There is far more...
...to the whip debate than just the concerns of jockeys and equine welfare, writes Sally Duckett
he use of the whip in British horseracing has been such an overworked subject in the last three weeks, but the issue has such important consequences for our industry and there is still such confused thinking about the subject. Unless you are reading our pdf version, which will be online a few days after going to press, by the time this issue is available in print, the rules may well have changed again, given the recent history of this matter. The BHA’s management of the issue has been conspicuous by its absence, while the PJA has been somewhat duplicitous and lacking leadership. The organisation apparently agreeed to the changes in the summer, then coming out fighting once the rules were brought in and the jockeys found them unworkable, arguing that they had not been consulted and that the penalties were too steep. We then reached a point when Kevin Darley of the PJA said on the Morning Line that it was happy with the “number of hits” ruling, but was unhappy with the penalty measures; a position that it reversed a day later after Ruby Walsh recieved a five-day ban for giving one an extra smack at Aintree (despite the ride being applauded by most), a ban which raised the possibilities of a last-race boycott at Aintree. Unfortunately, despite the BHA’s 10-month expensive review into the use of the whip, there are still so many questions yet to be resolved. What actually is the public perception regarding the use of the whip? Do racegoers and nonracegoers alike watch the sport and struggle to sleep at night if they have seen a horse whipped in a race? Is racing creating a problem of its own devising? Is it listening too much to groups such as World Horse Welfare, who seem to be gaining an ever-increasing voice on such matters, and is seemingly terrified of losing RSPCA support, rather than run the sport for itself? Why are the Grand National tickets selling so fast if the public is abhorrent to racing as it is? Where is the scientific research into a horse’s reaction to being whipped – particularly with the use of the “softer” sticks? Why hasn’t a fully funded project been established to measure the levels of adrenaline / pain responses that a horse experiences in a race? It is all very well jockey William Buick lightly smacking someone’s hand on TV and saying that it is the sound that makes the difference, but what does a horse – with his thicker skin and hair – feel? Would it respond in a similar manner if it just
Will it just mean that jockeys ride within the rules in order not to be given an enforced holiday, but stop acting like sportsmen?
heard the sound of something waving in the air? And does that change from one race to the next? What is being done to educate the wider world to ensure that the sport is understood? Roly Owers of World Horse Welfare said on the Morning Line that there is a “huge public misunderstanding” of the sport – what is being done to counteract that? Why are those with zero tolerance to whip use not being told that sometimes communication with a horse can only be achieved with a smack? Owers also stated on TV that the past rules created 900 whip offences (a mere one per cent of rides) last year – it appears that this has been the catalyst for change. So perhaps herein lies the problem, that just possibly the former rule – and the probably more or less the correct rule – created the issue itself by just being there. The number system has been created because it is less subjective, is easier for stewards to work with – and to appease the RSPCA and World Horse Welfare – and I guess the BHA thought it would be easier for jockeys to work within its parameters than before. At least every jockey and every steward knows where he is – there are no fuzzy lines anymore. But will this mean that the best of every horse (after all what the sport is supposed to be about) is produced in a race? If the offences do decline, will it just mean that jockeys ride within the rules in order not to be given an enforced holiday, but stop acting like sportsmen? And what will happen if there isn’t a drop in whip offences? Will the rules be tightened further and changed again, just to reduce the whip offences for reasons of public perception rather than to do best by the sport and so, by extension, the horses? So are seven and eight hits the right amount? That will only be revealed as time progresses, but racing will undoubtedly alter. There is so much more to this issue than merely equine welfare – is the BHA prepared to monitor, assess those horses that win, place and also ran, would those same
horses have won or lost under the old regime? It must speak to trainers, jockeys, owners and punters as to how they believe the results are panning out, what chances does each and every horse get, are more horses retired out of racing earlier and what implications that might have, how are the new races perceived – if at all differently, are races changing for the better or worse, is it easier for those who are perhaps not going to do their best to ensure they do just that? Will the early pace be taken out of racing – if so, will that give more horses more chances? Will it pander to the worse horses or the best? Will just those horses with the best jockeys riding get to win races? Will jockey strength become even more important – or irrelevant? Will it be a case of the survival of the fittest 0r will tactics become vital? Or will jockeys being merely trying to remember the smacks give in a 3m5f chase than operating to the height of their skill? Will owners start leaving the sport? Will the top Irish-based jockeys carry out their threat to stop riding in this country, believing that they can no longer ride to the best of their ability? Will more jump horses start falling as jockeys are unable to keep their horses travelling effectively for them – could this have dangerous consequences? Will this lead to early challenges regarding the continuation of NH racing? Is the only answer to ban the whip altogether, apart from corrective use? And what would tbe allowed? Giving a lazy jumper a quick backhander after a sloppy jump? And where does this leave our British horseracing, and our horses, in the international, multimillion pound world of horseracing? Will our horse population improve for this change, those horses who try their hardest becoming the race winners, rather than those who are ridden by those who just use their whips the strongest? Will British racing become that world leader that the BHA dream about, or just a laughing stock? The use of the whip has far more implications than just horse welfare and upset jockeys.

the first word
... a season of Frankel and whips, bound together by the BHA, writes Paul Haigh
And Frankel is unquestionably the best racehorse of any sort anywhere. Whisper it, so we won’t put a jinx on him, but there’s just a chance he’s the best there’s ever been
wait for the Glorious Twelfth of anything to catch a glimpse of the latest set of initials to elect themselves British racing’s rulers trying to blow their corns off with double-barrelled Marklins. The latest wheeze though was a beauty even by the high standards set over the last few decades. Some slack-jawed simpleton at BHA HQ at some time came up with the following suggestion: “You know this big meeting we’re having at Ascot? The one we’ve got the Qataris to sponsor so it actually looks as though we’ve got some prize-money like all the other countries where bookmaking is a criminal offence? The one that’s going to put racing back on the news bulletins and back at the top of the back pages? The one that’s going to provide a grand finale to the season’s ‘narrative’? “Well, let’s introduce a really daft new whip rule just before it, so that then we can distract attention from the actual races and make it look as though we are accepting the critics’ own interpretation of racing as a cruel sport for insensitive louts who don’t give a damn about the welfare of the poor ickul horsies.” And then a majority of his colleagues must have shouted: “I say, that’s a jolly good idea!” It almost defies belief. But it must have happened. The result as we now know was that the attention which should have belonged to Cirrus Des Aigles as the worthy winner of the Champion Stakes and to the whole otherwise successful concept of British Champions Day in general was deflected instead onto the stewards’ decision to, in effect, fine his rider, Christophe Soumillon, around £50,000. This guaranteed that media space would be devoted to the same daft rule instead of to the celebration of British racing the Qataris had paid for, and it humiliated the BHA although
h Autumn. Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness. Season too of major race meetings designed to tell us who the real champs are. Perhaps unusually however, we’ve known the identity of at least two of them for quite some time now. Black Caviar is unquestionably the best sprinter in the world, even if she isn’t allowed to leave Australia to prove it. And Frankel is unquestionably the best racehorse of any sort anywhere. Whisper it, so we won’t put a jinx on him, but there’s just a chance he’s the best there’s ever been. Timeform doesn’t think so. Timeform thinks there have been three who may be considered his superiors even in the mere 60-odd years they’ve been trying to evaluate form. Their names are Sea Bird, Brigadier Gerard and Tudor Minstrel. Not bad horses in their day, but which one would you make favourite to beat the colt named in honour of the late, great American trainer, sometimes referred to disrespectfully in US press rooms as “Dr Frankelstein”? Maybe Brigadier Gerard, who most have always assumed to be the greatest miler ever. But would even the Brigadier have been able to cope with Frankel’s mid-race speed? After Frankel had humiliated the only two contemporary pretenders to his crown in the Qipco Queen Elizabeth II Stakes on the inaugural British Champions Day at Ascot, an almost incredulous reporter asked Tom Queally, who must feel rather like that couple who won the equivalent of the Greek national debt on Euromillions, whether it was really possible that, as his trainer had suggested, this horse might be even better next year. Tom gave one of those deliberately sly grins that Irish horsemen like to dispense when speaking to you very, very confidentially indeed, and said: “He might too.” In that case, get ready to step aside Brigadier, Minstrel and Sea Bird. Get on down there with Dancing Brave, Sea The Stars and the other alltime greats already rated beneath him. Autumn is also, of course, the season for British racing to shoot itself in the foot. Well, any season is actually. Nobody has to
its members were probably too stupid to realise it had done so. Soumillon did though. “I am embarrassed for British racing” he said. His other remark was: “Now I won’t be able to pay my dentist.” Fortunately for the most famous Belgian since Plastique Bertrand, his economic situation was rectified the very next day when he rode Sarah Lynx to a 4l victory in the Pattison Canadian International at Woodbine, and his weeping dentist dried his eyes at once. Soumillon was intendings to appeal, but the BHA, under pressure from jockeys, reviewed the daft rule. With another Daft Rule Committee no doubt. But even with the tinkering the problem will persist for as long as the rule does. Is it really believed that those who detest racing because they imagine it’s cruel will begin to love it if the use of the whip is curtailed or even banned? Do those who rightly hate cruelty really believe they are witnessing it when one of the most pampered creatures on earth gets smacked six times instead of five with an instrument deliberately designed not to inflict on him any pain or damage? If people want to be indignant about cruelty they should look in the prisons of Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan or the places where Britain and the US have “renditioned” its assumed enemies. We call ourselves Homo Sapiens. If only our moral sense matched our cleverness at creating gadgets. Meanwhile applause is due to jockey Richard Hughes, who has handed in his licence in protest at the rules. Maybe he’s rich enough for the gesture not to cause much pain to himself or his family, but it takes a bit of guts to stand up against a crowd – particularly a smug one. Ah autumn. Season of missed opportunities and hollow self-righteousness.
Genetics of performance
At last month’s genetics symposium in Lexington, Professor Matthew Binns outlined some of the recent research that he has been undertaking
Is genetics important to the horse industry?” asked Professor Matthew Binns at the 2011 Thoroughbred Pedigree, Genetics, and Performance Symposium, held at the beginning of September in Lexington, Kentucky. “A major determinant of sale prices is the pedigree. And pedigree can be thought of as a surrogate for genetics,” he explained while outlining that the stud book has created a “playground” for geneticists.
While the inbreeding coefficient for thoroughbreds, on average, is somewhere around eight per cent, some individuals could have higher or lower coefficients. Binns explained that each horse has 64 chromosomes, half from the sire and half from the dam. “Zenyatta for instance ‘on average’ would have gotten about four of her 64 chromosomes (or about six per cent of her DNA) from Nashua, to whom she is inbred 5x5,” he said. “She may have got more, she may have got less, she may even have got nothing. The chances of her getting the same chromosomal region down both sides, and thus recreating Nashua’s genotype in that region are very small.” There are some shared genetics between siblings, Binns explained. Two half siblings, for example, will share about 25 per cent of their DNA. Likewise, broodmares by the same sire will pass about 12.5 per cent of the sire’s genetics on to their offspring.
“Proof of Principle”
Binns noted that some traits – such as coat colour – can be evaluated using simple Mendelian genetics (i.e. the punnett square as used in school) as bay colour is dominant while chestnut is recessive. Other traits, such as athletic performance, are more difficult to analyse and are, thus, called “complex traits”. Binns described a study that examined the incidence of white leg markings in thoroughbred horses, which is a “well-defined complex trait,” and in the complex category with athletic performance. White markings in horses, he relayed, result from an absence of melanocytes (pigment-producing cells) “Asymmetry in markings is common, though limbs have identical genotypes and similar intrauterine environments,” explained Binns. “The strong correlation between white facial markings and white legs suggest some of the same genes are involved in both traits.” Interestingly, Binns noted that gender also seems to play a role in the development of white markings as males are observed to have more markings than do females; white markings are found more frequently and are more extensive on front legs than on the back legs; and more markings are seen on the left side of the body than the right. Through his study, Binns was able to target four loci (the specific location of a gene or DNA sequence on a chromosome) on three chromosomes that seemed to play a role in the
Professor Matthew Binns grouped horses into four performance catagories
presence or absence of white markings in thoroughbreds: one gene on ECA2 (ECA = “equine chromosome”), two genes on ECA3 and one gene on ECA16. Binns identified one loci on ECA3 and the loci on ECA16 as good candidate genes, both of which were later validated by a further group of reseachers.
Genetics of performance
Binns went on to outline his studies examining the complex trait of equine genetics relating to performance. “Race performance is like a rubik’s cube,” he explained. “Scientific studies have estimated the heritability of racing performance in the thoroughbred and concluded that genetics contributes 35-50 per cent of performance.” In one study information from approximately 4,500 DNA samples was reviewed. About 1,150 horses had undergone full genome scans – more than 200 of the samples were taken from Grade 1 race winners, 18 of the samples came from individuals who won US Triple Crown races, and many samples were from top thoroughbred stallions. Binns paired the DNA samples with further information collected about each submission, including
the individual’s racing history, the distance at which they raced most successfully, the surface on which the animals were most successful running and the horse’s height. Binns identified a panel of SNP markers (single nucleotide polymorphisms, the smallest and most common type of genetic variant) associated with racing ability, established whether the SNPs were dominant or recessive traits, developed a scoring system giving “Genetic Grades A, B, C and D” (i.e. ranked the horses’ genetic potential), and established incidence of “Genetic Grades in Sales Population.” Binns grouped the horses into four categories – A, B, C, and D (A being the most potential and D being the least) – which rated their genetic potential as athletes. Binns found that: 1. The SNPs that were associated with the horses’ ideal race distance were located on ECA18 – the same chromosome linked with double muscle disorders in other species. 2. About half of the Kentucky Derby winners evaluated showed the same general genotypes. 3. Overall, about 10 per cent of the horses tested were grouped in the A category, 40 per cent were rated B, 40 per cent were C-rated, and 10 per cent were classified D.

Dream Ahead to stud at a fee of €17,500 Ballylinch Stud is to stand the five-time Group 1 winner Dream Ahead at a fee of €17,500 (£15,000). His book will be limited to 130 mares. Emirates Park Stud, Australia has also purchased a 50 per cent share in the stallion. It means that the stud is the major shareholder in five-time Group 1 winner, he will stand at the farm when shuttling to the southern hemisphere. Dream Ahead, trained by David Simock, has won the five Group 1 races: the Prix Morny, the Middle Park Stakes, the July Cup, the Haydock Sprint Cup and the Prix de la Forêt. The Emirates deal was finalised after Dream Ahead beat Goldikova in the Prix de la Forêt, the horse’s first top level win over 7f. The deal to stand the horse at Ballylinch next spring was secured just ahead of the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe weekend and although a run in the US in the Breeders’ Cup was mooted, it has since been dismissed by new connections. John O’Connor, managing director of Ballylinch Stud said: “Dream Ahead was bought with a stud career in mind and we were keen to proceed with that plan. “His defeat of Goldikova in the Prix De La Forêt was a lovely note to end on – he has done everything that could have been asked of him and there was no need to race again. “He retires to stud 100 per cent sound and he is still in fact cantering away. David will let him down now and the horse will travel to Ireland when he is ready. “We are delighted to acquire Dream Ahead for Ballylinch, he is the outstanding sprinter of recent years and his thrilling defeat of Goldikova in the Prix de la Forêt over 7f means he could sire top milers, as well as top two-year-olds and sprinters like himself.” “We have priced him at a fee which we hope will give everyone a

