first word

Why not a mid-summer crown?

The King George meeting would have fitted the bill perfectly, argues Paul Haigh

T

Versatile Gordon Lord Byron got the 6f on soft ground in the Qipco Champions Sprint better than the rest – and benfited from the absence of Slade Power

he concept is immaculate. The date is just appalling. It wasn’t Ascot’s fault that Kingman and Australia, the two most exciting horses to race in Britain this year, had both been retired by the time October 19 came around. Nor was it Ascot’s fault that the weather conspired to make absolutely sure no potential champions were declared. But the sight of decent but not brilliant, not quite first raters (yes, and sadly that seems to include the heroic Cirrus Des Aigles these days) plodding round on not particularly good jumping ground was hardly the magnificent crescendo to a season envisaged when the meeting was moved from Newmarket to the country’s premier racecourse. If you put a meeting slap bang between the Arc and the Breeders’ Cup, you guarantee that some are going to bypass it in any case. The fast ground horses will look for the obvious alternative. The stars of Arc weekend will not be turned out again two weeks later. The class will go elsewhere. If Treve had arrived for the Champion Stakes she would very probably have won it by 5l or 6l. If Toronado had run in the Queen Elizabeth II he would probably have been beaten by the going. Slade Power might have beaten the superb Gordon Lord Byron who was under heavy pressure from halfway but got home because he has as much intestinal fortitude than the man who coined that phrase; but Slade Power was away in Australia looking for better opposition and probably (this is written before the event) getting pasted by the Australian sprinters who are normally better than ours in any case. As for the mud running Madame Chiang and the bumper horse who won the stayers’ race, what is there to say? They are game and they got their ground, but we wanted to see champions and they were winners mainly because the others were blunted.

If you put a meeting slap bang between the Arc and the Breeders’ Cup, you guarantee that some are going to bypass it in any case

The meeting produced one very touching and enthralling story – the victory of Noble Mission in the day’s premier event. Two, if you count Gordon Lord Byron, although he won only because he gets a bit further than 6f and his rivals didn’t quite get six on testing ground. How long though can this meeting bask in the memory of the incomparable Frankel? So Frankel’s brother won the Qipco Champion Stakes. It was a wonderful story not least because it had the added twist that even the great Sir Henry made the occasional mistake. It hadn’t occurred to him or anyone else that this fine horse battling around the circuit in his early years without possessing anything like the phenomenal acceleration of his sibling might benefit from front-running tactics that would bring his determination into play. Most of us now are huge fans of Noble Mission, even if he isn’t worthy to be mentioned in the same breath as his brother. It was hard not to laugh when the post-race summariser, trying to squeeze a few extra drops of emotion, said: “Noble Mission says to his big brother ‘Anything you can do, I can do…’” then thought about the “better” and very sensibly left it out. Actually the best thing you can say about Noble Mission when comparing him with Frankel is that he would have made a much better pacemaker for the great one than their half-brother Bullet Train. His value as a sire will be huge given the genes he shares and the proof he’s now shown as to how much he hates to get beaten, but Noble Mission is not a champion however thin you slice it. Nor is Charm Spirit, although to be fair he does keep on winning and the difference between him and the Guineas winner Night Of Thunder was (let’s be kind to Richard Hughes) the luck in running. At least what cream there was rose to the top in the Queen Elizabeth II. So what should be done about it? Not a lot will be done for a while, of course, because British racing administrators,

first word just like decision makers everywhere, don’t like to admit it quickly when they’ve got things wrong. For another few years the meeting will continue in its present form, sometimes attracting top class horses whose connections don’t think they’d be suited by the Arc’s 1m4f, sometimes attracting brilliant milers whose connections think there’s as much chance of getting good ground at Ascot as there is of finding it for lesser prizes at Longchamp. Once or twice it might even be run on proper Flat racing ground, though whether by that time the proper champions will have given up on it is anyone’s guess. But eventually they will draw stumps on what is essentially a flawed event. Actually the meeting had more credibility when it was held at Newmarket, a better drying course and one that’s further east and therefore less at the mercy of autumn rain. Just take a look at the list of Champion Stakes winners before the move. Enough people have already pointed out that it’s just in the wrong place in the calendar. But of course its defenders will say, because they’re tyrannised by the notion of “narrative”, it has to be at the end of the season. No it doesn’t, and it doesn’t have to be run after the Arc either. There is no law of narrative that says a seasonal climax has to be on the edge of winter. Eventually they will do what they ought to do immediately and shift the whole show to some other date. But where? In general (although who can trust the British weather?) it rains less in September than in October. Late

Why shouldn’t the King George meeting be beefed up with a Mile championship, a Sprint championship and all the rest of the championships?

July and August are British racing’s primetime. This is the time of year when Britain’s finest are in full bloom – not mid-October when most of the stars are ready for a rest, even if they do find autumn conditions acceptable. Most of the suggestions for a new location in the calendar are for September, a month earlier than the present date. There is no reason at all why Qipco British Champions Day shouldn’t be the first in the series of autumn climaxes rather than the afterthought to the Arc meeting it looks like now. Mid-September would be fine in an Indian summer. It might be fine in an ordinary year. Early September would be too close to a great meeting that already exists at York. One other thought occurs, not quite half-baked yet but with just a bit of colour showing on the crust. There was a time when the King George at the end of July was referred to as “the mid-summer championship of Europe”. In those days it was a race generally reckoned to be on a par with the Arc. Where is it written that a British championship can’t be held at a time when meteorologists would give it a decent chance? Why shouldn’t the King George meeting be beefed up with a Mile championship, a Sprint championship and all the rest of the championships that have taken the Arc to a higher level than its erstwhile rival? The Qipco Midsummer Championship of Europe has quite a nice ring to it. It would sell an awful lot of tickets anyway.

Big prize pot on offer for new race in Singapore China Horse Club with Singapore Turf Club unveil plans for valuable race meeting next February

T

HE China Equine Cultural Festival (CECF), held in October, backed by the China Horse Club and a weekend of racing and social functions, saw plans announced to stage the richest race ever in Singapore at the CECF Yangtze Delta Region VIP Gala Dinner. Through the evening the official “Exchanging of Documents” took place between The China Horse Club and the Singapore Turf Club to confirm the hosting of the first international CECF in 2015, the 2015 CECF Singapore. The racing weekend will see the running of the richest race in Singapore carrying prizemoney of S$3.05 million and will take place on February 20- 22, 2015. A completely new racing event, it has been strategically scheduled during the Chinese New Year when, according to the Singapore Turf Club, approximately 600 million Chinese travel domestically and internationally. The event will provide the Singapore Turf Club with another major race day in addition to the Singapore Airlines International Cup, Emirates Singapore Derby and Longines Singapore Gold Cup. “There has never been a thoroughbredinspired international event designed to cater for the unique requirements of a niche market from mainland China, the CECF Singapore changes that. The concept of drawing a population of Chinese, including ultrahigh net worth Chinese, overseas with a sophisticated lifestyle and social festival is very exciting,” said Mr Teo Ah Khing, chairman of The China Horse Club. “An event of this stature would not be possible without the continued support and vision of the Singapore Turf Club, its Chairman Mr Tan and senior management.” Mr Tan Guong Ching, Chairman of

Singapore Turf Club said: “We are happy to provide the Singapore Racecourse as the venue for China Horse Club to stage the racing highlights of the 2015 CECF Singapore. “It will be a promising day of exciting racing action with world-class thoroughbreds competing for handsome prize monies. Combined with the traditional hospitality of the CHC, the festival will deliver a complete sensory experience to all participants.” The day after the CECF gala dinner, the Zhejiang Nine Dragons Hill National Jockeys Challenge took place, part of the Yangtze Delta Region Race Day in which eight local jockeys rode against international jockeys Darryll Holland and David Flores. The home jockeys won three of the four races, but Holland was successful in the first race of the afternoon on the former Aidan O’Brien-trained The Ferryman. Races through the afternoon were sponsored by the Chinese magazine The Hurun Report, Coolmore, which backed the CECF Singapore Cup, as well as the official timekeeper Longines. It has been a busy couple of months for the Chna Horse Club – its racing and bloodstock manager Michael Wallace having been buying yearlings for the Club at Goffs, Tattersalls and Arqana for a total outlay of just under £3 million. Zhejiang Nine Dragons Hill Jockeys Challenge

New moves announced to legalise betting in China The news has arrived that European bloodstock has been waiting to hear and was unsure that it would get – according to the People’s Daily, China is reopening betting on horseracing in the mainland after a 65-year ban. Betting will be restricted to a type of lottery and proceeds will be distributed to the national treasury, charity organisations and the horseracing industry. The China Jockey Club, which was inaugurated in September and has been established by several state-backed enterprises, will run the sport. The paper also reported that Peter Phillips, grandson of The Queen, been hired as a global ambassador for the Jockey Club. Phillips runs a sports’ marketing company called Sel UK. Horseracing was introduced in China in 1850, but betting has been banned since the 1949 communist takeover, although horseraces and equestrian events were allowed to continue, with a number of new initiatives in recent years to facilitate a continued opening up of the sport.

Extra dates for Tattersalls Ireland TATTERSALLS IRELAND has announced the reintroduction of a Derby Sale Part 2 in its 2015 sales calendar, which also includes a new mixed sale in December. Due to the high demand for places in the company’s premier NH store horse sale, the June Derby Sale, the auction house has made the decision to reintroduce Part 2, which will offer around 250 horses on Friday, June 26 the day after the main Derby Sale. The company is also planning to host its first December Mixed Sale, which will offer a selection of NH and Flat foals, yearlings and mares. Making the announcement, Tattersalls Ireland managing director Roger Casey said: “The demand for horses in 2014, both Flat and NH, has been overwhelming – but equally the demand from vendors for places at all Tattersalls Ireland Sales has been greater than ever. “This is as a result of the emphatic results in the sales ring in recent years.”

the news

Lane’s End Farm buys into Belmont Stakes hero Tonalist LANE’S END FARM has bought a share in Tonalist, winner of this year’s Belmont Stakes, the last leg of the US Triple Crown. He is a son of the current US leading sire, Tapit, the only US sire this season to have broken the $10 million mark in progeny

earnings. The Gainesway Farm-based sire, by Pulpit, has already earned more this season ($13 363,588) than any other US-based sire has accured in one year since Smart Strike’s progeny won $14,358,570 in 2007. Tonalist has once finished out of the first three when fourth on his debut, and adding the top tier Jockey Club Gold Cup to his tally in September. Owner Robert Evans bought the colt privately after he was not sold

for $195,000 at the Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Yearling Sale. Speaking after the announcement, Lane’s End owner Will Farish told US media: “We are extremely excited to acquire an interest in this outstanding colt. His sire is quickly becoming the most important stallion in the US. “Tonalist is his only Grade 1-winning son at a mile and a quarter and the only multiple Grade 1-winning son.”

Bill Farish added: “We’ve had great success with Classic stallions and he certainly adds to that legacy. A.P. Indy, Lemon Drop Kid, Curlin, and Union Rags won races like the Belmont and Gold Cup - we feel Tonalist will continue that success.” Tonalist is one of four winners from five runners for his dam Settling Mist, a Pleasant Colony half-sister to the dams of triple Grade 1-winning fillies Riskaverse and Havre De Grace.

could revert to staging the July Cup on a week day after relatively poor attendance figures since moving to a Saturday, and also separate the two-year-old races on Future Champions day. Arqana October gave us a chance to catch a couple of races over lunch and illustrated some of the areas in which French and our racing differ. I bred a runner in the two-yearold conditions race, who was upgraded from fourth to third after the winner Royal Style was found guilty of interference with the fifth and demoted to behind her. Here the jockey would have been fined and been suspended, but the colt would have kept the race. In France, if you have a tricky horse in the stalls, you are allowed to opt out of the draw at the declaration stage and get the high number spot in order to go in last. Also, big handicaps in France are treated differently by the assessor, often only putting up the winner, unless there is a close finishing second with the third several lengths behind. This gives the consistently placed horses a chance to win, rather than

being constantly penalised and handicapped out of a winning opportunity. This is the time of year for anti-social waking hours with the Victorian Spring Carnival clashing with the hour change here.

Liam and I did not have to “do” Doncaster, Fairyhouse or Keeneland, but after three books at Tattersalls and the follow-up at Arqana, we were glad of a couple of days off before the Horses in Training Sale. For the first time, neither of us went to Qipco Champions Day at Ascot. The combination of the ground, weather forecast and absentees made watching Champions day on television a pleasurable alternative before catching the overnight ferry to Caen for the Arqana sale. The day is a great concept that needs a change of date - and, ideally, it should not clash with other, well established, international festivals. It should also lead into Arc weekend, enable the best stayers and sprinters to take part before going into quarantine for the Melbourne Spring Carnival and include free exemption for the winners to compete in the Breeders’ Cup.

In fact, I reckon Tait would be a prime candidate for a role with the British Horseracing Authority, should he wish it! At home, I am pleased to report my last lawn mow of the year, having thought that my sister had bested me before I went to Arqana. The Red Polls have settled well into their new job of providing a good sward to nurture the Duke of Burgundy butterflies next spring. Finally, Liam and I found a good new restaurant in Ouistreham near the docks. I volunteered to pay after my breeder’s primes for third at Deauville and was delighted to find an excellent €22 menu for a threecourse meal.

