THE Irish National Stud has welcomed the timely arrival of Quevega's second foal, a colt by Walk In The Park, on Monday just before midnight.
Quevega, a six-time winner of the David Nicholson Mares' Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival, which begins next week, has already produced a filly by Beat Hollow who is now two years old.
Bred by Pierre Rives, the 13-year-old daughter of Robin Des Champs is one of five winners out of the Cap Martin mare Vega IV.
Quevega starter her career in France for Bertrand de Watrigant, who saddled her to win three bumpers in France, before being trained by Willie Mullins for the Hammer And Trowel syndicate.
