marred by the fatal injury to Rewilding. Nathaniel was beaten in his 2010 Newmarket juvenile maiden by Frankel

h, if only those who packed out the Newmarket July course one Friday night last August in their killer heels and disco frocks had paid more attention, they'd be able to say they'd seen some real stars. The winner of the mile juvenile maiden on the card was Frankel, whose subsequent top-level exploits at both two and three need no recapping. The halflength runner-up was Nathaniel, who now has the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes on his CV. Westlife? Who they? But for all the fine qualities Nathaniel displayed as he came of age at Ascot the 61st running of Britain’s great mid-summer showpiece will not be remembered with especial pleasure. Most grimly, it brought the twin imposters that are never far apart in any high-risk sport. While triumph stood with the winner and the team behind him – trainer John Gosden, whose faith and judgement were so well rewarded, owners the Rothschild family and rider William Buick – disaster went the way of the Godolphin operation, with the death of Rewilding. The fine four-year-old, winner of the Sheema Classic at Meydan earlier in the year, could not be saved after his near-fore snapped a quarter of a mile from home. There were just five runners, the fewest since Aunt Edith beat four rivals in 1966, for the Betfair-sponsored £1 million purse. But what the field lacked in quantity it made up for in quality and the stage seemed set for a compelling showdown between a closelymatched trio of older horses in Workforce, St Nicholas Abbey and poor Rewilding, with three-year-old Nathaniel a wild card in the mix. With a small field there is always the risk

of cat-and-mouse tactics but it seemed that Godolphin were going to negate that through the deployment of pacemaker Debussy and with him the promise of a regular, building gallop. But far from enhancing the spectacle, the antics of Debussy – reined back for the first two furlongs, which meant a slow early pace and hard-pulling horses – made it thoroughly messy. But credit to Nathaniel, and 23-yearold Buick, for coping with the unwelcome situation handed to them. Slightly reluctantly, Buick let his mount, an 11-2 shot, stride on before tucking in behind Debussy when he did eventually go to the front. Then, having had a tow into the straight, Nathaniel found plenty when required and the style in which he quickened and lengthened, and kept up his gallop to the line to win by nearly three lengths despite a left-hand drift, was that of a high-class animal. The tactical nous shown by Buick demonstrated, if it was necessary, the measure of the talent which caused Newmarket-based Gosden to fast-track him to the major league last year as stable jockey. But the unsatisfactory nature of the contest was emphasised by the showing of runner-up Workforce after an in-running mishap. Last year’s Derby and Arc winner was struck into behind on the home turn and was very likely feeling some discomfort as he veered across the course even more markedly than the winner as Ryan Moore applied pressure to challenge. After his fine second place three weeks previously against St Nicholas Abbey’s crack Aidan O’Brien stablemate So You Think in the shorter Eclipse Stakes, Workforce had started a strong 6-5 favourite back over his optimum trip on favoured easy ground. He had run

uk racing a disappointing fifth in the race 12 months before after his hard race at Epsom and once again his effort was below par, through no real fault of his. The Coronation Cup winner St Nicholas Abbey, entrusted to his trainer’s relatively inexperienced teenage son Joseph, came home straight and true in third place, but the first two had pinched first run on him off the slow pace. The race was supposed to establish some sort of definitive middle-distance hierarchy but it seems the Arc will, as usual, be the decider. It was a first King George victory for Gosden, 51 years after his father Towser won with Aggressor who, coincidentally, also beat a hotshot, Petite Etoile. The trainer’s playing of the long game with Nathaniel, a much later-maturing son of Galileo than Frankel, has been exemplary. He resisted the temptation to submit Lady Rothschild’s homebred, who did not break his maiden until April, to the switchback crucible of the Derby, despite the obvious promise of his second spot – to subsequent Derby runner-up and Irish Derby winner Treasure Beach – in a trial at Chester. Instead, Nathaniel continued his education at Royal Ascot, where he ran away with

packed grandstands, a grotesque parody of the splendid athlete he had been. Gosden’s balanced explanation, unmawkish yet compassionate, of the situation to the viewing and listening public did much to defuse what could have been a PR disaster on a showcase occasion. Nathaniel was the 23rd individual Group or Grade 1 winner worldwide for 2001 Derby, Irish Derby and King George winner Galileo, who now has had seven crops reach the track, and the eighth individual this year. Remarkably, six – Frankel, Roderic O’Connor, Misty For Me, Golden Lilac, Treasure Beach and Nathaniel – are contemporaries. Not even Galileo’s peerless sire Sadler’s Wells had six from the same crop win at the top level in the same season. Galileo is heading for his third sire’s title. But in Nathaniel’s case respect must also go to his dam Magnificient Style, whose nine runners (the first eight bred by the Sangster family) have each scored at least once and have won 30 races between them. The Silver Hawk mare’s now-celebrated son is the second of them to take a Group 1 contest, after Playful Act (by Sadler’s Wells), successful in the Fillies’ Mile at Ascot nine years ago (and later sold for $10.5 Above, Lady Rothschild enjoys the “Group 1 feeling” that her homebred colt has given her, and, below, jockey William Buick shares a moment with the horse, who now has the Arc firmly on the autumn agenda

the King Edward VII Stakes and he so blossomed physically and mentally after that experience that the decision to supplement the colt for the King George at a cost of £75,000 was made. The investment brought a dividend of more than £600,000, which should comfortably cover the cost of the Arc supplementary fee. Incidentally, Gosden’s conduct after Rewilding’s distressingly public demise, on a day sold to the non-racing public as one to represent all that is good about the sport, was exemplary, too. The stricken horse had crashed to the ground, but gallantly regained his feet and cantered on three legs past the

million). The others include Park Hill Stakes winner Echoes In Eternity and versatile Percussionist, who was fourth in his Derby, won a Yorkshire Cup and signed off last year with victory in the American Grand National. After the King George, Nathaniel entered the Arc betting in third spot, behind Derby winner Pour Moi and So You Think. Coolmore, then, currently dominates the Paris feature; Pour Moi is by Montjeu, while New Zealand-bred, formerly Australianraced So You Think, who had been mugged by Rewilding at the Royal meeting before restoring his reputation with his super performance in the Eclipse, is by High Chaparral. If the 1m4f pack is still being shuffled, it appears a welcome ace has popped out among sprinters in the powerful shape of July Cup winner Dream Ahead, for whom it was a case of reputation restored. Last year Khalifa Dasmal’s son of Diktat had, after taking the Prix Morny (G1) and

Middle Park Stakes (G1) by wide margins, been rated joint juvenile champion of Europe; this term he had, as his counterpart Frankel progressed to superstardom, become something of a forgotten horse. Dream Ahead’s must-have is ease underfoot. And, thwarted by an unusually dry spring, his Newmarket-based trainer David Simcock is another who deserves plaudits for exercising that virtue so essential among his trade, patience. Eventually, the colt’s comeback against Frankel over a mile at Royal Ascot set him up perfectly for the target of the summer’s top Group 1 sprint. And he hit it bang in the middle, overcoming traffic problems with an explosive late burst of speed for an impressively easy half-length success. On the day, much of the thunder of his explosive re-emergence at the top table was stolen by the fact of his being ridden by Hayley Turner, who was recording not only her first Group 1 winner but also the first

July 23 Another Group 1 winner for Galileo as Nathaniel wins the King George at Ascot. Magnificient Style’s 2yo Great Heavens, a sister to Nathaniel, is also with John Gosden, whilst her colt foal by Oasis Dream is called Throne Room. Nathaniel’s dam, the Musidora winner Magnificient Style, is a magnificent broodmare. She has had seven stakes winners from her nine foals that have raced. Rewilding’s sad demise a blow to Godolphin and their breeding operation. A dual G1 winner with a fantastic pedigree, he’s a real loss. York winner Satanic Beat gives first-season sire Dark Angel his 16th individual 2yo winner. Satanic Beat a £65,000 DBS purchase has an attractive pedigree – out of French Listed winner Slow Jazz (Chief’s Crown), closely related to G1 winners Zieten and Blue Duster (both by Danzig). Big handicap double for Oasis Dream as Bronze Prince’s Ascot win follows the victory at Newmarket for Swiss Dream. Softer ground is the key to Bronze Prince’s Ascot win – his dam Sweet Pea a pretty useful soft ground winner herself. Only a matter of time until Hoof It gives his dam Forever Bond a 2nd stakes performer. He’s a brother to G3 winner Ladies Are Forever. Sire Monsieur Bond is a really good value option for the small breeder – he stood this season at £3,000 at Norton Grove Stud. Ascot winner Rave looks a stakes horse waiting to happen for Oratorio.

Acclamation is the sire of no fewer than 19 2yo winners so far this season. Angels Will Fall is a speedily-bred daughter of 6f Listed winner Coconut Squeak.

My time: Hayley Turner after her July Cup victory

outright in Britain for a woman rider. In other countries such feats are, if not commonplace, common enough to pass without remark and Turner, who picked up the mount because neither Dream Ahead’s regular partner Buick nor Simcock’s second choice Jamie Spencer were available, is a good enough rider to make her sex irrelevant. But she will always cherish the day the big brown colt was Hayley’s comet, for while she is happy enough to act as a role model for aspirational girls, her first delight was for the milestone the victory represented in her own career. It is one of the Sod’s law rules of breeding that as soon as a stallion either dies or is banished that talented progeny immediately emerge. So it has been, in the latter case, for Diktat, who started his career at Dalham Hall Stud, was sent to France, came back to Newmarket, spent two years in Japan and is now in north-east Spain at Dehesa de Milagro, south of Pamplona. Although Dream Ahead was given his one chance over a mile, that he has proved a top-class sprinter should be no surprise. His sire won the Prix Maurice de Gheest (G1) and

ocus is beginning to sharpen on racing’s youth squad with a certain amount of reason, for by now we are as likely as not to have already seen a selection of the following season’s Classic winners. If you take the 29 such contests run this and for the previous five years, the heroes and heroines of 15 had made their debuts before the end of July. Of that sample the only one to have been tested at Royal Ascot was Henrythenavigator, who won the Coventry Stakes (G2) in 2007 and the 2,000 Guineas the following spring, ending a 39-year drought for the double. That may or may not bode well for this year’s Coventry winner and current Guineas favourite Power who is, as Henrythenavigator was, trained by Aidan O’Brien. The month’s higher-profile domestic contests, though, are not as a rule the sources of Classic stars. The Group 2 July Stakes, first run in 1786, is the longest-established twoyear-old race in the calendar but its influence as a pinpointer of anything but precocious talent is on the wane. The most recent winner to make an impact beyond a juvenile campaign was Noverre, who had his day of days in the Sussex Stakes as a three-year-old ten years ago. The latest to take the 6f contest, Frederick Engels, though, is already a credit to David Brown’s small operation and is clearly progressive. For his sire, the Polar Falcon horse Iceman, who left just two crops before his early death, it is only a case of what might have been but those at Cheveley Park Stud can comfort themselves with his three-parts brother Virtual (by Pivotal), whose first foals arrived this year. When Frederick Engels’ half-brother,

twitterings Talwar traces back to Doff The Derby, dam of Classic winners Generous and Imagine, and Talwar’s 3rd dam G3 winner Wedding Bouquet Entifaadha’s sire Dansili having a great time with his juveniles this year. Six individual winners now, three of which are stakes winners. July 22 In form sire – Haras des Granges’ King’s Stand Chineur has sired five winners in the last six days from only 11 runners in Great Britain. July 20 Sandown winner Clare Island Boy a ninth winner for first-season sire Strategic Prince (includes 5 winners overseas). Been a good start for Strategic Prince especially given that he’s not precociously bred – his dam Ausherra won Lingfield Oaks Trial. July 18 Salford Art, a decent third on debut at Windsor last night. He is not the first 2yo by first-season sire Sir Percy to show distinct promise. July 16 Coral Eclipse winner Notnowcato off the mark as a sire as Now My Sun wins the juvenile maiden at Haydock. Notnowcato, though by Inchinor, is from a stout damline. He is out of a Galtres Stakes winner Rambling Rose, herself out of a 12f winner. Beat Hollow’s Vagabond Shoes, winner of today’s Prix Messidor (G3), follows recent stakes winners Nature Spirits and Rhythm of Light. It has been a good few weeks for Juddmonte’s Beat Hollow and his £5,000 covering fee is decent value for a Group 1-producing sire. Beat Hollow also had six domestic winners since beginning of July, and his Ted Spread ran a cracker in Prix Maurice de Nieuil in the week. Charles The Great, a son of Holy Roman Emperor, wins the Weatherbys Super Sprint at Newbury. He is out of Jojeema (Barathea), an unraced daughter of Irish Oaks winner Knight’s Baroness. Wild Coco wins the Listed Aphrodite Stakes at Newmarket giving second-season sire Shirocco a fourth stakes winner. She is a daughter of German G2 winner Wild Side (Sternkoenig), 1/2-sister to German Leger winner Win For Us and German Oaks 2nd White Rose Improving Deacon Blues (Compton Place) wins the G3 Shadwell Stakes. His dam Persario is closely related to G3 winner Warningford.

When Frederick Engels’ half-brother, the useful sprint handicapper Colonel Mak, was offered at auction last year, the family’s exploits failed to fill the page

the useful sprint handicapper Colonel Mak, was offered at auction last year, the family’s exploits failed to fill the page. The same cannot be said for another Newmarket juvenile winner Harbour Watch when he made 58,000gns in the Tattersalls ring last year. His catalogue page was full to overflowing; his dam is out of a sister to Dubai Millennium’s dam Colorado Dancer, and thus a grand-daughter of none other than broodmare legend Fall Aspen. Harbour Watch, by Acclamation, took the 6f conditions stakes at the meeting, confirming the impression he had made on his debut as he stayed on strongly for a wide-margin success. But though he entered the Guineas lists, his sire, based at Rathbarry Stud, has yet to sire a Group winner beyond 6f. At the top level Equiano won two Kings’ Stand Stakes and Dark Angel a Middle Park; a rung down Lilbourne Lad, a Richard Hannon stablemate of Harbour Watch, won last month’s Railway Stakes (G2) at The Curragh; and Hitchins, successful in Group 3 company, finished third in the July Cup. Acclamation, though, is on a roll with his youngsters; at the King George Ascot meeting, the speedy filly Angels Will Fall held on in the 6f Group 3 Princess Margaret Stakes and the colt Talwar in the Listed 7f contest once won by Raven’s Pass. At Newmarket Red Duke stepped up from maiden victory to Group 2 level in the Superlative Stakes (G2), which has such as Dubawi and ill-fated Horatio Nelson among recent alumni. The John Quinn inmate, a 140,000gns Doncaster Breeze-Up graduate, was seen at his best through the last of the 7f. He is easily the best to date from the first crop of dirt runner Hard Spun; the son of Danzig, based at Jonabell in Kentucky, was placed in all three US Triple Crown races, but notched his sole Grade 1 success over 7f.

