This is a dream pairing: A colt by the sensational NIGHT OF THUNDER, trained by RICHARD HANNON. Who better to train him, than the trainer of Night Of Thunder himself!
The emergent, freshman sire of 2019 was almost undoubtedly, the "Group 1 Lockinge hero and winner of the finest 2,000 Guineas since 1971," Night Of Thunder. Being a son of the wonder sire Dubawi, it should be little surprise, that he’s shot to prominence, in such a short space of time. He’s already posting Group winners in 2020 so you can imagine our delight, in being able to purchase this fabulous son of the best, up and coming sire out there, who was being prepped for the Breeze Ups. See his stallion page and some impressive first season sire stats here: https://www.darleyeurope.com/stallions/our-stallions/night-thunder.
He ticks every box! He's from a Group 1 winning family, where the mare has already produced a 96 rated performer; a rather inexpensively purchased progeny. This colt, both physically and genetically, looks a significant upgrade on anything she has produced to date.
He’s bred to be a miler and we can't wait to watch his career blossom in the hands of the Herridge team.
Pedigree Update (18th June): "Night Of Thunder continued his march towards the upper echelons of the stallion ranks on Thursday when his son Molatham produced a smart display to win the Group 3 Jersey Stakes and give his sire a breakthrough success at Royal Ascot."

Racing Update: He was an expensive, private purchase last Spring, when the Breeze Ups were delayed. He’s taken a little while to come together, but our patience more than looks like being rewarded. He made a fabulous debut at Kempton last month, storming home, from off the pace, to almost snatch 2nd. He was massively talked up, post-race, by the pundits on TV. He was the only horse to get involved, that raced off the pace, and you can severely mark up his performance. He looks a very exciting proposition, going forward. If he proved to be a Group horse, or at the very least, a Royal Ascot horse of some sort, you wouldn’t be surprised. Very exciting! His race entries/declarations will show on this page.
