            By underrated sire Mount Nelson out of a 101 rated listed placed Montjeu mare (Lady Francesca), Lady Macha ran four times in 2017 as a three year old and ran respectably including a second place and a rating of 71. Unfortunately she damaged her off fore knee and the decision by Newsells Park Stud was to retire her from racing and hence she appeared in the breeding stock sale in December 2017 at Tattersalls.

            Lady Francesca's first foal by Proud Citizen died as a yearling and she also has a 2015 full brother to Lady Macha called Bartholomeu Dias who ran a very good fourth in the Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot, reached a rating of 92 and was in training with Charlie HillsLady Macha bought at Tattersalls December Sale 2017Lady Macha bought at Tattersalls December Sale 2017He won two races as a three year old and has won again in 2019 reaching a rating of 98. He was sold in the autumn of 2019 for 150,000 guineas and is now with Ciaron Maher & David Eustace in Australia. Lady Francesca was rested in 2016 and then produced a colt by Muhaarar in 2017 subsequently named Atheeb and a 2yo winner rated 82. He has also won as a 3yo. In 2018 she produced a filly by Shalaa. These matings indicate that owners Newsells Park Stud think a fair bit about Lady Francesca and are prepared to invest in her which augurs well for Lady Macha. 

            The second dam is Mountain Cat mare Purring who has produced two other black type mares in Group 3 winner Purr Along and Listed winner Katawi (by Dubawi). In fact Purr Along, who sold at the Tattersalls December Sale in 2013 for 1m guineas, is by Mount Nelson making her three parts in blood related to Lady Macha. She is now a broodmare and has a 2016 colt by Dubawi called Zuba, who has won a two races to date, a 2017 colt by Lope De Vega called Starcat, a 2018 filly by Dubawi who won at the back end of his two year old career and then came 7th in the 2000 Guineas. Next up Purr Along was covered by Dark Angel and produced a colt in 2019 before being covered by Roaring Lion. Katawi has a 2017 Dark Angel filly called Katangel, a 2018 filly by Muhaarar, a 2019 filly by Iffraaj and then visited Sea The Stars.

            Lady Francesca has another four half sisters who are broodmares, namely Desert Run, Cat O'Nine Tails, Kittens and Kitty For Me. This family could take off seriously in the next three to five years.

            As for Lady Macha, she was covered by Bated Breath for her inaugural cover in 2018 and after getting in foal unfortunately aborted late in the year. In 2020 she produced a filly foal by Ultra and then went to the UK to be covered by Outstrip.
