Several new sires, led by G1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe winner Torquator Tasso (Ger), sired their first reported foals on Thursday. He is joined by fellow second-year sires Caturra (Ire) and Tosen Stardom (Jpn).

The blaze-faced chestnut's first foal is a chestnut colt out of Soleila (Ger) (Maxios {GB}), who arrived at Gestut Ebbesloh on Wednesday night. He was bred by Franziska Jacobs. The celebrated middle-distance runner is standing his second season at Gestut Auenquelle for a fee of €20,000.

Caturra, a son of Mehmas (Ire) based at Overbury Stud, won the G2 Flying Childers S. and was placed in a pair of group races. His first foal is also a chestnut, a filly produced by Courteous Crown (GB) (Helmet {Aus}) and bred by Wayne Clifford. She arrived at Byerley Stud and is a half-sister to the 97-rated triple winner Zoulu Chief (GB) (Zoustar {Aus}). Caturra stands for €5,000 this year.

Tosen Stardom, a multiple Group 1 winner by Deep Impact (Jpn), sired his first known foal in Saudi Arabia on Wednesday. The colt, out of four-time winner Minnetonka (Munnings) herself a daughter of Grade III winner Queen Ofthe Catsle (Tale Of The Cat), is a homebred for Zenith Bloodstock. Tosen Stardom commands a fee of €5,000 this year at Zenith Stallion Station.
