Invincible Spirit and his half-brother Kodiac are two of Europe’s most popular sires of 2-year-olds. Invincible Spirit failed to win a Group 1 until he was a 5-year-old while Kodiac never made the placings at that level. Their close relative Pride of Dubai, the fastest son of champion sire Street Cry, won two of Australia’s three Group 1’s for juveniles over six and seven furlongs. In fact he became the first horse in history to record the Blue Diamond Stakes/Sires’ Produce double.

Paul Haigh is in awe of O’Brien’s October training feats, but Haigh has to admit he called the Irish Champion Stakes wrongly

F

Unsurpassed: O’Brien’s 1-2-3 in the Arc

10

www.internationalthoroughbred.net

irst a huge slice of humble pie, pie perhaps adorned with sour grapes and then smothered in similar cream. You may have read in last month’s edition a confident and meant-to-be authoritative statement that while the Irish Champion Stakes was probably the best quality race likely to be run anywhere in the world this year, its form was devalued and would probably prove unreliable because the two main protagonists, Almanzor and Found, raced down the middle of the course where the going was quite obviously much better than it was on the rail. Those who want to nitpick this shrewd analysis may have noticed that Found went on to lead the unprecedented Aidan O’Brien 1-2-3 in the world’s most coveted horse race, the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe. They may also have spotted that she then again ran second to Almanzor in the Qipco British Champion Stakes at Ascot on October 15, in which Almanzor produced an even better performance than he had at Leopardstown. The world is flat and carried through the heavens on the back of a giant turtle. (Yes, people believed that once). If you’re going to get something wrong you might as well go the whole hog. Maybe enough has already been written about O’Brien’s miraculous autumn form. Actually Michael Tabor made the only worthwhile comparison ten minutes after the Arc had finished when he said he thought the Arc trifecta just about matched Michael Dickinson’s beyond imagining achievement in sending out the first five home in the 1983 Cheltenham Gold Cup. The thing is that for a while O’Brien seemed to keep on delivering almost as astonishing results. Like the first two home in about half a dozen big races, including the Dewhurst. Some of us have long thought the tendency of fellow journalists to refer to him as a “genius” was over-egging of pudding if not the much more reprehensible offence of sucking up in order to curry favour. But what word can use you for the feat of preparing three horses with very different profiles to peak in the same place on the first Sunday in October? The old objection to using the ‘G’ word to describe


first word

The Magic man

someone who knows how to look after horses – that they’re only as good as the animals they get – falls down on that single detail. He knew how to bring three very different star horses – a champion stayer, an almost veteran now five-yearold with a string of international victories and global “appearance” money, and a Breeders’ Cup-winning mare who may have run up a string of seconds but never runs a bad race, and then brought them all to the boil on the same day in the same place. Ridiculously good training. There is also just a hint of genius about the way he talks about things afterwards. O’Brien’s so quiet and matter of fact you’d think he was discussing no more of a triumph than bringing three cakes out of the oven properly cooked at the same time. Of course it’s got to be a bit of an act. No-one can be that modest in the face of such provocation to be otherwise without having done a fair bit of calculation about the best way to present himself, but fair play to Aidan, he does bring it off well and it’s impressive even if you do think he must be putting it on. Not even he though can defy all nature’s laws. One of these is that horses can’t go on from winning the Arc to win again in the same season. Found tried valiantly, but even if this is “her time of year” (as the self-effacing one put it) she couldn’t improve past Almanzor who, probably to the disgust of Christophe Soumillon, had bypassed Chantilly for the Qipco British Champion Stakes over the 2f shorter trip his own genius trainer feels is his best. If O’Brien has a rival in Europe it has to be Jean-Claude Rouget. Almanzor is the best horse in Europe. It will take an awful lot of cunning on the part of the international handicappers who think a Dirt horse can possibly be measured against one who excels on the natural surface used by the rest of the racing world to argue that the Breeders’ Cup Classic winner, whoever that turns out to be, can possibly be his superior. The Aussies think they’ve got a better one in Winx. But without belittling her at all, it doesn’t really matter if she wins another Cox Plate. Aiden O’Brien sent over one of his relatively second raters, Adelaide, to win that race a couple of years ago. How easily Almanzor would

O’Brien’s so quiet and matter of fact you’d think he was discussing no more of a triumph than bringing three cakes out of the oven properly cooked at the same time

win a usual Cox Plate hardly bears thinking about. O’Brien couldn’t bring Order Of St George to another peak either. He is by far the best stayer in Europe, but after his Arc third he just couldn’t raise his game again for what should have been a lap of honour and could only finish fourth at Ascot to Sheihkzayedroad. Seventh Heaven, who hadn’t run at Chantilly, also let down The Sage of Ballydoyle. But normal service was resumed when Minding defeated Ribchester in the QEII. Ten furlongs might be Minding’s best trip too so that victory was particularly meritorious. If she’d challenged down the middle in the Irish Champion, might that great race have been a three-way battle? No. No more second guessing A O’B. Or Ryan Moore. The Irish Champion form was as sound as a pound. Well quite a bit sounder in fact given sterling’s recent descent. Whatever they send to Santa Anita will be the ones to beat. Except in any race contested by Limato, if any Breeders’ Cup race is contested by Limato. Paul Jacobs and another training near genius Henry Candy (who doesn’t get such expensive horses as the ones that go to Ballydoyle was still ‘thinking about the Breeders Cup’ the last time he was asked). The good news is that he’s also thinking about Hong Kong in December, when his bad tempered but magnificent little gelding might just become the first British-trained sprinter ever to take on and beat the Hong Kongers on their own patch. At least he should get the firm ground he must have. Now I’m sure you’re agog for further thoughts from the source that brought you the exclusive about the Almanzor/Found form at Leopardstown not standing up. Hard to think of any at the moment except that an American horse will probably win the Breeders’ Cup Classic and a European or ex-European the Melbourne Cup. Oh and here’s one bit of extra information. Both Hillary and Donny will withdraw from the race for the US presidency and run away together to Acapulco. On the back of a giant turtle. Well, it’s about as plausible as some of the stuff that’s been happening lately.

the news

ITV team in place for horseracing debut Variety of new names from differing backgrounds added to the central cast BRITISH TV Channel ITV is gearing up towards its horseracing broadcasting debut on New Year’s Day. Main presenter as announced earlier this year will be Ed Chamberlin alongside co-presenter for the Flat season Francesca Cumani, with Matt Chapman the betting presenter and reporter. Ed Chamberlin said: “I’m delighted with the team ITV have put together and really look forward to working with them. That line-up, coupled with ITV's expertise at making sports programmes, is a really exciting prospect. I can't wait to get started at Cheltenham on January 1st.” Oli Bell will present ITV’s weekly racing morning magazine show, with Richard Hoiles taking the role of lead commentator, joined in the commentary box by Mark Johnson. Horseracing experts on the team include Hayley Turner, Mick Fitzgerald, Jason Weaver, Luke Harvey and Brian Gleeson. Brough Scott will also appear as a regular guest offering his insight 30 years on from when he presented ITV’s racing coverage himself. Frankie Dettori will be a regular contributor, while British Olympian cyclist and horseracing convert Victoria Pendleton will bring her own perspective to the channel’s coverage. Alice Plunkett, Rishi Persad and Sally-Ann Grassick all have reporting roles. Richard Hoiles said: “It is a fantastic opportunity to be part of the ITV team and have the privilege of calling the superb array of big races we will be covering next year. “Racing is a unique sport that offers beauty and drama in

ITV’s new key presenters: Ed Chamberlin and Francesca Cumani

ce and hopefully we can really bring that to life for the viewers whether they be ardent fans or new to the sport.” Oli Bell added: “I am hugely excited about this opportunity and am really looking forward to fronting the Saturday morning magazine show. “I am passionate about the sport and will look forward to the afternoon's action every bit as much as the viewers at home and I hope to share that enthusiasm with them. “I can’t wait to kick on now and work closely with the excellent team that ITV have assembled both on screen and behind the camera.” Hayley Turner said: “We hope to give viewers an enjoyable ride, giving them a close insight into the world of racing with plenty of laughs along the way. “For me, this opportunity is a new chapter, having recently retired from race riding, so I’m

looking forward to getting to grips with the role with this talented new team.” Niall Sloane, ITV director of sport, is looking forward to the future. “We believe this line-up, which draws on a range of people from within racing and beyond, will enrich our coverage with the quality, expertise, insight and personality to bring home to viewers the full enjoyment and appreciation of this wonderful sport.” ITV’s exclusive new four-year deal to show UK horseracing on terrestrial television takes effect from the start of 2017, when its free to air coverage will begin. ITV’s racing coverage will include live broadcasts of around 100 days of racing each year, with 41 racing days on the main channel. Coverage will begin with the New Year’s Day meeting at

Cheltenham. The 41 days will encompass the Grand National, the Epsom Derby, all the major festivals including Cheltenham and Royal Ascot, the Five Classics, plus other highlights of the racing calendar such as Future Champions Day at Newmarket and Champions Day at Ascot. In addition, ITV4’s racing coverage will see a reintroduction of free-to-air broadcasts of the Craven Meeting at Newmarket in April. ITV will show two days including the Nell Gwyn and Craven Stakes, key trials for the 1,000 and 2,000 Guineas. Both days of Newbury’s winter festival featuring the Hennessy Gold Cup will also be broadcast. The deal further adds to ITV’s portfolio of sports rights, which includes the Tour de France, the French Open and live coverage of the England football team’s qualification campaign for the World Cup 2018 qualifiers.

the news

Makfi and Belmont winner Creator to Japan The Japan Bloodhorse Breeders’ Association has purchased two new stallions this autumn for its roster – Makfi, previously owned by Qatar Bloodstock and a European Classic-winning son of Dubawi,

and this year’s Belmont Stakes winner Creator bought from WinStar Farm and Bobby Flay. Makfi has been based for the last two northern-hemisphere seasons at Haras de Bonneval in Normandy. The 2,000 Guineas and Prix Jacques le Marois winner initially stood under the Qatar Bloodstock banner at Tweenhills Farm and Stud in Gloucestershire, where he spent four seasons before transferring to France.

He also shuttled to Westbury Stud in New Zealand and is travelling from there direct to Japan. Makfi’s first crop produced the Classic winner Make Believe, who won the Poule d’Essai des Poulains and Prix de la Forêt. In New Zealand he has sired two Group 1 winners – Marky Mark winner of the Manawatu Sires’ Produce Stakes, and Sofia Rosa, who won the Australian Oaks. Qatar Bloodstock manager David Redvers

Ryan Moore and heading up a trifecta for Aidan O’Brien. There were good winners for Henry Candy, James Fanshawe, Charlie Appleby and, slightly uncharacteristically, for Sir Mark Prescott, in the Abbaye with Marsha. Ascot enjoyed a generally dry October and did not have to resort to running its top race on the hurdle course. However, in future years, it could be crucial to have it as a back up for the 1m2f+ races. Minding comes out of the same foundry as the Arc winner and is ultra tough, ultra consistent and ultra good. Almanzor looks incredibly well bought as a yearling, Jean Claude Rouget having spent “just” €100,000 on him at Arqana. He was a fifth Prix Jockey-Club winner bought as a yearling in the last ten years. Almanzor’s Falco half-brother was sold this October at Arqana for €140,000, but he was quite a plain horse. Wootton Bassett had only 17 named foals in his first crop with seven winners so far. His second crop numbered 21 with just one winner so far, of a claimer, at two. He has had far larger crops since and after this year will have a big hike in his stud fee and will get a better book of mares.

In France it seemed our regular comments were directed at the length / slackness of pasterns and the flatness of feet, which do not go well together

O

ctober has been a busy month with top-class racing in both hemispheres and the hectic bustle of sales in Ireland, England and France. Both Albert Camus and George Eliot waxed lyrical about autumn and Marilyn Monroe said she “felt like a warm red autumn”. The weather has been surprisingly dry both in Britain and in northern France resulting in good ground both for the Arc meeting at Chantilly and Champions Day at Ascot. As predicted, the draw at Chantilly proved all important, suiting those horses able to be on the pace as very few were able to come from behind. The French home team had a good day on the Saturday with only Quest For More and Roger Charlton chalking up a British success. Andreas Wohler and Potemkin in the Prix Dollar scored for Germany. On Arc day the only French-trained winners were National Defense in the Lagardère, rescuing a miserable season for Criquette Head, and Al Mourtajez in the Arabian race. Arc day saw Found well rewarded for her toughness and consistency with a copybook winning ride from

Sheikhzayedroad completed a black-type double at Ascot for Dubawi. The sire then followed up with a one-two in the Canadian International in which Erupt beat Dartmouth, and a day later D’bai won the Listed two-year-old race at Pontefract. The jockeys’ championship resulted in a popular win for Jim Crowley and an equally well-deserved champion apprentice victory for Josie Gordon. Ascot also marked the departure of Clare Balding from terrestrial racing presentation as she is not to be part of the ITV team. It was a glowing endorsement to the efficacy of Olbas Oil that, despite a nasty cold, she managed to get through both the racing and the following day’s Good Morning Sunday. She must have picked up a germ from her whirlwind book signing of “The Racehorse Who Wouldn’t Gallop”. Luckily, she has left for sunnier climes and a well-deserved holiday after the Olympic and ParaOlympic shows in Rio. Newmarket sees the full opening of the National Heritage Centre for Horseracing and Sporting Art, which has seen the Rothschild Yard, the King’s Yard, the Trainer’s House and Palace House all refurbished. I look forward to revisiting it – the


the news said: “We will be sad to see Makfi go as he was the first stallion purchased by Qatar Bloodstock and he means a lot to Sheikh Fahad and all the team. “However, from a commercial perspective, the deal made good sense and we wish the JBBA the best of luck with him.” A representative of the JBBA said: “We feel very fortunate to be able to acquire a young and proven stallion such as Makfi. Having already sired a Classic winner in France and Australia, we are hopeful that he will be successful in Japan as well.” Creator, a son of leading US sire Tapit, won a maiden at Oaklawn Park in February before finishing third in the Grade 2 Rebel Stakes, winning the Grade 1 Arkansas Derby and running 13th in

the Kentucky Derby. He gained his Classic honours when defeating Destin by a nose to take the Belmont. WinStar president Elliott Walden said: “The JBBA approached us with a strong desire to stand a top Grade 1-winning son of Tapit, and since we already have one on our stallion roster with Constitution, it was ultimately too good of an opportunity to pass up for everyone involved, including the horse. “Last year we visited the JBBA, and were impressed with facilities. They’ve done such a great job with American horses like Empire Maker and Forty Niner, and we hope Creator can have a similar impact for Japan and its breeders.”

Talented: jockey Josie Gordon 2016’s British Champion apprentice

last time I was there trainer Bruce Hobbs was in residence. Both Charlie McBride, now training in Newmarket, and Nigel Blackiston, now training in Melbourne, were working for him. Perhaps now is the time to consider instituting a Hall of Fame in which our racing icons can be recognised and commemorated? I also want to see Mark Coreth’s statue of Frankel and Nichola Eddery’s portrait of the champion, painted in the style of Stubbs. The other project currently being proposed for Newmarket is the construction of a “Warren Hill” on Racecourse Side. Reports quote that it would cost £10 million; it sounds like a very expensive white elephant. A far cheaper alternative would be to give trainers access to several high-speed treadmills that could be

housed in a sound-proofed building and run by a horseman trained up by Allan Davie. He wrote “A scientific approach to training thoroughbred horses” and he started life galloping horses in Dubbo. He is an associate professor in equine exercise physiology and has also worked with human athletes. Tread mills would be a good, and far cheaper option, and would relieve pressure on trainers trying to find good riders in a diminishing market. I remember Jim White, long-time travelling head lad for Sir Noel Murless, being asked by a young trainer in Newmarket where he could find good staff. White drily suggested the cemetery at the top of the town. Liam Norris and I are recovering from a very busy three weeks of yearling sales. He and Jenny had a great two

weeks selling for the first time under their own banner of Norris Bloodstock from their base at Granham Farm, just south of Marlborough. They sold the joint top Book 1 lot – Normandie Stud’s Dubawi colt out of Fallen For You. Liam and I then bought yearlings both in Newmarket’s Book 2 and 3 and at Deauville. We found yearlings in Newmarket to be on the fat side, especially from vendors with large drafts in Book 1. A lot more yearlings in Newmarket were pinhooked as foals. In France it seemed our regular comments were directed at the length /slackness of pasterns and the flatness of feet, which do not go well together. Trade was strong at both sales and averages were up. Unfortunately, the fall of sterling made our visit rather more expensive than usual. The trip commenced slightly inauspiciously on the night ferry out. I was woken abruptly at just after 1am when Liam fell from the top bunk after slipping on the ladder on his way to the bathroom! He fell on my bunk in his naked state – it gave me an even bigger shock when I switched the light on! On the return trip I volunteered to find other sleeping arrangements. I ended up on the floor of the reclining seat section, I had my car seat’s Jacobs Fleece to lie on and, apart from lacking a pillow, had a far better night’s sleep!

Australian stallion Octagonal dies Octagonal

Octagonal, Australia’s Horse of the Year in 1996, has been euthanized at Woodlands Stud in the Hunter Valley. He was 24. “It is a sad day as Octagonal is an old favourite. He will be sorely missed,” said John Sunderland, general manager at Woodlands. Bred at Cambridge Stud in New Zealand, Octagonal was from the first crop of champion sire Zabeel. Purchased as a yearling by Jack and Bob Ingham, he was trained by John Hawkes and won 14 of his 28 starts, including victories in 10 Group 1 races. The following autumn he annexed Sydney’s Triple Crown for three-year-olds by winning the Canterbury Guineas, Rosehill Guineas and Australian Derby in which he beat Saintly, Nothin’ Leica Dane and Filante in a vintage year. At five, he recorded his second Mercedes Classic victory for his last Group 1 win and became the highest-earning horse in Australian racing history at the time. Retired to stud in 1997 he sired 11-time Group 1 winner Lonhro in his first crop. He is the sire of 1,209 foals aged three and up. Apart from Lonhro his other noted Group winners include Laverock, Niello, Suntagonal, Boreale, Hosannah, Hierogram, Spinney, Diamond Deck and Star Of Octagonal. Lonhro is the only horse to be crowned Australian Horse of the Year and to go on and win the Australian general sires’ premiership.

Mark Birch, rider of legendary Sea Pigeon, dies aged 67 The former successful northern-based jockey Mark Birch, one of the most popular Flat jockeys in the north and seven-time winner of the “Cock Of The North” title, died in October aged 67.

T

Birch’s career took off when he joined trainer Peter Easterby in 1968. It was a hugely successful and 30-year long association. For Easterby he partnered Sea Pigeon to win eight races, including two consecutive Chester Cups in 1977 and 1978.

his sales season plays host to special occasions for both Goffs and Tattersalls as both companies mark momentous anniversaries. Goffs, founded in 1866, celebrates 150 years since being appointed as auctioneer to the Turf Club, while Tattersalls, founded in 1766, commemorates 250 years in business. Both companies must be congratulated on the wonderful commemorative books and smart clothing ranges that were launched to mark the occasions. Many people can now be spotted around the sales sporting smart outdoor attire bearing either the Goffs “1866” logo or the famous “Tattersalls Palladium”. I have also greatly enjoyed reading both of the glossy publications; full of history and photographs documenting the exploits of the good and the great of the bloodstock world. It is wonderful to look back over the years and see the great bloodstock dynasties, continuity and traditions that are still going strong today. One wonders what future generations will make of the exploits of today’s bloodstock luminaries 150 or 250 years hence?! With the yearling sales in full swing for the past number of weeks, certain trends have become apparent in the marketplace. The increases in the foal crop numbers have led to increased sale sizes, particularly at the lower end of the market. This, in turn, has resulted in a drop in the clearance rates and it is clear that the supply of horses far outstrips the demand from buyers. This is indeed worrying food for thought when one remembers that foal crop numbers have continued to increase, and seem to show no signs of slowing down. It is contrary to the basic principles of economics to continue in such a fashion and can not bode well for the industry. Much good work has been done by the sales companies and organisations such as Great British Racing, Irish Thoroughbred Marketing, FRBC and Destination Europe in attracting foreign buyers to Britain and Ireland, but it is clear that there is still more work to be done on both sides of the supply chain. The TBA and ITBA have been instrumental in educating

and assisting breeders by hosting seminars on breeding for economic success. While that success is very important for the growth of any business, we also need to keep sight of the fact that we are in the business of producing racehorses and not just sales horses. Improving prize-money, increasing racecourse attendance, providing new owners with assistance and improving facilities for existing owners at the races, are all issues that the industry is getting to grips with and working hard to improve. The good work that is being put in at the coal face by the many industry bodies will hopefully bear fruit and will help attract new owners to the industry and show an increase in demand in the sales ring. It has been a long five straight weeks on the road for me being working on both sides of the market, selling and buying in England, Ireland and France. That said, I enjoy it immensely despite the long hours, early mornings and occasional late nights. We have had a good season and I am happy to reflect on having both bought and sold well – although only time will tell if that is indeed true! One of the things I enjoy most about the sales is the wonderful camaraderie that you experience amongst the vendors. While things can sometimes be very competitive on the purchasing side of things, the support and friendships built up between neighbouring vendors is fantastic. Newtown Stud has been stabled alongside Glenvale Stud at Tattersalls now for a number of years and you couldn’t ask for better neighbours – we help each other out, cheer each other on and generally entertain each other when things have gone badly, or boredom starts to set in.  This is not a stand-alone case, but something I see all around sales complexes when I am out inspecting yearlings, and it is one of the great things about our industry. The many relationships and friendships built on our travels around the world’s horse auctions frequently last lifetimes and sometimes even generations. Just a quick read through the commerative books from Goffs and Tattersalls bear testament to that.

The victorious one

Almanzor becomes the European Champion three-year-old of 2016 with victory in the Qipco British Champion Stakes, writes Sue Montgomery

(Ed: It is worth taking a look for Soumillon’s whip in this shot....) 23

I

f, as they say, a good horse should have a good name, then Almanzor’s could be considered perfect. The original bearer was a tenth-century nobleman, politician and soldier from Andalucia, virtual ruler of what is now Spain in its days as a Muslim power. Almanzor, from the Arabic al-Mansur, translates as “the victorious one” and surely any military man would appreciate the carefully considered strategy that brought about the rise to glory of his equine namesake. Trainer Jean-Claude Rouget was behind the steely planning that reaped its reward on QIPCO British Champions Day at Ascot and may well do so again at Chantilly in a year’s time. Rouget has saddled the winners of more than 6,000 races, though never of his country’s top prize, the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, and when his chief candidate for this year’s edition, La Cressonniere, was a late defector, a tempting move might have been to pull her stablemate Almanzor off the bench. But the campaign marked out for the colt, winner of the Prix du Jockey-Club in June, was a 1m2f one. Almanzor duly hit gold in both his top-level late-season targets, the Irish and British Champion Stakes and even faced with the fact that Found, runner-up on each occasion, had won the Arc in between her Leopardstown and Ascot ventures, Rouget was not for looking back.  “There was some pressure to run in the Arc, but for me the Ascot race was a better configuration from every point of view, timing and distance, and it was not me who was ever going to have regrets,” said Rouget. “Next year we can try a mile and a half with him and then see if we go to the Arc.”  For all the dark bay three-year-old’s progressive talent, he is still relatively unseasoned at the top level and may have found a rematch at Chantilly with battle-hardened year-older Found, who had been only three-quarters of a length adrift of him in Ireland, a tough enough venture over her best distance of 1m4f.  At Ascot, it was indeed speed and acceleration rather than stamina that counted as Almanzor cut down The Grey Gatsby going to the final furlong, with rider Christophe Soumillon taking the initiative much sooner than at Leopardstown. Found chased him through with all her trademark determination but had no answer to his change of pace and this time her margin of defeat was extended to 2l.