A stallion-sharing scheme has been announced between Qatar Bloodstock and the Aga Khan Studs, with current Tweenhills-based Makfi and the newly retired Charm Spirit the first sires to be part of the reciprocal arrangement. Charm Spirit is to stand his first season at Tweenhills, while Makfi is to move from Britain to stand at the Haras de Bonneval in Normandy for 2015. A triple Group 1-winning son of Invincible Spirit, Charm Spirit rounded off his career in October with victory in the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth II Stakes at Ascot on Qipco British Champions Day. He had previously won the Group 1 Prix Jean Prat and the Group 1 Prix du Moulin and, in his nine-race career, only once finished out of the first three when fifth in the 2,000 Guineas. He won as a two-year-old and finished third in the Group 1 Prix Jean-Luc Lagardère at Longchamp. Charm Spirit is owned by Sheikh Abdulla bin Khalifa Al Thani, father of Sheikh Hamad and Sheikh Fahad of Qipco Holding. David Redvers, bloodstock and racing manager to Qatar Bloodstock, said: “Charm Spirit’s win at Ascot was a great advertisement for his qualities, highlighting his abundance of class and courage. In an exceptional year for milers he has proved himself time and again, rounding off his career with a hat-trick of Group 1 wins on three different tracks and on a range of going, but always with the same result. “We are thrilled to be standing Charm Spirit at Tweenhills. Freddy Head considers him worthy of being spoken of in the same breath as Goldikova and Moonlight Cloud, which is some accolade. His sire, Invincible Spirit, has established himself not just as an exceptional sire but also increasingly as a sire of sires. “We are also very excited at the prospect of working with the Aga Khan Studs. Makfi’s progeny have already enjoyed a lot of success in France and we are delighted that under this new arrangement he will stand in Normandy and be more accessible to French breeders. We are committed to standing our best stallions in France at the Aga Khan Studs, as well as in Britain at Tweenhills. Next season Makfi will stand at Haras de Bonneval and in 2016 it will be Charm Spirit’s turn.” Georges Rimaud, Manager of the Aga Khan Studs in France, said: “We are delighted to be entering into a partnership with Qatar Bloodstock, which will be a source of great opportunities in the long term and we are very much looking forward to standing Makfi next season and Charm Spirit in 2016. “Makfi, who has sired 15 winners from his first crop, boasts a ratio of 40 per cent winners to runners, making him one of the leading first-crop sires in Europe. The future looks promising, as he himself had made only one start as a two-year-old, which he won, and went on to become the champion three-year-old. It is a wonderful opportunity to give a direct access to French breeders to a 2,000 Guineas and Prix Jacques le Marois winner, and in the near future, to the brilliant triple Group 1 winner Charm Spirit.” The 2015 stallion fees for Charm Spirit and Makfi are yet to be confirmed and will be announced shortly.

the news

Australian studs see off Drayton South Mine in landmark case Darley and Coolmore have won a bitter three-year battle with Australian mining company Anglo American. Darley and Coolmore opposed the company’s planned Drayton South Mine, saying it threatened their billion-dollar stud farms nearby. The plans could have seen mines dug within 500 meters of the studs’ fence lines. The proposed opencast mine would have produced seven millon tonnes of coal a year and, according to Anglo American, contributed an annual A$35m in royalties to the government. The company said it was critical to extending the life of

its existing mining operation at Drayton, which employs 500 people. However, in October the New South Wales Planning Assessment Commission ruled that the proposed mine extension was “not in the public interest” and did not provide a sufficient buffer to protect the horse studs from the impact of mining. “The economic benefits of the project do not outweigh the risk of losing Coolmore and Darley and the potential demise of the equine industry in the area with flow-on impacts on the viticultural and tourism industries,” the commission

reported. The decision is a blow to Anglo American and the wider coal industry, which is struggling with a slump in prices, China’s recent imposition of tariffs on imports and increasing levels of environmental activism. “This has gutted our 500-strong workforce and their families. The PAC’s decision will have serious detrimental implications for the Hunter Valley and for New South Wales,” said Seamus French, chief executive of Anglo American’s coal business. He said the company was considering its options.

The bitter planning dispute pitted horse breeders, local vintners and farmers against the powerful coal mining industry. It became a focal point for a rising tide of opposition to mine expansions in the wider Hunter Valley, an area of scenic beauty rich in coal. Several mines and coal seam gas projects in the region have attracted persistent environmental protests. “This is a very important decision for the Australian horse breeding industry and one of enormous relief to Darley,” said Henry Plumtre, managing director of Darley Australia.

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

HERE ARE only a few minor yearling sales left this year, and the strength in this year’s leading sales bodes well for the forthcoming mare and foal sales in the northern hemisphere. The select yearling sales where driven again by the ever-enthusiastic Sheikh Mohammed, who dominated the purchasers’ list at Tattersall’s Book 1 and Book 2, and by some margin. Qatar drove some heady duels for some of Darley’s major sires making Dubawi, in particular, the dominating sire of 2014 in the sale ring. Often in such a strong market place there is a reluctance to sell quality mares and fillies at the breeding stock sales as many studs are in the position to keep the mares and fillies that they would otherwise find difficult to replace. It can mean that the sales lack the stars that we have become accustomed to seeing in recent years. Quality is the number one criteria when looking for a good sale in any category. Looking forward to the future, the brave breeders will be very well rewarded by putting the occasional filly in training as the current plethora of good solid sires in Europe makes the possibility of breeding your own stakes winner eminently more feasible. This year’s strong first-season sires’ list brought us many stallions under £15,000, many of whom are now competing for top honours as leading young sire. Ultimately it is this list each year from which most money can be made as pinhookers try to predict the following year’s leading first-season sire, but it is not without risk. It is likely at this year’s foal sales that many pinhookers will bank that either Canford Cliffs or Poet’s Voice will be in Lope De Vega’s enviable

position near the top of the freshman sire list. Dream Ahead has a chance and Dick Turpin, though he has fewer representatives, has enough yearlings going to Richard Hannon – the stallion only needs a Royal Ascot winner to become hot property and give the others a run for their money, just look at Starspangledbanner’s achievements this year. Is it intuition that makes the same pinhookers thrive each year with their boundless energy? Or is it that there is safety in numbers and the more stock you have, the luckier you become! I prefer to believe we have intuition as, without many other qualifications, it helps me persuade myself there is a skill involved...! This year’s foal sales will undoubtedly be dominated by Frankel with his foals continuing to build the expectation for their appearances on the racecourse – it is an anticipation rarely seen before. The prices they might achieve as foals and yearlings this winter and next autumn will only be seen again when, or if, Frankel reaches Galileo’s status. This is how our strange industry works; we pay more for hope value than actual value. I have read with interest the various criticisms about the champions’ series, sponsored rather generously by Qipco, and think that airing views in public, as damaging as some recent letters in the Racing Post have been, is not conducive to creating a productive negotiating platform for the future. Although more time-consuming, constructive meetings should be organised with the trainers and owners if there is an overwhelming opinion for change. Behind closed doors is the way forward, if only out of respect to the sponsors.

n the absence of a genuine champion either on a day billed as British Champions Day, or indeed in a race called the Champion Stakes, a good story would have to fill the gap. And the one that developed did so to perfection. The tale of how the Group 1 centrepiece of Ascot’s showcase seasonal finale provided a poignant, but happy, reprise of events in 2012 will be told and re-told by anyone fortunate enough to witness it. The peerless Frankel signed off his unbeaten career in the 1m2f race less than a year before the death of his trainer Sir Henry Cecil. Two years on, Frankel’s year-younger brother Noble Mission, trained by Cecil’s widow Jane and likewise carrying Prince Khalid Abdullah’s silks, rose magnificently to the occasion for which he seemed most serendipitously named. “Henry always had faith in him,” said Cecil, “and now he has got his confidence he has shown what he can do. He was so brave in the race and you couldn’t really have written the script. It is just a fairytale that has come true.” As a spectacle, Noble Mission’s battle with Al Kazeem down the home straight would have added lustre to the sport’s annals, even without the emotion surrounding his neck victory. And there was the twist in that the runnerup was the horse on which the winner’s rider James Doyle shot to prominence last year, a raised profile that earned him the transfer to the Abdullah team. The whole narrative package was a gift for both those promoting the day and its Qipco backers, and not the first time they have had cause to be grateful to Warren Place, Juddmonte Farms, its mares and Galileo. Frankel and Noble Mission may share their parents Galileo and Kind, but they are by no means peas in a pod, either in ability or aptitude. But any horse will compare unfavourably with a true great, and the younger horse has many of his own admirable qualities. He has won nine of his 21 starts, has never been out of the first four, and earned more than £1.3 million. And if his ability seemed to exceed his enthusiasm at times last year, that attitude is now a memory.

gb and ire racing Noble Mission has benefited from the front-running tactics devised by Cecil and her team and, like his celebrated older brother, has become more tractable as he has matured. Both his trainer and jockey singled out the horse’s regular rider at home, Martyn Peake, for praise in that department. The 1m2f trip was as far as Frankel wanted to go but for Noble Mission it seems a minimum; he has three victories at 1m4f, over which distance his second dam Rainbow Lake won the Lancashire Oaks. His strong suit is a relentless gallop, rather than a high cruising speed and explosive acceleration, and in Ascot’s testing conditions Doyle got the forcing tactics spot-on, though his over-use of his whip – to which his mount responded bravely and generously – earned him a sevenday ban and a £10,000 fine. In any epic finish there is a loser as well as a winner and the irony of the result was not lost on Doyle. “When I saw a head come to challenge me two furlongs out I knew immediately it was my old friend, and I knew he’d be tough,” he said. “And although I was delighted to see him come back to his best, I owe him so much that in a way I wish it hadn’t been him I was beating. “Noble Mission has had tough boots to fill, being Frankel’s brother. He hasn’t got the

same engine as him, but what he has got is pretty power packed. He has great resolution, and showed it. I know he’s been called some names in the past, but I think he’s put all that to rest now.” The Champion Stakes was Noble Mission’s third Group 1 victory, after his defeat of Magician in the 1m2f Tattersalls Gold Cup and the 1m4f Grand Prix de SaintCloud he was awarded on the subsequent disqualification (for a banned substance) of head winner Spriitjim. And if his emergence as a top-level performer has been a fine training feat, so has Al Kazeem’s comeback after proving subfertile at stud, and victory for him would have been a fine tale. John Deer’s homebred six-year-son won three Group 1s last year for Roger Charlton (the Tattersalls Gold Cup, Prince Of Wales and Eclipse Stakes) and, after his Ascot performance under George Baker, he may head to Hong Kong in December after another.

Kingman and Charm Spirit have taken Irish National Stud resident Invincible Spirit to second spot in the sires’ table, his best-ever placing (Lawman) and Hill Star (Danehill Dancer). Noble Mission and Frankel are the second full-brothers to win the Champion Stakes, after Pharos in 1924 and Fairway in 1928-29, both by Phalaris out of Scapa Flow (Chaucer). In addition, as the table on the previous page shows, three sets of half-siblings have taken the contest, first run in 1877: Labrador (1896) and Sceptre (1903), Bayardo (1909) and Lemberg (1910 and 1911), and Solar Slipper (1948) and Peter Flower (1950). Kind has joined an exclusive club and there may yet be the opportunity for her make it more so – the 13-year-old daughter of Danehill has a Galileo yearling and visited the king of Coolmore – poised for his sixth title – again this year.

Spirit charmed ‘em at Ascot

If the Champion Stakes provided the result for the heart, then the Queen Elizabeth II

Stakes was one for the head. The winner, Charm Spirit, carries the colours of Sheikh Abdullah bin Khalifa al Thani to give the occasion’s Qatari sponsors a victory on “their” day. The three-year-old milers have had the edge over their seniors this season, and the European finale was no different, with Charm Spirit followed in by his contemporaries Night Of Thunder and Toormore. The order was slightly different the last time the three met when Night Of Thunder won the 2,000 Guineas with Charm Spirit fifth and Toormore seventh. That was, however, Charm Spirit’s only defeat this season – like Guineas runnerup Kingman he has gone from strength to strength and it was a matter of regret that the two sons of Invincible Spirit could not meet again, the divisional champion-elect ruled out of the showdown by a setback. Unlike Kingman, Charm Spirit has not been one to win by daylight; his five victories this season have come by an aggregate of less than 2l. For his three Group 1 prizes he beat subsequently demoted Yuften and Shifting Power a neck and three-quarters in the Prix Jean Prat, Toronado and Night Of Thunder a head and a neck in the Prix du Moulin and Night Of Thunder and Toormore two halflengths at Ascot. But trainer Freddy Head rates the colt up with the best he has trained. “He’s not the sort to win by 5l,” he said, “but you can’t beat him. You come to his hips and he finds something extra.” As Richard Hannon knows to some frustration – he trains Night Of Thunder, Toronado, Toormore and Shifting Power. Charm Spirit, a first Group 1 for Olivier Peslier since taking up a retainer with Sheikh Abdullah, was bred by Lucien Urano’s Ecurie des Monceaux, also responsible (in partnership with Skymarc Farm) for Ectot and Chicquita. The colt, knocked down to Head as a yearling for €140,000, is out of dual minor winner L’Enjoleuse, a daughter of Montjeu from the distant family of Holy Roman Emperor, with whom she shares her third dam Ciboulette. The exploits of Kingman and Charm Spirit have taken Irish National Stud resident Invincible Spirit to the runner-up spot in the sires’ table, his best-ever placing. The 17-yearold Green Desert horse has ten Group 1 winners to his credit, including another high-class miler in Moonlight Cloud, also trained by Head.

Chiang gets the first G1 for Archipenko

In the third Group 1 contest at Ascot, the recently promoted Fillies & Mares Stakes, the 2l winner Madame Chiang capped a fine week at the highest level for her trainer David Simcock, who had five days earlier in Canada taken the Woodbine Mile with Trade

Storm and the Northern Dancer Stakes with Sheikhzayedroad. The three-year-old also provided a toplevel breakthrough for her sire Archipenko as she ran home gun-barrel straight for Jim Crowley, taking advantage of Chicquita’s left-handed drift through the final furlong. Runner-up Silk Sari was another to benefit

as (not for the first time) Chicquita tracked an erratic course, turning likely victory into third place. On her favoured ground Madame Chiang, bred by her owner Kirsten Rausing, was able to fulfil the promise of her Musidora Stakes victory in the spring, having warmed up nicely when within 2l of Treve in the Prix

T

he freshly-shuffled pre-Ascot card at Newmarket now has three juvenile Group 1s and, of the two colts’ contests, the only one that can truly justify the Future Champions tag is the Dewhurst Stakes. The 7f contest, founded in 1875, has long been the best indicator of young talent and in the past dozen years six of its winners, including New Approach and Dawn Approach, have gone on to Classic glory, and one – Frankel, of course – to immortality. Belardo did not impress the bookmakers – he is judged a 20-1 shot for the 2,000 Guineas – but he has added to trainer Roger Varian’s dreams of another Classic, less than a month after he won his first, the St Leger with Kingston Hill. His Newmarket stable also houses Cursory Glance, one of the market leaders for the 1,000 Guineas. Once he saw daylight, Belardo powered away from Kodi Bear and Smuggler’s Cove, showing a creditable change of gear on soft ground for Andrea Atzeni. He comprehensively turned the tables on the fourth-placed 11-8 favourite Estidhkaar, who had beaten him into fourth in the Champagne Stakes (G3) at Doncaster. Belardo, bred at Ballyinch Stud, was a first Group 1 success for the County Kilkenny nursery resident Lope De Vega and capped a fine meeting for the Shamardal horse’s first crop, which also contains Cornwallis Stakes (G2) winner Royal Razalma. Lope De Vega emulated his own sire by winning the Poule d’Essai de Poulains and Prix Du Jockey-Club. Belardo, out of the precociously smart Danehill mare Danaskaya (third in the Group 1 Cheveley Park Stakes) was sold as a yearling at Deauville for €100,000 and is his owner Prince Faisal’s first Group 1-winning colt since Invincible Spirit took the Haydock Sprint Cup 12 years ago. For the stallions responsible for the other Group 1 juvenile winners, it was business as usual. Middle Park Stakes winner Charming Thought was an 11th individual top-level winner for Oasis Dream and Galileo, responsible for Fillies’ Mile heroine Together Forever, now has 46 to his credit. Charming Thought gave Godolphin, rebuilding after a welldocumented nightmare two years, a first Group 1 success in Europe this year. The colt thwarted 1-2 shot Ivawood – Estidhkaar’s Richard Hannon stablemate – by a nose under a clever ride from William Buick, who slipstreamed the favourite until inside the final furlong. Bookmaker reaction was that the Charlie Appleby-trained Charming Thought, at 16-1, has a better Guineas chance than Belardo. The last winner of the 6f race to go on to mile Classic glory, though, was Rodrigo De Triano in 1991. Charming Thought, a 625,000gns yearling, was bred by Craig

Belardo: a first Group 1 winner for Ballylinch sire Lope De Vega, who on the same card also got the Cornwallis victor, Royal Razalma

Bennett’s Merry Fox Stud (as indeed was Cursory Glance) out of the mile Listed winner Annabelle’s Charm, acquired as a yearling for 425,000gns. The Indian Ridge mare is out of a sister to two top Ballydoyle performers in Ballingarry (Canadian International) and Aristotle (Racing Post Trophy).