chance, while also limiting his book size.” David Simcock, trainer of Dream Ahead said: “He’s been a star right from day one and has been a joy to train. He is the soundest and most straightforward horse you could wish to find and I will be lucky if I can find another horse like him. “His performance in the Middle Park was outstanding, when he beat good horses like Strong Suit and Approve by an easy 9l. He’s a greatlooking horse with a fantastic temperament combined with exceptional ability and I am sure he will be very successful at stud. I wish his new owners the very best of luck with him.” “He’s a magnificent individual standing 16.2 hands with an incredibly relaxed manner,” confirmed Trevor Lobb, CEO of Emirates Park. “I think anyone who saw the preliminaries for the Prix de la Forêt would have noted what a wonderful temperament he possesses and now I have seen it first-hand. “I’ve been looking for the most suitable new stallion to secure for Australia since joining Emirates Park and Dream Ahead is just that horse,” continued Lobb. “It’s been confirmed in the past few days that Timeform rated the performance 133lb. That compares more than favourably with any sprinter ever to stand in Australia.”
Darley’s Australian champion sire Lonhro to shuttle to America Australia’s reigning champion sire, Lonhro, is to shuttle to Darley’s stallion farm at Jonabell in Lexington, Kentucky for the 2012 breeding season. John Ferguson, Sheikh Mohammed’s bloodstock advisor said: “Lonhro is a rare thoroughbred – a horse of the year on the racetrack and then a champion sire. He is among the most talented horses to have graced the Australian turf in living memory and will bring
to America the soundness and toughness for which Australian horses are known. As a stallion, his rise has been meteoric.” Lonhro was a Group-winning juvenile, a Group 1 winner at three and went on to continued success as an older horse. In total he won 11 Group 1 races over 7f to 1m2f. He became Australia’s champion sire for the first time this year with only four crops to race, in the process defeating international sires Galileo and
Redoute’s Choice, and fellow Darley stallions Street Cry and Elusive Quality. He has already sired Group 1 winners Beaded and Benfica, as well as Denman, who now also stands alongside his sire at Darley in Australia. Lonhro joined the Darley team of stallions when Shiekh Mohammed purchased the Woodlands Stud racing and breeding empire for a reported $500 million. It is believed that this was the biggest purchase of its kind within racing.
Lonhro was transferred to Darley’s Aberdeen base, where he now stands for a fee of $88,000. Ferguson added: “Lonhro is coming in at the top of his game. He’s young. He’s fresh. He’s already proved he’s a stallion of influence. He stamps his stock. And he’s a great looking horse. Lonhro has totally rewarded our faith in the southern hemisphere and we believe he will be perfect for mares in the northern hemisphere and a real asset to breeders.”
New Group 3 race over 2m added to Dubai World Cup
he Dubai World Cup has added a 2m turf race to the 2012 World Cup card, increasing the total purse for the world’s richest day’s racing to $27.25 million.
Formerly known as the DRC Gold Cup, the race was won last year by Godolphin’s Whispering Gallery from the Gary Mooretrained Bergo. The race has now gained Group 3 status and will be worth $1million. Its addition increases the number of races on the World Cup card on March 31, 2012, to nine. The card is the culmination of a Dubai World Cup Carnival season that consists of 16 fixtures. “As the popularity of the Dubai World Cup and racing at Meydan grows, we must keep in step to encourage and foster the development of the sport,” said Saeed Humaid Al Tayer,
chairman of the board and CEO of Meydan. “Meydan has developed as a centrepiece of the international racing calendar and the further growth of the Dubai World Cup and Dubai World Cup Carnival will ensure that Dubai serves as a winter destination for some the biggest names in racing. We are pleased with our past accomplishments, but we also look to the future for even greater experiences in racing for Meydan, the Dubai World Cup, and the UAE.” The Al Quoz Sprint will gain Group 1 status in 2012. The race was added to the card in 2010, the first year of racing at Meydan.
Bloodstock agent William Huntingdon takes a look at the varied world of racing and bloodstock
“I have to admit I was one of the doubters”
Geoff Stickels has mastered the complex art and science of dealing with very different soils and watering requirements on the various parts of the course, which looked magnificent. The equine stars made the day and the crowd that thronged the paddock and winning enclosure matched Cheltenham at the festival Meeting. Frankel was the ultimate draw, combining athletic brilliance, a charismatic and legendary trainer, and one of British racing’s greatest owner-breeders. By the champion Galileo and named after Prince Khalid’s enormously successful, and recently deceased, Californian trainer, it was very moving to see the Juddmonte team decorously accept the congratulations of the Coolmore team as they passed each other in the Champion’s tunnel from the paddock to the saddling boxes. The initiative of getting great prize-money and removing Group penalties from the Group 2 and 3 races meant Fame And Glory and Society Rock participated. Great front-running rides from Jamie Spencer and Johnny Murtagh saw the Gold Cup winner triumph in
Clearly the new rules must have been invented by people who have never ridden, let alone in a race
espite the mounting cumulonimbus threatening British racing, a wonderful silver lining was unveiled in Qipco Champions Day at Ascot in mid October. I admit I was one of the doubters as it’s timing, sandwiched between the Arc and Breeders’ Cup meetings, was hardly ideal. Secondly, and more importantly, October weather could have been pretty unfriendly to an outdoor sport. As it was, 38 Group winners from 56 runners turned out to contest the five Group races. The weather gods must have been smiling as they turned on a day that would have been fabulous in June. The crowd of nearly 27,000 was double that at Newmarket the previous year. Access to Ascot from London is easy by train and the stand is built for maximising corporate and private hospitality. In a quiet, unassuming way, Charles Barnett and his team, have done an excellent job both with the catering and commemorating Ascot legends throughout the stand.
the Long Distance Cup and Dancing Rain add to her Epsom and German Oaks wins in a very fast time for the Fillies and Mares. Deacon Blues gave James Fanshawe another Group sprint winner at Ascot after Society Rock’s succcess in the Golden Jubilee Stakes in June. The climax of the day resulted in a thrilling victory of another cloud in the shape of Cirrus Des Aigles, who beat the ultra-tough and consistent Kiwi-bred So You Think. The whip issue came to an undignified climax with the huge fine and ban imposed on Christophe Soumillon after his win in the Champion Stakes. Richard Hughes had already fallen foul of the new rule and chose to hand in his licence rather than be subject to the complicated new guidelines. The timing of the introduction was as bizarre as the new rules. The end of a busy season is hardly ideal and perhaps January 1 on the all-weather after jockeys, trainers, owners and stewards had been fully briefed might have worked better. Clearly the new rules must have been invented by people who have

never ridden, let alone in a race. Penalties were far too stringent for the extra slap Cirrus got in the final furlong and apparently no serious thought was given to the destination of the very large fine. Hopefully an appeal, in the light of the new guidelines, will result in the fine and ban being overturned. Perhaps requiring amateurs and apprentices to keep their hands on the reins and use a slap on the neck/ shoulder as being experimented at Towcester might be worth trying. I have always advocated including a spell with Riding for the Disabled for offenders to shorten their ban, this would benefit everyone. It would be a bit like my recently completed speed awareness course, but rather more worthwhile. Much of the success of such a wonderful climax to the Flat season must go down to Sheikh Fahad al Thani, his brother, Sheikh Hamad, and his main advisor, David Redvers. Not only has he created a great finale, but the 35 race series was well supported and marketed. Sheikh Fahad’s racing arm, Pearl Bloodstock, has also enjoyed a good year. They have gone into the market and bought made horses like Frederic Engels, Codemaster, Side Glance and Lightening Pearl as a yearling. They have over 26 horses shared amongst 16 trainers. Their cleverest
move has been to leave the horses with their existing trainers and, close on the heels of that decision, is their preparedness to sell the horses on to a market better suited to their potential. In Dunaden, Pearl has a live chance in the Melbourne Cup after his victory in the Geelong Cup, one of the best prep races for the big one. He is by Nicobar who was a miler trained at Kingsclere, but Nicobar is out of a Belmez daughter of Juliette Marny, so there should be no stamina doubts on the female side. La Marlia has Kaldounevees and Busted in her immediate pedigree, so Indian Ridge is the only speed influence. Bauer, a fast-finishing third to Dunaden, faces a battle to get in the race as he is fairly low on the merit list. However stricter vet checks well before the declaration time should see one or two drop outs. Apparently T.A.B. technology cannot yet deal with reserves. Perhaps a couple of wild cards should be introduced to include horses with good recent form: one foreign and one local to preserve good relations. I trust David Redvers is learning a good Banjo Patterson poem in the event of victory. It need not be as long as Dermot Weld’s admirable recitation of The Man from Snowy River.
Two stars retire to Ashford Cape Blanco the first son of Galileo to stand in US; Uncle Mo in $10m deal The US champion juvenile of 2010, Uncle Mo
oolmore’s Ashford Stud in Kentucky is to stand both Uncle Mo, the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile winner and champion US juvenile of 2010, and Cape Blanco, the winner of five Group / Grade 1 races. No decision has yet been made whether Uncle Mo will race on in 2012, but a partnership deal was reportedly agreed in July between owner Mike Repole of Repole Stable and Coolmore. According to the Paulick Report, the deal is believed to have valued Uncle Mo at approximately $10 million and has escalator clauses for victories in Grade 1 races. The horse’s nose defeat to Caleb’s Posse in the King’s Bishop Stakes (G1) in August may thus have cost Repole $1 million or more. The horse has since won at Grade 2 level en route to a run in the Breeders’ Cup Classic. “We’ll see what happens in the Classic and then Todd [Pletcher] and I will sit down with the Coolmore team and we’ll decide where to go from there,” said Repole. A winter favourite for the Kentucky Derby, Uncle Mo, a $220,000 yearling purchase, missed the entire Triple Crown due to illness. The son of Indian Charlie was returning after a near fivemonth layoff in the King’s Bishop Stakes, but was back to his best in the Kelso Handicap (G2) at Belmont Park in September. He has won more than $1.6 million and five of his seven racecourse starts to date. “Todd Pletcher said he’s never had a horse as good as Uncle Mo, so that’s good enough for me,” said Ashford Stud manager Dermot Ryan. “He’s also a magnificent-looking horse by a very good sire, so we’re really looking forward to having him when the time comes for him to retire,” he added. Cape Blanco will become first son of Galileo to stand in North America. “Galileo is without doubt the hottest sire in the world right now,” said Ryan. “We’ve wanted to stand one of his top sons for some time but we thought we should wait for the right one, and in Cape Blanco we’re confident we’ve got him.” Unbeaten as a two-year-old, Cape Blanco won the Irish Derby (G1) and Irish Champion Stakes (G1) as a three-year-old before success in the three Grade 1 races this season: the Man O’War Stakes, the Arlington Million and the Joe Hirsch Turf Classic International Stakes.
The business of horseracing
We report on the Leaders In Racing conference that discussed the global future of the sport
he business of horseracing, both domestically and internationally, came under the spotlight at the inaugural Leaders in Racing conference on October 6. Held at Chelsea Football Club, the conference attracted 200 senior leaders from the racing industry from over 20 countries and was staged alongside the alreadyestablished Leaders In Football conference. The conference had succeeded to a large degree even before the MP for horseracing and betting gave the opening address – given the international presence at the £900-a -head conference (although the majority of attendees appeared to be on the guest list). Speakers from the Hong Kong Jockey Club, Singapore Turf Club, Australia’s Tabcorp, South Africa’s Phumelela, and the US’s Philadelphia Park and Parx Casino were all on the programme to debate racing’s declining market share of global gambling and the
different business and betting models around the globe over four sessions. The sessions could easily have been condensed into two, with much of the same ground re-trodden, but the bottom line was that, while in some countries racing is booming as a business – Hong Kong turned over HK$80.4 billion (£6.5bn) last season –, the British racing product still invites enviable looks from the rest of the world. “British racing has a wonderful heritage and I admire the atmosphere whenever I visit a racecourse here,” said chief executive officer of The Hong Kong Jockey Club Winfried Engelbrecht-Bresges. Of course, as a business though, no country comes close to the HKJC and its governmentrun tote monopoly. Engelbrecht-Bresges shared the Club’s experience of adopting a more customer-centric strategy in its racing business development, noting that this had proved successful not only in halting Hong Kong’s spiralling downward trend
Winfried Engelbrecht-Bresges: finds it difficult in Britain to get horseracing information
in turnover, but in reviving it from HK$60 billion in 2005/06 to HK$80.4 billion last season. “From a racecourse perspective if I come to Britain as an owner or a spectator, there is not enough information for me – it’s very difficult for me to know what’s going on when
As a mature sport horseracing has some ailing body parts, and has to think about how it can rejuvenate itself, and in my opinion, this is primarily through customer-centricity
there are 30 horses running. You don’t know until the winning post which of the horses has won,” he continued. “You have to make the race itself interesting so people, especially the younger racegoers, can participate and this comes down to technology and what you can offer different customers.” He continued: “On a global scale, horseracing is in solid health, although I wouldn’t say good health. As a mature sport horseracing has some ailing body parts, and has to think about how it can rejuvenate itself, and in my opinion, this is primarily through customer-centricity.” The Singapore Turf Club, which has long been playing catch-up with its Far Eastern neighbour, echoed the theme of customercentricity through speaker Kim Heng Teo. Two casinos have opened in Singapore in recent years and Heng Teo stressed the need to “bring out the emotive connection between the customer and the sport itself, rather than focusing on purely gaming.”
Another international speaker with firsthand experience of gaming is Bill Hogwood, deputy chairman of the US’s Philadelphia Park and Parx Casino – a racecourse on its knees before it opened a casino there in 2007, a lifeline which has kept the racecourse alive, and just about kicking. “Without the slot machines, the racecourse wouldn’t be here – it’s as simple as that,” he admitted. “We’d love to convert these players into race fans but we need big names running here. We haven’t had a Smarty Jones, who used to get 10,000 people to the track to
watch him work in the morning, for a long time now. There just aren’t the horses or stories to get people to watch racing here.” At least British racing doesn’t have that problem as both Rod Street, chief executive of Racing for Change and the British Champions Series, and Simon Bazalgette, chief executive of the Jockey Club Group, were quick to emphasise. Street said: “The very first race of the British Champions Series, which was won in such dramatic and sensational style by Frankel, definitely set the tone. “We’ve had great stories, such as the epic duels between So You Think and Workforce, and So You Think and Rewilding, Hayley Turner winning two Group 1 races, plus a Royal favourite for the Derby with Carlton House – we’ve been lucky with the stories, which have all led us to the big finale of Champions Day. “We are a great sport with iconic events like the Grand National and Derby. We have colour, spectacles and drama, but I always believe we can grow. Let’s not get complacent; there is a lot of competition for the betting pound, leisure pound and broadcast pound, so we have to be on our mettle.” Bazalgette added: “We’ve been doing some great things such as Racing for Change and the British Champions Series, and the figures show we are making progress. “TV audiences are up 30 per cent to 40 per cent, while attendances are up five per cent and six per cent. We’re getting a lot of things right. “But the funding, which comes from betting operators through the Levy, is not working and is based on 50-year-old legislation which needs to be fixed.”
The funding problem
Ah yes, the Levy. While the racing product itself seems to be in good health, its longevity and funding is of course largely dependent on the Levy – a focal point MP John Penrose opened with, and a matter which subsequently pervaded every session. MP John Penrose, has urged “racing and gambling to be facing in the same direction” if the sport is to secure a future for a levy system or its replacement. “Racing is a wonderful, wonderful product, at the heart of our sporting and cultural heritage and an important part of our economy, but its underpinnings are fraying at the ends, and it’s causing a great deal of concern,” he said. “Racing and gambling should be symbiotic
Paul Roy: believes there is a solution to the Levy
in its discussions to redesign the levy system or an alternative for the 21st century, and even for the 22nd and 23rd centuries. People tell me it is designed to create friction. “Racing and gambling need to negotiate like two suppliers, such as Proctor and Gamble negotiate with Tesco. When politicians get involved it can be a kiss of death, so it’s up to racing and gambling to work together, with a little bit of prodding and pushing from me.” BHA chairman Paul Roy firmly believes a solution or alternative will be decided in the near future, saying: “The big issue is on funding, which is having an effect on prizemoney. “The position is so critical that it has to be resolved. Both racing and the betting industry understand that and there’s a big political will to actually do something now, so I am encouraged.” Roy was speaking at the final session of the conference, which was clearly successful in its attendance (there was standing room only for the opening session), and its luring of some key international speakers. But aside from networking, those who did travel far would have been left wondering exactly what they were taking back home with them. A tighter structuring of the conference is needed; two sessions and two workshops possibly, with more internationally relevant sessions on themes such as co-mingling and marketing. There was also a notable absence from the Middle East and the rest of Europe. Get the above right, and the Leaders In Racing conference will have a future.
Stallions to stand in China
Dick Turpin goes to The emerging racing nation to import two Darley sires The National Stud
aRLEY is to stand two stallions in China in 2012 in support of the country’s fledgling thoroughbred industry. Jalil, a son of Storm Cat who cost $9.7 million as a yearling and who went on to win the Group 2 Maktoum Challenge in Dubai for Godolphin, will stand at Lisui Farm in Beijing, while the Australian Group 1 winner Sousa, a son of Galileo who took the Spring Champion Stakes, is to stand at Red Lake Farm in Inner Mongolia. The stallions will be managed by Junling Sun, a graduate of the Darley Flying Start programme. John Ferguson, Sheikh Mohammed’s bloodstock advisor, said: “Sheikh Mohammed
is eager to support the emergence of the Chinese thoroughbred industry and is particularly pleased he can contribute to the development of the Chinese racehorse. Sheikh Mohammed has selected these two stallions as they are both exceptional physical specimens, each boast stellar Classic bloodlines, and both performed with great credit at the highest level.”
Eastern Anthem to Withyslade Stud The newly established Withyslade Stud is to stand Eastern Anthem, winner of the Dubai Sheema Classic (G1), alongside its recent stallion acquisition Indian Haven. A fee will be announced in the near future.
No doubts... ’ ,
...for leading sales consignor Ted Voute, who voices his opinion on all things bloodstock and sales-related
he yearling sales this year really took everybody by surprise; maybe if we had analysed the supply and demand factor prior to the start we may have had a better clue. Simply, if the number of horses in training remains the same, but the number of foals decreases, then the bloodstock market will increase. Looking ahead to next year, assuming that the number of horses in training remains the same, we should see a similar rise next year as well. The increases at Tattersalls were dramatic and a few other points helped to contribute. The Qatar Royal family strengthened their involvement by buying more and for higher prices. Their presence, along with the Maktoums on the first day, ignited the sale as it always does if a principle does. Many other principles attended for at least a day, including Jim Hay, Andrew Tinkler, Craig Bennett (both as a seller and a buyer), Tony Nerses with S Al Homeizi and Sir Robert Ogden. In April, Tattersalls had been particularly stringent on accepting marginal pedigrees for fillies resulting in a stronger and smaller group in
The dual Group 1-winning miler Dick Turpin has been bought by The National Stud, Newmarket. A majority share will be retained by stud, with the remainder syndicated. It is the first stallion purchase since the stud was transferred to Jockey Club ownership in 2008. A son of Arakan, Dick Turpin won the Richmond Stakes (G2) as a juvenile, the Prix Jean Prat (G1) at three and recently the Premio Vittorio Di Capua (G1). The stud’s managing director Brian O’Rourke said: “I am keen to keep the momentum of the stud’s recent successes by finding new and exciting stallions. The market is competitive but I think we have found a future star in Dick Turpin. He has performed consistently at the highest level and is very good looking with a nice easy action.”
A range of influences for strong October sale
their sale, particularly in Book 2. The last reason was the “Acclamation effect”; every time I looked at the screen one of his was making 200,000gns, and helped to ensure that Rathbarry Stud was the leading vendor in Book 2. Looking forward everybody I talk too says they have the best foal crop for years and, provided the winter is not overly harsh, I can see next year’s yearling sales having the same trend – even this month’s foal sale having an element of strength. Backtracking to the shipping in and availability of yearlings to be shown, in general many vendors shipped in their Book 1 yearlings on the Saturday before the Arc, with the Book 2 yearlings moving in the following Saturday. The result was fantastic; the agents who needed to go to the Arc had plenty of time to go to France – in the case of trainer John Gosden he had time to get his plane released by the French authorities. The following week, as vendors, we were able to enjoy a day’s racing at the Future Champions Day. The format with the number of yearlings worked well. Almost every principal agent looked
at every yearling in Book 1 giving the yearlings the respect they deserved as the premier collection of yearlings in Europe. We still had what I call the “knockers”, who are runners for the bigger agents knocking out everything but the super correct yearlings enabling them to see a smaller number of yearlings. Many yearlings are not meant to be correct and if agents know a family and a pedigree page they will understand that an entire family can, for instance, toe out on their right fore. Those bloodstock agents, who have selected many Group 1 winners themselves, will take this into consideration when looking at the total package, but can’t do that on a shortened list put together by a enthusiatic relative newcomer who, in some cases, may have never had an association with a stakes horse, let alone left one on a list. On a final note, Qipco Champions Day was a resounding success. Although tired from two weeks of selling yearlings, I ventured down to Ascot for what turned out to be a wellattended day. They did have great weather and outstanding horseflesh to help the day along.