Where have they all gone? The post-Zenyatta void is worse than expected, writes John Sparkman

W

ith the biggest stars of the last two years all retired to stud, everyone knew that 2011 would be a transitional year for American racing. It is unlikely, however, that many observers realised just how unfocused and unsatisfying life in limbo after Zenyatta would turn out to be. The disheartening saga of the disappearance of the one holdover superstar talent, Uncle Mo, was temporarily alleviated by the performances of Animal Kingdom in the Kentucky Derby (G1), and even when unlucky in defeat in the Preakness Stakes (G1). That tentative new star also disappeared from the scene, however, after a catastrophic bump at the start of the Belmont Stakes (G1) resulted in a fractured hind leg. Among older males, nothing has appeared to take the place of the departed Blame, Quality Road, and Lookin At Lucky, all of

whom retired to stud this spring. Gio Ponti, the most accomplished older male remaining in training, performed respectably in the Dubai World Cup (G1), but has not seemed quite as good as he once was in his two starts back in the states. Ireland’s Cape Blanco, who is certainly a high-class horse on his day, finished in front of him in Dubai and beat him quite comfortably in the Man O’War Stakes (G1) in July. The best link to 2010 Classic form remaining in training has turned out to be First Dude, a big, handsome Stephen Got Even colt with a humongous stride, who made Lookin At Lucky stretch in the Preakness last year. After a series of near misses and disappointing efforts last year, owner-breeder Donald Dizney transferred First Dude from trainer Dale Romans to Bob Baffert. First Dude is rather one-paced, which is why Romans had him ridden on or near the pace, but Baffert decided to try taking him a bit further back and then letting him grind

away from the half-mile pole. The horse hasn’t been beaten since. An allowance win at Santa Anita was only his second career success in 15 starts, but First Dude followed up in the Alysheba Stakes (G3) and then ran down Game On Dude (also a Baffert trainee) in the Hollywood Gold Cup (G1). Sadly, as we went to press, the devil of this season also caught up with First Dude – it has been announced that he has been retired after a tendon strain. One would think that with the disappearance of consecutive Horses of the Year, Zenyatta and Rachel Alexandra, that the older female division would be rather dull. Instead the continuing rivalry of last year’s two best three-year-old fillies, champion Blind Luck and Havre De Grace, gave us by far the best race of the year so far. The pair met four times in 2010, with Blind Luck winning by a nose and a neck in the Delaware Oaks (G2) and Alabama Stakes (G1), respectively, and Havre De Grace taking

advantage of a 10lb weight concession to beat her rival by a neck in the Fitz Dixon Cotillion Stakes (G2). Neither could catch Unrivaled Belle in the Breeders’ Cup Distaff (G1), but Blind Luck finished a length ahead of her rival in second. Havre De Grace, a magnificent specimen from the only crop of Saint Liam, has clearly improved with age, and beat Blind Luck easily in the Azeri Stakes (G3) early in the year, and thus had to give Blind Luck two pounds in the Delaware Handicap on July 16. Blind Luck caught Havre De Grace at the top of the stretch, but the big filly repulsed several determined lunges until right on the wire where Blind Luck managed to drop her nose in front. It was a race for the ages, and hopefully these two top-class fillies will enliven the rest of the season with more battles. With Animal Kingdom on the shelf, Shackleford limited by his front-running tendencies, and few people expecting Belmont Stakes (G1) winner Ruler On Ice to repeat that performance under different circumstances, the three-year-old crown is there for the taking. It is entirely possible that Uncle Mo is not yet out of the reckoning. Uncle Mo is now back in training with Todd Pletcher and pointing tentatively for the King’s Bishop Stakes (G1) at Saratoga. If Uncle Mo wins that he will be trained for longer races this fall with the Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) the ultimate goal. Although some doubt

the Indian Charlie colt’s stamina, if he returns to his best he will be very difficult to beat at any distance he is likely to attempt. The three-year-old fillies are likewise essentially leaderless at the moment. Every big race seems to turn up a different winner. Plum Pretty, by Medaglia d’Oro, upset the Kentucky Oaks (G1), but then lost to Oaks third Zazu, by Tapit, in the Hollywood Oaks (G2). Buster’s Ready, by More Than Ready, lost to Royal Delta, by Empire Maker, in the Black Eyed Susan Stakes (G2), but then won the Mother Goose Stakes (G1). The most consistent filly is It’s Tricky, by Mineshaft, whose victory over Grade 1 winner Plum Pretty in the Coaching Club American Oaks (G1) was her fifth in six starts, after her

eanwhile, the industry’s struggle to deal with the issue of race-day medication, detailed in last month’s issue, took two predictable turns. Delegates at the much ballyhooed industry summit on medication in June spent two days talking about why banning race day medication was either a) such a great idea, or b) the dumbest thing they had ever heard. At the end of those two days of stating diametrically opposed positions the participants came to a consensus that what they need to do is....wait for it....have another meeting later this summer. The problem is that even if (when) the various industry associations represented at the summit decide that race-day medication should be banned, none of them have the authority to make it so. The Breeders’ Cup, on the other hand, does have jurisdiction (or at least assert they do – I’m not sure I would want to argue that court case in some states) to change the conditions of its meeting, and they announced in July that they intend to do so. Starting in 2012, the juvenile races will be medication free, and that ban will extend to all Breeders’ Cup races in 2013. The Jockey Club and other anti-medication organisations quickly added their support, and some sort of recommendation from the summit group is likely to emerge before the end of the year. With such an uncertain background, plus the stagnant economy, it is actually pretty remarkable that the market for two-yearolds in training held steady this year. That stability has given market participants a bit more confidence that they know how to price horses, and the year’s first yearling sale, FasigTipton July, also maintained course with a slightly lower average but a slightly higher median. In both markets, prices at the top are somewhat lower, but the middle of the market has been stronger than expected. If the market for horses has rationalised, can the administration of the sport be far behind? Don’t bet on it.

Dreams for the future

The July Cup winner may prove to be the last chance for the Godolphin Arab line to survive into the 21st century, writes Alan Porter

I

t is well-known that all thoroughbreds alive today trace back to three “founding fathers” of Eastern descent – the Godolphin Arabian, the Byerley Turk and the Darley Arabian. These lines extend to the modern day through just three male line ancestors, Matchem (grandson of the Godolphin Arabian), Herod (great-great-grandson of the Byerley Turk) and Eclipse (great-greatgrandson of the Darley Arabian). Eclipse turns out to have been well-named as horses that trace through him in the male-line to the Darley Arabian, have, quite literally, almost totally eclipsed the other lines. Around five years ago, one estimate suggested that 95 per cent of modern thoroughbreds now go back to Eclipse in male-line, and in the commercial populations of Europe, North America and Australia, that percentage is almost certainly higher. The Godolphin Arab/Matchem line was already in a precarious state by World War I, though two horses appeared – one in England and one in North America – who would revive the line, and ensure its existence to the current day.

Man O’War and Hurry On

In a strange instance of synchronicity, the two horses who would further the fortunes of the

32

www.internationalthoroughbred.net

line, Hurry On and Man O’War, had a rare number of similarities. Both traced to Matchem through West Australian, hero of the 1853 Triple Crown; both were out of mares from the same sire line – Hurry On was out of a mare by Sainfoin, while Man O’War was out of mare by a son of that horse; both were chestnuts of imposing stature and fiery temperament; both were virtually unbeatable and won a combined 26 of 27 starts, and both became champion sires. The English-foaled Hurry On (a foal of 1913) ran only six times, winning all six outings, including the September Stakes (a war-time St. Leger substitute run at Newmarket), and ended his career with a 10l victory in the Jockey Club Gold Cup. The brevity of his career, and the fact that he did not meet the top performers of his day, makes it difficult to know exactly how good Hurry On was, but his trainer the legendary Fred Darling, who saddled seven Derby winners, described Hurry On as the “best horse I have ever trained, and the best I am ever likely to train.” Hurry On went on to earn honours as champion sire of 1926 becoming the first Matchem line sire to achieve the feat in 69 years. He was also a champion sire of twoyear-olds, champion broodmare sire three times and produced four Derby winners.

After a sensational start, Riddle decided that Man O’War was such a dominant sire, that there was no need to send him high-class mares

Man O’War, foaled four years after Hurry On, is better-known than his English counterpart, and is still one of the standards by which equine greatness is measured in the US. A champion at two and three, he won 20 of 21 starts, including the Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes, and after being withheld from the Kentucky Derby, he defeated that year’s Derby winner, Paul Jones, while conceding 20lb. In his racing career, Man O’War set seven track records, two of which were worldrecords for the distance. At stud, Man O’War was primarily utilised as a private stallion by his owner, Samuel Riddle. His stud career was initially carefully managed, but, after a sensational start, Riddle decided that Man O’War was such a dominant sire that there was no need to send him highclass mares. In fact, he decreed that it was not worth spending more than $500 on any mare he intended to breed to his champion. Inevitably, Man O’War’s success rate declined, but even

so he was champion sire in 1926 (in another example of synchronicity, the same year as Hurry On earned his title in England), and ranked among the top ten sires another eight times. The Godolphin Arab/Matchem is still producing major winners, but, surprisingly, it is the line of the American, Man O’War, not Hurry On that is responsible for its most

recent successes in Europe. Despite his success as a sire, it took very little time for the Hurry On line to be whittled down to one branch as far as major racing in England was concerned. This was through Hurry On’s son Precipitation, who was foaled when his sire was 20 years old. A big, late-maturing colt, Precipitation was among the best of his age at three, but achieved his most significant victory when taking the Ascot Gold Cup as a four-year-old. At stud, Precipitation was very successful, and two of his sons, Chamossaire and Sheshoon, were champion sires in England and France, respectively. Unfortunately, the stamina that was a characteristic of Precipitation and his offspring was a commodity that was soon to be in diminishing demand in Europe, and this undoubtedly hastened the demise of the line. The last significant Hurry On line sire to stand in Europe was Sassafras. A son of Sheshoon (himself another Ascot Gold Cup victor), Sassafras won the Prix du Jockey-


horse profile Club, and Prix Royal Oak in 1970, and confirmed his place in history by ending Nijinsky’s undefeated record in that year’s Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe. Sassafras proved to be a relatively disappointing sire, although through him the Hurry On line still continues today in Brazil through the sires As de Pique, Thignon Lafre, Thignon Lake and Fantastic Dancer, who are all by Sassafras’s Prix Royal Oak (G1) winner, Henri Le Balafre. Another Sassafras son who went to Brazil, Baynoun, sired an exceptional performer in Sandpit, who earned over $3,800,000 racing in Brazil, North America and Dubai. Sandpit was given his chance at stud in the US, but made little impact.

Relic the first European Man O’War representative

Europe’s first really serious flirtation with the Man O’War line was probably Relic. He was by the intensly inbred and vicious tempered War Relic (by Man O’War, and inbred 3x3 to Fairy Gold and Rock Sand, two of the grandparents

of Man O’War), a good racehorse and sire, despite his character flaws. The second-best two-year-old of his crop (behind the mighty Citation), Relic suffered a career-ending injury after winning a pair of stakes in two starts at three. After standing just one year in the US, Relic was purchased by François Dupré, and spent six seasons in France before ending his career at Longholes Stud, Newmarket. Relic became a highly-successful sire of sprinters and milers, his progeny including the French 2,000 Guineas winners Mincio and Buisson Ardent, the Middle Park (G1), Sussex (G1) and St. James’s Palace Stakes (G1) winner Venture, Eclipse and Champion Stakes (G1) winner Pieces Of Eight, and the brilliant fillies Texanita and Texena. Unfortunately, though, none of Relic’s European stallion sons could establish a lasting line, and Europe would have to wait a little longer for a Man O’War line horse to establish a beachhead. The horse who achieved this was Known

Fact, who was, like Relic, a descendent of War Relic. Known Fact’s sire In Reality proved to be an outstanding sire, and through his sons Relaunch and Valid Appeal, re-established the Man O’War line in the U.S. Winner of the Middle Park Stakes (G1) at two, Known Fact proved himself a top-class miler at three, taking the 2,000 Guineas (on the disqualification of Nureyev), the Waterford Crystal Mile (G1) and Queen Elizabeth II Stakes (G1). Standing in England and the US, Known Fact sired more than 50 stakes winners, including Warning, winner of the Nunthorpe Stakes (G1), So Factual and the champion older miler Markofdistinction. As both a runner and a sire, Warning proved to be the standout for his sire. Beautifully-bred he was out of the Oaks runner-up Slightly Dangerous, the dam of four other stakes winners, including Derby and Irish Derby winner Commander In Chief as well as Deploy, the broodmare sire of Dubawi. In addition, Slightly Dangerous was also half-sister to the dam of the outstanding sire, Rainbow Quest. Successful in the Richmond and Champagne Stakes at two, Warning went on to establish himself as a stellar miler with wins in the Sussex Stakes (G1), Queen Elizabeth II Stakes (G1) (in an epic battle with Kris) and Queen Anne Stakes (G2). Unfortunately, Warning died when only 15 years old. However, he left behind more than 50 stakes winners, including the Group 1 winners Diktat, Piccolo, Give Notice, Sumati, Prophecy, Sunningdale and Calstone Light. Although five sons of Warning – Averti, Bishop Of Cashel, Charnwood Forest, Diktat and Piccolo – have sired Group or Grade 1 winners (as has Charnwood Forest’s son, Firebreak), the line has been lacking an obvious candidate to continue it’s influence at the highest level. That, however, has changed with the appearance of Diktat’s son, Dream Ahead. A 9l winner on his debut, Dream Ahead impressively accounted for subsequent French 2,000 Guineas winner, Tin Horse, in the Prix Morny (G1). The hat-trick was completed in the Middle Park Stakes (G1) where Dream Ahead reveled in going classified as soft to romp home 9l clear of Strong Suit. Brought back two weeks later for the Dewhurst Stakes (G1), Dream Ahead failed to fire behind the dominant Frankel, either because he was over the top, or that, as his jockey suggested, he was unhappy on going

horse profile labelled good-to-soft, but somewhat looser than he’d met in the Middle Park. At the end of the year Dream Ahead was joint top rated on the two-year-old handicap, equal with Frankel. Making his 2011 debut, Dream Ahead appeared not to stay when unplaced behind Frankel in the St. James’s Palace Stakes, so it was no surprise to see him revert to sprinting. In the July Cup (G1), Dream Ahead faced 15 rivals and ground rated good to firm. However, neither his rivals nor conditions underfoot troubled Dream Ahead as he scored without ever having been shown the whip.

Dream is from a speedy female line

As a dual Group 1-winning two-year-old, who was officially co-top juvenile of his crop, and who is now a Group 1 winner against older horses at three, Dream Ahead already has much to recommend him as a stallion

A half-brother to the Listed-winning and Group-placed Into The Dark (by Rainbow Quest, who is from the same family as Diktat’s sire, Warning), Dream Ahead comes from a female line that has been producing high-class speedsters for four generations. His dam, Land Of Dreams (Cadeaux Genereux), won the Flying Childers Stakes (G2) at two and the King George Stakes (G3) at three, and she is out of the Molecomb Stakes (G3) heroine Sahara Star, a daughter of Green Desert. The third dam Vaigly Star was by the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe victor Star Appeal, but was also a sprinter. Although she never won a black-type event, Vaigly Star was good enough to take seconds in three Group contests, including when dividing Sharpo and Indian King in the July Cup. In addition to Sahara Star, Vaigly Star also produced Yalaietanee, a Sadler’s Wells horse who took the Greenham Stakes (G3), and Yalaietanee’s sister, Revonda, dam of blacktype winners Nashatara and Mad Rush. Vaigly Star had an even better brother in the shape of Vaigly Great, who not only won the Palace House Stakes, the Ayr Gold Cup, and the Abernant Stakes, but was also twice second in the July Cup. The chances of this family wielding such an impact seemed slim when Dervaig, the dam of Vaigly Star and Vaigly Great, was exported to Trinidad after a juvenile season in which she won once, finished third twice, and fourth of eight in the Hilary Needler Trophy. Fortunately, Dervaig flourished in her new home, winning at least 10 races, and becoming a champion on the island, and these deeds – perhaps combined with those of Hoche, who was out of a half-sister to Dervaig, and who had recently become a star in Italy – saw her repatriated.

