A’Ali Sires First Reported Foals

Multiple Group 2-winning sire A’Ali (Ire) welcomed his first reported foals in the past few weeks, among them a colt out of dual Group 3 winner Maureen (Ire) (Holy Roman Emperor {Ire}), who was fourth in the G1 Coronation S.

“Maureen was an obvious type of mare for A’Ali and we’re delighted with the end result”, said Newsells Park Stud’s General Manager, Julian Dollar, where A’Ali stands. “This colt is less than two days old, but came out very strong, balanced and well put together.  Our hope was always that A’Ali’s foals would be in the same model as himself and so far from everything we’re seeing and hearing, that’s exactly what we’re getting.”

Breeder Eugene Daly of Longview Stud had two mares produce A’Ali foals last week. Luminesce (Ire) (Muhaarar {GB}), from the family of Group 1 winner Mohaather (GB), foaled a bay filly, while the winner Moddy Poddle (Ire) (Pride Of Dubai {Aus}) produced a bay colt.

Daly said, “I’ve been very impressed with both of the A’Ali foals born on the stud. They’re quality individuals with great strength and very much in the mould of their sire. Having seen him again at the recent TBA stallion parade at Tattersalls last week, I’m looking forward to supporting him again this year.”

Another A’Ali new arrival is a colt out of Eric Cantillon’s mare Maajmeh Dawn (Ire) (Dawn Approach {Ire}), herself a half-sister to Listed Dee S. hero Viren’s Army (Ire) (Twirling Candy).

Cantillon said, “This is a good colt foal. Strong, correct and with plenty about him. I like him so much I’ve decided to send the mare back to him again this year and another mare besides.”

The son of the late Society Rock (Ire) won the G2 Norfolk S., G2 Prix Robert Papin, and the G2 Flying Childers S. at two, before adding the G3 Sapphire S. and G3 Coral Charge S. at three. The recipient of 116 mares in his first season, he stands for £5,000 at Newsells Park Stud this year. A unique breeding incentive scheme is also being offered by Newsells Park.
