News for 2012 Lanwades successes

31st March 2012

15th individual group one winner for selkirk

CITYSCAPE by SELKIRK became his sire's 15th individual Gr.1 winner when impressively taking the Gr.1 Dubai Duty Free at Meydan today by four and a quarter lengths winning a total of nearly £2 million in prize money. Previously the winner of three Gr.3 races, this was CITYSCAPE's first win at the top level for his owner/breeder HH Prince Khalid Abdulla's Juddmonte Farms and trainer Roger Charlton. This win was thoroughly deserved for the ultra consistent CITYSCAPE whose previous run had been when only narrowly beaten in the Gr.1 Hong Kong Mile at Sha Tin in December. Juddmonte Farms have now bred three Gr.1 winners by SELKIRK - WINCE (winner of the 1,000 Guineas), ANNOUNCE (winner of the 2011 Gr.1 Prix Jean Romanet) and now CITYSCAPE. Many congratulations to all concerned and we thank them for their loyality to Lanwades.

20th March 2012


The foal count is up by five, and four of them are bay fillies.

The sole colt is a chesnut son of SELKIRK and the COZZENE mare RYELLA. A half-sister to a Canadian Graded winner and a US Listed winner out of a half-sister to Middle Park Stakes winner AD VALOREM, RYELLA has already bred a decent winner with her first foal and only runner to date, RALLY AGAIN, a son of AWESOME AGAIN who was a stakes winner and classic-placed in Russia last year. RYELLA will stay at home to visit HERNANDO by whom she has a really good yearling colt, which will be offered at the sales under our Staffordstown banner this year.

Also staying at home to be covered after foaling by a Lanwades sire are CARIBANA and MISS PRISM. CARIBANA’s daughter is by ARCHIPENKO and she will now be covered by SELKIRK, sire of her first foal daughter CUBANITA, an impressive winner of a 17 runner maiden last year at two for Ralph Beckett and who holds a 2012 Epsom Oaks entry. This is the fourth filly in as many foals for CARIBANA, a homebred HERNANDO grand-daughter of Yorkshire Oaks winner KEY CHANGE. Fifth-generation Lanwades-bred MISS PRISM's SIR PERCY daughter is her eighth filly foal, and 11th live foal in total. She is dam of five winners including Timeform 117 rated ISLAND LIGHT; she will visit AUSSIE RULES.

French Group 3 winning juvenile SONGERIE has a fourth foal in as many years by a Kentucky-based horse, this time a daughter of the ROBERTO line horse ARCH. SONGERIE’s LANGFUHR two-year-old daughter SOLACE, is in training with John Gosden and she has a yearling colt by BIRDSTONE, which will be sold from Staffordstown this year.

The British Bloodstock Agency owned 2010 December Sales acquisition CHIRKOVA has produced a filly by DANSILI. A daughter of SADLER'S WELLS and a full-sister to German Listed winner and Gr.1 runner-up POSEIDON ADVENTURE, CHIRKOVA is also a grand-daughter of SABIN, winner of 18 races, many at Gr.1 and Gr.2 level, and a million dollar earner.

19th March 2012


As the Cheltenham Festival came to a close for another year Lanwades bred two winners in the evening one at Wolverhampton and one over in Ireland at Dundalk.  First up at Wolverhampton was RASHEED a now four-year-old gelding bred by Miss K Rausing and Mrs S M Rogers who was winning his fourth race of his career when staying on strongly in the two and a half mile handicap to win by seven lengths.  He is trained by John Gosden and now owned by his wife Rachel Hood and this distance certainly seems to suit him as he continues to improve.  His dam, ALEXANDRINE, has bred six winners from seven runners.

Next was a maiden win for CHINA ONE a three-year-old colt by MOTIVATOR ex HOT TO TANGO who was bred by Miss K Rausing and Niarchos Family and sold as a foal.  CHINA ONE was having his first start and he won the Navan Lock & Key Maiden at Dundalk over a mile and a quarter in impressive style and certainly looks one to follow. He is in training with P D Deegan in Ireland.