As well as the romance of his background, Dream Ahead also has some intriguing elements in his pedigree pattern. To start with, the cross which produced Dream Ahead, that of Diktat with mares by Cadeaux Genereux, has produced not only Dream Ahead, but also the Falmouth Stakes (G1) winner Rajeem, these being the only two Group 1 winners for the sire. One link between the pedigrees of Diktat and Cadeaux Genereux is the mare, Mixed Marriage, who is grand-dam of Known Fact (sire of Diktat) and dam of Atan, the sire of Sharpen Up, broodmare sire of Cadeaux Genereux. The case for the potential importance of this duplication is supported by the fact that seven of Diktat’s 21 stakes winners (33 per cent), and five of his 12 Group winners (42 per cent) – percentages that are well in excess of the representation of Sharpen Up in the mares he has covered. Interestingly, Sharpen Up appears in the dams of more of Diktat’s stakes winners than he does in stakes winners by Warning and all of his other sons put together. This suggests that something else might be going on, and perhaps it is the combination of Mixed Marriage and genetic relatives. Mixed Marriage is by Tudor Minstrel – a genetic relative to Fair Trial – out of Persian Maid, a mare whose dam, Aroma, is a three-quarters relative to Tudor Minstrel. Diktat’s broodmare sire, Sadler’s Wells, has a second dam by Forli, who is inbred 3x3 to Fair Trial and his threeparts-sister Riot. Diktat’s second dam Park Appeal is by Ahonoora, whose dam is inbred to Fair Trial. His third dam Balidaress is by Balidar (also the grandsire of Cadeaux Genereux), a grandson of Tudor Minstrel, and she is also inbred to Fair Trial. Overall, Dream Ahead has seven crosses of Fair Trial, two of his three-quarters relative Aroma, one of his three-parts sister Riot, four of his genetic relative Tudor Minstrel, and one of another genetic relative, Abernant. Incidentally, to bring the story full circle, Dream Ahead also carries six crosses of Man O’War and three of Hurry On. As a dual Group 1-winning two-year-old, who was officially co-top juvenile of his crop, and who is now a Group 1 winner against older horses at three, Dream Ahead already has much to recommend him as a stallion prospect. Perhaps it is his destiny to extend the European male line of the Goldophin Arab on into the 21st century.

purebred arabian horseracing

It’s my heritage...

...Paul Haigh asks Sheikh Hamdan about his love of Arabian horseracing

38

www.internationalthoroughbred.net

I am keen to promote the racing of Arabian horses all over the world. The Arabian horse may not be quite as fast as the thoroughbred, but it is much more beautiful world. The Arabian horse may not be quite as fast as the thoroughbred, but it is much more beautiful.” So is the Newbury Festival part of any larger plan? “Yes it is. We have sponsored Arabian races in Germany and France for many years, and earlier this year sponsored a race in Melbourne, Australia to acquaint the southern hemisphere with the existence of the Arabian horse.” And what do you hope to achieve by your promotion? “The objectives are two fold. First, to secure the future for the Arabian breed. If we can popularise the racing of Arabian horses, this will naturally follow. Second, I like to think of the staging of Arabian racing as part of a wider education about Arabic culture and heritage.” How will you measure success? “There are many levels on which success can be measured. For example: attendance figures at the races, numbers of registrations of Arabian foals all over the world, but also the number of enquiries we receive from the Arabian Horse associations in many other countries asking us to assist in the staging of similar races in Europe and the US.” It would be silly to suggest, in spite of the clear success of the Festival as a family day out in midsummer and, as it is often described, as ‘Arabian racing’s equivalent of the Arc meeting’, that what has clearly for the Sheikh been a labour of love has been greeted with cries of joy by a grateful populace in any of these countries. In fact some

H

is Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid al Maktoum is not an easy man to buttonhole. The fact that he is Deputy Ruler of Dubai as well as Finance Minster and therefore tends to have more on his mind than the need to satisfy the curiosity of passing hacks about his hobbies may have something to do with it. But so too, if I read him correctly during an interview some time ago for the Racing Post, which was then still the property of his brother Sheikh Mohammed, does a natural reserve. He is not a man who seeks or requires public attention. This makes it rather surprising that, while he was unable to accede to an optimistic request for a conversation on the subject of the Newbury Summer Festival which he sponsors (too late came the thought that he’d obviously feel more comfortable talking to Arab speakers than English) he actually invited a set of questions and went to the trouble of answering them fully. Just by doing so he gives an indication of how important the subject is to him. It may seem obvious to some that his replies will have been filtered or polished by his “people” or even just constructed by his PR department. This is normally the case with written answers from important people who for reasons of time or geography don’t want to speak directly. But the answers did come in the first person singular, and just to reassure myself as far as possible I checked back and was assured that yes, they were his own. The first question is a pretty obvious one: Why is he going to so much trouble and expense to encourage the popularity and development of Arabian racing in Britain? “The Arabian horse is part of my heritage” he replies “and that of my country and the Middle East generally. I am keen to promote the racing of Arabian horses all over the

reaction, particularly to the interspersing of Arabian races with thoroughbred at major meetings such as Ascot’s at the end of July, has been quite fiercely defensive, especially from bookmakers who objected to the reduction in turnover which was the inevitable consequence of shifts to races full of unfamiliar looking horses with names most thoroughbred racing fans had never heard of. But if the Sheikh registered those quite vociferous objections, he is either too diplomatic or too dignified to mention them. In answer to Have you met any opposition, hostility or apathy? And if so from whom?, he replies: “We have always felt most welcome, although, when we first became involved in Arabian racing in the UK, our enthusiasm and investment may have been misunderstood. “It was very much an amateur sport in that it was not fully regulated and we were keen to move it forward and bring it to a wider audience. We apply the same professional approach with our Arabian horses as with our thoroughbreds and we are passionate about ensuring that everybody has an equal chance to succeed with all competitors – on a level playing field. In this regard I must thank the Jockey Club and the professional jockeys for their assistance and cooperation. “More generally,” he admits, “Arabian racing does still struggle to attain credibility amongst the traditional thoroughbred racing public. This is understandable as it has taken hundreds of years for the traditions of


Sheikh Hamdan is pleased with the progress that has been made in popularising and improving Arabian horseracing in Britian

thoroughbred racing to become part of British culture.” And how have you overcome it or hope to overcome it? “This year was our 29th at Newbury, and many of those attending were returning customers. So we are clearly making progress in popularising the sport. “We have taken the promotion out into local Newbury schools, engaging the young children with competitions, as part of which they learn about our rich Arabian culture and heritage. These children are the racegoers of tomorrow. We hope to introduce similar competitions into the schools around Thetford, where our headquarters are located. “We remain committed to supporting the various regulatory authorities in their quest to enforce adherence to the rules so as to provide racing that is safe for both horses

and jockeys and that is conducted in the best traditions of fair competition.” All of which seems pretty unobjectionable stuff from a man who clearly takes pride in his Arabian heritage and wants to project it in a favourable light to countries in which almost all attention on his region has, for at least the last few decades, been negative. His passion for the breed which he sees as one of the symbols of Arabian culture is one he wants to share, and he has the wealth to try and make that happen. He sees no contradiction between his love of the thoroughbred and his love of the Arabian horse. Whether the objection to Arabian racing is motivated by those who are hostile to Arab culture per se is a hard one to answer. More likely it comes from bookmakers who are really interested only in betting mediums they

have put themselves in a position to control. To be fair to the bookies, they, of course, would argue that their likes and dislikes only reflect the tastes of their customers. But their customers’ tastes are largely dictated by exposure to opinion forming information. Whenever you finish an interview you find yourself thinking ‘I should have asked him...’. With written answers this esprit d’escalier, and the regret it engenders, gets even more intense. In this case the questions that might have provided interesting answers were: “Do you think the Racing Post would now be carrying Arabian racing form if Sheikh Mohammed still owned the paper?”; and: “Does it make you laugh that the bookies are happy to encourage punters to bet on cartoons but not on races involving the beautiful animals from whom the thoroughbred is descended?”

Living the Arabian dream

your career. For Terri Smith, who desperately wanted to spend her life in horseracing, being born in Portsmouth therefore initially didn’t bode too well. There were few trainers in the area and even less who were happy to give a 16-year-old girl a Saturday job. But trainer Bill Smith, an accomplished trainer of Purebred Arabians and thoroughbreds, could see how passionate Terri was about horses and he didn’t hesitate to welcome her at his yard. Little though did Terri suspect that his generous offer would ten years

In fact, Terri is already the trainer of Floren, an 11-year-old Purebred Arabian, who recently ran in the Private Banking From Emirates NBD International Stakes on the Dubai International Arabian Raceday at Newbury. “In the beginning I only rode Bill’s endurance horses,” remembers the now 28-year-old Terri, as she relaxes at lunchtime with a cup of tea in her flat at Mick Channon’s stable. “No one in my family is into horses, but I got addicted when I was a child, first when I was riding ponies and then show jumpers. But I always liked going faster!” Unsurprisingly, after having spent a lot of time putting horses on the walker and doing

yard duties, as well as riding the occasional endurance horses on a Saturday for Smith, the desire to ride thoroughbreds became too strong. She joined John Dunlop’s yard at Arundel, but still Terri’s passion for Purebred Arabians remained firmly in place. “I was 16 when I left school. I then had a year out and during that summer I worked for Bill full time,” she explains. She pauses and when she continues a note of regret has crept into her voice: “Then I went to college at Winchester where I did a national diploma course of horse management. “I was doing very well the first year, but I just couldn’t see it going anywhere, so I left, but I wished I hadn’t. I wish I had stuck it out. If you want to train later on, it’s good to have it.” Like many young people, carving a career in today’s economic climate is not easy, but Terri, who gets up at 5am every day to feed Floren, her Arabian, stabled just down the road from Channon’s, is determined to make her way.

S

he is supported by her fiancé Adam, whom she met at Smith’s yard and who happily gives up his free time to drive Terri and Floren to the various racetracks around Britain that organise Purebred Arabian racing. “I have always loved being around the Arabians,” smiles Terri. “People in jump racing think it’s like pony racing, but those working in Flat racing seem to appreciate Arabian racing. But then I guess at the end of the day, thoroughbreds do come from Arabians.” And she adds: “Arabians are a real character. There is something quite majestic about them, especially the stallions.” Purebred Arabians will always be Terri’s first love and nothing gives her more pleasure than seeing Floren run. It doesn’t matter if she rides him herself or if a professional jockey is on board. “Floren wasn’t the first Arabian I owned and trained,” continues Terri. “Adam used to ride a little filly at Bill’s. We bought her at the sales and thought we would train her ourselves. “The ARO [Arabian Racing Organisation] encourages small owners and you can get them rather cheap. That is if they are not those

super Arabians who ran in the Group races at Newbury the other day! The ARO tries to get people into it – get your horse and train it yourself. “The website is full of information and they tell you what you need. To get my licence to ride I told them I rode for Bill. With the training licence it’s similar. It is not like a thoroughbred licence where you have to show facilities and qualifications.” Purebred Arabian racing is still considered an amateur sport, even though at Newbury there were eight races on the card, including four Group 1 PA races. Professional jockeys, including Richard Hills, Steve Drowne and Alan Munro, were riding that day, as was apprentice Martin Harley, who rode Floren. “Martin works for Mick,” explain Terri. “The majority of the time I ride Floren, but I get jockeys for the big races. I got a jockey on him to see if they can get a bit more out of him than me, because I’m not that race fit. “Floren is the only horse I race ride. And the Dubai day at Newbury is our Royal Ascot, so it’s important to have a runner there.” Unfortunately, the rain turned the track too soft for Floren and Terri admits: “He didn’t run very well. The ground went soft and he didn’t like it. He is hard work on soft ground. But,” and she quickly jumps to her horse’s defence: “he rarely fails to come back from the racecourse without any money, even if it is just for best turned-out!” Terri’s family had come to Newbury to see her saddle Floren on that important day and even though she would have preferred to see him win, she indeed picked up some money, reliable Floren winning that best turned-out prize. “I got £300 for that,” she giggled. “That is more than they give at Royal Ascot for the thoroughbreds. So it was a great day.” Training and riding her Purebred Arabian for the last ten years has given her many insights into the sport and will eventually make the transition from exercise rider to trainer just that little bit easier. “I think it is a great way to get into training,” she confirms. “You learn a lot about injuries,

fitness and also about how to enter your horse, which will be helpful when you branch out. “I mean, I think just generally being around racehorses in a big yard like Channon’s, you learn things all the time. You are always broadening your knowledge. And there are some things you see and think, yes this is how I will do it and others where you think, okay, it might work for the thoroughbreds but not for the Arabians.” So where does Terri see her future? She thinks and says: “For the time being I like working for Mick and I like the thoroughbreds. I like going fast. You know you can’t compare the two, as the pace is so different. Arabians just feel so much slower. But yes, one day I would like to have my own yard and do some pre-training of thoroughbreds. I think that’s a good way to start. I wouldn’t want to start out straight away training thoroughbreds as people have such high expectations and you are under constant pressure. “And I would also definitely train a couple of Purebred Arabians. Most people have Arabians as a hobby and so they are happy to pay the training fees. If they win, it’s obviously a bonus, but really, most people just like them.” Under the current rules, Purebred Arabians cannot be stabled at the same facilities as thoroughbreds in full training, even though they can use the gallops once the thoroughbreds have done their work and left. She smiles: “That is why I want to do pre-training and maybe some breaking of thoroughbreds. In that way the horses are not officially ‘in training’ and then you can have some Arabians as well.” Terri and Adam, who are getting married in May 2012, have it all figured out. They enjoy both breeds of horse and are certainly full of enthusiasm for the sport that they have chosen not only as their hobby, but as their career. Since they moved to West Ilsley, the workload has become more important and sometimes it’s hard to get up at five o’clock to feed Floren before starting in Channon’s yard at 5.30am, but Terri blanches at the suggestion that life would be easier without the Arabian. “At the time when I started in racing, I wasn’t as busy as I’m now, that’s true,” she declares. “But I couldn’t just get rid of him just because I’m busy! “I’m addicted to him. Generally just seeing him at the races gives me the most pleasure. Whether I’m riding him or watching him gets me excited. I cannot imagine life without him.” And why should she? Training her Arabian is after all not just a hobby, but a very important step towards a future that can only thrive on this winning formula.

Beware the Ides of March...

Victor Sheahan looks further into the impact a late birth date may have on a yearling’s sale price and discovers that a negative correlation does indeed exist

J

ulius Caesar was told to be wary of the Ides of March. Unfortunately, he ignored that advice and was stabbed 23 times. The middle of March also corresponds to the average birth date for foals in the UK and Ireland. Contrary to some previous research, I believe there is evidence that a late foaling date may impact upon sale prices. The consequences of a foaling date after the middle of March might not be a bloodbath, but should be noted by commercial breeders. For buyers, the opposite may also apply in that there could be bargains to be had among the later born foals.

Past Research Surprisingly little research has been carried out on the impact of foaling dates on sales and racecourse performance. Dr. Mina Davies Morel compared the birth dates of over 600 horses with their Timeform ratings at the ages of two and three. She found no statistically significant correlation between birth date and three-year-old ratings, but some correlation with the two-year-old ratings. In the US, research by Huntington Equine of Lexington in Kentucky, analysed the performance of May-born foals. May foals

comprised 13 per cent of the Kentucky foal crop during the period they reviewed and they proceeded to win 12.3 per cent of all graded stakes races, 13.3 per cent of Grade 1 races and 12.2 per cent of graded stakes races for two-year-olds. This research indicates that foaling dates do not have a significant impact on racecourse performance and accordingly one would expect that it would not impact on sales price I have no reason to dispute the findings regarding racecourse performance, however it is buyer perceptions (not the reality) that matter, and there may still be a lingering

Hypothesis

If there is a bias against purchasing late foals, I would expect it to be most evident with sires that are expected to excel as two-year-old sires. Furthermore, I would expect the impact to be more obvious with colts than with fillies for whom a greater percentage of the value is linked to pedigree than likely racecourse success.

Methodology and stallions chosen

I analysed the sales results of three firstseason sires, all with relatively large numbers of yearlings sold in the UK, Ireland and France in 2010. The sales results were then analysed by sex and by foaling date to see if any correlations were evident. All the sires selected were top class twoyear-olds themselves and could reasonably be expected to make an impact as two-year-old sires. Dutch Art was an unbeaten two-yearold who won the Norfolk Stakes (G2) at Royal Ascot before notching a Group 1 double in the Prix Morny and Middle Park Stakes. He retained his form well at three finishing placed in the 2000 Guineas, the July Cup (G1) and the Prix Maurice de Gheest (G1). Teofilo was another unbeaten two-year-old, who won five races including the National Stakes (G1) and the Dewhurst Stakes (G1). He was winter favourite for the Guineas and Derby, but a series of setbacks meant he did not run again.

