KODI BEAR “Kodi Bear was a pleasure to train and showed a lot of class right from the beginning. He was an exceptional winner of the Sovereign Stakes and confirmed that form when winning the Celebration Mile at Goodwood in tremendous style. His temperament and appetite for racing was first class.”

“Kodi Bear is an impressive individual and appears to have passed that onto his stock. They are

good walking athletic types

and I look forward to training some of his progeny next year.” Clive Cox, Trainer

Clive Cox, Trainer

BRIGHT START FOR BEAR

“Kodi Bear is the highest rated son of Champion Sire Kodiac standing at stud. He is a lovely big dark bay horse, very correct and athletic with a great walk. We are delighted to see him stamping his stock with his looks, athleticism and real easy way of going.”

“He’s the absolute image of his father. He’d been very popular and all the right people were on him. He’s a lovely foal” said Awbegs’s Paddy Fleming. His price (€66,000) represented a handsome return on the €10,000 Kodi Bear fee - which he stood at in his debut season Racing Post 20.11.18

Under orders The first test for 2017’s new stallions

EW BEGINNING, new starts – it is what Flat trainers and owners love; finding that yearling or two-year-old who offers that extra hint of ability, allowing even the smallest of dreams to emerge. New stallions give buyers the opportunity to find an undiscovered seam of gold – hunt out that exciting new sire who gets sound, good-looking stock, who try and want to win races. And it can be at a value price – finding that gem before others are aware can offer a commercial edge. Nearly 40 stallions retired to stud for 2017, listed in this Fact Book are 34 of them at a fee of £/€4,000 or more, with Shalaa commanding the highest stud fee of €27,500. The most popular sire of sires in 2017 was the record-breaking juvenile stallion Kodiac. He had four new stallion sons retire to stud in 2017, and all have yearlings on the sales roster this autumn: Adaay, Kodi Bear, Coulsty and Prince Of Lir. At the opposing end of the distance scale are two new sons of Monsun – Protectionist, the globe-trotting Melbourne Cup winner who stands at Gestüt Rottgen and with New Bay is Timeform’s joint highest-rated on 128, and Vadamos, who stands at Tally-Ho Stud, also the home of Kodiac. Vadamos, out of the Peintre Celebre mare Celebre Vadala, did not require an extreme distance to show his best – he was a dual Group 1 winner over a mile and he opens up all manner of options for the buyer. In total, 14 of this new batch of sires were winners at Group or Grade 1

level, with the highest money earner being Harzand. The son of Sea The Stars picked up over £1.5m when winning the Derby at Epsom and the Irish Derby at The Curragh and he was named the champion European three-year-old of the year. Just behind him on earnings was the Juddmonte Farms-bred New Bay (Dubawi), his big pay day coming in the Prix du Jockey-Club (G1), and The Gurkha. The son of Galileo won the Poule d’Essai des Poulains (G1) and the valuable Qatar-sponsored Sussex Stakes (G1) in the shortest of careers. After Protectionist and New Bay, The Gurkha, Dariyan, Exosphere, Fascinating Rock, Harzand, Twilight Son, Vadamos, Estidhkaar and Belardo all achieved peak Timeform ratings of 125 or more. Lanwades Stud stands the first son of champion US Turf sire Kitten’s Joy to retire to stud in the UK. After the exploits of Roaring Lion in 2018, his progeny should be of interest to the yearling buyers. The most represented stallions at the early season yearling sales (as we went to press the catalogues are out for both parts of the Arqana August Sale, GoffsUK Premier, BBAG, Ascot and Tattersalls Ireland September) are Mehmas, Twilight Son, Shalaa, Adaay and Estidhkaar. We have listed their lots on their respective pages in our Fact Book and we will be updating online as the catalogues are published. Our online publication will also include video links of the stallions as well as audio from some of the studs; make sure you check it out to gain a really fully immersive interactive experience of each stallion.

OISIN CLOSE perches on a makeshift seat by the edge of the pond, soft summer sun sparkling on its surface, behind her the Malvern Hills stand patiently waiting for Turner to fill in his unfinished sketch with their heather hued contours. A stream meanders through the farm, forming a natural division in the land, through the paddocks where the yearlings, sons and daughters of Chapel Stud’s stallions Hellvelyn, Coach House and Pearl Secret, lazily graze, their eating interrupted by attention from the farrier. It is a bucolic English scene of a kind that inspired Turner and continues to spark the creative imagination of artists. It has sparked Close’s imagination in a myriad of ways since she first saw the former dairy farm and purchased it last year, beginning an operation of transformation from neglected and overgrown land to pastoral perfection. “I can picture how it will look when it is finished, but that will take a few years,” she says, before detailing in words the images in her mind’s eye of the various improvements she has planned; it is easy to see her vision taking shape around her. The view of the pond, its island which is home to ducks, moorhens and their various offspring, is the scene the stallions will be treated to as they relax in their paddocks, on a break from their busy days. Since she moved to the Worcestershire farm last September, formerly based Bucklands Farm and Stud, a hop over the West Country border from Gloucestershire, it has already become unrecognisable from its former self. The large cattle sheds have been transformed – one to an indoor, all-weather pen, perfect for turning out the newly born foals in safety and protected from the unpredictable elements. The other is bright, airy and spacious barn to where each mare was moved after safely foaling from their former accommodation. In a large box at the back, close to an entrance, lives Pearl Secret, content in his surroundings. Close explains the reasoning behind Pearl Secret’s living arrangements. “I thought Pearl Secret would be lonely if I put him down here on his own, he came over to the farm first because he has been covering the most mares, but then it wouldn’t be fair to put Coach House in there as well because then they have to compete,” she explains. “It is practical stuff like that, if you get that right then you will have happy boys. You don’t throw them in each other’s faces, but when they are together in there, there won’t be any girls so there won’t be any competition.” Knowing her “boys” and establishing ground rules for them are cornerstones of Close’s approach to horses; it is a mindset that was first informed by childhood riding lessons near her Wokingham home, where her family moved from Cambridge after her father received his PhD. Later, qualified as a riding instructor but not wanting to teach, she attended Hartpury

College which led, through a friend and former Cambridge colleague of her father who was working at the Gluck Research Institute in Lexington, to an internship with Taylor Made. Initially daunted by the prospect of a year in Kentucky, Close found herself receiving an education equivalent to an Oxbridge degree. She learnt by “doing”, caring for some of the bloodstock world’s most storied mares. “It was one of those things,” she reflects on her internship, “you’re kind of party to it being organised, but also you’re not because somebody else is planning it! “Suddenly you’re deposited at the airport, and I didn’t want to go for a year to the US on my own.

“I was 18 and I was at the airport not wanting to go, but I sucked it up and went and I loved it. The internship was actually 18 months so I stayed for the whole thing and it was a great experience. “Working in Kentucky at 18 was amazing and I worked with some of the best, the BEST,” she emphasises, “horses in the world. I prepped User Friendly and took her through the ring when she was sold as a mare out of training in foal to Mr. Prospector; I took Mariah’s Storm to visit Storm Cat as a maiden mare, and that foal turned out to be Giant’s Causeway... just the most beautiful mares,” she reports, still in awe of the opportunities that she had.

“I was in the Spring House division, which was for barren and maiden mares, and I had one big beautiful barn on the top of the hill with big stables, but also this converted tobacco barn down at the bottom of the hill with just ten boxes in it. Every one of those boxes was full of some of the most beautiful mares such as Sky Beauty and La Voyageuse.” Sky Beauty was a champion, Triple Tiara heroine and is third dam of Violence, while and La Voyageuse was a three-time Canadian champion, and a daughter of champion Fanfreluche. The impetuosity of youth led her to turn down the offer of a permanent job with the

Taylors and she returned to Britain, becoming first the stallion person and then stud groom at Tweenhills Farm and Stud. Gender equality and the racing industry are not always the happiest of bedfellows, but Close took the challenges in her stride. “I always felt I had something else to prove being the only girl,” she recalls. “The very first parade I went to was at the National Stud and we went up the day before because we had to do a walk through. “I remember pulling up to the yard, I parked and went in, the stallions had come up already and I was stood outside one of the boxes talking, and somebody said to me ‘When is David’s

stallion man coming?’ “I replied, ‘You’re looking at him’. You could just see their faces – it took them by surprise,” an opinion laced with understatement Arguments about gender and strength are made irrelevant by the power of the horse, who would easily defeat any human in a contest of strength. Physicality is not the route to a happy and successful relationship between stallion and human, or any horse for that matter, and the Chapel Stud stallions are handled just like any other horse, but with their different needs constantly in Close’s mind. Her affection for her boys is obvious in how she speaks of them, the care she takes of them, the belief she has in them. For many of the 12 years she worked for David Redvers at Tweenhills, she also operated her own farm Bucklands Stud, but when the two jobs became too much and she made the decision to go out on her own, she didn’t want to be without stallions. Redvers, and Paul Thorman, sent her Hellvellyn, then came Coach House, and now there is Pearl Secret from Salcey Forest Stud. “Content” is an excellent description for the young stallion whose first yearlings go through the sales ring this autumn. The handsome chestnut happily welcomes the visitors to his box and calmly steps out into the yard, followed by Close’s four Staffordshire terriers. The ten-year-old doesn’t turn a hair at the antics of the dogs rushing around, chasing and performing those loud introductions which dogs are wont to make. Instead he poses with the

unruffled demeanour of a seasoned professional, his chestnut coat, with its distinctive splatter of white on the underside of his belly, gleaming like polished rose gold in the sunlight. A talented sprinter, he raced for six seasons for Qatar Racing winning seven races, including the Group 2 Temple Stakes and the Listed Beverley Bullet Stakes. He was also a runningon third in the Group 1 King’s Stand Stakes to Sole Power in 2013 and fourth by a fast-finishing length to Goldream in the same race two years later. He also filled the same position behind that horse in that season’s Prix de l’Abbaye. A son of Compton Place out of a Listedwinning sprinter and from the extended female family Dutch Art, his lineage makes him a rarity

Close has a number of “nice” yearlings to sell from Chapel Stud at auction this autumn, but she admits she finds the bloodstock market place “frustrating”

at stud these days in an industry now dominated by the bloodlines of the Darley Arabian. “He was a very good horse himself, he did well at last autumn’s sales, while the other really lovely thing about him is he is one of the few stallions from the Indian Ridge Byerley Turk line, which makes him really precious,” says Close. “There are not many of them now who would be commercial, but we’ve one here. “People want a horse who has raced over a number of years, they want longevity, they want a good race record, they want something ‘sprinty’ and I stand two of those. “I stand Hellvelyn, who raced until he was six, was a Royal Ascot winner, 5-6f horse, and can produce a black-type horse from very average mares. Can I get people to use him? No,” she states, her frustration at the vagaries of current fashions at the sales evident.