Nine from nine
Sue Montgomery reports on a day in which Frankel remained unbeaten
n the end, with the help of a freakish talent and some freakish weather and despite some crass timing by racing’s administrators, the inaugural British Champions Day at Ascot was undoubtedly a stunning success. The horse is, after all, at the heart of the sport and, this season, one horse in particular. And at the most valuable racing fixture ever held in Britain, the peerless Frankel delivered a performance to match the occasion. But – and in this case there has to be a but – his glorious nine from nine came at
the end of a week of controversy that could have surely been averted with only a little thought. Just five days before Ascot’s £3 million showcase card, underwritten by the Qatari investment company Qipco, the British Horseracing Authority decided to introduce, without any bedding-in period, a new regime of whip regulations and penalties. Even a work-experience junior in Nostradamus’ back office might have foreseen rocks ahead. And sure enough, the culture shock in the saddle was severe and led to immediate and multiple rule breaches, with
accompanying punishments and inevitable negative publicity. Though jockeys had been party to the year-long consultations that led to the changes (brought in to try to assuage public perceptions about whip abuse), in practice they found the instant adjustment difficult, especially to the notion of a maximum of five hits in the final furlong. Before Champions Day, 11 riders had fallen foul of the new system, including that excellent horseman Richard Hughes, who handed in his licence in protest after a cumulative 15-day ban for two marginal

uk racing offences ruled him out of the Breeders’ Cup. On Champions Day itself, Christophe Soumillon made a similarly innocuous mistake - six last-furlong hits instead of five - in winning the Champion Stakes on Cirrus Des Aigles. The Belgian picked up a five-day suspension, the loss of his riding fee and, most swingeing, the loss of his prize-money percentage. That worked out at some £52,000, which was in effect the most punitive financial penalty ever levied by the authorities in Britain; it exceeded the £40,000 fine handed to jumps trainer Nicky Henderson in 2009 for the administration of prohibited substances. Soumillon was vociferously both furious and incredulous and post-race his first reaction was that he would seek legal advice. At the time of writing, the outcome of his
intentions and of the meeting between the sport’s British administrators and representatives of the Professional Jockeys’ Association scheduled in order to avert a threat of strike action by riders had yet to be resolved. No member of the weighing room has a any problem with the new limit imposed for strikes with the whip, seven during the course of a race on the Flat, eight over jumps. It is to be hoped that the issues giving concern – primarily what are seen as draconian penalties for minor infringements, the final-furlong situation and the lack of any discretion allowed to stewards – can be, and have been, sorted out without any further embarrassment to the sport. So, back to Ascot. The creation of British Champions Day had not been without its own
contentiousness, in that the autumn calendar, particularly the two-year-old programme, had been vandalised to accommodate it as the sport sought to create interest beyond its parochial boundaries And the organisers had an outrageous benediction from luck, or fortune, or destiny, call it what you will. First, there was Frankel; who would have offered odds against another wonder horse emerging to engage the public just two years after Sea The Stars, and one trained by a much-loved icon? Secondly, there was the gilded Indian summer; eight times out of ten mid-October would have provided bad weather and worse going. Even Rod Street, chief executive of the British Champions initiative, admitted that he could have written the script. Many leading professionals, while

approving the concept of a valuable end-ofseason showcase for the British arm of what is now a global sport, had expressed concern at the late date chosen, which competes with, rather than complements, the two established international festivals of Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe weekend and the Breeders’ Cup. But, on the day, their goodwill towards the new project – or perhaps its enormous purses – ensured a depth of talent in every field and, happily, each of the five Group contests, before an enthusiastic crowd that marginally exceeded the course’s target of 25,000, was won by a horse worthy of the day’s eponymous billing. The jewel in the crown was, of course, Frankel, who, along with Sir Henry Cecil, was accorded a burst of applause and cheering on entering the parade ring before the £1

career, it is some fine trick. Cecil, Queally and the backroom team at Warren Place deserve every plaudit for their handling of Prince Khalid Abdullah’s explosively talented colourbearer through a season that started in the Greenham Stakes back in April, when he also beat Excelebration by 4l. The three-year-old has matured mentally and physically as the year has progressed and the sight of him lobbing in
fluid, elegant relaxation to the start – Queally took him quietly to the far side of the track, away from his rivals – was sheer pleasure. In full flight the son of Galileo is not just a thing of beauty, but ruthlessly efficient. The Turftrax sectional timings in use on Champions Day – the first at Ascot in the track’s 300-year history – showed that, in cutting down his pacemaker Bullet Train at will before the quarter-mile pole, he clocked
a faster time for a furlong than Deacon Blues managed at any point in winning the Sprint. His pace through the ante-penultimate furlong, 10.99secs, was one of only six sub-11 second furlongs on the day; the other five all came from runners at various stages in the Sprint, with runner-up Wizz Kid’s 10.80 second furlong the fastest. And remaining on the subject of figures, those at Timeform have upped Frankel’s rating to 143, leaving only the immortals Sea Bird, Brigadier Gerard and Tudor Minstrel above him. Another view, that of the BHA handicappers, leaves him on 135. The colt is highly unlikely to run again this season and so we must wait until next season to see him test the limits of his ability. And it must be a niggle that, had the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes remained in its traditional September slot, he might have been asked to explore new horizons this year, rather than repeat the same feat, however brilliantly.

The limitations of sectional timing in Britain, where racecourses are all so charmingly different, are obvious, but a look at Fame And Glory’s fractions confirm Spencer’s thoroughly effective control of pace. Yes, the son of Montjeu ran the last two furlongs slower than any of the three who followed him in, virtually in line abreast – Opinion Poll, Colour Vision and Nehaam – but by then Spencer had sealed the result, winding up the gallop through the half-mile before the turn in with an increase of pace from Fame And
Frankel apart, Champions Day provided plenty to delight both old racing lags and any newcomers to the game
plenty to delight both old racing lags and any newcomers to the game. There was the masterclass in riding from the front given by Jamie Spencer on Fame And Glory in the Long Distance Cup, coupled with the skill of trainer Aidan O’Brien in getting the five-yearold back to his Gold Cup-winning best; the confirmation of generally under-rated Oaks heroine Dancing Rain as one of the best of her age and sex in the Fillies’ And Mares’ Stakes; and the continuing upward mobility of Deacon Blues in the Sprint.
Glory that none of his rivals could match. That the best European middle-distance horses are, this year, much of a muchness (with the possible exception of runaway Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe heroine Danedream) was confirmed in the day’s richest contest, the £1.3 million Champion Stakes. The humbly-bred, hard-working Cirrus Des Aigles was, as a gelding, not eligible for the
Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe but gained ample reward for all his connections bar Soumillon with his gritty three-quarter length defeat of So You Think and Snow Fairy, who had finished fourth and third at Longchamp. The 1m2f contest, run round a bend for the first time at its new home, produced a course record time and it paid to be up with the pace; Midday, who nosed out Nathaniel for fourth, did best of the closers. Soumillon, never worse than fourth on a proven stayer, rode a peach of a race (he had taken over from the horse’s regular but less experienced rider Franck Blondel) and any member of the public whose sensibilities were outraged by the six smacks he gave to his willing partner should perhaps acknowledge that a physical sport involving well-prepared livestock is not for them. The Champion Stakes was a first Group 1 success for the globetrotting five-year-old on his 39th outing, and a fourth, and easily the most valuable, for his trainer Corine BarandeBarbe. The mistress of one of Chantilly’s smaller stables had previously won the Prix de Diane and Vermeille with Carling in 1995 and
Danedream: the daughter of Lomitas turned a €9,000 investment into the stuff of dreams when winning the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe
uk racing the 1996 Prix Royal-Oak with Red Roses Story. Cirrus Des Aigles, narrowly beaten by such as Goldikova and Sarafina during the summer, is the only Pattern winner by Even Top, who failed by a short-head to catch Mark Of Esteem in the 1996 2,000 Guineas and in later life found obscurity as a sire in France. One of the tags attached to Champions Day was Best Of British, which could present a mixed message to any newcomers about the international nature of the racing and bloodstock business. Cirrus Des Aigles was bred in France, the sires of Fame And Glory (Montjeu), Frankel (Galileo) and Dancing Rain (Danehill Dancer) all stand at Coolmore. The only British-based stallion represented in the winners’ circle after any of the day’s five Group races was Whitsbury Manor veteran Compton Place,
responsible for Deacon Blues. But, of course, it is not necessary to have a recognisable pedigree for top-level success. Danedream was cast off last year by her German breeders for just €9,000 as an unraced, unpreposessing two-year-old by Lomitas. The sire overcame claustrophobia to prove himself on the track and then came through kidnap threats and poisoning and was spirited away from Germany to live for a time under an assumed name, before returning home to make a name as a stallion. Before the Arc, Danedream caught the eye of Japanese owner-breeder Teruya Yoshida; the master of Shadai Farm acquired a halfshare in her from her hobby owner Heiko Volz. The little bay has now won nearly £2.5 million, truly a Cinderella – or should that be Aschenputtel – filly. And there is no danger of
her going back to rags and a pumpkin. The Middle Park Stakes has a patchier record than the Dewhurst in unearthing future talent, but there is no doubting the worth of last year’s winner Dream Ahead, who confirmed his position as one of Europe’s top sprinters with his head defeat of Goldikova in the Prix de la Forêt on Arc day. His record of three Group 1s during his three-year-old campaign reads better than most in the division, notwithstanding Deacon Blues’ progressive profile. But without an overweening champion the sprinters have won and lost in their turns; in the Prix de l’Abbaye, for instance, it was that of six-yearold gelding Tangerine Trees to have his day. If not the best, Bryan Smart’s charge is certainly one of the best-named, by Mind Games out of Easy To Imagine.
Did we see a Future Champion at Newmarket – or was it in name only?
uch is the way of modern marketing, a label was also applied to the previous weekend’s card at Newmarket: Future Champions Day. But whether the latest winner of the Dewhurst Stakes can imitate Frankel remains to be seen; some do rise above the herd, some don’t. As Jim Bolger should know. Parish Hall was the Irishman’s fourth winner of Britain’s premier juvenile contest in six years, after New Approach, who went on to win the Derby, Teofilo, who never ran again, or Intense Focus, who did, but unsuccessfully. Galileo has been rewriting some of the records set by his own remarkable sire Sadler’s Wells, but one he missed was to produce a juvenile Group 1 winner from his first crop, which Sadler’s Wells did with Dewhurst dead-heaters Scenic and Prince Of Dance. That feat has but skipped a generation, though. Parish Hall, bred by his trainer, is from the first crop of Galileo’s son Teofilo, whose unbeaten career climaxed with his own Dewhurst victory and who now stands under the Darley banner at Kildangan. Bolger regards Parish Hall as a Derby, rather than Guineas, prospect and the colt, who quickened mid-race and then stayed on dourly to fend off Power by half a length, will not appear again until the spring. The rearrangement of the calendar means that two of Britain’s three top-level contests for juvenile colts are now run on the same day and for the Aidan O’Brien-trained Crusade, who took the Middle Park Stakes (G1) by three-quarters of a length in another bunch finish, there are more immediate challenges than next season and another family trait to live up to. The US-bred son of Mr Greeley will try to emulate his maternal grandsire Johannesburg by following up in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile. Another two-year-old from these parts who will try her hand in Kentucky is the John Gosden-trained Elusive Kate, whose Prix Marcel
Boussac (G1) victory put her in line for the Juvenile Fillies’ Turf. And two days later the daughter of Elusive Quality has a date in the FasigTipton sale ring. Neither Parish Hall nor Crusade caused a monster ripple in next year’s Classic markets, but one who did was the Ballydoyle inmate Wading, eyecatching winner of the Rockfel Stakes. The filly is now challenging her stablemate Maybe at the head of the Oaks betting and could hardly be better-bred for that task, as a daughter of Montjeu out of a Green Desert half-sister to Galileo and Sea The Stars. In France we saw a first-season sire claim Group 1 glory with his first-crop. The two-year-old Dabirsim, who made it five from five so impressively in the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardère, is by Kentucky-based freshman sire Hat Trick, a son of Sunday Silence who was a top-flight miler in Japan and Hong Kong. The Prix Marcel Boussac winner Elusive Kate is to head next to the US for the races and then the sales

