  • NEW John Moore Puzzled by Beauty Generation Loss

    Monday, 18th November 2019
    In Hong Kong, trainer John Moore has expressed his concern for two-time Horse Of The Year Beauty Generation (Road To Rock-Stylish Bel, by Bel Esprit) after the champion gelding was beaten for the second time this preparation when finishing third behind Waikuku and Ka Ying Star in Sunday’s Gr2 Jockey Club Mile at Sha Tin. “When he came into the straight I expected him to kick and put two [lengths] on Waikuku, but he didn’t,” Moore told the South China Morning Post. “There’s two things I can tweak before the big day [the Gr1 Hong Kong Mile next month] and we’ll have him cherry ripe.” Forgiven for his first defeat given the handicap conditions and a tricky resuming run, jockey Zac Purton was happy with how the horse felt on Sunday and is optimistic moving forward. “He’s better than that and at level weights next time, hopefully he can stand up.”
  • NEW Arrowfield Celebrates Indy Champ's Feat

    Monday, 18th November 2019
    This Year’s Yasuda Kinen winner Indy Champ (Stay Gold-Will Power, by King Kamehameha) claimed Japan’s Mile Championship over the weekend to become the seventh horse, following Maurice (Arrowfield Stud) in 2015, to claim both spring and autumn Gr1 mile races in the same year. The Stay Gold colt, out of a half-sister to first-up Gr1 George Ryder S. winner Real Impact (Arrowfield Stud), who kicked off his autumn campaign with a third in the Mainichi Okan (Gr2, 1,800m) on October 6, is headed for his first overseas challenge in the Hong Kong Mile (Gr1, 1,600m) to be held on December 8. This win marked trainer Hidetaka Otonashi’s eleventh JRA-G1 title following the Yasuda Kinen, which he won with this horse, and his third Mile Championship victory following his win with Company in 2009 and Mikki Isle (Arrowfield Stud) in 2016. Jockey Kenichi Ikezoe marked his twenty-fifth JRA-G1 win following his 2018 Arima Kinen with Blast Onepiece, and his fourth Mile Championship title following his win with Durandal (2003 and 2004) and Eishin Apollon (2011).

  • US Judge Dismisses Kentucky Derby Lawsuit

    Monday, 18th November 2019
    In significant US news, TDN reports that a federal judge has ruled against a lawsuit filed by owners Gary and Mary West, whose Kentucky Derby favourite Maximum Security became the first ever horse to be disqualified in America’s most famous race after stewards adjudged that he had caused significant interference in the event. The judge, Karen Caldwell, was fairly succinct in her judgement in denying the application to overturn the stewards’ ruling, saying: “Kentucky’s regulations make clear that the disqualification is not subject to judicial review. Further, the disqualification procedure does not implicate an interest protected under the Due Process Clause of the U.S. Constitution. Accordingly, the Court must grant the motion to dismiss.” The race was awarded to runner-up Country House.
  • Castelvecchio Rated Amongst World’s Top 50

    Monday, 18th November 2019
    Gr1-winning 3YO Castelvecchio (Dundeel-St.Therese, by Dehere) has been rated among one of the Top 50 racehorses in the world. The respected Longines World Rankings, which ranks Winx seventh for her 2019 form, has included seven Australian runners in the premium echelon. Also a high class 2YO who won the $2 million Inglis Millenium after exploding from the rear of the field, Gr1 Cox Plate runner-up Castelvecchio will join his Champion Miler sire Dundeel at Arrowfield Stud when he retires. He was given the same 120 rating as Hartnell and Trapeze Artist to sit joint twenty-eighth. Above that trio on 124 is Santa Ana Lane, followed by Happy Clapper (123) and Nature Strip (122). Topping the rankings on 128 are three horses: Enable, Waldgeist and Crystal Ocean.

  • Donna Brothers Takes PETA to Task

    Monday, 18th November 2019
    Former leading jockey, and now media personality for NBC Sports and NBCSN, Donna Brothers, has penned a provocative, but illuminating, article on her website. In an age of polical correctness where many industry leaders are walking on egg shells to appease warranted welfare concerns, the popular presenter has put together a thought-provoking look at PETA’s operations, and has labelled them as a straight out bully.

    At Riccarton Park in New Zealand, Arrowfield Stud's deceased, multiple Champion Australian Sire Redoute's Choice (Danehill-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) added a posthumous Gr1 success when talented 3YO filly Loire (Redoute's Choice-Syrah, by  Traditionally) graduated quickly to the top level to take-out the 47th running of the prestigious $300,000 Gr1 Gavelhouse.com NZ 1000 Guineas (1600m). In what was a compact finale, Loire defied Jennifer Eccles by 0.4 length with Travelling Light only 0.5 length further abreast. The home-bred filly took her record to 2 wins and 2 placings (including the Listed El Roca - Sir Colin Meads Trophy & Gr3 Hawke's Bay Breeders Gold Trail Stakes) from 6 starts for $193,250 in earnings. Bred by Trelawney Thoroughbred Ltd, Loire is out of a half-sister to Gr1 Queensland Oaks winning filly Vouvray.

