First foal for Coolmore's Strategic Prince
LOVE KNOT, a winning Lomitas half-sister to Playfellow, gave birth to the first foal by Strategic Prince on Wednesday.
The new-born is a colt owned by Paul Croke, who said: "He is a lovely strong, correct foal – we are very happy with him."
A son of Dansili out of a stakes-winning sister to Oaks winner Ramruma, Strategic Prince pulled off a Group 2 double at two by winning the July Stakes and the Vintage Stakes. He also finished a close third behind Teofilo and Holy Roman Emperor in the Dewhurst Stakes.
