Half-Brother To Pouliches Runner-Up Kathmandu Makes Winning Debut at Newbury

New Bay | Ballylinch Stud


Godolphin's 525,000gns Tattersalls Craven Breeze-Up graduate Anno Domini (GB) (New Bay {GB}–Alegra {GB}, by Galileo {Ire}), a half-brother to last month's G1 Poule d'Essai des Pouliches runner-up Kathmandu (Ire) (Showcasing {GB}), made a winning debut in Thursday's Get 100/1 On England At BetVictor EBF Novice S. at Newbury.

2nd-Newbury, €12,000, Nov, 6-13, 2yo, 6 1/2fT, 1:18.73, g/f.
ANNO DOMINI (GB) (c, 2, New Bay {GB}–Alegra {GB}, by Galileo {Ire}) was squeezed for room early and raced four lengths off the pace through halfway in this debut. Bounding forward to launch his bid out wide passing the quarter-mile pole, the 11-8 favourite quickened smartly to gain an edge entering the final furlong and was ridden out in the closing stages to hold the late rally of Wild Clary (Ire) (Dark Angel {Ire}) by 3/4-of-a-length.

Anno Domini is the latest of eight foals and sixth scorer produced by a winning granddaughter of G1 Moyglare Stud S. third and stakes-winning matriarch Alouette (GB) (Darshaan {GB}), herself the dam of multiple Group 1-winning full-sisters Alborada (GB) (Alzao) and Albanova (GB) (Alzao).

Alouette's dynasty also includes multiple Group 1-winning Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe heroine Alpinista (GB) (Frankel {GB}) and G1 St Leger and G1 Irish St Leger hero Eldar Eldarov (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}). Anno Domini is a half-sister to last month's G1 Poule d'Essai des Pouliches runner-up Kathmandu (Ire) (Showcasing {GB}), Listed Silver Tankard S. victor Pythagoras (Ire) (Zoffany {Ire}) and Listed Montrose Fillies' S. winner Blue Gardenia (Ire) (Mastercraftsman {Ire}).
