Lanwades A Study In Thoroughbred Excellence

Kirsten Rausing experienced a season to remember last year, with triple German Group 1 winner Alpinista (GB) (Frankel {GB}), G3 Albany S. and G2 Duchess Of Cambridge S. victress Sandrine (GB) (Bobby's Kitten) and the dual Group 1-placed Albaflora (GB) (Muhaarar {GB}) the highlights of a handful of talented fillies and mares on the racecourse. All three of those train on in 2022, and Rausing has plenty to look forward to in her stallion ranks at Lanwades Stud, too; Sea The Moon (Ger) stands for £25,000, his highest fee yet,...

Sunday Stallion Beat A Treat As Always

NEWMARKET, UK--There's still some important business to be done in the sale ring but the Sunday between the foal sale and the mare sale at Tattersalls always has something of an end-of-term feel to it as breeders tour the local studs to view stallions and sample a range of hot sausage rolls. First stop on a mini tour for the TDN team, which sadly did not include all the studs, was to Lanwades to see an impeccable quartet. One of the most enjoyable features of Kisten Rausing's traditional December open...

Sea The Moon Leads Lanwades Roster

Classic winner and Group 1 sire Sea The Moon (Ger), who has sired 13 2-year-old winners in 2021 and whose yearlings sold for up to 300,000gns at Tattersalls October, leads the Lanwades Stud roster for 2022. He will command a fee of £25,000. G1 Prix du Jockey Club victor Study Of Man (Jpn) (Deep Impact {Jpn}) will have his first yearlings in 2022, and he will stand for £12,500.

Study Of Man Foal In Kentucky

Singing Sweetly (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) gave birth to a filly foal by Study Of Man (Ire) (Deep Impact {Jpn}) at Stone Farm, Kentucky earlier this week. The filly is from the first crop of the Lanwades-based stallion, who won the G1 Qipco Prix du Jockey Club at Chantilly in 2018. The former Coolmore-owned Singing Sweetly was purchased by James Delahooke, on behalf of Bobby Flay, at last year's Arqana Breeding Stock Sale from Haras des Capucines for €125,000. "She's an excellent first foal--well balanced, correct and plenty of bone. A...

Value Sires Part II: First Foals

We kicked off our annual Value Sires series earlier this week with a look at the new class of sires entering stud in 2021, and today we move on to the group with their first foals set to hit the ground in the coming months. While it is not always a straightforward task to pinpoint value in unproven sires, the ripple effects of the global pandemic make the exercise a little more interesting this year. While it has become the norm for some young sires to get fee cuts in...

The Weekly Wrap: Long Live The King

In the space of a fortnight, Shadai Stallion Station lost its two flagship stallions, Deep Impact (Jpn) on July 30, and King Kamehameha (Jpn) on Aug.10. The pair won back-to-back runnings of the Tokyo Yushun (Japanese Derby) in 2004 and 2005. A year older than Deep Impact at 18, King Kamehameha had been pensioned earlier this year and his legacy at stud was outlined by Kelsey Riley in Saturday's TDN. Losing two such heavyweights in the same year is doubtless a blow to Shadai but in Japan's stallion table for...
