Juddmonte stallion and GISW Expert Eye (GB) (Acclamation {GB}) welcomed his first four reported foals in late January, the stud announced on Tuesday. Leading the quartet, is a bay filly out of Domitilla (GB) (Cape Cross {Ire}) foaled at Old Buckenham Stud on Jan. 25. Her second dam won an Italian listed stake, while this is also the family of Italian highweight and GSW Kyllachy Loose (GB) (Kyllachy {GB}).

The 2018 GI Breeders' Cup Mile victor's second foal arrived at Ballyogue Stud on Jan. 27. The bay colt, out of G3 International S. victress Precious Gem (Ire) (Sadler's Wells), is owned by Sally Rowley-Williams. He is “a good size with plenty of bone, good colour, very correct, a very nice foal,” John Lenihan reported. Japanese MG1SP Fiero (Jpn) (Deep Impact {Jpn}) is under the second dam, herself a full-sister to European Horse of the Year Rock of Gibraltar (Ire) (Danehill).

Another bay colt was produced by the winning and MGSP Oeuvre d'Art (Ire) (Marju {Ire}) at Trinity Park Stud on Jan. 28. Becky Marsh described the new arrival as “a lovely, strong colt with plenty of class.” His dam is a daughter of Italian SW Midefix (Ity) (Night Shift).

Rounding out the foursome was a dark bay colt who also arrived on Jan. 28. Foaled at the Irish National Stud, he is out of Rickrack (Ire) (Teofilo {Ire}), a half-sister to Hong Kong MSW Arasina (Ire) (Footstepsinthesand {GB}), runner-up in the G1 Champions Mile.

Expert Eye, who covered 139 mares last year, stands at Juddmonte's Banstead Manor Stud for £17,500 in 2020.
