Six foals on the ground- six fillies. Eight more to come and according to sexing (which to date has only been 66% correct!),we can expect two more fillies and six colts.
The saving grace is that the fillies on the ground are all nice types. They are by New Bay,Iffraaj,Wootton Bassett,Acclamation,Pride of Dubai and Harzand.
Otherwise on the stud we are starting to think which yearlings might fit which sales. We have a New Approach colt,an Acclamation colt, a Mayson colt and a Gleneagles colt along with fillies by Dutch Art, Intello,Brazen Beau and Teofilo.
On the track, we will have two runners in France this year- Borderforce and DoReMiFaSol ( who has just been covered by Le Havre and will run in foal for 120 days). They may both run at Longchamp on April 8th In the UK, we have Girls Talk with Michael Bell, Dizzy G with Karl Burke and Miss Mila B with Ed Vaughan.
In addition, the syndicate- London Scots for Doddie -(which was set up to donate funds and all prize money to Doddie Weir’s Motor Neuron Disease Foundation)- has seen our hurdler be 3rd, 2nd and 2nd , with the last two by a nose. We look forward to more prize money for Doddie’s charity from the horse (Behindthelines) trained in Scotland by Lucinda Russell.
More to come as the season progresses.