Christophe Soumillon: a second Champion Stakes win, and an eighth Group1 victory in Britain

There was some pressure to run in the Arc, but for me the Ascot race was a better configuration from every point of view, timing and distance

“My only thought was not to wait for her as I know how strong she is,” said Soumillon. “I did not want to give her any chance.” Rouget was equally respectful towards the wonderful Found, recording her tenth Group 1 second place to go with top-level successes in the Arc, Breeders’ Cup Turf and Prix Marcel Boussac. “I’m not sure Almanzor was better than he was at Leopardstown, he just did his job again and the five weeks between his two races was just perfect,” said his Pau-based trainer. “He beat Found a little further this time because she had the Arc in her legs, but she is a champion too.”  The first two were followed in by the three


uk racing other Group 1 winners in the field – Jack Hobbs (2015 Irish Derby), My Dream Boat (who beat Found in the Prince Of Wales’s Stakes) and The Grey Gatsby (2014 Prix du Jockey-Club and Irish Champion Stakes). It was Rouget’s second Champion Stakes, after Literato at Newmarket in 2007, and his ninth Group 1 victory of 2016. His other winners at that level being Zelzal (Prix Jean Prat) and the fillies La Cressonniere (Poule d’Essai des Pouliches, Prix de Diane), Qemah (Coronation Stakes, Prix Rothschild) and Jemayel (Prix Saint-Alary).  Almanzor, bred in France at the de Chambure family’s Haras d’Etreham, is outstandingly the best from the small first crop of the Normandy nursery resident Wootton Bassett, who started his career at €6,000. The colt was sold for €100,000 as a yearling to run in the colours of Spaniard Antonio Caro and Gerard AugustinNormand. Before the Champion Stakes, Haras d’Etreham reacquired a half-share.  Wootton Bassett was a high-class juvenile, five from five including the Prix JeanLuc Lagardère, though he was unplaced in all four starts at three. He was fast and precocious, as might be expected from one by Iffraaj out of a Primo Dominie mare, but there is plenty of stamina and durability in his background – his dam was Listed-placed over 1m2f and her dam is a half-sister to Silver Patriarch (St Leger, Coronation Cup) and Papineau (Gold Cup).  Almanzor is the first produce of the Aga Khan cast-off Darkova, acquired by Etreham as an unraced three-year-old for €16,000. The daughter of Maria’s Mon, whose 2016 foal is a brother to Europe’s best performer, is out of 1m4f Chantilly Listed winner Darkara, a Halling half-sister to the dam of top-class miler Darjina. It is also the family of another Jockey-Club winner in Darsi. If Rouget’s year has been stellar, Aidan O’Brien’s must be rated cosmic, thanks mainly to his galacticas. After Champions Day, fillies had contributed most to O’Brien’s seasonal top-level Flat total with Minding taking the 21st such prize in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes. Six individual females – four-year-old Found, three-year-olds Minding, Alice Springs and Seventh Heaven and the twoyear-olds Brave Anna and Rhododendron – had won 13 Group 1s. The rest has come from

Minding: the 2016 Queen

Minding is the most prolific of this year’s Ballydoyle brigade, the QEII being her fifth Group 1 of the campaign and her seventh in all. She justified favouritism in the Ascot contest to become the first of her sex to win it for 29 years and just the seventh individual in all after Cigalon (1956), Midget (1957), Rosalba (1959), The Creditor (1963), Rose Bowl (1975-76) and Milligram (1987). The latest edition of the QEII, generally

regarded as the mile division’s end-of-season showdown, was just that with the winners of all four English and Irish Guineas – Minding herself, Galileo Gold, Awtaad and Jet Setting – plus two more Group 1 winners in Ribchester and Hit It A Bomb. The only obvious absentee was the injured and retired The Gurkha. On her first venture in mixed company, Minding had finished third to Almanzor and Found in the Irish Champion Stakes after a troubled passage, the first time she had failed to make the first two in 11 runs and only her second defeat of the year, after being nosed out of the Irish 1,000 Guineas by Jet Setting on bottomless ground. She made no mistake against the boys at

Ascot, putting daylight between herself and her rivals before the final furlong. She was 2l clear with half a furlong to run and though she then idled was always in charge, comfortably giving Ryan Moore a long overdue first success at the meeting, now in its sixth year. Runner-up Ribchester – third to The Gurkha and Galileo Gold in a photo for the Sussex Stakes (G1) and then a fluent winner of the Prix Jacques le Marois (G1) – was flattered by his half-length proximity. Five-year-old Lightning Spear did best of the rest, ahead of Awtaad and Galileo Gold.  If Almanzor was one champion for the eponymous day, Minding is certainly another. To have the class, temperament and versatility to post top-level successes over a mile, 1m2f and a 1m4f over a full season is rare enough (as is to be given the opportunity to do so). Generally horses who are not pigeonholed into one division usually step up in trip, as did Sea The Stars, and not back down.  Brigadier Gerard was one of the rare few to show the ability to step back down in trip. As a four-year-old 44 years ago he opened his season in the Lockinge Stakes, took the Eclipse and Prince of Wales’s before that battling King George victory, and then ran right away from Queen Anne Stakes winner Sparkler in the QEII.  It is also a rare horse of either sex who can win as many as seven Group 1 races by the end of a three-year-old career, in Minding’s case the Moyglare Stud Stakes, the Fillies’ Mile, the 1,000 Guineas,the Oaks, the Nassau and Pretty Polly Stakes before the QEII. Among European fillies, she has only Miesque – who also won a pair at two and notched her sixth at three in the Breeders’ Cup Mile – ahead of her.  With this year’s British and Irish threeyear-old colts being much of a muchness it is perhaps a shame Minding was not able to take her chance for a bit of history in the

uk racing 2,000 Guineas or Derby, but that was never an option with her stablemates’ stallion cvs still waiting to be written. The signs are that the daughter of Galileo will stay in training at four, when a clash with Almanzor would be worth walking over hot coals to witness. Minding’s dam, the Danehill Dancer mare Lillie Langtry, was herself a highclass performer, with Group 1 wins in the Coronation and Matron Stakes. Lillie Langtry’s five foals to date have all been by Galileo, and all have been fillies. But if one is as good as Minding, who needs a colt?  Of Galileo’s other 12 individual 2016 top-level winners, six have resulted from the proven Danehill cross. A further two in addition to Minding are out of Danehill Dancer mares (Alice Springs and The Gurkha), two (Highland Reel and Deauville) are out of mares by Danehill himself and Photo Call is out of another of his sons, Rock of Gibraltar.  That leaves seven from other genetic mixes, including two of next year’s Classic prospects. Churchill, the Dewhurst and National Stakes winner, is from the Storm Cat mare Meow, and Rhododendron, heroine of the Fillies’ Mile, is out of Halfway To Heaven, by Pivotal, who is also creating his own family of ladies as a successful broodmare sire.

New records for Galileo

Just when you thought there was not much more to say about Galileo, he (and his former trainer O’Brien) produced that unprecedented clean sweep in the Arc, courtesy of Found, Highland Reel and Order Of St George. And this season has brought a numerical record, with another looming. In the QEII, Minding gave the 18-year-old stallion his 22nd Group or Grade 1 win of the year, a sequence that began in Australia in March by The United States in the Ranvet Stakes at Rosehill. The king of Coolmore’s previous best had been 19 in 2011, a record he held jointly with Danehill until Churchill bettered it in his Dewhurst Stakes. The former County Tipperary monarch set the mark in 2001 and 2005, when he had 13 individual top-grade winners worldwide. After Ascot, Galileo needed one more for another new record.

The Last Lion halts an O’Brien juvenile Group 1 clean sweep

A

idan O’Brien’s dominance of the elite juvenile scene has been remarkable, even by his standards, particularly in Britain. At the time of writing, with the Racing Post Trophy to come, he had not only won three of Britain’s four two-year-old Group 1s, but also supplied the runner-up for good measure. The one that got away was the Middle Park Stakes, which represented solid top-class juvenile sprint form from The Last Lion. He has been on the go since taking the Brocklesby Stakes on the Turf season’s opening day back in April and then placing at the Royal Ascot, Goodwood and York festivals, proved a credit to his trainer Mark Johnston. At Newmarket he accounted for equally classy and consistent Blue Point, with another of the ilk, Mehmas, back in third.  The Last Lion, by Choisir, carries the colour of John Brown and Megan Dennis and was acquired for €82,000 as a yearling. The colt, bred by Barronstown Stud and the Stack family, is out of Mala Mala, a Brief Truce half-sister to Tommy Stack-trained Irish 1,000 Guineas heroine Tarascon. He has since been bought by Godolphin and retired to stud.  In the Cheveley Park the two War Front fillies Brave Anna and Roly Poly were split by a short-head, relegating Lady Aurelia to third. The Fillies’ Mile was dominated by the Galileo pair Rhododendron and Hydrangea, and the Dewhurst Stakes by Churchill and Lancaster Bomber, with the Coolmore sires this time splitting the spoils, the winner by Galileo and the runner-up by Kentucky-based War Front.  Both Rhododendron and Hydrangea are out of Pivotal mares owned by Coolmore interests. Rhododendron is out of Halfway To Heaven, who won three Group 1s – the Irish 1,000 Guineas, Nassau and Sun Chariot Stakes – and has also produced a Group 3 winner, Flying The Flag, to Galileo. The mare, a 450,000gns yearling purchase, is out of King’s Stand Stakes winner Cassandra Go. Hydrangea is a sister to The United States, an Australian Group 1 winner since his transfer from O’Brien, out of Beauty Is Truth, whose dam Zelding is a half-sister to high-class sprinter Zipping.  The imposing Churchill made it five in a row as he followed up his wide-margin defeat of Mehmas in the National Stakes, staying on strongly ahead of Lancaster Bomber, a half-brother to top miler Excelebration, and Blue Point. The colt is another with a high-class sprinting second dam, being out of the Storm Cat mare Meow, a daughter of Cheveley Park Stakes winner Airwave.  Churchill and Rhododendron are winter favourites for their respective Guineas. The colt will want to do better than his Dewhurst predecessor Air Force Blue, but if Rhododendron blooms as well as 2015 Fillies Mile winner Minding, nobody will be complaining.

The speed division has been a muddled one this year and in the Sprint Stakes it was the turn of the Tom Queally-ridden The Tin Man, fourth to Muhaarar 12 months previously in the 6f contest’s first running as a Group 1. On his other top-level ventures this term the four-year-old had been down the field behind Twilight Son in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes (G1), and second to Quiet Reflection in

the Haydock Sprint Cup (G1), both of whom were down the field at Ascot, along with Nunthorpe heroine Mecca’s Angel. The Tin Man, chased home by handicappers Growl and Brando, with Prix Maurice de Gheest winner Signs Of Blessing fourth, is a first Group 1 winner for Equiano, from his first crop. The son of Acclamation won the King’s Stand Stakes (G1) twice, at three and five, and is now based at Newsells Park in Hertfordshire, where he covered this year at £7,000.  The Tin Man, who had a price tag of 80,000gns as a yearling, kept the race in the family, emulating his Compton Place half-brother Deacon Blues, the winner in 2011 and likewise trained by James Fanshawe. The pair are out of Elizabeth Grundy’s mare Persario, who has a five from five record with her runners and the foal she is expecting next year, by Muhaarar, probably has Champions Day already marked in the diary.  The daughter of Bishop Of Cashel, a halfsister to smart 7f performer Warningford, is also responsible for Listed-placed four-time winner Holley Shiftwell (Bahamian Bounty), four times minor winner If So (Iffraaj) and two-year-old Hilario (Sepoy), who got off the mark at Kempton in September.

T

he Arc weekend was an unusual event in many ways. It was held at Chantilly rather than Longchamp, but the surprise here was not the change of venue but rather the success of France Galop’s preparations. A large crowd was able to get to and from the racecourse without any significant hold ups, the temporary stands and dining rooms allowed all those who wished to eat and drink to their fill, and even beyond. The event was a triumph from beginning to end for France Galop and its new leaders Edouard de Rothschild and Olivier Delloye. Never before, or in any event not in the last 30 years, has France Galop succeeded in putting on such a service for all of its customers and creating an event that was both great to watch and to take part in for professionals and paying customers alike. The success of the first Chantilly Arc suggests that the new Longchamp might have been a good idea after all. If France Galop can create something so

36

www.internationalthoroughbred.net

different in the space of six months or so at Chantilly, then perhaps from the spring of 2018 racing at the new Longchamp will be able to transform the sport’s image in France. It is still be a monumental task, but what had appeared to be far fetched a year ago is now at least feasible. To return to the more technical aspects of the weekend there were several unusual trends, with the extraordinary success of Aidan O’Brien being the most obvious. The Arc had been one of the Ballydoyle trainer’s least successful major events with only one victory, that of Dylan Thomas in 2007, in previous attempts but this year his runners dominated the Arc from start to finish. From the top of the straight there can’t have been any other trainers hoping, or expecting, to finish in the first three. From the moment Found quickened past the pacemaker Vedevani the race looked, and felt like, a Ballydoyle procession. O’Brien’s stable was on top form at the beginning of October, but it was not a good

