STAFFORDSTOWN CONSIGNED YEARLING TOPS A MILLION AT GOFFS
Yearling filly by GALILEO out of high class juvenile STARLIT SANDS was sold at Goffs Orby Sale yesterday for €1,050,000 when consigned by Staffordstown. STARLIT SANDS won the Gr.3 Prix d’Arenberg as well as finishing second in the Gr.2 Queen Mary. She is from the family of Gr.3 winner SONGERIE and the Gr.1 King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes winner PETOSKI. She was purchased by Oliver St Lawrence acting for Fawzi Nass and Oliver said “Fawzi and I came over to Ireland about three weeks ago to look at yearlings and we saw her then. I’m not sure who will train her, but in the long term she’s a filly who will be a good addition to the stud. I had hoped to pay a little less, but when something comes in with a bit of pedigree you’ve got to put your head down.”

A LISTED WIN FOR TIME WARP
TIME WARP makes it four wins in a row after an impressive victory in the Listed Criterium de l’Ouest at Craon yesterday. TIME WARP is a Lanwades-bred two-year-old son of ARCHIPENKO and has progressed from race to race. He got off the mark in a median auction at Southwell before landing a nursery at Sandown, then a novice contest at Redcar and has now won his first Stakes race. He was consigned by Staffordstown when sold to Jeremy Brummitt at the Tattersalls Ireland September Yearling Sale. TIME WARP is the first foal out of the winning STORMY ATLANTIC mare HERE TO ETERNITY whose second, a full-brother to the winner is Lot 902 in the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale Book 2 selling next month. ARCHIPENKO‘s impressive statistics continue - he is a leading European sire of two-year-olds by percentage winners to runners.

20th August 2015
A LISTED WIN FOR ALGONQUIN
ARCHIPENKO’s son ALGONQUIN won his fourth consecutive race last night and gained his very first Black-type when taking the Listed Ruby Stakes at Killarney over a mile and half a furlong. ALONGQUIN’s jockey settled him on the rail in about fifth and he moved well throughout the race, coming to challenge around 2f out and he was always doing enough to win. ALGONQUIN has now won four out his five starts and really is a tough and progressive sort. ALGONQUIN was beaten on his debut, but put this quickly behind him to win his maiden at Dundalk last October and has won handicaps at The Curragh and Naas this year. Bred by Kirsten Rausing and owned in partnership with Mrs Jackie Bolger, ALGONQUIN is a half-brother to the Listed winner ALVARITA (dam of Gr.3 winner ALLA SPERANZA), the French Gr.2 placed multiple winner ALBION and the Listed-placed winner ALBARAKA out of World Champion and dual Gr.1 Champion Stakes winner ALBORADA. ALGONQUIN is trained by Jim Bolger and is the last foal of ALBORADA

A LOVELY MAIDEN WINNER FOR SIR PERCY
Lanwades-bred ALAMODE showed a great attitude to racing rallying back after being headed in the final furlong to win the Markel Insurance Maiden Fillies’ Stakes at Goodwood yesterday.  She is trained like her sire SIR PERCY by Marcus Tregoning and was also ridden like her sire by Martin Dwyer.  This was her second start after running a bit green on her deubt at Newbury although she was a staying on fourth on that occasion.  ALAMODE is the fourth foal and second winner of ALMAMIA, a daughter of dual Gr.1 Champion Stakes winner ALBORADA.

30th July 2015
IMPRESSIVE US DEBUT FOR DAUGHTER OF ARCHIPENKO
MARABEA made a most impressive US debut at Delawere yesterday in an allowance race to score quite cosily in the end by a very promising two lengths.  She was very much behind the pack and when asked for an effort she picked up only to come up against a wall of horses, but the daughter of ARCHIPENKO showed a sharp turn of foot to bravely fight through to win. MARABEA started her career in Italy, winning two races and finishing 2nd in the Gr.3 Premio Doremello in October last year as a two-year-old.  Bred by Charley Knoll Partnership she is now owned by Team Valor International and Lael Stables and is a very exciting prospect for the future.

