the frankel foreword
We make no apology for giving two of our leading columnists a chance to put into writing how they felt when witnessing Frankel’s sublime performance at York. Paul Haigh believes that Frankel is “about as beautiful a creature as has ever been put on earth”, while Sue Montgomery says he treated “top-class middle-distance rivals with the same insouciantly cheerful contempt with which he had disposed of those in the mile division”. Admire Trevor Jones’s picture of the wonderful horse in the winners’ enclosure here, turn over to enjoy the wonderful performance in words. 6
the frankel foreword
the frankel foreword
good? The C4 gang had a shot at it, announcing proudly towards the end of their programme that they’d thought of a new name for him which was “Frankelstein”. Well, it does manage to convey something of his “otherness” perhaps. But it isn’t original, being in fact the rather disrespectful nickname applied by certain US press men during his lifetime to the trainer after whom Frankel is named. And while Frankel the horse may indeed, in the sense the word is used to denote greatness in racing, be a monster, if not The Monster, he’s certainly nothing like the one
He has the chest of a bull and the elegance of a teenage gymnast. When he came back to the winners’ enclosure after the Juddmonte International his toes were twinkling like Fred Astaire’s
he man who is closest to Frankel summed up the magnificent colt’s latest tour de force on behalf of everyone else who saw it, heard about it, tweeted about it and will in Turf history books read about it, assuming that skill is still available a generation down the line, writes Sue Montgomery. “Mindblowing,” said Sadeep Gauravaram, who looks after the champion at Warren Place. The formbook will record forever that Frankel won the Juddmonte International at York by 7l in a time nearly a second faster than standard, that he started at 1-10 favourite in a field of nine and the record book that it took his unbeaten tally to 13 and that it was an unprecedented eighth successive Group 1 victory. That, if you like, is the science. The art was the glorious sight of a supreme athlete rising to a new challenge with insulting ease, treating top-class middle-distance rivals with the same insouciantly cheerful contempt with which he had disposed of those in the mile division. The International was Frankel’s first attempt at 1m2f and, 40 years on, he laid the ghost of the defeat of Brigadier Gerard, whose winning run infamously came to an end at the hoofs of Derby winner Roberto. Frankel’s chief rival in the International was judged to be threetime Group 1 winner St Nicholas Abbey. The five-year-old, who was damned with faint praise by starting at 5-1 second favourite, had pacemakers Robin Hood and Windsor Forest to help him; Frankel’s comrades in arms were his faithful year-older half-brother Bullet Train and the previous year’s winner Twice Over. The pace was generous up front, with St Nicholas Abbey, his stamina proven, heading the pack behind the trailblazers. But the ploy by the Ballydoyle domestiques to try to draw Frankel’s sting came to precisely nothing. As the field swung into the straight it was apparent that the great horse was galloping with perfect composure
nd now what do you say? How do you describe something like this when you’ve wasted all your superlatives on other stuff which now turns out to have been no better than very, very
Dr Frankenstein put together. That one, at least in the Boris Karloff version, had a bolt through its neck, a complexion that looked as though it had been stitched together by a trainee sail maker on work experience, and an alarming tendency to lurch. Frankel on the other hand (could this be just imagination because he’s so close to perfection in almost every other respect?) is about as beautiful a creature as has ever been put on earth. He has the chest of a bull and the elegance of a teenage gymnast. When he came back to the winners’ enclosure after the Juddmonte International his toes were twinkling like Fred Astaire’s. So what do you say about him now he’s shown the theorising was correct and that perhaps he really is even better at middledistances than at a mile? The Yanks have got a song lyric that seems to fit at least a bit better than the other monster’s head. It
and as soon as Tom Queally asked, with barely more than a nudge, he surged past St Nicholas Abbey and stretched away. Farhh, the Godolphin representative who had chased Frankel home in the Sussex Stakes at Goodwood, pipped St Nicholas Abbey by a nose for another second spot, followed in at a wide interval by Twice Over, Bullet Train and Sri Putra. It was an electrifying performance, one to rank with Sea-Bird’s Arc or Secretariat’s Belmont Stakes for spinetingling brilliance, and the four-year-old, once Queally had managed to pull him up, returned to a from-the-heart ovation from the Yorkshire crowd. “They enjoyed that, didn’t they,” said the jockey, “and so did I. The strong pace made sure there was no funny business, it was end to end racing and the best horse won, and won comprehensively. “He was relaxed and in a rhythm and the race could’t have panned out better.” Cecil, seriously ill, had made the journey from Newmarket and welcomed his superstar in the winner’s circle with a quiet, appreciative pat on the top of his neck. “Fantastic,” he said, “makes me feel 20 years better.” The Champion Stakes at Ascot in October had been inked in as Frankel’s finale, but the intriguing prospect of a further step-up in distance before that, in the Arc, has not been entirely ruled out for Prince Khalid Abdullah’s home-bred celebrity. Frankel, with his physique, talent and charisma, is racing’s Usain Bolt, a rare flash of sporting lightning. Whether or not it will strike again remains to be seen, but those at Juddmonte are at least giving it a chance. Frankel was the result of his dam Kind’s first mating with Galileo; the less precocious and brilliant Noble Mission the second. The 11-year-old Danehill mare has a two-year-old, Morpheus, and a yearling by Oasis Dream. And, after a barren year, she is now due in January to Galileo once more.
starts: “Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the lord”. A few words about the race itself before someone starts calling for the nurse with the verbal incontinence pads. Frankel broke quite sluggishly and was settled by Tom Queally near the rear behind a fast pace set by two of the Ballydoyle pacemakers, Robin Hood and Windsor Castle, who had headed the great one’s normal lead horse, his half-brother Bullet Train. It was a sensible bid to defeat Frankel’s pace by finding some weakness in his stamina over a distance two and a half furlongs further than he’d ever raced before. It was obvious that they’d failed more than three furlongs from home, and not just that they’d burnt themselves out, but that their going off fast had stretched the two supposed main threats to the champion almost to the limit of their own resources. Tom Queally brought Frankel to the stands’ rail as the field fanned across the track, and as the leaders faltered, we were treated to the amazing sight of the Breeders’ Cup Turf winner St Nicholas Abbey being driven as hard two furlongs out as though he was in sight of the post, while Frankel went past him on the bridle. Frankel drew away as Frankel does, to win his record-breaking eighth consecutive Group 1 victory by 7l. His aggregate winning distance is now 75l.
odolphin’s Farrh tried hard without ever being able to give any hint that he might interfere with the victory procession, although he did manage to put his nose in front of the spent St. Nicholas Abbey on the line. Fourth, beaten a total 15l, was last year’s International winner and dual Champion Stakes winner, Twice Over, who only a couple of years ago ran a respectable third on his only non-turf outing to the great mare Zenyatta in the Breeders’ Cup Classic. So where does Frankel go from here? Britain’s leading bookmakers, reacting almost hysterically to what they’d seen, immediately announced that if it were decided that Frankel should step up another couple of furlongs for the Arc, they would be prepared to lay him at no better odds than 1/4. What does that say about his immense superiority over the probable Triple Crown winner Camelot, last year’s magnificent Arc winner Danedream, the Eclipse winner Nathaniel and the comeback queen Snow
Kind, the dam of Frankel, seen here at Juddmonte’s Banstead Manor. She is back in foal to Galileo
Fairy, not to mention the Japanese champion Orfevre? Some, forgetting perhaps that the Breeders’ Cup hasn’t lived up to its “World Racing Championships” title for around a decade now, have suggested the Breeders’ Cup Classic as a finale before he goes to stud at what seems certain to be a six-figure fee. Unless Prince Khalid Abdullah wants to pay further tribute to Bobby Frankel however, that surely isn’t going to happen. Frankel’s own trainer might not be up to making the trip, whether or not he’d like to, the surface isn’t suitable and, in any case, the Breeders’ Cup certainly needs Frankel far more than Frankel needs the Breeders’ Cup. By far the most likely last target before stud looks to be the British Champion Stakes at Ascot in mid-October. Let’s hope there are no quagmires to blunt his brilliance, no Acts of God (in the insurance sense) to somehow prevent him from going out on the triumphal note he should. Something has to be said here about Sir Henry Cecil. Sir Henry’s own story is so extraordinary, his peaks and troughs so spectacular, that, to use the useful cliché, no novelist would dare to invent him. The arrival of this astonishing horse in his care is a gift the religious might regard
as divine intervention; and the way he has brought Frankel on from headstrong dazzler to what it now seems certain we are going to look back on as the greatest racehorse of all time is a tremendous argument in favour of the notion that Cecil may not be just the most popular trainer there’s ever been in Britain, but the most talented too. Defying his cancer, Cecil went racing for the first time in two months at York on August 22. At present, he is a shadow of his former physical self, but it is now a longer shadow than even he has ever cast before. Although he had to speak in a whisper, it is a whisper that’s louder than any shouting, he said that seeing Frankel made him feel “Twenty years better”. How wonderful it would be if that were true. Like a few tall and languid old men fighting sickness he has a beautiful elegance about him too. There is something strangely apposite as well as touching about the connection between this great man and the horse that is the epitome of perfect health and exuberance. That well-known racing hack John Keats, anticipating Frankel/Cecil no doubt, wrote that “Beauty is truth, truth beauty – that is all ye know on earth and all ye need to know”. “Glory, glory hallelujah” as the nice song continues. Their truth goes marching on.

Redoute’s Choice to stand in France Leading Australian sire to shuttle to Aga Khan’s Haras de Bonneval In a commercial deal between the Aga Khan Studs and Arrowfield Farm, the leading Australian sire Redoute’s Choice is to shuttle to the Aga Khan’s Haras de Bonneval, France for the 2013 Northern Hemisphere season. It is the first time that the stallion will have left Australia and his fee has already been published at €70,000. A son of the international champion sire Danehill, Redoute’s Choice has twice been a champion sire in Australia, as well as a champion sire of two-year-olds and a champion first-season sire. To date he is the sire of 89 stakes winners (11 per cent of his runners), with 21 of those being individual Group 1 winners. He retired to Arrowfield Stud in 2000. His leading performers include the Golden Slipper Stakes winner and five-time Group 1 winner Miss Finland, the three-time Group 1 winner Samantha Miss and Stratum, also a winner of the Golden Slipper. Redoute’s Choice has had five winners (Racing Post stats) from a handful of runners in Europe from mares bred on northern hemisphere time. In South Africa, Mike De Kock trains the Group 1 winner Musir. He is also proving to be a major sire of sires and 10 sons have already produced stakes winners. Six of those stakesproducing sons, including Snitzel, Stratum and Not A Single Doubt, have already had Group 1 winners. Georges Rimaud, manager of the Aga Khan Studs in France said, “We are very excited to have Redoute’s Choice on our stallion roster for 2013 and we
Georges Rimaud believes that Redoute’s Choice will be a “significant addition” to the French stallion ranks
will be sending at least 15 of our own mares to him. In recent years, Royal Ascot has proven that the Australian sprinting thoroughbred is comparable with the best in the world. “Redoute’s Choice is the dominant stallion in Australia and he has already, from limited exposure, sired major winners from mares by European stallions such as Kingmambo, Caerleon, Last Tycoon, Rainbow Quest and Nureyev. This is a wonderful opportunity to send
northern hemisphere mares to one of the best stallions in the world today, and he will undoubtedly have a strong and lasting impact on the European bloodstock industry. Furthermore, he will be a very significant addition to the stallion ranks in France, which will give an enormous boost to the French breeding industry.” Arrowfield’s John Messara stated: “We are particularly delighted with this arrangement not only because His Highness
the Aga Khan and some of the world’s most influential breeders will support Redoute’s Choice, but also because we already have the comfort of a strong working relationship with the Aga Khan Studs through our mare ventures. “We think this expanded alliance will give Redoute’s Choice the opportunity to create a truly global legacy.” Redoute’s Choice joins Sea The Stars, Dalakhani, Azamour, Sinndar and Siyouni on the Aga Khan Studs’ roster for 2013.
Mayson bought by Cheveley Park Newmarket Stud buys majority share in the July Cup winner
CHEVELEY Park Stud in Newmarket has purchased a majority share in the July Cup winner Mayson. The son of Invincible Spirit will continue to race in the colours of his breeder David Armstrong and will be trained by Richard Fahey for the remainder of the year. He will retire to stand at David and Patricia Thompson’s Cheveley Park Stud for the 2013 covering season. Cheveley Park Stud managing director Chris Richardson said: “Mr and Mrs Thompson are delighted to secure the future of Mayson for British breeders; he complements Cheveley Park Stud’s highly proven and commercial portfolio of stallions in every way. “Mayson is currently the highest-rated foremost sprinter of 2012, following his impressive win in the Group 1 July Cup at Newmarket.” Armstrong said: “I could not be more delighted that Mayson’s
future as a stallion will be at Cheveley Park Stud, an operation with whom my wife, Emma, and I have enjoyed doing business over the years, and we look forward to this continuing for many years to come.” Mayson is a son of Haydock Sprint Cup winner Invincible Spirit, whose tally of seven Group 1 winners also includes the Prix Maurice de Gheest winner Moonlight Cloud. He is the only foal produced by Mayleaf, an unraced daughter of Cheveley Park’s Pivotal. Mayson won over 5-6f as a juvenile and was Listed-placed at three. This season he has won the Abernant Stakes and Palace House Stakes, as well as the July Cup, which he won by 5l from The Cheka. Connections will be hoping that he might emulate his sire by winning the Haydock Sprint Cup in September before taking up an entry in the Qipco British Champions Sprint.

Arqana and France Galop partner in Chinese plans France Galop and auction house Arqana have been chosen as partners in the development of the new $2 billion state of the art racing centre being built at Tianjin, 150km from the Chinese
capital Beijing. France Galop will initially provide help in the fields of veterinary and anti-doping science, as well as the organisation of a racing calendar with “international significance”, while Arqana will be exclusively responsible for setting up a sales structure for the venture. “This is our first step in China,” said Arqana chairman Eric Hoyeau. “This accord represents a major opportunity not only for
Arqana but for the whole French breeding industry.” The agreement follows a similar deal made in April between the Irish government, Coolmore Stud and the co-sponsors of the Tianjin Equestrian City project to produce horses and bloodstock for the venture. The project will involve establishment of a stud farm, stocked with broodmares sourced from Ireland. The beginning
of the breeding programme involves an agreement to import over 100 mares in the next three years. Coolmore was invited as the initial joint venture partner, but it is invisaged that there will be opportunities for other Irish companies and individuals to participate in the project as it develops. Tianjin is being built as a co-venture by the Chinese government and the Malaysian

Deauville and the Olympics made a great month
a mile from the racecourse. Generous, well-hedged sites, excellent showers and wifi at the campsite café made for a great stay. Our two nights, breakfast and generous calvados nightcaps for the pair of us at the camp site, was cheaper than two petit déjeuners at the Royal or Normandy hotels. However, I must admit that it was pretty good getting back to sleeping on a mattress again once back in Britain...! The sales were strong at the top end, but there was a high level of buy backs. Plenty of publicity was given to the first Sea The Stars yearlings, and his sales-topping colt out of Alpine Rose was a particularly good type, especially for a first foal. He is due to run under the colours of Sheikh Joann Al Thani, brother to Sheikh Fahad, who has enjoyed such great early success with Makfi, Dunaden, Side Glance, Pearl Secret and Dever Dream, as well as being the driving force behind Qipco. A third brother, Sheikh Mohammed, had a facile two-yearold winner, What A Name, on just his second start at Deauville. Interestingly, Sheikh Fahad is reported to have turned down
the chance to buy Patinack Farm’s horses, the thoroughbred operation of Nathan Tinkler, who burst on the Australian racing scene four years ago. The owner looks as though he could be leaving it just as dramatically.

