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 at the Tattersalls Book 2 Sale, this colt is by the 2020 leading first crop sire in Europe, MEHMAS and is from the family of 2,000 Guineas winner GOLAN.
MEHMAS has made an electric start to his career at stud with the likes of the Clive Cox trained GROUP 1 Middle Park Stakes and GROUP 2 Richmond Stakes winner SUPREMACY, GROUP 2 GIMCRACK STAKES winner MINZAAL, Group 3 winner GOING GLOBAL and Listed winners ACKLAM EXPRESS, METHOD and QUATROELLE leading the way. Supremacy was rated the top British-trained 2yo of 2020 with a rating of 118. Read all about his sire here: http://www.tallyhostud.com/mehmas
Every other year or so, racing unearths a new stallion star and MEHMAS seems to be every inch of that. He broke the all-time record for winners for a first season sire, which is amazing, in a season curtailed by the Covid-19 virus.
A more fluent walker, you couldn’t wish to see, than this colt, so we took no time at all to decide that we wanted him aboard our roster, for Richard Fahey to train.
Watch his walk video here:
We were absolutely thrilled to secure his services for 30,000gns, a figure that we feel represents outstanding value, given the level interest in Mehmas’ progeny, throughout the sales’ season. We feel sure he’ll prove a popular recruit and he looks a really a sharp and early sort for the beginning of the 2021 season. He has all the hallmarks of a high class, early juvenile performer.
We can’t wait to see him on the track.
What a sire sensation Mehmas has been in his first season! Read a story on him here: https://www.racingpost.com/bloodstock/stallion-fees/mehmas-set-for-hefty-rise-on-tally-hos-seven-strong-roster/460129
and he continues to impress in 2021!
Training Update (April 20th): His knees needed to be allowed to mature and this is very common with 2-year-olds as they are so young and maturing, growing and strengthening. This isn’t a bad sign, it’s just nature.
The vet had a look at him today and he’s seen plenty of maturing from his knee growth plates in the month off that we have given him. We are now in a position where we can start him up once again. He has been taking his education work very well to this stage and the break often tends to do the horse the world of good as they haven't really had any time off since the sales and horses cannot grow and work at the same time, it takes too much energy and you tend to find, when you back off horses that a sudden growth spurt follows. It’s a very long season and he remains an exciting horse for the coming year and beyond.
