Why on a Saturday? Group 1 fans got their fix through July, writes Paul Haigh, but running top races on a Saturday diminishes their stature

T

hose suffering from G1 withdrawal symptoms after a spectacular Royal Ascot didn’t have long to wait for a fix. Harzand proved at The Curragh that his Derby victory had been no fluke by doing the same to Idaho as he had at Epsom. Minding’s triumph in the Pretty Polly was rather less exciting, more a reminder of her outstanding ability but like her Oaks perhaps even more impressive. Then came the Eclipse, a renewal in which The Gurkha, comprehensive victor of the Poule d’Essai des Pouliches whom many thought unlucky to have been turned over by Galileo Gold in the St James’s Palace, was confidently expected to redeem himself in the midsummer (this adjective is based on the calendar, not the weather then) 1m2f championship. As it turned out the Ballydoyle star, who had perhaps been delivered a little late at Ascot, came to win his race, even hit the front for a stride or two, but was then simply out-battled by Godolphin’s Hawkbill in one of those epic struggles the Sandown hill so often provides. More wanted? It came. The only thing wrong with the July Cup meeting, apart from its renaming as yet another “Festival”, was the fact that some well meaning twit (or nest of twits) had decided to change its days from Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday to Thursday, Friday and Saturday, the theory being that every big meeting must have a Saturday climax. The intention of giving people who work on weekdays the chance to see one of the great races of the season is all very well, but when it means that race has to go up against every other sporting event that has the same aim – in this case a Wimbledon final – it means the dedicated sport fan has to make a choice. People whose lives revolve around racing and very little else seem unable to cope with the idea that some who love the sport deeply might have anything else on their minds. But it is delusional to imagine that all

sports’ fans who love racing necessarily love it more than any other sport. Many of those who’d have loved to see the July Cup live stayed at home with the remote control and flicked back and forth instead of committing themselves to a day out. Many other sporting “floating voters” will have chosen just to give it a miss. The move to Saturday necessarily diminishes the July Cup, just as the move to Saturday – this one’s long gone, of course – necessarily diminishes the Derby. If by any chance fans did miss the July Cup itself because they wanted to see Serena Williams beat up yet another hapless opponent they missed what may have been one of the best sprints ever run in Britain, with the three Group 1 victors from Ascot – Profitable (King’s Stand), Quiet Reflection (Commonwealth Cup), and Twilight Sun (Diamond Jubilee) – confronted by all sorts of other possible star turns, including last year’s champion two-year-old Air Force Blue. In the end (as is not all that often the case actually) it was just as thrilling a race to watch as it had been to anticipate. Approaching the final furlong there were at least a dozen, maybe one or two more, potential winners stretched across the track. Then suddenly one detached himself from the bunch and drew 3l clear almost before the commentator had time to call his name. It was really no great surprise. Limato had started favourite, though not a short-priced one, on the strength of what he’d achieved in previous seasons rather than on his respectable fourth in the mile Lockinge Stakes. He is a fast-ground horse who loves a strong gallop to aim at, and for the first time in a while he got both. But if the fact of his victory wasn’t surprising, the manner of it was. These were very fast horses he was outpacing. It may be unfair to cite one bit of collateral form as his fellow Henry Candy trainee Twilight Sun may not have run to his best at Newmarket. But Twilight Sun beat a leading Hong Kong sprinter, Gold Fun, by a neck at Ascot but was left in the ruck behind his

relatively diminutive stablemate at Newmarket. The theory that Hong Kong sprinting is the best in the world is not under any immediate threat, but at last Europe may have found a sprinter worth sending to take on the Hong Kongers on their own patch in December. Immediately after the race, Candy, who is still ready to believe that if he gets his ground Limato will have no trouble getting a mile, mused about the Sussex Stakes. But to the relief of Limato’s fans, both old and new, it soon became clear to his boss that Europe’s champion sprinter needed a rest rather than an attempt to defeat both Galileo Gold and The Gurkha over a mile on the Sussex Downs. Another of Candy’s thoughts, that the Breeders’ Cup Mile might be a medium term possibility, seems a lot more plausible as the distance is a lot easier to get on a Flat American track and (allegedly) it never rains in southern California. Those of us who hate to see horses who’ve shown brilliance at one distance being asked to deliver the same explosion of speed at the end of a longer race will prefer to see him stick to 6f in accordance with the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” rule. It may be a slightly wimpy attitude, but we don’t want anything to blunt his enormous enthusiasm, because this son of Tagula is a gelding, and if he’s never asked to do anything he doesn’t much like, then we and owner Paul Jacobs could go on enjoying him for as long as we’ve enjoyed, for example, the wonderful Sole Power. Sole Power in the July Cup was contesting his 28th Group 1 since he blew past Starspangledbanner as a

100/1 shot in the 2010 Nunthorpe. Like Limato perhaps Sole Power is very specific about his requirements: he doesn’t win if asked to run further than his preferred 5f, and he doesn’t win on anything but fast ground. But he’s travelled the world and never lost his appetite for competition as he showed when finishing just about 4l behind the latest equine rocket on the day of Limato’s coronation, a living credit to himself and his trainer Edward Lynam. Okay that may be enough Limatolatry for the time being. There were other Group 1s run in the month since Ascot, the most notable perhaps being the Belmont Derby won by Deauville on the same day. Deauville and Jamie Spencer started from the outside gate of 13 and still managed to hold off all comers after charging up to lead. If we wanted to be Europhile in the month of Brexit we might point out that he is one of Aidan O’Brien’s much lesser lights who could finish only 11th of 16 in Harzand’s Derby, and suggest this as a clear illustration of the huge gulf in quality between the best Europeans and the best American Turf horses. That would be bad manners though, and anyway the generalisation only applies to distances over a mile. And, of course, there was the US filly Catch A Glimpse who saw off other members of the Coolmore second team sent over for the Belmont Oaks in a time that was more than a second faster than Deauville’s at 1.59 and change. She should keep us Euros quiet if we’re tempted to crow.

Demand big in Japan

The annual JRHA foal and yearling July Sale was a record-breaker

B

oth sessions of the JRHA Select July Sale became record-breakers, while the whole sale achieved a best-ever aggregate and average. The top price through the yearling session was achieved by the Deep Impact colt out of Eclipse award two-year-old fillies’ champion Awesome Feather (Lot 107), bought by Tetsumi Kurokawa of KT Racing for 260,000,000yen, ($2,484,000 million / £1,800,000). “My racing manager visited Northern Farm several times and picked up this one as the best lot in the catalogue,” said Kurokawa, who runs an investment managing company based at Tokyo. “I saw him at the sale ground on Sunday, and found he is very nice individual. I am very happy to get such nice young talented horse, although the price is more than I expected! “It is my dream to win the Japanese Derby with this colt.” He is the second foal out of Awesome Feather, a dual Grade 1 winner purchased by Katsumi Yoshida of Northern Farm for $1,900,000 at the Fasig-Tipton November Sale. In total, 247 yearlings went through the ring with 217 of them selling for 8,130,600,000yen ($77,866,000 / £58,508,000) in total. It is a record-breaking figure for the session, which eclipsed the previous record set last year by 14.4 per cent. The average price of 37,468,203yen ($358,000 / £269,000), is 10.8 per cent higher than last

year and also a new record. “I was worried about the general economy, which has been unstable after Brexit,” said Katsumi Yoshida of Northern Farm. “This result is much more than I expected. I would like to thank all who supported the market.” Unsurprisingly, sons of Deep Impact also topped the foal session and both were bought by owner Hajime Satomi for 280,000,000yen ($2,718,447 / £2,018,000). Satomi had strong reasons for buying the Deep Impact fullbrother to Satono Diamond (Lot 389). The runner finished second in this year’s Japanese Derby having been bought by Satomi at the 2013 JRHA Select Sale for

230,000,000yen. Underbidder on the colt out of the Poule d’Essai des Poulains winner Elusive Wave was MV Magnier, making a debut at the JRHA Select Sale. The colt is the dam’s fifth foal and was sold by Northern Farm. “This horse has everything and this is my pick of the day,” said Satomi. “I look for horses who can be competitive at the highest level and I am sure this is the one. My limit was 300 million, and am happy to acquire him within my budget. “When I saw him about a month ago at Northern Farm, he did not look so well,” added Satomi. “He lost his mother [Malpensa died in April from colic], and it might have affected

his condition. However, I found he’d improved when I saw him yesterday at the sales ground and I decided I would buy him.” Through the foal session, 173 lots were sold for 6,811,500,000yen ($65,162,000 / £49,121,000), up 12.2 per cent on 2015, while the average price of 39,372,832yen ($376,000 / £283,000) is 19.4 per cent higher than 2015. It is also a new record for the foal session, beating the previous record of 37,739,819yen set in 2006. The overall aggregate of 14,942,100,000yen ($142,948,000 / £107,756,000), is 13.4 per cent more than last year and a new record for the JRHA sale. The average price through two days of 38,313,077yen ($366,000 / £276,000), is 14.6 per cent higher than 2015 and also a record-breaker. “This is a better result than I expected,” said Teruya Yoshida, acting chairman of JRHA commented. “I worried about the general economy, which has been unstable since Brexit, but I am delighted to see that it did not affect the market here. And I am pleased to see international buyers are active.” Deep Impact, as usual, was the sale’s leading sire and was responsible for the top six yearlings and top five foals.

the news

Dream top of Australian new sires, and an earnings record for Street Cry The Australian firstseason sire prize-money championship has been a nip and tuck race, but, at the time of writing, Ballylinch Stud / Emirates Park shuttle sire Dream Ahead (Diktat) took himself to

the head of affairs. With just two weeks of the season left, Dream Ahead’s progeny earnings in 2015/16 stand at A$446,540, just A$10,000 ahead of Smart Missile, who is on $436,130. Dream Ahead’s fee throughout his southern hemisphere career has been A$27,500, while Smart Missile, who stands at Arrowfield and is a son of Fastnet Rock, is priced at A$22,000. Dream Ahead has had only 19 starters compared to Smart Missile’s 47.

Just behind the leading pair is Coolmore’s Pour Moi ($430,175), Darley’s Sepoy ($417,775), who stood at an initial fee of A$66,000 and is now on A$33,000) for 2016, and Love Conquers All ($416,650), a son of Mossman standing at Eliza Park. The leading first-season sire by winners is also in a state of flux with a two-way tie. Love Conquers All, who started out at stud on a fee of A$13,750, which Dream Ahead just clear in the freshman sires’ list in Australia

He did not make his own debut until mid-August when he beat Nathaniel half a length with Genius Beast a further 5l adrift. Statistics so far will have been influenced by the prevailing ground conditions giving little chance to firm ground specialists and is perhaps the reason that Mayson is up amongst the leading first-season sires. The surprising success of Helmet – eight winners from 26 runners – contrasts strongly with his strike-rate in Australia where he has only had two winners from 26 runners with the country’s 2015-16 racing season soon coming to an end. Sepoy has had double that total in Australia (four from 27), but he did stand at double the fee and should have done better. One of the highlights of July week in Newmarket is the Darley Stallion parade. I was lucky enough to tag along as Liam Norris’s guest as Jenny was at home at Granham Stud looking after the stock and starting the yearling preparations.

Dubawi has some way to surpass Galileo, but he has sired more Group winners than any other stallion at this stage in his career

W

hat a tumultuous three weeks it has been with politics completely outweighing the weather, sport and even last nights’ television as topics of conversation. Admittedly, the English football team’s abysmal display in Euro 2016, the continuing depressing weather and the usual midsummer hiatus in decent TV programmes left a natural opening that was more than filled by referendum discussions. Perhaps the most surprising element of the result was how badly wrong the bookmakers got it – on the close of polls they still had Remain at long odds-on. I had no confidence in the leaders of the Brexit Campaign and felt a Remain vote at least still gave the option of leaving if EU conditions deteriorated further. The dominant shining light in an otherwise rather gloomy summer has been the stellar start Frankel has made as a stallion with seven winners from eight runners so far in the UK.

through the ring meaning I missed seeing all but two of the stallions, this year I managed to see them all. All the stallions were in great condition and all behaved beautifully – with one exception, Slade Power! Dubawi continues to improve his record from a shaky start, I think even Darley has been surprised by his success. He has some way to surpass Galileo, but he has sired more Group winners than any other stallion at this stage in his career. The other stand out for me was Golden Horn who is athletic, an ideal size and seems to have a great temperament. What a pity I cannot afford to use either of them! I did like Night Of Thunder but again, he is out of my price range, so my best chance might be with Hallowed Crown, who is standing at about the same price as Exceed And Excel when I used him in his first year. As always, the hospitality was outstanding right from the first cup of coffee through three different oyster sauces, the crab and lobster with a samphire salad and the excellent selection of cheese.


the news fell to A$11,000 for years two, three and four, and returned to A$13,750 for 2016, the General Nediym sire Sidereus, who has stood at A$6,600 throughout his career, both share the lead with eight individual winners. The pair are one ahead of Smart Missile, who has had seven individual winners, followed by Foxwedge on six and Dream Ahead with four. Last season’s Australian leading first-season sire was Hinchinbrook, who sired eight winners and boasted progeny earnings of A$1,057,035.

Sadly, I was driving up and back from Kingsclere each day so my wine consumption was minimal, but enough to know what I was missing! The flower arrangements by Tolly Considine, an ex-Darley stallion man, were magnificent as usual and I was quite surprised when he told me that 60 per cent of the flowers are grown in East Anglia. My average five hour-drive each day was only made bearable by “audible” books played through my phone and car stereo. Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring carried me through the first three days and then I started Don Quixote, which I had not read. Like Vanity Fair, which I listened to earlier in the year, it is timeless in its portrayal of the human character, with all its weaknesses and strengths. This summer’s Salisbury meetings have been reasonably popular, but lacking in summer weather to boost attendance and bar takings. Northern-based trainers have appeared on a few raids – Michael Appleby had his first winner at the course and Richard Fahey made the long journey with Don’t Touch to take the Listed Cathedral Stakes. In early July, the Malcolm Saunders-trained Sunny Future won his sixth race at Salisbury, adding to his four at Bath.

The winning-most sire was Rothesay with 14 winners. The previous year I Am Invincible took the title with A$1,161,630 in earnings, 15 winners and a leading performer in Brazen Beau, who has just finished his first northernhemisphere season for Darley. It seems the numbers are down this year for the leading young sires’ title.

