Haras de Beaumont's European champion three-year-old and Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe winner Ace Impact (Ire) (Cracksman {GB}) has had his first three mares scanned in foal. 

These include the 2023 G3 Prix Imprudence winner Showay (Fr) (Galiway {GB}) and the Listed winner and Group-placed Mixed Intention (Ire) (Elusive City), who has already produced the G1 Prix du Jockey-Club third Millebosc (Fr) (Le Havre {Ire})

“Ace Impact is proving very popular with French and international breeders, and we are very grateful for the support. His first book is very exciting,” said Haras de Beaumont manager Mathieu Alex.

Ace Impact's stud-mate Sealiway (Fr) has his first foals arriving this year having covered 165 mares last season.

Alex added, “The first foals by Sealiway are now on the ground and we couldn't be more pleased with them.”

Ace Impact's fellow first-season sire Bouttemont (Ire) has also made a fast start to his new stallion career at Rathbarry Stud. The first three mares covered by the son of Acclamation (GB) have been confirmed as pregnant in recent days and 20 other mares are holding service to him.

Rathbarry's Niamh Woods commented, “We are delighted with the start that Bouttemont has made to his stallion career. Every mare covered by him that has been scanned so far has turned up pregnant, so we couldn't ask for any more. He is proving to be very popular and we are particularly excited by the volume of stakes performing and stakes producing mares he is attracting. Our clients are finding him an easy stallion to like, as there is a big sense of déjà vu with him being a son of Acclamation that looks so similar to his sire and has his same easy temperament. He's going to get a great chance to succeed as a stallion.”
