WELCOME

Words you may not want, but need to hear t is a rare event indeed when a figure from the racing world as well regarded as John Gosden sits down for an interview and says exactly what he is thinking, regardless of how unpalatable some might find his views and regardless of how many nerves his words might hit. So when Gosden warns that Flat racing needs to head to the operating table for some lifesaving surgery, it really is time for everyone to take note. This month’s Big Interview (see pages 30-36) took place on as sunny a September day as Newmarket could ever hope for. The Gosden yard was buoyant. Rainbow View, fresh from a Group 1 win in Ireland, and Dar Re Mi, primed for a third successive top level win that was to be denied her only by the Longchamp stewards, were within whinnying distance of their trainer as he sat down to talk. What could be wrong? Plenty. Within minutes Gosden declared Flat racing to be in “a parlous state”. The more he talked, the more his frustration became evident. He wasn’t just going through the motions, this was a cry from the heart, a rallying call to the industry that he works in to take decisive action now or run the risk of becoming “a semiprivate club that will be increasingly irrelevant to modern society.” There are undoubtedly some within the racing and bloodstock worlds who feel no need to modernise, and probably think such thoughts unnecessary. If so, the ‘what’s wrong with things as they are?’ brigade may not enjoy what they read in this issue. “Don’t let anyone be fooled into thinking racing can afford to go down that road,” says

Gosden. “It will soon be a dead duck if it does. I think it is in terminal decline right now. I think it is that bad.” Often, when someone scratches away at racing’s glossy veneer, they are accused of “talking the industry down”. This may be a particular cry at a time when the major yearling sales at Tattersalls are likely to produce some pretty grizzly results. But at a time when the levy and, as a consequence, the amount it can contribute to prize-money is tumbling like rogue stocks, and at a time when the major racing groups are breaking away to conclude their own, direct media rights deals with bookmakers, it should be pretty clear to almost everyone in racing that things can’t go on as they are. Gosden’s blueprint for a more dynamic, prosperous future for racing centres on the need to radicalise the fixture list by creating a top tier of ‘premier’ fixtures, to be funded by the levy, that would be the focus of all attempts to promote racing to a wider world. “Horseracing is a truly beautiful spectacle,” he says, arguing that an overload of racecards prevents newspapers from giving proper coverage to the sport’s true stars. Further down the scale, Gosden believes there should be a second tier of fixtures, also financed by the levy but given much less emphasis. After that comes a bottom level of lower-grade fixtures that should be funded “through a commercial relationship between a racecourse and the betting industry.” This column, really, is just a taster for a spellbinding interview. Don’t miss it.

COVERING THE BIG STORIES IN RACING AND BREEDING

Keeneland offers sobering reminder of market difficulties A “different world” sees select session aggregate fall by 48%, to slump to its lowest level for 15 years; average price falls by 30%, median is down by 28.3% Words: Michele MacDonald

T

he first two days of Keeneland offered a sobering reflection of the market ahead of the major European yearling sales. Even though there was a huge sense of realism in Kentucky in the build-up, few, if any, could have predicted that trade would be quite as bleak as it proved. The term “different world” was repeated over and over after the aggregate fell by nearly half for the first two select sessions from last year’s total, reaching a bottom level that was the lowest reported by Keeneland in 15 years. “It felt like you were looking into an abyss,” said Three Chimneys Farm President Case Clay. The number of horses sold in the first two days, 222, declined by 26% and represented the lowest number sold since the select sessions began in 1989. The aggregate of $58,756,000 dropped by 48.2% from last year’s $113,357,000, while the average plunged by 30% to $264,667, the lowest since

1998. The median showed a similar decline, plummeting from 28.3% to $215,000. Only three horses sold for $1 million or more, compared to 17 last year. The buy-back rate climbed to 38.2%, up from 30.6% from 2008. It was the highest ever recorded for the select sessions. Some individual examples graphically drove home the extent of the problems. A colt from the family of champion Marchfield and by Elusive Quality, who stood for $100,000 in 2007 when the colt was conceived, did not draw a single bid. Keeneland Director of Sales Geoffrey Russell said he did not ever recall that happening in a select session. A colt by Giant’s Causeway, who stood for a private fee in 2007 after being $300,000 the previous year, was reported sold for $5,000. A filly by Unbridled’s Song, who stood for $200,000, and out of the mare Chimichurri, who produced last year’s highest-priced $3.1m yearling by A P Indy, was sold for $130,000.

John Ferguson was the successful bidder for this colt by Storm Cat

Many European participants at Keeneland said they do not expect the same horrifying results at the upcoming Goffs and Tattersalls sales, primarily because those venues already experienced more of the aftermath of last year’s stock market crashes than did Keeneland in 2008. “I don’t think there will be the same size of declines, but things will be tight,” said trainer Mark Johnston. “Trainers and agents will be story continued

careful – I know I will be.” Tom Goff of Blandford Bloodstock indicated he was not stunned by what happened at Keeneland. However, he did point to a fairly thin group of active buyers. “The market is extremely selective,” he said. “It’s pretty similar to what it’s been like in Europe for quite a long time — it’s either feast or famine. The thing that has surprised me is that some European buyers haven’t come

here and there appears to be a very limited group of domestic buyers.” Keeneland officials have said that the September sale typically yields patterns of around 75% of total purchases going to domestic buyers and 25% to international buyers. However, an initial estimate of the select session results showed about 55% domestic and 45% international buyers. Russell said that the plunge in prices, coupled with attractive new tax

advantages of owning thoroughbreds in the United States, could encourage more buyers to participate in later sessions, a thought echoed by Sheikh Mohammed’s advisor John Ferguson. “Horses are better value today,” he said. “For someone who wants to get into the business, it’s a fabulous time to do it. You can buy into families at affordable prices that you couldn’t do two or three years ago.”

“Breeders have been sensible about the reserves and, when they haven’t, they haven’t sold their horses” John Ferguson between Coolmore principal John Magnier and Sheikh Mohammed, who also purchased the Saratoga sale-topping $2.8m Storm Cat colt from Summer Wind. It has been a brilliant adieu for Storm Cat, the all-time leading sire of $1m-plus yearlings whose last full crop is being sold this year. Ferguson said of the Fleet Indian colt: “To breed a horse that looks like this is quite an achievement. Hats off to Summer Wind Farm. He has a lot of Storm Cat about him and he’s a very correct, athletic horse.” Ferguson also netted an Unbridled’s Song filly who is a half sister to champion juvenile Vindication for $1m, while Coolmore bought an A P Indy colt out of Grade 1 winner and producer Madcap Escapade for $1m and an Unbridled’s Song half-brother to champion Ashado for $925,000. Ferguson indicated that other agents, such as Blandford Bloodstock, were also bidding for the family’s network of racing interests. However, since Sheikh Hamdan ranked as second leading buyer with eight yearlings acquired for $3,915,000, the two brothers’ purchases alone represented 29.6% of the select sessions’ gross and it seems clear that the Maktoums’ overall buying reached at least around a third of the total.

Trainers were much more cautious about buying horses on spec

“Thank God for Sheikh Mohammed” was Martin O’Dowd’s verdict

Sheikh Mohammed invested heavily in offspring by Darley stallions, buying six by new acquisition Medaglia d’Oro, five by Street Cry and four by homebred champion Bernardini. Shadwell’s spend of $3,915,00 was also down, by an estimated aggregate of 60% and nine fewer yearlings on last year. Maktoums’ importance While some international and domestic buyers grumbled that they could not compete when the Maktoums were bidding against them, some consignors were grateful. “Thank God for Sheikh Mohammed,” said Martin O’Dowd, General Manager of Runnymede Farm, which sold a Pivotal colt and a Medaglia d’Oro colt for $300,000, each to the sheikh. Trainer Mark Johnston noted that Sheikh Mohammed’s influence on the Saratoga sale and Fasig-Tipton has, and will, affect Keeneland’s September sale. “For sure, Saratoga has put pressure on Keeneland and will continue to do so,” said Johnston, before asserting how important the Maktoums have become in all parts of the industry, regardless of how some dynamics have shifted due to their involvement. “You could say I’m biased, but they couldn’t have been fairer.

They’ve kept buying and reevaluating their stallion fees, and they’ve supported breeders who have worked with them. Without them, the market would have been in free-fall.” Yet for others, Johnston conceded that the game is now extremely difficult and he indicated he had to be much more cautious about buying horses on spec. “We are all very uncertain if we have customers for these horses,” he said during the second select session. “Two or three years ago, at these prices, I’d have a dozen on the shelf right now. But I’m too nervous to do that now; I’ve bought five and got three unsold.” Trainer John Gosden agreed that the quality of yearlings on offer at Saratoga was “consistently higher” than what he found at Keeneland, where he had difficulty in obtaining the fillies with outstanding pedigrees that he was seeking for clients. “For consignors, it’s a different world than they’ve been used to,” said Gosden, adding that trade was “realistic” considering the state of the global economic problems. “Mr RNA has been quite busy. But in the world that we are in at the moment, if you want to sell your horses, don’t set the reserve too high. “But this is not a time for doom and gloom. It’s a time for reorganising.”

“Readjustments are never easy and we are in the middle of a major readjustment,” said Russell. “It’s the perfect storm, a financial crisis matched with overproduction.” As he has done for years, Sheikh Mohammed steered the market’s upper end. But unlike the enthusiastic bidding he and his associates displayed at the FasigTipton Saratoga select sale, which is operated by the Dubaibased Synergy Investments, the sheikh and his bloodstock manager John Ferguson carefully screened reserve prices and took home many horses just above those limits. “Whenever you have a buyers’ market, that becomes a part of it,” said Ferguson. “Breeders have been sensible about the reserves and, when they haven’t, they haven’t sold their horses.” Ferguson signed tickets on 31 yearlings during Keeneland’s first two days for $13,460,000. This marked a 14% reduced spend, even though he acquired 19 more yearlings. His purchases included the $2,050,000 saletopping Storm Cat colt out of champion Fleet Indian that Taylor Made Sales Agency consigned on the second day for breeder Summer Wind Farm. The Storm Cat colt stoked a brief aura of déjà vu in the Keeneland pavilion, marking the only extended bidding duel

WINNING STREAK FOR TWEENHILLS RACING Tweenhills Racing’s horses are on a winning streak, with Fenella Rose making all to win her maiden at Epsom in September for trainer Stuart Williams. She confirmed the promise she showed on her debut when finishing second to subsequent Albany Stakes (Gr.3) winner Habaayib. Named after David and Laura's daughter born earlier this year, we are all relieved she has now reached the winner's enclosure! Sir Mark Prescott was rewarded for his patience with Golden Button, when she also made all and comfortably won her maiden at Wolverhampton in August, following up Ursula’s win in July for the racing partnership. All three fillies are held in high regard by their respective trainers and look sure to win again. If you are interested in purchasing shares in Tweenhills Racing for next year contact the office now.

INDIAN’S go to war

staff PROFILE

Sleeping Indian’s first yearlings sold so far are to go to war with Richard Hannon x 2, Kevin Ryan, Harry Dunlop, Jonathan Portman, Tim Easterby, Rod Millman and Pat Morris. The latter will train the yearling out of Page, purchased by agent Bobby O’Ryan for £25,000 at the DBS Festival Sale, who said: “I’ve liked Sleeping Indian’s first-crop yearlings and this was a cracking colt.”

Graham McCourt

DECISIVE GR.2 VICTORY IN USA

Earlier in the year, Ferneley had finished second in the San Gabriel Handicap (Gr.2) and third in the San Marcos Stakes (Gr.2). Bred by Mount Coote Stud and Richard Pegum, he also won last season’s Amethyst Stakes (Gr.3) when trained in Ireland. His dam, Amber Tide, returned to Ishiguru this season. Remember Ishiguru’s yearling crop this year are the best so far, with those sold at the DBS St Leger Sales heading to top trainers including Sir Mark Prescott (£40,000), Tom Dascombe (£32,000), etc.

What have you done since retiring as a jockey? After training for seven years and a year off in Spain, I was assistant to trainer David Wintle for five years until he packed-up in January this year. What was the appeal of Tweenhills? I was keen to try the stud side, and David gave me that opportunity. So far so good, and I’m a few pounds lighter! What is your role? Looking after the stallions and helping with yearling prep.

The Ishiguru colt, Ferneley, wins the Del Mar Handicap (Gr.2) in style

The Ishiguru colt, Ferneley, scored the biggest win of his career when landing the Del Mar Mile Handicap (Gr.2) in USA by a decisive 1½l. Trained by Ben Cecil, he came from off the pace to race home in less than a second outside the course record.

Fenella Rose lands her maiden for Tweenhills Racing at Epsom

What do you enjoy most? The friendships you make working with like-minded people. We all get stuck in and work hard. Sleeping Indian filly out of Crofters Ceilidh will be offered at Tattersalls October Sale Book 2 (Lot 1060)

WINKWORTH REDVERS DOUBLE

Other interests? My five-year-old son, Finlay, keeps me busy enough. Future ambitions? Stay fit and healthy, and to enjoy myself.

Raine’s Cross and Tropical Paradise scored a winning double at Salisbury on 3rd September for Peter Winkworth and David Redvers. A delighted Peter commented: “Raine’s Cross’ race started in sunshine and ended in a monsoon! But this suited Tropical Paradise as she liked the cut. It was a really exciting afternoon and the two horses, both bought by David for just £12,500 and €42,000, are now rated 95 and 100 respectively.”

Racing mourns tragic loss of Jamie Kyne and Jan Wilson The racing world was shocked and saddened by the deaths of apprentice jockeys Jamie Kyne and Jan Wilson after a fire at their accommodation in Norton, near Malton in North Yorkshire. Kyne, 18, was apprenticed to trainer John Quinn and a rising star on the northern circuit. He was initially spotted by another trainer, Declan Carroll, riding at Kempton’s breeze-up sale and subsequently made the move from his native Galway to North Yorkshire. Kyne had partnered 29 winners this season, including Ishetoo in a valuable sprint handicap at York in May, and was third in the apprentice jockeys’ championship, which has been renamed this year in tribute to the two riders. Wilson, 19, was based with David Barron and had scored three times this year aboard Imperial Sword, owned by her mother, Margaret. From Rescobie, near Forfar, she had previously worked for

Ferdy Murphy and had fulfilled a long-held ambition to become a jockey. Kevin Darley, Chief Executive of the Professional Jockeys’ Association, said: “They were showing such promise as young people and to have lost their lives in such terrible

circumstances is devastating. “The pride of Jan’s family in her achievements shone through, especially when she enjoyed her third winner on Imperial Sword at Ayr. “Jamie was a starlet, as the progress he had made in his career at such a tender age

Jamie Kyne

shows. He was an immensely popular member of the weighing room and a great future was in store for him. “The deaths of Jan and Jamie will be felt among the community of jockeys for many years to come. We have lost two of our own. They won’t be forgotten.”

Members of the racing community and residents in Newmarket turned out in force at a public meeting on September 17, as they battle against controversial plans to build 1,200 new homes on Lord Derby’s Hatchfield Farm. The meeting at the National Horseracing Museum was

organised by the Save Historic Newmarket Action Group. Its chair, Rachel Hood, lawyer Justin Wadham and trainer John Berry addressed an audience that featured John Gosden, Luca and Sara Cumani, Chris and Annie Richardson, Bill Gredley and Jimmy George. Forest Heath District Council

recently voted to approve the Local Development Framework that includes plans for building on Hatchfield Farm, on Fordham Road in the north-east of Newmarket. Opponents say the Hatchfield scheme will greatly increase traffic flow and have a devastating effect on the local

horse population. The Newmarket meeting followed a statement by Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony, in which he criticised FHDC for ignoring an independently commissioned report that “highlighted the potentially disastrous impact of the proposed Hatchfield Farm development on the viability of Newmarket as a training centre”. Mahony said: “The racing industry will be making representations to the examiner in which the proposal to develop Hatchfield Farm into a housing estate of 1,200 homes will be vigorously and unanimously opposed by all of the racing industry bodies which were signatories of the Barton Willmore report. “It remains abundantly clear that the future of Newmarket as a horseracing centre of global importance is very much at stake.”

ROA LEADER

Gosden three-tier idea is the right way forward When an articulate commentator on the sport like John Gosden paints as bleak a picture as he does, it is time for everyone to sit up and take notice his issue of the magazine provides us with some plain speaking from John Gosden. As the racing world knows, John is much more than a very successful racehorse trainer. He is an intelligent and articulate commentator on the sport and, when he decides to make strident comments about the state of British horseracing, it is advisable for us to take notice. John paints a picture of an industry heading for the brink. Taking his cue from recent news concerning the diminishing levy and its future effect on prize-money, he tells us that, if racing continues on its current path, it is destined to become “a semi-private club, irrelevant to modern society”. He picks up the theme that I started to explore last month, in saying that the current fixture list is unsustainable in the context of the levy’s decline, and agrees that we must now cut our cloth in a way that reflects the reality of levy income. At the same time, he acknowledges the shift that is taking place in industry finances and how the significant increases in racecourse media rights income should help to make up for levy deficiencies through racecourses funding some of their own fixtures. We agree that the way forward is to create a new three-tier fixture structure. The Premier fixtures and those in the second tier would continue to receive levy funding, but the third tier would not, except perhaps for receiving grants for integrity services. I would go further in suggesting the third tier fixtures should be run on days and at times that are entirely of the racecourses’ choosing. There should be no race-planning conditions placed on them but they must, of course, continue to adhere to the rules of racing. Like John, I believe prize-money levels for these fixtures should be a matter agreed with the Horsemen’s Group. Such a system, as John undoubtedly knows, would help to sustain the premier events. It would allow us to have a real chance of meeting the aspirations of Racing For Change, as strong demarcation lines would be drawn between the very good, the quite good and the mediocre. For racing’s best chance of captivating a new audience is to play to its strengths, as any other sport does – to put its best performers and best races in

lights and, within reason, let other parts of the industry find its own levels. There is nothing in this proposal that is antibookmaker. Indeed, I believe that such a system would work for the betting industry, which has always been strangely reluctant to acknowledge the importance of quality racing in attracting punters to their shops. An extreme example, perhaps, but witness how packed betting shops are during the Cheltenham Festival. Under this new system, a stronger link would be established between a racecourse’s ability to generate betting turnover and how much that course receives in levy, so there is no reason why racecourses wouldn’t want to put on programmes that are in the interests of bookmakers. The new system would, more than ever, be dependent on the provision of bookmaker information, on how much betting is generated by a particular fixture or race. If bookmakers choose not to provide racing with this, then they can hardly complain about not having a fixture list that suits their business models. Racecourses would be wise to heed John Gosden’s warnings, especially when he talks about the 1973/74 recession when “you suddenly start staring at empty boxes and stable staff start getting laid off”. It has been a long time since the horse population was unable to sustain the fixture list, but there are nagging worries that we may soon be facing that scenario. Whatever may be happening in terms of the general economy coming out of recession, it is clear that racing is going to feel its chill winds for at least another two years. Nobody within the industry can take any comfort from a dramatic fall in horse numbers, least of all the ROA, but, as the balance between horse and fixture numbers shift, so racecourses are going to be forced to compete for runners like never before. In any event, the option of allowing the funding structure of British racing to remain unchanged is fast disappearing. A position that has become clear to the Horsemen’s Group should now be acknowledged by all of British racing. Otherwise, I have a feeling that John’s wise words will come back to haunt us.

“It has been a long time since the horse population was unable to sustain the fixture list, but there are nagging worries about that now”

Pattern not reflecting modern-day situation The horse population no longer meets the demands of the bloated Pattern programme, thus Racing For Change needs to instigate a thorough review hen Great Britain approached the other members of the European Pattern in 2002 with its plans for a major enhancement of its own Group and Listed programme, British racing was enjoying a golden age in terms of both its finances and its racehorse population. The levy was on the way out, to be replaced by the sale of data rights, which promised income from any jurisdiction in which betting took place on British racing. Thanks in no small part to the success of Godolphin, horses trained in Britain won an historically high proportion of European Pattern races. In turn, that meant they dominated the International Classification. Since those heady days, the loss of the William Hill data case in the European Court of Justice necessitated the last gasp resuscitation of the Levy Board. Worse still, the loss of income from bets placed outside Great Britain – a loss which appears even more acute in the light of the moves offshore of the internet businesses of Ladbrokes and William Hill – has led to a significant decline in racing’s income. That has only in part been compensated for by the additional payments made to racecourses through the sale of pictures. At the same time, a decline in Godolphin’s domination of European Group races has led to an increasing number being won by horses trained in Ireland, at Ballydoyle in particular. It means British-trained horses no longer dominate the European Pattern or International Classification. As an example, look at the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes, a race in which between 1995 and 2004 Godolphin provided five winners and five runners-up. Compare that to the last five years, when they have filled the runner-up position only once and failed to field so much as a runner for the last two years. Conduit’s victory this season ended a four-year annexation of the race by Irish runners. All this raises the question of whether we can afford the Pattern programme in its current size, not only in terms of the amount of the prizemoney pool it absorbs, but also in terms of its impact on the horse population and the degree to which races of a similar type are competing with each other to the extent that the Pattern as a whole risks being undermined.