Three-year-old filly SOHO ROSE won on her second attempt at Saint-Cloud on Saturday over a mile a quarter.  SOHO ROSE is a full sister to Gr.2 winner and Listed winner (at 2) HANAMI, both being by Lanwades sire HERNANDO out of RUSSIAN ROSE.  She is trained in France by Mr H A Pantall and owned like her sister by Mr Guy Heald who is a Director of the British Bloodstock Agency (see whose mares and young stock are boarded at Lanwades.

9th March 2012


The new boy at Lanwades, AUSSIE RULES, had another three-year-old winner yesterday this time at Wolverhampton.  YARRA VALLEY,  a filly, having her third run of her career was held up, made some good headway two furlongs from home to take the 7f maiden in what looks to be a decent race.  She is owned and trained by Willie Musson and was bred by AUSSIE RULES’ breeder Denford Stud who are supporting the horse again in 2012 by sending some good mares.

CAVALEIRO remains in the derby

Following a forfeit stage for this year’s Epsom Derby which takes place on Saturday 2nd June and will mark the first official event of her Majesty The Queen’s long weekend of Diamond Jubilee Celebrations, amongst the remaining entries is CAVALEIRO who is by 2006 Derby victor SIR PERCY and trained like his father by Marcus Tregoning who revealed: “We have obviously got quite a way to go with Cavaleiro before the Derby, but we will run him in a trial and take it from there. He’s had plenty of experience as a two-year-old and won his latest two starts, which was good. He’s going to have to step up considerably on his next start and we are thinking about either the Lingfield Derby Trial, Chester or Sandown.  I also haven’t ruled out the possibility of running him in the Feilden Stakes at Newmarket, which might suit him. Physically, he has done very well over the winter and we are very pleased with him on that score. He’s quite a laid-back horse, who keeps finding a bit, so we are hopeful that he can continue to progress. “It’s very exciting for Sir Percy. He did very well last year and the quality of the mares that he is receiving is getting better. It’s early days for him as a stallion but we have been very pleased for him. We were very lucky to have him and he was a wonderful flag-bearer – hopefully his progeny can continue that success.”

whose lustre hasn't faded”





2nd March 2012


HAPPY SUN PERCY a three-year-old colt by SIR PERCY has won his first race at Deauville over six and a half furlongs. HAPPY SUN PERCY was placed in his last two starts and just managed to win this race by a head to become the first winner for his dam QUESTION. He was bred by Heather Raw, sold as a foal at the Tattersalls December Sales and later re-sold at Doncaster Premier Yearling Sales for £40,000. SIR PERCY has started the year as he means to go on with two runners in France so far and both are now winners.

1st March 2012


Lanwades bred another winner by SIR PERCY when SAFIR PRINCE just managed to hold on to take the Prix de Rangueil at Toulouse yesterday.  It was his first start of the year after one run as a two year at the backend of last year.  SAFIR PRINCE was sold as a foal in the St Simon consignment at the 2009 Tattersalls December Foal Sale together with his dam COMMON REQUEST who was sold in the Lanwades consignment at the mare sale. SIR PERCY sired 11 individual winners of 18 races including Listed winner COQUET, Gr.1 placed SALFORD ART and Listed placed winners PERCY JACKSON and ALLA SPERANZA with his first crop two-year-olds in 2011.

28th February 2012

weekend arrivals

A four-foal assortment arrived over the weekend, three colts, one filly and in three different ownerships.

AKDARENA, a homebred Group 3 and Listed winner at three in 2010, trained by Jim Bolger, foaled a first-foal bay colt by GALILEO. By HERNANDO and a great-granddaughter of Arc winner AKIYDA, AKDARENA will return to Ireland to visit SEA THE STARS. The other Lanwades-owned arrival is also a first foal, a chesnut colt by ARCHIPENKO ex MME DE STAEL, a winning half-sister to Gr.1 winner LADY JANE DIGBY who will now visit AQLAAM.

Susan Roy's Newmarket maiden winner HIDDENDALE has a bay filly by DUTCH ART while the other foaling boarder was NORDHOCK, half-sister to MASTERCRAFTSMAN, who has a grey colt by DANSILI and now goes to OASIS DREAM.