How will Champions’ Day affect the Breeders’ Cup? Asks John Sparkman ahead of the meeting at Churchill Downs
ow much will the quickfire combination of Arc weekend and British Champions Day affect the fields at the Breeders’ Cup? That is a question that is likely to be answered more definitively in coming years, but since other rich fall races in the Orient have already diluted the class of some Breeders’ Cup races, it is inevitable that they will have an effect. The prospect of a weaker challenge from Europe is more than a little ironic this year, given the fact that the majority of the defenders of US racing pride do not appear to be particularly menacing. To put it bluntly, if Europeans really do have the best racehorses in the world, this might be their best chance in recent memory to prove it at Churchill Downs – at least on paper. If So You Think, or even his redoubtable conqueror in the Qipco Champion Stakes (G1) Cirrus Des Aigles, runs in the Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1), the most talented horse they would face would likely be 2010 champion juvenile Uncle Mo, whose ability to stay 1m2f must be taken entirely on trust. Victim of a well-publicised liver disease that compromised his three-year-old season, Uncle Mo flashed his brilliance again in the Kelso Handicap (G2) at Belmont Park on October 1, winning as he liked in a fast time. That race, though, was over a mile, and the only time the son of Indian Charlie, a sire not noted for getting stayers, tried a longer distance he was beaten in the Wood Memorial Stakes (G1). Likewise, the second most highly regarded

three-year-old of the year, Charlotte Weber’s To Honor And Serve, has never run beyond 1m1f, but he too returned to his best form with his easy victory at that distance in the Pennsylvania Derby (G2) on September 24. To Honor and Serve is certainly bred to stay though, by Bernardini out of a Deputy Minister mare from the great Golden Trail family, but in his case his class must be taken on trust. Among the four most accomplished older horses, Flat Out, Game on Dude, Tizway and the filly Havre De Grace, only Havre De Grace has shown real brilliance. However, only one female, Zenyatta, has won the Classic, and good as she is, Havre De Grace is no Zenyatta. On balance, if Uncle Mo stays the trip, he will win, but no one will know whether he does or not until the home stretch at Churchill Downs on November 5. With Havre De Grace in the Classic and her toughest rival Blind Luck on the sidelines after a mysteriously bad performance in the Ladies Secret Stakes (G1), the Ladies Classic (G1) field looks even weaker. The three-yearold fillies It’s Tricky, Plum Pretty, Royal Delta and Zazu should resolve their differences for the division championship on all known form. It’s Tricky and Plum Pretty have swapped victories in major races and Royal Delta beat them both over 1m2f in the Alabama Stakes (G1), but the Ladies Classic is only 1m1f. That distance also suits Zazu, the best filly on the West Coast who was beaten by Plum Pretty in the Kentucky Oaks (G1) in her only start east of the Rockies. European horses, of course, are most at home in the six turf races, and, strangely enough, US representation in most of those races may be stronger than usual this year, partly due to the emergence of 2004 American turf champion Kitten’s Joy this year as a very good sire of turf horses. His Stephanie’s Kitten, winner of the Darley Alcibiades Stakes (G1) over Keeneland’s Polytrack, should be a

formidable obstacle to whatever Aidan O’Brien decides to send over for the Juvenile Fillies Turf (G2), Dean’s Kitten could have something to say about the destination of the Breeders’ Cup Turf (G1) trophy after almost running down Cape Blanco in the Joe Hirsch Turf Classic (G1), Kitten’s Kid will be a factor in the Juvenile Turf (G1) and Holiday for Kitten might show up to challenge males in the Turf Sprint (G2). The feline repetition of those names identifies them not only as the progeny of Kitten’s Joy, but as the pride and joy of
the always entertaining Ken Ramsey, who named Kitten’s Joy for his wife Sarah “Kitten” Ramsey. Not many Kentucky breeders wanted to breed to a turf horse when Ramsey sent Kitten’s Joy to stud, and they are now paying for that shortsighted bias while Ramsey reaps the rewards of his support of his champion. If it were left to US-breds, the Filly and Mare Turf (G1) would probably be there for the taking with last year’s winner Shared Account having missed most of this season. The French-bred, US-trained Stacelita, though, has dominated fillies’ turf races this summer, and European-trained fillies such as Announce, Misty For Me and Nahrain will have to improve to challenge her on what is now her home turf. Everyone on both sides of the Atlantic though will be holding their breath when the beloved Goldikova goes into the gate for the fourth time in the Breeders’ Cup Mile (G1). Gio Ponti, second last year, will be back to challenge after winning the Shadwell Turf Mile (G1) again, but he is a six-year-old, just like the mare, and, likewise, may not be quite as formidable as he once was. Strong Suit would and should start favourite over anything else the US has to offer. Grace Hall, by Empire Maker, Weemissfrankie, by Sunriver, and My Miss Aurelia, by Smart Strike, have the best form among our juvenile fillies, and Union Rags, by Dixie Union, and Creative Cause, by Giant’s Causeway, have the most to recommend them on paper among the colts. One name to watch out for though among the colts, though, is Hansen, an almost white Tapit colt with a virtually nonexistent female line, who absolutely obliterated his field in the Kentucky Cup Juvenile Stakes. He may go as fast as he can as far as he can. Aidan O’Brien seems sure to send something over for most of the juvenile races, and he could help make the new Juvenile Sprint a more interesting race if he runs Middle Park Stakes (G1) winner Crusade, who could also run in the Juvenile itself or the Juvenile Turf. The folks who run the Breeders’ Cup are not stupid, and they have tried to make it easier for all to run at the Cup meeting through their “Win and you’re in” series. With all the money available for European runners in Paris, Berkshire, Hong Kong and Tokyo, owners of top-class horses are now spoilt for choice. Who can blame them for taking their best shot wherever they believe their best chance lies?

Sunday heading for a Hat Trick Sunday Silence is becoming an international sire of sires after first-season stallion Hat Trick got the Prix Jean-Luc LagardĂ¨re winner and likely European champion two-year-old Dabirsim, writes Alan Porter. It is four years since Natagora, a daughter of the Sunday Silence stallion Divine Light, won the Cheveley Park Stakes and became champion of her year Dabirsim: wins the Prix Jean-Luc LagardĂ¨re, becoming a first Group 1 winner for Hat Trick, a son of Sunday Silence
Considering that he has a juvenile star in his first crop, it might come as quite a surprise to find that Hat Trick never even started at two, and didn’t win his first black-type event until four
t’s often been related that the US Horse of the Year, champion threeyear-old, and dual Classic winner Sunday Silence, achieved those honours after failing to meet his reserve as both a yearling and a two-year-old. Similarly, despite his racetrack achievements, he was also unwanted as a stallion prospect in his own country and was sold to Japan after an attempt at selling shares at a price of $250,000 was met with a degree of interest that was described as somewhere between “low and non-existent.” Of course, it’s also been well-documented that Sunday Silence went on to singlehandedly bring the Japanese breeding industry to a totally new level. Not only have his sons and grandsons dominated Japanese
racing for the better part of 20 years, but their offspring have also made a considerable international impact, winning such worldwide Group 1 events as the Dubai World Cup, 1,000 Guineas, Cheveley Park Stakes, Melbourne Cup, American Oaks, Dubai Sheema Classic, Hong Kong Vase, New Zealand Thoroughbred Breeders’ Stakes, Victoria Oaks, Storm Queen Stakes, Australian Cup and AJC Queen Elizabeth Stakes. The Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe (G1) weekend saw the wheel turn full circle. Dabirsim, who produced an electrifying turn of foot to win the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardère (G1), in the process possibly earning himself the title as European champion two-yearold colt, is from the first crop of Hat Trick, a now US-based Sunday Silence stallion but who ran in Japan and was unwanted in his own country, despite his standing as recordbreaking champion. Considering that he has a juvenile star in his first crop, it might come as quite a surprise to find that Hat Trick did not run at two, and didn’t win his first black-type event until four. However, he did win four of five starts at three, a mile maiden at Tokyo on his debut and a trio of events regarded as Japanese stakes races (but not black-type for international cataloguing purposes) overa mile and 1m1f. His sole defeat at three came when he was unplacd in the 1m1f Radio Tampa Sho on his third start. At four, Hat Trick began the year with wins in the Sports Nippon Sho Kyoto Kimpai Handicap (G3) and Tokyo Shimbun Hai (G3). After that bright start, he suffered a mid-season slump, and in four races from
April to the end of October, he finished no better than fifth. However, his form returned as suddenly and as dramatically as it had left, and just 20 days after he’d finished seventh in the Autumn Tenno Sho (G1), Hat Trick defeated 16 opponents for the Mile Championship (G1), scoring by a nose from the outstanding runner Daiwa Major (also by Sunday Silence) setting a new Japanese record for the distance. Three weeks later, Hat Trick travelled to Hong Kong, where he confirmed his class with a win over the locally trained The Duke, with English-trained Group 1 winners Rakti and Court Masterpiece, Hong Kong star Bullish Luck and his Grade 1-winning countryman Asakusa Den’en further behind. His last two performances of the year were sufficient to earn Hat Trick the title of the 2005 Japanese champion miler, but they were also the last glimpses of top-class form that he was to display. He started seven times at five without finishing better than seventh, and ended his career with another unplaced effort on his sole outing at six. The nose-dive in his form, coupled with his distance limitations – Japan being one of the few major racing juristictions where middle-distance stamina is revered over speed – limited Hat Trick’s stallion appeal at home, especially in view of the number of Sunday Silence sons who were already available. In the spring of 2007, around a month after Hat Trick’s final start, South African bloodstock agent Robin Bruss, along with Barry Irwin of Team Valor International, who bred and raced this year’s Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom, brought Hat Trick’s availability to the attention of John T. L. Jones of Walmac Farm, Lexington, Kentucky.
To stud in Kentucky
A deal was struck and Hat Trick duly began his stud career in the bluegrass. In addition to being generally regarded as the best miler sired by Sunday Silence, Hat Trick had added US appeal, in that his dam was the US-bred and raced Tricky Code. By Lost Code (by Codex, from the Arts And Letters branch of the Ribot line), Tricky Code was a tough, durable runner, typical of her sire’s best offspring. She ran from two to six years of age, won nine of 30 starts, including the Santa Ynez Breeders’ Cup Stakes (G2) and Bara Lass Stakes on dirt and the Miesque Stakes on turf, and was several times stakes placed, including when third in the Oak Leaf Stakes (G1). Like her son, she did her best work at shorter distances, all her wins coming
horse profile at between 6f and a mile. Hat Trick’s credentials were sufficient to see him commence his stud career in 2008 at a fee of $15,000, and attract 120 mares in his initial season. Since then, like many other unproven sires in the prevailing economic climate, he’s found the going much tougher – even though his fee has declined in stages to the $6,000 live foal for which he was advertised in 2011, he covered 57 mares in his second year and just 32 in his third. In his first year at stud, he also shuttled to the Independent Stallion Station, Victoria, Australia, where he covered 32 mares getting 29 live foals. Subsequently, he has spent the southern hemisphere seasons at Haras El Mallin in Argentina.
Rumored with a global pedigree
Dabirsim’s dam Rumored, like Hat Trick, has an international background. A daughter of the Nijinsky stallion Royal Academy – a horse whose travels saw him stand in Ireland, the US, Australia and South America – she was born and raced in the US. A $325,000 yearling purchase, Rumored displayed only modest talent as a runner her best effort in six starts saw her finish second in a maiden special weight at Saratoga. She has produced four other starters, three of which have won, including the High Yield gelding Preferred Yield, who was winner of a non black-type stakes at Turf Paradise in
Arizona and was placed in minor black-type events in Arizona and New Mexico. In 2008 she was sold for $60,000 in foal to Hat Trick at the Keeneland November Sales, and exported to France. Rumoured’s dam, the Rainbow Quest mare Bright Generation, was forward enough to win twice at two in England, and to finish second in the Moyglare Stud Stakes (G1). At three, she won the Italian Oaks (G1) and finished second in the Long Island Handicap (G2) in the US. In addition to Rumored, Bright Generation is also dam of the Volponi colt Fathayer, winner of the Premio Guido Beradelli (G3). Bright Generation was the only blacktype scorer for her dam, the winning Young Generation mare New Generation, also the grand-dam of Italian Listed winner Holy Moon, who in turn produced Cherry Collect, winner of two Listed races at two in Italy this year. Dabirsim’s fourth dam Madina preceeds her great-great-grandson as a Prix Morny winner, having won the 1967 renewal. She also finished second in the Prix de la Salamandre. Subsequently, Madina produced Nonoalca, a two-time Group scorer who also finished second in the French 1,000 Guineas (G1). She is ancestress of several other stakes winners, most notably Nonoalca’s son Great Navigator, who was successful in the Hopeful Stakes (G1). Madina was out of the Marcel Boussac-bred mare, Granada. She had a typical Boussac pedigree featuring the great Tourbillon 3 x 2, and while she made no impact as a runner,
Victory parade: jockey Frankie Dettori enjoys the winning moment after the Group 1 victory
Granada was three-parts sister to the 1951 Prix de la Salamandre victor, Catumbo. This is a family that produced several other major runners for Boussac, among them Jock, a brother to Aralia, the granddam of Granada, and Scratch (out of a sister to Aralia), who was successful in the French Derby and St. Leger in 1950.
Northern Dancer nick
It’s no great shock to see the cross that produced Dabirsim work. In fact in an analysis of the pedigree of Hat Trick, written before he had covered his first mares, we noted that: “Mares from the Northern Dancer line have supplied nearly 50 per cent of the stakes winners sired by Sunday Silence and his sons, and one would look for Northern Dancer to be the strongest cross for Hat Trick, whose pedigree is free of this strain. European and US Northern Dancer line broodmare sires who have produced stakes winners for Sunday Silence and his sons include Lyphard (and sons Alzao and Al Nasr), Nijinsky and his sons Caerleon, Royal Academy and Whiskey Road, the sire of Strawberry Road.” Sunday Silence sired 17 stakes winners from 132 starters out of mares by Nijinsky and his sons (13 per cent). A daughter of Nijinsky, Dancing Key produced not only Sunday Silence’s champion colt Dance In the Dark (subsequently a successful sire), but also champion fillies Dance Partner and Dance In The Mood. Among the stakes winners by Sunday Silence out of mares by sons of Nijinsky was the Japanese graded winner Machikane Aura, who was out of a mare by Royal Academy. There are also numerous graded winners by sons of Sunday Silence out of Nijinsky line mares, among them the Japanese Classic winner Buena Vista (whose sire, Special Week is also a Sunday Silence/Nijinsky cross), and Hirono d’Amour, who took the Spring TennoSho (G1), and was a fancied challenger for this year’s Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe (G1). Four years ago, the French-trained filly Natagora, by the unheralded Sunday Silence stallion Divine Light, established herself as one of Europe’s best with victories in the Prix La Fleche, Prix du Bois (G3), Prix Robert Papin (G2), and Cheveley Park Stakes (G1). The following year she achieved Classic honours in the 1,000 Guineas (G1). It will be no surprise if history repeats itself in 2011, with Dabirsim in the French or English 2,000 Guineas.
Deadly Doping Meets Its Match Trainers Praise Natural Alternative. Mark Hansen reports
he pressure to win is so enormous that many horsemen resort to whatever it takes to get a piece of the purse or a decent sale… even if it means putting their horses’ lives in mortal danger by doping them with illegal synthetic erythropoietin (EPO) drugs to boost endurance. Veterinarian Gary Smith said, “It’s a problem all over the industry. There is no way horses should be put on (synthetic) EPO.” So how do racers win? How do you gain a competitive edge without harming your horses or risking your livelihood? The answer may be found in a safe all-natural horse supplement that legally supercharges natural EPO function. Why is EPO boosting so critical? Just like in people, a horse’s muscles require oxygen for fuel. Red blood cells are the body’s oxygencarrying cells. A higher red blood cell count = more oxygen = more muscle energy. Elevated muscle energy helps the horse perform harder, faster and longer during endurance events. All horses naturally produce EPO in their kidneys to stimulate production of new red blood cells from bone marrow. In short, EPO is a natural “blood builder.” With EPO doping, trainers try to boost the EPO effect to get a winning performance
every time. They use a synthetic EPO (recombinant human EPO), even though the side effects can kill the horse. That’s one reason why it’s illegal. Fortunately there’s another option. EPOEquine is a safe, highly effective natural dietary supplement accepted by the racehorse community. A Kentucky trainer who refused to give out his name, said, “I don’t want my competition to know about this.” He found EPO-Equine to be so effective that he’s dead set against disclosing who he is, who his horses are, or even where he trains and races. He first started ordering a single jar of EPO-Equine once a month. Now he’s ordering several CASES each month. And he won’t tell BRL exactly why. He said respectfully, “Sorry – no way.” Bioengineers at U.S. based Biomedical Research Laboratories (BRL), first discovered a completely natural EPO-booster for human athletes (and it’s working miracles for top athletes and amateurs around the world). Seeing these results, horse trainers contacted BRL and asked about using this natural formula for their animals. That’s when the BRL team dug deeper and discovered a proprietary, horse-friendly strain of a common herb that delivers uncommon
blood-building results. EPO-Equine is based on the EPO-boosting abilities of a certain strain of Echinacea that’s astounding researchers and trainers alike. (It’s not a strain you can find at the local health store.) Veterinarians at the Equine Research Centre in Ontario, Canada ran a doubleblind trial investigating the blood building properties of the active ingredient in EPOEquine in healthy horses. For 42 days, one group of horses was supplemented with the active ingredient in EPO-Equine and another group of horses was given a placebo. The supplement delivered significant blood building results, increasing red blood cell count and hemoglobin levels. Researchers also observed improved blood quality and increased oxygen transport in the supplemented horses; all leading to elevated exercise physiology and performance. The patent-pending formula in EPO-Equine contains a dozen different herbs, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory components combined to accelerate natural red blood cell and EPO production…for remarkable speed, strength and stamina right out of the gate. Trainers find it easy to add just 1 scoop (3.2 grams) of EPO-Equine to the horse’s daily feeding routine in the barn or on the road. Within a few weeks of daily use, you can expect to see increased red blood cell levels with no undesirable side effects. This translates to a significantly greater oxygen levels and improved muscle performance; and supercharged endurance with faster recovery after hard exercise. Nothing else is scientifically proven to deliver these benefits in a completely safe, natural and legal formula. Compared to the cost of veterinarians, drugs, icing, tapping the knees, and putting the horse on Bute; or even the consequences of being banned for synthetic doping, EPOEquine is very affordable at the low price of just $59.95 per jar. Or save $20 per jar if you have multiple horses or you’re ready to commit to a larger trial with a 12-jar case at just $39.95 per jar. EPO-Equine can be ordered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at www.EPOEquine.com or 1-800-557-9055, and comes with a 100% money-back satisfaction guarantee.