ANOTHER DOUBLE FOR LANWADES SIRES
There was another double at the weekend when both Lanwades sires ARCHIPENKO and AUSSIE RULES had Derby winners – firstly ARCHIPENKO, the sire of VA BANK (IRE) who won the Polish Derby and remains unbeaten from six starts and AUSSIE RULES, the sire of QUELINDO (GER) winner of the Hungarian Derby to remain unbeaten from four starts. Both VA BANK (IRE) and QUELINDO (GER) are dual classic winners, taking both the 2,000 Guineas and Derby in their own countries making Lanwades sires ARCHIPENKO and AUSSIE RULES great value.

6th July 2015
A MEMORABLE GROUP DOUBLE FOR SIR PERCY
Lanwades sire SIR PERCY had a memorable two days when WAKE FOREST won a Group 3 on Friday and LADY TIANA won a Group 2 on Saturday.  WAKE FOREST ran out a very determined winner of the Gr.3 Hamburg Trophy run over a mile and a quarter at Hamburg in Germany.  This was a second Group 3 win for the progressive son of SIR PERCY who also finished third in the Gr.1 Premio Presidente della Repubblica at the Capannelle in May this year.  He has now won nearly £200,000 in prize money and is the winner of five races from nine starts

The second Group winner was LADY TIANA who was a cosy winner of the feature race at Haydock on Saturday, the very competitive Gr.2 Lancashire Oaks.  The now four-year-old daughter of SIR PERCY was held up in mid-division and although she did not have a clear run she stayed on really strongly to win by three quarters of a length. This was her first win at Group level, although she won the Listed Gillies Fillies’ Stakes last November.  Her trainer, Lucy Wadham, reports that she will probably have a little holiday now and will then be aimed at the Gr.1 Champion Fillies and Mares Stakes on Champions day at Ascot in October.  LADY TIANA is owned by a group which includes her breeders Anthony and Victoria Pakenham, in whose colours SIR PERCY won the 2006 Epsom Derby.

15th June 2015
AN EXCITING NEW 2YO STAKES WINNER FOR AUSSIE RULES
AUSSIE RULES looks to have a promising daughter in two-year-old LA VACANZA after she won the Listed Premio Vittorio Crespi yesterday at San Siro.  After having finished second in the Listed Premio Alessandro Perrone twelve days earlier she stayed on strongly inside the final furlong to score by two and three-quarter lengths to register her first win in great style.  AUSSIE RULES is now the sire of 95 individual two-year-old winners.  At the moment, he stands second only to DUBAWI in the table of leading British-based sires in 2015 by number of winners in Europe.

21st May 2015
CLASSIC WINNER FOR ARCHIPENKO
VA BANK, a three-year-old son of ARCHIPENKO, was a three length winner of the Polish 2,000 Guineas at the weekend.  VA BANK is from the second crop of ARCHIPENKO, was bred by Airlie Stud and sold as a yearling at Tattersalls Ireland September Sales.  He is now unbeaten in five starts and his winnings now tally over £26,000.  ARCHIPENKO is the sire of Gr.1 and Gr.3 winner MADAME CHIANG and 2015 Gr.2 and Gr.3 winner KINGSTON MINES.  He is, at present, the Leading European sire of two-year-olds from 2012 to 2015 with 52.3% winners to runners.

11th May 2015
AN EXCITING NEW STAKES WINNER FOR SIR PERCY
Three-year-old filly NEWSLETTER could be on course to run at Royal Ascot again this year after winning the Listed Kilvington Fillies’ Stakes at Nottingham run over 6f on Saturday.  The speedy daughter of SIR PERCY won a 5f maiden at The Curragh on her debut at two.  Trained in Ireland by Ken Condon, she came over to Royal Ascot and finished a very close third to ANTHEM ALEXANDER and TIGGY WIGGY in the Gr.2 Queen Mary and she could well be heading back there for the new Commonwealth Cup, she may well have a run in Ireland before then, possibly at Naas or in the Ballyogan Stakes at Leopardstown. Also running well at the weekend was another progeny of SIR PERCY, this time the now five-year-old WAKE FOREST who finished a very credible third in the Gr.1 Presidente Della Repubblica in Rome and was only beaten just over two lengths.