23rd February 2012

a further eight more arrivals

February has seen a further eight more arrivals at Lanwades, three colts and five fillies. Among the colts we have two by ARCHIPENKO and one by SIR PERCY. Top of the bill arrival at Lanwades has to be a grey colt for 1998 World Champion middle distance filly and dual Gr.1 Champion Stakes scorer ALBORADA by ARCHIPENKO. A colt also for ALIZADORA, a juvenile winning grand-daughter of the great ALRUCCABA, a third foal for her and this time by SIR PERCY. Her first foal is a now two-year-old by WITH APPROVAL named ALZAVOLA and is in training with Sir Mark Prescott. ALIZADORA remains at Lanwades to re-visit SELKIRK with whom she has a yearling colt. The final colt is another by ARCHIPENKO and is a fifth foal for EMINENCIA, an unraced daughter of dual Group 1 winner MY EMMA following on from a filly by the same sire last year which has already been named ARCHDUCHESS.

Now for the fillies - two more fillies for long-time Lanwades friend and client Mr John Pearce’s half sisters MISS CAP FERRAT and MISS PROVENCE. The first is a bay by INVINCIBLE SPIRIT out of MISS CAP FERRAT, a daughter of DARSHAAN and the dam of stakes winner ST JEAN CAP FERRAT. The second is a grey by VERGLAS for MISS PROVENCE a winning HERNANDO full-sister to Stakes winners MISS CORNICHE and MISS RIVIERA GOLF, who both form part of Mr Pearce’s boarding broodmare band of six and who have both already foaled this year; MISS RIVIERA GOLF has a filly by SEA THE STARS and MISS CORNICHE has a filly by PIVOTAL.

The remaining three fillies are all Lanwades-bred; mother and daughter SUMMER NIGHT and SOURIRE produced daughters on consecutive days. The latter, one of her dam’s four stakes winners, has a bay HERNANDO half-sister to last year’s second foal a filly by NAYEF already named STILLA AFTON. Her first foal is a now two-year-old colt in training with Simon Dow by ANABAA which was sold by Staffordstown at the 2011 Tattersalls October Yearling Sales. SOURIRE remains at Lanwades to return to HERNANDO this year. Her dam produced a bay filly by ARCHIPENKO, her eleventh foal in twelve years. Of these the first six are all winners and she has a two-year-old by SMART STRIKE named SAGESSE who is in training with Sir Mark Prescott and yearling filly by OASIS DREAM who has already been named SUNSET SHORE.

Finally DIABLERETTE, a winning three-quarter sister to 2010 Group 1 winner LADY JANE DIGBY and multiple Group and Graded scorer GATEMAN, has a SIR PERCY bay filly fifth foal. She follows a colt by ARCHIPENKO born last year, a now two-year-old filly by VERGLAS named MME SANS GENE and who is in training with Ralph Beckett and a pair of SELKIRK's - ECOSSAISE, a winner this year, and RAINBOW GOLD, a three-year-old colt, both of which have been or are in training with LADY JANE's and GATEMAN's trainer Mark Johnston. ECOSSAISE is still owned by Lanwades and RAINBOW GOLD was purchased by Mark Johnston Racing at the Tattersalls December Yearling Sales in 2010. DIABLERETTE returns to ARCHIPENKO this year.

22nd February 2012

an impressive debut win for son of alado

ALADO, the unraced DANZIG stallion son of dual Champion Stakes winner and World Champion three-year-old filly, ALBORADA, today had an impressive debut winner in two-year-old colt HALF MOON HOTEL at Cape Town beating a field of 15 runners. HALF MOON HOTEL is trained by Vaughan Marshall for owner-breeder Kirsten Rausing; the duo also have three-year-old NORTHERN CONQUEST, another son of ALADO, who has won 4 races this year. ALADO stands at Arc-En-Ciel Stud in the Cape Province, South Africa.