H

ER FEAR for Pearl Secret is he will be subject to the whims of a yearling market place that values certain names above all others, battered by the juggernaut covering books of those sires, and then trapped in the difficult lessthan-fashionable sales circuit. However, that first venture into the sale ring by Pearl Secret’s progeny last autumn was hugely positive and bodes well. His top-priced foals made 42,000gns and €40,000, and all bar one of the 21 foals received in the sale ring last autumn changed hands, despite the tricky market experienced at last autumn’s sales, there is hope he can escape that fate. The average price of his foals £16,853 is slightly more than four times his covering fee. More importantly for Pearl Secret’s future, they were snapped up by some shrew judges. David Redvers bought three of his first crop, while the astute pinhookers Tally-Ho Stud, Jamie Railton, Liam Norris and Guy O’Callaghan were also on the list of investors.

“Pearl Secret slipped through the net a little bit and he has as good a chance as any, he was a good racehorse and he is good-looking “People have taken notice of his stock, they are athletic, nice-looking and, off the back of his good foal sales, he has covered his biggest book so far,” says his proud handler. “As well as that, the right people bought his foals, plenty of really good judges have bought them, so we are really excited to see how they turn out, which sales they go to, how they look, how they go down with buyers. “He slipped through the net a little bit and he has as good a chance as any, he was a good racehorse and he is good-looking – if the right people buy them as yearlings and they go to the right trainer, we will see where that brings us.” Close adds: “Pearl Secret has what I call a ‘British pedigree’, he ran till he was six, was a Group 2 winner, and Group 1-placed, what’s not to like about that?” However, Close is frustrated by the market place and the fashionistas of the sale ring. “People say they want those things, but when it comes to the sales, they don’t buy progeny from stallions who have that record! I cannot tell you how much it frustrates me. “People say the same thing over and over again, I just sit there thinking why? It

really winds me up,” she shakes her head in bewilderment. For the first time in her career, Close is putting unsold fillies into training; it was a step she was reluctant to take, not least because of the expense involved, but she decided it was necessary to give her stallions the best chance and to help give her mares the opportunity to develop their pedigrees. With a foot in both camps, she can clearly see why breeders choose particular stallions for their mares, but it is much more difficult to find logic in sales fashion. “I can understand why the stallions don’t get the mares they deserve because, unless people are going to buy them at the sales, the breeders won’t use them. “I have five nice Hellvelyn yearlings, but I’ll struggle to get them into a good sale, and now it is all about being in the right sales. “I’ll probably get one into the Silver Sale and I might get one into Book 3, after that I will probably struggle for a spot in a ‘commercial’ sale. “If you’re not in the right covering book, you don’t get the slots. “I don’t want them sent abroad because I have the mares here in the barns. “I can’t afford to send them to Ireland where prize-money is better, I don’t have that money. It is frustrating. “This is what needs to be fixed, it’s making British racing viable and affordable. I don’t think there is one single solution, that’s the problem, but prize-money has to be addressed.” The handsome Pearl Secret looks on as we discuss such matters, and while come the autumn his commercial future might be in the hands of others, under the guidance, care and passion of Close, the son of Compton Secret has a loyal supporter who does her utmost for him. He has made a good start, that fragile market place views him well, let’s hope Pearl Secret can shine out fom the shadow of the Malvern Hills.

A chance for all to succeed

Stallions from all levels can become future stars, writes Jocelyn de Moubray

L

OOKING AT THESE STATISTICS, which chart the changes in stud fees of stallions who retired in Europe during the five seasons from 2008 to 2012, a few obvious conclusions leap off the page. Primarily that few things are as difficult to predict in the breeding world than which stallions will prove to be successful, and second

the fee at which a horse stands during its first season is a far from accurate guide to its future prospects. Of the 13 sires who commanded a fee of €20,000 or higher for their first year at stud during this period only Sea The Stars and Mastercraftsman stood for a higher fee in 2019. Future star stallions such as Siyouni, Dark Angel, Lope De Vega, Le Havre and Dandy Man

all started off at €15,000 or less. The Haras de Bouquetot’s Shalaa was the most expensive sire to retire to stud in 2017 and his foals could not have been better received at the sales in 2018, but this by no means makes it inevitable that in 2025 he will still be the most expensive of this large group of new stallions. If using the years of 2008 to 2012 (tables opposite) it is easy to believe that one at least

Sea The Stars: has been on an upward trajectory throughout his years at stud

one of the group who retired in 2017 (table page 22) at a lower fee will prove a high-class sire and will be standing at €20,000 or more by 2025. Alternatively, if looking from another angle, there is no reason at all why the future should be a repeat of the recent past. Stallions are all in competition for the

support of the better mares and more successful breeders, but both are limited in supply. There are, for example, only so many top class mares with the potential to produce middle-distance performers and while Galileo and Dubawi are alive and fertile they are going to attract a significant proportion of them.

But the day these two stars are not around there will suddenly be strong competition for the mares they would still be covering if there were still active. The available pool of mares is always changing, too, as the success of a sire or a sire line increases the number of mares carrying these genes, creating an opportunity for a different sire line which works well with them. Like the star stallion the opportunity for an outcross is not permanent and once the place is filled it is no longer available for the next candidate who comes along. For stallions, timing is all important – to be a success a stallion needs to be in the right place at the right time, but, unfortunately, the criteria are only clear long after the decisions about which sire to use or invest in has passed. Looking at the ten sires whose fees increased most significantly we can draw more conclusions, but again these are only relevant to the past and not necessarily to what will happen over the next five years. During this period there was an opening for a series of French-based sires to make a mark and Le Havre, Siyouni, Wootton Bassett and Kendargent all emerged from relative obscurity to international fame. All four are outcrosses by sires who were not considered to be sires of sires, and may have their chance in France where the emphasis is not overwhelmingly on success in two-year-old races. This is still true today, but the French stallion market has attracted numerous new entrants and is far more competitive now. The only English-based sire in this group Showcasing made his name with two-year-olds, as did the Irish sires Dark Angel, Lope De Vega, Zoffany and Dandy Man. As long as the smaller middle-distance market is dominated by a few proven expensive sires such as Galileo, Dubawi, Sea The Stars it will be very difficult for newcomers to join them coming from nowhere. In Britain and Ireland most of the market and opportunities are for horses who tend to pass on speed and precocity. Soldier Hollow is the only one of the ten from the Sadler’s Wells line, but he is in Germany which is a different market and there it is nearly a problem that his best progeny tend to be precocious and able to compete at Group level over a mile and 1m2f.

Feeding the yearling in ridden work

THE TOPIC OF NUTRITION in the role of feeding for yearling sales prep has been more frequently discussed than the feeding of yearlings post sales. A common practise for sales preparation is to feed increasing amounts to youngsters in order that they can gain condition and bulk in time for their entrance into the sales ring, and so secure the highest possible price. This contrasts with the goal of minimising excess body weight without sacrificing energy stores for horses performing high intensity exercise such as racing (Geor et al 2013). Providing nutrition to support optimal health and assisting in a horse achieving its athletic potential from the sales ring up to full racing work presents several challenges along the way.

Post yearling sale

Behaviour can present as the first challenge. On a sales prep ration the yearlings have been on an increasing plane of nutrition with rations traditionally high in starch and sugar. Horses on higher starch diets have been shown to have greater handling reactivity (Bulmer et al 2015) and increased startle reactions (Redondo et al 2009). Such behaviours can increase the risk of injury to both horses and handlers. By lowering the total starch and the amount of starch provided in each meal the frequency and severity of spooking can be reduced. Reducing the starch intake would also reduce the energy or calories provided, this could result in both body condition and weight loss. However, the energy or calorie levels in the diet can be maintained by providing an alternative that is higher in fat and nutritionally richer fibres. The use of antibiotics on racing yards is reportedly proportionally higher in the yearling

After yearlings have been through an intensive sale prep, trainers need to feed according to work levels, but without risking a loss of condition Dodson and Horrell and two-year-old groups than the older horses. The exact causes for this have not been well studied, but it is permissive to assume that a number of factors contribute to this. These factors include the increased likelihood that these individual horses have recently moved yards, recent exposure to higher numbers of horses from outside their herd immunity, such as at the sales and in transport vehicles, increasing their risk factors for contracting a respiratory infection for example. To further compound this they are also more likely to be experiencing scenarios that have been shown to reduce the response of the immune system. These include stress-induced post sales by the change of yard, in daily routine and the process of breaking and early training. The negative impact of stress on the immune system’s ability to respond to an infectious challenge is well documented at the time of weaning. It is unlikely that this stress factor wouldn’t also have similar implications at other life stages.

Post-sale a yearling is likely to be experiencing digestive challenges due to typically higher starch sales prep ration, increased stress, possible antibiotics and an almost certainly quick dietary change. All of these have been shown to result in disturbances in the micro-flora, or bacterial populations in the horse’s hindgut. These disturbances can have a multitude of effects, including increased bacterial lactic acid production in the large intestines, reduced digestibility of dietary fibres, reduced immune cell counts (IgG), reduced appetite, and even increased aggression. There are means of nutritionally reducing the potential impact of these immune and digestive challenges post sales. Providing a diet that is lower in starch and higher in fats and good quality fibres has been shown to reduce the speed and distance of the flight response in young horses. As well as decreasing the likelihood of the horse moving away from an unfamiliar person (Nicol et al 2005), which is a very likely scenario at this stage. This alteration in behaviour may be indicative to lower stress levels. Prebiotics specifically Oligosaccharides have been shown to have significant advantageous effects on the immune system, both invitro and in the horse (Vendrig et al 2013). Although the exact mechanism for this is not well understood it is believed to be due to the supporting effect on the beneficial bacteria in the hindgut (Elweger et al 2004). Live yeast has also been shown to support the gut by lowering lactic acid production and even increase the immune response to an influenza vaccine in horses (Hendrika et al 2018).

We ask much of the young racehorse: the colt or filly foal, within a year, has to go from life with Mum to dealing with sales prep, an intensive few days on the sales ground and then to life as a racehorse and in ridden exercise, building up relatively quickly to full work in a racing yard

equine nutrition

Feeding the young racehorse is a delicate balance between ensuring that development continues after sales prep, but there is not too much stress on young bones

prevention or control of injuries, particularly skeletal injuries. During this phase the young skeleton is still maturing and is now also adapting to the new pressures of an increasing workload. Nutrition plays a significant role in the maintenance and development of bone integrity. There are a large number of nutrients involved in bone health, and too many to mention here. The first to come to mind is the mineral calcium, and yet where the horse is concerned not all calcium is equal. Marine Algal calcium is more bioavailable when compared with rock-based calcium. Calcified seaweed supplementation has been shown to increase bone turnover, whilst not altering the bone mass. This may aid in the repairing of damaged bone and preventing injury (Nielsin et al 2010). Silica, a normal component in grass, may also enhance bone turnover and facilitate bone repair (Nielson et al 1993). During this phase it is not uncommon for a cheaper none Beta NOPS-approved conditioning cube or mix to be chosen. However, these are less likely to significantly contain any of the aforementioned supplements and do potentially pose a NOPS cross-contamination risk to the full-racing diets also in the feed room. In addition, many of these diets are nutritionally balanced for the mature horse and may not have the vitamins and minerals in the correct proportions for a still maturing skeleton. There are alternative compound feeds that have been formulated for this stage where young horses are starting their racing careers.

