Manton Thoroughbreds V Launched
We are pleased to announce our new 6 colt partnership for the 2020 season. They are currently at Manton with Brian Meehan. The partnership is made up of 6 colts by the following stallions: Holy Roman Emperor, Camacho, Kodiac, No Nay Never. Dragon Pulse and Zoffany. Holy Roman Emperor x Champagne Mistress (Kyllachy) Bought from GoffsUK this colt looks sharp, he is the 3rd foal who’s brother has won two races since we bought this colt now rated 94. Holy Roman Emperor has been a great stallion for us, he is a reliable proven source of winners. This is also a close cross to Group 1 winner Glorious Empire. Camacho x Kayak (Singspiel) This colt was bought from Goffs Orby sale from a fantastic breeder in Ballylinch Stud, a once vendor to Brian of the dual Group 1 winner Red Rocks. He was a stand out athlete at the sale and would hails from a very strong page, his sister Lady Kaya was 2nd in the 1000 Guineas 2019 and would have carried on to be a Group 1 winner herself if it was not for an unfortunate accident on the gallops after the race. He is physically strong and well balanced. The stallion is going from strength to strength and I think this colt could be very exciting. Kodiac x Shared Experience (Ravens Pass) The stallion needs no introduction a leading source of two year olds and stakes winners year in year out. This colt has the stamp of his father, he has a great mind and physically has done nothing but thrive since going into training. Ravens Pass being the dam sire will add plenty of scope into him also and he would likely take a little more time. No Nay Never x Echo Charlie (Tertullian) Another colt by a proven stallion who stands at €150,000 this year, only 3 crops to have race he has produced a number of top class performers. This is another bought from the GoffsUK sale, he looks sharp we won’t be waiting too long to find out just how good he is. He has a fantastic pedigree, two champions in Echelon and Entrepreneur as well as a number of Group 1 winners, this will be the first foal to race out of the mare. Dragon Pulse x Back In The Frame (Dutch Art) This colt was bought from Tattersalls Book 2, although the stallion may not be as sexy as the others in the syndicate he proves himself with the number of winners he produces. Last year he was running on a 57% strike rate winners/runners better than most in the catalogue. To match these stats he was a colt that really caught the eye, he walked very well and looks like a very nice individual. Zoffany x Gale Song (Invincible Spirit) He is a cracking colt by a stallion that had a great season highlighted by two year old Prix Marcel Boussac winner Albigna. We have had a lot of success with this stallion with horses such as Dominus and Petrus this year winning 5 races between them. Invincible Spirit being the broodmare sire will out speed and quality into him. He is the first foal out of the mare who clearly throws a very good foal as this colt seems to have a lot of quality.