15th February 2012


Lanwades and Staffordstown Studs have agreed to extend their support of the Curragh Racecourse by supporting the Gr.3 Lanwades Stud Stakes on Sunday 26th August for fillies and mares aged three-year-old and upwards over nine furlongs, in addition to the Listed Staffordstown Stud Fillies Stakes for two-year-olds, which takes place at the finale of the Curragh season on Sunday 14th October. 

Lanwades Stud is home to AUSSIE RULES, HERNANDO and SELKIRK, together with Gr.1 Dewhurst Stakes and Gr.1 Derby winner SIR PERCY and Gr.1 winner ARCHIPENKO, while Staffordstown Stud in County Meath has been responsible for rearing top class performers including ALBORADA, ALBANOVA and LADY JANE DIGBY. 

Kirsten Rausing said: “I am delighted to be able to support Irish racing and breeding in this way.  Having lived and worked in Ireland myself, I particularly appreciate the opportunity to have raised our yearlings on the excellent land at Staffordstown in Co. Meath for the last 20 years.”

Evan Arkwright commented: “We are very grateful for the additional support from Kirsten Rausing and all her team at Lanwades and Staffordstown Studs, which will help us continue to boost the quality and competitiveness of our races for fillies and mares.”

Lanwades also sponsors the Denny Cordell Lavarack Memorial and Lanwades Stud Fillies Stakes (Gr.3) at Gowran Park, Ireland; the Lanwades Stud Nell Gwyn Stakes (Gr.3) at Newmarket; the Lanwades Stud Scandinavian Open Championship (Gr.3) at Klampenborg, Copenhagen as well as the Lanwades Stud Jagersro Sprint (Listed) at Jagersro, Malmo, Sweden; Margareta Wettermarks Memorial (Listed) at Jagersro; the Lanwades Stud Stakes (Listed) at Taby, Sweden and the Premio Buontalenta Lanwades Stud (Listed) at Capannelle, Italy.

10th February 2012


Three further arrivals have brought the 2012 foal tally to 17 so far. RAINBOW QUEST mare SALINIA has a first foal bay colt by CAMACHO. The British Bloodstock Agency-owned mare is a half sister to 2011 French Derby winner RELIABLE MAN, both out of Listed winner ON FAIR STAGE, herself a daughter of triple Oaks winner - Epsom, Curragh, York - FAIR SALINIA. SALINIA will now visit DANSILI.

The other two new foals are bay fillies out of Lanwades mares NINOTCHKA and MARIA DI  SCOZIA. The beautifully-bred NINOTCHKA, already dam of three winning daughters including stakes placed pair NADESZHDA and NATALIYA, has an ARCHIPENKO daughter, a filly linebred to SPECIAL who is great-granddam of her mother and granddam of her sire. NINOTCHKA is returning to ARCHIPENKO - makes sense! The other filly is a second foal for MARIA DI SCOZIA and is from the first crop of the impeccably-bred DANZIG horse MAWATHEEQ. MARIA DI SCOZIA, who also visits ARCHIPENKO, is a granddaughter of Italian Horse of the Year MARIA WALESKA, dam of Champion sprinter POLISH PATRIOT (by DANZIG) and granddam of Lanwades' 2010 Gr.1 winning homebred LADY JANE DIGBY (by DANZIG's grandson, OASIS DREAM) as well as multiple Gr.3 winner GATEMAN (by another grandson of DANZIG, OWINGTON).


The first six days of February brought seven further foals - three in one day, two bred by long-time Lanwades friend and client Mr John Pearce.

Listed winning full-sisters MISS CORNICHE and MISS RIVIERA GOLF, both by Lanwades' sire HERNANDO foaled fillies within three days of each other for Mr Pearce. The former has a chesnut by PIVOTAL, a half-sister to three winners (three of the mare's first four produce) including 2011 Ebor Handicap winner MOYENNE CORNICHE himself by SELKIRK. She visits GALILEO, sire of her as yet unraced 2009 colt ITALIAN RIVIERA. Her elder sister, winner of a Listed mile race at Maisons-Laffitte and dam already of six winners, has a bay by 2010 World Champion SEA THE STARS; she too is headed to Ireland, returning to MONTJEU, sire of her 2011 two-year-old winning son GASSIN GOLF.

