Winker Watson has first foal on the ground

SPEEDY juvenile winner Winker Watson sired his first foal on Tuesday when the Chevalier filly Artistic License gave birth.

The new arrival, a chestnut colt with a white blaze, was bred by James Repard and Martin Stokes.

Five-year-old Artistic License won six races and was accorded an official rating of 89 after smartly winning a class 3 handicap at Goodwood.

Trained by Peter Chapple-Hyam, Winker Watsonwon his first three starts including the Norfolk and July Stakes.

A six-year-old son of Piccolo, he is out of the Rousillon mare Bonica, from the family of Anglo-Irish 2,000 Guineas runner-up Enrique.

His pedigree received a boost last year when Klammer, a grandson of Bonica's half-sister Chipaya, won the Horris Hill Stakes.

Winker Watson stands at Norman Court Stud in Wiltshire, at a fee of £3,000 with October 1 terms and a free fillyreturn offer for 2012.