bemoaned the poor weather and Aidan O’Briens lack of success at Naas in my previous column so I am delighted to report Ballydoyle had a double at the track the following week with Empowered and Learn, and even the weather gods have wrong-footed me and have relented in some parts of the country. Goodwood and Deauville, as well as York’s first day, were all blessed with an absence of rain and even some sunshine. Over 100,000 people enjoyed Glorious Goodwood week and Frankel, looking even better than at Ascot, thrilled his admirers in the Sussex Stakes. He then surpassed this at York in front of 30,000 racegoers and Tom Queally’s only problem was pulling him up. The “Deauville weekend” saw great success for British-based trainers the week after Excelebration had shown what a star he might have been, but for Frankel. Trainers Marco Botti, William Muir, Clive Cox and Ed Dunlop shared the valuable Group prizes. Given the right weather, Deauville is pretty well unbeatable as a sales and racing venue. It was even pleasant camping this year and Liam Norris and I managed to secure a tent site barely
The deal was knocked back, with apparently one source familiar with the offer describing it as “wishful thinking on Mr Tinkler’s behalf”. As all will be aware, racing had to compete with the Olympics for most of August. Fortunately, we have had Frankel to rival champions such as Mo Farah and Usain Bolt. Yorkshire also came up trumps, winning as many golds as Australia and Japan. There are interesting parallels to be drawn between racing and the Olympic stance on drugs. The World Anti-Doping Agency tested every medal-winning competitor and has a list of 240 substances to investigate. It also has samples frozen for eight years in order for historical analysis as new technology is developed further down the line. This surely should happen for tests taken on Group 1 winners as so much is at stake, particularly for a stallion’s stud career. The taint of a positive and the removal of that blacktype would be a suitable deterrent. It was Hyperion’s trainer George Lambton who forced the Jockey Club to initially take action in the early 1900s: he doped five of his own horses, which then showed dramatic improvement in form. The move
the news Development Group TAK, whose managing director Teo Ah Khing highlighted the potential the area has in terms of wealth and population. “Tianjin’s GDP was in the region of $1.1 trillion last year, while the region offers the densest concentration of Chinese population anywhere in the world,” he said. “We have many potential breeders and owners thanks to China’s growing wealth. In order to retain those enthusiasts at home, we are arranging partnerships such as these.” Referring to Arqana’s role in
the project, he added: “In our opinion we are entering into a partnership with one of the world’s most successful auction houses.” Teo was asked why French involvement had been sought following the deal in Ireland earlier in the year. “We have the aim of launching the breeding and sales side of the project in 2014,” Teo explained. “It’s an undertaking that no one person or body can manage by themselves. “As latecomers to the industry, we have the luxury of being able to choose the best in the industry
with which to develop.” Both agreements highlight the need for foreign expertise in training Chinese practitioners in all aspects of racing and equine science. The infrastructure at Tianjin has an initial budget of $2bn, with locally recognised races to be staged in 2014 before a more internationally relevant programme is brought in the following year. China currently allows betting only in the former colonial territories of Hong Kong and Macau, but the Tianjin development is likely to herald
a move to introduce gambling on horses to the wider mainland population. “China has a population of 1.35 billion and to introduce gambling on such a scale overnight could be problematic,” said Teo. “The Chinese government is aware they must get the system right and I am sure with a project like this betting will follow.” The €1.5bn Tianjin complex will cover 870 acres and include two racetracks, five training tracks, an equestrian college, an auction house, 4,000 stables and 150 trainers’ offices. Carnegie
convinced the authorities that serious malpractices were indeed taking place and could have serious effects on the integrity of racing. Olympic positives have been for cocaine, benzedrine, strychnine, steroids, human growth hormones and EPO. East German athletes were once even subject to “abortion doping” as pregnancy brings about a 60 per cent increase in blood volume and a surge in hormones. I was lucky enough to win my first Ascot Gold Cup with Indian Queen when she was in-foal to Night Shift. The offspring, Prince Of India, was the best foal she had; many other fillies have shown a real improvement when in-foal. One substance athletes can, and do, use is sodium bicarbonate which is permitted and helps combat the effects of lactic acid build-up. Jonathan Folland of Loughborough University proved that 20gms of the substance taken an hour before a race can improve performance by a second in a 200m swim. Eight out of nine swimmers did their best times after taking bicarbonate – it is possible that the ninth had an upset stomach, which is the only downside of using it. It is not dangerous, but it tastes appalling and can make you want to retch. At present the International Olympic Committee (IOC) does not ban the use of sodium bicarbonate,
however their use may be considered a violation of the IOC Doping Rule. In horses, “milk shakes” have been extensively, and successfully, used. Many countries have banned the practice and have now adopted prerace testing, which is the only chance to test for the substance. The Olympics is no stranger to wierd techniques and basic cheating in order for athletes to get their medals. Many original Olympians were said to compete on specially treated lizard meat, while in 1904 the demoted marathon gold medallist, Fred Lorz, got a lift in a car for 11 miles! The silver medallist, Thomas Hicks, who was later awarded the gold, was injected with strychnine and gulped brandy in order to help him complete. On a more serious note, a significant group of US breeders and owners have formed a Water, Hay, Oats Alliance to restrict performanceenhancing drugs on race days. They are convinced federal legislation is the only way to solve the drug problem in US racing. Until now trainers with drug violations seem to walk away unscathed and end up with more horses. But statistics show that 50 years ago annual starts per horse were just over 11 compared to just over six now, while lifetime starts per horse have fallen from 45 to 13.
Arc winner Carnegie put down at 21 DARLEY sire Carnegie has been put down at Kelvinside Stud, New South Wales, Australia at the age of 21. The son of Sadler’s Wells was Sheikh Mohammed’s first Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe winner in 1994. Out of Detroit, herself a 1980 Arc winner, Carnegie also won the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud, as well as three further Group races. He began his stud career in Japan and shuttled to New Zealand where his first crop included Victoria Derby winner Amalfi and Rosehill Guineas winner Carnegie Express. Carnegie was also the sire of multiple Group 1 winners Tuesday Joy, Perlin and Vision And Power. He spent his last seven years as an active sire at Kelvinside before he was retired from stud duty at the end of the 2008 season. “Carnegie was a magnificent racehorse who won the most cherished prize in European racing and he went on to have a distinguished career at stud,” said Darley’s director Henry Plumptre of the stallion who was one of the first to stand in Australia under the Darley banner. “Everyone at Darley will remember him fondly as he had a wonderful temperament and was such a pleasant horse to be around.”
Stud plans confirmed for Union Rags and Bodemeister UNION Rags, the winner of the Belmont Stakes on his final start and retired after a minor injury to his suspensory ligament, is to stand at Lane’s End Farm, Kentucky, while Bodemeister has been retired to WinStar Farm. The son of Empire Maker sustained nerve damage to his left shoulder, possibly caused when stumbling during training at Del Mar in August. Union Rags follows in the footsteps of his sire Dixie Union and grandsire Dixieland Band, who both stood at Lane’s End. “Union Rags has all the makings of a top stallion. He was a brilliant racehorse with outstanding conformation, and he has an exceptional pedigree,” said William Farish, owner of Lane’s End. Trained by Michael Matz, Union Rags was a leading two-yearold winning the Grade 2 Saratoga Special Stakes and the Grade 1 Champagne Stakes. He also finished second to Hansen in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile. He returned this season with a dominant victory in the Grade 2 Fountain of Youth Stakes before running third in the Grade 1 Florida
...for leading sales consignor Ted Voute, who voices his opinion on all things bloodstock and sales-related
It’s Russian roulette below the top lots
or the first time in 20 years my room at the Helios hotel in Deauville was given up to another (hopefully a nextgeneration, bloodstock agent or industry participant) as we did not travel over for this year’s Arqana August sale. My room had been automatically booked each and every year since I had attempted to sell Pure Grain at the sale as a yearling. In those days the sale was conducted in French Franc’s, but my only recollection was a room rate in Euros of about €40. This year it would have cost €81, but it is still the best value in Deauville, though even the softness of the bed is hardly
noticeable when you collapse after a session in Le Drakkar! The only good thing about not going to Deauville was that this year I won’t have a Visa card bill dropping on my desk as I head to Tattersalls...! The sale, which is a good barometer for the European season, was easily followed on the internet with great coverage by an obviously male camera man. He managed to pick out most of the pretty girls in the audience, and Mrs Yoshida, who was fast asleep during one session while waiting for her husband to purchase a yearling. It was easy to see online which horses sold and which weren’t – the camera man had a gut instinct of not filming buy-backs, or perhaps he had
Derby. Following an unlucky seventh in the Kentucky Derby, he recorded a narrow victory over Paynter in the Belmont Stakes. Union Rags is out of triple winner Tempo, a Gone West daughter of Grade 2 winner Terpsichorist, a sister to the high-class British twoyear-old Gorytus. Bodemeister twice finished second to I’ll Have Another when runner-up in the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness. He won the Grade 1 Arkansas Derby in April. “The positive thing is that we now know what the issue is and it’s treatable. Bodemeister will be back to full health,” said Elliott Walden, president and CEO at WinStar. “Unfortunately, he would not be able to come back as a racehorse in time to make any of the year-end goals such as the Breeders’ Cup, so Mr. Zayat, Mr. Moreno and myself came to the conclusion that it was best to retire him.” Bodemeister was bought as a yearling at Keeneland by Ahmed Zayat for $260,000. He is out of Untouched Talent, a Grade 3-winning daughter of Storm Cat and retires with earnings of $1,304,800. prior knowledge... The sale results were similar to the US sales at Fasig-Tipton July and Saratoga. The top of the market is extremely vibrant and yearlings clearly can now demand €1,000,000 or $1,000,000. The time has definitely returned for the million £ yearling – and there just might be more than one. The demand and the competition for the best yearlings is high, especially as many have recently gone on to win Classics and Group 1s. It is not that difficult for the many bloodstock agents to identify the likely top horses, but by the time the stringent vetting has been completed, few remain to be shared between a multitude of buyers, who want the very best with the addition of residual value either as a broodmare or a stallion pedigree. This area of the market is very vibrant, but, just underneath, it is a mine field of good-looking, perfectly respectable and clean yearlings, who play Russian roulette in the sale ring. Deauville demonstrated with a 60 per cent clearance rate in the second part of the select sale that selected sales presenting the best French-bred yearlings have a limited domestic market, even with a vibrant French Premium system. I find that if you take a very good yearling to Deauville you can get well paid, but if you tried to cheat the
system and take one which might be on the small side, or just because it had a French horse in the pedigree, you often end up taking your yearling home. Arqana alluded to the fact that there weren’t enough smart yearlings to meet demand, and this comment could have been aimed at the foreign consignors who elected to sit out this year, or even Haras du Grand Chene, which is debuting at the Tattersalls Millions catalogue with a smart consignment. This brings us to the revamped French Premium system, which appears to have upset half of the breeders in France, including the Aga Khan whom I understand is more upset by the lack of consultation than perhaps the contents. Elizabeth Doumen wrote a refreshing and intriguing piece in the Racing Post explaining the French Premium system. I have never been a supporter of promoting mediocrity by subsidising mares visting only the stallions in the country in question, rather than improving the quality of produce by using the best available. Mrs Doumen’s article made a good case and now, ironically, with the Aga Khan standing Redoute’s Choice, France should attract a great book of quality mares who can all consider the French Premium option by leaving their mare in France.

Richard Hughes (pink) picked up a pretty decent spare ride on The Fugue in the Nassau Stakes. The daughter of Dansili won the Group 1 race by a length
Gosden continues to prove his Glorious way with the fillies The Fugue added her name to Gosdenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growing list of 2012 Group 1-winning fillies when successful in the Nassau Stakes at the August Goodwood meeting
Being an owner-breeder can be the hardest and most dispiriting game in the world and I am very lucky that I train for some good ones
hose looking for a profitable betting system this season could have done worse than an each-way investment on any of John Gosden’s contenders in a European Group 1 filly and mare contest, writes Sue Montgomery In the 12 such races run since the 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket in May to the Nassau Stakes at Goodwood, the Newmarket trainer had fielded 12 runners: five of them won, and only two were unplaced. The Fugue was the 12th different winner of the series, but, had luck gone her way, she probably would have won the Oaks en route.
At Epsom she was badly hampered about a mile from home and was shuffled back to last place, yet she made up so much ground and finish with such verve that her third place finishe was only three-quarters of a length behind the winner Was. At Goodwood, The Fugue set that particular record straight. Always going easily for Richard Hughes, she caught trailblazing Timepiece inside the final furlong and quickened away to take the prize by a length, with Was a creditable but one-paced third. The Fugue, bred and owned by Lord and Lady Lloyd-Webber’s Watership Down Stud, became the mount of Hughes after Gosden’s stable jockey William Buick opted for stablemate Izzi Top. “She was,” Hughes said with considerable understatement after the race, “what I call a good spare ride.” The Irishman met the daughter of Dansili for the first time in the parade ring. “From the time I got on her,” he said, “there was a lovely rhythm about her. She floated, and in the race the more I kept her in check, the more she felt ready to go. She was like an elastic band, ready to be pinged.” Before Goodwood, The Fugue had been beaten into second in the Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot, a result which Gosden blamed on the unseasonally soft ground. “The Fugue has little ballerina feet,” he said of the dark brown three-year-old, “and ballerinas don’t dance well on a swamp.” Four of Gosden’s Group 1-winning fillies carry the colours of their British breeders: The Fugue for Watership Down, Izzi Top (Pivotal) for Meon Valley Stud, Fallen For You (Dansili) for Normandie Stud and Great Heavens (Galileo) for the Rothschild family. The US-bred Elusive Kate (Elusive Quality), owned by Teruya Yoshida, was a $70,000 yearling purchase. “Being an owner-breeder can be the hardest and most dispiriting game in the world,” said Gosden, “and I am very lucky that I train for some good ones. And lovely fillies like these, the broodmares of the future, keep up the interest.” The Fugue’s origins at Watership Down go back to the purchase of her second dam Sumoto at the Tattersalls December Sales as a ten-year-old in 2000. Cost and value are not always the same thing but as far as that daughter of Mtoto was concerned, she was a bargain at any price. It has been well-documented that, as a cast-off from Hascombe and Valiant Studs as a seven-year-old, she was bought by
Jim Furlong for 6,500gns. By the time he traded her back she was dam of Compton Admiral, winner of an Eclipse Stakes, and of the promising Summoner, who was to win a Queen Elizabeth II Stakes. Two fillies from the family, Whitefoot and Balisada, had also upgraded the pedigree by winning an Oaks trial and the Coronation Stakes. Second time through the ring she made 950,000gns, but the outlay has been worth every penny, as she has turned out to be both a commercial producer and a supplier of seedcorn. Her five colts, sold as yearlings, made, in chronological order: 460,000gns (Anchor, by Inchinor), 580,000gns (Talenti, by Sadler’s Wells), 240,000gns (King Of Cult, by Kingmambo), 290,000gns (Sumbe, by Giant’s Causeway) and $500,000 (Mureb, by Elusive Quality). In all, she produced eight winners but, ironically, none of her trysts with some of the world’s best stallions resulted in better runners than the much-less fashionably bred Compton Admiral (Suave Dancer) or Summoner (Inchinor). Sumoto died five years ago at the age of 18. But her legacy as a top-level producer lives on through her first foal planned by the LloydWebbers, the Sadler’s Wells filly Twyla Tharp, dam of The Fugue. The Nassau Stakes heroine was the 11th top-level winner, of which six have been fillies, for Banstead Manor resident Dansili. As well as The Fugue, her stablemate Fallen For You (Coronation Stakes) and Giofra (Falmouth Stakes) have won Group 1 contests this season for the stallion who
uk racing have been unwise on a tricky downhill track on a potentially explosive horse preparing for his first try over 1m2f in the Juddmonte International. Keeping the touch paper unlit was the drill at Goodwood in the preliminaries and in the race, Frankel seemed as settled as he had ever been. Queally ranged the four-year-old alongside his pacemaker Bullet Train 2f out, asked for the turbo boost soon after and was able to ease down before the line, 6l in front of Farhh. “I have a very easy job,” said Queally, “all I have to do is steer.” Cecil was not well enough to travel from Newmarket to Goodwood, but, as well as Frankel, his runners Noble Mission, Chachamaidee and Wild Coco gave him plenty to cheer about from a distance. Wild Coco: the filly by Shirocco won the Lillie Langtry Stakes for Tom Queally and Sir Henry Cecil
No one, apart from the highest of rollers, was going to get rich backing Frankel, who was sent off at 1-20
retired in 2001 at £8,000, but who this year commanded a fee of £75,000. The Fugue was conceived off an advertised fee of £65,000 in 2009, while Giofra’s covering year in 2o08 was marketed at £75,000. Banstead Manor, of course, will be the home next year of the champion Frankel, who made it 12 from 12 in the Sussex Stakes (G1) and became the first dual winner of the premier Group 1 contest at Goodwood. As he did last year, Prince Khalid Abdullah’s mighty son of Galileo beat just three rivals, headed this time by the sportingly and profitably-entered Godolphin representative Farhh, whose second place earned connections more than three times the cost of his supplementary entry fee. No one, apart from the highest of rollers, was going to get rich backing Frankel, who was sent off at 1-20. But nonetheless the faithful trooped up the hill to the top of the Sussex downs in their tens of 1000s for the “I-was-there, I-saw-him moment”. And he did not disappoint, strolling home in his usual imperious style. Unlike at Royal Ascot, where the Sir Henry
Cecil-trained colt won the Queen Anne Stakes by 11l, rider Tom Queally did not ask him to put on an exhibition, which would
he mating between Galileo and the Danehill mare Kind produced very different results in Frankel and his three-year-old brother Noble Mission. The younger horse is less precocious and flamboyant than his celebrated sibling and although not as good either, is getting better. His on-the-nod nose defeat of another progressive type in Enke (by Kingmambo out of Irish Oaks and Vermeille heroine Shawanda) in the Group 3 Gordon Stakes was as determined as it was narrow. Chachamaidee found compensation for her Royal Ascot Windsor Forest Stakes runner-up spot, a race in which she blew the start, by easily becoming the first female winner of the
Saddlers Rock: everything was wrong at Ascot, but he put in a career-best to win the Goodwood Cup
Hawkeyethenoo (black and yellow): jockey Graham Lee has now had four rides at Goodwood, finishing second three times and winning the Stewards’ Cup
Lennox Stakes. Seven furlongs is perfect for the Tony Evans-owned five-year-old, now the best Group 2 winner by Foostepsinthesand, and the talented runner-up Libranno had no answer to her turn of foot. Gestüt Röttgen’s Wild Coco, a filly by Shirocco, returned from nearly a year off to take the Group 3 mile-and-three-quarter fillies’ contest, staying on strongly in front of French raider Jehannedarc and Royal Ascot winner Estimate. Those who considered that Saddler’s Rock had been unlucky not to win Royal Ascot’s Gold Cup included trainer John Oxx and rider Johnny Murtagh, and the four-year-old duly collected in the Goodwood Cup (G2). The Sadler’s Wells four-year-old had been undone by a slow, tactical pace when a close third on the soft to Colour Vision at Ascot but, in the rematch, benefited both from a strong gallop set by early leaders Chiberta King and Electrolyser, as well as the faster ground. “If it had been only one thing that went wrong at Ascot we might have got away with it,” said Oxx. “The ground was soft, the pace was a crawl, he clipped heels and that lit him up and he started to pull, which is most uncharacteristic. It was very much the one that got away.” Colour Vision carried his Gold Cup penalty with credit in third, finishing just behind length runner-up Askar Tau (Montjeu), but Saddler’s Rock was in command in the closing stages, despite idling in front. From Sadler’s Wells’s final crop, he clearly has the talent to give his late sire one last Group 1 hurrah. At the other end of the distance spectrum,
the Australian mare Ortensia bounced back to form in the 5f Group 2 King George Stakes. The seven-year-old, a winner of the Al Quoz Sprint at Meydan in March, had not been seen at her best on soft ground in either the Jilly Cooper and Ryan Moore after the Oak Tree Stakes, which Moore won aboard Regal Realm
King’s Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot or the July Cup at Newmarket, but with conditions in her favour she was not troubled to give weight and a clear beating to some third-division European sprinters. The best by Vinery resident Testa Rossa (Danehill), she is trained by Paul Messara at Arrowfield in New South Wales and has been based this summer at Newmarket. Though outpaced early in the downhill dash, she found her stride to lead inside the final furlong and power away from Spirit Quartz and Masamah. The meeting’s feature sprint handicap was a closer affair, with barely 3l covering the first 14 home. The Hawk Wing six-year-old Hawkeyethenoo, trained in Scotland by Jim Goldie, prevailed by a nose from Imperial Guest. The Nassau Stakes was Hughes’s fourth success of the Goodwood week and sealed his third successive jockeys’ title at the fixture. The leading trainer was Mark Johnston, and here was another road to betting riches – had anyone had the foresight to know that the Middleham trainer’s horses were going to choose the Glorious meeting to hit glorious form. Remarkably, five of his seven winners came in handicaps, with two from the same horse, Landaman. The Darley-bred Cape Cross four-year-old took both the week’s opening contest and its finale, with contributions from Hurricane Higgins, Sir Graham Wade and Fulbright between times. The other two were juveniles, the Raven’s Pass colt Steeler in the 7f maiden and Heavy Metal (Exceed And Excel) in the Group 2
Richmond Stakes. In staying on gamely to account for Master Of War, the Darley-bred Heavy Metal thwarted a five-timer in the 6f contest for the runner-up’s trainer Richard Hannon. Heavy Metal also contributed to an excellent week for Dalham Hall inmate Exceed And Excel, who was also responsible for the first two in the Group 3 Molecomb Stakes, Bungle Inthejungle and Morwawij, plus Fulbright and Masamah. Goodwood week coincided with the London Olympics, and for those who sighed nostalgically over Danny Boyle’s version of long-lost bucolic Britain portrayed at the opening ceremony, perhaps a visit to the Duke of Richmond’s estate atop the Sussex Downs was the answer. The country’s loveliest racecourse now encompasses three centuries of sport and, just as in 1802, when the venue’s first winner Pantagruel galloped six miles in three heats and peasants still wore smocks, rolling ripe cornfields glitter gold to the north and the

English Channel shimmers silver to the south. Frankel put up a performance to match any with the Olympic tag and if he was perfect, so was one aspect of another performance that same day. Before racing, the gathering Goodwood crowd had watched on a big screen Helen Glover and Heather Stanning row to triumph at Eton Dorney. And soon afterwards Olympic Glory – named by his owner Julie Wood with just such a day and result in mind – swooped in the final strides to win the Vintage Stakes. Olympic Glory (Choisir), a £65,000 DBS Premier Sale purchase, resolutely defied his penalty for winning Newmarket’s Superlative Stakes to account for Artigiano, Luhaif, Tha’Ir and Ghurair in a tight finish and give the Hannon stable a third successive victory in the 7f Group 2. There were perfectly sound reasons in the formbook to pick the colt out as the winner. But the bookmakers will have paid out those who chose him after watching Glover and Stanning do just the same as the namesake.

