SPAIN has an interesting new stallion prospect in Lightning Moon, who has been retired to Yeguada Torre Duero near Valladolid.

The five-year-old was trained by Ed Walker to win his first three starts, culminating in a head victory over Danzeno in the Group 3 Bengough Stakes at Ascot in 2014.

He was subsequently sold to Godolphin, but remained with Walker, and last year he finished a head second to Jack Dexter in the Listed Wentworth Stakes at Doncaster.

Lightning Moon is by Shamardal, sire of 18 Group/Grade 1 winners including successful young stallion Lope De Vega.

He was bred by Michael Collins out of the winning Peintre Celebre mare Catch The Moon, making him a half-brother to Listed scorer Song Of My Heart.

Lightning Moon will stand at Torre Duero at a fee of €2,500 alongside Abdel (€1,900) and Motarassed (€1,500).
