Channon-trained Milton Road gives Mazameer first winner
The two-year-old colt landed a Goodwood seller
It may have been just a lowly seller that Milton Road won at Goodwood on Sunday, but for the connections of the colt's sire Mazameer it will always be fondly remembered as the first race to be won by one of the stallion's progeny.
The two-year-old colt is trained and owned by Mick Channon, and was bred by M P Bishop out of the placed Piccolo mare Blakeshall Girl, whose other progeny include the seven-time winner Interchoice Star.
Mazameer was trained by Freddy Head throughout a racing career that included nine starts and three wins, the highlight of which came in the 2012 Group 3 Prix de Cabourg at two, when he was also beaten just three and a quarter lengths by Reckless Abandon in the Prix Morny.
The son of Green Desert is out of the In The Wings mare Straight Miss, an unraced half-sister to 2008 Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere winner Naaqoos.
He retired to Throckmorton Court Stud in 2014, from where he has sired 25 foals. He is standing the 2017 breeding season under the Kingfisher Stallions banner at Merrington Stud in Warwickshire at a fee of £3,000.
