First Havana Greys On The Ground


Havana Grey colt out of Foxcatcher

First-crop foals by G1 Flying Five S. winner Havana Grey (GB) (Havana Gold {Ire}) are arriving, with two already on the ground at Whitsbury Manor Stud where the 5-year-old stands.

A colt out of Foxcatcher (GB) (Foxwedge {Aus}), a half-sister to two stakes winners, was born on Jan. 15. Whitsbury Manor Stud Director Ed Harper described him as, “a very strong colt.”

“He has lots of bone,” Harper said. “We haven’t weighed him yet, but he looks like he’d be nearing 60 kg. We’re delighted that he’s a lovely stone grey as we’re keen to see how dominant Havana Grey is in throwing his colour. It’s a real bonus when one of our best young mares has a good colt by our first-crop sire.”

He joins a filly out of Anneani (Ire) (Bushranger {Ire}), a half-sister to Group 3 winner and young sire Coulsty (Ire) (Kodiac {GB}), who was born the day before.

“She’s a bay filly with a lovely, pretty head,” Harper said. “It looks like we’ll be getting a mixture of bays and greys from the early evidence.”