During this phase the young skeleton is still maturing and is now also adapting to the new pressures of an increasing workload Full work

As workload increases so too will the nutritional requirements, these can normally be met by specifically tailored racing compound feeds. Moving up to these rations is advisably done in a gradual transition from the early work feed. Higher starch rations are traditionally favoured by Flat trainers, as the energy provisions are more suited to the sprinter type. However, as previously mentioned, higher starch rations can pose behavioural and digestive issues. Thankfully there are now some of these compound feeds that included digestive and immune support supplements to compensate. Lower starch and higher protein rations

intern have been traditionally favoured by the NH trainers, as this energy provision more readily supports stamina. However, as some of these diets are now also including prebiotics and other digestive support supplements the horse is more efficiently able to obtain additional energy from their dietary fibre. This resulting in higher energy intake and reduces the need to change to higher starch racing rations. Many of these mentioned nutrients can be added to a diet as separate supplements or by selecting a compound feed with these already included. This latter option often provides savings in time and costs, and possibly improving the accuracy and consistency in their consumption. Many of these racing feeds also include the addition of extra B vitamins and palatability herbs to encourage those with poor appetites, which approximately 19 per cent of racehorses will fall into this category (Kaya-Karasu et al 2018). The phase of sales to racing is a physically and nutritionally challenging one and one that requires specific consideration at each stage. Thankfully there are now range of compound feeds available on the market tailored for each of these steps, helping to ensure each horse reaches it full athletic potential.

Lissa Oliver chats with Luke Barry of Manister House Stud about breeding mares to young sires, what to look for when pinhooking foals by first-season sires, the young stallions with first yearlings selling this autumn, and his draft of yearlings by first-season sires www.internationalthoroughbred.net 31

S THE YEARLING SALES commence, all eyes will be on the young pretenders who seek to steal the crowns of the established sires. Whether at the ringside or trackside, we are always playing a guessing game, yet there are some clues to be had when it comes to assessing the risk or potential of a stallion with his first crop of yearlings on offer. We spoke with Luke Barry of Manister House Stud about what he looks for in new sires. “Both racecourse performance and pedigree count somewhat, but we would have seen many of the foals at the sales, as well as the foals we have on the ground ourselves, and that helps to form an opinion of the type of individual a stallion is throwing,” says Barry. “We all want the most attractive individual with the right profile, and so I look for a good-looking stallion who fits the profile. “For me, Awtaad stamped his stock really well, and also those by Twilight Son really stood out last year. “The Gurkha also had nice foals, although sadly we don’t have any with us, but I like the idea of him a lot. We were underbidders on one of his and we have a good foal we bred by him. “Twilight Son got really good physicals and we have two of his yearlings heading to Doncaster, both are smashing types, a colt and a filly, and we bred a super foal by him as well. “Shalaa is one of those with a very sexy outlook and, the way Kingman is going, everyone’s going to pull out a Shalaa. “We don’t have any, but I can imagine they’ll be popular. That’s what you need to get the doors opened at the sales, you want the right profile.” Luke is happy with those he has taken a chance on and has some very nice yearlings to consign. “We have one very nice Vadamos colt we pinhooked and a homebred filly by the same sire going to Fairyhouse. Pride Of Dubai is exciting, Coolmore didn’t bring him back up this year from the southern-hemisphere, but I have an outstanding

“We are all looking for the next Dark Angel or Kodiac, who started off at reasonable money, accessible to the smaller breeder and pinhookers – that’s the puzzle we have to work out each year! filly by him on the farm; she’s one of my better yearling fillies. “I don’t own her myself, but she’s an outstanding individual and I hope she’ll go well, she ticks a lot of boxes for me. “And one to match her is a filly by The Last Lion going to the Orby. We love the Choisir line and she is particularly attractive with a highly-rated dam and attractive page. Hopefully she’ll be popular. “We also have a nice New Bay colt to offer at Fairyhouse – he was a proper racehorse. “Another young sire we bred to was Mehmas. He has the profile of what is so popular – a sharp two-year-old who showed plenty of class and toughness. “And he comes from a great sireline that’s proven

as a sire of sires, with Dark Angel being the blaring example. “We are all looking for the next Dark Angel or Kodiac, who started off at reasonable money, accessible to the smaller breeder and pinhookers. That’s a puzzle we have to work out each year! The yearling purchasers are all thinking the same. “Certain trainers and owners have had great luck ‘launching’ these young sires. Now they’ll find that the ones they really want by the same sire are out of price range! “We were lucky enough to have bred to Kingman in his first season, producing what looks like a smart and exciting horse in Fox Chairman, who was second at Royal Ascot in the Hampton Court Stakes (G3). He went onto win a Listed race at Newbury. “Kingman had it all going to stud, but it shows if you can get it right, choose the right stallions, you’ll improve your broodmares, breed a nice one and hopefully get rewarded in the sales ring at some point. “No Nay Never backs up this argument, too, and we have bred to him every year, until he got a little out of reach. We have a lovely homebred filly to sell by him this year at Doncaster.” While there may be obvious contenders among the list of sires with first-crop yearlings, Barry also likes to look for an outsider, who could prove one of the surprise packages next year. “You can never discount the Kodiac and Invincible Spirit influence and their sons will always be popular. Prince Of Lir and Territories fit that mould and got nice foals.” Fox Chairman: the Listed-winning Group 3 placed three-year-old son of this year’s leading second-season sire Kingman was bred by Barry

Adaay

T

HE FIRST SON of Kodiac to stand in Britain was Adaay, who retired to Whitsbury Manor. As a racehorse he had precocity – so much so that he was a 240,000gns breeze-up buy. After winning his debut over 5f in May, he followed up in a novice event over the same trip in June. A strong fancy for the Group 2 Coventry Stakes (eighth), he then signed off his juvenile season placing third in the Listed Rose Bowl Stakes. At three, he improved plenty on his two-year-old form when third on his seasonal debut to Limato in the Group 3 Pavilion Stakes. He then hit a rich vein of form gaining his first stakes win when beating subsequent Australian Group-1 winning sprinter Jungle Cat in the Listed Carnarvon Stakes, and then got the better of Limato in the Group 2 Sandy Lane Stakes. He added another Group 2 win to his tally when upped to 7f for the Hungerford Stakes, in doing so earning an official rating of 115. At four he matched this level of form, albeit without winning, including when beaten a head in the Group 3 Criterion Stakes and when third in the Group 2 Park Stakes. His sire Kodiac has become one of the most potent sources of two-year-old winners and holds the record for the number of individual two-year-old winners in a year with 63. He specialises in putting early speed into his progeny, and as a racehorse Adaay was typical of his stock. Adaay’s female line also boasts plenty of pace and he is a halfbrother to prolific sprinter stakes performer Mullionmileanhour. His dam Lady Lucia is by Royal Applause and is a half-sister to Creative Mind, who earned her black-type over an extended 6f. Adaay had some good results in the sales ring last autumn with his first foals posting an average of 26,447gns and a median of 16,850gns, strong results off an opening fee of £7,000. His sales highlight so far was the 180,000gns given for the half-brother to the Group 2 Queen Mary Stakes winner Heartache. His first crop consists of 93 foals, with 106 mares covered in 2018, 61 of whom were winners. AP Adaay foal sales : descending price order (gns) Horse

Ajaya

W

ITH POOR BRITISH PRIZE-MONEY levels owners need to find out the fate of their equine investment as soon as possible – yearlings who can develop quickly at two are becoming ever more popular. Ajaya was an out-and-out two-year-old. He broke his maiden impressively over an extended 5f at the beginning of July having been beaten less than 3l in the Group 2 Norfolk Stakes, a run that came less than three weeks after he made his racing debut. He was stepped back up into Group company for the Group 2 Prix Robert Papin, and just a head separated him and the winner Gutaifan over the extended 5f at Maison-Laffitte.

Ajaya got that deserved Group win in the Group 2 Gimcrack Stakes, a race won in the past by the likes Rock Of Gibraltar, Showcasing and Muhaarar. The form was to work out well as he got the better of subsequent multiple Group 1-winning miler Ribchester by over a length and was rated 114 for that performance. Ajaya was trained by William Haggas and is by Invincible Spirit, who is emerging as a leading sire of sires. Ajaya’s dam Nessina is a half-sister to the dam of Cityscape and Bated Breath, both Group 1 winners who have already made an impact at stud. He also is from the family of Xaar and El Gran Senor, both of whom were crowned champion two-year-old and three-year-olds.

Awtaad

T

HE “MILER STALLION” is at an advantage to his sprinter and stayer counterparts upon retiring to stud. Such stallions can often have a more diverse book in terms of distance as they can receive both staying and fast mares. Not only was Awtaad a top miler, but he was also a Classic winner, and this enabled him to get off to stud on the best available footing. He covered a full book of 120 mares in his first year from over 400 applications. With such numbers, Derrinstown was able to select a boutique list of mares; a quarter of them were themselves black-type performers, including the dam of Taghrooda. His foals were in demand a tlast autumn’s sales, and he was the standout sire among the first-crop foal sires achieving an average of 53,987gns and a median of over 48,000gns for his 29 foals sold. Given that these were bred off a €15,000 fee, his foals averaged 4.5 times his fee with his median not far behind. Well-handled by trainer Kevin Prendergast, Awtaad flew under the radar at two winning a Leopardstown maiden at the back-end. Rapid progression in the spring saw him win the Listed Tetrarch Stakes with authority over Blue De Vega, a performance which meant he was able to take his chance in the Irish 2,000 Guineas. A fluid traveller, he was the last to come off the bridle before he drew clear of the field which included Galileo Gold, winner of the English equivalent. That performance earned Awtaad a Timeform mark of 120. Awtaad then lost nothing in defeat when putting in an excellent effort in the Group 1 St James’s Palace Stakes, before picking up the Group 2 Boomerang Stakes on Champions weekend, beating the Group 1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf winner Hit It A Bomb. Awtaad is a son of Cape Cross, who has already proven himself to be a sire of sires, and is out of a stakes-performing daughter of Shamardal who has already produced three stakes performers from four runners.

It is also the family of this year’s Epsom Derby runner-up Madhmoon. A Classic-winning miler with a pedigree and excellent sales results, Awtaad’s prospects look positive. AP

The Last Lion Belardo

Photos by Marc Ruhl

STRONG PEDIGREE is often a crucial asset for a stallion to succeed at stud, and it was one of the legendary ‘Bull’ Hancock’s five criteria for choosing a stallion. Belardo certainly ticks this box. His sire Lope De Vega was a champion three-year-old in France, winning the Group 1 Poule d’Essai des Poulains and the Group 1 Prix du Jockey-Club. He has emerged to become an elite stallion and he got his first Classic winner this spring with the Irish 2,000 Guineas hero Phoenix Of Spain. Lope De Vega boasts a nine per cent stakes winners rate, which includes 27 Group winners, nine of those winning at the highest level. He is an outstanding success story – having commenced covering duties in 2011 at €15,000, he now stands at €80,000. It is hoped his son will follow in his footsteps; he has started out at the same fee as his sire. Belardo’s dam Danaskaya was Ireland’s 2002 champion juvenile filly after finishing runner-up to Russian Rhythm in the Group 2 Lowther Stakes before signing off her two-year-old career when beaten 2l in third to Airwave in the Group 1 Cheveley Park Stakes. She possessed plenty of speed, is a half-sister to the stakes-winning two-year-old Modeeroch and is from the family of Group 1 Prix de l’Abbaye winner Kistena and the successful speed sire Mujadil. A winner on debut at two, Belardo won his first stakes race in the Listed Washington Singer Stakes when showing an impressive turn of foot. This form was further improved when he lined up in the stallion-making Group 1 Dewhurst Stakes – he again showing his ability to quicken and won with more in hand than the official 2l winning distance. That performance earned him a rating of 119 and saw him crowned the European champion juvenile. His three-year-old season was crowned on his final start, when after making strong late headway in the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth II Stakes, he found only Solow too good. He was kept in training at four and won the Listed Doncaster Mile Stakes with ease ahead of success in the Group 1 Lockinge Stakes when he beat Euro Charline, Endless Drama and Limato. He reproduced that top-class form on his final start in the Group 1 Queen Anne Stakes behind second to the star US racemare Tepin. His first crop of 90 foals (a fifth of his mares covered in that book were black-type performers) made up to €77,000, averaging nearly 27,000gns for his 2018 lots sold. He covered 97 mares in 2018.

