first word

Too much to mention

September 8 and 9: the best weekend of European summer racing, writes Paul Haigh

E

uropean racing doesn’t often get more intense or more diverse than it did on the weekend of September 8-9. So much of major significance occurred that it’s impossible to do justice to it all. So first a few apologies to events and performances that are only going to be given a mention rather than the multiple paragraphs they deserve. In no particular order – because how can you grade them? – the apologies go to Laura Mongan for her superb achievement in becoming the first woman to train the winner of the world’s oldest Classic. In an era during which almost every great race goes to the big stables it’s very satisfying to see a small yard like the one she and her husband Ian run putting the big boys to flight. Yes, it’s quite reasonable to suggest it would never have happened if Idaho hadn’t taken the false step that dropped Seamie Heffernan on the turf, but comfortably though the odds-on favourite was making ground, he had yet to be asked for the effort that would have told us whether or not he was really going to get the trip. Harbour Law did, and George Baker, the tallest man in the weighing room, who has to waste everyday and very hard to do 9st1lb, gave him the perfect ride. Apologies to Frankie Dettori too for not making more of a fuss of the ride he gave Wicklow Brave to get the seven-year-old hurdler to win the Irish version of the Leger, a race which is open to all ages, and geldings too. Order Of St. George has looked the invincible stayer this season. Maybe there wasn’t much Ryan Moore could have done about it short of rushing him up to take on the front runner, but really Rule 1 in the leatherbound volume entitled Modern Tactical Riding reads: “Never give Frankie an easy lead”. Willie Mullins deserves an apology too. There are

Nobody could be found to disagree with the claim that this year’s Irish Champion was the best race in depth ever run in Ireland... it was the best race run in Europe this year

jumps fans who’ll insist he’s the best trainer in Ireland. How much he must have have enjoyed beating a Ballydoyle champion on the Flat. Apologies to the Arc trials. They don’t get the attention they used to, perhaps because people are getting used to the fact that they’re not real races but essentially preps. The Prix Vermeille used to be much more significant than it looked this year. Neither the Niel or the Foy looked of major interest, although we’ve made that mistake before particularly about the Niel in which this year the Japanese Derby winner just got home in what may have been, for him a calculated exercise gallop. The Moulin was won by Vadamos (a compliment to Ribchester) thanks largely to an enterprising ride from Vincent Cheminaud, almost certainly following to orders of the little general who trains the winner. Dozens of other apologies, although Aidan O’Brien won’t require one for the failure to dwell on a weekend that for him was much more “out” than “in”, even if Churchill does turn out to be the next in his production line of champions. There’s another subject that needs all the attention from here on, and that’s the Irish Champion Stakes. There used to be a common agreement that Dancing Brave’s Arc of 1986, the race that saw nine Group 1 winners in opposition, was the best quality in depth race ever run. Nobody could be found to disagree with the claim that this year’s Irish Champion was the best race in depth ever run in Ireland... it was the best race run in Europe this year. Maybe by the time the year’s ended we’ll have decided it was the best these 12 months have had to offer anywhere in the world. Any race in which a dual Derby winner doesn’t

Alamanzor produced an “extraordinary burst of speed” to win the Irish Champion Stakes. It was a “wonderful race”, but could the form be reversed?

start favourite has to be a good one, but this had the dual Derby winner, the dual Oaks winner, the last two winners of the Jockey-Club, the King George winner, The Breeders’ Cup Turf winner, the Prince of Wales’s Stakes winner and the Eclipse winner. In fact, the only outstanding horse in Europe missing from the field was Arc favourite, Postponed. Only eight Group 1 winners in all then after The Grey Gatsby, who downed Australia in 2013 was withdrawn, but, with the exception of Harzand’s pacemaker Ebidiyan, there wasn’t a horse in the field who could be dismissed out of hand before it began. Everyone with any interest in racing will have seen how it went by now and will no doubt have joined in the thrill at the extraordinary bursts of speed shown by Found, and then more particularly by the winner, this year’s Prix du Jockey-Club victor, Almanzor. It looked the perfect race, the kind that proved as good in reality as it had been in anticipation. All the post-race interest was concentrated on whether Almanzor would go for the Arc for which bookies predictably slashed his price, although trainer Jean Claude Rouget seemed to think the British Champion Stakes might be a more sensible alternative with the 1m4f championship event being left to his stablemate La Cressoniere. But should the victory be taken at face value? Is Almanzor the champion he seemed to have proved himself to be? Or is there reason to doubt the form? A couple of races earlier in the Matron Stakes we had seen what seemed a freakish performance from Alice Springs, who routed in Qemah a filly she couldn’t threaten at Ascot or Deauville. Qemah apparently ran to something close to her best form, beaten into third by Persuasive.

www.internationalthoroughbred.net

If a run such as Alice Springs’ occurs once, you think it’s a phenomenon. If it happens twice, you scratch your head. If it happens three times, it’s track bias

At Leopardstown, Alice Springs, ten wide off the turn and all the way up the straight, treated her with contempt. In the Champion Stakes itself Ryan Moore rode what seemed to have been a perfect ground-saving race on the favourite Minding, slipping up on the rail to find a gap that apparently gave the great filly every chance. But Minding, like all the rest, had no answer at all when Found and, particularly, Almanzor came flying down the wide outside. In a handicap that followed, a horse of just ordinary ability, unless the trainer is a genius at concealing it, did exactly the same thing, completely outpacing his opponents by following the same wide route to the line. Even in the one race that was won by the horse sticking to the rail, the excellent mare Zhukova found her margin of victory rapidly reduced once the favourite US Army Ranger had been pulled out, not as wide as Alice Springs or Almanzor admittedly, but well clear of the rail. If a run like Alice Springs’ occurs once, you think it’s a phenomenon. If it happens twice, you scratch your head. If it happens three times, it’s track bias. It’s a pity to take any of the gloss off what was certainly a wonderful race to watch, but here’s one person (who backed the winner in case you’re wondering) who’s sure the ground was softer the closer you got to the Leopardstown rail and who wouldn’t be at all surprised to see that form turned round if ever the principals meet anywhere else. Oh. And apologies to the Qipco Irish Champion Stakes for that remark. But you have to say what you think.

the news

New stallions to stud for 2017 Adaay and Kodi Bear become the first sons of Kodiac to retire to stud, Bobby’s Kitten goes to Lanwades, while Ajaya is to stand at Rathbarry and Mehmas at Tally-Ho Stud

N

ew stallion announcements have begun in earnest this autumn with some new influences from both the US and Ireland. Bobby’s Kitten, a Grade 1-winning son of champion US sire Kitten’s Joy, is heading to Lanwades, while leading Irish stallion Kodiac is to become a sire of sires: Whitsbury Manor Stud has secured, in partnership with owner Shadwell Stud, the services of his son Adaay, a dual Group 2 winner, while Kodi Bear, winner of the Group 2 Celebration Mile, heads to Rathbarry Stud. The same Irish stud is also to stand 2015’s Gimcrack Stakes (G2) winner Ajaya, a son of Invincible Spirit (a half-brother to Kodiac), while Mehmas, a dual Group 2-winning son of Acclamation, who finished second last time out to Churchill in the Group 1 National Stakes, retires to Tally-Ho Stud. Third in the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Turf Juvenile, Bobby’s Kitten went on to win the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint as a three-year-old. He will be the first son of US champion Turf sire Kitten’s Joy to retire to stud in Europe. “We are delighted and proud here at Lanwades to have acquired such an exciting stallion prospect,” said Kirsten Rausing, owner and general manager of Lanwades. “A specialist miler, he had the speed to beat No Nay Never as a three-year-old in the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint. He will, of course, provide a fantastic outcross opportunity for the majority of European mares.” Bobby’s Kitten’s third dam is a half-sister to sire and champion Theatrical, and is dam to the Grade 1 winner Wild Event and Forbidden Apple Adaay was a dual winner at two, took the 6f Listed Carnarvon Stakes first time out at three before winning the 6f Group 2 Sandy Lane Stakes at Haydock, a race in which he ended the five-race unbeaten sequence of the brilliant sprinter Limato. After a mid-division effort in the Commonwealth Cup (G1), he then went on to show his versatility by winning the Group 2

Bobby’s Kitten: boasts a Grade 1 success

Hungerford Stakes over 7f. Ed Harper, director of Whitsbury Manor Stud, commented: “We are very grateful to be given the opportunity to stand Adaay in partnership with Shadwell Stud. “He was a classy and precocious individual who will ideally suit commercial breeders. His sire Kodiac has risen up through the ranks very quickly, so to be standing a top-class son is extremely exciting.” Kodi Bear won four of his 13 starts for trainer Clive Cox, including the 7f Listed Winkfield Stakes at two, and the Group 3 Sovereign Stakes and Group 2 Celebration Mile at three. He was also runner-up in the Group 1 Dewhurst Stakes on his fourth outing. His dam Hawattef has produced seven other winners and is from the family of Russian Hope, Russian Cross and triple Group 1-winning miler Esoterique. “Kodi Bear was a pleasure to train and showed a lot of class right from the beginning,” said Cox. “He was an exceptional winner of the Sovereign Stakes and confirmed that form when winning the Celebration Mile at Goodwood in tremendous style. “His temperament and appetite for racing are first class and I’m sure he’ll pass on these qualities to his offspring.” Ajaya, winner of the 2015 Gimcrack Stakes and by leading stallion Invincible Spirit, is to join Kodi Bear at Rathbarry Stud. He was

bred and raced in partnership by Saleh Al Homaizi and Imad Al Sagar. He was trained by William Haggas and, after finishing second first-time-out, Ajaya came home in a bunch after being stoppped in his run in the Norfolk Stakes (G2), took his maiden at York, finished second in the Prix Robert Papin (G2) before beating subsequent Group 1 winner Ribchester in the Gimcrack. He was also fourth in the Middle Park Stakes (G1). Tony Nerses, racing manager for Homaizi and Al Sager, said: “We’re delighted that Ajaay will stand at Rathbarry Stud, an operation with a long history of developing successful stallions. He’s a well-bred and talented son of Invincible Spirit and we look forward to supporting him with our mares.” Ajaya is the first foal out of Nessina, a sister to Tantina, the dam of this season’s first-crop sire Bated Breath as well as Group 1 winner and young sire Cityscape. It is also the further family of champion Australian sire Redoute’s Choice. Tally-Ho Stud has purchased 50 per cent of Mehmas, a dual Group 2-winning son of Acclamation, from owner Al Shaqab Racing. He is from the family of the Group 3-winning, Group 1-placed Blue Monday, the champions Luso and Warrshan, as well as of the Group 1-placed pair of Needle Gun and Cloud Castle. It is also the extended family of the Poule d’Essai des Pouliches (G1) and Prix de Diane (G1) winner Avenir Certain. After winning over 5f on his debut, he finished second in the Listed National Stakes and the Group 2 Coventry Stakes. This summer also saw him win the Group 2 July Stakes and the Group 2 Richmond Stakes, but perhaps his best performance came in September when second behind Churchill in the Group 1 National Stakes at The Curragh. Khalifa Al Attiya, general manager of Al Shaqab Racing, added: “Mehmas has given his excellency Sheikh Joaan Al Thani a lot of pleasure this season as he always ran his heart out and we will now look forward to seeing how he performs at Tally-Ho Stud.”

the news

Aga Khan Stud’s Linamix dies in France at the age of 29 French sire Linamix, a successful racehorse, sire of 14 Group 1 winners, sire of sires and an influential broodmare sire, has died at the Aga Khan Studs. He was 29 years

of age and had retired from active stallion duties in 2007. The son of Mendez was bred and raced by Jean-Luc Lagardère, and trained for him by Francois Boutin. He won the Prix La Rochette at two and the Prix de Fontainebleau and Poule d’Essai des Poulains at three, the same season he finished second in the Prix Jacques le Marois, Prix du Moulin and Champion Stakes. At the end of his racing career in 1991 he

retired to Haras du Val Henry in Normandy and quickly established himself as a smart stallion, producing eight stakes performers for his owner in his first crop, including Prix Jacques le Marois heroine Miss Satamixa. The Aga Khan Studs bought Linamix upon the death of Lagardère. His best runners include Sagamix, winner of the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, the two Poule d’Essai des Poulains heroes Slickly and Vahorimix, as well as Prix Ganay winner

least we had minimal drying to do. We managed, under the banner of Porchester Farms, to pick up some rosettes at Newbury show. September is the month when most roads start to lead to the Arc meeting. This year it takes place in Chantilly, the spiritual home of French racing and training, and the draw and terrain may produce more hard luck stories than at Longchamp. Postponed is the rightful favourite, but Jean-Claude Rouget holds a strong hand with La Cressoniere and the recent Irish Champion winner, Almanzor: one owned outright by Antonio Caro and the other in partnership with Gerard AugustinNormand. Rouget, from his base at Pau under the Pyrenees, seems certain to win the trainers’ championship for the second time. Almanzor has certainly put his sire Wootton Bassett on the map from only 21 foals in his first crop. He looked outstanding coming from last to first under Christophe Soumillon at Leopardstown. He may, however, go for the Qipco Champions Stakes at Ascot and stick to 1m2f. That race promises to be a great

Sir Prancealot, standing at €5,000, has had a stellar year and has a commanding lead in winners and races; he is another feather in the cap of Tally-Ho Stud

A

s often happens in our climate, a prolonged spell of wet weather is often followed by a long spell of dry, sunny and even unusually hot weather. This was cut short by some drastic thunderstorms and nearby Newbury had 74mm of rain overnight before its September meeting. Surprisingly, racing was able to go ahead and the main casualty was the flooding of Newbury rail station. At Kingsclere, seven miles away, we missed the worst of the rain and only had 27mm! Amazingly, my favourite weather app, the Norwegian weather app YR, predicted the rainfall! However, Richard Osgood, Newbury’s clerk of the course, also uses the same app. He revealed, when I bumped into him at the Newbury Show on the Sunday, that the mammoth rainfall was not predicted by YR! Still, the lack previous rain and a forecast of “some” rain (which precluded watering) meant the course was able to take the deluge. Our harvest, like many others, lacked good yields and quality but at

contest as the decision to run it on the inner track should mean the course is less likely to be rain affected. If it is a success then Fillies’ and Mares race and Long Distance Cup could take place there in future. The first-season sires’ list has reached an interesting stage with Frankel beginning a surge and has plenty of maiden winners about to try their luck in better races. Sir Prancealot, standing at €5,000, has had a stellar year and has a commanding lead in winners and races; he is another feather in the cap of Tally-Ho Stud. Four Australian-breds – Foxwedge, Elzaam, Helmet and Sepoy – are vying with Power for the next places. Both Helmet and Sepoy have done far better in the northern-hemisphere than they have started down under. The Sepoys, in particular, had been slightly slower in coming to hand, but many of their trainers hold them in high regard. Some time ago I did some research on the Aga Khan’s stud book which substantiated my theory that often the best value when buying foals or yearlings were the early ones from the mare. Part of my reasoning was that

New Japanese “Road to the Derby” series

Linamix

Neither of the US presidential candidates possesses the “calm dignity” of Barack Obama: it’s an interesting time

there is less competition from people with successful siblings. The Aga’s figures were confirmed in a talk by Claire Curry at a forum at The National Stud last September. Her figures for Juddmonte mares show 19 Group 1 winners amongst first foals, 18 from the second crop and 21 from the third. After the sixth foal the successful black-type winners tail off rapidly.