Arc weekend for France’s leading trainers. The three-year-olds The Juliet Rose and Taareef won Group 2s on the Saturday for Nicolas Clement and Jean-Claude Rouget, but only one of the seven Group 1 races was won by a French-trained horse, National Defense for Criquette Head. The overall results were more of a rout than a defeat as 18 of the 21 Group 1-placed horses were trained in England or Ireland and only three, National Defense, Vazirabad and Karar in France. The leading stables in Chantilly have not really been on form at any point during the season and the virus which struck the training centre in the spring is probably the reason for this well below-par performance at France’s most important weekend of racing. Rouget’s Pau stable has, of course, been on top form for months, but his stable is more focused on success during the first part of the season than in early October. Another possible explanation is that the condition of the track was most unusual for France and so the Group 1 races in particular


euro racing were run in a very different style to usual. It was very difficult indeed to come from behind and with the exception of the Cadran and the Abbaye, run over 2m4f and 5f, the principals at the finish were all close to the lead more or less from the start and none came from behind making a run away from the rails in the straight. The Arc itself was a little different as it was run at an exceptionally fast pace, but even at the top of the straight Order Of St George was in second behind the pacemaker, and Highland Reel and Found were fifth and sixth close up behind him. Aside from the Arc the final times of the other Group 1s were good without being exceptional, but it was more or less impossible to make ground on the leaders in the straight. French racing usually involves settling behind a moderate pace and then sprinting from behind in the straight, yet at Chantilly on Arc weekend this was a tactic that just didn’t work at all. The track conditions favoured the English and Irish-trained horses, and they were more than able to capitalise on this advantage. Found broke the track record for the 1m4f at Chantilly which Bering had held since winning the Prix du Jockey-Club in 1986, stopping the clock in a time of 2min23.61. Bering, who was second only to Dancing Brave in one of the best-ever European Classic generations, won the Jockey-Club on a baking hot June day and on firm ground. His time of 2min24.1 was a remarkable one and no less than 3.2secs faster than any previous Jockey-Club, the equivalent of around 16l! After Bering there were some other fast Jockey-Clubs – Sanglamore, Sulamani and Blue Canari – all of whom broke the 2min26sec mark and the Group 2 Grand Prix de Chantilly was won by Policy Maker in 2min24.8 in 2004, but Bering’s record looked sure to last for a very long time once the Jockey-Club had been reduced in distance. The faster times post-1986 suggest that some changes were made to the course to make it faster, or less of a test of stamina, as during the Jockey-Club’s golden period when the race was won by horses such as Top Ville, Assert, Caerleon and Darshaan, 2min27 was an excellent time. This only puts in some perspective quite how fast the Arc was run and how the race was transformed by the performance of Vedevani.

Wuheida (above), So Mi Dar and Left Hand are all by Dubawi and out of Singspiel mares

Those who tried to go with Vedevani – Postponed, Silverwave, Makahiki and Left Hand – were all beaten by the time they reached the top of the straight The Aga Khan’s son of Dubawi, alongside Vadawina, were sold in a sale on Arqana’s website for €800,000 in the week after the race and on this showing if he recovers fully he will take a lot of beating in top races in Qatar this winter. Vedevani, setting the pace for the Derby winner Harzand, went straight to the front, and then more or less sprinted for 1m2f. He ran the first 7f less than 0.5 seconds slower than Limato achieved in the Prix de la Forêt. From that point he raced down the hill past the château climbing back into the straight and yet he hardly slowed down until he reached the 1m2f pole, at which point he was still in the lead with only Found about to draw alongside. Vedevani ran the first 7f at an average speed of 38mph, and the following 3f at

36mph, which included the sharp climb into the straight. His time for 1m2f was nearly three seconds faster than the time Speedy Boarding achieved in the Prix de l’Opera. Those who tried to go with Vedevani – Postponed, Silverwave, Makahiki, Left Hand and others – were all beaten by the time they reached the top of the straight; they had just gone far too fast too soon and had nothing left for the final 400m. Found ran the last 400m in 24.41secs at an average speed of 36mph, not remarkable except in the circumstances and far faster than any of those who had raced in front through the first part of the race could manage. Highland Reel and Order Of St George are very tough, experienced stayers and were able to maintain a similar pace to take second and third place. The only other horse who finished well was Siljan’s Saga and it is a pity that the JeanPierre Gauvin-trained mare has never been asked to race outside France. On this showing she could win Group 1 races as she is clearly suited to very fast run races. The horses who waited behind such as Savoir Vivre were too far back to be able to threaten the leaders and most of the main contenders failed to show their best form, undone by the way the race was run. O’Brien’s horses proved to be not only better than the others, but also far tougher and stronger too.

euro racing Impressive juvenile winners

Neither of the two juvenile Group 1s were run at a particularly fast pace and yet the early leaders dominated the finish of both. Dabyah set only an average pace in the Marcel Boussac, but the daughter of Sepoy looked to have quickened into a winning lead halfway up the straight. The John Gosden-trained filly’s stamina ran out in the closing stages and she was passed by both Wuheida and Promise To Be True, who had to come around her and so were not racing on the rail. The fourth, the Niarchos family’s Senga, a daughter of Blame, put up one of the best performances as she was still in last place with 300m to run and had to make her run on the outside. Godolphin’s Wuheida is Dubawi’s first-ever Group 1-winning two-year-old in Europe and as this was only her second ever run she is likely to be a very good filly indeed at three. As the leading three-year-old fillies So Mi Dar and Left Hand are also by Dubawi out of Singspiel mares this is going to be a popular cross for those who have access to Dubawi in the future.

Godolphin’s Wuheida is Dubawi’s first-ever Group 1-winning two-year-old The Prix Jean Luc Lagardère attracted a disappointing field, but produced an excellent winner. Sun Bloodstock’s National Defense dominated the field from start to finish. He was given an easy lead through the first part of the race, and he quickened right away from his rivals to win unchallenged by four and a half lengths running the final 600m in 33.2secs, one of the fastest splits of the day. National Defense had won brilliantly on his debut in Deauville and had then failed to settle when only third behind Akihiro in a Group 3 at Chantilly in September. He is one of only two yearlings Sun Bloodstock bought at the 2015 Arqana August sale and he cost €280,000 from the Haras des Monceaux.

Speedy and Limato: on fire

Meon Valley Stud’s Speedy Boarding took her second Group 1 in the Prix de l’Opera, despite a gallant last minute rally from Godolphin’s Pleascach, who came within a short head of regaining the lead in the final strides. These two fillies had been more or less in front from the start and So Mi Dar who found herself a few lengths off the lead and trapped on the rails for a moment could never make up the lost ground. Paul Jacobs’ Limato put up an even better performance when racing away from his rivals to win the Prix de la Forêt by 3l. Always just behind the leader he quickened clear with 2f to run and won comfortably, while the placed horses Karar, Suedois and Jimmy Two Times got in each other’s way behind him. The Acclamation filly Marsha and the Zoffany colt Washington DC completed an unusual first and second for three-yearolds in the Prix de l’Abbaye, and Quest For More produced the come-from-behind performance of the weekend to get up in the final strides and short head Vazirabad to take the Prix du Cadran.

The beginning of October saw the major trial races in the US for the Breeders’ Cup, due to be held at Santa Anita in November, writes Melissa Bauer-Herzog, while three freshman sires are beginning to reveal their Grade 1-producing class Freshman stallion Winstar Farm’s Gemologist (Tiznow) became a Grade 1 sire when Yellow Agate, his most expensive filly sold at auction so far, won the Frizette Stakes

Breeders’ Cup ahead W “ hile the end of the year is rapidly approaching, October saw a major push of quality racing as horses pointing for the 2016 Breeders’ Cup squared up in their final prep races. Tapit was one of seven sires to have two winners in the 37 major Breeders’ Cup prep races taking place at five different tracks across the US and Canada spread across three weekends. His two winners, Anchor Down in the Kelso Handicap (G2), and Golden Hawk, out of a full-sister to leading sire Speightstown, in the Grey Stakes (G3) came on the final weekend of preps. In the first two weeks of preps, the Number 3-ranked sire Curlin shook up multiple divisions with his winners. Connect’s half-length win in the Pennsylvania Derby (G2) added even more confusion to the wide-open three-yearold male division when both Nyquist and Exaggerator finished mid-pack in the race. The following week Curlin’s Stellar Wind became a leading contender for the older Dirt female championship when beating Beholder for the second time in three starts in the Zenyatta Stakes. Stellar Wind looks like the second older horse who has an Eclipse award pretty much sealed. California Chrome, who hasn’t taken a step wrong all year, is single-handedly keeping his sire in the top five on the leading sires’ list with his latest demolition of the California male division coming in the Awesome Again Stakes by two and a quarter lengths. The leading two-year-old sire War Front continued his 2016 successes in the Rodeo Drive at Santa Anita, a race that put a dent in his reputation as merely a sire of two-yearolds. Chasing a third consecutive win, the four-year-old Avenge justified her $650,000 yearling price tag when holding off Zipessa to win the Rodeo Drive for her first Grade 1 victory. War Front nearly pulled off a Santa Anita

War Front nearly pulled off a Grade 1 double, but was foiled by his own son when Noted And Quoted gave The Factor his first Grade 1 winner

Grade 1 double, but was foiled by his own son when Noted And Quoted gave The Factor his first Grade 1 winner, with the War Front colt With Honors half a length behind. The Factor was the first horse to put War Front on the map as a major sire so it’s only fitting that his first Grade 1 as a sire came with a War Front runner in second. Other freshman sires made their presence felt throughout Breeders’ Cup prep season with Union Rags leading the charge. The leading freshman sire as of early October, Union Rags already has two Grade 1 winners to his name with Union Strike winning the Del Mar Debutante in early September and Dancing Rags opening up Keeneland’s Fall Stars weekend with a length victory in the Darley Alcibiades, the first of two Grade 1 wins for trainer Graham Motion over that weekend. In the Frizette Stakes at Belmont Park, freshman sire Gemologist joined the Grade 1 gang with Yellow Agate. The most expensive filly by Gemologist at auction last year Yellow Agate sold for $210,000 at Keeneland September to China Horse Club. Fittingly, she provided the ownership group with its first Grade 1 winner in North America. Into Mischief’s five crops of racing age have provided him with some great horses, but 2016 seems to be a standout year for the stallion. The stallion’s five stakes winners include standout two-year-old Practical Joke, who followed up his Hopeful victory in September

www.internationalthoroughbred.net

us racing with an October Champagne victory over highly regarded Syndergaard. In doing so he became one of the favourites for the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile. Practical Joke was bred on a $7,500 stud fee, down from the $12,500 advertised fee Into Mischief stood at when Vyjack was conceived at in 2009. Vyjack has been a regular on the stakes scene since 2012, but it wasn’t until the City Of Hope Stakes in October that he put his best foot forward. A few hours after his half-sister Tepin had her win streak ended by Photo Call in the First Lady at Keeneland, Vyjack won the mile Turf City Of Hope in a time of 1min31.69, breaking Wise Dan’s 2012 Breeders’ Cup Mile record of 1min31.78. With both Tepin and Vyjack heading to the Breeders’ Cup, their dam Life Happened will become the 18th mare to have multiple horses run in the same Breeders’ Cup. Tepin’s loss in the First Lady was the second time trainer Todd Pletcher had played major upsetter in two weeks.

A

t Belmont Park, Ectot beat Breeders’ Cup Turf favourite Flintshire by 5l on yielding ground after a front-running ride by Jose Ortiz. That same style was then employed by Kent Desormeaux on Photo Call in the First Lady and she even led by as much as 10l, eventually winning by two and three quarter lengths. The victory was the fifth Grade or Group 1 win since October 1 for sire Galileo, but the first in North America through that period. Shades of the previous year’s Breeders’ Cup Classic at Keeneland were seen in the Claiborne Breeders’ Futurity with a Pioneerof the Nile son out of a Storm Cat-line mare visiting the winners’ circle. A $475,000 Keeneland yearling purchase, the ring only a few hundred feet from the track, Classic Empire built a bit of a reputation at Saratoga in the Hopeful Stakes when wheeling at the start as he broke from the gate and dumping his jockey. With a new jockey aboard and the addition of blinkers, Classic Empire ran straight this time and easily won by 3l to become his sire’s second Grade 1 winner of the year.

