News for 2020 Lanwades successes

2nd April 2020 
A GALILEO half-brother to two Group 1 winners is amongst recent arrivals at Lanwades.

The bay, out of the winning STORMY ATLANTIC mare HERE TO ETERNITY, is better-than-half-brother to ARCHIPENKO full-brothers TIME WARP and GLORIOUS FOREVER, both Group 1 winners in Hong Kong (the former having added a third Group 1 success to his record with a win in the Hong Kong Gold Cup in February this year), all three being out of a mare tracing to SPECIAL in tail-female and by a sire who contains that highly influential taproot mare in his pedigree. HERE TO ETERNITY has the OASIS DREAM two-year-old filly HEAT AND DUST (with Sir Mark Prescott) to represent her on this side of the world this year.

Another high-profile newcomer is the second colt born at Lanwades by ill-fated Horse of the Year ROARING LION, this one out of four-time winning and Timeform 104-rated SEYCHELLOISE, a PIVOTAL daughter of Group 3 winner and Group 2 Queen Mary runner-up STARLIT SANDS. SEYCHELLOISE’s first foal is the SEA THE STARS two-year-old colt of 2020 SEA THE SHELLS, who is in training with Mark Johnston, and her second a now yearling filly by BOBBY’S KITTEN. She now visits Lanwades’ new horse STUDY OF MAN.

Mother and daughter MARIA DI SCOZIA and MARIEE have both foaled produce by SIR PERCY in 2020, the former with a chesnut colt, her daughter with a bay filly.  MARIEE, whose second foal this is following a SEA THE MOON colt last year, is by ARCHIPENKO and is one of three winners out of MARIA DI SCOZIA, who is herself a SELKIRK granddaughter (out of a HERNANDO mare) of Italian Horse of the Year MARIA WALESKA.  This is also the family of Lanwades-bred Gr.1 winner LADY JANE DIGBY.

Another ARCHIPENKO mare with a SIR PERCY filly (her second after last year’s filly first foal) is KANDAHARI, a dual winning half-sister to 2019 dual Group 3 winner ZAAKI, rated 120 by Timeform. Her filly foal is of course very closely related to Lanwades-bred 6-time winner and dual Stakes winner PERSONA GRATA, by SIR PERCY out of her 3rd dam, KALDOUNYA. She now visits SEA THE MOON, as do two other recent foalers – MS GILLARD, a winning AUSSIE RULES great-granddaughter of MRS MOSS who has a 2020 first foal daughter by BOBBY’S KITTEN; and NIMIETY, whose 2020 produce, her fourth foal, is a colt by successful young French horse ANODIN. NIMIETY has ARCHIPENKO daughters NETIQUETTE (three-year-old with Mark Johnston) and NEBULOSA (two-year-old with Andrew Balding) to run for her this year. 

Two fillies by BOBBY’S KITTEN are amongst the newcomers, one bay, one chesnut. The bay is out of CATADUPA, a SELKIRK full-sister to German Champion older mare and dual UK Group 3 winner CUBANITA who has a SEA THE MOON three-year-old son SEL SEA to run for her this year and also has on the ground a HIGHLAND REEL yearling filly; the chesnut is the second foal (after last year’s AUSTRALIA colt) of LA VIE EN ROSE, a winning daughter of Group 1 winner LADY JANE DIGBY, who like MARIA DI SCOZIA is a Lanwades-bred granddaughter of MARIA WALESKA.

Finally, boarder SHE’S GORGEOUS has a bay colt by SEA THE MOON. A dual winner by ACCLAMATION out of a half-sister to Dubai World Cup winner PRINCE BISHOP, SHE’S GORGEOUS has MUKHADRAM two-year-old filly, REINE DU BAL (with Jane Chapple-Hyam) to run for her this year and a yearling colt by SIR PERCY

27th March 2020
Cases of suspected coronavirus have occurred amongst the Lanwades covering barn staff . In view of this, we are suspending covering walking-in mares for one week from Saturday 28th March.

The situation will be continually reviewed and we hope to have better news soon. We ask mare owners/boarding studs with mares booked to our stallions to keep in contact with our office.