O

ne of Cursory Glance’s rivals on the Rowley Mile in the spring may be Together Forever, who has made steady progress as the season has gone on. A week after a Listed win at The Curragh she stepped forward again under Joseph O’Brien to better May Hill winner Agnes Stewart by half a length. Again, the contest provided frustration for punters with defeat for a warm favourite – Lucida who could finish only fifth – but there was some consolation for her Godolphin team as their third string Winters Moon stayed on for third, beaten a nose. Together Forever, bred by Vimal and Gill Khosla, was a 12th Group or Grade 1 winner of the season for Ballydoyle. She is a half-sister to Prix Jean Prat winner Lord Shanakill out of the unraced Theatrical mare Green Room, who is a half-sister to Yellow Ribbon Stakes heroine Spanish Fern. The pair are out of Chain Fern, who is a sister to Irish Guineas winner Al Bahathri, whose produce include Haafhd, winner of the 2,000 Guineas and Champion Stakes.

...and being by Archipenko means Madame Chiang is regally and intriguingly inbred to one of the best mares in the stud book Vermeille after a three-month break. The testing conditions were not to everyone’s taste – high-profile runners undone by the conditions on a day when 17 Group 1 winners were among those competing for £4 million included Estimate, last in the Long Distance Cup on her final run – but as Crowley put it: “I’ve raced on far worse than this in my jumping days.” Madame Chiang, who will stay in training as a four-year-old, is from the first crop of Archipenko, who stands at Rausing’s Lanwades Stud near Newmarket. The filly’s links with the Suffolk nursery go back more than 30 years – her grand-dam Kiliniski, out

of Kilavea, was conceived there and returned to the fold after Rausing bought her as a 15-year-old barrener for just $2,000. Kilavea used to board at Lanwades, for owner Magnus Berger before her purchase in 1981 by Sheikh Mohammed with Kiliniski – one the first crop of Rausing’s subsequently very successful stallion Niniski – in utero. The mare was one of the Sheikh’s earliest broodmare acquisitions and her daughter, second in the Yorkshire Oaks, proved smart over middle-distances. Madame Chiang is out of Kiliniski’s

daughter Robe Chinoise, by Robellino, winner of two minor races. And being by Archipenko means Madame Chiang is regally and intriguingly inbred to one of the best mares in the stud book. She really is a bit special, literally and figuratively. Archipenko, whose high-class globetrotting career was crowned by victory in the 1m2f QEII Cup in Hong Kong, is out of Bound, a younger half-sister to Kilavea. Madame Chiang

Gordon Lord Byron nets another

The Group 2 6f sprint will have Group 1 status next year, but was another contest without the acknowledged divisional leader, Slade Power. With the Haydock Sprint winner G Force, the only three-year-old in the field, scuppered by a wide draw and heavy ground, it was left to the admirable six-year-old Gordon Lord Byron to grit his teeth and get on with it. Wayne Lordan asked the pride of Tom Hogan’s County Tipperary yard to pop between Tropics and Jack Dexter 50 yards from the post, which he did with such champagne exuberance that he had opened daylight by the line.

It was the tough gelding’s 43rd race and 11th success, bringing his earnings to £1.4 million, not bad for a horse with a €2,000 price tag as a foal. He has raced in five countries this year, gathering in a famous Group 1 victory in Australia in March to add to last year’s Haydock Sprint Cup. As his name implies, Gordon Lord Byron is by Byron (like Invincible Spirit a son of Green Desert), based at Woodlands in County Galway.

Forgotten Rules set to be remembered

If an undisputed equine champion was there at Ascot, it may have been one for the future. The two to particularly catch the eye were the Dermot Weld-trained pair Free Eagle, third in the Champion Stakes on only his fourth racecourse appearance, and Forgotten Rules, winner of the Long Distance Cup on his third. Both horses are Moyglare Stud home-breds. The marathon was marred by the careerending injuries suffered by Gold Cup hero

Leading Light, but there was no denying the impression made by the winner as he drew smoothly clear of Biographer and Pallasator and the four-year-old is now as short as 4-1 favourite for next year’s Gold Cup. Forgotten Rules, now three from three, made his debut in a bumper (as did Weld’s 2010 winner of the Ascot stayers’ crown, Rite Of Passage), winning by 13l and followed up by 8l in a minor contest at Galway. Weld, never one to entertain an angel unawares, said: “Before the race I thought the only danger would be his inexperience. We’ve had to give him time, and that always pays dividends, but you’ve got to know they’ve got the ability in the first place.” The gelding, by Shadwell resident Nayef, is from one of the best Moyglare families, his second dam being Epicure’s Garden, a sister to Irish Guineas winner Trusted Partner, herself dam of Sun Chariot and Matriarch Stakes heroine Dress To Thrill.

reve’s youthful owner Sheikh Joaan Al Thani grinned on the rostrum on the track at Longchamp surrounded by his young sons after his champion had completed her historic double in the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe. If Treve’s owner is a young man, relatively new to thoroughbreds, the team which surrounds his champion has a certain experience. Madame Criquette Head was already a successful trainer when Alleged won his two Arcs in 1977 and 1978 and she become known throughout the racing world the following

season when Three Troikas won the Poule d’Essai des Pouliches, the Prix Saint Alary, the Prix Vermeille and the Arc de Triomphe. Her father Alec, the breeder of Treve, started training in the 1940s and at the time Alleged won the Arc, he had already given up to concentrate on his extensive breeding interests in France and Kentucky. Treve’s jockey Thierry Jarnet won his first race in 1985 and his first two Arc de Triomphes in the early 1990s on Subotica and Carnegie. On the days leading up to the Arc weekend Criquette Head told the French racing press that Treve had done everything she had hoped for since the filly made her comeback

euro racing in the Prix Vermeille and, she added, that she and her father Alec were both confident about her chances of completing the double. However, despite the credentials of those announcing their confidence it was shared by few of France’s other racing professionals. The majority view could be summarised along the lines that Treve had had an extremely tough race in the Prix Ganay when she had come within a short head of defeating Cirrus Des Aigles over the gelding’s best distance and on his preferred very soft ground. Her well documented physical problems meant that she ran below her best when beaten at Royal Ascot and again when finishing only fourth to Baltic Baroness in the Prix Vermeille. Thirty seven years is a long time to wait for an Arc double and the logical view was that only a champion at the top of his or her form would complete the double – Treve had not looked like that since April.

N

ot for the first time opinion was both plausible and wrong, and the Head family’s confidence turned out to have been well founded. Looking back with the memory of Treve once again racing away from the Arc field in 2013 with the greatest of ease, we did all write her off very quickly. It was not even as if she had put up a series of poor runs. On firm ground at Ascot over 1m2f she was beaten by The Fugue and Magician, two top horses, while the Vermeille has turned out a better race than many thought at the time. Baltic Baroness and Pomology were given relatively uncontested leads and those who came from a long way back to finish close behind the leading pair put up high class performances, as both Treve and Dolniya proved by going on to finish first and fifth in the Arc. If Dolniya confirmed her class, and that of Baltic Baroness and Pomology, by finishing fifth alongside Kingston Hill, Treve improved by 5l from the Vermeille, just as Criquette and “Papa”, (as she always refers to her father), had told us she was going to. Just like Alleged all those years ago, Treve was as superior to her second Arc field as she had been to the first. The ground was very different as the going was certainly firm once the expected rain did not arrive. The Arc weekend has not changed its date in the calendar, but in recent years the going

has far more often been good or better rather than soft or heavy. The average time of the last ten Arcs, from Hurricane Run to Treve, is 2m29sec, some two seconds faster than the average for the previous decade from Lammtarra to Bago. In the last ten years there have been only three Arcs run in 2min30sec or slower, more or less the marker for soft or heavy ground over the course and distance. This change in the climate may well make


euro racing

In the last ten years there have been only three Arcs run in 2min30sec or slower, more or less the marker for soft or heavy the race a more attractive one for future stallions, although it could also explain why five of the last ten races have been won by fillies. On good ground a horse has to have speed to win or go close, and Hurricane Run, Deep Impact and Sea The Stars are three excellent stallions to have come out of the race in recent years. Treve’s second Arc was almost exactly six seconds faster than her first, so it was probably the ground rather than ability which meant the field was not as strung out behind her as it had been in 2013. This time, Treve raced comfortably without pulling and from the number three stall she had the perfect draw in the conditions which were so fast that

it was very difficult indeed to make ground by racing wide. At the top of the straight for 100m or so she and Avenir Certain appeared to be going equally well and to be quickening away from their rivals together, however, once Avenir Certain’s stamina ran out, Treve and Jarnet were able to race away and win easily without ever being threatened by those finishing from further behind. The final time was an excellent one, but the early pace had been sensible rather than fast and all of the principals had been with the leaders at the top of the straight with the exception of the Japanese filly Harp Star. Yuga Kawada showed his lack of experience

on the track by waiting too far off the pace on the Japanese champion and then switching to the wide outside to make his run on a day when the French jockeys were doing everything possible to stay close to the rail. If the best of the Japanese challengers made her own problems, the best of the British-trained runners were unlucky with the draw. From stall 15, Taghrooda took time to settle and then was forced to race wide and without any cover for most of the race, but the John Gosden-trained daughter of Sea The Stars was still staying on well at the end. From stall 20, Kingston Hill put up an even more impressive performance on the firm ground. He sprinted from the outside stall to take up a position in front on the rails and, although he soon found an excellent rhythm, the son of Mastercraftsman had been forced to make his effort on the uphill section of the course. The second, Prince Khalid Abdullah’s

euro racing Flintshire, had the ground in his favour, but it is likely that he has had more physical problems than Treve over the last year as this was the first time he has looked and run like the horse who won the Grand Prix de Paris in the style of a future champion in July 2013. Now he has returned to form, Flintshire is going to win top races, and he would have won the Arc if Treve’s trainer and her “Papa” had not stuck to their guns.

S

heikh Joaan was back grinning in the winners’ enclosure only a few minutes after the Arc when his four-year-old colt Olympic Glory put up the performance of his career to win his final start before retiring to Al Shaqab’s French stallion base at the Haras de Bouquetot. The Prix de la Forêt was the only race of the day where the final sectional times were slower than those at the top of the straight, and yet the final time of 1min17.73secs was a new record for the race. The Forêt is one of the races which was transferred to the Arc weekend and it has become a significant event and a pointer to future stallion success. A downhill course and fast ground are what Noozhoh Canarias has been waiting for and the Spanish-bred colt covered the first 6f of the race at an astonishing pace. Olympic Glory was one of those who couldn’t begin to match him and at the top of the straight the son of Choisir was in last place and being ridden along to stay in touch. When Noozhoh Canarias did begin to tire the others started to make ground and the field opened up miraculously to allow Lanfranco Dettori and Olympic Glory to weave past them all, without once being stopped in his momentum. At the line he won easing down from Gordon Lord Byron and the brave Noozhoh Canarias. Almost as impressive was the Coolmore two-year-old filly Found, who won the Marcel Boussac in the style of a champion. The daughter of Galileo and the top racemare Red Evie was stepping back up to a mile after finishing third in the Moyglare over 7f and she raced away from a strong field to win by two and a half lengths. The draw played a role in this result too – if she hadn’t been drawn wide the Aga Khan’s Siyouni filly Ervedya would not have been forced to make the running. However, these two were markedly superior in a high-class

Stewards’ enquiry: Gleneagles (in front) lost the Lagardère in the stewards’ room to Full Mast (pink cap)

Most of Yashmak’s progeny had few races, and even fewer wins, and yet Full Mast is now the unbeaten winner of three races, including a Group 1 field and are both likely to win Group 1 races as three-year-olds. The Coolmore team and trainer Aidan O’Brien were also first past the post in the Prix Jean Luc Lagardère over 7f with Gleneagles, who held the late challenges of Full Mast and Territories to win decisively by a half length. However, the son of Galileo was disqualified and placed third as the stewards’ believed he had intimidated Full Mast, who in turn had interfered with Territories. This was an enquiry which could have gone either way, there was a case to be made that Full Mast interfered with Territories before Gleneagles came close to him, however these three colts are clearly close together in ability.

Gleneagles had already won his Group 1 in Ireland and as he is out of a full-sister to Giant’s Causeway will be an attractive stallion prospect one day. The winner is trained by Criquette Head for Prince Khalid and is a son of Mizzen Mast out of Yashmak, who must have been about the most valuable broodmare in the world when she was covered by Zafonic in her first season at stud in 1998. A daughter of Danzig, a half-sister to the champion Warning and the Derby winner Commander In Chief, she had been beaten a head in the Marcel Boussac at two before going on to win a Grade 1 over 1m2f as well as the Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot. By now, though, she had belonged to any commercial farm, she would have been culled from its broodmare band. Full Mast is her 11th foal, and her first stakes winner of any sort. Most of Yashmak’s progeny had few races, and even fewer wins, yet Full Mast is now an unbeaten winner of three races, including a Group 1. He is likely to be France’s champion two-year-old colt. There was another Group 1 win for the Head family at the Arc weekend when the Freddy Head-trained Dansili filly We Are won the Group 1 Prix de l’Opera, coming from behind and finding a way between horses under another great ride from Thierry Jarnet to foil the strong foreign-trained challenge headed by Ribbons, Hadaatha, Tarfasha and Feodora.

Move In Time won the Prix de l’Abbaye in such a tight finish that any number of others might have won with a better run disqualified from the Group 1 Prix Saint Alary after a positive dope test, which turned out to have been caused by an ovarian cyst. The cyst was removed over the summer and Head was able to get her back to her very best to win a competitive race. The other Group 1s over the weekend were won by British-based horses. The David O’Meara-trained Move In Time won the Prix de l’Abbaye in such a tight finish that any number of others might have won with a better run. This completed a notable double for Move In Time’s sire Monsieur Bond, who has now produced two Abbaye winners from his first crops after Gilt Edged Girl’s win in 2010. The James Fanshawe-trained High Jinx, a son of High Chaparral, took the Group 1 Prix

du Cadran at the third attempt having been second in 2012 and fifth last year. On the Saturday there were two particularly notable performances. Freddy Head enjoyed another winner when the Wertheimer-owned Solow, a four-year-old Singspiel gelding, won the Group 2 Prix Daniel Wildenstein by a comfortable half length from the Aga Khan’s three-year old filly Veda, who had been second in the Poule d’Essai des Pouliches in the spring. Solow has now won six of his last seven starts and the only time he has been beaten was when asked to race over 1m7f. His dam was Group placed over two miles and so it was hardly surprising that his trainer believed he was going to develop into a middledistance performer.

Once he was dropped back to a mile, Solow was transformed and his official rating is up by 18lb so far this year. He looks good enough to compete successfully in Group 1 races over a mile. Whatever the future holds for Solow he is not going to match the achievements of France’s best gelding Cirrus Des Aigles. The stewards took away Cirrus Des Aigles 22nd career victory in the Group 2 Prix Dollar, but the eight-year-old showed that once again he came back from injury as good and as determined to win as ever. On going far too firm for him to be seen at his best, the gelding fought back when passed by Fractional to win by a head, giving his rival three years and 8lb. This was a fantastic performance, and most impressive of all was the manner in which he refused to give in, and fought back to put his head in front on the line. Although subsequently disappointing at Ascot, Cirrus Des Aigles looks likely on this showing to have plenty more victories at the highest level to come.