W

Philip Freedman Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association

In 2002 the prize fund for the 250 Pattern and Listed races was £18,523,000, out of a total prize fund on the Flat of £55,900,125 (33%). But the 295 Pattern races this year are due to account for £27,283,000 of the £72,800,000 fund (37.5%). The rise in minimum values over that period – by as much as 48.8% for Group 1s and 85% for Group 3s – is much higher than minimum values for lesser races, and this will be even more marked if the cuts outside the black type races planned for 2010 are implemented. At the same time, the number of Pattern races failing to meet their three-year ratings requirements has increased from two in 2002 to 11 in 2008. Equally, the UK accounted for 54% of the European-trained horses appearing within the International Classification in 2001, yet this figure fell to 41% in 2008. It could easily be argued that if minimum values of Pattern races were allowed to drop from their present levels, the overall financial burden of offering adequate prize-money would ease. However, such a solution would further undermine Group and Listed race quality: preserving the value of these races to match those of our international competitors has been a key part of maintaining their ratings. Our Pattern races need to retain their appeal to horses trained overseas, because the domestic horse population alone is not of sufficient quality to ensure their success. How the Pattern fits within the framework of ‘Racing For Change’ is a further complication and the co-existence of the aspiration for an end-of-season championship, with continued membership of the European Pattern, is likely to be controversial to say the least. But it may be that we need Racing For Change to instigate a thorough review of the British Pattern, the growth of which has, in recent years, been organic rather than structured. This would help ensure we have not only a Pattern race programme we can afford, but one which accurately reflects the quality of our horse population as it is now, rather than as it was some years ago.

“We have to question whether we can afford the Pattern programme in its current size – there are 295 races this year, against 250 in 2002”

COMMENT

Tony Morris

October was a month to be dreaded, but also one which provided the racing memories to last a lifetime. Vaguely Noble, Nijinsky, Pebbles...

N my 33 years as a bloodstock sales reporter, covering all auctions in Britain and the most important in Ireland, I dreaded October. For 25 of those years home was Kent and in that exhausting month I was hardly ever there, as the travelling circus moved from Newmarket to Kill, back to Newmarket, then to Doncaster before a third week in Newmarket. If there seemed to be a free day, Ascot would fill it. The daily grind was punishing and even if it was one of those years when the market boomed, records were set, and all the players were full of the joys of autumn, it didn’t stop me yearning for November and a bit of a break before the marathon fortnight back at Tatts. I don’t envy my successors their 2009 October, when the predictable gloom around the rings will just make the month seem longer. But the drudgery of those long days at the sales was worth it, because there was always more than ample compensation to be gained from the feast of high-class racing between sessions. Of all the many thousands of transactions I witnessed in those 33 Octobers, I have vivid recall of just a handful. By contrast, much of what I saw on the racecourse remains imprinted in my memory; the month I used to dread provided me with some of the best, most memorable fun of my racegoing life. The day of the Champion Stakes in 1966 was one such example. I watched the big race with John Sharratt, then – and for many years – acknowledged as the finest race-reader in the business. John was not the kind of guy to get emotional about the sport; he had his job to do, took it seriously, and in an era when the press did not have the luxury of endless TV replays for confirmation or revision of first impressions, his matter-of-fact descriptions set the standard.

I

“I am ready to acclaim Sea The Stars as the best, if he does what I believe he can”

Lester does the impossible – twice

We watched Lester Piggott drive Pieces Of Eight home for a last-stride victory over Ballyciptic and, for once, John was genuinely moved, saying: “You will never see a better example of race-riding than that.” I would have remembered that anyway, but was given further cause to remember it later in the afternoon, when, in the much less important Houghton Stakes, Lester did the impossible again, getting Love For Sale home in another desperate finish. “I take back what I said earlier,” said John, struggling to believe what he had just seen.

The big October moment in the following year came at Doncaster, when punters were so perplexed over the form of the runners in the Observer Gold Cup that they sent off the Noel Murless-trained debutant Connaught as favourite. Under two furlongs from home all eight runners were virtually in line, seemingly confirming what a moderate lot they were, but then, in the blink of an eye, there was one, in the familiar Holliday colours, out in front on his own. He kept widening his advantage all the way to the line, where he had seven lengths to spare. It was one of those ‘looks too good to be true’ results and many on Town Moor needed what he did as a three-year-old before acknowledging that, in Vaguely Noble, they truly had seen one of the best racehorses of all time. Champion Stakes day in 1968 opened with the unforgettable sight of 45 maiden two-yearolds charging up the last six furlongs of the Rowley Mile and 6-4 favourite Hymn storming home by five lengths. There were just too many behind him for the stewards to be bothered with those who might have been non-triers. An hour after that we saw Sir Ivor turn on the style in the big race, his last in Europe, and before the day was over those with a crystal ball saw the finish of the Houghton Stakes fought out by a Derby hero (Blakeney) and dual Cambridgeshire winner (Prince de Galles). First glimpse of Nijinsky

It was painful to watch the wonderful, but always vulnerable, Park Top go under to Flossy in the 1969 Champion, but my abiding memory of that meeting was my first glimpse of Nijinsky, in the paddock before the Dewhurst. It was a case of hero worship at first sight and little did I imagine that 12 months on he would emulate Park Top with a tired effort behind Lorenzaccio in the same race. That October my consolation came through Brigadier Gerard’s Middle Park and Mill Reef’s Dewhurst, classy displays, both of them, but little did I realise at the time just how outstanding that pair would prove themselves to be in the years that followed. And so it went on, season after season, with October rarely failing to deliver moments on the racecourse that would lodge for a lifetime in the memory bank. If I had to nominate one as surpassing all others over the last 30 years, it would have to be the indelible image of Pebbles cantering all over Slip Anchor in the closing

Lysaght’s People The man from the Beeb brings us all the patter from the racecourse

stages of the 1985 Champion. Rarely does one top-class athlete treat another with such disdain, and what a special privilege it was to witness it! I have relished re-running that magical moment in my mind’s eye ever since and I’ll continue to do so until Alzheimer’s overtakes me. It is abundantly clear what October 2009 is going to bring for the bloodstock industry. There will be some high prices for yearlings but for many there will be grief, with vast numbers of the most expensively produced crop in history trading at a loss or failing to sell. Money is tight, orders are down, trainers are going to back off buying on spec, jobs will be lost. All that’s grim. But for the racegoer and ordinary fan it is a month to savour, as the season draws to its climax, championships are decided and reflections made on a special year, particularly for form among the Classic generation. All being well, it will be the month when we learn just where Sea The Stars belongs among the all-time greats. Sea The Stars one to savour

As I write, the Arc is his target and, unless the ground comes up soft, that will be where we get his measure. If not, the Champion Stakes is likely to serve the same purpose. The prospect is one to excite all for whom top-class racing provides the ultimate in sporting endeavour, from the neophyte to the hardened old-timer who reveres the memory of heroes of yore. I admit to always having held Sea-Bird in the highest regard. He came early in my racegoing career and, while other heroes have emerged, like Nijinsky, Mill Reef, Brigadier Gerard, Shergar and Dancing Brave, it would have seemed sacrilegious to bring the great Derby and Arc hero of 1965 down from his pedestal. But I like to think I’ve kept an open mind and don’t just hanker after the good old days. I recall how Quintin Gilbey, with half a century of racegoing and reporting behind him, had no hesitation in declaring Sea-Bird’s Arc the greatest performance he had ever seen. He had seen a host of brilliant horses, but that day at Longchamp came as a welcome epiphany to him. Similarly, the greatest of American turf writers, Charlie Hatton, who had seen all the top runners in the States from the days of Man o’ War, ultimately, and gladly, pronounced in favour of Secretariat as his number one. Now, having marvelled at the progress of Sea The Stars and recognised a display of exceptional merit in his latest win at Leopardstown, I find myself ready to acclaim him as the best in my experience if he does what I believe he can do this October. I can hardly wait.

Camera never lies For generations of Etonian racing devotees, the flames of enthusiasm were fanned by tutor Michael Kidson. Among guests at a dinner to mark his 80th birthday in August was an array of former pupils, including trainers Nicky Henderson and Jonathan Pease, extrainer Charlie Brooks and owner Peter Daresbury. Under his unconventional tutelage they had been permitted to watch racing on TV and go to meetings. No occasion was more memorable than when a teenaged Henderson was smuggled to Newbury to see the great Arkle in Hennessy Gold Cup action in 1966. Detailed planning was required to avoid detection and be back at Eton in time for Saturday late afternoon rollcall (designed to dissuade such capers). They duly watched Arkle do his stuff, well away from most of the large crowd, at the final fence, and got away quickly enough to be back with time to spare. Mission accomplished? Nearly. All was fine until it became clear that the Sunday newspaper shots of Arkle were all of his giant leap at the last, with, you’ve guessed it, a cheering schoolboy crystal clear for the headmaster to spot in the background.

This is (not) England Newbury’s loss has been others’ gain when it comes to Mark Kershaw. Not only has he overseen the successful start of Ffos Las, but he’s also returned to Ayr, his pre-Newbury incarnation, as a

consultant. “I have to go away from England to get work nowadays,” he joked, before passing on two invaluable tips for Ffos Las, saying: “The best way in from the M4 is via junction 48 and Felinfoel; and if the queue for the loo in the Owners and Trainers bar is bad, there’s another pretty much undiscovered one just round the corner.”

Respect but no Stars John Oxx’s diplomacy was fully evident at the St Leger, where many had dared hope they might see his 2,000 Guineas and Derby hero Sea The Stars targeting the Triple Crown. Despite the closer-tohome attraction of Ireland’s St Leger the same day (which he won), Oxx was at Sunny Donny to saddle fifth-placed Mourayan. Asked why, he replied: “I left Sea The Stars at home. I thought I should at least accord the race some respect by turning up myself.”

Howell’s equine eureka moment Sculptor Morgan Howell didn’t know that he liked horses, let alone racing, until a trip to the British Museum. But sight of an equine head from the Ancient Greek temple of Parthenon on the Acropolis proved to be something of a eureka moment. Now a regular sight at Towcester and Huntingdon, and taking commissions for horses’ heads in bronze, chrome, iron or clay, for St Albans-

based Howell this is clearly a big passion. “I was blown away by the Greek horse,” he enthused. “It’s in full flight, ears pointed, nostrils flared, eyes bulging, coursing with energy; that’s just brilliant for an artist and what I try to capture.” And with that sort of a way with words, if the sculpture doesn’t work out, Morgan, a job in the BHA marketing department just might do.

Whatever challenge you throw at him, Sea The Stars, expertly guided by a wise old rider in Michael Kinane, seems to take it in his stride. The scenes in the Leopardstown winnersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; enclosure (below) were more reminiscent of an Irish victory at the Cheltenham Festival than the usually lofty world of elite Flat racing.

VIEW FROM IRELAND FROM LEO POWELL

So where will our Star retire to stud?

Leo Powell is Managing Editor of The Irish Field

Destination of John Oxx-trained superstar still unknown, as owner hints that “the pride of a nation” will remain in Ireland

T

he rumour mill in Ireland is currently in overdrive with all and sundry trying to second-guess where the world champion Sea The Stars will stand at stud next year. Many people have the Irish National Stud, where Sea The Stars was raised, as favourite to be his ultimate address, although what effect the departure of stud manager John Clarke, who also represents Sea The Stars’s breeders, the Tsui family, remains to be seen. Speaking after the colt’s win in the Juddmonte International, Ling Tsui said that he “is the pride of a nation and it is why we are very conscious and careful with any decision we make with regard to his racing career and breeding career.” The Tsuis have been steadfast in their refusal to be drawn any further.

Owner Christopher Tsui did not make it to Leopardstown for what was undoubtedly Sea The Stars’s finest performance to date in front of his home crowd, but he was present at York for the International and how he enjoyed the occasion. Often mistakenly described as a nightclub owner, he is the possessor of a very fine CV. Educated in Paris, Tsui had his heart set on a career as a professional golfer and scaled the heights to compete on a few tours, including the Canadian PGA tour. When he found that he did not enjoy the loneliness of life as a touring golfer, he moved to London to study at the CASS Business School, where last year he obtained his MBA. He now works for the family business and divides his time between Europe, Canada and Hong Kong.

While Sea The Stars excels on the track his stallion career is debated

William Hill has ceased its sponsorship of the Galway Plate and the racecourse is on the lookout for a suitable replacement. Even in these difficult times, a sponsor should be found quickly for this highlight of the summer jumping programme. The 2009 winner Ballyholland proved a bargain when he sold for €2,000 as a four-year-old at Tattersalls Ireland’s August Sale in 2005. His career earnings now top £180,000. He was bred by Andrew Kavanagh at the stately pile that is Borris House in County Carlow.

Kavanagh is an interesting man. He is a first cousin of the late Martin Wills, after whom the most prestigious writing prize on an equine theme is named. He rode as an amateur for such as Tom Dreaper and Paddy Sleator, and as a professional in the UK for Clifford Nicholson. Now he and his family have turned their 17th century home into an upmarket wedding venue, capable of entertaining some 250 guests. For many music enthusiasts the venue also hosts a summer highlight, an annual opera festival.

The Irish Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association is a busy place these days. In midSeptember they officially opened their imaginatively designed new headquarters at the entrance to the sales paddock at Goffs. Manager Shane O’Dwyer and Chairman Joe Foley invited the President of Ireland, Mary McAleese, to perform the official opening and what a marvellous tribute her presence paid to the association. A few days later came the launch of the Young Irish Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association (YITBA), a vehicle

for young people to become more active in the work of the association. For those aged between 16 and 24, it is hoped that the new division will ignite interest in the work of the main body and help the young members to develop their own ideas, too. Thoroughbred Owner & Breeder as international media partner and The Irish Field as media partner will help to promote the ITBA Expo 2010, which will take place at Goffs on January 29 and 30. Space has been selling so quickly that it looks as though the full house sign will soon be posted.

INTERNATIONAL SCENE

Arctic on roll for Collins and Pegum Exciting son of Shamardal looks destined for bigger things after bagging Curragh Group 3 At a time when selling horses is becoming more difficult and the marketing of sales is crucial, it is good to report that Flat racing is not just the preserve of the rich elite. One of Ireland’s leading two-year-olds is a perfect example of the adage that horses have no idea what they cost. The well-bred Arctic is a son of Shamardal and at 9,000gns was the second cheapest yearling sold by his sire in 2008. The colt was bought by Tracey Collins, who took over the reins at the historic Conyngham Lodge stables on the Curragh following the death of her father, Con, in January 2007. Arctic made his debut in early July at Bellewstown, where he won in good fashion, and his trainer was fulsome in her praise

for the colt, who carried the colours of her mother Barbara. Just over three weeks later he reappeared in a Listed race at the Curragh, this time sporting the silks of the London-based Australian Richard Pegum. Arctic’s new racing colours will be familiar to European racegoers, as they are those carried to a Breeders’ Cup Marathon success last year by Muhannak. Pegum was also a part-owner of the 2000 Melbourne Cup winner Brew. At the end of August, Arctic took a further jump up the ladder when contesting the Group 3 Go And Go Round Tower Stakes at the Curragh and beat Air Chief Marshal by four and a half lengths. The runner-up had previously run second to Alfred

Views In Brief Flyer enjoying new life The Irish Horse Welfare Trust officially unveiled their new premises in County Wicklow, in an idyllic spot overlooking the beautiful Vale of Avoca. There they cater for some 60 horses and ponies that have come to them in various states of distress. The Trust also retrains thoroughbreds. Enjoying his new life there is the brilliant twomile champion chaser Moscow Flyer. His trainer Jessica Harrington cut the ceremonial ribbon.

Moscow Flyer has a new home

Stars eclipses opposition One of the racing world’s favourite eateries is the Hanged Man’s restaurant in a small village called Milltown, a short distance from the Curragh racecourse. The host Pat Keane is well known to many in the industry and any evening in the warm surroundings of the pub and restaurant you can do a bit of human star spotting. The food is delicious and the huge numbers of diners who are regulars attest to its appeal. The restaurant was the venue recently for the annual Connolly’s Red Mills/The Irish Field Breeder of the Year awards. This competition sees four nominees battle it out for a monthly prize, voted on by readers of the paper. The dozen winners then go forward for the overall award, which is the result of a vote by a judging panel. This year the breeders of Flat luminaries such as Kingsgate Native, Nahoodh, Bushranger, New Approach, Paco Boy and Sea The Stars were pitted

Nobel in the Group 1 Phoenix Stakes. Having been supplemented for the Middle Park Stakes at Newmarket on October 2, it is hoped Arctic could develop into a live 2,000 Guineas candidate next year.

Collins does not train a huge stable of horses but she has made quite an impact in her short career as a licence holder in her own right, with stakes winners Dandy Man, Girouette and Pencil Hill also performing with distinction.

Tracey Collins is aiming Arctic at the Middle Park Stakes in October

against the producers of Snoopy Loopy, Breedsbreeze, Joe Lively, Glenfinn Captain, Imperial Commander and Dunguib. The winner of the main award this time was Ling Tsui, on behalf of her family’s Sunderland Holdings. They were responsible for Sea The Stars. The outgoing Irish National Stud Chief Executive John Clarke received the trophy on her behalf. Previous winners include David and Diane Nagle, Jim Bolger and Seamus Burns. Just weeks after the event came the news that Clarke is to leave his role at the Irish National Stud. He is set to pursue a career as an independent bloodstock consultant and his curriculum vitae shows that he was associated with such successful sires as Indian Ridge, Invincible Spirit and Verglas during his 27 years at the stud. The stud’s chairman Lady O’Reilly said: “He has made an enormous contribution to the success of the Irish National Stud and leaves with the best wishes of the board for his new venture.”

Disease discovered The Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food confirmed the occurrence of equine Piroplasmosis in a number of thoroughbreds in County Meath. An investigation is under way to establish the origin and extent of the disease, a tickborne protozan disease which is caused by blood parasites and gives rise to anaemia and jaundice in affected animals. Racing Post Bonus Scheme The disappointment of the recent prize-money cuts in Ireland has been partially offset by the news that 41 two-yearold races in Ireland next year will benefit from the Racing Post Yearling Bonus Scheme. Honour for McCoy Fourteen-time UK champion jump jockey Tony McCoy was recently honoured with a reception at Stormont, in Northern Ireland, hosted by the Minister for Culture, Arts and Leisure, Nelson McCausland.

THE NEWS FROM MAINLAND EUROPE

A tale of two men Contrasting fortunes for pair of trainers trying their luck across the Channel, though both remain upbeat about their futures in France

R

acing Post readers may have been wondering why results from Chateaubriant, Dieppe and Saint-Malo have started to appear of late. The answer is that Eoghan O’Neill, the young trainer who shot to prominence a few years ago with back-to-back wins in Doncaster’s Champagne Stakes, has a new French venture. O’Neill, who has yet to reach his 40th birthday and has been training for almost a decade, explained: “I have moved much of my string to a 120-acre former trotting yard at the village of Igé, near Le Mans.”

Eoghan O’Neill has a new venture

Words: James Crispe

“It is in the middle of nowhere but it only 110 miles west of Paris and 90 miles south of Deauville. We have two allweather gallops, including a five and a half furlong straight made out of softrack, which for me is the mamma of all surfaces, and 60 boxes. “This is a lovely place to raise a family and I am considering moving the whole operation here. I have made enquiries about obtaining a French licence.” O’Neill served his apprenticeship as assistant to Robert Collet, so is familiar with the French racing scene, and speaks the language. But it was financial considerations that prompted the move, chiefly the low price of agricultural property, which was roughly a third of what it would be across the Channel. The high levels of French prizemoney, not to mention generous owners’ premiums, were other significant factors and the venture has got off to a flying start. Five wins and 12 places from his first 39 runners mean that O’Neill can claim that, with

premiums and a couple of horses sold out of claimers, his horses have earned €200,000 in the first two months. “My owners have been 100% behind the move,” he said. “I have lost only one owner and that was because he physically couldn’t make it over to France.” O’Neill’s successful record in Britain must have paved the way for this apparently seamless transition. By contrast, the lack of previous training laurels under his own name on an otherwise strong CV appears to have counted against Jonathan Ward, another young thruster trying to make a go of it in France. More than a year younger than O’Neill, Ward has long been bitten by the racing bug, spending his school holidays with Nicky Henderson in Lambourn. After doing Business and Equine Studies at Coventry University (where he met his wife, Jo), he worked in America and Australia before a spell in Newmarket led to a shift as assistant to Guy Cherel in France.

In 2005, the Wards decided to take the plunge and join the training ranks. Ward completed the five-week-long Chantillybased qualification course and, after an extensive tour of French training centres, plumped for Sennones, near Rennes, as the best place to start. It has not been easy. Since his first runner in March 2006, Ward has had a total of 74 starters and is still waiting for his first winner, although eight places have gleaned almost €22,000. Nevertheless, he remains happily upbeat about future prospects, saying: “The French system, with its premiums, lack of entry fees and subsidised travel to the races, favours owners and offers an affordable way for a young trainer to set up. “Even the very smallest races have prize-money of €3,000, before premiums, and money down to fifth. Sennones is perfectly positioned and is growing tremendously. Last year was difficult but we have had a bit more interest from prospective owners this summer.”

as Tveter’s assistant and also helps look after the course at Ovrevoll, where her five-strong string is housed. Three years ago he clubbed together with two friends, the Irish-born former jump jockey Frank Brennan, and the Oslo fish hall proprietor Karl Hansen, and forked out 250,000 krone (about £21,500) for the top lot at a Norwegian yearling sale. The horse in question was Theatrical Award, from the first crop of Academy Award, a twiceraced Danehill half-brother to Group 1 winner Priory Belle and the recent Turkish heroine Eva’s

Request, who stands at Stutteri Hjortebo in Denmark. Out of the Theatrical filly, Theatre Antique, she did not dally in repaying her purchase price, last year landing Norway’s second richest prize, the Derby, before this year stepping up to win its richest, the Marit Sveaas Minnelop at Ovrevoll on August 23, dethroning reigning champion Appel Au Maitre in the process. Taylor describes her as “a fantastic athlete who looks like a colt.” He continues: “Her family are renowned as difficult and she was big and backward when we got her, so we have given her

plenty of time. This year she has exploded and is still improving.” Adamant that she will not be rushed off to the breeding paddocks, Taylor revealed: “We have had so much fun with her that we would like to try to win a Group 3 in England next year.” Flicking through the Pattern book, the Summer Stakes at York is now a possible target. Ultimately, he would love to plunder the Sun Chariot Stakes, meaning that he could return to Newmarket and show off to his old mates, some of whom may aid or abet such a dream as part of the starting stalls team.

