GALIWAY has his first foal on the ground arrive as the Kendargent mare Kensha has given birth to a filly foal at Haras de Colleville in Normandy, France.

Kensha is by the stud's flagbearer Kendargent and had a brief race career at two and three. This is the five-year-old mare's first foal.

Kensha was owned and bred by Guy Pariente, also the owner of Kendargent, and is a sister to the Listed-placed Pachadargent and out of the Listed winner Sabasha.

Guillaume Vitse, stud manager at Haras de Colleville, said: "She is a very good-looking individual. She has good quality in her bone and good scope. She is a good quality foal, and we are very happy with that."

Haras de Colleville is expecting a further 40 foals by its newest recruit in 2017 and he will be shown on the Route des Etalons on January 21 and 22.

Six-year-old Galiway was trained by Andre Fabre for his owner-breeders the Wertheimer brothers. He is a son of Galileo out of the Group 3-winning Danehill mare Danzigaway.

His juvenile career saw him win a mile maiden at Saint-Cloud before travelling to Newbury where he was second in the Group 3 Horris Hill Stakes over 7f in testing conditions.

He began his three-year-old campaign with a third-place finish in the Group 3 Prix de Fontainebleau at Longchamp, and was fifth in the Poule d'Essai des Poulains and ninth in the Prix du Jockey Club, both in 2014.

Galiway won a Listed race at Maisons-Laffitte on his final start, before he was retired to Haras de Colleville, where his stud fee has remained at €3,000 for the 2017 breeding season.