These figures are all the more surprising when one considers that many first foals can be quite small. It has become increasingly difficult to ignore politics this year. After Brexit, Europe will have to face up to the difficulties presented by our exit and the weaknesses of its own position. France and Germany will be facing complicating and, possibly, divisive

elections next year. The refugee situation looks unlikely to be resolved, while on the other side of the Atlantic we have a titanic battle between two presidential candidates who will find it very difficult to measure up to the calm dignity and powerful oratory of the departing President, Barack Obama. We are facing uncertain times.

Churchill Downs and the Japan Racing Association have created a series of races called “Japan Road to the Kentucky Derby” to be staged in Japan. The winner will be qualified to run in the Kentucky Derby The series includes two Dirt races over a mile at Tokyo racecourse: the Cattleya Sho for two-year-olds on November 26 and the Hyacinth for three-year-olds in early 2017. A position in the 143rd running of the $2 million Kentucky Derby on May 6, 2017 will be awarded to the horse who accrues the most points. Points awarded to the top four finishers in the Cattleya Sho will be 40-16-8-4, while the Hyacinth will carry a point value of 50-20-10-5. The points were structured to avoid an automatic qualifier for the winner of one particular race. “All of us at Churchill Downs are thrilled to partner with the Japan Racing Association to create this exciting new series to provide an entry in the Kentucky Derby for a horse from Japan,” said CDI president and chief operating officer Bill Mudd. “Horseracing in Japan is a tremendously popular sport. The competition is world-class and features some of the most accomplished runners in the world. This series provides a path for the top three-year-old in the country to participate in the ‘greatest two minutes in sports’. ” The first Japan-based horse to compete in the Kentucky Derby was Ski Captain, who finished 14th in 1995. Lani finished ninth in last year’s race having qualified by winning the UAE Derby (G2). He went on to finish fifth in the Preakness (G1) and third in the Belmont (G1). “I am very pleased to be able to launch the Japan Road to the Kentucky Derby’in partnership with Churchill Downs Inc.,” said Masayuki Goto, president and chief executive officer of the Japan Racing Association.

ummer is just about over – and we’re back in full swing as far as the yearling sales are concerned. Arqana opened the dance followed by what I consider to be just about the best value-formoney yearling sale in Europe: the German yearling sale at Baden-Baden. Admittedly, being from the fatherland myself, I might be a little bit biased, but what’s not to like about a sale where it’s just about always sunny (Baden-Baden is situated in the Rhine valley – statistically Germany’s warmest region) and where you can find not only some of the best sausages and beer on any European sales ground, but also some of the cheaper Group 1 winners on offer as yearlings?  My favourite farm alone has offered nine subsequent individual Group 1 winners, who were sold for an average price of less than €50,000! Fair enough, it takes a bit of getting to grips with a slightly different shape of horse and you might want to be a little adventurous pedigree-wise rather than stick with the big names. If not, check that the vendors of your star horse aren’t richer than your buyers, otherwise a cheap-and-cheerfulventure can turn into a game of high reserves and frustrated wanna-be buyers very quickly. Fortunately – or unfortunately (that depends on which side of the fence you sit) – in Germany quite a few of the sellers with fancier-bred horses are owner-breeders who can afford to take a horse home and put it into training if they think the price is not right. And they will. That said, there was very little of it happening this year: plenty of horses changed owners for good money, keeping vendors and buyers happy. But I wouldn’t be surprised if the best horse of this year’s crop yet again is to come out of the less obvious horses that were on offer.    Osarus – in the south of France – was dealt a difficult hand this year in terms of weather. Generally known for that “je ne sais quoi” beach-feeling complete with oyster and rosé wine tastings in baking sunshine and a bit of yearling selling thrown in on the side, we all found ourselves rather

ill equipped facing a deluge of sideways rain that didn’t really stop until the second day of the sale. Personally, I thought both catalogue and individuals on offer were better than in previous years of this relatively young sale. Some of vendors of the higher-priced yearlings had opted for the “a big fish in a little pond” approach and were handsomely rewarded, though the overall figures were slightly down on last year. This might have been partly owed to the weather, but also due to the fact that some of the bigger players simply weren’t there this year. Why is anyone’s guess. But there has been a conspicuous absence of some of the usual big-time buyers at all the yearling sales so far this year – John Ferguson did not buy at Arqana, Coolmore and Blandford Boodstock were not present at Baden-Baden, while Jean-Claude Rouget et al did not go to La Teste. I am not sure what to make of this just yet – and the reasons could all be very different and may not be anything of concern. On a positive note, it does leave room for new faces to come to the fore, surely that’s a good thing! Talking about conspicuous absences though: the same could be said for most of the races during the day of Arc trials in Chantilly in September. While I am sure that we have seen worthy winners of those trials in Makahiki, Left Hand and Silverwave, the sheer lack of numbers of runners in just about all of those races takes away a little bit of the excitement I’d like to feel about them. It’s such a shame – it would have been the perfect opportunity for any potential runner on Arc weekend to get a feel of the track Meanwhile, the Irish Champion Stakes assembled a full field of stellar performers. And what a race we were treated to by Almanzor, it was goose-bump material!  And, of course, there’s Postponed and La Cressoniere waiting the wings too. I can’t wait for the first Sunday in October and the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe. There might be plenty of “sexier” races these days, but for me the Arc remains the holy grail of thoroughbred racing.

Both horses were owned by Leopold de Rothschild. Pillion owned by Anthony de Rothschild was the last horse trained at Palace House to win an English Classic, the 1,000 Guineas in 1926

Palace House: open for business After BEING IN THE planning for over 10 years, fund raising for much of that and developing for just over two, The National Heritage Centre at the renovated Palace House and stables in Newmarket opened for a “soft launch” in September. The site celebrates the town’s status as an historic home of horseracing and sporting art. It is now the home to three charities – the National Horseracing Museum, the National Art Gallery of British Sporting Art Trust and the Retraining of Racehorses (ROR) – and all have combined to bring this historic site back to life. Visitors have the chance to tour the museum and understand the development of horseracing in Britain to the global sport it is today, view sporting art from 1700 through the ages, and watch retired racehorses being put through their retrained paces by the ROR team in preparation for their new roles. It is also hoped that the centre will form a major focal point for the local community, as well as become a hub for Discover Newmarket, a partnership between major organisations in the town looking to develop the Newmarket experience for visitors and tourists. Tattersalls hosts the first temporary exhibition at Palace House entitled “Selling Champions, Tattersalls at 250” in celebration of the company’s 250th anniversary. The exhibition will run until January 8, 2017 and will feature paintings, photographs and film. To visit: The National Heritage Centre costs £16.50 and for children (5-16) £9.60, and one entry gives a pass that is vaild for repeat visits for one year.

A French champion in Ireland, the first female trainer of a St Leger winner, a new Galileo juvenile superstar: it all happened on the first weekend in September, reports Sue Montgomery

Oui are the Champions! T he anticipation had suggested that though the Irish Champion Stakes field included eight individual winners of 15 top-level prizes, the sharp end would be a showdown between the winners of this year’s Derby and Oaks, Harzand and Minding. As it turned out, a Classic hero did indeed come to the fore, but it was the pride of France, Almanzor, rather than Ireland’s own. In winning the Prix du Jockey-Club at Chantilly in June, Almanzor had looked a champion to local eyes and transferred his reputation to a wider stage at Leopardstown. The Jean-Claude Rouget-trained colt occupied last place for most of the 1m2f contest as Success Days and Harzand’s hare Ebediyn took their ten rivals along at a searching gallop, and had only one behind him as New Bay and Highland Reel took over off the final bend.  Almanzor had to circle the field into the home straight, but once Christophe Soumillon had him balanced and running he

produced a stunning display. The high-class four-year-old Found, another to come from off the pace, had quickened past New Bay before the final furlong but hard though she tried to fend off Almanzor’s powerful finishing swoop, the three-year-old was three-quarters of a length in charge at the line. The pair’s stirring duel through the last 200 yards took them nearly 3l clear of Minding, whose passage could have been more straightforward, with New Bay, last year’s Jockey-Club winner, doing best of those who raced prominently. My Dream Boat, who had beaten Found in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes at Royal Ascot, was just behind him in fifth, in front of close-packed Moonlight Magic, Highland Reel and Harzand. Almanzor was the first French-trained winner of Ireland’s premier all-aged contest since another Jockey-Club winner, Suave Dancer, 25 years previously. The €712,500 purse provided Rouget with a first success in Ireland on his first

Rouget was full of praise for Soumillon’s tactics: “I told him only one word – relax – which he did beautifully in behind. When your horse is relaxed, you can finish. And afterwards Christophe told me it was quite an easy race for Almanzor.”

Almanzor has won seven of his nine races, his only defeats coming on bottomless ground in the Criterium International at Saint-Cloud last November, and when a close third to Dicton on his return to action in the Prix de Fontainebleau at Chantilly in April.  His next option is either the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, for which his Irish performance promoted him to second favourite behind Postponed, or the Champion Stakes at Ascot, with Rouget favouring the shorter contest. His team also have Arc third favourite La Cressonniere, like Almanzor owned by

Harzand’s disappointing display at Leopardstown can be excused – the Epsom and Irish Derby hero finished sore after being struck into behind at some point during the race, and was eased from second spot in the Arc market. But if his owner the Aga Khan was to find any consolation on the day, it may have been in the part his breeding operation played in Almanzor’s production.  Almanzor is from the first crop of high-

Harbour Law decends from the Oppenheimer family of Ingozi and EP Taylor Stakes winner Miss Keller, and is sire Lawman’s fifth Group 1 winner

class two-year-old Wootton Bassett, who had his day of days in the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardère, and was bred at the Iffraaj horse’s base, the de Chambure family’s Haras d’Etreham near Bayeux. He is also the first produce of his unraced dam Darkova, a daughter of Maria’s Mon who was culled by the Aga Khan as a three-yearold with a €16,000 price tag. She is out of 1m4f Chantilly Listed winner Darkara, a Halling half-sister to the dam of top-class miler Darjina. It is also the family of another Jockey-Club winner in Darsi. Almanzor relegated the gallant Found to successive second places in the Irish Champion Stakes; she was beaten by Golden Horn in 2015. It was the ninth Group 1 runner-up spot for the daughter of Galileo, whose earnings of nearly £2.5 million are split almost exactly between her win and place money. Her next assignment is the Arc, in which she was an impeded ninth last year, the only time in 18 races she had missed a top three spot.  Her trainer Aidan O’Brien was rightly proud of both Found, an old hand at gritting her teeth against top-class colts, and Minding, who was taking on male company for the first time. But, despite their bold efforts, and Group 1 wins for Alice Springs in the Matron Stakes and exciting two-year-old Churchill in the National Stakes, it was a somewhat frustrating time at Doncaster, Leopardstown and The Curragh for the champion British and Irish trainer.

His 29 runners at the three meetings included ten favourites, of whom nine were beaten, three at odds-on. He had just the two above-named victories, but eight runners-up, of whom all bar Found went down by half a length or less. But it may by now be safe for the Ballydoyle yard cat to come out of hiding.

Harbour breaks the Law

The shortest-priced loser was Order Of St George turned over at 1-7 in the Irish St Leger. The most dramatic, though, was Idaho, a 4-6 shot to give the County Tipperary team a fifth St Leger, after Leading Light in 2013, Scorpion (2005), Brian Boru (2003) and Milan (2001). Despite his fine record in the oldest Classic, it has not always been a lucky race for O’Brien; Camelot’s bid for the Triple Crown was controversially thwarted by Encke in 2012 and Bondi Beach came off second-best in a barging match with Simple Verse last year.  But Idaho, third and second to Dermot Weld-trained Harzand in his two Derbies earlier in the year, took ill-fortune to a new level. Travelling strongly behind the leaders early in the straight, he stumbled and jinked, giving Seamie Heffernan no chance of staying in the saddle.  Idaho had trounced his stablemate Housesofparliament in the Great Voltigeur Stakes, and given that Housesofparliament

went on to finish a close third at Doncaster, it does not seems unreasonable to assume that the favourite would have prevailed. Heffernan, happily pretty much unscathed, thought so. “He was cantering. It was a bloody disaster,” was his summation. With Idaho out of the game, it was 22-1 shot Harbour Law who proved the beneficiary, and though he cannot yet be rated highly he provided a satisfying series of landmarks. The Lawman colt was a first Classic and top-level success for Laura Mongan who, with husband Ian, runs a 20-horse yard in Epsom. He was the first Classic winner trained in the home of the Derby, a once-thriving centre, since John Sutcliffe sent out Right Tack to take the 1969 2,000 Guineas. He was a first Classic for rider George Baker, who had previously taken top prizes on Thistle Bird (Pretty Polly Stakes 2014) and Seal Of Approval (British Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes 2013), and a second feature staying event of the season for him, after the Lonsdale Stakes at York on Quest For More.  The St Leger is the oldest (first run in 1776), longest (an extended mile and three-quarters) and toughest (with its uncompromising half-mile-plus finishing straight) of the five Classics. And although Harbour Law had not won above handicap level before the latest edition of the Doncaster showpiece, he was one of the few in the field with already proven stamina for the demanding test.

uk racing He had shown himself a progressive young stayer when a close second in the 2m Queen’s Vase at Royal Ascot and on Town Moor produced another asset, determination. It took him every yard of the distance to get his head in front, galvanised by Baker to collar Ventura Storm and Housesofparliament in the last few strides. The trio, covered by less than a length and none giving an inch, pulled 10l clear of trailblazing Muntahaa, with Sword Fighter fifth. Harbour Law, nicknamed Arnie at home because of his size, did not appear in public until March this year, when runner-up in a Lingfield maiden. “It just shows,” said Mongan, the first woman to train a St Leger winner, “that if you have the right ammunition, and a great team at home, anyone can do it. The horse put in a really professional performance; all Harbour Law has done this year is mature and grow up and he’s just very exciting, for now and for the future.”  Harbour Law’s owners Nick and Jackie Cornwell cannot be put in the same bracket as the Coolmore partners, the Aga Khan or the Arab batallions, but with a house in Sandbanks, two farms in Northampton and

...all Harbour Law has done this year is mature and grow up and he’s just very exciting, for now and for the future bloodstock interests of some 60 head at their breeding and pre-training base at Whitsbury, they are not among the country’s smallest operators either. They acquired Harbour Law as an unraced two-year-old for £30,000 at last year’s Goffs UK London Sale at the Orangery in Kensington and their pride and joy, who demonstrated his progress by turning the tables on his last two conquerors Sword Fighter and Housesofparliament, is likely to have a Cup campaign next year.  Although Harbour Law’s Doncaster success took his sire Lawman into new distance territory, it was a full turn of the wheel for his distaff family – 40 years earlier his fifth dam African Dancer had won the Park Hill Stakes over the St Leger course.

Ground-breaking: the St Leger-winning trainer Laura Mongan with her jockey George Baker

Harbour Law was 12-year-old Lawman’s fifth top-level winner after Just The Judge (Irish 1,000 Guineas, EP Taylor Stakes), Most Improved (St James’s Palace Stakes), Marcel (Racing Post Trophy) and Law Enforcement (Gran Criterium), who all produced their best form at a mile. Lawman, based at Ballylinch in County Kilkenny, is by the sprinter Invincible Spirit, and in winning the Prix du Jockey-Club became that horse’s only Group 1 winner over as far as 1m2f.  The St Leger hero is the second Classic victor in as many years produced at Anthony Oppenheimer’s Hascombe & Valiant Stud after Golden Horn. But, unlike the Derby winner, who raced for his breeder, Harbour Law was sold on. Both colts were offered as yearlings in Newmarket and failed to make their reserves – Golden Horn at 190,000gns and Harbour Law at 24,000gns.  Harbour Law’s dam Abunai, a three-time juvenile winner, was culled for 15,500gns when her subsequent celebrity son was sevenmonths old and her only winner had been in Hungary. Her then-yearling Moheet, who left Hascombe for 41,000gns and was traded back as a breezer for 800,000gns, finally got her off the mark as a two-year-old.  The Pivotal mare – from the Oppenheimer family descended from 1949-foaled foundation matron Stop Your Tickling, grand-dam of African Dancer – is one of nine winners from Listed scorer Ingozi, the best being EP Taylor Stakes winner Miss Keller. Ingozi, by Warning, is out of Inchmurrin, who was one of the best filly milers of her generation and also an excellent broodmare. All her eight runners won; the best was another smart miler in Inchinor who, as a stallion before his early death, was responsible for such as Notnowcato (Eclipse Stakes, now an emerging jump sire), Cape Of Good Hope (top-class sprinter) and Lawman’s half-sister Latice, winner of a French Oaks.

Alice springs to a second Group 1 victory

With the notable exception of The Gurkha, the Ballydoyle three-year-old colts have not really passed muster this season. The fillies, though, are a different matter, and Alice Springs gave the operation its eighth Group 1 prize of 2016 in that division in the Matron Stakes, producing a devastating change of gear to leave progressive Persuasive

Alice Springs wins the Matron Stakes: O’Brien’s distaff team continues to lead the way for Ballydoyle

and Almanzor’s stablemate Qemah bobbing in her wake. After winning the Falmouth Stakes, Alice Springs had been unlucky when third to Qemah in the Coronation and found her wheels spinning on loose ground behind the same rival in the Prix Rothschild. With The Gurkha sidelined, the Galileo filly may have her crack at colts in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes or the Breeders’ Cup Mile or – as a typical hardy, busy O’Brien distaff inmate – both.  One Classic winner found redemption at Leopardstown, another at Donnie. At the Irish venue, the Irish 2,000 Guineas winner Awtaad bounced back in the Group 2 Boomerang

Zhukova furthered her credentials as a potential Group 1 performer with the Fillies & Mares Stakes now on her radar

Simple Verse bravely hunted down Pretty Perfect in the Park Hill Stakes. She goes to Ascot next

Stakes after defeats in the St James’s Palace Stakes won by Galileo Gold and in The Gurkha’s Sussex Stakes. The Kevin Prendergast-trained son of Cape Cross cleared away from Custom Cut and Hit It A Bomb and has a return to the top level in the QE II pencilled in. Simple Verse had a tough time in beating Bondi Beach a head in last year’s St Leger and on her return to Town Moor for the Group 2 Park Hill Stakes once again found one of the Ballydoyle brigade in her way. But she called on all her racing heart to run down Pretty Perfect, who was still 3l clear at the furlong mark, to score by a neck.  Twelve months ago Simple Verse, trained by Ralph Beckett for Qatar Racing, followed up on Champions Day at Ascot in the Fillies & Mares Stakes; this time at Ascot she will step up in distance, rather than step back, with her target the Long Distance Cup.

A third Enterprise Stakes win for Weld

In following in the hoofprints of Fascinating Rock and Free Eagle to give Dermot Weld a hat-trick in the Group 3 Enterprise Stakes, Zhukova furthered her credentials as a potential Group 1 performer, with the Fillies & Mares Stakes now on her radar. The lightly-raced Fastnet Rock four-yearold, out of Weld’s homebred Irish 1,000 Guineas winner Nightime, accounted for Success Days and Found at The Curragh in April, and then beat Pretty Perfect 7l in the Blue Wind at Naas a month later. Post-race with jockey Oisin Murphy

uk racing She only had to be pushed out to see off the O’Brien pair, the Derby runner-up US Ranger and Bondi Beach. Last year, Order Of St George’s runaway victory in the Irish St Leger enabled him to challenge Gleneagles and Highland Reel as the best of the Ballydoyle colts.  He came to this year’s edition of the race

as reigning staying champion, undefeated in six runs, including the Ascot Gold Cup, since going under by a short-head to Bondi Beach in The Curragh Cup in June last year. But, given a huge amount of ground to make up on front-running Wicklow Brave, he failed to make it seven in a row. The winner, a seven-year-old who had won

the County Hurdle at the 2015 Cheltenham Festival, was a first top-level Flat prize for the champion NH trainer Willie Mullins. The gelding, heading for the Melbourne Cup, is by Beat Hollow, who stands under the dual-purpose banner at Ballylinch and also has Group 1 winners Beaten Up and Proportional on his Flat CV.

Churchill and Intricately landmark wins for Galileo and the O’Brien family

Head to head: Intricately, near side, just gets the better of Hydrangea in the Moyglare Stud Stakes, the two sons of O’Brien, trainer Joseph and jockey Donnacha, beating their father to claim their first Group 1 successes

T

here were eyecatching juvenile performances at Doncaster from the William Haggas-trained Rivet, a son of Fastnet Rock who won the Group 2 Champagne Stakes by a decisive enough head from Thunder Snow (and was one of eight winners at the meeting for Andrea Atzeni), and from Simple Verse’s stablemate Rich Legacy, a daughter of Holy Roman Emperor who rallied well to see off Grecian Light in the Group 2 Rockfel Stakes. But the best from the youngest generation was seen at The Curragh where Churchill gave O’Brien his 11th success in Ireland’s premier juvenile contest, the National Stakes. The Galileo colt had a brief tussle with fine yardstick Mehmas, winner of the July and Richmond Stakes, but ultimately asserted his class and superior stamina to score by more than 4l. He was a 60th individual top-level winner worldwide for his sire (a sequence that began in 2003 with Nightime), and the 16th of 2016.  O’Brien’s previous National Stakes winners have included subsequent Classic heroes Desert King, King Of Kings, George Washington, Mastercraftsman, Power and Gleneagles and Churchill

– out of the Storm Cat mare Meow, a daughter of Cheveley Park Stakes heroine Airwave – is now prominent in the 2,000 Guineas and Derby betting. The stable also houses a top two-year-old prospect in Caravaggio. Churchill gave the Ballydoyle team instant compensation for Hydrangea being beaten a short-head in the Moyglare Stud Stakes after trying to make all. But, in truth, some defeats are easier to take than others and O’Brien admitted afterwards that he’d rather hoped that the photo would not go his way.  The reason was that the winner Intricately was trained by one son, 23-year-old Joseph, and ridden by another, the 18-year-old Donnacha, and gave both their first strike at the top level. Added to that the Fastnet Rock filly was bred by O’Brien senior and his wife Anne-Marie.  Intricately, out of Rock Of Gibraltar’s maiden Galileo half-sister Inner Realm, carries the colours of Chantal Regalado-Gonzalez, also owner of Zhukova. She gave Joseph O’Brien his landmark success exactly 20 years after his father scored at Group 1 level for the first time with Desert King in the National Stakes.

Vadamos joins the top table And gives Andreas Putsch’s Haras de Saint Pair its first Group 1 homebred success, writes Jocelyn de Moubray

T

he Haras de Saint Pair’s Vadamos finally broke through as a Group 1 winner with a brilliant victory in the Prix du Moulin de Longchamp, run this year at Chantilly in mid-September. The five-year-old son of Monsun is the first Group 1 winner bred at his owner Andreas Putsch’s Normandy stud. Vadamos has looked like a potentially top class colt since he was a three-year-old running over a 1m4f for François Rohaut, and winning at Longchamp and a stakes race at Vichy over that trip. Since being switched to André Fabre’s yard as a four-year-old, Vadamos has run five times over a mile on Turf, winning four Group races with ease, and finishing an excellent second to Ribchester in the Group 1 Prix Jacques le Marois. In the meantime he has also been tried on All-Weather and Dirt, without success, and over a longer trip when disappointing at Ascot last year and in the Prix d’Ispahan this. By now everyone should have realised that Vadamos is a top-class racehorse, at his best over a mile on good ground. There were only six runners in the Moulin, but aside from Vadamos the field included the Siyouni fillies Spectre and Trixia, who had both looked decent when running at Deauville, Zarak, who had chased home the champion Almanzor on his last two starts, and the Jean Claude Rouget-trained Zelzal, the impressive winner of the Group 1 Prix Jean Prat over the same course and distance. Zarak and Christophe Soumillon set off in front followed by Vincent Cheminaud on Vadamos. As they came up the hill towards the home

It takes courage to go for home so soon in a Group 1, particularly when it is Soumillon who is dictating the pace.... straight Cheminaud decided that the pace was not enough and sent Vadamos past Zarak into the lead. It takes courage to go for home so soon in a Group 1, particularly when it is Soumillon who is dictating the pace, but Cheminaud had taken the right decision and Vadamos’s speed put the race to bed. He ran the final 600m in 33.32secs, at an average speed of 65km/h (41mph), and the final 200m was the fastest of the entire day as Vadamos clocked 10.47secs an average speed of 69km/h (43mph). It is very difficult indeed to accelerate past a horse going so fast ,and Spectre and Zelzal made a brave attempt to do so, but were over a length and a half behind on the line. It is not surprising that Vadamos was tried over longer trips. He is the 20th individual Group 1 winner by Monsun and of these only five – the colts Vadamos, Manduro and Maxios and the fillies Anna Monda and Silasol – won a Group 1 over a mile. His dam the Peintre Celebre mare Celebre Vadala won on her racecourse debut over 1m4f as a three-year-old and won her Listed race over 1m2f. Why wouldn’t a son of Monsun out of a

staying Peintre Celebre mare be at his best over 1m4f? Strangely, Vadamos is the third member of his immediate female family who has reverted to becoming a top-class miler after being tried over longer distances. The Royal Academy colt Val Royal was a half-brother to Vadamos’s second dam Vadlamixa. He was trained by Fabre and as a threeyear-old he ran in the Derby at Epsom, finishing unplaced behind Oath. Sold to the US, he didn’t run at four but returned at five to win the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Mile at Belmont Park. A couple of years later Fabre trained Valixir, a Trempolino half-brother to Celebre Vadala. He, too, was trained to be a middledistance horse and finished third beaten less than a length in the last Prix du Jockey-Club run over 1m4f. As a four-year-old Valixir proved himself to be far better over shorter trips winning the Group 1 Queen Anne Stakes at York over a mile and finishing third to Dubawi in the Jacques le Marois. Vadamos is a good-looking horse with a great temperament and plenty of speed. He sometimes pulled hard when running over middle distances, but over his trip he has settled without any problems. His female family has produced a succession of top-class performers for Jean Luc Lagardère, the Aga Khan and now the Haras de Saint Pair. Vadamos is the sixth Group 1 from the family since 2001 after Vahoramix, Val Royal, Valixir, Valyra and Vazira and as a stallion it is surely likely that he will pass on speed more than stamina.


euro racing Trainer André Fabre has found that the key to Vadamos is a strongly run mile – as his female line might suggest

Vadamos is a good-looking horse with a great temperament and plenty of speed Left Hand is dominant

The Wertheimer brothers’ Left Hand was a decisive winner of the day’s other Group 1, the 1m4f Prix Vermeille, confirming the strength of the Prix de Diane form. The Carlos Laffon Parias-trained filly was beaten by only a half-length by La Cressoniere in the Diane with subsequent high-class performers such as Volta, Highlands Queen, Jemayel and The Juliet Rose behind. The Godolphin filly Endless Time set only a steady pace and Highlands Queen and Golden Valentine, who waited at the rear of the field, never got into the race. Maxime Guyon kept Left Hand close to the leader and the daughter of Dubawi was well on top at the line winning by a half length from Endless Time with the Monsun filly The Juliet Rose third and Highlands Queen fourth. The Wertheimers purchased Left Hand’s fourth dam Featherhill in-foal to Alydar more than 25 years ago. She was a half-sister to three Group 1 winners – Le Nain Jaune, Indian Rose and Vert Amande – and although she did not produce a top horse for them, her descendants include the Poule d’Essai des Poulains winner Falco, Legerette, who was fourth in the Vermeille, the Group 1 winner Plumania, who was second in the Vermeille, as well as Left Hand’s dam Balladeuse who won the Group 2 Prix Royallieu. Akihiro, the very impressive winner of the Group 3 Prix des Chenes over a mile at Chantilly, comes from a family the Wertheimers have developed for longer as they raced the first five dams beginning with Glaneuse, who was placed in the Prix de Diane in 1969. Akihiro’s fourth dam is one of the Wertheimers Arc winners Gold River, while his dam and second dam Baahama and Silver Rain were both Listed winners. Akihiro is a son of Deep Impact trained by Fabre who had won in Deauville on his debut after finishing second to Neguev. He didn’t have to overcome interference this time,

euro racing but a worthy opponent in High Alpha, who had won a Listed race in Deauville by a clear margin. High Alpha set a strong pace and Akihiro took time to respond when asked for an effort at the top of the straight, but when he found his stride Akihiro quickened fast and went from what looked like a losing position to a comfortable length victory. If his trainer lets him take his chance he will be the leading French-trained candidate for one of the autumn Group 1s.

