Recent Quality Foalings
12 Sep 2006 Fillies by Red Ransom and No Excuse Needed and a colt by Rock Of Gibraltar are among the latest foalings for Pencarrow Stud.
A bay filly by champion sire Red Ransom from Gr II Cambridge Dulcie Stakes winner Christiania Belle was born on September 3.
Descending from one of Pencarrow Stud's foundation mares, Heidi Belle, Christiania Belle is the dam of Gr II Hawkes Bay Gold Trail Stakes winner Zino Belle and therefore grandam of the talented Elbaz Belle.
Christiania Belle is from Heidi Belle's daughter, Finezza Belle (by Sir Tristram), whose five wins included the Gr II QTC Grand Prix Stakes, Gr III Sir Byrne Hart Stakes and Gr III Hawkes Bay Cup and among her placings was a second in the Gr I Queensland Oaks and a third in the Gr I Queensland Derby.
Three days earlier Twafeag (by Topsider), one of the band of in-foal Danehill mares bought by Pencarrow Stud a few years ago, produced a bay filly by No Excuse Needed.
Twafeag, who won the Gr I Curragh Moyglare Stud Stakes and was also a group three winner in France, is from Billy Sue's Rib (13 wins), a nine-time Listed winner.
A day after the birth of the Red Ransom - Christiania Belle filly, Pencarrow Stud announced the arrival of a chestnut colt by Rock Of Gibraltar from Cheerful (by Star Way).
Cheerful won seven races, including the Gr III WRC Cuddle Stakes, and is from the family of the Gr I AJC Oaks winner La Souvronne.
