Purchased at the Tattersalls Ireland Goresbridge Breeze Up Sale, he is by the 2020 leading first crop sire sensation MEHMAS.

He has made an electric start to his career at stud with over 60 winners and the likes of the Clive Cox-trained Gr.1 Middle Park Stakes and Gr.2 Richmond Stakes winner SUPREMACY, Gr. 2 GIMCRACK STAKES winner MINZAAL, Gr.3 winners FAYATHAAN, GOING GLOBAL and KEEPER OF TIME and Listed winners ACKLAM EXPRESS, METHOD and QUATROELLE leading the way.

Read a Mehmas story from the Racing Post here:

Mehmas is already a record-breaking stallion and imparts both lightning-fast speed and Group class quality into his progeny, precisely what he was himself during his racing career. It’s both notable and remarkable, just how precocious and hardy his progeny seem to be, on the track. He’s already established himself as producing horses who carry the label “has a Mehmas head carriage” denoting determination and tenacity. The stride patterns of his offspring are both lengthy and raking and cover plenty of ground. They tend to perform a tad better on top of the ground to date, but it’s early days still.

Here's his walk and profile video:

Silky Wilkie timed the 11th fastest of over 200 of his contemporaries and we’re convinced, therefore, that he represents fantastic value for money, given his hammer price of just £17,500 (before sales house and agents commissions).

Training Update: Purchased rather inexpensively at the Breeze Ups, but he’s been a real revelation, ever since. Loves York’s fast track but goes well at stiffer ones, such as Hamilton. May stay 6f as a 3yo, in 2022 and should be competing in Saturday and Festival Sprint handicaps. Remains open to plenty of improvement. TIMEFORM RATED 93.
