PRIX MORNY (Group 1)
21 August 2011
Japanese breeding was revolutionized by the arrival of Sunday Silence, as good a sire as there was in the world. Not only was he the perennial champion sire in all categories in his adopted country, but his sons now occupy six of the ten top spots on the Japanese General Sires’ list. The likes of Deep Impact, Neo Universe, Zenno Rob Roy, Manhattan Café and Fuji Kiseki have set Mount Fuji alight, and this weekend it was the turn of his Group One-winning miler, Hat Trick, based at Walmac Farm in Kentucky.
Hat Trick’s unbeaten son, Dabirsim took his tally to three, from three when he flattened the best of Europe’s juveniles by three lengths in the Prix Morny (Gr1) at Deauville Sunday, and as arguably the fastest juvenile in that part of the world, he now has his sights set on England’s Middle Park Stakes (Gr1) at Ascot in October. Traditionally run at Newmarket since its inauguration in 1866, the Middle Park moves for the first time in its history to the Queen’s course on the edge of Windsor Forest, alongside the castle by that name.
The Sunday Silence tribe have all-conquering records across the world, and those that work at Summerhill, will tell you his outstanding son, Admire Main, has thrown us a couple of “pearlers” again this season.
