Good reports for
first foals by Paco Boy
THE first foals by triple Group 1 winner Paco Boy have arrived in recent weeks, led by a colt out of Key Light, who was born at Richard Tucker's Nelson Farm Stud in Devon.
A winning daughter of Acclamation, Key Light is out of the Group 1-winning two-year-old Eva Luna.
Tucker said of the foal: "He was up and moving round the box faster than any foal I've seen before, he certainly looks like a proper two-year-old!"
The second Paco Boy foal on the ground is a filly born at Moyglare Stud Farm out of Genuine Charm, a Sadler's Wells sister to Refuse to Bend and half-sister to Media Puzzle, while the third is a well marked bay colt out of Don't Dili Dali, a Listed-winning daughter of Dansili.
John Warren reported of the latter colt: "He is a really strong correct well marked sort. It's looking like a very good start for Paco Boy."
He added of the stallion, who has ten mares overdue: "Everyone at Highclere is very excited about the Paco Boys arriving, especially as he had such a good first book of mares. He has been very popular again this year with 100 mares booked and it's such fun having a young stallion with his first crop hitting the ground."
As tough as he was talented for Richard Hannon, Paco Boy struck eight times in Pattern company, notably when capturing the Prix de la Foret, Queen Anne Stakes and Lockinge Stakes. The son of Desert Style stands at Highclere Stud for £8,000.
