Study of Man | Scoop Dyga

Classic winner Study of Man (Ire) (Deep Impact {Jpn}–Second Happiness, by Storm Cat) has been retired and will stand his first season at Lanwades Stud in 2020, the stud announced on Monday. His fee will be revealed later. A Flaxman Stables homebred for the Niarchos Family, the Pascal Bary trainee scored in the 2018 G1 QIPCO Prix du Jockey Club, one start after his win in the G2 Prix Greffulhe at Saint-Cloud. A winner of his only start at two, Study of Man also filled the frame in a further five group races, among them the 2019 G1 Prix Ganay and G1 Prix d’Ispahan. He goes to stud with a mark of 11-3-3-2 and $1,353,967 in earnings.

“We are thrilled to see French Derby winner Study of Man join fellow Derby winners Sir Percy (GB) (Mark of Esteem {Ire}) and Sea The Moon (Ger) (Sea The Stars {Ire}), as well as Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint winner Bobby’s Kitten (Kitten’s Joy), at Lanwades.” said the stud’s Owner and General Manager, Kirsten Rausing. “I am immensely grateful to Maria Niarchos Gouaze and the entire Niarchos Family for letting us have Study of Man at Lanwades.

“I very much look forward to our new joint venture with Study of Man, a really good-looking horse with exceptional presence, great racing performance and possessing a truly world-class pedigree. As a son and grandson of racing legends, he should make an outstanding addition to the worldwide breeding industry, contributing an outcross for many mares.”

Multiple champion blue hen Miesque (Nureyev) is the April foal’s second dam, responsible for European highweight East of the Moon (Private Account), MG1SW and successful sire Kingmambo (Mr. Prospector), GSW Mingun (A.P. Indy), GSW & MG1SP Miesque’s Son (Mr. Prospector) and SW & GSP Moon Is Up (Woodman). Additional highweights descending from that legendary two-time GI Breeders’ Cup Mile heroine are Alpha Centauri (Ire) (Mastercraftsman {Ire}), Rumplestiltskin (Ire) (Danehill), and Real Steel (Jpn) (Deep Impact {Jpn}).


Derby Winner Masar to Stand at Dalham Hall Alongside Too Darn Hot


Masar | Racing Post

2018 G1 Investec Derby hero Masar (Ire) (New Approach {Ire}-Khawlah {Ire}, by Cape Cross {Ire}) will join champion & G1SW Too Darn Hot (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}) at Dalham Hall Stud in 2020, Darley announced on Monday. Their fees will be released at a later date. Bred by Godolphin and trained by Charlie Appleby, the Classic winner also won the G3 Craven S. at three after saluting in the G3 Solario S. as a juvenile. He sports four wins in 11 starts, and was also third in both the 2018 G1 English 2000 Guineas and 2017 G1 Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere. Injury cut short the remainder of the son of UAE highweight Khawlah’s 3-year-old campaign and he was retired after two runs at four.

“It is an honour to stand a horse of the quality of Masar,” said Darley’s Director of Stallions Sam Bullard. “He won the race we all strive to win but had the speed to beat a Group 2-winning sprinter on his six-furlong debut before going on to win the G3 Solario S. He became the first Derby winner to wear the Godolphin blue and beat champion Roaring Lion (Kitten’s Joy) all three times they met. From one of the best families in the studbook, he had a higher juvenile rating than his illustrious relatives Galileo (Ire) and Sea The Stars (Ire). Prudent breeders will have him on their list.”

A Watership Down Stud homebred for Lord Lloyd-Webber, ‘TDN Rising Star’ Too Darn Hot was slated to stand under the Darley banner at Dalham Hall since last November. Highweighted at two in England after wins in the G3 Solario S., G2 Champagne S. and G1 Dewhurst S. in succession, the bay returned a three to capture both the G1 Qatar Prix Jean Prat and the G1 Qatar Sussex S. in his final two starts for trainer John Gosden. He was also runner-up in the G1 Irish 2000 Guineas and G2 Dante S. and third in Royal Ascot’s G1 St. James’s Palace S. in a nine-start career. The son of English highweight and 2009 G1 Yorkshire Oaks winner Dar Re Mi, who also struck in the G1 Pretty Polly S. in Ireland and in the G1 Dubai Sheema Classic in the UAE, sustained a career-ending injury and was retired in early August.

“When we set out to create Watership Down Stud with the purchase of Darara, we wanted to breed the best,” said Simon Marsh, Racing Manager for Watership Down Stud. “Too Darn Hot comprises everything the Lloyd Webbers set out to achieve. He has taken us all on an incredible journey and has everything you want in a stallion-talent, precocity, pedigree and looks.”

