First foal for Irish National Stud's Jeremy
THE Irish National Stud stallion Jeremy, a son of Danehill Dancer who finished second in the Queen Anne Stakes, sired his first foal when the Cape Cross mare Lanehaya produced a bay filly at Barnane Stud onMonday.
Owned by Allan Bloodlines, the mare is a half-sister to the champion miler Lahib and from a family tracing to horses such as Al Bahathri, Haafhd and Spanish Fern. The new arrival is the mare's first foal.
Barnane Stud owner Patrick Wynn-Jones said the filly is "a good sort, very nice, with plenty of size and bone."
Jeremy covered 112 mares, 66 of which were winners, in his first season at the Irish National Stud. A winner of the Jersey Stakes and the Betfred Mile for trainer Sir Michael Stoute, he is from a top stallion-producing family that includes the likes of Nashwan, Unfuwain and Nayef. His dam is a half-sister to champion Deep Impact.
He stood his first season at stud at a fee of €12,500, and will be available to breeders this year at €8,000.
