You will not find many thoroughbreds in the world who would have so much in common with the famous person they are named after. The brilliant sprinter Mozart was, same as the famous composer, endowed with exceptional talent.

Keisei Hai (Gr.3) at Nakayama over 2,000 metres on Sunday was taken by Beruf, a nose in front of Black Bago. Beruf, bred at Shadai Farm, won the first black-type victory for his sire Harbinger. He triumphed only a week after another Harbinger’s son, Lord Felice, finished second in the Sho Shinzan Kinen (Gr.3), becoming the very first Harbinger’s product successful in a black-type race. Both are out of dams by Sunday Silence. Full article

Jape, 26, died last week at the Polish stud Iwno. Although only a few breeders outside the Central Europe know his name, he has become a legend in the region. It was partly because he was able to produce an English Gd1 winner at stud in Poland and English owners bought his progeny for sums amounting to 200,000 pounds. Full article

The first Gr.1 race this year was run on the New Year at Ellerslie, New Zealand. The race was taken by the six-year-old In Style, sired by Fast ’N’ Famous, who won by a short head. In Style is the fourteenth Gr.1 winner sired by a Redoute’s Choice’s son and can serve as another proof of the strengthening influence of this successful Danehill’s son. Full article

Let us, now, look at the data showing stallions with first crops of yearlings at sales. Full article

The Sunday Mile Championship at Kyoto was an excellent duel of two Deep Impact’s sons, Danon Shark and Fiero. It was eventually Danon Shark who was happier in the finish, thus becoming already the sixteenth Gr.1 winner by the Japanese champion sire and another of his offspring out of an imported broodmare. Such horses seem to dominate among best Deep Impact’s offspring. Full article

The performances of Munnings’s first crop were the highlight of the weekend on U.S. racecourses. First two-year-old filly Lake Sebago won the Smart Halo Stakes (L) at Laurel Park, becoming Munnings’s first black-type winner, then, just a few hours later, Munnings’s sons No Problem and Alright Alright took the first two places in the Gr.3 Bob Hope Stakes.

The meeting at Moonee Valley offered, as usually, a number of interesting races of which two of them, in my opinion, belong among the best what we may have seen on the world racecourses not only just this year. The first was the fantastic finish of Manikato Stakes, where six horses in line fought for triumph, the second was the Cox Plate and the excellent performance of the three-year-old Adelaide, the very first European winner of this race.

The easiest win at the Saturday’s British Champions Day was achieved by the three-year-old Madame Chiang in the British Champions Fillies’ and Mares’ Stakes, beating Silk Sari by 2 lengths with Chicquita third back another 3/4 length while the favourite Seal of Approval was fifth, another length behind. For Madame Chiang the victory was the peak of her career so far, as it was for her sire Archipenko, stallion at Lanwades Stud, who had his first Gr.1 winner. Full article

The Epsom Derby winner Australia was to race at the British Champions Day. However, an injury in training meant his early retirement, so instead of bracing for his first Gr.1 victory over a mile, Australia is leaving for stud. He will be based at Coolmore, Ireland, which will have five Epsom Derby winners among its stallions. Do we need a better proof that the Derby is significant for breeders again? Full article

Thoroughbred breeding has come through turbulent development recently, at least as far as the numbers of broodmares are concerned. These were impacted mainly by the economic crisis following the fall of Lehman Brothers. But only that. It is mainly the countries where racing has tradition that face difficulties with raising money for racing which is necessarily reflected in breeding. The data published recently, however, are much more optimistic that those of preceding years. Full article

In just few days the most important European yearling sale, Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, will kick in.

This article is going to present one such perspective. Full article

The first offspring of the sons of the excellent Oasis Dream appeared on the racecourse last year but even now we can find among them five sires who were able to produce a black-type horse, i.e. a horse who won or placed in a black-type race. The biggest success so far was achieved at Newbury on Saturday where the two-year-old gelding Toocoolforschool won the Gr.2 Mill Reef Stakes. Full article

It does not happen too often that a sire having the first crop of three-year-olds on the racecourse celebrate two Gr. 1 victories on a single day. This is what happened to the grey Mastercraftsman on Saturday when first Kingston Hill, second in the Epsom Derby, won easily the Saint Leger and, later, The Grey Gatsby, a classic winner from June, beat the hot favourite Australia in Irish Champion Stakes. The reasons of Mastercraftsman exceptionally successful start at stud can be looked for anywhere but definitely the influence of his damsire Black Tie Affair and mainly Black Tie Affair’s sire Miswaki should not be neglected.

The Saturday victory of the five-year-old Angelic Light in the Gr. 2 McEwen Stakes in Moonee Valley was the jubilee fiftieth triumph of a horse by the Coolmore sire Holy Roman Emperor in a group race. True, the list includes a number of victories in group races in India, which are otherwise labelled as listed but nevertheless it is worthwhile to pay attention to this stallion who is only 10 years old and has achieved so much.
