The biggest, breakthrough sire of 2018 and 2019 has been No Nay Never, there can be no question of that. He’s the sire of the mighty European Champion 3YO Sprinter Ten Sovereigns; multiple winner including the Gr.1 July Cup, Gr.1 Middle Park Stakes & Gr.3 Round Tower Stakes, Arizona - winner of the Gr.2 Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot, Mystery Power - stylish winner of the Gr.2 Superlative Stakes, Land Force - a 3-time winner including the Gr.2 Richmond Stakes & Listed Tipperary Stakes, Shadn - winner of the Gr.2 Criterium de Maisons-Laffitte & Listed Rose Bowl Stakes, Nay Lady Nay - winner of the Gr.2 Mrs Revere Stakes, Gr.3 Matchmaker Stakes & Park Fall Oaks for Chad Brown, Chestnut Honey - Gr.2 Premio Federico Tesio, Listed Gran Premio d'Italia & Listed Premio Merano winner for Alduino Botti, Wichita, the very impressive winner of the Group 3 Somerville Tattersalls Stakes, third in the Gr.1 Dewhurst Stakes & Gr.1 St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot, Vitalogy - winner of the Gr.3 Palm Beach Stakes and Need I Say More - dual winner including the Gr.3 Waikato Stud Slipper Stakes. Just a few of his black type winners from around the world!
And 2020 is another stellar season, as September 26th provided another top flight winner for the sire!
In 5 years’ time, No Nay Never could easily be rivalling the mighty Galileo himself, if he continues on his upward climb.

Please note that in 2019 the nomination price for a mare to be covered by No Nay Never was €100,000 and in 2020 the price rises to €175,000. The Racing Post reported - "Ten Sovereigns' success in the July Cup was the pinnacle of another big year for No Nay Never, who has again received a sizeable fee increase, having been upped to €175,000 for 2020, just 12 months after his fee was quadrupled to €100,000."
Here, we’ve sourced a fantastic yearling colt from the sale that has provided us, previously, with Dee Stakes winner VIREN’S ARMY, Group 3 Prix Du Calvados winner GREAT PAGE and the Group 3 winner/Group 1 placed MARIE’S DIAMOND. It’s a fabulously underrated sale, in our opinion; and it’s proved a very happy hunting ground for us, year in, year out; we’re delighted to buy from Tattersalls Ireland, each and every year!
His dam has a proven record too, as she’s already produced the 95 best RPR rated Westadora - she has now gone to the breeding sheds too.
We very much see him being a progressive individual, throughout his career, he’s far from a one trick, 2yo pony! He has a good attitude to his work and has a lovely size and scope to him - he really is an attractive looking colt and is exactly the type we bought - with a physique to take him through to a 3 year old and beyond career.
He is 'PLUS 10 BONUS' qualified. Read more here: https://www.plus10bonus.com/
Pedigree Update: In Kevin Blake's blog for At The Races. he says - "2015 has proven to be a truly remarkable year for new stallions. The likelihood of “one of the ones” emerging from any one crop is low enough, but against all the odds, the crop of sires that commenced their covering duties in Europe in 2015 has managed to produce two exceptional stallions in the shape of KINGMAN and NO NAY NEVER.
With less than two years having passed since they had their first winners as sires, the achievements of their progeny has seen Kingman’s nomination fee rise to £150,000 and No Nay Never’s increase to €175,000. Of all the sires in Europe, only Galileo, Dubawi and Frankel stand for higher fees. That is as elite as it gets." Read the full story here: https://www.attheraces.com/blogs/kevin-blake/20-April-2020
Training Update: He looks a devilishly well handicapped young horse. He’s still a big baby, but when the penny drops, he could easily rattle up a sequence. All Weather, Chester and Haydock look like they’re in his agenda.
He's turning into a bit of a poser at home too!