Norway A shock defeat at odds of 1-5 in the Listed Coolmore Matchmaker Stakes at Taby on September 13 does not mean that we have seen the last of Scandinavia’s top filly, Theatrical Award, and her British owner, Michael ‘Dusty’ Taylor. Hertfordshire-born Taylor worked for Jack Jarvis and Doug Smith in Newmarket before he was tempted over to Norway in 1974 by a job offer from Terje Dahl, for whom he looked after the 1976 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe fourth Noble Dancer. He has had spells training himself, both in Norway and Sweden. Now, aged 57, he acts

Dar Re Mi (pink) impedes Soberania in the Vermeille and subsequently loses the race in the stewards’ room

Rigid rules in France cost Dar Re Mi Prix Vermeille glory British trainers enjoyed a highly profitable Deauville August meeting, bagging 13 wins (including two Group 1s) and 16 places during the month. And the run of success continued in early September, most notably when Aqlaam lifted the Prix du Moulin for trainer William Haggas. Conspiracy theorists no doubt had this in the back of their minds when crying foul about the disqualification of Dar Re Mi in favour of Stacelita in the Prix

Vermeille. Indeed, in the three weeks up to and including Vermeille day, the Brits won over half of the 16 French Pattern races. Dar Re Mi’s owner Lady Lloyd-Webber has every reason to be upset at the decision, which she is set to appeal, but as the French rules stand the stewards carried out their duties to the letter. They decided that Dar Re Mi slightly hampered fifth-placed Soberania, possibly costing her

a better classification, and so had to demote her, thus preserving the unbeaten record of the unaffected Stacelita in the most fortunate fashion possible. It is interesting to compare the Vermeille with the previous day’s St Leger, in which third-placed Monitor Closely hung badly in the closing stages to cost the blameless Mourayan, who subsequently missed fourth place by a short head, considerable prize-money. Yet no action was taken.

Perhaps the country where the rules are most even-handed is Germany. If the Prix Vermeille had been run there, because Soberania was out of the first four (hence even moving her up one place would not have affected betting), Dar Re Mi would have been allowed to keep the race, but her connections would have been forced to pay the difference between fifth- and fourth-placed prize-money to the owners of Soberania.

Turkey Owners and trainers who failed to realise the extent of the opportunity presented by last month’s Turkish International Racing Festival must be kicking themselves. Just ask Michael Channon junior, son of the West Ilsley trainer. He oversaw a four-day trip with two horses (Eva’s Request and Halicarnassus) that brought a 100% success rate; owners who thoroughly enjoyed a memorable trip to one of the world’s most vibrant cities; plus the small matter of £451,389 in prize-money,

which equates to over a third of what the yard earned at home in the whole of 2008. Or ask Michael Jarvis, who lay in a hospital bed in England recovering from heart surgery knowing that, 3,000 miles away at Veliefendi racecourse, Pressing had just won Europe’s richest mile race for the second year running, two sorties that pouched over £700,000 or US$1.2 million in his native currency for Pressing’s absent American owner Gary Tanaka. Overall, in two nights’ work the foreign raiders snaffled

Pressing (right) and Dream Eater were a British 1-2 in the Topkapi Trophy

US$2.2 million of the US$3 million on offer at the festival. Even the most nationalistic of the overseas guests was relieved when the home team, who had looked after their

visitors so well, finally got on the board by taking the last of the six international races, the purebred Arabians-only Malazgirt Trophy, with the Halis Karatas-ridden Turbo.

Storm over synthetics Debate over safety of synthetic surfaces intensifies as one study indicates that racing on dirt is less likely to cause horse deaths

G

rowing scepticism about the safety and consistency of synthetic racing surfaces, once hailed as a revolutionary means to reduce fatal breakdowns, is spreading across the United States. A University of California-Davis study of horse deaths from 2008 racing in California indicated there could be a higher incidence of fatal hind leg injuries on synthetic racecourses than on dirt tracks.

The Breeders’ Cup will be conducted for the second consecutive year at Santa Anita Park in California; there were no major injuries suffered during last year’s event that featured the debut of Santa Anita’s Pro-Ride synthetic surface. A number of trainers have maintained that their horses tend to experience more hind end problems while training and racing on synthetics than when they were raced and trained on dirt.

The new study resulted in some inflammatory, if not downright misleading, headlines, which seemed to be indicative of the increasingly strident debate on the subject of surfaces. California’s largest newspaper, the Los Angeles Times, declared: “Thoroughbreds suffer a higher number of fatal injuries on synthetic surfaces compared to dirt.” The accompanying story did not explain that the data came primarily from racing conducted on synthetic tracks, nor did it offer

the overall numbers showing more total deaths on dirt tracks. There may have been three times as many starts on California’s synthetic tracks as on dirt tracks, noted CHRB medical director Dr Rick Arthur, who confirmed, however, that the data indicated a growing trend of hind end injuries on synthetic surfaces. Overall, the data showed 256 racing-related horse deaths on California tracks in 2008, with 145 on dirt and 111 on synthetics. Arthur noted that the study covered a period of time when Santa Anita’s original Cushion Track synthetic surface experienced major problems. That surface was removed and replaced with Pro-Ride prior to last year’s Breeders’ Cup. “I don’t think this is the beginning of the end (for synthetics),” said Arthur. “There are certainly issues to be addressed and synthetics have been frustrating for everybody. There is no middle ground of opinion.” Several owners and trainers have indicated they will not send their horses to this year’s Breeders’ Cup, including Jess Jackson, primary owner of Rachel Alexandra. He called synthetic surfaces “plastic” and said they often yield results in which the best horse is not the winner.

Australia’s largest and oldest sale company, William Inglis & Son Ltd, has joined with the Australian Jockey Club for a $12.9 million revitalisation of Warwick Farm racecourse and the anticipated construction of a major new sale facility. Acquired by the AJC in 1922, Warwick Farm lies in the metropolitan confines of Sydney

and is home to 44 trainers and 800 horses in training, including runners for Darley and Nathan Tinkler’s Patinack Farm. The so-called ‘Grand Plan’ for Warwick Farm will span five years and “see its future secured as a racing and training venue for decades,” according to the AJC. Inglis will buy nearly 24 acres of land currently owned by the

26 THOROUGHBRED OWNER & BREEDER INC PACEMAKER

AJC to build “a state of the art giant covered sale ring with bars, restaurants and stables”. The main grandstand will be renovated and enclosed, the betting ring covered, spectator seating installed in a new parade area, the racecourse revamped and new light training tracks constructed over about five kilometres.

Warwick Farm is more than double the size of Inglis’s current 11-acre Newmarket (Sydney) facility, described as “the only thoroughbred sales complex in the world to be located in a capital city.” Acquired by Inglis in 1917, the Newmarket facility has been the site for the company’s annual Easter yearling and broodmare sales.

Darley Japan aiming to make massive impact on domestic and global stage Sheikh Mohammed’s Far East operation has expanded in size and amassed a host of superbly-bred broodmares and top stallions while it awaits a new racing licence

I

n the nearly two years since Sheikh Mohammed’s Darley Japan Farm lost its licence to race, the operation has nearly doubled the broodmare band to just two shy of 100, with quality to match quantity. It has also acquired nearly 1,000 acres of new farm property on the island of Hokkaido and attracted 700 mares this year to the stud’s six resident stallions. “We’re proud of what we have, but we’re only getting started,” said Darley Japan’s Director of Stallion Operations, Shane Horan. “One of the great things about working for Sheikh Mohammed is you genuinely believe that anything is possible.” With hopes high that Darley Japan Farm will be awarded a new owner’s licence by November, Horan said “We are a stallion operation now, but our focus will be on our racing operation. The prize-money here is fantastic.” New recruits Darley Japan will be seeking broodmare additions at Tattersalls’ and Keeneland’s upcoming bloodstock sales, as well as transfers from Darley’s other farms. Two large boards in Horan’s office reveal how rich the blood of Darley Japan’s mare population already is. The first mare on the list is Abaya, a daughter of Storm Cat out of A P Indy’s Grade 1winning daughter Jilbab, and one of the last is Velvet Queen, a sister to Dubai World Cup winner Moon Ballad. A sampling of the other mares shows the names of Silent Sentinel, a sister to four-time Group 1 winner Mutafaweq; Spring Rain, a daughter of American juvenile champion filly Storm Song and one of four mares in the band by Dubai

Millennium; True Fantasy, a half sister to Fantastic Light by Seeking The Gold; Sharpwitted, a daughter of Sadler’s Wells and champion and Fillies’ Triple Crown winner Oh So Sharp; Chilly Start, by Caerleon out of Oaks winner Snow Bride, thus a half-sister to champion and Derby winner Lammtarra; Chansonnette, a Mark Of Esteem half-sister to Rahy and Singspiel; and Cunas, an Irish River mare out of 1,000 Guineas heroine Sayyedati. Potential Even Horan, who lives among the names and statistics every day, is excited by the potential of the Darley Japan enterprise, which has a staff of 75. A graduate of the thoroughbred management programme at Abingdon and Witney College, Horan worked for Coolmore before joining Darley in 2004 at Kildangan Stud. After three years, John Ferguson offered him the post in Japan, which Horan at first thought he would decline. “My initial reaction was right job, wrong country,” he said. “But it has turned out to be the right country. What we’re doing here is pioneering. It’s been very challenging but, at the same time, that’s been the most exciting part of it.” Horan has learned Japanese language and customs, and tries to integrate the latter with a more western breeding management style. Since he noted that many Japanese breeders are parochial in their view of racing, the stallions Darley Japan stands must either be well known domestically, or of outstanding international calibre, such as Fantastic Light.

Big in Japan: Fantastic Light

“What we’re doing in Japan is pioneering” Shane Horan In addition to Admire Moon and Fantastic Light, Darley Japan also stands Japan Cup winner Alkaased, a son of the popular Kingmambo; St Leger winner Rule Of Law, another son of Kingmambo whom Horan says Darley maintains is “the best looking horse in Japan”; and multiple Group 1 winners Storming Home, Diktat and Xaar, although Diktat has had some health issues that prevented him from covering mares this year. Deep Sky At the end of August, Darley Japan acquired 2008 Japanese Derby winner Deep Sky, a handsome chestnut son of the illfated Agnes Tachyon, who died in June of cardiac failure after hinting he could be the heir to his sire Sunday Silence’s legacy by leading all Japanese sires in 2008 at the age of ten. Produced by the British-bred Chief’s Crown mare Abi and

from the female family of American Fillies’ Triple Crown winner Chris Evert, Deep Sky earned over US$6 million and was the primary reason Agnes Tachyon became leading sire in Japan. For the future, Darley is demolishing old structures and building replacements on its new property, the former Nishiyama Farm, which will become home to mares and yearlings, and possibly the stallions and main offices. Darley could retain some of its six current farms of lesser acreage, while selling other properties, Horan said. He envisages a day when Darley Japan’s runners could help fuel the Godolphin stable, while simultaneously promoting Japanese breeding and racing. Additionally, he hopes Sheikh Mohammed will make his first trip to Japan since 1983, when he witnessed his High Hawk compete in the Japan Cup.

Talking to…

Daphne Lilley Long-standing ROA member recalls the heartbreak of a narrow Derby defeat, but revels in Sea The Stars’s wins Words: Tim Richards What was your reaction after being beaten a whisker in the Derby when Pretendre, in the colours of your late husband Claude Lilley, went down by a neck to Charlottown in 1966?

I was very sorry indeed. If you are well beaten you are inclined to accept it more easily. I realise that people in racing experience similar disappointments every day of the week, but to have been so narrowly beaten, and to know full well that you might have had a better chance of winning, was a bit of an ordeal. Lester Piggott had expressed himself keen to ride Pretendre, but your trainer Sir Jack Jarvis remained loyal to his young stable jockey Paul Cook. Would Lester have made the difference?

Sam Armstrong (Lester’s father-in-law) approached my husband after Pretendre had won the Observer Gold Cup to say Lester would like the ride. Naturally, my husband was only too happy to think that we would have Lester on board. After all, Pretendre was winter favourite for the Derby. I do think that if Lester had ridden him he would have won, as Lester always seemed to possess that magic trick. But, having said that, Paul Cook did ride him when he won the King Edward Vll Stakes at Royal Ascot afterwards, so he did get some compensation for Epsom. Jack Jarvis took such great care of our horse; he was so afraid he would be nobbled. This was in the days before sophisticated burglar alarms. Before the Derby he fixed up a system with a fishing line between Pretendre’s box and his bedroom, so if anyone had entered Pretendre’s box during the night Jack would have been alerted.

“Lester had that magic – I do think he would have won the Derby on Pretendre”

Is it true you had to go to the cinema to see a replay of the Derby because there was so little television coverage in those days?

Yes. I remember it was on the newsreel. We had to sit through the Chelsea Flower Show before they got to the Derby. It was then that it hit home how desperately close it had been. We certainly saw more of the race in the cinema than we had in all the excitement on the racecourse. There was consolation when you bred Snow Knight to win the 1974 Derby. Was it

28 THOROUGHBRED OWNER & BREEDER INC PACEMAKER

Daphne Lilley has been an ROA member for 62 years

disappointing he wasn’t carrying your colours?

It was in a way. Every year we picked out what we thought were the best yearlings to go into training. We sold the rest. When we decided to send this particular Firestreak colt to the sales, ‘Mac’ Nelson, trainer Peter Nelson’s wife, who used to buy their yearlings, approached my husband to ask him what was wrong with the horse and why were we selling it. My husband insisted there was nothing wrong and to prove it said that if Mrs Nelson bought him he would be happy to keep a half share. She duly bought Snow Knight and we were very relaxed in the knowledge that we would have him in training with Peter, only to discover later that the new Canadian owner wanted to keep 100% of the horse for himself. So, yes, it was a shame, having come so close to retaining half of him, that we weren’t part-owners when he won the Derby. How involved were you with pedigrees and the breeding when you and your husband owned Milford Stud?

In the days when my husband was disposing of older mares or buying new ones, Tattersalls did not include the progeny in their catalogues, so it was my job to research breeding records of the mares my husband was interested in. I used to spend hours going through the stud books. My husband started the stud in Derbyshire by buying the Aga Khan’s cast-off mares in foal to stallions he would never have been able to afford, thereby acquiring some of the best bloodlines possible, going right back to Phalaris and Nearco.

TALKING TO...

Do you still study pedigrees?

Not really, because I am not as au fait with the performances of modern stallions as I used to be. Since we sold the stud 20 years ago I haven’t really had anything to do with the breeding side. What is your involvement in racing these days?

Owning one horse and hoping it can do the best it can. And that responsibility currently rests with Convallaria, a six-year-old Cape Cross mare who was Geoff Wragg’s last ever winner before he retired. She is now in training with Chris Wall. I have certainly had some fun with her but I can afford to have only one horse in training at a time. I do remember Jack Jarvis, with whom we trained for some 25 years, apologising to my husband for having to increase his training fees from £14 a week to £16! In those days we would have about six horses in training. What made you choose Chris Wall as trainer of Convallaria when Geoff Wragg retired?

Geoff recommended him. I have been to Chris’s yard only twice since he took over Convallaria in November, as I sold my house in Newmarket and don’t get there as often as I used to. Do you still enjoy a day at the races?

I do, but not as much as I used to, because I can’t walk very far. I suppose you could say I am lazy, but how can one resist the excellent television coverage? I can see every meeting just sitting at home, though I do realise that is not very good business for the racecourses.

Harry and then his son Geoff, for 47 years, and if Geoff hadn’t retired I’d still be with him. Being a member of the ROA you receive a racecourse pass that enables you to go racing every day, even though it might happen to be Ayr one day and Brighton the next. There is also a camaraderie amongst members, which makes it fun. As the years have gone by I think the ROA has successfully broadened its horizons and moved with the times. You must have seen enormous changes in the sport. What, in your view, has been for the better?

That’s debatable. I’m sure one big advantage for trainers these days is being able to enter horses much closer to the race. In earlier days they used to have to enter three weeks in advance; now it is within days and in some of the big early closing races they can even make supplementary entries. At my age I tend to live in the past and I found racing in the past more enjoyable than I do today; you could move around more easily then. There weren’t the seething crowds you get now. And for the worse?

People walking through the enclosures with plastic mugs of beer is pretty unpleasant; you constantly find yourself in danger of having beer slopped all over you, even at Royal Ascot. I am afraid the changes at the new Ascot are for the worse. The new layout might attract more people to the races, but I don’t like it. Do you think the coverage of racing is good, on television and in the papers?

I would say since 1947, when I married my husband, who had joined in 1945.

It is first class. I watch most of the meetings and you always know they are all available on television. I particularly like Clare Balding, who acquitted herself so well presenting Royal Ascot this year after her operation.

Why have you stayed with the ROA so long and what are the advantages of being a member?

Where do you get your biggest thrill from racing these days?

I am a loyal person who doesn’t chop and change. I trained with the Wragg yard, first

On television, particularly watching the Classics and, of course, a horse like Sea The Stars.

On the brink Newmarket trainer John Gosden has huge concerns about the way racing is heading – “a semi-private club irrelevant to modern society” Words: Richard Griffiths | Photos: Arnhel de Serra

et again the future of racing seems to find itself at an uncertain crossroads, with debate as to how it should be ‘branded’ and prize-money on the decline. How much does this concern you, as a professional who keeps a close eye on the way it is run?

Y

Everybody has great concerns about the state of British racing – Flat racing, that is. Jump racing has made enormous progress over the last ten to 15 years. It has a very strong homegrown domestic product and a lot of that can be seen in the structure of its fixture list. It has this fantastic build up to Cheltenham and then just to finish that off you have got Aintree. So it has an incredible finale. However, Flat racing is in a parlous state. It needs a properly structured fixture list that creates interest that puts it in the public eye. So how do you go about creating that “properly structured fixture list”?

Right now we are in this unworkable situation where the number of fixtures is increasing – ten years ago it was 1,200, next year it will be over 1,500 – and yet the levy, our main source of funding, is in rapid decline. The talk is about £57 million in prize-money next year from the levy and I don’t think we will be able to hold the line at that for very long. This is down from £62.5 million. We are yet to see the impact of internet betting moving offshore. So it becomes quite clear that with more and more fixtures and less and less money, there is no way you can finance the fixture list as it is. Therefore, we have no choice but to make

30 THOROUGHBRED OWNER & BREEDER INC PACEMAKER

radical changes. We have got to set up key fixtures – core fixtures – throughout the year. These fixtures would help promote racing. Make it clear to people that it is a very exciting sport. Underneath that core tier, you have got to have a second tier of racing. Like the core fixtures, these would be funded through the levy, racecourses, sponsors and owners. And then we would have a third tier of fixtures funded outside of the levy. If fixtures are not making money for the levy, they have got to go. Instead, they can be funded through a commercial relationship between a racecourse and the betting industry. If the betting industry wants them for slots in their shops, fine. The question is, ‘What are they going to pay for them?’ The game has shifted and the money lies more in the picture rights. We have seen what has happened with Arena – they have just done a five-year deal with SIS worth £106 million. Northern Racing, similarly, will break away with their own picture rights deals. They didn’t secure all those tracks for the fun of it. The danger is that all the picture rights money goes straight to racecourses; it is outside of the levy circle and they have no obligations whatsoever to put any of it back into prize-money. The way you talk about Arena’s picture rights deal, it’s not as if you blame a racecourse group for doing such a deal?

No, it was inevitable. But I don’t have any problem talking to Arena and saying, ‘Right, you have got this money, where is it going as

THE BIG INTERVIEW

“Flat racing in Britain is in terminal decline now – I really do think it is that bad”

I think it is in terminal decline right now. I think it is that bad. I’m not going back on ‘what if, what if’ and ‘did we have the right leadership?’ We are where we are right now – September 2009. But we have got one year to 18 months to restructure this fixture list, to make it really work, or we are just a marginalised game of the past. Three years time will be way too late. So let’s get hold of the fixture list and completely radicalise it. Just do it. Is this a message that you think is understood by racing’s leadership?

regards prize-money?’ I don’t think this is such a problem. I think all courses want to attract some better horses and sometimes they get told by race-planning at the BHA that they can’t put on the racing they want because it clashes with somewhere else. You see a lot of complication with raceplanning and I think it needs a good kick up the backside. Many racecourses, like Chester, are frustrated that they cannot expand and improve the quality of their programme. Also, be aware, that the OFT wanted a more open and commercial market for fixtures between racecourses. This has not happened. Fixture bidding has been collusive and mismanaged. Do you think this third tier of fixtures would help solve the dilemma between giving owners and their horses sufficient opportunities at all levels, while at the same time ensuring what prize-money there isn’t spread too thinly?

If people want to race their horses and they enjoy it, that’s not a problem. You don’t want to legislate against bad horses. But if the betting industry wants them, they can pay for them by a commercial relationship with racecourses. Unless we get some sense to this very quickly the game in this country will be gone. Racing will become a semi-private club, increasingly irrelevant to modern society. Don’t let anyone be fooled into thinking racing can afford to go down that road. It will soon be a dead duck if it does. So how quickly do you think racing has to move on this?

