The MPR and Richard Fahey 2-year-old success story!
We have a superb record with our juveniles trained by Richard. His is our only trainer who has sent 2-year old’s that we have purchased as yearlings, to race at Royal Ascot – every year since 2017! Simmy’s Copshop, Ninetythreetwenty and Ventura Rebel are these trailblazers and we think our new purchases are a step up again in quality.
The owners of Ninetythreetwenty and Ventura Rebel accepted multiple six figure offers for both these 2-year olds and consequently earned a fantastic profit, so we do know how to buy a talented yearling for Mr Fahey to train. Listed and Group winning fillies Sandiva and Lily's Angel were also superstars for us trained at Musley Bank.
Our 2019 Ripon, Hornblower Conditions race winner, Ventura Lightning (OR 100), bought in 2019 as a breeze-up colt, is one to look forward to back on the turf this season.
Purchased at the GOFFS PREMIER YEARLING SALE, this filly is by SHOWCASING. Read more about her sire here: https://www.whitsburymanorstud.co.uk/showcasemain.html
There are few new stallions that have ever made such an impact from relatively humble beginnings as Showcasing, with perhaps only Dark Angel being on a par. Showcasing has the huge ability to upgrade his mares and to add value to the quality to which their offspring perform.
A high-class sprinter himself, winning the Duke Of York Stakes, his progeny include the mighty Advertise and Quiet Reflection amongst many, many more. His stud career began with a covering fee of just £5000, but it has risen sharply and rapidly to its current £55,000. Conceived off a £35,000 cover in 2017 we believe we have stepped in for this filly at just the right time, to secure a fantastic, value purchase in the shape of this daughter of such a progressive young stallion.
Our filly, out of a very speedily bred Kyllachy mare, hails from a pedigree steeped in black type and Group performers. She is a half-sister to a talented 2yo by Swiss Spirit and the hope would be that Showcasing would impart both speed a talent, that could perhaps surpass those of Swiss Spirit. She’s a great mover and covers the ground fantastically well and we can envisage her stride pattern, simply eating up the ground, when we see her in her faster paces, as she progresses through her training programme.
She has been broken in at the same livery yard, we used to break in the above mentioned VENTURA REBEL last year and NINETYTHREETWENTY the previous year, so there’s every reason to hope that this filly can follow in their illustrious hoof-steps.
Please see her videos in the gallery.
Trainer Update (7th July): She really is a big powerful filly now - she has strengthened up and filled her frame very nicely in the past few weeks. She’s a lovely scopey filly and by allowing her to fill out more over the last few weeks, will be of significant benefit to her further down the line. We wouldn't want him to skip anything with this filly as we think she could be nice. Richard has her cantering away and says that she has been taking in all her work well.