Every horse who won a Grade 1 on the weekend of October 8 had gone through the Keeneland sales ring at some point in their life Every horse who won a Grade 1 on the weekend of October 8 had gone through the Keeneland sales ring at some point in their life, but Miss Temple City boosted the credentials of two going through the ring at Fasig-Tipton in November with her victory in the Shadwell Turf Mile over the males. She became the second horse, alongside Wise Dan, and the first filly to win both of Keeneland’s premier mile races in the same year with the Shadwell Turf Mile win. Both her dam Glittering Tax and full-sister Pricedtoperfection are selling at the November sale and their consignors will be rooting for Miss Temple City to win the Breeders’ Cup Mile. It isn’t rare to see South Korea purchasing stallions from the US and Breeders’

Cup prep season showed that the investors are on the right track. South Korea purchased Any Given Saturday in late 2014 and Divine Park earlier this year. In less than two and a half hours, Divine Park’s Lady Eli won the Grade 1 Flower Bowl after successfully beating laminitis, Any Given Saturday’s Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint winner Mongolian Saturday won the Woodford Stakes and Hoppertunity took the Grade 1 Jockey Club Gold Cup. South Korea had a lot of cause to celebrate in the last few weeks with Hansen’s Han Sense second in the Grey Stakes and Tiz Wonderful doubling up on seconds with Quezon in the Gallant Bloom and Libby’s Tail in the Frizette. South Korea has made some big stallion acquisitions in the US this year, most recently 2008 Travers Stakes winner Colonel John. The winning run for Tepin (Bernstein), came to an end in the First Lady Stakes thanks to Photo Call (Galileo). Tepin is still heading to the Breeders’ Cup and dam Life Happened (Stravinsky) could also have Vyjack (Into Mischief) running for her

T

he identity of the best equine effort in the world in the period from mid-September to mid-October seems to come down to a straight choice between California Chrome’s crushing of Dortmund at Santa Anita – an Awesome Again performance in more senses than one – and the imperious success of Almanzor in the Champion Stakes at Ascot. Timeform has those wins rated at 132 on bare form, but both horses almost certainly could have run quite a bit better still. The ease of California Chrome’s victory sees him lifted to 136, while sectional analysis points to Almanzor being potentially capable of similar. The 2016 Flat year is proving special, and we have not even had the Breeders’ Cup yet! Almanzor was making it five wins in a row with a 2l defeat of Found, having beaten that filly by three-quarters of a length in the Irish Champion Stakes (G1) at Leopardstown in September. Found herself had led home a 1-2-3 for trainer Aidan O’Brien in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe at Chantilly in between, running a personal best of 129. Another O’Brien filly, Minding, had been third at Leopardstown and took the other really big race on the British Champions Day card, the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes (G1), by half a length from Ribchester. That was Minding’s fifth Group 1 success of the year, and earned her a new high of 127. All the form lines connected to the Irish Champion are notably solid. The successes at Ascot of The Tin Man in the Sprint and of Journey

in the Fillies & Mares were not quite so meritorious, but still both garnered a figure of 123. The former race was depleted by the absence of Limato, despite conditions seeming ideal, after the gelding had won the Prix de la Forêt (G1) on the Arc undercard with authority by 3l, running to 129. That Arc Meeting – switched from its usual home at Longchamp while that course is under development – also saw notable wins from Quest For More (Prix du Cadran, ran to 118), Speedy Boarding (Prix de l’Opera, 117) and Marsha (Prix de l’Abbaye, 121), with the first two additionally finishing second at Ascot a fortnight later. California Chrome has been knocking out top-level wins with metronomic consistency this year – six out of six and counting at the time of writing – but some other events on the track in North America reminded us of the “glorious uncertainty” of racing. Tepin got the job done, yet again, in the Woodbine Mile (G1), but then suffered a Quest For More (Teofilo) was impressive in the Prix du Cadran, and just lost out the British Champion Stayers to Sheikhzayedroad (Dubawi)

simon says shock defeat by Photo Call in the First Lady Stakes at Keeneland, a performance which split opinion. Timeform has Photo Call running to 119, with Tepin 15 below her best of 127, though some clock-watchers were much more impressed by the former than that. Meanwhile, Flintshire (rated 128 at his best) got turned over by 123-rated Ectot on rain-softened ground in the Joe Hirsch Turf Classic (G1) at Belmont. The glorious uncertainty somehow does not seem to trouble the likes of top females Winx and Songbird, rated 128 and 130 respectively. The former is sweeping all before her in Australia with recent wins at Randwick and Caulfield making it 12 in a row; the latter is unbeaten in 11 in the US, most recently when trouncing 123-rated Carina Mia in the Cotillion Stakes (G1) at Parx. Winx may shortly face sterner opposition in the Cox Plate from, among others, the ex-Brit Hartnell, now rated 127 after a decisive win over Jameka (who has landed the Caulfield Cup since). Songbird looks likely to encounter the 129-rated Stellar Wind and 128-rated Beholder – who fought out the finish of the

Zenyatta Stakes at Santa Anita recently – in what should be an epic Breeders’ Cup Distaff. The Japanese challenge for the Arc, in the form of Makahiki, ended in abject disappointment, but back at home there was a notable success for Red Falx in a tight finish for the Sprinters Stakes at Nakayama. The five-year-old entire is no Lord Kanaloa (who won this in 2013 and ended up rated 133), but a figure of 121 is not to be sniffed at either.

T

he card on which Tepin won the Woodbine Mile and the one at the same track which features the Canadian International vie for billing as best of the year in Canada. The latter race lived up fully to its title this year, with French-trained Erupt running to 122 in defeating British-trained Dartmouth (120) with Irish-trained favourite Idaho slightly disappointing in fifth. This is the time of year when the pecking order among northern hemisphere two-yearolds really starts to get sorted out, of course. Among European-based juveniles, the Aidan O’Brien-trained pair Caravaggio (sidelined since August) and Churchill (a recent winner of the Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket) lead the way among colts, with ratings of 123 and 120 respectively. Criquette Head-Maarek’s National

Defense earned a 118 figure for a clear-cut win in the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardère, having met his only defeat at the hands of Akihiro (rated 112) on the same course in September. O’Brien’s Rhododendron may be just about best among some closely-matched fillies, posting a 118 rating for an emphatic win in the Fillies’ Mile (G1) at Newmarket. The same stable’s Brave Anna (rated 115) won the strongly-run Cheveley Park Stakes (G1) on the same course, but this was a race in which 127-rated US challenger Lady Aurelia clearly failed to see out the sixth furlong. The situation in the US should become much clearer after the Breeders’ Cup. For now, Grade 1-winning colts Classic Empire (Breeders’ Futurity at Keeneland, rated 116), Gormley (Frontrunner Stakes at Santa Anita, 119) and Practical Joke (Champagne Stakes at Belmont, 117) rate highly, as do Klimt and Syndergaard (both 118), who were arguably unlucky in second behind the last-two-named. The Todd Pletcher-trained Syndergaard seemed to do especially well beaten just a nose after setting a furious pace in the Champagne. The Mark Casse-trained La Coronel (rated 121) could be best among the fillies following an easy win in a Grade 3 at Keeneland. Things are winding down in Europe, but there is much to be played for across the Atlantic.

Hermosa potra!

The story of Spain Burg, this year’s Rockfel winner and Arc Sale €1.5 million filly, writes Jocelyn de Moubray, brings together a trainer based in the south-west of France, and the US businessman Dean Reeves, owner of Breeders’ Cup Classic winner and Adena Springs stallion Mucho Macho Man

R

acing and bloodstock sales can pull together people from very different worlds. Xavier Thomas Demeaulte and Dean Reeves met at the Arqana Arc sale, held this year in Robert Collet’s Chantilly stable. Dean Reeves, known in the racing world as the owner of Mucho Macho Man, and the chairman and co-owner of ReevesYoung, an Atlanta-based commercial construction company, shook hands with Thomas Demeaulte after signing the ticket at €1,500,000 for Spain Burg, a two-year-old filly whom Thomas Demeaulte trained to win the Group 2 Rockfel Stakes in Newmarket only a week earlier. Atlanta is a long way from Mont de Marsan in the south-west of France where Demeaulte has been based since starting training on his own account in 2002. The two very different racing destinies which were to meet at the Arc sale had, of course, started some years before. Reeves’s first contact with the sport came in 1976 when he went to the Kentucky Derby, but he only took this interest a stage further after

60

spending a holiday with long-time racing enthusiasts Bob and Esther Ades in 2007. In 2009 Reeves and is wife Patti formed Reeves Thoroughbred Racing and bought their first horses on their own. The following year he was called by trainer Tim Ritvo. “He said he had seen a very interesting two-year-old winning at Calder and that I had to watch the race,” remembers Reeves. “He stressed that with horses-in-training you have to make up your mind and move fast or the opportunity would be gone. “I watched the race and called him back and said that, he would think I was crazy, but I kinda like the second horse and not the winner. He told me I was crazy, but he would watch the race again and get back to me. “He called right back, and said he would find out quick if we could buy the second horse – that horse was Mucho Macho Man.” Mucho Macho Man is a June 15 foal and so in many ways it was surprising that he was running at two at all. In the colours of Reeves Thoroughbred Racing and then trained by Kathy Ritvo he went on to finish second in two Grade 2s at Aqueduct at the end of his juvenile career.

spain burg At three he won the Grade 2 Risen Star Stakes at Fair Grounds, finished third to Animal Kingdom in the Kentucky Derby and then went on to run in both the Preakness and the Belmont, all this before he had passed his third birthday. At four, Mucho Macho Man continued to improve winning Grade 2s at Gulfstream and Belmont before finishing second, beaten only a half-length, in the Breeders’ Cup Classic at Santa Anita. In the autumn of his five-year-old career the son of Macho Uno reached his peak winning a Grade 1 at Santa Anita by four and a half lengths in September and the Breeders’ Cup Classic at the same track in November when he narrowly prevailed in a three-way photo finish with Will Take Charge and Declaration Of War.

...after I had stopped bidding at a high level on yearling fillies who were making close to a million dollars, I asked myself whether this was the right way to go?

He retired to Frank Stronarch’s Adena Springs, Kentucky in 2015 with nine wins, 11 places from 25 starts and earnings of $5.6 million. Having an interest in a stallion got Reeves thinking about breeding. “It was only then when we can began talking about Mucho Macho Man’s stallion career that I realised how important it was to have some of those really good mares,”Reeves explains. “Mucho Macho Man’s first foals are fantastic and I am not going to be selling any of mine, in fact I shall probably be buying some weanlings in November, but I started to look at ways of getting hold of some top females.” The next step was to go to the Keeneland September Sale and look at some of the better fillies on offer.

“It was after I had stopped bidding at a high level on yearling fillies who were making close to a million dollars that I asked myself whether this was the right way to go?” From there he began to think about buying a proven filly and then he came across the catalogue for the Arc sale in Chantilly. The catalogue included three fillies who won Group races after being entered – Toulifaut, Spain Burg and Sans Equivoque. At the last minute Reeves decided not to go to his second home on the Turks and Caicos Island over the first weekend in October as planned, but instead to travel to Paris. In a different way Demeaulte’s path to the Arc sale was a most unusual one. He was born in Tehran and until the age of 15 lived in Africa, mainly in Nigeria and the Ivory Coast where his parents worked. His parents returned to France to live not too far from Chantilly and by a strange coincidence he was introduced to racing. “I did some show jumping in the Ivory Coast,” explains Demeaulte, “but when we were back in France my coach told me that, if I wanted to ride horses without paying, he had a friend who was a permit trainer in Chantilly. “I called, went to ride out and was taken over by the racing passion from the word go.” He went through business school in France followed by a year in Barcelona, returning to

Chantilly fluent in Spanish and working for Francois Doumen. From 1997 to 2001 he was based with Carlos Laffon-Parias leaving at the end of the year to set up as a trainer on his own in Mont-de-Marsan in the south-west of France. “At the time racing in Spain was booming and I wanted to be close to Spain,” he explains, “and I had realised that racing away from Paris was becoming more and more important, and that I was not going to have the owners to set up in Chantilly.” His first runner Ewing Star was his first winner in January 2002 at Mont-de-Marsan. “And,” he remembers with pride, “Jean Claude Rouget finished second and Francois Rohaut third!” Demeaulte’s career had got off to flying start, but just over year later everything very nearly came to an end. In July 2003, Demeaulte fell out of a hayloft, head first. He spent a month maintained in an artificial coma while his doctors tried to make sure he was going to recover his capacities. The stable continued in his absence and even managed to have 11 winners that year. “We had to keep going,” he says, “otherwise it would have been over. We found out who

www.internationalthoroughbred.net

63


spain burg the good people were, they were the ones who stayed with us.” Miraculously Demeaulte’s health recovered and so did the stable’s fortunes. In 2012 he won a race at Meydan for the Dubai-based Prime Equestrian and the same year Sunday Nectar was only narrowly beaten in the Oak Tree Stakes at Goodwood. In 2013 he won his first Group 1 in Italy with Shamalgan and his stable had started winning between 30 and 50 races a year. The Spain Burg story began at the 2007 Deauville October sale when Demeaulte purchased her dam Spain Blues for €12,000 from Haras d’Ellon. “At the time I was keen on her sire Anabaa Blue whose first two-year-olds had made a good start that year,” he remembers. “Ellon is a good stud and she comes from an excellent family. Her dam is a half-sister to two good fillies of the Niarchos family and this is the family of Common Grounds, as well as Kris Kin and many others.”

