There was plenty to cheer about at the Taylor family’s historic Trelawney Stud this week with the 3yo colt In Swoop (Adlerflug), a half-brother to Trelawney’s Group Three winning Galileo mare Igraine (GER), running the race of his life to be narrowly beaten in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.
Then Fastnet Rock’s daughter One Master conquers the G.r1 Prix de la Foret for an unprecedented third time.
Why was that significant?
Well three weeks back, Igraine (GER) had her first foal, a gorgeous Fastnet Rock filly born at Segenhoe Stud.
Igraine was an inspired 65,000 guineas purchase by Paul Moroney on the Taylors' behalf at the 2017 Tattersalls Broodmare Sale.
The 4yo mare had one win and two Listed placings in Germany but would build on that in Australia and New Zealand, winning the Gr.2 Counties Cup and Listed Caloundra Cup while banking over $300,000.
The lightly raced In Swoop (IRE) has been in fine form this year. He won the Gr.1 Deutsches Derby in July and prepped for the Arc with a second to Mogul in the Gr.1 Grand Prix de Paris over the Arc course and distance on September 13.
In Swoop and Igraine are out of the Gr.1 Preis der Diana (German Oaks) winner Iota, a daughter of Danehill’s former shuttler Tiger Hill, who had already produced the Gr.1 Grosser Preis von Bayern winner Ito, a full brother to In Swoop, who was honoured as the Champion Older Horse in Germany in 2015 (Long). -breednet.com.au