Age has not withered them The older horses are holding their own against this season’s batch of Group 1 three-year-olds, writes Jocelyn de Moubray
Elusive Kate: became one of only three three-year-olds this year (to August 26) to beat the older horses in a Group 1 when successful in the Prix Rothschild
uly and August is the time of the season when the generations begin to race against each other, and this year’s Classic generation is struggling to make a mark against its elders. So far only three three-year-olds have succeeded in winning Group 1 races against older horses, two fillies and a colt. In Munich on July 29 the German Derby winner Pastorius came home 8l clear of Durban Thunder and Zazou in the 1m2f Group 1 Grosser Dallmayr-Preis, while at Deauville on the same day Elusive Kate made all the running to defeat Golden Lilac by one and a quarter lengths in the mile Group 1 Prix Rothschild. A week later on August 4, The Fugue defeated Timepiece to win the Group 1
Nassau Stakes at Goodwood. The other major Group 1s during the period were won by older horses – Excelebration, Giofra, Shareta, Snow Fairy, Temida, Moonlight Cloud and, in Frankel’s case, a wonder horse. Pastorius and Elusive Kate’s victories also allowed them to join Camelot, Dabirsim and Power as the only dual Group 1 winners from this generation, so far. Pastorius is from the first crop of Soldier Hollow, who is beginning to look as though he is becoming the next major German stallion. Soldier Hollow is a son of In The Wings, who was bred in England by Car Colston Stud. He ran 32 times over six seasons for trainer Peter Schiergen and owner Gestüt Park Wiedingen for a total of 12 wins, three in Group 1s and 12 places. He missed most
of his three-year-old career after catching some form of virus while racing in Italy, but, remarkably, was given an official rating higher than 110 for five consecutive seasons, with the highest of 119 as a seven-year-old. He did win three Group 1s, but his best performance probably came at Longchamp as a six-year-old when he beat Manduro to win the Prix Dollar on Arc weekend showing his customary impressive turn of foot. Solider Hollow comes from the family of Lisadel, Thong and, of course, Sadler’s Wells, but if you look at his pedigree on a catalogue page this is all hidden under the fourth dam. Soldier Hollow stood at Gestüt Röttgen until this season when he moved to Gestüt Auenquelle. His first crop of 50 three-yearolds includes Pastorius, currently the second
Monsun mares are going to be popular at the sales in the future, even if his yearlings have, for some strange reason, lost their international appeal
he has never covered large books and a fair number are already in Japan, but Monsun mares are going to be popular at the sales in the future, even if his yearlings have, for some strange reason, lost their international appeal. Elusive Kate is about the best filly of her generation in Europe, and the only one
highest-rated three-year-old colt in Europe, and at least six others who have official ratings of 95 or higher, including the Group performers Sworn Sold, Salon Soldier and Dessau, as well as Lady Of Budysin, Kassiano and several others who look likely to earn higher ratings in the future. Pastorius himself was a Group 3 winner at two, but is still improving and looks to be as good over 1m2f as he is over 1m4f. He is the second stakes horse produced by his dam, the Monsun mare Princess Li. Princess Li was a very ordinary racemare whose best performance came in a claimer in Milan, but then the other recent Group winners out of Monsun mares, Dom Bosco and Cherry Danon, are both out of unraced daughters of Gestüt Schlenderhan’s great sire. There are not that many Monsun mares,
who has proved to be top-class at both two and three. At two, the daughter of Elusive Quality won a Listed race, the Group 3 Prix du Calvados at Deauville and then the Group 1 Marcel Boussac. After a promising reappearance when second behind Giofra in Newmarket, she made all the running to defeat Golden Lilac in the Prix Rothschild.
Solider Hollow: his colt Pastorius is the second highest-rated three-year-old in Europe, and he has six other runners officially rated 95 or higher
Elusive Kate comes from the crop produced the year after her sire’s best son Raven’s Pass had won the Breeders’ Cup Classic and she is the best by Elusive Quality since
She may have been given an easy lead that day, but she confirmed her class two weeks later when running third, beaten less than 2l by Excelebration, in the Prix Jacques Le Marois. Elusive Kate comes from the crop produced the year after her sire’s best son Raven’s Pass had won the Breeders’ Cup Classic and she is the best by Elusive Quality since. She, too, will be a broodmare in Japan as Teruya Yoshida bought into her at the end of her two-year-old career. The Jacques Le Marois was the best mile race in Europe this year run without Frankel. All those who have tried and failed, or whose trainers don’t want to try to take on Frankel, lined up in Deauville. The first five came clear of the others and in a competitive finish there was only 2l between the field. Elusive Kate set a fast pace from the stalls and was only passed in the final 200 yards, first by Cityscape and then, under a strong ride, by Excelebration. Moonlight Cloud, who had won the Group 1 Prix Maurice de Gheest very easily a week earlier, came from far too far behind to finish fourth, just ahead of the three-year-old colt Caspar Netscher, who returned to his best after a poor run in the Jean Prat and who just appeared to run out of stamina after having the speed to get into a challenging position. Freddy Head, the trainer of Moonlight Cloud, was clearly expecting her to win and looked crestfallen for some hours after the race. The other older horse to win a Group 1 during the Deauville meeting was the extraordinary Snow Fairy, who returned from a long lay off as a five-year-old to beat Izzi Top, Galikova and Timepeice to win the Prix Jean Romanet. The race was run at a slow early pace and when the field turned into Deauville’s short straight, Snow Fairy looked to be too far behind to have a chance and to have too many others blocking her way. Neither proved to be an obstacle as the daughter of Intikhab quickened fast and more or less barged her way through to get past Izzi Top close home. Snow Fairy obviously likes winning, and she looks almost sure to add again to her six Group 1 wins to date. Another filly whose standing rose during the Deauville meeting, even though she wasn’t there herself, was Valyra, the Aga Khan’s Azamour filly who won the Prix de Diane in Chantilly. Leaupartie, Forces Of Darkness and
Dalkala, who finished around 8l behind at Chantilly, all won or placed in Group races and Valyra will start favourite for the Prix de Vermeille in September, even if the Irish Oaks winner Great Heavens is in the field as well. Perhaps the best of the staying fillies to run in Deauville was Prince Khalid Abdullah’s Romantica, a daughter of Galileo and Bank’s Hill, who looks to be improving fast and who will compete in Group 1 races after her comfortable victory in the 1m2f Group 2 Prix de la Nonnette. Another possible challenger for Valyra and Great Heavens is Salomina, the unbeaten winner of the German Oaks, which was run at the beginning of August. The daughter of Lomitas, trained by Schiergen, relished a fast-run race and good ground and quickened right away from her rivals for an easy three and a half length Classic success. Purchased by Australian interests, she is likely to try to emulate Danedream by competing in the best races outside Germany. If Snow Fairy impressed by her temperament and determination to win, the most impressive Group 1 winner of the Deauville meeting was Reckless Abandon, another champion bred by Car Colston Stud. The son of Exchange Rate maintained his unbeaten record in the 6f Prix Morny by going off so fast in front that the remainder of the field were off the bridle at halfway. The Clive Cox-trained colt got tired close home, he had been drawn on the outside and so had to use extra energy to get across quickly to the stands’ side rail, but the Aidan O’Brientrained pair of George Vancouver and Parliament Square never looked like catching
him, despite staying on to take second and third place. There were no French-trained two-yearolds in the first five home in the Morny or the Calvados, the best race for fillies at the meeting. That race was won by the Willie Muir-trained Purr Along, a filly from the first crop of Mount Nelson. The two French-trained two-year-olds who did make a mark were the American Post gelding Meneas, who won the valuable EBF Criterium over a mile, and What A Name, a daughter of Mr Greeley trained by Mikel Delzangles for Sheikh Mohammed Al Thani, who won a conditions race on her second start by 7l. Freddy Head: looked “crestfallen” after Moonlight Cloud’s defeat in the Jacques Le Marois

US yearling shopping John Sparkman reviews the Saratoga Selected Yearling Sale in which Sheikh Mohammed made his presence felt, albeit to a lesser degree than in 2011
The Sheikh Mohammed buying team consider its yearling options at Saratoga Photo: Fasig-Tipton / Z
heikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum dominates any thoroughbred auction that he chooses. It is a bit more difficult to dominate the racecourse side of the industry, of course, but the Sheikh is as game an owner as any man on the planet. Both aspects of the ruler of Dubai’s gargantuan operation were on display at Saratoga Springs, New York over the last couple of months. On July 28, the Sheikh’s homebred three-year-old colt Alpha led all the way on a sloppy, rain-soaked track to provide his sire, Sheikh Mohammed’s homebred champion Bernardini, with his second consecutive winner of the Jim Dandy Stakes (G2). Second in the Champagne Stakes (G1) last year and winner of the Withers Stakes (G2) last spring, Alpha is a second-generation Darley-bred. Sheikh Mohammed purchased his grand-dam Hiaam, by Alydar, a half-sister to Canadian champion Key To The Moon and American Grade 1 winners Seaside Attraction and Gorgeous, for $1.5 million at the 1985 Keeneland July Sale. Hiaam was a pretty good filly herself, winning the Princess Margaret Stakes (G2) and she produced three stakes winners for Sheikh Mohammed, including Alpha’s dam Munnaya (Nijinsky) who won the 1994 Champagne Ruinart Oaks Trial Stakes at Lingfield. Munnaya had already produced the closely related stakes winner Mystic Melody by Bernardini’s paternal grandsire Seattle Slew. Alpha will now try to duplicate Bernardini’s son Stay Thirsty’s Jim Dandy-Travers Stakes (G1) double later this month. Two weeks later, Sheikh Mohammed was at Saratoga in person, inspecting yearlings across Union Avenue from the racetrack at the Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Sale of Selected Yearlings. As usual, John Ferguson, the Sheikh’s principal agent, topped the buyers’ list, but the Sheikh did not dominate proceedings to anything like the same degree as he did in 2011. Ferguson signed for eight horses for $3,325,000, almost $10 million less than Ferguson and various other agents spent for the Sheikh or his close associates at the same sale last year. Sheikh Mohammed bought the toppriced colt, a handsome son of his not-sohandsome-but-very-effective stallion Street Cry, at $1.2 million at the first session, repeatedly instructing Ferguson to bid after
his majordomo appeared to be ready to concede the matter. Sheikh Mohammed left Saratoga after that first night, however, and the following evening, the sale improved dramatically in his absence. Trainer Todd Pletcher signed the ticket for the sale-topper, a $1.55 million daughter of Medaglia D’Oro, another Darley stallion, out of Pletcher-trained champion Wait A While, by Maria’s Mon. That electric second night of the sale brought total figures within a whisker of last year’s numbers, a substantial achievement in view of Sheikh Mohammed’s greatly reduced contribution to the bottom line. It will be interesting to see how many yearlings Sheikh Mohammed purchases throughout the rest of the year. The Sheikh’s rapacious hunger for racing prospects has been blindingly obvious for more than 30 years now, but with 100s of well-performed, beautifully bred mares on both sides of the Atlantic and perhaps half of the ten best stallions in the world residing at various Darley stud farms, how many yearlings does the man really need to buy? Coolmore has certainly become a bit more circumspect in their yearling purchases over the last five years and perhaps Sheikh Mohammed may follow the same pattern, particualrly now that some of his stallions are hitting the top slots. Saratoga is always the place where some of the year’s best two-year-olds begin to make themselves known, and for the second straight year a son of the unheralded sire High Cotton (a second-rate son of Dixie Union) sizzled at the Spa. Last year High Cotton’s Currency Swap dominated the Three Chimneys Hopeful Stakes (G1). This season, Spurious Precision burned off his rivals in the Saratoga Special (G2) with furious fractions of 21.35sec for the first quarter and 44.02sec for the half mile before drawing off to win by 5l. Spurious Precision (out of Scarlet Combo, by Scarlet Ibis) is unlikely to find it quite so easy to outrun Grade 1 colts over longer distances, but he surely has plenty of sheer speed, as does Kauai Katie (Malibu Moon) the winner of the equivalent fillies’ race, the Adirondack Stakes (G2). A $490,000 FasigTipton Florida Two-Year-Old Sale purchase for Stonestreet Stables, Kauai Katie ran almost as fast and has rather more pedigree depth since her dam More Than Pretty is a stakes winner by More Than Ready. It is not often in the US that a horse wins a

graded race on his debut, but that is exactly what happened when J. Paul Reddam’s Know More (Lion Heart), made his first start in the Best Pal Stakes (G2) at Del Mar. A $210,000 Barretts May purchase by trainer Doug O’Neill’s brother Dennis (the same man who picked out I’ll Have Another for Reddam), Know More is from the good family that includes the good European horses Emperor Jones, Bakharoff, and Que Belle. (See feature on J Paul Reddam, page 62.) The day after the Jim Dandy, Zayat Stable’s imposing Awesome Again colt Paynter completely dominated a much better field in the Haskell Invitational Stakes (G1), powering away in the stretch for a three and three-quarter length win. The brilliance of that performance by the son of a sister to champion Tiznow confirmed his place at the top of the rankings of the three-year-olds that
remain in training, alongside his stablemate Bodemeister. Paynter will miss the Travers, however, after developing a fever after the Haskell, just as Lookin At Lucky (also trained by Bob Baffert) did two years ago.
erhaps the most gratifying victory of the month so far, though, came at the same track a week later when the three-year-old filly Wine Princess won the Monmouth Oaks (G3). By Awesome Again’s best son Ghostzapper, Wine Princess is the third foal (2009) of 2002 Horse of the Year Azeri (Jade Hunter). It was Wine Princess’s third win in five starts, and she may not have beaten much at Monmouth. She was bought by owners Jimmy and Becky Winemiller for $425,000 at the Keeneland September Sale in 2010. Azeri’s first foal, Take Control (A.P. Indy) is
also a talented racehorse, but he has not been a lucky one. His first public appearance was at the 2008 Keeneland September Yearling Sale where the colt, who was bred in Kentucky by The Allen E. Paulson Living Trust, was consigned by Hill ‘n Dale Sales Agency. He got off to a notable start, but not a successful one – he was bought back for a record buy-back price of $7.7 million. Things got better as he went on to win his first start on December 30, 2009 and was then thought to be Bob Baffert’s 2010 second string behind Lookin At Lucky. The dreams ended then as he did not see a racecourse again until June 30 this year, 18 months later. But he won impressively again, and Baffert really had no option other than to run him next time out in a stakes race. Considering his stop-start history, Take Control ran a terrific race in the San Diego Handicap (G2) rallying furiously from last place down the outside to finish fourth behind proven class horses Rail Trip, John Scott and Kettle Corn, beaten only a length. He is now owned by Kaleem Shah. Azeri, who was not only Horse of the Year but was also champion older female three years consecutively from 2002-04 was purchased by Katsumi Yoshida for $2.25 million at the 2009 Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale and exported to Japan. She might turn out to be just as good a broodmare as she was a racemare.

