Waikato Guineas, a Gr.2 race and the peak of the Saturday meeting at Te Rapa, New Zealand, was won by the three-year-old Wyndspelle, who took the race by a half a length from Shocking Luck, a horse bred by G. L. Currie a T. W. Archer Trust, who was successful in a black-type race for the very first time. Sired by Shocking, he has a rather interesting pedigree whose key aspect deserves attention.

Desert Sun’s daughter Helsinge went down into the history of thoroughbred breeding by producing the excellent Black Caviar, a sprinter unbeaten in twenty-five races, winner of fourteen Gr.1 races. Besides her, she gave birth to the colt All Too Hard, winner of the Caulfield Guineas and more three Gr.1 races. All Too Hard made his debut at stud in 2013 at Vinery Stud and in his first year covered 176 mares. In his first crop he has 145 horses and this Saturday the first of them, the filly Mystic Empire, managed to place in a black-type race. Full article

Kahyasi’s daughter Hasili, the jewel among broodmares at Juddmonte Farm, belongs among the most successful broodmares in history. She produced a total of ten horses, of whom half won a Gr. 1 and more two won another group race. Of remaining three two fillies did not race and the only single runner was without a stakes victory. It is he, however, thanks to whom we will remember Hasili today. Full article

The winner of the 1984 Prix du Jockey Club, beating Sadler’s Wells and Rainbow Quest, Shirley Heights’s son Darshaan, was a very successful stallion and, similarly to majority of stallions of the Mill Reef Line, an excellent damsire. Among his sons, Dalakhani, last year pensioned successor of his sire at Aga Khan’s studs, was the most successful of them at stud, having produced so far 49 black-type products, 8 Gr.1 winners, including the winner of the Prix du Jockey Club Reliable Man or two-time Breeders’ Cup Turf winner Conduit. Among damsires, however, some other horse is the most successful – Mark of Esteem. Full article

You will not find in history many cases when a sire has an impact on breeding in a racing-developed country as it happened with Sunday Silence and Japan. The thirteen-time champion sire in Japan, together with his sons, has dominated, with the exception of two-year-reign of King Kamehameha, the local championship for twenty-one years and just last year, the top ten sires included eight of his sons. This weekend, the Sho-Shinzan Kinen (Gr.3) winner Kyohei became the third group winner inbred to Sunday Silence. Full article

The economic crisis, caused by the collapse of Lehman Brothers, had a profound impact on thoroughbreds. Due to the crisis, the numbers of broodmares decreased almost all over the world and, as we said three years ago quoting the IFHA data, the decrease amounted to about 30 per cent. What are the numbers like now? Full article

San Isidro racecourse saw the highlight of the season in Argentina on Saturday, the Gran Premio Internacional Carlos Pellegrini. The race over a mile and a half with the purse of ARS 5.1 million was won by the three-year-old Sixties Song, the son of the St Leger winner Sixties Icon and the winner of two races in the United States, Blissful Song. Sixties Icon thus achieved the first Gr.1 victory as a sire and became the tenth son of Galileo to produce a Gr.1 winner. Full article

The highlight of the last weekend were the four international races in Hong Kong, the virtual end of the 2016 season. The most breathtaking experience, at least for me, was the excellent performance by the Japanese Maurice who took the main race, the Hong Kong Cup, in an excellent fashion. And he inspired this weekly column. Full article

In February, it will have been four years since Royal Academy died at twenty-five. An exceptionally successful stallion of an international repute was Nijinsky’s most successful son at stud and his blood is successful all over the globe. On Sunday, we had a chance to remember him again, this time in a role in which he was successful for the first time. Full article

An excellent run was performed by the four-year-old Kitasan Black in the richest race of the Japanese calendar, the Japan Cup, in Tokyo on Sunday. The last-year’s Saint Leger winner took the biggest achievement of his career by running front to finish and beating a number of Japanese stars. The Sunday victory was not the peak of his career for him but also for his sire Black Tide, until now recognised just as “the brother of Deep Impact”. Full article

A few weeks ago we focused on the data from this year’s stud season in North American. Now we will have a look on the stud season in England and Ireland – again mainly from the perspective of most demanded sires and activity of individual paternity lines. A comparison with the previous season may be interesting, as it will reveal the major trends in England and Ireland. Full article

Its uncertainty — this is one of the magnets that attracts us all to the world of racing. It applies both in racing and in breeding. Even the best blood does not have to be a guarantee of success on the racecourse and even two siblings with successful racing careers can have quite different performance at stud. I was reminded about this during the weekend when I watched black-type races. And this time not just races on the flat. Full article

This year’s Breeders’ Cup Distaff was a great climax of an excellent career for Beholder. After a breathtaking fight with unbeaten Songbird she won by a nose and thus defended her victory she achieved as a three-year-old. With her record of eighteen wins from twenty-six starts, three Eclipse Awards and a purse of over six million dollars she leaves for stud to Spendthrift Farm. Her first partner will be Uncle Mo and this combination of a stallion with one of the most successful starts of stud career with an exceptional champion mare commands attraction already. Full article

The former German champion sire and once the most expensive stallion in Europe outside Ireland, the deceased Monsun, came into the centre of attention thanks to Almandin’s triumph in this year’s Melbourne Cup. The sire of three of four last winners of the Melbourne Cup scored over the weekend in a rather unusual role for him – as a damsire of two-year old horses. Full article

Every stud season bears information on the latest trends at stud, what sires and what lines are most demanded by breeders and, perhaps, also some hints on what the racing season and classic races will be like in four years time. The stud season in North America could tell us something about trends in North American breeding and perhaps about the 2020 Kentucky Derby. It will not tell us the results, but it will hint what horses could compete about classic laurels at the beginning of the third decade of the new century. Full article

Although three black-type winners during a single day are not a common phenomenon among Machiavellian’s daughters, the Sunday results of his daughters well demonstrate not just exceptional talent, showed by his daughters at stud, but also its scope which is not limited by continents, distance nor sires of their progeny.

It is twenty-one years since she entered the starting stalls for the last time and five years since she was inducted into the U. S. Hall of Fame. Blushing Groom’s daughter Sky Beauty, the star of mid 1990s, is slowly falling into oblivion as her results at stud lagged behind those on the racecourse. Her blood, however, is still alive and achieved a major success over the weekend. Full article

If it had been not for the 1993 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, this year’s edition of the most important race for 3yo plus over a mile and a half would have looked quite differently. When twenty-three years ago Miswaki’s daughter Urban Sea ran through the finish first, beating White Muzzle and Opera House, only few could have imagined that the glory won by this triumph will be only a fraction of her glory at stud.

He was the first stakes winner from the connection between Galileo and a Danehill’s daughter and his achievements significantly contributed to win for this nick the position of the currently most successful nick of European breeding. The unbeaten champion two-year-old who had to end his racing career prematurely and never raced after his triumph in the Dewhurst Stakes, however he remains more than the pioneer of an excellent nick. He is a successful sire. Full article

Danehill’s son Dansili is the only one of the great Hasili’s first six progeny who has never won a Gr.1 race. At stud, however, he has produced nineteen Gr.1 winners so far and as the member of the elite “Hundred Club” – sires with 100 + black-type winners – he enjoys respect and demand of broodmare owners but also sire owners, as two of his sons have already managed to produce a Gr.1 winner and the number of his sons – producers of black-type winners – has risen to nine after this weekend.