Thank you for your understanding and co-operation... 

24th March 2020
Three Stakes-performing daughters of - and a Stakes-winning half-sister to - German Horse of the Year ALBANOVA are amongst mares to have foaled at Lanwades recently. 

ALMA MATER, the SADLER’S WELLS half-sister to ALBANOVA and a Listed winner in France, has produced a grey KENDARGENT half-brother to five winners, her first five foals; her sixth named foal, ALAGAPPA, a two-year-old filly by ARCHIPENKO, is in training with Sir Mark Prescott.

 Also, with a grey colt is ALBANOVA’s three-time Parisian Listed winning daughter ALL AT SEA, by SEA THE STARS, whose fourth-foal son is from the sole crop by ill-fated Champion ROARING LION. ALL AT SEA’s first foal is the once-raced Sir Michael Stoute trained three-year-old INVINCIBLE SPIRIT filly A LA VOILE, while she too has an ARCHIPENKO two-year-old daughter (A LEGACY, in training with Ralph Beckett) and she also boasts a yearling colt son by DUBAWI. 

ALBANOVA’s German Listed-winning HERNANDO daughter ALWILDA has an OASIS DREAM colt third foal. Her first, the FRANKEL filly ALPINISTA, was a winner and 4th in the Group 3 Prix d’Aumale in three juvenile starts last year, and she has a yearling filly by KENDARGENT.

ALBAMARA, the third of the siblings to foal, who did not register a black-type win, but did post a Listed second and two Listed thirds, has a grey filly by MASTERCRAFTSMAN. 

All four - ALMA MATER, ALWILDA, ALBAMARA and ALL AT SEA - will now join the initial book for Lanwades new son of DEEP IMPACT, STUDY OF MAN who already has his first mares covered safely in foal.

9th March 2020
First season sire and French Derby winner STUDY OF MAN, the only son of Japanese super-sire DEEP IMPACT at stud in England, has had seven of his first eight mares covered scanned in foal.

Amongst the mares in foal to the grandson of the legendary 10-time Group One winner MIESQUE are Lanwades’ own mares, Gr.1 winner LADY JANE DIGBY (Oasis Dream – Scandalette/Niniski), already dam of 5 winners with her first 5 foals, and ALMIRANTA (Galileo – Alvarita/Selkirk), dam of two Group winners, ALEA IACTA and ALYSSA, as well as the undefeated Listed winner ALOE VERA, with her first three produce.

STUDY OF MAN is proving adept at his new career and is being supported by many of Europe’s leading breeders, not least his own breeders, the Niarchos Family.

Lanwades also stands unbeaten Champion Two-Year-Old and Derby winner SIR PERCY (sire of 80 individual two-year-old winners to date), Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint winner BOBBY’S KITTEN (whose first crop are two-year-olds of 2020) and German Derby winner and Horse-of-the-Year SEA THE MOON, a leading young European sire.

26th February 2020
Three fillies by Lanwades’ exciting young horse SEA THE MOON are among the first batch of 2020 foal arrivals. First of the trio born was also the first foal for her dam ALBIZZIA, a winning ARCHIPENKO half-sister to SIR PERCY’s six-time winning daughter HOPE IS HIGH and a granddaughter of TBA Broodmare of the Year ALOUETTE, herself a daughter of ALRUCCABA.

CHINOISERIES, a winning ARCHIPENKO full-sister to Group 1 winner MADAME CHIANG has a second foal bay daughter to follow last year’s filly by MASTERCRAFTSMAN, while the third of the SEA THE MOON newcomers is a third foal, and first filly, out of John Pearce Racing Ltd-owned BEST FRIEND, an unraced full-sister to Gr.1 Coronation Stakes winner and Champion Irish three-year-old filly LUSH LASHES.