Jocelyn de Moubray reviews this autumn’s yearling sales season, which saw an upturn in fortunes for many vendors and generally for the sales companies
or the first time in five years many of those selling yearlings at Tattersalls enjoyed themselves this October. In any market as unstable as the thoroughbred market the emotions of those closely involved have a direct influence on outcomes; if vendors were feeling more optimistic at the end of the two weeks of the October 1 and October 2 sale, then the market may well have turned and be able to return to growth over the years to come. Since 2007 the European bloodstock market has fallen significantly with prices down by somewhere around 20 to 25 per cent, while the number of foals born in Europe’s major breeding countries has fallen by a similar amount. Across Europe sales plunged in 2008, appeared to stabilise in 2009, only to again fall heavily in 2010.
This year the market is back off the floor, it could turn out to be another dead cat bounce, but the fall in the number of yearlings reaching the market and declining production costs – some if not all stallions are cheaper than they were back in 2006 – suggest that, this time, the recovery might be for real. For those breeders still involved, it should become easier to sell yearlings profitably. Prices for the better yearlings in Europe are still, in historical terms, very low. The average price of the best 1,300 yearlings sold in Europe is in real terms the lowest recorded this century and some 30 per cent off the peak recorded in 2003. What has changed in the market is not so much the demand for future racehorses, but the supply, and if the market has not plunged further it is because the major stallion owners have stepped in to protect their own longterm investments.
Numbers down 30% but aggregate up 9%
The full story of the Tattersalls October 1 and 2 sales is more or less told in a few statistics. If you combine the two sales, the number of yearlings offered for sale was down by 30 per cent from 2010 to 2011, and yet the number sold fell by only 12 per cent; the combined aggregate was up by nine per cent and the average price was up by just over three per cent. In real terms it is safe to say that the average price of a yearling sold in October 1 and 2 was stable and yet because Tattersalls offered about 330 fewer yearlings, it felt like a different market altogether. If a sales company offers 30 per cent fewer yearlings, but succeeds in attracting the same buyers, then the market will bounce strongly as the buyers will be forced to compete with each other and not just with the vendors. In recent years this has happened in Deauville, in Baden-Baden and now in Newmarket.

It works particularly well at yearling auctions because the buyers are, by the nature of what they are trying to achieve, competitive. If one buyer is clearly bidding against a rival owner or trainer they are far more likely to have another bid or two than if their rival is someone acting for the vendor. At bloodstock auctions competition creates demand, and when the market is poor what is missing is not quality or money, but confidence.
Coolmore and Darley busy
It is never easy to estimate exactly how much Darley, Shadwell and the other Maktoum family members and associates spend at a yearling sale, and there is always the same uncertainty surrounding the purchases of Coolmore and its associates, but it is safe to say that both groups were actively supporting the progeny of their stallions in Newmarket.
Both stud groups have made substantial investments in stallions and would have been the biggest losers if the market had fallen 70 per cent as it did in the early 1990s
Figures from the 2011 European yearling sales show the gains made this year across the board in real terms
20.00 0 -
Coolmore appeared to be concentrating on the progeny of Montjeu and to some degree Duke Of Marmalade, whereas the Maktoum representatives and trainers were strong supporters of the progeny of Authorized, Cape Cross, Dubawi, Nayef, New Approach, Shamardal, Teofilo and Invinicble Spirit. Both stud groups have made substantial investments in stallions and would have been the biggest losers if the market had fallen 70 per cent as it did in the early 1990s. Their support of the market is one of its few rational aspects, and it is, of course, warmly welcomed by those vendors whose yearlings are selected by the respective teams.

Tattersalls was one of the biggest winners of the 2011 yearling sale season. At various moments during the first decade of the

Well known but also new faces
It is at October 1 that the fees of Europe’s top stallions are determined and the sale is going to continue to attract many of the best commercial yearlings from Ireland in the near future
century the Newmarket-based company’s historical dominance of the European market looked to be in jeopardy as first Goffs and then Arqana seemed to be on an unstoppable upward surge. Its rivals are now beset with problems of format, timing, currency, and in France premiums, leaving Tattersalls to reassume its role of unrivalled leader. Tattersalls has, of course, the incalculable
advantage of being within a few minutes’ drive of the Maktoum family’s European base and it also seems to be the place where other bloodstock investors from the Middle East prefer to buy. It is at October 1 that the fees of Europe’s top stallions are determined and the sale is going to continue to attract many of the best commercial yearlings from Ireland in the near future.
The major buyers at October 1 and 2 are nearly all well known to the bloodstock world. Nurlan Bizakov, who purchased the Galileo – Brigid filly for 1,700,000gns at October 1 with Charlie Gordon Watson, has bought expensive yearlings in both Deauville and Newmarket in the past, with different advisors. The Niarchos family has not bought expensive yearlings recently but were busy again though can hardly be classified as newcomers, neither can Paul Makin, the purchaser of Pour Moi’s half-sister through Badgers Bloodstock. Perhaps the most significant newcomer is Badgers Bloodstock’s other major client Robert Geffen, the part-owner of the St Leger winner Arctic Cosmos, who purchased the Galileo filly out of Peace Time from Gestüt Etzean for 800,000gns. Tony Nerses, John Ferguson, Gill Richardson and Mark

Premium problems in France
The European sales season started as usual in August in Deauville where the sale was held at a later date than has been the case recently, with a new format and, of course, a competely revamped sales pavillon. Unsurprisingly in the circumstances the sale’s first day was tentative with only 65 per cent of those offered selling through the ring. The sale picked up as it went on and on the second day Michael Goodbody purchased the second-highest price yearling of the year on behalf of Waratah Thoroughbreds when giving €1,700,000 for a daughter of Galileo and Sarafina’s half-sister from Jurgen Winter’s Haras de la Perelle. At the end of the sale the aggregate was up by 17 per cent and the average by one and a half per cent to €95,900; without the top lot the aggregate was still up 12 per cent though the average fell by four per cent with 44 more yearlings changing hands than had been the case in 2010. The positive aspects of the sale were the

new buyers, including the Australian buyers of the top lot and several groups of Japanese. The relative strength of the euro does not make it an easy sale for British buyers or those who reckon in US dollars. Aside from the problems of the Euro, which are outside its control or influence, Arqana has to resolve its problems of date and format. The later date may suit the vendors, but the format, running from Monday
to Thursday rather than the traditional weekend, may not have suited every buyer. More important than these technical questions for the future of the sale and of the French breeding industry is the pernicious effect of the premiums. The accompanyingly figures show the huge difference in trend between the qualified and non-qualified yearlings and this disparity is only going to get worse until the system

BBAG the surprise sale
The biggest surprise of the sales year was the unexpected success of the BBAG’s September sale in Baden-Baden. The sale was reduced to one day and the number of yearlings offered fell from 320 in 2009 to only 235 this year, resulting in a rise in the aggregate and average price of around 20 per cent. Although Darley’s support of the sale played an important role, there were also several important new domestic buyers, as well as the presence of Team Valor, the owner of Animal Kingdom, this year’s best winner from a German family, to boost demand.
DBS the best sale, Orby respectable but Newmarket’s challenge is too strong
The Goffs/Doncaster group’s two major sales, the Doncaster Premier and Goffs Orby, both returned very respectable results. The Orby Sale’s aggregate and average were almost the same as in 2010, despite the fact that the top price fell from €950,000 in 2010 to €350,000 in 2011. At Doncaster both the average price and aggregate rose by nearly 10 per cent, so in real terms, it was one of the best sales of the year. However, both DBS Premier and the Orby have fallen significantly from where they were during the boom and are going to find it ever harder to compete with the pull of Tattersalls for the best vendors and yearlings. A first step will surely to cut back on numbers. A reduction of even 20 per cent in the number offered would probably not affect the number of buyers attending either sale as both continue to produce major winners. Few of the buyers who made both these sales such a success have not been affected by the recession and the company’s current aim is probably to prepare as best it can for when there is an economic recovery.

is changed. It has reached the stage where nearly every buyer at the sale is looking for a qualified horse, which appear, as a result, to be expensive for those who don’t wish to race in France. The current system subsidises the production of ordinary horses, has done little to improve the standard of horses bred for the market in France and acts as a barrier to open trade and competition. At a time of economic contraction the foal crop in France is unchanged, the October sale is bursting at the seams, and there is no sign of the increased domestic demand needed to make up for the short fall of international demand during a recessionary period.

Ahead of Japan’s International meeting, Yuichi Goto, the manager of the Japan Racing Association’s London office, answers questions about the JRA and horseracing in Japan How strong is Japanese racing at present? Betting turnover has been dropping… What plans are there for Japanese racing? Since a peak in 1997, turnover has gradually fallen year on year. The current economic situation has had a big impact and, because the amount of money that each individual punter spends on betting tickets is declining, you could say that overall sales are becoming sluggish. However, the number of attendees on and off-course is still steady (2008 recorded the highest record at 177 million), and racing is still as popular as ever in Japan. Because of the earthquake and tsunami in March, one of our ten racecourses, Fukushima Racecourse, sustained a lot of damage and was unable to reopen. In order to support the disaster relief efforts, the JRA have been holding charity races around the country, and a portion of the proceeds from our new ‘Win 5’ betting ticket goes towards helping to overcome the disaster. After the earthquake, sales had fallen to just 88 per cent of what they were the previous year but, thanks to the efforts mentioned above, post-summer sales were equal to the same period last year, and the average sales for the year have risen to 94 per cent of the previous year’s. What issues does it have to overcome? Is it a problem that the number of racehorses are reduced? The serious economic situation that the local government racecourses are in is having an effect and the overall number of domestically bred racehorses is also decreasing. However, the number of horses registered with the JRA, and the number of runners is still sufficient so the number of races in Japan have not been reduced. In addition, thanks to technical improvements in horse training, the standard
Are there many owners wishing to get involved in the sport? How do owners become involved? In order to become a horse owner with the JRA, the applicant has to undergo strict checks into their personal and financial circumstances. Even though every year there is a fair number of people who apply to become a horse owner, the number of actual horse owners is slightly declining. At present, this is not having an effect on the number of horses, but horse ownership seems to be becoming more concentrated to the big owners.
In order to support the disaster relief efforts, the JRA have been holding charity races around the country, and a portion of the proceeds from our new ‘Win 5’ betting ticket goes towards helping to overcome the disaster
Horse ownership in Japan consists of those registered as individuals, corporations, associations (a group of between three and 10 members who have joint ownership) and racing clubs, which are groups ranging from several dozen to several hundred people who have an investment in a horse, but do not

have ownership of it. There are also cases of those who are registered as individuals sharing ownership for risk hedges and, of course, people residing outside Japan can also become owners with the JRA if they meet the necessary requirements.

It can certainly be said that the current strength of the yen is a big plus for the major breeders that are continuing to proactively buy horses abroad
What are the objectives of the JRA? Essentially, betting in Japan is illegal, but in order to develop horseracing and support horse breeding, the JRA has been granted special permission. To this end, we hope to provide an exciting day out for punters by holding inviting race meetings, and in the future look towards developing horseracing as something that, whilst being steeped in history and tradition, is also a sporting event with an international flavour. What are the JRA’s responsibilities? It owns the many training centres and research areas…? In addition to management of its racecourses, holding race meetings and betting sales, the JRA also has jurisdiction over registration, licensing and approval of owners, trainers and jockeys. The JRA is also responsible for a wide variety of areas such breeding and training, managing its centres, and veterinary research. The JRA seems very proactive in its areas of research? In order to preserve good health and prevent disorders in racehorses, the JRA Equine Research Institute (ERI), which was founded in 1959, is engaged in various research activities including equine exercise physiology, veterinary clinical medicine, racetracks and its physical characteristics, rehabilitation methods for injured racehorses, and research on making diagnosis, providing
How does the funding work for Japanese racing? The JRA runs its ten racecourses and facilities, holds race meetings, and is in charge of betting sales, which make up the bulk of its income. With pari-mutuel betting sales, the JRA deducts a set amount from the betting turnover to cover running costs and just over 10 per cent of this is also paid to the government to be set aside for areas such as livestock promotion and social welfare.
treatment and preventing equine infectious diseases. The ERI conducts research on training methods for rearing periods, as well as on nutrition and reproduction. The organisation is comprised of the Sports Science Research Centre, the Rehabilitation Research Centre, Epizootic Research Centre and, as an affiliated institution, the Hidaka Training and Research Centre. And the JRA buys a number of yearlings each year? The JRA rears racehorses, studies rearing methods and develops rearing technology at the Hidaka and Miyazaki training and research centres in Japan. To this end, each year the JRA purchases approximately 80 yearlings (several are also born at our research centres). In the spring after the yearlings reach the age of two, they are sold on at the JRA Breeze-Up Sale. Do all yearlings from the studs go to the sales? How else do owners get involved? Aside from sales, some horses in Japan are also purchased in deals directly between the breeder and customer. At the JRA, we try to promote the sales as a way of selling the horses because their method is fair and transparent, so we can be sure that the horses are sold at a reasonable price. Incidentally, in Japan there are sales for foals, yearlings and tw0-year-olds. The numbers of foals being bred at present is down, is that a good or bad development? It is difficult to say one way or the other. In the UK racing world it seems to be perceived as being a problem, but in Japan, there are those that think that as long as there is not a shortage of competing racehorses (or indeed of racing events to support them), then it is not necessarily an issue. However, if the number of foals being bred were to drop significantly, then that would be different.
At present it has been described almost as a “perfect storm” for Japanese interests to buy horses / mares abroad due to the worldwide recession and the strength of the Japanese currency. Is that accurate? Not all breeders are necessarily benefitting from the recession, but it can certainly be said that the current strength of the yen is a big plus for the major breeders who are continuing to proactively buy horses abroad. By introducing many high quality foreign racehorses into Japan, we hope to improve the quality of the racehorses in the future. Would the JRA consider pressing for more of the Japanese graded races to become open to international runners? All of the JRA’s graded Flat races are already open to international runners. However it is a reality that, due to the cost of transporting racehorses to Japan, they are only being sent to some of the international races. Does Japanese racing welcome more international runners? In order to raise the quality of Japanese racing and provide the most thrilling experience to our customers as possible, we hope that many top-class international runners will compete, especially in the Japan Autumn International races such as the Japan Cup. At present, in addition to prize-money, if a winner of one of a selected leading foreign races finishes in the top three of one of the Japan Autumn International races, we also offer a generous bonus which we hope makes the Japan Autumn International one of the most attractive events for the world’s leading racehorses. The JRA seems to be striving to continue to improve the quality of horseracing in Japan – how important is that? Surely, a race is a race to bet on? I think regardless of the sport, its success and status is measured not only by how well it does at home, but also by its international success. To this end, when Japanese horses compete with foreign horses, and especially when the horses achieve good results, I believe that it makes a valuable contribution to the development of Japanese horseracing. As a result, I hope that even more fans will come to the races, and betting sales will as a result increase. This was part of the reason for us creating the Japan Cup in 1981.