Among the five Lanwades-owned arrivals are two second crop sons and one daughter of ARCHIPENKO.  The fillies are out of HERMANITA and WEATHER REPORT. HERMANITA's is her first daughter after three straight colts. A winning daughter by HERNANDO out of the stakes winning SECRETARIAT mare SUBJECTIVE, she now visits SIR PERCY, sire of her third colt, who realised 34,000 guineas at last year's Tattersalls December Foal Sale. WEATHER REPORT (an unraced daughter of dual Oaks winner RAMRUMA) for whom this was a third foal in as many years after a filly by SELKIRK and a colt by HERNANDO, once again will remain at Lanwades, revisiting ARCHIPENKO. The third foal by that sire born this week is a bay son of ALRUCCABA's great-grandaughter ALL A DREAM, who will also remain at the farm, to be covered by ALRUCCABA's grandson, new horse AUSSIE RULES.  Incidentally ALL A DREAM's now two-year-old daughter ALL BLACK ROSE (by Lanwades' sire VITA ROSA) is in training with John Gosden in Newmarket.

The remaining two mares to produce early February foals will both also stay put to be covered by a Lanwades sire. ALTITUDE, a winning daughter of GREEN DESERT and Broodmare of the Year ALOUETTE, will visit SELKIRK after producing a bay/grey filly by GALILEO, this follows a 2010 grey filly by the same sire who made €300,000 when sold by Staffordstown last year and is now in training with Sir Henry Cecil for Sir Robert Ogden.

And SADLER'S WELLS' daughter KESARA will go to ARCHIPENKO, having foaled a bay colt by SELKIRK which is a close relative to that horse's dual Group 1 winning Italian Champion son ALTIERI, a half-brother to KESARA's dam KALDOUNYA.


The first two foals of the season arrived on 23rd January, and by month's end the tally was seven, three of them on the 31st.

The initial two arrivals were both to boarding mares. Poonawalla Stud Farm's TOUCH MY SOUL has a bay colt by STREET CRY. This is a second foal for the German Gr.3 winner after her 2011 filly by KITTEN'S JOY.

Chris and Lesley Mills' MIDNIGHT FANTASY produced a filly (her first foal) by ACCLAMATION on the same night. A three-time winner by OASIS DREAM, MIDNIGHT FANTASY is half-sister to the Mills' Group winning sprinter MISS ANABAA; she now visits ACCLAMATION’s son EQUIANO. Before the month was out MISS ANABAA had produced her own ACCLAMATION foal, a bay colt who is his dam's sixth living foal. Last year MISS ANABAA bred three-year-old winner EMKANAAT and sold her RAVEN'S PASS filly foal for 52,000 guineas. She returns to ACCLAMATION.

The first Lanwades-bred foal was also the first produce of Gr.1 winner, LADY JANE DIGBY. A seven-time winner whose career peaked with a German Gr.1 success in 2010, LADY JANE DIGBY had a chesnut colt by leading sire DUBAWI and now visits an even more successful current stallion in GALILEO.

The DUBAWI colt's arrival was followed by a first foal for a daughter of GALILEO in ALMIRANTA, herself the first foal of stakes winner ALVARITA, the product of two champions in SELKIRK and ALBORADA. ALMIRANTA had a bay filly by INVINCIBLE SPIRIT and stays at Lanwades to be covered by SIR PERCY, sire of the mare's very promising now three-year-old half-sister ALLA SPERANZA (in training with J S Bolger in Ireland - this filly was a stakes-placed winner in 2 starts at 2 in Ireland).

Then ALMIRANTA’s close relative ALTA MODA, an unraced daughter of SADLER'S WELLS and ALBORADA, produced a bay colt by ARCHIPENKO, her third foal and third colt. ALTA MODA joins LADY JANE DIGBY in travelling to Ireland to visit a big name horse, in her case World Champion SEA THE STARS.

