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!
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 in previous seasons.
In 2020 Ventura Diamond shone when winning the Listed Bosra Sham Stakes at Newmarket, after also winning a Conditions race and lighting up the Qatar Goodwood Festival with a win on her 2nd start. With a Timeform rating of 101, she will be an exciting filly for 2021 as a 3-year-old.

Purchased from Ireland's premier sale; The Goffs Orby, this colt is by the super sire KODIAC.

This fabulous colt, possesses a sensational walk and moves like a dream in his slower paces. Watch his walk and profile video here:
He’s built like a sharp and very racy 2yo and looks destined to be operating in 2021 as an early sort, over 5f and 6f. He looks typical of the sort of horse who could line up in the Norfolk Stakes or Coventry Stakes: In fact, Babylonian, our colt’s mare, has already produced the Group 2 Norfolk Stakes runner up SANTRY (by Harbour Watch), who was a dual winner in his 2yo year, prior to Royal Ascot. Both sire and dam know how to produce Royal Ascot performers, it would seem, and we fully expect that this stunning colt, could follow in his predecessors’ and close relatives’ hoof steps.
He’s a thoroughly exciting colt for Richard to train for 2021.
Training Update (30th April): We just had to back off him for a few weeks whilst his growth plates matured, something that is very common with 2 year olds, it's just waiting for the skeleton to mature and strengthen before kicking on with him again. If you pressed on whilst these changes were happening you'd do some serious damage. He is getting on well now and we have gradually increased his walker exercise in preparation for returning to ridden exercise. He is due to start ridden exercise from the beginning of next week where we will build his fitness up, as he has done well with all the other educational work required prior to starting his racing career.