No. I don’t think they get it. I find them too detached; there are too many people who do not understand racing. I think they should be at the coalface more. Come and watch the workings of a stable, come and watch us trying to get the whole show on the road, see what it costs. Go to stud farms and see the enormous cost of producing one horse capable of racing. I won’t name anybody specific because there is no point. Once that European court decision (the adverse data rights ruling of five years ago) came through, what financial levers have the BHA got? They don’t have any. They do, however, have the fixture list. But I am profoundly concerned about the BHA budget. I see no reason for them to be in offices in London, for instance, moving at huge cost from Shaftesbury Avenue to Holborn. They should be out with Weatherbys at an industrial site in Wellingborough, right slap bang middle of the country. Or Newmarket, or Lambourn. You don’t need all those high overheads, at London rates. Most of it is paid for by levy money and racehorse owners. A BHA budget of £34 million is profligate. When it comes to establishing an elite tier of fixtures, what kind of number are we talking about?

It’s not going to be that many. You are talking about quality here. But we need something that makes sense, some structure. What you see in the papers now is this great amorphous mass of racing. You see cards written in tiny print, in order to get them all shoved in. Personally, I’d axe half of them and have some more column space – space that could be used to talk about horses like Sea The

“We need a proper fixture list that will start to put the main contestants together”

Stars, probably the best horse I have seen since I came back to this country 20 years ago. Friends of mine from university, they have no interest in racing. To them it’s a bit stale, it doesn’t have a shape or form. It doesn’t have anything to capture the imagination. And quite frankly how do you capture the attention when you have got all those cards in there? It’s just like reading the financial lists. Unless you own stocks and shares, you turn the page over quick. Racing has a lot to offer but we make the worst of ourselves and at the moment we are failing the sport. We have got to re-shape ourselves and produce a proper fixture list that will start putting the main contestants together. That is what attracts people and that is what will filter through the system; people will start going racing everywhere, not just the main meetings. We had a shock this year when the BBC said horseracing was of little interest to their audience. Now Channel 4, subsidised by the Maktoum family, are compressing all the races into the early afternoon. What does that tell you about the appeal of our sport? Do you think there is enough focus on the horse itself when people talk about promoting racing?

There is none at all. The horse gets completely forgotten. I will go out now in the morning and you see the horses pulling up from a canter, a string of horses silhouetted against the skyline, with the mist…I tell you, it’s a stunning sight. Horseracing is a truly beautiful spectacle. We never sell it, we never make anything of the

34 THOROUGHBRED OWNER & BREEDER INC PACEMAKER

horse, not nearly enough, and it’s about time we did. Racing is an entertainment industry, not a subsidiary of the betting industry. Here we read too much into the betting all the time, it seems like the tail wags the dog. I know we are not running a church but, equally, racing should not be seen as just a betting medium. The big bookmakers want the racing product at the cheapest price, then work the maximum margin. I think Mark Johnston has made the point: we have made ourselves beholden to the betting industry – they want this slot filled, they want that slot filled, they want to drag people across the country to run for peanuts. And then what do they do? Siphon off our clients and get them on the machines, FOBTs. They will divert their customers away from horseracing because they won’t have to pay any levy – at a time when prize-money is falling at a faster rate than ever before. And now, with the exception of Coral, they are moving offshore to avoid paying the levy. They are public companies whose duty is to themselves and their shareholders, not racing. And we haven’t even started to see the worst of it yet. Already I go through The Racing Calendar and put a line through a card, I just won’t go there: it’s too far away, too expensive to get to and the prize-money is lousy. From the owner’s perspective, travel costs outweigh any benefit. How often do you find yourself doing that?

One in four meetings. I don’t even look at the races. And I will tell you, it will soon be one in two. I am not prepared to cost an owner that much money, to drive that far to run in a race that offers £1,000 to the winner. There is always a lot of comment about how Britain offers ‘the best racing in the world’. Can we afford to take that for granted, especially when we have recently had a Group 1 race like the Juddmonte with no home-trained runners?

Take the Derby this year, we finished eighth with Debussy. Crowded House (in sixth) was the only home-trained horse to finish in front of us. Is that healthy? Of course it’s not. It’s gravely concerning. I won a Group 2 in France with Debussy worth £220,000 to the winner. What’s the

THE BIG INTERVIEW

point of staying in this country? We’ve also won two Group 1s in Ireland this year and you target those races now. You don’t stay here, it’s not worth it. So how on earth do you persuade people to own horses in Britain?

Right now it is nigh on impossible. I bought one on spec at Doncaster (at the St Leger sale) and a month later I haven’t had a bite for it. We are continually relying on people who are not necessarily that young and they are in it because they have been in racing for years. But who is going to replace them? That is a problem that has been happening in America and it is going to happen here. The former generation of Hollywood all used to go to the track. I remember Liz Taylor, Cary Grant used to have pieces of horses with me, a couple of famous film-makers and producers. The film industry now? They’re not interested. That’s because racing in America, like here, hasn’t been marketed well. It’s just seen as an oldfashioned betting medium. How widespread do you think are the concerns that you have expressed?

I think we are all aware of it. Newmarket has had a lot of horses in it due to overproduction. I remember that in the last major recession of 1973/74 horse numbers dropped. You suddenly start staring at empty boxes and stable

staff start getting laid off. It’ll come, right across the country. All Newmarket trainers talk about this and we have enormous concerns that this industry doesn’t have a solid enough future for us to run our businesses. So what’s the next step?

In the end, you can’t have a theatre without a play and you can’t have a play without actors and actresses. So the strength lies with the owners and the trainers and the jockeys and the stable staff. We don’t have to race if we don’t want to. Why am I putting a line through one track in four? Because I have had enough. I am aware that a lot of tracks want competitive racing. But if they want that, they are going to have to do considerably better by us. Remember that most years it averages that 80% of horses are rated below 80 – that does not leave many quality horses to go round. There are ways of improving racing. I have always preferred sitting down with people and talking common sense first. I am not talking about boycotts or strikes – we did that once, we did it for a reason, to get attention, which we did. I have no intention of trying to start anything else of that nature. But you cannot go on assuming that everything will be paid for by owners and that all the shows can continue to be put on for crumbs or peanuts. Sorry, it won’t. Market forces need to come into play and

“Bookmakers are looking after themselves. Horseracing needs to do the same thing”

then you will see tracks fighting to get the right horses. They want to attract the good horses. From the Group 1s to a really solid 0-90 handicap, they want good, competitive racing and they can get that in a more commercial world. Right now a lot of the tracks that want to do that are being fettered, but on the other hand a lot of them are going along for an easy ride, not doing a damn thing other than soaking up Levy Board money. If racecourses are making a good turn out of picture rights money – hey, back into prizemoney. Simple as that. If not…don’t expect to see us. We’ll go elsewhere. Do you think that possibly a very important part of planning for the future is being overlooked? Namely that future generations of the Maktoum family and other Arab investors may not continue with the level of support and investment that we are currently seeing. Do you think racing is prepared for this?

I will say it and I don’t like saying it: I don’t think you will ever see that level of investment again, be it from the Maktoum family, Juddmonte Farms, or other international owners. They are racing their own horses and supplying hundreds of horses into the horse population. Horses are part of their psyche, part of their lives. They are deep in their culture and that is very important. But their children will have other interests, they have been brought up in a different, more modern world and so there will be a shift of interest. The next generation will operate on a much reduced scale. There is no doubt about that. It is common sense. And I am not trying to make a large noise about this. I am just stating the way things are. You won’t see the same number of horses in training, the number of broodmares, the number of stallions, the number of farms, the thousands of acres of land, the thousands of people employed. I think a lot of people find it convenient not to face the reality of what’s happening. You have got one group of people, and a group in Ireland, holding up the market. There is a limit to how long that can go on, be it in Europe or America. The longer this interview has gone on, the more your very real frustration is coming

through. You clearly feel the clock is ticking…

We are in a salvage situation now. This isn’t the time to sit on our backsides and have 15 more committees. This is a time for sitting down over the table and talking straight to each other. I am not really interested in talking to endless committees or another quango. I have done that. There are whole layers of people up there in Holborn, formerly Shaftesbury Avenue, who seem to operate at that level (of endless committees). We are down at the coalface and don’t have time for that – we’re all trying to keep a business on the road. But I am very clear of the need to sit down and restructure our fixtures: get the core fixtures in – Premier racing – with secondary racing and after that a third level outside the levy that people can enjoy and be part of, and satisfy the betting industry if they are prepared to pay. We have to promote racing as a sport, an entertainment, a day out, a spectacle that is attractive and interesting. Follow the key horses. Has Sea The Stars got the public recognition he deserves? Has he had the press and exposure a horse of his stature warrants? Of course betting is a key ingredient of racing, but it is not the only vision. Right now, enslaving ourselves solely to its demands has led us down a blind alley of diminishing revenues. We have to act now. We have got to get on to a commercial footing with the racecourses. The betting industry has already told us what they are doing. They are looking after themselves, not horseracing. Horseracing needs to start looking after itself. I

MARTIN PIPE’S LOVE AFFAIR

G “My Paget

love affair” Why has an oddball spinster who died in 1960 aged 54 captured Martin Pipe’s imagination? Words: Carl Evans | Photos: Carl Evans and Empics

38 THOROUGHBRED OWNER & BREEDER INC PACEMAKER

iven Dorothy Paget’s propensity for firing racehorse trainers it is intriguing to ponder how she and 15-time champion Martin Pipe might have fared. Pipe’s fabulous record would have made him an obvious candidate to train for Paget, who, nearly 50 years after her death, remains one of racing’s most famous owners. Her horses included five-time Gold Cup winner and Grand National hero Golden Miller, brilliant chaser Mont Tremblant, dual Champion Hurdle victor Insurance and 1943 Derby winner Straight Deal. She was also a champion owner, whose 50 wins in 1950/51was a record that stood until 2004/05, when horses owned by David Johnson – and predominantly trained by Pipe – mopped up 111 races. That level of success would surely have drawn Paget to Pond House, but would she have been satisfied with Pipe’s answers when horses were beaten? Would he have tolerated her demanding nature and nocturnal telephone calls? Pipe was 14 when Paget died a spinster aged

54 in 1960, and while the bookie’s son from Wellington never met the heiress who lived in Hertfordshire he has accumulated, through public auctions, a veritable museum of printed memorabilia relating to her life. His interest has developed in a relatively short time and coincides with a slightly-less hectic schedule since he gave up training in the spring of 2006. Pipe explains: “I went to Scotland on holiday two years ago and, while I’ve never been a great reader – other than veterinary books – the place where we stayed had a copy of Quintin Gilbey’s Queen of the Turf, a biography of Dorothy Paget. That was the beginning of my love affair.” Pipe claims no interest in pursuing artefacts such as colours, trophies, items of tack, any of her high-powered cars or the famous tweed coat she wore and referred to as ‘the speckled hen’. Paperwork, the written and often unwitting record of her life, is his passion, and an abundance of it survives. Code red

Pipe explains: “She had four secretaries during the day and three at night, and each one was known by a colour, so she would say, ‘Get Red to do that job, and Blue to do that one’. “Every piece of correspondence, and many bills, receipts or invitations that came into Paget’s life were filed by these secretaries, including daily reports of race meetings that were sent in for her to read. The secretaries also built up scrapbooks of newspaper cuttings relating to her horses, which included

showjumpers as well as racehorses.” Pipe is learning more about Paget’s life through delving into this paperwork, much of which is sitting in boxes on his floor. “I’ll never get through it all, but I often sit up at night reading through the correspondence because it is so interesting,” he says. In the age of the paper-free office Pipe understands the Paget method of record-keeping, his own diligence being derived from the bookmaking business run by his late father, Dave, whose empire at one time included 40 betting shops across England’s south-west. “Every penny that went through each till and every transaction had to be accounted for,” says Pipe. “There were no computers in those days and records were kept by hand. “We had to be vigilant to make sure no one had their hand in the till and to stop punters trying to pull a fast one.” Religious

Later, as a trainer, religious record-keeping enabled him to track every incident relating to the thousands of horses that passed through his hands during a 32-year career. That system remains in place at Pond House, where a record card commences the moment a horse enters the yard now run by Pipe’s son, David. So what items are among Pipe’s Paget memorabilia? Newspapers, several dated Saturday, March 24, 1934, and recording Golden Miller’s Friday Grand National triumph (note how it makes the front page of the paper), are obvious gems, as is a copy of The Sporting Life, costing tuppence and dated

MARTIN PIPE’S LOVE AFFAIR

“She slept during the day and bookmakers would allow her to bet post-race when she awoke”

Focus of Pipe’s fascination

1935, revealing in a sub-headline, ‘Owner not satisfied with trainer’s preparation’, a reference to Paget’s fury at trainer Basil Briscoe after ‘The Miller’ unseated in both the National and following day’s Champion Chase. Yet there are other more covert jewels, including a hand-written note to trainer Fulke Walwyn instructing him not to run several horses at a meeting if, upon his arrival, ground changes or if other unforeseen circumstances reduced their chance of winning. The note infers Paget would be backing the horses – a pastime in which she invested fortunes – and, given difficulties in communications, she insisted on non-runners and no-bet if conditions had altered after declaration. Her addiction to betting inevitably made her popular with the layers, and, according to Pipe, some wagers were taken from her post-race. He says: “Because

for her at Aintree, although he was to be told he would receive no gift and that he must not become ‘too gay’ ahead of the race. A blank cheque marked ‘Horse Account’ and signed by Paget, would have been worth a fortune while she was alive – now it nestles in Pipe’s hand. Giving a brief portrait of her character, Pipe says: “She was handed £1 million at the age of 21 and became a lady of leisure, although we have plenty of evidence that she gave money to charities. She enjoyed lots of sports, particularly tennis and motor racing, and invested heavily in a Bentley team, but it bored her because she could not bet on it, even though she was a very good driver herself.” Horseracing became her passion. Her first colours were registered in 1930 [her 25th year] and she became an owner of hundreds of horses, which was very unusual for a woman.” As a youngster Paget was a fine rider and sportswoman, with looks to match, but she became paranoid about certain aspects of life as she grew older, a famous indication of this being her insistence that one, sometimes two, spare Rolls Royce should follow her on journeys in case the vehicle she was travelling in broke down. Money could not give her long life, though, and she died of heart failure before being laid to rest at Hertingfordbury Church on February 9, 1960. The order of service is among Pipe’s collection. Eccentricities

she often slept during the day William Hill would allow her to place bets when she awoke and after races had been run.” Pipe has a window on her betting habit and verification she was not the most successful punter. One betting slip, dated December 30, 1933 and headed Jack Burns Bookmaker, reveals bets of £500 each-way on Golden Miller, the same sum on Tuppence and £300 each-way on Sir Troops. One of the three presumably made the frame, but this £2,600 investment still ended in a loss of £2,100. Another letter to a trainer informs him she is agreeable to Michael Scudamore riding a horse

Could Pipe have tolerated her eccentricities and trained her horses? “She hated men, other than Charles Rogers, her racing manager who she referred to as ‘Romeo’, but trainers have to put up with lots of things and I’m sure we would have found a way,” he says. “I was approached many years ago to train for a lady called Anne Jenks, who came to the yard with a clipboard and a list of items she wanted to discuss. This went on and on, and eventually she said: ‘I’ve noticed your horses don’t wear boots, bandages or nosebands, Mr Pipe’, to which I said, ‘Mrs Jenks, your horses can wear pink tassels if that’s what you want’. “I trained for Anne for many years and, while she always claimed she was my most difficult owner, I maintained I was the difficult one. In fact, she was very good to me and when the Cook Report was broadcast (which suggested the trainer had a win-at-all-costs attitude) Anne stood up for me whenever the matter was raised.” Pipe had his detractors, Paget had hers, and that shared circumstance may have resulted in a long association had they been racing giants in the same era. His achievements live on in film and results that can be easily accessed; much of hers is in boxes on his floor. It will be interesting to see whether he turns up fresh insight on the lady. I

omeone called me a miserable git recently,” says Julian Dollar, sounding only faintly surprised. For while others were partying in Deauville and Doncaster, Newsells Park Stud’s Manager was fretting over his yearlings. It proved worth the worry, because his youngsters have made a fabulously auspicious start to what many felt could be the most challenging sales season of their lifetime. Nine lots – among them a €600,000 Kingmambo filly – averaged €250,778 at Deauville, a performance better than any other vendor, while the Hertfordshire farm topped both days of Doncaster’s St Leger Sale, most notably with a £200,000 Dansili colt bought by Coolmore. As satisfying as anything about these successes is that after some early years in which sale ring triumphs were rare, Newsells Park Stud is – nine years after its inception – now firmly established as one of Britain’s top commercial breeders. All of which means that it is a far from morose Dollar who sits in the stud’s boardroom, gazing over 1,200 acres of paddocks filled by a collection of 90 broodmares and their foals who would be the envy of many other breeders. “I don’t mean to be grumpy,” adds Dollar with a smile. “But the sales are a nerve-wracking time and I haven’t got a great temperament for these moments. It can be very depressing and disappointing if you have a horse that you think is nice and other people don’t share your opinion, but at the same time it can be very rewarding. “The number one objective for us is to be profitable and, as you can imagine, it is hard to do that with a 1,200-acre operation.” You sense that Klaus Jacobs, the German-born billionaire who founded Newsells Park and died a year ago, would be delighted by events this year as his smiling portrait stares down from the boardroom wall.

Jacobs was born a rich man but built another fortune himself and – according to Forbes – earlier this decade there were only 292 wealthier people on the planet after a brilliant business career that had seen him control some of the biggest players in the coffee and chocolate industry, as well as the world’s biggest employment agency, Adecco. A brilliant man, he devoted much of his final years to the twin passions of following Victor Hugo’s maxim that “as the purse is emptied, the heart is filled” by giving much of his fortune away, while at the same time developing his new venture at Newsells Park Stud. Classic history

Based little more than half an hour north of London near Royston, the farm has a long history and in recent years was best known, when owned by Sir Humphrey de Trafford, as

the birthplace of 1959 Derby winner Parthia, and more recently Fares Stables under the stewardship of Lebanese politician Issam Fares. It was bought from Fares in 2000 by Jacobs, a former international dressage rider whose family had long owned Gestut Fahrhof in Germany, with a neighbouring 600-acre arable farm soon additionally snapped up. Sheikh Mohammed’s former stud manager Robert Acton was recruited and the broodmare band went from zero to nearly three figures in just a couple of years, focussing on recruits who had earned a rating of 90 or more on the track. Many did not have the pedigree to match their racecourse performance and, while many were successful, Newsells Park’s 2009 stud book shows that recent recruits have been more noticeable for their pedigree pages than talent on the track. “I think Mr Jacobs was 64 when he bought

Newsells and when you’re a wealthy man and want to enjoy a passion, you haven’t always got ten or 20 years to develop something,” says Dollar. “He came in with a bang and bought a lot of mares, and if you want to do that in one go you probably have to go to America to the Keeneland November Sale. That’s what he did. He bought some fantastic racemares, some weaker on pedigree than others. “Some worked out well, while an awful lot haven’t, and the policy over the last few years has been to cull some of those mares. “While we love to have good performers, we’re also now looking for lovely families. One of the great things in buying them is that other top breeders are helping develop the family for you as well. “John Warren came in before I arrived and was instrumental in switching the focus on what horses we should be buying. So a lot of credit for the development of the stud goes to John. I’d say 60% of our mares are still from those first batches bought in 2001 and 2002.” Stallion plans

Following Klaus Jacobs’s death aged 71, his son Andreas – who also oversees Gestut Fahrhof and Maine Chance Farm in South Africa – is helping to develop his father’s ambitions for Newsells Park. One of those was to stand stallions, an ambition achieved last year with the purchase of Coral-Eclipse winner Mount Nelson from Coolmore. The son of Rock Of Gibraltar covered 112 mares this year, many of whom had been bought specifically to support him. The Jacobs’ homebred Osorio died earlier this year and there are plans to grow the stallion roster. Mating plans are discussed at a board meeting in October, with additional advice coming from

pedigree guru and writer Bill Oppenheim, and Dollar admits their decisions are influenced by the Coolmore/Maktoum stand-off. “Our goal is to breed good horses but you have to have half an eye on the sales,” he says. “If you know the big two will lock horns on a Dansili, Oasis Dream or Pivotal it does play on your mind from a commercial point of view. But ultimately you want to use the best stallions, so we’ve supported Coolmore and Darley, as well as other studs, because they have the best sires. “Hopefully, Mount Nelson will also prove himself; nearly half his mares were black type performers or producers. For a horse standing for £10,000, it was one of the best books he could have had. We’ll be back to support him next year until his first two-year-olds get out there, but then he has to do it on his own.” Turnaround factors

As well as the broodmare band’s restructuring, Dollar attributes a number of other reasons for the stud’s turnaround. “Things have changed over the last three or four years and it’s been a combination of factors, not just one thing,” he says. “Half the farm had been pretty extensively farmed when owned by Fares Stables and the other half wasn’t even stud land. Some of it wasn’t even grassed, so that has taken seven or eight years to mature and we’re very careful how we graze it. “We put compost back on the land and let sheep run through it and get the best pasture we can. We’ve also made some changes to the feeding over the past three or four years. “We’ve seen a big change in the foal weights as the land has developed here. Bigger and stronger foals have become more athletic individuals as yearlings. “We’re very fortunate to have a fantastic team. I have an estate manager who lives and breathes

the place, a broodmare manager who is second to none and a yearling manager who loves the job. I don’t think there are many better people at putting the final touches in before the sales.” Opportunity knocks

“We have our best crop of yearlings ever – unfortunately in the worst financial year”

After five years as a “semi-professional” eventer, which included two appearances at Burghley, Dollar went on to spend seven years as Assistant Manager at Cheveley Park Stud and another two years working for the late Tony Ryan at Castleton Lyons in Kentucky, before he was asked if he would be interested in taking over at Newsells Park. It was an opportunity he thought too good to turn down. “Klaus Jacobs was an exceptional man to work for, a brilliant businessman with great vision,” adds Dollar. “I think sometimes we forget in this country how lucky we are to have people like the Jacobs family or the Thompsons (at Cheveley Park) involved in racing. They really should be embraced when they come into the industry. “It’s easy to knock operations and I’m sure there are still critics of Newsells Park. But I think we should remember when someone comes in and pumps millions of pounds into the industry by creating a Newsells Park and buying mares and stock, they are supporting everybody at a high level.” The sales season is far from over and, after a foray to Baden Baden, sights are firmly focussed on Newmarket, where 29 yearlings are heading to books one and two, and there will be disappointment if there are not some fireworks at Park Paddocks. “When we had our successful sales at Deauville and, to an extent, Doncaster, I was worried I’d weakened the October 1 draft to strengthen the other sales,” says Dollar. “But I recently had a look through them with Nick Wingfield Digby, who helps us out, and resident vet Ian Cameron

and the rest of the team, and have to say there are five or six there about whom you couldn’t find anything better – they are outstanding. It’s just one of those years when we always recognised we had a particularly good foal crop last year and, fortunately, they’ve gone on.” A striking Danehill Dancer colt out of Rave Reviews, a Listed winner bought for 320,000gns four years ago, is described as “one of the most unbelievable looking horses I’ve seen, an absolute standout”. Look out, too, for a Dalakhani half-brother to last year’s Chesham Stakes runner-up Seaway and a Pivotal half-sister to Guineas runner-up Snow Ridge. Cautiously optimistic

“It’s always nice when your best yearlings match their pedigrees – everything has just clicked and we’re proud to be taking them to Newmarket,” says Dollar. “Even if we end up racing some of them, well, you wouldn’t mind with horses like that. It could be argued we’re a bit unfortunate to have the best crop of yearlings we’ve ever had in the worst financial year we’ve been through.” Newsells Park’s policy is to offer every yearling – although in future the occasional wellbred filly may be retained – with a conservative reserve and to race those that do not reach expectations in the sale ring. “We’ve gone into each sale with a value that we’d have given them last year and then knocked about 15% off,” adds Dollar. “But you never really know where you are with a horse until you’re just about to go into the ring. We were realistic at Deauville and Doncaster, and it will be the same at Newmarket.” It will be a pressurised couple of weeks for Newsells Park’s team at Tattersalls but, with some stunning yearlings to offer, their manager could be looking a little bit less miserable by the time the sale ends.

