Cracking Start to 2020

Posted 12/1/2020

 Be Fair in the winners enclosure at LingfieldBe Fair in the winners enclosure at Lingfield           A couple of winners for James Ortega Bloodstock bred horses in the first nine days of 2020 mean a wonderful start for our progeny as they strut their stuff on various stages. First up was four year old Be Fair (Kyllachy x Going For Gold) who followed up a December win at Lingfield with a second win in only his sixth start on January 4th. After three fairly innocuous runs in Ireland he transferred to Tony Carroll in the UK and immediately improved to finish third before winning his two races over a mile and a half. Clearly he has needed some time to come to himself and is still only rated 65 but I think there is plenty more to come from him. He is half brother to listed placed and two time winner Chicadoro (Paco Boy x Going For Gold - rated 100) and three time winner Kaanoon (Bated Breath x Going For Gold - rated 98) and full brother to Aureana who only ran once before being retired due to injury and is now a broodmare in foal to Bated Breath in France where she will be for sale in the February Arqana sale. 

            On January 9th Ekhtiyaar (Bated Breath x Bayja - rated 112) won his fifth race in Meydan taking his winnings to over £320,000. Last year he ran very well to be a three length second to top sprinter, and now stallion, Blue Point in a Group 3 race in Meydan and hopefully he can push on and win a Group race this year. On ratings he needs to find three or four lengths to put himself in with a chance of winning at the top level and become the first Group 1 winner for Bated Breath for whom he already owns the highest Racing Post Rating (RPR) of 116.

            So, a promising start to 2020 for us and let's see if we can continue in this positive vein on the racetrack!Ekhtiyaar winning at Meydan over 6f on January 9th 2020Ekhtiyaar winning at Meydan over 6f on January 9th 2020
