Sir Percy back home at Lanwades after shuttling

DERBY hero Sir Percy is back home safe and sound at his northern hemisphere base of Lanwades Stud in Newmarket after another southern hemisphere breeding season spent at Rich Hill Stud in New Zealand.

It's a big year for the son of Mark Of Esteem, as his first two-year-old progeny will make their racing debuts.

Sir Percy was rated Britain's champion juvenile of 2005 after remaining unbeaten in four starts including the Vintage and Dewhurst Stakes.

Lanwades owner and general manager Kirsten Rausing said: "We are of course delighted to have Sir Percy back with us at Lanwades.

"It was thrilling to see his first yearlings received so well by the market in 2010. In fact, his yearlings averaged four times his original stud fee, a higher ratio than for any other first-crop stallion standing in England or Ireland.

Sir Percy stands at Lanwades this year at a fee of £6,000.