Street Cry bags a record

Leading the Australian general sires’ list is Darley’s deceased stallion Street Cry,

He has run 65 times, but only won at those two courses! The track is looking in great shape with continual grass cutting and great moisture for the trees, shrubs, wild flowers and, of course, weeds! At Kingsclere we have had a bumper crop of ragwort. It is very difficult to control on the downland banks as pulling it tends to result in soil erosion. Hopefully, though, the plants will breed lots of dark grey and red Cinnabar moths, its main positive benefit. We do try to keep the ragwort out of the paddocks, garden

who has increased his seasonal earnings from around A$7,000,000 in 2014-15 to over A$12,000,000 in 2015-16. His star, the brilliant mare Winx, has single-handedly added over A$5,600,000 to his pot. Runner-up Not A Single Doubt has also broken A$12,000,000 and is A$600,000 behind. It is the first time two stallions have topped A$12,000,000 in the same year, with Street Cry achieving a record, a title previously held by Coolmore’s Fastnet Rock in 2011-12.

and track-sides, but we badly need some natural predator to keep it in check on the sides of the Downs. Meanwhile, we have doubled our hen population with pairs of Leghorns, Blue Marans and Blackrocks. Liam is most upset that I didn’t go with him to buy some pedigree birds from the monthly Salisbury Poultry market. I told him that to Mr Fox all poultry tastes the same… Fortunately, after the fox’s raid on our brood earlier this year, the new round pen seems to be working well as a barrier.

Daily Mail writer rides for charity

New work rider: Marcus Townend

A year ago Marcus Townend, our press room colleague, the Daily Mail’s lead racing reporter, tipster and writer, could not ride a horse. Last November, he set himself the challenge of turning from desk jockey to a real one. In the space of just six months he has progressed from complete beginner to , first, being able to put on a bridle correctly, and now to competent work rider. He has bravely decided to ride in the HEROs charity race held at Windsor on August 27, 2016. He has been regularly riding out for trainer Geoffrey Deacon. “Marcus has done so well and has really impresed me with his effort,” said Deacon. “He has worked hard at his fitness and, after initial steering problems when riding his first piece of work, things have started to drop into place for him. “He is very brave (or foolhardy!) – I certainly wouldn’t have decided to learn to either ride or ride in a race for the first time at our age!” Marcus is riding for a great charity, retraining retired racehorses, and both it and the jockey deserve your full support.

....Girls aloud

uly is always an interesting month: wedged between Royal Ascot and the beginning of silly/sales season in August, there’s good racing through July week at Newmarket and elsewhere, Pia Brandt: debut Group 1 victory and even a few days of sales here and there. At the same time it’s the calm before the storm and a relatively “gentle” spell compared to what’s to come through the following months. Nevertheless, July also contains one of my favourite weeks of the year – and those of you who think it’s through the Newmarket week can be forgiven (but that’s right up there, too). It is, acutally, the third week of July, usually the week I take myself off to Normandy to look at yearlings on the farms in preparation for the Arqana Yearling Sale. Besides the fact that it allows me to get my eye back in, after spending a number of months looking almost exclusively at either horses in training or big mamas and their babies, seeing the yearlings on their own turf – and still a little raw around the edges – adds another dimension to the selection process. At the sales, inspections can be hurried and sometimes unfair on young horses who are out of their comfort zone for the first time. I do firmly believe that the single most important factor that goes into making a successful racehorse isn’t his sire, his dam line or even his price tag – it’s the place that horse has grown up on. There are studs whose charges “outperform” their pedigrees, looks and prices on a regular basis and others who produce beautifully bred, as well as perfectly conformed yearlings which sell for lots of money every year, but who probably didn’t quite live up to expectations. Spending that extra bit of time outside the “sales pressure cooker” helps to forge links and confidence; it let’s me get a feel for the various studs and breeders, the different ways they do things and helps form a more balanced judgment of tomorrow’s stars. One of those horses who outperformed at least his breeding (he never went through a sales ring) is Mont

Aptly named after the hill that served as a linchpin to the outcome of one of the decisive battles in WW2, he defied the odds stacked against him and came through triumphantly. And I suppose that’s one of the nice things about our industry: while the world is reeling from another terrorist attack in France and a military coup in Turkey, putting the sport we love back into perspective, it let’s me rejoice at the fairy tales that we find within it all the more! July 14, 2016 will be branded into most of Europe’s collective memory as a dark day, but it will leave a positively sparkling hub for anyone looking back at the winners’ enclosure at Saint-Cloud. That evening a young Italian jockey, an unfashionably bred horse and a Swedish woman trainer celebrated an unlikely victory after the Grand Prix de Paris. “Unlikely” only when comparing the equine source to those of the opposition, but clearly wholly deserved for Pia Brandt and her team – anyone watching them realise they pour their life and soul into the game on a daily basis. Brandt braved the move from Sweden into one of the best, but also most competitive training environments in Europe, with the support of one single owner. She has steadily risen through the ranks and narrowly missed out on her first Group 1 win earlier this year in the Prix Saint Alary when her filly Camprock was narrowly beaten, being on the wrong side of the track. All dreams were then smashed with injury in the Prix Diane (G1). It is what makes racing and breeding racehorses so wonderful: no matter where you’re from or how humble the beginnings might have been, hard work and an obligatory ounce of luck can catapult you into the stars. And when that happens – as the wise Irish trainer Arthur Moore would say – “months of misery turn into moments of magic!”

Fast ground brought out the best in the Tagula gelding and connections now have all global options open to them, writes Sue Montgomery

utre temps, autre moeurs. Early in his long and distinguished career Henry Candy made his mark at the top level with middle-distance stars, horses of the calibre of Derby runner-up Master Willie, whose CV included a Benson & Hedges Gold Cup, a Coronation Cup and an Eclipse Stakes, and with the wonderful mare Time Charter, heroine of an Oaks, a Champion Stakes, a King George and a Coronation Cup. For 20 years now, though, he has plied his Group 1 trade with sprinters, starting with Eveningperformance, beaten a short-head by Pivotal in the Nunthorpe Stakes in 1966. Since then the Kingstone Warren gallops have been trodden by horses such as Gorse, Kyllachy, Airwave, Markab and Music Master, all of them winners or placed in the highest grade. The Oxfordshire stable’s latest stars, Twilight Son and Limato, have won two of this season’s first four top sprints. Candy’s change of emphasis has not been part of a master plan, just a reflection of changes in the industry. For him, as for many of his professional colleagues, owner-breeders

who supply Classic types are in shorter supply than they used to be. And at the sales, embryonic sprinters tend to cost less than a horse who might win a Derby. Limato, who produced a notable change of gear to take the Darley July Cup by a decisive 2l, was secured as a yearling for £41,000 at Doncaster and has now won seven races and nearly three-quarters of a million, with the promise of more to come. His 70-year-old owner Paul Jacobs, a retired city lawyer, has turned down sevenfigure sums for his pride and joy (named for his wife Linda and his late parents Marjorie and Tom) in favour of enjoying a once-in-alifetime journey. But there still remains the prospect of a substantial return, with a trip to the Breeders’ Cup meet at Santa Anita in November pencilled in for the four-year-old. The 6f July Cup was Limato’s first top-level success in his four attempts, but his potential has long been apparent, most notably as a juvenile when he won Redcar’s valuable TwoYear-Old Trophy on the bridle, and at three when he streaked nearly 4l clear of 14 rivals in the Group 2 Park Stakes over 7f.

The most important thing for him is the ground. He likes it rattling quick and he’s not the same unless he can feel it under his toes There was little disgrace in either of last year’s Group 1 second spots in the Commonwealth Cup (to Muhaarar) and in the Prix De La Forêt (to Make Believe) or in his fourth place in a soft-ground Lockinge Stakes (to Belardo) in May, his first try at a mile. But if there were those who felt Limato was rather flattering to deceive, back on his favoured fast ground, he delivered. And it was not only Candy who kept the faith, but also punters. The Tagula gelding started 9-2 favourite, heading the market for the eighth time in his 11 runs. At four, Limato has matured physically, although mentally he is still something of a brat. He hates being saddled, does not always leave the stalls with enthusiasm and when asked to get on with his job has shown he can

Trainer Henry Candy, owner Paul Jacobs, jockey Harry Bentley, breeder Seamus Phelan travel sideways as fast as he can go forward. His Newmarket defeat of Suedois, Quiet Reflection and Profitable – the last two-named winners of the Commonwealth Cup and King’s Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot would have been even

more impressive had he not veered badly right through the final furlong. It was a landmark Group 1 breakthrough for 24-year-old Harry Bentley, Limato’s new partner this year. Their progress through the rest of the European season – the Prix Maurice de Gheest at Deauville and the Sprint Cup at Haydock are under consideration – will be dictated by underfoot conditions and for the Californian venture. The colt will be entered there in both the Turf Sprint and the Mile.

Limato belied his pedigree background

Limato was a second Group 1 winner for Tagula after top-class miler Canford Cliffs, winner of five races at the highest level and now a promising young stallion at Coolmore. The Rathbarry Stud veteran (who won the July Stakes at the meeting back in 1995) has been available at €4,000 for the past eight seasons and also has smart three-year-old Humphrey Bogart, winner of the Lingfield Derby Trial and fifth at Epsom, running for him this year. The July Cup hero, the second produce of the Singspiel mare Come April, was

uk racing bred by Seamus Phelan of Weylands Stud in County Kildare. Come April was not much of a runner – she won her maiden at Lingfield by a short-head on her debut as a three-year-old in 2007 but raced only twice more, finishing last in a 1m2f Pontefract handicap at five on her final appearance. She was then sold for £3,800 at Doncaster. But she is from a very good family. Her unraced dam So Admirable, by Suave Dancer, is out of Sumoto, and so is a sister to one Group 1 winner in Compton Admiral, a halfsister to another in Summoner and also to Twyla Tharp, the dam of a third in The Fugue. Limato may have been cheap in the greater scheme of things, but he was expensive for a Tagula yearling (only one by the sire fetched more in 2013) and by Candy’s starspotting standards – Airwave, for instance, cost 12,000gns, and Kyllachy 36,000gns. But on all counts he has proved a testament to the 71-year-old trainer’s eternally shrewd eye, which saw beyond the young frame he has described as “small and whippety”. The Group 1 victories of Compton Admiral, who won the 1996 Eclipse Stakes as the 20-1 outsider of eight, and Summoner, who was also the outsider of eight, at 33-1, when acting as pacemaker for runner-up Noverre in the 2001 Queen Elizabeth II Stakes, were both one-offs. But happily it does seem that for Limato, his first top-level strike is a beginning, not an end. “It was a wonderful performance,” said Candy, “and I’ve never had him in better form coming into a race. But the most important thing for him is the ground. He likes it rattling quick and he’s not the same unless he can feel it under his toes.” One of racing’s oft-quoted adages is that a top horse should go on any ground, which is actually a risible notion, given the thoroughbred’s variation in physique and aptitude. Just as Limato had been crying out for the summer ground that the came (at last) with the Newmarket July meeting, so was his stablemate Twilight Son, winner last year of the Haydock Sprint and this of the Golden Jubilee Stakes on good-to-soft, but only 14th in the July Cup, compromised by it.

Alice Springs: a first top level success in the Falmouth, giving sire Galileo his 107th G1 win

Alice Springs has proved herself one of the best and toughest of an exceptional vintage of fillies currently under the care of Aidan O’Brien in Alice Springs, who landed a considerable gamble in the Tattersalls Falmouth Stakes as she ran right away from the four-year-olds Very Special and Always Smile on her first venture into all-aged company. It was the lovely Galileo filly’s first Group 1 success, and her first win since she took a valuable juvenile contest, likewise sponsored by the local auction house, on

good-to-firm on the Rowley Mile last October. For most of her career she has been running in top company and Alice Springs has proved herself one of the best and toughest of an exceptional vintage of fillies currently under the care of Aidan O’Brien. At two she was third to stablemates Minding and Ballydoyle in the Group 1 Moyglare Stud Stakes, was beaten barely a length when fourth to Lumiere in the Cheveley Park Stakes (G1) and ran a stormer when a close second in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Filly Turf (G1). This year she gave best again to Minding and Ballydoyle in the 1,000 Guineas, and also finished third in the Irish version of the Classic (to Jet Setting and Minding) and in the Coronation Stakes to Qemah and Nemoralia, arguably unluckily as she came home best of all after traffic problems. Alice Springs provided the 107th Group or Grade 1 success for her sire Galileo and was his 56th individual scorer at that level, with Derby 11th Deauville then adding to both tallies in the Derby Invitational at Belmont.

Godolphin enjoyed a good month in July, and the Superlative Stakes winner Boynton looks an exciting prospect for the future The filly, who was bred by various Coolmore business and family interests and had a 550,000gns price tag as a Tattersalls yearling, is out of the winning Listed-placed Danehill Dancer mare Aleagueoftheirown, whose dam Golden Coral is a sister to 1989 Coronation Stakes (G1) heroine Golden Opinion.

Just like before

The summer is proving to be quite like old times with the resurgence of Sheikh Mohammed’s revamped Godolphin operation. The week before the Newmarket festival the blues’ Group 3 Royal Ascot winner Hawkbill continued his upward mobility by seeing off Coolmore’s The Gurkha in the Eclipse Stakes. Hawkbill, a $350,000 yearling, was a first European Group 1 victory for North America’s best Turf sire Kitten’s Joy. Against their old rivals, Alice Springs then got one back at the top level for the County Tipperary operation, with Very Special and Always Smile carrying the blue silks and the team’s Royal Ascot-winning first string Usherette, later found to have bled, a disappointing sixth of seven. On the July course, Godolphin notched four victories – with Boynton in the Group 2

Roly Poly, a daughter of War Front, a sister to Ballydoyle out of four-time Group 1 winner Misty For Me, was one of three winners for her Claiborne-based sire Superlative Stakes, Easy Victory and Dubai Hero in juvenile maidens and Mise En Rose in a 7f handicap – against three for Coolmore with Alice Springs, Roly Poly in the Group 2 Duchess of Cambridge Stakes and Housesofparliament in the Bahrain Trophy (G3). The hard-working, progressive Roly Poly stepped up from her Group 3 victory at the Curragh 12 days earlier to tough it out in a four-way photo. Roly Poly, a daughter of War Front, a sister to Ballydoyle out of four-time Group 1 winner Misty For Me, was one of three winners for her Claiborne-based sire during the week, the others being fillies’ juvenile maiden

winner Hawana and Mise En Rose. The stallion was also represented by two Group 2 juvenile runners-up, the O’Brien pair of Intelligence Cross and War Decree. Boynton, from Charlie Appleby’s yard, came on from an even more recent success having won his maiden on debut six days earlier. The More Than Ready colt, a $750,000 yearling, showed an admirable attitude to see off the War Decree by less than a length, the pair 5l clear of their rivals. In the meeting’s other juvenile feature, the Group 2 July Stakes, the Al Shaqab colourbearer Mehmas put his experience to good use to see off Intelligence Cross by half a length, paying a fine compliment to his easy O’Brien-trained Coventry Stakes conqueror Caravaggio in the process. It was a fifth success in seven years for the Richard Hannon yard in what is the world’s oldest surviving two-year-old contest (it was established in 1786), the latest victor, a son of Acclamation, having joined the string at a cost of 170,000gns at the Tattersalls Breeze-Up Sale in April. We have likely already seen the winners of next year’s 2,000 and 1,000 Guineas somewhere – seven out of the past ten of both had made their debuts before the end of July of the relevant year.

credentials for the Leger as he bounced back from the King Edward VII Stakes to outstay Platitude, but his stable will likely have other candidates, and probably by Galileo, too. It’s a rare enough horse who can win two editions of the Princess Of Wales’ Stakes; only five have done so since the 1m4f contest’s first running in 1894, and Big Orange has joined Lance Chest (1912-13), Primera (1959-60), Lomond (1965-66) and Millenary (2002-03) on the roll of honour. Last year the admirable Michael Belltrained five-year-old caused a surprise when he defied odds of 25-1; second time around success was less unexpected, but he still managed to turn over the favourite The Grey Gatsby, benefitting from an excellent ride from the front by Antipodean star James McDonald, to post a career-best effort. The target for the Gredley family’s Duke Of Marmalade gelding will once again be the Melbourne Cup, in which he was fifth last year beaten just over 2l before he finished a neck second in the Dubai Gold Cup.

