The five-year-old Harbour Watch mare Bayards Cove is offered for sale as a breeding prospect at £3,000 ONO plus VAT. She is in foal to Pearl Secret, with a last scan date of 9th February.
Bayards Cove was lightly-raced at two and three, before placing twice at up to seven-furlongs as a four-year-old in 2019. She is now ready to embark on life as a broodmare and looks suitably well-related to become a success at her second career.
Her winning dam Acicula has produced seven winners, most notably the very swift Elnawin, who won six times including the Grp-3 Sirenia Stakes as a two-year-old and the Listed Cathedral Stakes as a five-year-old. Her other notable offspring include the seven-time winning and formerly 100-rated sprinter Normal Equilibrium and the 10-time scorer Elna Bright, who reached a peak mark of 95.
Acicula is herself one of six winners out of the successful Kris mare Crystal City, whose dam Untold won the Grp-1 Yorkshire Oaks - as did her sibling Sally Brown.
Bayards Cove's sire Harbour Watch won the Grp-2 Richmond Stakes at Glorious Goodwood for trainer Richard Hannon Senior and retired unbeaten. As a stallion he is responsible for numerous high-class performers, such as the Grp-1 winner Waikuku and the Grp-2 winner Tis Marvellous, whilst his son Pyledriver memorably landed the Grp-2 King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot last month.
Bayards Cove has been matched with Pearl Secret, winner of the Grp-2 Temple Stakes and placed in Grp-1 company, before retiring to stud ahead of the 2017 covering season.
His first crop runners have begun to emerge in recent weeks, and he struck with Disco Beats at Musselburgh in early July. Other promising runners for the sire include Mr Ryder - placed on debut at Newcastle - and Spanish Hustle - placed on debut at Ripon.
Bayards Cove is an attractive young mare with a bright breeding future ahead of her. She looks extremely competitively priced, particularly as she is carrying an exciting unborn foal; please get in touch for more details.
