Mehmas's Supremacy From Pillar To Post In the Middle Park

Tally-Ho Stud's first-season sire Mehmas (Ire) had firmly established himself as the leader in the category throughout the summer and one of the first major prizes of the autumn confirmed that status as his son Supremacy (Ire) made all in Saturday's G1 Juddmonte Middle Park S. at Newmarket. Out quickest under Adam Kirby, the 13-2 shot who had gone from a Windsor maiden win July 6 to a four-length success in the G2 Richmond S. at Goodwood July 30 met his greatest threat late on as the 5-2 favourite Lucky...

Belardo's Isabella Giles Bounds To Rockfel Triumph

Paul and Clare Rooney's Isabella Giles (Ire) (Belardo {Ire}) registered a pair of six-furlong wins--at Leicester in June and at Newbury in July--but lost her unbeaten tag when fourth in Ascot's July 26 G3 Princess Margaret S. before bouncing back to claim a first black-type score for her freshman sire (by Lope de Vega {Ire}) in Goodwood's Aug. 29 G3 Prestige S. when upped to seven furlongs last time. Aided by a strong tailwind over the same distance in Friday's G2 Shadwell Rockfel S. at Newmarket, the 11-5 chance continued...

Mehmas's Supremacy Lives Up To the Title In the Richmond

With an impressive listed winner already in the bag in Method (Ire), Tally Ho Stud's Mehmas (Ire) put more distance between himself and his fellow first-season sires on Thursday as the aptly-named Supremacy (Ire) registered a similarly commanding four-length success in Goodwood's G2 Qatar Richmond S. Off the mark in dynamic fashion in a six-furlong Windsor maiden July 6, the 11-2 shot was placed quickly at the head of affairs by Adam Kirby and found generously in the final furlong to draw away from the 13-8 favourite Yazaman (Ire) (Kodiac...

Lethal Force's Golden Horde Powers to Commonwealth Cup Triumph

Strong and direct at two and just the same on this seasonal return, AlMohamediya Racing's Golden Horde (Ire) (Lethal Force {Ire}) was the main player on Royal Ascot Friday as he provided trainer Clive Cox and jockey Adam Kirby with yet another major sprint when making virtually all in the G1 Commonwealth Cup. Always at the head of the stand's-side group and in front overall before two out, the 5-1 shot whose sire captured the G1 Diamond Jubilee S. for this partnership here in 2013 kept digging in to beat...

Red Armada Tops Goodwood Sale

The second edition of the boutique Goffs UK Goodwood Sale, held immediately after racing in the Goodwood parade ring, was topped by dual winner Red Armada (Ire) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}) (lot 1), the first horse offered. Overall, trade was very selective, with only two of the seven horses offered finding new homes for a gross of £475,000. Consigned by Clive Cox Racing, the son of listed winner Alumni (GB) (Selkirk) brought a bid of £275,000 from Charlie Dee of Lillingston Bloodstock. One of six winners of six runners from him...