But whether or not any of those successful at the latest Newmarket summer showpiece fixture make a victorious Classic impact remains to be seen. The last July Stakes winner to do so was Darius, who took the 1954 Guineas. Recent winners of the other two Group 2 races only Dubawi and Dr Devious, in the Superlative Stakes, and Attraction and Sayyedati, in the Duchess Of Cambridge (ex Cherry Hinton) Stakes, have done so. But the meeting regularly produces plenty of young talent, and not just in the Group races. Last year’s maiden winners include subsequent Prix Marcel Boussac heroine Ballydoyle (Dabyah won this year’s equivalent) and Mark Johnston-trained Lumiere, who went on to take the Cheveley Park Stakes. The last-named disappointed in the 1,000 Guineas when last behind Minding, but the daughter of Shamardal put her season right back on track on her return to the July Course

as she slammed Cymric by 6l in the Listed Sir Henry Cecil Stakes over a mile. The latest Classic winner to appear in advance at the July meeting was actually Masked Marvel, who won the Bahrain Trophy in 2011 and went on to St Leger glory. This year’s Bahrain Stakes winner Housesofparliament put forward solid

Domination

Zelzal gives the French champion trainer yet another Group 1 win, writes Jocelyn de Moubray

J

ean-Claude Rouget has dominated France’s racing season from the beginning to the end, or least until mid-July and the halfway point of the season. Up to July 10 there had been 27 Group races for three-yearolds in France, and remarkably Rouget has won 13 of them. No other trainer had won more than two. He was leading all trainers in terms of prize-money won with €4.6 million (without premiums), more than double the total won by André Fabre

who is in second place. His Pau-based stable had won 99 races, 27 more than his closest rival Henri-Alex Pantall, and he had won with 24 per cent of his runners, better than any of the other big stables by a clear margin. If it is unlikely that Rouget will ever have quite such a talented group of three-year-olds again, his current season could easily get a great deal better over the coming months. Zelzal became the third of Rouget’s three-year-olds to win a Group 1 with an imposing victory

in the Prix Jean Prat run over a mile at Chantilly on July 10. The dual Classic-winning filly La Cressonniere is unbeaten and the form of the first of her Classic victories could not have worked out better as she beat two subsequent Group 1 winners at Deauville in Qemah and Alice Springs. Almanzor and Zelzal are almost equally unexposed and there are enough Group 1 races between a mile and 1m2f for them to win more without taking on each other. There is also every sign that

this year’s Euroepan and British three-year-olds are an aboveaverage generation – Hawkbill beat older horses to win his Group 1, while The Gurkha and Quiet Reflection have gone close to doing so.

Fast Prix Jean Prat won in track record time

Zelzal’s Chantilly win was spectacular. Al Shaqab’s son of Sea The Stars broke the track record and it was the fastest Jean Prat by 1.62sec, equivalent to 8l faster than any other runnings over a mile since 2005.

Derby victory on heavy ground for Lord Of England colt the weather turned in France after the Chantilly Classic races to produce good or even firm ground, but the opposite has been the case in Germany. The Hamburg Derby meeting was close to being abandoned completely, and the rain was so heavy and persistent that a day’s racing was cancelled and the Derby itself was the only race on the final two days where starting stalls were used. The official going was heavy to very heavy, and unofficially it was very deep and cut up. There were many withdrawals, but whatever the ground, the Derby weekend is still the most important weekend for Germany’s racing professionals and a full field of 19 ran in the Classic. The favourite, the unbeaten Group 2 winner Boscaccio, was one of many who could never cope with the ground and who looked beaten after the first turn. El Loco made the running, settling comfortably in front, but the son of Lope De Vega’s stamina

ran out at the top of the home straight, leaving the finish to be contested by Isfahan and Dschingis Secret, who had both been just behind the leaders in the early part of the race. These two were joined in the final stages by Savoir Vivre, who had been outpaced but who stayed on through the heavy ground. Isfahan just held on to beat Savoir Vivre by a head with Dschingis Secret a half length behind in third. Isfahan gave his owner’s Darius Racing their first Group 1 winner. Darius Racing is managed by Holger Faust, who purchased Isfahan as a yearling in Baden Baden for €35,000, and has become one of the biggest owners in Germany with around 22 horses in training listed on the German Racing site. The Darius string is spread across six different trainers, including Isfahan’s trainer and breeder Andreas Wohler and also includes the Group-winning three-year-old filly Parvaneh.

Isfahan is the second Group 1 and Classic winner for his sire Lord Of England whose daughter Feodora won the German Oaks in 2014. As a two-year-old two Isfahan had defeated Degas to win Germany’s top juvenile race and then he had won the Derby Trial in Munich, his owners’ home track. He contested the Derby Italiano, but was unable to show his form on very firm ground and was clearly well suited to the heavy ground in Hamburg. Surprisingly, the result was more or less what could have been expected even if the ground has been better and more suitable for Boscaccio and El Loco, first and second in the Union Rennen (G2), the main Derby trial. Savoir Vivre has looked promising, if backward, all year and Dschingis Secret had finished third in the Union Rennen. The other major trail winner Wai Key Star was fourth, fading out of contention in the closing stages.


euro racing In his prep race over the same course and distance, the Group 3 Prix Paul de Moussac, Zelzal had put up an excellent time, but the 1min34.48sec of the Jean Prat was 5l faster. The Jean Prat was run at an average speed of 38 mph, and the fastest 400m came as they raced up the hill from the château and round the home bend at which point they were running at 40mph. The first 5f were run in 58.61sec at an average speed of 38.4mph, while, contrary to the usual style of French racing, in the straight only Zelzal was still full of running and they completed the final 600m in 35.87sec, an average speed of 37.6mph. At the line Zelzal was a comfortable 2l in front of Stormy Antarctic and Spectre, who were separated by only a short-head and finished a further length and three-quarters ahead of

Nemoralia and Degas. Stormy Antarctic and Nemoralia had both finished second in Group 1 races previously, while Spectre was an unlucky fifth in the Poule d’Essai des Pouliches beaten less than 2l by La Cressonniere and Degas had looked unlucky to be beaten a nose in the German 2,000 Guineas. This was a high-class field and Zelzal was far too good for them. Nemoralia and Degas appeared to run out of stamina on the run to the line and the first three are all likely to repeat this level of form over a longer trip in races run at a slightly less frantic pace, that is if the principles recover their form after this. The Jour de Galop came up with several examples of three-year-olds who had put up exceptional time performances in Group 1s, yet were unable to repeat the same performance for many months, if ever.

The previous record holder for the Jean Prat was Turtle Bowl, who was off the track for a year afterwards, and then Montmartre never ran again after winning the Grand Prix de Paris in a record time in 2005. Flotilla didn’t win again after taking the Poule d’Essai des Pouliches in a record time in 2013 and the second Esoterique only ran once more unplaced as a three-year-old.

Timoshenko’s Sea The Stars and Kingmambo plan Zelzal is the fifth Group 1 winner from the first three crops of his sire Sea The Stars and the first to win his Group 1 over a mile. Zelzal is the latest example of the success Sea The Stars has with daughters of Kingmambo, a cross more or less created by Zelzal’s breeder Viktor Timoshenko.

The Ukrainian Timoshenko first become well known in French racing when his Kentucky Dynamite, a son of Kingmambo trained by Alain de Royer-Dupré, finished second behind Stormy River in the first Jean Prat over a mile. Kingmambo and his mother Miesque clearly made a strong impression on Timoshenko, who has for several years bought yearlings by Kingmambo in Kentucky. His first reaction after Zelzal’s victory in the Moussac was to tell Rouget that “he accelerates like Miesque”. Timoshenko keeps his mares in France. Zelzal was raised at the Haras du Quesnay, and he has sent several daughters of Kingmambo to Sea The Stars producing Migwar, who was Group-placed at three in 2015 and is still in training with Freddy Head, and Chemical Charge, Group-placed at three in 2016 for trainer Ger Lyons.

euro racing There is also the very promising three-year-old colt Dalgarno, who is in training with Nicolas Clement and likely to contest top races later this year. Others from this cross include the good two-year-olds Sivoliere and Cloth Of Stars suggesting that the inbreeding to Mr Prospector in the cross produces horses more precocious than the average Sea The Stars. Zelzal himself is head and shoulders better than any other horse his family has produced since his third dam State Crystal won the Lancashire Oaks in the early 1990s. His second dam didn’t win and produced only two winners, despite going to some of the best stallions in Kentucky for years. Timoshenko purchased Olga Prekrasa as a yearling at Keeneland September for $325,000. She has a two-year-old filly by

Redoute’s Choice called Ibiza in training with Nicolas Clement.

Three-year-old filly War flying the Flag

Rouget trained four winners on the day of the Jean Prat and the other who looks to have a big future is Joe Allen’s homebred three-year-old filly War Flag, a decisive winner of the Group 3 Prix Chloe over 1m2f. The daughter of War Front is a sister to the Hong Kong Group 1 winner Helene Super Star and out of a half-sister to Dynaformer. She made her career debut in early March in Deauville, on the same day as Zelzal. She finished second in a slowly run race and has been brought along quietly by her trainer since looking unlucky when narrowly beaten in another falsely run race at Chantilly and

winning conditions races at both Maison Laffitte and Chantilly. On her first start in a Group race War Flag showed vastly improved form coming from last to first to catch and pass Chartreuse, who looked to have quickened into a winning lead.

Kitten’s Joy colt wins the Daphnis

Yet another Rouget-trained potential Group 1 horse is the Kitten’s Joy colt Taareef who won the Prix Daphnis (G3) over 1m1f. This was a very different type of race as it was run 6.8sec slower than the Chloe over the same course and distance. Taareef did, nevertheless, have the speed to go past stable companion George Patton to win by three-quarters of a length and Hamdan Al Maktoum’s colt remains a top prospect.

Poulains a “strange race”

It looks as though the Poule d’Essai des Poulains run over Deauville straight mile was a strange race. None of the first six home that day, headed by The Gurkha, have managed to win a race since, while those who finished behind, beaten 7l and further, have not stopped winning good races since. Taareef finished only seventh, the eighth Moon Trouble went on to be an excellent second to Zelzal in the Paul de Moussac, while the ninth and tenth, Attendu and Jimmy Two Times, have both Group races in Deauville and will be the leading French contenders for the Group 1 Maurice de Gheest. The 11th home was Zelzal and last was Richard Fahey’s, Godolphin-owned Birchwood, who has since won a Listed race at Chester and is BHA rated 113.

Horses in training in demand, but yearling session sees some falls in “key areas” at Fasig July, writes Melissa Bauer-Herzog

W

ith a quiet month of racing in July after the grind of the Triple Crown, the North American racing community turned its attention to Kentucky where the first major sale of the summer took place. Owners looking to add broodmares and racehorses to their strings were given a chance on Monday, July 11 at Fasig-Tipton during the first of two days of the Kentucky July Sale. For the first time since FasigTipton added a Horses of Racing

Age section to the sale in 2013, the July Sale was switched to a two-day format with the section taking center stage on Monday during a special evening session. While the sale included a dispersal of Eutrophia Farm through the Taylor Made consignment, the sale headliners were undoubtedly the Grade 1 winner Stormy Lucy, who was selling as a broodmare prospect, and Grade 3-winning three-yearold Donegal Moon. Neither sold in the ring with Donegal Moon ending up as an expensive buy back at $1.6 million.


us racing Leading first-crop sire was Hill ‘n’ Dale’s Violence, a son of Medaglia D’Oro: this colt out of Frolic’s Dam made $335,000, top-price for the sire

But Stormy Lucy quickly found a new owner and SF Bloodstock bought the six-year-old mare privately for $575,000 within hours of going through the ring. It was announced the following morning by Australian bloodstock agent Paul Moroney that he had then purchased 50 per cent of the mare from SF for Australia’s Cressfield Stud. Plans for Stormy Lucy include being bred to Frankel on southern hemisphere time this year and then to Capitalist in 2017. From 91 horses offered, 72 sold for a total of $5,048,500, up from the $3,996,000 total achieved by the 65 sold in 2015. The Euthrophia Farm dispersal horses selling without reserve played a large part in improving the sale’s buyback rate, with it dropping from 32 per cent in 2015

to 21 per cent this year. Removing the 22 dispersal horses the buyback rate rose to 28 per cent, still a four per cent improvement from 2015. The average price increased by 14 per cent from $61,477 to $70,118, though the median dipped down 13 per cent to $42,000 from last year’s $48,000. The most expensive horse to sell in the ring was Best Behavior, a Grade 3-winning daughter of Into Mischief, who was sold to SF Bloodstock for $250,000. She was followed by Lookout Sister, a winning Giant’s Causeway filly from the family of Union Rags and Declaration Of War, bought by Don Alberto Corporation for $230,000.