The average price for colts born before March 15 was higher than for those born after March 15 for all three sires. The opposite effect was observed for fillies by all three sires

distrust of late foals that could have an adverse impact on prices. Indeed, if breeders were not concerned about foaling dates surely there would not be so many mares placed under lights in order to hurry on their gestation? The only research I could find relating to foaling dates and sales prices came from Rachel Pagones and written in the Racing Post. She looked at over 1,500 yearlings sold in 2005 at Doncaster and Tattersalls. She found some correlation between the two at the Doncaster Sales, very little at Tattersalls and concluded that “there is little or no practical advantage to having an early foal, in terms of selling it as a yearling or racing it in high-class two-year-old and three-year old competition”. Her conclusions are no doubt valid in a general sense, but I believe there are instances where the finding should be treated with caution and subject to further research.

Dark Angel ran nine times at two, winning four races, including the Middle Park Stakes (G1) and the Mill Reef Stakes (G2). He was somewhat controversially retired to stud directly after his two-year-old season.

Findings

There was a considerable span in birth dates ranging from January 21 to May 24. As you can see from the table opposite, The average price for colts born before March 15 was higher than for those born after March 15 for all three sires. The opposite effect was observed for fillies by all three sires. Looking at a statistical correlation between the sales price and the number of days born after January 1 a negative correlation (i.e. the higher the number of days since January 1, the lower the sales price) could be seen for all sires for the colts and for one sire of the fillies. With the colts the correlation was most pronounced with Dark Angel, followed by Dutch Art and then Teofilo. This perhaps corresponds to perceptions of the sires with Dark Angel being thought by many as an out and out two-year-old sire, whilst Teofilo’s offspring would be expected to progress with age and the Dutch Art’s stock falling somewhere between the two.

Weaknesses in methodology and findings

The sample sizes, although acceptable, were still much too small to allow us to be too dogmatic about the findings. Ideally, the tests would be run for a much larger sample of stallions and checked over a number of years. Currencies were converted at an average exchange rate for the year, which is not best

Dutch Art: the average price for his colts born before March 15 was greater than those born after

practice but proved a necessary shortcut. It would also be better to take into account factors such as the auction date to see if there was an impact there. Even though I did not expect to see a noticeable impact with regard to the fillies, it was still surprising to see the results follow the opposite pattern to that of the colts. It would be interesting to discover if this pattern is elsewhere or just an aberration.

Conclusions

These findings do tentatively support the assertion that date of birth can impact on sales price. However, the statement needs to be qualified as the impact relates only to colts and is I believe of significance only in sires that are perceived as being two-year-old sires. In practical terms, I would see it of relevance for commercial breeders who were considering a late covering for their mare. In such circumstances they might wish to consider that using a perceived two-year-old sire could result in a lower than expected sales price. They might think about modifying their mating plans accordingly. For buyers late foals may present good buying opportunities.

the sales men

Hoyeau and Henry

The two sales men answer questions regarding their company’s two early auctions: Arqana August & DBS Premier

Why is the sale to be held later in August than before? Had we stuck to the previous format and dates, we would have ended up selling before August 15, which everybody agreed would have been a very early date for young horses to reach their peak condition. We think the additional time provided by the new dates will be very beneficial to the yearlings, as well as to the general atmosphere of the sale as it is now positioned in the wake of the Prix Morny weekend, which is the real highlight of the August meeting. Actually, the August sale has already taken place around these dates in the past, so it not something totally new. Finally, thanks to the cooperation from DBS who have agreed to

Eric Hoyeau: will be selling from a new-look sales ring this August

www.internationalthoroughbred.net

move their own yearling sale, the new dates will enable us to keep the same slot for the coming years. Why is the sale not to be held on the same days as before? And why such a late start each day? The new dates and format were decided as a result of a wide consultation process among our vendors and buyers. A general consensus came out in favour of long inspections periods, allowing buyers to work professionally whilst making the most of the Deauville lifestyle. The fact that the sale takes place from the Monday through to the Thursday enables all our British clients to enjoy York’s Ebor festival and still have enough time to thoroughly inspect the yearlings in Deauville before the sale kicks off. The late start on the first three days is a result from our desire to accommodate comfortable inspection periods, as well as from the racing fixtures at Deauville and Clairefontaine. On the last day however, the sale will start at 2:00pm to enable clients to head back home on Thursday night if they wish so. We even asked Cityjet to schedule an additional flight from Deauville to London City and Dublin at 5:50pm that day. Is this not in danger of making it difficult for busy owners to attend? On the contrary, it will never have been as convenient to attend the August sale as there is no competition from other sales or major race meetings that week. The international focus will fully be on Deauville, with race meetings of international significance both on Sunday and Tuesday. Moreover, the town is no longer as crowded with tourists in the second half of August as around the bank holiday weekend of August 15, which means our clients will find it easier to book hotel rooms and tables in the local restaurants. The flights operated by Cityjet from Dublin and London City to Deauville airport make is very simple for British and Irish professionals to attend.

Finally, the majority of the yearlings catalogued in Part 2 will be available for inspection right from the beginning, and all of them from Tuesday morning. What are your expectations / hopes for the sale? What are your thoughts on the current economic situation? Despite the economic context still being uncertain, one can only observe that the PMU’s turnover is yet again on the up this year, which guarantees the level of French prize-money. Thoroughbred sales in Japan and the US have held up well so far, as have the breezeup sales in Europe, and particularly in France. The appetite for good horses seems as vivid as ever and both parts of our catalogue are very solid. The new format, whereby yearlings in Part 1 (Monday and Tuesday) are catalogued alphabetically, means that there is more diversity over the first two days than in the previous format, in which the catalogue was graded day by day. This change should ensure a busy trade from the outset. Both parts are very consistent, and the standard of quality is very high, as showed by the fact than half of the yearlings in Part 1 are siblings to Group performers (out of those whose dams have foals of racing age) and almost the same proportion are out of black-type mares. Have you had early expressions of interest from the big international players? Has your sales team been out on its travels this year? We travelled to Australia, Japan, Qatar, Eastern Europe etc. to promote the catalogue and several consignors have already received visits from prospective buyers, which is always a good sign. Are you pleased with the August Sale catalogue? Do you have as many consignments from Irish and British vendors as in recent years? As I said earlier, we are very pleased with the 2011 catalogue. The number of yearlings from foreign vendors (Irish but also British) is equivalent to last year, however there is a bigger proportion of yearlings qualified for the owners’ premiums in France. How is the new sale ring development coming along? What’s different? On August 20 when they start their inspections, our clients will discover a brand new sales pavilion. We think it will radically change their experience of the Deauville sales and make the nickname “the Sales Paradise” even more fitting than it used to be.


the sales men

Are there any new names / consignments out there at all? We are delighted to see Voute Sales back as consignors, whilst two notable newcomers are Car Colston Stud, whose draft includes a half-sister to Soldier Hollow, and Ballylinch Stud, which is sending a four-strong consignment that includes a particularly attractive Lawman colt.

You cut back on numbers last year for the St Leger Sale: is this repeated this year? The St Leger Festival Sale was a great success last year with a 30 per cent leap in average and median and vendors have reacted accordingly with an unprecedented number nominated. It has been a struggle to contain the sale to one evening and the numbers are 128.

Henry Beeby: looking forward to the Premier Sale

I think it will remain a buyers’ market though and purchasers will be unforgiving of any perceived weaknesses on paper or in the flesh

The Premier Sale plateaued last year with figures broadly the same as 2009: do you think gains can be made this year? Last year we consolidated our position and stopped the rot. The most significant factor was a 10 per cent rise in clearance rate to 81 per cent and this resulted from a sale with a real buzz. We are pleased with this year’s catalogue which has some excellent pages and are confident the physicals will be as good as ever. Are your numbers catalogued roughly the same as last year? Roughly similar. We catalogued 467 horses last year and that number is slightly up in 2011 with 487. This reflects the improved quality we have been offered following the vibrant trade last year. Has a fall in the number of yearlings bred been evident to you and your sales team through the spring? Not really. As above we have been offered more quality yearlings this year. However, I think you will see the later sales reduced in numbers as it seems the lesser mares are not being covered. Are your usual vendors present in the same numbers and with the same force? All the DBS stalwarts are represented with their usual strong drafts headed by Trickledown Stud who have the largest consignment of 22.

Do you think the continuing stringent government measures will have an adverse effect on middle tier demand for racehorses? Quality will sell at all levels as has been proven over the past 12 to 18 months. I think it will remain a buyers’ market though and purchasers will be unforgiving of any perceived weaknesses on paper or in the flesh. The key to a successful sale seems to be demand from a number of key players and investors: is your catalogue going to be attractive to those names? We were delighted that our 2010 buyers included such leading buyers as Sir Robert Ogden, Andrew Tinkler, Demi O’Byrne, John Warren who may not be considered “typical” DBS buyers in the past. They competed with DBS stalwarts, such as Peter Doyle/ Richard Hannon, Brian Meehan/McKeever Bloodstock, Blandford Bloodstock and Gill Richardson. We have every reason to believe that a similar buying bench will return to Doncaster this year and would hope that the exploits of our graduates would encourage any absentees to give us a try. You’ve moved the sale back a few days….? Primarily to accommodate a request from Arqana who needed to move due to York’s Ebor meeting running onto Saturday. However, the extra week can only benefit the yearlings and we will always work with others to assist the industry Any stand-out lots? Plenty, but on paper, I suppose a New Approach colt from Brightwalton Stud especially catches the eye and he is a lovely type, as well as New England Stud’s Pivotal filly out of a sister to Namid, the half-sister to Memory and the recent Group 3 winner Remember Alexandra from Trickledown, and the half-brother to Wootton Bassett from Furnace Mill whose page is improving all the time. But DBS has always been about the individuals and all the team can highlight some stand-out lookers whilst we will undoubtedly miss a star! I would stress the fact that there are many more and some stock by notable sires including Dubawi, Shamardal, Teofilo, Dansili, Oasis Dream and Pivotal.

You’ve got a new one-day “carnival” sale on September 9: is there really room for another “boutique” one-day sale? This is different as the focus will be on horses from the Flat and our experiences at Newbury and Punchestown tell us that these events are popular at present. The reaction from potential vendors has been positive, so let’s reserve judgment until the day! Why hold it the day after the St Leger Sale, why not the day before so owners have some money in their pockets to reinvest? The St Leger Festival Yearling Sale is established on Thursday of the St Leger Festival and we felt the fit for owners selling hoses in training on the eve of the world’s oldest Classic was good – again we’ll see! It is a joint Goffs/DBS sale: are we going to see more sales branded like this? We have been slowly merging the brands over the last four years, whilst playing on the strengths of each venue and team but you will see more harmonisation between Goffs and DBS over time. In addition, this sale is one that we hope will appeal to horses from both sides of the Irish Sea. Do you think the bonus scheme is continuing to have a positive effect on demand? Do you think winning owners are reinvesting? Yes and yes. There is evidence of both and you only have to listen to the reports and comments of the winners of the bonuses to see it’s worth and value. The originators of the scheme deserve praise for their foresight and we have been delighted to lend our support from day one. Are you keeping the sales race the same? The DBS Premier Yearling Stakes has been the most successful sales race and has stood the test of time with quality winners, none more so than 2010 winner Wootton Bassett who progressed to Group 1 winner. We have made no changes to the format this year and look forward to another competitive renewal at York on August 18.

sales thoughts

Sales thoughts...

In the first of a short series ahead of the main sales season, Anna Kerr gauges viewpoints from buyers at the front of the commercial market: this month, bloodstock agent Peter Doyle and Flat trainer Richard Fahey How do you think the yearling sales will pan out this year? RF: The right horses will make the right money as always, it’s the lower to middle market that will struggle. PD: I think they should be good. The Derby Sale had a very strong trade this June and I think that will carry over to the yearling sales. Do you think that smaller crop sizes will be an influence at all? RF: Probably not, the people who didn’t cover were probably mares that shouldn’t have been covered in the first place. If anything it should clear the lower quality horses out of the market. PD: This is the first year with smaller crop sizes and I think that will help. We still need a lower end of the market, how do you think this is best supported while ensuring that quality is produced? PD: For us it is all about the individual. We have always operated at the middle to lower end of the market and have bought some very nice horses, including Dick Turpin and Canford Cliffs so there is quality there if you find the right individual. Is the Racing Post Yearling Bonus still an important tool, do you know if your owners who have won will be reinvesting? RF: Yes, it is still a huge bonus, we’ve won eight or nine this year and those owners will be reinvesting. PD: One of the best ideas in recent years is the Racing Post Yearling Bonus scheme; people love winning it and owners are reinvesting at the sales. Sales races are the same, any incentive to get owners involved is a big help. Which yearlings by new sires are you looking forward to seeing? RF: I have no strong opinion we’ll look at them all. PD: We would always look at first-season sires; they tend not to be too expensive. We bought a few by Strategic Prince last year and we are expecting him to do well.

Peter Doyle (left) and Richard Fahey are supporters of the Racing Post Yearling Bonus Scheme Will you be heading to the US to buy? RF: We focus mainly on the European sales; I haven’t been to Kentucky for two years there’s plenty of decent horses here so I don’t feel the need. PD: We usually concentrate on the sales in Europe – Deauville, Goffs, Tattersalls, Doncaster. America will always have a relevance as they breed so many horses, but I don’t think the US horses have out performed the Europeans in recent years. If buying in France, will your clients be aiming to have the horse trained in France? PD: We’ve always found some very nice yearlings at the August sale in Deauville and the October sale has become much stronger. The majority of horses we buy go to Richard Hannon’s, but a small number would remain in France for owners there. Do you think prize-money issues in the UK are stopping new owners coming into the sport? RF: It’s always a contentious issue, people always look at the lower grade meetings. If you have a good horse there’s prize-money to be won. You can’t really compare with Ireland as

there are horses winning lower grade maidens in the UK who probably wouldn’t be placed in maidens in Ireland. Do you win something for less money or do you win nothing? If you’ve got the right horse you can find the prizemoney. PD: In France they have a great system with the PMU and no bookmakers, everything goes back into the industry hence the strong base for prize-money. There is adequate prizemoney in Ireland, but something definitely needs to be done in the UK. What are your thoughts on the various sales races? RF: Sales races are great if you’ve the right horse, we’ve been lucky with them. If you’ve got the horses to win it they are fantastic races, it gives owners a great chance. The only thing is that you have to enter them so early but I suppose that’s what they have to do to gather the prize-money. What sales do you focus on? Will you be going to France? RF: Deauville is a little bit early for my owners and a bit “a la carte” for me, but we go to every sale, never miss one. Some we buy 12, some we buy none. It depends on the individuals.

Timeless...

The famous photo-journalist Robert Capa was best known for his pictures of war, in particular the Spanish Civil War and World War II with his evocative images of the Normandy landings. However, photographs by Capa revealing a rather more light-hearted view of the racing and social scene of Deauville in August 1951 have been discovered by the International Centre of Photography, New York. The photographs are currently on display until October on the Deauville promenade, revealing the timeless elegance and fun of the summer horseracing season in Deauville.

here were only ten runners in the Epsom Derby this year who started at less than 50-1, and two of these, Recital and Native Khan, were bred at the Haras de la Reboursière et Montaigu near Argentan in Normandy and had been sold at the 2009 Deauville August sale. The pair finished fifth and sixth at Epsom and both are among the best of their generation in Europe. Just participating at this level is a fantastic

achievement for Aliette Forien and all of her team. Recital, a son of Montjeu and out of the Kendor mare Dibenoise, was the second top price of the 2009 August sale being bought by Demi O’Bryne for Є750,000. He is a brother to Corre Caminos, who was sold for Є200,000 at the 2003 August sale and won the Group 1 Prix Ganay in the colours of the Marquesa de Moratalla, as well as to the multiple Group winner Racinger.

