Purebred Regally-Bred Family, Class I-Calibre Join Darley Roster

speaker corner (street feeling – Tyburn Brook, by Bernardini) and mystical guide (Ghostzapper – Music Note, by AP Indy), both Godolphin Award-winning crosses, have joined the Darley America stallion list for 2023.

The newcomers come from the impressive Godolphin family. Speaker’s Corner, who will require an initial investment fee of $20,000, is not the daughter of GI Breeders’ Cup Distaff Round Pond (Awesome Again) winner, while Mystic Guide, a ‘TDN’s Rising Star’ who will cost $15,000, is the son of a five-time Class I winner Music Note.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to have Mystic Guide and Speaker’s Corner join our ranks of steeds,” said Darren Fox, Director of Sales at Darley. “Speaker’s Corner is a horse that has been appreciated from the very beginning. In the pattern of so many street feelingsand street feeling He himself has a great mind. He wants to practice and is very straightforward. Mystic Guide is another person who has shown a lot of talent right from the start. [Trainer] Mike Stidham has appreciated this horse since the early days of the season at just 2 years old, so it’s gratifying to see him unleash the full potential and respect he’s had since early in his career.

Trained by Bill Mott, Speaker’s Corner broke his maidenhood as a minor at Belmont against a field of five future bet winners. He made two trips to the winner’s circle as a 3-year-old jockey, but then grew at four when he stepped back a mile. Gulf dominated in this year’s GIII Fred W. Hopper S. and GII Gulfstream Park Mile S. before claiming a special victory in the GI Carter H., where he won the 114 Beyer Speed ​​Figure. Also in 2022, Speaker’s Corner ranked third behind Flightline (faucet) and Life Is Good (Into Mischief) in GI Metropolitan H. and second to Life Is Good in GII John A. Nerud S. In 13 career starts, he has collected seven triple-digit Beyers.

In addition to the unbred Bernardini Tyburn Brook mare, Speaker’s Corner was bred on the same cross as Darley stallion and Class I winner. Maxfield. The street feeling-Bernadini mating also produces Godolphin’s MGSW Shared Sense.

Fox says that Speaker’s Corner reflects the best of both worlds in his pedigree.

“He has a good shoulder and good depth as we know and expect from him. street feeling and Street Cry (Ire) sire lines. He is a precise horse with many qualities to him and he has been extremely popular with breeders over the past few months.”

street feeling has been one of Darley America’s top stallions in recent years, but from his early crops, his first five Class I winners have all been ponies. Now, the residents of Jonabell Ranch have a chance to make their mark as a stag. For the past three years in a row, he has had another son who won the first prize for education. street feelingtop earners McKinzie stands at Gainesway Farm and will be represented by his first cubs in 2023, while Maxfield will see his first ponies next year when his schoolmate Speaker’s Corner begins his own stallion career.

Jonabell Farm’s other new resident Mystic Guide is a popular addition to Darley’s roster. Fox says that much of the G1 Dubai World Cup winner’s allure is in his elite racing pedigree.

Mystic Guide Music Note’s dam earned Class I wins in Mother Goose S., Coaching Club American Oaks and Gazelle S. at age 3, then added GI Ballerina S. and GI Beldame S. at four. AP Indy’s daughter is a half-sister to multiple First Class Musical Chimes (In Excess {Ire}) winners. Their second dam It’s In The Air (Mr. Prospector) is a stout 2-year-old champion and five-time Class I winner.

Fox explained: “It is rare to have a stallion that is the direct offspring of a mare of such an elite race. “A lot of times a stallion can be considered a no-win or unappreciated daughter of such a mare, but you don’t always get a stallion with a great record. Tu is the direct son of an elite mare. This woman’s family is so deep and really nothing but black lettering all over his genealogy page.”

On the track, Mystic Guide has followed in the footsteps of many talented performers on its pedigree page. He won the title of ‘TDN’s Rising Star’ in his second start at the age of 3 and later that year he claimed his first bet win in GII Jim Dandy. Also at the age of third, he finished less than a gap behind Happy Saver (Super Saver) in the GI Jockey Club Gold Cup S. and placed in GIII Peter Pan S. At the age of four, he won 108 Beyer in the previous GIII Razorback H. went on to win the G1 Dubai World Cup.

That win marked the ninth Dubai World Cup score for Godolphin, but the first earned from their US-based circuit. It is also the first winner outside of the United States for coach Michael Stidham.

Fox said: “The fact that Godolphin won the World Cup in Dubai with a thoroughbred horse and a horse shipped from the United States was all the more special. “This is the first time Michael Stidham has ridden a horse to transport Godolphin to Dubai, so it is all the more special when he leaves with a big win on his first try. Mystic Guide has made us proud at every step of his career and the Dubai World Cup is certainly the pinnacle of that.”

Fox added that he believes Mystic Guide has all the standards to replicate his own success on the track with his future generations of descendants.

“To be fair, the Mystic Guide was bred for evil purposes. Ghostzapper off an AP Indy mare, and it’s certainly fun to watch him on track. He has a very effective way of walking, a real chrysanthemum cut. He’s a big, flashy guy with good body length and a good hip to him. He definitely looks like he has all the attributes to be a top dirty gentleman.