Own-Brother To Ghaiyyath (Dubawi ex Nightime) To Headline Goffs November Foal Sale
Goffs is delighted to announce that the own-brother to Group 1 winner Ghaiyyath will headline a top class catalogue for the 2019 Goffs November Foal Sale.  Bred by Dermot Weld’s Springbank Way Stud, the March-born colt foal is by Dubawi out of the Irish 1000 Guineas winning Galileo mare Nightime. 

Ghaiyyath (pictured) topped the November Foal Sale at Goffs in 2015 when selling for €1.1 million, the highest price ever for a colt foal in Ireland.  Trained by Charlie Appleby for Godolphin, he went on to win the Group 3 Autumn Stakes at Newmarket as a two year old, and the following season won twice at Group level in France, including the Group 2 Prix d’Harcourt, as well as being placed in the Group 1 Prix Ganay.  Ghaiyyath’s most impressive performance to date was his brilliant 14 length win in the Group 1 Grosser Preis von Baden at Baden Baden in September of this year.

This regally bred Dubawi colt foal is also a half-brother to Zhukova, who provided Dermot Weld with another major international training success when winning the Grade 1 Man O’War Stakes at Belmont in 2017 – the pinnacle of an impressive six black type victories for the mare.

Offered by The Castlebridge Consignment, the son of Dubawi and Nightime will head up a stellar foal catalogue with a world class sire profile that includes Dark Angel, Invincible Spirit, Kingman, Lope De Vega, and Sea The Stars amongst many others.

Commenting on the Dubawi colt out of Nightime, Goffs Group Chief Executive Henry Beeby said: 

“Dermot Weld created history at Goffs when Ghaiyyath topped our November Foal Sale in 2015, setting a new record for a colt foal in Ireland as well as being Europe’s highest foal price that year.  That Mr Weld is returning to Goffs with the own-brother this year is a wonderful endorsement of the November Sale and of the Goffs service.  I saw the colt in the summer and can report that he is a stunner.

This Dubawi foal out of Nightime exemplifies the quality and potential on offer this year at Goffs November Sale.  Fresh from a very successful Orby Sale, the Goffs marketing team and international agents are already working hard to promote the November Sale to pinhookers and international end-users alike”.

The Goffs November Foal Sale catalogue will be published and available online on Monday 14 October. 

Goffs November Foal and Breeding Stock Sale will take place from 18 – 23 November 2019.



Kingman’s Kinross Another Rising Star at Newmarket

5th at NEW, Gr. Stk, £8,000 Weatherbys Design and Print Novice S. (7f) Winner: Kinross (GB), c, 2 by Kingman (GB)

By Tom Frary

The subject of support for Saturday’s Weatherbys Design and Print Novice S. at Newmarket, Julian Richmond-Watson’s newcomer Kinross (GB) (Kingman {GB}) showed why with an emphatic eight-length success for the Ralph Beckett stable. Recovering from a slightly tardy start to race in mid-division early, the 3-1 second favourite moved to the front passing two out and left Godolphin’s promising Doncaster winner Raaeb (Ire) (Raven’s Pass) standing from there. Finest Sound (Ire) (Exceed and Excel {Aus}), who had finished in the vicinity of the TDN Rising Star Palace Pier (GB) (Kingman {GB}) and smart Via de Vega (Fr) (Lope de Vega {Ire}) on his first two starts at Sandown, was a further 3 1/4 lengths behind in third giving the form a sound look. Ballydoyle’s newcomer Vatican City (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), the full-brother to Gleaneagles (Ire), Marvellous (Ire), Happily (Ire) et al, was fifth after meeting some trouble in running.

Winning jockey Harry Bentley said, “It was very straightforward and I managed to get a nice tow into it–I wanted him to learn as much as possible and I gave him a slap down the shoulder before the three pole to see what I had and there was tonnes underneath me. He came out of the dip incredibly well and has given me all the right signals. I just wanted to manage expectations today and not get too excited, but you can’t help but be excited to be honest. He went through the motions incredibly easily and I found myself getting to the front easily. The ground is good or good-to-soft, but it is drying and quicker ground will be no problem for him.”

Kinross is currently the last known foal out of the Listed Gillies Fillies’ S. winner Ceilidh House (GB) (Selkirk), who stayed 11 furlongs for these connections. Her dam Villa Carlotta (GB) (Rainbow Quest) won the Listed Blue Wind S. and Listed Premio Giovanni Falck and also is the second dam of the G3 Solario S. winner and G1 Poule d’Essai des Poulains runner-up First Selection (Spa) (Diktat {GB}). The third dam is the Listed Lupe S. winner and G3 Rockfel S. runner-up Subya (GB) (Night Shift), who was also responsible for the GII Virginia Derby winner and GI Hollywood Derby runner-up Battle of Hastings (GB) (Royal Applause {GB}).

5th-Newmarket, £8,000, Novice, 10-5, 2yo, 7fT, 1:26.02, g/s.