TASTY PRIZE UP FOR GRABS

Promotional material from Newsells Park Stud tends to get a better welcome than from some of its contemporaries, for regular recipients know there will be a little sweetener inside. Andreas Jacobs is chairman of Barry Callebaut, the world’s biggest industrial chocolate supplier, so the stud tries to send out an appropriate gift with a flyer advertising its yearling draft. Last year it was a chocolate CD but this time it was a specially packaged bar that included a Willy Wonka-style golden ticket, offering the chance to win £10,000.

To land the bounty, one buyer of a Newsells Park yearling from each sale (it was Carlos Laffon-Parias at Deauville and Eamonn Reilly at Doncaster) is randomly picked and if their purchase wins a Racing Post Yearling Bonus race, or a class B contest in France, they will collect £10,000. “We’ve slightly piggybacked the Racing Post Yearling Bonus scheme,” says Dollar. “But we’d been thinking about our own Golden Bonus for a while, so thought why not do it as an addition to the other scheme.”

But even if you don’t own the lucky golden ticket, it might be worth calling in at Newsells Park’s boxes at Tattersalls. “Our hospitality box is run on a coffee shop theme because the two main things the Jacobs family have done is coffee and chocolate, so you’ll always have a warm welcome, a seriously good cup of coffee and plenty of chocolate,” adds Dollar. “My wife likes to do the baking for Part 1 and does a mean carrot cake, brownies and all the things that are bad for you. I get a lot of regular visitors!”

The Dream goes on Arcano, Showcasing and Monitor Closely keep Oasis Dream’s name in lights over a range of distances Words: Andrew Caulfield | Photos: George Selwyn asis Dream’s star continues in the ascendant and the Juddmonte stallion has enjoyed another fabulous few weeks, with his progeny excelling over an eye-opening range of distances. The nine-year-old son of Green Desert has two sons in Arcano and Showcasing – incidentally first and second in a Newbury maiden in June on their debuts – who are at the top of the pecking order in the six-furlong juvenile division. Showcasing’s decisive success in the Group 2 Gimcrack Stakes was followed a few days later by Arcano’s Group 1 Prix Morny triumph; both colts exhibit plenty of pace, like their sire, although connections will surely be hoping they develop into Guineas candidates next year. And yet it’s not all about speed or precocity with Oasis Dream’s sons and daughters. Following Midday’s gallant second in the Oaks and subsequent Nassau Stakes victory, Monitor Closely has won a Great Voltigeur and finished an honourable third in the St Leger. No-one will be surprised in future when the former champion sprinter sires a middle-distance winner. Oasis Dream now has five stakes winners over a mile and a quarter or further to his name, and 13 stakes winners from his first crop of 109 foals, nearly 12% – a fine figure these days. It is important to remember Oasis Dream’s first three dams were by 12 furlong winners, in

Dancing Brave, Mill Reef and Busted. While his dam, Hope, never raced, his second dam Bahamian stayed 15 furlongs and his third dam Sorbus was second in the Irish St Leger. This stamina-laden bottom half to his pedigree occasionally proves dominant, especially when mated to mares by the likes of Niniski and In The Wings – and sometimes when the mare isn’t so stoutly bred. Perhaps it will pay to keep an eye on Oasis Dream’s son Hunting Tartan, who didn’t attract a lot of attention when he made a winning debut in September. Admittedly, the race was only at Chepstow and admittedly the time was a good bit slower than the other division, but he won in very good style from a brother to a Classic filly. The interesting thing about Hunting Tartan is he is out of a daughter of Zafonic. Oasis Dream has eight foals out of daughters of this majestic 2,000 Guineas winner. Two of them died young but five of the other six have won, including Showcasing and his talented sister Bouvardia. Oasis Dream also has two daughters with Zafonic mares as their second dams and both of them – Sugar Free and French-trained Dreamt – have earned black type. Add in the fact mares by Zafonic’s brother Zamindar have produced the very useful On Our Way to Oasis Dream and the smart Deposer to another son of Green Desert, and you start to have a promising relationship. Daughters of Selkirk are also shaping up very well with Oasis Dream, with Monitor Closely and Main Aim among their three stakes winners.

£300,000 2-Y-O Stakes at Doncaster, it brought back memories of his sire, Wiseman’s Ferry. The son of Hennessy and the Silver Deputy mare Emmaus ranked among the top half-dozen colt foals sold in the USA in 1999, at $775,000. It was easy to understand the enthusiasm for the colt as he was by a son of Storm Cat, a stallion who had sired three Group/Graded winners from the colt’s second dam, La Affirmed. One of these three was Bernstein, who had briefly looked a star in the making in the months preceding the sale of the Hennessy foal. Ferry cross the Atlantic

With the Bernstein bubble burst, the Emmaus colt struggled when re-offered at the yearling sales. Led out unsold at $625,000 at Keeneland’s July Sale, he then sold for $300,000 at the September Sale. Sent to Ireland to join Bernstein’s trainer Aidan O’Brien, Wiseman’s Ferry proved useful but inferior to another of O’Brien’s Hennessy colts, Johannesburg. With his limitations exposed, Wiseman’s Ferry returned to his birthplace, where he became a dual Derby winner. That description flatters him, as his Derby successes were in a pair of Grade 3 events – the Lone Star Derby and the West Virginia Derby. Those efforts earned him an International Classification rating of 112. Sadly, he managed only two starts at four and when he retired to stud at five it was in New York State, rather than Kentucky. Swilly Ferry comes from his third crop. Wiseman’s Ferry now stands for $3,000 in Pennsylvania, having sired nothing of note in his first two crops, but in Swilly Ferry he has sired a colt who has inherited some of the speed and toughness which helped make Hennessy hard to beat as a juvenile.

sires’ list, this position reflecting the domestic stakes successes of such as Art Connoisseur, Sent From Heaven and Cima De Triomphe. Cross with plenty to offer

Interestingly, Swilly Ferry and Sent From Heaven, who secured a dramatic success in the Group 3 Prestige Stakes at Glorious Goodwood, were both sired by grandsons of Storm Cat, as was the 2008 American Grade 3 winner Ten Meropa, another good winner out of a Danehill mare. Danehill mares also enjoyed marked success with Giant’s Causeway, a son of Storm Cat, in 2008, producing the Dewhurst Stakes winner Intense Focus and the Australian Group 1 winner Juste Momente.This cross clearly has plenty to offer and there is no escaping the fact that the first three black-type horses by Giant’s Causeway’s Classic-winning son Footstepsinthesand are all out of Danehill mares. In addition to the progressive Sent From Heaven, they are Chachamaidee, third in the Group 3 Albany Stakes, and Walkinonthemoon, beaten only a neck in the Woodcote Stakes. Steinbeck, another Footstepsinthesand colt with a Danehill dam, made an impressive winning debut at Naas in May but hasn’t been seen out since. These four winners come from Footstepsinthesand’s first eight foals out of Danehill mares, which should guarantee that the 2005 2,000 Guineas winner will be receiving plenty more Danehill mares in the future. Giant’s Causeway is already being billed as a promising sire of sires, thanks not only to Footstepsinthesand but also to Shamardal, who played such a major role in highlighting Giant’s Causeway’s potential. Interestingly, both of these sons of Giant’s Causeway suffered injuries soon after their Classic victories which, though said not to be serious, were serious enough to persuade their connections to retire them. Both were soon winging their way to Australia in time for the 2005 stud season, when Shamardal commanded a fee of Aus$55,000 and Footstepsinthesand stood at half that price. It is rather worrying that, up to September 13, neither of these stallions had been represented by a stakes winner from his first Australian runners, now in their second season (though Shamardal’s daughter Marquardt failed by only a short head to land a Group 2 event in March). Fortunately, the signs are much more promising in the northern hemisphere. Shamardal, as an unbeaten two-year-old by an unbeaten two-year-old, could be expected to sire juvenile Group winners and he already has his first two in the bag, thanks to Shakespearean (conqueror of the subsequent French Group 3 scorer Buzzword in the Group 3 Solario Stakes) and Arctic (Group 3 Round Tower Stakes). Another of Shamardal’s sons, Noble Alpha, ran well to finish second to Hearts Of Fire in the Group 3 Zukunfts-Rennen in September, with

50 THOROUGHBRED OWNER & BREEDER INC PACEMAKER

Zazou, a winning son of Shamardal, in fourth. Shamardal’s figure of seven domestic winners from 33 runners isn’t stunning but many of the non-winners have raced only once or twice, so time should see that winners-to-runners figure improve substantially. Shamardal has also had several winners overseas, including the French colt Lope de Vega, who looked a potential Group horse when making it two wins from two starts at Longchamp on September 13. Another of Darley’s first-crop sires, Dubawi, must be delighting Sheikh Mohammed, as the son of his beloved Dubai Millennium notched up his 22nd individual winner when Pherousa scored at Bath on September 4. Even better was to follow a few days later when Sand Vixen ran out a very smooth winner of the Group 2 Flying Childers Stakes, to

become Dubawi’s first Group winner. The Godolphin team then had to wait little more than 24 hours for Group winner number two, in the shape of Poet’s Voice, who made all to land the Group 2 Champagne Stakes. The neat, strong, muscular Dubawi possesses little of Dubai Millennium’s size and scope, but Poet’s Voice appears to have inherited some of his grandsire’s physique and keen temperament. Before leaving the topic of Dubawi, his Group-placed son Dubawi Phantom has an interesting pedigree because he is out of an In The Wings mare. Because Dubawi’s dam, the Oaks d’Italia winner Zomaradah, was bred along similar lines to In The Wings’s dam High Hawk, the inbreeding in Dubawi Phantom’s pedigree includes 4 x 4 to Shirley Heights, 5 x 4 to Sunbittern and 5 x 5 x 4 to Mill Reef. Finally, Motivator has hit form lately, being represented by his first Group winner when Pollenator won the May Hill Stakes. Prompter, another early winner, is also promising. I

A time to move on Fall in trade means that making a profit on yearlings is not the priority this year – finding them new homes is Words: Ed Prosser | Photos: George Selwyn f all the dramatic moments at British sales over the last 12 seasons, the events of last year stand out more than any other. At a time when we were used to prices rising annually as a matter of course, the reversal of last autumn saw yearlings regress to the values of five or six years ago. Official clearance rates dipped to 50% or worse as successive lots failed to muster a single bid. It made for depressing viewing. But then 2009 began in admirable fashion, as vendors adopted an air of realism: if they put a horse into a sale, it was there to sell and there was an acceptance that profit was no longer an overriding motive. As a consequence, this will be a financially testing year for all of those involved in the business. Agents are short of orders and the sales companies, already preoccupied with recouping existing debts, face a sharp fall in commission. As the main autumn sales season approaches, Tattersalls and Doncaster have turned over £41,407,450 so far this year, which is down a third on the £61,582,865 spent at the two venues in the same period just two years ago. No wonder vendors are now awaiting anxiously the coming weeks at Goffs and Tattersalls. What heart, if any, can they take from this year’s trade at Doncaster’s St Leger Sale, which has always had its loyal local following and specific attraction to those looking for precocious juvenile types? The key indicators dropped by between 22% and 30% at the now two-day sale, an acceptable decline given that last year’s event had preceded

the worst of the economic downturn. Less welcome was the 79.4% clearance rate, which was the lowest in modern times. The number of yearlings sold – 369 – was also the smallest number since 1987. This year trainers were noticeably more reticent about buying ‘on spec’ and Doncaster’s £20,000 median suggests many expensively bred and bought youngsters were not recouping their costs. Even fewer were achieving that target at Doncaster’s second division St Leger Festival Sale, added to the company’s calendar in 2007, when the main event moved to late August. The Festival median fell by 41% to £6,000. The £836,200 turnover was 61% lower than at the inaugural sale in 2007, while the £8,198 average has fallen by 45% over the same period. If you take the combined St Leger and Festival turnover of £10,442,700, then there has been a 41.7% fall in just two years. And the combined average of £22,171 is down by 30.7%. Doncaster Bloodstock Sales is likely to look into the future of the Festival Sale, which some participants felt could be held on a day away from racing, or otherwise be blended in to either the main St Leger Sale or Doncaster’s October Sale. But the yearling action is really just beginning in Europe. The first three weeks of October will tell us the true health of our bloodstock markets, but this is a time for realism. Moving on horses must be a consignor’s top priority.

Judging the Doncaster St Leger Sale at all levels of the market Yes, it’s that time of year again when we bring the deciles out to play. To recap, our exclusive tables break down the market into ten different sections: Decile 1 is the top 10% of the market, Decile 2 is the second highest level, all the way down to Decile 10, which represents the bottom 10% of the market at a particular sale. Looking at the deciles for the Doncaster St Leger Sale, it becomes clear just how tough things are this year. All levels of the market saw dramatic drops in trade compared to 12 months earlier. Worst hit was the bottom of the market, as the three lowest deciles recorded hits of 25.28%, 26.27% and 24.99%.

Doncaster: a sideways look Elusive City proves the most profitable stallion at the St Leger sale, while the tables of most profitable and least successful pinhooks reveal a huge range It doesn’t matter where they are being sold, it is a noteworthy achievement for a stallion to see six progeny auctioned for nearly ten times the fee at which those yearlings were conceived. That was the achievement of Elusive City, now at Haras d’Etreham, at the St Leger Sale. His six yearlings sold – seven were offered – achieved

9.69 times his 2007 covering fee of £5,369. Even though only nine of his 16 yearlings offered found buyers, Kheleyf also proved value for his supporters by commanding a profitability rating (shown in the extreme right column on the table below) of 7.18 times his 2007 covering fee of £3,356.

Arqana Deauville Aggregate €39,369,000 (-1.5%) Sold 343 (74.7% clearance rate) Average €114,778 (+3.4%) Median €75,000 (+7%) Reaction

Marco Bozzi, Italian agent: “Unlike in Britain, Ireland or Italy, the French market is going up at the moment and Deauville is very different from everywhere else. They attracted a very international clientele and I found it harder to buy than last year. I normally try to buy half a dozen there but got only two this time.” Highlights

G Herve Barjot, racing manager to Sean Mulryan, was celebrating the sale-topping €900,000 Storm Cat colt. The half-brother to Electrocutionist was bought by the Darley team. G Sheikh Mohammed and his brother

Hamdan were both at the sale and bought 27 lots for €7,520,000. In 2008, they bought 25 yearlings for €8,060,000. G Marc de Chambure’s locally-based Haras d’Etreham topped the vendors’ list, selling 46 lots for €5,769,000 at an average price of €125,413. Eric Puerari’s Haras des Capuccines came next, selling 39 lots for €4,171,000, averaging €106,949. G Away from the Coolmore and Maktoum teams, Agence FIPS was the leading buyer. Gilles Forien’s agency was bought in May this year by Jean-Pierre Deroubaix’s French Bloodstock Agency, with Herve Bunel now the main sales representative. FIPS bought 20 lots for €2,798,000.

Judging the Arqana Deauville sale at all levels of the market The above quote about Deauville being different to anywhere else is given credence by our decile tables, which show how trade has fared at all levels of the market. Whereas most global yearling auctions have seen drops in trade across the spectrum, it is only among the top 10% of the market – Decile 1 – and the second top 10% that posted declines on last year, falling by 1.44% and 2.61% respectively. Elsewhere at the sale, the middle market proved strong, with Deciles 5, 6, 7 and 8 showing the best increases on last year. Any level of any auction which this year shows a 9.95% increase – as Decile 5 did at Deauville – is noteworthy.

Deauville: a sideways look There were significantly fewer pinhooked yearlings than at Doncaster but only four of them failed to make a higher price than their cost as foals Although there were only 36 pinhooked yearlings offered at Arqana’s Deauville auction, compared to 126 at Doncaster’s St Leger Sale, those put through the ring in France fared that little bit better, with only four yearlings failing to make more than their foal price – 11% – compared to 28 at Doncaster (22%).

Of the most profitable stallions, Deauville proved a real boost for Archange d’Or, who saw four yearlings from his first crop realise over 30 times his stallion fee in his debut season. Having topped the Doncaster profitability tables, Elusive City fared almost as well at Deauville, his six sold realising 14 times his fee.

star Don’t Tell Mary to win the Hilary Needler Stakes at Beverley. Dascombe’s new boss Michael Owen was at the sale’s first day and, through agent Ed Sackville of Kern Lillingston, the trainer bought a £24,000 Striking Ambition filly and a £20,000 daughter of Intikhab to head to Manor House Stables in Cheshire.

G Exactly ten years after Kyllachy sold for 36,000gns at Doncaster’s St Leger Sale, his yearling sibling by Dubai Destination changed hands for £17,000 when bought by Middleham-based trainer Jedd O’Keeffe.

G The £36,000 sale-topper produced a solid pinhooking success for the Browne family’s County Tipperary-based Mocklershill Stables. The Haafhd colt, who was bought by trainer Kevin Ryan, had been purchased for 5,500gns as a foal by Harley Park.

Alongside the action from Deauville, Doncaster and Keeneland in recent weeks, there have also been chances to buy yearlings at Ocala in Florida. The Ocala Breeders Society August Sale looked to have been largely given a wide berth by some of the European breeze-up consignors and trainers who have frequented the event in the past. Their absence may have played a part in the sale’s figures falling sharply. The turnover of $7,588,400 was down 36.6% on last year and the lowest at the event for 18 years. The $11,463 average dropped by 29.1% and the $5,000 median by 28.6%. The sale was topped by a Medaglia D’Oro filly bought by Charlotte Weber’s Live Oak Plantation. Figures were also down at Baden-Baden, where agent Jurgen Albrecht dominated the action. Buying for Russian owner Rashit Shaykhutditnov, Albrecht paid €240,000 for the sale-topping Monsun colt from the family of Stacelita.

THE SPECIAL SECTION FOR ROA MEMBERS

July Course joins elite list Newmarket track recognised for excellence and joins 14 other UK racecourses as holder of the coveted ROA Gold Standard Award

N

ewmarket’s July Course has become the latest track to achieve ROA Gold Standard Award status. The award recognises overall excellence in the raceday experience for owners, their horses and stable staff. ROA Council member and Gold Standard Committee member Dena Arstall presented the commemorative plaque to the racecourse executive at their final meeting of the season. She said: “We are thrilled to be able to award the Gold Standard to Newmarket’s July Course. “As Newmarket is the headquarters of Flat racing and the focus of a global bloodstock industry, it is entirely fitting that Gold Standard status has now been achieved. Stephen Wallis and his team have worked very hard in consultation with the Gold Standard Committee to offer a first class raceday experience for owners with runners.

“In particular, Stephen has achieved the commendable feat of becoming the first racecourse Managing Director to attain the ROA Gold Standard for two different courses, having also secured the award at Epsom Downs during his previous tenure there.