Yearling sale topper the cheapest since 2013

Tuesday was all about the yearlings with both pinhookers

and racing owners looking to replenish their stock for next year’s two-year-old sales and 2017 racing season. The yearling session proved to be a buyers’ market with the sale seeing dips in a few key areas. The sale-topping $475,000 Curlin colt was the cheapest sale-topper since 2013, but only $25,000 cheaper than 2015. Of the 293 yearlings offered, 183 sold for a total of $15,756,500 down 21 per cent from 205 of 288 selling for $20,005,000 in 2015. After a four-year-rise, the average took a 12 per cent drop to $86,101, with the median falling 22 per cent to $60,000 from $77,000 last year. Seventeen horses fetched $200,000 or more this year, just one less than 2015 with a range of sires bringing those prices. Traditionally this is the first

sale at which buyers can get a look at yearlings by new sires, and this year didn’t disappoint. Yearlings by 31 new sires went through the ring, including offerings by two Kentucky Derby winners and a Preakness winner. With stallions having those credentials on their resumé, one would be forgiven if they assumed that Animal Kingdom or Orb would lead all first-crop sires, but it was Violence that shined. A Grade 1 winner who had to retire early due to injury, Violence stands at Hill ‘n’ Dale where he stood his first season in 2014 for $15,000. Each of his six yearlings to sell fetched $25,000 or more with two bringing $235,000 or more. Even more impressive for the young sire is that he was the only stallion to have two yearlings in the top 10.

us racing His most expensive was a colt out of Grade 2 winner Frolic’s Dream whose two-year-old daughter Bode’s Dream provided a timely update when winning the Astoria Stakes at Belmont. The colt sold for $335,000 to LaPenta, Bridlewood and Three Chimneys, one of only four yearlings to bring over $300,000.

Curlin in demand

While four of the top five most expensive yearlings were by stalwarts in the breeding industry it was Curlin, not Tapit, who had the most expensive yearling. Curlin grabbed the top spot

mid-way through the sale and didn’t let go with his son out of a stakes-producing dam bringing $475,000. Bought as a pinhook venture and signed for by Hartley De Renzo Thoroughbreds, the colt was one of three Curlins to go through the ring and the most expensive by nearly $300,000. The colt’s second dam is a half-sister to multiple Grade 1 winner and sire Ogygian with his extended family, including Honour And Glory. Even with just two entries in the sale, it was expected that Tapit would feature highly and he didn’t disappoint.

His son out of Grade 1 winner Lighthouse Bay was a buyback for $355,000, but his son out of Ithinkisawapudycat was the second-best yearling at $450,000. The colt’s dam is a stakesplaced runner, but what lit up the page was his two-year-old sister Sweet Loretta; she was an impressive debut winner for Todd Pletcher just a few weeks before the sale. Also of note on his page is his dam’s half-sister, the Canadian champion Spring In The Air, and the deep family that includes multiple graded stakes winner and Kentucky Derby runner-up

Tejano Run and Group 2 Royal Lodge winner More Royal. Showing the depth of stallions available to US breeders right now, the 17 most expensive yearlings at the sale were by 12 different stallions aged six to 19 standing for fees of $10,000 to $300,000 in 2016. Only Uncle Mo had more than two horses in the top 15 with three of his yearlings bringing $200,000 or more and two others bringing at least $175,000. Overall, stallions with foals four years of age or younger accounted for 11 of the 17 yearlings that sold for $200,000 or more.

Still no Catching Glimpse

The brilliant filly maintains her near impeccable record in the Belmont Oaks

O

n the track, while the US was still celebrating Tepin’s win in the Queen Anne Stakes (G1) at Royal Ascot, trainer Mark Casse showed she isn’t the only top horse in his barn. On July 3, he sent the four-year-old Northern Afleet gelding World Approval to the United Nations Stakes, coming home with a length and a quarter win in the Grade 1 over some of the best male Turf horses the US has to offer. But it was a week later when Casse showed the world his heir apparent to Tepin. Catch A Glimpse, who won the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf in 2015, was stretching out for the first time over 1m2f in the $1 million Belmont Oaks. Facing a tough field that included international challengers, Catch A Glimpse’s eight-race winning streak (from nine starts) never looked in serious danger as she galloped into he lead with her ears pricked, even with Irish raider Coolmore pushing her. Time And Motion had a few people holding their breaths in the final strides as she closed the winning margin to a half-length, but it wasn’t enough to beat last year’s Canadian Horse of the Year. Coolmore, a Group 3-winning full-sister to European Classic winners Gleneagles and Marvellous, finished third. As Catch A Glimpse has made it clear she can easily go 1m2f, it gives connections plenty more options for the second half of the year with the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf run at this same distance. That has to be a relief for Casse who won’t have to pitch his two best horses against each other in the Breeders’ Cup Mile.

www.internationalthoroughbred.net

Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Filly Turf first and second Catch A Glimpse and runner-up Alice Springs franked the form at Group and Grade 1 level in July

Undefeated on Turf, Catch A Glimpse is just the latest superstar for the versatile sire City Zip who has produced everything from Breeders’ Cup-winning Dirt sprinters to Turf routers. The filly was purchased for only $75,000 as a yearling and races for Gary Barber, Michael James Ambler and Windways Farm. Her Grade 1 victory was the fourth of the year for Casse and his third in a little over three weeks. Airoforce nearly gave Casse his fourth, just two races before the Belmont Oaks, when losing the $1,250,000 Belmont Derby by only 3l. He was one of nine horses within that distance of the Irish invader Deauville. Deauville gave trainer Aidan O’Brien his first win in the race after the trainer finished second by a neck in the 2014 edition with eventual Cox Plate winner Adelaide. Splitting those two winners was 2015 New York Horse of the Year Effinex, who was the first horse since Devil His Due in 1993 and 1994 to win the $500,000 Suburban. Trained by Jimmy Jerkens, whose father trained Devil His Due, Effinex has won his two Suburbans by a combined quarter length.

T

he last update featured a couple of real “hit it out of the ballpark” performances courtesy of wide-margin wins by Frosted in the Metropolitan Handicap at Belmont (rated 136 by Timeform) and A Shin Hikari in the Prix d’Ispahan at Chantilly (133). There is nothing quite of that calibre to report on this time round, but neither has there been a dearth of classy efforts. Classiest of all on Timeform ratings was the win of Limato in the 6f July Cup, a 2l that earned the gelded son of Tagula a 129 figure, which is marginally the best in Britain and Ireland this year. His defeat of 122-rated Suedois and 120-rated Quiet Reflection was backed up by a good time. The Newmarket July meeting also saw big efforts in victory from Big Orange

Classiest of all on Timeform ratings was the win of Limato in the 6f July Cup, a 2l victory that earned the gelded son of Tagula a 129 figure

(123) in the Princess of Wales’s Stakes and Alice Springs (117) in the Falmouth Stakes, though the former was assisted by being able to set slow fractions, whereas the latter came good at last in a strongly-run contest which smashed the course record with the aid of a tailwind. The biggest race in Britain otherwise in the period under review was the Eclipse Stakes at Sandown, which proved rather messy and went the way of the Godolphin-owned Hawkbill (125) by half a length from The Gurkha. The latter might not quite have got home at this longer distance (ran to 123 compared to best of 127), while third-placed Time Test was possibly unsuited by the soft going. The proximity of Time Test’s pacemaker Countermeasure (rated only 90 going into this) adds to the impression that all might not

Speed and stamina

Simon Rowlands sees some strong Timeform and ratings performances in July from Harzand, Minding and Hawkbill, but the best performance so far in Britain this year came from Limato, who ran to 129 in the July Cup There is no doubting the versatility – nor the toughness and consistency – of Minding

have been quite what it seemed. A slow pace, a fast finish and the uncomfortably close proximity of an outsider also calls the bare form of the Irish Derby at The Curragh into question, though Harzand’s defeat of Idaho did no harm to the standing of the Derby itself at Epsom, where they had finished first and third in a much more stronglyrun race. Harzand is considered to have run to 121 at The Curragh, compared to 128 at Epsom, with Idaho’s figures 120 and 123 respectively. Slightly suspect race though the Irish Derby might have been, the

Effinex is not the most consistent, but he is very capable of putting in 126-rated performances on his day, and he did so again when landing the Suburban Handicap

speed Harzand showed in it does seem to bury the idea that he is “just a staying type”. There is no doubting the versatility – nor the toughness and consistency – of Minding, who followed up her win in the Oaks at Epsom with an emphatic defeat of Bocca Baciata in the Pretty Polly Stakes at the Curragh. This was another falsely-run race, and Minding’s rating of 118 is slightly below her peak of 122. As mentioned previously, the 2015 Triple Crown winner American Pharoah (who was rated 138 by Timeform) is no longer running, but his reputation continues to come under scrutiny by proxy. Frosted has done American Pharoah’s legacy no harm whatsoever, and Effinex – who was a distant second to American Pharoah in the Breeders’ Cup Classic – is doing his bit also. Effinex is not the most consistent, but he is very capable of putting in 126-rated performances on his day, and he did so again when landing the Suburban Handicap under top-weight at Belmont, which is narrowly the best winning non-European effort in recent weeks. On the same Belmont card, there was a win for the Irish raider Deauville (117 rating) under a well-judged Jamie Spencer ride in the Belmont Derby Invitational and for the unbeaten Mark Casse-trained Catch A Glimpse (115) in the Belmont Oaks Invitational. Overall, the stateside three-year-old fillies Effinex and jockey Mike Smith leads Melatonin and Joseph Talamo at the 1/16 pole in the Oaklawn Handicap in April

seem a good bunch. Songbird (125) leads the way and made the most of an easy chance in the mile Summertime Oaks at Santa Anita in June, but the likes of the Acorn Stakes one-two Carina Mia (123) and Off The Tracks (122) are snapping at her heels. Off The Tracks went one better, and in some style, in the mile Mother Goose Stakes at Belmont more recently. Effinex had beaten fellow five-year-old Melatonin in the Oaklawn Handicap at Oaklawn in April, and the latter was back for a big-race success in the Gold Cup at Santa Anita in June, a performance of 123. The aforementioned A Shin Hikari is currently relying on those he thrashed in the d’Ispahan to bolster his standing, and some of them have been doing a good job. Following My Dream Boat’s Royal Ascot win (in which the Japanese star was last), the d’Ispahan third and ninth, Silverwave and Erupt, came first and second in the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud. This was not an especially strong Group 1, but it was truly run, and respective ratings of 124 and 123 are not to be sniffed at. “Not an especially strong Group 1” could also be used to describe the Prix Jean Prat, but there is a lot to like about the race’s winner, Zelzal, who has been beaten only once in five starts. A 2l defeat of Stormy Antarctic earns him a rating of 122, and not much more would be needed to get up to the level of the likes of Galileo Gold and The Gurkha. Japan’s Takarazuka Kinen – won by the likes of Gold Ship and Orfevre in the past – at Hanshin in June was well up to scratch, with Marialite (121) edging it over Duramente and Kitasan Black (both 126, having conceded weight to the year-older mare). Sadly, Duramente returned lame and has been retired. Ito (124) remains the best horse in Germany, though he faces decent opposition from the 2014 Melbourne Cup winner Protectionist (ran to 120 in winning Grosser Hansa-Preis at Hamburg recently) and the up-andcoming Isfahan. He got home by a head from Savoir Vivre in the Deutsches Derby, with both horses running to 116s. The former had previously been only fifth to Saent (111) in the Italian equivalent at Rome, where the ground was possibly too firm for him.

Rouget frequently operates at an amazing winning 28 per cent strike rate, and he has already won five Group 1 races in 2016


jean-claude rouget

The Group 1 man Most of the top races in France this year, as well as a few others abroad, have gone the way of Pau-based champion trainer Jean-Claude Rouget. We find out the secrets of his succcess from his biggest owners, and the young racehorse trainers he supports

A

ll great trainers have unusual careers, excellence in such a competitive sporting world is difficult to attain and even harder to maintain, but among Europe’s best trainers Jean-Claude Rouget had a particularly long journey to reach the very top of his profession. But nobody can doubt that is where Rouget

belongs today. His 6,000th winner came in April this year and no active European trainer has won more races. Since his Pau stable broke through with its first Classic victories in 2009, Rouget has won ten Classics races, while his 23 European Group 1 successes since puts him in fifth place behind only Aidan O’Brien, John Gosden, André Fabre and Freddy Head.

Rouget wins a huge number of races and plenty of the best with astonishing regularity. Over the six years from 2009-2015 his stable won 1,147 races in France from only 4,144 runners, a strong strike rate of 28 per cent winners to runners. His average seasonal total in this period was 191 wins. Of the 160 horses listed under his name on

www.internationalthoroughbred.net

jean-claude rouget France Galop’s website at least half belong to his core of French-based owners such as Gerard Augustin Normand, Antonio Caro, Daniel Treves, Jean Louis Tepper and others who have supported and bought yearlings with Rouget for years. There are, of course, plenty of international owners in the stable, too, including notably the Aga Khan, Al Shaqab and Joe Allen among others but in this, as in other respects, success at the top level has not changed the way Rouget works.

46

www.internationalthoroughbred.net

He is a true leader and when you visit his stable it feels like a family, but a very professional and successful one

In the circumstances it is hardly surprising that Rouget’s owners are appreciative. “He has had a lot of success for us,’ says


jean-claude rouget Georges Rimaud of the Aga Khan Studs, “and we are not the only ones. “I think he is a fantastic horseman, but the whole organisation is quite remarkable. Jean-Claude is a true leader and when you go to visit his stable it feels like a family, but a very professional and successful one.” Sylvain Vidal works with Gerard Augustin Normand for whom Rouget has trained Le Havre, Avenir Certain and now La Cressoniere. “I am sure his huge experience counts for

Qemah with a jubilant Gregory Benoist after taking the Group 1 Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot

a great deal,” Vidal explains. “He has been training for a long time and has trained many horses at every different level of the sport. He knows how to place his horses and how to manage their careers. Nobody is better at giving his horses value and in my experience Jean-Claude has an idea for every horse. It also goes without saying that he has great team who work together in a wonderful atmosphere.” Hervé Bunel, whose Agence FIPS has looked after the interests of Antonio Caro, the part-owner of La Cressoniere and the owner of Almanzor, for years, singles out two qualities when asked for the key to Rouget’s success. “Jean-Claude Rouget,” he says, “knows the programme book from the beginning to the end, and then he is a master when it comes to buying horses. “Almanzor was a magnificent yearling, but then he was by a little known sire out of an unraced mare – but he was the one JeanClaude wanted.” The most surprising aspect of his success is that he started training in Pau in the 1970s as a young man and, nearly 40 years later at the age of 63, he is still based in Pau. Pau is in the south west of France close to the Pyrenees and Spain, but a long way from anywhere where there are Group 1 races – about 500 miles from either Paris

and Deauville, and further still from Ascot, Newmarket or Baden-Baden. It is hard to imagine today just how provincial racing in France was 20 years ago, let alone 40! It was impossible to bet off-course on racing outside Paris, there were no Group races or big handicaps run outside Paris, no racing outside Paris was shown on any television channel until France Courses started in 1996. It was even difficult to find the runners and results; they tended to appear in the Paris Turf three or four days late when the paper found room to slot them in on a quiet day! Other top trainers started their careers in the country, but most such as Alain de Royer Dupre moved to Chantilly once making a name for themselves. But Rouget has repeated many times that he was never tempted to leave his adopted region. This is, of course, a reason why it took him so long to reach the top. British trainer John Gosden, two years older than Rouget, won a first Group 1 in 1984, and by 1990 he was training in Newmarket for Sheikh Mohammed. Rouget did not win a Group 1 until 1994 and he had only two Group 1 winners in his stable during his first 20 years as a trainer. Rouget wanted to do it his way and had the patience to wait until the world changed, and he was able to do so. Experience is clearly

Helping trainers too Rouget takes obvious delight in the success of his protégés, friends and others who have been part of his circle – and is also prepared to support those he respects. He had a winner this year as an owner with Deauville-based Stephanie Nigge, a young trainer, and one-time work rider of Americain. A few years ago Xavier Thomas Demeaulte, a trainer based in Mont de Marsan, won a big handicap in Clairefontaine with a horse he had claimed from Rouget, beating the two favourites, who were both trained by Rouget. The first person to congratulate him afterwards was Rouget, who told Xavier that he was the best! “For some ten years now he has sent me some horses to pre-train for him,” Thomas Demeaulte explains. “Jean-Claude clearly has a fantastic eye for selecting horses at the sale and then he always wants to go right to the end of every last detail. He also has a superb team around him.”

very important when it comes to training horses and it is no coincidence that Aidan O’Brien is the only one of the five leading European Group 1 trainers who is younger than 60. However, experience doesn’t count for a great deal without the energy to put it to use. Looking from the outside Rouget’s energy is remarkable. How much time a year must he take the plane from Pau to Paris and back? And in recent years he has often left horses in Deauville, not only during the August meeting, but also during the spring to avoid repeated travelling from Pau to Paris. So he must too, go from Pau to Paris to Deauville to Paris to Pau on a regular basis.