“I was not really surprised that he made so much,” Forien remembers, “as I was expecting something between Є400,000 and Є600,000 and once you get to that level you never know how high the price will go. “He was a fantastic yearling, probably the best-looking colt I have ever presented for sale and so he deserved to make a good price as he had the pedigree as well.” Recital became his dam’s second Group 1 winner when defeating Bubble Chic to win

Native Khan: fetched €70,000 at Arqana and was sold on as a breeze-up for 180,000gns

the Group 1 Criterium de Saint-Cloud last November. At the beginning of this year he looked very good when winning the Group 2 Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial by a length and a half, beating Memphis Tennessee to whom he was giving 3lb. He didn’t run to his best in the Derby when

he hung into the inside rail most of the way up the straight, but was still sixth, less than 5l behind the winner. This year’s Reboursière Deauville draft includes a sister to Corre Caminos and Recital, as well as another Montjeu filly out of Ecume Du Jour, a half-sister to Corre Caminos and

Literato: the farm sells six yearlings from the first crop of its young stallion this August

Recital. Dibenoise’s 2011 foal is a brother to her two Group 1 winners. Native Khan was sold to the British pinhooker Malcolm Bastard for Є70,000 in August 2009. “The price was okay without being exceptional,” Forien says, “but we were pleased for the buyer that he made such a good profit when selling him for 180,000gns as a two-year-old. “Unfortunately, his dam Viva Maria has not had a foal since as she is very difficult to manage and has aborted at some stage or other every year. She is currently in foal to Astronomer Royal – we are still a long way away from having a foal – but we have her daughter Caipirinia, who was stakes placed and who is in foal to Azamour.” Like Dibenoise, Viva Maria is a daughter of Kendor who stood at Reboursière throughout his career. Viva Maria is a half-sister to Welcome Millenium and Ximb who were both Group placed. Native Khan has looked top class ever since winning on his debut at the Newmarket July meeting last year and has since won the Solario Stakes (G3) and the Craven Stakes (G3), as well as finishing third in the 2,000 Guineas. He was not beaten far in the Derby, but Vefa Ibrahim Araci’s colt subsequently disappointed in the Irish Derby, though his trainer Ed Dunlop said he might have been a little flat by then. Of the 31 yearlings Reboursière presented at the 2009 August sale, no fewer than 30 had run by mid-July this year and half were already winners. Aside from Recital and Native Khan the draft also included the juvenile Group winner Espirita, and several useful looking colts who could easily go on to win black-type later, including Dormello, a Dansili colt trained by Pascal Bary who has twice run into Reliable Man in conditions races, and Four Sox, a son of Shirocco who was second in an “A” race at Saint-Cloud in July. By mid-July, 23 per cent of the yearlings had achieved a rating of 95 or higher or the equivalent. Another attraction of the year’s draft from the farm this year will be six yearlings from the first crop of Literato, who stands at Reboursière. Literato, a son of Kendor, was sold by Reboursière to Jean-Claude Rouget for Є40,000 in August 2005. For Rouget, Literato won nine of his 11 starts, being beaten only by Lawman in the Prix du Jockey-Club and by

Hurricane Fly on reappearing at three. At two, he won two Listed races and, at three, three Group races in France, as well as the Group 1 Champion Stakes at Newmarket. “I don’t think Arqana were really planning to take all six for August,” Forien explains, “but they are such a good-looking, strongly made group that they had no reason to turn them down either. “I think the colt out of Rotina, he is a halfbrother to four Group winners, is outstanding. “On the whole the Literatos are taller and more strongly built than he was, but then the prejudice against small horses is hard to understand. I remember thinking at

As far as I can remember I have only ever had four yearlings sent back for a wind problem in all my years selling and all four ran and won races

Newmarket when watching Literato in the paddock before the race that he looked small compared with his rivals, but then he had such a special action that he proved to be better than them on the racecourse.”

The racecourse is where it matters

Hubert Honore of the Haras d’Omméel has no happy memories of the 2009 August sale; the sale began badly for his consignment and then got worse. Of the 11 yearlings offered only five were sold in the ring, and one of these was returned shortly afterwards. “The Antonius Pius filly was very good-

looking,” Honore explains, “and was sold for the excellent price of Є90,000 but a few days later she came back as the buyer felt she had made a noise. “I sold her on privately to a client of Richard Gibson’s and, as far as I am aware, she has never made a noise in training. “She is called Faustina and is now with John Hammond for whom she was third on her debut at Longchamp before winning her second start at Chantilly very easily in July. “As far as I can remember I have only ever had four yearlings sent back for a wind problem in all my years selling and all four ran and won races.” Omméel’s draft at the 2009 August sale has, despite the poor sales, turned out to have been an exceptional one. All 11 have run and the six winners include four black-type performers, which means that 54 per cent of the draft have won with 36 per cent having achieved a rating of 95 or higher. One of those who hasn’t yet won is Lavande Voilet, a half-sister to Lope De Vega who was still an unraced two-year-old at the time of her sale.

Hubert Honore has enjoyed an amazing season this year with his draft from 2009: all have run, six are winners and four are black-type winners

The Deauville August Sale drafts for the three vendors Haras De La Reboursière Et Montaigu

Sandslash, a daughter of Holy Roman Emperor and Slap Shot, was also not sold and is now an unbeaten Group winner having beaten older fillies and mares to win the Premio Carlo Chiesa (G3) in April. “Sandslash was very nervous from the moment she arrived at the sale,” Honore remembers. “She wouldn’t stand still and although we walked her for hours and then took the grill off the door of her box so she could see what was going on around her by the time she went up to the ring she had lost all of her condition and looked very small, and buyers just don’t like small horses.” Nice Danon, a son of Sakhee, was sold privately at the sale to Stall Angelo and although he was disqualified after winning a Group race at Baden-Baden at two, he has won and been placed in a Listed and a Group 3 race since. The other two stakes performers were both sons of Hurricane Run – Hurricane Higgins, who looked very promising when second in the Lingfield Derby Trial, and Arizona Run, a Listed winner who has won four of his six starts to date for owner Jean Claude Séroul and his private trainer Frédérique Rossi. This year, Omméel has only five yearlings in the August sale: a Stormy River half-brother to Pain Perdu who was second in last year’s Prix du Jockey-Club, a French-bred Dark Angel colt, two High Chaparral colts and a Lawman filly.

Juvenile run of success

Another breeder and Deauville vendor who has enjoyed watching the race results this spring is Thierry de la Heronniere of the Haras d’Ellon. The Haras d’Ellon offered six yearlings at


three french vendors the 2010 August sale of whom four had run by mid-July, including three winners and a runner up. Ponte Vespucci and Robert Le Diable are both among the better French-trained juveniles and finished second and third in the Listed Prix la Fleche in early June, while Regina Ejina also looked promising when winning in Lyon for Mikel Delzangles. The August draft is only part of the fantastic run of success of two-year-olds bred at Ellon this year as the stud has produced a further six two-year-old winners, while Séroul bred the Anabaa filly Al Nabaa, the unbeaten winner of her first three starts, at Ellon. “Although I am always trying to do things a little better we certainly haven’t made any major changes in our breeding programme,” Heronniere says. “This success gives me confidence in our methods. Our horses spend as long as possible outside. I have tried to buy some fillies and mares from precocious English families, like Red Begonia, the dam of Robert Le Diable, or Princess Petardia, whose Chichicastenango colt Ideechic had already won three races by mid-July, but you never really know. “My father bred two Group 1-winning twoyear-olds in Dragon and Vitiges, and Phaeton

who won the Grand Prix de Paris in 1967 when it was run over nearly 2m.” Ellon has five yearlings in this year’s August sale, including a half-brother to Calvados Blues by Manduro. Calvados Blues is probably the best horse sold by the stud recently and the son of Lando was Group 1-placed behind Rewilding in Dubai at the beginning of the year. The draft also includes a colt by Astronomer Royal, a High Chaparral filly and then two fillies from the Porlezza family, which has become associated with Ellon, by Authorized and King’s Best. “This family has two branches,” Heronniere explains. “One side of the family produces speed horses, such as Porlezza and her daughters Pontenuovo and Ponte Vespucci, while the other side all stay long distances. “It was my idea to send Ponte Brolla to Sicyos to get a sprinter, but you can’t change the nature of things and the result was the top mare Ponte Tresa, who stayed 2m and won a Group 2 over 1m7f. “On the whole the stayers tend to be bigger than the fast horses and at this stage I would say that the filly out of Ponte Tresa will stay while the one out of Bee Bee is probably a fast horse, but I could very easily be mistaken.”

A

few weeks after Reliable Man’s surprising victory in the Prix du Jockey-Club at Chantilly, Sven Hanson and his wife Carina Klingberg Hanson were still enjoying the moment. They sat down around a table in the living room of the Haras de Vieux Pont in Normandy to explain how the Pride Racing Club and its champion came to be; the Jockey-Club’s winner’s blanket was still draped over a chair

and the trophy itself pushed to one end of the table to make room for croissants and coffee. Hanson has been part of the racing world for more than 30 years and during that time has achieved many of the peaks which stand over those who set out to own, breed and race top-class horses. He bought a multiple Classic winner as a yearling, sold one of the first million pound yearlings, bred and raced himself an international champion and now he has

bred a Jockey-Club winner, in whom he has retained a significant share and who runs in the colours of a racing club he set up. He is the first to acknowledge that at times he has been lucky, but then that is balanced by the good decisions that he has made over the years. In many ways Reliable Man is a most unusual Classic winner. He was bred and raised at the Haras de Vieux Pont by NP Bloodstock, Hanson and Klingberg’s breeding company, but the son of Dalakhani is one of

Over and out for Pride Despite Reliable Man’s Jockey-Club success for Pride Racing, a disillusioned Sven Hanson is not planning to set up a second venture, citing French bureaucracy and a lack of interest from France Galop as reasons. Jocelyn de Moubray finds out more

four three-year-old colts who belong to the Pride Racing Club. Reliable Man and the others, who include the promising winners Toss The Dice and Supreme Wisdom, are not leased to the club, rather they belong to it and each shareholder is entitled not only to 1/40 of all prize-money and owner’s premiums won, but also to their share of the capital value of the horses. By mid-July this year the Pride Racing Club had already won nearly Є1,500,000, more than

enough to cover the one-off payment made for each share, which included all costs as well as the initial capital investment. The shareholders of the Pride Racing Club are all going to make a substantial profit, will have plenty more big days at the races as well as having enjoyed the first Sunday in June in Chantilly, which some proclaimed as “the happiest day” of their life. Aside from his owners, Reliable Man is also a remarkable Classic winner as he did not race

at two and the Jockey-Club was only the third race of his career which had started less than two months earlier with an easy win over 1m2f at Saint-Cloud. “He was ready to run in the autumn as a two-year-old,” Hanson remembers, “but he coughed and then the freeze came. After his first race Alain [de Royer-Dupré, the horse’s trainer] knew the Jockey-Club was the plan but then he had liked Reliable Man from the moment he first saw the colt. We have a

picture of Reliable Man and Alain together when he was a yearling and he is stretching out his neck to rub against Alain’s face.” Reliable Man could still be very good indeed and he has the pedigree to be a most attractive stallion as he is a son of Dalakhani out of a stakes-winning daughter of Sadler’s Wells. But, in yet another unusual quirk, in only two generations Reliable Man’s pedigree goes back to Fair Salinia, Hanson’s first Classic winner who won the Oaks, the Irish Oaks and the Yorkshire Oaks in 1978, and who was the first horse he bought with a view to winning highclass international races. “Winning with the Pride Racing Club has been,” says Carina Klingberg Hanson, “every bit as exciting as it was to win for ourselves with Pride. “We bred and raised Reliable Man here in Normandy and he is still a three-year-old

colt and so you feel the whole future still lies ahead. Since the race I have received emails from all of the different members of the club, most of whom were at Chantilly together with their wives, husbands, children and family and for all of whom it was an astonishing moment. “The Jockey-Club was in many ways a relief,” adds Hanson. “Many of the members of the club are my friends and I would have felt very bad if they had bought into a collection of ordinary horses. For us it was also a fantastic opportunity. “If the club didn’t exist we would certainly have offered all four colts for sale as yearlings and so we would have been watching from the outside as just the breeders, rather than taking part in such a wonderful moment.” The Pride Racing Club has 20 different shareholders hailing from Sweden, Norway,


pride racing Ireland, Denmark, Singapore, South America and France. Ecurie Nord Galop, a small French racing club with ten members, owns one share between them, and yet these members, along with all of the others, have been to Vieux Pont to see the stud, its mares and young horses and have been to visit the stables of Royer-Dupré as well. The idea of running a club came to the Hansons when they were looking for a way to make the stud pay for itself, without taking the risk of sending the colts to yearling sales. Once, when they had more than ten mares at Vieux Pont, the plan had been to race the fillies and sell the colts. Their breeding programme has proved to be very successful, – since moving to Vieux Pont they have raised about 20 per cent stakes winners to foals – but they realised that they were not succeeding in raising commercial yearlings.

The yearlings often made less than the Hansons had hoped for and then the couple felt that the youngsters were not always necessarily onwardly managed in a manner which allowed them to develop their potential. The initial idea for the club was to find a few partners to take shares in the colts and from this it was only a small step to consider setting up a club through which everything would be organised in a transparent manner. At the time the Hansons assumed that although it might be difficult to find enough buyers, it was 2009 after all, setting up the club itself would not be a problem. Sadly, the couple were a little naїve in this expectation. The disappointment of the whole experience for both has been the attitude of France Galop. From the moment the club was first

proposed to when Hanson and Klingberg mounted the rostrum to receive their trophies after winning the Jockey-Club, France Galop’s attitude has been, at best, obtuse. “When I won the Oaks,” Hanson recalls, “Queen Elizabeth II not only presented me with the trophy, but she chatted happily to me for several minutes. When we stepped onto the rostrum after the Jockey-Club, Edouard de Rothschild, the president of France Galop, took the microphone and announced that they were going to show a recording of the Derby at Epsom and make a presentation to Epsom’s winning trainer André Fabre. “We didn’t know whether we were supposed to go, or to hang around and watch the Derby with them. The man who changed the nature of the Jockey-Club was, it appeared, more interested in watching the

H

ansons first interest in racing came in his native Sweden in the early 1970s. “I had sailed in the Olympics in 1968, but as I had joined my family’s company afterwards I no longer had the time to become a sailing professional and so was looking for another activity,” he recalls. “I tried show jumping, but again I didn’t have enough time to train and so instead I turned to helping out my local racetrack at Gothenburg and I bought a few cheap horses in training in Newmarket to compete at the five-day festival there. This didn’t really work out either despite financial success so I decided that I was going to go to Newmarket to buy yearlings and I was going to compete at an international level.” Before arriving at the Houghton Sale in the autumn of 1976 Hanson happened to go racing in Paris that spring as a friend had a runner in a Classic trial. The race which caught his imagination was not the trial, but the Prix d’Harcourt, which was won easily by Liloy.

Derby than in congratulating the winners of his own Classic race.” And this was not the first time that the Hansons had been surprised by France Galop. Setting up a racing club would have been a simple administrative task in either Sweden or England, but in France it turned into a Sisyphean task in which from the beginning to the end France Galop refused to play an active role or in any way help push the burden up the slope. “The problem is that French commercial law and France Galop’s ‘codes des courses’ are hardly compatible,” explains Hanson. “However what I found difficult to accept was not so much that it took nine months to prepare the final proposition, which was so huge it weighed 7k, but that at no point did France Galop intervene with ideas or help. There will not be another Pride Racing Club.”

The yearling buying plan at the Houghton had been to buy three or four colts at an average price of 7,000gns, but when Hanson got the catalogue he saw that there was a Petingo filly offered by Oldtown Stud out of a half-sister to Liloy. “I went to look at her and she looked very like Liloy and, even though she was offset, I decided to try to buy her. My advisor thought she would make at least 25,000gns, but I went down to Newmarket on my own on Thursday morning and bought her for 13,000gns”. This was a big price, the equivalent of around 75,000gns in today’s money, but then she came from a good family as her dam was a half-sister to both Liloy and the Group 1 winner Faraway Son. Named Fair Salinia the Petingo filly was sent to the Newmarket stable of the young Michael Stoute, who had just turned 30. “I had done some serious research before picking out Michael,” remembers Hanson. “I looked at statistics and visited several different yards. I wanted somebody who wanted to win, not a social trainer. Michael and Alain are in many ways very similar: they are both hungry for success and meticulous.” Fair Salinia became a top filly: she finished second in the Cheveley Park Stakes at two, went on to give Stoute his first Classic win in the Oaks and then added the Irish Oaks and the Yorkshire Oaks to her cv. “People started to ask if she was for sale,” continues Hanson, “and Nelson Bunker Hunt wanted to buy and sent Abram S Hewitt to examine her on his behalf. “Astonishingly, Hewitt advised me not to sell her as she would make a great foundation mare and so I sent her back to stud at Oldtown.” Fair Salinia’s first foal was by Nonoalco, who turned out to be a poor sire, the second was a Habitat filly, who looked very promising before breaking a leg on the gallops, and the third was filly by Great Nephew.

