Juddmonte will offer a trio of mares, two in foal to Frankel (GB) and the other in foal to Kingman (GB), at the Inglis Chairman's Sale on May 6.

Consigned by Olly Tait's Twin Hills Stud, the Invincible Spirit (Ire) mare Escapement (GB), a half-sister to Group 1 winners Timepiece (GB) (Zamindar) and Passage Of Time (GB) (Dansili {GB}), the latter the dam of breakout stallion Time Test (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}), is carrying to Frankel, as is Lucid Dreamer (GB) (Dansili {GB}). Lucid Dreamer is closely related to G1 St Leger winner Logician (GB) (Frankel {GB}). The third mare is Ludisia (GB) (Frankel {GB}), who is a full-sister to Group 3 heroine Fair Eva (GB) (Frankel {GB}) and is a half-sister to the dam of the 2021 European Champion 2-Year-Old Native Trail (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}). She is in foal to Kingman.

Frankel boasts sparkling strike rates of 30% black-type performers to runners and a 13% group winners to runners in Australia. His Converge (GB) won the G1 Randwick Guineas, joining fellow Southern Hemisphere Group 1 winners for his sire in Hungry Heart (Aus) and Mirage Dancer (GB).

“The development of the Inglis Chairman's Sale over the past few years has been noteworthy, making it an obvious choice for Juddmonte to showcase a select group of mares from some of our most established families,” Juddmonte's UK Stud Director Simon Mockridge said. “The mares to be consigned under Olly Tait's Twin Hills banner represent a unique opportunity for the Australian market to appraise and invest into deep Juddmonte pedigrees honed over generations and carrying to two elite international sires.

“Over the years, Juddmonte families have enjoyed great success in Australia/New Zealand through the likes of Group 1 winners Makybe Diva, Mr Baritone, Leicester, Kings Will Dream, Royal Performer and Queen Supreme and these results have been further buoyed by the emergence of Frankel and Kingman as sires of significant importance to the market.”

“We are naturally delighted to be presenting these mares at the Inglis Chairman's Sale on behalf of Juddmonte,” said Tait. “The mares represent some of Juddmonte's finest families, that have been carefully developed over decades and they would be worthy of a place in any broodmare band in the world.”

“This is a significant coup for the Chairman's Sale and an unprecedented opportunity for Australasian breeders,” said Inglis Senior Bloodstock Consultant and European Representative, Harry Bailey.

“The Juddmonte breeding operation is arguably the best in the world, so to have the opportunity to offer for sale mares they have specifically identified and managed with the Australian market in mind is a real honour.

“The catalogue is coming together beautifully and with entries closing soon, I encourage anyone with a mare that they think suitable, to contact a member of our Bloodstock Team to discuss arrangements.”
