Champs Elysess winning a G1 in Canada this weekend makes Hasili the dam of 5 G1 winners, joining Eight Carat as the only other to ever do so.
 
More remarkable is that of the 5, Danehill sired 4 of them; Intercontinental, Banks Hill & Cacique prior to Champs Elysees. The other G1 half brother was Heat Haze. Can you believe the one who could have given her the record all to herself was Dansili, who is now an outstanding sire but could only muster G2 wins in his racing career.

Great achievement by Hasili. 

There was another Canadian mare No Class who had 6 G1 winners if Canadian races were counted.  Then consider one of those winners Classy 'n Smart (Champion 3yo in Canada & CanG1 ie Canadian Oaks.) produced Smart Strike who is an outstanding stallion.  You can see that one should never belittle a countries G1 races even when not official for the cataloguing system.
 
That little bit of Star Kingdom is still out there in the world kicking goals for the southern hemisphere.  When Star Kingdom was here we didn't have Group statis.  It didn't mean the races didn't deserve it.
 
When Australia and New Zealand could not afford to bring the best stallions to australasia we spent alot of the time importing 1/2 brothers, full brothers or sons of champions to these shores.  Could explain why our horses are better than the rest of the world expected.
 
Sorry got off track there.  Sometimes the best stallions are not always the best racehorses.  Those G2 wins often mean more than we give them credit for.

Flying the flag for Hasili again


Hasili's (pictured) most recent addition to the training ranks, Raise The Flag, could not be more perfectly named. The offspring of Juddmonte's incomparable broodmare have constantly hoisted the union flag over foreign soil and once again it flutters proudly in the USA, where Champs Elysees has added yet another Grade One victory to the record of this excellent family, writes Emma Berry.

The five-year-old's half-length win over Obrigado in the Hollywood Turf Cup Stakes on Saturday takes his own Stakes record to two at the highest level in North America this year - his other Grade One victory coming in the Northern Dancer Breeders' Cup Turf Stakes over the border at Woodbine - plus a score in the G2 San Marcos Stakes and last year's win in the G3 Prix d'Hedouville at Longchamp when still trained by Andre Fabre. Like his full siblings Intercontinental, Cacique and Banks Hill, and half-sister Heat Haze, Champs Elysees started life with France's master trainer before switching to an equally adept handler, the New Yorker Bobby Frankel. It is an arrangement that works well. Hasili's children have amassed 11 Group or Grade One wins between them - nine of which have been in the US or Canada. Only Banks Hill has secured top-flight wins in Europe, in the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot and the Prix Jacques le Marois at Deauville.

Among Hasili's six Stakes-winning offspring, only Dansili has no G1 tag next to his name, his best win coming in the G2 Prix Muguet as a four-year-old. He has, however, more than made up for this omission from his race record by becoming one of the hottest young sires in Europe. He stands alongside Cacique at Banstead Manor Stud in Newmarket and the brothers have recently been joined by Dansili's Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe winner Rail Link.

Dansili's daughter Price Tag won the G1 Matriarch Stakes in 2006 - a race which was plundered by the family three years in a row, his sisters Intercontinental and Heat Haze winning the previous renewals. Two of his sons, Rail Link and Zambezi Sun, have claimed the G1 Grand Prix de Paris and the British-trained Passage Of Time became his first juvenile Group One winner when landing the Criterium de Saint Cloud in 2006. Her success caused another banner to be raised, this time the coat of arms of her trainer Henry Cecil, whose custom it is to fly the flag above his Warren Place stables after each Group One win.

Not only does Fabre currently have Raise The Flag, Hasili's three-year-old son of Sadler's Wells, in his care but this season he has also trained Ideal World, a colt of the same age by Kingmambo out of Banks Hill. Ideal World has garnered black type for another subset of the family, winning the Listed Prix Pelleas at Compiegne before being nosed out by Prix du Jockey-Club winner Vision d'Etat in the G2 Prix Niel at Longchamp. Raise The Flag has not been so highly tried: just one run to date saw him finish sixth in a Longchamp condition race in April, but it is a family that improves with age as do the stock of his sire, so let's hope there's more to come from the colt.

Now 17, Hasili was a four-time winner herself, including landing the Listed Prix des Sablonnets, but it is through her outstanding produce record that her name has been well and truly etched into thoroughbred breeding folklore. Heat Haze is the only one of her Stakes winners not by Danehill, though she is by fellow Danzig stallion Green Desert. It is to this line that Hasili will return next year: her planned partner for 2009 is Green Desert's superb sprinting son Oasis Dream, whose mating with Hasili's full-sister Arrive resulted in the Group Three winner Visit, who continued the family's association with the Matriarch Stakes when running third to Cocoa Beach on 30 November.