There’s nothin’ like a
Alan Porter reviews Danedream’s pedigree and finds she is not the first from her family to have bossed the colts at the highest level
lthough Danedream is far from invincible – she has won only seven of her 16 lifetime starts – she certainly knows how to get the job done when it matters. That fact is more than underlined by her quartet of Group 1 victories: the Grosser-Preis Von Berlin, the Grosser-Preis Von Baden, the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe and, in July, the King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes. All four of those victories were achieved over a 1m4f against colts, and when delving into her background one has to wonder whether such a tradition isn’t
embedded in her DNA. Danedream comes from a family that owes its standing to some of the greatest French breeders, and a convenient starting point from which to discuss this female line is 1914 with a young Marcel Boussac’s acquisition of an interest in eight mares, all owned by the Comte de Catelbajac. Among this group was Diana Vernon, a three-parts sister to the top-class colt Ossian. The descendents of Diana Vernon would continue to produce high-class runners for Boussac more than half a century, and they included one of Boussac’s last top-class
performers, Dankaro, winner of the Prix Lupin (G1) and rated the top French three-year-old colt of 1974. As far as Danedream is concerned, the branch of Diana Vernon’s pedigree which is of interest is that which descends from her grand-daughter Sanaa, a sister to Hira, the dam of the French 2,000 Guineas winner Hurnli. Sanaa’s best runner was Esmeralda, a Tourbillon filly who defeated colts in the Prix Morny, but who earned greater fame as dam of one of the greatest of all the Boussac colour-bearers, Coronation V.
Danedream (orange): beating the colts in Group 1 races is something of a family trait on the female side of the filly’s pedigree
Boussac was an advocate of close inbreeding, and Coronation V exemplified that technique to an extreme degree – she was by Djebel, a son of Esmeralda’s sire, Tourbillon (thus inbred 2 x 2 to Tourbillon). Coronation V won the Queen Mary Stakes at Royal Ascot and Prix Robert-Papin as a two-year-old and then gained a Classic victory in the Poule d’Essai des Pouliches at three, but her claim to greatness comes due to her triumph in the the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, a race that Danedream won last season, 62 years later. The branch of the Diana Vernon family
that leads to Danedream, descends not through Esmeralda and Coronation V, but through Esmeralda’s half-sister Geranium, a daughter of the Derby winner Mahmoud, who somewhat ironically lacked the usual Boussac stamp of inbreeding being a complete outcross at four generations. Geranium didn’t produce anything near as exciting as Coronation V, although two of her offspring won stakes races and her Pharis filly Monrovia won the Prix de Royallieu, Prix de Royaumont and Prix de Saint-Firmin and finished second in the Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot. The family’s drift away from
production at the highest level continued with Monrovia as her best was Wage War, an Aggressor II colt. He was some way removed from top-class, although he did win the Churchill Stakes and Commonwealth Stakes. As so often happens, it took a move to another stud for this branch of the female line to revive. In this case, it was the Haras de Meautry belonging to the Rothschild family and through Moss Rose. She was by Mossborough out of Monrovia’s stakes-placed daughter Damasi, a daughter of Djebel and so by both the same sire and from the family of Coronation V.
ood as she was on the racecourse, Lady Berry turned out to be even better as a broodmare. Four of her offspring earned stakes winner status headed by Vert Amande, whose trio of Group race triumphs included the Prix Ganay (G1); Le Nain Jaune, a son of Pharly, who took the Grand Prix de Paris (G1) and the Prix Vermeille (G1) heroine Indian Rose, who was the best runner sired by the very disappointing stallion General Holme. Lady Berry’s best-producing daughter, however, turned out to be one who got away. The Lyphard daughter Featherhill, who was a winner in France and stakes-placed in the US, began her stud career for the Warner family producing the Prix Lupin (G1) victor and successful sire Groom Dancer; Tagel, a winner of the Prix Saint-Roman (G3) and third in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1) as well as Slew The Slewor, a stakes winner in France and the US and Group and Graded placed in both countries. Offered at the 1989 Keeneland November Sales, Featherhill was purchased by another of France’s great breeding dynasties, the Wertheimer family (as Hagyard Farm) for $1,300,000 at 1989 Keeneland November. Featherhill never produced another stakes winner, but two of her daughters, Featherquest and Sea Hill, made an outstanding contribution to the Wertheimer programme. Featherquest is dam of Plumania, who proved a worthy heir to the tradition of Coronation V and Lady Berry as she beat Youmzain in the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud. Featherquest’s 1993 foal Sea Hill (Seattle Slew) is dam of Legerete, a two-time Group winner and multiple Group 1-placed, and grand-dam of the French Poule d’Essai des Poulains (G1) winner Falco, and the Group winner Iron Lips.
Lomitas has something of an affinity for Danehill line mares... ...and has a 50 per cent stakes horses to starters record
Bred to the otherwise disappointing sire Violon d’Ingres – a half-brother to the successful stallion Luthier – Moss Rose produced Lady Berry, whose pedigree carried the parallels to Coronation V further by a step as she was inbred 3 x 4 to Tourbillon. Winner of the Prix de Pomone (G3) against her own sex, Lady Berry was another to emulate Coronation V by defeating colts in a major race over a distance of ground when she accounted for the high-class colts Authi, Balompie and Recupere in the Prix Royal-Oak (G1).
Another of Featherhill’s daughters, Keltshaan, made her way to Australia and she appears as dam of Kinshasa No Kiseki, the champion sprinter and champion miler in Japan, and grand-dam of Absolutely, who had the distinction of breaking her maiden in the AJC Australian Oaks (G1). Another mare from this family culled from the Haras de Meautry broodmare band was Rose Bonbon, a black-type-placed daughter of High Top and Lady Berry. She was sold to a partnership of Tommy Stack, Sue Magnier and Swettenham Stud for 85,000gns at the 1994 Tattersalls December Sales. Rose Bonbon failed to produce a runner of note from ten foals to race, but does now figure as grand-dam of the Prix de Yacowlef winner Roseanna, and the Italian black-type scorers Saratoga Black, a Group winner who was also third in the Gran Premio di Milano (G1) and Derby Italiano (G2). Danedrop, Rose Bonbon’s 1999 filly by Danehill, did not make it to the racetrack and was bred to first-year sire King Charlemagne and sold to Herbertstown Stud for €21,000 at the 2002 Goffs November Sales. The following year, Danedrop was offered in foal to Val Royal at the Tattersalls November Sales, but was bought back in for 40,000gns. The King Charlemagne filly was not named, but the Val Royal mating resulted in a colt called Valdan, who fetched €20,000 as a Goffs November weanling and won five of 78 races. The following year the mare produced Accused, a son of Xaar. He was a success in the sale ring realising €75,000 as a weanling, and €360,000 at the Goffs Million Yearling Sale. Unfortunately, he was a disappointment as a runner managing one third from five
outings. Returned to the ring at Goffs November 2005, Danedrop was knocked down to the BBA Germany, who was acting on behalf of Gestüt Brummerhof for €47,000. For them she produced Danestorm, a Soviet Star colt who never ran, Danestar, a son of Medicean who was exported to Hungary where he won twice, and then Danedream, who fetched only €9,000 at Baden-Baden as a two-year-old. Danedrop then changed ownership once more. Consigned to the 2007 Arqana Sale and sold in-foal to Soldier Hollow, Danedrop – whose record at the time showed just one winner from her first four foals – realised €17,000 to a bid of Tony Clout, who was familiar with the family having trained Groom Dancer. He was acting on behalf of heart specialist Askam Khaddam, a native of Martinique. If it came down to finding the right mating to revive the fortunes of Danedrop and her branch of the famous family, Danedream’s sire Lomitas was a good choice. A champion three-year-old colt, a champion older horse and a Horse of the Year in Germany, Lomitas has sired more than 50 stakes winners, including the other Group 1 winners Belenus, Meridiana and Shalanya. Although it wasn’t evident at the time, it’s clear that Lomitas has something of an affinity for Danehill line mares. Although there have been only ten starters by Lomitas out of mares by Danehill and his sons, eight of them are winners, with Danedream and Salomina winning at Group 1 level, and three others, including the Group 1-placed Rose Di Brema, earning lower case black-type. Lomitas has a 50 per cent stakes horses to starters record with his offspring out of mares by Danehill. The affinity also extends to Lomitas’s son Silvano, who also has a stakes winner out of a Danehill mare, while Hernando, like Lomitas is a son of Niniski, has Group winner Indian Daffodil from a daughter of Danehill. Maybe the key might be the fact that both Niniski and Danehill are by sons of Northern Dancer out of mare by sons of Ribot? More evidence for that assertion comes from the fact that there are eight stakes winners by Danehill line stallions out of mares carrying Niniski, four of them Group or Graded.

Live fast, die young...
...leave a beautiful last crop of foals. Victor Sheahan examines if there is a “death effect” on a stallion’s yearling prices
rt collectors have been known to pop open the champagne corks on hearing of the death of an artist. The reason is not extreme misanthropy, but rather the likely increase in the value of their collections. Values for art, bloodstock or any other commodity are supposedly set at the interface of supply and demand. Death sees an end to supply, so economic theory would predict an increase in values. With this in mind I thought it would be interesting to see whether stallion mortality offers opportunity for profit within the bloodstock world. Do buyers pay a premium for stock of the recently deceased and is there a “death effect” that could be exploited by pinhookers or agents?
The legendary Coolmore stallion Sadler’s Wells: there was no discernable “grim reaper” effect at the yearling sales after his death
In attempting to quantify if there is an upsurge in values, I needed to compare the prices in the years after death with prices just prior to death. To do this I looked at their final five year’s yearling prices and expressed each year’s sales average as a percentage of that five-year average. For example, if a stallion’s sales average was €10,000 in 2011, €15,000 in 2010, €8,000 in 2009, €15,000 in 2008 and €12,000 in 2007, then the average for the five-year period is €12,000 and the 2011 result is 83 per cent of the five-year average (€10,000/€12,000) with the 2010 result being 125 per cent of the five-year average (€15,000/€12,000). By expressing the results in this way we are able to compare the effect for stallions, despite the sires standing at very different stud fees. In selecting the stallions I looked at the list of leading sires from 2002 and selected those stallions who are now deceased and with no more yearlings to sell. Stallions with very small sales numbers were excluded, as were stallions that were exported or standing outside of the UK and Ireland The stallions died at various years from the late-1990s up to the beginning of this decade and varied in age and stud fee when they died. I also noted the year of birth of the stallion and the year in which his last crop were sold. This allowed for an assessment of whether the age of the stallion at the time of death had an impact on the result. Some caveats in relation to my findings include the fact that working from the leading sires’ list excluded less established or sires who had died very young, while my five-year average figure was not a weighted average figure. The data-set generated is in the table opposite.
the stats man At first sight, the average results do not support the hypothesis that there is a “death effect”. The average final year’s sales results are only 95 per cent of the five-year average, the same figure as the penultimate year’s results. However, this is an increase on the 87 per cent figure for the third-last crop sold, so you could argue that a slight bounce is evident. The average age of the sires when the last crop was conceived was 17.8 years. To check if this was significant we compared the results for those sires who were aged under or over 18 at the time their last crop was conceived against the overall averages. Although there were variations, they were not significant, so the age at death does not seem material to the findings. I found this to be surprising as it is well-known that the quality of a stallion’s book declines with age (even though a stallion’s ability to pass on his ability is not diminished with age).

The last offspring of an old master has to compete with trendy first-season sires for marketplace attention
However lesser mares will mean lesser offspring and accordingly lesser prices and I would have expected this age related effect to be more noticeable in the statistics.
I could discern no obvious “grim reaper premium”, but given that there was a slight bounce in the final two year’s figures, it is possible that there was a marginal effect. Against that one could speculate that once a stallion dies, he is less likely to receive support from his owners, who may have purchased stock to boost sales figures.

Summary of findings
Similarly, stud owners are less likely to spend money advertising the successes of the deceased than the living, so this again may have a slight negative impact on prices. It is not speculation to state that bloodstock is not art and horses don’t appreciate in value with age. However, bloodstock values are a matter of fashion and the last offspring of an old master has to compete with trendy first-season sires for marketplace attention. I had expected an obituary notice to help in that regard, but it seems that death cannot be described as a good career move for a stallion.

Lissa Oliver travels to Bansha House Stables in County Tipperary to meet David Marnane, who trained his first Royal Ascot winner this summer
that experience. It was great in two senses – we met nice people and good owners who didn’t mind taking a chance on a small stable, Malih Al Basti, for example. “We also got to see the very best trainers from Europe, the US, Australia and South Africa. You were able to watch them in action and see the different methods and take the parts you liked and bring them back with you. The two biggest things about Dubai were the people we met and the different levels of expertise – Kieran McLaughlin, Doug Watson, John Sadler and Mike De Kock, they are all phenomenal horsemen.”
From our time in Dubai we kept all our contacts. We have been very lucky to have had that chance and been given that experience
orses run for David Marnane. Whether it has been as a jockey or now as a trainer, Marnane has that precious horseman’s gift. All good trainers are hands-on and he’s no exception, perfectly at home in the yard, observing, listening to what the staff have to say and allowing himself plenty of quality time with each horse. He’s good with people too, and easy to talk to with an intense enthusiasm through which his passion for horses surges in every word, yet he never loses his calm exterior. Marnane is more laidback than quiet and it’s hard to imagine anyone, least of all the horses, losing their cool at the tranquil Bansha House Stables, found in the heart of rural County Tipperary. Little wonder his horses remain mentally fit for long and prolific careers, improving with each passing season. And it’s no surprise at all that “second-hand” horses thrive and improve when they arrive; it’s an environment designed to relax a fizzy brain and pent-up nerves. Marnane’s success as a trainer, starting out with just six horses back in 2006, will have come as no surprise to those that knew him as a jockey. One of the best amateur riders in a star-studded era he rode for the likes of Mick O’Toole, Noel Meade and Dermot Weld and won such races, among others, as the GPT Handicap at Galway and the Champion Bumper at the Punchestown Festival. In 1994 he finished behind only Willie Mullins for the champion amateurs’ title. Just three years later, he and wife Mel jumped at the opportunity to go and work in Dubai, first with champion trainer Kieran McLaughlin, and then for Doug Watson. It proved to be the most valuable eight years of their lives. “From our time in Dubai we kept all our contacts,” Marnane says. “We have been very lucky to have had that chance and been given
Another significant point Marnane makes is also owed to his time in Dubai. “One of the things we noticed immediately when we arrived in Dubai was that so many of the horses were very big, carrying loads of condition,” he explains. “We’re so used to seeing lighter horses here at home, it showed us that they could carry a bit more condition and still do well, and they seem to thrive on it.” Certainly, none of the horses at Bansha House ever run-up light or could be called
The quiet man is making a noise
Horses galloping at Bansha
david marnane Marnane has a sand and fibre gallop, which he feels helps keep the horses both sound and happy
“lean types” and their success speaks for itself. “All our work here is sharp and they get stronger and put on muscle,” says Marnane. “We’ve a six and a half furlong sand and fibre gallop, slightly uphill. It’s raked after every lot. Horses keep very sound on it. We’re not very hard on them at home and we let them find their feet themselves. “We don’t put any pressure on them and they always improve for their race. That’s probably why our horses always manage to just stay ahead of the handicapper and stay consistent all year. We get a lot of second-hand horses in to us and they all go forward for us. We’re very easy on them and they all seem to love it.” That much is obvious as soon as you walk into the yard. If you owned a horse, it would not take you long to reach the decision to send it to Marnane to train, such is the air of expertise about the people and the relaxed attitude of the horses. “I couldn’t imagine training on The Curragh or at Newmarket, it would do my head in!” laughs Marnane, tellingly. “Horses who maybe haven’t been thriving do really well when they move here; it’s so quiet and peaceful. I try to keep them happy and keep them confident. We never let them get tired. It prevents injuries and they stay sound and keep going season after season. Dandy Boy is probably typical of our horses, he’s always the last horse to come off the bridle.” He’s also one of those who helped to put Marnane on the map. A 20,000gns purchase, he won the 2010 Victoria Cup at Ascot before going on that winter to break the 7f course record at Meydan.Unfortunately, injury then struck and after getting knocked into next time out at Meydan he suffered a suspensory ligament injury, which put him out until October 2011. Typically, as one trained by Marnane, the son of Danetime bounced back and this year landed the Wokingham Stakes at Royal Ascot. It could have been a double at the meeting as Jamesie was narrowly denied in the Buckingham Palace Stakes. A mere £11,000 purchase, the Kodiac gelding finished second and took his earnings to over €60,000. He went on then to finish sixth in both the Bunbury Cup and then the Stewards’ Cup. Jamesie and Seanie, a three-year-old by Kodiac, are both owned by Damien Lavelle, one of Marnane’s handful of Irish owners. Seanie cost just £31,000 at the Doncaster Breeze-Up, and won the Tattersalls Ireland
Marnane puts his success down to the “gelling” of staff and people.
t was Santo Padre who provided Marnane with his first win in England when landing the highly competitive Portland Handicap at Doncaster in 2009 and Marnane acknowledges the importance of high profile wins. “The biggest advertising is the winners, in the UK and on Saturdays. The UK races are so hard to win, very hard. You can win as many as you like during the week, but you can’t beat wins on Saturday or at Ascot or Meydan,” he adds. “We don’t do PR work, maybe that’s where we fall down, but we’ve been very lucky, we have a line of prolific winners.”
We have a few Irish owners, but mainly foreign owners from Russia, Dubai, Qatar, Iran, UK and Australia; we have so many overseas owners and global runners
As well as some very loyal and supportive Irish-based owners, Marnane runs a very cosmopolitan yard, which owes a great deal to his Dubai connections. “We really run a global operation here. We have some very good owners, very loyal men such as Malih Al Basti. He’s very patient and never puts us under pressure. We have a few Irish owners, but mainly foreign owners from Russia, Dubai, Qatar, Iran, UK and Australia; we have so many overseas owners and global runners. “Emma Bifova from Russia owns Nocturnal Affair, while we have a good few owners who are based in Dubai, due to the contacts we made out there. We do a lot to keep them all up to date with their horses with photos and progress reports. Modern technology makes it very easy.
sales race on only his second run. As well as having an eye for buying winners, Marnane obviously definitely has a keen eye for bargains. “We bought Maal for 2,500gns out of the Marcus Tregoning stable and he’s now won eight races for my wife,” he points out. Another of Marnane’s flagship performers is Santo Padre. “He had troubles as a foal and we didn’t get him until he was four. He won his maiden on his second start and very nearly broke the track record at Dundalk. He’s bred and owned by Tom and Cathy Burns at nearby Victor Stud,” he smiles.
“We like to take photos of all the horses every month, even just for ourselves so that we can see the development of horses. Sometimes when you’re in the yard seeing the horses every day, you don’t see the turnaround in them.” One of Marnane’s most prominent owners is Sheikh Mohammed, who sent him two yearlings for the first time in 2010. It was a move which resulted in success straight away when Fred Archer won a 7f maiden at Leopardstown in the famous silks. Sheikh Mohammed has since increased the number of yearlings he sent to Bansha House. “People think I’m a big trainer, that we’re a big stable, but we’re not. We’ve only got 45 horses, but we’ve got a lot of decent ones,” Marnane points out. “We’ve only been at it six years so to have had the success we’ve had,
Some people say that horses who run in Dubai don’t do so well afterwards, but that’s total nonsense! All our horses come back and improve pounds and pounds
well, we’ve been very lucky. “We grew from having just six horses to 45, and we did that during a recession. When we came back from Dubai, many other trainers had 100 plus horses, but many of those owners dropped out of the game. Starting out small we’ve always had a core of proper owners who didn’t disappear when things went bad, so I suppose that helped a lot.” Another common misconception is also corrected. “People think we specialise in sprinters, but it’s just one of those things that our good ones have been sprinters, that’s the type of horse we’ve been getting from the breeze-up sales,” he says. “You can only train what you get. We lack good middle-distance horses and we need more. It’s definitely my ambition to get a good middle-distance horse and we’ll be making a more conscious effort to get that type.” One thing Marnane does specialise in is harvesting the rich pickings of the Dubai Carnival and having spent eight years working there he knows exactly what’s required. “Certainly we learnt how to travel horses better and how to run them off the plane. It makes such a difference to a horse’s wellbeing to go from here in our mid-winter to there,” he says. “The Dubai Carnival really has made an impact. Some people say that horses who run in Dubai don’t do so well afterwards, but that’s total nonsense! All our horses come back and improve pounds and pounds. “The biggest key to running a horse in Dubai is that they get a chance to run straight off the plane. I think it helps that they just arrive and run without having to adjust. After that I try to give them three weeks to
Marnane’s time in Dubai gave him an understanding as to the best way to campaign at the Carnival
acclimatise and settle in before running them again. The best of our horses will always go. I’d send them all, if I could.” Typically, Nocturnal Affair ran five times at this year’s Carnival, winning one race and finishing in the money twice. “He won over €200,000 in prize-money and yet he was still unlucky in his races,” Marnane says. “The Dubai prize-money keeps these horses for the season or more. At that level, the horses can earn their keep and are paying for their owner’s trip to Dubai, but the Carnival isn’t only about the money. To get better, horses have to compete with the
best. If you surround yourself with intelligent people you will improve and I don’t think horses are any different.” Marnane feels it’s now even easier to find opportunities for horses and that owners have a chance to regain at least some of their outlay, if not all. “In Ireland we’ve now got a 12-month Flat season – Dundalk provides an outlet for backend two-year-olds, while there’s the Dubai Carnival for the better horses. Last year we had ten runners in Dubai and six came back with prize-money. We have a system we feel works in Dubai, we know the type of
ll of which takes considerable planning and races can be targeted up to a year in advance. In this, Marnane is helped by his brother Ed, who is particularly good at mapping out a campaign. “If the ground is fine, entries aren’t a bother, but if the ground is bad, as it is has been this season, then it’s a real headache. “You’re not sure if a race is going to be right for them,” he says, adding: “It’s important to place them properly and not over face them. All of ours will improve for their race, but they need to be given the chance to. I don’t like to run them back-to-back, I like to give them a bit of time between races. Our horses get tough and hardy. “We let the horses find their own feet and then we’ll see a race that’s suitable for them and aim for that,” he continues. “It’s a matter of where you think they’re going to get to and when. Horses get quicker as they get older, they’re not over fazed with runs. We train towards particular days, so they improve throughout the season. There’s no point having them ready in March for races of little value run on bottomless ground.” One of the marks of a typical Bansha House runner is its willingness and heart. “All the best athletes and footballers are cocky – horses are the same,” says Marnane. “I’d rather have a slower horse who’s confident than a quick one with no heart. “Their first run is like a child’s first day

