Another piece of thinking outside the box is first season sires. There is one horse who will have his first crop of 2yos this year and he is the first of the progeny of Kittens Joy to stand in the UK. Bobby's Kitten was the first 3yo to win the Breeders Cup Turf Sprint. He had one race for Dermot Weld when hosing up at Cork four years ago. He must have had a problem as he ended up at Lanwades Stud. His first crop have sold quite cheap and Shadwell paid the highest, 65k, for a yearling out of the mare Mullein who won the Flying Fillies at Pontefract.
Kirsten Rausing who owns Lanwades Stud has kept a couple, both out of her mares, one is with Mark Johnston and the other Marcus Tregoning.