23rd April 2015

The LEROIDESANIMAUX filly is a daughter of the winning GALILEO mare CLAIOMH SOLAIS. Second and third in Curragh Group 3's and fourth at Group 1 level in both the Irish 1000 Guineas and the Pretty Polly Stakes, CLAIOMH SOLAIS is full-sister to CUIS GHAIRE (Group 3 Royal Ascot winner and runner-up in the Irish 1000 Guineas), SCINTILLULA (Group 3 winner and second in the Gr.1 Moyglare Stud Stakes) and GILE NA GREINE, who was placed in both the Irish 1000 Guineas and the Coronation Stakes.

Two Lanwades arrivals in Newmarket are a pair who each trace to NUREYEV's dam SPECIAL; a bay by BAHAMIAN BOUNTY and a chestnut by ARCHIPENKO.

SEA THE MOON CROWNED HORSE OF THE YEAR
Lanwades’ new sire in 2015 SEA THE MOON has been crowned German Horse of the Year for 2014.  Last year’s sensational German Derby winner was voted the winner with Melbourne Cup hero PROTECTIONIST in second and dual Group 1 winner IVANHOWE in third.  Bred and raced by Gestüt Görlsdorf  (Heike Bishcoff-Lafrentz and Niko Lafrentz), SEA THE MOON is from the first crop of 6-time Group 1 winner and current young sire sensation SEA THE STARS. He was trained by Markus Klug who sent him out to win a Cologne maiden by four lengths on his sole start at two and then as a three-year-old he went on to win the Gr.3 Fruhjahrs-Preis at Frankfurt by two lengths and then made all to win the Gr.2 Union-Rennen back at Cologne before his breathtaking performance in the German Derby.  Only a career finishing knee injury in the Gr.1 Grosser Preis Von Baden put an end to his unbeaten record. SEA THE MOON has received strong support in his first year at stud from Lanwades and Gestüt Görlsdorf as well as from outside breeders.  Among his first book of mares is NORTH EAST BAY, the dam of recent World Cup hero PRINCE BISHOP.

2nd April 2015
IMPRESSIVE SEASONAL DEBUT WIN FOR ALL AT SEA
Lanwades-bred four-year-old filly ALL AT SEA was a most impressive winner on her seasonal debut of the Listed Prix Zarkova (named after one of France’s best fillies) at Saint-Cloud yesterday.  ALL AT SEA made a winning debut last year as a three-year-old at Longchamp, she then finished fourth in a Listed race at Compiegne before going on to win the Listed Prix de Liancourt for three-year-old fillies.  She had another two runs in Group races and although unplaced she was never far behind the winner.  She has certainly started her four-year-old campaign in great style winning this Listed contest by six lengths.  ALL AT SEA is from the first crop of World Champion SEA THE STARS and is out of three-time Gr.1 winner Lanwades-bred ALBANOVA, a full sister to dual Gr.1 Champion Stakes winner ALBORADA.  ALBANOVA herself has already produced two other Stakes horses, the three-time Listed-placed winner ALBAMARA and three-time winner and Listed-placed ALWILDA.

30th March 2015
ANOTHER GROUP WIN FOR SON OF ARCHIPENKO
ARCHIPENKO’s son KINGSTON MINES followed up his impressive win in the Gr.2  J & B Urban Stayers at Kenilworth where he led from start to finish with an equally exciting win in the Gr.3 Caradoc Gold Cup, this time coming off the pace to win by one and a quarter lengths.  Bred by Miss K Rausing and Mrs S Rogers, KINGSTON MINES was purchased by the South African-based Form Bloodstock Agency as a yearling from Goffs Orby Yearling Sale when consigned by Staffordstown.  He is out of the very well related four-time winning NASHWAN mare ALEXANDRINE who is the dam of seven other winners including Listed-placed winners ALAMBIC and ALLANNAH ABU.  ARCHIPENKO had another Black-type result on the day when three-year-old colt MEDRANO (who was a winner and Listed-placed as a two-year-old) finished second in the Listed Prix Francois Mathet at Saint-Cloud. ARCHIPENKO has now sired a Gr.1 winner (MADAME CHIANG), KINGSTON MINES (winner of a Gr.2 and a Gr.3) as well as a Listed winner LADY PENKO (FR) from his first crop.

BOARDING ARRIVALS
Four boarding mares are amongst those to have foaled already at Lanwades. Two of them are the British Bloodstock Agency-owned young pair ARAQELLA and SWINGLAND.