training great in his own right most known for his handling of Deep Impact. Stints in England with Sir Michael Stoute and in America with Neil Drysdale soon followed, and Ikee junior still has great respect for the Newmarket handler. “I think there’s something special about Sir Michael. His attention to detail and the plans and ideas he has in his head for what to do with his horses really impress me. He’s definitely someone I admire,” he says, continuing: “In America, the tracks and training are more similar to what we have here in Japan, so that was a good experience too.” The trainer’s day begins soon after 3am and before the horses get to do their work, the
festooned with trophies and pictures and, as is the tradition in Japan, flowers in pots and baskets with congratulatory messages attached to them. The room itself is testimony to the feats of a man who’s just in his ninth year of holding a trainer’s licence. Born on January 13, 1969, just two months before another legend of the Japanese turf, Yutaka Take, his early memories of horseracing are of his father’s days as a jockey. “It all started with my father who became a jockey at the age of 18. He was at school and had already landed a job in a restaurant in Osaka when his teacher advised him to try one more option, that being the life of a jockey. He was small and tough, but had never touched a horse in his life. I can honestly say that if it wasn’t for that teacher, we wouldn’t be here today,” reminisces Ikee. But here we very definitely are, and after attending a stable management course at the JRA School of Horseracing in 1993, Ikee went on to become assistant trainer to Kuniichi Asami and later to his own father, Yasuo, who, after retiring from the saddle, was a
staff of 15, including three assistant trainers, meet with the boss to check the horses over and assign riders their work. There is no retained jockey at the stable, but a whole host of big-name jockeys in Japan, as well as those from overseas, would never give up a chance to get the leg up on a horse trained by Ikee. He’s always willing to put a foreign jockey up if they are in Japan. “They always do a good job, and I like returning some of the goodwill that I received when I was overseas,” he says. Asked about his favourite jockeys, and Christophe Soumillon is the first name mentioned. Steve Cauthen is one of his all time greats, and, of course, here in Japan the man he practically grew up with, Yutaka Take, gets special
I know we always say it in Japan, but I would love to win the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe with a horse by Deep Impact. It was a real blow when Deep Impact lost the race and was later disqualified. To make up for that would be great
would like to see, there are a few things in his mind. “Racing in other countries seems to have a bit more style to it, whereas here in Japan there are too many people in cramped spaces, although with what I’m going to go on to say, I don’t think we can have fewer people around,” he says. “As you know, the betting turnover has suffered quite a bit since its peak, and that’s bad news for everyone involved. JRA races cannot be held at night by law, so I think that should be changed, so we can have more racing and more turnover. “Also, regarding stables, we are limited to 28 boxes at our yards, and even though I have around 60 horses altogether, it’s impossible to expand from the current 28 limit.”
mention. “We went to the same junior high school and belonged to the same riding club, but I guess he was a bit better than me!” Ikee grins. His goal in training racehorses is to know what the horse is capable of doing and to find a way of fitting its training patterns to its actual abilities, keeping the horse in its own comfort zones, and not pushing it too hard and risking injury. His biggest satisfaction is training a winner of any race. His biggest disappointment is not getting a result. “Of course, every week there are disappointments in racing, but there’s no greater satisfaction than training a winner. My first Group 1 win with Dream Journey in 2006 was special. And I’ve been so lucky this year, winning the 2,000 Guineas, the Derbya and the St Leger with Orfevre; the Derby being a race I’ve dreamed of winning since I was a boy,” he smiles. Moving on to discuss his stable star, I asked him what made Orfevre special. “He’s nothing to look at really. A small horse, about ten kilos heavier than Deep Impact, but it’s his closing finish that really makes him stand out. He took a couple of bumps in the Derby, but was still able to go on and win impressively.” As for changes to Japanese racing that he
If horses are not currently kept at a trainer’s stable in Japan, they are moved to farms or pre-training farms. It’s easy to see why the Derby-winning trainer would like a few more boxes, with 12 horses (two-yearolds and three-year-olds) by the great Deep Impact under his watch. He’s certainly expecting more to come from a horse called Tosen Reve. Since he had his first winner with his first runner, Sonic Surpass in March 2004, Ikee has produced an astonishing list of accomplishments. At the time of writing, his number of career wins stands at 260 and through 2011 his current tally is 32 wins at a 15.2 per cent strike rate, with 41.4 per cent of his runners finishing in the placings.

yasutoshi ikee In 2006 and 2010, he had the best winning percentage of any trainer in Japan, and in 2008 topped the trainers’ rankings with wins and prize-money: 51 wins and ¥861 million (£6.5 million pounds) in prize-money. What’s more, Dad finished second that year. Yasutoshi is the youngest trainer ever to win a trainers’ title and the Japan Derby, something he’s particularly proud of. He has had five Group 1 wins to date, and since 2006 has only once failed to finish in the top five in the trainers’ table in western Japan, known as the Kansai region. So what’s left to achieve? “I know we always say it in Japan, but I would love to win the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe with a horse by Deep Impact. It was a real blow when Deep Impact lost the race and was later disqualified. To make up for that would be great. I know there are other races like the King George, but for some reason, here in Japan, the Arc’s the one,” he explains. I inquire about the influence his father has had on him, and he quickly bounces the question back and says, “How many different influences has your father had on you?” But when I finally narrow it down, he says: “I think it’s all of my father’s words of wisdom along the way. One of his expressions is ‘keiba wa kibishii’, which can be loosely translated as ‘it’s tough out there in the world of horseracing!’ “And it’s true. We never know what might happen. I also think it’s good that I’ve trained some of the progeny of the great horses my father trained. Dream Journey is a son of Stay Gold, and the broodmare’s sire was Mejiro McQueen, both of whom were trained by my father. “Orfevre is a full brother to Dream Journey, so it’s like having our own family tree of fantastic horses. I also got great satisfaction from preparing my father’s horses when they were campaigned overseas, and I’ll always be grateful to him for putting his trust in me. I learned a lot from this.” Travelling is also a big part of the trainer’s life with regular trips to the farms in Hokkaido and, closer to home, weekly trips to the pre-training farms. He will often leave his assistants to take care of things at the nearby racetracks, while he heads off to saddle runners further afield. With visits to Keeneland and Longchamp also in his diary, does the man ever relax? “Well, I’ve never bothered to play golf, but
I do like to spend time with my wife and son, who’s just turned one. “Just being at home, taking it easy, having a nice meal and watching TV, these are the things I do when I’m not on the job.” It’s easy to see how in a couple of decades there could easily be another addition to the
Ikee training racing dynasty. In the meantime I glance around the room thinking the current ruler will probably need a few more trophy cabinets in which to display the cups he will be winning in the future and the awards he deserves for being one of Japan’s top trainers.

Dealing with the aftermath F “
Naohiro Goda meets Fumio Hakamada, manager of Shadai Farm’s training centre at Sendai, a city which bore the brunt of the earthquake and tsunami on March 11
I found out later that the train station where I had been just 30 minutes earlier, as well as the spot where I had parked 15 minutes later, were both washed out
“Most of the horses were in their boxes and some were on the walker,” he remembers.. “While I found a couple of inclined barns caused by the dislocation of the ground, a landslide behind one barn, a lot of cracks on track surface and the interior of office was thoroughly messy, not one horse nor person had been hurt, which I thought was a miracle. “The coast area was hit by the tsunami and I found out later that the train station where I had been just 30 minutes earlier, as well as the spot where I had parked 15 minutes later, were both washed out. “When I looked over the coast area from the office, which is built on the top of hill, I saw the Interstate No.6 was cut in pieces, lots of cars were turned over, and the rice fields were thoroughly submerged by sea water. “I walked down to the starting point of the uphill track, which is the lowest point at the training centre, and I was shocked to see that the tsunami had got to there. Among the debris I saw many houses and cars, which were swept away from the coast area. “Telephone lines were down and my phone did not work, although I kept trying to send a short mail from my mobile and found the transmission completed
umio Hakamada, 50, manager at Shadai Farm’s Yamamoto Training Center, near Sendai City, was driving his car at 2:46pm on March 11. It is routine for Hakamada to work at the training center from Monday through Friday and then go racing at the weekend to meet with the owners and trainers. He was on the way back from the train station, having bought a ticket for his journey on Sunday. You seldom feel an earthquake when you are driving your car because the cars jolt in the same direction as the earth, however, Hakamada recognised it easily. According to him, his car sprang and it was like “driving on a trampoline”. “The radio started immediately to give a warning of the tsunami, suggesting to move toward a higher place, however, it was impossible to keep driving,” says Hakamada. “I parked my car at the shoulder of the road, which is only two kilometers away from the sea, and stayed there for ten minutes. Then, as the shaking stopped and I started to drive again, I realised something unusual happened, finding lots of upheavals and caveins on the road and lots of collapsed houses beside the road.” On March 11, Japan experienced its greatest earthquake in 1,000 years, with a magnitude of 9.0, which claimed more than 15,000 precious lives. Nearly 5,000 people are still missing. Hakamada drove back to the Yamamoto Training Center, where 140 horses are trained and 100 staff work, a journey which he could only undertake at 15mph. On getting to the centre, he felt relieved to find no horse and no member of staff had been hurt.
just once in 50 attempts. “Before long, some of the staff got their cell phones working, and I used them to communicate with Shadai Farm in Hokkaido, our Tokyo office and our Kyoto office”. As there had been a few small earthquakes during the second half of 2010, Hakamada had supposed the possibility that the training centre might be in need of emergency equipment and organised a contract with the biggest supplier of rental equipment in the area that December. His foresight and that contract helped saved the lives of the 140 horses at Yamamoto Training Center. “Both the water and electricity supplies were down. As we supply the horses with water pumped up from wells, we urgently needed to secure the electricity in order to restore the water supply system to the barns,” he explains. “I could not get to speak with the supplier of the rental equipment, but I could communicate with them through our Kyoto office and found that there were two
Horseracing facilities and breeding areas, also showing Sendai City and the earthquake epicentre Breeding regions are located from the island of Hokkaido north to the island of Kyushu in the south. Traditional breeding areas include Tokachi, Hidaka and Iburi in Hokkaido and Aomori, Iwate, Miyagi, Fukushima, Tochigi, Chiba, Miyazaki and Kagoshima prefectures throughout the rest of Japan. As of 2008, there were 1,121 stud farms with broodmares stabled. The Hidaka area of Hokkaido is home to the most at 901
(80%). If the Tokachi and Iburi areas are included, Hokkaido's total comes to 990, which accounts for some 88.3% of the nationwide total. Breeding is expanding in Hokkaido, which has a cool, dry climate and plenty of space, while the industry has been shrinking in areas near tracks and in warm, humid Kyushu. The emphasis in these areas has turned to training.

generators available for rent. Their shop is only 15 minutes away from Yamamoto Training Center by car, but it took 90 minutes to get there on March 11. I went and returned twice to secure two generators and it was after midnight when the water supply to the barns was fully restored. “We rented another larger generator from the same supplier three days later, which could activate the walker at the centre. “While we had enough stock of hay, oats and other feed for the 140 horses for two months, we did not have so much stock of foods for humans. “As we used propane from gas cylinders as the fuel in the kitchen; we could boil water and cook rice, and we went a little hungry with just rice balls and miso soup without any ingredients for two days. There was a large snow fall on March 12 and we had a very tough night without heating, left in darkness, and we were exhausted, while frightening frequent aftershocks were still taking place. “On March 14 our rice stock ran out, but a horse lorry sent from Shadai Farm arrived at the centre full of necessities, such as rice, breads, meats, vegetables, and cell phones. We felt we were saved then.” As Hakamada realised the water supply and electricity supply would not resume soon and the leakage of radioactivity from the nuclear power plants in Fukushima had become a big issue, Hakamada decided to evacuate the centre and four days after the quake he began to to relocate horses and staff on March 15. “It was very difficult to arrange transport as there were a few lorries available, due to the shortage of petrol. And I needed to work
hard to find 140 boxes – the horses had to be boarded where there were good training facilities and accommodation for the staff.” Some horses moved to Shadai Farm and Oiwake Farm in Hokkaido, some horses were shipped to the Seguchi Training Center, to Daito Farm, to Fujisawa Stable’s Miho Branch in Ibaragi Prefecture, while some moved to Greenwood Training Center and Ujitahara Stable in Shiga Prefecture.” The relocation was completed by March 19, eight days after the earthquake, and Hakamada himself moved to Fujisawa Stable’s Miho Branch on March 20. “On the day I arrived at Fujisawa Stable’s Miho Branch, I could take a bath for the first time since the earthquake and enjoy a glass of cold beer! And once I stood on the scales, I found I had lost 12lbs in nine days.”
The wonderful performance in the Group 1 Dubai World Cup by Victoire Pisa, who was bred by Shadai Farm and spent time at Yamamoto Training Centre, gave huge encouragement to Hakamada and the staff at Yamamoto Training Centre. But there was another victory which delighted Hakamada highly. “Omega Sky Tree, a three-year-old colt who was trained at Yamamoto but left just before the earthquake, won a maiden on March 19 at Hanshin. That was the first win for us after the catastrophe – his victory raised my spirits and brought me positive energy.” On the day he left Yamamoto Training Centre, Hakamada thought that he might not ever be able to return there again. However, as both the water supply and

The JRHA Select Sale, the premier market for thoroughbreds bred in Japan, was held at Hokkaido on July 11 and 12, four months after the earthquake. As business in almost all industries slowed down after the disaster, the anticipation for the market was very negative. The officials at JRHA presumed in advance that the gross sale would decline by at least 15 per cent, a realistic prediction for all involved in the racing and breeding industry in Japan. However, the prediction was wrong. All

electricity supply at Sendai area resumed by the end of March, and the Tohoku Expressway, which runs through the north part of Japan from Tokyo to Aomori, was reopened on April 10, Hakamada determined he should come back at Yamamoto with horses. The works to reconstruct the facilities at Yamamoto Training Centre started. Hakamada and horses returned from Fujisawa Stable’s Miho Branch to Yamamoto Training Centre on May 9, nearly two months after the earthquake.
the yardsticks – the aggregate, average price, median price, and clearance rate – at both the yearling session and foal session bettered the figures of previous year. Moreover, the clearance rate at the yearling session was the best ever, while there was an all-time record price for a yearling in Japan. Nobutaka Tada, the Tokyo-based bloodstock agent, paid ¥360,000,000 to buy Lot 51, a filly by Deep Impact out of Air Groove. Many after the sale, including well-known economists, tried to analyse and give logical explanations as why there was a recordbreaking market, although there was one common understanding that the wealthy people are wealthy even during the recession and even after such terrible calamity. “I did not expect such a booming market at all,” said Hakamada. “It was impossible to forecast the future market under such extraordinary circumstances. “The JRHA Select Sale is the market where the cream of Japanese-bred thoroughbreds are offered. I was impressed to see that owners did not lose any of their passion to invest in nice horses, and I am resolved to keep working hard to provide for these owners, who love horses and horseracing.” On the other hand, Hakamada is worried about betting turnover, which declined significantly after the earthquake. The total wagered on ten Graded 1 stakes at JRA meetings since March 11 was 14.1 per cent down on the previous year. “It is serious. Owners are apprehensive for the prize-money in 2012. Many of them understand the cut down of price-money is inevitable, and the matter is how much it is decreased.”