It was only a maiden for unraced horses, but Waldgeist won in a style suggesting he has a big future

Debut winner for Fabre looks smart

Fabre produced another staying colt with the potential to be top-class on the same day at Chantilly when Waldgeist made

a winning debut in the Prix de Fontenoy for unraced two-year-old colts and geldings. The son of Galileo won in a similar style as turning for home he was near the back of a 15-strong field and looked to be going nowhere, but once he found his stride he passed his rivals with ease to win by 2l. It was only a maiden for unraced horses, but Waldgeist won in a style suggesting he has a big future. Waldgeist comes from well established German Classic family as his third dam Wurtfaube was a champion in Germany, his second dam produced the St Leger winner Masked Marvel and his dam, the Monsun mare Waldlerche, was a Group winner for Fabre at three.

Adlerflug continues to go from strength to strength The current star of German breeding is the stallion Adlerflug, a son of In The Wings (see our August edition for in-depth analysis). From a total of only around 80 foals in his first three crops Adlerflug has produced seven Group winners and two other stakes winners. In early September his four-year-old son Iquitos took his first Group 1 race when benefiting from the strong early pace in the Iquitos wins the Grosser Preis von Baden, his first Group 1 success

32

www.internationalthoroughbred.net

Grosser Preis von Baden to come with a late run to beat Nightflower by two and three-quarter lengths. Nightflower is a four-year-old Dylan Thomas filly who was second in the same race in 2015 and now has finished second in four Group 1 races. Meanwhile, two colts from Adlerflug’s third crop of only 21 three-year-olds won Group races in France. Moonshiner took the Group 3 Prix de Lutece at Saint Cloud in early September and Savoir Vivre put up an even better performance when beating the older horses Siljan’s Saga and Erupt to take the Group 2 Grand Prix de Deauville. Stall Ullmann’s Savoir Vivre was second in the Deutsches Derby, but improved on that when making all the running in Deauville. Savoir Vivre is a son of the Monsun mare Soudaine. Two winners at the Baden-Baden meeting who look to have a future in international races are the three-year-old filly Parvaneh and the twoyear-old colt Navarra King. Parvaneh is a daughter of Holy Roman Emperor owned by Darius racing and trained by Waldemar Hickst. Parvaneh had looked unlucky when coming from a long way behind to finish fifth in the Preis de Diana and turned around that form in the Group 2 T von Zastrow Stutenpreis over a mile and a half. In a slowly run race she was ridden much closer to the pace this time and quickened clear to beat Kasalla, who had been fourth in the Diana, by 2l. The Rouget-trained Galileo filly Apple Betty was fourth and she had been placed behind Left Hand in a Group race in Deauville on her previous start. Navarra King is a two-year-old son of Lope De Vega trained by Peter Schiergen for his owner-breeder Gestüt Ammerland. Having made a winning debut in Munich in July, Navarra King returned to win a Group 3 over 7f beating the Mark Johnston-trained Listed winner Miss Infinity comfortably by a length and a quarter. Gestüt Ammerland is enjoying a fine run as a breeder with the two-year-old Group 2 winner in England Rich Legacy, the promising maiden winner Bay Of Poets and as co--breeder of Waldgeist.

Daddy is tops Although Keeneland September achieved its highest top-price since 2010, the stats tables showed some mixed results, reports Melissa Bauer-Herzog

A

fter a slow start, Book 1 of the Keeneland September Yearling Sale bounced back during the last session of the three-day sale when six horses sold for over

$1 million. Included in that count was a $3 million Scat Daddy half-brother to champion Beholder, and to the Grade 1 winner and sire Into Mischief, who became the most expensive horse sold at the sale since 2010. He was bought by M.V. Magnier from breeder Clarkland Farm. Overall, the results were a bit of a mixed bag. In total, 346 yearlings sold for a total of $120,225,000, down 10.5 per cent from the 443 yearlings sold for $134,361,000 in 2015. However, the sale saw gains in both the average and the median with the average rising 14.6 per cent to $347,471 and the median making a 20 per cent jump to $300,000 from last year’s $250,000. The sale did see a decrease in the number of seven-figure lots – eight sold for $1 million or more this year compared to the 11 last year. Only two horses sold over the $1 million

The Scat Daddy half-brother to the champion Beholder became the most expensive yearling sold at Keeneland for six years fetching $3 million, bought by M.V. Magnier

While Scat Daddy had the most expensive horse of the sale, Tapit continued his reign as a sire in demand as the sale’s leading sire mark during the first two days of the sale, but buyers opened up their wallets during the final day of the Book, with the Scat Daddy colt the first to reach the seven-figure mark just

40 hips into the session. “We definitely broke through the glass ceiling today,” said Geoffrey Russell, Keeneland director of sales operations at the end of the third session. “To see such interest, especially from long-term investors looking for stallion potential, was very exciting. There was a sense of urgency today. People realise this is the end of Book 1. This is where the top pedigrees and the top physicals meet if you want to play. So people got busy.” A day after an error caused a colt out of Mandy Pope’s Horse of the Year Havre de Grace to fail to sell for $1.9 million, Pope was on the buying end of things when she bought Hip 582 and 583, both Tapit fillies, for over $1 million each.


us racing She was joined by Shadwell Estate Company and M.V. Magnier as buyers who purchased two or more million-dollar horses during Book 1. Magnier led all buyers in the million dollar club when purchasing three seven-figure horses, including a Tapit half-brother to Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Mucho Macho Man in partnership with Bridlewood Farm. Shadwell purchased three War Front colts, two for over $1 million, including a $1.9 million colt out of stakes winner Prize Catch from the family of Breeders’ Cup Distaff winner Unbridled Elaine. Shadwell topped the buyers’ list, spending $10,750,000 on 15 horses. While Scat Daddy had the most expensive horse of the sale, Tapit continued his reign as a sire in demand as the sale’s leading sire. Of his 35 offered, 28 sold for a combined $18,560,000 to lead all sires in Book 1. Book 1 saw established sires high in demand. Of the 21 most expensive horses, Frankel was the only sire with less than four crops of racing age on the track right now. The next youngest sire Pioneerof the Nile had a half-brother to Grade 1 winner Midnight Storm sell for $925,000 to Magnier and Stonestreet Stable. However, even the “established” sires are fairly young with Speightstown the oldest at 18, while the average age of stallions who produced the top 21 most expensive horses is 16. Overall, eight stallions sired the 21 horses in the group.

D

epending on how Arrogate does in the Breeders’ Cup Classic, the $300,000 paid by Bridlewood for his half-sister by Medaglia D’Oro may look like a bargain. The colt, raced by Juddmonte and trained by Bob Baffert, put in a dazzling performance when he won the Travers Stakes (G1) in record-breaking fashion – setting a new track record when winning the race by over 13l. The win came a year after American Pharoah lost the race and was a good victory for bettors with the colt going off at odds of 11.70-to-1 and paying $25.40 to win. From the penultimate crop of Unbridled’s Song, Arrogate had shown that the talent was there early on, winning his three starts before the Travers, all in California. According to Baffert, Arrogate was supposed to go to the Pacific Classic the week before to take on older horses in his stakes

Lot 561: second-top price, $2 million Tapit colt

In the Travers, Arrogate received a kinder introduction to Grade 1 racing, leading gate-to-wire and never really being tested by the rest of the 13-horse field debut, but a virus caused him to reroute. That proved to be a wise decision, with California Chrome easily romping in the Pacific Classic against horses such as Beholder and Dortmund. In the Travers, Arrogate received a kinder introduction to Grade 1 racing, leading gate-to-wire and never really being tested by the rest of the 13-horse field, including stablemate American Freedom. Arrogate was purchased by Juddmonte with the intention of sending him to Baffert when they paid $560,000 for him during Book 1 of 2014’s Keeneland sale. Saratoga was kind to Baffert this year with the trainer also winning the King’s Bishop Stakes (G1) with Drefong in that colt’s stakes

debut a few races before Arrogate. Juddmonte doesn’t own Drefong, but the stud purchased his half-sister by Animal Kingdom for $400,000 during the second session at Keeneland. Drefong ran a similar style to Arrogate, leading wire-to-wire and though he wasn’t as impressive as his fellow Baffert trainee, he won by an easy 3l to become sire Gio Ponti’s first Grade 1 winner. Drefong was purchased at Keeneland September for $450,000. His next stop is the Breeders’ Cup Sprint at his home track at Santa Anita, where he has won two of three starts. Also on the Travers card, Flintshire continued his domination of the US Turf division when defending his 2015 victory in the Longines Sword Dancer Stakes (G1), while Haveyougoneaway put herself in serious contention as the best female sprinter in North American when winning the Ballerina Stakes (G1), her second graded stakes victory at this year’s Saratoga meet. History was made in the Spinaway Stakes. Proving that he’s so good he can win twice in one race, Tapit’s fillies Sweet Loretta and Pretty City Dancer dead-heated for the first time in the history of the Spinaway (G1). One race later, Frosted looked to make it a Tapit triple in the Woodward Stakes (G1) but in a controversial ride that shook up social media, the four-year-old finished third by a head under a hand ride. The win went to 2015 Queen’s Plate winner Shaman Ghost, who added a first Grade 1 to his resume and gave sire Ghostzapper his first North American Grade 1 victory of the year. In the final Grade 1 at Saratoga, Practical Joke took the Hopeful Stakes by a neck over Royal Copy to give Chad Brown his first-ever Grade 1 win with a male Dirt horse. A $240,000 yearling purchase at Keeneland, Practical Joke is the first Grade 1 winner of the year for sire Into Mischief. Unfortunately Practical Joke’s victory was all but forgotten a few hours later when Klimt put on a show at Del Mar in the Futurity. The winner of the Best Pal Stakes (G2) earlier in the meet, Klimt proved that he is Baffert’s stand-out two-year-old when he tracked the leaders then pulled away in the stretch to win by 4l. Klimt is a major pinhooker success story for Bradley Thoroughbreds, who bought the colt at the Fasig-Tipton July Sale for $140,000 last year before selling him at this year’s OBS March Sale for $435,000 as a two-year-old.

There have been some brilliant US performances this summer, writes Simon Rowlands, but none better than Arrogate’s “demolition job” in the Travers Stakes which saw him smash the track record

I

t would have been understandable if horseracing in the US had suffered something of a hangover in the aftermath of 2015, the year in which the brilliant American Pharoah became the first Triple Crown winner in nearly four decades. But not a bit of it, it seems. The current year has served up a series of top-notch performances stateside from the likes of California Chrome, Frosted and Songbird, and it delivered the most sensational of them all at the end of August, when the hitherto-unheralded Arrogate (Unbridled’s Song) performed a demolition job in the Travers Stakes (G1) at Saratoga. Arrogate trounced his rivals by 13 and a half lengths and more on his first venture into Graded company, and, as much to the point, smashed the track record running the fastest time in the race this century by more than two seconds. None of Arrogate’s dozen toiling rivals were right out of the top drawer, but they were nearly all at least smart, and they included the latest winners of the Preakness and Belmont Stakes. “You do the math”, as they say! Timeform’s assessment of Arrogate at 132p (but with a “p” on his rating to signify the likelihood of further improvement) seems to view the “math” with some caution: the colt’s figure could easily be several pounds higher. But, still, that is within touching distance of California Chrome’s 135 and Frosted’s 134, and ahead of Songbird’s 130. A star has been born, but only time will tell for sure how bright and for how long that star will burn. The same Saratoga card which saw

The Juddmonte roll of Grade 1 victories continued with Flintshire’s success in the Sword Dancer

Flintshire has gone from being something of a “nearly” horse when trained in Europe to thoroughly dominant in Turf routes Arrogate’s remarkable Travers produced a further trio of impressive Grade 1 wins, courtesy of Flintshire (Dansili) in the Sword Dancer Stakes, A. P. Indian in the Forego Stakes and Drefong (Gio Ponti) in the King’s Bishop, performances worth figures of 129, 128 and 124 respectively. Flintshire has gone from being something of a “nearly” horse when trained in Europe

to thoroughly dominant in Turf routes in the US, and nothing from his backyard is likely to trouble him in the Breeders’ Cup Turf at Santa Anita in November. A. P. Indian and Drefong could clash over- a furlong less in the Breeders’ Cup Sprint. There has been a discernible shift in the balance of horseracing power in the early-September period in Europe. Where once the focus was on Arc Trials Day at Longchamp and the St Leger at Doncaster, it is now primarily on the recently founded Irish Champions weekend at Leopardstown and The Curragh. The feature event of the weekend – the Irish Champion, worth over a million euros – attracted a stellar cast and went in good style to the French raider Almanzor, previously winner of the Prix du Jockey-Club (G1) at Chantilly. Almanzor’s defeat of last year’s Breeders’ Cup Turf heroine Found (Galileo) earned

The Japanese Derby winner and Arc challenger Makahiki (Deep Impact) won the Prix Niel with ease

him a Timeform rating of 130 (Found ran to 126) and identifies him as a rattlingly good 1m2f colt, though not definitely one with the stamina for further. The 1,000 Guineas and Oaks winner Minding got a slightly troubled passage, but probably ran close to her best in third, though the Derby and Irish Derby winner Harzand (eighth) was found to be wrong after. The other older-horse Group 1s over the two days went to the Galileo filly Alice Springs (Matron Stakes at Leopardstown) and Wicklow Brave (Irish St Leger at The Curragh), both of whom ran to a figure of 121. The former is perhaps not the most consistent but is certainly capable of coming with a formidable challenge at the end of a strongly-run race, while the latter seemed to find the previous year’s winner Order Of St George slightly off his game. The “original” St Leger, over at Doncaster, did not go to script, either, with odds-on Idaho stumbling and unseating early in the straight and

outsider Harbour Law showing reserves of stamina to get up late on. The latter’s 119 rating is a bit below the usual race-winning standard. Meanwhile, Arc Trials Day at Chantilly attracted just 15 runners in total for the three 12f races, all of which were falsely-run. The Japanese Derby winner Makahiki did not have to be at his 123-rated best to win the Prix Niel, but Left Hand (117) and Silverwave (123) probably were in landing the Prix Vermeille and Prix Foy respectively. None of those efforts obviously represents Arc-winning form. On the same card, Vadamos came out on top in the Prix du Moulin, but his figure of 124 was two below what he achieved behind Ribchester at Deauville in August and identifies this as a weak Group 1. There have been stronger Group 1s than the previous week’s Sprint Cup at Haydock, as well, but the Showcasing filly Quiet Reflection – the clear-cut winner on rain-softened ground – still takes high rank among international sprinters with a new personal-best of 126.

