Kinnaird sibling among well-bred debut runners By Chris Hill 8:17PM 31 OCT 2016
EVE JOHNSON HOUGHTON introduces the well-related two-year-old colt Pleasure Requested on Tuesday in Kempton's 7f maiden at 5.10pm.
Bred by Victor Stud out of the twice-raced Be My Guest mare Ribot's Guest, the son of Acclamation was offered by the stud at the 2014 Tattersalls December Foal Sale where he was purchased by Platinum Bloodstock for 46,000gns.
On two further visits to the Newmarket auction house however the colt was bought back by the vendor, most recently at this year's Guineas Breeze-Up Sale.
Ribot's Guest has been responsible for three winners to date with Pleasure Requested being a half-brother to Group winners Kinnaird and Mickdaam from the further family of champion European three-year-old filly Ridasiyna.
By Dr Devious, Kinnaird won five times as a juvenile including the 1m Group 2 May Hill Stakes. After landing the 2005 Prix de l'Opera she has proved to be a useful broodmare in her own right as dam of 2013 Group 2 Royal Lodge Stakes victor Berkshire, Listed Newmarket Stakes runner-up Abdon and grandam of dual Group 2-winning juvenile Ivawood.
A son of Dubawi, Mickdaam is the most expensive of Ribot's Guest's offspring to change hands when bought by Form Bloodstock for 360,000gns at the 2010 Tattersalls October Yearling Sale. A winner over 7f as a two-year-old, he went on to narrowly claim the following year's 1m4½f Group 3 Chester Vase in 2012.
War Front filly bids for perfect start at Redcar
Redcar's opening 7f maiden at 12.40pm features the debut of Game Starter, a Saeed Bin Suroor-trained son of Dubawi who hails from the family of 1990 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes winner Belmez.
The Darley homebred is the first foal produced by the Cape Cross mare Opera Cloak, an unraced half-sister to John Gosden's 2010 Arlington Million hero Debussy and Laugh Aloud, who secured this season's Listed Rosemary Stakes for the Newmarket trainer.
Gosden is represented by another contender having their first start, the War Front filly Peaceful Passage.
Owned and bred by Emory Alexander Hamilton, breeder of Verrazano, Peaceful Passage shares her page with the 2013 Haskell Invitational Stakes and Wood Memorial Stakes hero as both descend from Hamilton's foundation mare Too Chic, dam of top-class US mares Chic Shirine and Queena.
Peaceful Passage is out of the A P Indy mare Flying Passage, a winning daughter of Chic Shirine who has foaled four winners including the 1m and 1m1f US Grade 2 victress Hungry Island and 1m US Grade 3 scorer Soaring Empire.
Redcar debut for brother to speedy Tiddliwinks
The second division of the 7f maiden at 1.10pm sees Kevin Ryan unveil Pipe Dreamer, a brother to Tiddliwinks who carried renowned owner-breeder Guy Reed's yellow, black and pink silks to victory in the 6f Group 2 Duke of York Stakes and Group 3 Greenlands Stakes in 2012.
Reed passed away in 2013 but Pipe Dreamer will race in the same colours as he is owned by Guy Reed Racing who have retained ownership of the famous silks.
The son of Piccolo was bred by Copgrove Hall Stud near Harrogate, home of Reed's broodmare band, out of the First Trump mare Card Games, a winner over 5f and 6f.
Card Games has produced four winners to date with Pipe Dreamer also being a brother to 5f to 1m½f scorer Pelmanism and half-brother to 7f to 1m winners Mrs Bun and Lavetta.
Among his opponents is the John Gosden-trained Style And Grace, a daughter of the Thunder Gulch mare Sense Of Style, winner of the Grade 1 Matron Stakes and a half-sister to the 1999 Poule d'Essai des Pouliches heroine Valentine Waltz.
By So You Think, Style And Grace is a three-parts sister to the 1m7f Listed Prix Michel Houyvet scorer Only A Pleasure, a son of Montjeu, and shares her page with champion performers Immortal Verse and Last Tycoon.
