    Gregorian (16.1hh, 2009 Clodovil x Three Days In May)

    £4,500 1st October SLF

     

    Gregorian, by a Classic winning son of Danehill, has been incredibly well supported by breeders throughout his first three seasons at stud. Special thanks must be given to his shareholders – they have given him every opportunity to flourish with his first crop of runners in 2018. Trainers who purchased Gregorian’s stock resoundingly praised their great walks and athleticism, and we can only hope that they display their sire’s toughness on the track.

    His first yearlings were much anticipated in 2017, and did not disappoint. Prices reached up to €60,000 and his sales average for the Goffs Sportsman’s Sale was over 6 times his 2015 fee. Tattersalls Book 2 delivered an even higher average of over 9 times his fee, and prices in Book 3 frequently topped 20,000gns.

    The depth and diversity of trainers that purchased Gregorian’s first yearlings was especially pleasing to see. His two-year-olds are set to be trained by the likes of Michael Dods, Karl Burke, Tim Easterby, Kevin Ryan, David Elsworth, Hugo Palmer, Dean Ivory, Brian Ellison, Keith Dalgeish, James Given, Iain Jardine, Eve Johnson Houghton, Brian Smart, James Tate, Ben Haslam, Mick Channon and Tom Clover/Jackie Jarvis.

    2017 Pedigree notes

    Gregorian’s dam Three Days In May, is a Cadeaux Genereaux mare, thus Gregorian shares close blood nicks with National Stud stalwart Bahamian Bounty. Mares that have been successfully mated with Bahamian Bounty should match very well with Gregorian. Gregorian is sired by Clodovil (Danehill ex Clodora (Linamix), both Clodovil and Bahamian Bounty are known for breeding sound, genuine and honest racehorses – after all they are the sires of the 2013 and 2014 G3 Hungerford Stakes winners in Gregorian and Breton Rock.

    Both Clodovil and Bahamian Bounty work well with Mr. Prospector. Bahamian Bounty has worked very well with Gulch mares, for instance, Cherry Hinton winner Sendmylovetorose and Machiavellian is dam-sire of Babodana. Clodovils that also work well from this cross include Shining Emerald (Zafonic), I’m So Glad (Almutawakel), Madam Picasso (Titus Livius), Moss Likely (Lycius) and Amazing Storm (Woodman).

    In terms of the Storm Bird line – examples such as Clodovil’s Miss Lahar (Mujadil) and Murra Niedda (Mujadil) and Bahamian Bounty’s Dick Poole Fillies Stakes G3 progeny New Providence (Giant’s Causeway) show that this too would be a successful cross.

    Clodovil’s Alben Star is out of a Green Desert – Danzig line while Bahamian Bounty’s Listed placed Di Stefano (Desert Sun) also works with this family.

    Clodovil has an affinity with Ahonoora line mares e.g. Group 1 Falmouth Stakes winner Nahoodh is out of an Indian Ridge mare descending from Ahonoora while Group 2 Lennox Stakes winner Es Que Love has an Inchinor dam. Other Stakes performers on the Clodovil / Ahonoora cross are Alice’s Dancer and Cloud (both Indian Ridge). Ahonoora line sires that may nick very well with Gregorian are Acclamation, New Approach, Cape Cross, and Leroidesanimaux.

    Group 3 Horris Hill Stakes winner Beacon Lodge is derived from the Northern Dancer line through a Royal Academy mare, other Stakes performers that represent a Northern Dancer cross include Kane’s Pass (Montjeu), Tigrilla (Sadler’s Wells), Secret Asset (Soviet Star), Naseem Alyasmeen (Galileo), Kickboxer (Niniski), Maid In Heaven (Lomond) and Mauriac (Pentire). The Never Bend line works well also, Group 2 Prix de Sandringham winner Laugh Out Loud (Darshaan) represents the Nasrullah line through Mill Reef. Another Clodovil Stakes performer, Sognando La Cometa, represents the good cross between Darshaan and Clodovil.

    While Group 3 Prix de Moussac placed Coupe de Ville (Fantastic Light) is an excellent example of the Nasrullah line through the Blushing Groom / Red God family being successful with Clodovil.

    The Listed Premio Coolmore winner Sorella Bella (Diesis), and Leading Turkish two-year-old colt Berkarar (Selkirk), Rock My Soul (Cadeaux Genereux) and Gregorian himself are a strain of Raise A Native sire-line through Sharpen Up, as is Gregorian’s sister, Manderley won was Guineas placed in 2014.