Irish Champions weekend featured a couple of Group 1s for two-year-olds, with Galileo colt Churchill (117p) taking the scalp of a non-staying Mehmas in the National Stakes and Intricately (107p) (Fastnet Rock), a narrow and shock winner of the Moyglare Stud Stakes. Churchill has long had a big reputation, and he is really beginning to justify it now. The juveniles in the US have not inspired so far, though things could take off from here. The best youngster to date is probably the Bob Baffert-trained Quality Road colt Klimt, who has won the last three of his four starts, notably the Del Mar Futurity from Straight Fire, for which he got a 121 Timeform figure. Pick of the fillies (disregarding for now 127-rated Lady Aurelia, who has run only once in the US) look to be Union Strike (Union Rags) (115p for winning Del Mar Debutante Stakes) and the Tapit pair of Sweet Loretta (114 for dead-heating with 111-rated Pretty City Dancer in the Spinaway Stakes at Saratoga).

Ahead of its draft of three going to Tattersalls Book 1, Jocelyn de Moubray visits Chris Wright’s Stratford Place Stud and finds out just why and how the music supremo, who has recently bought back his record company Chrysalis, became involved in the bloodstock and racing industries, and hears of some of the experiences enjoyed along the way

C

hristopher Wright has lived many lives. Music, television, radio and media tycoon, he is an excellent tennis player, owner of football, basketball and rugby clubs; he is, he says, always busy. “I often say I am busy doing nothing,” he laughs, “but more often than not I am busy doing something.” This year he has, together with some new partners, bought back his original record company Chrysalis 25 years after selling it to EMI in 1991. And yet despite the many other commitments he has developed through this time, or at least since the early 1980s, Wright has also enjoyed great success in racing. As an owner on his own and with various different partners he has raced champions, Classic winners and future top sires. His Stratford Place Stud in Gloucestershire has become a regular producer of high-class racehorses and successful sales yearlings for more than 25 years. “I was brought up on a farm in a very rural part of Lincolnshire,” he explains. “At the time the racecourse at Lincoln was still open and we were not far from Market Rasen. I did go racing, but to be fair it didn’t play a big part in my life at the time. “It was later on that I was introduced to racing by some friends from the music business and, after having had a couple of jumpers, I decided to go to the sales in Newmarket with the Lambourn trainer Ray Laing in 1981 to buy a yearling.” The horse they picked was a filly by Dragonara Palace who was to become one of the best two-year-olds in Europe and the foundation mare of Stratford Place Stud. “She looked the part,” Wright remembers, “and had a good early-season profile: exactly what a new owner wants! She cost 12,500gns, at the time it was not an insignificant amount.” In today’s terms it is probably the equivalent of about 50,000gns, but Crime Of Passion, as she was named, soon showed that she was more than worth this. The filly won her first two starts and went to Royal Ascot to run in the Queen Mary Stakes (G2). “I was completely distraught when she didn’t win,” Wright says. “I thought it was straightforward, but, of course, I knew nothing! “I would give anything to have a filly good enough to be second in the Queen Mary now!” he smiles.

Wright retained Crime Of Passion: if he had sold her, he does not believe he would still be in racing

I would give anything to have a filly good enough to be second in the Queen Mary now! After Ascot, Crime Of Passion went to Newmarket and won the Group 3 Cherry Hinton and was then placed third in what was at the time the Group 1 Prix Robert Papin, beaten by the top filly Ma Biche. “After Newmarket, Philip Mitchell came to see me,” Wright continues, “and explained that he wanted to buy Crime Of Passion for a new client. “He made quite a punchy offer, which I refused, and then came back and made

another better one. I hadn’t a clue what she was worth, but I said no again and so he made an even higher offer. “Stupidly, I turned down £500,000 for her! [about £2 million in 2016 figures]. “If I had sold her, I probably wouldn’t still be in racing today. Mitchell told me later that his client was Hamdan Al Maktoum who had wanted to buy two fillies who had won at the Newmarket July meeting. Hamdan got the other one – she was Height Of Fashion, the dam of his champion Nashwan.” Wright was in his thirties at the time and the co-owner of Chrysalis records, which he had set up at the end of the 1960s with Terry Ellis. His career in the music business grew out of his time at Manchester University where he was responsible for organising concerts and visiting bands. He branched out into


stratford place stud putting on concerts at clubs and, after briefly contemplating a job offer for an international import export company, he started his own record label. The early successes of Chrysalis included Procul Harem and Jethro Tull and the label continued to work with top bands throughout the 1970s and 1980s, names including Blondie, Billy Idol, Ultravox and Spandau Ballet amongst many others. In Wright’s recent autobiography, One Way Or Another, there is photograph of Wright among a dazed-looking group waiting on the side of the road next to Janis Joplin’s tour bus somewhere in the US in 1968. “I flew to the States in June 1968,” he recalls. “I had more or less short hair, a suit and a briefcase. When I came back I had long hair, a beard, a leather jacket and a hippy shoulder bag! “It was an amazing time in the music business; in the 1960s and 1970s music was everything for the young generation and it was an all-consuming time to live.”

T

wo decisions marked Chrysalis’s progress. First, the company paid an almost unheard of sum of $1.2 million to buy Blondie’s record contract. “It was my partner who had seen them as a band in New York and told me they were really good, so I told him to go ahead and buy the contract whatever it cost.” Not every decision looks so good in retrospect and it was the same partner who turned down signing David Bowie. “We had signed Bowie as a songwriter and it was my ex-partner who listened to the record ‘Hunky Dory’ and turned it down,” Wright explains. “I was away at the time and I had heard the record, and liked it, but it was too late to go back on his decision.” At about the same time as Crime Of Passion was racing, Wright had bought a house in the country at Coln Rogers in Gloucester, still his base today. “Three or four years later the farm surrounding the house came on the market and I bought that too. “I set about turning some disused cattle sheds into stables, not necessarily with the idea of having expensive thoroughbreds there, and I hired John Wall as my stud groom. “It was John who convinced me that we could bring the mares home as at the time Crime Of Passion was boarding elsewhere. “I had to find a name for the stud company

Although Wright would like to keep all of his stock, Stratford Place is run on a commercial basis

...in the 1960s and 1970s music was everything for the young generation and it was an all-consuming time to live and I chose Stratford Place Stud – at the time my London office was in Stratford Place,” he remembers. Wall stayed at Stratford Place until his recent retirement when Wright appointed Chris Lock to take over his position. Crime Of Passion’s family is still well represented in the stud and her descendants include the Rathasker Stud stallion Bungleinthejungle and this year’s Group 1 Dubai Golden Shahen winner Muarrab. Muarrab was sold for 280,000gns at the 2010 October sale and is now the winner of

13 races and more than £1.1 million in prize-money. “They all do what is says on the tin,” Wright says. “They are fast and precocious and it was a great thrill to breed a Group 1 winner on Dubai World Cup day. “It is a pity that Crime Of Passion’s daughter Crime Of The Century died young as she was producing really well, but we still have Licence To Thrill, the dam of Bungleinthejungle and Muarrab as well as some of her daughters.” The stud has had some great days at the sales – it sold a Galileo colt for 750,000gns in 2007, and on the racecourse it has produced Muarrab, the Hong Kong Group 1 winner Zaidan, and others including Souvenir Delondres, a juvenile Group winner who ran in Wright’s colours in 2014. “We have always been a commercial stud,” Wright explains. “I would like to keep them all, but you have to have a commercial view and we always offer yearlings. “You keep learning about selling. You have to have the right page, which is never easy

stratford place stud when you make the matings two years in advance, and then you have to have the right individual too. “It is no good if you have the right page and the wrong individual or the right individual with the wrong page, but then as Gary Player nearly said I find that the harder we work at it the luckier we become!” Stratford Place Stud is the name of the breeding company as well as the Gloucestershire stud and the company has always kept mares abroad too. “I have a mare in Kentucky, one in Australia and a few in France too. I believe that in this respect racing is the same as the music or television business, my aim is to develop talent in the UK and then sell this talent internationally. “The UK on its own is not a big enough market to sustain anything and you have to think internationally. I have not had much success in Australia, but I have a northernhemisphere-timed Starspanglerbanner foal, who will be coming up to the yearling sales here next year.”

O

verall Wright tries to have between 15 and 18 broodmares, with a maximum of 20. When it comes to racing, Wright often races in partnerships. The best horses he has had in recent years include top two-year-olds Dark Angel, owned together with Catherine and Joe Corbett, and Chriselliam, owned with Willie Carson, and William and Emily Asprey. “I like racing with partners,” he says, “but it has to be with friends, as it is always hard to make the right decisions.” He has no hesitation in naming Chriselliam as the best horse he has ever had. The daughter of Iffraaj looked good when winning the Group 1 Fillies’ Mile at Newmarket, and then better still when racing away with the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf at Santa Anita. She died as a three-year old following complications from what should have been a minor injury, but which became infected. “Richard Hughes told me,” says Wright, “that Chriselliam was not only the best twoyear-old filly he ever rode, but the best filly he rode. “I shall never have another one like her and it was terrible to lose her to such a freak accident. We turned down a huge offer for her when we were on the plane on the way to Los

Angeles, and then even more after she had won, but we wanted to breed from her.” Dark Angel won the Mill Reef Stakes (G2) and the Middle Park Stakes (G1) for Wright and the Corbetts and they sold him at the end of his two-year-old career to go to stud at Yeomanstown as a three-year-old. “We knew he wouldn’t stay further than 6f,” Wright explains, “and at the time there was no Commonwealth Cup or programme such as that for three-year-old sprinters and so the offer made sense. “I don’t think he was all that precocious in the end, and if you look at his progeny they often progress and improve with age. “They are alright at Ascot, better at Newmarket and better- still later on. He is an excellent stallion and if I have been unlucky with him, getting horses who have been sick or have had accidents, I keep using him.” After selling Chrysalis records Wright created a whole series of new successful businesses in radio and television, at one time he owned Heart FM and LBC, while his television company produced a great deal of sports programmes as well as the Midsomer Murders series. In 2011 he retired from full-time work and served four years on the council of the

Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association. Now he has Chrysalis to think about again he is busier than ever, but he is currently on the council of the Racehorse Owners Association. He probably has a very different working background to his fellow members but, he

assures me, “they have all had interesting lives in their own spheres.” He never thought of himself as being particularly ambitious he says but looking back there was something early on which may have been a sign. “In our village,” he remembers, “there was a huge disused chicken barn which I decided to turn into a youth club. “I redid it, put in table tennis tables and then persuaded everyone to join. We ended up winning nearly every table tennis tournament we entered and I suppose looking back it did show that even at a young age I was good at seeing opportunities and then organising people to realise them.” As he is speaking Wright is looking out of his window in Gloucestershire at Stratford Place Stud’s three October Book 1 fillies. A Kitten’s Joy half-sister to Zaidan, a Sea The Stars filly who is the first foal of a halfsister to Grey Lilas, and a Dutch Art filly out of The Thrill Is Gone, a stakes-placed granddaughter of Crime Of Passion. “I really would like to keep them all. They are three lovely fillies,” he muses, “particularly the Kitten’s Joy filly as she wouldn’t exist if it hadn’t been for Chriselliam. “When we were at Santa Anita, Willie [Carson] introduced me to Ken Ramsey and I agreed I would send Element Of Truth to Kitten’s Joy on the spot.” Whether or not the Kitten’s Joy finds a new home at the sale it seems certain that Wright will remain very busy doing many things, and passionate about his racing and breeding.

