There’s a saying in racing; “everyone loves a grey” and it’s pretty much true, so it was almost certainly of little surprise to breeder Richard Botterill, that, when first setting foot in the World, this lovely yearling colt turned out to be, just like his father Lethal Force, a grey. Lethal Force is the sire of Golden Horde, the recent Group 2 Richmond Stakes winner. He’s an impressive young stallion, who was a very fast and precocious horse himself, yet he trained on magnificently well to take the Hungerford Stakes, the July Cup and the Diamond Jubilee at Royal Ascot.
Very sensibly, the breeder of our colt, in this instance, sent his quick mare Kenyan Cat (by the speed influence One Cool Cat) to the speedy sire Lethal Force, having previously had her covered by the middle distance sire Morpheus. Kenyan Cat’s Morpheus produce, Shining Armor, is by some way (5 lbs in fact), the very best progeny of his sire ever, displaying Kenyan Cat’s talents at imparting ability into her stock. Should she impart 5lbs more to her Lethal Force colt’s talents, than any other Lethal Force progeny, and we’d be looking at a horse, here, rated around 117. Now that’s probably unlikely to happen, but it’s not beyond the realms of possibility; if the speed genes of the mare, link nicely with the speed genes of the sire, then we could be in serious business.
Mark Johnston is very adept with his fast 2yo’s (our own Marie’s Diamond, as well as Raffle Prize, to name but two of the more recent examples) but his horses really train on too, in keeping with Lethal Force’s career himself. He looks the perfect trainer for this fantastic looking individual.
We look set fair, for a fabulous 2020 and beyond, with this yearling colt, who appears to have a great physical to match his undoubtedly, talented genes. He’s a very strong individual, who moves well. He looks tough and robust and has all the assets you’d look for in a potentially high class 2yo.
Pedigree Update: GOLDEN HORDE gives Lethal Force a Group 1 winner in the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot. Read the story here: https://www.racingpost.com/bloodstock/bloodstock-latest/commonwealth-cup-hero-golden-horde-gives-lethal-force-a-maiden-group-1-winner/438654
Pedigree Page update (29th June): Zim Baby, out of our colt's dam, Kenyan Cat, wins by 7 lengths at Thirsk!
Trainer report (10th July): Charlie reports that he has now had his first gallop out of the stalls and on the grass. He travelled through fine but he was a bit green, so he’ll have another gallop out of the stalls to give him the experience for the racecourse. We should seem him on the track in August. We are pleased to confirm that he has now been named, FAIRMAC.
Here he is on the gallops, cantering upsides (nearside.)
