HARBOUR WATCH AT 30 FOR THE YEAR
making a winning debut in the Wimbledon Betting At 188Bet Novice Median Auction
Stakes at Chepstow on Tuesday evening means Harbour Watch has now sired 30
winners in Europe from his first two crops.
Harbour Watch is
behind only Sir Prancealot (32) in the table for leading European Second Crop
Sires based on winners and level with Helmet. He's also ahead of the likes of
Frankel, Nathaniel and Excelebration at the time of writing.
Harbour Watch has been responsible for four winners in the
last week, namely Flood Defence and Rayon Vert from his first crop and
two-year-olds Quayside and Fortune's Pearl. Quayside and Flood Defence are both
progressing well, with the former getting off the mark in a six-furlong maiden
at Hamilton last Thursday and the latter taking a Doncaster handicap over a
mile the following evening.
Fortune's Pearl matched Harbour Watch's best two-year-old
this year - the Gr. 2 Norfolk Stakes runner-up Santry - by making a winning
start to his career, showing a good attitude in the finish. He was bred by Miss
Joann Lyons, out of the Muhtarram mare Princess Mood, and was bought as a foal
for 30,000 guineas by Tweenhills' manager David Redvers on behalf of Qatar
Fortune's Pearl is a half-brother to both the multiple Gr.
1-placed Sunny King and Ayr Gold Cup winner Captain Ramius, and he already
looks a bargain.