Bobby’s Kitten

T

HE INTRODUCTION OF different, influential bloodlines is crucial for the thoroughbred. The gene pool is narrowing, and this could have all kinds of ramifications for the breed. Bobby’s Kitten is a Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint winner free of Danehill blood, making him a suitable outcross for the numerous Danehill-line sprinting mares in Europe. He is a son of Kitten’s Joy, who has become a dominant American Turf sire; he is a multiple Turf champion who was also crowned leading North American sire in 2013. That is a notable achievement given that the vast amount of his progeny race on Turf, and some of his top runners, such as Hawkbill and Roaring Lion, plied their trade in Europe. Kitten’s Joy is a son of El Prado, who was the leading sire in North America in 2002, despite being an Irish Turf performer by Sadler’s Wells. For that, he needs to be revered.

A stakes winner on his third start at two in the 8f Grade 3 Pilgrim Stakes, Bobby’s Kitten signed off his juvenile campaign with an admirable effort in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf (G1) when third behind Outstrip. At three, after finishing a good third in the Group 1 Woodbine Mile behind older horses, he showed versatility to drop back in trip to win the 6f Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint at Santa Anita beating subsequent sire sensation No Nay Never. He reappeared as a four-year-old for a repeat bid at Woodbine in a Grade 2 and then ran down the field twice at Keeneland before joining Dermot Weld from Chad Brown. He had just one start for the master of Rosewell House, winning the 6f Listed Cork Stakes by a full 8l. Lanwades Stud offered Europe something unique when standing Bobby’s Kitten – he was the first son of Kitten’s Joy to stand in Europe and he started off his stallion career at an initial fee of £12,500.

The Last Bow Creek Lion

U

NFORTUNATELY IT IS a frequently a lack of soundness and a lack of durability, rather than ability, that stops a racehorse from reaching his full potential. That did not apply to Bow Creek as not only did he show off all his talent, but he had physical toughness and versatility, too. Initially trained by Mark Johnston, he ran seven times at two, winning twice. With his debut made in June, he was early to come to hand, yet he still showed improvement from two to three when he was twice successful at Group 2 level. Those wins came on his last two starts that season in the Celebration Mile at Goodwood and the Boomerang Mile at Leopardstown, beating Mustajeeb. Those efforts through the year saw his BHA rating climb by 17lb to 115.

At four, Bow Creek raced in Australia where he won the Group 2 Peter Young Stakes and finished second in the Crystal Mile Stakes (G2). A son of Shamardal, the sire of successful stallion Lope De Vega and top sprinter Blue Point, Bow Creek is out of the talented and tough mare Beneventa. Trained by John Dunlop, she managed 15 starts in just two seasons of racing and, like her son, was similarly progressive. At three, she garnered three stakes wins, including in the Group 3 Dahlia Stakes earning a rating of 110. Bow Creek’s third dam has the admirable achievement of producing 11 winners. Retired to Haras du Logis at a fee of €4,000, Bow Creek’s first crop is made up of 22 foals.

Buratino

Photos by Marc Ruhl

T

WO-YEAR-OLD RACES at Royal Ascot have become the goal for an ever-increasing group of yearling buyers; speed and precocity are in high demand. Finding a horse with the precocity to show their ability at that early stage is difficult so, with that in mind, extra credit must be given to Buratino – he has the commendable profile of running five times even before Royal Ascot, where he won the Group 2 Coventry Stakes. A winner on debut in March of his juvenile year, Buratino progressed to finish runner-up in the Listed National Stakes. His first piece of outstanding form came when powering clear by 6l in the Listed Woodcote Stakes at Epsom. He arrived at Royal Ascot having learned his job on the racecourse, rather than at home, typical of one trained by Mark Johnston. With a gap of just ten days between Epsom and Royal Ascot, he quickened clear to beat Air Force Blue by 2l at the Royal meeting. The tables were turned at The Curragh in the Group 1 Phoenix Stakes when he was third to Air Force Blue, but Buratino soon bounced back to his Royal Ascot form when a narrow runner-up to Shalaa in t he Group 1 Middle Park Stakes, a performance which earned him

an official rating of 117. At three, he ran respectably in the Group 2 Temple Stakes after failing to stay the mile in the Group 1 2,000 Guineas. Retired to Kildangan Stud, Buratino (with Bow Creek) was one of the 2017 Darley Club stallions – if breeders paid an upfront fee in year one, they could use him again in years two and three at no extra cost. If the breeder used him through all three years, they earnt themselves a loyalty bonus in the form of a lifetime breeding right to his services. Buratino’s sire Exceed And Excel has become a potent source of stakes-winning two-year-olds and he hails from the family of the influential Danehill Dancer. Exceed And Excel’s sons at stud have been well capable of producing early two-year-old winners. They include Bungle Inthejungle, who produced 27 winners in his first crop, and this year’s new first-season stallion Sidestep, who sired Group 1 Golden Slipper victor Kiamichi. Buratino’s first crop of 81 foals realised up to €35,000, and he covered 122 mares in 2018. Buratino offers yearling purchasers the chance to buy into early speed. AP

The Last LionThought Charming

Photos by Amy Lanigan

T

HE GROUP 1 MIDDLE PARK STAKES has long been regarded as a stallion-making race, and since the turn of the millennium winners have included Oasis Dream, Dark Angel, Dutch Art and Johannesburg (sire of Scat Daddy). Of the six to contest the race in 2014, five have found a place

at stud. His winning performance in the Middle Park earned Charming Thought, a son of Oasis Dream, a rating of 116. He found resolutely under pressure to edge out Ivawood by a nose, with young sires Muhaarar and Cappella Sansevero, who already have runners, further back. Injury had prevented Charming Thought from making it to the racecourse until August of his juvenile year, however his progress in such a short space of time, from winning his maiden to winning the Middle Park just six weeks later, proves that he could have shown his ability sooner. Charming Thought is a standout specimen as evidenced by a yearling sale price of 625,000gns. His pedigree is of high quality, too – his

104-rated dam Annabelle’s Charm won a Listed race over a mile, in addition to placing at Group level. A daughter of Indian Ridge, she won her maiden over 1m2f in line with her female pedigree – she is from the family of dual Group 1 winner Ballingarry, who was crowned a top-rated three-year-old stayer in Ireland. Ballingarry is out of Charming Thought’s third dam Flamenco Wave, herself a Group 1-winning juvenile and a winner of the Moyglare Stud Stakes. She is also the dam of the Group 1 St James’s Palace Stakes winner Starborough and the Group 1 Racing Post Trophy victor Aristotle, as well as being grand-dam of the revered St Nicholas Abbey. By top-class sire Oasis Dream, Charming Thought showed speed at two resembling more of his sire’s traits than his dam’s. Had he raced at three, he could well have been a top-class miler given his pedigree and the manner in which he won the Middle Park.

Coulsty

Y

EARLING BUYERS WANT SPEED SIRES, and Coulsty, a son of Kodiac, should be able to meet that demand. A debut winner in May at two over 5f, he earned his first black-type when third of five in a 7f Listed event at Deauville. He managed two stakes wins at three, including in the Group 3 Prix de Meautry Lucien Barriere and the Listed King Charles II Stakes. At four, he added another Listed win to his tally in the King Richard III Stakes (a race in which he went close a year later) prior to running an even better race when runner-up in the Group 2 Hungerford Stakes to Adaay. A peak rating of 111 was complemented with consistency. He won every year from the ages of two to five and managed 26 starts, placing on

10 occasions. Part of Coulsty’s appeal at stud is that he is a son of Kodiac, the king of two-year-old winners who rose to fame from humble beginnings. Coulsty is out of a winning daughter of In The Wings, hailing from a family of sprinters which includes Group winners Lugana Beach and The Tatling, the latter of whom was one of the most popular horses in training. Retired to Rathasker Stud at a fee of €5,000, his first foals made up to €15,000 from a crop of 42. He transferred to Norman Court Stud in England for 2019 where he stood for a fee of £4,000, and returns to Rathasker for 2020. A well-made type typical of his sire, he ought to produce early runners

The Last Lion Dariyan

SCROLL DOWN TO READ FULL TEXT

M

ULTIPLE GROUP WINNER Dariyan is bred in the purple: he is by champion sire Shamardal (Giant’s Causeway) and is the first foal out of the Group 1 Hong Kong Vase winner Daryakana (Selkirk). He is also from the extended family of the three-year-old champions Darjina and Almanzor. Dariyan made his debut in the famous green and red Aga Khan colours for trainer Alain de Royer Dupre as a three-year-old. He was beaten just a short neck before going on to win his next two starts. He stepped up to Group company to finish fourth in the Group 3 Prix du Lys before winning the Group 2 Prix Eugene Adam and then finish second to New Bay in the Group 2 Prix Guillaume d’Ornano. On a trip to Hong Kong he just failed to emulate his dam when third in the Group 1 Hong Kong Vase behind Highland Reel and Flintshire. At four, the son of Shamardal continued on his travels making his first appearance in a Group 2 at Meydan where he was beaten by Profitable before a run in the Group 1 Sheema Classicc (sixth). His return to France saw him win the Group 1 Prix Ganay and finish second in the Prix d’Ispahan (G1). He was retired at four, and started his stud career at a fee of €8,000, a price which has been maintained. His sire Shamardal was a European champion at two and champion miler at three when he won both the Group 1 Prix du Jockey-Club and Group 1 Poule d’Essai des Poulains. To date he has sired 21 Group 1 winners, including Lope De Vega, who completed the same Poule d’Essai des Poulains and Prix du Jockey-Club double as his sire, as well as the multiple Hong Kong Group 1 winner Pakistan Star and Group 1 King’s Stand winner Blue Point. Shamardal works well with mares by Sadler’s Wells, Gone West and Singspiel. Daryakana, who is out of Group 1 Prix de Diane winner Daryaba (Night Shift), has produced two other winners to date – the Listed winner Darabad (Dansili) and Devamani (Dubawi). She also has an unraced four-year-old filly Darousha (Redoute’s Choice), a three-year-old filly and two-year-old filly Darzaviyna (Golden Horn). SAG

