TWILIGHT SON, dual Group 1 winner and leading sprinter of 2016, has taken to stallion duties extremely well, and has not surprisingly, been strongly supported in his first season at stud. As part of Cheveley Park Stud’s policy of supporting its own stallions, TWILIGHT SON has been patronised by a selection of mares from the stud’s high quality broodmare band, as well as by many other leading European breeders.
Cheveley Park Stud Managing Director, Chris Richardson said; ‘I am delighted Twilight Son has started the stud season so promisingly, having had the first three mares bred to him, scanned in foal. Having impressed at the highest level as a racehorse, Twilight Son continues to be the ultimate professional. In this competitive business, we are very grateful to our friends and breeders for their support and we, like them, are excited by the potential he offers the breeding and racing industry in the future’.
Mares visiting TWILIGHT SON in 2017 include the dams of Stakes’ winners Sole Power, Penitent, Tariq, Aetna and Supplicant. He is also set to cover the Stakes’ winners Soar, Firenze, and Geesala.