The Whyte stuff
Paul Haigh meets Douglas Whyte, who has been Hong Kong champion jockey for the last consecutive 11 years
n those not very rare occasions when racing fans discuss the identity of the best jockey in the world, they usually run through the standard European, North American and Australian suspects then stall and start repeating themselves. The one they might kick themselves for missing is Douglas Whyte. It was Mick Kinane who first pointed out that every jockey who does a stint in Hong Kong returns to his homeland a better jockey – sometimes a much better jockey – than he left. The reason isn’t complicated. Hong Kong racing is fiercely competitive, made up mostly of handicaps of the tightest kind in which the skill of the rider is secondary only to the importance of the draw in importance in determining outcomes. Forget the British theory that in most races horses would finish in much the same order regardless of who
I just feel this is my livelihood and it’s about running a tight ship. I believe in doing everything professionally and I believe the way to succeed is through work and dedication in every aspect of the job
rode them. That just isn’t true in Hong Kong. Horses also run much closer together on the fairly tight Sha Tin and ultra-tight Happy Valley tracks, which makes great demands on jockeys’ courage as well as skill. Judgement of pace is also crucial because although no race is ever run at a crawl, some may go just a half second too slow for their class and a top rider has to be able to notice that. Strength and balance in a finish are imperative or a jockey soon loses the respect of the people who count. Every race is pored over microscopically by millions so any inadequacy is very soon exposed. It follows that any rider who wins the Hong Kong championship must be one of pretty unusual talent. Any jockey who dominates must be a phenomenon. Douglas Whyte has been champion jockey
of Hong Kong for every one of the last 11 years. Up to the time of writing (the figure will be out of date by the time you read this) he had won 1,325 races, more than twice as many as any other in Hong Kong racing history. Perhaps even more significant is the fact that his victory on Entrapment on National Day, October 1, took the career earnings of his mounts in Hong Kong through the HK$1 billion barrier. That’s around £80 million or $130 million. Even allowing for the fact that Hong Kong prize-money is consistently by far the highest per event anywhere in the world these are extraordinary figures in a jurisdiction in which there are just two meetings and fewer than 20 races a week in a season that lasts from mid-September to mid-July.
Whyte has nominated the Tony Millard-trained Ambitious Dragon as the best horse he has ever ridden
The 40-year-old South African, tall for a jockey but as lean as the clichéd whip, with sharp features which smile often but you wouldn’t really want to see registering strong disapproval, doesn’t mind when you put it to him that he’s a businessman as much as he’s an athlete. “I accept that,” he says. “In Hong Kong you have to be a businessman if you’re a jockey because you have to look after yourself. You don’t have anybody to do your rides for you. You don’t really have anybody to form your opinions of horses for you. You don’t have anybody else to fall back on. How well you do, and what rides you get, largely reflects the time and effort you bother to put in.” And the contacts you build and amount of respect you’re able to accumulate, of course. “Looking at it from the outside,” he continues, “it must look as though I’m pretty controlling and as though I’ve got strings I can pull whenever I want to. But when people (jockeys) come here and come up against me they soon see that’s just the way to run your business here. I just feel this is my livelihood and it’s about running a tight ship. I believe in doing everything professionally and I believe the way to succeed is through work and dedication in every aspect of the job.” That dedication used to involve many hours each day studying form, but less so these days, and that’s not just because so many owners and trainers will seek Whyte’s services and hope he’s free if they have a horse that’s strongly fancied. “I used to spend a lot of time on form,” he says, “but much less now simply because the handicapping has become so tight and efficient here in the last four or five years there’s really not much point in it. Now I’ve found it’s less a matter of scouting around looking for horses who’ve somehow slipped by the handicapper, more a matter of seeing which horses are fit and assessing their condition from their work. I’ve found that’s more important than anything you’ll find on paper.” Unlike most jockeys Whyte didn’t arrive in Hong Kong by design, more by happy accident. “I was riding in South Africa for David Payne and everything was going very well and happily. Then I got an invitation to ride in Singapore for a special weekend and I won five races, including the Lion City Cup. Robin Parke, who was then racing editor of the South China Morning Post was there and he asked me, ‘Have you ever thought of Hong Kong?’
douglas whyte “I said I hadn’t but then I came back a year later and had another good weekend and then I got on the South African champion London News and we came over and won the Audemars Piguet Queen Elizabeth II Cup. Robin said: ‘Have you put your application in yet?’ So this time I did. Two or three weeks later he called me and said: ‘You got a slot’.” No apologies for the next sentence except that sometimes you just can’t resist the easy lobs. The rest is racing history. “That was 13 years ago,” he says. “I had my first rides for David Hayes and my first winner, Fireball, for Wong Teng Ping. I was here for three months. I liked it, and finished with about 26 or 27 winners. The season after that I came for my first full season and finished second to Basil Marcus. And after that...” After that he was champion and has been ever since. Only once indeed has his supremacy been seriously challenged and that was in 2009/10 when he trailed his six years younger Australian arch rival Brett Prebble, who had followed him home in the table for each of the last four years, by around a dozen winners with less than a month to go. When Prebble rode a six-timer at Happy Valley in late June it looked as though the crown was finally going to be passed
on, but in one of the most thrilling battles between great jockeys ever (even CNN got excited about it) Whyte showed all his icy determination to get up and win by 100 winners to 99 at the final meeting of the season, an extraordinary achievement which understandably gave him more pleasure than any of his other nine titles. But the really remarkable thing was that no one was particularly surprised. It’s almost a given now in Hong Kong. Laws may change, administrators may change, earthquakes and tsunamis may trouble the Orient, but Whyte will still be champion jockey of Hong Kong. In 2010 he filled in the last remaining
gap in his Hong Kong CV when winning the coveted Mercedes-Benz Hong Kong Derby on Super Satin. October 1 this year was yet another milestone, but not one of which he was
Douglas Whyte: despite having ridden over 1,300 winners in Hong Kong still retains his drive and passion for the sport
Happy Valley: the tight bends make demands on “jockeys’ courage as well as skill” – in Hong Kong there is no hiding place for anyone who is not good enough
Hong Kong isn’t a place to stay if you haven’t got that eagerness and determination, because this is such a competitive place you can’t just hover
middle-distance champion made absolute mincemeat of a group of top-class specialist 7f and 8f horses over 1400m (7f). Afterwards Whyte had no hesitation in calling Ambitious Dragon “the best horse I’ve ever ridden”. Now, a few weeks later, with plenty of time to backtrack on the superlative, he has no desire to do so, and the excitement returns to his voice when he mentions him. “I think he is the best,” he confirms. “He’s a phenomenal horse. He’s got this turn-off mode that means you can get him to relax anywhere in the field, but then when you switch him on he just takes you there himself. Other horses, even very good ones, you have to work with and angle to find the line. Not him.” Cynics might think this unqualified praise owes much to his determination to keep the ride if possible when Guyon returns. But there’s no doubting his sincerity. Whyte talks about him the way a pilot might talk about the perfect plane. Given the exceptional range of skills he has acquired during his reign in Hong Kong, and the fact that he’s probably got at least ten years of almost mistake-free riding left in him, it’s perhaps surprising that he’s not been approached to ride as stable jockey elsewhere. Perhaps the relative comfort of two meetings a week and no travelling is something other jurisdictions can’t match.
immediately conscious. “I didn’t know about the HK$1 billion mark until people told me about it,” he says without any particular emphasis. “People think I’m not a man of my word when I say that sort of thing isn’t what drives me. For me that’s not really a goal or a highlight. For me it’s the winning side that drives me. “I remember my first winner like I remember my first ride, but honestly I don’t think that much about the money. Of course it’s nice to be able to pull out your credit card for your family or for yourself, but that is definitely not the motivation. Winning, that’s what drives me on.” Of much more significance to him was the memorable double that day on Ambitious Dragon and Entrapment. Entrapment had been off the course for over a year with a mystery complaint similar to stringhalt but so rare the vets hadn’t even got a name for it. Before the comeback, in which he defeated Sacred Kingdom, Whyte had said the son of Halo Homewrecker “would have to be a really great champion to retain his unbeaten record after so long off the track.” Entrapment now looks sure to be one of the prime defenders of Hong Kong’s monopoly of the Hong Kong Sprint at the Cathay Pacific Hong Kong International meeting on December 11. Whyte’s victory on Ambitious Dragon, the horse on whom he had already won this year’s Audemars Piguet Queen Elizabeth II Cup after André Fabre had insisted his regular rider Maxime Guyon should honour his contractual obligations in France, was even more amazing. Sent out by his trainer Tony Millard for a start to his new campaign, nowhere near match fit, with December 11 and the Hong Kong Cup itself as his destination, the local
“But,” he says, “I would consider leaving Hong Kong if I was offered a really big challenge elsewhere. I love it here and my wife Nikki and children Sheikera and Ethan are very happy here too. But the answer is yes” (a response to mention of the word Ballydoyle) “those sort of jobs have crossed my mind. For me I must have challenges, and jobs like that would certainly provide them. “But I’m not being arrogant when I say I think they’d have to approach me first. It’s not because I rate myself so highly or anything. It’s just that I was taught when I was very young that if something’s good and it works, you don’t change it without very good reason. I’m loving racing here. My family’s loving being here. I’m riding top horses for top trainers, and I’m still hungry. “Hong Kong isn’t a place to stay if you haven’t got that eagerness and determination, because this is such a competitive place you can’t just hover. You have to keep driving ahead. You know that when you’re champion here you’re in the limelight, and people are expecting you to produce.” Sounds like bad news for any jockeys hoping to inherit the Whyte crown. They may have to wait until time takes its inevitable toll – 2020 or 2025? - and the Whyte family withdraws to enjoy the pleasures of their farm in Tuscany on a more permanent basis than the breadwinner’s present business permits.

Leading Sydney trainer Chris Waller talks to Darryl Sherer about moving from New Zealand to train in Australia and buying horses in England
n a relatively short space of time, Chris Waller has become something of a phenomenon. Racing in Australia has always had its major names among the training ranks. Many have become household names. Mention “Bart” and it’s a fair bet that most people will reply “Cummings”. In Sydney the name most know is Smith, the legendary T.J. winning the Sydney training premiership for an unprecedented 33 years in succession. And, while his daughter Gai established her own little run of titles, much to the chagrin of Sydneysiders, the current holder is a New Zealander. Not that there is any bitterness for, in the grand tradition of Australian’s claiming success as their own, Waller is now very much considered “Australian”, or “Sydney”, to be more precise. The Rosehill-based Kiwi horseman became the first trainer to win the prestigious Bart Cummings Medal for overall excellence at the recent NSW Racehorse Owners Association’s annual night of champions. His trademark white bridles and black and white check colours are now instantly recognisable of Sydney racetracks and, in a town that prides itself on being hard to conquer, Waller’s accension to the throne has been smooth and accepted. Like so many things in racing, the career of Chris Waller owes itself to an element of chance. Having begun his time in the industry with Foxtonbased trainer Paddy Busuttin, Waller rose to become travelling foreman and brought Castletown to Australia for
the 1992 Melbourne Cup. The horse ran third and the experience whetted Waller’ appetite. Returning to New Zealand and setting up on his own when Busuttin left to train in Singapore, Waller made a trip to Sydney in 1998 with just one horse. Party Belle was her name and the rest, as the well worn cliche goes, is history. Waller continued to train at Foxton and make regular visits to Sydney. He kept winning races and soon came to the notice of owners, so much so that he made the permanent move to Sydney in to establish a stable at Rosehill. He had four horses. Five seasons
later and with a champion trainer’s title to his name there are more than 100 horses in work. And he still keeps winning. Waller’s rise to the top of the training tree in Sydney has been meteoric. On Golden Slipper day in 2007, the biggest day of racing Chris Waller (left)
chris waller in Sydney, Waller showed his hand when Mr Ubiquitous and Double Dare both won stakes races. “That was actually my first city double, let alone stakes double,” Waller explains, adding meaningfully, “and that was huge for me.” In the autumn of 2008 Waller prepared his first Group 1 winner when Triple Honour rocketed to victory in the Doncaster Handicap. That breakthrough win followed a nose second to star galloper Weekend Hussler in the Randwick Guineas. Since then Waller has won many Group 1 races, including the 2010 Doncaster Handicap with Rangirangdoo, the 2010 George Ryder Stakes and Manikato Stakes with Danleigh, the 2010 Doomben Cup with Metal Bender and the TJ Smith Stakes with Pressday. Meanwhile, Waller was selected as the trainer for the Ingham family after selling their bloodstock interests to Sheikh Mohammed. When deciding to have the famous all cerise colours back racing, it was Waller to whom they turned. In 2011, Waller trained Rangirangdoo to win the George Ryder Stakes, Danleigh, the 2011 Chipping Norton Stakes, My Kingdom of Fife took the 2011 Queen Elizabeth Stakes and Stand To Gain was victorious in the Sydney Cup.
Having a horse in training in the city is a costly exercise, up to A$35,000 a year, but we are here to make it profitable. The infrastructure we have in place now means we have become quite labour intensive in order to look after people’s investments
The victories of My Kingdom Of Fife and Stand To Gain are a good example of Waller’s approach. Four years ago he ventured to Newmarket in company with vet Tim Roberts to attend the Tattersalls Autumn Horses In Training Sale at Newmarket. Since then he has made regular visits and his stable now lists horses with the GB, Ire, USA and Fr suffix with regularity. As ever, the hallmark is the rate of improvement the horses have made under his care. My Kingdom Of Fife, who was bred by the Queen, and Stand To Gain, who was formerly trained in France by David Smaga, have progressed from good handicappers in England to become Group 1 winners in Australia. The automatic assumption that racing in Australia is inferior to Britain is misguided. Waller has made an artform out of improving horses and none of it is belongs to chance. His approach to training is meticulous and businesslike. “Having a horse in training in the city is a costly exercise, up to A$35,000 a year, but we are here to make it profitable.” he explains. “The infrastructure we have in place now means we have become quite labour intensive in order to look after people’s investments. We have a foreperson for each 20-horse block and they have six staff working under them as well as track riders. “But I believe with this infrastructure we can continue to grow without losing the quality and hands-on approach that we have become accustomed to. Like anything, you are only as good as the staff you build up around you.
My Kingdom Of Fife
“Seasons 10/11 were by our best by far, but it has been the infrastructure put in place leading up to those years that have proved crucial.” At the end of the 10/11 racing season Waller won both the Sydney and NSW premierships with 117 Metropolitan winners. The significance of that feat comes into sharp focus when realising that he became just the fifth trainer to prepare 100 metropolitan winners in a Sydney season. Only Tommy Smith, Brian Mayfield-Smith, Gai Waterhouse and John Hawkes had previously achieved the feat. “I won’t touch on it too much because I get pretty emotional with things like that, but it obviously means a helluva a lot to me,” says the trainer. “There’s no person more prouder than me to be training in Sydney.” Waller is also expanding and is looking at sending more horses to race in Brisbane. “This year we’re going to spread our horses around more,” he adds. “Last season we won the Sydney premiership and normally we have all our ammunition here. But not any more. I’ve got 100 horses in work and from now on I’ll be spreading them around more in other places like Brisbane.”
I really enjoy working with European horses. So far we’ve had good success with our methods and hopefully we have more winners in the pipeline
Melbourne is also a target. Waller has a small team of horses in the southern state for the valuable Spring Carnival and struck on Caulfield Cup day when the English import Foreteller, a Juddmonte-bred son of Dansili and Prophecy, stormed home to win the David Jones Coongy Handicap (G3) over a mile and a quarter. The horse had been boguht the previous autumn by Waller at Tattersalls for 100,000gns. “Foreteller’s a talented horse and he is getting better all the time,” smiles Waller. Group success with English-bred horses is nothing new to Waller who landed a Group 1 double when Kingdom Of Fife won the Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Randwick and then Stand To Gain came home clear in the Group 1 Sydney Cup over two-miles. Kingdon Of Fife was a 60,000gns purchase, while Stand To Gain, a son of Hawk Wing, was purchased by Waller at the 2009 Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale for 105,000gns. By the time this is published Waller will have been back to Newmarket and may well have bought again. In conjunction with vet Tim Roberts, Waller works with New Zealand agent Guy Mulcaster. The level of success that the team has enjoyed hints at far more than just better than average luck. As ever, Waller is modest. “The others the brains behind it,” he says, referring to Mulcaster and Roberts. I’m just the one putting my finances on the line. We’ve had some luck, for sure, but it has worked and we will continue to target horses out of England.” he says. “It’s been terrific to be able to buy some Group 1 winners and I’d like to think we are not done with yet. “I really enjoy working with European
horses. So far we’ve had good success with our methods and hopefully we have more winners in the pipeline.” Mulcaster spoke to www.gravelhouse. com in August, outlining the reasoning and logistics regarding buying in Europe. “The cost is not cheap to airfreight the horses back to Australia being close to AU$20,000 when quarantine, inoculations and road transport are included,” said Mulcaster, who needs to source Cup horses in Europe due to the fact that Australian breeders, despite the major races in the country being middle-distance and further in nature, have been producing mainly for speed and precocity. “But those costs are offset by the fact the horses arrive in Australia and are able to commence training then hopefully racing within five months. This is a lot quicker than the purchase of a yearling.” Mulcaster went on to explain that: “The horses are bought with middle-distance Saturday races in mind where the prizemoney is A$70,000 to A$100,000 per race. “The biggest success story has been Hawk Island recording ten Australian wins and prize-money in excess of AU$650,000.” Brett Bradley is a part-owner of Foreteller. “I’ve had a few horses with Chris Waller for a few years now,” explains Bradley. “Chris heads over to the UK every year and every year I put my hand up for one. We got Foreteller that way and it’s fantastic.” By the incredibly high standards he has set, the beginning to the 2011/12 season has been modest by Waller’s standards. “If I went four meetings through the season without a winner no one takes any notice,’’ he says matter of factly. “At the start of the season some do notice, we did win the premiership last season, but we’ve been in this situation before. “It was hard in the early days when we didn’t have a runner in town. “It was hard going to Kembla Grange with four runners and you don’t win a race. The staff getting on the float, doing hard yards and not getting much for it. “But we are good sportsmen, know what is going on, we’ll kick back pretty quick. We’ll double check everything, make sure we are not doing anything wrong. “We’ll work horses a bit harder to make sure they up to the mark.”
Equine travel must be taken with care
War Pass’s death last December on his return from shuttle duty was a reminder not to take the international movement of horses too lightly
e take transporting of horses pretty much for granted these days. There are racehorses going racing everyday, riding horses are taken off for riding, broodmares are shipped for covering and stallions are sent around the world in order to spread their genetic influence. As horsemen we obviously realise that long haul flights are little more of a logistical difficulty, but as horses are taken around the world for racing or for stud duty with everincreasing frequency it is no longer regarded as a novelty. It is tempting to believe that moving horses around the world is without risk. Unfortunately the death of the US stallion War Pass after he travelled from shuttle duties in Australia back to his base in Kentucky last December revealed the dangers involved in moving horses. Not only is there possible risk of injury, there are risks that the horse can pick up shipping fever.
War Pass’s journey to the US from Australia
War Pass left Widden Stud, New South Wales first thing in the morning December 18, 2010 arriving in Sydney at lunchtime ahead of his journey to Kentucky. The other stallions gathering for the flight included More Than Ready, Henrythenavigator, Big Brown, Good Journey, Tale of The Cat, Ready’s Image, and All American. All the horses left for the airport that afternoon, but due to weather and crew problems returned to their stables that evening. The journey to the US began a day late, loading onto the flight at 8.30am,
departing at 10.30am. The plane arrived in Hong Kong just before 4pm, leaving the principality an hour and a half later, getting to Anchorage the next morning. Another hour later the stallions shipped to Los Angeles, arriving at 5.30pm on Tuesday, December 21. In all, the journey took around two days to complete. The group arrived at the quarantine at 6.30pm on Tuesday, December 21 and War Pass received immediate veterinary treatment after arrival due to a high temperature; the treatment was repeated on Wednesday, December 22 and Thursday 23. War Pass left quarantine that day and arrived at Lane’s End that evening. The horse was reported to be perfectly normal on arrival at the farm and had a normal temperature. He was turned out into a paddock the following morning wearing a rug due to the cold weather; he was found dead a few hours later that morning. The principal necropsy finding was that of acute shock, the precise cause of which was not identified.
This stallion’s journey took two days to complete having started out from Widden Stud at 7am on Sunday, December 19 completing on Thursday, December 23 at 10.15pm at Lanes End Farm. He spent six and a half hours in transit on Sunday, December, seven hours in confinement due to an aborted flight on the Monday, and then from 8.30am (local time) in Sydney to 6.30pm (local time) in Los Angeles in transit from loading to final unloading on Tuesday, December 21.
Taking time differences and rest periods into account, the stallion was in transit for 47 hours. According to vet Dr Des Leadon’s recent report entitled the General Recommendations on the Transport of Horses, journey time is an important determinant of transit-related illness. His report concluded that routes that minimise transit time have to be the routes of choice. War Pass’s journey consisted of planned elements, but also a number of uncontrolled / incontrollable elements, which included the delayed and ultimately aborted original flight on Monday, December 20. The planned elements included the choice of route and point of entry into the US. Unfortunately, as part of a wider change in the movement of freight (as horses are classified), the transport routes have been lengthened. Traditionally, stallion flights from Australia to the US have been routed through Honolulu, Hawaii – War Pass had to travel through Hong Kong and Anchorage, Alaska to arrive in California, with a subsequent onward air connection to Lexington, Kentucky. Kevin Needham, of BBA Shipping, explained why changes have been made to the
equine transport bloodstock shipping routes. “Horses are transported by the most direct routes in all cases. It’s just that the most direct route for the horse may not be the same route as for a human. People mostly fly on full passenger flights and these have less payload than a freighter and can fly further for the same fuel load,” he said. “Horses need main deck freighters and these are heavy and tend to operate via commercial freight hubs. Furthermore, not all carriers operate freighters and this can mean that horses travel by what appear to be quite convoluted routes when in fact these are the most direct available. “The advent of the wide-body passenger jet with much larger freight capacity in the belly hold has reduced the numbers of freighters operating globally and the current economic position does not encourage carriers to invest. “We have noticed that it is much harder to move horses around in the past three years due to reduced freighter operations and some which do operate having stopovers in countries that we cannot transit with horses.” However, according to Leadon’s report, no rational has been offered for the change from the traditional routing and there is no explanation of the merits or demerits
associated with this change. There is no evidence of a consultation process by the carriers with bloodstock managers on the routing of such flights, or with the other major stakeholders, including insurers. There is no evidence that stallion farms have been allowed to take an active interest in decisionmaking on these shipments. “Route changes are driven by global commercial perspectives and horses make up a tiny fraction of the total cargo market,” continues Needham. “The reduction in numbers of 747s and the growth of the wide-bodied passenger jet means that on many routes the air cargo requirement can be serviced by belly space, which of course excludes horses due to the headroom requirement. “Quarantines are generally sited at point of arrival which is sensible and moving them away from the point of arrival is counterproductive in terms of biosecurity so difficult to argue that one away. “It’s all about management and the War Pass case did involve the horse going the shortest route available. “I think much more is understood now about flying horses and rates of mortality are far lower than they were in the early days
when aircraft just couldn’t fly all the way to wherever they were going and had to leapfrog across continents and most freight including horses went by deep sea!” Leadon recommends that bloodstock managers wishing to employ best practice when it comes to international transportation should be aware of increased journey times due to less direct routes than previously used, while a significant number of stopovers greatly increasing journey times and hence increasing the risk of contracting shipping fever.
Key management Shipping fever, better described as transportrelated respiratory disease, is the most common illness found in horses that are being or have been transported. This condition is a respiratory infection characterised by signs of depression, inappetance, fever, increased respiratory rate, nasal discharge, coughing (often a distinctly soft, moist cough) and can rapidly progress to pleurisy and pneumonia. Shipping fever can occur in as little as four to six hours after departure. Initial signs of this condition may be seen relatively soon after take off in air journeys, which have been preceded by long road journeys or by long delays spent in a road vehicle while awaiting loading onto aircraft. Leadon recommends the following points for managers and grooms to bear in mind when travelling horses. • Providing good health care for horses being transported is essential and requires thought prior to travel, during the journey and post arrival. • Prior to the journey, potentially hostile environmental conditions en route should be avoided; along with prolonged stationary periods in traffic or at refueling stops. • Although the majority of horses are familiar with travelling from a young age, a horse should be familiar with being transported in a confined space and being loaded. • The majority of horses tend to lose weight when the travel; and any weight lost during transit should be regained over the days following the journey. • During the journey, the horses behaviour should be monitored. Hay should be fed on an ad lib basis with water being offered every four to six hours.

