STABLE VISIT - If you are interested in taking a share in this colt, an appointment to view is available. Please email and we will arrange this for you. Please do not contact the yard directly.

BATED BREATH is a fantastic young sire; a champion sprinter himself, he has already produced the likes of the Group 2 winner and Group 1 placed Beckford and our own Ventura Blues amongst dozens of other winners. Read about his sire here: He seems to be imparting speed into his progeny and combined with the very speedy genes that the mare here provides, we look to have a really fast colt on our hands. So, who better to send the colt to, to be trained, than the trainer of Brando, Kevin Ryan. 

This colt was purchased by ourselves and ace bloodstock agent Federico Barberini; we teamed up 12 months ago to purchase the Group performer Marie's Diamond, so there's every reason to believe that this dark bay colt could emulate Marie's Diamond's heroic performances around Europe in 2019. Our colt is a great individual, he moves really well in his slower paces (please see the video on this page). He was Federico's favourite horse in the Arqana Vente 2 Yearling Sale. There were over 140 lots catalogued and we were delighted to pick this colt up in August for €21,000, we were expecting him to make a great deal more. The Arqana Vente 2 sale, produced this season's French 1000 and 2000 Guineas no less, so the sale is a proven source of quality producing racehorses, especially if you are purchasing a bloodstock agent's pick of the sale. 

He is also qualified for Owners' premiums in France, which means in flat races, open to foreign runners, owners of qualified French-bred horses, receive a premium for all places in receipt of prize money: 64% of prize money for 2yo’s 3yo’s and 4yo’s and 43% of prize money for 5yo’s and upwards.

We very much hope we have secured a high-class performer for Kevin Ryan and ourselves for 2019. Fingers crossed, anyway!

He’s by a top class sprinter (who can sire Group horses too) and he’s a half brother to a 5f winner. He’s a superb looking and moving individual who is a really well grown sort, for one so young. He looks the part and is bred to be too and looks the perfect fit for a Kevin Ryan trained colt (We have added a video of him cantering on the gallops.)

Trainer Update (5th April): He's a lovely colt who has plenty of speed and size about him. Kevin is really pleased by his progress. He's quite a tall horse who will probably race from mid season onwards. He hasn't been away for a grass gallop yet, he's cantering and galloping at home each day and has been upsides and did this very well. As the weather warms up, in May, Kevin will press on further, with a view to getting him on the track. New photos of him have been added this week.

We are delighted to report that he has his first race entry (shown on this page). It is the 'early closing' Class 2 £300k Weatherbys Bank 2yo Stakes at Doncaster, which of course Kevin won last year!
