Horses in Training - 2 Year Olds

 Empress Makeda

 b f Sea The Stars – Sheba Five (Five Star Day) 

 (Anthony & Sonia Rogers)

A super looking filly, typical of her sire who is one of the best racehorses ever, a 6-time Group 1 winner at 3, including the  Guineas, Derby and Arc, now a leading sire of Group 1 horses.  Her dam has produced four winners from five runners, two with big black type.  What’s not to like about that!  Many thanks to Airlie Stud for sending her our way.

Jewel In My Crown

g f Mukhadram – Rosa Grace (Lomitas) 

(Mr Eammon Duggan)

Another filly out of our former stable star Rosa Grace (on the Wall of Fame as the winner of the Listed Ballymacoll Stakes), a half sister to the as yet unraced Rosa Gold.  She is by Group 1 winning Shamardal horse Mukhadram, winner of the Coral Eclipse Stakes in 2014 so should be a staying type.

Cape Columbus

b g Acclamation – Cape Factor (Oratorio) 

(Mr Derek Willis)

The first by his celebrated dam Listed winner Cape Factor to come into training here, this is a really bonny happy looking colt by a top stallion from the family of former stable star dual Group 1 winning Serious Attitude.  We are delighted to have him for owner/breeder Derek Willis.


g f Hellvelyn – Madame Lafite (Dutch Art) 

(Lady Cecil & Family and Rae Guest)

The first foal of her dam, this is an attractive filly by Hellvelyn, who was a precocious & high-class 5-6f 2yo, including the Coventry Stakes with a speedy pedigree and is a proven source of speed (the Dick Poole winner La Rioja and Cornwallis winner Mrs Danvers from scant opportunities).

Rita The Cheetah

b f Prince of Lir – Munaawashat (Marju)

(Lady Cecil & Family and Rae Guest)

This racy compact filly is out of a five time winning mare by first season sire Prince of Lir, a precocious and good looking horse by Kodiac, he was the winner of the Norfolk Stakes and retired to stud at two.  She is not an early foal but looks fairly set and like she should be a two year old.

Bahia Star

b f Twilight Son – Bahia Breeze (Mister Baileys)

(BB Bloodstock)

This bonny filly is from the first crop of Haydock Sprint Cup winner Twilight Son out of massive yard favourite Bahia Breeze, a real rags-to-riches story who is proving a successful broodmare having already produced Listed placed Brioniya and Group 2 winner Beshaayir.  Delighted to have her in training here.


b f  Helmet  - Alsaaden (Acclamation)

(BB Thoroughbreds)

A rangy first foal out of a winning mare whose dam was yard favourite Bahia Breeze, this filly was bought in utero by BB Bloodstock and brought up at Pantile Stud next to her grand-dam and cousins (one of whom is in the box opposite!), she is by high-class Australian sire Helmet, the sire of Thunder Snow.  Thank you to owner Steve Russell for sending her to Chestnut Tree Stables.


b f Sea the Moon – Stellaire (Archipenko)

(Kirsten Rausing)

A lovely filly who is a beautifully bred product of Lanwades Stud, being by German Derby winner Sea the Moon who has made an excellent start with his two year olds in 2019 out of winning Archipenko mare Stellaire from one of Kirsten Rausing’s best families - recently big black type winners Songerie, Souvenance, Soft Morning and Sourire and less recently our own Listed winner Marakabei.


b f Kitten’s Joy – Time Being (Zamindar)

(Reiko & Michael Baum)

A rangy filly who is out of a full sister to Group 1 winner Timepiece from the Juddmonte family of Passage of Time, Time Test, Twice Over etc, she is by champion sire Kitten’s Joy, the sire of Roaring Lion, Hawkbill and many top performers in Europe.  A blue blood indeed, we are thrilled to have for new US based owners Reiko and Michael Baum.


b f Exceed and Excel - Minalisa

(Mr Chris Mills)

This attractive filly is very like her Listed winning dam Minalisa and we hope she can prove as good a racehorse.  Rae has trained three generations of this Chris Mills family to racecourse success and Chris does a great job breeding brilliantly fast horses.  By Exceed and Excel, this one looks sure to be another.