His stable is active for 12 months every year and as well as being one of France’s leading Classic trainers, Rouget is still a leading trainer at Cagnes in February, Deauville in August and at France’s other regional meetings. Rouget is set to become France’s champion trainer for the second time this year. He may succeed in winning the Arc de Triomphe with La Cressionniere or international Group 1s with Almanzor, but whatever happens to the stable’s stars, it will be very surprising if at the end of the year the Rouget stable has not won more than 150 races yet again, and once more at a strike rate of 25 per cent or higher.

reeding often turns in cycles and this year, 40 years after his father had produced Vitiges, the highest-rated threeyear-old in England in 1976 and winner of the Champion Stakes, Thierry de la Heronniere enjoyed his biggest success to date with Volta. His homebred filly won the Group 2 Prix de Sandringham and finished third, after being supplemented, in the Group 1 Prix de Diane. Forty years apart from each other, Hervé the father and Thierry the son, have each bred a top horse at the Haras d’Ellon in Bessin, near to Bayeux in Normandy. To fully complete the circle, Volta’s fourth dam Virunga was a half-sister to Vitiges. Hervé de la Heronniere started breeding as a young man and moved his stud to Ellon at the beginning of the 1970s. He had produced good horses before, but it was during the 1970s at Ellon that he had his greatest moments as a breeder. It began with the purchase of Vale from the Wildenstein family. Vale was a daughter of Verrieres, a sprinter/miler who has more or less disappeared from pedigrees today. She she had been Group-placed herself, but had yet to produce anything high-class and was 14 when Vitiges was born. The Wildensteins had retained her Sodium filly Virunga, who was born in 1970, and in 1972 Vale was covered by the Grand Prix de Paris winner Phaeton for Heronniere to produce Vitiges.

“These were,” Heronniere remembers, “the two horses which made a real impression on me when I was an adolescent.” Virunga would have been a champion in most years, but she born in the same year as the two great French champion fillies, Allez France and Dahlia. She was second to Dahlia in the Prix Saint Alary and then finished third to Allez France and Dahlia in the Prix de Diane. Sent to York for the Yorkshire Oaks, Virunga came across another champion and finished second to Mysterious. For the Wildensteins, Virunga went onto become a top broodmare producing the stallions Vin De France and Vacarme, while her daughters and their descendants produced many other top horses, including Verveine and Valle Enchantee. If 1973 was the year Virunga distinguished herself racing against champions, two years later Vitiges became the French champion two-year-old colt winning the Group 1 Prix Robert Papin and the Group 1 Prix Morny, both times making all the running and winning easily. As a three-year-old he finished second in the 2,000 Guineas and the Jacques Le Marois for trainer Gerard Philippeau before being transfered to Peter Walwyn in England for whom he won the Champion Stakes at Newmarket. “When I started buying mares myself I was looking above all for a filly or mare from this Wildenstein ‘V’ family, and one which

was within my modest budget,” resumes Heronniere. “It was not straightforward and the first I found who looked possible was Persian Belle. She was unraced, but I had to make concessions with the money I had to spend, however her dam had produced a filly who was placed in the Irish Oaks, and her third dam was Virunga. “She is a daughter of Machiavellian, who I like as a broodmare sire and for me broodmare sires are very important. “When you look at a sales catalogue there are hundreds and thousands of names and you have to make a selection; for me it is a question of memory – when you go racing sometimes horses stand out and make a mark, and when I see these names on the page of a catalogue they jump out at me.” Heronniere bought Persian Belle out of training as an unraced three-year-old at the 2004 December Sale for 4,000gns. She was a fantastic buy from the word go as her first foal, the Lando colt Calvados Blues was sold for €130,000 as a yearling. “I spent a lot of time thinking about who to cover her with,” continues Heronniere. “She is fairly inbred herself and there are

plenty of sires she can’t go to. “Lando was the idea of an old client of mine, Dr Flechner, who knows a lot about pedigrees. Calvados Blues was always an impressive individual who reminded me a lot of Vitiges from the word go.” Calvados Blues won Group races at two and three in France before being sold to Godolphin for whom he was third in the Group 1 Dubai Sheema Classic.

S

ince her first foal Persian Belle has produced only one colt, Manduro’s Son, who was sold to Australia with a rating of 100 after winning a big handicap at Maisons-Laffitte. Sadly, he was killed in an accident before he could race. Most of Persian Belle’s daughters are now based at Ellon. Plain Vanilla, a daughter of Kendor, also had plenty of ability and was fifth in the Saint Alary before various minor injuries prevented her from fulfilling her potential. She had been bought as a yearling by David Salabi, who keeps his mares at Ellon. Heronniere and his family bought back Calvados Blue’s full-sister Ponentina,

We were doubly mad! It was foolish not to sell her and crazy to put up the money to run in the Diane whose first foal is the useful three-year-old handicapper Babel’s Book, and Vitizza, a non-winning daughter of King Best. Volta, a daughter of Siyouni was supposed to be sold at the 2014 Deauville August Sale. “She went to Deauville, but injured herself there and couldn’t go through the ring and so we brought her home,” recalls Heronniere. “I didn’t particularly want to sell, but David Salabi was very keen to have a share and he ended up buying out my mother Danielle and my brother Amaury. “Later on we were joined by Mayeul Caire, the director of the Jour de Galop. Volta was always a filly with a lot of class, and she is very feminine.” Volta may have always looked the part, but she took a race or two to understand her new job. Trained by Francis Graffard she was unplaced on her debut in Deauville in June.

She came back to be a promising second in Lyon in October only to disappoint again when third on her final start at two in Compiegne. At three Volta has been a different proposition. She made a winning debut at Saint-Cloud in March and then won a Listed race and a Group 2 over a mile at Chantilly, both times quickening away from her rivals in a few strides to win easily. Her trio of owners decided not to accept the offers made for her and instead to supplement her for the Prix de Diane, run only two weeks after her Group 2 and over an extra two and a half furlongs. “We were doubly mad!” laughs Heronniere. “It was foolish not to sell her and crazy to put up the money to run in the Diane. “But sometimes you have to take risks and for someone like me it is impossible to buy a Group winner;- you have to make

them yourself. These things are easier in a partnership, and more fun!” The Diane was a very rough race and Volta was one of several fillies to be interfered with in the run up the straight. The trouble in running didn’t stop her altogether and she ran on well to the finish to take third place less than a length and a half behind La Cressonniere. “My first reaction was to be disappointed,” says Heronniere, “as I thought she could have finished closer, but then I quickly realised that in fact I was thrilled. “Imagine how I would’ve felt if she had been unlucky and had finished fifth! She was third in the Prix de Diane, which is a prestigious race; I was relieved and delighted. “I also think there is plenty to look forward to with Volta. She came home and spent a month and a half on the farm during the winter and seeing her at Chantilly made me realise how much she has grown and changed physically this year. “She was also very cool throughout the preliminaries which with a big crowd is never easy. I imagine we will bring her back to a mile, but then I am not her racing manager and will leave that decision to her trainer.” After Volta there is more to look forward to as Persian Belle has a yearling filly by Kendargent and a foal who is a sister to Volta.

H

eronniere may have been passionate about Virunga, Vitiges and his father’s horses when he was a teenager, but he trained to be a civil engineer and for 15 years he worked in construction in France and all over the world. “I still followed what was going on,” he remembers, “but when you are in Nigeria it is not always easy to do so!” On turning 40 he decided to change

careers, returning to Normandy to help his father and then to take over Haras d’Ellon. “I was always confident that it was possible to breed top class horses at Ellon,” he reasons. “My father had a lot of success, he bred the Grand Criterium winner Dragon as well as Vitiges. The land here is excellent and our production is remarkably consistent.” For years Heronniere and his mother Danielle have been among France’s leading breeders producing between 30 and 60 winners every year. “There are 50 mares based at Ellon,” he

says, “and we are involved with about half of them. The quality of the mares is getting better and better, and it is a great help to have a partner such as David [Salabi] who really wants to build up a top class broodmare band. “I have been doing this for 20 years now and when I look at the list of my mares I think they are a pretty good group, in fact these days I find it hard to work out whom to sell to make way for new mares coming into the stud,” he laughs, adding: “This was not a problem I have always had to consider!” The other major change in the 20 years Heronniere has been breeding and selling in France is the transformation of the quality of stallions available in Normandy. “I remember the days when Lyphard, Luthier and Riverman were here,” he points out. “While for 30 years it was a desert and thanks to a misguided fiscal policy there was no proper stallion syndication in France.” He is a shareholder in Siyouni and would have liked to buy a share in Le Havre too. “They wanted the money at the beginning of the covering season,” he explains, “and I can’t buy anything until I have sold my yearlings. I think of myself as a tradesman and I can’t invest until I have sold my annual production.” These days, he believes, the atmosphere in Normandy is very positive. “The Qataris are investing in stallions and farms here,” he explains, “and being a commercial breeder now is different from how it used to be. People are ready to do things in partnerships. “For example, last year I sold a Siyouni filly, who was one of the top lots at Osarus, but I kept 12 per cent and she is now in training with Stephan Wattel. “I am a great believer in breeding in partnership, once we have partners you are stronger and most of time it is more fun too.”

rench racing and France Galop are poised on the edge of a precipice. It may not be immediately obvious to observers looking in from the outside and there are, of course, numerous features of the French racing and breeding world which are on an overwhelmingly positive trend. But the finances of France Galop are not one of them. In 2011 the PMU passed on a record €432.5 million to France Galop. At the beginning of 2014 France Galop’s reserves stood at €281 million. And yet only two years later the position is very different. France Galop made a loss of €44.6 million

Oliver Delloye has been given the task of mending France Galop’s finances Jocelyn de Moubray finds out that the wide-ranging plans include the rebuilding of Longchamp to the restructuring of the France Galop website to the reworking of the programme book in 2015 and by its own provisions is set to lose €32.8 million this year and substantial figures in the following years. Bertrand Belinguier, the president of France Galop from 2011-2015, and his management committee decided in 2015 to proceed with the redevelopment of Longchamp, France’s principal racecourse, with a projected cost of €131 million. But since 2011 the PMU’s contribution to France Galop has fallen by 7.5 per cent to about €400 million. The figures tell a simple story and unless something changes and France Galop is able to increase the PMU’s contribution or cut its own running costs, or both, by the time of the next election for

Architect’s impressions of the future Longchamp: the rebuilding of the racecourse is perceived as central to the development of horseracing in France

France Galop’s president the reserves will be running very low. It was in this context that Edouard de Rothschild was re-elected to the position he had held from 2006-2010, and that he moved swiftly to appoint Olivier Delloye as the new managing director of France Galop. Since taking up his new position in March, Delloye has not had the time to look back at his time at the Deauville sales, where he spent nearly ten years after being recruited by Philippe Augier to join the Agence Française shortly before the company was transformed into Arqana. Delloye was managing director of Arqana from its creation, and was one of the principle architects of its success. “I missed doing the yearling inspection tours this spring,” he admits, “and I felt a little strange when I was in Deauville for the Breeze Up Sale in May, but on a daily basis I don’t have the time to think about Arqana and the sales.” France Galop is a huge organisation with multiple tasks and responsibilities. It is the official body licensing all racing and breeding professionals and is responsible for the 6,500 or so thoroughbred races run in France every year. It runs the principle racecourses in Paris and Deauville and the training centres of Chantilly, Maisons Laffitte and Deauville and also oversees the PMU, overwhelmingly the largest betting organisation in France, as well as Equidia, the French racing channel. It is responsible for the racing programme,

France Galop is overseen by the Ministries of Agriculture, Interior and Budget. I had not perhaps realised how much of my time would be taken up by this! the rules of racing and their application, the distribution of prize-money and premiums, the marketing of racing and much more besides as this is a far from an exhaustive list. “It is,” Delloye explains, “a huge machine which is turning every day from January 1 to December 31.” If he has been surprised by his new job it is not by its scope, but by the exact nature of France Galop’s links with France’s government and administration. “France Galop is,” he clarifies, “overseen by the Ministries of Agriculture, Interior and Budget. I had not perhaps realised how much of my time would be taken up by this! “I have been summoned to the National Assembly to give evidence to Deputies, I have had to deal with the Cour des Comptes, (the National Audit Institution), and then something which might seem so simple, such as speeding up the process of licensing new

olivier delloye owners, is in fact a long and complicated process as you have to gain approval from all of the different bodies involved.” If Delloye and Arqana’s success made him a popular choice among France’s racing professionals he has a different background to his predecessors in the role as he had previously always worked in the private sector. Delloye spent much of his childhood in Chantilly where his father was a trainer, but, after attending HEC, one of France’s leading business schools, he spent eight years working in industry (Proctor & Gamble) and retail. He was an advertising director at Conforama, a furnishing retailer, before

Joeystarr, French rap artist and TV personality, took part in a TV campaign on behalf of France Galop

moving to the Deauville sales. As is the case after a political election, France Galop’s new president and managing director inherited both problems and possible solutions from the previous administration. The problems are, above all, financial and the solutions include building the new Longchamp, due to be ready in the autumn of 2017. The new EpiqE series is a joint marketing initiative with trotting, which brings together and promotes the 14 best Flat and trotting races of the year. “The marketing team had been working on the EpiqE series for at least a year before my arrival,” says Delloye. “I see it as the first step in a new marketing strategy and perhaps at this stage the most promising part of it is the new partnership with TF 1 [France’s most popular network channel].” The first two events held under the EpiqE banner, the Prix du Jockey-Club (G1) and the Prix de Diane (G1), could only be called a qualified success as they attracted 20,000 and 35,000 spectators respectively. “The attendance for the Jockey-Club was disappointing, but it shows that it is difficult to get the same clientele to make the journey to Chantilly twice in two weeks,” he explains, underlining how far racing has to go in France to claim a significant place in the sporting calendar.

