Data Book European Pattern and two fillies who were placed in the Oaks (Melikah and All Too Beautiful). All Too Beautiful in turn became the dam of Oaks runner-up Wonder Of Wonders. We have also seen Galileo sire three winners apiece of the Derby and Oaks, while Sea The Stars already has a Derby and an Oaks winner to his credit. Galileo’s sons New Approach and Nathaniel have also sired winners of the Oaks. Consequently, the Derby or the Oaks must rank high among the potential targets for any horse inbred to Urban Sea, such as Masar. This tough colt is by Galileo’s Derby-winning son New Approach out of Khawlah, a grand-daughter of Oaks third Melikah (who was also second in the Irish Oaks). Masar is therefore inbred 3 x 4 to Urban Sea and he is also inbred 3 x 4 to Ahonoora, sire of the Derby-winning Dr Devious and broodmare sire of New Approach. It is worth adding that Melikah was a daughter of Lammtarra, winner of the 1995 Derby. Having finished a fine third in the 2,000 Guineas, Masar appreciated the extra half mile of the Derby to the extent that he became the third generation of Derby winners from his male line. It looks as though Galileo is going to exert a lasting impact on the Derby, in much the same way that the Mill Reef male line once did. Masar’s dam Khawlah looked to have a bright future early in her three-year-old season when she defeated the high-class South African filly Mahbooba to take the Group 3 UAE Oaks and then accounted for the future Group 1 winner Master Of Hounds in the Group 2 UAE Derby. Unfortunately, it was more than 13 months before Khawlah returned to action and she never recaptured the form she had shown on Tapeta. Khawlah in turn is a half-sister to Vancouverite, a French Group 2 winner who earned a Timeform rating of 118. It is also relevant that Khawlah is a daughter of Cape Cross, who was responsible for Urban Sea’s brilliant son Sea The Stars and for the outstanding Ouija Board, who produced the dual Derby winner Australia to Galileo. 51 QIPCO PRIX DU JOCKEY CLUB G1 CHANTILLY.

Storm Cat SECOND HAPPINESS b 02 Miesque

For the second time in eight days, the Niarchos family enjoyed Classic success with a descendant of the great Miesque, when Study Of Man added the Prix du Jockey-Club to Alpha Centauri’s Irish 1,000 Guineas. Whereas Alpha Centauri is out of a grand-daughter of Miesque, Study Of Man is out of Miesque’s daughter Second Happiness, a lightly-raced Storm Cat filly whose best effort was a third at Compiegne. Clearly Second Happiness didn’t rank among Miesque’s best daughters, which were led by Alpha Centauri’s second dam East Of The Moon. This daughter of Private Account emulated Miesque’s victory in the Poule d’Essai des Pouliches before also winning the Prix de Diane, a race in which Miesque had

suffered one of her rare defeats. Miesque also won the 1,000 Guineas and started her broodmare career with two Classic winners, with the Poule d’Essai des Poulains winner Kingmambo preceding East Of The Moon. Clearly Classic success for Study Of Man came as no surprise, especially when he is a son of Japan’s pre-eminent stallion Deep Impact. Deep Impact’s 2015 crop also features the 2,000 Guineas winner Saxon Warrior and the Japanese Derby winner Wagnerian. Study Of Man represents a very successful nick, as he is one of nine black-type winners among the Japanese Triple Crown winner’s 60 foals of racing age out of daughters of Storm Cat. The others include Kizuna (Group 1 Japanese Derby and Group 2 Prix Niel), A Shin Hikari (Group 1 Prix d’Ispahan), Ayusan (Group 1 Japanese 1,000 Guineas), Lachesis (Group 1 Queen Elizabeth II Cup) and Real Steel (Group 1 Dubai Turf). Real Steel is arguably the most relevant to Study Of Man, as his dam Loves Only Me was out of Miesque’s daughter Monevassia, a sister to the excellent Kingmambo and to the Group 1 sire Miesque’s Son. Real Steel did much of his racing at around nine furlongs but it was by only a neck he failed to beat Kitasan Black in the Japanese St Leger. This suggests that Study Of Man should stay a mile and a half. Second Happiness was originally sent to Japan as a mate for the Niarchos family’s Arc winner Bago but also visited Deep Impact in 2011 and 2014. She was transferred to Europe while carrying Study Of Man and has since produced a 2016 colt and a 2018 filly to Galileo.
