CAULFIELD ON RECOLETOS: “He stays a mile and a quarter. His sire Whipper was a faster type, who enjoyed Group 1 success at Deauville at two, three and four. He is Whipper’s third Group 1 winner” time, in Australia). This represents an impressive strike-rate for a comparatively inexpensive stallion and raises expectations of Siyouni’s 2018 juveniles, which were sired at E20,000. Stamina is clearly no problem for Laurens, even though Siyouni never tackled more than a mile. Her dam, the Cape Cross mare Recambe, stayed well, as she proved by winning at up to 14 and a half furlongs in France. Recambre’s half-brother Salford Mill was a Listed winner with a Timeform rating of 116 who went on to win the Hong Kong Derby as Helene Mascot. Laurens’ third dam, the Cure The Blues mare Raysiya, was a winning half-sister to the Irish St Leger second Rayseka and to Rifada, dam of the Gr2 Prix Hocquart winner Rifapour. Raysiya has plenty of smart descendants, notably the Prix de l’Opera winner Kinnaird, the Irish 2,000 Guineas runner-up Shifting Power and the 2,000 Guineas third Ivawood, who won the Group 2 July Stakes and Group 2 Richmond Stakes as a two-year-old. Trace the female line back a few generations and you come to Rose Ness, the Charlottesville mare who also ranks as the fourth dam of Daylami and Dalakhani. 48 INVESTEC CORONATION CUP G1 EPSOM DOWNS.

Four daughters of Galileo were among the nine contenders for the Oaks, including the E1,400,000 Magic Wand and the E900,000 Forever Together. Magic Wand had beaten Forever Together by more than three lengths into second place in the Cheshire Oaks but Forever Together proved much the stronger at Epsom, recording her first win by four and a half lengths. Forever Together’s name is somewhat unimaginative, as she is a sister to the 2014 Fillies’ Mile winner Together Forever and the name Forever Together had already been carried with great distinction by an American filly who won the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf as recently as 2008. It is worth mentioning that both Together Forever and her sister Forever Together failed to win until their fourth appearance. Forever Together follows Was and Minding as the third Oaks winner by Galileo, who also sired the sires of Talent and Enable, plus the dam of Qualify. In other words, six of the last seven Oaks winners have Galileo in their pedigree, the exception being Taghrooda, who was sired by Galileo’s half-brother Sea The Stars. Forever Together’s dam Green Room is now one of those extremely rare mares with three Group 1 winners to her credit. This daughter of Theatrical was bred by Juddmonte but never went into training because of complications with one of her feet. Sold as a three-year-old for 20,000gns in February 2005, she quickly provided her buyers with a profit, as she made $240,000 at the 2006 Keeneland January Sales. Lord Shanakill, the Speightstown colt she was carrying at the time, became her first Group 1 winner when he landed the Prix Jean Prat. It is significant that Forever Together’s dam is by a son of Nureyev, as Galileo is also enjoying considerable success with mares by Pivotal, a grandson of Nureyev. He also sired Rip Van Winkle from another grand-daughter of Nureyev. Green Room’s record makes one wonder what her half-sister Spanish Fern might have achieved as a broodmare had she not suffered a fatal injury leaving the stalls in the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf in 2000. Not only was Spanish Fern a winner of the Grade 1 Yellow Ribbon Stakes, but she also had an excellent pedigree. By El Gran Senor, sire also of Juddmonte’s exceptional producer

Toussaud, Spanish Fern was out of Chain Fern, a sister to Haafhd’s excellent dam Al Bahathri. Green Room is one of two daughters of Chain Fern to have produced a Grade 1 winner. The first, Rusty Back, produced the Santa Anita Handicap winner Heatseeker to Giant’s Causeway. Another of Chain Fern’s daughters, Dayville, is the second dam of Group 1 winner Hearts Of Fire. This is also the family of Hong Kong Horse of the Year Military Attack and the hugely popular stayers Big Orange and Red Cadeaux. 50 INVESTEC DERBY G1 EPSOM DOWNS. Jun 2. 3yoc&f. 12f.
