Dual Group 1 Winner Saffron Beach To Be Offered At Tattersalls

Dual Group 1 winner Saffron Beach (Ire) (New Bay {GB}) is to be offered at the Tattersalls December Mares Sale which takes place from November 28 to December 1.  Trained by Jane Chapple-Hyam to win the Sun Chariot S. at Newmarket last season, Saffron Beach doubled her Group 1 tally when landing the Prix Rothschild at Deauville this year and she will highlight the new Sceptre Session at Tattersalls on Tuesday, November 29.   Saffron Beach was bought from Ballylinch Stud at the Tattersalls December Foal Sale by Norris/Huntingdon and has...

New Bay's Saffron Beach Outmuscles G1 Prix Rothschild Rivals

Last term's G1 Sun Chariot S. victrix Saffron Beach (Ire) (New Bay {GB}--Falling Petals {Ire}, by Raven's Pass) posted a fourth in Meydan's Mar. 26 G1 Dubai Turf before regaining the winning thread in Royal Ascot's June 15 G2 Duke of Cambridge S. and continued on a roll with a decisive victory in Tuesday's G1 Prix Rothschild at Deauville. The 3-5 favourite was swiftly into stride and held sway in the centre of the track from the outset of this straight one-mile test. Drawing the sting out of her six...

Rothschild Clash Kicks off Deauville August

Deauville's four-week bonanza begins on Tuesday with an array of class across four pattern races headed by the G1 Prix Rothschild, which brings together two of Europe's leading fillies in Saffron Beach (Ire) (New Bay {GB}) and Tenebrism (Caravaggio). While the former's stamina for this mile is assured and proven, TDN Rising Star Tenebrism has yet to confirm that the trip is within reach. Saffron Beach, who had already displayed her quality at this level when overpowering her rivals in Newmarket's G1 Sun Chariot S. in October, arguably performed to...

Chapple-Hyam Outlines Targets For Royal Ascot Stars

Trainer Jane Chapple-Hyam revealed plans for a pair of her Royal Ascot stars, with G3 Hampton Court S. hero Claymore (Fr) (New Bay {GB}) set for the G2 York S. on July 23. A winner at first asking as a juvenile, he was second to subsequent G1 Tattersalls Irish 2000 Guineas winner Native Trail (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}) in the Apr. 13 G3 Craven S. at Newmarket. Unplaced in the G1 French 2000 Guineas in mid-May, he bounced back in fine style at the Royal meeting. "I'm glad I know...

'I Have Seven New Bays out of 40 Horses': Chapple-Hyam on her Royal Ascot Heroes

Jane Chapple-Hyam may have lived in Britain for many years but she is still a proud Aussie and thus played her part in bringing an international feel to last week's results at Royal Ascot. And what a part it was. The powerhouse Coolmore and Godolphin stables of Aidan O'Brien and Charlie Appleby may have had more winners at the meeting, but Chapple-Hyam more than held her own on two winners, equal to William Haggas, Richard Fahey, Karl Burke and George Boughey, all of whom have greater reserves to call upon....

Seven Days: A Coronation in Chantilly

Just when you thought a fully-charged Royal Ascot couldn't be topped, along came Hollie Doyle.  The royal meeting was sadly missing The Queen for all five days this year but, France's republican tendencies aside, there are few in the racing world who would deny that Doyle is now the queen of Chantilly after reaching yet another milestone to become the first woman to ride a Group 1 Classic winner in Europe. Her great triumph came aboard Nashwa (GB) (Frankel {GB}) for Imad Al Sagar, who was achieving an important landmark...

The Major Talking Points From Day Three at Royal Ascot

There has been no shortage of talking points at Royal Ascot this week but, perhaps the most controversial incident of them all came in the opening race on Thursday, when Paul Hanagan received a 10-day careless riding ban for veering halfway across the track en route to victory in the G2 Norfolk S. aboard The Ridler (GB) (Brazen Beau {Aus}). From that controversy to another forgettable afternoon's work for Frankie Dettori, out of luck aboard Stradivarius (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire}) in the G1 Gold Cup and The Queen's 2-5...

New Bay's Claymore Wins The Hampton Court

There was so much focus on The Queen's Reach For the Moon (GB) (Sea the Stars {Ire}) in the build-up to Thursday's G3 Hampton Court S., it had almost assumed the air of a foregone conclusion but in the final analysis the Royal runner was second-best to the G3 Craven S. runner-up Claymore (Fr) (New Bay {GB}). With Frankie's day about to get even worse, Adam Kirby set off in front on Mary Slack's 7-1 second favourite and refused to let the Gosden runner past when it came down to...

New Bay's Saffron Beach Wins The Duke of Cambridge

Wednesday's G2 Duke of Cambridge S. offered another episode of stalls drama that seems to have dogged the first two days of Royal Ascot, but by the time Saffron Beach (Ire) (New Bay {GB}) had come home alone there was a sense that Sibila Spain (Ire) (Frankel {GB}) would have needed wings had she not been removed from the contest after going down in the gates. Making her European return under a five-pound penalty due to her winning exploits in Newmarket's G1 Sun Chariot S. in October, the Jane Chapple-Hyam-trained...

Dubai Turf Next For Saffron Beach

Group 1 winner Saffron Beach (Ire) (New Bay {GB}) is targeting the G1 Dubai Turf on Mar. 26. Trained by Jane Chapple-Hyam, the chestnut won both her starts at two, including the G3 Oh So Sharp S. She resumed last April with a second in the G3 Nell Gwyn S. and was runner-up to Mother Earth (Ire) (Zoffany {Ire}) in the G1 1000 Guineas on May 2. Off the board in the G1 Oaks and G1 Falmouth S. in June and July, respectively, the Sangster family and J. Wigan colourbearer...

New Bay's Saffron Beach In Command In The Sun Chariot

A picture of resilience on Newmarket's Rowley Mile on Saturday, Saffron Beach (Ire) (New Bay {GB}) comprehensively turned around the form of the G1 1000 Guineas with Mother Earth (Ire) (Zoffany {Ire}) in the G1 Kingdom of Bahrain Sun Chariot S. Runner-up to the Ballydoyle representative on contrasting good-to-firm in the May 2 Classic over this trip, the Jane Chapple-Hyam-trained 3-year-old who sports the Sangster silks was 5-1 off a win in the G3 Atalanta S. at Sandown Aug. 21 and bowled along under William Buick at the head of...
