Lanwades Stud's first foal of 2010 arrives
THE first-born foal of 2010 for Kirsten Rausing's Lanwades Stud in Newmarket was delivered on Monday.
The new arrival is a chestnut filly by top American sire Smart Strike, out of the 14-year-old Nashwan mare Summer Night.
Summer Night has produced four black-typewinners to date: Group 3 Prix des Reservoirs winner Songerie (Hernando), Listed Prix Petite Etoile scorer Soft Morning (Pivotal), Lised Euroselect Preis winner Souvenance (Hernando) and Listed Minneslopning winner Sourire (Domedriver).
A full-brother to the newly born filly will be offered for sale at this autumn's yearling sales.