In the interim, during a sojourn in the US she has visited Storm Cat, and has a yearling filly by the now pensioned doyen of the American stallion scene. Hasili was not covered in 2008 but has a filly foal on the ground by another of Prince Khalid Abdullah's homegrown stallions, Empire Maker. The 2003 Belmont Stakes winner is the product of Juddmonte's equally impressive matriarch, Toussaud, the dam of Stakes-winners Chester House, Honest Lady, Chiselling and Decarchy. The fusion of these two great families is truly a prospect to savour

Here is some trivia
No Class had a   sw 1/2 sister -Baraquillo- who left Chinquillo [Bletchingly]
who won a couple of stakes races and was GR1 placed in the Blue Diamond.
Chinquillo, aged 19,looks like a 3yo, has a gorgeous Towkay filly foal and is in foal to Darci Brahma.

Chingquillo was purchased last year by the world renowned judge Don Skelton for $14,000 when she was in foal to Towkay. Since I like Towkay and think Darci Brahma is among the best stallion prospects on either side of the Tasman, then Nod I hope you breed a champion. Love those old gals.

MUKARRAR, Who just scored in brilliant fashion at Geelong is by Redoutes Choice out of Back Pass.

This is of course the family of Hasili and Sharkbite.

Hasili’s sons are dominant


One of headline-makers at Tattersalls’ December Sale was the 2012 Cheveley Park Stakes victrix Rosdhu Queen, who was sold for 2.1 million guineas. She thus followed in the footsteps of the 2004 Cheveley Park winner Magical Romance in realising a seven-figure sum at a December Sale. Magical Romance (carrying her first foal, Pivotal filly now named Liel) set a European record for a broodmare sold at auction by fetching 4.6 million guineas at the 2006 December Sales (a record which stood until Immortal Verse was sold for 4.7 million guineas this year). She has thus far bred three minor winners, but none of her five runners has been good enough to contest a Group or Listed race. This must be off-putting for Rosdhu Queen’s new owners, but they can take better heart from the breeding records of numerous other Cheveley Park winners. The 2005 winner Donna Blini (bought by Katsumi Yoshida family for 500,000 guineas at the 2006 December Sale) is now the dam of 2012 Japanese Horse of the Year Gentildonna, who recently became the first horse to win two Japan Cups; while the 1977 winner Sookera also proved a great buy. Sookera won the Cheveley Park Stakes in Robert Sangster’s colours but after a few years at stud was bought from Sangster by Prince Khalid Abdullah, for whom she has established a notable dynasty. Her grand-daughter Hasili has proved a real blue hen for the prince’s Juddmonte operation: several of Hasili’s daughters have become stars and three of her sons (DansiliCacique and Champs Elysees) have joined the Juddmonte stallion roster. One of them (Dansili) was hotly tipped to sire a winner of one of Hong Kong’s big international races, but his daughter The Fugue could only finish second in the HK Vase – beaten by Cacique’s son Dominant, writes John Berry.

Sookera bred two notable colts for Juddmonte, the full-brothers So Factual and Bold Fact, sons of the prince’s 1980 2,000 Guineas winner Known Fact, whose greatest achievement at stud was breeding the prince’s outstanding miler Warning. So Factual matured into a top-class sprinter, winning the Group One Nunthorpe Stakes as a five-year-old in 1995. Bold Fact (who was born that year, when Sookera was aged 20) proved far more precocious but less progressive, his biggest victory coming in the July Stakes as at two-year-old at Newmarket’s July Meeting in 1997.

Of the fillies whom Sookera bred, the best was her second foal Field Dancer, a daughter of Habitat’s Northern Dancer half-brother Northfields. Sangster still owned Sookera at this stage, only selling her to Juddmonte later in her life. He retained Field Dancer and sent her to Dermot Weld, who had trained Sookera for him. Field Dancer did very well, winning several races including the Hardwicke Cup at Phoenix Park in Dublin and running an excellent fourth to Bella Colora in the Prix de l’Opera in Paris. She subsequently became a decent broodmare, as did her Godswalk half-sister Resooka (ancestress of such fast horses as Hawksley Hill andBenbaun). However, breeding Kerali for Juddmonte proved to be Sookera’s greatest achievement.

