Purplepay Another Winner For Zarak on Banner Day For Sire

Lael Stable's Purplepay (Fr) (Zarak {Fr}) garnered a bumper pot when running away with the Haras de Bouquetot Criterium Arqana on ParisLongchamp's Arc Saturday card and closed last term under the stewardship of Cedric Rossi with a third in Saint-Cloud's Oct. 23 G1 Criterium International. Making her debut for new connections in last month's G1 Irish 1000 Guineas at The Curragh, having been knocked down for €2-million at last year's Arqana December sale, she finished sixth there and rebounded in style to salute in Sunday's G2 Prix de Sandringham going...

One Master Foals Dubawi Colt

Roy and Gretchen Jackson's triple G1 Prix de la Foret winner One Master (GB) (Fastnet Rock {Aus}) has produced her first foal, a Dubawi (Ire) colt born on Jan. 27, and will be bred back to Frankel (GB), Gretchen Jackson told the TDN. One Master is one of around five mares that the Jacksons-the Pennsylvania-based breeders of Classic winners on both sides of the Atlantic in George Washington (Ire) and Barbaro-keep at New England Stud in Newmarket. She is a second generation homebred for the Jacksons' Lael Stables; they bought...

Rougir Now in U.S. and Brant Confident Purchase Will Work Out

Just three days after he and partner Michael Tabor spent €3 million on Group I winning filly Rougir (Fr) (Territories {Ire}) at the Arqana December Breeding Stock Sale, owner Peter Brant got a most unwelcome surprise. Rougir's trainer, Cedric Rossi, was arrested Dec. 7 as part of a probe into equine doping that also involved two other members of the Rossi family, Frederic and Charley. That brought into question whether or not he and his partners had purchased a horse whose successes on the racetrack were, at least in part,...

Jacksons Stay Loyal To The Racing Game

When Roy and Gretchen Jackson purchased their 190-acre property in Chester County, Pennsylvania, in 1978, they christened it Lael Farm, the Gaelic word for loyalty. Today, more than 40 years into the couples' transatlantic forays in the world of breeding and racing Thoroughbreds, that name could hardly be more appropriate. The Jacksons, both lifelong horse people, became household names in the sport and beyond in 2006 during their months-long attempt to save the life of their GI Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro (Dynaformer) after the colt suffered what was ultimately a...

Third Foret For Fastnet Rock's One Master

Enable (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}) may have come up short in her history bid on Sunday, but ParisLongchamp was still able to host a ground-breaking mare as One Master (GB) (Fastnet Rock {Aus}) brought up an unprecedented third victory in the G1 Qatar Prix de la Foret. Covered up early by Pierre-Charles Boudot as Godolphin's 7-5 favourite Earthlight (Ire) (Shamardal) took the bull by the horns after the first two furlongs, the 29-10 second favourite was launched a furlong out to reel in that rival in a frantic final 50 metres...

One Master Swoops For Oak Tree Success

Lael Stable's globetrotting One Master (GB) (Fastnet Rock {Aus}) had saluted just once in 10 starts since annexing the 2018 G1 Prix de Foret, doubling up in the latest renewal of that seven-furlong test, and she went postward for Friday's G3 Saint Clair Oak Tree S. at Goodwood as the 6-4 favourite coming back off a close-up fourth in this month's G1 Falmouth S. at Newmarket. Settled in a midfield seventh along the rail after an alert getaway from the inside stall, she was caught in a pocket--a la Kameko...