“Michael went to look at the filly in the early summer and told me that she was barely trainable and so I decided to sell her as a yearling,” Hanson says. “When I arrived at the Houghton Sale that autumn Michael came running up to me to announce that my filly was the best in the sale. “The reserve was 200,000gns and by the time I had managed to reach the ring she was making 600,000gns. Michael was the under bidder at 900,000gns I think, and she was sold to Fahd Salman for 1 million guineas.” Stoute’s first judgment of the filly turned out to be correct – named Legend Of Arabia the million pound filly never ran. Fair Salina was a good producer nevertheless. Her 1990 Shirley Heights colt Perfect Vintage won Group races in France as an older horse and his year older half-sister Perfect Circle (Caerleon) started second favourite for the Oaks before finishing tailed off last. Fair Salina’s last filly was On Fair Stage, by Sadler’s Wells, and was born in 1993. On Fair Stage had a sinus problem as a young horse and had to operated on four times which left her with a disfigured face. She returned to the farm after only one race in England, but she seemed to go so well when ridden at home that Hanson decided to put her into training with John Oxx as a fouryear-old after she had been covered by Indian Ridge. She broke her maiden at Dundalk in July and won a Listed race over 1m1f on her last start at Tralee at the end of August. On Fair Stage has not had a straightforward career as a mare either and Reliable Man is the ninth and by far the best of her foals to date, even if some of the others showed great promise at one stage or another. Abram S Hewitt was indeed correct, but not every breeder would have persevered right to the end and gone all the way with Fair Selina’s offspring from the Nonoalco colt to the Classic winner by Dalakhani. “My father was quite surprised by my interest in racing,” Hanson continues. “I remember telling him that it was a great relaxation as it washes away my daily business thoughts while it is, and remains, intellectually challenging. “I have learnt from people I admire like Alain and Gerald Leigh, who was my partner in Fair Salinia for a time. In racing and breeding you have never finished, and there will always be a way to improve. I still believe that it is a fantastic game, even if more often than not it is, unfortunately, a poorly managed one.”


With Great

Pride

Congratulations to the Pride Racing Club after their wonderful colt, RELIABLE MAN, won the Group 1 Prix du Jockey Club at Chantilly on only the third run of his career. His first win came only 54 days earlier - he has come a long way in a short time. Reliable Man was bred and raised by Sven and Carina Hanson’s NP Bloodstock at Haras de Vieux Pont, their farm in Normandy. By Dalakhani, Reliable Man is one of four colts owned by the Pride Racing Club. The World Champion race mare, Pride, was bred by Sven and Carina, and the syndicate, which began in 2009, includes the first foal out of Pride. Her Galileo colt is called All By Myself. The other two colts are Toss The Dice, by Medicean and Supreme Wisdom, by Oratorio. The colts were reared on Saracen Level-Grow Mix and Saracen Stamm 30, part of a range of specialist thoroughbred feeds manufactured by Saracen.

Between them, the four colts have earned over 1,600,000 euros in prize money and owners premiums so far. Nous travaillons avec éleveurs et entraineurs en France, et nos produits peuvent être livrés partout. Working with

three french trainers

Young guns shooting high Jocelyn de Moubray meets three young trainers based in France and who have their sights set on reaching the very top of their profession Xavier Thomas Demeaulte

Xavier Thomas Demeaulte’s career as a trainer had to be more or less put on hold following a fall from a hayloft which left him in a coma for months and with a long convalescence before fully recovering his health. Since 2007 when he had 17 wins, he has produced more wins each successive year and, as he is quick to point out, this season he is already on schedule to beat last year’s record when he won 49 races with only 54 different runners. He is currently 24th in the trainers’ table by prize-money, one place and only some Є10,000 behind Christophe Ferland. This season he has won B races with the three-year-old fillies Sunday Nectar and Malicia in April and May, when these races are at their most competitive. Age: 40 Based: Mont-de-Marsan, south-west France Number of horses currently in yard: 52 First winner: My first winner was my first runner at Mont-de-Marsan in January 2002, Ewing Star a three-year-old who won his first-ever start over 2000 metres.’ Number of wins in 2010: 49 Number of wins by mid July 2011: 23 % wins to runs 2011: 19% Current ranking by prize-money: 24 Previous experience: I spent four years working for Francois Doumen and then four more years with Carlos Laffon-Parias in Chantilly. Best moment on a racecourse: It has to be when Great Blood finished second in the Group 3 Prix du Bois at Chantilly as a two-year-old, beaten only by Divine Proportions. She had won her first three starts, but I was still thrilled to be second in a Group race beaten only by a champion. Worst moment on a racecourse: Probably at Chantilly this year when Sunday Nectar was only fourth in the Group 2 Prix de Sandringham

three french trainers beaten less than 4l by Immortal Verse and by only three-quarters of a length for third place. She had won her first two starts well but at Chantilly she never settled and pulled herself into the lead. She went clear at the top of the straight but had done too much in the first part of the race and weakened but she only lost third place

in the final strides. On her next start she was even more unlucky as she was nearly brought down in a Listed race at La Teste.’ Hopes for remainder of 2011: I certainly hope to win a Group or Listed race with Sunday Nectar and perhaps also with Malicia, another threeyear-old filly I train for Prime Equestrian, who

did not get the run of the race when only sixth in a Group 3 at Chantilly in July. I also have high hopes for Pestagua, the half-sister to Sunday Nectar by Lawman who we bought for Є37,000 at the Arqana August last year. The form of her win at Maisons Laffitte has worked out well and she got no sort of a run when third at Chantilly.

Christophe Ferland Christophe Ferland’s stable has been on top form right from the beginning of 2011. Aside from Mont Pelato, the stable’s three-year-olds included Little Storm, who was fourth in the Group 2 Prix Noailles at Longchamp before being sold to Hong Kong, and Tomtit, who won a Tierce handicap at Longchamp. The dual winner Dabirsim was purchased by his owner Simon Springer for Є30,000 from the Haras de Grandcamp at the 2010 Arqana August Sale. He is a son of Hat Trick, a Kentucky-based son of Sunday Silence who won Group 1s over a mile in Japan and in Hong Kong. Age: 35 Based: La Teste, near Bordeaux in the West of France Number of horses currently in yard: 45 First winner: My first winner came at Auch in April 2008 with a horse called Estiross Rhythm who belonged to Javier Martinez Salmean, the owner of Doctor Dino with whom I had worked while I was with Richard Gibson.’ Number of wins in 2010: 26 Number of wins by mid-July 2011: 26 % wins to runs in 2011: 25% – currently in second place behind only Jean-Claude Rouget and ahead of André Fabre, Alain de Royer-Dupré and Frederic Rossi who are all together on 22 per cent. Current ranking by prize-money: 23 Previous experience: Very English as I spent two years with Sir Mark Prescott in Newmarket and then eight years with Richard Gibson in Chantilly. Best moment on a racecourse: There are two which stand out immediately: my first win in a Tierce handicap with Bord A Bord on May 1, 2009 and then on July 14, 2008 when Belle Jeanne finished third in the Listed Prix Roland de Chambure at Longchamp beaten by Elusive Wave. Worst moment on a racecourse: I forget the bad days very quickly, but if I have to come up with one it would be the day at Cagnes this February when Mont Pelato finished only ninth in the Listed Prix Policeman having been sent off favourite; I was expecting a big performance. He had won his first two starts impressively but at Cagnes he went off in front far too fast and faded quickly in the straight. He has just come back into the yard after a break and should be running again soon. Hopes for the remainder of 2011: I do think that Dabirsim is one of the best two-year-olds in France. He won his first start by 10l and his second very easily and was entered in the Group 2 Prix Robert Papin and the Group 3 Prix de Cabourg in Deauville and I expect we will go straight to Deauville.

The son of Chichicastenango finished second on seven of his first nine starts, but through this frustrating

sequence finished runner-up to horses such as Recital, Pour Moi and Reliable Man winning nearly Є800,000 in prize-money and premiums. Age: 36 Based: Chantilly Number of horses currently in yard: 35 First winner: Our first winner after moving to France came with the appropriately named Parfaite who won in Deauville on January 7, 2009.

Number of wins in 2010: 13 Number of wins by mid-July 2011: 8 % of wins to runs: 11% Current ranking by prize-money: 16 Previous experience: I am currently assisting my father Giuseppe and will take over the licence in my own name this autumn. Before coming to France I had worked with my father in Milan, and then with horses in England and Ireland as well as spending four months with Bill Mott in the US. I have a cousin Marco, who is training in Newmarket, another cousin and my brother both train in Pisa and then my father and uncle train in Milan. There are a lot of trainers called Botti! Best moment on a racecourse: Probably when I thought that Bubble Chic was going to win the Prix du Jockey-Club. But it was for only a moment as no sooner had I imagined it then I saw Gerard Mosse bring Reliable Man off the rails and I realised that we were going to be second instead! Bubble Chic is a wonderful horse who keeps improving. He is very good mentally and is a sweet horse at home. I think he will do better if we succeed in holding him up and coming with a late run ourselves. I bought him as a two-year-old at the Arqana February Sale as I was looking for a son of Chichicastenango and liked the fact that his dam is by Grand Lodge. His owner Francesco Tabone decided to bid up to Є30,000, that was what we felt we could win with him if he was up to running in claimers. In the end he told me to go on and we bought him for Є33,000. After the Jockey-Club he had earned nearly Є800,000 and so sometimes you just have to be lucky! Monsieur Tabone has been the perfect owner and all along has told me to do whatever I felt was right for the horse. Another big moment was when my father won the Derby Italiano in 2007 with Awelmarduk. Worst moment on a racecourse: You try to forget them but the day Ramonti didn’t win the Derby Italiano was a difficult day. We had not really considered that he might not win and then he was beaten only a head. Hopes for the remainder of 2011: To win a big race with Bubble Chic, probably over 1m4f and when coming from behind rather than setting out with the leaders. I have also bought back Orife, a half-brother to Equiano who I love as he won four races for me before going to Dubai. He is not a top horse, but should be up to winning stakes races, and then I have some two-year-olds who look as if they could be okay, including Rue De Rivoli, a Medicean colt we bought for Є90,000 in Deauville last August from the Haras du Mézeray.

Top consignors: Anna and xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Etienne Drion of the Coulonces Consignment

O

ne, perhaps unexpected, effect of the valuable French premium scheme had been to encourage foreign nationals to move to France to either train or produce their horses. They know that not only can they make the business remain solvent if based in France, they can actually make some money too. But Etienne and Anna Drion had more reasons than most to decide to locate their consigning operation in Normandy – Irish-born Etienne has strong links with the country as his late father Ghislain Drion was the former manager of the Aga Khan’s studs and as child spent many summers in the country, while Anna’s family moved to France from Sweden nearly ten years ago. Operating as Team Hogdala, the Sundstrom family settled at Haras du Coulonces in Normandy and within just four years struck gold – breeding, producing and selling for €100,000 the Prix du Jockey-Club winner and now young French-based stallion, Le Havre. Anna and Etienne married in 2009 and set out at their own place in 2010 – their new farm is just about ten minutes from a second farm owned by Anna’s parents, Jan and Maja, and while the two businesses are individual entities, a helping hand can be offered by either side as required. “We consign yearlings for Jan and Maja and help out if someone is away, but our businesses are totally separate,” explains Drion. “When we set up it was important to

This is our life, it is our passion. We work hard and really believe that any success we have had comes from that hard work and personal touch

Anna to retain the continuity with Coulonces – she had worked hard on the farm and was known by the bloodstock world as ‘from Coulonces’. Adding the word ‘Consignment’ helps to set us apart from the farm, while also giving English and Irish buyers a word to identify with – it helps a bit at the sales.” The couple run a very hands-on operation and take great pride in producing horses to their very best. As Anna says: “This is our life, it is our passion. We work hard and really believe that any success we have had comes from that hard work and personal touch. “We want to keep the numbers to a level so that we can maintain the quality of our consignments, as well as keep our own involvement with each individual.” This year sees the Coulonces Consignment offering 21 yearlings at the August sale, with another 10 or so planned for the October sale. The yearlings are a mix of home-breds – the Drions are slowly building up a broodmare band of their own, have around five mares now and are aiming to have around ten or 12 well-bred mares – but are mainly those belonging to clients, who both board mares full time on the farm, and send yearlings to the Drions for consigning. “We don’t want to overstock the farm, we want to keep the paddocks fresh,” smiles Drion. “The August sale really is the bonus and much is focused around that, but as we

have the boarding mares, at least if we have a disastrous sale, while we won’t be drinking champagne, we won’t be out on the street either!” The chances of having a poor sale, if judging by past performance, has to be fairly slim. In Anna’s first year selling with her parents in 2006, despite offering only two yearlings, a filly by Xaar bought by David Redvers fetched €100,000. She was called Kay Es Jay and went on to become stakes placed in England. The following year the family sold four yearlings, one of which was Le Havre. Since 2009 and selling under the

Coulonces Consignment banner, 11 and then 17 yearlings have been catalogued. The consignment has been a top ten leading consignor in both 2009 and 2010, last year finishing in the top six behind established studs which have been selling at Deauville for years. The top price achieved so far by the Drions has been €500,000, which was given for Scarlet And Gold, a half-sister to Le Havre, while they have had 15 horses sell for over €100,000. And racecourse success has followed too, the consignment having sold graduates such as Prix Des Reservoirs (G3) third Nova Step, the Listed winner and Group 3 Prix La Rochette runner-up Hung Parliament, and this summer’s Chantilly three-year-old Listed winner Tucuman, a colt by Hawk Wing. “The Arqana team has been very good to us, they have been very helpful,” admits Drion. “The marketing of the sales paradise concept has worked well, the web site is good and the new sales complex looks great. “I am very happy they have moved the sale back in date from last year, but, personally, I would have preferred if the sale had been kept to a weekend.” A proximity to Deauville was one of the reasons why the newly married pair chose to purchase their pretty yet practical 65-hectare farm. “We are an hour from Deauville, close to stallion farms and ‘on the circuit’ – if an agent is travelling to look at yearlings we are not too far from Capucines and Mezeray,” says Drion. “We had a tight budget and originally started looking at old established stud farms, but they were too expensive and very impractical. “We wanted something we could build the way we wanted, and design the paddocks as we wished. We found here, have built an American barn and have been able to set up both winter and summer paddocks as we have two streams running through the property.” Drion had not originally planned on settling in France, America probably claiming the first tug of his heart having spent much time in the country first with Coolmore, then with trainer Christophe Clement, four and a half years with Narvick International and finally with Vinery Florida. The lack of possession of a green card was perhaps the deciding element leading the Irishman to seek his fortune elsewhere. “America really is the land of opportunity,” he reminisces, “but without a green card you are shackled to your employer. You need to be in the country for five years before you can

get one and then every time you change jobs, you have to start afresh. I decided to move to France, rented a small farm and a very kind American lady sent me two mares via Emmanuel de Seoux.” In the early days, Drion was prepared to turn up at the sales with an empty trailer just in the hope of picking up a filly for a client, but he has nurtured his international connections well and now the couple can boast of clients from the US, Australia, Ireland, Italy, Germany, England and Sweden. Now well away from that early start, the good levels of prize-money and French premiums are certainly helping to send clients the Drions’ way. “More and more breeders are realising the benefits of producing a horse qualified for French premiums; sending a mare over to foal and getting her back and leaving the youngster here,” explains Drion. “But, also, more are keen to keep them here to race – the prize-money is so good and, if you add on the owners and breeders’ premiums, a race win can be worth a lot of money. “A maiden race at a provincial track can be softer than a similar race in Britain, but you can still be walking away with €15,000 in prize-money. “And, if you have a good horse such as Le Havre, well he won €1,004,000 in prizemoney, €635,000 in owners’ premiums and €230,000 in breeders’ premiums, in all over €1.8 million! Vivez la France!” However, the couple do believe that there is some room for improvement with the premium scheme feeling that, at present, it is causing mare owners to be reluctant to invest in new stock as they may have a mare earning a lot of money with a lesser type or an older individual.