Nancy Sexton sees Benjamin Leon getting a return on his bloodstock investments

I

T was in 2010 at the Keeneland September Sale that Benjamin Leon first really made his presence felt when paying $4.2 million for the sale-topping colt, an A.P. Indy relation to Zenyatta. A year later, Leon made his intention to become a force at the top level even clearer when paying a total of $30.575 million at the Keeneland November Sale, including $8.5 million for that year’s Breeder’s Cup Ladies Classic heroine Royal Delta. Despite such an outlay, Leon’s Besilu Stables has enjoyed varying fortunes since. Royal Delta went on to bag a second Breeders’ Cup Ladies Classic, but against that, the $4.2 million colt, later named Mr. Besilu, remains winless. Leon’s shopping spree in November 2011 comprised nine million dollar lots, among them a weanling Smart Strike half-sister to Royal Delta who cost $1.6 million. Given the bold name of Crown Queen, she didn’t break her maiden until mid-June, but hasn’t looked back since landing the Grade 2 Lake Placid Stakes at Saratoga in August prior to successfully making the leap to Grade 1 company in the Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup at Keeneland. For trainer Bill Mott, her progression into Grade 1 winner has been particularly satisfying, given that the handler not only trained Royal Delta

throughout her championship career but also her dam, Delta Princess, to win at Grade 3 level. Delta Princess, an A.P. Indy daughter of Nassau Stakes heroine Lyphard’s Delta, was put down in August aged 15 at Adena Springs due to a degenerative stifle condition. As the dam of two Grade 1 winners, as well as the Grade 1-placed Carnival Court, she leaves behind an important legacy, something which makes Crown Queen all the more valuable. Not everybody needs deep pockets to compete at an elite level, however. Just days after Mr. Besilu fetched the $4.2 million at Keeneland,

Don’t Tell Sophia is one of three Grade 1 winners for Congaree, a resident of Saratoga Stud in New York, who was by far the best runner sired by Arazi trainer Philip Sims paid the minimum bid of $1,000 for a daughter of Congaree, later named Don’t Tell Sophia. Five years later, she is a Grade 1 winner and earner of close to $1 million courtesy of a recent victory in the Spinster Stakes at Keeneland. Don’t Tell Sophia is one of three Grade 1 winners for Congaree, a resident of Saratoga Stud in New York, who was by far the best runner sired by Arazi. Keeneland’s decision to tear up its Polytrack in favour of Dirt undoubtedly played a role in the track securing the 2015 Breeders’ Cup. However, any thoughts that it would deter foreign competition was dispelled by the entry of Olly Stevens’s two-year-old Peace And War in the Grade 1 Alcibiades Stakes. Sent into the race off the back of a defeat in a Haydock novice race, the filly made light of the wet track to scythe through the field under Julien Leparoux and win going away to become the first Group or Grade 1 winner of the year for War Front. Second home was Saratoga debut winner Top Decile, a member of the first Kentuckybred crop of Congrats, while the Sky Mesa filly Paige outran her 65-1 odds to take third. Although War Front is a particularly accomplished sire of Turf runners, Peace And War’s background has to have been influential in her improvement on Dirt. Bought for $300,000 by David Redvers at last year’s Keeneland September Sale, she is the first winner out of More Oats Please, a winning sprinter by Smart Strike who is a half-sister to restricted stakes winner Miss Valentine. Redvers returned to the well again last month when purchasing her Harlan’s Holiday half-sister for $145,000, a purchase which in hindsight now looks a bargain. Just 48 hours following Peace And War’s successful invasion, it was the turn of another foreigner, top Hong Kong sprinter Rich Tapestry, to take centre stage when lowering the colours of Breeders’ Cup winners Goldencents and Secret Circle in the Grade 1 Santa Anita Sprint Championship at Santa

Anita. The gelding made a furious late charge under Oliver Doleuze to get up by a nose and secure a spot in the Breeders’ Cup Sprint. Rich Tapestry began his career for breeder Moyglare Stud Farm with Dermot Weld, for whom he won a Dundalk maiden. From there, he joined Michael Chang in Hong Kong where he became a revelation on Dirt, winning the Sprint Cup (a local Group 2) at Sha Tin in April 2013.

Rich Tapestry: enjoyed success in the US

He also had a successful trip to Meydan earlier this year when successful in the Mahab Al Shimaal and runner-up in the Dubai Golden Shaheen. The top three from the Santa Anita Championship are each expected to take their place in this month’s Breeders’ Cup at Santa Anita. One horse, however, who won’t be making the trip to California is the everpopular Wise Dan, whose attempt at a third Breeders’ Cup Mile was derailed by a nondisplaced fracture at the bottom of his right fore cannon bone. Another sidelined Grade 1 winner is Todd Pletcher’s exciting two-year-old Competitive Edge, who suffered a hairline fracture to a

hind leg shortly after his brilliant victory in the Hopeful Stakes at Saratoga. However, the trainer hasn’t had to wait long to unearth a replacement. Even by his own high standards, Saturday October 4 was an exceptional day for the handler as his twoyear-olds Carpe Diem and Daredevil posted dominant displays to take the Breeders’ Futurity at Keeneland and Champagne Stakes at Belmont Park.

C

arpe Diem was particularly impressive in the Breeders’ Futurity, overwhelming the opposition to the tune of sixand-a-half lengths to emulate his half-brother J. B.’s Thunder, who landed the event when it was run on Polytrack four years ago. The pair are out of Rebridled Dreams, a Grade 2-placed daughter of Unbridled’s Song, who is also responsible for smart British sprinter Doncaster Rover. Carpe Diem has already been in the headlines once this year as the $1.6 million sale co-topper at the OBS March Two-yearolds in Training Sale in Florida. Sold on that occasion by Northwest Stud to Stonestreet Stables, who owns him in partnership with WinStar Farm, he looks well bought, especially as he has no doubt already earned a slot on the WinStar stallion roster. Making him particularly appealing in that department is the fact he is a son of emerging sire of sires Giant’s Causeway, for whom he is a 29th Group/Grade 1 winner. Daredevil, who justified favouritism in the Champagne Stakes to win by two-and-a-half lengths, is campaigned by Let’s Go Stables, who paid $260,000 for the colt at Keeneland last September. However, he was another welcome result for WinStar as the 15th Grade 1 winner for their resident More Than Ready, one of those rare stallions who operates at a high level in both hemispheres. In California, the juvenile standings are ruled by Zayat Stables’ American Pharoah, who followed up his win in the Del Mar Futurity with just as an impressive victory in the FrontRunner Stakes at Santa Anita. His sire, the Empire Maker stallion Pioneerof The Nile, was represented by two high-class colts, Cairo Prince and Vinceremos, in his first crop earlier this year. The emergence of American Pharoah out of his second has further consolidated the feeling that he is a legitimate heir to his sire, who was sold to Japan in November 2010.

FEED THE DIFFERENCE


Cape Cross: the dam sire of this year’s dual Derby winner Australia has been “gaining momentum as a broodmare sire”

Grandfathers of the future Alan Porter analyses emerging broodmare sires ahead of the breeding stock sales

A

s we write this a recordbreaking Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sales has ended, but it will only be a matter of weeks until we turn our attention from the product to the producers, broodmares and broodmare prospects. With that in mind we thought it might be worth looking at some emerging broodmare sires on either side of the Atlantic. One question that arose when considering this project was, is there such a thing as broodmare sirelines? Well, there are certainly stallions that enjoy success as broodmare sires, and that have sons that follow suit, but in terms of this being a genetic trait that is heritable

46

www.internationalthoroughbred.net

through the male line, there would appear to be little evidence. To start with one of the most important factors with regard to the impact of a stallion as a broodmare sire has little to do with his own genetics, as success or failure in this role will be greatly impacted by the quality of mares a stallion covers. The most likely factors that would be specific to a broodmare sire would be sexlinked inheritance and sex-linked expression (or imprinting). Sex-linked inheritance would depend on positive variants for racing ability being present on the x-chromosome (female chromosome), which a stallion would pass on to his daughters and not his sons. Sex-linked expression would require positive racing

variants to be passed on through autosomal chromosomes (those that can be inherited from either sire or dam), but expressed differently when inherited from a son than when inherited from a daughter (which does happen with humans in cases such as PraderWilli/Angelman Syndrome). It’s possible that either of these could explain, in part, horses such as Buckpasser, Secretariat and Alydar, who were extremely disappointing sires of sires, but outstanding broodmare sires. Of course, to recall our earlier point, they did also all have tremendous books of mares. From the genetic standpoint we can note that all three were also out of expectionalproducing mares, and we must admit that in considering unproven broodmare sire

prospects we do like stallions that are out of exceptional racemares or producers. Although some stallions are better sires of mares than they are of sires, or even runners, we can recall very few bad stallions who made really good broodmare sires.

Cape Cross: a slow burn

We’ll start our alphabetical run through some emerging broodmare sires who have caught our eye in Europe and the US with Cape Cross. He was not a stallion who generally covered mares out of the top-drawer when he retired to stud, so he’s had something of a slow burn, and a high proportion of the early stakes winners out of his daughters were by relatively modest sires. He’s been gradually gaining momentum, however, and this year there have been five stakes winners out of his daughters, of course, headed by Australia. While we’re not espousing the “broodmare sire of sires” argument, Dixie Union does happen to be the son of a very good broodmare sire Dixieland Band. His first stakes winner was only a foal

of 2009, and he added two stakes winners from the 2010 crop, but his 2011 crop yielded Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1) scorer New Year’s Day, and he already has two more stakes winners, including the graded scorer Cristina’s Journey, among the current twoyear-olds. Dixie Union was one of the first major US stallions to feature the triumvirate of Northern Dancer, Mr. Prospector and Seattle Slew, and Cristina’s Journey, one of the better runners for her sire Any Given Saturday has duplications of all three. El Corredor – by another good broodmare sire, Mr. Greeley – also had a “one of the first” type pedigree as he was one of the first top-class runners with inbreeding to Mr. Prospector to retire to stud. He’s been a respectable rather than outstanding sire, but he’s been coming through quickly as a broodmare sire, despite his daughters not generally being bred to upper echelon stallions. To date he’s broodmare sire of 11 stakes winners – all but one four-year-olds and younger – including Grade 1 scorers Iotapa (by Afleet Alex, and inbred to Mr. Prospector) and Let Faith Arise, and graded-winning and Grade 1-placed Sweet Whiskey. This is one we might attribute to the dam of the sire as El Corredor is out the Silver Deputy mare, Silvery Swan, also dam of another very good runner in Roman Ruler. Co-incidentally, Roman Ruler’s sire Fusaichi Pegasus is shaping as if he might be developing as a broodmare sire, despite being regarded as a disappointment as a stallion. Mares by the Grade 1 Kentucky Derbywinning son of Mr. Prospector have so far produced 22 stakes winners, 11 of them graded, and four Grade 1 winners. Fusaichi Pegasus is out of a mare by Danzig and seems to be providing a useful foil for the Danehill branch of that line, and one of his stakes winners Rose Of Choice (Choisir) has Danehill 3 x 3 and Danzig 4 x 4. The cross has also produced two stakes

winners for Fastnet Rock, among them Grade 1 scorer Albany Reunion.

Galileo: not unexpected

If being out of a mare who is a good runner or producer is an important criteria, then Galileo was always going to make it as a broodmare sire, and so it’s turned out. His first stakes winner as a broodmare sire was Saamidd in the 2010 Champagne Stakes (G2), and since then he’s added another 28 black-type scorers in this role. His second broodmare sire crop included Group/Grade 1 winners La Collina and Lea, and there are at least 12 stakes winners from the crop foaled in 2010. This year saw the first Classic winner out of a Galileo mare in the shape of Night Of Thunder. Not surprisingly, Danzig/Danehill is appearing frequently here in the sire line of stakes winners out of Galileo mares, including four by Fastnet Rock. Night Of Thunder (Dubawi) is from the Mr. Prospector sire line through Seeking The Gold, a three-quarters relative to Galileo’s broodmare sire, Miswaki. We’ll also keep on eye Galileo’s son, New Approach, who is free of Danzig/Danehill, and out of the excellent runner and producer Park Express.

Becoming a broodmare sire Giant

Just a couple of years ahead of Galileo is Giant’s Causeway, who signalled what was to come when his first crop of any size as broodmare sire came up with two stakes winners – Group and Grade 1 winners Evening Jewel and Planteur. He has since demonstrated that he is going to be a world-wide influence with his daughters having produced Group/Grade 1 winners in four different continents, among them Verrazano, Soft Falling Rain, Warhorse, Tougher Than Ever, Escado, Beauty Parlor and Loch Garman. His very successful son Shamardal is out of a sister to Street Cry, and has stakes placed 2014 two-year-olds Parsley and Zuhoor

emerging broodmare sires

Giant’s Causeway has since demonstrated that he is going to be a world-wide influence with his daughters having produced Group/Grade 1 winners in four different continents Baynoona amongst a handful of 2012 two-year-olds out of mares by his daughters. One that has rather snuck up on us as a broodmare sire in the US is Gone West’s son, Grand Slam. His daughters have already produced 25 stakes winners, 12 Group or Graded, including Group/Grade 1 winners Toronado, Kitten’s Dumplings and Admiral Kitten (all by Sadler’s Wells line horses) and Malibu Pray. Gone West has a prolific stakes siring younger son in Speightstown, who is out of a Storm Cat mare who was a champion twoyear-old in Canada, and we shan’t be shocked to see him turn into a useful broodmare sire either. Grand Slam was by a Mr. Prospector line stallion out of an El Gran Senor mare, and the same description fits Empire Maker, who might be one to watch, as he is out of the stellar producer, Toussaud.

Charlie on his way up

The late, lamented Indian Charlie is by In Excess, a horse who was a very smart and useful sire given that he spent his whole stud career in California. He started out as a mid-priced sire so we have to expect more of a slow burn here, but he’s already sire of the dams of 26 stakes winners, including Grade 1 scorer Gypsy Robin, and graded scorers Samraat, Biofuel, Tu Endie Wei and Marchman. Kingmambo was a very significant international sire and broodmare sire, so it’s not surprising that he has sons shaping with promise on both sides of the channel. King’s Best is a three-quarters relative to Urban Sea, dam of the aforementioned Galileo, and he has 17 stakes winners as a broodmare sire. Lemon Drop Kid is similarly well-

Speightstown: a champion a two-year-old in the US. He is by Gone West out of a Storm Cat mare

credentialed as he is out of a three-quarters sister to A.P. Indy. He definitely appears to be gathering momentum, and the 21 stakes winners out of his daughters include French ace Elusive Kate and 2014 Grade 1 scorer Lochte (by Medaglia D’Oro, so bred on a reverse to the famous Kingmambo/Sadler’s Wells cross), and four other graded winners. We’ll also note that Kingmambo’s somewhat disappointing son Dubai Destination might be a more effective broodmare sire. The first stakes winner from one of his daughters was a foal of 2010, and he already now has five stakes winners as a broodmare sire, including Group/Graded current three-year-olds Ihtimal and Postponed, and the Group-winning 2014 juvenile, Dutch Connection.

