Notnowcato represented by first winner

STANLEY House Stud stallion Notnowcato was represented by his first winner when Now My Sun made a winning debut in the 7f maiden at Haydock on Saturday night.

The colt is one of seven runners in Britain and Ireland by Notnowcato, who narrowly failed to get off the mark last month when daughter Catamount went down by a head at Naas.

Trained by Sir Michael Stoute on behalf of Anthony and David de Rothschild, Notnowcato rose through the handicap ranks to take high order as a four and five-year-old. After landing a pair of Group 3 events, he made a winning transition to Group 1 company in the Juddmonte International and went on to take the Irish Champion Stakes at the expense of Dylan Thomas. He returned the following year to take the Eclipse Stakes, in which he defeated Authorized and George Washington.

The only son of Inchinor at stud, Notnowcato has 48 two-year-olds to represent him bred off a first-year fee of £8,000. He stood the past season at Stanley House Stud in Newmarket for £5,000.

Bred by owner Ray Bailey, Now My Sun is a half-brother to the Listed-placed Wrekin Sunset (by Doyen) and the second foal out of Sienna Sunset. The daughter of Spectrum won two races for Bailey
