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.

 


Coatofmanycolours

g f Hellvelyn – Madame Lafite (Dutch Art) 

(Lady Cecil & Family and Rae Guest)

The first foal of her dam, this is an attractive filly by Hellvelyn, who was a precocious & high-class 5-6f 2yo, including the Coventry Stakes with a speedy pedigree and is a proven source of speed (the Dick Poole winner La Rioja and Cornwallis winner Mrs Danvers from scant opportunities).

 


Empress Makeda

 b f Sea The Stars – Sheba Five (Five Star Day) 

 (Anthony & Sonia Rogers)

A super looking filly, typical of her sire who is one of the best racehorses ever, a 6-time Group 1 winner at 3, including the  Guineas, Derby and Arc, now a leading sire of Group 1 horses.  Her dam has produced four winners from five runners, two with big black type.  What’s not to like about that!  She went home in March when lockdown was announced and arrived back in December and we look forward to seeing what she is capable of as a three year old.


Holwah

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.


Mikasa

b f Exceed and Excel - Minalisa

(Mr Chris Mills)

This attractive filly is very like her Listed winning dam Minalisa and we hope she can prove as good a racehorse.  Rae has trained three generations of this Chris Mills family to racecourse success and Chris does a great job breeding brilliantly fast horses.  By Exceed and Excel, this one looks sure to be another.

 


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. 


Walkill

b f Kitten’s Joy – Time Being (Zamindar)

(Reiko & Michael Baum)

A rangy filly who is out of a full sister to Group 1 winner Timepiece from the Juddmonte family of Passage of Time, Time Test, Twice Over etc, she is by champion sire Kitten’s Joy, the sire of Roaring Lion, Hawkbill and many top performers in Europe.  A blue blood indeed, we are thrilled to have for new US based owners Reiko and Michael Baum. The filly is poised to run at the back end of this year.


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.