Their executive and sponsorship contributions for the same period amount to 27.5% of their overall prize-money pool. Their average prize-money per fixture for the past 12 months, as listed in the Racing Post, is £297,252, putting them third among the Category A courses.

Dena Arstall presents Newmarket’s July Course executive and staff with their Gold Standard Award plaque

Badge Scheme boosted The Racecourse Badge Scheme, which allows owners free admission to over 1,200 fixtures each year, will offer even greater benefits in 2010, when qualifying ROA members will enjoy free admission even when they don’t have a runner. In a further boost, the scheme has been expanded so that members now need only to be a registered owner with 50% of a horse in full training, or shares which amount to 50%. The offer was only previously open to members with a whole horse in training, but this reduction in the qualifying criteria means that, in the case of a racing partnership for example, both nominated partners will now qualify for this unique benefit. We hope members who are

“We hope he will be able to achieve a notable treble, in working towards the Rowley Mile course joining the Gold Standard ranks in the future.” Newmarket’s combined prizemoney for both its courses for the past 12 months stands at over £11.9 million.

joining the scheme for the first time next year will make full use of this excellent benefit. Members who are already on the badge scheme are asked to re-apply for the 2010 scheme as soon as possible. Application forms have been posted out and are available on request from the ROA office, or can be accessed via www.racehorseowners.net. Successful applicants will have their Horseracing Privilege Card electronically activated and will be sent a letter of confirmation and fixture booklet in December. Places for the scheme are limited, so members are advised to apply as soon as possible. The ROA is grateful to the Racecourse Association and all the participating racecourses for their support of the scheme.

Exciting insurance possibility The ROA is exploring a potentially exciting development regarding bloodstock mortality insurance that combines insurance cover for life-saving surgery. But we need your help to make it viable. That is why we are circulating a questionnaire to all members to assess the possible level of take-up to an exclusive bloodstock insurance scheme that would also provide cover for life-saving surgeries such as colic or long-bone fracture repair. It could be that other conditions requiring major surgery are made available to our membership. In most cases the approximate total cost of an operation for colic surgery and hospitalisation is at least £5,000 – and that’s when it is possible to find an insurer. However, we believe we could

use the bulk buying capability of the ROA to obtain this insurance for members and also to achieve a really competitive premium for normal mortality risks. To develop this, we need to find out how many of our members may be interested in buying bloodstock mortality insurance that includes cover for major life-saving conditions that require expensive treatment. The more people who are, the greater the saving. We would urge members who are interested in this proposal to take the time to complete the questionnaire – which appears as a loose insert in this magazine and can be downloaded at www.racehorseowners.net. We will report its findings to members in our December issue.

Silk co-opted on to Council Professor David Silk, who lost his place on the Racehorse Owners Association Council after the elections in June, has been coopted back on to the Council. Professor Silk is pre-eminent in the fields of gastroenterology and clinical nutrition, and his specialist medical knowledge has been invaluable to the racing industry in a number of areas, including jockeys’ nutrition. He also represents the ROA on the Animal Health Trust’s Council of Management. Michael Harris, ROA Chief Executive, said: “David has been a racehorse owner for 25 years and has worked tirelessly on the Council since 2005. His expertise has been a huge asset to the ROA and the decision has therefore been taken to co-opt him on to the Council, which allows us to continue to benefit from his outstanding knowledge.” Professor Silk said: “I am delighted to be able to carry on my work on the ROA Council and look forward to continuing to serve the association and its members.”

British Bloodstock Marketing – actively promoting the British thoroughbred industry Welcoming international clients from as far afield as Oman and Korea, BBM is taking a proactive role to showcase UK-bred and sold horses in an expanding global marketplace

French breeders enjoying a BBM organised visit to Newmarket in June, which included a tour of local studs

B

ritish Bloodstock Marketing, now established in its Newmarket offices at 190 High Street, has throughout the year been actively promoting both Britishbred and British-sold bloodstock on a national and international level. Its current focus is on the yearling sales and fully supporting the self-help initiative of the Racing Post Yearling Bonus Scheme. Amongst the initiatives to support the British breeders, BBM sees value in welcoming international professionals to Britain, showing them highlights of the industry, the excellent facilities and breeding operations.

The most recent visiting delegations were from Oman in August and the Korean Racing Association in July. BBM also invited 25 prominent French breeders to Newmarket for three days in June. The French TBA trip included a two-night stay at the Jockey Club Rooms, together with visits of studs and facilities. The initiative was kindly supported by the breeders and BBM are looking into further developing the visits, incorporating other regions around the UK. BBM, through meetings with its shareholders, finds direct contact with owners, trainers, agents and professionals, both in Britain and abroad, a valuable and cost-effective use of its time

in the promotion of British-bred and -sold bloodstock. Anna Powell has been actively promoting the sales in France, Spain, Italy, Scandinavia, Hungary, Turkey and the Middle East. Gavin Pritchard-Gordon has been representing the British racing and breeding industry in Oman, Russia and India. The BBM network and database now has 5,000 contacts from 94 countries and is proving an invaluable platform from which to send out our annual yearbook, which brings the British-bred and -sold highlights of the year to the direct attention of potential investors. The database is also useful for online marketing campaigns,

like the monthly e-newsletter sent out, which features the British-bred success of the month, upcoming sales and international reports. BBM has joined forces with Irish Thoroughbred Marketing to promote the new Breeze-Up Bonus and Racing Post Yearling Bonus Schemes, both positive examples of self-help in the current economic climate. The BBM team is ultimately here to help promote the British thoroughbred industry and will be represented at the sales. We welcome your ideas and feedback on how to improve the work we are doing, and look forward to hearing from you. BBM can be contacted on 01638 675940 or by email at info@bbm.gb.com.

Nomination agreements

Stud Staff Award: September Kevin Watson – Banstead Manor Stud The September winner of the TBA Stud Staff Award is Kevin Watson, who has spent 32 years working in the breeding industry, 22 of them at Juddmonte Farms. On leaving school at 16, Watson worked as a student stud hand at

Derisley Wood Farm until 1986, when he moved to Eagle Lane Farm in Dullingham, when it was purchased by Juddmonte. There he worked alongside such greats as Posse, Glint Of Gold, Siberian Express and Deploy, until relocating to Banstead Manor, where he now attends the majority of the STUD STAFF coverings at AWARD Banstead. SEPTEMBER 2009 Stud Groom Jim Power describes Watson as an excellent horseman, dependable, conscientious and someone who can be relied on to complete any job to a high standard.

for non-members. Application forms are available from Christine Standley at Stanstead House on 01638 661321 or by email – christine@thetba.co.uk. Places are limited to 65, so book early!

He adds that Watson has a strong work ethic, never having had a day off sick, and once walked 15 miles into work from home when his car broke down, still arriving on time. In support of their nomination, the words of Juddmonte Farms demonstrate the TBA Award Scheme’s importance in recognising the contribution made by stud staff. They said: “Kevin epitomises the unsung hero of our industry, turning up for work each day, taking a pride in his work and maintaining the high standards that are synonymous with Juddmonte Farms. This is one of the reasons why he is well respected by all of his colleagues and clients, and has been nominated for this award”.

Significant changes have been made to the TBA’s nomination agreements for the first time since 1994, to take into account agents’ commission and the arbitration service offered in the event of a dispute. The updated agreements can be purchased from the TBA for £1.50 plus VAT. Alternatively, for those studs in the UK whose stallions attract larger books of mares, a licence fee of £100 per year can be purchased, together with a payment of 75p per nomination agreement. The fact that the agreements are used by all the major studs is testimony that they have stood the test of time. They give both the vendor and purchaser piece of mind. Contact Christine Standley at the TBA to buy them.

Next Generation Committee Giving youth an industry voice The Racing For Change project must focus on getting more people on to the racecourse, and not pander to the bookmakers’ wishes

By Daniel Polak, Scarvagh House Stud

I am not a crony of Brian’s, an old traditionalist who believes change is spawned by the Devil and must be avoided at all costs, but I cannot help but feel that Racing For Change is missing the point. Racing must change, evolve, and grow up into the 21st century, on this we all agree. However, in all discussions I have read to date, the majority of emphasis is put on ‘developing a proactive relationship with the betting industry’, which I find ludicrous. Any reliance upon bookmakers is misplaced. To rely on their input into major decisions for the sport is to make choices not for the benefit of horses, owners or the racegoing public, but for the online and betting shop punter. Betting firms are keen to help the future of the racing industry for as long as it helps their bottom line. Then it’s: “Bye Darling, I’m off to Gibraltar”.

We must be in control of our own destiny and make changes that benefit the industry. There will always be gambling on horseracing, so sort the sport out for its own sake and let gambling follow. We mustn’t let the tail wag the dog. As a result, the main aim of any rebranding exercise must be to get more people to the racecourse and, therefore, involved in racing, whether it’s for the sport, to socialise or to gamble. The racecourses must ensure that racegoers have the most enjoyable day out possible and leave wanting to return soon. Only at the racecourse (not in the armchair or the betting shop) do you become addicted to the sport, its unique and charming nature, and it is the people there who will aspire to be owners and breeders of the future – which is what the sport craves. To do this racing must exploit its current wealth of untapped resources. We must illuminate ambassadors who love the sport

and who are in the public eye, be it Michael Owen, Freddie Flintoff, Judi Dench or James Nesbitt. These people are role models and idols to many. They will be the people who will create attention, make the sport fashionable and draw in the crowds. We must embrace concerts after racing; UB40 on a Thursday evening at Epsom is surprisingly popular! Entrance must be cheaper and under-18s should get in for free, after all they cannot buy alcohol or place a bet. Let’s give people a reason to go racing. Getting the message across But most of all we must tell the stories that are the bricks and mortar of our sport; of passion, victory, courage and endeavour. Trainers, jockeys, owners, breeders, pundits, gamblers, the mere follower; everyone has a story to tell. We must force these into the limelight. Racing can, and must, rebrand and reform, but there is certainly

no need to reinvent. What we must do is recognise and remember what it is that makes our sport special. It is a world that people aspire to be part of. It is an exclusive world. It is the Sport of Kings, not the Sport of the Common Man. We cannot compete with football, tennis, rugby or golf. They are mainstream sports that people can do at home, at school or at a local club. This must be accepted. Racing is special. To go racing must be a special day out. We must embrace modernisation, exploit what makes the sport special, and move forward, whilst at the same time protecting what it is that makes our sport the Sport of Kings. There is such a thing as too much of a good thing; less can be more. We must make racing fashionable yet attainable. As Clare Balding recently put it so succinctly, “we mustn’t dilute or cheapen the product”. To do this would be suicide. And, after all, we couldn’t all fit into Gibraltar.

was won by Elnawin, bred by Richard Tucker of Nelson Farm Stud, and I bought Borderlescott’s dam from him,” he said. “At York, the winner was Midnight Martini, bred by Bridget Skinner of Helescane Stud – and it was from her stud that we sold Borderlescott.” He realised 13,000gns at the 2003 Doncaster October Yearling Sales. By now everyone knows that the Clarks procured Borderlescott’s dam Jeewan for a bargain £500. “I went to see a Forzando mare that Richard had for sale,” he recalled, “but she didn’t take my fancy. Then I caught sight of Jeewan, liked what I saw, had a discussion with Richard about the price, went home and

decided to buy her!” Now 24, Jeewan is pensioned off at home for a second time. It was after Borderlescott had triumphed in the 2006 Stewards’ Cup that she was brought out of retirement to be reunited with Compton Place – the resultant filly features as lot 476 in Book 1 of the October Yearling Sale. “Of course I should love to keep her,” said Clark, “but we are not getting any younger and if she does really well at the sales we can put the funds to good use. She will have a good reserve as we can’t afford to give her away. “She is very correct and all the experts tell me she does not look like an old mare’s foal.” The Clarks have three active broodmares and all are represented at Tattersalls’ October Sale. Four Penny Road has a Compton Place colt in Book 2, while in Book 3 T G’s Girl has a Bertolini filly and Persian Fortune has a Proclamation colt. All bar one are consigned by Ted Voute, the last of the quartet coming from Throckmorton Court Stud. The Compton Place colt, a three-parts brother in blood to Borderlescott, is a first foal. His dam Four Penny Road is named after the road adjoining Clark’s mother’s family farm at Golden in Tipperary, close to Coolmore. The mare’s current foal is a Trade Fair filly and she is back in foal again to old favourite Compton Place.

Stonethorn Stud Farms, Bahamian won the Lingfield Oaks Trial for trainer Jeremy Tree. On the distaff side, Midday goes back three generations to Mofida, who was bought for Juddmonte Farms in foal to The Minstrel from Robert Sangster in 1981. The foal she was carrying was Zaizafon, who became the dam of Zafonic and Zamindar, and her next offspring was Modena, dam of 1997 Oaks heroine Reams Of Verse.

I think the second time gave me the biggest thrill.

“Somehow I was more hopeful as the horse had already proved he could do it. He may not be the best sprinter ever, but he must be the gamest.” There was an amazing set of circumstances about both victories in the Group 1 sprint championship, and they involve the DBS £300,000 St Leger Yearling Stakes run at the same meeting, as Clark explained. “At Newmarket the sales race

Breeder of the Month: Khalid Abdullah With the fire-power at its disposal, it is not surprising that Juddmonte Farms has won numerous Breeder of the Month awards, and there was a string of big-race victories for Khalid Abdullah’s operation in August. These were headed by Midday (Group 1 Nassau Stakes), Showcasing (Group 2 Gimcrack Stakes), Famous Name (Group 3 Desmond Stakes) and Cross Harbour (Group 3 Prix GontautBiron).

A major contributor to this bonanza was Banstead Manor Stud’s homebred Oasis Dream, the sire of both Midday and Showcasing. Bahamian (Mill Reef – Sorbus), the grandam of Oasis Dream, was a yearling acquisition by Khalid Abdullah at the 1986 Highflyer Sales, when procured for 310,000gns.

Wilfred Sherman

a man with a mission by Richard Negus

Wilfred Sherman has always been a man on a mission. Born in 1911 in the backstreets of Cardiff this son of a Jewish Lithuanian émigré set his heart, and active mind, on making his way in the world. He started running a book at the age of 10 and except for a wartime sojourn in the RAF, reaching the rank of Squadron Leader, he continued his betting life as the MD of a hugely successful chain of bookmaking shops, owner of notable horses including the triumph Hurdle winning England’s Glory and of course supremo of the Sherman’s pools operation. A passionate racing man, Wilfred was taken in the mid 1960’s to see a horse of his in Malton, he was surprised to see the large number of young stable lads kicking their heels around the town, particularly congregating around the outside of public houses. Upon finding out that the lads quite literally had no-where to go in their free time, Sherman, as a former member of the Cardiff City Boys club himself, set about forming a club where stable lads could relax, keep fit and partake in Wilfred’s other passionboxing. Upon finding out more about the stable lad’s life Wilfred tasked himself with easing their burdens and making not only their free time more fulfilling but also the workplace a safer place to be. The Sherman zeal was and still is legendary. He sort, and found, the funding to re-energise and rebuild the New Astley Club, he bought Jack Jarvis’s yard upon the trainers death and, through some Welsh cunning, succeeded in gaining the permission and funds required to build homes for retired stable staff on the land, he is the founding father of the charity which is now called Racing Welfare, he instigated and promoted the annual Stable Lads Boxing tournaments in London which raised £100’s of thousands for racing’s people, yet probably the one thing that this great man did, that has helped to save the most lives in racing is a forgotten legacy. Photos of stable lads riding on any training ground from the 50’s and 60’s show sleek horses ridden by tidy riders, dressed usually in a tweed jacket, breeches, boots and a flat cap. It was this head gear that set the Welshman’s mind reeling. He asked a trainer in HQ “why are apprentices, fresh out of school allowed on a horse’s back without a hard hat on?”

the general response was that of a shrugged shoulder or “it encourages them not to fall off.” This negative response and the knowledge that so many falls resulted in at least concussion and at worst lasting disability or death, encouraged Sherman to write to the Home Office. His persistence in this matter, and his dedication to both the sport and his beloved lads, resulted in a meeting with the Home Secretary. Thus a man who stands 4’11” in his stocking feet, 40 years ago this year, brought a clause into the Safety at Work Act that required all riders, working for licensed trainers, to wear an approved safety helmet. How many lives has Wilfred Sherman saved? Well mine for one, I suffered a fall out exercising, with my mount rolling on top of me from toe to head, and whilst cracking ribs and my sternum the saddle’s pommel smashed my crash cap into two pieces, my skull however didn’t, I am still here to write the tale. Thank you Mr Sherman.

of injury Racing Welfare is the only charity that helps all of Racingʼs people in times of need. Requests for our services have never been at a higher level. In the last series of articles written about the Charity we highlighted the increasing demand for quality, affordable housing for Racingʼs people and the measures that Racing Welfare are taking to address this need. The need for housing is a major concern but the Charity also helps racingʼs people with problems caused by Debt, Mental ill health, employment, pensions and training issues. The Charity also provides advice, financial assistance and practical help for those who suffer from accidents and the resulting injuries and disability that they may encounter as a result of the physically demanding, and on occasion, potentially dangerous work that is the lot of working with racehorses.

Compared to other employment sectors the racing industry has a very good scheme to help prevent employees from being out of pocket as a result of an accident at (or on the way to) work. Both employers and employees contribute to the costs Racing Industry Accident Benefit Scheme (RIABS). The scheme is designed to ensure that employees continue to receive the equivalent of their net wage if they are off work for longer than a month for a period of up to 2 years (104 weeks), up to a maximum currently of £350 per week. This will normally be made up of Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) or if they are off work for more than 28 weeks Employment Support Allowance (formerly Incapacity Benefit), and a payment from RIABS to make up the difference between this and your normal take home pay. RIABS therefore is a system that the industry can be proud of, however the long

term problems caused by a debilitating injury or indeed progressive conditions such as arthritis found in later life by the majority of retired stable and stud staff are not covered by RIABS. This is frequently where the Charity steps in with assistance ranging from major refurbishment of a severely disabled work riderʼs house to facilitate a wheelchair, through to the provision of sports therapy for recuperating individuals returning to work from injury. A telling quote from one Newmarket based work rider suffering from complications caused by a shattered collar bone sums up the importance of Racing Welfare to the industry “ I smashed my collar bone in a nasty fall, without your {Racing Welfare} help I would have been on my arse” Pithy but to the point! Racing Welfare helps hundreds of people each year. For those who are injured in work based accidents, through falls, kicks and bites or strains the road to recovery can be a long one. Once the surface scars have healed the long term traumas for both the body and mind can remain. The realisation that your nerve as a rider has started to diminish due to a significant fall is not only mentally unnerving but also potentially a career threatening situation. Facial injuries received from kicks may leave the individual with disfigurement, causing life long personal esteem and confidence issues and in the worst cases the chance of life in a wheel chair can loom large. Whilst the plight of jockeys injured in falls on the racecourse is obvious to the owner, breeder or racegoer thanks to television coverage, the vast majority of accidents that occur in racing happen in studs, stables and on the training grounds and are suffered by stable lads, lasses and stud staff. In Newmarket, all too frequently, these accidents are only signified to the public by the wail of an ambulance leaving the heath heading in the direction of Adenbrookes or The West Suffolk Hospital or occasionally one may read a paragraph hidden in the depths of The Racing Post stating that a work rider has been seriously injured in a fall.

Accidents and potentially life threatening injuries can come when least expected

Martin Gear works for Sir Michael Stoute in his Beech Hurst yard; he is a yardman and is an integral part of the leading trainerʼs team that produces so many winners. Having worked for over ten years in the game, Martin could hardly be described as a novice around race horses, yet a well aimed kick from one of the two year olds in his care caught him completely by surprise. The kick caused massive trauma to his skull and nose, both being fractured, surgeons at Adenbrookes spent seven hours removing bone fragments and fluid that lay close to his brain plus extensive maxillo-facial surgery to straighten his nose. Surgeons commented that Martin was very fortunate not to have sustained brain damage or sight loss as a result of the kick. The end of the story has a bitter sweet twist to it, Martin was due to run in this yearʼs London Marathon on behalf of Racing Welfare and had succeeded in raising nearly £2,000, obviously this hideous injury put paid to that, and plans for a crack at the New York marathon (funded by the Charity as part of his recuperation process) this November were put on hold by his doctors who were concerned that his skull was not yet sufficiently healed to permit him to train safely. Martin has returned to work and thankfully with an employer like Sir Michael, he has received the support at work both financially and mentally as deserved by all staff in the industry. Racing Welfare has been in constant contact and support and we hope yet to see him stride the streets in the London marathon representing the Charity. We are also pleased to tell, that he is currently on Honeymoon following his marriage in early August, so a success story, yet one that could so easily have been a tragedy.

Paul Bamford

Paul Bamford with Terri Griffiths, Head of Welfare (Racing Welfare)

Paul ‘Barney’ Bamford is one of those rare people who once met you feel a better person for knowing him. Paul is not a man who you may have heard of, he is one of the legion of unsung heroes who make up racing’s workforce. As an apprentice at Barry Hills he was a contemporary of Darryll Holland. He soon realised that Darryll was always going to 4 lbs better than him and as a result he focussed his attentions on making his way in the racing industry without troubling the weighing room with his presence any more. Having looked after a number of Group winning horses, his favourite being the precocious In Command, winner of the 1996 Dewhurst, Bamford earned a fair reputation as a horseman. New opportunities were sort away from the Hills yard, leading to him taking on the role of Assistant Trainer with Les Ayre in Spain. He was accompanied to Mijas by his long term partner Debbie, who was three months pregnant and their small son Calum. Sadly the move proved to be a life changing experience of the worst possible kind. The first sign that something untoward had happened was when Paul’s mount returned loose to the yard. He was found out on the training grounds barely able to move. Following evacuation from the scene by helicopter to hospital he learned that his back was broken. Racing Welfare funded his emergency medical airlift back to the UK and the Sheffield Northern General Hospital. Through the support of Debbie, Racing Welfare’s officers and Paul’s own determination to carry on, he faced up to the prospect of spending the rest of his life in a wheelchair. The Charity has helped support Paul and his family throughout the last three and a half years, not only financially but also emotional to come to terms with his disability.

