Study Of Man Foal In Kentucky


Singing Sweetly and her Study Of Man filly | Jordan Thompson

Singing Sweetly (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) gave birth to a filly foal by Study Of Man (Ire) (Deep Impact {Jpn}) at Stone Farm, Kentucky earlier this week. The filly is from the first crop of the Lanwades-based stallion, who won the G1 Qipco Prix du Jockey Club at Chantilly in 2018.

The former Coolmore-owned Singing Sweetly was purchased by James Delahooke, on behalf of Bobby Flay, at last year's Arqana Breeding Stock Sale from Haras des Capucines for €125,000.

“She's an excellent first foal–well balanced, correct and plenty of bone. A lot of quality to both the mare and the foal,” said Stone Farm's Lynn Hancock. “I don't think there will be too many Study Of Man foals born in the U.S. this year. But he was a very talented racehorse, by Deep Impact, and this filly is an excellent model. It's pretty cool to have some Sunday Silence blood back on the farm as well.”

Flay confirmed that the mare will be bred to Violence (Medaglia d'Oro) this season. “Violence is one of the young stallions I'm very bullish on. He's had a few crops and is proving to be successful long, short, dirt and grass,” said Flay. “He fits this mare since her pedigree is both European and American. Violence gives her a great shot at producing a fast horse.”

Violence, sire of Volatile, No Parole and Dr. Schivel, will stand at Hill 'n' Dale at Xalapa this season for $25,000.
