BALLINASISLA STUD in County Waterford was where Kingston Hill's first foal arrived on Wednesday morning, in the shape of a colt out of the Listed-placed Tobougg mare Nonna Iole.

Giovanni Parri, of Allevamento LeGi who owns the foal, said: "He's a very nice and correct bay colt."

Should the colt foal go onto greater things, it would not be surprising as Allevamento LeGi also bred Beauty Only, winner of the Group 1 Hong Kong Mile and Italian Derby scorer Biz The Nurse.

Kingston Hill, a six-year-old son of Mastercraftsman, won the Group 1 Racing Post Trophy over a mile as a two-year-old, and during his Classic campaign won the St Leger two starts after finishing runner-up to Australia in the Derby.

Kingston Hill stood at a fee of €6,000 at Coolmore Stud in 2016, and is standing at a reduced fee of €5,000 for this year's breeding season.
