DO HOLD YOUR BREATH...
Taken from Thoroughbred Daily News, 23rd July 2018. Article by Emma Berry:
It’s a tough order for a young stallion attempting to shine on the Juddmonte roster when up against the likes of FRANKEL and KINGMAN but BATED BREATH, by the recently pensioned DANSILI, is holding his own and has had some representatives of note in the last week.
The David Lanigan-trained Worth Waiting has been near faultless since starting her racing career last November and she has won in each of the last three months. She brought up her hat-trick on Saturday in the Aphrodite Stakes L. at Newmarket and the Whatton Manor Stud-bred filly could be seen next at Glorious Goodwood in the Gr.2 Lillie Langtry Stakes.
Juddmonte’s own juvenile Viadera also looks a filly with a bright future. Having won on debut for Ger Lyons at the Curragh at the end of June, the three-parts-sister to the Investec Blue Riband Trial winner Crossed Baton (DANSILI) then returned to chase home Marie’s Diamond for second in the Gr.3 Anglesey Stakes.
Another smart BATED BREATH two-year-old was seen in winning action for Roger Charlton at Newbury on Friday. Momkin, a fourth generation homebred for Prince Faisal’s Nawara Stud, is a great grandson of Rafha (Kris), the Gr.1 Prix de Diane winner who went on to produce the highly successful stallions Invincible Spirit and Kodiac.