“It has led to some stagnation in the mare market and there should be some tweaking to give greater rewards to younger, up-andcoming progressive individuals,” explains Drion. Without a language barrier, the Drions can purposefully court international mare and yearling owners. “I do think that clients do like someone who is able to speak English in order to discuss the horses,” he adds. “It is very difficult for clients ringing in the evening or on email if you don’t have the same language.” There are plans to consign at Tattersalls in the future, but not until the farm has “six or seven good types” suitable for Book 1 of the October. However, the couple are more than happy with this year’s draft for the Arqana August sale, which includes a King’s Best half-sister to Beverly D Stakes (G1) winner Eclair De Lune; a filly from the first crop of Henrythenavigator and out of the Group 3 runner-up Leopoldine; a Peintre Celebre half-sister to the multiple Group winner Boris De Deauville; a grand-daughter of the French champion juvenile filly Miss Tahiti by Galileo; a colt by Shamadal out of Nipping, winner of the Group 3 Prix du Petit Couvert and a Proud Citizen colt from the family of Prix du Jockey-Club winner Hernando and Prix Lupin (G1) winner and Breeders’ Cup Mile (G1) runner-up Johann Quatz. You can be sure that the Drions, with their passion for the horse, their understanding of the international bloodstock industry and their willingness to work hard to achieve results, will ensure that this August will prove once again to be a successful and profitable month for the Coulonces Consignment and its clients.

The new kids on the block, Lucie Lamotte and Gwénaël Monneraye of La Motteraye

L

a Motteraye is owned, run and managed by Lucie Lamotte and Gwénaël Monneraye, a partnership which started five years ago in County Kildare and which has been based in Normandy since December 2009. “We met five years ago when we were both working for James Egan at Corduff Stud in County Kildare,” Monneraye explains. “We decided to form a partnership then and we always had in our mind the idea that we should set up our own consigning business in 2010. It was not easy to find a place to rent Walking: many hours are spent pounding the turf by the Le Motteraye team through the yearling preparation months


two young French consignors

Gwénaël Monneraye and Lucie Lamotte: moved to Normandy when they spotted a good opportunity to set up a consignment operation

in Normandy but we took on La Motteraye at the end of 2009 and presented our first draft at last year’s August sale in Deauville.” The Haras de la Motteraye is in deepest Normandy, not far from Trun and close to the Haras de Coulonces and the Haras de la Cauvinière, two of the other prominent new farms in the area. Beforehand it was a small breeding operation best known for having raised Young Tiger. Young Tiger is something of a star in France where he has won or placed in all of his 30 races to date spread over eight seasons. Young Tiger has won ten Listed races so far and about €650,000 in prize-money and premiums. For the time being La Motteraye is a handson operation as there is only one full-time employee to help Lamotte and Monneraye prepare the yearlings for sale. There will be 11 yearlings in August and they have decided to limit their draft for the October yearling sale in Deauville to 15. “Our profit at the end of year depends upon the commission we receive from the sales,” Monneraye says, “and then we are very motivated to do our best and have the determination of newcomers focused to make a place for ourselves in the business. We are both very happy to look after the horses on a daily basis, and Lucie is one with the eye for every detail.” They take in mares to board during the covering season and have been helped in this

respect by Sylvain Vidal, who stands Le Havre and Air Chief Marshall at La Cauvinière. “We believe that there is an opportunity in France and we wanted to set up a true consigning business like an Irish or American one,” adds Monneraye, “and so decided we would not take year-round boarding mares so that we can concentrate on sales preparation.” Monneraye has always been determined

to work with thoroughbreds, in fact this desire is so deep seated that he has trouble remembering how it took root in him in the first place. “My father was a farmer in Brittany,” he says, “and my parents used to take me racing at Questembert which is a very small racecourse near to where we lived, so small that I certainly don’t have time to go there these days!

two young French consignors “Every year at school they used to ask us what we wanted to do when we grew up and I remember that I said I wanted to work with thoroughbreds and the lady posing the questions was taken aback. She told me that I was the only boy she knew who had given the same reply every year the whole way through.” On leaving school Monneraye found his first job at the Haras du Mézeray and from there and the contacts he made he spent the next ten years travelling and preparing yearlings. “While I was at Le Mézeray I met Peter Kavanagh and so I went to Ireland and then began working with James Egan at Corduff. “I spent one year working with the yearlings at the Haras d’Etreham and then went every winter to New Zealand to work at Windsor Park Stud. “James has been a big influence on both of us and has helped us set up and sent us a yearling to prepare for our first August draft.” The pair did initially consider starting their business in Ireland or in England but decided to come back home. “We are both French and we love being here,” he says. “I have probably worked more sales in Newmarket than in Deauville, but with the money in French racing it is here where we felt the opportunity lies. I hope, nevertheless, that we shall start consigning a draft in Newmarket and elsewhere in the future.” This year’s August draft shows the extent of their international contacts with yearlings coming from England, Ireland and Germany as well as France. There are two, a Mr. Greeley filly out of Exhibit One and a Medicean colt out of Shebelia who were purchased as foals at Newmarket by a partnership between Tweenhills and Rathmore. The draft also includes a Galileo filly who is a sister to the promising Aidan O’Brien trained three-year-old Marksmanship and a Rock Of Gibraltar colt from the family of St Nicholas Abbey. Last year the first La Motteraye consignment featured two colts who were sold for €100,000, including a son of Dylan Thomas called Black Minstrel who is in training with Amanda Perrett. La Motteraye consigned the top lot at this year’s Arqana February sale at Saint-Cloud, a five-year-old barren mare Blowaway who made €67,000. Lamotte and Monneraye will be hoping, and expecting, to exceed these figures in August and make another step towards establishing themselves as major French-based consignors.

The rising star

Liz Price meets Derby-winning jockey Mickaël Barzalona

Photography by Trevor Jones

ickaël Barzalona was not the slightest bit surprised that Pour Moi outclassed his rivals to lift the Investec Derby. But he is finding it harder to get his head around the sudden celebrity status that comes with winning Britain’s most famous Flat race. He is aged only 19, which makes him the youngest Derby-winning jockey since Walter Swinburn in 1981, and he is slightly embarrassed when people stop him to ask for his autograph or even just to shake his hand. The fact that his grasp of the English language is still limited doesn’t make it any easier. Public recognition and the accompanying adulation is not something he is used to in his native France, where only footballers are considered stars and jockeys live their lives very much under the public radar. He got the giggles during Royal Ascot when staff in the restaurant of his hotel recognise him and promptly offer him a free meal. “Can you believe it?” he laughs embarrassed. “When I went to pay for my dinner they said I had won the Derby and I didn’t have to pay.” He shakes his head in wonder, marvelling at how passionate the British are about racing.

Yet passion is something that he understands only too well, as he himself could not imagine life without horses. As a youngster growing up in Maillane, a little village close to Avignon where his family still lives today, he spent his time riding the traditional white Camargue horses. “I think I was about eight or nine when I got my first pony,” he explains while simultaneously grasping for his phone which is loaded with photos of a white horse. “Here,” he indicates proudly. “That is Isatis, my pony.” Although he will be forever associated with Pour Moi, it is clearly this Camargue mare that is his first love. “We have always had horses in the Carmargue. It is a tradition,” he continues. “We use the horses to shift the bulls from one pen to another, but I used Isatis to play horse-ball.” Horse-ball is a direct heir to the Argentine sport of Pato, which became popular in France in the 1970s when it was used as a way to get children interested in equine activities. “There are four players and you have to try and score goals,” he explains eagerly. “It’s like basketball. It even has similar rules. You have to make a minimum of three passes between three players and then score through a kind of a hoop. It’s a really cool game.” And he adds proudly: “My team was Champion France Elite [national champions] three times.” His years spent catching a ball whilst galloping down the playing field and reaching high to score a goal might just help to explain the ease with which he stood up in his stirrups as he crossed the finish-line in the Investec Derby. Or, as some might argue, before he crossed the finish-line. He squirms a little, laughs, and explains: “I really didn’t think! It was just something that happened. I have never done it before and I think it was just instinctive. There’d been so much hard work that had gone into the preparation for the race and we’d coped with all the pressure and come through, maybe it was a release.” It is difficult to be critical in the face of pure joy at winning Britain’s piece de résistance. And he is genuinely shocked at the mere suggestion that his gesture when passing the winning post could be interpreted as anything but the youthful reaction to all the tension he had to endure during the build-up to the race. It is interesting, though, to hear him talk about pressure, as it is not a word he uses readily. In fact, amongst his colleagues in the weighing room, he is rather known for being

incredibly laid back. Nothing fazes him and it is without doubt the ability to stay calm under pressure that has turned him into one of Europe’s most promising young jockeys. He repeats: “As I said, it was just instinctive. I had never done it before. But I knew I had passed those horses, I knew I had won.” Though he does admit: “You know even in France there were people who said that I scared them when I stood up, but everyone was really happy. It had been 35 years since a French-trained horse has won the Derby and I think everyone in France was just proud and happy. And I was happy as it was also a first victory for Monsieur Fabre.”

A

ndré Fabre has acted as Barzalona’s mentor since the boy left the south of France for Paris. It was Barzalona’s grandfather though, a trainer in Corsica, who first introduced the young man to race horses. Seeing that he was a little bit too small and a little bit too light to pursue a career in rugby, the young man’s other passion, he was quickly enlisted at the apprentice school for jockeys. “I still like rugby,” he says. “I played a lot when I was younger and I was quite fast, which was great, but then I just couldn’t keep up with the bigger boys anymore. My brother still plays and always keeps me informed about everything that goes on in the rugby world. I don’t really have time for anything but racing as I also ride out every morning. I don’t go out in the evening.” While talking he subconsciously rubs an arm that sports a big plaster and laughs as he explains: “I like doing a bit of DIY when I

come home from the races and I was working on something in my garden the other day when I got this little injury. Actually, I enjoy doing all sorts of things in the house.” As a protégé of Fabre, Barzalona quickly became accustomed to riding good horses and for the last couple of years he had been steadily making a name for himself. In fact, at the tender age of 18 he had already signed a contract with the Wertheimer brothers as their second jockey.

I’m just a jockey and there are so many things that I still need to learn. I would like to be champion jockey one day and there are so many races to win

However, the Wertheimer brothers were not the only ones who recognised this early talent and last winter Godolphin gave him the opportunity to excel at the Dubai Carnival. It is there that he came to attention of British racing when he rode an astonishing eight winners, including winning the UAE 2000 Guineas and Oaks and culminating with triumph in the UAE Derby on World Cup night. “I don’t think I have any special talents,” he says. “I am just fortunate enough that I

ride some really good horses.” Those who don’t know him might think that Barzalona has been taking lessons in modesty, but those who are close to him will tell you that he really doesn’t consider himself particularly talented or special. “I’m just a jockey and there are so many things that I still need to learn,” he confirms. “I would like to be champion jockey one day and there are so many races to win.” One race that he dreams about winning is the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe. “Yes,” he says, his eyes lighting up. “I would love to win the Arc with Pour Moi.” And why not? After all, the young man won the Derby on his first ride in the race, so why not the Arc? Basrza, as he is affectionately known by his friends and colleagues, is living a jockey’s dream and with the continuous support of his mentor Fabré, there is no reason why the dream shouldn’t go on for a long, long time.

three french stallions

Slickly does it

The Darley sire is one of three French stallions who are more than capable of getting decent winners and deserve plenty of opportunities, but who have struggled to make their marks in the commercial bloodstock market

I

F you had asked a bookmaker for a price about Slickly being the sire of the best three-year-old in Europe in 2011, the answer would probably have been who? And if you had found a bookmaker who knew who Slickly was, the answer would probably have been 1,000/1 or higher. And yet there must be at the very least a possibility that the Rothschild family’s Meandre is the best of a good generation of three-year-olds after his brilliant and easy victory in the Grand Prix de Paris (G1) defeating those horses that had finished first and second in the Irish Derby and the Prix du Jockey-Club, as well as the runner-up in the Derby at Epsom. The result would have appeared extraordinary if Meandre was not trained by André Fabre whose stature and whose

Slickly at Haras du Logis: he has all the credentials to be a top sire

remarkable success in 2011 meant that the Rothschild family’s colt started third favourite behind the two Derby winners. Slickly had all the credentials of a top sire when he retired to the Haras du Logis in 2003 and has had a consistent record of success from the moment his progeny started to race, and yet he has never been a fashionable sire. From his first six crops, fewer than 20 Slicklys have been selected for the August Sale, and having started out at a fee of Є8,000 this fell to Є7,000 in 2009. Slickly has had the career at stud which his sire Linamix would have had without the support of Jean-Luc Lagardère. Although the Darley sire has had about 45 foals in each of his first five crops, aside from Jean-Claude Séroul and Guy de Rothschild, few if any breeders have been prepared to send him high-class mares.

Slickly was probably the best son of his outstanding sire Linamix – Cherry Mix and Sagamix may have been given slightly higher ratings as a result of their performances in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe but Slickly was a top horse at two and three for Fabre, and then at five for Godolphin. A Group winner at two, Slickly was Fabre’s principal Jockey-Club horse in 1999. After an easy victory in the Group 2 Prix Noailles, Lagardère’s colt started a short-priced second favourite behind Montjeu but after getting very stirred up in the paddock failed to show his form and could only finish fourth. Three weeks later Slickly bounced back to form to win the 1m2f Group 1 Grand Prix de Paris easily and then confirmed his class by finishing second to Dubai Millennium in the Prix Jacques le Marois (G1) in August, with Dansili behind him in third.

three french stallions

By the time Slickly began his stallion career his chief exploits were distant memories in racing terms, while his breeder Lagardère was no longer around to support a son of Linamix

86

www.internationalthoroughbred.net

of his three-year-old career Slickly was sold to Godolphin, but failed to show his form in Group 1 races at four. At five, after running poorly in Dubai, he came right back to his best and won Group 1 races on his last three career starts, notably when defeating Banks Hill by 3l to win the Prix du Moulin (G1) at Longchamp. Slickly is bred on the Linamix-Mr. Prospector cross which served Lagardère so well and his dam, the Conquistador Cielo mare Slipstream Queen, produced five other black-type horses, including the dam of the French juvenile champion Siyouni. Slickly retired to stud too late. At six he ran once in Italy in October and by the time Slickly began his stallion career his chief exploits were distant memories in racing terms, while his breeder Lagardère was no longer around to support a son of Linamix. And then in any event it is very difficult for a stallion in France to attract high-class mares. But Slickly has been among the top ten sires in France every year since his first crop turned four and is currently in third place behind only Dalakhani and Galileo. The best horse in Slickly’s first crop was the multiple Group-winning miler Gris De Gris, bred by Séroul, who has always supported the sire and who has three stakes-performing three-year-olds by him this year in Splendido, Carnevalo and Mariage Tardif. The best horse from Slickly’s second crop was the Guy de Rothschild homebred Gris Tendre, a multiple stakes winner. After the Grand Prix de Paris, Edouard de Rothschild explained that the last mating his late father had decided upon was to send Penne, a stakes-placed sister to the dam of Gris Tendre, to Slickly, a mating which produced Meandre. Meandre is unusual among Slickly’s progeny in staying 1m4f as the majority of his stock tend to be milers or 1m2f horses. Penne, Meandre’s dam, was fourth in Group 3s over 1m4f and comes from a Classic family developed by Marcel Boussac. Meandre’s fifth

dam is Apollonia, the winner of five Group 1s in the 1950s: the Prix Morny, the Grand Criterium, the Poule d’Essai des Pouliches and the Prix de Diane. Slickly’s current crops of two-year-olds and yearlings are his biggest to date with 67 and 62 and so he is likely to keep his place among the leading stallions in France and may yet, at the age of 16, start to attract some of the better mares based in France.