Malibu doing very well indeed

Malibu Moon, by A.P. Indy out of a Group 1-winning Mr. Prospector mare, started his stud career at a very modest fee in Maryland. After emerging as a top-class sire, he seems to be headed that way as a broodmare sire with the current crop of three-year-olds out of his daughters providing five stakes winners, including Grade 1 winner My Conquestadory, and By The Moon, who took the Frizette Stakes (G1) being out among the current two-year-olds out of his daughters. Coincidentally, Malibu Moon has two graded winners out of a mare by More Than Ready, another who looks distinctly useful as a broodmare sire. We’ll particularly note him in Australasia, where the reverse of the highly successful Danehill/More Than Ready cross has already come up with three Grade 1 scorers. Like the previously mentioned Indian Charlie, Maria’s Mon (out of a mare by Indian Charlie’s great-grandsire Caro) was another who left us all too soon. He didn’t start with the best of mares, but has already appeared as broodmare sire of 24 stakes winners, ten group/graded, and three Group/Grade 1. In particularly, he appears to be an excellent foil for Storm Cat.

Montjeu making his mark

If he’s not quite in the Galileo league, Sadler’s Wells’s other super-sire son Montjeu is at least useful, and his daughters have already produced 16 stakes winners, eight Group/ Graded and four Group/Grade 1, including

emerging broodmare sires miling stars Obviously (by Choisir, from the Danehill branch of Danzig), Charm Spirit (by Invincible Spirit, from the Green Desert branch of Danzig) and Parish Hall, who is by Teofilo and so a Sadler’s Wells/Sadler’s Wells cross. One of the youngest horses to catch the eye amongst those to have had runners as broodmare sires is Oasis Dream. All six of the stakes winners out of his daughters are foals of 2011 or 2012, none of them are by front line sires, and four have won Group races. Peintre Celebre is out of a mare by Alydar, one of the stallions we have mentioned as exerting a more significant influence through his daughters than his sons, and he appears very similar. There are 32 stakes winners, 18 Group or Graded, out of mares by Peintre Celebre, and they include eight Group or Grade 1 winners, amongst them Red Cadeaux, Cambina and Oaks (G1) victress Talent. She is by New Approach, whose sire Galileo is a Sadler’s Wells/Mr. Prospector cross, while Peintre Celebre is by Nureyev, a three-quarters

All six of the stakes winners out of Oasis Dream’s daughters are foals of 2011 or 2012, none of them are by front line sires, and four have won Group races brother to Sadler’s Wells, and as mentioned out of a mare by Alydar, a close relative to Mr. Prospector. Smart Strike fits right into the “out of an exceptional producer mould” and is a pretty good advocate for that qualification. Considering he spent a considerable amount of his career at a fairly modest fee, Smart Strike has done extremely well as a broodmare sire, and he should continue on the rise for some time as his best bred daughters are going to be relatively young, and he is still producing.

The four-time Group 1 winner Kingman is out of Zenda, a daughter of Zamindar

So far thare are 45 stakes winners out of Smart Strike mares, and the best include the profilic stakes winner First Dude, Kentucky Derby (G1) hero Mine That Bird, Shared Account, who took the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare (G1), and the recent Alcibiades Stakes (G1) winner Peace And War. Two sons of Storm Cat who are emerging as broodmare sires are Stormy Atlantic and Tale Of The Cat. Stormy Atlantic started his stud career inexpensively in Florida, and it’s clear from the sires of his stakes winners that his better bred mares have yet to come on line. He’s certainly one where it’s well worth watching out for young daughters. Tale Of The Cat, who is out of a Mr. Prospector mare who is a sister to the dam of Pulpit, certainly has the pedigree, and there are already 36 stakes winners from his daughters, 14 graded, including Grade 1 winners It’s Tricky, Smashing Glory and Declassify. Tiznow went to stud with an impressive race-record, but a much less flashy pedigree.

He’s thrown to the former, and it looks as if his daughters could follow suit. So far there are seven stakes winners, all from the 2009 crop onward, four graded, including this year’s Del Mar Oaks (G1) winner Personal Diary (by City Zip, and inbred 3 x 4 to Tiznow’s grandsire, Relaunch). He’s another with better bred – and better covered – daughters to come on-line. The brothers Zafonic and Zamindar, are additional members of the “out of good producers” club. Zafonic, whose daughters have produced seven Group/Grade 1 winners, is probably a little too old to really mention here, but his names gives us good reason to mention his son Iffraaj, who is out of another high-class broodmare, and from a very strong family that includes Cape Cross and Diktat in the second dam. The younger Zamindar has had less opportunities, but we can’t overlook that he’s the broodmare sire of one of the stars of 2014 – Kingman.

Gestüt Etzean is currently challenging for a first German breeders’ title. Jocelyn de Moubray meets the farm’s stud manager Ralf Kredel

G

estut Etzean has been a remarkably successful stud since it was founded by Heinz Weil in 1969. This year has been a particularly good one for the stud, which sits on top of the hills south of Frankfurt in Germany – for the first time it has a good chance of finishing the season as champion breeder. At the time of writing Etzean has a narrow lead of some €12,000 in prize-money won over Gestüt Gorlsdorf and the stud’s 20 wins as a breeder include two Group 1s with Feodora and Sirius. Although 2014 has been an exceptional year the stud has always been able to compete with the best in Germany and abroad. If you enter Gestüt Etzean into one of the search

engines which lists stakes results, it comes up with no fewer than 153 stakes performances since 2003, including the Group 1 winners Sirius, Feodora, Night Magic, Royal Highness and Meridiana, and these figures do not include the many high-profile horses who were raised at Etzean for clients. That is a list headed by the European champion Manduro. In its 45th breeding season the stud has been taken over by a second generation, it is now owned by Christiane Weil Dassbach, the daughter of the founder, run jointly by Gerhard Kredel, who took over running the stud three months after the stud begun, and his son Ralf Kredel. “Being a champion breeder would mean a great deal,” says Ralf Kredel, “but it is a friendly contest as my boss gets on well

with Heike Bischoff [the owner of Gestüt Gorlsdorf] and she has a breeding right in our stallion Lord Of England. “It is not easy to be champion breeder without winning the Derby and, unfortunately, we have not had a horse placed in the Hamburg Classic since Nandino was second back in 1983.” Etzean could easily end the season as Germany’s leading breeder and its stallion Lord Of England has an equally good chance of becoming champion sire. In mid-October, Lord Of England was in second place some €30,000 behind Sea The Stars and is going to have many more runners in the final weeks of the season than Gilltown Stud’s champion. When the stud began, the Kredel family

..as they didn’t have the money to go out and buy top mares, they were going to have to raise their horses better than anyone else was farming on the hills which have now been taken over by the stud. “My father and grandfather were farmers here at Beerfelden. They kept pigs, chickens, cows, and always one or two mares from whom they raised riding horses,” explains Kredel. In 1969 Heinz Weil was living in Frankfurt and his passion for racing and betting had led him to look for somewhere to build a stud farm. “The farm here was available for lease and when Weil visited he decided that the place had everything he was looking for,” remembers Kredel. “Beerfelden is high in the mountains, it has a tough climate with plenty of both rain and snow, it is surrounded by forest, is very quiet, and then he probably also liked the fact that he didn’t have to buy but could lease the place.” Etzean is only 50 miles from Frankfurt, but when you travel south on the motorway, once you turn off to reach Etzean, you drive some 30 miles up into the hills on small turning roads and through the forest until finally reaching the small village. The stud is perched

on top of the range at about 1500ft above sea level. “My father Gerhard took over running the farm some three months later,” Kredel continues. “At the time Mr Weil told him that they were going to experiment with many different ideas – as they didn’t have the money to go out and buy top mares they were going to have to raise their horses better than anyone else if they wanted to compete in the best races. “The first year there were only three foals, but one of these was a leading two-year-old and so success came almost immediately.” In some ways, Etzean is a normal commercial stud, even if such a thing hardly exists in Germany where fewer than 1,000 mares are covered every year. It has always stood stallions, and with great success since the Dewhurst Stakes winner Dashing Blade arrived at the beginning of the 1990s. Since then Sholokhov has come and gone, leaving behind him two champion racemares in Night Magic and Monami and an international reputation as a jumping stallion, while Etzean now has Dashing Blade’s best

Etzean has always stood stallions, and enjoyed great success with Dashing Blade in the 1990s

son Lord Of England and Jukebox Jury, a multiple Group 1-winning stallion whose first foals were born this year. The stud has about 35 of its own mares and keeps around the same number for clients on a farm, which now extends over some 300 acres. Every year the stud retains three or four fillies which go into training with major trainers in Germany or abroad, in recent years the stud has had horses with Sir Henry Cecil as well as Mikel Delzangles. The remainder are sold as yearlings primarily in Baden-Baden, but occasionally abroad and in 2011 the stud sold a Galileo colt out of Peace Time for 600,000gns at Tattersalls. Aside from its position and climate the farm has some other distinctive features. For more than 20 years it has raised its horses outside from the moment there are weaned. Despite the harsh climate, there is snow on the ground at Etzean for three or four weeks every year and the temperature will fall to below minus ten, the young horses live outside in large paddocks with shelters to ensure that they can always get out of the wind and find somewhere dry to lie down. Etzean’s stallions live with a regular companion as each shares its box and paddock with a mare.

A

nother unusual feature is that to a large degree both the owners and the managers have learnt about breeding horses through their own experiments, success and

failures. Kredel was born and brought up at Etzean, even if for a long time he wasn’t planning to spend his working life there. “I studied economics while working in a bank,” he explains, “and then left to work in New York where I had an internship with a stockbroker on Wall Street. New York is a fun place to live and when it came up it was not an easy decision to take to return to Etzean. “At the time I was far from sure what I wanted to do, but I have never regretted my choice and I love what I do.” Once Kredel had decided to leave the world of finance he spent a year getting some international experience in the horse business before returning home. He undertook the Irish National Stud course, and had stints at the sales with Richard Frisby and Brian Grassick and then a few months preparing yearlings at the Haras du Mezeray.

It proved to be a spectacular beginning, the Etzean draft at that Baden-Baden sale included two champions, Royal Highness and Manduro for €120,000. These two champions played a big role in establishing their sire Monsun on the international scene. Royal Highness won the Prix de Malleret and the Grade 1 Beverley D Stakes, while Manduro’s three Group 1 victories made him the highest-rated horse in Europe. Both were from Monsun’s fourth crop when Gestüt Schlenderhan’s stallion was standing at about €20,000. Monsun has played a significant role in Etzean’s success as aside from raising two of his very best progeny, two of the stud’s outstanding mares are daughters of Monsun: Night Woman, the dam of the multiple Group 1 winner Night Magic, and Saratina, the dam of this year’s Group 1 winner Sirius.

“Mr Weil was always interested in Monsun,” Kredel remembers. “In fact, he has rarely been quite so keen on any stallion. He thinks deeply about breeding and all the relevant health issues, and he also spends a lot of time and effort looking at pedigrees and he would never buy a horse without examining its pedigree in detail. “He has never spent a lot of money on a mare and looks for value, and some of his best purchases were mares who could not get in foal.” The dam of Royal Highness, Reem Dubai was one of Etzean’s most expensive purchases, bought for 50,000gns as a barren six-year-old mare who had never been in foal.

gestüt etzean For Etzean she has produced Royal Dubai, a Group winner and stakes producer, as well as Royal Highness. She has already produced the multiple Group winner Free Port Lux, and she has a yearling filly by Lord Of England and a colt foal by Jukebox Jury. Weil didn’t even have to buy Noveka, the second dam of Night Magic, as he was given her after she had failed to conceive on either of her first two years being covered. He had to persevere with Noveka as she was barren for four years before getting in-foal while running in a paddock with a stallion. He then sent her to Monsun and she produced Night Woman, a stakes-placed filly and the dam of Night Magic and this year’s Group 1 performer Night Wish. Sometimes Weil was just very lucky as well as shrewd. He bought Sevgi, a minor winner by Waky Nao only because she was in-foal to Monsun. The luck was getting a filly, who was named Sarantina. She became a useful handicapper and is the dam of this year’s Group 1-winning colt Sirius. Feodora’s dam Forever Nice was bought to go to Lord Of England by Christiane Weil Dassbach as the mare had already produced a high-class horse by Dashing Blade. Forever

After nearly 50 years Gestüt Etzean’s policy has remained more or less unchanged. The aim is to produce top class horses without spending huge money on either mares or nominations. Nearly all of Etzean’s own mares are covered by its stallions. “Over the years many people have advised us to change,” Kredel explains, “but we are

trying to make established German lines available to smaller German breeders, even if there are fewer and fewer of them. We also believe that our mares are far better off staying at home and we don’t like travelling mares and their foals,” he explains, adding: And we haven’t done too badly with our own sires! “We have sold eight Group 1 winners in Baden-Baden for an average price of less than €50,000. “We sold Sirius for only €15,000, and then bought back Feodora. She was a little small and no one wanted to give me €20,000 for her.” There are no plans to change anything dramatically at Etzean in the coming years. Lord Of England is gaining an international reputation and Kredel is very excited by the first crop of Jukebox Jury. “They are good-sized horses with a great outlook,” he says. For the remainder of 2014, Etzean will be hoping to secure the breeders’ and stallions’ championships. There is a possibility that Feodora will be able to do both as she is being aimed at Germany’s last Group 1 to be run in Munich at the beginning of November.

Some things are done a little differently at Etzean... each stallion, Lord Of England pictured here, has a mare as a permanant “live-in” partner

Pedigree updates

Byron Rogers has been working to correctly sequence the “No 1” thoroughbred family tree. In this article he runs through pedigree history and outlines his latest research

A

LL modern thoroughbreds trace back in male line to one of three horses of Eastern origin: the Darley Arabian, the Godolphin Arabian and the Byerley Turk, and only three descendants from each, respectively Eclipse, Matchem and Herod. In direct female line, the breed traces to a larger group of foundation matriarchs, including both foundation stock native to the British Isles known for their speed, such as the Galloway from the north of England to the “Irish Hobby”, as well as to imported strains from Asia. In 1791, James Weatherby published an Introduction to a General Stud Book, an attempt to collect pedigrees of current and previous racehorses. The first volume of the General Stud Book was published two years later, with notable revisions taking place in 1803, 1808, 1827, 1859 and 1891. Subsequently, to become a registered thoroughbred, a horse had to trace its ancestry to horses already registered in the General Stud Book. The records of the General Stud Book, incorporating collections from private stud books that pre-existed the formation of a register, stretch back more than 300 years, and ensure that the thoroughbred is one of the most richly documented species on earth. These records are now maintained in the General Stud Book of England (GSB) and other breed registries around the world in a well-organised fashion.