The last foal of January, and fourth of the Lanwades-bred arrivals, was a bay filly by our new sire for 2012 AUSSIE RULES out of Brazilian Gr.3 winner THUNDER QUEEN. The dam already of two winners, THUNDER QUEEN is another staying at Lanwades, in her case to visit ARCHIPENKO.

3rd February 2012


Lanwades stallion SIR PERCY had some great sales results at this week’s New Zealand’s Karaka Select Yearling Sales to end up the Leading First Season Sire there - with eight yearlings sold for an average of NZ$49,625 with top prices of NZ$120,000 for a colt and NZ$82,500 for a filly.  The Karaka Select Yearling Sales is a three day sale which ran from 1st February through to 3rd February. 

The week before New Zealand Karaka hosted its Premier Yearling Sale where Queensland agent John Foote paid the top price of the week for a SIR PERCY yearling when a bay colt out of STAR PARADE was knocked down to him for NZ$150,000.  Incidentally this colt was consigned by Rich Hill Stud where SIR PERCY has stood for the last three Southern Hemisphere seasons.  Also at this sale a SIR PERCY filly was sold for NZ130,000 from Curraghmore Stud.

Of course back in Europe in 2011 SIR PERCY ended the year as the UK’s Leading Second Crop Sales Sire with his yearlings selling at the major UK and Irish Yearlings Sales averaging 43,679gns and with a top price of 260,000 gns for a colt out of Mr and Mrs Pakenham’s mare BOMBAZINE.

SIR PERCY made an excellent start when his first crop European yearlings sold in 2010 made 80,000gns, 78,000gns, 72,000gns, etc, and averaged four times his 2008 nomination fee.

30th January 2012


Lanwades have had a great start to 2012 with three runners in the green and white colours and three winners.  First winner of the year came on 2nd January when NORTHERN CONQUEST, a three-year-old gelding by ALADO, won at Kenilworth and followed up with another win on 28th January.  His latest and fourth win came on one of biggest race days in South Africa, the J & B Met Day!  It was a strong 1600 metre handicap and he will now be campaigned at a higher level.  NORTHERN CONQUEST was purchased by Allan Bloodlines from his breeder Klawervlei Stud and managed for Miss Rausing within the support programme for her stallion ALADO.  The second winner of the year is ECOSSIASE (a four-year-old filly by SELKIRK) who won her maiden over a mile at Southwell on 10th January.  ECOSSAISE is being sold at the Tattersalls February Sale on Thursday, 2nd February (please see below).   The latest winner is NEZHENKA (a five year old mare by WITH APPROVAL) who won her second race of her career, a decent handicap at Wolverhampton by two and a quarter lengths on 27th January.

20th January 2012

Opportunity to purchase winning SELKIRK filly with Gr.1 connections

Ecossaise The winning four-year-old filly ECOSSAISE (by Selkirk - Diablerette, by Green Desert - Scandalette, by Niniski - Maria Waleska) is being sold by Lanwades at Tattersalls February Sales, Newmarket, on 2nd February (lot number 200) - click here to view catalogue page.

The filly whose winning run was over 1 mile (1600m) on 10th January at Southwell is sold IN TRAINING, with a Breeding Certificate, from Mark Johnston's Kingsley House Stables where she can also be inspected by appointment prior to the Sales.

Her sire, SELKIRK, was Champion Miler of Europe at both 3 and 4 years. He is Internationally recognized as one of the Leading Sires of the last twenty years, being to date the sire of fourteen individual Group One winners; the winners of over 1475 races and very nearly £30 million.

SELKIRK is now also emerging as a very important broodmare sire. His daughters have to date produced 14 Group winners incl. MOUNT NELSON (Gr.1), QUIFF (Gr.1), SIMPLY PERFECT (Gr.1), TERMAGANT (Gr.1), etc.

ECOSSAISE is the first produce of her dam, DIABLERETTE, herself a winner at two years. The dam also has a now three-year-old colt (RAINBOW GOLD, by Selkirk) in training with Mark Johnston and a two-year-old filly, MME SANS GENE (by Verglas), retained by Lanwades and in training with Ralph Beckett. There is also a 2011 colt by ARCHIPENKO and DIABLERETTE is due to foal to Champion two-year-old and Derby winner SIR PERCY prior to returning to ARCHIPENKO this year.

