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.
This colt is bred by ourselves, following on from when Ventura Jazz’s racing career was over. We have been thrilled by the individual that Ventura Jazz has thrown, in this fantastic looking, loose moving, son of the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile turf hero, Outstrip. We’ve only ever bred one horse before and she turned out a winner, which clearly bodes well. See a photo of him as a foal with his dam in the gallery!
Read about his sire here: https://www.darleyeurope.com/stallions/our-stallions/outstrip - in the gallery you can see a table of 2nd crop sire performances (stats dated 15/11/20), where Outstrip is doing well in 6th.
For all that Ventura Jazz didn’t win on the track for us, she is fantastically well bred, being a half-sister to the dual Group 2 winning, high class, Richard Hannon 2yo, CHAMPIONSHIP, who ran in The Coventry Stakes, having won easily at Newbury the previous month. It happens so often, that exceptionally bred fillies, such as Ventura Jazz, even if they’ve not shone on the racetrack, can produce top class racehorses, once a broodmare. Take our very own TRIGGERS BROOM for example; we sold her privately, following a rather unsuccessful racing career for us, but being really well related (a half-sister to XTENSION), she has gone on to produce top class racehorses, such as this year’s Group 1 Middle Park winner, SUPREMACY. if the genes are in there, they’re in there, so we’re distinctly hopeful that Ventura Jazz’s foals could easily prove top class on the track, given her slightly, blue blooded lineage.
Outstrip looked the perfect, sensibly priced, stallion to send her to, given he’s a son of Exceed And Excel (the sire of Championship). This makes this Outstrip yearling colt, a three parts brother, in blood, to CHAMPIONSHIP. It could prove a real recipe for success. Of course, a covering by Exceed And Excel would be an even closer genetic tie with those of Championship, but at €50,000 per nomination in 2018, that just seemed a financial bridge too far, for her first cover, so a visit to a son of Exceed And Excel proved the logical step. Hopefully she will earn the right, for a visit to him, should her progeny prove sufficiently successful on the track, rather like Triggers Broom.
See his walk video taken and narrated by Richard, here:
This colt looks, every inch, a racehorse and given both sides of his pedigree scream 2yo, there’s every reason to believe that that’s when, and how, he will operate. He qualifies for the new Median Auction series for 2021 and should get in lightly, in races such as the Redcar 2yo Trophy and races like the €250,000 Ballyhane Stakes and the €200,000 Foran Stakes held in Ireland next October.
He’s a thoroughly likeable individual who shapes up like a promising racehorse for 2021 and 2022. To date, we’re 1 from 1, from the breeding sheds, and we hope to continue in this, immaculate, vein!
Training Update (25th June):
Richard has given him some time off ridden work, to allow his knees to mature - this has served him well. He has been continuing his fitness work on the treadmill and has strengthened up into a stunning looking horse with a loose and fluid way of going about things and he should be ready to resume ridden work shortly. Richard says that this colt is a horse with a great attitude and is a very straightforward ride - putting his head down.
He’s by a Group 1 winning Juvenile, who’s dam is a half sister to a Group 2 winner and we can’t wait to see him debut on the track.
Here he is with Richard this morning:
