Dual Classic-placed son of Zebedee has first foals arrive
Two-time winner Beauthea had a colt by the Coolmore stallion
Ivawood, the high-class two-year-old with a peak RPR rating of 117, has his first foals on the ground as three were born on Sunday.
John Malone said that Musical Peace produced a "big, strong bay filly". Musical Peace is a winning half-sister to Listed winners Pugin and Chartres. Chartres is the dam of a Group 2 winner in the UAE in Certerach, while Musical Peace is also a half-sister to Sogno Verde, the dam of Group 2 Railway Stakes scorer Lilbourne Lad.
Beauthea, owned by Fiona McStay, foaled "a lovely bay colt with plenty of size and bone". Beauthea, a dual winner and fourth in the Group 2 Debutante Stakes, is from the family of St Leger winner Simple Verse and Group 2 scorer Even Song.
Rainbow Song, owned by Massimo Marchetti of Allevamento Gialloblu, had a colt and Patrick Headon of Wraymount Stud noted that "he's a very good foal with size and strength, a smashing first foal for the mare". Rainbow Song is closely related to Grade 1 Del Mar Oaks heroine Dublino.
Ivawood, a five-year-old son of Zebedee, won his maiden and both the July Stakes and Richmond Stakes as a juvenile, before being narrowly touched off by Charming Thought in the Middle Park Stakes.
He continued to perform well at three, finishing third in both the 2,000 Guineas and Irish 2,000 Guineas.
Ivawood is standing at Coolmore Stud at a fee of €7,500 for the 2017 breeding season.