ESTIDHKAAR 9yo Dark Angel-Danetime Out (Danetime) Tara Stud (IRE) 2017: €5,000 | 2018: €5,000 | 2019: €5,000

INDEX

R

ICHARD HANNON excels with his juveniles, and the Wiltshire-based trainer not only produced Estidhkaar to Group 2 success, but also made his half-brother Toormore into a European champion two-year-old. A 4l win in July’s Group 2 Superlative Stakes over 7f was backed up by Estidhkaar on his next start in the Group 2 Champagne Stakes at Doncaster. There he got the better of War Envoy with subsequent Group 1 Dewhurst Stakes winner Belardo behind. He won with such authority that he was sent off the favourite in the Dewhurst Stakes (G1), but he picked up an injury in the race and in the circumstances did really well to finish a 5l fourth to Belardo. His best performance on ratings, however, came as a three-year-old when beaten by just a neck in the Group 3 Greenham Stakes by the subsequent champion sprinter Muhaarar, with Ivawood over 4l behind the pair. He gained another Listed win at four, and retired with a peak official rating of 116 having gained a two-year-old rating of 114. A £200,000 yearling, Estidhkaar has the pedigree to complement his performances. Not only is he a half-sibling to Toormore, his full-brother realised 500,000gns at the yearling sales last year. Estidhkaar’s sire Dark Angel has become a tremendous success at stud and continues to prosper, while he is out of a Danetime mare, a sire noted for his sprinters and two-year-old winners. Bred off a fee of €5,000, which has been unchanged since retiring to stud, Estidhkaar has been well supported and produced 102 foals in his first crop. They sold for up to €100,000, resulting in an average of 13,520gns and a median of 5,899gns. He covered 81 mares in 2018. AP

HIGH-CLASS sprinter in Australia, Exosphere broke his maiden as a two-year-old before winning a Group 2 at Warwick Farm the same year. Trained by John O’Shea, Exosphere then completed a stakes race hat-trick at three with success in the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes between two wins at Group 2 level. He went on to finish fourth in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes and the Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning. He was retired to stud as a three-year-old after a final outing in the TJ Smith Stakes (G1). His sire Lonhro – a champion three-year-old, champion miler, Horse of the Year and a champion sire – already has successful sons at stud, including Denman and Pierro. He is also the sire of the Group 1 winners Impending and Kementari, who have both recently begun their stallion careers, as well as Gronkowski,

who was second in the Group 1 Belmont Stakes and Dubai World Cup (G1). Lonhro has produced another stakes horse from the same crop and cross as Exosphere – the Australian Group 2 winner and Group 1-placed Heatherly, who is also out of a Danzero mare. Lonhro clearly works well with Danzig line mares as he has also had success with mares by Redoute’s Choice, a cross which has resulted in seven stakes race winners, including Kementari and Generalife, and Danehill mares, which produced the Group 2 July Stakes winner Cardsharp and the Australian Group 2 winner Pinwheel. His dam Altitude has also produced a two-time winner in Elevates (New Approach), while her a 2016 colt by Lonhro, named Altimeter, is in training in Australia. She has had another colt by the same stallion in 2018. SAG

Fascinating Rock SCROLL DOWN TO READ FULL TEXT

F

ASCINATING ROCK boasts strong credentials having won the prestigious Group 1 Champion Stakes, earned himself a Timeform rating of 127 and is the only son of Fastnet Rock at stud in Europe. Fastnet Rock has become a keystone sire in the southern-hemisphere – the 2004/05 Australian champion sprinter and a dual champion sire, he is the sire of 36 individual Group 1 winners. He has also made an impact in the northern-hemisphere getting the Group 1 Diamond Jubillee Stakes winner Merchant Navy, in addition to the Classic-winning filly Qualify, the 2015 Group 1 Epsom Oaks winner. His dam was a dual winner over a mile and is from the family of Group 1-placed miler Gothenburg and the Group 1 Phoenix Stakes runner-up Amadeus Mozart. A resolute horse out of the top drawer, Fascinating Rock was expertly programmed by the master of Rosewell House and was never risked on ground too quick at four and five. In the spring of his three-year-old season, Fascinating Rock put himself into the Classic picture with a win in the Group 3 Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial. He lined up in the Epsom Derby, but he had to overcome a wide draw and nothing went to plan through the race. At four, he realised his potential finishing runner-up in the Group 1 Tattersalls Gold Cup to Al Kazeem and beating Postponed. He signed off that season with a career-best performance in the Group 1 Qipco Champion Stakes, and beat a classy field which included subsequent Group 1 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe winner Found and Jack Hobbs on good to soft. That performance saw Fascinating Rock crowned the world’s joint top-rated older horse of 2015. He carried that level of form forward when kept in training as a five-year-old, winning the Group 1 Tattersalls Gold Cup beating Found. He was always seen to best effect with ease in the ground. Fascinating Rock’s foals were well received by the market, with two fillies realising €185,000 and €110,00. This helped his foal average reach around three times his opening fee of €10,000, which was trimmed to €7,500 for 2019. He has a first crop of 61 live foals and covered 64 mares in 2018. AP

The Last Lion Goken

G

OKEN became the first son of Kendargent (Kendor) to stand at stud in Europe when he retired to stud in 2017. Owned and bred by Guy Pariente, who also stands Kendargent at his Haras de Colleville near Deauville, Goken is out of the Indian Rocket mare Gooseley Chope, who won over 6f. Trained by Henri-Alex Pantall, Goken showed precocity as a two-year-old winning the Group 3 Prix du Bois before finishing third in the Group 2 Criterium de Maisons-Laffitte. His impressive two-year-old season resulted in three wins and four places from eight starts. As a three-year-old he won the Prix Texanita (G3) at Maisons-Laffitte before crossing the Channel to be trained by Kevin Ryan for whom he won a Listed race in Lingfield on his first start. In June 2016, Goken beat some of the best sprinters in Europe when third to Profitable in the Group 1 King’s Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot. A Group winner as a two and three-year-old, Goken proved himself to be fast, tough and precocious. His sire Kendargent has been something of a revelation in the French

stallion market and is an excellent source of sprinters and precocious two-year-olds. He has been most successful to date with mares by Indian Rocket (Indian Ridge), who is the damsire of Goken. This cross has also resulted in multiple stakes performer Morando, who won the Group 3 St. Simon Stakes, and Kendam, who was second in the Group 3 Chartwell Fillies’ Stakes. Kendargent also does well with mares by Montjeu, the cross has produced the Group 2 and Group 3 winner Restiadargent, who was third to Black Caviar in the Group 1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot, as well as three other winners. Gooseley Chope has produced another winner in Gokena (Kendargent), who is a full-sister to Goken. She also has a three-year-old named Mubarmaj (Oasis Dream), who has finished third twice in France, a two-year-old colt Hurricane Cloud (Frankel) in training with Pascal Bary and a Kingman yearling colt.

Harzand

F

EDERICO Tesio said that “the thoroughbred exists because its selection has depended, not on experts, technicians, or zoologists, but on a piece of wood: the winning post of the Epsom Derby.” Derby winner Harzand proved himself the best of his generation, and was crowned champion three-year-old in Europe. His win at Epsom showed a vast amount of improvement in a short space of time – less than two months on from his 16l maiden romp he won the Group 2 Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial before going on to success at Epsom. Harzand found admirably for pressure, with the tightly packed Epsom field soon strung out at the finish. In the Irish Derby he showed similar resolution when holding off Idaho, and he entered the Irish Champion Stakes on a rating of 123. It was a vintage renewal the field including Highland Reel, Minding, Found, New Bay and Almanzor. It was a testament to Harzand’s Derby performances that he was

sent off favourite, but he ran below par after being struck into behind by Almanzor. Harzand was bred to be a Derby winner – he is by one of the greats in the Derby and Arc winner Sea The Stars, who has sired 12 Group 1 winners and has an 11 per cent stakes winners-to-runners strike-rate. Hazariya, Harzand’s dam, was a Group 3 winner over 7f and she has produced four stakes performers. They include Harasiya, a 7f Group-winning juvenile who placed in the Moyglare Stud Stakes (G1). He is from the family of dual Group 1-winning juvenile Hittite Glory, who won the Flying Childers Stakes (G2) and Middle Park Stakes (G1). Harzand’s first crop of 64 foals sold for up to €60,000, averaging 18,695gns with a median of 20,000gns. His first book included some blue-blooded mares from his breeder the Aga Khan, including the dams of Zarkava and Rosanara. He covered 30 mares in 2018, 40 per cent of whom were themselves stakes performers. The winner of the world’s most influential horserace could be a potent outcross for Sadler’s Wells-line mares. AP

The Last Lion Isfahan SCROLL DOWN TO READ FULL TEXT

I

SFAHAN’s short career culminated with victory in the 2016 Group 1 Deutsches Derby, defeating none other than Dschingis Secret at Hamburg. The son of Lord Of England ran three times at two and won the mile Group 3 Preis der Winterfavoriten, Germany’s juvenile championship race, on his second start. At three he kicked off his Classic year by winning the 1m2f Group 3 Bavarian Classic, but disappointed next time when he could only manage sixth in the Group 2 Derby Italiano. Back in Germany, he returned to form to claim a thrilling renewal of the Deutsches Derby, bravely repelling the challenges of Savoir Vivre and Dschingis Secret by a neck and a head. Bred by Renstall Wöhler and trained by Andreas Wöhler for owners Darius Racing, the chestnut is a half-brother to the Group 3 Wurttemburg Trophy winner Incantor, a son of Areion, and is a three-parts brother to Il Divo, who finished second in the Group 3 Bavarian Classic. The siblings are out of Independent Miss, an unraced daughter of Polar Falcon, whose son Pivotal is proving such a remarkably successful broodmare sire. Independent Miss is herself a grand-daughter of Germany’s champion three-year-old filly of 1990 Indica, whose five Group victories included success in the Group 1 Aral-Pokal. She was also second in the Group 1 Europa Preis, and as a broodmare produced the Group 3 Furstenberg-Rennen winner Indicator. Isfahan is one of three Classic winners so far by the 1m2f Group 1 Grosser Dallmayr Preis Bayerisches Zuchtrennen winner Lord Of England. The leading German first-season sire of 2010, Lord Of England is the sire of ten individual Group winners, including the Group 1 Preis der Diana winner Feodora and the Group 1 performers Olorda and Lord Fandango. His dam is a half-sister to Group 1 Prix Jacques Le Marois winner Lirung and Lagunas, a champion sire and winner of the Group 1 Deutsches Derby. It is the female line of Lomitas, another champion sire. AC

Kodi Bear

K

ODIAC, who broke the record for the number of individual two-year-old winners in a season, has gone from strength to strength. He has amassed 52 stakes winners in total, 24 of those at Group level. It has been an outstanding achievement. He has been such a success story that his yearlings are now out of reach for many buyers so the best alternative is to look a yearlings by one of his sons, such as the Group 2-winning miler Kodi Bear. He had good a early start as a juvenile in the hands of trainer Clive Cox, and was beaten just over 2l in the Group 2 Norfolk Stakes on only his second start, arguably unlucky not to have finished closer. His first stakes victory followed a month later in the Listed Winkfield

