Fifty Stars Welcomes First Foals

Fifty Stars (Ire) (Sea the Stars (Ire)–Swizzle Stick (Ire), by Sadler’s Wells) has welcomed his first foals as he starts his second season at Sunnyhill Stud in partnership with Jack Cantillon’s Bloodstock Racing. The Group 1-winner did his best running in Australia but now stands in the northern hemisphere at the National Hunt stud.

“I’m going to be looking everywhere I can to find more mares for Fifty Stars on the basis of his first foal out of Lady Breffni (Ire) (Yeats {Ire}). We bought Grade 2 winning Lady Breffni to launch our Syndicates.Racing breeding syndicate and our owners have been rewarded with a tank of a filly–she looks like she could run in a point to point by Christmas,” said Cantillon. ” We’ve been struck this year by breeders really waking up to the opportunity to breed to Sea The Star’s only Group 1 winning son that won a Group race over less than a mile–something not even Baaeed, Crystal Ocean or Stravarius could do and they don’t stand for €3,000! Micheal Hickey’s phone is going to be very busy if foals keep coming out like her.”
