Frankel's Inspiral Remains Perfect After Fillies' Mile Triumph

Cheveley Park Stud's undefeated 2-year-old filly Inspiral (GB) (Frankel {GB}), whose run of three straight successes included impressive wide-margin tallies in Sandown's Listed Star S. and Doncaster's G2 May Hill S., entered winter quarters at the forefront of the juvenile fillies' division after posting another taking score in Friday's G1 bet365 Fillies' Mile at Newmarket. In so doing, she emulated 2017 scorer Laurens (Fr) (Siyouni {Fr}), who also picked up Doncaster's May Hill en route to victory in this straight test. Inspiral had earlier overcome a slow start to debut...

Bold Pinhook Paces Book 1 Opener

By Emma Berry and Kelsey Riley NEWMARKET, UK--Philipp Stauffenberg is well known for being a pretty fearless pinhooker but he surpassed even his own decent results of the recent past when selling a full-sister to Arizona (Ire) (No Nay Never) to Cheveley Park Stud for 825,000gns. A further compliment to the filly's family was paid by having the team from Juddmonte as underbidders, and this type of scenario was in Stauffenberg's mind when he paid €260,000 for lot 110 at Goffs last December. "She was a very good physical but...

Frankel's Inspiral Powers To May Hill Triumph

Cheveley Park Stud's hitherto undefeated 2-year-old filly Inspiral (GB) (Frankel {GB}) lit up Sandown with an impressive 3 1/2-length tally in going seven furlongs in July's Listed Star S. and took her record to a perfect three-for-three with another taking display upped to one mile for Thursday's G2 Cazoo Park Hill S. at Doncaster.

Premier Sale Ends On A High

DONCASTER, UK--Any fears that a reduced catalogue and lack of high-end Maktoum participation could lead to a soft market at the Goffs UK Premier Sale were firmly quashed as the auction came to a close on Wednesday in Doncaster with a set of results that compared favourably with the pre-Covid era. At 366 lots, Goffs UK compiled a catalogue that was 8.5% smaller than last year. Yet in a testament to the quality of horse on offer, not to mention the appetite of buyers on the ground, the sale returned...

Sacred Possible For Breeders' Cup

Cheveley Park Stud homebred Sacred (GB) (Exceed and Excel {Aus}) is targeting the G1 Prix de la Foret after returning to form with a win in the Aug. 14 G2 Hungerford S., but trainer William Haggas has also nominated the Breeders' Cup at Del Mar as a possibility for the 3-year-old filly who wants firm ground. "Before the Foret the only possible is the [G2] Park S. at Doncaster, but she has to have to fast ground," said Haggas. "Unfortunately fast ground Arc weekends are few and far between these...

Exceed and Excel's Sacred Too Strong In The Hungerford

Saturday belonged to William Haggas, with two of the Newmarket handler's pattern-race successes coming at the same time during an action-packed period mid-afternoon. While Dubai Honour (Ire) (Pride of Dubai {Aus}) was causing an upset at Deauville in the G2 Prix Guillaume d'Ornano, the yard's Sacred (GB) (Exceed and Excel {Aus}) was tearing it up in Newbury's G2 BetVictor Hungerford S. Back from a weather-enforced break having failed to see out the mile of the G1 1000 Guineas when seventh at Newmarket May 2, Cheveley Park Stud's impressive G3 Nell...

Cheveley Park Stud's homebred 2-year-old filly Inspiral (GB) (Frankel {GB}), a daughter of G1 1000 Guineas and G1 Coronation S. runner-up Starscope (GB) (Selkirk), overcame a slow start to prevail in a June 26 maiden going seven furlongs at Newmarket on debut last time and laid down a marker with an impressive 3 1/2-length win in Thursday's Listed British Stallion Studs EBF Star S. over the same trip at Sandown. Anchored at the tail of the field after a deliberate break, the even-money favourite made rapid headway on the bridle...

Dutch Art's Starman On Top In The July Cup

With the weather staying clear ahead of Saturday's G1 Darley July Cup at Newmarket, David Ward's Starman (GB) (Dutch Art {GB}) had his day to deliver on all the abundant promise he had shown so far in his brief career in a strong renewal. Successful in the May 12 G2 Duke of York S. over this six-furlong trip, the 9-2 second favourite was buried in mid-division of the group racing stand's side throughout the early stages with the pace rapid up ahead. Staying on powerfully up the rising ground to...

Dark Angel's Indie Angel Springs A Surprise In the Duke of Cambridge

In hindsight, a starting price of 22-1 on a Cheveley Park Stud-owned filly trained by the Gosdens and ridden by Frankie Dettori at Royal Ascot was bordering on the ludicrous and despite her form deficiencies Indie Angel (Ire) (Dark Angel {Ire}) stepped up to make a mockery of those odds in Wednesday's G2 Duke of Cambridge S. Since Palace Pier (GB) (Kingman {GB}) exited the stall closest to the stand's side in the meeting's opening G1 Queen Anne S. the day before, all bar one of the races staged on...

Mayson's Oxted Storms To King's Stand Success

Providing a boost for Saturday's G1 Diamond Jubilee S. favourite Starman (GB) (Dutch Art {GB}), Oxted (GB) (Mayson {GB}) who had previously felt the force of that ascendant sprinter stormed to victory diverted to Tuesday's G1 King's Stand S. Third to that Ed Walker trainee in the May 12 G2 Duke of York S. on his most recent start, last year's G1 July Cup hero was reunited with Cieren Fallon on his first try at this five-furlong trip and the alignments were perfect as he came home strong to deny...

Coventry Glory For Dark Angel's Berkshire Shadow

Leaving it late on debut when scoring over an extended five furlongs at Newbury Apr. 16, Berkshire Shadow (GB) (Dark Angel {Ire}) was again one of the last on the scene as he swooped to conquer in Tuesday's G2 Coventry S. First time up, the winner had spotted subsequent TDN Rising Star Gisburn (Ire) (Ribchester {Ire}) several lengths headstart with his tardy break before showing his class. With the strong tempo in part carved out by Gregory Kaufman's Kaufymaker (Jimmy Creed) and this more suitable trip to aid him, he...

Commonwealth Cup in the Cards For Sacred

Cheveley Park Stud homebred Sacred (GB) (Exceed And Excel {Aus}) is being pointed at the G1 Commonwealth Cup S. at Royal Ascot. Runner-up in a trio of Group 2 events in 2020, the William Haggas charge captured the G3 Lanwades Stud Nell Gwyn S. at Newmarket on Apr. 14, but tired to seventh in the May 2 G1 QIPCO 1000 Guineas when last seen. "That [Commonwealth Cup] is the wish at this point in time," said Cheveley Park Stud Managing Director Chris Richardson. "We thought that she didn't stay in...