Born in 1984, Kerali was a daughter of the top-class Hyperion-line stallion High Line, one of the best sources of high-class stamina in England (and the world) at the time. Put into training with Prince Khalid Abdullah’s principal trainer Jeremy Tree, she won a seven-furlong maiden race at Kempton in 1987, but failed to progress from there. However, once she had retired to stud, she proved to be worth her weight in gold.

Kerali bred a few winners, but it was as a dam of dams, rather than as a dam of racehorses, that she really made her name. One of her daughters achieved her fame once she had been sold: her first foal Dissemble, a daughter of Ahonoora born in 1989, was sold to Brazil, where she bred the top-class galloper Leroidesanimaux, who is now famous as the sire of Animal Kingdom and who has recently moved to Lanwades Stud in England. The remainder, though, have done their sterling work for Juddmonte.

Kerali’s second foal Skiable, a daughter of the top-class staying stallion Niniski, ranks as the dam of the redoubtable Three Valleys, one of the toughest horses to have raced for Prince Khalid Abdullah as well as one of the best. Arrive, Kerali’s daughter of the 1988 Derby and Irish Derby winner Kahyasi born in 1998, has bred two stars for Juddmonte (Promising Leadand Visit). And Kid Gloves, her daughter of In The Wings born in 1999, has bred the Group/Grade Two winner Treat Gently. But it is Kerali’s third foal Hasili – a full-sister to Arrive, and very closely related to Skiable, with Niniski being a son of Nijinsky and Kahyasi a son of Nijinsky’s son Ile De Bourbon - who ranks as Kerali’s greatest achievement.

When considering Hasili’s story, it is food for thought that she was entered for the December Sale in 1993 as a two-year-old. She’d been a good juvenile, winning four races in France from Henri-Alex Pantall’s stable including a provincial Listed race at Nantes. She was clearly very saleable – but then she was clearly very keepable too. Happily for Juddmonte, the decision was taken to withdraw her from the sale. She didn’t reward this faith with any further victories, although she was twice Listed-placed in 1994, including finishing second in the Prix Imprudence to the previous year’s Prix Morny and Prix de la Salamandre heroine Coup De Genie (who is now the granddam of the Group One-winning half-brothers Bago and Maxios). However, as a broodmare Hasili has rewarded that decision thousandfold.

The decision not to sell Hasili was clearly a good one. However, nobody who takes a lot of decisions can get them all right – and arguably Prince Khalid Abdullah’s worst decision was to sell his 2,000 Guineas place-getter Danehill at the end of the colt’s three-year-old campaign in 1989. This meant that Danehill thus enjoyed his stellar stud career under the Coolmore and Arrowfield banners, instead of on the Juddmonte roster. (And it is worth reflecting how different the Australian bloodstock landscape would now look if Danehill had not been sold, bearing in mind that Juddmonte sires rarely shuttle). To atone for this error, though, Juddmonte frequently sent mares to Danehill at Coolmore. Hasili was one of the main beneficiaries of this practice, visiting him several times.

Hasili’s first year at stud was 1995, and she duly visited Danehill that spring. The result was Dansili, a top-class miler who won at Group Two level in France as a four-year-old and was six times Group/Grade One-placed, including in the Breeders’ Cup Mile and in most of Europe’s premier mile races. She couldn’t visit Danehill in 1996 as he was in Japan, but in 1997 she went to him for a second time. The result of this mating was Banks Hill, who finished in the first three in 11 Group/Grade One races, including winning the Coronation Stakes, Prix Jacques le Marois and Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf.

Shortly after foaling Banks Hill in 1998, Hasili was covered by Danehill’s paternal half-brotherGreen Desert at Shadwell Stud. This mating also produced a top-liner: Heat Haze, winner of two Grade One races in America as a four-year-old in 1993 (and now dam of the extremely promising two-year-old Radiator). After that one visit to Green Desert, Hasili went back to Danehill in 1999, producing Intercontinental, who was placed in two Group One races in Europe (the Grand Criterium and the 1,000 Guineas) before going to America and taking the Diana Handicap as a four-year-old and the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf aged five.

The following year’s Danehill foal was a colt (Cacique) and he, too, was very good in Europe as a youngster before becoming even better in America in maturity. As was usual for Hasili’s stock, Cacique was trained by Andre Fabre in Europe before joining Bobby Frankel’s barn in America. He didn’t race as a two-year-old, but made a winning debut at Saint-Cloud as a spring three-year-old in April 1994 and went on to enjoy a very good season, winning the Group Three Prix Daphnis over 1800m and the Group Two Prix Daniel Wildenstein over 1600m as well as finishing second to the subsequent Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe winner Bago in both the Prix Jean Prat and the Grand Prix de Paris (which in those days was going through its awkward phase of being run over 2000m). He did well as a four-year-old too, winning another Group Three race in Paris and being placed in the Group One Prix d’Ispahan. However, at five in America he really came good, winning two Grade One races on turf in New York (the Manhattan Handicap over 10 furlongs and the Man O’War Stakes over 11 furlongs) and being thrice Grade One-placed, including in the Arlington Million (when second to The Tin Man). He duly retired to Banstead Manor Stud in 2007 to stand alongside his full-brother Dansili, who was already well on the way to establishing himself as one of the very best sires in Europe.