It has been a mixed few years for Burke with a ban and a need to rebuild his business, but the trainer has enjoyed two domestic Group 1 successes this year xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx with his talented filly Quiet Reflection. Marcus Townend visits the Middleham trainer at Spigot Lodge

Moments of reflection


karl burke Final instructions: trainer Karl Burke and jockey Dougie Costello contemplating the job ahead of the Haydock Sprint Cup

H

e may not have managed to shift heaven but Karl Burke has certainly moved plenty of earth since he moving to Spigot Lodge stables 16 years ago. Tons of it.  The yard named after the 1821 St Leger winner Jack Spigot and where the 1849 Derby winner The Flying Dutchman was trained is one of the most historic, not just in Middleham but in the north of England.  But, in less than two decades, Burke has driven such a transformation at his North Yorkshire base that previous owner, the late Guy Reed whose horses were trained there first by Sam Hall and latterly by Chris Thornton, would barely believe it.  Two new modern American barns now stand on previously boggy land that has been drained and levelled.  A third is under construction, alongside a new stable staff hostel so attractively constructed with Wensleydale stone that the local tourist board will be disappointed it is not on their books.  Then there is a circular canter and three lunging rings which stand on ground cut out of the hillside.  Development has been largely funded by Burke’s knack of unearthing an equine gem, a bargain buy good enough to be sold on for a handsome profit.  The list of his successes was already impressive, even before Quiet Reflection came along.  The 44,000gns filly, now potentially worth up to £2 million after winning the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot and Haydock’s Sprint Cup, is being prepared for a third potential Group 1 win of the season at this month’s British Champions Day back at Ascot.  The wins, his first at Group 1 level in Britain after three overseas, has also pushed Burke’s seasonal prize-money haul past £1 million for the first time.  The daughter of Showcasing joins a money-making list which includes Libertarian, the 40,000gns Dante Stakes winner sold to Godolphin before finishing second to Ruler Of The World in the 2013

karl burke Derby, the €22,000 dual Group 1 winner Odeliz and the €18,000 buy Katie’s Diamond, whose two-year-old wins last year prompted Qatar Racing to flourish the cheque book. But, to the side of paths and tracks which snake up from Spigot Lodge to the renowned Middleham trial grounds of Low and High Moor, lies a constant reminder to Burke of how close he came to his hopes and ambitions collapsing around him.  The pile of metalwork was supposed to be massive multi-horse horsewalker to further enhance the family stable where wife Elaine and daughters Kelly and Lucy are closely involved.  It has lain there rusting since 2009 when Burke was hit by a one-year ban for falling foul of the sport’s contentious insider information rules, a sentence which could have broken him both psychologically as well as financially.  Remarkably, it is a punishment in which he can now find positives.  Burke admitted he had talked horses and their chances with Miles Rodgers, a former owner who had been banned for his corrupt dealings with jockey Fergal Lynch.  But Rodgers was also a property developer and had become one of Burke’s partners in an adjacent property to Spigot Lodge.    Interaction, Burke said, was inevitable but

Everyone thought we would have to sell, but we were determined that was not going to happen the BHA were not swayed by a case which had its origins in the flawed Old Bailey trial involving Lynch, six-time champion Kieren Fallon and Burke’s jockey Darren Williams, which collapsed in 2007. Burke said: “In many respects, it effected

Elaine, Lucy and Kelly more than me. If the Old Bailey trial had been successful, I don’t think they would have even come after us. They wanted to hang someone. I know I broke some rules, but it wasn’t as drastic as was made out. “But I had to accept I had done some wrong. I thought I might get six months, which would have been manageable. But when it was a year, it knocked two seasons out, half of one and half the next.  “Everyone thought we would have to sell, but we were determined that was not going to happen. “I could not live here so ended up travelling around. I went to Australia a couple of times and Hong Kong. I had friends in the south of


England and was also stayed with them. “But once I got over the initial shock in the first six weeks, I actually enjoyed the year. It was great just to step back off the hamster wheel.  “I was more chilled out the second time around. I was not rushing to get to the races. When I returned, I could sit back and could say ‘do I need to run this horse?’. Before it was ‘I’ve got to run it here or there’.  “It has definitely made me a better person and a better trainer, although I think I am slipping back into that agitated way again!”  After his ban, Burke did not apply for his licence immediately – wife Elaine’s name was on the licence. She officially was in charge when Libertarian missed out at Epsom.

If you bid £30,000 on a horse and have not got that sitting in the bank, it can get a bit hairy! Stable numbers had slipped from 90 to 30, and as Burke reports “we owned 10 of those ourselves”, but the trainer insists he never feared the sport would totally turn its back on him. “A lot of people who know me and the owners knew what had happened. We still get abusive phone calls now, although I know talking to some of the lads, it doesn’t just happen to me,” said the man who rode 50 winners as a jump jockey before turning to training.  That 115 horses now fill Spigot Lodge is evidence that Burke’s standing in the sport ultimately was unaffected. Also to his record.  But, in the ultimate results business, he admits that he has taken risks and is still taking them. Burke backs himself at the sales and has so far delivered, even if at times the situation got precarious.

karl burke “In the last 12-15 years, we’ve bought more yearlings. By buying them, keeping shares and selling them if they turn out to be good two-year-olds, it has allowed us to do what we have done,” said the trainer who twice landed the Ayr Gold Cup with Daring Destiny (1994) and Always Alight (1998).  “But, if you bid £30,000 on a horse and have not got that sitting in the bank, it can get a bit hairy. The sales companies kept us afloat for a number of years by giving us a bit of credit. “You end up selling half or a quarter and working off the rest. But I made a lot of mistakes, like a lot of trainers do, by holding on to horses.  “You think you will keep it and it will win a nice race but, unfortunately, winning races might earn you a lot of kudos, but does not win you an awful lot of money.  “Ultimately, you have to balance the books. You have to make a decision whether to roll the dice to see if they get better. Nine times out of 10, they don’t, they regress. “Now, if I keep a share with other owners, I have to have the say if an offer comes in. We come to that agreement. “We are our biggest owners. I keep a strict record every month of the percentages we own, the number and the fire sale value of the horses. It’s frightening.

Leading in to the cheers: former NH jockey Dougie Costello has enjoyed a fabulous summer with the filly

karl burke What did Burke see in Quiet Reflection as a breeze-up purchase?

“ I went to look at her because we had (2014 Mill Reef Stakes winner) Toocoolforschool from Showcasing’s first crop, while I had also trained her grand-dam (Clare Hills), who won the 2005 Hilary Needler Stakes for us and was fourth in Queen Mary Stakes when it was run at York.  “I knew it was a fast family and thought she was good value. We were probably getting to the top of where we would have gone to, but I’d bought before off Tom Whitehead, who consigned her, and he recommended her quite strongly.  “She had a bit of a round joint, a bit of wear and tear and was a little bit sore, but Tom  assured me he had had no issues so we gave her a bit of easy time after the sales which we do with most breeze-up horses. “I think it is a fallacy that most breeze-up horses are ready to run. When we started training her you could tell she had plenty of speed.”

What do you like to see in a yearling?

“I love a good athletic walk and an honest head. Conformation is obviously important, but the longer you train you realise there is not the perfect horse out there. You realise what you can get away with as far as training them is concerned. “There are certain things with bad conformation that I have tried a failed, things you can’t get away with no matter how lovely the rest of the horse is. “There are things you just have to walk away from because it is just an accident waiting to happen.”

www.internationalthoroughbred.net

“Two months ago we had over 30 horses in the yard in Elaine’s name. We owned over a third of the stable. That has gone down a bit because we have sold a few and got rid of a few, but it will still go back up buying yearlings. “It is too many and it is a gamble but, touch wood, it is a gamble that has paid off.” Cashing in when the time is right is both an art and skill, but Burke bent his own rules when the big offers came in for Quiet Reflection ahead of her Royal Ascot win under stable jockey Dougie Costello.  Burke rolled the dice but one he knew was loaded in his favour with the filly he owns in partnership with Hubert Strecker and the Ontoawinner syndicate.  “There was a lot of pressure because we had huge offers going into the Commonwealth Cup. We declined both for different reasons. “One was to stay in the yard but not to run in the Commonwealth and one, from America, was to run her in their names and under their trainer and go to them straight after. “If she had got beaten it was a bad decision but if she won it was a great decision.”  Another win for Quiet Reflection on Champions Day might just make it a brilliant decision. Burke is making a habit of making them.   The Spigot Lodge team and, top, Libertarian whose sale to Godolphin after his second in the Derby helped to finance the building of a couple of barns at Spigot Lodge. The colt was owned by Hubert John Strecker, who also has a share in Quiet Reflection

holliday mares

I

n the period from the early 1940s to the 1960s there were few more important British thoroughbred breeders than Major Lionel Holliday. Holliday owned Copgrove Hall in Yorkshire, Cleaboy Stud in Westmeath, Ireland, and Sandwich Stud in Newmarket, and was leading owner three times, leading breeder three times, while he also bred and raced three Classic winners. He twice raced homebred three-year-old colts rated at the top of their generation in Europe, and bred the sire and dam of an Epsom Derby winner Blakeney, though success in the Blue Riband itself eluded him. His two outstanding colts were Hethersett and Vaguely Noble. Hethersett started favourite for the 1962 Epsom Derby, but was one of seven horses who fell or were brought down in a melée on the decent to Tattenham Corner. He subsequently won the St. Leger, and at the

holliday mares Holliday family TIMELINE 1880 Lionel Brook Holliday born in Huddersfield, son of Thomas Holliday 1890 Thomas Holliday became chairman and managing director of Read Holliday and Sons, dye manufacturers 1899 Boer War started, the war office granted a large contract to the firm to make picric acid for explosives. 1901 Lionel Brook Holliday joined the board 1911 World War I forced Read Holliday and Sons to concentrate on explosives manufacture. 1914 Holliday bought Cleaboy Stud 1915 The shortage of explosives in Britain meant Holliday was recalled from France, where he was a major in the Army, one of the few British technical men with knowledge of picric acid manufacture. He became responsible for a government plant producing picric acid at Bradley. By the end of 1915 the plant was producing 100 tons of picric acid a week. 1915 British Dyes was formed by the government takeover of Read Holliday and Sons. Eventually became ICI. 1916  Holliday was not asked to join British Dyes, but received £10,000 from the takeover. With this he bought land in Deighton, next door to the picric acid works at Bradley. On this 30-acre site, the former Huddersfield racecourse, he set up L. B. Holliday and Co Ltd. 1917 Holliday acquired a large number of German-owned British dye patents, which were under government control. 1918 L. B. Holliday and Co producing 50 tons of dye a month with a workforce of 20 men. Holliday recruited many of the workers, customers and processes who had previously been at Read Holliday and Sons, causing lasting friction between his company and British Dyes.  1920 L. B. Holliday and Co prospered under the leadership of Major Holliday. 1928 Birth of son 1936 Purchased of Copgrove Hall 1950 Major took advantage of import barriers to expand the business. By late 1950s the company employed 800-900. 1958 Bought Sandwich Stud, Newmarket 1963 Son, Brook Holliday, joins York racecourse committee, eventually becoming chairman 1964 Brook Holliday, elected to the Jockey Club 1965 Major Holliday died leaving large death duties 1967 Vaguely Noble sold for record 136,000gns 1969 Copgrove Hall sold, majority purchased by Guy Reed 1970s The firm became the largest privately-owned dye manufacturer in the world with the boom in synthetic fibres. 1976 Cleaboy Farm leading vendor at Houghton Sale 1978 Cleaboy Farm sold 1979 Brook Holliday awarded Queen’s Award for exports 1986 Sandwich Stud sold to the Thompson family, now part of Cheveley Park Stud 1987 Majority of broodmares sold to Aga Khan 1982 The company had gone into receivership in 1981 and was sold to Terry Brain, a Jersey-based businessman, the name was changed to Holliday Dyes and Chemicals Ltd. (HDC). 2014 Brook Holliday dies

end of the year Timeform rated him as the joint-top three-year-old in Europe, equal with the Irish 2,000 Guineas and Champion Stakes winner, Arctic Storm. Vaguely Noble was born in 1965, the year of Holliday’s death, and as a consequence was not nominated to the Classics, but his victory over that year’s Derby hero Sir Ivor in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe proved that he was amongst the best runners in the post-World War II era in Europe. Given that Holliday by all accounts was not the easiest of men to get along with, we’re not sure that he’d appreciate the irony, that just a year on from the 50th anniversary of his passing not only the Epsom Derby winner and Arc fancy Harzand, but also this year’s dual Oaks heroine hopeful Minding, both Minding: from a Northern Dancer / Danehill cross

descend from families developed by Holliday, and with ties respectively to Hethersett and Vaguely Noble.

Lost Soul: foundation mare

The most important of the Holliday foundation mares was Lost Soul, who was a 1,800gns purchase at the 1932 Doncaster St. Leger Yearling Sale. Bred at Sledmere Stud in Yorkshire, Lost Soul was by the St. Leger, Coronation Cup and Ascot Gold Cup victor Solario and out of Orlass, a daughter of the English and Irish Derby winner Orby, and was half-sister to the Derby third Shian Mor. She wasn’t a top-class runner, but did win twice and was placed in the City and Suburban Handicap and Victoria Cup, efforts that would certainly qualify her as a blacktype performer in modern terms. At stud, Lost Soul produced seven winners, including Goldsborough, who won the Prince Of Wales’ Stakes, Dumbarnie, a top-sprinter and subsequently sire of Lochnager, the best sprinter in Europe in 1976, as well as Nearly, a filly who was third in the Middle Park Stakes. Subsequently, Nearly became ancestress of a slew of major winners, the most prominent being Dumka, who won the 1974 running of the Poule d’Essai des Pouliches. She went onto become dam of the 2,000 Guineas winner and Derby third Doyoun, the dual Oaks winner Alexandrova as well as another Irish Oaks heroine Chicquita. Other names descending from Dumka include the Champion Stakes scorer Flossy, a Japanese champion two-year-old filly Cheers Grace, the top miler Indian Lodge, Droll Role, a stand-out Turf horse in the US, and the important sire, Derring-Do.  In addition to Nearly, several other daughters of Lost Soul became successful producers, but the most important for Holliday was her 1939 foal Phase, a daughter of the Derby, St. Leger and Eclipse Stakes winner, Windsor Lad. Holliday was actually rather lucky to keep Phase. With the outbreak of World War II Holliday sold his entire 1940 yearling crop to leading Irish breeder, Joe McGrath, who passed on Phase due to her rather large and unsightly head. Phase was to prove a smart runner, winning three races, including the Bottisham Stakes, but her true value was as a producer.  Lost Soul’s good runners Goldsborough and Nearly were by Nearco, while Dumbarnie


holliday mares was by Nearco’s son, Dante. It’s no surprise then, to find that Phase made a number of visits to Nearco’s court. The union proved to be remarkably successful yielding the 1951 Oaks winner Neasham Belle; Narrator, winner of the Champion Stakes and Coronation Cup; Netherton Maid, who took the Princess Elizabeth Stakes and ran second in the 1947 renewal of the Oaks; None Nicer, winner of the Ribblesdale Stakes, Yorkshire Oaks and Lingfield Oaks Trial; and runner-up in the St. Leger; and another Lingfield Oaks Trial winner, No Pretender. Although inferior as a racehorse to Neasham Belle and None Nicer, it was Netherton Maid who proved to be the most important of Phase’s daughters. She was dam of a trio of good colts in Chatsworth (runner-up in the St. Leger, and a successful sire in New Zealand), Pirate King (St. James’s Palace Stakes) and Pampered King (a useful sire, whose progeny included the champion two-year-old and outstanding NH stallion, Deep Run).  Netherton Maid’s best daughter Bride Elect (by the Royal 2,000 Guineas winner, Big Game) was one of the fastest juvenile

fillies of 1942. She won the Queen Mary Stakes, and took second in the Cheveley Park Stakes and Lowther Stakes. Bride Elect was a highly-important producer with her offspring including Hethersett, Never Beat, a four-time champion sire in Japan, and Royal Prerogative, a champion sire in South Africa. She also produced a stellar broodmare in Prudent Girl, dam of the Washington DC International winner Providential, and jointchampion European two-year-old filly Play It Safe, and ancestress of numerous other stakes winners.