  • 36 Gr1 Victories Each for Redoute’s & Trelawney

    Monday, 18th November 2019
    Trelawney Stud’s Brent & Cherry Taylor supported Redoute’s Choice several times during his 19-year stud career and it says much about their faith in him, and his enduring class that their best result, as owners as well as breeders, arrived in his sixteenth crop. Their home-bred filly Loire prevailed in a high-pressure finish to win Saturday’s $300,000 CJC NZ One Thousand Guineas 1600m G1 at Riccarton Park, from Jennifer Eccles and the favourite Travelling Light. It was only the sixth start and the maiden stakes win for Loire, who is the fifth foal of Syrah (by Traditionally), the thirty-sixth Gr1 winner for her champion sire and, as Cherry Taylor notes, the thirty-sixth Gr1 winner from Trelawney in the Taylors’ ownership. “We loved Redoute’s Choice and thought he would make a super broodmare sire so tried to buy and breed as many as we could afford. We sent Syrah because we thought he was the best stallion in the Southern Hemisphere and wanted to breed to him, and she deserved to go to him being a half-sister to Gr1 winner Vouvray and the dam of Gr1 winner A Touch of Ruby.” Trelawney also bred Redoute’s Choice’s sixteenth Gr1 winner Allez Wonder (2009 MRC Toorak H. G1), bred & raced his stakes-winner Richie McHorse and, with Brent’s mother Faith, currently race multiple city winner Special Light.

  • Redoute’s Choice Story far From Over

    Monday, 18th November 2019
    Eight months after the death of Redoute’s Choice, it’s clear that neither his record nor his story is finished. Saturday’s Gr1 heroine Loire (see above) is his fourth Gr1 winner in three countries over the past 12 months (after Galaxy Star in Perth, Champion 3YO Colt The Autumn Sun in Sydney and Danceteria in Europe). Furthermore, she is Redoute’s Choice’s seventeenth individual Gr1 Classic winner, his second NZ 1000 Guineas winner (after King’s Rose in 2010), and takes his progeny’s tally of 2019 stakes wins to 21. Saturday was also a productive day for Redoute’s Choice, the reigning Champion Broodmare Sire, and he leads the 2019/20 Australian premiership in that category with $11.1 million. His daughters figure as the dams of Sandown Gr3 winners Jamaican Rain and Teleplay, and at Newcastle, the Max Lees 2YO Classic winner Tilia Rose and inaugural $1 million The Hunter winner Savatiano. Arrowfield graduate Game of Thorns (runner-up Newcastle JC Spring S. G3) and Palurien (runner-up MRC Twilight Glow S. LR) are also out of mares by the legendary sire. Owners & trainers would be delighted that some breeders are prepared to offer yearlings from Redoute’s Choice’s penultimate 40-foal crop. They include 9 lots catalogued for the 2020 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale: drafts of Arrowfield (4), Baramul (2), Bhima, Rosemont & Sledmere.

    At Newcastle Jockey Club in NSW, deceased Darley stallion Street Cry (Machiavellian-Helen Street, by Troy) celebrated a lucrative feature race triumph when Godolphin’s 5YO mare Savatiano (Street Cry-Retsina, by Redoute's Choice) was expertly handled by outstanding NZ hoop James McDonald to land the $1,000,000 Hunter (1300m). Crossing from a sticky 14 gate, McDonald then controlled the tempo before letting down the talented mare to accelerate clear of a classy field and win by 0.89 lengths over Tactical Advantage, who flew late down the outside. Bon Amis was 2.25-lengths adrift of the inner in third. Given the relative ease of the victory, one's initial thinking that McDonald had "stolen a march" on his fellow jockeys was quickly dispelled with notification that Savatiano had clocked a course record time of 1:15.76. The well deserved victory took Savatiano's record to 8 wins (including the Gr2 Tristarc, Gr3 Moreton Stakes & Listed Mona Lisa) and 11 placings (including the Gr3 Tibbie, Gr2 Blazer, Gr3 Maybe Mahal, Gr2 Millie Fox, Gr3 Newmarket, Gr3 Dark Jewel & Gr1 Tatt's Tiara) for $1,420,810 in earnings. McDonald was effusive in his post race comments, "She jumped straight to the front. Controlled the race. Never felt like getting beaten. She was just cruising. She's a marvel."

  • Blue Army Marches To A Winning Beat

    Monday, 18th November 2019
    At the tail end of the 2019 Spring Carnival, Godolphin’s galloping blue army struck a mighty blow on the eastern seaboard, one which might have been even bigger but for a losing photo finish at Sandown. Kick-started by the opening event on an all black-type Sandown card in Melbourne’s south-east where the Anthony Freedman-trained 2YO colt Hanseatic swept to an almost 2-length triumph in the Merson Cooper Stakes, the good fortune just rolled on. Palurien finished runner-up in the Listed Twilight Glow Stakes for 3YO fillies before Viridine scored a stylish win in the Listed Doveton Stakes. Still at Sandown, evergreen Home of the Brave went within a nose bob of landing the Gr3 Kevin Heffernan Stakes. Attention then switched to Newcastle’s stand-alone Saturday meeting where a quick one-two effort by 3YO filly Asiago (Gr3 NZB NJC Spring Stakes) and the mare Savatiano (in the inaugural $1 Million Hunter) ensured a lucrative payday for the powerful stable.