T

he most controversial aspect of the campaign to date was using Joeystarr, a well-known French rapper turned actor and television personality, as the voice for a television campaign. There were those who felt Joeystarr’s image was not compatible, but for Delloye this was an easy decision. “I was asked to choose between two different ads and thanks to Joeystarr’s voice and commentary one was just far more alive and exciting than the other,” he says. The work at Longchamp is progressing as planned but, whether or not the site is completed on time in September 2017, Delloye is looking towards the spring of 2018 when the new racecourse will be fully functional and ready to help transform racing in France. “It is,” he says, “going to be an exciting and fantastic racecourse, but it is a very complicated project. “On a big raceday thousands of people come together to work in the same place,

The PMU handles 90 per cent of betting on racing. It is finding it difficult to halt the decline in the share of racing in the face of strong competition

The old stand has already been knocked down and the footings are in place for the new facility

from the stable staff to the jockeys, the PMU operators and the journalists, broadcasters and those working on the technical side. It will take time for all these people to find their bearings and methods in new surroundings. “The new Longchamp is a great opportunity and gives us the chance to offer a new spectacle and attract a different type of customer. I expect it to help us attract new sponsors and partnerships and I look forward to innovations such as evening racing in the Bois de Boulogne.” If marketing and Longchamp represent the future of France racing, for the time being, Delloye’s day-to-day priority is elsewhere. “I spend most of time,” he explains, “looking for ways to make economies and working out how to offer the same service and quality in a more cost efficient manner.” Delloye and Rothschild have stated that they want to maintain the current level of prize-money and premiums, a total of about €280 million a year. If the budget is to return to something like equilibrium then France Galop will have reduce its costs, while trying to change the downward trend in betting on racing. “The PMU handles 90 per cent of betting on racing,” he explains. “It is finding it difficult to halt the decline in the share of racing in the face of strong competition from

sports betting both online and in betting outlets. “Up to the end of May racing turnover was down one per cent this year and even if there was growth in international betting we have

to work to change this trend. “We can make economies to reduce the deficit, but if we are to return to an equilibrium between France Galop’s receipts and outgoings we need to change this trend. It is no longer possible to offer more races or even more international races, we need to attract new customers.” In the speech Edouard de Rothchild made to the committee of France Galop before his election last December he outlined three principle objectives – to reverse the trend in the PMU’s racing turnover, halt the decline in the number of French owners, and, third, to change the image and standing of racing, while at the same time maintaining the standard of racing and breeding in France.

Longchamp is “going to be an exciting and fantastic racecourse, but it is a very complicated project”

Longchamp racecourse is integral part of the Bois de Bologne and the Parisian landscape

None are easy tasks, but without the first the other objectives become almost impossible. Two innovations are scheduled for September as a first step towards this elusive goal.

I

n October, France Galop will have an entirely new website, and one which is adapted to use on smart phones. France Galop’s website is far more important than a simple promotional excerise. It is an essential tool for all professionals and it is by far the best source of information for anybody interested in racing and betting in France where there is no private publication with the scope of the Racing Post. As de Rothschild explained the current France Galop website would have appeared modern and constructive ten or 15 years ago, but it now has many failings, not least that it barely works on most smart phones. The other innovation due for the autumn is the programme of racing in France. “We have made changes to the programme of two-year-olds from September,” says Delloye. “If the new system works well, we will

60

www.internationalthoroughbred.net

We need to maintain the races which make the selection of the best horses, but overall we need to attract more runners in races for two and three-year-olds

continue in the same direction and change the programme for three-year-olds and older horses from next year. “We need to maintain the races which make the selection of the best horses, but overall we need to attract more runners in races for two and three-year-olds. “Every race with fewer than eight runners is a negative for bettors. We don’t want to change too much too fast, we are not suddenly going to run predominantly handicaps, and we have to find a new balance. “However, all conditions races which are not attracting competitive fields have to be closely looked at. “The new system will be different from the current one with its Fs, Ds and Bs and designed to produce more runners and more competitive races. “We can’t hope to continue milking our current clients. We will work with the PMU, with a new programme to create new clients, yet maintaining the standard of racing and the selection of the best horses.” If the programme and the website are the big changes on the horizon there are numerous smaller initiatives, part of what Delloye calls a “new culture” to encourage start ups and new ways of looking at things. One of the new sites due to be launched is FrenchBlackType.com, which will outline and explain the French Group and Listed races, in English. The FRBC has also started to help and subsidise foreign-trained horses coming to race in France’s best races. “We helped with A Shin Hikari’s visit to run in the Prix d’Ispahan,” Delloye says, “and we tried to persuade Tepin’s owners to come and race their champion in France on her way back to the US. “The best international stars are big draws and particularly this year when, for the first time, the Japanese will be betting into the pool on the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.” In retrospect, a sales company in Normandy and Paris must seem to have been a simple project. However, Delloye’s ten years with Arqana proved beyond any doubt that energy and ideas are not what France Galop’s direction are going to be lacking over the months and years to come. “All change is,” Delloye concludes, “sensitive and difficult, but that cannot be a reason not to adapt. We have to create a new model for the benefit of those who bet and for racing professionals.”

S

ix years after it began the revival in France’s stallions continues to surprise any objective observer. In its own way it is a story of completely unexpected sporting success to rival any of the other more famous recent examples. The first stallion to begin the re-emergence

of the French stallion industry was Kendargent, who has risen from covering a few ordinary mares at €500 or so in 2008 to now standing at €16,000. His progress seemingly started a chain through 2010, 2011 and 2012 in which three French-based stallions all produced a Classic winner from their first crop. Le Havre, who stood at €5,000 in 2010,

Haras d’Etreham (pictured) bred Almanzor out of the ex-Aga Khan mare Darkova. The farm sold him for €100,000 as a yearling – a very strong price then for one by the stallion who only has 15 named foals in his first crop

Siyouni, a €7,000 stallion in 2011, and Wootton Bassett, who cost €6,000 in 2012. It has to be said that none of these four would have been given much of a chance as a stallion in any other major breeding European country. In the future, hopefully it will be possible to say that France’s breeding industry has fallen into a happily virtuous circle – the success of


wootton bassett its stallions attracting new and better mares and so creating more new and successful stallions. But all that is in the future – no new mares were attracted to France before 2014, at the earliest. For the time being it just looks like a remarkable cluster of unlikely events. Like any other variable a stallion’s production is likely to revert towards the

average, so a sire who has a particularly good first crop is likely to do less well over the following years, while one whose first crop disappoints will often do better. Luck or chance plays a role in any statistical variable and it is only over the long run that it is possible to get an idea of a sire’s true value. An above-average stallion or an excellent

stallion is one whose results are better than average or excellent consistently, year after year. Kendargent has fulfilled this criteria, as has Le Havre with two dual Classic-winning fillies in his first three crops. Siyouni’s second crop of three-year-olds have yet to win a Group 1, but they include three of the best fillies in France: Volta, Trixia and Spectre. For Wootton Bassett this is still in the future, but the Haras d’Etreham’s sire has already made a remarkable start. “When he first retired to stud, Wootton Bassett was more or less ignored by breeders,” remembers Nicolas de Chambure, Etreham’s stud manager. “There are only 15 named foals in his first crop and about half of these were either bred by Etreham or are out of mares who we covered and sold in-foal to him. “However, from the moment his first foals went to the sales, things changed and from 2014 he has been far busier.” Etreham took four foals by Wootton Bassett to the 2013 Arqana December Sale and they averaged over €50,000. The good results for Etreham and its new stallion continued the following year – the four yearlings taken to the August Yearling Sale averaged €75,000 with Almanzor sold to Jean-Claude Rouget for €100,000 and the filly Elide, still a maiden but with an official rating of 90, making €130,000 bought by Patricia Boutin.

SANDOWN PARK AUGUST DOUBLE HEADER Sandown Park again plays host to the HH Sheikh Mansoor Global Arabian Horse Flat Racing Festival which is sponsoring the majority of the two-day familyorientated meeting on the 19 and 20 August. As well as top class Thoroughbred racing, there will be the HH Sheik Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan Cup, a Group 1 for Purebred Arabians on Saturday, supported by the UK leg of the HH Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak Ladies World Championships on Friday. The ÂŁ70,000 Sheikh Zayed Cup has received an outstanding list of top quality entries at the first stage. They include Kalino (left with Olivier Peslier), who won the 1.2 million Euro Jewel Crown (Group 1 PA), the world's richest Arabian race, last year in Abu Dhabi. Trained by Alban de Mieulle for HH Sheikh Abdullah bin Khalifa Al Thani, he is joined by stablemate, TM Thunder Struck. A dual Group 2 winner

JOCKEY FILE: JOANNA MASON Leading amateur jockey Joanna Mason was invited to ride in the HH Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak Ladies World Championship series in Poland in 2013. She never sat on an Arabian racehorse again until this year in the same series in Houston, Texas . This was her comeback ride after her remarkable recovery from breaking her back in two places last year.

in Qatar over the winter, he came agonisingly close to winning the 2016 Dubai Kahayla Classic (Gr 1PA), the opening race on Dubai World Cup night, when just headed on the line. The seven overseas entries also include the 2015 Shadwell UK Derby winner, Mahess Du Soliel. He became the first British bred winner in over 10 years to claim that race which was run last September on Newmarket's Rowley Mile. The HH Sheikha Fatima Ladies race is part of a global series allowing Professional and Amateur riders the opportunity to compete against each other, riding Purebred Arabians. So far the competition has travelled to Oman, Australia, St Moritz, America, Bahrain, France, Morocco, Italy, Sweden, the Netherlands and Belgium. The winning riders are then invited to compete in the final, held in Abu Dhabi in November.

SIXTH CLARENDON INTERNATIONAL STAKES FOR SMART?

Since then she has embraced Arabian racing in the UK and currently heads the ARO Lady Riders Championship with three wins and three seconds so far this season. Granddaughter of renown Thoroughbred Trainer Mick Easterby, she was the recipient of the Retraining of Racehorses Special Recognition Award at this years' Godolphin Stud and Stable Staff Awards.

Trainer Julian Smart could bid for an incredible sixth consecutive win in the Clarendon International Stakes (Group 2 PA), sponsored by his former employers, the Royal Cavalry of Oman, at Newbury on 13 August. Having won last year with Ba'asil, his other winners were Aden, Al Anga and the remarkable one-eyed Aziz, who won twice. The ratings achieved by these horses in the International Classifications has meant that the race was elevated to Group 2 status last year.

he has used satellite yards of Oliver Sherwood and Paul Cole to prepare his string for many Group 1 successes both here and abroad. These include three Qatar Arabian World Cup's at Longchamp (following the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe) with Areej, Mkeefa and Djainka Des Forges.

Currently private trainer to HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Thani in Qatar, he is spending this summer training from France. He is no stranger to travelling his horses across the Channel though, as in recent years Lambourn was his base. There

wootton bassett “€100,000 was a big price for Almanzor, he was after all by a new stallion out of a mare who hadn’t raced, but he was the best colt from Wootton Bassett’s first crop,” says de Chambure. These sales results made sure that breeders began to take the son of Iffraaj seriously – he has 40 yearlings in 2016 and covered 70 mares in 2015 and 130 this year. “We sold a few shares over the winter,” de Chambure explains, “and more after the Jockey-Club. It is a 50-share syndicate and there are now 20 different shareholders with Etreham still holding a majority.” It is obviously remarkable for a €6,000 stallion to produce a Classic winner from a first crop of only 15 named foals. By mid-June seven of these foals were winners and, aside from Almanzor, several others look to be close to earning black-type. Elide has been placed in high-class Paris maidens, Weldra was fourth in a Listed race at Saint-Cloud after winning at Cagnes Sur Mer. But perhaps the best of the other

Etreham bought Almanzor’s dam’s half-sister last winter. She’s in-foal to Wootton Bassett, the stud keen to support its mares and its promising sire

Wootton Bassett’s is the filly Do Re Me Fa Sol. She is trained by Philippe Decouz in Lyon, and won two of her last three starts over 1m3f and has an official rating of 92. At the beginning of July she finished a short-neck and a head third in the Prix de Malleret (G2) behind Al Wathna, a €72,000 yearling owned by Al Shaqab Racing, and Impressionist. A filly by Montjeu she was bred by Whisperview Trading and bought by Eurowest Bloodstock for 130,000gns at Tattersalls October Yearling Sale. De Chambure is confident about Wootton Bassett’s future. “Jean-Claude Rouget is very happy with Almanzor’s sister Troarn whom he bought for €110,000,” he explains, adding: “He thinks she is more precocious than her brother! Richard Hannon has a very promising two-year-old colt called Hakeem. “Wootton Bassett doesn’t have many twoyear-olds, but it looks as if there are some good ones and then from next year he will have more runners.” Wootton Bassett himself was bred by Melba Bryce’s Laundry Cottage Stud bought

What drew us to Wootton Bassett was clearly the fact that he was precocious and fast, but it is fantastic that his progeny can stay further as a yearling at Doncaster by Bobby O’Ryan for £46,000. He became an unbeaten two-year-old champion winning all five of his juvenile starts for Richard Fahey and owners Frank Brady and The Cosmic Cases, culminating in victory in the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardère (G1) ahead of Tin Horse. “What drew us to Wootton Bassett was

clearly the fact that he was precocious and fast, but it is fantastic that his progeny can stay further than he did himself as it opens up more opportunities,” reports Chambure. “Wootton Bassett won the two big sales races in York and Doncaster in August and September before coming to Longchamp in October and so we knew he was a very tough horse with a good temperament and he is passing on this mental and physical toughness,” adds de Chambure. For Etreham, Almanzor’s victory in the Prix du Jockey-Club (G1) was a big moment. It was the de Chambure family’s first Classic victory as a breeder since Anabaa Blue won the Classic in 2001. The colt’s dam Darkova was bought for only €16,000 from the Aga Khan at the Arqana December Sale in 2011 and the stud bought her Manduro half-sister Darnella for €32,000 at the Goffs November Sale last year. Darkova is now in-foal to Le Havre and Darnella to Wootton Bassett. “We plan to keep them both – as breeders we have to look to the future,” says de Chambure.

pc boudot Pierre-Charles Boudot: has, on average, been 50 winners clear on the French jockeys’ table throughout the 2016 season