Hethersett: a Derby winner in name

It was Hethersett who was by some way the best of Bride Elect’s offspring. He was an outcross at five generations, but was by the intensely inbred Champion Stakes and Irish 2,000 Guineas winner Hugh Lupus (2x3 to Tourbillon, and 4x5x3 to Tourbillon’s paternal grandsire Bruleur) with Bride Elect being 3x4 to Blandford and 5x4x6 to that horse’s broodmare sire, White Eagle.   At two, Hethersett won the Duke of Edinburgh Stakes at Ascot on his debut, but

could only manage fifth in the Timeform Gold Cup (now the Racing Post Trophy). He kicked off at three with a 5l score in the Brighton Derby Trial, and on the strength of that effort started favourite in a field of 26 for the Derby. Apparently travelling well in midfield, he was brought down in the pile-up at half-distance as long-shot Larkspur went onto win. Unplaced on firm ground and when short of peak fitness in the Gordon Stakes, Hethersett rebounded to take the Great Voltigeur Stakes. He gained a measure of Classic compensation with a 4l win in the St. Leger – Larkspur back in sixth – and was then second to Arctic Storm in the Champion Stakes. Hethersett remained in training at four, but failed to win again. At stud he died after siring just three crops, but left ten stakes winners from 71 foals, including Epsom Derby winner Blakeney and Highest Hopes, who captured the Prix Vermeille.

Hazy Idea joins the Aga Khan band

holliday mares type winners was Hazy Idea, who won the March Stakes and Crookham Stakes, and also ran second in the Prix de Royallieu, and fourth in the Poule d’Essai des Pouliches and the Prix Royal-Oak. She was bred after Major Holliday’s death by his son Brook Holliday, and her dam Won’t Linger was by Worden out of Chatsworth’s sister Cherished making Hazy Idea 3x3 to Netherton Maid.   Cherished was unraced, but she produced a trio of black-type winners, including Hethersett’s three-quarters sister Heath Rose, a Listed winner in England and France who was rated among the best of her crop at two and three, and who subsequently became dam of Middle Park Stakes winner Tudenham.  At stud, Hazy Idea kicked off with three black-type winners from her first three foals, headed by Hittite Glory, who took the Flying Childers Stakes and Middle Park Stakes at two.  In the mid-1980s, Hazy Idea was among a number of Holliday mares purchased privately by the Aga Khan. For him, she foaled a pair of black-type-producing daughters. The most notable of those was the Darshaan mare, Hazaradjat. Her best runner was the Barathea daughter Hazarista, who took the Blue Wind Stakes and ran third in both the Irish Oaks and the Yorkshire Oaks. Through the minor winners Hazarama and Handaza, Hazaradjat also appears as grand-dam of three stakes winners, including Humphrey Bogart, who won this year’s Lingfield Derby Trial and ran fifth in the Derby, as well as third dam of Seal Of Approval, successful in the Champions Fillies and Mares Stakes.   Hazaradjat was also represented by another good daughter on the racetrack in Hazariya (Xaar). She wasn’t as talented as Hazarista, but she did win three races, including a pair of blacktype events in the Athasi Stakes and Victor McCalmont Memorial Stakes. As a broodmare, Hazariya made a promising start, her first three foals being the Listed winner Hazarafra, the Group-placed Haziyna, and Harasiya, a Group winner who also took third in the Moyglare Stud Stakes. The sequence of black-type horses ended with Hazariya’s fourth foal Hazaraba, who was a minor winner in Ireland, but after aborting what would have been her 2012 foal, she rebounded in no uncertain terms with Harzand.

Minding: the Belle of the ball The female family that produced Minding goes back to Belle Sauvage, whom Holliday acquired as a 3,700gns yearling in 1950. Belle Sauvage was Classically-bred on both sides of her pedigree as she was by Netherton Maid’s sire Big Game out of Tropical Sun, a Hyperion daughter who ran third in a wartime Oaks. The second dam, the French-bred Tropical Sun, was the Epsom Oaks winner of 1931. Belle Sauvage didn’t live up to that gaudy pedigree on the track, but did become an important broodmare. Her best runners were the Dee Stakes captor Pandour and

Noble Lassie, a daughter of Holliday favourite Nearco, who won the Lancashire Oaks. Another daughter of Belle Sauvage, Promised Lady, made her way to Germany where she produced three stakes winners, headed by German Horse of the Year, Lombard. Although he was generally a disappointment as a stallion, Lombard does appear as broodmare sire of Urban Sea, who through her sons Sea The Stars and Galileo appears in the pedigrees of Harzand and Minding. In 1964, the year prior to Holliday’s death, Noble Lassie was bred to Vienna. He was a


holliday mares very disappointing sire, but with Noble Lassie he did give an interesting pedigree – he was by Aureole, a son of Hyperion out of a mare by Turkhan (by Big Game’s sire, the Triple Crown winner Bahram), so bred on a reverse cross to Belle Sauvage, the dam of Noble Lassie. The result of this mating was Vaguely Noble. At two, racing for Holliday’s estate, Vaguely Noble won the last two of four starts, ending the year with a 7l victory in the Observer Gold Cup (now the Racing Post Trophy). Vaguely Noble – who due to Holliday’s death had no Classic engagements – was offered as part of the final group of horses from the estate at the 1967 Newmarket December Sales, realising a then worldrecord price of 136,000gns.

The purchaser was plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Franklyn, who shortly afterwards sold a half-share to Nelson Bunker Hunt. Sent to France to be trained by Etienne Pollet, Vaguely Noble won three of his first four races, and then placed himself among the best of his era with a 3l victory over that year’s Derby winner Sir Ivor in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe. Sent to stand at stud in the US, Vaguely Noble subsequently became a very successful sire and broodmare sire. Noble Lassie would later produce two sisters to Vaguely Noble. One of these was Vive La Reine, a winner over 1m4f in France, and later dam of the Champagne Stakes winner R.B. Chesne. Vive La Reine’s daughter Alathea – by Nijinsky’s Champion Stakes conqueror

Lorenzaccio – was unplaced on the track, but did produce a pair of smart runners in the Nureyev colts Great Commotion – a top older sprinter in Europe – and Lead On Time, successful in two Group sprints in France.

Hoity Toity and Danehill: heavenly match

Hiwaayati, a Shadeed half-sister to Great Commotion and Lead On Time, was unraced, as was her Darshaan daughter, Hoity Toity. However, crosses with the Danehill line enabled Hoity Toity to revive her branch of the Belle Sauvage family as she is dam of stakes winner Count Of Limonade (Duke Of Marmalade), and of Lillie Langtry (Danehill Dancer), and grand-dam of the Group winner Master Apprentice (by Danehill Dancer’s son, Mastercraftsman). A 230,000gns Tattersalls October Yearling purchase, Lillie Langtry raced in the colours of Michael Tabor. She earned a ranking as a top three-yearold miler in England and Ireland, and won five of 11 starts, including the Matron Stakes, Coronation Stakes, Debutante Stakes and Naas Fillies’ Sprint. Her first foal was Galileo’s daughter Kissed By Angels, winner of the Leopardstown 1,000 Guineas Trial, and she was followed a year later by Minding. Northern Dancer served his first season at stud the year that Holliday died, and the breeder’s use of Nearco, particularly his success with daughters of that horse, set his families up perfectly to receive Northern Dancer’s influence. Netherton Maid, by Nearco, was out of a mare by a grandson of Swynford, had a second dam by Solario (Gainsborough), which is similar to Northern Dancer’s sire Nearctic (by Nearco out of a mare by Gainsborough’s son, Hyperion, and with a third dam by Swynford). It is also a background similar to Royal Charger (by Nearco out of mare by Solario, with a second dam by a grandson of Swynford).  Vive La Reine was a Hyperion (Gainsborough)/Nearco cross, the reverse to Northern Dancer’s sire, Nearctic (Nearco/ Hyperion). Her descendent Minding has three crosses of Northern Dancer, including one through Sadler’s Wells, who is by Northern Dancer and out of a mare by a Royal Charger (Nearco/Solario (Gainsborough) cross) line mare.

usiness advisors always recommend planning ahead, keeping a close eye on the figures and reporting back on the business that you have been doing in order to enact change and keep things moving forward in profit. The unpredictable nature of the bloodstock and racing industries makes business planning tough: they are reliant on equine variables, the whims of owners, and sometimes volatile economic events that unravel unhelpfully just before the point of sale. For many, narrowing the business into facts and figures is just too tough, too unrelated to the horseman’s world and, perhaps, just too depressing – it is easier to examine other understood variables. Consignors Keith and Eileen Harte try as far as possible to take a different approach and aim to marry Keith’s embedded horsemanship skills with Eileen’s business acumen. “We want to take the unexpected out of the equation, business plan for profit and evolve the business in a structured format, rather than letting events become the deciding

factor,” is their strategic message. The bloodstock industry never sits still, and with the threat of overproduction [whatever that be termed, I prefer to call it a “neglected industry a lack of demand” ED] on the horizon and difficulties at many levels making the stud and racing books balance, the Hartes have decided to buck the numbers’ trend, concentrate on consigning quality rather than quantity, cut the numbers, hone the business and are aiming to develop a group-class broodmare band to stand alongside their seasonal and permanent boarders. A long hard look at their business performance last year, the trends they were perceiving in the industry, and an examination of their own and their farm’s strengths have helped them formulate plans. “We looked back at sales last year,” says Keith, “and found that although we had our largest draft of 30, we had the worst return. The figures just did not add up, the middle and lower market are tough places to sell and the returns can be minimal. “Due to the overall numbers at Tattersalls, we were based in a yard that we did not know, while it was also frustrating trying to

find enough good staff as there are now few around. It was a difficult year and we did not want to be in that position again.” Eileen adds: “We looked at the figures and came to the conclusion that we wanted our draft to be around 15 – our long term and regular sales staff can cover the work – and that is the size of the draft we have this year. “In the end it just evolved to those figures anyway. We had clients who sold as foals last year instead of yearlings, a few who did not get places in Book 2 so decided to sell elsewhere, and things have naturally fallen into place.” The move by the sales companies this year to limit the numbers directly had an influence on the Harte’s draft this year but, rather than rue the move, it was something welcomed by the couple and has focused their plans. “The sale companies are aware that we are heading back into a period of overproduction, and quite rightly have curtailed numbers meaning that some horses have to go to the ‘lesser’ sales to sell,” says Keith. “While we were making our plans, the sales companies announced their moves and have helped us to tailor our decision. We are delighted as they

It gives you something of a chance then to walk away in profit.” The Hartes, born and bred in Ireland, have been based at Woburn Stud in Bedfordshire for nearly four years now, moving to the farm from their first long-term British base at Shutford Stud when the Duchess Of Bedford, owner of the estate with her family, decided to close her highly regarded Bloomsbury Stud. Based on the estate at Woburn, next to the safari park, is an idyllic spot in which to live and produce horses, and the Hartes, who took a significant gamble with their business when moving from Shutford, a farm which had served them very well indeed, are pleased that they took the almost once-in-a-lifetime chance when it presented itself. “The farm works really well, and I can’t fault it in anyway, even for prepping the yearlings,” says Keith. “There is enough going on here, but not too much – the horses learn

You have to be in the top half both of the industry and at each individual sale; you have to confident that your lots will be in the better brackets to deal with situations and noise, but there is never so much that they get upset. “They certainly see plenty up at the abbey when they are walking in the park, but it is such a peaceful place here too.” “When we came to see the yard the Duchess showed us the yearling walks. They go right around the park and by the deer – there are 3000 here – and we just thought that she must be mad and that we couldn’t possibly do that with the horses!” laughs Eileen. “And the first few times,” admits Keith, “it was a little nerve wracking, but, in fact, the horses enjoy it. They love going on lots of different routes, there is little monotony.

Walking season: the yearlings cover around 3.5 miles around the Park on their walking days

They also get a huge perspective here, they can see everything so nothing comes as a surprise; they are not spookey and there is no silliness.” The yearlings quickly acclimatise to seeing the herds of deer dotted around the place, and the Hartes feel that the horses actually take some comfort from them – if the deer are relaxed and grazing, then the yearlings take their cue from their four-legged friends. The Hartes are also keen to ensure that the farm’s fine history of breeding and producing Group-class horses is not lost, and via an Enterprise Investment Scheme-funded broodmare band, a finance model they have successfully used for foal-to-yearling pinhooking, they are planning to create a deep pedigreed band of mares. With two mares already on the books, a projected book of ten and strong stallion coverings desired, the couple admit that they wouldn’t be in the position they are today without being able to make use of the EIS schemes. Eileen is the one tasked with finding the new investors required to take the mare numbers to double figures. “EIS has been vital to us – we wouldn’t be The yearlings enjoy their “Park-life” experience

So many people have

no idea that this could be affordable to them. “Even seemingly simple things are not appreciated. For instance, I am taking a group of people to Book 1, and they had no idea that anyone can just walk into a bloodstock sale. “And people get so excited, they love it because it is something different; they always want to know more. We hope that people come into a mare-ownership group, and it will encourage them further down the line to own a mare themselves.” Of course, financial investments can go

It can be difficult to explain why a stallion has gone out of fashion, or a nice foal has not grown as hoped. “We try and find an analogy with another business that they would understand or recognise – there is always a comparison to make, they go ‘yeah we understand now’. “We try and take the four-legged aspect

on mares bred to £50,000 stallions can be amazing. “The produce from mares in the middle market, you can struggle to even get your covering fee back. “Everyone says that when you sell you should aim to get back around two and a half times your covering fee, but when you look at the stats, people struggle to get a return on their covering fee.”

