Our winners came slowly in the first few months last year but since the flat opened in 2019 we have seen some very exciting horses, bright prospects for the year ahead.

When Saxon Warrior won the 2000 guineas in 2018 we had a lot to be proud of as we bred and sold his dam Maybe. It was a great thrill to see the follow up on the 4th of May when Magna Grecia won the 2019 2000 guineas  where we had also bred and sold his dam Cabaret.

With only one month of the new season gone three very exciting horses, which we sold as yearlings, are making a name for themselves. Broome has won two Derby trials and is on his way to Epsom. Full Authority the first 2YO runner from last years draft, stormed in at Chester and is now headed for a 2YO group race at Royal Ascot. Added to these is Solid Stone’s recent victory and he is now headed for the GR2 King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot.

All the above were the progeny of different mares which have been carefully selected and assembled over thirty five years.

April-June

Broome

12th May 2019

Broome won the Ballysax Stakes (Group 3) on April 6th and went for the Derrinstown Stud Derby trial at Leopardstown over 1m2f.  Sent off as a 2/5 favourite he never looked in danger winning by an ever extending two and a half lengths.  We all look forward to seeing him either at Epsom on June 1st or at the Irish Derby on June 29th.

 
Full Authority

9th May 2019

Full Authority (Kingman X Ashley Hall) was our first 2YO runner of the year. He was sold in Book 1 at Newmarket to his owner Sheikh Abdullah Almalek Alsabah.  His trainer David O’Meara had been singing his praises and he did not disappoint when making his debut at the British Stallion EBF Maiden Stakes at Chester.  This race started the career of Mehmas, a yearling we sold a few years back, and now a sire at Tallyho.  We can only hope that Full Authority is just as successful.

He broke smartly from the stalls and went clear inside the final furlong to win by six lengths. He is now heading for Ascot either to the Norfolk or the Coventry.
Roulston Scar

28th April 2019

Roulston Scar (Lope de Vega X Pussycat Lips) was placed three times as a 2YO so a win was not far away. Making his first handicap start and his first start of the season on April 28th he showed the field a clean pair of heels from the stalls.  Having made all the running he went clear at the 1f pole and kept on well to win by one and a half lengths.  He will obviously improve from this run and his official rating of 82 may not last long.

Pussycat Lips has a Dawn Approach yearling, a Churchill foal and is back in foal to Churchill.
Three Saints Bay

20th April 2019

Three Saints Bay (Kodiac X Fiuise) was already a four time winner and placed five times at 2 and 3. He was making its seasonal debut in the Silver Arrow Handicap at Musselburgh and though sent off at 6/1 made no mistake when coasting in by four and a half lengths.  With a now official rating of 102 he may have to step up to pattern racing like his younger brother Barbill.  He made smooth headway to lead at the 1f pole and went clear in the final furlong.

His dam Fiuise has a Fast Company yearling, a Holy Roman Emperor foal and is in foal to Muharrar.
Solid Stone

16th April 2019

Solid Stone (Shamerdal X Landmark) had won his maiden as a 2YO over 7f and appreciated this step up to 1m2f in his first outing at 3. Held up by Ryan Moore at the back of the field he made his effort to challenge 2f out and led at the 1f mark.  He stayed on gamely inside the final furlong to win by half a length.

Landmark’s progeny all improve with age and we would like to compliment Solid Stone’s owner Saeed Suhail and his trainer Sir Michael Stoute for their patience. He may have one more run before he takes his place in a GR2 Kind Edward  VII Stakes at Royal Ascot.
Broome

6th April 2019

Broome (Australia X Sweepstake) won his maiden as a 2YO and was runner up at GR1 and GR2 level. He made his seasonal debut in the Ballysax Stakes (Group 3) at Leopardstown and won by eight lengths, pulling right away from the field.  His trainer suggested he might have another run before heading for the Epsom Derby on June 1st.

Broome’s sire Australia also won the Epsom Derby and Australia’s dam Ouija Board won the Oaks on the same track. Broome is out of Sweepstake, a listed winner and group placed, and hails from the same family as our outstanding mare Tyranny.  With Tyranny now dead it looks like Sweepstake will step into her shoes.
