Wings Of Desire fly’s home in the Dante.

Owner/Breeder - Lady Bamford

Trainer - J. Gosden

Wings Of Desire showed vastly improved form when he took the Group 2 Betfred Dante Stakes in some style at York. After making his racecourse debut just 29 days prior to this, the Pivotal colt showed a great attitude and ability to charge down the outside and win this prestigious prize well.

This win promoted him to Derby favouritism and he looks a most exciting prospect.


Ashadihan realises potential.

Owner - T. A. Rahman

Breeder - Highbank Stud Ltd.

Trainer - K. Ryan

The Kyllachy filly Ashadihan showed a rare turn of foot when winning the Group 3 Chartwell Fillies’ Stakes at Lingfield. Showing real potetntial as a juvenile from limited starts, this Kevin Ryan trained filly sat in the rear of this open contest and burst through inside the final furlong to win well. She has more to give and remains a filly of real promise.


Zonderland realising potential.

The Cheveley Park Stud homebred colt Zonderland, won the Betvictor Heron Stakes at Sandown. Sat just behind the leader early, he quickened nicely to win well in a good renewal of this Listed race. By Dutch Art, the strapping Zonderland started the season with a sixth place finish in the 2000 Guineas but fell down the hill at Newmarket and couldn’t produce his good turn of foot.


Global Applause is putting his sire Mayson on the map.

Owner - Dr. Johnny Hon

Breeder - Robin & Scarlet Knipe.

Trainer - Ed Dunlop

Global Applause won the Betvictor National Stakes at Sandown thus becoming the first Stakes winner for the freshman sire Mayson. He was always to the fore in this 5 furlong Listed event of juveniles and stayed on to win well.

Next stop could well be the Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot.


Don’t Touch claims first Listed victory.

Owners - Nicholas Wrigley & Kevin Hart

Breeder - Cheveley Park Stud

Trainer - R. Fahey

After an under par run last time, Don’t Touch bounced right back to form when winning his first Black type race. The Cathedral Stakes at Salisbury was a Listed race only in name and looked a much more competitive event. The Richard Fahey trained sat just behind the pace taking up the running inside the final furlong and won in most taking in fashion. By Dutch Art, he is proving to be a very tough horse who could well be running in the July Cup next time.

Kyllachy has another good filly.

Owner/Breeder - Scuderia Blueberry

Trainer - S. Botti

Mujadil Lachy by the Cheveley Park Stud stalwart Kyllachy, made it two from two with a comprehensive win in the Listed Premio Vittorio Crespi at the San Siro racecourse in Milan. Ridden from just off the pace she won this juvenile 6 furlong event without fuss and looks to have a bright future.


Another Group 1 win for Twilight Son.

Owner - Godfrey Wilson & Cheveley Park Stud

Breeder - Mrs C. R. D. Wilson

Trainer - Henry Candy

In what was one of the most memorable races of Royal Ascot 2106, Twilight Son got his head in front of a blanket finish for the prestigious Group 1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes. The race, run in slow early fractions, turned into literally a sprint to the line where many had chances but the son of Kyllachy wanted it more and stuck his head out for a courageous win. Jockey Ryan Moore reported that Twilight Son ‘travelled very strongly and I always felt when I asked him he would go and win’. He added ‘When I rode him last year he felt like a very good horse and he had obviously taken a while to come to hand this year, but Mr. Candy was very confident about him. He’s done little wrong and the pace wasn’t strong enough for him - he’d be better if they were going quicker’.

This was the colts second win in Group 1 company and will now go on and compete in the Darley July Cup at Newmarket in July.

This completed a very satisfactory couple of days for the Cheveley Park Stud stalwart Kyllachy, whose 3yo son Kachy, was an unlucky loser in the  Commonwealth  Cup  (Group 1) at Royal Ascot. He was only beaten one length and would have been much closer had he not veered across the track. His time will come.


Noble Born becomes Mayson’ s 7th individual winner.

Owner/Breeder - Cheveley Park Stud

Trainer - J. Gosden

After a highly promising debut run at Newmarket 13 days ago, The Cheveley Park Stud homebred colt Nobly Born, duly won at Yarmouth showing a good turn of foot. By the leading First Crop sire, this Mayson colt is going the right way and should continue to progress with racing.


Brando wins his first black type race..

Owner - Mrs Angie Bailey

Breeder - Car Colston Hall Stud

Trainer - Kevin Ryan

Brando has made his way up in the handicap ranks and finished a very creditable runner up in the Wokingham Handicap at Royal Ascot last time out. Favourite for the Group 3 Coral Charge at Sandown, his first effort at black type, saw this son of Pivotal show good pace throughout to win over the minimum trip. He keeps improving and is a horse to keep an eye on.


Dimension wins another Grade 2 at Woodbine.

Owner - Riverside Bloodstock

Breeder - Cheveley Park Stud

Trainer - Conor Murphy

Dimension won his third Grade 2 event when taking the King Edward Stakes on a fast turf track at Woodbine. Taking his time early on, the son of Medicean showed his customary turn of foot down the stretch to win cosily at the line.


Barleysugar wins on American debut.

Owner - Red Baron’s Barn &Rancho Temescal

Breeder - Mrs James Wigan

Trainer - E. Freeman

The ex Sir Michael Stoute trained Barleysugar won on her U.S. Debut when taking the Listed Sandy Blue Handicap at Del Mar. Stalking the early pace the daughter of Kyllachy made ground two furlongs from home and readily won this first venture into Stakes company. She could well continue to progress.


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.


Lethal Force yearlings in demand at Goffs Uk sales.

Lethal Force’s first crop of yearlings have been in big demand this week at the newly titled Goffs UK sales at Doncaster. Many of the progeny look very racy and have made up to £102,000, with buyers such as Peter & Ross Doyle, Ger Lyons, Mark Johnson, Bryan Smart, Highfield Farm and Eve Johnson Houghton signing the tickets.

It looks very exciting as his sire Dark Angel continually going from strength to strength.


Alignement becomes Pivotal ‘s latest Stakes winner.

Owner /Breeder - Wertheimer et Frere

Trainer - Carlos Laffon-Parias

Alignement appreciated the step up in trip to 9 furlongs when winning the Listed Prix Pelleas at Clairfontaine. He quickened up nicely to win his fourth race and first Stakes race.

This son of Pivotal looks most progressive.


Zonderland wins first Group race at Salisbury.

Owner/Breeder - Cheveley Park Stud

Trainer - C Cox

The good looking Zonderland is really progressing now and took his first Group prize with authority here. Sat just behind the pace, he quickened up really well to win the Group 3 Sovereign Stakes with a bit of style only idling close home.

This son of Dutch Art is something to look forward to for the remainder of the year and 2017.


Dutch Connection readily wins the Lennox stakes.

Owner - Godolphin

Breeder - Mrs P. Roy

Trainer - Charlie Hills

Back on his favoured fast ground, Dutch Connection showed his explosive turn of foot to land the Gr.2 Lennox Stakes at Goodwood. Travelling nicely just in behind if was soon evident that he was going to win with something to spare.

This son of Dutch Art will be winning at the level again very shortly.


Arthenus becomes latest Dutch Art Stakes winner

Owners - A. Coombs & J. W. Rowley

Breeder - Brook Stud Bloodstock

Trainer - James Fanshawe

Following up from a Group 2 place last time, Arthenus returned to France to land the Listed Prix de Boulogne at Saint-Cloud a shade cosily. The son of Dutch Art was restrained early but came with a steady run to take up the lead inside the final furlong and won a shade cosily.


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.


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.
