Seamus Burns breeds first foal by Alfred Nobel

PHOENIX Stakes winner Alfred Nobel has sired his first foal, a colt who was fittingly foaled at the stallion's own birthplace, Seamus Burns' Lodge Park Stud.

The colt, who was born on Saturday, is a half-brother to four winners and out of the Catrail mare CafeCreme, a half-sister to Cheveley Park Stakes heroine Seazun.

The colt was described by Damian Burns as "a really good strong colt with plenty of scope and quality that's marked very much like his sire. We are delighted with him. We bred not only Alfred Nobel and Cafe Creme but also both their dams and grandams."

Alfred Nobel was a top-class and precocious two-year-old for Aidan O'Brien, winning three races including the Phoenix Stakes and Railway Stakes. The son of Danehill Dancer, who is from the family of New Approach, stands at Coolmore for €4,000.
