Maxios

Listed race in Dusseldorf. Dabirsim who stands at the Haras de Grandchamp after covering his first two years at Gestüt Karlshof in Germany is the sire who has changed perceptions in a dramatic manner. His first crop of yearlings averaged £28,000 and his second £78,000 with two making €500,000 and a total of four more than €200,000. The son of Hat Trick has made a solid start to his stud career with the leading filly Different League and the Listed winner Coeur de Beaute among his 14 winners at the time of writing. Intello covered plenty of mares in his first season at Cheveley Park Stud, but has had few runners so far. Of the 30 who have run at two Gabr was beaten only just over 5l in the Group 1 Racing Post Trophy and Sonjeu won a Listed race in France. Darley’s Farhh has made an excellent start with the unbeaten Group winner Wells Farhh Go among his winners, but the son of Pivotal only covered 35 mares in 2016. The fee for Tweenhills Stud’s Havana Gold has increased significantly for 2018 after his 18 winners included the Group winner Havana Grey and the Group-placed Headway. Pedro The Great, a half-brother to Footstepsinthesand and winner of the Group 1 Phoenix Stakes, has been a revelation producing three Group-class two-year-olds in Fatale Bere, Feralia and Bonita Fransisca while standing for only €3,000 in west France. Gestüt Fährhof’s Maxios set out with far higher expectations, but has made a decent start with two Group-placed winners in Germany, Wild Max and Suada, as well as Woodmax, who was an excellent fourth in the Group 1 Prix Jean Luc Lagardère.