Stakes over 7f. He was then sput away until the Group 1 Dewhurst Stakes in October and finished a creditable runner-up to Belardo, earning a Timeform rating of 110. 
He missed the 2,000 Guineas, but he reappeared with a winning performance in the Listed Midsummer Stakes. A facile win in a Group 3 at Salisbury followed before he put in a classy effort to win the Group 2 Celebration Mile, a performance which earned him an official rating of 118. Kodi Bear is from the family of multiple Group 1-winning filly Esoterique and the Group 2 Mill Reef Stakes winner Cool Creek. His first crop of 81 made up to €66,000, which resulted in an average of 12,930gns and a median of 8,000gns. He covered 106 mares in 2018. AP

The LastLion Lucky Lion

T

HE MEHL MULHENS-RENNENAN (German 2,000 Guineas) winner Lucky Lion is bred in the purple – he is by the late dual Derby hero High Chaparral (Sadler’s Wells) and out of the German 1,000 Guineas winner Lips Arrow (Big Shuffle). Lucky Lion climbed a rung of the ladder with each start – after winning on his debut he went on to score at Group 3 level before following up with that Guineas success at Cologne. He finished second to Sea The Moon in the Deutsches Derby (G1), but got his head in front in a Grou-p 1 next time when taking the Group 1 Grosser Dallmayr-Preis at Munich ahead of Noble Mission. He ended his three-year-old campaign with a seventh place in the Grosser Preis von Baden (G1). Lucky Lion failed to scale quite the same heights at four and five, but finished placed at Group 3 level in Germany twice, as well as a close fourth on his second attempt in the Group 1 Grosser Dallmayr-Preis. His sire High Chaparral was an excellent racehorse with an exceptional pedigree who died in 2014 as a 15-year-old. During his time at stud he shuttled to Windsor Park in New Zealand Photos by Marc Ruhl

and produced many Group winners from those crops, including multiple Group 1-winning racehorses So You Think and Dundeel, and 29 Group winners in the northern-hemisphere So far, the ten-time Group 1 winner So You Think is by far the most successful son of High Chaparral at stud having produced five Group 1 winners himself. Other sons of High Chaparral on stud duties, include the young sires Free Eagle and Toronado in Europe, Redwood in New Zealand and Monaco Consul in Australia. He is also the sire of 2017 Group 1 Melbourne Cup winner Rekindling, the dual Grade 1 Northern Dancer Turf winner Wigmore Hall and dual Group 1 winner Contibutor. As a son of Sadler’s Wells perhaps it is no surprise that High Chaparral works well with Danehill and his sons Danehill Dancer and Dansili. Lips Arrow has also produced three-time winner Lucky Lips (Mamool) and has an unraced three-year-old named Lips Archer (Australia) and a two-year-old filly by Gleneagles called Lips Eagle, who was beaten a head on debut.

Markaz

D

ARK ANGEL’S meteoric rise through the stallion ranks has meant that his sons have become attractive stallion prospects. A classy juvenile who only raced at two, Dark Angel has shown himself able to both upgrade his mares and produce horses superior to himself. Markaz, a £200,000 yearling, progressed steadily throughout his two-year-old season his best effort coming when runner-up in the Group 3 Somerville Tattersall Stakes over 7f. At three, he achieved a Group 3 win in the Criterion Stakes and put in a fine effort behind Limato in the Group 2 Park Stakes, both races coming over 7f. For all that he was effective over the trip, he appeared to possess more speed than required for 7f. He was dropped back to 6f for the Group 3 Chipchase Stakes, Markaz posted a winning performance worthy of a 121 Timeform rating. Although a notch below the very best, he consistently ran to his official

mark and was placed in 11 of his 19 starts. He comes from a talented, durable family – Markaz’s full-sister is the gifted Mecca’s Angel, best known for winning two renewals of the Group 1 Nunthorpe Stakes. Their dam Folga was a winner of six races over 5f to 6f and achieved black-type in the Listed Lansdown Fillies’ Stakes at Bath. Folga’s dam Desert Dawn produced ten winners and was a talented two-year-old, placing in the Group 2 Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot before winning a Group 3 in France. At a fee of €6,000, he produced 77 foals in his first crop, who made a top price of 60,000gns, posted an average of 16,000gns and a median of 10,000gns. His fee has remained at €6,000 in 2019, and he covered 81 mares last year. A likeable sprinter by a fantastic sire and boasting a tremendous full sibling, his progeny will suit the commercial yearling purchaser. AP

The Last Lion Martinborough

M

ARTINBOROUGH’S sire needs no introduction – he is a son of the brilliant Japanese-based legendary sire Deep Impact. His influence is spreading across the globe from Japan, where he is a behemoth of the breeding industry and sire of almost 40 individual Group 1 winners, including the European stars Study Of Man, Saxon Warrior and Beauty Parlour. Standing at Haras de Grandcamp, ten-year-old Martinborough was the first son of Deep Impact to retire to stud directly to France, and he stands alongside Dabirsim, who has shown the potential for success of the Sunday Silence line in Europe. The ten-year-old Martinborough was bred by Northern Farm and raced in the colours of Kazuma Yoshida, winning two Group 3 contests over 1m2f on Turf – the Chunichi Shinbum Hai and the Niigata Kinen.

He raced 28 times over three seasons, winning seven races and placed a further six times. As well as being by his imperious sire, Martinborough’s pedigree is extremely attractive – his Machiavellian half-sister Halwa Sweet is the dam of three Group 1 winners – the dual Victoria Mile heroine Verxina and the Dubai Turf and Shuka Sho winner Vivlos, both by Deep Impact, and Cheval Grand. He is a son of Heart’s Cry who won the Japan Cup and is competing in Europe’s top middle-distance races this summer. Martinborough’s year older full-brother Frere Jacques won the Group 3 Radio Nikkei Sho. Their dam Halwa Song is an unraced Nureyev half-sister to the Group 1 Prix Vermeille winner Mezzo Soprano, out of Morn Of Song. She

Their dam is the brilliant four-time Grade 1 winner and broodmare Glorious Song, a full-sister to Grade 1 winner and leading sire Devil’s Bag and to the classy stallion Saint Ballado. They are all by Halo so making Martinborough inbred 3 x 4 to the hugely influential sire. He also has four lines back to blue hen Almahmoud in his pedigree – through Halo’s dam Cosmah and her half-sister Natalma, the dam of breed-shaping sire Northern Dancer.

NEAT, WELL-DEVELOPED and strong juvenile as a racehorse Mehmas epitomised precocity. A 170,000gns breezer, he made a winning debut in May for trainer Richard Hannon before he finished runner-up in the Listed National Stakes, the first opportunity for juvenile colts to earn black-type in Britain. That effort was built upon at Royal Ascot when runner-up to Caravaggio in the Group 2 Coventry Stakes. His two Group successes came straight after Royal Ascot, winning the Group 2 July Stakes and then he got the better of Blue Point by a neck in the Richmond Stakes (G2). His final two starts came at Group 1 level, but he just found 7f beyond him when runner-up to Churchill in the National Stakes at The Curragh. He signed off with a highly creditable effort in the Middle Park Stakes behind The Last Lion and Blue Point, achieving an official rating of 115. With eight starts from May to September, and never out of the first three, Mehmas’s constitution must be admired. This gives him a likeable profile going to stud, especially with the growing demand for market precocity. He is a son of Acclamation, a sire noted for producing high-class sprinters such as Equiano and Marsha, in addition to Aclaim and last year’s Group 1 Breeders’ Cup Mile winner Expert Eye. Mehmas is bred on the same Acclamation-Machiavellian cross as leading sire Dark Angel, who also retired to stud as a juvenile. Tally-Ho Stud has already done a splendid job in giving Mehmas every chance with a first crop of 145 foals. Bred off a €12,500 fee, they realised up to 85,000gns with an average of 17,368gns for his 42 lots sold in 2018. He saw a second book of 176 mares and he covered 127 mares in 2018. AP

EW BAY’s first Group 1 performance came when runner-up to Make Believe in the Poule d’Essai des Poulains (G1) – he was arguably unlucky, having made significant late headway after being dealt a poor draw. From that initial Classic performance New Bay went on to win the Group 1 Prix du Jockey-Club for trainer André Fabre, beating the admirable subsequent globetrotter Highland Reel. Two Group 2 wins over 1m2f and 1m4f followed before he produced a career-best performance in the Prix d’Arc de Triomphe when beaten just 2l by Golden Horn. He earned a Timeform rating of 128 for that performance and had a high-class field behind him, which included Treve and subsequent Arc winner Found. He was remarkably versatile both in terms of trip and ground – he had the rare ability to be effective at the highest level from a mile to 1m4f, and won the Group 2 Prix Niel on soft, while his Arc performance came on good to firm. Kept in training at four, he won a Group 3 before running well when fourth in a star-studded Group 1 Irish Champion Stakes behind Almanzor, Found and Minding. Not only is New Bay a son of the mighty Dubawi, but he comes from an illustrious Juddmonte line – his third dam is the influential Bahamian. Her daughter Hope (Zamindar) became the dam of Oasis Dream, while her grand-daughter Zenda is dam of Kingman. Her Dancing Brave daughter Wemyss Bright is the dam of Beat Hollow, while Coraline (Sadler’s Wells) is the dam of successful stallion Martaline as well as the top stayers Coastal Path and Reefscape. New Bay’s dam Cinnamon Bay New Bay foal sales : descending price order (gns) is a stakes-winning three-parts sister to Zenda. Her Listed victory came over a mile at three, having won Price Consignor Purchaser Sale Horse over the same trip at two. is the(GB) half-sister to the b,c. exShe Glorification (Champs Elysees (GB)) (21st March 2018) 80,000 Baroda & Colbinstown Studs Hamish Macauley Tattersalls December Foal Sale 2018 Group 2 winner Group 1-placed stayer2018) Bellamy 55,000  ch,f. ex Falling Petals (IRE)and (Raven’s Pass (USA)) (14th February Ballylinch Stud, Ireland Norris/Huntingdon Tattersalls December Foal Sale 2018 Cay, ch,f ex Sowho Funnyearned (USA) (Distorted Humor (USA)) (20th March 2018) 52,000  a Partnership BBA Ireland Tattersalls December Foal Sale 2018 a Timeform rating of 118. b,c. ex Soteria (IRE) (Acclamation (GB)) (24th March 2018) 50,568  Baroda & Colbinstown Studs Powerstown Stud Tattersalls Ireland Flat Breeding Stock Sale 2018 New Bay had 76 foals in his b,f. ex Oh Sedulous (IRE) (Lawman (FR)) (14th February 2018) 50,000  Ballylinch Stud, Ireland Howson & Houldsworth BS Tattersalls December Foal Sale 2018 first crop from a fee of €20,000 b,c. ex Arbaah (USA) (Invasor (ARG)) (15th February 2018) 40,454  Baroda & Colbinstown Studs M O’Toole Goffs November Foals and covered 99 mares in 2018. ch,f. exHe Timarwa (IRE) (Daylami (IRE)) (1st April 2018) 40,000  Aston Mullins Stud Chapel Road Tattersalls December Foal Sale 2018 has also been helped by Juddmonte Farms b,c. ex Mishhar (IRE) (Authorized (IRE)) (4th May 2018) band. 37,926  Haras de l’Hotellerie Vendor Arqana December Breeding Stock Sale 2018 supporting him with their broodmare b,c. exHis Maybe Gracefoals (IRE) (Hawk April 2018) averaging 33,712  Hayley O’Connor BBA (Ireland) Goffs November Foals first soldWing for (USA)) up to(10th 80,000gns, 28,713gns for 25 with close to 30,476  ch,f. ex Arctic Passage (GER)lots (Railsold, Link (GB)) (5thhis Aprilmedian 2018) Harefield Cottage Stud, Ireland Five Star BS Goffs UK December Sale 2018 his average 25,283gns.