  • Ethereal Granddaughter Dominant at Tauranga

    Monday, 18th November 2019
    Pencarrow Stud and NZ Bloodstock principal Sir Peter Vela’s progressive mare Supera overcame a wide run in transit throughout to dominate her rivals in the closing stages of the Gr2 Gartshore Tauranga Stakes (1600m) on Saturday. According to NZ Racing Desk, The Ken and Bev Kelso-trained 5YO had looked a Gr1 winner in waiting last season as her mentors adopted a patient approach with her as she rose through the grades. Rounding off her 4YO season with a win at Gr2 level in the Travis Stakes (2000m) at Te Rapa following a narrow defeat in the Gr1 New Zealand Thoroughbred Breeders’ Stakes (1600m) at Te Aroha, Supera opened her latest campaign with a narrow defeat over 1400m at Ellerslie three weeks ago. Expected to improve significantly with the run, any predictions of a comfortable victory looked well off the mark in the early stages at Tauranga with rider Michael Coleman forced to sit three-wide at the rear of the eight horse field on the Savabeel even money favourite as The Mitigator and Consensus set up a solid speed out in front. Coleman edged his way forward approaching the home bend before asking Supera for a serious effort at the 300m. Supera hit full speed in three to four big bounds as she raced past The Mitigator to score with contemptuous ease by 2-lengths with Tiptronic narrowly shading Consensus for third. Kelso is confident the graddaughter of champion Ethereal has what it takes to snare Gr1 glory as he plots a path for her over the coming weeks. “All going well we will go to the Captain Cook (Gr1, 1600m) at Trentham and then get up over ground,” he said. “We’ll then go to Ellerslie for the Zabeel Classic (Gr1, 2000m).

  • Brazen Beau Filly Breaks 14 Year Male Streak

    Monday, 18th November 2019
    Inglis Easter Yearling Sale graduate Pretty Brazen (Brazen Beau) became the first filly in 14 years to eclipse the colts and geldings in the Gr2 Sandown Guineas (1600m). She was also one of four Inglis graduates to earn winning black type at the Melbourne track on its biggest day of the year. The well bred sophomore was offered at the 2018 Inglis Easter Sale by Coolmore Stud and purchased by McEvoy Mitchell Racing for $700,000 on behalf of Linda and Graham Huddy’s Peachester Lodge. “She was a big, beautiful, athletic filly at the sales and of course she already had a great pedigree,” a thrilled Linda Huddy said. “Even if she never made it to the track, she was always going to be worth a lot of money and she’s exactly what I went to the sale looking to buy. Pretty Brazen, one of 23 stakes-winning 3YOs in Australia so far this season that are graduates of Inglis auctions, was bred by Queensland-based Denis and Claire O’Brien. “I’m absolutely thrilled, particularly for Linda and Graham Huddy,” Denis O’Brien said. “$700,000 is a lot of money to pay for a yearling, but she was an outstanding sort and it is very rewarding to see her run up to the promise she has always shown.” He added, “It’s a huge credit to the team at Coolmore Stud, who did an exceptional job of raising her and I’m sure they’re excited to be offering her half-sister by American Pharoah – who is also stunning – at Easter next year. Pretty Brazen is the fifth Australian stakes-winner for her Darley Victoria-based sire Brazen Beau (I Am Invincible) and one of four stakes winners for her extraordinary dam Pretty Penny (Encosta de Lago).

    Monday, 18th November 2019
    In a blistering display at Sha Tin on Sunday, Aethero (Sebring-Pinocchio, by Encosta de Lago) led throughout and showcased sustained speed to defeat fellow Inglis graduates Hot King Prawn, Beat The Clock and Full Of Beauty in sizzling time. Aethero was bred by Tyreel Stud’s Linda and Laurence Monds, and was purchased by George Moore for $575,000, with their five-strong draft at the 2018 Easter Yearling Sale also including eventual Inglis banner winner Espaaniyah. “We bought Pinocchio in foal to Foxwedge, the year we took over Tyreel Stud,” Linda Monds said. “We’ve always tried to find the right physical match for her and she has just done the most phenomenal job,” while noting that the mare is also the dam of high-class Sydney-based Gr2-winning sprinter and Inglis Classic Sale graduate Classique Legend. “She’s now in foal to I Am Invincible and Easter 2020 can’t come soon enough for the So You Think half-brother to Aethero and Classique Legend, who we firmly believe is another superstar in the making,” added Monds. Aethero – trained by champion trainer John Moore – has now stamped his claim on the Gr1 Hong Kong Sprint at the International meeting on December 8.
