Horses in Training - 3 Year Olds

Bahia Star

b f Twilight Son – Bahia Breeze (Mister Baileys)

(BB Bloodstock)

This bonny filly is from the first crop of Haydock Sprint Cup winner Twilight Son out of massive yard favourite Bahia Breeze, a real rags-to-riches story who is proving a successful broodmare having already produced Listed placed Brioniya and Group 2 winner Beshaayir.  She broke her maiden on her first run out this year so lots to look forward to for owner/breeders BB Bloodstock.

Cape Columbus

b g Acclamation – Cape Factor (Oratorio) 

(Mr Derek Willis)

The first by his celebrated dam Listed winner Cape Factor to come into training here, this is a really bonny happy looking colt by a top stallion from the family of former stable star dual Group 1 winning Serious Attitude.  We are delighted to have him for owner/breeder Derek Willis.



Gr f  Dark Angel - Electrify (Invincible Spirit)

(Mr Derek Willis)

A dual winner at 6 furlongs in France with some good form from only four attempts for Jerome Reynier, Derek bought her as a racing and breeding prospect in the Tattersalls July sales. She looks great value ! Her second dam is Group 2, 3 and Listed winner Elopa (GER), the dam of two black type performers in Australian Group 3 winner Mugatoo and Goodwood Listed winner Elik. She is also related to recent Listed winner Declaring Love.

Evening Song

B filly  Twilight Son - Zerka (Invincible Spirit)

(The Good Reason Partners)

This winning filly was second on her last start at 7 furlongs for Marco Botti and bought at the Tattersalls July sale.  She was recommended by jockey Jimmy Quinn (who, incidentally, rode subsequent Group 1 winner Mr Emma to her maiden win) as a candidate for the race Rae would like to win the most – the Charlie and Joyce Guest Memorial Stakes at Newmarket’s July course on 31 July 2021.  It’s a big ask but you need to be in it to win it!

b f Kingman - Shimah

(Mr Ed Babington)

This Shadwell-bred filly was trained by Owen Burrows at two, not finishing out of the first four in four runs and showing a good deal of promise.  She is by talented Juddmonte stallion Kingman, sire of Group 1 performers Palace Pier, King of Comedy and Roseman from a fast family.  Her dam, Shimah (Storm Cat), was joint Champion 2 year old filly in Ireland in 2008, a winner and second in the Moyglare Stud Stakes Group 1 and she is already the dam of a Listed winning sprinter in Mushir.  This is just the sort of filly that Rae does well with. 

Jewel In My Crown

g f Mukhadram – Rosa Grace (Lomitas) 

(Mr Eammon Duggan)

Another filly out of our former stable star Rosa Grace (on the Wall of Fame as the winner of the Listed Ballymacoll Stakes), a half sister to the as yet unraced Rosa Gold.  She is by Group 1 winning Shamardal horse Mukhadram, winner of the Coral Eclipse Stakes in 2014 so should be a staying type. She's had two good runs as a two year old and has gone for a break until next year.

Rita The Cheetah

b f Prince of Lir – Munaawashat (Marju)

(Lady Cecil & Family and Rae Guest)

This racy compact filly is out of a five time winning mare by first season sire Prince of Lir, a precocious and good looking horse by Kodiac, he was the winner of the Norfolk Stakes and retired to stud at two.  Despite running very green this filly won her maiden race at Wolverhampton in October and showed a lot of potential for the future. 

Waltzing Queen

b f  Helmet  - Alsaaden (Acclamation)

(BB Thoroughbreds)

A rangy first foal out of a winning mare whose dam was yard favourite Bahia Breeze, this filly was bought in utero by BB Bloodstock and brought up at Pantile Stud next to her grand-dam and cousins (one of whom is in the box opposite!), she is by high-class Australian sire Helmet, the sire of Thunder Snow.  She has taken a while and got her first run at the very end of November.