The first foal born at Lanwades in 2020 is also out of an unraced full-sister to a Champion, in this case a NEW APPROACH fourth foal colt for LUISA CALDERON, who is a NAYEF sister to Gr.1 Prix de l’Opera winner and German Champion three-year-old LADY MARIAN. LUISA CALDERON is yet to have a runner, but her sister has already produced a good horse in the form of Gr.2 Grand Prix de Deauville winner LOXLEY, to whom, since LOXLEY is also by NEW APPROACH, this new arrival is a full-brother in blood. The mares’ half-sister LEADERENE (by Selkirk) produced last year’s useful three-year-old winner LE DON DE VIE (by LEROIDESANIMAUX), who remains in training this year.

Two other colt arrivals are by a pair of stallions whose progeny have yet to hit the track in HIGHLAND REEL and SAXON WARRIOR out of young mares neither of whom has yet had a runner either. The HIGHLAND REEL is the third foal and first colt out of the winning ARCHIPENKO mare ANARCHISTE, a great-granddaughter of 1975 Irish Champion two-year-old WELSH GARDEN, ancestress of high-class winners as diverse as Haydock Sprint Cup winner CHEROKEE ROSE and St Leger winner MASTERY. The colt from the first crop of SAXON WARRIOR is also a first foal for KINAESTHESIA, a winning SEA THE STARS daughter of Stakes winner KINETICA from the same family, tracing through Oaks Trial winner KILINISKI to SPECIAL, as MADAME CHIANG and CHINOISERIES.

Two of the remaining three foal arrivals are fillies by Lanwades horses SIR PERCY and BOBBY’S KITTEN. The bay filly by the latter is half-sister, out of the LEAR FAN mare HEAT OF THE NIGHT, to five winners including HERE TO ETERNITY, dam of ARCHIPENKO’s Hong Kong Group 1 winning full-brothers TIME WARP (now a winner of 12 races, including 3 Group 1’s, for winnings of £3,798,271) and GLORIOUS FOREVER. The SIR PERCY filly is the fourth foal of her dam ARCHDUCHESS, a winning ARCHIPENKO granddaughter of Gr.1 Yorkshire Oaks and Gr.1 Prix Vermeille winner MY EMMA, and a full-sister to 2020 two-year-old filly PERIPETEIA.

Finally, GRAIN ONLY, already dam of five winners of which two are the HERNANDO full-brothers CARAVAN ROLLS ON (a Group winner in Australia) and Listed-placed nine-time winner GABRIAL’S STAR, and the other three are by Lanwades stallions WITH APPROVAL, SIR PERCY and AUSSIE RULES, has a bay filly by GOLDIKOVA’s French-based full-brother ANODIN. GRAIN ONLY has a two-year-old by BOBBY’S KITTEN to run for her this year, so SEA THE MOON, her mate for 2020, will be the sixth individual Lanwades stallion she has visited.

17th February 2020
Lanwades-bred now seven-year-old TIME WARP bounced back to his best to win the valuable Gr.1 Hong Kong Gold Cup at Sha Tin yesterday. A race he had previously won two years ago when he made history setting a new record by breaking the 2 minute mark for the Sha Tin 2000 metres. TIME WARP dictated a strong pace from the start and never looked liked being passed and won by three quarters of a length from his stablemate EXULTANT who had gone off favourite having won this race the year before. TIME WARP was sold as a yearling when consigned by Staffordstown Stud to Jeremy Brummitt at the Tattersalls Ireland September Yearling Sale. He went on to win four races as a two-year-old which culminated in him winning the Listed Criterium de l’Quest at Craon in France. He then won the Listed Prix de Pontarme at Saint-Cloud over a mile on his debut at three for his then trainer Sir Mark Prescott. Since arriving in Hong Kong he has now won three Group 1’s and a Group 3 and prize money won is now over £3.7 million. He is a most talented son of ARCHIPENKO and is full brother to fellow Hong Kong Group 1 winner GLORIOUS FOREVER, out of the winning STORMY ATLANTIC mare HERE TO ETERNITY who has two-year-old filly HEAT AND DUST in training with Sir Mark Prescott to run for her this year.

ARCHIPENKO had another Group winner at the weekend - this time in Argentina when his three-year-colt AJOOL won the Gr.2 Premio Horacio Bustillo over a mile at San Isidro by a length.  This was a fifth consecutive victory and the colt's second Group win.