Bruce Lowe family numbers

THE lineage of thoroughbred racehorses has, for a significant period of time, held importance in the racing and breeding industry with unproven stock being valued in many cases on their immediate maternal lineage. Indeed the catalogue page highlights the

female family of the given foal, yearling or horse over other parts of the pedigree, which may have just as much influence on the outcome. Traditional thoroughbred pedigree analysis has classified the maternal descent of the breed in terms of “Family Numbers”, with these numbers often being carried in catalogue pages up until the mid-1980s. The family numbers commonly used to designate various thoroughbred female families were popularised by C. Bruce Lowe,

an Australian pedigree researcher working at the end of the 19th century. They flourished at the beginning of the next century with a posthumous publication of his works. Lowe had traced back the pedigrees of the complete list of winners of the three oldest English Classic races – the St Leger Stakes, Epsom Derby Stakes and Epsom Oaks – grouping them by direct lines of tail female descent, from dam to grand-dam and on back until the family was no longer traceable in the GSB. Families were then assigned a number by Lowe based on the total number of Classic winners descended from the family at that time. The family descending from

pedigree research Tregonwell’s Natural Barb Mare was designated “No 1 Family”, the Burton Barb Mare, whose descendants had produced the second highest number of Classic winners, designated “No 2 Family”, and so on. The resulting 43 numbered families became the core of his study, and many thoroughbred breeders still use his family numbers as a convenient way to categorise thoroughbred families to this day. Additional works such as The Family Table of Racehorses, also commonly referred to as the Bobinski Tables, which were the first to designate different branches of specific families with the addition of a letter such as 1-s (for Web, a 1808 mare who descended from Tregonwell’s Natural Barb) or 2-f (for the Hyacinthus mare, an 1804 descendant of Burton Barb mare), with the most recent updates known as the Toru-Shirai tables. It must be understood that the designation of these branches of families came without

scientific basis, but arbitrarily based upon a matrilineal descendant of the taproot mare having a number of offspring who were distinguished as performers or producers.

Tregonwell’s Natural Barb

The exact origin and ownership of Tregonwell’s Natural Barb is not clear as her stud record pre-dates both the first edition of the GSB as well as many of the private records, which were the original source material for the GSB. A 1744 advertisement for the stallion Merry Andrew in the Dublin Journal called her “a natural Barb mare of Mr Tregonwell’s”, while a pedigree for the well-known stallion Whitefoot (1719) in the Dutton Stud records make reference to his ancestor being “a Natural Barb Mare of Mr Tregonwell’s, a Noted Breeder of the South”. It is believed Tregonwell’s Natural Barb

was born around 1657 and lived until around 1670. Records from the first edition of the GSB do reflect that she had at least three known foals: a filly by Place’s White Turk, a filly by Restive and a colt named Rockwood, whose sire was not stated. The various forms of reference that were made to associate these foals to Tregonwell’s Natural Barb do cast doubt as to the accuracy of this breeding record. By stud book records, today’s members of the No 1 Family descend from Bonny Lass (1723), a bay mare bred by Sir William Ramsden and belonging to the Duke of Bolton. Very little is known about her ability as a racehorse, but at stud she produced Merry Andrew (1730) for the Duke of Bolton, and later for her new owner Mr Panton, the Partner Mare (1735) from whom most, if not all, the No 1 Family descends. An examination of the 4,181 yearlings

pedigree research offered at the 2014 September Yearling Sales (Keeneland) by matching all the yearlings offered at that sale to their Bruce Lowe family numbers indicates that the No 1 Family by stud book records represents approximately 15 per cent of the yearlings catalogued at that sale and is by Bruce Lowe numbers by far the most populous.

Scientific updates

Mitochondrial DNA is where science steps in and while the thoroughbred industry is yet to fully embrace it, science has caught up with and passed by Bruce Lowe numbers. The domestic equine mitochondrial genome was first sequenced by Xu and Arnason in 1994 and was found to contain approximately 16,660 nucleotides. Common to all mammalian species, Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is inherited exclusively from the mother and mutations

regularly occur, often in adaptation for environmental conditions. Sets of mutations shared by a large number of individuals can be used to define maternally linked populations known as “haplogroups”, and subpopulations known as “haplotypes”. This has made mtDNA a very useful tool for studying the evolution of, and classifying, various species including the horse in a far more accurate way than any stud book or record keeping system could. Using mtDNA mutations as markers for familial segregation, Dr Allessandro Achilli and colleagues from the University of Perugia have defined mutational markers of haplogroups and haplotypes for the entire equine breed, making it possible for classification of the thoroughbred not only in relation to within the breed, but also when compared to other equine breeds. In 2002, Dr Emmeline Hill and colleagues,

By stud book records, today’s members of the No 1 Family descend from Bonny Lass

were the first to publish a scientific paper on maternal classification of the thoroughbred via mtDNA analysis, and by analysing the mtDNA of 100 thoroughbreds that were supposed to represent 19 female families according to General Stud Book records. Using just a small fraction, 381 bases of the 16,600 mtDNA nucleotides, they identified 17 haplotypes and concluded that there were significant differences between General Stud

pedigree research clearly belong to the same mtDNA haplotype, speaks volumes for the quality of record keeping over the past 300 years. The 90 new mtDNA sequences have also allowed us to clear up some misconceptions with the history of the No 1 Family from previous mtDNA papers, clarify some common ancestors, and confirm some errors that currently abound in breed classification.

Is he or is he not Bend Or?

In 2012 Dr Bower and colleagues completed a multidisciplinary study of historic thoroughbred horses that included the 1880 English Derby winner Bend Or whose win was shrouded in some controversy as the owners of Bend Or were accused of swapping him, by accident or otherwise, with another horse Tadcaster, whose maternal pedigree was more prestigious at the time. By stud book records, Bend Or was by Doncaster out of the mare Rouge Rose, subsequent foundation mare of the 1-k branch of the No 1 Family. mtDNA collected by Dr Bower from Bend Or’s skeleton, which resides at the Natural History Museum in London, however, indicated that his mtDNA sequence did not match with other members of the No 1 Family, rather it was a haplotype shared by the No 2 Family, from which by GSB records Tadcaster came from. The skeleton known as Bend Or is most probably that of Tadcaster. In our own analysis of the sequence and other sequences from both the No 1 and No 2 Family, Bend Or’s sample places him in the “L” haplogroup, similar to other samples from the No 2 Family and affirming Bower’s findings. The skeleton of Bend Or and its mitochondrial haplotype not agreeing with stud book records is a good example of how, prior to DNA parentage verification arriving in the mid-1980s, errors could occasionally creep into even the most meticulously kept stud book records. The irony that Rouge Rose was assigned by the Bobinski tables as a founder mare for the 1-k branch, mostly due to the efforts of “Bend Or” on the racetrack and at stud, where he was a multiple leading sire, should not be lost on the reader.

Discrepancy with the “haplogroups”

Both of the studies completed by Dr Hill et al and Dr Bower et al described a discrepancy

from stud book records for the branch of Maid Of The Glen, the founder of the 1-u branch. In our study two samples with common ancestor of Furze Bush (1891) were sequenced with contrasting results. One sample, from a European-bred and raced stallion tracing to Whinbloom (1901 daughter of Furze Bush) found agreement with Dr Hill and Dr Bower with the sample sharing the “L” haplogroup (No 2 Family). However, another sample, a branch of the 1-u tracing to another daughter of Furze Bush in Veldt (1905), that is more popular and was sourced in North America, did not agree with the studies by Dr Hill and Dr Bower, rather this sequence agreed with the “N” haplogroup of the No 1 Family. It is hard to be exactly certain when this discrepancy occurred, other than to say that, based on the three studies completed on this branch of the No 1 Family, some or all of the branch of 1-u via Whinbloom (1901) does not share the same mitochondrial haplotype as other members of the 1-u family.

Maternal lineage discrepancy

Dr Bower and colleagues had suggested errors existed in the stud book between the No 1 Family lineage and the No 2 Family lineage and could be traced to Web (1-s). Four samples from our study tracing directly to Web through lines exclusive of any of the branch (1-t, 1-u, 1-w, 1-x) tap-roots under her were obtained. Two of the samples had a “Most Common Recent Ancestor” (MCRA) Absurdity (1903) (12 and 11 generations respectively), the third sample shared an MCRA with the first two, that of Absurdity’s dam Paradoxical (1891), while the fourth, a rarer branch of the family, shared an MCRA with the other three samples at Filagree (1815), a daughter of Web by stud book records. A further 16 samples in our study traced to the imported mare La Troienne, one of the most famous mares of the American Stud Book, who shares an MCRA of Paradoxical with three of the samples described above, and Filagree with the fourth sample. The 16 samples obtained traced to seven different daughters of La Troienne and all 16 through different grand-daughters of the mare giving wide coverage of this commercially popular branch. All 20 samples shared the “N” markers of the No 1 family, indicating that they all

The skeleton known as Bend Or is most probably that of Tadcaster

belonged to the same family. It is apparent Bower and colleagues misplaced the maternal lineage of a discrepancy they found in a sample tracing to 1-p (Hilarity) as occurring with Web, when, in fact, that branch on stud book records traces to a sister to Web (that of Wire b.1811). Similarly, a discrepancy found by Bower in the 1-n branch of Chelandry (1894) attributed to Web, seems to be a misread by that study of stud book records, as Chelandry traces matrilineal to Pawn (1808), who is a sister to Web’s dam in Penelope (1798).

Further issues with Chelandry’s family

Bower and colleagues also identified errors in their study in the branch of Chelandry (1-n) in three samples. For our study, seven samples matrilineal tracing to Chelandry were obtained with a sample tracing to each of her daughters in Bobolink, Chelys, Skyscraper and Yippingale and four samples for Popinjay (via four distinct daughters of that mare in Gay Bird, Pompadour, Popingoal and Prattle). Chelandry is a grand-daughter of Paraffin (1-l), a further five samples were obtained tracing to unique daughters and granddaughters of Paraffin. All 16 samples in this study shared the “N” haplogroups markers. As Bower and colleagues study contained three samples that did not agree with the “N” haplogroup, rather the “L” haplogroup, yet our 16 samples did, it is probable that the three samples obtained by Bower et al represent recent stud book anomalies.

Lady Alice is not what she seems

Dr Hill and colleagues found that one of the eight horses analysed from what is known as the No 16 Family, that tracing to founder mare Stripling’s Dam, showed the “N” founder haplotype, suggesting commonality with the No 1 Family, with the rest of her samples from the “L” haplogroup.

pedigree research

The sequences of the A4 and No 25 Family show they are more closely related than previously thought

A descendant of the mare Lady Alice, an 1855 filly by Chanticleer out of the mare Agnes, was the horse whose genetic sequence displayed the anomaly in that study. To verify this we obtained two modern-day samples tracing to Lady Alice, 11 samples from branches descending from Lady Alice’s half-sister Miss Agnes, and two samples descending from Caroline (1836), a half-sister to Lady Alice’s grand-dam. Analysis of the sequences revealed this female line has some significant deep-rooted stud book discrepancies in it. Of the two samples tracing to Lady Alice one agreed with the “L” haplogroup found in seven of Hill and colleagues’ samples from this family. The other sample found agreement with the “I” haplogroup, not the “N” haplogroup as was expected based on Hill’s study. Furthermore, of the 11 samples descending from Miss Agnes, a half-sister to Lady Alice, one sample, that tracing to Wild Agnes (1862), founder of the 16-d branch of this family displayed the “I” haplogroup. These studies show there may be significant historical stud book errors in the No 16 Family.

When N becomes G

Bower et al suggested that the Janus Mare No 1, annotated as the American No 1 or A1 Family, could well be part of the No 1 Family via sequence agreement. The two samples in this study that were sequenced did not agree with Dr Bower’s sequence of the A1 Family and, more startlingly, did not find themselves at all in agreement with the markers of the “N” haplogroup associated with the No 1 Family. Rather these two samples aligned with the “G” haplogroup. As the two samples selected for this study had a MCRA of Ballet (1871) and were 14 and 13 generations respectively to that MCRA it is more likely that the A1

64

www.internationalthoroughbred.net

Family is from the “G” haplogroup and that the single sequence used in Dr Bower to ascribe joint matrilineal descent of the The No 1 and A1 families is indicative of a stud book error in their sample. Further sequences from this family would clarify this situation.

One mutation splits A4 from No 1

Using a small fraction of the mtDNA sequence Dr Bower and colleagues described that the American A4 Family (Medley Mare No 2) is separated from the No 1 Family by a single mutation. The two samples from our study agreed with Dr Bower and colleagues sequence, however larger sequences for the same samples from A4 Family indicate that it is a separate haplotype of the “N” haplogroup, with a mutation outside the area tested by Dr Bower and colleagues. The A4 Family shares a “G” mutation common with the English Shire and Saddlebred and lacks the “T” mutation indicative of the No 1 Family as described above. Thus the A4 Family could not be, as Dr Bower proposed, a branch of the modern No 1 Family. Interestingly, however, it appears that based on the sequences of our study that the No 25 Family (that tracing to the Brimmer mare) is in same haplotype as the A4 Family and therefore shares a common matrilineal source. The most parsimonious interpretation of that might be to suggest that the founder mare of the A4 Family, The Medley Mare No. 2, whose own dam was known in the ASB only as an anonymous daughter of the imported stallion Sterling (1791), is in fact a member of the No 25 Family who merely “lost her papers” on her ancestress’ importation into the US. This finding touches on the underlying dogma in both scientific and lay thoroughbred pedigree circles that highly performing US thoroughbred families must trace their maternal lineage to mares who were included in the GSB, as to explain their apparent racing class. The sequences of the A4 and No 25 Family show they are more closely related than previously thought (and more distantly maternally related to the No 1 Family), but given the diversity of equine populations that founded the thoroughbred and the mutations differing between the families, it is more likely that the A4 and No 25 Family share a

more distant common ancestor that pre-dates the GSB and other record keeping.

Stunning 300-year-old record keeping

The fact that over 70 individual mtDNA samples studied specifically point to a wellconserved female family that traces by stud book record to a single mare is astounding. While there are clearly distant errors in the General Stud Book and other thoroughbred registries around the world, generally speaking the accuracy of most of the branches of this single family and mitochondrial haplotype we examined is a broader testament to all the individuals involved during the past 300 years as stewards of this breed. In examining the racing class and history of the samples in this study, it is apparent that the descendants of the samples tracing to the No 1 Family were kept in a tremendous range of circumstances (one in particular that excelled over hurdles in the 1940s in Ireland for a few generations) and in a wide range of geographic locations, giving greater appreciation to the remarkable stud book accuracy of this matrilineal haplotype. The limitations of any study on mitochondrial DNA is, of course, that it cannot discount the possibility that there are stud book anomalies caused by “substitutions” of animals with the same haplotypes (i.e. two foals out of closely related mares), which are obviously not detectable, and also the possibility of the sire of a distant ancestor being incorrect. However, as our study showed, it can begin to pinpoint where an error looks to have been made in the recording of the female offspring of an ancestor in a pedigree, and also identify mitochondrial mutations that are unique to a particular “family” making classification possible. In an era where the cost of sequencing full mitochondrial genomes is becoming more and more affordable, the sequencing and proper classification of all racehorses is possible, and something from which the entire industry would benefit.

here is a compelling logic to market theories, compelling because, like most plausible ideas, market theories appear to be consistent with our own personal experience. Needless to say there are many apparently daft theories which have been proven to be exact, and as many plausible ones which bear little or no relation to reality, but even if we know this to be the case we are still drawn to ideas which seem to confirm common sense observations. The simple idea which has led to the formation of market theories is that when examined together a mass of different decisions is both more logical, and both more easily explained and predicted, than any one individual case. Each individual decision to buy or to sell at a particular price may be based on anything from a detailed analysis of the likely consequences for the vendor

or the buyer, to a wild impulse, an absurd whim, or the toss of a coin. The theory suggests that individual decisions are not particularly significant, but that the mass of multiple, independent decisions says something interesting about the current state of the market, any market, and enables observers to make reliable explanations of past behaviour and predictions of future trends. This sounds like common sense for those who buy and sell at bloodstock auctions. Individual prices sometimes, or frequently, may appear to be unjustified or arbitrary, but viewed as a whole the bloodstock market appears to make decisions and to determine if not values at least a pecking order. Stallion X is more likely to have good winners in the future, or will attract more and better mares next year because his foals or yearlings averaged so much, or sold far better than the progeny of stallion Y.

