Unfortunately | Scoop Dyga

Group 1-winning juvenile Unfortunately (Ire) (Society Rock {Ire}–Unfortunate {GB}, by Komaite) has been retired and will stand at Cheveley Park Stud in 2019. A fee for the 2017 French highweighted juvenile colt will be announced later. The Tally-Ho-bred and Karl Burke-trained €24,000 TATSEP yearling purchase made his first six starts for Jeff Laughton and Elaine Burke, winning the G2 Prix Robert Papin last July and the G1 Darley Prix Morny a month later. Cheveley Park Stud purchased Unfortunately after his Morny win. This year, Unfortunately added the G3 Renaissance S. at Naas and retires with a mark of 12-4-2-0 and earnings of $387,073.

“The highly talented and precocious Unfortunately is a gorgeous looking individual, with a quality outlook,” said Cheveley Park Stud Managing Director Chris Richardson. “Being a 2-year-old Group 1 winner, Unfortunately, very much compliments and enhances the commercial speed element of our stallion roster.”

Added Burke, “From day one Unfortunately proved to be a totally reliable, straight forward colt with great constitution, temperament and had ability to match. His performances during his 2-year-old season were top class.”

The sophomore is a half-brother to MGSW Look Busy (Ire) (Danetime {Ire}) from the extended family of MGSW Singing Steven (GB) (Balliol {GB}) and MSW General Streak (GB) (Firestreak {GB}).