Totally

PC

Liz Price meets jockey Pierre-Charles Boudot: a graduate of the André Fabre academy, 2015’s joint-champion, clear leader this season and a force to be reckoned with

A

ny apprentice who starts out at the André Fabre school of excellence in Chantilly can be assured of one thing: he will be sitting on some of the best-bred thoroughbreds in the world. However, if he thought that this apprenticeship would automatically result in a position as Fabre’s number one jockey, then he needs to think again. In fact, during Fabre’s more than 31year reign as France’s top trainer, he has hardly ever relied on the services of his own apprentices. Indeed, the likes of Thierry Jarnet, Olivier Peslier and Christophe Soumillon, who all enjoyed highly successful and long relationships with the seven-time Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe-winning trainer, were all apprenticed to different trainers. Yet things changed in 2003 with the arrival of Maxime Guyon, who in 2009 would become the first Fabre apprentice to take over the coveted number one spot at his yard. Two years later, Guyon was joined by Mickaël Barzalona, who would go on to become the

retained jockey for Godolphin in France, while 2006 saw the arrival of apprentice Pierre-Charles Boudot. With two jockeys already riding for Fabre, no one expected Pierre-Charles, or PC as he is widely known, to keep a foothold in the yard once he lost his claim. That target was acheived in July 2010, yet as the weeks progressed, Fabre showed no sign of reducing his rides and only two months later entrusted him on board Brigantin in the Group 3 Prix de Lutèce. Fabre further confirmed his confidence in the young rider when Boudot kept the ride on Brigantin in the Ascot Gold Cup (G1), the pair finishing third behind Fame And Glory. Boudot has slipped seamlessly into the role of being a “Fabre jockey”, without creating any fuss, friction or jealousy, which often accompanies such a position. “No,” he smiles. “There have never been any problems, quite the opposite really. I grew up alongside Maxime and Mickael, who have always helped me and given me good

pc boudot advice. I have never been jealous of them, as I always knew that I needed to improve and that my time would come. It’s always been a pleasure to work with them and we all get on really well.” Friends with Guyon, and even closer friends with Barzalona, Boudot is essentially a very likeable jockey who works extremely hard and whose efforts were rewarded in 2015 when he lifted the French jockey’s championship with 179 winners. “I was not the only one to win it!” he points out quickly. “You know I shared it with Christophe Soumillon.” It is typical of PC not to put himself first. Maybe the sudden and unexpected loss of his father at the age of 14 has made him so accepting of what destiny has in store for him. He has never been aggressive in his search for opportunities and it would never occur to him to jock off another jockey just to get on a better chance. Yet, it would be wrong to underestimate his ambitions. He is extremely driven, which became obvious last year when midway through the season he decided to go after the jockeys’ title.

I grew up with horses, so there was never really any question about what I wanted to do and obviously being at the top of your profession is what everyone strives for “I grew up with horses, so there was never really any question about what I wanted to do and obviously being at the top of your profession is what everyone strives for,” he explains. “My father was a trainer at Paray le Monial, where I was born, and I started riding in pony races when I was ten years old. “It was great – my father came with me to the different racecourses and I won quite a few pony races. My father knew André Fabre and when I was 14 he asked if I could spend a week at his yard to see if I was any good.

Left, trainer André Fabre and his wife Elizabeth provided Boudet with invaluable support through a very difficult time in the young jockey’s life after his father died. The support continued after PC lost his claim, the leading French trainer using him on his runners – and his good ones too

“So that is what happened and when I then entered the school of Moulin à Vent at Chantilly to become an apprentice jockey, I was sent back to Fabre.” Any 14-year-old would find leaving home a daunting experience, but for PC it became even more traumatic when four months later his father unexpectedly died following a short battle with cancer. “It was really hard in the beginning,” he remembers. “Especially since the cancer was so brutal. He was only ill for 20 days before he passed away. It was difficult, but luckily André Fabre and his wife Elisabeth were extremely supportive and helped me a lot during that time.” While the image of a consoling father figure does not immediately spring to mind when talking about Fabre, the Chantilly handler is nevertheless been fiercely protective of the trio of jockeys who currently work for him, a fact Boudot confirms. “They were both there for me, the boss and his wife, and they gave me a lot of strength,” he remembers, before adding with a laugh: “Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like he took over the role of my father! It wasn’t like I was


pc boudot living with them or eating with them every day, but I was working every day with his wife Elizabeth and they were there for me when I needed them. “That is something I will never forget. I also had good friends at school and obviously I still had my mum. I was lucky, because my sister was working in Paris and she also looked out for me. We are all very close.” There is certainly a very vulnerable side to this jockey who, at nearly 5ft8in, is definitely not the ideal height for someone who wants to be a jockey. “Yes,” he says a bit regretfully, “my height has not always made things easy and keeping my weight down has always been a struggle.” There was a time, shortly after he won his first Group 1 race with Gallante in the 2014 Juddmonte Grand Prix de Paris, everyone thought he would need to give up or at least switch codes. But, what the French racing world Right, the first British Group 1 winner for PC came courtesy of Esoterique’s victory in the Sun Chariot Stakes last October, below left, Maxime Guyon, and, below, Mickaël Barcelona, friends and rivals in the Fabre yard

pc boudot discovered, in typical PC Boudot fashion, he dug deep. Rather than give up on his career, he got himself a nutritionist and together with his agent started to work out a programme that would allow him to control his weight. “The key to keeping the weight down is to ride every day,” he explains with conviction. “I ride in the morning and I ride every day in several races. On top of that, I also go running three times a week. I have also cut out really fatty foods and so now I can ride at 55kg.” Boudot is in a good place right now. It shows on his face and it shows even more on the racecourse where he brings home winner after winner. He might have ended the 2015 season with 179 winners, but already by June he had bagged 118 winners, with an average advantage of 50 winners ahead of his nearest rival Soumillon. Bar any injury, the French jockeys’ championship should be his and only his this year. He is completely fired up at present and he is rightfully proud when he says: “I haven’t stopped since the beginning of the year. I go where I am asked to go and I can’t wait to get on another horse. I don’t know what has

It wasn’t really my goal to go for the championship. This year, though I have made it my ambition. Every time I win I think of my Dad really changed, but I think I improved my riding style, while my agent does some great work and, obviously, I have a great boss in Fabre, who continues to trust me.” That trust has already resulted in some memorable victories, including a first British Group 1 success when he steered the Fabretrained mare Esoterique to win the Sun Chariot Stakes (G1) at Newmarket. It was his third Group 1 success with the Edouard de Rothschild-owned mare, who had

previously won the Prix Rothshild and the Prix Jacques le Marois. “I think my father is looking after me,” he adds, fidgeting with the saddle that he has just weighed out with, waiting for it to be picked up by the trainer. “It wasn’t really my goal to go for the championship. It just happened last year. This year, though I have made it my ambition. Every time I win I think of my Dad. He is the one who gives me my strength. I don’t ever give up and I always work hard.” PC Boudot might have initially been the third jockey for Fabre, but right now his career is all about more “firsts” than “thirds”. There might come a time where he will need to take a breather, as he is pushing himself hard, but for the time being everything is working in his favour. “Things are good,” he laughs as he puts on his hat and grabs his stick. “It’s all about the rhythm and I have found the one that works for me, so long may it continue!” And off he goes, ready to add winner 119 of a season to his growing tally that shows no end of slowing down.

“

Promising stallions Alderflug and Soldier Hollow rule the German sires’ list

O

ne of the principal explanations for the success of German breeding is the unchanging nature of German racing. In every other important racing and breeding country the structure and pattern of major races has changed beyond all recognition.

Breeding trends and the significance of particular races and the distances they are run over and the composition of the overall programme, are all important factors for breeders and all seem to be in more or less constant flux in England, France and the US. In Germany, little has changed over the last 40 years. The important races are run

Not all Deutsches Derby winners are good sires, but nearly all have had a major influence on German breeding

over 1m4f, and by far the most important of these is the Group 1 Deutsches Derby run over 1m4f in Hamburg in early July. Not all Deutsches Derby are good sires, but nearly all have had a major influence on German breeding and its success all over the world. The important German sires all either won or were placed in the race.

In The Wings, who was from the first crop of Sadler’s Wells, is leaving a fine legacy on the German bloodstock industry

german stallions Surumu, Kongisstuhl, Acatenango and Lando all were winners, while Monsun and Lomitas finished second. It may be that this system of selection, which has proved to be so successful is on the verge of changing. The next generation of German sires, who will have their first yearlings on offer at this year’s Baden-Baden sale, includes the Derby winner Pastorius, but also the two prominent new sires, Maxios and Reliable Man. Both have a different background and were at their best over distances from a mile to 1m2f.

Soldier Hollow and Adlerflug are not exactly young stallions, but it takes time to make a mark with relatively small crops

We will not know for sure which if any of these three will be established as leading sires until 2020, but in the meantime there are already two German sires ready to maintain the country’s influence on middle-distance racing all over the world. At 16 and 12 years old, Soldier Hollow and Adlerflug are not exactly young stallions, but it takes time to make a mark with relatively small crops of foals and these two sons of In The Wings have proved themselves capable of consistently producing Group-quality horses season after season. The ante-post betting for the German Classic was dominated by their progeny, and although

...both stallions are outcrosses to the dominant strains in Germany neither sire was responsible for the winner, the second was Savoir Vivre (Alderflug) and the third was Soldier Hollow’s son Dschingis Secret. Adlerflug has only 21 three-year-olds and yet they include Savoir Vivre as well as the Group 2-winning filly Meergorl, who is amongst the favourites for the the Diana. Soldier Hollow has, from 56 three-year-olds, the Groupwinning colts Wai Key Star and Parthenius. There is also the Derby third Dschingis Secret, as well as three of the four joint-favourites for the Diana – Serienholde, Pagella and Kasalla.

until after Singspiel’s brilliant five-year-old career in 1997 and it was at its highest at €60,000 in 2004, the year In The Wings died. In England and Ireland In The Wings did not leave a great mark. Singspiel had his moments as a stallion, but his best son is the gelding Solow and his daughters have been proved to be better breeding prospects than his sons.

Outcrosses the key to German success

In Germany it has been different. As well as Singspiel, who was rated 130, In The Wings’s best sons include eight others with Racing Post ratings higher than 120, three of whom have become successful sires in Germany – Adlerflug 123, Mamool 122 and Soldier Hollow 121. Mamool had great success from few opportunities in Germany before moving

small and compact for a son of Sadler’s Wells and both Adlerflug and Soldier Hollow are on the smaller side for a stallion. Adlerflug is still slight of build and often reproduces this, and at just 15.2hh Soldier Hollow is not a big horse either. There are plenty of big strong mares in Germany. And both stallions are outcrosses to the dominant strains in Germany, which was not, of course, the case for In The Wings’s sons who stood in England or Ireland. Adlerflug is out of a Last Tycoon mare and his second dam is a sister to Allegretta, the dam of Urban Sea and second dam of Galileo and Sea The Stars. Soldier Hollow was bred in England at Car Colston Stud and is out of a Common Grounds mare. He, too, comes from a famous stallion family as his fourth dam is a sister to Special, the dam

One of Sadler’s Wells’s first

In The Wings was bred by Sheikh Mohammed and comes from the first crop of Sadler’s Wells. Trained by André Fabre he must have been one of the great Coolmore sire’s first winners as he made a winning debut over 6f at Chantilly – on June 17! After winning a Listed race in Deauville at the end of August he was then off the track for a year, missing his Classic season through injury. He returned as a four-year-old to win the Coronation Cup and the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud and the Breeders’ Cup Turf. Despite producing Singspiel in his first crop, In The Wings took time to acquire a commercial following as a stallion. His fee at Kildangan Stud in Ireland didn’t reach five figures

to Ireland this year to stud as a jumping sire. His best son Lucas Cranach very nearly won the Melbourne Cup and he produced other Group winners, including Early Morning, Orsino and Lips Poison. And now Soldier Hollow and Adlerflug have joined the ranks of confirmed international sires. In The Wings’s two sons are going to be Germany’s leading sires and will cover some of the best middle-distance mares in the country, a fact which is more interesting than any speculation as to why this should be the case. Stallions are not a success on their own and the best tend to have access to the best pool of mares. For the two sons of In The Wings there are possible explanations for their success in their appearance and their pedigrees. In The Wings was unusually

of Nureyev and grand-dam of Sadler’s Wells. Both Adlerflug and Soldier Hollow have had success when crossed with Germany’s dominant sire lines with good horses out of mares by Monsun, Sternkonig, Lando and Tiger Hill among others.

Exceptional results for Adlerflug

For decades the success of German breeding has been built on the result of the Deutsches Derby, but surprisingly German Derby winners have often struggled to attract support when they retire to stud in Germany Adlerflug has only 90 foals in his first combined three crops and has always stood at €5,500. He is a relation of Europe’s dominant sire and won both his Derby and a Group 1 at four by 7l, and was only narrowly beaten into fourth place in the Group 1 Prix Ganay on his only start at five, and yet he has not, until this year, been a popular stallion. Each of his first three crops have returned exceptional

results. From 38 foals in his first crop Adlerflug produced the Group 1 winner Ito and the French Group 3 winner Wunder. The 30 foals in his second crop include two Group 2 winners in Iquitos and Shivajia. From only 21 three-year-olds this year he has had the Group 2 winner Mergor, and the Group 2-placed Gambissara, as well as the useful colts Savoir Vivre and Moonshiner.

Soldier Hollow on the up

Soldier Hollow was no more

german stallions popular in his early years at stud. He stood at between €5,000 and €6,500 in his first four years when he was based at Gestüt Röttgen and produced a total of 110 named foals. Soldier Hollow’s results have been consistently excellent and this year’s 56 three-year-olds, produced at €6,000 when he moved to Gestüt Auenquelle, look to be better still. He produced international Group 1 winners in each of his first two crops – Pastorius, winner of the Deutsches Derby and the Prix Ganay, and Our Ivanhowe, a Group 1 winner in Germany and now Australia after success in May’s Doomben Cup. His first four crops also included high-class two-yearolds, older horses, sprinters and milers, including Dessau, Kassiano, Salon Soldier, Old Pal, Ars Nova, Bullish Smart, Nymeria and Shadow Sadness. His fourth crop is his biggest to date and by mid-June eight of the 56 were already black-type performers. There is hardly a black-type race for three-year-

olds in Germany in which there are not two or three of Soldier Hollow’s progeny in the field. Like his sire, Soldier Hollow was a promising two-year-old, who missed his Classic season due to injury. He came back to win his first Group 1 in Italy at four over 1m2f, and then carried on racing at the highest level winning two more Group 1s as a five-year-old, beating Manduro to win the Group 2 Prix Dollar at six, and winning his fourth and final Group 1 as a seven-year-old. He was clearly very tough and although he was first post the post in a Group 2 over 1m3f, he was at his best over 1m2f and had an exceptional turn of foot. All attributes which now he is a proven sire should enable his progeny to succeed all over Europe and further afield. His fee increased to €15,000 in 2015 and Soldier Hollow will have more and better bred crops to run for him over the coming seasons.