Lanwades currently has SEVEN mares from ECOSSAISE's immediate family in their broodmare band, including Group 1 winner LADY JANE DIGBY who is due to DUBAWI and scheduled to visit GALILEO this year.

Three two-year-old fillies currently in training complete the family group:
DAME NELLIE MELBA (Aussie Rules - Scandalette), with Mark Johnston; MARIELLA (Piccolo - Viva Maria), with Peter Chapple-Hyam, and the above-mentioned MME SANS GENE (Verglas - Diablerette) with Ralph Beckett.

This family stems from the great Champion racemare and Horse-of-the-Year in Italy, MARIA WALESKA (dual Gr.1 winner, dual Classic winner), herself dam of the European Champion Sprinter, POLISH PATRIOT.
ECOSSAISE will provide her eventual purchaser with an exceptional opportunity to breed from a daughter of a most important broodmare sire, from a very "live" family with plenty of potential for further Black Type additions.

Interestingly, both SELKIRK daughters and MARIA WALESKA, her daughters and granddaughters, have repeatedly shown excellent results when mated with DANZIG and his descendants.

Also selling at Tattersalls February Sale is chesnut colt by SIR PERCY ex ROSA DE MI CORAZON – lot number 107 – please click here for catalogue page and further details.

16th January 2012


Champion two-year-old and Derby winner SIR PERCY has just returned to Lanwades Stud after successfully concluding his third Southern Hemisphere season at Rich Hill Stud in New Zealand.

"We are of course delighted to have SIR PERCY back with us at Lanwades" said Kirsten Rausing, Owner and General Manager of Lanwades. "SIR PERCY made an immediate impact with his first crop of two-year-olds racing in 2011. Their success made for tremendous yearling sales results and therefore it is not surprising that he is booked full for the 2012 season."

Nominations are still available to Lanwades other exciting young sires ARCHIPENKO (who has his first yearlings this year) and AUSSIE RULES (a leading European second crop sire in 2011).

Lanwades operates a Limited Books policy with all its stallions.

A win for lanwades selkirk filly

Lanwades-bred filly ECOSSAISE who was in the frame on five separate occasions last year finally got off the mark winning a maiden over a mile at Southwell yesterday.  By SELKIRK, and now a four-year-old ECOSSAISE is the first foal of Lanwades-bred juvenile winner DIABLERETTE who was trained like her daughter by Mark Johnston.  DIABLERETTE is a half sister to German Group 1 winner LADY JANE DIGBY and multiple Group winner GATEMAN.  She is a GREEN DESERT mare out of Lanwades-bred SCANDALETTE (the dam of eight winners and is half sister to nine winners including Group 1 winner POLISH PATRIOT).  DIABLERETTE has a now three-year-old RAINBOW GOLD also in training with Mark Johnston and who ran once at two, a two-year-old filly by VERGLAS named MME SANS GENE and a yearling colt by ARCHIPENKO.

Northern ConquestNORTHERN CONQUEST, a three year old gelding by ALADO, won his third race of his career at Kenilworth yesterday. The Vaughan Marshall trained son was bred by Klawervlei Stud then selected and purchased by Allan Bloodlines for the ALADO support programme operated by David Allan under the authority of owner/breeder Miss Kirsten Rausing. NORTHERN CONQUEST is now a winner of three races and five times placed in eleven starts. The three unplaced runs were all fifth, all two to three lengths off the winner and two were in Grade 3/Listed class at 2. His sire ALADO is by multiple Champion sire DANZIG out of Lanwades-bred World Champion Racemare ALBORADA and stands at Arc-En-Ciel Stud (Craig and Amanda Carey) in the Western Cape, South Africa. This season ALADO has NORTHERN CONQUEST as well as five times winner ED’S ANGEL and several placed runners waiting to win all going well and a number of recent or imminent debutant(e)s.