Flying filly and jockey: Frankie Dettori celebrates the Rockfel win

I was sure 7f would be Spain Burg’s best trip at two and there were no suitable races for her in France

nitially Spain Blues, who had been bought for a Spanish client Perez Fernandez de la Puente, was a disappointment. “She is bigger than her daughter had a much more difficult temperament and was very backward. I only managed to run her once at two and then I even ran her in a claimer at three when she was still a maiden. “She then suddenly clicked and went on to win two big handicaps and more than €150,000 in prize-money.” In 2013 when Spain Blues was in-foal to Sageburg, carrying Spain Burg, Fernandez de la Puente decided he couldn’t continue with his racing and breeding given the economic crisis in Spain and so all his horses went through the ring at Arqana. Demeaulte bought back Spain Blues for only €11,000 and sold half of her to another Spanish client, Roberto Cocheteux Tierno. “Spain Burg was different from very early on,” Demeaulte says. “I remember watching her in a field at the Haras du Berlais where I keep my two half mares and both Jean Marc Lucas, [the owner of the stud] and I thought she looked something special. “She came into the stable in October as a yearling and everything went smoothly and

trip at two and there were no suitable races for her in France and so, encouraged by my English friends, I decided to aim her for the Rockfel Stakes in Newmarket in September and to enter her in the Arc sale.” Spain Burg started at 14-1 in the Rockfel despite that fact that Frankie Dettori had been offered and accepted the ride. Once Dettori had succeeded in settling her she was always going like a winner and she cruised past all of her rivals in the climb to win by a comfortable length and a quarter.

quickly from the word go. She was my first two-year-old runner of the year and the first winner when she beat experienced horses on her debut at the end of April. “She was beaten on her next start only because her jockey lost his irons and couldn’t stop her pulling, but even then she was beaten by the Group 2 filly Boos to who she was giving two kilos. “She won her next start in a canter, came from behind to win her Listed race over 6f at the beginning of August. I then stopped to think about where she could go next. “I was sure 7f would be Spain Burg’s best

Afterwards Dettori announced to the press that she had felt like a potential Classic filly. Spain Burg and her dam together had been valued at only €11,000 two years earlier, but once she went to Chantilly it was obvious she was going to make a lot of money. Racing fillies with her potential don’t come on the market very often, although if she had gone to the sale without the trip to Newmarket she would, of course, had made only a fraction of her final price. After Reeves had beaten off opposition from fellow US owners, he reported that his new filly would be trained by Ritvo and her first target will be the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies’ Turf. Demeaulte was, of course, very sad not to have the opportunity of training Spain Burg for the 1,000 Guineas himself. “I hope Mr Reeves is very lucky with her,” he says, adding, “and that she wins the Breeders’ Cup and many other top races for him – after all I still have the mare in partnership with M. Cocheteux Tierno! “She was barren and then this year lost both the twins she was carrying but she will be going to a good stallion in 2016!” Reeves was thrilled with his first visit to Chantilly. “I had a great time,” he says, “am looking forward to the Breeders’ Cup and then we may even bring Spain Burg back to France next year.”

Donn McClean chats with jockey Harry Bentley, who explains how useful his winter riding exploits in Qatar have been for his career and how this summer he has reaped the rewards of just being in the “right place at the right time”

J

ust shows you how things can work out sometimes. Harry Bentley was on his way home from Paris last October, after the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe meeting. He was at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris, walking to the gate to board his plane home, when he fell into step with Henry Candy and Paul Jacobs, trainer and owner of Limato. Most of the talk was obviously about Limato, who had just run in the Group 1 Prix de la Forêt, running a cracking race under Ryan Moore to finish second to Make Believe. It was never going to be easy for Limato that day from stall nine, he had to come wide,

he had to come around all his rivals, while the winner got a lovely run around the inside, so it was a massive run to finish second. Even so, the fact that Limato ran five times last year, and was ridden by four different riders, was not lost on Bentley. Two weeks later, he was riding a horse belonging to Paul Jacobs’ at Chelmsford, and the owner asked him afterwards if he could commit to riding Limato for him in 2016. He didn’t need to ask twice. “It was a case of right place, right time,” says Bentley, downplaying the talent part. Push him a little though. “Well, Paul must have liked the way

But Paul wanted a jockey who could commit to the horse, and he wanted a jockey with whom he could discuss his horses that I was riding. But Paul wanted a jockey who could commit to the horse, and he wanted a jockey with whom he could discuss his horses. I chat with Paul a lot now, we get on well.” Limato and Bentley have had a fine season together, the obvious highlights for them the scintillating performance that they put up in winning the Group 1 July Cup at Newmarket and the ease with which the Forêt success was gained. Indeed, that victory remains one of the stand-out performances from any horse this season so far. “I was obviously very excited about Limato at the start of the year,” says Bentley. “He was still fairly lightly-raced, just a four-year-old, a Group 2 winner, and I thought that he would be well capable of winning a Group 1.” They tried him over a mile on his seasonal return, they raced him in the Group 1 Lockinge Stakes. The punters sent him off as favourite and, while he ran a commendable race, he could only finish fourth, over 2l behind the winner Belardo. “You couldn’t say that he didn’t stay the mile,” says the rider. “He travelled really well, he was the last horse off the bridle, but he just ran on at the same speed.” Trainer Henry Candy and owner Paul Jacobs seemed to agree, because the immediate announced target for Limato after the Lockinge was the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot over a mile, not the Diamond Jubilee Stakes over 6f. As it turned out, the rain ruined all Limato’s Royal Ascot plans, he didn’t run in either race. Then the July Cup appeared on the horizon. Fast ground, 6f: perfect. “He gave me some thrill in the July Cup,” recalls Bentley. “The ease with which he travelled, the acceleration that he showed. And it was a strong race. “It was a real Group 1 race. I had never before experienced acceleration like that on the back of a horse. The feel that he gave me, that was some thrill.”

harry bentley Until Bentley’s July Cup victory, his Qatar win in the Emirs Trophy on The Blue Eye was his most valuable, proving how important the Qatari link and the winter riding regime has been to the jockey’s career

I’m very lucky that I ride for some great people in Qatar. The quality of racing is increasing there all the time, they are getting better horses every year Bentley had ridden big-race winners before – he had won the Lillie Langtry Stakes on Simple Verse and he had won the Prestige Stakes on Hawksmoor. Also, in Qatar, he had won the Qatar Derby on Dubday and in February he won the Group 1 Emirs Trophy on The Blue Eye. But when he rode Limato to victory in the July Cup, he was recording his first Group 1 victory in Britain, and, somewhat unsurprisingly, he counted that as the best of his career so far. Then Limato was dynamite again in the Prix de la Foret at Chantilly on Arc day.

S

o the Qatar thing is going well. Bentley has been champion jockey there for the last three seasons, 105 winners in 2015, which is more than any other rider has ever ridden there in a season. He won his third championship last year despite the fact that he was out for six weeks, having broken his foot in a stalls incident last November. “I’m very lucky that I ride for some great people in Qatar. The quality of racing is increasing there all the time, they are getting better horses every year, and I have been lucky to ride a few big winners there.” He rides mainly for trainer Julian Smart, who excels with Arabian horses, and Jassim Al Ghazali, for whom he won the Qatar Derby on Dubday and the Emirs Trophy on The Blue Eye. And it works well. The Qatar season runs from the end of October until the middle of May. Bentley rides in Britain until the November Handicap meeting, then rides in Qatar during the winter, basing himself in Dubai. He returns to Britain after the Dubai World Cup. “It’s busy here in Britain from that time of year,” he says.“I couldn’t really leave it any

harry bentley later to return. I’m in Henry Candy’s once a week, and I’m with Roger Varian probably three or four times a week. Roger has a lot of horses, he doesn’t really have set work days, it’s just busy all the time. But it’s great.” Bentley has packed plenty into the first 24 years of his life. His rise through the ranks since he took out his apprenticeship with Gary Moore as a 16-year-old has been sharp. His spell with Sheikh Fahad’s Qatar Racing was probably shorter-lived than many expected, but he learned lots during that time, and he has kicked on again. No point getting older if you are not going to get wiser. Now, he has good horses to ride in the west and the east, he British and French Group 1s win in the bag, and he has lots to look forward to for the rest of the season. “Limato was brilliant in the Prix de la Foret,” he says. “He is on track for the Breeders’ Cup now, and its seems as though the Mile is the favoured race. He has so much pace, it will suit.”

pivotal and kyllachy broodmare sires Pivotal has enjoyed a wonderful career as a stallion, and is making a considerable mark now as a broodmare sire

Two for the ladies N

Pivotal has been a successful sire and broodmare sire, and his son Kyllachy has chances of following in his footsteps. Alan Porter reviews the father and son team at Cheveley Park Stud and looks at the crosses that have have produced stakes performers 74

www.internationalthoroughbred.net

ow 23-years-old, Pivotal has long been one of the standouts of the English stallion ranks, in fact he’s been the leading UK sire six times. With five sons who have sired Group or Grade 1 winners, he is also the prime candidate to extend the male-line of his grandsire, Nureyev. Pivotal has a current hot young son in French-based Siyouni, but we should not overlook his stud mate and son Kyllachy, who has turned out to be one of the most consistent sprint sires around. Like his sire, Kyllachy was a pure

speedster. A maiden winner in two starts at three, Kyllachy made progress at three when four outings saw him win a 5f handicap by 5l, and take second in the Prix du Cercle. He made a much more significant jump from three to four when he earned honours as a champion European sprinter, winning four of five races, including the Nunthorpe Stakes (G1), Temple Stakes (G2) and Palace House Stakes (G3), whilst he also took third in the King’s Stand Stakes (G2). The distaff side of Kyllachy’s pedigree is full of which we might call “traditional English sprinting blood” notably Tudor Minstrel, Fair Trial (both from the same


pivotal and kyllachy broodmare sires Kyllachy has produced three Group 1 winners as a stallion, and has every chance of following his father’s lead particuarly as he has access to the Cheveley Park quality broodmare band

family) and Gold Bridge/Sir Cosmo. His dam is by the outstanding sprinter Song (by Sing Sing, from the Tudor Minstrel line, out of a Gold Bridge line mare), and his grand-dam is by another sprinter Crooner and is a Fair Trial/Sir Cosmo cross. In this context it might be interesting that Nureyev’s dam Thong is by Forli, a horse inbred to Fair Trial and three-quarters sister Riot, and has a second dam by Gold Bridge.

Kyllachy: a sire of talented racehorses

Kyllachy led off with a strong first crop that contained six stakes winners, headed by Arabian Gleam, who captured the Challenge Stakes (G2) and two runnings of the Park Stakes (G2), Tariq, whose successes included the Lennox Stakes (G2) and Jersey Stakes (G3), Mood Music, winner of the Prix de Saint-Georges Stakes (G3) and also a Listed winner in Germany and Italy, as well

as Algol, who was renamed Dim Sum and became a sprint star in Hong Kong. The supply of talented sprinters has continued, and in addition to those mentioned above they include a trio of genuine stars in Sole Power, successful in nine Group or Graded stakes races, including a brace of victories in the King’s Stand Stakes (G1) and Nunthorpe Stakes (G1), with a win in the Alquoz Sprint (G1) as well. There is also Krypton Factor, who scored in Dubai taking the Golden Shaheen (G1), and Twilight Son, who has been one of the top English sprinters of the last two seasons with victories in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes (G1) and Haydock Sprint Cup (G1). Sole Power and Krypton Factor are both geldings, but Twilight Son, who is part-owned by Cheveley Park Stud, will retire to succeed his sire and grandsire. Among his other Group winners are Dragon Pulse, a stakes sire with his first

runners this year, Arabian Gleam, Penitent, Stepper Point, Tariq  and Supplicant.