If you have to start factoring in the sales records of the 471 dams, you move to over a 1000 different numbers in one step and things become far more complicated. The aim of the article is to try to make predictions about future sales on the basis of examining the trends in stud fee, foal and yearling averages for some of the more successful sires to have retired to stud in Europe over the last ten years. Some earlier stallions were included such as Galileo, Oasis Dream and Acclamation to see if the trends set by Europe’s better,

or in Galileo’s case the best, stallions exhibit a pattern likely to be repeated by their successors (see page 74). Predictions are the key to any interest as so much of what passes for analysis in the horse business is done after the event. It is not difficult at all to come up with an explanation for success once it has already happened, but it is not very interesting as racehorses are not clones and what has worked in the past is never going to be repeated, exactly, in the future.

Tiggy Wiggy’s 2014 success had a significant influence on sire Kodiac’s yearling average in 2014, which was already, as seen in the graph left, on an improving arc. It will be interesting to see what impact the increased yearling average and Tiggy’s profile has on Kodiac’s stud fee for 2015 and continued progression as a stallion

There has also to be a doubt whether averages can say anything of interest in a market place in which each individual seems to be so different or purchase is not re-examined with hindsight, except in the rare instances where the dream was fulfilled and the horse did develop into a top athlete. The racing and bloodstock worlds both have an element of fantasy – apparently informed and rational people make decisions on the basis of the best possible outcome, even though they know from experience that the best possible outcome is exceedingly unlikely. There is an element of fantasy

in all market analysis, how else could anyone believe for a moment that market decisions are rational? And, as a general rule, the smaller the proportion of believers, the more the market is likely to be manipulated and further it will be from any sort of a free market determined by independent decisions of equally well informed players. There has also to be a doubt whether averages can say anything of interest in a market

place in which each individual seems to be so different. If you are selling or buying a foal or a yearling its value seems, as you stand beside the ring watching it turn forlornly in front of rows of empty seats, or striding purposefully around the ring with flashes going off between the mass of faces peering down to watch, to depend upon individual characteristics – its conformation, its X-rays, the short list of the buyers who seemed to like it and not upon an average.

And yet something has to set a value, and it is more likely to be an average which has been established than anything as vague or as unpredictable as its real chance of developing into a successful athlete.

Foal prices influence fee

Dutch Art, Dark Angel, Kodiac, Iffraaj and more recently Showcasing – all of their first foals sold as ordinarily or as well as would be expected for a stallion standing at a similar fee. In fact, if you want to predict the average price which will be achieved by a sire with their first foals at this year’s sales, you don’t need to go and look at the individuals; it will be somewhere between three and five times the fee they were standing at in 2013. Interestingly, but hardly surprisingly given that most foals are purchased either to promote their sire or to be resold the following season, the foal market is one where the “winner’s curse” plays a strong role. The winner’s curse was a technical term thought up by

a most important one for all stallion owners as a sire will have two crops of foals sold before it has a runner or even a horse in training. The foal market and the average prices attained by a sire’s first two crops have a strong influence on its fee, the number of mares it will cover, and, of course, on its owner’s income. And yet these statistics show categorically that the foal market has no record whatsoever for predicting future stallion success. Many of the sires whose first foals sold exceptionally well not only turned out to be disappointments, but, just as importantly, none of the cheap sires who have developed into expensive ones made a splash with their early foals.

economists studying auctions for mining rights. Invariably they found it turned out that the winning bidder was being advised by the most optimistic of the geological experts and so paid too much as the true value of the mine was nearly always closer to the average than to the outlying predictions. In the foal market stallions whose first foals sell too well invariably have a poor first yearling season, their progeny have high reserves and a high value put on them by their foal prices. This results in a poor second-season foal average.

It takes time

There are plenty of good examples from Oasis Dream to Sea The Stars, and then among this year’s first-season sires Lope Dde Vega and Paco Boy. Oasis Dream’s first foals averaged £110,000, more than four times his initial fee, and yet it was not until his seventh crop that his foals exceeded this average, and even his yearlings did not average significantly more until his fifth crop (see page 69). Lope De Vega’s and Paco Boy’s first foals both sold exceptionally well, averaging around four and

market’s judgement. Everybody loves buying something which appears to be on an upward trend and once a cheap stallion has early success its progeny will be carried on the surge for some years to come, before reality or stardom is consolidated. Foal pinhookers have come to focus upon the progeny of firstseason sires. The sire will not have runners before you get to re-offer the foal as a yearling and this, combined with the fact that many stallion owners support their sire’s first progeny when they are yearlings, suggest that pinhooking the progeny of firstseason sires is a low risk option.

or less equal groups in terms of numbers. Those whose first crop recorded a far higher foal and yearling average than any of the subsequent ones, those whose most recent crops recorded far higher foal and yearling averages than the first ones, and then the third group is those whose fee and averages have gone both up and down during the early seasons their progeny have been offered for sale. For those looking to sell the trend is more important than the value itself. It is not easy to maintain a stallion who starts out with a high initial fee and whose first foals sell well – disappointment soon clouds the

stallion fee, foal, yearling analysis These figures suggest that this is not necessarily so. It may make sense to pinhook the progeny of the less-thanspectacularly-popular-firstseason-sires, but the progeny of the wildly popular ones are often going to be too expensive to buy in order to resell at a profit. The progeny of second and third-crop sires will be less expensive to buy and will have a greater potential upswing, once the sire’s progeny start to run. If you like the progeny of a particular first-season sire the logical plan of action is to do nothing, but remember to buy one in two years’ time.

Success does tend to follow success for stallions, but there will always be a time lag between winners and the progeny of the better mares repeating the success on the racecourse. The figures give perhaps more insight into the behaviour of stallion owners rather than pinhookers. Stallion owners are trying to maximise their income over a period of years and all make an effort to stabilise their horse’s fees. If fees were determined by demand alone they would oscillate wildly as, once a stallion is hot, its owners will be bowled over by demand whatever the fee. The reverse would also be true – when a

sire is cold no one will come, no matter how much the fee is dropped. There seems to be two different models. The frontloading one in which the horse stands at a high initial fee then dropped progressively until something dramatic happens, or the alternative where the fee is relatively low at the beginning but is then maintained at the same level until the horse has runners. Those who follow the second model tend to increase the fee more quickly when there is success, the front loaders don’t have the same need as they have

already got a better return on their investment.

Conclusion

It takes a long time for a stallion to find his level. Looking back over recent years it would have been hard to make a correct analysis of any stallion, even of Galileo, until there are five or six crops of foals on the ground. There are too many variables, and the market is always carried away by events, some of which turn out to have been random errors rather than the beginning of a pattern.

Under starters’ orders

T

HE landscape of British racing is changing again. On January 11, from the cold ashes of the short-lived venture at Great Leighs, a new racecourse will rise phoenix-like afresh with new owners, a new name, a new outlook. Chelmsford City is on the racing map. The roster of racecourses in Britain has been frequently updated in recent years, with the advent of Ffos Las in Wales, the short trajectory of Great Leighs in Essex, and the closure of Folkestone and Hereford at the end of 2012. Warwick has just discontinued Flat racing, Towcester has discarded a number of jump meetings to focus more firmly on the greyhound track being built on its infield. New racecourses are quite a rarity – before Ffos Las, the most recent new arrival was Taunton in the late 1920s – and the rebirth of the Great Leighs site as the rebranded Chelmsford City, which will become Britain’s third floodlit racecourse, is a significant event in this little world. Nothing is as straightforward as it might seem in racing, of course, and the incarnation of Chelmsford City – here we can consign the name of Great Leighs to history, curio value at quiz time – has not been welcomed in all corners of the industry owing to it being an All-Weather racecourse, the fifth such circuit in Britain (it would have been the sixth had Newcastle been permitted to dig up the grass of Gosforth Park and replace it with an artificial surface). Many perceive the continuing creep of All-Weather racing as detrimental to racing’s long-term health, it being seen as the lowest common denominator of the sport, poor prize-money, moderate horses, tiny crowds. Not everyone takes that view, however, not everyone sees that as the permanent default setting for racing on artificial surfaces. As you’d expect, Phil Siers, the managing director of Chelmsford City, is of that opinion, and his vision encompasses a brighter horizon. “A lot of effort has been put into this project. The point at which we find ourselves now has been a long time coming,” says Siers, pride at the revitalisation of the circuit,

The new British All-Weather racecourse at Chelmsford City is due to have its first meeting on January 11, 2015. Julian Smyth finds out how things are progressing

owned by bookmaker Fred Done and media partner Satellite Information Services, evident in his voice. “We want Chelmsford City to be the best artificial track in Europe, and among the top two or three in the world. This has been a labour of love, we wanted to build a racecourse that we and everyone in racing can be proud of.” Your reaction to those words will of course depend on which side of the fence you stand in regard to All-Weather racing, or even if you sit on that fence, but let’s push that aside for the moment and examine instead how far Done, Siers and their new racecourse have come in a short time. Great Leighs – three or four miles from Braintree, Essex, the county’s only racecourse, and almost three times as far from Chelmsford itself – opened for business with fanfare in April 2008, and closed for business without fanfare barely eight months later. The racing surface was widely praised by professionals, notably by Newmarket trainers, to whom it offered plenty given its location, but the infrastructure was criticised – the grandstand was uniquely on the inside of the circuit, unique in a bad way – and the racecourse soon went into administration and had its licence revoked by the BHA. Its owner John Holmes was later declared bankrupt. Attempts have since been made to relight

the flame, so to speak, but the BHA refused to grant the track any fixtures, effectively condemning it to years of redundancy. But Done, whose bookmaking chain Betfred is one of the “Big Four”, never forgot the white elephant mouldering just outside the M25 and purchased it in 2013. For 2015, with renewed promises and a new business model in place, the BHA has allotted 58 fixtures to the new track, a healthy start with the prospect of more to come as it balances an already bloated fixture list with the changing pattern of those fixtures, and a greater share for the All-Weather. “It’s a good start, a substantial number,” says Siers, while pointing out that it corresponds to a fixture a week, and admitting that he is eventually hoping for around twice that number. The BHA looks set for a spot more juggling. “Our bread-and-butter fixtures will be on Thursday night, but we’re also looking at staging fixtures at times that are not currently covered by the present fixture list. We’re thinking about Saturday mornings, potentially Sunday lunchtimes, periods when there are gaps in the schedules. We’re conscious that we have two audiences, the racecourse audience and the betting shop audience, and we want to serve them both.” It is Siers’s voice, but surely Done’s sentiments. And here is another spectre for those who see the wind of change as an ill wind, rattling at the door, upsetting those sheltering inside. Sure, bookmakers have owned racecourses before – Ladbrokes owned Lingfield during the 1970s and early 1980s, while the company played a substantial part in keeping Aintree safe from developers in the Red Rum years – but its estate has been limited to greyhound tracks until Done’s venture. There are understandable fears that a bookmaker-owned track would lead to a never-mind-the-quality feel-the-width situation whereby the dregs of the equine population turn out for a pittance purely to keep the betting shop customers punting, a living version of the cartoon racing that is served up several times an hour in every shop on every high street.

chelmsford city

We intend to offer substantial prize-money to attract high-class horses to Chelmsford City. We’re looking at offering three to four times the money available at Southwell or Kempton

78

www.internationalthoroughbred.net

Managing director Phil Siers

Siers has his rejection ready, and although it’s a rejection that must perforce be taken on trust, his words have the ring of authenticity about them, and he must know without acknowledging it that they will be used to trip him up if all does not come to pass as he suggests. His earlier comment about being in the top two or three worldwide may take time to be justified, but the foundations are being laid at the very start. “We intend to offer substantial prizemoney to attract high-class horses to Chelmsford City,” he says. “We’re looking at offering three to four times the money available at Southwell or Kempton, we don’t intend to do things on the cheap.”

H

e draws on statistics – he suggests that Arena Racing Company puts on average around £13,000 into each of the fixtures at its three All-Weather tracks, the Jockey Club injects £19,000 into each Kempton raceday - and then, like a Wild West cardsharp, pulls an ace from his hatband. “We’d be offering £42,000 a fixture,” he says, with the air of a man laying down an untrumpable card. That would, at the very least, go some way towards luring the high-class horses he speaks of to the flatlands of Essex, and would underpin the more ambitious plans Done and Siers have for Britain’s newest racecourse. Every new venture’s reach should exceed its grasp, but Chelmsford City is stretching the bounds in grand style. “We’re going by the Santa Anita model,” he says, and the eyes search the landscape for something approximating to the San Gabriel mountains, and the balmy heat of Los Angeles. Disappointed, we return to the admittedly intriguing potency of Siers’s American dream. “This is going to be a very large project. The plan is to build a turf track inside the All-Weather circuit, and hopefully have that ready for 2016. Chelmsford City will be the only track in Europe to boast floodlit turf and All-Weather courses. “It will help us try to fill the void in the European Pattern after the turf season finishes in November. We hope that will help us attract horses in the 100+ bracket instead of them going to Hong Kong and Dubai, especially if we can offer the prize-money. “We also want to install undersoil heating beneath the turf track – it’ll be a mile oval,


chelmsford city tight but not as tight as Chester, and with a decent safety limit. We think undersoil heating is doable. It won’t be a cheap solution, but we’re not looking for cheap solutions here.” Done’s £900m fortune will look after a lot of that, but one thing he has not had to reach into his pocket for is the racing surface itself, a Polytrack oval that was the main attraction for owners and trainers when the sign over the door read Great Leighs. Siers reckons it an excellent surface, says it was still in perfect condition when building work began elsewhere on the grounds, predicts that it will need no more than a light harrow to be just like brand-new. Indeed, several Dubai Carnival contenders worked on the surface this year, and Newmarket trainer John Gosden, who has long considered the track to be the best All-Weather surface in Britain, is looking forward to running horses there. “It’s a fantastic track, a great layout and I’ve always liked it,” he said in an interview for Betfred TV. “It will cater for a huge pool of horses here in Newmarket and the location couldn’t be better for us trainers.” One of racing’s numerous factions is already well on the way to being won over, then, although the paying public will still find the grandstand in the centre of the track when

We also want to install undersoil heating beneath the turf track – it’ll be a mile oval, tight but not as tight as Chester, and with a decent safety limit the course reopens in January. This is far from ideal, although Siers insists that it’s only part one of the refurbishment, and that longterm plans include a grandstand in a more conventional position on the outside, with the original stand given over to hospitality. Siers signs off with the trenchant riposte to critics that “anyone who knows Phil Siers and Fred Done will know that we will not fail in this”, ‘this’ being the transformation of an abandoned racecourse site into one of the wonders of the racing world. There are many factors in Chelmsford City’s favour – the trainers’ vote of confidence, the vast catchment area of population from north and east London and of Essex itself, the financial resources available to its owner, the ideals asserted by Siers – but whether or not you know Siers or Done, the potential downside is plain to see. No one expects the racecourse to expire

within eight months, as before, but our expectations may still be more than it can sustain. It is so important that Chelmsford City does not miss its mark, and four or five years down the line drift downwards into becoming just another repository of mediocrity, a humdrum home for low-rank horses watched by a handful of paying customers. Britain may welcome a new racecourse, but no one needs another example of the same old scene. We need Chelmsford City to be something better, to be different, to hint at a future for All-Weather racing, for racing, that moves us forward rather than miring us in a cycle of dissatisfaction. It’s a lot to ask of a racecourse, even one that wants to be like Santa Anita. For the second time, the racing community is looking to Essex to show the way.