A commercial struggle for American

Slickly was not the only French stallion to shine at Longchamp’s July evening meeting on France’s National Holiday as the Haras d’Etreham’s American Post is the sire of American Devil, an unbeaten two-year-old and the most impressive winner of the Listed Prix Roland de Chambure. American Post retired to Etreham in 2005 at a fee of €7,000 and this dropped to €5,000 for 2010. Like Slickly, American Post has been a consistently successful sire from the moment his runners appeared, but he too has struggled to attract support or commercial recognition. American Post was trained by Criquette Head for Prince Khalid Abdullah. After being beaten a short head on his debut in Deauville, the son of Bering won his next six starts which included the Group 1 Grand Criterium, the Group 1 Racing Post Trophy and the Group 1 Poule d’Essai des Poulains. He very clearly failed to stay when only sixth in North Light’s Derby and ran only once subsequently. Nevertheless one would have thought he had achieved enough to be an attractive proposition at only €7,000, but few people took up this opportunity and his first three crops combined numbered only 116 foals, less than a popular Irish-based sire will have in one crop. Bering’s best son Pennekamp was a most disappointing stallion. However, American Post does not resemble Bering physically, not in colour as he is a dark bay, nor in size as he

American Post: is getting stock who are precocious and are best over a mile, despite the fact that his own dam was a stayer and his sire a middle-distance horse

is much smaller than his sire. Indeed, if American Post is clearly an excellent stallion quite where his successful genes come from is hard to say. His dam Wells Fargo is an unraced Sadler’s Wells mare and a half-sister to a St Leger-placed filly, yet American Post’s best progeny are, as he was, two-year-olds and milers rather than middle-distance horses. Furthermore, American Post does not seem to have reproduced the aptitudes of either his sire, who was a middle-distance horse, nor of his female family, the best of whom are also


three french stallions stayers, but now that his progeny are running where exactly their quality comes from is far less important than the fact that they are winning good races. From the 116 foals in American Post’s first three crops there were 12 stakes performers, headed by the disqualified Classic winner Liliside. His current crop of three-year-olds has only 30 members and yet it includes the dual stakes winner Private Eye, the English Listed winner Lily Again and the promising stakes performers Lustre and Lady Meydan. Perhaps American Devil will be the horse who puts his sire on the commercial map, but to a large degree he has already outrun his pedigree. His dam, the Selkirk mare Alcestes Selection, was bought out of a claimer and won her only race at Divonne achieving a rating of 63. She is a daughter of Attire who was second in the Oaks d’Italia but who was not a successful mare. American Devil won by 6l at Chantilly on his debut and showed a great turn of foot to come from behind and beat Aesop’s Fables, a son of Distorted Humour who is trained by Fabre.

Sinndar: was well-supported on his initial move to France, but has only 26 juveniles this year

The market seems to be unable to accept that its initial judgements on these three stallions were incorrect. In this respect the market in the US and Japan, for instance, adapts far more quickly

The third French-based stallion to feature at Longchamp was the Haras de Bonneval’s Sinndar. He was represented by the Listed Prix de Thiberville winner Shareta who returned to her best for an easy victory and who will surely be running back in Group races in the future. Sinndar is, of course, a different case altogether to Slickly and American Post as his stud career began at the Aga Khan’s Irish stud and he only moved to France in 2006. Sinndar stood at €20,000 for his first three years in France, but this had dropped to €9,500 for the 2011 season. He was well supported during those first two years and the son of Grand Lodge has 60 French-bred four-year-olds and 54 three-

Sinndar: has his time come at last?

year-olds, but the support subsequently fell away and he has only 26 two-year-olds for this year. Yet the first two French crops have been very successful producing the Group 1 winner Rosanara, the English Group winner Gertrude Bell, the disqualified Group winner Valasyra, as well as a string of more than useful stakes horses and high-class handicappers such as Norashman, Kalabaya, Vertana, Kazlian, Sinndarina, Darwind, Litigant and Katsya. Several of these were bred by the Aga Khan, but then the best mares Sinndar covers are more often than not those his own breeder sends. If these three stallions share anything more in common, aside from being underated

and standing in France, it is that perhaps all three do not have the attributes breeders are looking for in commercial stallions based in Europe. Slickly is by Linamix and his progeny are often thought to be “light”, as, of course, were Linamix’s throughout his career; American Post is by Bering and tends to produce horses who are smaller than the average successful sales yearling, while Sinndar is by Grand Lodge out of a Lashkari mare, which was always going to be a huge obstacle to overcome. The surprising thing is that the market seems to be unable to accept that its initial judgements on these three stallions were incorrect. In this respect the market in the US and Japan, for instance, adapts far more quickly. Once a stallion has success, breeders and yearling buyers in both countries forget very quickly whether their progeny were and are deemed to be too big, too small, too crooked or are by the wrong stallion; if they run they want them. In Europe, by the time the market is proved wrong, it is nearly always too late and the commercial market has already focused itself upon the new and the next first-season sire sensation.

Mare of the month

A

filly bred in Ireland out of an unraced mare from a pedigree without any Grade 1 form and lacking any winning juvenile black-type of her own may at first glance be an unlikely sort to gain Grade 1 form at three, but Cambina threw the form book out and achieved just that high level distinction in July. She had to share in her success though, dead-heating in the American Oaks (G1) with the US-bred filly Nereid, a daughter of the dirt runner Rock Hard Ten and out of the Belong To Me mare Dowry. Cambina’s dam Await can now claim to be a producer of the highest order, and despite this coming on the turf in the US, a division lacking in substance and seemingly on a disappointing curve, that form is now firmly in the pedigree book for the daughter of Peintre Celebre. Beautifully for Await’s owners, Carradale Ltd, Cambina is her dam’s first foal. Await was bred by Mrs J. Magnier, T. Stack and Wendy Cousins and was bought in 2004 by Frank Barry from Churchtown House Stud as a Goffs November foal for €40,000. She failed to make it to the racecourse and her next published reference did not come until her first foal, her daughter Cambina, was catalogued and then withdrawn by Churchtown House Stud from the Goffs November Foal Sale in 2008. Sent into training with Tommy Stack, Cambina’s first run came as a June juvenile at The Curragh where she finished 11th of 19 in an EBF maiden, noted to be “getting things together over the final furlong.” In fact, Cambina learnt so much in that final furlong that she successfully put the experience to good use on her next start when winning a mile maiden by a length at Killarney in July for owner Mrs John Magnier. A rear on leaving the stalls at Galway ruined any chance of an immediate follow up success in a nursery, but the filly righted that mistake next time out with a good staying performance to win back at Killarney in August. That performance encouraged connections to try for a spot of black-type in the Flame Of Tara Listed Stakes and the gamble nearly worked – the filly was only beaten by one horse, the newcomer Chrysanthemum, a filly by Danehill Dancer, ironically bred by a Coolmore’s bloodstock arm Pegasus Breeding, trained by Mrs Magnier’s son-in-law David

mare of the month

Await (Peintre Celebre-Starring Role (Glenstal))

Cambina: a first foal out of Await, is now a Grade 1 winner in the states

Wachman and owned by her husband’s business partner Michael Tabor. In fact, the race has turned out to have been one of the markers of the year as the winner has gone on to finish third in the Pretty Polly Stakes (G1) behind Misty For Me; Peahen, the fourth, is now a Group 2 runner-up; Gemstone, who finished sixth, was a runner-up in the Grade 3 Lodge Park Stud Stakes, while the fifth home, Banimpire, has since won the Ribblesdale Stakes (G2) and finished second in the Irish Oaks to Blue Bunting. Even the last home in the Flame Of Tara, Spin, now has Group race form to her name when second to Banimpire in the EBF Blue Wind Stakes (G3) at Navan in May. Cambina’s future, as we have seen, was to lie overseas and despite her performance in that well-regarded Listed race (or perhaps because of it), the Magnier connections cashed in through a private sale (the filly was withdrawn from the Tattersalls Horses in Training Sale) and Cambina reappeared in February in the new ownership entity of Anthony Bilich, Jason Cline, George Schmitt and others under the training eye of Jeff Bonde. The tough filly made her stateside debut

a winning one when winning the Grade 3 La Habra Stakes run on turf and over just six and a half furlongs. Stepping back up to a more favoured 1m1f and the Grade 2 Providencia Stakes in April resulted in a second success, though Cambina met with defeat the next twice when third in the Senorita Stakes (G3) and then in the Honeymoon Handicap (G2). However, her US purchase (Blandford Bloodstock have run a Racing Post success ad with her wins) proved to be a shrewd one when she claimed her July Grade 1 Oaks victory, albeit that the winner’s podium was shared with Eric Kronfeld, owner of Nereid. The filly seems perfectly suited to the racing conditions in the US – all her stateside outings have been on firm ground, while even the majority of her Irish runs came on a faster surface. It was not surprising that she was selected as one for a US campaign, particularly if bearing in mind that her sire Hawk Wing, who now stands in Korea, is a son of the Ashford Stud stallion Woodman, who in turn, is a son of Mr. Prospector. Hawk Wing’s dam was a leading performer in Canada, while his halfsister Alexandrina was a smart US runner. On Await’s female side, her unraced dam Starring Role (Glenstal) is the dam of Lightning Hit (Orpen), who won three races at Listed level in the US, and Blasket Island (Kenmare) who finished third in the Prix Daphnis (G3). Under the third dam is the King George Stakes (G3) winner Title Roll, Regime, winner of the Classic Trial (G3) and the Mooresbridge Stakes (G3), the National Stakes (L) victor and Cherry Hinton (G2) and Queen Mary Stakes (G2) runner-up Salut D’Armour, Listed winner Northern Express and the Norfolk Stakes (G3) third Lord Merlin. At the bottom of the page is Jacqueline Quest, who was demoted from 1,000 Guineas victory last season. Await has a yearling colt by Antonius Pius and a Strategic Prince two-year-old in training with Ger Lyons. He has been through the sales ring twice – as a foal when bought by Ger Hourigan for €13,500 at the Goffs November Sale (seemingly a regular venue for members of this family), and then as a yearling when he fetched £30,000 at the DBS Premier Sale and was bought by BBA Ireland. According to Lyons he has done nothing but grow, has been gelding and is currently in the field and probably won’t be running this year.

Gina Rarick: the American trainer in Maisons-Laffitte, France What is your racing background?

I did not come from a racing family, but was always a fan watching the American Triple Crown races and then going to Arlington Park. I did not consider a career involving racing until I was well over 30 and after I had started working in France. I am actually a journalist by training, and moved to France in 1994 to work with the International Herald Tribune. I had just started riding lessons before I moved, so I was keen to continue. After about three years here, we bought a house and made it more permanent, and just by chance we ended up in Maisons-Laffitte across the street from a racing yard. We moved here essentially for the country environment so close to Paris yet convenient to the office, and for the riding opportunities for me. But as soon as I found out about the racing I was immediately hooked, and once I rode my first thoroughbred there was no going back!

Do you train under both codes?

I took out a permit in 2001; in France, there is no separate licence for jumping and Flat racing, so I could train in either discipline. A “permit” allows an amateur trainer to race up to five horses, owned or leased by the permit holder only. A public licence allows you to train for owners with unlimited numbers of horses. I started with a permit just to have some fun. At the same time, I started covering racing for the paper, which allowed me to travel to Dubai, Hong Kong, England, Ireland, Germany and the US. I used that as a great opportunity to learn, and I spent a lot of time in the stables and talking to trainers. It was great schooling for me, and it allowed me to form my own opinions about how I wanted to train. Racing became more and more attractive to me, and as I had some owners who were willing to give me horses to get started, I changed my licence from a permit to a public one in 2008, when I decided to leave the newspaper business and train full time. I did have runners over jumps, but now I train exclusively on the Flat. I decided jump racing wasn’t really for me.

How much did you have to adapt your ideas to suit training in France?

Well, I essentially learned everything in France, so there wasn’t much adaptation to do. I do know I am very opposed to the US style of training, but I also think it is important to keep an open mind. Having the chance to travel to various countries for racing really instilled that there is no absolute right way to do anything. You always have to keep your eyes open and see what other trainers are doing – for better or worse.

What are the benefits of training in France?

The primary benefit to training in France is obviously the prize-money, which is the highest in Europe. Plus, French-bred horses are eligible for very lucrative premiums, which really add up.

I wouldn’t say that there is less business pressure here, though, because while our fixed costs (hay, grain, stabling) are probably comparable to Britain, our labour costs are dramatically higher because of the social charges. That is probably the biggest drawback to training in France. Another downside is the lack of “atmosphere” at major tracks here. While the betting handle is good and rising (which keeps the purse money high), track attendance and the racing experience overall is very poor. Most people bet on their television screens or on the internet, and nobody comes racing, except on the major race days. For owners, though, the race-day experience is getting slightly better, with owners’ lounges and the like. And then there’s that prize-money. Another thing to note is that there is a very wide choice of entries available, so it is possible to win and place with lower-quality horses if you place them in the right races.

How easy was it to get established?

The most difficult thing is probably the endless amount of paperwork and bureaucracy that clutters the French system. It is very difficult to get established if you don’t already have a licence from somewhere else – you have to come with a three-year-business plan, a list of owners, financial resources of your own and pass a one-month course and examinations to get a licence. After that, you have to deal with the social charges and personnel matters, which are handled by a bloated government division that is almost impossible to deal with.

Where do your owners come from?

My owners are almost exclusively non-French, and many of them are new to racing; they may have thought about owning a horse but never leaped in until they met me, learned about the French system and realised that it is possible to own a horse without having the bank account of Sheikh Mohammed. Some have owned horses before. About half live in France and half live elsewhere. Some have come by word of mouth, and some have found me online. The Racing Post ad didn’t really bear much fruit, but perhaps it did plant the seed of an idea for some people. I think that in England, so many horses are owned by syndicates because it is so expensive that there aren’t too many individual owners left to consider having a horse in France. I think a lot of people don’t realise how affordable it can be. I’m always looking for ways to market my business and get new owners, although I do want to keep my yard limited to about 20 horses, which is where I am now. I like to have a small yard as I really believe in individual attention for horses and owners. But my owners have become friends with each other and really enjoy the whole experience. When I have a horse from my yard racing, everyone is cheering for it, even if it’s not theirs!

How long did it take to become accepted by the other trainers / French racing fraternity?

Other trainers have always probably regarded me as a curiosity more than anything else. Most of them have been pleasant. Basically, I do my job, keep my head down and I found my own owners, so I haven’t taken any of theirs. My horses show up looking good and ready to race, and I’ve had decent results, so I think I’ve earned some respect. Being a female and a foreigner hasn’t been an issue, except with a few jockeys – and they don’t ride for me any more.

Do you own your own stables at Maisons-Laffitte? Why did you choose Maisons-Laffitte to be based?

I lease my yard in Maisons-Laffitte, and it is across the street from my house. Like I said above, the choice was really luck; I got involved in racing after I found out about Maisons-Laffitte. My owners really appreciate how close it is to Paris and how convenient it is to get to.

Give us horse to look out for...

I still have a couple of two-year-olds that haven’t debuted yet, including a Domedriver colt called King Driver. He is a lovely horse, and probably will be better next year at three, but he will run this year, I hope, and he is very exciting. Sotka is probably our top two-year-old at the moment; she finished second in a Listed race at Vichy in July.

What are your hopes for the training business? Will you stay in France indefinitely now?

Despite the paperwork, I can’t imagine training anywhere else. The benefits far outweigh the drawbacks. I have no plans to leave. As for my hopes for the business, I want to keep the yard full, the owners happy and continue to upgrade to better-quality horses.

What would you advise a trainer thinking of doing the same?

Definitely don’t think of moving here unless you speak French or can learn to very quickly. It is hard enough when you speak the language and would be impossible if you didn’t. Choose a location your owners can get to as easy as possible. Do your homework on the programme so you know what kind of horses you need for racing here; the French style of racing is very different to the UK in that horses usually have to settle off the pace and then have a turn of foot to accelerate toward the finish.
