We’re big fans of the Royal Ascot, Norfolk Stakes winner and now stallion, Prince Of Lir (sire of our 2022 Ripon Hornblower Conditions Stakes and Listed Harry Rosebery Stakes winner, Prince Of Pillo), as is the shrewd Robson Aguiar (Breeze Up Consignor of The Lir Jet). Read about his sire here: http://www.ballyhane.com/

He is a privately purchased, homebred by Robson himself. He’s a out of a Dawn Approach (Champion 2yo of his generation & 2000 Guineas winner,) mare who has produced one winner from her sole runner, to date. Robson, as you know is a good as any of the very best breeze up consignors, so when he is able to ring and inform us that this colt has competed in two, six runner gallops at home and remains unbeaten in both, we have to sit up and take notice.

He qualifies for just about every 2yo race, that’s scheduled in GB and he’ll have a number of early closing, sales race entries too; the sorts of race that MPR runners excelled in, in 2022 - Eddie’s Boy & Shouldvebeenaring being two notable examples.

We’ve chosen the very talented, up and coming, Newmarket trainer, Amy Murphy to take charge of his career. Not just that she’s talented, successful and a great communicator, but also, she’s very adept with race placement of horses in her charge, maximising opportunities both here and abroad, and typically in France, where prize money returns are phenomenal. Such race placement is a great string to her bow and we’re sure she’ll maximise our colt’s potential. Another good reason that we have placed him in Amy's hands, is that she trained his half-sister to win!

It’s most likely that we’ll race him for this season only and sell him at the Horses In Training Sales in October 2023. The only two scenarios that would deflect us from that, would be - should he prove to be a bit of a top class superstar, himself, and were the syndicate to vote to retain him as a 3yo for 2024, or secondly - should a BIG offer come in for him, during is 2yo career, that the syndicate were to choose to accept.

He’s great value, a son of a Royal Ascot 2yo winner. A really decent sized colt, he’s not just about the here and now though, running out of petrol come July, he’s definitely one for the entire 2023 season.

Here he is having a leg stretch at Robsons:
