Nominations are available to Chapel Stud's proven pattern-producing sire Hellvelyn. The sire will stand the 2020 season at £3,000 1st Oct LFFR.
Hellvelyn won five of his 13 starts, including the Grp-2 Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot as a two-year-old and the Listed Beverley Bullet as a three-year-old, defeating multiple Grp-1 winner Borderlescott in the process.
After a spell in the US, Hellvelyn began his covering career in the 2011 season and has remained a constant source of quality offspring despite fluctuating numbers of mares to cover.
His first crop featured the Grp-3 Molecomb Stakes runner-up Bonnie Grey, and then the Grp-3 Dick Poole Stakes heroine and Grp-1 Commonwealth Cup fourth La Rioja emerged from his second.
Perhaps his most notable progeny to date, however, has been the electric Mrs Danvers, who won five out of five as a two-year-old in 2016, including the Grp-3 Cornwallis Stakes, the Listed St Hugh's Stakes and the lucrative Weatherbys Super Sprint. There was no slowing Hellvelyn's progress in 2019 with Hells Babe adding to her winning tally and also taking third in the Grp-3 Fairy Bridge Stakes (just half a length behind the Grp-1 winner Skitter Skatter).
Despite having never stood at a fee above £3,000, Hellvelyn's proven ability to produce Stakes horses has ensured that his progeny continue to prove popular in the sales ring.
Just over a year ago his Listed-placed daughter Hellofahaste auctioned for 100,000gns at the Tattersalls December Mare Sale, whilst in 2017 his son Ardenode realised £300,000 following a victory in the Listed Prix La Fleche. In addition to this his yearlings and breezers have auctioned for figures such as £75,000, €75,000 and £60,000 in recent years.
Few sires operating at this sort of level can boast such figures, and Hellvelyn remains at the peak of his powers. Inspired by the success of Mrs Danvers, Hellvelyn's best crops are still to come. It remains an excellent time to invest in the services of a sire who boasts a 6% black-type two-year-old winners to runners ratio.
