More exciting Havana Gold two-year-olds named
As the Flat season draws ever nearer, we look at another batch of Havana Gold’s two-year-olds (his biggest and best crop yet at 144 individuals) which have recently been named. All those listed are with Gr.1-winning trainers…
Dual Newmarket winner Anice Stellato ran in two Stakes races for Ralph Beckett and Clipper Logistics and has also produced two-year-old Gr.2 winner Agnes Stewart for the same owner. Her 150,000gns two-year-old Havana Gold colt has been named Bayamo and will be trained by John Gosden.
Richard Hannon will train several Havana Gold juveniles this year, with the latest to be named being colt Gaius (out of two-year-old winner and Stakes-placed Gemina) and filly Goldilocks (out of Life Is Golden, dam of last year’s winning juvenile Macmerry Jim).
Paul Gardner of Spingcombe Park Stud is a Tweenhills supporter and his triple winner Moretta Blanche, dam of 2018 Stakes winner Blizzard, produced a Havana Gold filly the following year. She is now called Daiquiri Francais and in training with Ralph Beckett.
In the North, Richard Fahey will train the filly out of Yensi called Ana Gold; Kevin Ryan will train the filly out of Keladora (and therefore a full sister to dual winner Mawakib) called Anadora; Tom Dascombe will train John Brown’s homebred filly out of Adorable Choice (dam of Stakes winner Iconic Choice) named Glittering Choice; and John Quinn has the filly out of Secret Hint called Shear Gold for Hope Eden Racing, as well as an unnamed Havana Gold gelding out of Leopard Creek for Richard Kent.
The half-sister to Gr.1 winner Krypton Factor (out of Cool Question) in training with James Tate has been named Gift Horse. Also in Newmarket is a Havana Gold colt called Little Earl with Robert Cowell – he’s out of Majestic Alexander, dam of Stakes sprinters Angel Alexander and Mighty Spirit.
Lady Perignon was a useful triple winner for Andrew Balding and Dr Jim and Fitri Hay, and the same trainer has her colt Great Havana. Around 25 miles from Kingsclere, Eve Johnson Houghton has a Havana Gold colt out of Figurante called King of The Dance and a filly out of Lulani named Savuka.
With all these two-year-olds to run this year, as well as 130 more, there has never been a better time to use Havana Gold as a breeder. His 2021 fee of £7,500 (1st Oct SLF) is half of what it was in both 2018 and 2019.