Are genetically modified feeds safe for horses?

T

he most common form of plant genetic engineering is called “transgenic modification�. A transgenic plant contains one or more genes artificially inserted using recombinant DNA technology. Recombinant DNA molecules are DNA molecules formed by laboratory methods of genetic recombination (such

as molecular cloning) to bring together genetic material from multiple sources, creating sequences that would not otherwise be found in the genome. The inserted gene sequence may come from another unrelated plant, or from a completely different species such

as a bacterium. Extensive safety testing is required by government agencies with this type of modification. Scientists use genetic engineering to instill desirable characteristics in plants. For example, tobacco, corn, rice, and many other crops have been engineered to express encoding for insecticidal proteins from Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt). Others have been modified for herbicide resistance, which allows the herbicides, such as glyphosate and dicamba, to be used on weeds without injuring crops. Other engineering efforts boost the nutritional value of crops, such as increasing the beta-carotene, or vitamin A, in rice and improving the fatty acid profile in soybeans.

Insect resistance

The classic example of genetic engineering for insecticide resistance involves Bt corn. Pesticide-resistant corn has been engineered to produce a protein, known as Cry, isolated from the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt). The Cry protein is activated by an enzyme found in the gut of specific insects. Cry then binds to the surface of cells in the digestive system, killing the insect. These enzymes are not found in the guts of animals, so Cry is not toxic to animals. The gene used in Bt corn produces a protein that kills Lepidoptera larvae, in particular European corn borer. Bt spores have been sprayed on crops for decades and are still widely used to control pests by organic farmers. Interestingly, as more and more Bt corn is planted, farmers use less insecticides. In fact, overall insecticide use in the US has declined 0.6 per cent per year

“

The soybean (left) is the most widely grown GM crop, and, in the US, 93 per cent of all corn grown is a GM based

The vast majority of corn, cotton, soybeans and alfalfa grown in the US is GM

since the introduction of Bt corn into the marketplace.

Herbicide tolerance

Certain plants have been modified so that producers can routinely use herbicides without fear of destroying crops. These are called herbicide tolerant (Ht) crops. An example of this is Roundup Ready soybeans, a series of genetically engineered varieties of glyphosate-resistant soybeans produced by Monsanto, a multinational agrochemical and agricultural biotechnology corporation. Glyphosate kills plants by interfering with an enzyme (EPSPS) needed by plants for the

synthesis of the essential amino acids phenylalanine, tyrosine, and tryptophan. EPSPS is not present in animals, which instead consume these aromatic amino acids from their diets. Ht plants contain a bacterially derived form of EPSPS that is not affected by glyphosate. On the downside, however, plant herbicide resistance is a mounting problem, as more and more weeds are becoming immune to the effects of glyphosate. New GM crops have been created to resist other herbicides, namely 2,4-D and dicamba, and genes are being stacked against multiple herbicides. To exacerbate the problem, no new herbicides are being developed.

Prevalence of GM

Genetically modified (GM) crops have been part of the agricultural landscape since 1994, when the first genetically modified food, the Flavr Savr tomato produced by Calgene, was introduced into

the marketplace and licensed for human consumption. The tomato was genetically modified to have a longer shelf life by inserting a specific gene that delayed ripening. A year later, the first pesticide-resistant crops were approved in the US, including Bt potato, corn, and cotton varieties. Soon afterward, Ht cotton and Roundup Ready soybeans were developed. The vast majority of corn, cotton, soybeans and alfalfa grown in the US is GM. In 2013, 93 per cent of all corn, 90 per cent of all cotton, 93 per cent of all soybeans, 95 per cent of all sugar beet, and 90 per cent of all alfalfa were GM. Much of this GM harvest is exported to the European Union (EU). In fact, about 80 per cent of all livestock feed in the EU is imported. Specifically, 98 per cent of all soybean meal is imported from the US, Brazil, or Argentina, and 80 per cent of this imported soybean meal intended for animal use is GM.

Are genetically engineered feeds safe for horses?

Though no studies have been completed on horses specifically, multiple studies have been performed on animals in order to gauge the effects of diets that contain GM ingredients. In 2012, researchers published a review article in the Journal of Consumer Protection and Food Safety that assessed the nutritional effects and safety of animal feeds made from GM plants (Flachowsky et al.). More than 135 studies were taken into consideration in multiple types of animals, including beef cattle, dairy cattle, pigs, poultry, and other animals and fish. The authors found “no unintended effects in

GM plants are nutritionally equivalent to their non-GM counterparts and can be safely used in food and feed

composition (except lower mycotoxin concentrations in Bt plants)” among cattle and pigs, and “no significant differences in digestibility and poultry health as well as no biological relevant unintended effects on performance of animals and composition of food of poultry origin.” A review article was published in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology, titled “Assessment of the Health Impact of GM Plant Diets in Long-term and Multigenerational Animal Feeding Trials: A Literature Review” (Snella et al., 2012). The objective of this systematic review was to collect data

concerning the effects of diets containing GM corn, potato, soybean, rice, or triticale on animal health. Of the 24 studies reviewed, 12 were classified as long term (more than 90 days and up to two years in duration), and 12 were multigenerational (two to five generations). Many parameters were examined, including biochemical analyses, histological examination of specific organs, hematology, and the detection of transgenic DNA. The authors summed up their findings: “The studies reviewed present evidence to show that GM plants are nutritionally

The Flavr Savr tomato, with a longer shelf life, was the first GM crop to appear in our supermarkets in 1994, but it was only produced through to 1997 due to high production costs and a lack of profitability

equivalent to their non-GM counterparts and can be safely used in food and feed.”

Conclusion

GM crops represent an important segment of worldwide agriculture, as evidenced by the amount of land used to cultivate them and their widespread use in both human and animal industries. Transgenetic modification allows desirable traits to be imparted to plants, primary of which are insect resistance (Bt technology) and herbicide tolerance (Ht or Roundup Ready innovation). Because of these technologies, crop losses due to pests have been reduced and insecticide use continues to fall. Genetic modification of plants through Bt and Ht methods is heavily regulated by government agencies. While no studies have been conducted specifically in horses, the preponderance of scientific evidence suggests that GM feeds and foods are safe for humans and animals. References

At the top of the pyramid, at the beginning of July, the owner’s trainer Charlie Appleby produced Hawkbill to win the Group 1 Coral Eclipse, as well as the Group 2 Lancashire Oaks winner Endless Time before Boynton, a

92

colt by More Than Ready, won the Group 2 Superlative Stakes victory at Newmarket. That same day Birchwood, trained by Richard Fahey, galloped to Listed success at Chester, and Timeless Flight, a son of Darley’s first-season sire Helmet won on his second start. Earlier through that week the Godolphin dispersal sale of broodmares and fillies at the Tattersalls July Sale lit up proceedings netting the owner

returns of over 7.2 million guineas. But it was two winners for Sheikh Mohammed, within a day of each other and away from the mainstream TV spotlight, who might be cause for most excitement, both horses picking up maiden successes. One was a 100,000gns purchase and twoyear-old Newmarket 7f maiden winner by progressive Tally-Ho Stud sire Dark Angel, the other by Darley’s best-ever stallion and

worldwide influence, Dubawi. At Newbury, Frontiersman, a three-year-old son of the brilliant mare Ouija Board, picked up the 1m2f Compton Beauchamp Estates Maiden on his second racecourse start by a length and a half from Makfi’s son Makzeem. It was an important success for the firm. Amazingly, a reflection of the speed of passing time, Ouija Board is already dam of six live foals, unfortunately slipping her

Cape Cross-Selection Board (Welsh Pageant)

prospective 2015 foal by Galileo and then barren to Galileo for this year. The three-year-old Frontiersman is her most recent produce and was produced in 2013 after she aborted to her 2011 covering by Dubawi. The decision by Stanley House Stud to send their star mare back to Ireland for a Galileo cover for the last two years after visiting Dubawi was an obvious move – Ouija Board’s 2011 foal Australia became one of the best of his generation at three in 2014. He finished third in the 2,000 Guineas, won the Epsom Derby, the Irish Derby, the Juddmonte International and finished second in the Irish Champion Stakes. He won over £2 million in earnings and was BHA rated 127 He now has first crop foals on the ground having retired to stud at Coolmore at a fee of €50,000. Coolmore purchased him at Tattersalls October Book 1 Sale for 525,000gns, however Frontiersman never made it to a sale and he was bought privately by Godolphin, the organisation keen to pick up the best of Dubawi’s stock, and a key yearling of 2014, without the threat of market competition – despite the fact that Coolmore would have likely abstained from bidding for a colt by a stallion belonging to the rival firm. The year was something of a back-up season for the son of Dubai Millennium, a year confirming that he is a sire who can consistently produce worldclass performers and rightly challenge Galileo for the title as “the best stallion in the world”. In 2014, Night Of Thunder won the 2,000 Guineas, Lucky

Nine was successful for the second year in succession in the KrisFlyer International Sprint (G1), Prince Bishop won the Dubai World Cup (G1), Postponed hinted at what was to come with success in the Great Voltigeur (G2), while Al Kazeem backed up his previous year’s Royal Ascot Prince of Wales’s Stakes victory with a Group 2 success. Although over ten years has passed since her own racecourse exploits, in some ways it does not seem so long ago as so many of Ouija Board’s victories can be recalled, their brilliance and bravery picking them out as performances of a generation. She won 10 of her 22 starts, seven of which came at Group 1 level. She was a champion European three-yearold filly in 2004 after two Oaks

wins and a Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare victory. As a five-year-old she took the Prince Of Wales’s Stakes (G1), the Nassau Stakes (G1) and the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf (G1) again, proving both her soundness of limb and her strength of character able to travel the world in search of and to win top races. She was the champion older mare of 2006. The family traces to the mare Gradisca, by Goya, whom the 18th Earl of Derby swapped with Elisabeth Couturie of Haras du Mesnil in return for sending his mare Amboyna to France. She

was a half-sister to Alycidon, the last great racehorse bred by the 17th Earl of Derby, and she produced for Mesnil the Criterium de Saint-Cloud winner Tracy, by Tosco, and French Derby second Antares Gradisca’s dam, Phebe, by Pharos, was a half-sister to 1928 Prix d’Ispahan winner Rialto, Rabelais, from a very good French family. It took a while for Gradisca to hit for the 18th Earl, and she failed to produce a stakes winner, but she foaled two significant daughters, both by Alycidon. Almah was not placed

mare of the month in two starts, but her unraced daughter Ada Hunter (Andrea Mantegna) was exported to Australia where she produced Kingston Town, one of the greatest runners in Australian history. Lord Derby retained Almah’s unraced sister Samanda, who also did not produce a stakes winner, but the family finally came right with the arrival of Samanda’s daughter, Ouija. She was by Silly Season, a top-class miler by Tom Fool raced in England by the US owner Paul Mellon. She became dam of the best horse bred and raced by the 18th Earl of Derby, Teleprompter (Welsh Pageant). A late-developing gelding, Teleprompter matured into one of the best milers in Europe at four and five, winning five Group 2 and Group 3 races, and he crowned his career with a famous victory in the 1985 Grade 1 Arlington Million.

T

eleprompter’s half-sister Rosia Bay (High Top) was sold to Lord Porchester, who bred the top-class stayer Ibn Bey (Mill Reef), a champion and multiple Group 1 winner in Europe who ran an excellent second to Unbridled in the 1990 Breeders’ Cup Classic, and then Ibn Bey’s half-sister Roseate Tern (Blakeney), who finished third in the 1989 Oaks, but was promoted to second on Aliysa’s disqualification. She then won the Group 1 Yorkshire Oaks. The 19th Earl of Derby had every reason to hope that Teleprompter’s retained sister Selection Board might produce something worthwhile when he inherited the title, Stanley House Stud and its mares on the death of his uncle in 1994. Sadly, Selection Board on the whole did not produce anything of note – most of her offspring ended up NH racing – and it

While Frontiersman and his dam look quite similar, Australia is from a different mould. A lot is expected of his stallion career, and Ouija Board could become a pivotal mare for both Coolmore and Darley breeding empires

seems her second-last foal Ouija Board, born in 1991, tapped into a different gene pool than most of her siblings. The only other to produce Flat stakes performances of note was the 1991-born Star Selection (Rainbow Quest), who had finished second as a juvenile to King’s Theatre in the Hayes, Hanson and Clark Conditions at Newbury and then won his maiden at Newbury in October 1993. At three he was deemed by trainer Paul Cole good enough to run in the 2,000 Guineas and Derby. He finished sixth in the first Classic behind Mister Baileys and then ninth to Erhaab at Epsom. He missed the 1995 season and was sold in November 1995 to trainer John Mackie, and he resumed through the next year picking up minor placings in stakes races, with a highlight being a second in the Magnolia Stakes on the All-Weather at Kempton. He then went hurdling, running 38 times – and indication of the soundness of the family – winning six races and once over fences from seven starts. In all, he ran 62 times. Selection Board’s 1995 Inchinor foal Cruinn A Bhord earned herself £44,000 and a rating of 97 after 7f handicapping successes in 1999.

Ouija Board is also perhaps revealing of the abilities of Cape Cross as a sire as he gave Selection Board all the help she needed to tap back into her Teleprompter heritage

Selection Board was covered in 2000 in Ireland by Cape Cross, the son of Green Desert standing his first season. Perhaps the speedier profile of Cruinn A Bhord, by the Dewhurst Stakes runner-up and Sussex Stakes third Inchinor, persuaded the Earl Of Derby to send Selection Board to the Lockinge and Queen Anne Stakes winner in the hope that he did not produce yet another hurdler. Selection Board’s foal was a

harbinger of Classic fortunes for the Darley stallion who has gone on to sire the leading lights Sea The Stars, Golden Horn and Awtaad. Ouija Board is also perhaps revealing of the abilities of Cape Cross as a sire as he gave Selection Board all the help she needed to tap back into her Teleprompter heritage. Ouija Board surpassed all possible expectations as a racemare and she could become an exceptional broodmare. Frontiersman next holds an entry in the Great Voltigeur (G2), which might have been run by the time you read this and it will be a key indicator as to his future as a later-developing stakes performer, while Australia received a blue book of mares in year one at stud. According to the Weatherbys covering stats, of the 178 mares who visited him in 2015, 80 were black-type performers, 55 were black-type winners, while 32 were Group winners. He has a weight of expectation from Coolmore as a possible Galileo heir, and if Frontiersman goes on to big things, the same could be said of him as a son of Dubawi for Darley. Indeed Ouija Board’s career as a broodmare could prove to be pivotal for both Darley and Coolmore.