horse needed for Dubai, how to travel them there and how to get them to that level.” Getting a horse to that necessary level for international competition can often lead to a difference of opinion with the handicapper, but Marnane has never found that a difficulty. “Harry Trotter, a 9,000gns purchase, went up 12lb from his win at The Curragh on Guineas Weekend,” he explains. “Handicappers in Ireland are very fair, and when one goes up a lot they’re usually right. I like to chat with them and see what they think of the horses, but it’s good to have another opinion.” The horses don’t have to jet off as far as Dubai to earn their keep. “Travelling to the UK is very easy. We usually only go for a Listed or £70,000£100,000 handicap; there’s no point sending a horse over for a £1,300 handicap. We love to have a winner at Chester, if we can. The ground isn’t usually in our favour, most of ours hate soft ground, but it does them no harm at all.”
at school. We take care of them, they aren’t knocked around, there’s always another day. Certain horses are fast, but that doesn’t make them a good racehorse. A good horse can sustain its gallop for longer, real good ones can quicken for two, two and a half furlongs, they just grind, grind, grind.” The key to their longevity on the track lies at the heart of this. The facilities at Bansha are excellent, but so are those at many another top yards. What separates Marnane from those around him is the added attention to detail and the focus on mental fitness as well as physical well-being. “The biggest thing here in the yard is how relaxed it is. And when a horse improves here they improve a lot, don’t ask me why!” he smiles. “We’re very strict on routine. Horses thrive on routine. They don’t get nervous when they know what they’re doing. I won’t have any roaring or shouting in the yard, the horses don’t get stressed and I never get stressed. This year has been very frustrating, we have some very nice horses, but they’re top of the ground horses.” He shrugs. Like his horses, he’s unfazed. “The facilities we have here are important,” he continues. “The big thing here is air. The boxes in the open and airy american barns are well ventilated and also have large windows opening from the back, all of which are left permanently open. If it’s stuffy, horses get sick; if it’s cold, we’ll just put on an extra rug!” Naturally, there’s plenty laid on for the horses outside too. “We have lovely big walkers, which change direction, and have loads of room so horses have a chance to buck and kick and mess. We’ve a big arena and a pool, although we don’t use that very much. “We’ve a treadmill, too, which again wouldn’t really be used that much. And the
sand and fibre gallop, which keeps them fresh and sound.” Marnane is ably assisted in all this by a good team, which he has built up over the past six years. “The staff consists of maintenance crew, ground staff, lads working in the yard and work riders. James Casey is a great headman and my wife Melanie plays as big a role as I do. She is great with the feeds, leg problems, she takes many things away from me. Ed is great at mapping out races., we could be planning races a year in advance.” All of which sounds like the perfect setup, but like all trainers Marnane must still struggle to raise his profile and attract new owners. “Until very recently, everyone knew of Con but not me,” he says. “I’d been gone for ten years and from coming back home to Ireland it’s all happened very quick. I suppose I’m naturally very quiet; I prefer to get back home after the races and not hang around in the bar, so we don’t meet as many people as we should. “I’d love to get more horses, we certainly need more two-year-olds. My one wish is to get more people in to see this place. I’d love to have all 60 boxes full, but there are a lot of trainers who are dropping in numbers, while we’re holding our level. “We have some very good clients and our success has been down to them and to a great team. Everything gels well, it seems to work and we’re all pulling in the same direction.” In the quest for new horses it might be suggested that the close proximity of brother Con, a leading consignor and pin-hooker, could be an advantage and Marnane agrees. “We’re completely separate to Con at Bansha House Stud, we barely see him. But there are advantages, for instance if Con sees one at the sales he thinks I might like he gives me a shout; we do tend to pick out the same type of horse. “When I’m looking for a horse I like a good walker and a good attitude. I’m a big fan of Kodiak. His horses are always hardy and genuine, it suits us. We also seem to have a lot of success with sons of Danehill.” Which leaves only one final question to be asked. “What makes us a success?” muses Marnane. “The gelling of people.” It has been said that if you get the people around them right, the horses will be right. The Bansha House Stables can be held up in testimony – David Marnane has certainly got it right.

Although they are producing a horse to race, they are also, by extension, need to produce the type of prospective racehorse many buyers are looking for at the sales, although the farm’s successful breeding of a Derby winner hasn’t necessarily worked to its advantage. “Oath’s success in The Derby certainly made a difference to our broodmares; they suddenly became a half-sister to a Derby winner,” Morris points out. “At the sales, though, most trainers then assume we’re breeding a middle-distance type, but in actual fact what we’re trying to breed is a miler. “At the yearling sales buyers are looking for two-year-olds and an instant return. You can’t suddenly put speed into a family, it takes time,” adds Alexander. There are other discrepancies to be faced when planning matings that hope to achieve both Morris’s aims as well as attract potential buyers – one being stallion fashion. “Medicean gets lots of winners, but oddly enough he’s not that popular commercially at the sales,” ponders Morris, though, undeterred, he continues to use the stallion and, as the Group 2 winner Manieree has proved, his faith has been rewarded. Let’s hope the Medicean filly, out of Danamight due to be offered by Iverk in this year’s Orby Sale, is half as good. When it comes to choosing of stallions, Morris and Alexander put in a lot of time and thought. “Luckily, most of our mares have won, but

Our budget excludes us from sending any mares to the expensive sires, but there are plenty of very good sires out there for €25,000 or under
Morris and Alexander spend a lot of time deciding on just which stallion to use with which mare
everyone’s looking for early returns as well as Group and Listed winners, so you put them to the best stallions you can. You have to be very selective and we try to use proven sires within our budget,” Morris explains. “I think it’s very fair to say that this is the time to do this now. There are a lot of very good sires in Ireland and it’s not as expensive as sending a mare over to Britain. Our budget excludes us from sending any mares to the expensive sires, but there are plenty of very good sires out there for €25,000 or under. “We also try to use modern technology where we can. We have used Patrick Brain’s pedigree nicks software that goes back 12 generations instead of the usual six and it’s one that many agents refer to. We will also consult with Bill Oppenheim and Tony Morris. “Matings are planned a long time in advance, we will be sitting down making choices throughout the year,” Morris continues. “One of the biggest problems is in the spring when a stallion dies or is found to have fertility problems causing a mare to end up with a late covering. It happened to us a couple of times recently and as a consequence we missed a year with one of them, but it’s the same for all breeders. Looking for stallions gets easier as you start to know how your mare throws.” The more one sits and talks with Morris and Alexander, the more you find out how snugly commercialism and ownership sit with them. Not only is the objective at Iverk House to breed broodmares, but Morris likes to invest in stallions and uses them accordingly. “If and when I’m approached I like to buy shares in stallions, if the pedigree suits the mares I have. I have half a share in Lope De Vega and he’s an interesting match with Sheer Audacity’s family as it gives Troy on both sides of the pedigree, which would be very rare these days,” he says. “I also have shares in Acclamation and Lilbourne Lad. “I use stallions I’ve shares in as much as possible, it makes financial sense, as well as helping to promote the stallion. The cost isn’t so onerous and there’s a
chance of making a profit.” When he puzzles over the difference between owner-breeders and commercial breeders, the figures do little to help an argument. “A decent percentage of our horses win and I once worked out that if we’d kept them all, instead of selling them, we would have made more money!” he laughs mentioning Bullish Luck, who was the winner of five Group 1s and 12 races, and retired with earnings of £3,715,810.
verk House has a small but select draft entered for the Goffs Orby Sale and preparation began in earnest at the beginning of the summer. The yearlings are all for sale with realistic valuations determined by the cost of production and buyers should not be put off by any excessive reserves. But, in the end, it comes down to that luck of the draw during the tense minute or so in the sales ring after three years of planning and hard work. Nevertheless, the Iverk breeding operation continues with great enthusiasm. “We have six mares,” says Morris, “and we could do with three or four more, but I’d prefer them to be my own. “I want to see the farm paying first, there’s no point being in this business if it doesn’t pay. To buy a broodmare you need a lot of money! “A mare must have a very good back family, that’s the most important thing, it’s essential. They should stand over plenty of ground and have a good big eye and have a good outlook. If we can, we try and retain as many of the fillies as we can afford to. “It all depends on the numbers you have and the bank balance. You have to make it pay, but at the same time you sometimes have to keep a filly in order to keep and make a family.” There is also the matter of expansion, no easy thing to rush into. It requires more staff, more land and, yet, the numbers game often pays. Iverk House may have come from small

To judge whether or not to have a mare on your farm, you should be quite happy to have a filly out of her
beginnings, but the ambitions are large and the start was no humble one, either. “Sheer Audacity was the first mare we purchased,” explains Morris. “She was by Troy out of an Alcide mare and we bought her at the 1989 December Sale. “When my late wife Isabel and I were newly married we bought Iverk House and we decided to buy some mares. We had some marked in the catalogue and Sheer Audacity happened to be the first one and we managed to get her. She was carrying Pelder at the time. “We sold him as a foal for 7,000gns and he really gave us the quick start by winning the Italian Guineas and the Prix Ganay. We then bought a couple of other mares and had three mares here as well as a couple of mares in the States, when that sort of venture was commercially feasible. “We bought Nuit Chaud, by Woodman, at Keeneland; she’s a grand-daughter of Lianga out of a sister to the dam of Danehill Dancer. “To judge whether or not to have a mare on your farm, you should be quite happy to have a filly out of her. Actually, I’d nearly prefer to have a filly foal out of my mares: if you don’t sell her as a foal or yearling, you can put her in training and have her back as a broodmare or sell her out of training as a two or three-year-old.” Isabel’s family were established breeders, and Morris admits he knew nothing about the business at all to start with. “She taught me an awful lot. She was still teaching me, right up to her death in 2002,” he reminisces. “Her idea was always to be a commercial breeder and I’ve still not discovered the difference! She would have sold everything if she could.” Over 50 per cent of the horses bred at Iverk House have been Listed or Group winners. “Some of the families have fallen a bit asleep, but they do come back,” Alexander says. “Mrs Christina Patino’s successes with Elusive Pimpernel and Snow Fairy, alongside Manieree’s two Group wins, have woken up
Sheer Audacity’s family. “Sheer Spirit had been knocking on the door with useful colts – River Bravo, Solid Rock and Bold Choice – and Manieree is her first filly; we had to keep her or lose the line. “Sheer Bliss (Sadler’s Wells) only had colts, too. She had her first filly, by Iffraaj, in the same year that Manieree was foaled so we had to sell her. Luckily, she was bought by Jeremy Harley and is in training with Kevin Prendergast so is in the right hands. She is called When Not Iff and was rated 100 at the end of last season, but needs top of the ground and has only been out once this year. You have to have the right breaks, the horses with the right trainer and running over the right distance on the right ground.”
“We try to reseed 10-12 acres each year. and do a paddock in the autumn, and then weather permitting, make new hay the following summer – not this year, sadly, because of the persistent rain. “I always like to have two years of our own hay; you know where it’s come from and what’s in it. This year there hasn’t been a summer and the foals are dizzy from going out and coming in for dry lies. They would normally be out all night, including the yearlings, too. It has been very wet, which has made it difficult for man and beasts.” Making things a little easier for Morris is the fact that Iverk House consists of two farms of 60 acres each. “When mares come back from
nother crucial factor in producing good horses is good land on which to raise them, as Morris knows only too well. “Land management is very important,” he says. “We had the soil tested as we had boarders for three to four seasons and although they pay, they wreck your land. We’ve only 120 acres here and that old adage of 11 acres per mare and their followers is my belief, especially after having too many horses on the farms. “You need to give the paddocks a break from horses. When the foals are weaned and the mares come off, we won’t use that field for horses again for six months. You need to rotate the paddocks to that level. The quality of yearling and foals we now have shows that the system works for us. “Our land’s reputation is very good now. It took two to three years to get it back after the boarders and we have cattle from spring to autumn and sheep on it all year round. The yearlings graze with the cattle; I’m a great believer in keeping cattle with them. Horses and cattle are natural herd animals and complement each other in their grazing.
Good land is vital for raising horses. Morris will always rest a paddock for six months after the foals are weaned
iverk house stud
Mrs Christina Patino’s successes with Elusive Pimpernel and Snow Fairy, along with Manieree’s two Group wins, have woken up Sheer Audacity’s family,
visiting stallions they can be kept totally separate from the others. We have a winter paddock of 20 acres for the in-foal mares. Depending on the weather we bring the weanlings in at night, but if it’s a mild winter they’ll stay out.” All sales preparation is done on the farm and the basics really begin from day one. “You can’t take short cuts,” Morris insists, “all the foals have to be well handled. The farrier sees them every two to three weeks and Lyn’s artist’s eye for detail is fantastic; she can spot a problem pretty quickly. “We don’t over-correct, just keep the growth plates level. We do the sales preparation work ourselves over eight weeks. They are
all bitted as weaners; we try not to do their brains in too much. “They are in at night and have their work during the morning and then go back out in the field again. By the time of the sales all the yearlings will have been rollered, side reined and lightly lunged.” Having a staff of good horsemen is important to Morris and he has a good team at Iverk House. “Davina Boyle is here full time and she has a tremendous amount of experience behind her. Richard O’Gorman, who is a licensed trainer, comes in the mornings and the amateur jockey
iverk house stud David Walsh in the afternoons. They all have good horsemanship skills. “I hate horses being shouted at and knocked around. You need to be firm and patient give them a lot of handling. Nearly every animal we’ve had has got to the racecourse and with plenty of handling and patience from birth, you can reduce unnecessary accidents.” Morris says that he learnt a lot from Isabel and continues to learn from Alexander, but he is an expert in his own right and is truly passionate about horseracing. He is a member of the Turf Club, is on a number of committees and isn’t afraid to give up his time and give something back to the industry. “In my other business, absolutely no one is interested in racing, not one,” he despairs. “If we don’t get people racing, no one will be encouraged to buy the horses. I’d like to see racing at The Curragh and the other major

tracks increase their attendances to where they were in the past. “The Indecon report, commissioned by Minister Coveney, published in August recommends that the HRI Board establishes a permanent strategic marketing committee, which hopefully will come up with ideas on how to restore these attendances, encouraging a resurgence in commercial sponsorship and help with prize-money.” Both Morris and Alexander feel that
prize-money would be better spent spread throughout all pattern races, rather than to market a championship. Like many, they are at a loss to know as to why more of those experienced and knowledgeable in racing are not employed within the administrating bodies. Perhaps the Indecon report will address this as well. Neither Morris nor Alexander are likely to become disillusioned with the sport, however. “Every morning I wake up and say I’ve got to get out of this bloody business!” Morris laughs, but his ambitions and his breeding policies are very much focused on the future. The five yearlings in the paddocks, colts by Dylan Thomas and Verglas, and fillies by Duke Of Marmalade, Azamour and Medicean, are part of that ambitious future plan. Hopefully, despite the successes of the past, with a bit of luck and a following wind, the best is yet to come for Iverk House.

