Lightning Spear shows his true colours winning the Celebration Mile.


Owner - Qatar Racing Ltd.

Breeder - Newsells Park Stud

Trainer - David Simcock

Sitting off the pace the handsome looking 5yo Lightning Spear stalked the leaders before being brought with a decisive run inside the final furlong to win the Celebration Mile (Gr.2) at Goodwood. This son of Pivotal has always threatened to be a useful sort but has taken time to find his real strength but should now become one of the main milers around.


The Cheveley Park Stud’s Zonderland ran another race of credit when he finished second in the prestigous prize. The son of Dutch Art is improving with every race and will be a real force next year when he gets his full strength.


Another 5yo son of Pivotal has also improved to win a good race on the same card at Goodwood, when the Cheveley Park Stud homebred Certificate won the Heritage Revival Handicap Stakes. Always close up, Roger Varian’s charge was the likely winner from a long way out and will now no doubt contest pattern races.

Rosie Briar becomes another Stakes winner for Mayson.


Owner / Breeder - Dr. J. Hobby

Trainer - A. Balding


Sitting just off the pace, Rosie Briar quickened up nicely to land the Listed Doncaster Stakes at Doncaster. In only her third start this daughter of Mayson showed good speed and should continue to go the right way.


This is Mayson’s seventh black type performer from his first crop.



Another milestone was achieved when Gabridan became the 100th individual winner of the season for the Cheveley Park Stud stalwart Kyllachy, when winning at Chelmsford City.

Twilight Son to retire to Cheveley Park Stud in 2017.


Cheveley Park Stud are delighted to announce that the dual Group 1 winning sprinter, TWILIGHT SON, has retired from racing and will take up stallion duties at Cheveley Park Stud in 2017, where he will stand alongside his sire Kyllachy, as well as Dutch Art, Garswood, Lethal Force, Mayson, Medicean and Pivotal.    

Trained by Henry Candy, TWILIGHT SON was unbeaten in his first five starts which culminated in an impressive victory, in what was his first run at Group level, in the Group 1 Sprint Cup at Haydock, in doing so he beat the previous Group 1 winners Belardo, G Force, Tiggy Wiggy and Gordon Lord Byron. His first taste of defeat came on his next outing when finishing a highly creditable second to Muhaarar, in the Group 1 QIPCO British Champions Sprint Stakes. His finest hour this year came when battling to victory in the Group 1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot, where he yet again displayed a willing and tenacious attitude to get the better of Group 1 winners The Tin Man, Signs Of Blessing and Undrafted in a driving finish.         

Bred by Mrs Caroline Wilson, TWILIGHT SON is by Cheveley Park Stud resident KYLLACHY, who is enjoying another fine season on the track with his progeny, having already had over 100 individual winners. He is out of the winning mare TWILIGHT MISTRESS, and half brother to the classy Group 3 winning and Group 1 placed sprinter MUSIC MASTER.

Cheveley Park Stud Managing Director, Chris Richardson, said; ““Twilight Son is a hugely talented, beautifully bred, imposing individual, very like his sire Kyllachy, who I feel offers both commercial and owner breeders, a very exciting opportunity for their mares.  The addition of Twilight Son, further enhances the portfolio of stallions, currently standing at Cheveley Park Stud and continues to reflect David and Patricia Thompson’s huge commitment to the international world of racing and breeding.  We are most grateful to have been involved with Twilight Son’s breeders, Caroline and Godfrey Wilson, and of course to have been re-associated with trainer Henry Candy, who has done a fantastic job guiding Twilight Son throughout his highly successful career”.   

Trainer Henry Candy commented; “Twilight Son was a pleasure to train.  He was a very relaxed horse.  He never took a lame step and never left an oat.”

A fee for TWILIGHT SON will be announced at a later date.

Private Matter becomes the third Stakes winner for Mayson


Owner / Breeder - Cheveley Park Stud

Trainer - Richard Fahey


Mayson continues to scale the stallion ranks after his son Private Matter won the Listed Prix Zeddaan at Maisons Laffitte today.


Sitting just off the lead early on he quickened up with 2 furlongs to go and never looked like being caught. He is a progressive sort and should continue to do well.


This is Mayson’s third Stakes winner and the second one this week. Only Frankel from the First crop stallions list has sired more, with four.

Cheveley Park Stud’s Frankel colt sells for 1.300,000gns at Tattersalls Book 1


On an exciting day at the nearby Tattersalls Sales, Cheveley Park Stud broke their own record when a Frankel colt out of our Group 1 winning mare Peeress sold for 1,300,000gns. It was purchased by M.V. Magnier, Mayfair & P & R Doyle. This was more that double the price that we have sold for any other yearling before.
