Having retired to stud in late March of last year, the first foals by #Idaho are now arriving and include this quality colt out of Happy Flight bred by John Butler who described him as “probably the best foal we’ve ever had.” Winner of the Hardwicke Stakes at #RoyalAscot, the Great Voltigeur Stakes @yorkraces and the Ormonde Stakes @chesterraces, #Idaho was also placed in the Epsom Derby, the Irish Derby and behind Enable in the ‘King George’. Bred on the famed #Galileo/Danehill cross he is a full brother to seven-time Gr.1 winning superstar #HighlandReel #CoolmoreNHSires #HomeOfChampions #TheBeeches #Coolmore #Horses #Horseracing #HorsesOfInstagram #Thoroughbred
Mendessohn is one of those colts who was made for being a stallion. A G1 winner on turf/MG1P on dirt by a top stallion who looks like he’ll be a sire-of-sires & o/o a mare who has produced a top sire already. It’ll be more of a surprise if he doesn’t make it than if he does.
