Despite achievements of stallions such as Stay Gold, Fuji Kiseki, Neo Universe, Heart’s Cry, Gold Allure, Special Week, Daiwa Major or Agnes Tachyon is without any doubt that the most successful sire of Sunday Silence at stud is the champion of Japanese stallions Deep Impact. Although only fifteen, he is just two winners from the milestone of a 100 black-type winners, an excellent result for a stallion with just eight crops on the racecourse. Full article

The last weekend was dominated by the Irish Champion Weekend, a meeting full of great races and exceptional horses. As usually, the results of major races brought some inspiration for breeders, on the other hand the five Gr.1 races confirmed some current trends in breeding. Full article

When the six-year-old Australian superstar Winx dominated the Chelmsford Stakes on Saturday, it was her nineteenth triumph in a row. The same number of consecutive victories was achieved by another excellent mare – the U.S. bred Zenyatta. What the two mares have in common is not just the long line of victories but also their sire – both are daughters of the former Jonabell Farm stallion Street Cry. Full article

The three-year-old chestnut Sea of Grace won the listed Dick Hern Fillies Stakes at Haydock on Sunday, her second black-type win after the last year’s triumph in the Flame of Tara Stakes. The runner up in the Poule d’ Essai des Pouliches (Gr.1) is so far the most successful progeny of Galileo’s half-brother Born To Sea but looking at her pedigree we should not miss the dam side, including her damsire, Machiavellian’s son Vettori.

This column has focused on black-type winners, stallions whose progeny win black-type races or families and their achievements – again mainly on the black-type scene. Black-type races are the very top that racing has to offer and they are naturally related to the focus of our online service, whose database includes as many as 72,000 black-type horses. Today we’ll make an exception though – we’ll look on a pedigree of a filly who has won a classic race and was second in a local Derby… but in a country whose top races lack the black-type status – in Hungary.

The racing weekend saw its peak in the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot, in which the three-year-old daughter of Nathaniel, Enable, taught a lesson to older colts and achieved another Gr.1 victory after Epsom Oaks and Irish Oaks. Her pedigree, or rather the quite close inbreeding to Sadler’s Wells, has already been covered by this column, so let’s pay attention to others. Full article

Sons of successful sires, even when they achieved a lot on the racecourse, face much tougher conditions at stud than their predecessors. While at the time when the best stallions covered about forty mares a year, their sons had a rather wide field to excel in, today, when the most demanded stallions at stud cover about 100 to 200 mares a year, the field for their sons, successful at the racecourse, yet not tried at stud, is getting narrower.

The Saturday meeting at Haydock had its peak in the Lancashire Oaks, a Gr.2 race for three-year-old plus fillies & mares. The race was won by the four-year-old bay filly The Black Princess, bred by Petra Bloodstock Agency, by 1/2 length. After her April triumph in the Gr.3 Allez France The John Gosden-trained filly took another group victory, this time with the Gr.2 status. The victory is not only her biggest achievement so far, but also the biggest achievement of a horse inbred to Ahonoora’s daughter Park Appeal. Full article

It was no easy thing to follow English racing from behind the Iron Curtain. News arrived with terrible delays and the opportunity to watch English or other races live was something that one did not even dream about. But still you could pick your favourites who you followed, albeit from distance and with delay. Full article

Last week was characterised by another edition of Royal Ascot, which – as usual – brought much excellent racing experience. For me personally, one of the strongest moments was the performance of Highland Reel in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes and his fight for sixth Gr.1 triumph. Three days later, in the Hardwicke Stakes, his full brother Idaho took the victory and their dam Hveger was the first mare in this century to have two black-type winners in a single royal meeting.

A rather unexpected winner of the dramatic Prix de Diane, the French Oaks, was the filly Senga, trained by Pascal Bary and bred by Flaxman Holdings of the Niarchos family. The first Gr. 1 successful progeny of the single horse that beat the excellent Zenyatta, Blade, was foaled in the United States but he has more in common with U.S. breeding than just the place where he was foaled.

The final instalment of the U. S. Triple Crown, the Belmont Stakes, run on Saturday, was won by the second favourite and sixth in the Kentucky Derby Tapwrit. The colt is the third son of Tapit, the most expensive U.S. stallion today, to have won the Belmotnt in the last four years and there is much class on the maternal side of the pedigree, too, as his dam Appealing Zophie won the Gr.1 Spinaway Stakes. A great stallion prospect, one might say. However, a look on the stud career of the Belmont Stakes winners in this century shows that the triumph in the longest American classic race is no guarantee of a prominent position at stud. Rather the contrary, it is often an air ticket to countries with less developed racing industry than in America. Full article