Up At Dawn (Inchinor-Up And About (Barathea)) Up In Time: with Rafael Bejarano wins the San Clemente Stakes at Del Mar in July. She has since won the Harold C Ramser Sr. Stakes Photo: Alex Evers/ EquiSport Photos
sn’t it nice when a bargain basement buy justifies your bloodstock judgement; when for once you can walk away from the sales ring feeling you’ve bought one at a surprisingly good price and instead of your purchase mereley becoming an oateating money pit, your investment is rewarded. And when you are a professional in the bloodstock business it must be just that little bit more satisfying. Bloodstock agent Larry Stratton bought the mare Up At Dawn (Inchinor) for 3,000gns at the Tattersalls December Sale in 2007. She has since produced four foals, had two runners and one winner. That winner is Up In Time, a filly by Noverre, who after winning her maiden and then running in the Oh So Sharp Stakes (G3), was sold privately to the US. In the states she won the San Clemente Stakes (G2) in July, and after finishing down the field in the Del Mar Oaks (G1), bounced back to win the Harold C Ramser Sr. Stakes (G3). She is due to run next in the Matriarch Stakes (G1) at the beginning of November. “I bought the mare Up At Dawn because I thought the family was on the upgrade,” said Stratton. “When she went through the ring, I thought I would just have a couple of bids but the hammer came down quickly at just 3,000gns. “I know the family well, though, having previously done some work
with Whatton Manor. When I bought her we were out of room at home for her here [Pantycoed Stud] so she went back to Whatton from Newmarket and the stud has consigned her offspring.” Stratton is quick to point out the role that Whatton has had in producing the Grade 2 winner having bought Up At Dawn carrying to

Up At Dawn (Inchinor-Up And About (Barathea))
She has always got very correct foals. Offered in foal to Kyllachy I hope will be attractive, especially with Up In Time’s US graded performances
Larry Stratton: owned and bred Up In Time, having bought her dam Up At Dawn for 3,000gns at the Tattersalls December Sale
the Darley sire Noverre, a mating planned by Ed Player of the stud. Upend, the grand-dam of Up At Dawn, was bred and raced by Peter Player, and was trained by Henry Cecil. She won her maiden in 1988, in the June of her three-year-old career, progressing to Listed success in August before she finished second in the Princess Royal Stakes (G3) and then won the St Simon Stakes (G3). She has subsequently certainly earned her stripes as a broodmare, not only being a prolific breeder of 17 foals, but also a producer of sound horses - all 17 of those foals ran. The best was Musicanna (Cape Cross), who after selling as a yearling for 60,000gns in 2002 to Charlie Gordon-Watson for owner Abdulla Buhaleeba, went on to become the winner of four races, including the Listed Princess Elizabeth Stakes. She finished third in both the Falmouth Stakes (G1) and the Sun Chariot Stakes (G1). Unfortunately, she did not follow in her dam’s maternal ways and produced just one winner. Musicanna’s half-sister Our Poppet (Warning), however, enjoyed a career in reverse. She only ran once as a two-year-old and did not return to the racecourse, instead was shuffled quickly off to stud. For her owners Mr and Mrs Graham Robinson she produced a colt by Starborough whom they sold for 2,000gns at Tattersalls in 2006. He was bought by Zoltan Mikoczy, has gone on to win 15 races, has become a champion three-year-old in Italy and won the Golden Peitsche (G2). Nicknamed The Budapest Bullet, and Overdose would have brought sprint Group 1-winning black-type to the family when he won the Prix de l’Abbaye (G1) in 2008 - until it was decided that there was a false start in the race and the race was declared void. Interestingly, Royal Gait (out of a half-sister to Upend) won two Group 1s at rather a different end of the distant scale being successful
Mare of the month
in the Group 1 Prix du Cadran, and the Prix Royal Oak before going on to Champion Hurdle success in 1992. Royal Gait was the first in the family to lose a Group 1 race in the stewards’ room – the colt was demoted from Royal Ascot Gold Cup glory in 1988. Upend’s Barathea daughter Up And About was another to only run once, but her own five winning foals (from nine runners) included a Listed-placed gelding and filly, and Tamarillo, a winner in the UAE and the dam of Summer Fete, a Group 3 winner of the Oak Tree Stakes at Goodwood and third in the Group 2 Celebration Mile. One of Up And About’s non-winning daughters was Up At Dawn, who, as the catalogue states “ran a few times at two and three”. At the end of her uneventful racing career, Up At Dawn carrying to Noverre was something of an attractive proposition to Stratton, the agent saying: “I thought he was always a very undervalued sire. He gets nice stock and good athletic types.” With the mare bought and Noverre deported to India, Stratton sent his new acquisition for her second year’s covering to Araafa. In hindsight, it was not one of the best decisions the agent has made, but the resultant colt Don’t Take Me Alive has run four times this summer and finished second at Chepstow where he had the misfortune to bump into the useful Sir Percy colt Cavalerio, who has since won the Haynes, Hanson and Clark conditions race at Newbury. Up At Dawn has since had a Sakhee’s Secret filly, who sold as a yearling to Hughie Morrison at the Tattersalls Book 2 sale for 28,000gns, and a Sakhee foal. She is currently in foal to Kyllachy. Peter Steele Mortimer, brother of Stratton’s partner Louise Parry, bought a leg of Up At Dawn in the summer. It might be a very short ownership period for Steele Mortimer as the mare is to be offered at the Tattersalls December Sale. “She has always got very correct foals,” says Stratton. “Offered in foal to Kyllachy I hope will be attractive, especially with Up In Time’s US graded performances. I know the second race she won in the US was a grade lower than the first, but it proves that the first success was not fluke. She will have run in the Matriarch Stakes as well by the time Up At Dawn goes through the ring. “The Kyllachy out of Up And About made 100,000gns last October and was bought by Crispin de Moubray to go to Henry Cecil – let’s hope the omens are good!”
GlassGuard® Provides Stable Protection Accidental breakage of fluorescent strip lights commonly found in most stables pose a risk of glass contaminating the stable or even injuring a horse. Now GlassGuard® is providing a new type of shatterproof lamp to the equestrian world which eliminates this risk. GlassGuard®’s IP65 fixtures and GlassGuard BlackBand® coated lamps have been fitted at Highland Farm Livery in Suffolk following one too many accidental breakage. The 19 box livery yard is home to rising event and show jumping rider Chloe Winchester. Her father Chris is pleased with the lighting upgrade:
“We use fluorescent lamps to light the stables, but when you throw a rug over a horse’s back the straps fly up into the lamps. We have smashed a number of lamps that way and the result is a bed full of glass. I now have total peace of mind that if the new GlassGuard® lamps break, the coating will keep all the glass contained, so it won’t fall in the bed or on the horse. What is immediately noticeable is that the GlassGuard® lamps are far brighter than the old ones. The new fittings also use 40% less electricity, making a big difference to my bills.”
GlassGuard® produces Europe’s largest range of fragment retention lamps, providing a solution for all businesses and organisations wishing to eliminate glass contamination and injury from accidental lamp breakage. The company manufactures an extensive range of products designed to provide the highest level of protection for the food production, pharmaceutical, hotel and catering industries as well as public areas such as schools, leisure centres and hospitals. The high quality GlassGuard® fragment retention coating is applied to an extensive range of lamp types. for more information visit www.glassguard.co.uk or call 01842 763 752

bloodstock charity effort
The Katie Nugent Duathlon: photos by Jim McCartan The Katie Nugent Duathlon took place on Sunday, October 16 at Ballinlough Castle, Clonmellon, Co. Westmeath in aid of the fund set up by Nick and Alice Nugent in memory of their daughter Katie, who died of leukemia in May last year, aged just six. The fund is dedicated to the emotional and psychological welfare of children (and their families) on St John’s Ward, the oncology and haematology ward at Our Lady‘s Hospital for Sick Children, Crumlin. Despite many of the bloodstock industry being already knackered from an intense month spent at the yearling sales, many of the great, good, slow and not so fit from the racing and bloodstock industries
turned out in support – at least the last four weeks’ spent walking around sales’ yards inspecting and selling horses helped do something for the fitness levels. In total, 200 people took part and an amazing €70,000 was raised in sponsorship. Race winner was David Fagan MRCVS, with Tattersalls auctioneer Harry Fowler in second. The ladies’ race was won by Aushorse representative Fiona Goor. If you missed your chance to get involved, wish to donate or want to find out what you can do to help with the charity, go to www.katienugentfund.com.
1. Winner alright! Race winner David Fagan with Alice Nugent 2. Timmy Hyde: spotted a runner to note for the future? 3. Clodagh Kavangh: is she off to a Flying Start? 4. Stretch two, three, four: Andrew Nolan of Goffs limbers up 5, 6 and 7. Slow, slower, walk: Michael O’Leary bounds up the hill; Nick Nugent sprints up the hill; Eddie O’Leary looks up in the hill in despair 8. They’re off! Tattersalls’ Harry Fowler (far right, black vest) was keen to get flyer – will his point-to-point rides get such a positive start to their races this season? 9. Don’t go off too fast! Nick Nugent puts the day job to good use as he advises the runners ahead of the challenge