Bamford is not a man to be beaten by this tragedy, he has learned to work his arms and upper body, and has successfully passed both his driving test and his racing secretary’s course at BRS. On another level he has set about trying to give something back to the Charity and to the sport that he still loves so dearly. He has raised large sums for Racing Welfare, recently helping to raise money for the Malton Fire Disaster Appeal and wheeling his chair for 24 continuous hours whilst accompanying Richard Dunwoody on his 1,000 Mile Challenge, the former champion jockey described this feat with a succinct “Its people like Barney Bamford who make it worthwhile putting myself through all this, the man is amazing”.

So how can you show your appreciation for people like Barney? Join him; help Racing Welfare whether that is by donating directly to the Charity or giving some of your time, like him, to raise funds and awareness about how we help racing’s people in times of need.

THE EXPERT VIEW

Tendon injuries – a tender topic They’re one of the most common racehorse injuries but there is no ‘quick fix’ and recovery can take a year or more. Patience is a virtue Words: James Tate BVMS MRCVS whilst like any other soft tissue structure they can be subject to numerous problems, swelling of the superficial digital flexor tendon with broken tendon fibres is by far the most common serious injury.

A classical ‘bowed’ tendon

Tendon injuries are perhaps the most common serious soft tissue injury in staying Flat and National Hunt horses, and hence they are indeed a tender subject for many of our readers. The word tendon refers to the portion of a muscle that inserts upon bone. Hence there are many tendons in the horse’s body. However, when we talk about a ‘tendon injury’ we are usually referring to the most common tendon injury – a lesion in one of the digital flexor tendons between the knee and the fetlock. The area between the horse’s knee and fetlock is a complex but extremely familiar area. When examining the leg from front to back, first comes the cannon bone, behind this is the suspensory ligament and at the back of the leg are the two flexor tendons – the deep digital flexor tendon and the superficial digital flexor tendon. These structures are under significant stress and,

Clinical signs The severity of signs shown by a horse with a tendon injury varies with the severity of the problem. A horse with a near rupture of a flexor tendon is obviously lame with a massively swollen (‘bowed’) tendon that is extremely sore to palpate. At the other end of the scale, a horse may come back from the races sound, with apparently normal tendons, but some general filling to one or both legs, particularly in the tendon sheath that houses the lower part of the tendons. Some people refer to such horses as being ‘jarred up’.

The flexor tendons are found at the back of the horse’s cannon bone

It may well be that with some rest and anti-inflammatory therapy, such horses will continue to race soon afterwards with no further problems; however, it may be wise to question why such swelling has occurred. Indeed, a proportion of these horses may in fact have suffered small tendon injuries. The swelling seen could actually be a reaction caused by the injured tendon. Therefore, the general rule should always be to treat the horse as though it has suffered a tendon injury until proven otherwise. As a general rule, the superficial digital flexor tendon is injured more frequently than the deep digital flexor tendon, but injuries can occur in both of these structures anywhere from just below the knee down to the pastern. Other more serious injuries to be aware of in this area that can cause swelling include fractures of the cannon bone, splint bone or sesamoid bone, as well as suspensory ligament and ‘check’ ligament injuries. Whilst we may panic every time a horse has swelling in the region of its flexor tendons, there are of course many possible causes of the swelling that are not serious. A horse may have simply suffered a bang or kick, or on closer inspection there may be a small wound on the leg; hence the swelling is actually being caused by infection under the skin. Causes Superficial digital flexor tendon injuries are usually caused by excessive strain. Although they can be caused by a single overload or trauma, they are much

The two photographs above show a horse with excess fluid in its digital flexor tendon sheath. A horse that comes back from the races with such a swelling must be treated as having a possible tendon injury

more commonly fatigue-related and hence they are usually seen in horses running over longer distances. Indeed, there is a school of thought that high temperatures within the tendon can play a part in the injury, thus bandaging horses for racing could actually make a horse more likely to suffer a tendon injury. It is the centre of the tendon that is usually affected, hence the term ‘core lesion’, which refers to a portion of torn tendon fibres in the centre of the tendon. In severe, acute injuries there is also bleeding into the tendon, which in turn causes separation of the remaining tendon fibres, hence the urgency to reduce any swelling and bleeding in a recently injured tendon by rest, cold therapy, bandaging and anti-

considered mild, 15-25% moderate, and over 25% severe.

inflammatory drugs. As the tendon heals, the remaining blood clot or haematoma turns into granulation tissue, which later turns into fibrous tissue that will never be as good as the tendon fibres originally ruptured. Diagnosis Diagnosis of a tendon injury is usually easily made by the clinical signs discussed above, along with taking the horse’s recent history into account. For example, if the horse in question raced the day before in a long distance race, then a tendon injury is likely, but if the horse has not been ridden for a week then there may be another cause. Tendons are easily imaged via an ultrasound scan, which gives a clear and accurate assessment of the soft tissue structures in the region. However, whilst tendon injuries seen on ultrasound scans are rarely incorrect, sometimes tendon scans can appear initially

normal, when in fact there are tiny microscopic tears that cannot be picked up on a scan until several days after an injury was first suspected. This provides another reason to treat a horse as though it has suffered a tendon injury until proven otherwise. Prognosis Tendon injuries are bad news, no matter how small a lesion is actually diagnosed. There are no shortcuts in the treatment and horses do not often return to racing in much less than a year. There have been numerous studies performed on tendon injuries. Depending on which study you read, 20-80% return to racing. One large study found that 80% re-injure at some point in their lives. However, all of the studies do agree that the severity of the injury does have a large impact on the prognosis. If the core lesion is measured at less than 15% of the tendon, the injury is

Treatment The aim of treatment is to limit swelling (and therefore further damage), to minimise scarring and to promote the restoration of normal tendon structure. In the initial stages horses should be rested and subjected to as much cold therapy and antiinflammatory drugs as possible, as well as being kept in carefullyapplied even bandages. This will help to ensure that the inflammation within the injured tendon is kept to a minimum and that the tendon remains as straight as possible. Swimming is beneficial for horses with injured tendons as the cold therapy and light exercise is just what is required in the initial stages. After approximately two to four weeks, as granulation tissue forms in the site of the tendon injury and before the affected area becomes fibrous, a small amount of walking should be gradually introduced and increased slowly. This theoretically allows the ‘new’ tendon to organise its structure whilst performing light exercise, rather than healing when the tendon is rested completely. Recovery exercise regimes should ideally be gradually built up from box rest, to walking, to trotting and steady cantering before turnout is considered. After all, if a horse is turned out in a field it will canter, so a horse with a tendon injury should be fit to canter before it is turned out. Jury’s out Many medical and surgical treatments have been put forward for tendon injuries, however, in truth they probably have less effect on the chance of the horse successfully returning to racing than aggressive antiinflammatory treatment of the acute injury followed by a sensible recovery programme. Currently, there are very few ‘tendon treatments’ that have any obvious merit. The slightly medieval and rather barbaric procedure of pinfiring the tendon

may be verging on cruel, but many swear that it does slightly increase a horse’s chance of recovery. The theory behind it is that by pinfiring the leg, the tendon’s healing will be further stimulated. ‘Stem cell’ therapy sounds much better in theory than pinfiring and it has been used relatively successfully by many veterinary surgeons for approximately five years. Bone marrow is taken from the horse’s sternum under standing sedation, cultured at a laboratory into millions of mesenchymal stem cells and then these are injected into the core lesion in the tendon approximately one month after the injury has occurred, to attempt to produce a tendon that has ‘normal’ tendon fibres, rather than simply a section of scar tissue holding the tendon together. Whilst results are encouraging, at present the jury is still out on exactly how effective this treatment is. The same company that markets stem cell therapy (VetCell®) has recently brought out a new procedure called platelet rich plasma (PRP), which aims to enhance healing and induce tissue regeneration. A blood sample is taken from the injured horse and concentrated until it is rich in a blood structure called a platelet. Once these platelets are introduced into a tendon lesion they release growth factors which accelerate healing. This has been shown to increase the quality of repair in the treatment of tendon injuries. This interesting technique is in its infancy and is currently being trialled by several veterinary surgeons. Conclusion In summary, tendon injuries are incredibly frustrating because, despite a great deal of patience and the best treatment available, they do not always heal and often recur. Nevertheless, all suspected cases must be treated with caution and confirmed injuries must be treated aggressively, initially and carefully thereafter.

ANDREW CAULFIELD REPORTS ON THE BLOODSTOCK WORLD Orpen didn’t race much after winning the Morny – and didn’t win again – but has been doing well at stud and should be liked by French breeders

Stories for Morny glories

W

hen Arcano maintained his unbeaten record in the Prix Morny, he kept alive the possibility that he will one day stand comparison with such outstanding Morny winners as Blushing Groom, Irish River, Green Forest, Zafonic, Arazi, Machiavellian and Divine Proportions. Or will he become one of those slightly less high profile winners who have tended to dominate this Group 1 race in recent years? Several of these recent Morny winners began their stallion careers at comparatively modest fees but have since shown that, as winners of one of Europe’s most competitive two-year-old sprints, they combine the class and precocity to make very effective sires, especially of juveniles. This year’s Morny had been

widely expected to fall to Canford Cliffs, a son of the 1995 winner Tagula. Unfortunately, the Hannon colt, who created such a stir with his Coventry Stakes victory, found the Deauville going too fast for him in finishing a close third. He was jarred up afterwards. Several other Morny winners were also responsible for notable two-year-olds during the summer, including the 1998 winner Orpen. Great things were expected of this royally-bred son of the sub-fertile Lure when he landed the Morny little more than three months after his actual birthday of May 20. Sadly, the colt, from the same family as the Morny winners Coup De Genie and Machiavellian, didn’t race again at two and then failed to win in four attempts at three, prompting his connections to set his fee no higher than IR7,000 gns.

Orpen made a pleasing start in 2003 with a first crop that included the Group 3 Prestige Stakes winner Gracefully and the 2004 Poule d’Essai des Pouliches winner Torrestrella. As a consequence, Orpen continued to sire some sizeable crops but his number of mares fell in 2007 and he was transferred to Haras du Thenney in France – a sensible move bearing in mind his Morny victory and his daughter’s Classic victory at Longchamp. Orpen makes splash Orpen should prove an asset to French breeders, as he has three smart juvenile performers in his penultimate Irish crop. The Tom Dascombe-trained Orpen Grey followed up his eight-length Salisbury success with a fine effort in the Group 2 July Stakes, in which he failed by less than a length to withstand

the late challenge of Arcano. In the process he earned an official rating of 114. Another of Orpen’s speedy youngster is the Italian-trained Orpen Shadow. The winner of the Group 3 Premio Primi Passi also tried to lead throughout when he travelled to France for the Group 2 Prix Robert Papin, and emerged with credit in finishing fourth to the decisive winner Special Duty. Special Duty had finished second to another Orpen juvenile, Sorciere, when they had their first runs in the Listed Prix Yacowlef. Orpen has also made quite a splash with his southern hemisphere progeny. War Artist was bred in Australia and arrived in Britain via South Africa, where Orpen’s Argentinian sons Rocks Off and Private Jet also enjoyed Group 1 success. Orpen’s

numerous Group winners in Argentina also include Enak and True Passion, winners of top juvenile races in May and June respectively. That Argentine crop is continuing to blaze a trail and Orpen’s sons Don Valiente and Quartier Latin fought out the finish to the Gran Premio Polla de Potrillos, the first leg of the Argentine Triple Crown. Perhaps we will be seeing some of these South American horses racing with distinction in Dubai before too long. The 2003 Prix Morny winner Whipper has made a promising start with his daughter Dolled Up, who followed up her victory in the Group 3 Prix du Bois with a fine third in the Prix Robert Papin and a close fourth in the Morny. Elusive promise The 2002 Morny winner Elusive City – like Orpen – failed to win again and he consequently started out at €8,000. The handsome son of Elusive Quality made an excellent start in 2008 through the French Group winners Soul City and Elusive Wave, the latter winner of this year’s Poule d’Essai des Pouliches, and this crop has since produced very useful performers Nashmiah and Able Master. His smaller second crop is also showing promise and his daughter Elusive Galaxy (inbred 4 x 3 to Danzig) looked a filly to remember when third in the Group 2 Debutante Stakes. His French son Boltcity took the scalps of two talented colts in Zanzibari and Head Of Steam when he scored at Deauville in July. Once again, the news that Elusive City is moving to France from Ireland could prove to be very much France’s gain. Another Morny winner worthy of mention is Johannesburg. He certainly couldn’t be described as a low-profile winner, as he ended his juvenile season as an unbeaten winner of seven starts, including Group 1 races in Ireland, France, Britain and the USA. His winless second season knocked some of the gloss off

his reputation and he spent his first four seasons at Ashford Stud at fees of $30,000 or less. It was only in 2007, after an eyecatching start with his first crop in 2006, that his fee jumped to $65,000. In other words, his 2009 two-year-olds – from his fourth season – are off his cheapest fee of $25,000. He could be forgiven if his results declined, but that doesn’t look likely. Hope for Johannesburg Radiohead looked potentially special when he took the Group 2 Norfolk Stakes and finished third against the older sprinters in the Nunthorpe, and Johannesburg has also been represented by Red Jazz, third to Arcano in the July Stakes, and Chantilly Crème, a Listed winner at Deauville in August. Johannesburg inherited his precocity from his sire Hennessy, whose reputation was still rising when he died at the age of 14 while on southern-hemisphere duty in Argentina in 2007. Hennessy’s current crop of twoyear-olds is therefore his second last and it has already produced a potential star in Special Duty. Despite still being green, she proved too good for the colts in the Group 2 Prix Robert Papin, and she nearly repeated the performance in the Morny. Hennessy also figures in the pedigree of Mi Sueno, a very promising two-year-old filly in America. The winner of the Grade 3 Sorrento Stakes and the Grade 1 Darley Debutante Stakes cost $1.7 million as a foal, and is out of Hennessy’s Grade 1-winning daughter Madcap Escapade. Another stallion which won the Morny, the National Stud’s Bahamian Bounty, continues to come up with plenty of juvenile winners and his 18 winners in Britain or Ireland by early September gives him a chance of matching his 2008 figure of 24. Bahamian Bounty is also exerting an influence on the firstcrop sires’ table through his July Cup-winning son Pastoral Pursuits, whose total of 11 winners includes five repeat scorers.

Daughters offering some redemption Daylami may not have excelled at stud, but may yet develop into a top broodmare sire As a great admirer of Daylami during his racing career, I am loath to say it, but he was pretty much a disaster as a stallion. In seven years in Ireland, the seventime Group 1 winner sired well over 450 foals. Yet he has so far sired a mere three Group winners on the Flat. Daylami earned himself a lengthy period of grace by siring Grey Swallow, winner of the Irish Derby, in his first crop, but there were no Group winners in his second or third crops and only one – Timarwa – in his fourth. We had to wait until 2009 for Group winner number three, Voila Ici, whose best win came in the Group 2 Prix Maurice de Nieuil. In addition, Daylami’s name has been linked to wind problems. Having listed Daylami’s failings, you may be surprised to find me nominating him as one to watch in the role of broodmare sire. His eldest daughters are only eight in 2009 – old enough to have only two foals of racing age if they raced at three. Daylami has therefore done well to already have two Group winners to his credit as a broodmare sire.

Tamarillo, a first-crop daughter who won the 2004 UAE Oaks, has produced the Group 3 winner Summer Fete as her first foal. And Tariysha, a second-crop daughter who never raced, has made a splendid start to her broodmare career, thanks to her Prix Morny-winning son Arcano. Not uncommon It isn’t unusual for a disappointing stallion to become a useful broodmare sire. The explanation is that a high-priced stallion will have attracted many good mares from quality families before his shortcomings become apparent four or five years down the line. Daylami, with a CV which included victories in such races as the King George, Irish Champion Stakes and Breeders’ Cup Turf, was inevitably targeted by many top breeders. His appeal was only heightened by his pedigree being free of Northern Dancer and by his comparative lack of conformation flaws. Remember, too, that he is a member of the Mill Reef male line, like celebrated broodmare sires Shirley Heights and Darshaan.

Daylami: disappointing stallion but can be successful broodmare sire

2007-08 season, she’s now four from seven. The Premio Polla de Potrillos brought another Classic victory for Dushyantor in only 0.18s slower time than the fillies’ two races earlier. Hoy Si was the third winner of this race trained by Domingo Matte. He led over a furlong out and ran on strongly to score by four and a quarter lengths. It was his third win in seven outings.

easy victory in the Group 2 GP Criadores on August 1 with another odds-on success in the Premio Mil Guineas. She is owned by Haras El Sheik, the stud which is home to her sire. A champion at two and three, Auguri is a rare homebred to be given a decent chance as a sire. This winner is from his eighth crop. He was by Iroko, a son of Ile de Bourbon who won four times for Sir Michael Stoute, all at ten furlongs, in 1985.

Rachel Alexandra deserves top billing for the second month in a row after becoming the first filly to beat the boys in the Woodward Stakes at Saratoga. This was much the most hard-earned victory of her current nine-race winning streak, as jockey Calvin Borel got her involved in an early speed duel and then had to be very forceful to turn back the late challenge of Macho Again, who had come from last. Rachel Alexandra has had seven further starts since scoring on her seasonal debut in midFebruary, so it is hardly surprising that owner Jess Jackson has decided to put her away until next year. Summer Bird, the Belmont Stakes winner she trounced in the Haskell Invitational, underlined the strength of that form with a comfortable success in the Travers Stakes. Quality Road was five lengths back in third in the Travers but was fractious and unseated his rider beforehand. They could meet again in the Jockey Club Gold Cup on October 3. The other outstanding member of the 2009 Classic crop is Zensational, albeit at shorter trips. He made it three Grade 1s in a row by lifting a pair of Del Mar features, the Bing Crosby Stakes and Pat O’Brien Stakes. Trainer Bob Baffert will now freshen him up for the Breeders’ Cup Sprint (November 7), a race he has won for the past two

years with Midnight Lute. Further Zen philosophy brings us to Zenyatta, the only feasible alternative to Rachel Alexandra as Horse of the Year. Her reputation lost a little of its lustre, even though she took her career record to an unblemished 12 wins from 12 starts, in the Clement L Hirsch Stakes. The eight-and-a-half-furlong trip and Del Mar’s short home straight counted against her come-from-behind style, and jockey Mike Smith admitted that he had underestimated her opposition. She still got the job done, catching Anabaa’s Creation right on the line, and will run next in the Lady’s Secret Stakes (October 10), then remain at Santa Anita for the Breeders’ Cup, either the Ladies Classic (which she won last year) or the Classic itself. In a less stellar season, Gio Ponti might be a Horse of the Year candidate. But, short of switching to an artificial surface and winning the Classic, he is more likely to have to settle for the title of America’s top turf horse. He emphasised his superiority on grass in the Arlington Million, albeit on officially ‘good’ going that was more like ‘yielding’ and inconvenienced his chief rivals, Einstein, Cima de Triomphe and Gloria de Campeao. Trainer Christophe Clement and Irish owner Shane Ryan, of Castleton Lyons, have a bit of thinking to do about Gio

Ponti’s Breeders’ Cup target, as he is already a winner on Santa Anita’s Pro-Ride artificial surface. The rain-softened ground also played a key role in the other Arlington Turf Festival races, Dynaforce revelling in it to see off the French visitor, Alnadana, in the Beverly D Stakes, and Take The Points catching Irish raider Black Bear Island close home in the Secretariat Stakes. Godolphin suffered a dismal start to its US campaign. But everything came right at Saratoga, where 14 runners brought eight victories including four at Grade 1 level. The most recent of these came via new recruit Pyro in the Forego Stakes, while the fillies Flashing and Music Note had earlier won the Test Stakes and the Ballerina Stakes respectively. Saratoga’s other female features saw Careless Jewel follow up her easy Delaware Oaks triumph with an even easier score in the Alabama Stakes and Icon Project, fourth in the 2008 Ribblesdale Stakes when trained by Brian Meehan, break her Grade 1 duck by an astonishing 13 and a half lengths in the Personal Ensign Stakes. Another former British filly making waves on the other side of the Atlantic is Magical Fantasy, who took five tries to win a maiden when with James Nicol as a juvenile. Now four, her John C Mabee Stakes

success was her fourth American Grade 1 triumph. Two prestigious all-aged events produced surprises, outsider of six Bullsbay seeing off Macho Again in the Whitney Handicap, and the unheralded Richard’s Kid getting up late to deny the Arlington Million disappointment, Einstein, in the Pacific Classic. The two-year-old pecking order is beginning to take shape, the Californians Mi Sueno and Lookin At Lucky making early bids for top honours. Mi Sueno followed up her Sorrento Stakes win in the Del Mar Debutante and Best Pal Stakes hero Lookin At Lucky did the same in the Del Mar Futurity. Over on the East Coast, Hot Dixie Chick carried the colours of Jess Jackson’s wife, Barbara Banke, to beat the same rival (Beautician) in the Spinaway Stakes as she had five weeks earlier in the Grade 3 Schuylerville Stakes. Dublin broke a hard-to-believe four-year Grade 1 drought for the once-dominant D Wayne Lukas in the Hopeful Stakes. Finally, the prize for most unlikely Grade 1 winner of the month goes to Telling, a first ever starter in such vaunted company for trainer Steve Hobby, who snapped a ten-race losing sequence by beating a tenyear-old and an eight-year-old in the Sword Dancer Invitational.

