Group winner Lope Y Fernandez (Ire) (Lope de Vega {Ire}) has had his first quartet of mares pronounced in foal, The National Stud announced on Monday. Happy Holly (Ire) (Holy Roman Emperor {Ire}), a half-sister to Group 1 winners Lily Of The Valley (Fr) (Galileo {Ire}) and Mubtaahij (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) is one of the foursome. Other mares in foal to the G3 Round Tower S. hero are Seven Empires (Ire) (Holy Roman Emperor {Ire}), herself a half-sister to four black-type winners; and Spain Blues (Fr) (Anabaa Blue {GB}), the dam of G2 Rockfel S. winner Spain Burg (Fr) (Sageburg {Ire}).

“Lope Y Fernandez has taken to his new job very well and the support he has received from breeders has been fantastic,” said Lord Grimthorpe. “He was a talented racehorse who is an excellent physical type, and given the quality of mares visiting him this year we are optimistic about his future.”
