I've done this for a couple of years so here goes with an update for 2017

AFFINITY (SADLER'S WELLS X KALINKA, dam of ZEST) will visit LOPE DE VEGA

AFFINITY is a half sister to SOVIET SONG and SISTER ACT (herself dam of RIBBONS (G1, by MANDURO) and the 2 yo FTO maiden winner TRIBUTE ACT (by EXCEED AND EXCEL)

This is a pretty exciting covering to be honest-the stallion has started very well and his yearlings have been much in demand.

A further update.

MARLINKA (MARJU X BARALINKA) will visit ACCLAMATION. This foal will be a full sibling to G1 winner MARSHA

STARS ABOVE ME (EXCEED AND EXCEL x KALINOVA) will visit ACCLAMATION.

NEW FFOREST (OASIS DREAM x FFESTINIOG) will visit PIVOTAL

CHINA TEA (HIGH CHAPARRAL x MOLASSES) will visit SIR PERCY

SISTINE (DUBAI DESTINATION x FICKLE) will visit HOLY ROMAN EMPEROR

Obviously the Club has used a lot of these stallions, but we've not used Sir Percy before.  Interesting because the mare is a full sister to the useful French Middle distance colt MADAGAN, so you'd expect the progeny to want 10F plus...

I'll name the foal By Holy Roman Emperor ex Sistine for you. Sistine Chapel .

That may be quite popular I think Workrider.

Do you get involved with the Owners Group side of the syndicate Workrider ?

They have couple of foals on that side as well.

Not part of any syndicate atm 3132, although I ran one in the 90s , I have a massive interest in the breeding side of racing as well as been a punter.

Sadly Elites first foal of 2017(ACCLAMATION x CHINA TEA) was stillborn.

The mare is perfectly fine which is good news.

One hopes things can only get better....

Bollox BBC. I hope you're not due a run of it.

We all know it happens but you need a lift now. Let's hope for a new stakes horse this season!

Likewise PM!  We've been very lucky in the years I've been involved. The odd one or two of course which is inevitable.

Fingers crossed.

We've got some nice horses on the flat again. The team at Fanshawe's are all likely types.....

Thanks

I'm afraid its more bad news from The Elite Racing Club.

NEW FFOREST, a winner(OASIS DREAM-FFESTINIOG, sadly died whilst foaling a foal by IFFRAAJ last week-sadly so did the foal.

This is a hammer blow, as FFESTINIOG only produced one other filly (OCEANS APART-no longer owned by the Club), but was dam of the group winning colts such as EISTEDDFOD,  BORDER PATROL, BOSTON LODGE, and smart handicappers like MAN OF HARLECH.

The only fill remaining in the family owned by the club is New Fforest's yearling by RAVENS PASS.  Much depends on her now to keep the line going.