Pete Denk asks three American-based horsemen for their views on the current state and the future of horseracing in the...
ith the Keeneland September Yearling Sale approaching, we invited three stakeholders from the US to tell us in what direction they think racing is and should be heading – issues discussed included breeding, racing surfaces and medication. Bill Casner, co-founded WinStar Farm
in Lexington, Kentucky. One of the US’s leading breeder/owners, WinStar has won races such as the Kentucky Derby, Belmont Stakes and Dubai World Cup. Casner left WinStar and currently maintains about 20 broodmares and 20 racehorses. He is one of the owners leading the movement to ban race day drugs in US. Jamie LaMonica is the president
of the The Stallion Co., a full service bloodstock agency based in Lexington that specialises in stallions, stallion syndications, seasons and mating recommendations. He is an expert on the US bloodstock market. Geoffrey Russell is director of sales at the Keeneland Association. He was born in Dublin, Ireland and came to America in 1982.
What is your opinion of race day medication usage on racehorses?
bleed.” Well, I’ve been running all my horses without Lasix for a year-and-a-half and about 10 per cent of them bleed. Of the few that have bled, even they have run well and two of them have won! One of the common factors among those that bled is that they were administered butazolidin the night before. When bute was withheld in subsequent races, it eliminated the bleeds in all but two horses. Butazolidin is a caustic drug with a litany of side-effects that interferes with clotting and can cause a severe irritation to the vein. It very well may be one of the contributing causes to bleeding. I am convinced that taking away Lasix has a positive effect on a horse’s overall health. We have taken weight records of my stable, and the horses who have run on Lasix have lost 35-100 pounds the morning after the race, and that’s after a night of hydration. Lasix gives these horses two major things to overcome – dehydration and the stress of racing. Once people get their horses off Lasix, they’re going to see their two-year-olds moving forward much more effectively from a fitness standpoint of racing, because they won’t have to deal with those two stress factors.
What is holding us back in the US is fear. Trainers are fearful that half their horses will have torrential bleeds and they’ll lose half their stables. That’s not going to happen. Our horses once thrived without Lasix. They could run on an every-two-week schedule; many of our trainers now believe our horses need four to six weeks to recover from a race. Jamie LaMonica: I feel like as long as the rules are defined and it’s a level playing field, then I am fine with the current race day medications. Lasix, a bleeder medication, is not the pandora’s box it’s being made out to be. If you took away Lasix today, you would have a hard time filling races that are already hard to fill. Lasix isn’t the problem. The problem is that we aren’t catching the people manipulating the system, nor are we punishing them appropriately. I don’t believe there is as vast a difference between America and the rest of the world as it’s made out to be on medication. I think the rest of the world uses medications in their training and racing. Also, there are different surface and weather challenges that alter how stables must be managed. To me there’s a bigger issue. Racing has to
Casner: I am not anti-medication, but I am anti-medication on race day and I think there is a strong argument for us to come into line with the rest of the world on race day meds. We had 45 major owners initially step forward and commit to running their two-year-olds without race day medication, and that list includes some of the biggest names in the game: Darley Stud, Frank Stronach, Juddmonte, Claiborne. Subsequently, we have appealed to owners across America and we have had a number step up and say they will join the movement and not run their two-year-olds on race day medication. It’s a re-education process as, depending on which state, we’ve had between 17 and 30 years of Lasix usage. We have a whole generation of trainers and owners who truly believe Lasix is the right thing for their horses. What I think we’re going to see happen is that these owners who have stepped up and committed to not run on race day meds, they are going to find their horses are not bleeding in the numbers people fear they will. You hear it repeated: “Most all horses
Lasix isn’t the problem. The problem is that we aren’t catching the people manipulating the system, nor are we punishing them appropriately
The rest of the world has a problem with America’s race day medication policy, but what needs to be explained is that in every jurisdiction in the world, medication is used in the training of horses. To some degree we know more about the drugs our horses are being given here than they do elsewhere. We are more transparent in that regard.
What have we learned about the artificial surfaces and are you a fan of them?
Casner: Categorically I am a fan of the synthetic surfaces. I look at the science and I look at the data, and I look at my horses and how they respond to training and racing. There is no doubt that synthetic surfaces are safer – the accumulative data over tens of 1,000s of races shows that synthetic tracks are significantly safer than dirt tracks. There is a multitude of reasons why some people embrace them and some people don’t. There are a number of trainers who don’t like them because they are not
be made easier for people to want to breed or buy horses, but by no means should that mean cheating or using medications that mask problems or act as performance enhancers. People think that by getting rid of Lasix, you’ll make it so they can’t mask performance-enhancing drugs, but I don’t think that’s the case. Geoffrey Russell: It would make sense to have the rules the same everywhere in the world; it would make life easier for the globalisation of the industry. I can argue for both sides of the medication issue, but there should always be a concern for the welfare of the horse. A lot of people think Lasix is a therapeutic medication so why would we want to take something away that is therapeutic for the horse? I think we need stronger rules and stronger penalties for those who abuse the medication rules. The drug testing in America is probably superior to the testing in almost any other jurisdiction.
speed-favouring surfaces. On synthetics the jockey has to have a feel for the pace because there will be horses running at him in the end. On dirt, the field-spread from first to last is around 30l, while on synthetic it’s 20l and it’s not uncommon to see five to six horses headto-head near the wire. The average winning margin is considerably less than it is on dirt and trainers, who have built their training programmes selecting for speed, don’t like that, even though the average winning

A marquee race such as the Blue Grass Stakes (G1), which used to be a major Kentucky Derby prep, is no longer a significant factor for the Triple Crown races
times are faster, synthetic surfaces are not an advantage to speed. I believe that is why we have a number of trainers against it. Plus, the racing surface has always been the excuse du jour for losing races. The courses have had to go through a learning curve of how to maintain the synthetic surfaces. They have continued to get better as the trackmen have learned the nuances, and there is a lot of nuance to them – heat, moisture, etc... Synthetic tracks do need to have some slide to them, otherwise they can jar horses up. There are safe dirt tracks out there, but, as a group, the synthetic tracks tend to be our safest surfaces. However, it costs around $5 million to put in a synthetic track, and most racetracks are struggling now. Basically it comes down to a person’s agenda. My agenda is to run on the safest surface I can for my horses, and ultimately that’s the most important thing for our industry. LaMonica: I am for anything that makes horseracing safer and more fun for the spectator and the owner. I am a very casual bettor – I’m not a major gambler, but I enjoy handicapping very much.
I feel the handicapping angle on the synthetic surfaces is challenging, and it hurts the handle. I am told that 20 per cent of the bettors make up 80 per cent of the handle and, if that is accurate info, and if that 20 per cent is steering betting dollars away from synthetic surfaces, then we have an issue. Without the gambling, we don’t have a sport so we need to make sure the guys who are gambling like what we’re doing, because there are lots of other things for them to gamble on. The breakdown statistics are very challenging. Because the synthetic races are run at Keeneland, Woodbine and Southern California, some of the highest-class tracks, they produce these statistics that show the breakdowns are lower, but you’re comparing them with the tracks such as Mountaineer, Ruidoso and Remington, with other older surfaces and cheaper horses. Those arguing that point are taking out a lot of variables and not comparing apples to apples. The synthetics are great to train on because, even when it pours, you can train on it; they save a lot of cost and training time. But for racing, a marquee race such as the Blue Grass Stakes (G1) at Keeneland, which used to be a major Kentucky Derby prep, is no longer a significant factor for the Triple Crown races because of the new surface. The winner of the Blue Grass is no longer a horse to beat in the Derby. Ideally, racetracks would have all three surfaces. That might be costly, but certainly I’d like to see it at a

couple of major racetracks. Russell: We’ve found that some horses like the all-weather very much. We have horses who like dirt, we have horses who like turf and we have horses who like synthetic. Contrary to popular belief, all turf horses do not like synthetic tracks. But say a horse doesn’t like turf or dirt, where are we going to run them? Polytrack helps optimise those horses. And one good thing about synthetic tracks is that when it rains, it doesn’t wash all the horses off the card. It keeps fields intact. And from a trainer’s point of view, they don’t lose days of training. That being said, with the way the foal crop and the economy are going right now, I don’t see any more added investment likely in a synthetic track in the US in the near future.
Are slot machines good for US racing?
Casner: Slots are a short-term fix to a big problem, they are certainly not the ultimate fix. We need to remember that what the state gives, the state can take away. We’ve seen it happen in Canada and in a number of states. There are a lot of competing entities for the revenue produced by those slot machines. In New York [which recently legalised slot machines at racetracks] right now we see $80,000 maiden races and it’s gonna be a huge stimulus to the agricultural economic engine in that state. It’s gonna create jobs and bring horses to the state; apparently every new mare creates about four jobs. Whether the state government recognises that remains to be seen, but there will be a lot of competing entities for that revenue in the future. If the laws are structured for the benefit of racing in the long term, higher purses derived from slots money will be a huge stimulus to our industry – owners need to have an opportunity to at least try and break even. If owners are continually losing money, this game ceases to be fun. LaMonica: I’m a product of New York. I made a big investment in New York because

us viewpoint of the video lottery terminals. The breeder awards there are fantastic. Slots can give an amazing amount of positive return to the industry. By nature, I’m a conservative guy and 10 years ago, I was completely against the slots. Russell: In the short term, slots have proven to be very helpful. They produce a pure cash injection into the industry. Just look at the purses: they are to run a $35,000 value maiden claiming race at Saratoga for $42,000, and have just run a maiden special weight for two-year-olds for $80,000! But, in the long term, no, slots aren’t the answer. You can use any state in the US that has had racinos as an example. The state, which gives the money to the racetrack, can also take it back. And when governments need money, racing is an easy target. And now we have race tracks only running races so they can keep the casino license – they aren’t putting any money or effort into improving racing.
How will 30 per cent decline in the North American foal crop affect US racing?
Casner: It will look different. We’re going to have smaller fields. Tracks with bigger purses will have an edge in filling their stalls. Since the 1980s there has been a proliferation of racing in America, but the really successful meets are the smaller boutique meets such as Saratoga, Del Mar and Keeneland. Those meets continue to show healthy trends. There are no guarantees in business. So there are probably going to be racetracks

Jamie La Monica: believes the decline in the foal crop was a “good thing”, but racing needs to adapt
that fail. They won’t be able to draw enough horses or enough quality horses to put on a show. Advanced Deposit Wagering (ADW) continues to grow and has become a force. People who wager on ADW want better horses and bigger fields; they have choices. LaMonica: I think the drop in the foal crop was necessary and it was a very good thing. We suffered a declining economy and were already having trouble with excess horses. Now that the economy is stabilising somewhat, the people who are still selling horses will be rewarded. We won’t have a lot of horses which can’t be sold and who need homes. Even when we had huge foal crops, you still would get four-horse races at Santa Anita. The racing secretaries will face some challenges. They have to write races that fit the horses on their backside, but I’d be more concerned with the problems of racing; then worry about the size of the foal crop. Russell: When you have less foals, you have less starters, and when you have less starters, do you need as many racetracks? Field size is very important for betting turnover. If we don’t have full fields, that will affect betting turnover and then affect purses.
Will there be some consolidation of racetracks and/or reduced racing dates in America? It’s quite possible.
What is the state of the US breeding industry?
Casner: I think our breeding industry is strong and viable. I think we produce a very, very good horse and I don’t agree with the belief that our pedigrees have diminished because of medication. Every geneticist I have talked to says you cannot change things that quickly. But I do think that, long term, if we continue on this medication path for 50-75 years, it could have a negative impact on the breed. Although I don’t think it’s true, there is a perception internationally that drugs have negatively affected our gene pool. If somebody believes that it has, they can make the choice not to come to our markets and buy our horses, even though I still think we’re raising the best horses in the world. American breeders work very hard at producing a good product. We may have some people not coming here, but the global industry continues to grow and the demand for American-breds continues to be high around the world.
Russell: American breeders have done a very good job in reacting to the economic crisis. Our breeders knew they had to reduce the number of mares being bred and increase their quality. We have a smaller foal crop, but the quality of horse being raised is as good or better than it’s ever been. The popularity of American pedigrees is very high in countries such as South America,

Turkey, Korea and Russia, while Europeans have been coming to North America for the best part of 40 years to buy and build up broodmare bands and stallion rosters. The profile of a US horse is an eight to nine furlong dirt horse, while Europeans race primarily on turf. That has become the major divide at the moment and there’s a hesitation to bring European horses over to America because there is a question of whether they will act on dirt. Meanwhile, Europe has become self-sufficient. The two largest investors in the world — Coolmore and Darley – are based in Europe, and that supplements the European market drastically.
Is there anything the US should look to emulate from around the globe?
Casner: There are very skilled horsemen, great programmes and great racing in Europe and around the world. The best horse in the world right now might be Frankel. The horses that come out of Australia are wonderful – Black Caviar, So You Think... again, the racing and breeding industries continue to grow internationally. LaMonica: We’ve got to mainstream our sport a little bit more. I thought what Churchill Downs did with night racing was great. Kids are going on dates to the track, it made racing fun. And horseracing should be fun. That’s where countries such as Australia, Japan and some of the European nations get it. They’ve managed to mainstream horseracing. We talk about NBA basketball and the NFL being impediments to the sport’s popularity here. It’s not like Australia or Europe aren’t soccer crazy, yet they’ve managed to mainstream horseracing. When you go into a pub or a restaurant, you can bet on horses over a beer and with your friends. And ownership is also much easier abroad. It is shocking how difficult it is for someone to become an owner of a racehorse in the US. We treat people like criminals: you have to get fingerprinted in order to spend millions of
LaMonica: When we breed horses in America, some fundamental hypocrisies take place. Everyone wants to breed for speed and two-year-old form, yet everyone who wants to buy a horse wants to win the Derby and go 1m2f miles in spring of the three-year-old season. I am not a fan of large book sizes for our stallions as I think we are getting away from making each foal a commodity. You used to be able to walk a horse up at a sale, and it might have a little flaw here and there but, if it was out of a good mare and by a good stallion, it was a limited commodity. The two-year-old market has changed a how we breed horses. You see more disparities in the match between mare and stallion. Stallions are getting too much credit, and too much blame. The broodmare is extremely important, and we’ve lost a lot of our mares to Japan, Europe and the Arabs. But I think we’re still breeding a pretty good horse, and we have had very strong performances from US-breds on the world stage to prove it. I’m not ready to condemn our breeder, just yet. I do think we could do some things that would be smarter. I would like to see regulations of stud books, that would give us more disparity in our gene pool. Inbreeding has become fashionable by necessity, not by design. You can rarely find outcrosses anymore, we’re so heavy with Northern Dancer and Mr. Prospector. The popularity of these nick reports does pose a question. Is sire line to sire line how you should plan a mating? I think a mating is two individuals, not two pieces of paper. I like it when I see people trying to breed an athlete by using the physical and the genetic profile with some forethought -- not just, “I need to breed to this sire because this is what the market wants.” We breed too much for the market and for commercial appeal, but you can’t blame people for doing it. When you go fishing, you don’t pick the lure you like, you use the lure that catches fish. Commercial appeal is what is driving our market, there are very few owner-breeder racers left in America.
dollars on horses with little odds of success. And it’s problematic to run in different states. When I tell a Wall Street guy what he has to do to get licensed to own a racehorse, he looks at me like my head is spinning around. For a sport that needs new owners, – and let’s be blunt, we need new owners – we don’t do much to make it a welcoming process. Why wouldn’t you have a cute girl come to your office with an ipad, put your fingerprints on the ipad, help you fill out your application, accept your fee and make it easy? What would that person cost the racing industry? Russell: Watching European racing day in and day out, Europe’s major festivals – Ascot, Goodwood, The Curragh – are wonderful to watch. European high-end racing is very good, and we can learn from it. But we have to remember those meetings are just a small percentage, and North America can put on a spectacle too. The Kentucky Derby, Breeders’ Cup, Keeneland in the spring or in the fall are special meets, too.
What does the US racing or breeding industry need to do for the future?
Casner: We certainly have our challenges. In 1980 racing was the Number 1 spectator sport in this country, but we have not been good custodians of this industry and have not been marketing it to a changing public. We have not had the vision of the changing landscape of our business; we have not evolved. Everybody has the right to spend their money where they want to, but, as I learnt in business years ago, you can never afford to lose one customer. We know that every business loses customers, but if you lose them for the wrong reason, for something you’ve done wrong, or they don’t feel your product is good, or you’ve given them bad service, those are the unforgivables in business. We have to endeavor to produce the best product we can. On the medication front, nothing happens overnight. Change is difficult, but it will
us viewpoint happen. Kentucky is the first to ban race day meds in two-year-olds, although it still has to go through the legislative process. It should be in place by 2014. I suspect New York will be the second state to make such a move, and if two major states pass rules, we’ll see the other states following. At the Breeders’ Cup this year the twoyear-olds will run without Lasix or race day medications. It was only going to happen with the owners stepping up and taking the lead. LaMonica: Without the bettors and the owners, we don’t have a sport, we can’t forget that. Right now our sport is challenging for anyone looking at it from a business point of view. You buy a horse for $100,000 at Keeneland. You’ve got $140,000 in him by the time he gets to the races. Now you’ve got to win what, maybe four races to get your investment back? That’s tough. People can buy yachts instead, and they’re gonna spend money and they’re going to enjoy it, but they won’t make money. In some ways horses should be viewed the same way. I’m a big traditionalist. I’m not saying tear down Saratoga, but you take your 80-yearold grandma to Saratoga and there’s no air conditioning; it’s a tough day out for her. Yankee Stadium had a tremendous tradition, Boston Garden had tradition. Yet both of those institutions were torn down and replaced. That was done to meet the expectations of fans and spectators. Racing doesn’t adapt nearly as quickly as it needs to. We should have used the scariness of the economic times to make some very serious changes, which could have done a ton of good for the game. When people are desperate, you can get a lot of things passed. Now they’re all thinking it’s gonna get better; I hope we didn’t miss an opportunity. Russell: The breeding industry in North America is Number 1 in the world, and Kentucky is the thoroughbred horse capital of the world. But, the great thing about the thoroughbred industry being a global industry, is that we can learn from each other. We should go and experience what other countries do. The most important thing for US-based breeders is to travel to other countries and see its done there. No area should become too parochial. It’s a global business and we need to think globally. That’s just as important for Americans as it is for Europeans, Russians, Koreans, everyone. We all need to ensure we are importing horses to strengthen and add new bloodlines.