EARL SECRET is a flashy chestnut, and he showed high-class form from the ages of two to seven with the highlight of his career coming when winning the Group 2 Temple Stakes. That said, he arguably produced even better performances in defeat. He was often a live contender in Europe’s top sprints, and his best result came when third in the Group 1 King’s Stand Stakes to Sole Power. Pearl Secret was a model of consistency and earned a RPR of at least 110 on eight of his 26 starts, and a peak BHA rating of 115. He was described by jockey Jamie Spencer as having “electric speed”. He is bred to have that abundance of speed. Out of a 5f Listed winner and from the family of Dutch Art, he is by the top-class sprinter Compton Place who has been the sire of so many prolific sprinters over the years producing leading runners such as Deacon Blues and Borderlescott. Pearl Secret also offers breeders a chance to tap into the Indian Ridge sire line, and he is one of the last active stallions maintaining the Byerley Turk stallion line. Quite a number of his progeny have inherited his flashy appearance, and he achieved a top price of £42,000 for his first crop of 42 foals. Extraordinarily, 20 of his 21 foals offered found a new home. It was a tough market at the lower end, but Pearl Secret proved exceptionally resilient with an average of 14,359gns and a median of 11,000gns. He covered Purchaser Sale 48 mares in 2018. withDecember presence Jamie Railton A speed sire Tattersalls Foaland Sale 2018 ability, his yearlings should be attractive Tally Ho Stud Goffs November Foals to purchasers.

INDEX

A

USTRALIA’S TOP SPRINTERS who reverse shuttle to the northern-hemisphere are usually highly sought-after stallions. The country specialises in speed and precocity and the sprinters who show high-class form at two are arguably the country’s most appealing stallion prospects. Pride Of Dubai ticked that box winning two Group 1s at two — the Blue Diamond Stakes and Sires’ Produce Stakes over 5f and 7f respectively. He raced five times in his career and managed to amass prize-money over A$1.3 million. He is by the Group 1 Dubai World Cup winner Street Cry, the sire of Winx and Zenyatta, as well as the Grade 1 Kentucky Derby winner Street Sense. Pride Of Dubai’s female side of the family appeals to the European market. His pedigree is one of the hottest right now – his black-type dam is a half-sister to the Classic winner Rafha, dam of Invincible Spirit and Kodiac. Invincible Spirit needs no introduction – he is now at a fee of €120,000 having produced three champions, 55 Group winners and 111 stakes winners. Kodiac, like his three-parts brother Invincible Spirit, has become a highly sought after stallion. He, too, started at the lower end of the market but has propelled himself to a fee of €65,000 with achievements including breaking the record for the number of individual two-year-old winners. Kodiac has sired 52 stakes winners, 24 of those at Group level. Pride Of Dubai was retired to Coolmore at a fee of €15,000 and his first foals sold for up to 82,000gns. He covered 100 mares in 2018. A brilliant sprinter from a brilliant family, he ought to suit the current demands of the market. AP

Prince Of Lir

A

PRECOCIOUS SON OF KODIAC, Prince Of Lir topped the 2016 Goffs UK Breeze-Up Sale when selling for £170,000 to the Cool Silk Partnership from the Marnane family’s Bansha House Stables. He immediately repaid Peter Swann and family’s investment with victory in the Brian Yeardley Conditions Race at Beverley and followed that up with Royal Ascot glory in the Group 2 Norfolk Stakes. Half a length behind him then was the subsequent Group 1 Middle Park Stakes winner The Last Lion. Three more starts failed to yield further success and he retired to stand at Ballyhane Stud at the end of his two-year-old season. As a son of Kodiac, Prince Of Lir was popular with breeders and covered a full book of 125 mares during his first season at stud off a covering fee of €5,000. The reigning European champion and record-breaking two-year-old sire has produced over 90 stakes winners across the globe and three

individual Group 1 winners – Tiggy Wiggy, Fairyland and Best Solution. Bred by Philip and Orla Hore, Prince Of Lir was sold by Mount Eaton Stud to the Marnanes for £40,000 at the Goffs UK Premier Yearling Sale. His three-year-old half-sister Nitro Boost is in training with Willie McCreery and has finished third in the Listed Polonia Stakes at Cork and has won twice. It is a sprinting pedigree – the siblings are out of the 5f winner Esuvia, herself a half-sister to the Group 3 Champagne Sprint Stakes winner Resplendent Glory. Prince Of Lir’s second dam is Aoife, a winning half-sister to King’s Stand Stakes third Funny Valentine and to Dame Hester, who is the dam of Group 2 Goldene Pleitsche winner Donnerschlag and of Izzy Bizu, who won the Listed Prix Six Perfections in 2015. Prince Of Lir’s dam Esuvia is by Whipper, sire of last season’s Group 1 Prix d’Ispahan and Prix du Moulin hero Recoletos, and Lord Glitters, victorious in the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot this year.

The Last Lion Protectionist

I

T IS OF little surprise that Protectionist was a top-class performer over longer distances as he is a son of the formidable staying influence Monsun (Konigsstuhl) and German Broodmare of the Year of 2014 Patineuse (Peintre Celebre). A champion stayer in Europe and Australia in 2014, the highlight of Protectionist’s racing career was his success in the Group 1 Melbourne Cup that same year. The son of Monsun was also a talented precocious juvenile and made a winning debut in Germany as a two-year-old when trained by Andreas Wohler. He went on to finish second in the Group 3 Grosser Preis Herzog von Ratibor Rennen next time out. He ran twice as a three-year-old, form which resulted in a win and a third place at Listed level, however he came alive as a four-year-old when successful in Group 2s in Germany and France before his fruitful journey to Australia when he beat Red Cadeaux in the Cup. The horse stayed on in Australia for the following year, under the care of trainer Kris Lees, but that adventure proved to be unsuccessful and he was returned to Wohler as a six-year-old. Protectionist made a return to winning ways back on German soil in 2016 and won the Group 1 Grosser Preis von Berlin, as well as the Grosser Hansa Preis (G2) before retiring to stud. His sire Monsun died in 2012, but his legacy lives on as he is one of the greatest sires in German history and his descendants have continued to

light up the track long after his death. He has sired three winners of the Melbourne Cup – Protectionist, Fiorente and Almandin – and there are over 20 sons of Monsun at stud in Europe, including the German champion sire Samum, as well as Maxios and Manduro. Monsun has had a lot of success with Unfuwain mares, which resulted in Getaway, as well as mares by Dashing Blade, which produced multiple Group 1-winning filly Stacelita. SAG

Scissor Kick

F

ROM THE FAMOUS Juddmonte family of Dansili, Scissor Kick was a talented sprinter in his native Australia. He followed in the footsteps of his speedy sire Redoute’s Choice (Danehill) rather than his dam Back Pass (Quest For Fame). She won once in her career that success coming over a 1m4f as a fouryear-old. Trained in Australia by Paul Messara, Scissor Kick made a winning debut as a three-year-old in a 6f Listed handicap before winning the Group 3 Up & Coming Stakes. He finishing second in the 7f Golden Rose Stakes (G1) to Hallowed Crown and in the Stan Fox Stakes (G2) to Shooting To Win before winning the 6f Eskimo Stakes (G3). Redoute’s Choice, the star stallion of Arrowfield Stud, died in March 2019 aged 23, but he leaves behind an impressive legacy as a sire of sires with ten of his sons have already produced a Group 1 winner, including

leading Australian sires Snitzel and Not A Single Doubt. A champion first-season sire in Australia in 2004 and a champion sire in 2006, 2010 and 2014, Redoute’s Choice has been responsible for over 100 Group winners to date, including champions Lankan Rupee and Miss Finland. In Australia he has worked particularly well with Last Tycoon mares, which has resulted in the Group 1 winners Master Of Design, Bonaria and Dariana. Scissor Kick’s dam Back Pass was bred by Juddmonte and raced in Britain before selling at the Tattersall December Sales as a three-year-old for export to Australia. She is a half-sister to the joint-champion two-year-old colt Three Valleys and has produced three other winners by Redoute’s Choice – the Listed winner and Group 3-placed stallion Sharkbite as well as Mukarrar and Rebound.

The Last Lion Shalaa SCROLL DOWN TO READ FULL TEXT

A

DUAL GROUP 1-winning twoyear-old, Shalaa (Invincible Spirit) was one of the most eagerly anticipated horses of his generation to retire to stud. His sire Invincible Spirit is renowned as one of the best producers of Group 1 sprinters and milers in the world, while his dam Ghurra (War Chant) won on her two-year-old debut over 6f in Britain and went on to be Grade 3-placed in the US over a mile. The champion two-year-old colt in France and second-best colt in Europe in 2015, Shalaa won five of his six starts that year including the Group 1 Prix Morny as well as the Group 2 July Stakes and Group 2 Richmond Stakes. The Al Shaqab star colt rounded off a stellar two-year-old campaign with success in the Group.1 Middle Park Stakes after which his trainer John Gosden hailed the colt as “the fastest two-year-old I’ve trained”. A pelvis injury caused Shalaa to make a delayed reappearance as a three-year-old when he won the Group 3 Bengough Stakes in October before producing a below-par effort on his final start in the Group 1 British Champions Sprint. His sire Invincible Spirit is now 22 and there is a focus on finding an heir to his throne amongst his many sons standing at stud. The star of the Irish National Stud is already having much success as a sire of sires with proven sons such as Lawman, Shalaa sales : descending price order I Amfoal Invincible and Zebedee, as (gns) well as a younger brigade which includes Kingman, Horse Charm Spirit and Profitable. son of Green Desert works b,c. exThe Summer Collection (IRE) (Teofilo (IRE)) (11th March 2018) particularly Indian Ridge mares, b,c. ex Besotted (IRE)well (Dutchwith Art (GB)) (3rd February 2018) which has resulted in Profitable b,f. ex Full Mandate (IRE) (Acclamation (GB)) (11thand MarchSwiss 2018) Spirit, as(IRE) well as Sadler’s line mares b,f. ex Rakiza (Elnadim (USA)) (13thWells March 2018) which has produced Magna Grecia (Galileo) b,c. ex Hat (USA) (Hat Trick (JPN)) (3rd April 2018) and Charm Spirit (Montjeu). b,c. ex Last Tango (FR) (Peintre Celebre (USA)) (10th April 2018) Ghurra has produced two other winners b,c. ex La Pedrera (IRE) (Danehill Dancer (IRE)) (12th February 2018) from five runners and is herself a half-sister b,f.

