Horses in Training - 3 Year Olds

Defining Moment

3 b f Camacho x Elfine (Invincible Spirit)

(Mr Derek Willis)

This good looking filly is a half-sister to the yard's Gomez, who has made a good start to his racing career - both are out of Elfine; an Invincible Spirit half sister to Headline News who did very well for Rae.


3 b f Excelebration – Ja One (Acclamation)

(Lady Cecil and Rae Guest)

This filly is the half-sister to a two year old winner from the hot family of Nunthorpe Stakes winner Margot Did.  Excelebration was a top-class miler at 3 & 4years old, a six-time Group winner including the Prix du Moulin & QEII, but most notably played the role of the eternal bridesmaid to wonder horse Frankel.  Rae loved this filly at the sales and was very pleased to get her.  Too backward to run at two but going well now.  


3 b f Acclamation x Midnight Shift (Night Shift)

(Bradmill Ltd)

This compact filly is home bred by Chris and Lesley Mills from a family Rae knows well, having trained the dam and five of her siblings to win, most notably Group 3 and Listed winner Miss Anabaa and Mina, the dam of Listed winner and Ayr Gold Cup second Mina Lisa.  Let us hope she can emulate them!

Velvet Charm

3 b f Excelebration x Velvet Star (Galileo)

(Mr C. J. Murfitt)

The first foal of the Galileo mare Velvet Star, she is a rangy sort from the stellar family of Dante and Dubai World Cup winner Moon Ballad and Great Voltigeur and Hardwicke Stakes winner Telescope.  Rae was delighted to get her for loyal owner Colin Murfitt.  Too backward to run at two but a lovely mover who should come on in 2017.


Lady Of The Lamp

3 b f Invincible Spirit x Lady Angola (Lord At War)

(Mrs Sonia Rogers & Airlie Stud)

This filly moves like a ballerina and is by leading sire Invincible Spirit (sire of last year's top two year old Shalaa and stallions Lawman and Mayson).  She is a half sister to Group 2 winning Duntle and is the first filly we have for her owner breeders, we are delighted they have chosen to send her here.

Miss Osier

3 ch f Mastercraftsman x Lacy Sunday (King's Best) 

(Mr Peter Saunders and Rae Guest)

A really good-looking and athletic filly by Mastercraftsman who excelled over 6f-1m at 2-3, winning the Irish 2,000 Gns; and at stud siring Group 1 winners Amazing Maria, Kingston Hill and The Grey Gatsby; she is out of Listed placed King’s Best mare Lacy Sunday.  Very good first run to finish third.

Ode To Glory

3 b f Poet's Voice x Blue Lyric (Refuse to Bend)

(The Reprobates)

An attractive filly by a top class miler by star sire Dubawi who had his first two year olds in 2015, she is out of a dual winning mare from a very fast family, her sister won over 5 furlongs and her third dam is champion 2 year old filly Blue Duster.  A winner at two!



3 ch f Kyllachy - Solfilia (Teofilo)

(RGRL Syndicate 2)

The first foal of the Teofilo mare Solfilia, a winner at two and just short of Listed class, from the reliable source of speed Kyllachy, sire of top sprinters Sole Power and The Krypton Factor; she is a bonny filly and the first Rae bought for the syndicate.

California Cliffs

3 b f Canford Cliffs – Quiet Waters (Quiet American)

(RGRL Syndicate 2)

This active filly is by the multiple Group One winning miler Canford Cliffs, a leading first season sire of Group 3 Railway Stakes winner Painted Cliffs out of the Quiet American mare Quiet Waters, the dam of two winners from two runners so far with a good black type page featuring Group winners Summertime Legacy and Mandaean close up.


3 b f Dandy Man - Carrauntoohil (Marju)

(RGRL Syndicate 2)

A sharp looking filly by good source of fast two year olds Dandy Man, the sire of among others Extortionist, leading Hong Kong sprinter Peniaphobia and top class Squats, she is from the family of Tagshira, the joint champion two year old in Germany in 2010.

Salt Whistle Bay

3 b c Royal Applause - Quantum (Alhaarth)

(Mr & Mrs J Worboys & Rae Guest)

A good looking colt by the reliable Royal Applause (sire of our own Mimic and After the Show, also Acclamation), this one is from a great – and very current – female family.  He is a brother to a number of highly rated horses from the immediate family of Power (Irish 2,000 Guineas winner) and Curvy (E P Taylor and Ribblesdale Stakes 2015) and the Hascombe family of Footstepsinthesand. 

Saradani Bay

3 b g Mawatheeq x Sadaharu (Dansili)

(Miss Victoria Markowiak)

This is a big, goodlooking horse who was not in training at two and is going to take a while to come to hand.  His sire was a high-class 1m-12f winner who won the Cumberland Lodge and was second in the Champion Stakes at four from the family of Nashwan and Nayef.  He is the second foal of an unraced Dansili mare from an interesting international family.  Many thanks to owner Vicky Markoviak for her ongoing support.