Kyllachy: mixing it up well with Mr. Prospector-line mares

Somewhat surprisingly for a European sire, Kyllachy’s most prolific cross has been with Mr. Prospector-line mares. Sole Power is out of a mare by Distant View, his Group winner Killachy Loose out of a mare by Vettori (Machiavellian), the Group winner Kachy and stakes winner Zapel are both out of daughters of the Kingmambo horse Dubai Destination, giving inbreeding to Kyllachy’s male line ancestor, Nureyev. His Listed winners Pausania and Zenella are from daughters of Gone West. Interestingly enough, Dragon Pulse’s first stakes winner Legendary Lunch is also out of a Mr. Prospector-line mare – his dam is a daughter of the Woodman horse, Hansel.

pivotal and kyllachy broodmare sires Gone West’s family, that of the Tudor Minstrel mare Mixed Marriage, also shows up in two other sire lines that have worked under Pivotal. Sharpen Up’s sire Atan was by Native Dancer (in the male-line of Gone West) out of Mixed Marriage, so a half-brother to Gone West’s second dam. From Sharpen Up line mares, Kyllachy has sired the Group 1 winner and Group 1-placed Tariq (dam by Selkirk), the Group winner Noble Hachy and the 2016 two-year-old stakes winner Mujadil Lachy from daughters of Daggers Drawn (Diesis); and the Group winner Gracia Directa out of a mare by Common Grounds (Kris). Sharpen Up appears in 11 of Kyllachy’s stakes winners, and Zenella’s dam is by Gone West out of a Sharpen Up mare, and so 4x4 to Mixed Marriage. Known Fact, out of Mixed Marriage’s daughter, Tamerett, is halfbrother to the dam of Gone West. The Group-winning siblings Supplicant and Penitent are out of a mare by Known Fact’s grandson Bishop Of Cashel (dam by Sadler’s Wells, a three-quarters brother to Nureyev), and go back to Sharpen Up’s

excellent sprinting daughter Smarten Up, so also doubling the Mixed Marriage family. Sole Power also has a second dam by Known Fact’s son, Warning (the sire of Bishop Of Cashel)

Kyllachy: Blushing Groom line has rewarded

Less prolific, but very effective, has been the cross with Blushing Groom line mares that has produced Twilight Son (dam by Bin Ajwaad) and Dragon Pulse (dam by Croco Rouge). Both Bin Ajwaad and Croco Rouge are by Rainbow Quest, whose grand-dam Where You Lead is also the grand-dam of Known Fact. Twilight Son’s dam is also interesting in the context of “old English sprinting strains” in that she has four crosses of Tudor Minstrel, and Bin Ajwaad’s broodmare sire, Sallust, is a Fair Trial/Gold Bridge cross. Twilight Son is also a horse whose pedigree is going invite some interesting matings when he retires. Crossing Kyllachy over mares from his own immediate branch of Northern Dancer,

that of Nureyev, has come up with Krypton Factor and the stakes winner Kyllachy Queen. Krypton Factor is out of a mare by Kyllachy’s own grandsire Polar Falcon and to add to the inbreeding his second dam is by Efisio, who is by a son of Nureyev’s maternal grandsire, Forli. Kyllachy Queen is out of a mare by Nureyev’s son King Charlemagne and her dam is by Cadeaux Genereux, a Tudor Minstrel-line horse out of the previously mentioned Sharpen up mare, Smarten Up. The cross with mares from the Danzig branch of Northern Dancer has produced Arabian Gleam (out of a mare by Danehill) and Mabait (out of a mare by Polish Precedent). Arabian Gleam’s dam is a parallel Northern Dancer/Sing Sing cross to Kyllachy, and his grand-dam is inbred 3x3 to Sing Sing. The cross of Kyllachy with mares from the male line of Nureyev’s three-quarters-brother Sadler’s Wells has come up with just one stakes winner, Algol/Dim Sum, who is out of a daughter of In The Wings. The other Kyllachy stakes winner out of a Northern Dancer mare is Blue Echo, whose

Twilight Son (right) takes the Haydock Sprint Cup, and gives stallion Kyllachy his third Group 1 winner. Twilight Son will retire to Cheveley Park Stud

pivotal and kyllachy broodmare sires dam is by Bellypha (Lyphard), but we can also note the presence of Sharpen Up again as broodmare sire of the dam.

Kyllachy: a range of lines too

Kyllachy’s other stakes winners are out of mares from a range of sire lines. The Group 2 winner Stepper Point is from a mare by Compton Place (Indian Ridge), Group 3 winner Mood Music from a mare by Petong (by the Nasrullah line horse, Mansingh, while the Group 3 winner Ashadihan is out of a mare by A.P Indy’s son, Malibu Moon. His stakes-winning siblings Sadeek and Dubai Dynamo are out of a mare by Law Society (Alleged); the stakes winner Corrybrough is out of a mare by Clantime. He is from Kyllachy’s own Sing Sing broodmare sire line. Red Gulch, inbred 4x4 to Nureyev and out of a mare by Lear Fan, a Roberto son whose broodmare sire Lt. Stevens is a brother to Thong, the grand-dam of Nureyev. Barleysugar is out of a mare by Pivotal’s broodmare sire, Cozzene.

Kyllachy: mixing it well with Danzig as a broodmare sire

In addition to his deeds as a sire, Pivotal is also a highly successful broodmare sire with 50 stakes winners, including the US champion turf horse Main Sequence, and Group and Grade 1 winners Mayson, The United States and Winsili. Kyllachy is also off to a good start in that role, and he is already broodmare sire of 12 stakes winners. His star so far is the Group 1 winner Garswood, who is by Dutch Art, a is grandson of Machiavellian, making this a reverse cross to Killachy Loose. Another from the Mr. Prospector line out of Kyllachy mares is the Group winner Moonstone Magic (by Trade Fair, a son of Zafonic). There are three stakes winners on a Danzig/Kyllachy cross: Group winner Bear Cheek (Kodiac), Quiz Evolution (Mujahid) and this year’s juvenile black-type winner Mrs Danvers (Hellvelyn). Richmond Stakes (G2) winner Saayerr is by Acclamation; last year’s Railway Stakes (G2) scorer Painted Cliffs is a son of Canford Cliffs; and French Group winner Queen Bee is by Le Havre, a horse whose dam is half-sister to Polar Falcon, the grandsire of Kyllachy.

steve cargill

The man behind the lens 80

www.internationalthoroughbred.net


steve cargill Steve’s photography breakthrough came when an picture of the Champion Hurdler Morley Street he had sent in hope to the Sporting Life ahead of the NH season was used... on no less than the front page!

Steve Cargill, in his own words, “has never had a proper job”. He is a lucky guy, he has forged a career out of his passion – taking photographs of racehorses. He has always been a freelance photographer, and, after joining the committee of the Horserace Writers and Photographers Association in 2006, he became its president in 2011 Did you have a background in racing?

Not at all, my Mum and Dad just liked going racing. We would go to Doncaster, where we were members, and Wetherby and Market Rasen with very occasional visits to other courses. The St Leger is my favourite race, because I’m from Doncaster. On St Leger day children under 11 weren’t allowed into members, so I couldn’t go until 1981. The week before that visit they announced on TV that Shergar was going to run in the St Leger, so I was very excited, but he got beat and I couldn’t believe it! In those days I wasn’t taking pictures, I was just in the members in the top of the grandstand, it was just an amazing crowd atmosphere and it’s still my favourite day.

At what point did you start to take photographs?

When I was 15, when we went racing as a family. I got my first camera specifically to take pictures of horseracing. It was a Praktica, one shot, no automatic winder or anything. I actually started as a professional with that camera, I even took photographs of Group 1 Flat races with one shot. However, probably less than a year into officially being a professional photographer, I upgraded and got something with a motor drive!

How did you make the leap from enthusiast to professional photographer?

After sixth form, I didn’t have a job, and at

that time I didn’t necessarily want to be a photographer. I knew I wanted to be in racing, in the press, not so much as a journalist, but I liked the closeup reviews, Timeform and so on. I applied to Weatherbys and places such as there, but never got anywhere. I was still going racing and taking photos, though I never actually considered that as a profession. One or two people said that I should, so in the summer of 1992, I had a few prints made up from the previous season’s jump racing. By that stage I was going on day trips to Cheltenham as you could get down to the fences. Once I’d got about 30 or 40 prints together, I sent them into the Sporting Life with a note saying something along the lines of ‘‘hopefully you might be able to use some of these when the jump season starts”. They did and the first one they used was on the front page as a preview for Morley Street running against Granville Again; it was a big deal at the time and that was my first picture usage.

So how did you progress from there?

The Unemployment Office dragged me in one day and asked me what I wanted to do. I told them about the photography and that I was getting a few of my pictures published so they suggested I went on the Enterprise Allowance Scheme. After a four-week course people on the scheme had to give them a business plan and, if they approved it, you got the equivalent of your unemployment benefit for a year, regardless of whether you were earning or not. That was the official start of it.

steve cargill With limited income, how did you afford to get to and racing around the country?

It wasn’t as expensive to travel as it is now, I used to go everywhere on the train – and I still do. I also used to have a bet here and there too! There was one time I didn’t have enough money to get to the Guineas, it was Zafonic’s year. I backed a winner at Ascot on the Wednesday and that got me enough money to go to Newmarket; that was how I lived for a while!

How did you advance your technique if you didn’t go to college?

Trial and error really. I had a very basic camera and two lenses. I had a 135mm and a 50mm, eventually I got a 70-200mm which felt massive at the time and gradually I just added to it. One of my favourite sayings is the very worst photographers are the ones with qualifications! [he laughs] ... I stand by that.

Whose photographs inspired you?

I greatly admired the work of Ed Byrne and

Alan Johnson, they were the two very best racing photographers of that era in the late 1980s-early 1990s. I used to cut all their pictures out from magazines. I once got talking to them out in the country at Cheltenham and they gave me a lot of advice and encouragement, in the right way. They always impressed on me how important it was to value your work properly, not giving it away cheaply just to get your name out.

You said your first picture usage was by the Sporting Life, have you ever been contracted to a newspaper?

I’ve never been attached to a specific paper, I’ve always been a freelance photographer. I had a good start selling to owners and trainers and it was very well received, because a lot of the track photographers were very set in their ways about how they would shoot, and I wasn’t. Owners would say “I’ve never had pictures like this before’” just because the photos weren’t

necessarily taken on the finish line. At one stage my work was 50-50 owners and trainers to press; Raceform used a lot of my pictures, so they were my main outlets in the early years. I lost quite a lot of my press work when Raceform became part of the Racing Post so much of my work became then, for a long time, became nearly all sales to owners and trainers. It has swayed back the other way and I’m about 95per cent press or editorial and a tiny per cent owners and trainers.

You said your pictures were different from the track photographers at the time, in what way?

I just wanted get good pictures so I liked going out to the third last or a furlong down the track. The winning line can often be the worst picture, just as the last fence can be the worst picture – you just have to weigh each race up. I can’t bear the thought of doing every race the same just to ensure I have the winner in the shot.

steve cargill that, or it can be a close finish and they don’t know if they’ve won. You do still need that bit of luck.

Press accreditation is a lot stricter these days, so someone starting out couldn’t follow the same route as you did, what advice would you give now?

So I try to do races differently through each day, with different lenses and different angles, which isn’t always easy at every track. You do risk missing the odd winner – but you can also miss a winner (as I did at Ascot the other day), even if you are stood on the line. I do some work direct for Ascot racecourse and for a few of the other tracks; I won’t just stand on the line, and they’ve never asked me to. I just try and get a good range of pictures according to what the race is.

Having started with a Praktica camera, what do you use now?

I use a Canon and a variety of lenses. I prefer prime lenses to zoom lenses. So I have a 135mm, an 85mm, a 300mm, a 200mm, a wide angle and a 50mm and I use most of them in any given day. I don’t favour one in particular. For instance, I haven’t decided what I will use this afternoon [for the Arc meeting] and I’m only just looking at the track for the first time now. The last time I was here was when Montjeu won the Prix du Jockey-Club. It’s a bit of a mess here [referring to the marquees on the infield], there aren’t many gaps further down unless you go three-quarters of a furlong out and I’m not prepared to do that on Arc day. Really, you’re going to be hoping for a celebration from the jockey. Sometimes you can be well after the line and get the best shots because the celebration can be continuing; sometimes the jockey isn’t one of those that do

Not many professionals are going to tell you how to do it, because they don’t want you to nick their job! I gave some work to a young photographer, Francesca Altoft who initially had been putting her work on social media; she’d been in touch with racecourse photographer Gavin James at Cheltenham; he gave her some work experience and she helped him at a tracks as well as worked with me at Ascot. Because people recognise that she wants to go about it the right way and because she “gets it”, we’re all giving her work. But with some young people, you try to advise them and they don’t understand – their egos are too big just because they’ve got 4000 followers on twitter! Having your pictures published is exciting. When Francesca was working with me at Ascot, I’d get excited for her when one of her pictures was used – and I’d also know that she was getting paid! She has now been made a track photographer at Newbury, what a great boost for her. It’s a lot more difficult now because even local papers aren’t really employing photographers anymore, they tend to use reader-generated content. A lot of the photos are phone pictures or they are taken by their journalists on their ipads, so photographers can’t get work to learn the job. People are fiercely protective of their work because it’s diminishing. Mine isn’t... I’m ok. In fact, my last couple of years have been the best I’ve ever had. It’s not a dying occupation, you’ve just got to work it out and maintain the quality. When I started, I stood three fences out, in the country. I wouldn’t hide, but I wouldn’t get in the way of the pros. These guys who have sprung up, who think they’re photographers, they all want to be at the last, or they want to be at the finish line. They want to be taking the same pictures as us, but they haven’t gone through the real process and on top of that they’ve all got ‘proper’ jobs. They have no intention whatsoever of packing that job in; they ride the wave on the

steve cargill weekend, but on Monday they are back in the office. Cheltenham is a classic example. If you go to the second last fence, there will be no photographers at it, they’ll all be at the last, all taking the same pictures – it drives me nuts [he laughs]. If you’ve got the accreditation, you can go to which ever fence you like.