Strath Burn

C

OMPAS STALLIONS, the brainchild of agent Micheál Orlandi, has gradually been increasing its number of stallions it stands since it was established in 2015. The companny has an affordable roster of stallions, which includes a son of Scat Daddy in Smooth Daddy, and Kuroshio, who made quite an impact with his first crop from limited runners. Other sires under the banner include Cappella Sansevero, who has made a pleasing start to his first crop, and the Timeform 120-rated sprinter Strath Burn. Strath Burn made an early impact on the racecourse placing twice in Group company at two when finishing a close runner-up in the Group 2 Prix Robert Papin and the Group 3 Cornwallis Stakes, both over 5f. His Group success came in the Group 3 Hackwood Stakes and he came ever so close to a winning at the top level when beaten a short-head in the

Group 1 Sprint Cup by Twilight Son. He had a classy field behind, which included subsequent stallions Belardo, Due Diligence, Adaay and Pearl Secret. He is the first son of the King’s Stand Stakes hero Equiano to stand at stud. Although his dam Irish Light won over a mile, there is plenty of speed present under his first dam as he is a half-brother to the 5f Group 1 Phoenix Stakes third Polar Force and the 104-rated sprinter In Salutem. Irish Light is a half-sister to the dam of the Group-winning juvenile First Cornerstone, in addition to being from the family of top-class and admirably tough miler Soviet Line. He stands at a fee of €4,000, and there is an attractive discount for those breeders with mares who are winning performers/producers and black-type performers/producers. AP

The Last Lion Territories

A

CERTAIN GROUP 1-WINNING miler by Invincible Spirit has gotten off to a terrific start at stud, so much so that he stood for £75,000 this year. He, of course, is Kingman. Breeders have been able to utilise another Group 1-winning miler by the same influential sire for a fraction of the price at £12,000 – Territories. His crowning moment came in the Group 1 Prix Jean Prat; a race won in the past by the likes of Tamayuz, Lawman, Havana Gold and Charm Spirit. A winner over 6f at two, Territories placed twice in Group company, including when runner-up in the Group 1 Prix Jean-Luc Lagardère to Gleneagles and Full Mast, the latter of whom was awarded the race in the stewards’ room, Gleneagles demoted to third. Trained by André Fabre, Territories’s Group 3 win in his Guineas trial set him up perfectly to finish a gallant runner-up to Gleneagles in the Group 1 2,000 Guineas. After winning the Prix Jean Prat, he ran right to his best in the Group 1 Prix Jacques Le Marois behind Esoterique, with stallions Lightning Spear,

Karakontie, Belardo and Estidhkaar all in behind. His sire Invincible Spirit has evolved to become a fixture among the best stallions in the world – he is the sire of three champions, 55 Group winners and 111 stakes winners. Invincible Spirit is that he did it the hard way, commencing at €10,000 and working his way up after showing the ability to upgrade his mares. Territories’s dam was a winner over a mile, but she earned her black-type over 1m5f. She is out of Magna Graecia, winner of the Group 3 Prix de Barbeville, a race that is just short of two miles. His damsire Machiavellian has been the broodmare sire of numerous notable stallions, including Shamardal, Zoffany and Dark Angel. With Group 1 Irish Oaks winner Helen Street as his fourth dam, Territories hails from the family of leading sires Street Cry and grandson Shamardal. Territories’s first crop of 109 foals made up to 70,000gns, with nearly 20 per cent earning 50,000gns or more leading to an average of 24,604gns, bred off a £12,000 fee. Territories covered 127 mares in 2018. AP

The Gurkha

B

EING CROWNED the European champion three-year-old miler makes for an appealing stallion prospect – especially when you consider that The Gurkha achieved this award having made his debut in April of his three-year-old career yet by mid-August his career was cut short after surgery for a displaced colon. He became the best of his generation despite having just a four-month racing career. He broke his maiden tag by a massive 8l margin on his second start before being supplemented for the Group 1 Poule d’Essai des Poulains, a race he won by over 5l — a performance which earned him an official rating of 120. He was an unlucky runner-up in the mile Group 1 St James’s Palace Stakes and was upped to 1m2f for the Group 1 Eclipse Stakes against older horses. He lost by half a length to Hawkbill. The drop back in trip for his final start in the Group 1 Sussex Stakes paid dividends and he turned the tables on Galileo Gold who beat him at

Royal Ascot. He earned a mark of 122 for that performance. It was a strong field, his rivals included Awtaad, Ribchester, Lightning Spear and Kodi Bear. The Gurkha, by the all-conquering Galileo, is out of useful 7f Group 3-winning two-year-old Chintz. She is a daughter of Danehill Dancer which means that The Gurkha is bred on similar lines to the highly sucessful Galileo-Danehill cross. He is from the family of Group 1 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe heroine Solemia and the European champion juvenile filly Silasol. Opening at a fee of €25,000, his first crop of 114 foals made up to €65,000, averaging nearly 30,000gns. He received a strong first book of mares, with over a quarter being black-type performers. He covered 135 mares in 2018 and his fee was trimmed to €17,500 for the 2019 covering season. An outstanding miler by the best stallion in the world, we probably did not get to see the best of him on the racecourse. AP

The Last The LastLion Lion

T

SCROLL DOWN TO READ FULL TEXT HE EMPHASIS in Britan and Ireland is undoubtedly on two-year-old racing and The Last Lion, who raced only at two, suits the needs of the growing market segment. The Last Lion proved he possessed an outstanding constitution, racing ten times in his juvenile season for trainer Mark Johnston. He didn’t miss a beat winning the Brocklesby Stakes on debut going right through to the end of the campaign. Runner-up in the Group 2 Norfolk Stakes on his fourth start to Prince Of Lir, The Last Lion won his first stakes race when successful in the Listed Dragon Stakes at Sandown. He followed that up when second in the Group 3 Molecomb Stakes and with a third in the Group 3 Gimcrack Stakes (to Blue Point) before taking his first Group win in the Group 3 Sirenia Stakes at Kempton. Just six days later, he produced another fine effort when runner-up to Ardad in the Group 2 Flying Childers Stakes. Consistency was The Last Lion’s forte. His form appeared to have plateaued when lining up for the Group 1 Middle Park Stakes, but he sprang a surprise to win the race at 25/1, improving markedly on previous form. It was a strong field with the subsequent Group 1 King’s Stand Stakes winner Blue Point and Mehmas filling the placings. An €82,000 yearling, he’s a son of the champion sprinter Choisir, who has already made an impact with his sons at stud through Starspangledbanner. The Last Lion is out of Mala Mala – she was also a talented two-year-old finished third in both the Group 1 Moyglare Stud and Group 1 Cheveley Park Stakes. She is the dam of two other stakeswinning sprinters – Contest and Russian Rock – and she is a halfsister to the champion two-year-old filly and Group 1 Irish 1,000 Guineas winner Tarascon. Standing at Kildangan Stud at €7,500 for 2019, he has a first crop of 43 foals who were bred off a €12,000 fee and he covered 50 mares in 2018. His foals made up to 60,000gns, averaging 18,838gns. The Last Lion was a tough, durable and top-class two-year-old, he has a classy pedigree with speed; exactly the profile desired for producing useful, early juveniles. AP

Twilight Son SCROLL DOWN TO READ FULL TEXT

T

WILIGHT SON is the first by Kyllachy to retire at the stud. It is fitting that Twilight Son retired to Cheveley Park Stud as the farm crafted the stud careers of his sire and grandsire. Trained by Henry Candy, who also trained his sire, Twilight Son was handled with skill through his career. Kept to handicap company after winning on his debut, he won his next three starts (one more as a juvenile) with the last victory in the £100,000 Charity Sprint revealing that he was a cut above a handicapper. That was to be his final start in such company as he was stepped up to Group 1 company in Haydock’s Sprint Cup, and he took his unbeaten record to five beating Strath Burn and Magical Memory. He arguably bettered that performance next time when losing nothing in defeat to the outstanding Muhaarar in the Group 1 British Champions Sprint Stakes. At four he was just as useful, beating Gold Fun in the Group 1 Diamond Stakes. Officially rated 117, Twilight Son foal sales : descending price orderJubilee (gns) Twilight Son was a sprinter of the highest class.

ALLY-HO STUD excels at giving a stallion his best possible chance at stud, and through both its broodmare band and client base, it can supply its stallions with a substantial book of mares in their formative years — crucial for any stallion to be a success. The farm’s 120-rated Group 1-winning miler Vadamos was no exception – he received strong support in his first two seasons and covered over 250 mares. He retired to Tally-Ho offering something different to breeders as a speed son of Monsun. The sire of sires has had a profound influence on the modern German thoroughbred, but he is better known for producing middle-distance types. Although his dam was a Listed winner for the Aga Khan over 1m2f, Vadamos hails from a female family cultivated by Jean-Luc Lagardère, which boasts some exceptional milers. They include the Group 1 Queen Anne Stakes winner Valixir and Val Royal, a Group 1 Breeders’ Cup Mile winner who later became the sire of the 2,000 Guineas winner Cockney Rebel. This miler characteristic came through in Vadamos, who although managed to win a Listed race over 1m2f, showed that he was more suited to a speedier test. When switched to be trained by André Fabre, who knows the family so well, he gained four Group wins over a mile. Vadamos trained on throughout his career and showed his best form at the age of five when winning the Group 1 Prix du Moulin. He commands plenty of credit for that achievement – not only did he manage to pick up a top-flight success, he had the constitution to withstand nine outings, bookended by races in Dubai and Australia. Vadamos offers a chance for breeders to outcross their mare without using a “stayer”. He is unique in that he is free of Danehill and Sadler’s Wells blood, and is free of Northern Dancer until the fourth generation. His 2019 fee has been trimmed to €7,500 from an opening fee of €10,000, with his first foals realising up to £52,000. AP

photo of the month: winners by sires with first runners of 2019

It has been a good year through the 2019 season for stallions with first runners, from all ends of the price spectrum. Above, Coolmore sire Gleneagles was the first to gain a Group race score, his colt Royal Lytham (right) winning the Tattersalls July Stakes at Newmarket’s July meeting. He was an €180,000 Arqana August yearling, bought by MV Magnier. He was bred by Haras Du Logis Saint Germain, who sent their Anabaa mare to the young son of Galileo in his first year at stud, paying a €30,000 nomination fee. Gleneagles was the most expensive new sire of 2016. Below, at the opposite end of the price range is Anjaal, the July Stakes (G2) winner and a son of Bahamian Bounty. He has stood for the whole of his stallion career at a €5,000 fee at Rathasker Stud. He made a good start getting some early season winners, but his biggest success yet came at Newbury in the Weatherbys Super Sprint courtesy of the Rod Millman-trained filly Bettys Hope (near side). Bred in Wales by Llety Farms, she is out of Miss Poppy, a daughter of Averti from the same family as Kyllachy. Bettys Hope was bought by the Millmans at the Ascot September Sale for £3,000. She picked up £122,000 for her efforts at Newbury and the prize-money haul took her sire to the top of the first-season sires’ table by earnings, and heading the previous leader Gleneagles. Who will be top of the list in December?