Since breeding Cacique, Hasili has come up with two more stars.

Champs Elysees, Hasili’s Danehill colt born in 2003, took even longer than her previous foals to reach his peak, but he too proved majestic in maturity. He finally won a Group Three race over 2400m in France as a four-year-old, but at five and six he was superb in North America, winning two Grade One races in the States as a five-year-old and landing a third top-level victory aged six by taking the Canadian International. Ultimately, he proved himself at least as tough and admirable as his elder full-siblings (and that is very, very high praise indeed) by finishing in the first three in 16 Group/Graded races, nine of these being Group/Grade One events.

In 2007 Hasili broke with tradition by producing a foal who proved to be very good and who is not by a son of Danzig. (She had, incidentally, produced a colt by Sadler's Wells in 2005, but his brief racing career yielded no success. Named Raise The Flag, he found himself a place at stud at White Robe Lodge on the South Island of New Zealand, which had previously enjoyed great success with the regally-bred non-achievers Mellay and Noble Bijou, both of whom topped the NZ sires’ premiership). This filly, a daughter of Storm Cat named Deluxe, won a Grade Three race in America as a four-year-old in 2011, having been Group One-placed in France (in the Prix Saint-Alary) the previous year.

Unsurprisingly, Hasili’s daughters are already proving themselves good broodmares, most notably with Banks Hill having bred the 2013 Group One winner Romantica. But even more remarkable is the record at stud of her sons.

Dansili’s achievements at stud are too numerous and too famous to need elaboration. Suffice to say that from 10 crops of racing age, he has already produced 16 individual Group/Grade One winners (of 25 Group/Grade One races). All told, his stock have so far won 117 Group/Graded races. His sons to have retired to stud already include HarbingerRail Link,Strategic PrinceEarly MarchFamous NameDelegatorZambezi SunThousand Words,Bated BreathZoffany and Requinto.

If one takes the evidence of Cacique’s results literally, he could be regarded as a superior stallion to Dansili. The problem is that poor fertility has meant that the evidence so far is limited. He retired to Banstead Manor Stud in 2007 at a fee of £12,000, alongside his brother Dansili (who had started off at £8,000 in 2001, had reached £30,000 by 2007 and now stands for £80,000). However, poor fertility that year and the following year meant that Cacique’s first two crops contained only 35 foals in total – but these 35 foals have now thrown up two Group One winners (Dominant’s HK Vase victory having been preceded by Mutual Trust’s success in the 2011 Prix Jean Prat – and, incidentally, it is an amusing coincidence that both times that a son of Cacique has won a Group One race, Dansili has sired the runner-up, with Zoffany chasing home Mutual Trust on that occasion). Furthermore, Cacique has also sired the Group Two winner Canticum, the Group Three winner Census and the Listed winner Slumber. If Cacique could extrapolate the feat of having one in seven of his foals scoring at Group or Listed level, he would be a champion sire – and the good news is that we might be able to find out if he can do that, because his stud career appears to have been given a second chance. After two seasons of very poor fertility, Juddmonte ceased to promote him as a stallion, but by 2012 his fertility seemed to be responding to veterinary attention, and he had 31 foals been born this year.

With Dansili certainly a top-class sire and Cacique almost certainly a top-class sire, it is going to be very interesting to see what Champs Elysees can do. Arguably the most handsome of the three full-brothers, Champs Elysees retired to Banstead Manor Stud in 2010 at a fee of £10,000. That had dropped to £5,000 by 2013, but it looks sure to begin to rise after the success of his first juveniles during the recent summer and autumn. He seems capable of siring horses considerably less slow-developing than he was, his first crop of juveniles including the Irish Listed winner Avenue Gabriel, the French Listed-place-getter Xcellence and a swag of very promising maiden winners. His foals sold very well at the recent December Sale, and he currently looks to be one of Europe’s most upwardly-mobile young sires.

The gist of which is that if Rosdhu Queen can become even half as influential a broodmare as Sookera turned out to have been, then her new owners will have bought very well indeed.