Unfortunately, injury forced King’s Apostle into retirement just weeks after he had added the Gr1 Prix Maurice de Gheest to his Gr2 victory in the 2008 Diadem Stakes. In common with many good sprinters, King’s Apostle hadn’t been particularly precocious and his move into stakes company came only after he had risen through the handicap ranks at three and four, ending with his narrow defeat under 9st 2lb in the 2008 Stewards’ Cup. King’s Apostle follows Creachadoir, Proclamation and Dubai Surprise as the fourth Gr1 winner among a total of 12 Group winners from the first three crops by the 2,000 Guineas winner King’s Best. However, the Classicwinning son of Kingmambo has so far failed to build on his bright start with his next three crops, born in 2005, 2006 and 2007, as they have collectively produced just two Gr3 winners. Perhaps his move to France in 2009 will revive his fortunes. King’s Apostle has a strong enough pedigree to appeal to breeders, as both his second dam Embassy and third dam Pass The Peace were good enough to win the Gr1 Cheveley Park Stakes. His dam Politesse, who was sold for 50,000gns as an unraced two-year-old, is by Barathea, whose daughters have now produced five northern hemisphere Gr1 winners. Pass The Peace also produced the smart filly Tarfshi to Mtoto.

Until Borderlescott came along, only one horse – the triple winner Sharpo – had managed to win more than one edition of the Nunthorpe Stakes during the last 50 years. As Borderlescott is a gelding, the sevenyear-old son of Compton Place could possibly return in 2010 in a bid to match Sharpo’s treble. Borderlescott, who has now finished first or second in 26 of his 43 starts, owes his speed to his sire line. Compton Place’s finest moment came when he won the July Cup and speed was also the main asset of Compton Place’s sire Indian Ridge and grandsire Ahonoora, winner of the Nunthorpe in 1979. The speed of his male line has evidently totally dominated the stamina which pervades the bottom half of his pedigree. Borderlescott’s first two dams, Jeewan and Adeebah, were respectively daughters of Touching Wood, winner of the St Legers in Britain and Ireland, and Damascus, an American Horse of the Year who collected major prizes over a mile and a half and two miles. No wonder, then, that Borderlescott’s dam Jeewan gained her only victory over a mile and a half and was tried over 17 furlongs. Jeewan’s brother Taldari also showed plenty of stamina during a distinguished career in Austria. Borderlescoot’s third dam Transylvania was a sister to Jacinto, runner-up in the Santa Anita Derby. 242 STRENSALL S G3

The value of the Aga Khan’s best families was underlined when Oasis Dream’s son Arcano maintained his unbeaten record with a narrow victory in the Prix Morny. Arcano is the first foal of Tariysha, who made € 140,000 when sold by the Aga Khan as an unraced three-year-old. Tariysha has now become the fourth daughter of the two-year-old Gr3 winner Tarwiya to produce a stakes winner. Her predecessors include Tarbela, whose two-year-old son Big Audio numbers the Chesham Stakes among his two Listed victories in 2009, and Tahara, who had already been represented by Godfrey Street, winner of the Gr2 Flying Childers Stakes, by the time Tariysha came on the market. Tarwiya was herself a half-sister to another very speedy two-year-old in Blue Dakota, winner of the Gr3 Norfolk Stakes. Fast and precocious juveniles are nothing new for this family, as Arcano’s seventh dam is Texana. Texana was France’s best twoyear-old of 1957, thanks to a remarkable record of 11 consecutive sprint victories, including one in the Prix de l’Abbaye. Texana’s younger sister Texanita was another prolific juvenile winner who also took the Prix de l’Abbaye – a race she won again at three. Texana and Texanita were by the American import Relic, and Arcano’s fifth dam, Tremogia, was inbred 3 x 3 to Relic. Tremogia enjoyed considerable success as a broodmare, producing three Group winners plus two daughters, Tarikhana and Tadkiyra, which produced Gr1 winners. One of these Gr1 winners, Damson, was fast enough to win the Phoenix Stakes over six furlongs. Arcano is inbred 4 x 4 to the great Mill Reef and has three lines to Never Bend in the fifth generation. Other good Oasis Dream winners with two lines of Mill Reef include the fast filly Starlit Sands (4 x 4) and the Gr2 winner Sri Putra (4 x 5).

Declining fertility forced the excellent French stallion Linamix into slightly early retirement, his small final crop being two years old in 2009. Fortunately. we are still receiving regular reminders of how effective Linamix could be and his 2009 threeyear-olds include the Aga Khan’s stakes winners Ashalanda and Manighar. However, Linamix’s best winner of 2009, the Prix Jean Romanet winner Alpine Rose, no longer carries the Aga’s colours. Having established herself as a very useful performer at three, Alpine Rose was consigned to Arqana’s 2008 December Sale, where she drew a bid of €550,000 from a powerful partnership. That price looked reasonable for a talented sister to four stakes winners, including Fragrant Mix (Gr1 Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud) and Fracassant (Gr3 Prix d’Hedouville), and it looks even more reasonable now.

Her 2009 efforts have earned more than €460,000 in prizemoney and owners’ premiums. Alpine Rose and her brother Fragrant Mix rank among the 12 Gr1 winners sired by Linamix, who now has a total of 39 Group winners – a fine effort which equates to nearly 5% of his output. Alpine Rose’s dam Fragrant Hill also proved a bargain at the 105,000gns she cost at the 1992 December Sales. She had won the 1991 Lupe Stakes for her breeder Paul Mellon. This family traces to the champion filly Quill. Fragrant Hill’s dam English Spring won the 1986 Prince of Wales’s Stakes and was a half-sister to Dance Of Life, a high-class Nijinsky colt whose victories included the Man o ’War Stakes. English Spring also produced Spring Oak, third in the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf.

Termagant isn’t exactly a flattering name to give to a filly, its dictionary definition being “an offensive term that deliberately insults a woman's temperament, suggesting a propensity for arguing, criticising and quarrelling.” However, the name is proving no hindrance to Powerscourt’s daughter Termagant, as she has been a decisive winner of both her starts, including the Gr1 Moyglare Stud Stakes, in which she accounted for Famous, the toppriced filly at the 2008 yearling sales. Termagant’s parents were both bred by Juddmonte Farms, but Powerscourt raced in the colours of Sue Magnier, showing excellent form every year from two to five. He earned the equivalent of nearly $2 million and his earnings would have been considerably higher had he not been demoted from first to fourth after a controversial ride in the 2004 Arlington Million. He defeated Kitten’s Joy in the following year’s Arlington Million, his other Gr1 success having been gained in the 2004 Tattersalls Gold Cup. With Coolmore already well stocked with Gr1-winning sons of Sadler’s Wells, Powerscourt was retired to Ashford Stud in Kentucky. Termagant is a member of his first crop. Rock Salt, the dam of Termagant, raced for Juddmonte, twice finishing a close second in small races at up to 11 furlongs in France, before being sold for 52,000gns at the 2004 December Sales.

Dancer and Motivator, and she has a 2009 yearling by the champion Australian stallion Encosta de Lago. Regal Parade, her son by Pivotal, was sold as a yearling for no less than 430,000gns but was gelded before he ever raced and his price fell to a mere 16,000gns when he came on the market again as a three-year-old. Regal Parade had won three times by then but his Timeform rating was accompanied by the squiggle which denotes unreliability. That squiggle disappeared in 2008, when Regal Parade won two heritage handicaps for his new trainer David Nicholls, and now he’s progressed again to become a Gr1 winner in the Sprint Cup. Regal Parade is inbred 3 x 4 to the great stallion Nureyev, through Polar Falcon and Miesque. Other notable winners by Pivotal with Nureyev inbreeding include the German Oaks winner Silvester Lady, the juvenile Group winner Brazilian Bride and the Listed winner Caesarine. 266 MATRON S G1 LEOPARDSTOWN.

Kingmambo MODEL QUEEN ch 98 Model Bride

The famous family descending from the tough-as-teak Mofida has been doing sterling work for Juddmonte Farms this year, with Midday, Zacinto, Confront and the smart French filly Emergency all winning at least at Listed level. The very promising Manifest also looks good enough to become another stakes winner for the family. However, numbers dictate that not all the fillies from this very prolific family can be retained and Model Queen, a grand-daughter of Mofida, who won only a 7.5-furlong maiden at Beverley, was sold for 92,000gns at the end of her three-year-old season. With Kingmambo as her sire and a daughter of Mofida as her dam, Model Queen is a three-parts-sister to Midsummer, the dam of that grand filly Midday. Model Queen’s new owners, Highclere Stud, John Warren and Harry Herbert, have invested heavily in her, sending her to such as Fantastic Light, Pivotal, Montjeu, Danehill

When Rainbow View’s pedigree was reviewed after she had maintained her unbeaten record in the Fillies’ Mile, it was pointed out that some observers were suggesting she might not have the physical scope to prove as dominant at three. To an extent they were right, as the daughter of Dynaformer failed to win any of her first five three-year-old starts. But, while Rainbow View may no longer be a champion, she was good enough to win the Matron Stakes and finish second in the Nassau Stakes and fourth in the Oaks. George Strawbridge must be looking forward to Rainbow View’s broodmare career. In addition to being an excellent performer, she comes from a first-rate female line and is by a stallion whose daughters are shaping up well as broodmares. Her dam No Matter What won the Listed Prix des Lilas over a mile and the Gr1 Del Mar Oaks over a furlong further. With only four foals of racing age, No Matter What has been represented by three Group/Graded winners on turf in 2009. Rainbow View’s second dam Words Of War earned over $680,000. Although the bulk of her stakes victories came on turf, Words Of War was also a stakes winner on dirt. Words Of War is also the dam of E Dubai and her sister Ascutney also has two Graded winners, including Raven’s Pass, winner of the Breeders’ Cup Classic. 267 SIRENIA S G3 KEMPTON PARK.

102 THOROUGHBRED OWNER & BREEDER INC PACEMAKER

Was there a stallion in better form during July, August and the start of September than Oasis Dream? The Banstead Manor stallion came up with Group winner after Group winner, including the Gr1 winners Aqlaam, Arcano and Midday, and the Gr2 winners Misheer, Monitor Closely, Showcasing, Sri Putra and Tuscan Evening. Aqlaam had looked an excellent prospect when he decisively won the 2008 Jersey Stakes on only his third appearance but, for the second time in his career, he was then sidelined by injury. Understandably rusty on his return from an 11-month layoff, Aqlaam has since produced four excellent efforts, including a career best when he landed a strongly-run Prix du Moulin de Longchamp from Famous Name. Aqlaam carries the colours of Hamdan Al Maktoum, whose Shadwell Stud has been home to Aqlaam’s grandsire Green Desert for so many years. Sheikh Hamdan is taking a keen interest in Oasis Dream’s sons, buying Aqlaam for 260,000gns as a foal and the unbeaten Arcano before his victory in the Gr1 Prix Morny. Aqlaam stays better than his sire, which is no surprise in view of the bottom half of his pedigree. His dam Bourbonella is an unraced half-sister, by Rainbow Quest, to that phenomenal long-distance performer Persian Punch. Bourbonella is also a half-sister to Classic Punch and Grand Bahama, two Listed winners over a mile and a half, so it is hardly surprising that her 2006 foal, a Sakhee gelding called Curacao, holds a Cesarewitch entry. Aqlaam’s second dam Rum Cay was sold as an unraced three-year-old for 2,000gns. After winning one of her two starts in bumper races, she finally made her first official start on the Flat, when she won a 14.6f Doncaster maiden. The next dam, Oraston, won the Gr1 Premio Lydia Tesio.

Just 20 minutes after his son Kite Wood had failed by only three-parts of a length to provide Galileo with his second winner of the St Leger, the Coolmore stallion gained compensation when his four-year-old son Alandi showed plenty of courage to triumph in the Irish equivalent. Alandi didn’t make his debut until October 20 as a three-year-old, when he won a maiden race at the Curragh. John Oxx later revealed that the Aga Khan had received plenty of offers for Alandi as a potential hurdler, but the decision to retain him has been thoroughly justified. He has steadily developed into a high-class stayer, especially when the ground is soft, and his Irish St Leger victory followed a five-length Listed victory in testing conditions. Alandi’s three-year-old half-sister Aliyfa (by Spinning World) has also become a stakes winner on very soft ground, in the Oyster Stakes over a mile and a half – a race once won by Alandi’s dam Aliya.

104 THOROUGHBRED OWNER & BREEDER INC PACEMAKER

Aliya’s sister Aliysa won the Oaks, only to be disqualified when a derivative of camphor was found in her post-race test. Aliysa died young, but not before she had produced the dual Gr3 winner Desert Story and the winning Shahrastani filly Alaiyda, who found fame as the dam of the Irish Derby and King George winner Alamshar. Alandi’s third dam Nucciolina is also the fourth dam of Yesterday, the 2003 Irish 1,000 Guineas winner who was unlucky not to win the Oaks, and of the three-time classic second Quarter Moon. Jude, the dam of Yesterday and Quarter Moon, is by Darshaan, sire also of Aliya and Aliysa. Alouette, another Darshaan mare from the Nucciolina family, has also done extremely well, producing the dual Champion Stakes winner Alborada and the triple Gr1 winner Albanova, so this type of cross has produced some exceptional broodmares down through the years. 283 NATIONAL S G1 CURRAGH.

As a Breeders’ Cup winner out of a Breeders’ Cup winner, War Chant seemed ideally qualified to develop into a top sire when he retired at a fee of $75,000. Unfortunately, he has failed to live up to expectations to the extent that his fee was down to $15,000 by 2009. Ironically, 2009 has seen him sire his first Gr1 winner from his first six crops, when Kingsfort fulfilled the promise of his impressive debut with a narrow victory in the National Stakes. Those crops had previously yielded two Gr2 winners and eight Gr3 winners. It is easy to see why War Chant was chosen as a mate for Kingsfort’s dam Princess Kris, who had previously hit the Gr1 target with Prince Arch, a son of Arch. Whereas War Chant is by Danzig out of a Kris S mare, Arch is by Kris S out of a Danzig mare. As a winner of the 11-furlong Gulfstream Park Handicap, Prince Arch suggests that Kingsfort will stay beyond a mile. Although a winner over a mile, it was Princess Kris’s pedigree that shone. Her dam As You Desire Me gained two stakes victories at around a mile, before producing the Group-winning Intimate Guest and two daughters in Princess Kris and Streetcar. Kingsfort’s third dam Royal Saint was a very talented sister to Altesse Royale, winner of the 1,000 Guineas, Oaks and Irish Oaks in 1971, but proved much the better broodmare, notably producing Classic Example, third in the St Leger and Irish Derby. 284 CHAMPAGNE S G2 DONCASTER.

Diesis’s top daughters Diminuendo and Ramruma both found one too good for them when they took on the colts in the St Leger, but Diesis’s daughters have still made a great impact on Britain’s final Classic. The 2006 Leger victor Sixties Icon is out of a Diesis mare and so too is Lucarno, winner of the 2007 edition, so it amounted to a considerable achievement on Diesis’s behalf when Mastery became the third St Leger winner in the space of four years out of one of his daughters. Mastery also represents a triumph for his sire, as he comes from the first crop by Sulamani, a multiple Gr1 winner who was transferred by Darley to France after he had stood his first three seasons at Dalham Hall. Mastery’s dam Moyesii was only a fairly useful winner over 9.2 furlongs in the French Provinces, but she has proved very successful as a broodmare. On a trip to the UAE, she visited Jade Robbery to produce the very talented Kirklees, winner of the Gr1 Gran Criterium at two and now showing very good form over middle distances in Britain at five. Perhaps Darley are now wishing they hadn’t sold Mastery’s sister for 34,000gns as a yearling in 2008. Moyesii was no doubt retained by Darley because she is a daughter of Cherokee Rose, who carried Sheikh Mohammed’s colours to victory in the Prix Maurice de Gheest and Haydock Park Sprint Cup in 1995. Although this daughter of Dancing Brave was fast enough to finish second in the Prix de l’Abbaye, she just about stayed a mile and her best winner, the Irish River colt Bowman, was third in the French 2,000 Guineas. Mastery’s fourth dam, Welsh Garden, was a champion two-year-old filly in Ireland in 1975, even though her opportunities were limited by her aversion to stalls. Welsh Garden also did very well, bearing the high-class French stayer Molesnes.

What a difference a month makes. After racing reasonably close up, Gilltown Stud’s Dalakhani now leads the way thanks not just to Conduit but to such as Armure and Chinese White. Like so many of the sire’s progeny, those two fillies have improved with age and now have Group 2 races on the scoresheet, the Prix de Pomone and Blandford Stakes respectively. Dalakhani is by Darshaan and the vast majority of his stakes winners are out of mares from the Northern Dancer line, including Sadler’s Wells. The Sadler’s Wells-Darshaan cross was one of the most effective of the 1990-2005 period and it is good to see it continuing, albeit in reverse. One surprise package is Sholokhov, at Gestut Etzean, with four stakes winners, headed by star German filly Night Magic, from 50 runners. He comes from a grand distaff family and is one to watch.

Darley duo head firstseason juvenile field Darley takes pride of place with the first-crop sires, thanks to splendid efforts by the progeny of Dubawi (Dalham Hall) and Shamardal (Kildangan). The former, one of a handful of sires to come from Dubai Millennium's only crop, has had 22 winners, three clear of Antonius Pius. They include Doncaster Group 2 scorers Poet's Voice and Sand Vixen, who both look set to progress, and this is a great start for the sire, who stood at £15,000 this year, down from €40,000. Shamardal is some way behind in winners but his batch of ten also contains two pattern scorers, Arctic and Shakespearean. Well done to him, too. Danehill Dancer is still top, but the big bonus races at Newmarket and the Curragh will soon be upon us, so it remains to be seen how he stands after those. Comments: Jeremy Early

YOUR SAY

The dilemma that faces many owner/breeders John Urquhart TBA member, formerly on the ROA Council

The plight of racing’s finances can no longer be ignored when it comes to deciding whether to have a horse in training or send a mare to stud am both an owner and breeder on a tiny scale, as well as a newly joined TBA member and former ROA Council member. I attended the recent TBA Seminar at Newmarket to listen and learn more about breeding, and with an open mind regarding the future. Based on what I heard I intended to either expand my embryo breeding operation or sell my homebred mare in training. There were some interesting presentations. Paul Greeves of Weatherbys gave a detailed analysis of the numbers for the breeding industry’s horses, yet omitted to mention what had happened to owners and their incomes since the start of the credit crunch. Owners are, of course, racing’s ultimate customers; not trainers, nor agents. I would have liked to have known the impact of the economy on all classes of ownership, categorised by individuals, partnerships and syndicates. Has the involvement of overseas and corporate owners risen or declined? What is the trend in each category, so that we know where we are heading? Personally, I have felt the pinch. Falls in depositors’ interest rates to near zero and slashing of dividends by companies have markedly reduced disposable income for many, including myself. While I have been a passionate follower of racing since childhood and have usually owned enough horses over 30 years to know the score, I am more than usually disturbed by the plight of racing’s finances now. The moves offshore by bookmakers William Hill and Ladbrokes will be further nails in the coffin of a reasonable risk/reward ratio for ownership, as the levy will be hit and prizemoney contributions will suffer. Running for decreasing prize-money when I pay training costs, transport costs, vet bills, entry fees and jockey fees, leads me to deduce that being an owner in today’s climate is somewhat daft. As a measure of the costs involved, I have added up the prize-money that my own mare gained. One win at Goodwood and three seconds yielded £6,162 – a very disappointing

return considering the costs of ownership. So how does racing get out of the current hole? I was delighted by the formation of Racing Enterprises Ltd (REL). The appointment of a dynamic marketing communications director should help all elements of the industry to squeeze every pound of value from some attractive assets. But I am also sympathetic to Tony Morris’s view, expressed in last month’s magazine. Marketing people simply must keep their jargon to themselves and communicate to the rest of us in clear and relevant English. They need to be bilingual; I should know, as I was one. I’m more sceptical about the appointment of a betting industry liaison executive. Since the introduction of betting shops in the early 1960s, racing has rarely managed to optimise value on its product from bookmakers, or from other complementary businesses. Having negotiated contracts for Letheby & Christopher’s racecourse catering division in the 1980s, I know how one-sided the relationship used to be between many of the racecourses and commercial interests. Few of the people who ran ‘racing’ in those days were trained to negotiate. We were. Even today I feel that racing’s interests must become yet more commercially astute in negotiating contract rights. The person who fills the liaison role should be of the calibre of the chairmen and chief executives of the big bookmakers and know their businesses and their figures inside out. Regretfully, I emerged from the TBA Seminar as a bear, rather than a bull. I therefore sold my mare at Doncaster. It was not an easy decision, but my head knows it was the right thing to do. I hope I will be able to reinvest in broodmares for less money in 12-36 months time. I am retaining my small partnership shares in a couple of horses in training with Stuart Kittow, both to support him and his staff, and because, at that new, lower level of commitment, I can afford it. Nobody is forced to own a racehorse. I fear that, like me, many other owners and small breeders will be realising that the current riskreward ratio – always a variable – is unacceptable. I hope the sales results of the next 15 months prove me wrong, but I’m not betting on it.