Paul Reddam, the Canadian-born owner of this year’s Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner, I’ll Have Another, sees the world without boundaries, and is prepared to take a big bite out of the life that view can
offer. Unafraid to take risks, the entrepreneur revels in the opportunities for excitement and fun that racing horses around the world provides. Reddam has around 40 thoroughbreds in trainer: 20 with trainer Doug O’Neil, nine with Ben Cecil, and two with Simon Callaghan, along with five homebreds with his breeding manager/trainer Ed Freeman near his home in California. He also uses Mark Hennig in New York, and Brian Meehan in Britain, the country from which his lovely English wife Zillah hails. He has raced his horses in Dubai for years, and part of his great disappointment at the retirement of I’ll Have Another on the eve of the Belmont Stakes was not only the sudden end to the horse’s historic quest to win the Triple Crown, but that Reddam had harbored dreams of competing his tough, talented colt internationally and let him prove his ability on the global racing stage Motivated by the thrill of competitive sports, Reddam covets prizes around the racing world. As an owner racing horses in the US, he’s wanted to win the Triple Crown races. While Great Hunter and Liquidity finished unplaced in the Kentucky Derby in 2007, and Ten Most Wanted was second in the 2003 Belmont Stakes, I’ll Have Another gave Reddam his roses, but it was the win on the Preakness which proved the horse’s talent to everyone else. “He won fairly easily in the Derby,” points out Reddam. “After the Santa Anita Derby (G1), Mario [Gutierrez] told me he didn’t ride him hard to win, he had it all the time, and I thought ‘okay, kid, right...!’ “But then you watch the Kentucky Derby and you can see what he meant. I’ll Have Another was a top, top-class racehorse. It took the Preakness before others began to believe it, though. The Preakness said he was good; it confirmed what we already knew.” Reddam has had to deal with the lack of respect his horse received, first from handicappers – few of whom outside of California selected him as one who could win the Derby – and then from US breeders, who rejected him as a stallion. Racing is, as the former philosophy professor explanations, a sport “made up

of opinions,” yet the pain remains. Reddam was extremely disappointed that only two American farms showed any interest in the horse as a stallion offering sums in the region
So Reddam sold his Flower Alley colt for $10 million to Shigeyuki Okada’s Big Red Farm in Japan, to stand alongside stallions such as Conduit, Agnes Digital, Roses In May. “I’ll Have Another was dismissed by the breeders, and I have a couple of theories as to why,” says Reddam. “He was an $11,000 yearling, so I think that they were worried what his yearlings would look like. And I think with all the negative publicity that Doug got during the Triple Crown, it tainted the horse in their minds.” But the transfer to Japan has probably been the best result and Reddam’s bloodstock advisor and racing manager Jamie McCalmont explains succinctly: “The horse is going to get three times better mares in Japan.” Such is Reddam’s desire to see I’ll Have Another’s progeny run in the US that he now plans to buy mares in foal to the horse he believes in so strongly. “Japan sells weanlings, too, so I could get some that way, but I think to buy mares in foal to I’ll Have Another would be a lot of fun!” he enthuses. “They could come back here and be Cal-breds. I would love to race a Cal-bred by I’ll Have Another!” The idea is indicative not only of Reddam’s enthusiasm for racing, his respect for the horse with a wholehearted desire to give him the best scenario to succeed, but also of his support for California racing, which goes beyond merely basing his stable there. He has previously supported California’s breeding industry by standing his Grade 1-placed, Grade 3 winner Momentum (Nureyev – Imprudent Love (Foolish Pleasure)) at Vessels Stallion Farm, and the horse is now pensioned at the farm. Reddam purchased about 25 mares specifically in order to breed to the stallion. In a display of his famous generosity (this is a man who let bloodstock agent Dennis O’Neill, trainer Doug’s brother, choose a new BMW after the Derby in order to show his appreciation for finding I’ll Have Another), Reddam gave California breeders an incredible deal, which, unfortunately became a good idea offered at just the wrong time. In 2006, Reddam stood Momentum for $5,000, and offered to buy back the foals as August yearlings in 2007 for $15,000 if breeders were unhappy with how they had progressed. Reddam lost his shirt on the deal, but he stood by his word and bought back as necessary, while also finding homes for those he bred himself. Reddam also puts his money where his

so that’s part of it, too. And Brian is easy to deal with. He’s game to come over to America if we want to try a horse here.” Jamie McCalmont notes that market plays
mouth is and his company has sponsored the $750,000 CashCall Futurity since 2007, and the $750,000 CashCall Mile through 20062008. His dedication to the thoroughbred industry in California has been recognised and in 2011 the Thoroughbred Owners of California awarded him its Industry Service Award. Reddam’s Grade 1 winner Square Eddie (Smart Strike – Forty Gran (El Gran Senor)), who began his career in Britain, stands at Vessels, with his first crop now two-year-olds. “Square Eddie bred 40 mares three years in a row,” says breeding manager Ed Freeman, who has seen them since they were foals. “The babies are very nice – bigger than expected, great minds with correct, short cannons. They are very straightforward, look through the bridle and are get-on-with-it types.” Reddam takes a realistic view on the future, but smiles: “I would be disappointed if Ed weren’t high on them! “But, of course, in this business we’re all optimists. We’ll have to see what they do on the track.” Next year, Square Eddie, of whom Reddam will have 20 of his own to look forward to running, is an example of many of Reddam’s top horses – he was bought by the Reddam team in 2008 while with trainer Brian Meehan having already begun his racing career in Europe. The Smart Strike colt was transfered to the US where he won the Breeders’ Futurity (G1) at Keeneland on the Polytrack before he finished second to Midshipman in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile, also run on synthetic. It was a successful strategy that had found its origins four years earlier when Reddam purchased 75 per cent of Wilko, then in training with Jeremy Noseda at Newmarket. A month after purchase the Awesome Again colt won the 2004 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile. Similarly in 2006, Reddam bought Red Rocks leaving the still-developing colt in training with Brian Meehan. That year the Manton-based trainer travelled the colt to the US for a successful tilt at the Breeders’ Cup Turf. Reddam has had horses with Meehan ever since, his other top purchases including Crowded House, winner of the Racing Post Trophy. “When buying a horse you don’t know where it’s going to end up,” Reddam says. “We don’t buy a horse deliberately to bring it back to America. A top-class horse can race in Europe and make money, but for a middle-ofthe-road horse, there are more opportunities here. Jamie has been working for me for nearly 10 years and he’s located in England,
its part in where they find their horses, too. “Our policy is not to have any policies!” he laughs. “At the beginning, we wanted readymade two-year-olds and did well with Great

Hunter, who was purchased after his maiden win, and Sharp Lisa, who sold for $3.7 million and was one of the first we had with Doug and Dennis O’Neill. But we got Notional from a two-year-old sale, so we were already mixing it up several years ago.” Recently buying ready-made horses in Europe has become very expensive, and as Reddam is a businessman after all, the no-policy policies have shifted. “In the last three years, the private market has gone up 20 per cent, while the worldwide market overall went down 30-40 per cent. We’ve dabbled in and out of the two-yearold market, but haven’t done as well,” says McCalmont. Making smart choices, and ones not driven by ego, has marked out Reddam’s involvement in racing from the beginning. He has always loved the action of racing and betting, and thrived on the risk, but has always had his eye on making reasonable return. He began putting together ownership syndicates with Standardbreds in 1979 and still owns a few that he races in California. He claimed his first thoroughbred in 1988 after being impressed when visiting Santa Anita Park when working as a philosophy professor at Cal State, Los Angeles. A gambler and entrepreneur by nature, Reddam found more financial opportunity when he formed SC Funding, his own mortgage brokerage company before he was wiped out by an unscrupulous CEO. He then started Ditech Funding which cut out the middle man and sold directly to the mortgage buyer – its hallmark was an aggressive advertising TV campaign. In 2000, Reddam sold to General Motors Acceptance Corp. and started CashCall, a

Unraced at two, and eighth in a troubled trip on unfavorably soft ground at Royal Ascot in the St. James’s Palace Stakes, Cogito is due soone to make a US debut. Reddam reports that the colt’s future is still under discussion: if he runs well in America, he could return to England, but if not, he could stay in the US. “When I see Fappiano in a pedigree I see that as a pure dirt sire line, so it is worth a try,” McCalmont explains. “Frege, who is also named after another philosopher, was a 60,000gns purchase. He could also end up in US by the end of the year.” When McCalmont looks for horses for Reddam, there are no set criteria other than distance ability. Reddam dismisses surface as only one reason a horse succeeds or fails, and says that way too much emphasis is put

business loaning to high-risk borrowers with unsecured loans. The sale of Ditech gave Reddam greater financial firepower and so he dived further into thoroughbreds ownership purchasing Swept Overboard from the Marshall Naify dispersal for $700,000. The son of End Sweep won a couple of Grade 1 races before he was sold to Japanese breeders for $3 million. Elloluv, a Gilded Time foal of 2000, was purchased for $120,000. She went on to win multiple Grade 1 races, earn $1,297,000, before being sold at auction as a broodmare for $1,750,000. Recently, Reddam purchased Wittgenstein (Shamardal – La Vita E Bella (Definite Article)) from Meehan. The two-year-old filly ran in the Sorrento Stakes (G3) at Del Mar in August over Polytrack, connections sending her to the US in search of the better prizemoney on offer. Unfortunately, she finished unplaced. “We ran her in the Sorrento Stakes because we couldn’t get into a turf race either in Del Mar or Saratoga,” says McCalmont. “I think there is something wrong there, when turf races are overfilling like that. They need to be writing more turf races in America.” She is aptly, if wryly, named for the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein, whom Reddam quoted after winning the Derby: “After all philosophical problems are solved, nothing important will have been accomplished.”
on that single factor in deciding where to run a horse. “When we buy in Europe, we want to make sure the horse can run two turns,” McCalmont explains, and added that they don’t mind if a horse is smaller than others would like. “We look at the US-breds bought by Europeans because I think Americans breed a very good horse. “There is a better gene pool in Europe right now, with Galileo and the Montjeus and those great Coolmore bloodlines, but those horses are also too expensive at auction as unraced types. “We look at maidens in America and Europe closely, but there is a better market in Europe once the form has been shown.” McCalmont gives credit to Reddam for his keen business sense as a guiding force behind many of their plans. Reddam does not believe in following the latest fashion, ignoring his gut instincts. Rather, he will zig while others zag, and McCalmont loves the happy surprises this often brings. “You’re only as good as the man at the helm,” McCalmont says. “Paul is so clever. Most of these things are his ideas. We’ve been involved with a lot of good horses, and I’m lucky to be in this position.” One recent idea that has paid off tremendously launched Reddam into the world of pinhooking when he saw that yearlings, even in this depressed market, weren’t selling for what he felt they should. Liking the operation at Wavertree Stables, he played golf with Ciaran Dunne and set him up to sell their juveniles.
“Last year, the foal crop was down, and Paul was watching that,” explains McCalmont. “I bought a really nice Lion Heart out of a Seattle Slew mare for $130,000. Paul said great, don’t stop until you pick up 10, so we spent $1 million. “We’ve sold five as two-year-olds, and the Lion Heart colt has become Know More, who we’ve kept and he won the Best Pal Stakes (G2) on his debut. We also have another called We’ve Had Enough who won his debut, and I’m pretty excited about him too.” The O’Neill-trained Know More astonished everyone in the Best Pal. Turf writers were scrambling to find the last time such talent was revealed by an unraced maiden in a US graded stakes, and they had to go back more than three decades. Reddam savours such results, yet he takes the disappointments philosophically. It means that the whole team can be confident in their decision making and can enjoy the ride with him. From renting large houses for Team O’Neill during the Triple Crown races, to golfing with Dennis O’Neill, Reddam is an epitome of someone who makes most of the fun to be had from racing. After the Belmont, Doug O’Neill summed up his feelings for Reddam to reporters. “Paul is awesome. A mentor in so many ways. He has an unbelievable work ethic, and he’s never had anything handed to him. He’s the most loyal guy I’ve ever met. There’s no possible way we could have enjoyed our journey with any other owner the way we have with Paul. Everything’s first class with him.” Yet there is still more in racing (and its quite a list!) that Reddam wants to achieve as he looks to the future. “We’re not afraid to try again for the whole Triple Crown,” he said, his competitiveness shining through as he smiles: “I’ve won a race on Dubai World Cup day, but not the World Cup itself. I’ve run a horse in Hong Kong, and Brian and Jamie went but I didn’t get to go, so I would love that opportunity again. “I want to win a Japan Cup someday. Americans have a narrow view of what racing can be all about. I’m lucky to be associated with Jamie, because he also wants to try them anywhere in the world they might be competitive.” What’s the betting that all of the above is achieved over the next few years?

first crop sires
The future starts now Alan Porter casts his eye over those stallions with first yearlings this autumn by order of average foal price achieved in 2011
he stallions that retired to stud in 2008 and 2009 faced a climate very different to that which had prevailed for several years previously. We had become accustomed to the first-season sires being the hottest items around with their books filling faster than all but a few established superstars. That situation changed dramatically following the global financial meltdown that took place in the latter part of 2008, and, as far as the breeding industry was concerned, there was an overnight reversal of the established trend
We don’t yet know anything about Sea The Stars’s sire Cape Cross as a sire of sires, but it is encouraging that Lawman, another Classic-winning grandson of Green Desert, is off to a promising start
There are few stallions in recent years whose offspring have been as eagerly anticipated as Sea The Stars (Cape Cross – Urban Sea (Miswaki)). Winner of the last eight of his nine starts, including the 2,000 Guineas (G1), Derby (G1), Eclipse Stakes (G1), International Stakes (G1), Irish Champion Stakes (G1) and Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe (G1), in the eyes of many he earned his place on a pantheon alongside such as Ribot, Sea-Bird, Nijinsky, Mill Reef and Brigadier Gerard. If his race-record was not enough, Sea The Stars is also half-brother to Galileo, generally acknowledged as currently being the world’s leading sire. For good measure, his dam Urban Sea won the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe (G1) and is three-parts sister to the Classic winner and Classic sire, King’s Best. We don’t yet know anything about Sea The Stars’s sire, Cape Cross, as a sire of sires, but it is encouraging that Lawman, another Classic-winning grandson of Green Desert has got off to a promising start. The first crop weanlings by Sea The Stars were the most sought after at the sales in 2011, outselling even Galileo, 14 of them
with a dramatic shift back to the proven commodities. Of course, we don’t yet know how it is going to impact the stallions with first yearlings in 2012, but happily the freshman of 2012 – those who retired in 2008 – are offering some positive omens with Henrythenavigator, New Approach, Sixties Icon, Tamayuz, Mount Nelson, Hannouma and Falco having all been represented by first-crop two-year-old stakes winners. We look here at the top ten freshman yearling sires by 2011 foal average, with a brief recap of their careers and pedigrees, and a quick look at crosses to keep an eye out for. averaging £338,768. It’s going be interesting see whether he follows Cape Cross or Galileo in his preferred choice of mares, though rather intriguingly both Cape Cross and Galileo have done well over Danehill, even though that horse is is by Cape Cross’s grandsire, Danzig. We’ll also be fascinated to see how the bold experiment of breeding Sea The Stars to mares by Galileo, giving 2 x 3 inbreeding to Urban Sea, works out. We shouldn’t neccessarily expect too much too early though. Although Galileo has sired three champion two-year-old colts, he wasn’t that quickly out of the blocks as a sire, while the offspring of Cape Cross have also tended to do better with time. Although he topped the sires’ list at the early-season Arqana August Yearling Sale and provided the top lot, the majority of those offered at Deauville looked as though they would be better with a little more time under their belts. The second of the crop by foal average is Aqlaam (Oasis Dream – Bourbonella (Rainbow Quest)), who, like Sea The Stars, is a grandson of Green Desert, but in this case by that stallion’s star son, Oasis Dream.

Group race, the Prix d’Hedouville (G3). More of a stayer than his brothers he won a trio of Grade 1s over 1m4f, taking the Canadian International (G1), the Northern Dancer Turf Stakes (G1) and the Hollywood Turf Cup (G1). The brothers have left plenty of clues to follow as to what might be likely successful crosses, including Darshaan and Deploy from the Shirley Heights line; Sharpen Up via Diesis, Kris, Selkirk and Sanglamore; Blushing Groom through Rahy and Rainbow Quest; Sadler’s Wells and Mr. Prospector through Distant View, Kingmambo, Woodman and Zafonic. Twenty Champ Elysees foals were sold in 2011 and they averaged £32,856. From two sold at Deauville, he had a yearling average of €33,500.

He made his name as a miler, taking the Prix du Moulin de Longchamp (G1), Summer Mile Stakes (G1) and Jersey Stakes (G3), and beating all bar Goldikova in the Prix Jacques Le Marois (G1). Out of a mare by Rainbow Quest, Aqlaam should be open to most of the strains that have worked under his sire, including Sadler’s Wells, Ahonoora (through Indian Ridge and Inchinor), Mill Reef (including through Doyoun, Daylami and Shirley Heights), Sharpen Up (via Selkirk, Kris and Diesis), and Mr. Prospector through Kingmambo, Machiavellian and Zafonic. Thirteen Aqlaam weanlings were sold last year for an average of £47,799. At Arqana, his one offering from Oakgrove Stud was bought by Waratah Thoroughbreds for €160,000. We know that Dansili is a top-class sire, and it appears that his brother Cacique would have been very useful too, had he enjoyed normal fertility. So, what are the chances that another sibling Champs Elysees (Danehill – Hasili (Kahyasi)) can make the grade? He certainly had talent, although his best form was seen in the US to where he was transferred after winning his sole European

Next on the list, and like Champs Elysees from the Danehill line, with 20 weanlings realising £29,715 is European champion two-year-old Mastercraftsman (Danehill Dancer – Starlight Dreams ((Black Tie Affair)). A tough and talented juvneile, he won the Railway Stakes (G2), thePhoenix Stakes (G1) and the National Stakes (G1) at two, and then added the Diamond Stakes (G3), the Irish 2,000 Guineas (G1) and the St. James’s Palace Stakes (G1) the following year. He also gave the mighty Sea The Stars a scare in the International Stakes (G1), going down by just a length in a near track-record time. Mastercraftsman is by Danehill Dancer, one of Danehill’s most successful stallion sons and already represented by a pair of Group 1 sires in Choisir and Monsieur Bond. His pedigree means that he is free to cross with virtually all the strains that have worked with his sire and sons, among them Sadler’s Wells – including via Galileo, In The Wings (sire of Singspiel) and Old Vic – and his brother Fairy King. Nijinsky (including Kahyasi, Caerleon and Royal Academy), Last Tycoon, Night Shift, Storm Bird and Storm Cat, notably via Catrail, Giant’s Causeway and Mujadil, and Mr. Prospector, through Zafonic, Machiavellian and Kingmambo, with Woodman also appearing a good option. Roberto, Blushing Groom (including through Rahy, Rainbow Quest, Nashwan and Arazi), as well as inbreeding to Danehill Dancer’s broodmare sire Sharpen Up, could also do well. The French-based Soldier Of Fortune (Galileo – Affianced (Erin’s Isle)) has a lot to live up to as Galileo’s first four stallion sons – Teofilo, Heliostatic, New Approach and Sixties Icon – all have Group-winning two-year-olds in the their first crop. Soldier Of Fortune himself was more than capable at two: he broke his maiden and finished second in the Criterium de Saint-Cloud (G1) on his
first crop sires
Bushranger is one whose stock will be expected to come to hand early, given that he had a juvenile campaign that saw him win the Anglesey Stakes (G3), the Prix Morny (G1) and the Middle Park Stakes (G1)
Le Havre: already bought by Shadwell
Another based in France is Le Havre (Noverre – Marie Rheinberg (Surako)). He won four of six lifetime starts, including two of his three outings at two, and at three the Prix Djebel and French Derby (G1), while he also finished second in the French 2,000
final two outings of the year. However, it was really at three and four that he came into his own, his triumphs including a 9l victory in the Irish Derby (G1), Coronation Cup (G1), Prix Niel (G2) and Prix Noailles (G2). Soldier Of Fortune’s pedigree is free of Danehill and, given Galileo’s success with that sire line, we’d be keeping a look out for yealings bred on that cross, with Shirley Heights line mares also having obvious strong appeal. Soldier Of Fortune had just five weanlings sold last year, but they averaged a very solid £29,267, while at Arqana the 11 sold averaged €48,300 with a top-price of €80,000. Far more prolific in terms of sales offerings was Bushranger (Danetime – Danz Danz (Efisio)), who had 44 foals change hands at auction in 2011 for an average of £28,297. Bushranger is one whose stock will be expected to come to hand early, given that he had a juvenile campaign that saw him win the Anglesey Stakes (G3), the Prix Morny (G1) and the Middle Park Stakes (G1), both in record time, and take champion juvenile honours in England and France. Bushranger is a son of the over-achieving, but unfortunately short-lived, Danetime. Out of a mare by Lear Fan (dam by Lt. Stevens, a brother to Thong), Danetime loved to receive returns of Thong’s family through lines such as Sadler’s Wells, Fairy King, Nureyev and Thatch, and the same formula is likely to work well here. We’d also be interested in Bushranger offspring out of mares carrying Mark Of Esteem or Noverre, giving inbreeding to the Native Partner family.
Guineas (G1). His own sire Noverre was a top-miler, and although he wasn’t the most prolific of stakes sires, he did also get the Group 1 winners Music Show and Enora. It is also worth bearing in mind that there have been a number of very successful French stallions whose sires weren’t exactly standouts either, horses such as Linamix, Muhtathir, Chichicastenango and Turtle Bowl spring to mind. Le Havre does come from a stallion family on his distaff side as he is out of a half-sister to Polar Falcon, the sire of Pivotal. There are some potentially interesting matings that could be made with this pedigree as Noverre is by Rahy, a half-brother
to Singspiel, and from the family of Ajdal (broodmare sire of Mark Of Esteem) and Formidable (sire of Rahy). Bringing in Pivotal or Polar Falcon is an obvious angle, and Le Havre’s broodmare sire Surako is by Konigsstuhl from the family of Surumu, so a number of German strains would be of interest here, with Monsun and his sons looking particularly intriguing. Three Le Havre babies were sold in the ring last year for an average of £22,607. In France, Shadwell paid €120,000 for a colt out of Seracina (Nashwan) and his three sold averaged €76,000. Intense Focus (Giant’s Causeway – Daneleta (Danehill)) was at his best at two, when he won an extremely quick renewal of the Dewhurst Stakes (G1), defeating a field that included Rip Van Winkle, Lord Shanakill, Delegator and Shaweel. Intense Focus is by Giant’s Causeway, who already has a trio of Group/Grade 1 siring sons, including Shamardal and Footstepsinthesand, while his dam, who was Group placed, is out of stakes winner Zavaleta. This is the same family as another of the first year horses, Soldier Of Fortune. Intense Focus is free of one of the most successful crosses for Giant’s Causeway, that

