Bay filly 22 March Tasleet - Alwafaa (Invincible Spirit)

(Lady Cecil, Family & Friends)

Rae has been keen to get hold of a Tasleet as he has done so well with his first crop including Coventry winner Bradsell, and also because Rae trained both his dam and granddam (!). Anyway this one looks precocious and fast, she is from the Shadwell family of Sarayir and Ghanaati. She won her first race in a five furlong nursery at Chelmsford.

Noble Miss

Lia Rose

 Grey filly 3 March Ulysses - Rosa Grace (Lomitas)

(Mr Eamonn Duggan)

A very strikingly marked filly who is the most recent offspring of Eamonn Duggan's great mare Rosa Grace and therefore a half sister to our own Jewel In My Crown and Rosa Gold, both of whom are prolific winners of the yard, we are delighted to have her. She has had three quiet educational runs this year and has now been turned away for a break to strengthen and mature.

Un-named bay filly 23 February Camelot - Trail of Tears (Exceed and Excel)

(Rachel Flynn)

A substantial filly with an intriguing mix of speed and stamina in her pedigree, she's by a Derby winner from a fast family, her second dam being none other than the Group 1 Haydock Sprint Cup winner Cherokee Rose from a strong black type family. 

Family Matters

Bay filly 9 March Postponed - Indicia (Bated Breath)

She recently had her first run in a Fillies' Novice Stakes at Southwell.

 Hits The Front

Bay gelding 6 April Tasleet - Mawqed (Invincible Spirit)

(Storm Again Syndicate)

Rae has been keen to get hold of a Tasleet as he has done so well with his first crop and also because Rae trained both his dam and granddam (!). This compact gelding is out of an Invincible Spirit ex Shadwell mare from the family of Group 2 winner Maraahel and Lockinge winner Mustashry. He has just had two quiet runs so far.


Chesnut filly 29 April Bobby's Kitten - Memory Lane (With Approval)

(Miss Kirsten Rausing)

A full sister to our own dual winner Melodramatica from a family owned and bred by her owner Kirsten Rausing, the owner breeder of Arc heroine Alpinista. She is from the only family that Kirsten brought over from her native Sweden. Rae rode and Uncle Nelson trained her fourth dam, Highlight, to be champion two year old filly in Sweden in 1973. 


Bay filly 10 March Expert Eye - Minalisa (Oasis Dream)

(Mr C J Mills)

A compact, attractive bay filly by Expert Eye, a high class two year old and Breeders Cup winner at three, she is from one of Chris and Lesley Mills' best families being out of Minalisa, a Listed winner for the yard, now the dam of Listed placed winner Mohi. She has just had one run so far.


Volto di Medusa

Bay gelding 17 May Ten Sovereigns - Simply Fate  (Pivotal)

(The Twilight Zone Syndicate)

A handsome gelding from Kirsten Rausing's Alborada/Alpinista family, purchased from Joseph O'Brien at the horses in training sales to give our new syndicate something to run while waiting for their two yearling fillies to get going. He has run three times, being placed third in his last run at Thurles on 5th October and has an IHRB rating of 75. He has been recommended as a straightforward horse who should be able to run regularly on turf and the all weather and give the syndicate a bit of fun.


Chesnut filly 25 February Showcasing - Biri's Angel (Sir Prancealot)

(Rachel Flynn)

A racy looking ex-Shadwell filly who was a 200,000 guinea yearling a year ago and has since run twice for Charlie Hills, showing some promise on the second occasion. She is by top stallion Showcasing and also from the well-known sprinting family of Superstar Leo, Enticing and One Master. We are taking a chance that she will belie her modest price tag this time around. She has already shown some early promise and ran well in her first run for us in a Lingfield maiden.
