The colt was sold by Grangemore Stud at Tattersalls Book 2, for a fantastic price considering the average hammer price of a horse at the sale was over £76,000. He is Plus 10 Bonus registered.
Mayson has only been at stud for a couple of years but is making a name for himself for producing really fast 2-year-olds. From his first few crops, he has produced horses such as True Mayson, Dance Diva, Raydiance and Holmeswood. As a racehorse, Mayson was trained by Richard Fahey and developed into a really top-class sprinter. He was an out and out sprinter that was equally as effective at 5 furlongs as he was at 6. His greatest achievement came in the Group 1 Darley July Cup, where he beat a top-class field that included Society Rock and Sepoy.

This colts dam, Mail Express was a very lightly raced filly only racing 3 times. She managed to win her 3rd and final start over 6f, an impressive feat for a horse by Cape Cross. As a mare Mail Express has produced 6 foals of racing age; four of which have been winners. Mundana was her best progeny reaching a rating of 95 over her 4 starts for Luca Cumani.
This colt, from the family of Declaration Of War, has a pedigree packed with black type winners. Richard is a massive advocate of Mayson as a stallion and we hope our colt is the latest speedy 2 years old for this sire!
