Tamayuz conformation

Meanwhile, the well-related, dual Group 1 winner Tamayuz continues to get top-class horses at an affordable fee and his yearlings remain popular at the sales, fetching up to 100,000gns in 2016. Already sire of 23 Stakes performers from his first four crops, his principal winners to date include the Champion 3yo Sprinter G Force; the Group 2 winning 2yo and Leading First Crop Sire, Sir Prancealot, as well as this year’s Group 2 Topkapi Trophy winner, Blond Me and Group 3 Killavullan Stakes winner, Making Light.

Following the latter’s impressive performance in beating the colts at Leopardstown, her trainer Dermot Weld enthused: ‘We‘ll head to the Classic trials next year… she’s a lovely filly and won that easily.’ For a man not given to hyperbole, that comes as a ringing endorsement of her potential.