first crop sires Intense Focus: has nine yearlings catalogued in the Orby Sale, four in the Sportsman’s and 13 due to be sold at the Tattersalls October Sale
Major Cadeaux: a smart miler
Major Cadeaux (Cadeaux Genereux – Maine Lobster (Woodman)) had a trio of weanlings sell last year for an average of £18,025. Runner-up to Holy Roman Emperor in the Coventry Stakes (G2) at two, Major Cadeaux developed into a very smart miler, taking the Sandown Mile (G2), the Greenham Stakes (G3) and J W Lees Stakes (G3), and taking third in the Sussex Stakes (G1) and Prix Jacques Le Marois (G1). By Cadeaux Genereux, Major Cadeaux is from a US family on the distaff side: his dam was by Woodman and out of Capades, a Grade 1 winner at two. Major Cadeaux is rather unusual in that he is free of Northern Dancer, and Cadeaux Genereux and his sons have crossed well over

Northern Dancer with successful branches including Lyphard (who worked well through Alzao), Be My Guest, Danzig (particularly Green Desert), Be My Guest, Nijinsky, Fairy King, Nureyev, Sadler’s Wells and Shareef Dancer. The much-travelled Archipenko (Kingmambo – Bound (Nijinsky)) captured five Group races from a mile to 1m2f in three different continents, with his victories including the Queen Elizabeth II Cup (G1), Summer Mile (G2), Derrinstown Derby Trial (G2) and Al Fahidi Fort (G2).
with Mr. Prospector line mares, and he might be particularly interesting with Machiavellian, who could be found through stallions such as Medician, Street Cry and Vettori. Twenty-two Intense Focus foals were sold at auction last year, averaging £20,111.
Impressive as that race-record is, it is Archipenko’s pedigree that really catches the eye as his dam Bound – also grand-dam of US champion older horse Blame – is a stakes winning three-parts sister to Sadler’s Wells and Nureyev. Given that Kingmambo is out of a Nureyev mare, it is going to be intriguing to see how adding further strains of the Sadler’s Wells, Fairy King, Tate Gallery family works here. Eight Archipenko foals sold last year for an average of of £15,813.
Hitting the century
More Than Ready joins the elite sires’ 100 club of stakes winners However, he is not just a two-year-old sire as his century includes many older horses.He has also sired stakes winners from 1,000m to 2,400m and they include Derby, Oaks and Breeder’s Cup winners. Australia has been responsible for 44 of More Than Ready’s individual stakes winners, including More Joyous, as well as those Golden Slippers winners Sebring and Phelan Ready. His standout runner in Australia has been champion mare More Joyous, who has a tally of eight Group 1 wins. There is the promise of more to come this spring. The stallion will stand this spring at Vinery at Scone at a fee of $121,000.
More Than Ready: hit the ground running as a young stallion and is now one of the best around
hey may have jumped the gun prematurely in America, but now it’s official: Vinery Stud can celebrate a century of individual stakes winners for champion sire More Than Ready. The son of Southern Halo reached the milestone when Maybe So, who is out of the Grand Slam mare Wish On, won the $100,000 Mountaineer Juvenile Stakes in West Virginia. Vinery’s US arm believed More Than Ready had compiled 100 stakes winners in July, but unfortunately had mistakenly included some non-black-type events. More Than Ready left no doubt he was over the century as he sired his 100th and 101st individual stakes winners on the same weekend. The undefeated two-year-old colt Maybe So became the 100th and he was followed by another juvenile stakes winner in Promise Me More.
More Than Ready is the fourth youngest sire in history to join the exclusive 100 club whose members include stallions such as Danehill, Sadler’s Wells, Mr Prospector, Northern Dancer, Danzig, Sunday Silence and Red Ransom. More Than Ready has twice been crowned Australia’s leading sire of two-year-olds, an honour he also achieved in the US in 2010 after siring the winners of both divisions of the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (Pluck and More Than Real). Described by champion trainer Gai Waterhouse as “the best sire since Star Kingdom”, More Than Ready has left an indelible imprint on the world’s richest twoyear-old race, the Golden Slipper. Apart from siring the winners in 2008 (Sebring) and 2009 (Phelan Ready), More Than Ready has also sired the placed horses More Strawberries (2010), Elite Falls (2011) and Samaready (2012). In 2012, he was responsible for five of the 16 runners.
Big Brown, whose first US crop are two-year-olds of this year, has got his first stakes winner on the board. Brown Almighty, one of four early winners from Big Brown’s first crop, won the Sunny Halo Stakes on turf at Louisiana Downs in August. The stallion, a son of Boundary and winner of the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, has not shuttled to Australia for this year’s covering season after a cut to a hind leg became infected. He stands at Three Chimneys in the US and in 2012 was available at an advertised fee of $35,000. His first year fee was $65,000.
South African sale merger talks Bloodstock South Africa and Cape Thoroughbred Sales have had an exploratory meeting to discuss amalgamation of the two companies. The two organisations run the biggest thoroughbred sales in South Africa and have agreed the need to get together to “put our houses in order ”. They have agreed on the need to present a unified strategy so to attract international customers as well as a requirement to save running costs.
Patinack Farm dispersal due Black Caviar’s at Magic Millions October Sale breeder buys into Magic Millions has announced it will host an unreserved reduction sale of both racing and breeding stock on behalf of the Patinack Farm operation. Patinack Farm has decided to offer a selection of around 350 two-year-olds, racehorse and broodmares in conjunction with the Magic Millions October Horse in Training Sale. “Magic Millions is pleased to have been chosen to conduct this important sale,” said Magic Millions managing director Vin Cox. “Patinack Farm has built up an impressive line up across all levels of the industry and their upcoming reduction sale will be giving buyers a unique opportunity. “Two of the farms young sires – Casino Prince and Husson – recently completed
the 2011/12 season as the two leading first-season sires in the country – a remarkable achievement.” Patinack Farm chief executive officer Peter Beer said the racehorse owner and breeder’s decision was a difficult, but necessary choice. “Patinack Farm operation is now one of the biggest in the world, with a very strong broodmare band,” he said. “We have reached a point where we need to reduce our numbers and we regret losing some of our best stock, but a decision had to be made.” “All horses lotted will be offered, subject to veterinary reasons. And all lots will be offered without reserve – the market will set their values.” It was reported in the Sydney Morning Herald in August that in June, Tinkler
tried to raise $200million by selling his entire racing and breeding empire, which includes stud farms and private training centres, as well as more than 1,000 racehorses, broodmares and stallions. The holding was reported to have been offered to Sheikh Fahad al-Thani as a whole and was turned down. The article claims that Tinker also asked for a cash advance from Magic Millions director Gerry Harvey. “Any deal or business we do is a personal matter between him and me. I wouldn’t speak about that publicly,” said Harvey to reporters. The newspaper also reported that Tinkler’s business interests have suffered a number of recent setbacks.
Summerhill champion South African breeder Summerhill Stud was crowned South Africa’s champion breeder for the eighth time in succession at the Equus Awards held in August, while Maine Chance Farms won both the Exceptional International Achievement Award and the Breeder Of The Year Award. Highlands Farms Stud led the way in the number of individual Group 1 winners bred during the past season, while both Klawervlei Stud and Varsfontein Stud bred more than one Group 1 winner each. Summerhill Stud’s runners earned stakes of R13,260,953 (£999,764) from 2,086 starts. Maine Chance won the Breeder Of The Year Award for the best quality performance, judged on a combination of average earnings per runner and number of black-type wins. The farm’s four-year-old Atosrseas produced the best international performance
of any South African-bred, winning the Group 1 Krisflyer International Sprint for the Singapore-based trainer Patrick Shaw. Maine Chance also bred the Glen Kotzentrained Victory Moon filly Princess Victoria, who won two Group 1 and two Group 2 races and was crowned Equus champion threeyear-old filly. The two-year-old filly Straight Set, who won a Group 2 and was runner-up in three Group 1 races, was another black-type star for Maine Chance. Highlands bred three individual Group 1 winners, the Brett Crawford-trained Dynasty colt Jackson, who won the Grade 1 Cape Derby and Grade 1 Daily News, the Mike de Kock-trained Equus champion two-year-old colt Soft Falling Rain (National Assembly) and the Sean Tarry-trained two-year-old gelding The Hangman (Jallad).
Gilgai Farm, which is owned by Black Caviar’s breeder Rick Jamieson, has purchased an interest in the Vinery-based and former English National Stud stallion Myboycharlie. The son of Danetime was one of the most profitable first-season sires at the 2012 Australian yearling sales where his stock sold for up to $170,000, including eight that sold for $100,000 or more. Gilgai spokesman and bloodstock agent Dermot Farrington said: “Gilgai is delighted to be able to secure a part of Myboycharlie. I watched him race in Ireland and France and he was top-class and very good-looking to boot. “The syndicate that that owns Myboycharlie, SF Bloodstock along with Vinery Stud have supported the stallion with very good mares from the start and they should be well rewarded on the track. “Gilgai will send some of its very best mares to the stallion, who must be one of the best value horses at stud in Australia.” The first Australian crop of Myboycharlie has just turned two and will race this season for a number of leading stables. Gai Waterhouse has three by the sire in her stable. “Between Star Thoroughbreds and my team we purchased three progeny of Myboycharlie at the yearling sales in 2012,” said Waterhouse. “Each of them look like making smart two-year-olds as they are natural athletes with very willing attitudes. I look forward to securing more of his progeny for my stable next year.” Myboycharlie stood for two seasons at The National Stud at a fee of £5,000 before moving to Haras Du Mezeray for the 2012 season. His first crop are European yearlings of this year and he has been represented at most of the early sales. His fee at Vinery for this year’s southern hemisphere covering season is $8,800 having stood at $10,000 for his first southern hemisphere season.
mare of the month
Mare of the month
FTER A DISAPPOINTING campaign through 2012 – in her last three starts she has only beaten two horses home – Margot Did has been sold as a broodmare prospect to a “Coolmore associate”. At the time of writing it appears that the Group 1 winner of 2011 has run her last race. If judging the filly on her form pages alone, she was an obvious choice for the Irish concern to bring into its broodmare fold – female Group 1 sprinters are rare and precious commodities – but there is also a certain pedigree depth to her profile to back up her racecourse performances, despite the fact that the €16,000 she achieved as a 2009 yearling and the £10,000 she made as a 2010 breezer you would think that there is not much in the family way for her. And, indeed, a cursory glance at her cataloguepage pedigree would reinforce that view. She is a daughter of Exceed And Excel, which was not a valuemaking positive when Margot Did was offered at auction – the Danehill stallion’s average had fallen from 51,000gns in 2007 to 29,000gns in 2009 before rising a little 34,000gns the following year. Life has since changed for him and after Excelebration’s and Margot Did’s own successful 2011, demand for his stock and his resulting average pinged back up to 69,000gns last autumn. Margot Did’s dam Special Dancer (Shareef Dancer) was the winner of three races, and proved her consistency, soundness and resoluteness with 16 placed performances. Those efforts, however, were achieved in Italy away from the mainstream of
Margot Did (Exceed And Excel – Special Dancer (Shareef Dancer))
European racing and did little to enhance her progeny’s value in a significant manner. Furthermore, when Margot Did was offered at Tattersalls, Special Dancer had not looked to be developing into a special broodmare at all, least of all the future dam of a Group 1 sprinter. By 2011, she had produced five foals of racing age, of which four had run. Two of those had crossed the winning post in front – Special Reggae in three claimers in France over 1m4f to 1m7f, and Ja One, who won one race over 2m on the all-weather. Despite both being by stallions with notable speed influences, both horses appeared to need a distance of ground in order to register successes. It was not surprising then, on first dam basis alone, that Margot Did was not selected to be sold at the best Irish yearling sales. Caherass Stud had to offer her at the October Open Yearling Sale and Michael Halford was able to pick her up for just that €16,000. Her second dam, who is from the Aga Khan’s “C” family, does offer a little more encouragement that the pedigree is capable of achieving Group-class efforts, though it would have been expected to have been more over middle-distances than sprints. Special Dancer’s Irishbased half-brother Cajarian (Shahrastani) won the 1m2f Meld Stakes (G3), the 7f Leopardstown Stakes (G3) for two-year-olds and the Ballysax Stakes (L), while Floral Dynamite, a close relation to Margot Did being by Exceed And Excel’s own sire Danehill, was shipped to Hong Kong where he produced Group 1-placed form in the 1m2f Hong Kong Cup and the Centenary Vase. Special Dancer’s full brother Dancer And Son produced one

instance of Listed placed form when second in the 1m4f Grand Prix de Clairefontaine, while Caradak, out of Special Dancer’s full sister Caraiyma, was the one who proved that this is a family that could mix it at Group 1 level and at distances less than a 1m2f. In 2006, he won the 7f Prix de la Fôret from Linngari and the Celebration Mile (G2) from Killybegs. Interestingly, he was another to prove the family’s affinity with the Danzig line – he was by Desert Style, a son of Green Desert. Margot Did’s third dam Callianire is the first on the
catalogue page to reveal European Group 1 form in the Prix Saint Alary, but if you believe that more distant genes in a pedigree still wield an influence on performance, then two, both which fail to make it onto the catalogue pedigree page, may have had their part to play in giving Margot Did her ability and some of the pedigree rationale backing up Coolmore’s purchase. If you follow Margot Did’s pedigree through the bottom line to the turn of the 19th century, then the Aga Khan’s influence gives way to the immense influence of a certain breeder named Marcel Boussac and one

If you follow Margot Did’s pedigree back through the bottom line to the turn of the 19th century, then the Aga Khan’s influence gives way to the immense influence of a certain breeder named Marcel Boussac
he was first mated to Irish Lad, the stallion in residenceat Gazon. He had won the Saratoga Special at two, the Brooklyn Handicap and the Metropolitan Handicap at four. The resulting foal born in 1910 was named Banshee, and is a direct ancestor of Margot Did. Banshee gave her mother immediate Classic success with victory in the Poule d’Essai des Pouliches. Upon her retirement, Banshee joined her dam at Haras du Gazon and was mated to Duryea’s Epsom Derby winner Durbar and produced two fillies – Durban and Heldifann – born in 1918 and 1921. By this point, Boussac had made his fortune in the textile industry and was in the process
of the most important foundation matrons of the 20th century. Born in 1905, Frizette (Irish Lad), was bred by James R. Keene’s Castleton Stud, Lexington. She was no star on the track and was eventually claimed by Heman B. Duryea, who unhappy about the state of the US racing industry (some things never change), shipped her to Haras du Gazon in France.
of building up his own stud, Haras de Fresnay-le-Buffard, not far from Haras du Gazon. On Duryea’s death Boussac reached an agreement with Madame Duryea to purchase the entire Haras du Gazon 1919 yearling crop, a group of horses that included the top class racemare and producer Durban, and for the purposes of our own story, Heldifann, a daughter of Durbar. That filly had tremendous speed and won three 5f races at two, including the Prix du Couvert in which she beat Sir Gallahad. On retirement from racing, she was installed in the broodmare paddocks at Fresnay-le-Buffard and produced Djezima in 1933. Djezima was a multiple winner at two and, like many of the mares in her family, became an exceptional broodmare producng the dam of the champion French two-year-old colt Priam, the multiple stakes winner and good sire Djeddah and, importantly Tourzima, the next to trace along the bottom line to Margot Did. Tourzima revealed Boussac’s delight at inbreeding his horses: Tourzima was by Tourbillon, who was out of Durban. This made Tourzima inbred 2x2 to the sisters Durban and Heldifann.
Tourzima won once at two, but was a flighty filly and was soon retired. At stud, her leading runner was the Pharis filly Corejada, winner of the Poule d’Essai des Pouliches and the Irish Oaks and the dam of Apollonia, winner of the Prix Yacowlef, Prix Morny, Grand Critérium, Prix de la Grotte, Poule d’Essai Pouliches and Prix de Diane. Apollonia’s daughter, the 1962 foal Passionata, produced Callinaire, which brings us right back to the 2011 Tattersalls cataolgue page for Margot Did. But the pedigree also produces another gem and in a
superb piece of family crossing, Darshaan appears as broodmare sire of Margot Did’s grand-dam. Bred by the Aga Khan, he was out of Delsy, a fourth generation daughter of Tourzima. He was a half-brother to the superb racemare and subsequent five-time Group 1-producing broodmare Darara and the European champion Dalara, herself dam of Group 1 winner Daliapour. With such a strong female line to boast of in her extended family, it is perhaps no surprise then that Coolmore ensured that Margot Did was quickly snapped up to join its broodmare band.
