First foal for
Dylan Thomas

HARAS du Cadran welcomed the first foal by Dylan Thomas on Thursday night when Mansoura foaled a 'quality' bay filly.

A daughter of Kalanisi, Mansoura is a three-parts sister to Grade 1 winner Manndar and a half-sister to the dam of multiple Group 1 winner Mandesha.

Pierre Talvard, owner of Haras du Cadran, described the filly as: "A quality bay filly, strong with plenty of bone and a lovely head."

Trained by Aidan O'Brien, Dylan Thomas ran a close third in the 2006 Derby en route to victories in the Irish Derby and Irish Champion Stakes. He returned the following year to land four Group 1 races including the King George and Arc.

The son of Danehill covered 170 mares during his first season last year at CoolmoreStud and will stand the upcoming season at €35,000.