Dundalk’s experience: green field building The reincarnation of defunct Great Leighs as vibrant Chelmsford City has been a particular feat of cohesion and construction, but it must be remembered that much of the infrastructure was already in place when Done signed on the dotted line. Compare this to the situation facing those charged with bringing Ireland’s first All-Weather racecourse into existence at Dundalk. “We started with a green field, nothing more,” says Dundalk CEO Jim Martin. “The old grandstands were knocked down, everything was levelled. All we had was a green field and a blueprint.” Dundalk had been in use as a jumps track until its closure in 2001, and would not reopen for six years, during which time Martin oversaw the construction of a greyhound circuit and a brand new racecourse. The trials and tribulations involved may make Siers and Done count their blessings. “We were given the go-ahead for the racecourse in 2006, and had exactly 12 months to build it all from scratch,” remembers Martin. “The first meeting was scheduled for August 26, 2007 – there it was in black and white – and I should say that certainly helped to focus everyone’s attention. It wasn’t easy, but it was do-able, and we did it.

I got a few new grey hairs out of it, sure, but they were worth it

“Part of the land we were building on was the old jumps’ track, and part was a bog that couldn’t be used for anything. Building an All-Weather track from the bottom up is rather like building a motorway, because you have to put in solid stone and concrete foundations. It was a major engineering job – the surface at the 5f start is 15ft above the original ground level. “The grandstand, the stable blocks, the other buildings, the entrance road, that was all going up as the circuit was being built. The foundations for the grandstand went down in nearmonsoon conditions – that’s one thing the boys at Chelmsford didn’t have to contend with, the Irish weather! – and there were many delays, but we managed to catch up the schedule later on.” The Polytrack has been down for seven years and Martin says they’ve never had a problem with it. That element of operations is all to come for the Chelmsford City crew, and Martin wishes them well, says he’s pleased they’re up and running. Dundalk has been a success, and Martin is proud of it. “Would I do anything differently if I had to build another one? No. We were well organised, we had no major hold-ups, we had a plan and stuck to it. I got a few new grey hairs out of it, sure, but they were worth it.”

nicking theory

Patrick Brain discusses and examines the pedigrees (using his own software) of the 24 stakes winners by Galileo out of Danehill mares in order to ask...

...when is a nick, in fact a nick?

Kind: has established a fine relationship with Galileo, but why is that?

I

n the early 1970s, for my sins I worked as an economic adviser to the Papua New Guinea government. To escape the relentless heat of the capital Port Moresby, on some Saturdays an Australian colleague and I would take his Toyota utility, “the ute”, and drive 30 miles or so along a winding clay road carved out of the mountains, to a pub run by a blind Australian lady called “Woody”, overlooking the spectacular Rouna Falls a thousand feet below. There we would spend the afternoon playing pool against the locals for a beer a

time, and participating in the book Woody ran on the Saturday’s Australian racing. My colleague was an avid student of pedigrees and would provide the tips for the afternoon. This became my introduction to the world of thoroughbred pedigrees. One Saturday in Woody’s pub Jason drew my attention to a horse called Lot, running in Melbourne. Lot, he told me, was by the imported stallion Bourbon Prince out of a mare by another import, Red Mars (Hyperion). Lot was unbeaten after a number of runs over hurdles (very much the poor relation to Flat horses in Australia), and was

having his first start on the Flat. Jason argued that what was impressive about his pedigree was not so much the quality of his sire and dam-sire, but his dam’s dam-sire, Nightmarch. Nightmarch had won Australia’s premier weight for age race, the Cox Plate, and a Melbourne Cup. Furthermore, his sire Night Raid was also sire of Australasia’s legendary champion, Phar Lap. Jason was adamant that breeders throughout the 200-odd years’ history of horseracing had been brainwashed into believing that horses inherited their ability through their sire-line. But, he insisted, such simplistic thinking was completely at odds with the presentational style of sale catalogues for yearlings in which a horse’s pedigree credentials concentrated exclusively on details of a yearling’s dam line. In my ignorance, so compelling were his arguments that I placed what was for me a sizeable wager with Woody on Lot, thinking he would start near favourite. Lot started at 66-1 and romped home. Woody did not have the cash to pay us out. Instead, she offered to pay us in cases of pink champagne, which we loaded onto the back of the “ute”. When we left Woody’s in the purple glow of the early evening, after sharing one of the cases with Woody and some of her guests, pink seemed to be the colour of the day, as the afternoon rain had turned the clay road to a pink, soapy skating rink. I still shudder at the memory of the 30mile return journey, with a steep ravine to our right, the habitat of some of the most venomous snakes in the world. My first lesson in pedigrees had been unforgettable. It is true that since horseracing’s early days, breeders have latched onto the notion that racing prowess is passed on predominantly through the sire line. As far as I am aware, no

nicking theory

...nine of the ten Group 1 winners have pedigrees in which the non-Danehill part of the mare’s pedigree appears to contribute at least as much as Danehill convincing explanation as to be has ever been forthcoming. Furthermore, springing directly from this belief is the concept of the “nick”, the positive interrelationship between a stallion and a compatible broodmare sire. I suppose it must be partly the simplicity of the theory that makes the nick so appealing to breeders. Partly also that, for want of anything better, the historical success of a stallion’s matings with particular broodmare sires gives stallion owners and breeders alike an easily understood starting point when it comes to identifying potential matings for their mares. It is impossible to speak against the positive inputs that “nicks” offer. In recent years, obvious examples have been Nureyev with Riverman mares, and Galileo with Danehill mares. Who can dispute the success of the mating that not only produced Frankel – by Galileo out of the Danehill mare Kind – but also Noble Mission, and a generation removed, Bullet Train, a son of Galileo’s sire, Sadler’s Wells. What is more, this Galileo / Danehill nick comination has produced no less than 24 (13 per cent) stakes winners from a total of 185 offspring of racing age. But still, despite such successes, I have not come across an explanation as to why nicks seem to work. Given this, I decided to develop software, it is taken nearly five years, to look deeper into the pedigrees of well-trumpeted nicks, extrapolating the pedigrees of a significant sample back eight generations. As a current example I chose the successful combination of Galileo with Danehill mares. With my initial pedigree lesson from my

www.internationalthoroughbred.net

Australian colleague engraved on my mind, I decided to research the extent that the bottom half of the mare’s pedigree, the part that is independent of the nick with Danehill, might have contributed to the ensuing successes of these matings with Galileo. The results have been startling. After a marathon of programming I was

able to apply the software to the pedigrees of the 24 stakes winners sired by Galileo out of mares by Danehill, courtesy of data available on the Racing Post website, supplied by Weatherbys. Though the software is complex, the concept I applied is really very simple. The programme identifies key ancestral clusters in the pedigree of Galileo, for up to eight generations, and then estimates the extent to which these are reinforced by (a) broodmare sire Danehill, and (b) the bottom half of the mare’s pedigree (i.e the non-Danehill 50 per cent). The two estimates are compared, to produce a figure I have termed “the relative contribution coefficient” (RCC). An RCC of 1 means that the bottom half of the mare’s pedigree reinforces Galileo’s key pedigree clusters just about equally to the reinforcements supplied by Danehill. The RCC might be viewed as a measure of the pedigree potential of the mating. Left, you can see the results I obtained for the RCC scores for Galileo’s 24 stakes winners out of Danehill mares. Nine of the ten Group 1 winners have pedigrees where the non-Danehill part of the mare’s pedigree appears to contribute at least as much as Danehill, and in the case of Golden Lilac over twice as much, with Frankel not far behind – hardly the ingredients of so-called nicks. I have performed similar studies with the produce of mares by other broodmare sires and it would appear conclusive that a genuine nick is a very rare creature indeed. Furthermore, invariably an RCC score well below 1 is indicative of a mating with poor pedigree potential. Ironically such matings have a pedigree structure more in keeping with a genuine nick, dominated by the broodmare sire. Weatherbys kindly provided me with their nicking report for Galileo. Danehill mares, obviously, top the list with the 24 black-type winners from 185 offspring of racing age (13 per cent). The sum for all mares bred to Galileo by broodmare sires with 10 or more racing age offspring, the total is 396 racing age offspring, of which 52 are black-type winners (13 per cent), exactly the same percentage as that with Danehill mares! So, when is a nick not a nick? If Disraeli did proclaim “there are lies, damned lies and statistics” I wonder if he had nicks in mind?

Tibesti

Machiavellian - Tropical (Green Desert)

Move In Time (black and pink) winning the Prix de l’Abbaye. The race has played a pivotal role in the development of both sides of his pedigree

M

onsieur Bond may never have run in the race himself, but the stallion is turning the Prix de l’Abbaye into a personal favourite after siring his second winner of the Group 1 sprint courtesy of Move In Time. The David O’Meara-trained gelding triumphed at 33-1 in Paris, following in the footsteps of his paternal half-sister Gilt Edge Girl in 2010. They hail from the stallion’s first and third crops. Three years later, Gilt Edge Girl was purchased for €550,000 by the Niarchos family’s Flaxman Holdings as part of the Paulynn dispersal at last year’s Goffs November Sale, a price tag many times in advance of the £17,000 she had cost her

trainer Clive Cox as a yearling. Move In Time was even more of a bargain buy costing only £14,000 at the blue-collar DBS St Leger Festival Yearling Sales in 2009. That the six-year-old has now netted his owners over £350,000 is the stuff on which racing dreams are made. Although highly tried as a four-year-old when he contested five consecutive Group 1s, Monsieur Bond did not win at higher than Group 2 level. He has carved out a solid stallion career producing speedy runners who often have plenty of class, but rarely hit the highest levels, his two l’Abbaye victors being his only Group 1 winners. As such, he was the ideal mate for the Machiavellian mare Tibesti, who never saw a racecourse herself, but hailed from a speedy family that gave much hope that she could

produce smart and fast runners. Bred by Gainsborough Stud, Tibesti made her own modest headlines when setting a new sale record at the 2005 edition of the DBS Lincoln Sales as an unraced three-yearold, offered as part of the draft from Mark Johnston’s yard. Paul Mason signed the ticket for her on behalf of owner Reg Bond at 68,000gns, a price far in excess of the day’s second mostexpensive lot, who sold for 42,000gns, stating at the time that the filly would head to stud for a tryst with her new owner’s stallion Monsieur Bond, then in his first season at stud. Having foaled a filly by Rock Of Gibraltar in 2007, Tibesti has since enjoyed an almost monogamous relationship with Monsieur Bond, her only outside visit being to Captain Gerrard, to whom she produced a colt in 2011. Her first visit to Monsieur Bond in 2007, then at Whitsbury Manor Stud, was the mating that yielded Move In Time. Move In Time’s success in the Prix de l’Abbaye is a rounding of a circle that began with his grand-dam, the Green Desert mare Tropical. Bred by The Sussex Stud, Tropical was sent into training in Ireland with Dermot Weld. She made an immediate impression when winning her maiden in a dead heat at Leopardstown. She quickly followed up and

then triumphed in the Shernazar Curragh Stakes (G3) by two and a half lengths, having also finished third in the Railway Stakes (G3). The application of blinkers did not achieve the desired effect when she could manage only sixth in the Phoenix Stakes (G1), and she rounded off the season with fourth in Listed company. The filly returned at three with some placed efforts in handicap company before returning to Pattern level to land the Listed Belgrave Stakes. That pleasing effort earned her a return to Group races and she duly impressed by winning the Phoenix Sprint Stakes and the Flying Five, both Group 3 races.

G

ainsborough Stud had already swooped to purchase her yearling half-brother by Royal Academy for Ff2,300,000 at the Deauville yearling sales that August, and such was the ease with which she landed the Flying Five that Tropical became part of a buying spree by Godolphin. The team bought the filly from the Sussex Stud the week before she was due to contest the Prix de l’Abbaye. So newly minted was the Godolphin operation then that Racehorses of 1993 went to great pains to reassure its readers that the filly would not necessarily be lost to

European racing as the new owners “the Dubai-based Godolphin Racing Syndicate… have runners over here”! Lining up at Longchamp, Tropical was third-favourite behind the three co-favourites and the flying filly Lochsong, who had landed the Nunthorpe Stakes that August. However the soft ground went against Tropical and she could show little, finishing fifth behind Lochsong, beaten over 7l. Tropical was part of the first group of Godolphin horses to winter in Dubai in 1994, under the care of Hilal Ibrahim, the first trainer employed by the fledgling operation. She returned to Britain in time to face Lochsong again in the Palace House Stakes (G3) at Newmarket in April, finishing in second, 3l behind her old rival. Two unplaced efforts at York followed, before Tropical returned to Weld and re-found winning ways, repeating her victory in the Flying Five (G3), before once again failing to fire behind Lochsong in the Prix de l’Abbaye. Tropical was promptly retired to paddocks, where she visited stallions with such diverse stamina profiles as Nashwan, Zafonic, Cadeaux Genereux and Daylami. It was with Sheikh Maktoum Al Maktoum’s Machiavellian that she enjoyed her greatest success, producing Tropical Star in 2000. Racing solely at Nad Al Sheba, the gelding notched up six victories including two Group 3 victories over 6f. A repeat mating to Machiavellian produced Tibesti two years later, although Tropical then proved barren when returned to the same sire. A year after Tropical was retired from racing, her half-sister scored a Group 3 victory at Longchamp. Named Shake The Yoke, the filly returned to the same venue on Arc day to be runner-up in the Prix Marcel Boussac (G1). She was also runner-up in the Poule d’Essai des Pouliches the following season before going on to score her first Group 1 success in the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot. She then earned two further top-level placings in the Prix du Moulin and the Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup at Keeneland. Tibesti may not have hit the heights of her siblings and her progeny have not yet come close to making the same price as she herself did in the sales ring – the most expensive sale to date is Doyouknowwhoiam, bought by Bryan Smart for £44,000 at DBS in 2010. However, agent Richard Frisby looks to have secured a real bargain, having paid only £17,000 for a full-sister to Move In Time at the DBS Premier Yearling Sales in August.

photo of the month: gravity matters Anxious moments as Andrea Atzeni and Pallasator have a disagreement ahead of the Qipco British Champions Long Distance Cup. Trainer Sir Mark Prescott looks on in a concerned fashion (still with cigar in mouth) and in the end the horse had to be walked to the start without his jockey on board. As Pallasator was running for race sponsors Qatar Racing, it would not have been a great start to the day for them if their son of Motivator had not lined up... The horse ran well to finish third, a length and three-quarters and a neck behind winner Forgotten Rules and Biographer, picking up his first Group-race black-type. He looks as though he will be a better horse again in 2015; Prescott will be hoping his pre-race behaviour improves too.
