First foal a colt for sprinting sensation
Stork delivers a notable baby to Churchview Stables
Exciting sire Muhaarar has his first foal on the ground in the shape of a colt who was born at Churchview Stables in County Kildare earlier this week.
The colt is out of Chris Humber's mare New Providence, a daughter of Bahamian Bounty who was trained by Hugo Palmer to win the Group 3 Dick Poole Fillies' Stakes and the Group 3 Summer Stakes.
Stud director Richard Lancaster said: "We're delighted that Muhaarar's first foal is now safely on the ground, after all the hard work we put into his first book and the support the breeders have given us, it is good to get off the mark.
"New Providence is a great example of the kind of mare we were looking for when selecting Muhaarar's book. She was a Group-winning two-year-old that trained on and won over a perfect sprint distance. It's mares like that, that will help him get his first-two-year-old winners in a couple of seasons' time."
Muhaarar, a five-year-old son of Oasis Dream, was trained by Charlie Hills to become champion sprinter after scintillating victories in the Commonwealth Cup, July Cup, Prix Maurice de Gheest and Champions Sprint.
He is set to stand the upcoming breeding season at Nunnery Stud at an unchanged fee of £30,000.