EH: ”Good staff are vital at the sales. With so many horses to look at, agents don’t have much time, so it is important that every second counts when they are with a horse. “It is absolutely crucial, it is like an interview, those first impressions really do count. “We do a lot of showing practice at Woburn, Keith holds ‘masterclasses’ and the staff who are good at it can be people who have never done it before. “Staff need to carry themselves well, and be in tune with the horse walking and standing it. They need to pay attention to what the buyer wants. “We have thought that should be a daylong industry course ahead of the sales season to ready people for the season. “Staff can earn good money through the autumn, if they are good showing people.”

The Hartes have taken a strategic business decision this season to keep yearling numbers to 15 to focus their efforts on quality rather than quantity

Sights and scenes from Ordos, which saw a crowd of 26,000. Teo Ah Khing (middle top left) of the China Horse Club was at the meeting, the club having long-leased the racecourse in order to hold race meetings

Paul Haigh reports from the recent China Horse Club-sponsored race meeting at Ordos in Inner Mongolia

T

o avoid confusion: Mongolia is a region divided into two parts. To the north is the vast independent country of Mongolia, sometimes called Outer Mongolia, whose capital is Ulan Bator. To the south, is Inner Mongolia, an also vast province of China, whose regional capital is Ordos. Most great cities grow organically. Ordos is a strange one in that it was built by central government about a decade ago specifically to become a great city, originally for several million people; to provide an urban hub in a

part of China that lacked one. Its raison d’etre was the coal mining industry in the area that surrounds it, which was then at its peak. Coal demand has since declined. As a result Ordos has far more housing than residents – some say there are as few as one million who actually live in it, though other estimates reckon two million. Its landscape is dominated by huge, towering and often uninhabited modern tower blocks that, along with many statues honouring Genghis Khan whose locality this was, have won for the place in other parts of China the nickname “ghost city”.

Ordos refuses to lie down though. It has a good airport, an excellent road system and spectacular sporting facilities, the most significant of which from our point of view being a racecourse at Yiqi (about 30 miles from central Ordos) that certainly stands comparison with any other in China and is perhaps eclipsed in Asia only by the greats of Japan, by Sha Tin and Happy Valley, and by Kranji. It also has a population in the city and the surrounding grasslands which is passionately and permanently addicted to, almost reverential towards in fact, The Horse.

This is where the Khan’s army, made up exclusively of cavalry (they took nothing with them but spare horses) moved out to conquer most of what was then the known world - and the people of Mongolia have not forgotten it. In spite of its remoteness (600 miles from Beijing, 200 miles from the Gobi desert) it made very good sense therefore for someone with an equal passion for horses to make use of the facility at Yiqi. Cue Teo Ah Khing, chairman and founder of the China Horse Club which has now been given a long-term lease to stage meetings there. On August 21 their race meeting, also known as the China Equine Cultural Festival, attracted a crowd of 26,000 people, only a couple of thousand less than the King George at Ascot and about the same as for the St.Leger. Impressive? Well, the Ordos spectators didn’t have to pay for entry and were given free transportation. But they couldn’t bet either (Mao’s law of 1949 forbids it) and given the relatively sparse population of Yiqi’s hinterland it was a pretty exciting turnout and demonstration of enthusiasm.

CHC’s already had two horses of the year: one in Europe (Australia) and the other in Australia (Dissident) both owned in partnership with Coolmore There was another significance to the lease too. It had to be approved by the local government, and their decision would surely have been referred to Beijing. We can infer from this that Beijing rather approves of the CHC and its efforts to project itself not just as a club for China’s new super-rich, but as an organisation determined to revive and foster China’s equine traditions and do charitable good works along the way. Of course, the rest of the racing world knows the CHC as the new kid on the

ordos racing block which has big money to spend at international sales and a presence already in every one of the major racing nations of the world. In the three years of its existence CHC’s already had two horses of the year, one in Europe (Australia) and the other in Australia (Dissident) both owned in partnership with Coolmore, which provides most of the horses that currently run in China and at Yiqi itself for club members. But the CHC is very much a dual-purpose enterprise. It aims to strengthen and enhance its image at home, correctly seeing approval by central government and by the horseloving Chinese public as essential to its well being, as well as to cater for its members’ desire to enjoy all the excitement and what its publicists refer to as “lifestyle” that goes with international racing at the top level. It was equally significant that Elliott Walden of WinStar, which stands Pioneerof the Nile, was one of the VIP guests at Yiqi. The CHC bought into Winstar’s Preakness winner Exaggerator before his Classic victory and will profit and benefit from him when he goes to stud.

Many horses in China were provided by Coolmore, while jockeys from a variety of backgrounds rode at Ordos, including British-based Daniel Muscatt

America and Britain top the lists of areas in which the CHC seeks to expand. Walden was also there to check out another CHC plan, which may seem a fantasy to some. CHC is keen to build a breeding industry in the grasslands north of Ordos that will in decades rival Kentucky and Ireland. Fanciful? Over ambitious? Well, it worked for Genghis, why not for his successors? Another VIP visitor of interest was the Hon. Allen M. Chastenet, Prime Minister of St Lucia. “What,” you’re no doubt thinking, “has St Lucia got to do with this?” They probably want another lifestyle holiday destination to go with their Alpine resort and their working horse farm and resort in southern New South Wales. Why not a Caribbean paradise? Well yes, but also no. It’s a project much grander than just that. Two weeks before the Ordos meeting it was announced that the government of St Lucia and one of Teo Ah Khing’s Desert Star companies, which let us not forget built Meydan, have just signed a deal to build next year a resort on the Caribbean island – and a racecourse and stabling for 1000 horses. The club foresees not just lifestyleenhancing opportunities for their members, but the attraction of racing tourists, particularly in winter, from Britain, Europe and North America. What they are planning is nothing less than the setting up of a racing industry on the island. Nobody’s ever accused the CHC of thinking small. So how did the meeting at Yiqi go? Well, in

CHC is keen to build a breeding industry in the grasslands north of Ordos that it is hoped will in decades rival Kentucky and Ireland a way it was a strange affair, not quite like a meeting as we’d know it anywhere else in the racing world. It had only four races for a start, three worth 500,000 yuan (about £45,000) and one worth one million yuan. The two-year-old race was won by a daughter of Paco Boy, the stallion owned by another VIP guest of note, the Hon. John Warren who, apart from being the Queen’s racing manager, is the new chairman of the China Horse Club’s International Advisory Committee. Jockey Daniel Muscat, granted leave of absence by Marco Botti, won one of the races, then finished second in the feature to the Russian champion. All jockeys were complimentary about the racing surface, a sand track, that was well cared for and stone-free. The other races went to Australian riders. There was no betting, not even a hint of

any illegality on what was essentially a family day out, but no one at any stage seemed even remotely bored. The gaps between the races were filled by local performers, dancing troupes in traditional Mongolian costume, a Mongolian singer with a magnificent voice and a Mongolian orchestra consisting solely of instruments called ‘horse head sitars’ that made a startling noise that was as arresting as it was musical. The day ended with the more or less obligatory fireworks, but nothing scared the horses except for a drone photographing the scene which put the wind up some of the two-year-old fillies. If all goes according to plan the China Horse Club will be back at Yiqi next year and for many years to come. But this doesn’t mean it will abandon its proselytising mission for racing in other parts of China. Last year it was at Wuhan, the year before at Shanghai. Rather less successfully, because of the weather, the year before that, its first, it was at Hohhot, also in Mongolia. This year the weather was perfect a 29 degrees with blazing sunshine. All visiting male guests were issued with Goodwoodstyle Panama hats, which most of them wore, a nice little touch that revealed the club’s willingness to take ideas from anywhere. The crowd, a CHC record, went home beaming as broadly as they had when they arrived. Rather like a shark that must keep driving forward to retain its buoyancy the CHC keeps driving forward.

Tintac

Intikhab-Susquehanna Days (Chief’s Crown)

Out of the pretty moderate Intikhab mare Tintac, Quebee (right) won a 0-90 handicap at Goodwood in August before gaining Listed success at Sandown

L

isted form is so vital for a filly – and particularly when she is a homebred and her siblings have not exactly been covering the family in glory. The hugs all round on the mid-week medium quality card (for Sandown anyway) when the diminutive filly Quebee took herself through a closing gap in the rail to gain her first Listed success, brought envious smiles from all onlookers. Trainer Clive Cox the recipient of bear hugs from owner-breeder Martin Collins. A successful businessman in the racing world, developer of the Martin Collins AllWeather surfaces that have supplied so many gallops and racecourses around the world, Collins must have been beginning to wonder if this breeding game really is worth the

Collins must have been beginning to wonder if this breeding game really is worth the effort, money and patience required effort, money and patience required. His broodmare Tintac, a daughter of Intikhab, was born in 2001, bred by Mrs CF Van Straubenzee and partners. Tintac went through the Tattersalls sale ring as a yearling failing to sell, and

reappeared in 2004 as a three-year-old in the same sale ring at the February sale when again she failed to sell. She had not made it to a raccourse by the that point and she remained conspicuous by her absence from the track right through until the following March when she finished sixth of six at the now-defunct Folkestone over 7f. By then Collins had gained ownership of the late-developing filly. On her next two starts she managed to beat two home each time before a dramatic improvement was seen (coincidentally once she had attained a handicap mark of just 47) when second by a half-length in May over a mile at Lingfield in a 0-45 (a race grading that is now almost also defunct). That was obviously her day of days as in five more starts she never again threatened

mare of the month to trouble the judge, beating only a handful of horses. She was even shipped to Wolverhampton racecourse to be trained by now-Frenchbased trainer Eoghan O’Neill in his former life when based at the track. That did not even reap rewards in three starts between December and January 2006. She was sent off to stud [for the purists in our bloodstock family sending a mare rated 45 to be bred from is tantamount to heresy], but she produced straight away giving birth to a filly by Pastoral Pursuits in 2007 called Zazy’s Gift. Sadly, Zazy’s proved to be no gift whatsoever – she ran twice finishing a 13l tailed-off last at Warwick in a maiden for fillies (admittedly it was a race which saw the first two home trained by Sir Henry Cecil and Sir Michael Stoute) and then a regressive 26l last in a maiden won by Tertiary for Saeed Bin Suroor at Brighton in October. She did not reappear. Tintac’s 2008 foal by Bahamian Bounty has not been honoured with a registered name at Weatherbys, but things made a dramatic improvment in 2009 with the appearance of Emmuska, a daughter of Sir Percy. She won four starts from 18 outings, all over a mile, one being at Sandown and three at Lingfield. She won an early September 2011 three-year-old maiden, then two handicaps in November off BHA marks of 73 and 76 and then was successful again the following spring off 75 at Lingfield. Very sensibly [ticks here now from the bloodstock world] Collins did not breed from his mare through 2009, 2010, or 2011 – clearly waiting to see if any of the mare’s first three foals achieved anything on the track before he added more of her 0ffspring to the world. Emmuska’s efforts persuaded Collins to roll the dice. And, again, a certain amount of nouse was

Cox holds Quebee in high regard as, subsequent to her success, he mentioned an ambitious trip to the US for the Grade 1 EP Taylor Stakes brought to play – in 2012 Tintac was sent back to visit the dependable and quite frankly under-rated sire Sir Percy, then available at £6,000, a £2,000 reduction on the covering fee that produced Emmuska. Quebee arrived in 2013 and was sent to Emmuska’s trainer Cox. Sir Percy worked his magic worked again. Quebee finished third on her sole start at two back at the family’s favoured Lingfield (behind one of Stoute’s and one pf Saeed Bin Suroor’s), second and then third on her first starts at three before getting off the mark off 74 at Warwick in May. She built on that winning off 84 at Warwick, but had a poor run of things caught wide in a 0-95 fillies’ handicap at Goodwood when fifth.

S

he was put up a pound for that out-of-the-places effort, a move by the handicapper that might have caused a raised eyebrow from the trainer. But his assessment was proved to be accurate – Quebee improved again to take a late-August 0-90 handicap at Goodwood. Upped then to a mark of 94, the sensible move for Cox was to find a Listed opportunity – the filly rewarded at Sandown beating the seven-year-old gelding and 116-rated South African import Yorker by a half length.

It was a fine performance, a well-plotted plan and her gritty attitude saw her get every yard of the mile trip making fine use of her fillies’ and weight-for-age allowance, despite being sent off a 16-1 chance. Cox holds Quebee in high regard as, subsequent to her success, he mentioned an ambitious trip to the US for the Grade 1 EP Taylor Stakes. Meanwhile, Tintac’s 2014 foal Milburn Jack, by Foxwedge, is in training but yet to run, she slipped her 2015 Swiss Spirit foal, but produced a filly by the Whitsbury Stud sire this spring. She visited the fashionable sire of this early spring, Fast Company. And while a prelimiary view of the mare would have dismissed her as not worthy of covering, a not-much-deeper exploration of her pedigree proves that she was worth a chance at stud. Tintac is a half-sister to the 1999 and 2001 Listed-placed Balladonia. She has the honour and laudable achievements of being the dam of Wootton Bassett, a third joint-top rated two-year-old in Europe in 2010, a champion juvenile in France and winner of the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardère (G1). He is now a leading European second-season stallion and sire of this year’s cur­rent top-rated three-year-old colt, Almanzor. Under her second dam and in the extended family can be found the fourth top-rated juvenile of 1993 Wessam Prince, and two champion stayers – Silver Patriarch and Papineau. Moving to the third dam, and admittedly quite considerably back in time, we transfer to the US where Fort Macy won 21 races and was a champion Turf horse in 1967 and 1970, and to Key To The Mint, a champion threeyear-old in 1971 and the winner of four Grade 1 races. Hugs all round – and there will be more to come if Quebee is successful in the US.
