MGSW Threat to Stand in France


Threat | Tattersalls

MGSW Threat (Ire) (Footstepsinthesand {GB}-Flare of Firelight, by Birdstone) will stand at Haras du Mont Goubert, Jour de Galop reported on Tuesday. He will stand for €6,000,

The Richard Hannon trainee and 'TDN Rising Star' captured the G2 Gimcrack S. and the G2 Champagne S. and was runner-up in the G2 Richmond S. and G2 Coventry S., all as a juvenile. Bred by La Lumiere Partnership and a 100,000gns Tattersalls December foal, the Cheveley Park Stud colourbearer's record stands at 9-3-2-0 and $328,925 in earnings.

“It is rare to see such a 2-year-old start at stud in France, especially afer winning such prestigious group races in England,” Haras du Mont Goubert manager Victor Langlais told JDG. “He'll be supported by Haras du Mont Goubert, Haras d'Etreham and Coolmore, who are involved in his breeding career. They purchased the horse from Cheveley Park Stud. Twenty shares [of 60] are for sale at the rate of €20,000, with two seasons for life per share.”

Out of a half-sister to French listed winner and G2 Prix Corrida bridesmaid That Which Is Not (Elusive Quality), Threat counts European highweight and G1 Tattersalls Gold Cup heroine Shiva (Jpn) (Hector Protector) as his second dam. She in turn is a half-sister to G1 Oaks heroine Light Shift (Kingmambo), who has thrown another European highweight in Ulysses (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), a two-time Group 1 winner. This is also the female family of dual Eclipse Award winner Main Sequence (Aldebaran) and European champion Cloth of Stars (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire}).
