Bay 2011 15 31/2HH
Cable Bay, the impeccably bred son of Invincible Spirit and highest-rated 2YO at stud in the UK and Ireland offers a pedigree that is highly sort after by Australian breeders.
Cable Bay stands at the renowned Highclere Stud in the UK, where he has been the most popular first season sire in the UK in 2016 covering 152 quality mares and the most popular second season sire in the UK in 2017 covering 165 quality mares.
Having served an exceptional book of handpicked mares that have both performed on the track and been proven to produce, Cable Bay has been given a significant head start to succeed. More than 25% of the mares he covered were stakes winners or stakes performers, including a full-sister to All Too Hard, and a half-sister to Black Caviar.
Breeding to him in his second season, mare owners can take advantage of this wonderful kick start, as they will be selling his progeny off the back of his exceptionally well-bred first crop hitting the track in their 2YO season.
Eagerly anticipating his first foals on the ground, breeders can be confident in the continued support, commitment, and investment of quality mares in the young stallion to maximise future sales and racing success.
Cable Bay will be represented with his first yearlings at the Goffs Premier Yearling Sale on August 28-29 this year. Ex-Magic Millions bloodstock leader, Tony Williams, now Managing Director of Goffs UK describes the Cable Bay’s progeny as “precocious looking athletes that are packed with strength and quality and I am confident they will be well suited to Australian conditions.”
With progeny in all the early yearling sales this season in Europe, the precociousness of Cable Bay’s stock should see trainers aiming to debut them on the race track in early 2019. In the Southern Hemisphere, we eagerly await the first crop of foals from mares all hand picked by one of Australia’s leading breeders, Gilgai Farm’s Rick Jamieson.
Cable Bay has an exceptional stallion pedigree with his grand-dam, Champion mare Cherokee Rose (Dancing Brave), winner of the G1 Haydock Sprint Cup and G1 Prix Maurice de Gheest. Cherokee Rose is a half-sister to Volksraad an 8-time Champion Sire in New Zealand.
“To achieve the superior results, the intention is to accept mares with the correct pedigree pattern, that will give the mare owner and Cable Bay a 7-10 times better chance of success compared to current averages”. Rick Jamieson, Gilgai Farm.
One of the fastest 2YOs ever by champion sire of sires Invincible Spirit, Cable Bay was a tough, precocious juvenile who started in five consecutive Group races as a 2YO and was consistently one length of the winner in each.
Winning the G2 Challenge Stakes and the G3 Jury Stakes, Cable Bay was a gallant runner up in the G1 Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket. Touted as the Northern Hemisphere’s best 2YO race, he recorded a faster time than Champions Frankel, Shamardal, Nijinsky, Mill Reef, Teofilo, Rock Of Gibraltar and The Minstrel.
