WORKFORCE (3 c King's Best-Soviet Moon by Sadler's Wells)

Breeder: Juddmonte Farms

ONE of the key aspects of Juddmonte Farms'  success as the breeder of top-class horses has been its nurturing of its own families.

And Workforce is from a family it has had in its stud book since 1984, when the Derby/Arc hero's third dam Media Luna was purchased.

Oaks placed herself, Media Luna is a half-sister to another mare who fits that billing in Suni. She is also granddam of Flute, a daughter of Seattle Slew who won the Kentucky Oaks and Alabama Stakes for Khalid Abdullah in 2001.

Workforce's dam is an unraced sister to St Leger winner Brian Boru, Listed winner Kitty O'Shea, and Gr3-placed winner Kushnarenkovo.

His sire  King's Best has had a notable year as his son  EishinFlash won the Japanese Derby, the Tokyo Yushun. Group 3 winner Simon de Montfort, off the course since Aprl, is another 2010 stakes winner for the son of Kingmambo.