Do you think being a bit taller is quite helpful?!

Yes, although sometimes I like to be low as it helps to take out a bad piece of background. Bad backgrounds can make or break pictures. You look at twitter on any given day and there are reams of pictures saying such and such a horse looking great, yet the picture with the comment will be absolutely awful. And, sadly, it will be re-tweeted by professional organisations because they can’t wait a few minutes to get a proper image.

Do you feel the immediacy of social media has affected the way that you work?

Definitely. It’s frantic now. You shoot a race and you’d like to go back to the winners’ enclosure and do a couple of head shots, but maybe the next race is a Grade 2 and you want to do the field going to the start, or maybe the press room is quite a way from the track – you’ve only got so much time before the next race. Sometimes you do less than you should, because you’re aware that you need to send out the ones you’ve got. Having said that, there’s more work available, because more people are using more pictures sooner and then refreshing those with new ones later, online. It’s not all about the papers anymore, not by a long way.

Do you see a point where digital takes greater precedence? Well, it almost has.

What is the strongest medium to have you images seen in?

Online. The papers still use pictures and I check them every day. The papers first, everyone likes to get their pictures in the paper. It still counts for more and thankfully a lot of our papers still use racing pictures, The Sun and The Star, The Telegraph, The Guardian – particularly online, and in the paper at weekends – The Times not so much nowadays, but it does ebb and flow.

Mondialiste preparing for the Arlington Million with Decorated Knight behind at Arlington Park

They’re all out there and we’re all shooting for the same spots, as it were. I work for an agency, racingfotos.com and they have a fantastic list of clients, with a lot of reach in the industry. They have a lot of bloodstock clients and we do well with that.

Do you stick to the races?

I do go to Tattersalls sometimes, I’ve also been lucky to pick up a few stallion jobs recently which have come about by people seeing my pictures. You go and see a stallion and you can do a few fancy shots as well as the usual conformation shots. It’s nice to do something a bit different.

What are your thoughts on image manipulation?

It’s phenomenal, the amount of technology available and it’s amazing what you can do. The technology allows you to make it look like you did a better job than you actually did in the original! That’s part of it now. I like to think I’m good at editing my pictures. We all take rubbish, but I think presenting them nicely is a massive part of it. Some people just don’t have time to edit them properly. We’re not talking about massive software usage, just a neater crop or a nicer colour balance and straightening them up. In my photos, I will make Chantilly look downhill today, I absolutely guarantee it! But

it’s the easiest thing to sort out. Nearly every picture of mine I’m editing will be straightened. I didn’t use to, when I was on film, it’s only since I’ve switched to digital.

You’ve been in syndicates, owned and trained point-to-pointers and you rode in a charity race at Ascot...

Ascot was brilliant, and I so wanted to make sure that I got a good picture of me! I got to post safely – it’s long way to that mile start! We finished sixth of 12 – we would never have won. After I was just a little disappointed; I felt that I could have done it better, or if I’d made different decisions at one to two points, I could’ve been closer at the finish.

Has being so involved made you a better photographer?

Definitely, yes, though it’s not essential. You can predict things easier, you see horses from race to race, you know how they’re going to run.

Tell me about the Horserace Writers and Photographers Association...

Its’ aims are to represent its’ members at racecourses, so that they’ve got the right working facilities and to liaise with the racecourses over all the rules and regulations – especially with the photographers. But ensuring that there is plenty of good cake and strong wi-fi signals – they -are probably the most important things to keep journalists happy! We also run the annual Derby Awards Lunch, which includes awards for the best broadcaster, journalist and photographer and takes place early December. Neither the lunch, nor or the members’ Golf Day are run for a profit, we always give any surplus to various charities.

Your work isn’t all about the Group or Grade 1 winners, what keeps you going? I do it because I like horses and I like racing, not because I love photography. I’m not a geek, I don’t know what the latest camera is. I haven’t got a clue what camera to recommend. Just get one, they’re all good now anyway. It doesn’t have to be a big day’s racing for me to go to the races, whereas some of the other photographers only go to the Grade1 days. I’m happy to do it all, be it at Chelmsford or Lingfield for the regular day’s racing. It’s better than working!

mare of the month

Mare of the month

The 2015 foal out of Aleagueoftheirown at Tattersalls this October. She became one of four lots (three by Dubawi) to sell for over two million guineas

G

iven the extraordinary results achieved by Galileo over the last decade, it would be little wonder if mating plans got somewhat repetitive at Coolmore – after all, why mess with a winning formula that has delivered in spades?

100

www.internationalthoroughbred.net

If ever reassurance that hitting repeat was required – and it surely has not been needed for many years! – it was provided during the course of five days in early October when the mare Aleagueoftheirown enjoyed outstanding results both on the racecourse and in the sale ring. Aleagueoftheirown has been in a

monogamous relationship with Galileo since her first covering in 2009, visiting the perennial champion seven times in succession. To date she has produced four winners from as many runners, three of them black type scorers, headed by the triple Group 1 heroine Alice Springs, who in October added the Sun Chariot (G1) to her


mare of the month

Aleagueoftheirown Danehill Damcer-Golden Coral (Slew O’Gold)

victories in the Falmouth Stakes (G1) and Matron Stakes (G1). Just five days later, Aleagueoftheirown’s fifth Galileo offspring arrived in the ring at Tattersalls, and the full-sister to Alice Springs did not disappoint, eventually hammered down to the partnership of MV Magnier, Mayfair Speculators and Peter and Ross Doyle for 2,100,000gns. Aleagueoftheirown is clearly a talented producer who nicks incredibly well with Galileo, but her own racing career was something of a frustration.

Optimistic Lass was foaled in Kentucky, out of a mare born in Nebraska – hardly a state that often troubles the bigger leagues in US From the off, she was obviously well-regarded by trainer David Wachman who pitched her straight into Group 2 company at two for her first start. She acquitted herself well, beaten only half a length in a blanket finish to be fourth of five on her sole juvenile outing. She broke her maiden by a short head on debut at three, but thereafter struggled to live up to that early promise. Well beaten on five further runs at three and four, including twice in Group 3 company, she achieved black-type at four when beaten a short head by the Queen Mary (G2) winner Elletelle in a Listed contest at The Curragh, but could not add to it in four more runs at four and five. Her record of one win from 12 starts was unremarkable, but clearly she was thought of highly enough to warrant a visit to the champion Galileo. As a daughter of Galileo out of a Danehill Dancer mare, Alice Springs is a product of the Coolmore-Ballydoyle axis. In an interesting

quirk however, her immediate ancestry owes much to the rival powerhouse of Sheikh Mohammed’s global operation. Alice Springs’s third dam is the Mr Prospector mare Optimistic Lass, who landed the 1984 Nassau Stakes and Musidora Stakes in the maroon and white colours of Sheikh Mohammed. Optimistic Lass was foaled in Kentucky, out of a mare born in Nebraska – hardly a state that often troubles the bigger leagues in US breeding and racing. However, Loveliest shrugged off that rather unlikely start in life to become a useful middle-distance performer in France, placing in the Prix Penelope (G3) as well as winning in her native America. Loveliest hailed from a smart family, being a half-sister to Arbees Boy, winner of 1974

No return to Galileo (IRE)

Metropolitan Handicap (G1), and descending from the family of the 1927 Epsom Derby winner Call Boy. Her daughter Optimistic Lass was bred by Warner L Jones Jnr, the leading breeder who achieved success as producer of such luminaries as the 1953 Kentucky Derby winner Dark Star, the only horse to ever inflict defeat on the mighty Native Dancer; Kentucky Oaks (G1) heroine Nancy Jr; Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1) victor Is It True, and Seattle Dancer, who was the subject of a world record when purchased for $13.1m as a yearling in 1985 at the Keeneland July sale. That record was set three years after Optimistic Lass was purchased by the Maktoum family, buying under the name of their Aston Upthorpe Stud. The price tag for the daughter of Mr. Prospector was $700,000, more than double the sale average of $344,183, and over three times the median of $210,000. She was part of a 19-strong buying spree by the Maktoums that averaged $669,736 at Keeneland’s Select July Yearling sale in 1982, headed by the $2.2m paid for an Alydar colt and $1.4m for a Northern Dancer filly. Neither of those expensive horses would live up to their purchase prices, unlike Optimistic Lass. She set about repaying her new owner as a two-year-old, quickening in style to easily win a 23-runner maiden over at 6f at Newmarket for Michael Stoute, her only start that season. As a daughter of Mr. Prospector out of a smart middle-distance performer, the Classic route was an inevitable choice for Optimistic Lass.

S

he debuted at three in the Musidora Stakes (G3) at York, winning in style by a length and a half. It was a taking performance, particularly as her saddle slipped slightly during the race, so it was little surprise that she was sent off favourite for the Epsom Classic. However, Optimistic Lass could not deliver, fading to finish fifth, although the records show her as fourth, following the disqualification of Out Of Shot who had

www.internationalthoroughbred.net 101


mare of the month stopped her in her run. The filly readily made amends at Goodwood when returned to a 1m2f in the Nassau Stakes, then a Group 2, finishing strongly to beat Desirable by two and a half lengths. Pitched in at the deep end shortly after in the Benson and Hedges Gold Cup (G1) back at York, she finished out of the money, but rounded off her season with third place in the Sun Chariot Stakes (G1) when conceding 7lb to the winner. Upon her eventual retirement to Sheikh Mohammed’s burgeoning paddocks, Optimistic Lass was covered first in the US by the first-season sire and champion racehorse Slew O’Gold. The resulting filly was named Golden Opinion sent to André Fabre. Unraced at two, Golden Opinion graced the racecourse just six times as a three-year-old, but proved herself a top-class performer, triumphing in the Coronation Stakes (G1) at Royal Ascot, having been third in the Poule d’Essai des Pouliches on only her second start, and going down by only a head to Cadeaux Genereux in the July Cup (G1) with Danehill in third. Sadly, a tendon injury forced her retirement after a 6l rout in the Prix du Rond Pont (G3).

F

ollowing Golden Opinion, Optimistic Lass produced only a couple of minor winners for her owner – although her daughter Joyful (Green Desert) would become the third dam of the Irish 1,000 Guineas (G1) heroine Samitar – and it was perhaps little surprise that she was culled from the Darley broodmare band. Offered in-foal to Wolfhound at Keeneland’s November Sale in 1995, she was purchased by Paul Nataf as agent for $250,000. A year later, she was back at the same venue, in-foal for the second time to Slew O’Gold. Even the lure of a repeat mating of the cross that produce a Group 1 filly was not enough to tempt buyers in the ring as she failed to meet her reserve and was led out at $135,000. Clearly a shrewd deal was struck however, as Golden Coral, the filly carried by Optimistic Lass at the time, was registered under the breeding name of Orpendale and Barrownstown Stud. Unraced at two and unplaced in her first two starts at three, the filly must have revealed her talent at home to Aiden O’Brien

A pedigree not devoid of talent, but the brilliant filly Alice Springs has moved it forward again

as he was willing to try to capture some black-type with her in the Listed Garnet Stakes. She could finish only twelfth, but was afforded her place at stud, where she produced maiden winners Euphrates

(Danehill) and Apollo (Galileo), as well as Aleagueoftheirown. Aleagueoftheirown produced a May colt this season and unsurprisingly returned to Galileo. Surely it will take little consideration to see her back in his court in 2017.

photos of the month: preparations Down Under THE EVIL EYE: Irish St Leger winner Wicklow Brave is not too impressed at being washed down after track work at Geelong racecourse, Melbourne. The son of Beat Hollow had just finished his first piece of serious work since arriving in the southern hemisphere for his Melbourne Cup challenge. Local press reported that the horse worked powerfully over 2400 metres under former NH jockey and Willie Mullins main man David Casey who described the work out as “strong”. Below, left, Charlie Appleby’s assistant trainer James Ferguson and Kerrin McEvoy (right) enjoy holding the Geelong Cup trophy aloft after winning the race with Qewy. The race put the son of Street Cry on course for the Melbourne Cup. Below, right, Winx is watched by some young admirers and is recorded in action from all angles when ridden by Hugh Bowman during track work at “The Valley” in preparation for the her win in the Cox Plate **breaking news as we go to press**.
