The last mare is covered and the stud season is nearly over
This is Sogno Verde's Galileo colt, now one month old.

The 2015 stud season is coming to a close. Our last mare was covered last week and so there are only a few pregnancy scans to be done. Let us hope that the remaining two mares are both pregnant! To date we have only one mare empty and this is Third Dimension. She always carries the full year and so it is inevitable that she takes a rest after two or three foals. This year she has a two year old Arcano colt to run for her as well as the old stalwarts Orgilgo Bay and Third Intention. Her Lope de Vega colt will go to the Yearling Sales consigned by Grove Stud who purchased him from us at Goffs last year.  Third Dimension's daughter Theola has this stunning colt (below) by Cape Cross, sire of Derby favourites Golden Horn (Epsom) and Karpino (German), as well as of Sea the Stars and Ouija Bord dam of first-season sire Australia.

Who are you? Out together for the first time: Theola colt (lelft), Third Dimension with Epaulette filly and Galileo and Cape Cross colts (right).

The German visitors are ready to go home.

This beautiful colt above is by Invincible Spirit out of Kahara (by Sadlers Wells). This makes him a three parts brother to Karpino, currently favourite for ther German Derby. The Shamardal filly  pictured top right and middle is the first foal out of black type winner Path Wind (by Anabaa). Both mares are owned by Gestuet Faehrhof and are in foal to Sea the Stars.
