Meet The US Owner Behind A Lilac Rolla Who Is Full Of Admiration For Twomey

Who are the people behind the Mutual Admiration Society? The group of owners have enjoyed a whirlwind success with the unbeaten A Lilac Rolla (Ire) (Harry Angel {Ire}) and are gunning for Irish 1,000 Guineas glory. Trained by Paddy Twomey, A Lilac Rolla has gone from strength to strength and is by no means a back number in Sunday's Classic at general odds of 10-1. She has already accounted for the market leader Opera Singer (Justify) in a conditions race at the Curragh last year and American owner Amy King...

Nine-time Group 1 winner Anamoe (Aus) leads the 18-strong Darley Australia roster at A$121,000 in 2024, the organisation announced on Tuesday.

Harry Angel's Esquire Wins The Greenham

Saturday's G3 Watership Down Stud Too Darn Hot Greenham S. looked a renewal short of a potential big name beforehand and with a blanket in contention a furlong from home, that was duly borne out. In the event, it was Cheveley Park Stud's 16-1 shot Esquire (GB) (Harry Angel {Ire})--a gelding and therefore excluded from the upcoming 2000 Guineas--who emerged on top in the seven-furlong Newbury trial whose relevance to the Classic is questionable this year. Runner-up in York's Listed Rockingham S. and sixth in the Listed Doncaster S. over...

Harry Angel's A Lilac Rolla Wins The Priory Belle

Unbeaten entering Sunday's G3 Ballylinch Stud "Priory Belle" S. at Leopardstown, A Lilac Rolla (Ire) (Harry Angel {Ire}--Mejala {Ire}, by Red Ransom) carried on where she left off with a battling success from Kitty Rose (GB) (Invincible Army {Ire}). Last seen beating the subsequent G1 Prix Marcel Boussac heroine Opera Singer (Justify) at The Curragh in August, the Paddy Twomey-trained €40,000 Tatts Ireland September bargain was delivered to tackle Kitty Rose at the furlong pole and gave generously to Billy Lee to eke out a head success at odds of...

The Soaring Success of Dark Angel

It was fitting that Dark Angel's 100th stakes winner should have come in the Dick Hern S. at Haydock, a milestone which the ultra-reliable Yeomanstown Stud-based stallion reached thanks to the victory of the St. Albans Bloodstock home-bred filly Heredia (GB). Dick Hern, who sent out 16 British Classic winners including three winners of the Derby as well as his best horse Brigadier Gerard (GB), would have thoroughly approved of Dark Angel. Hern was an archetypal 'old-school' trainer who excelled with every type of horse. Late in his career he...

G3 Prix Sigy hero Marshman (GB) (Harry Angel {Ire}) has suffered a suspected pelvic injury after returning sore from a tune-up breeze last week for his intended outing in the G1 Coolmore Wootton Bassett Nunthorpe S. and will be out for the rest of the season. Conditioned by Karl Burke, the colt had won three of his nine career jumps and found his first Group black-type victory at Chantilly earlier this season in April when annexing the Prix Sigy. He had last been seen finishing eighth in Sandown's G3 Coral...

Mills Aiming for Double Guineas Success

Last year, Robbie Mills of RMM Bloodstock brought one horse to the Tattersalls Guineas Breeze-up Sale and scored a dream pinhooking result. A year on and that same filly, now known as Naomi Lapaglia (GB) (Awtaad {Ire}), is an intended starter in the QIPCO 1,000 Guineas after winning her sole run at two. The dream continues. But before Mills can look forward to next Sunday on the Rowley Mile, he first has another four breezers to put through their paces for the Guineas Sale on Thursday. The quartet is shaping...

“He Was Always A Class Horse” – Roger O'Callaghan On £500,000 Harry Angel Colt At Goffs UK Breeze-Up

DONCASTER, UK-It had felt like an apt morning to start a breeze-up sale: find a sunny nook away from the north wind, and it was a glorious spring day; find yourself exposed, and you felt a bitter parting shot of winter. That kind of polarity is pretty standard in this sector, but a stunning Goffs UK Breeze-Up Sale --headlined by a £500,000 Harry Angel colt from Tally Ho who became the most expensive Flat horse ever sold in this ring--allowed many vendors to bask, almost dazed, in their own personal...

Late in the day, a colt by Harry Angel (Ire) (lot 191) brought £500,000 from Michael O'Callaghan to take the lead at the Goffs UK Breeze-Up Sale at Doncaster. The price is a new record for the sale. Consigned by Tally-Ho Stud, the chestnut colt is a son of Listed Stonehenge S. winner Go Angellica (Ire) (Kheleyf), herself a half-sister to stakes winner Brendenbury (Ire) (Night Of Thunder {Ire}). Another half-sister produced dual group winner Twilight Jet (Ire) (Twilight Son {GB}). The colt was a €38,000 purchase out of the...

Harry Angel's Marshman Makes All For Sigy Success

Nick Bradley Racing and Elaine Burke's Marshman (GB) (Harry Angel {Ire}--White Rosa {Ire}, by Galileo {Ire}) had twice knocked on the door as a juvenile last year and delivered a first black-type triumph, tackling his third such contest, in Monday's G3 Prix Sigy at Chantilly. The Karl Burke trainee debuted with a six-furlong maiden win at Ayr in July, doubling up with an 8 1/2-length rout at Thirsk one month later, before running second in York's Aug. 19 G2 Gimcrack S. and a below-par fifth in Newmarket's Sept. 24 G1...

Al Dasim Secures Five-Timer in G3 Turf Sprint

The hugely progressive 3-year-old Al Dasim (Ire) (Harry Angel {Ire}) extended his winning streak to five with his first black-type success in the $250,000 G3 Nad Al Sheba Turf Sprint Sponsored By Emirates Holidays. Racing just behind the pace on the far side of the straight under Mickael Barzalona, the George Boughey-trained colt stalked leader Miqyaas (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}) before gradually reeling him in two out and taking the lead inside the final furlong. Miqyaas held on to take second for Rashid Boursely, finishing more than two lengths behind...
