New Japanese imports for Haras de Lonray

HARAS de Lonray in Normandy has added two new former Japanese runners to its stallion roster.

The stud stood Divine Light, another racehorse formerly trained in Japan who sired 1,000 Guineas heroine Natagora, before he was exported to Turkey in 2007.

One of the new arrivals at Lonray, Millennium Bio, is by Divine Light's sire Sunday Silence and out of a half-sister to Pebbles. He won the Yomiuri Milers Cup (Gr2) and finished third in the 1m Yasuda Kinen (Gr1) at four.

Millenium Bio's oldest progeny in Japan is four, and his fee at Lonray has been set at €3,000.

The other new import from Japan is Air Eminem, an Irish-bred son of Danehill from the family of Sleeping Indian and Bach. He won two Group 2 races over 1m2f at three, and the 1m3f Sankei Sho All Comers (Gr2) at five.

His oldest progeny from his stud career in Japan is also four, and he will also stand at a fee of €3,000.

Millennium Bio and Air Eminem join last year's Arlington Million winner Spirit One as new recruits at Lonray in 2009.
