Late foaling no barrier to success 31/03/08

Breeders with mares due to foal in April or later still have time to book in to any of the stallions we have standing here at Overbury Stud.

As you may have noticed, Kayf Tara has had a marvellous season in the jumping division, despite that the fact that members of his first crop are still only six-year-olds. He is the sire of G1 runner-up and G2 winner Venalmar and Stakes winners Mad Max, Carruthers and Give It Time. While we have had plenty of interest in him, both in the UK and in Ireland, he’s  a very fertile horse and we hope to be in a position to consider late additions to his book.

Our two Champion milers have been well supported in their first few seasons at stud. We’re very much looking forward to Zafeen’s first yearlings appearing at the sales this autumn. Standing for £3,000 (Oct 1, Special Live Foal), his first foals made up to £78,000 and averaged almost five times his fee. There’s every reason to believe his yearlings will be equally sought after: don’t forget Zafeen was a G1 class juvenile himself, who was runner-up in the Prix Morny before becoming the Champion miler of his generation at three.

G1 Sussex Stakes winner Proclamation, who finished his three-year-old season with a superior rating to Classic winners Shamardal, Dubawi and Footstepsinthesand, now has his first foals on the ground. His 1 May foaling date didn’t prevent him winning first time out at two!

Indeed, all our stallions are the products of late coverings: Kayf Tara was conceived in late April and Zafeen in late May. And they’re not the only ones. The great Northern Dancer wasn’t foaled until 27 May, while Classic winners Dylan Thomas and Alexandrova share a birthday of 23 April and 1000 Guineas winners Wince, Speciosa and Shahtoush were also all born in the last week of April.

If your mare is yet to foal this season, please don’t hesitate to contact us to book a nomination or to discuss your options.
