latest News on Blue Gum Farm
With five winners in the past four days, Blue Gum Farm shuttler Canford Cliffs (IRE) is riding the crest of a winning wave bringing his first crop tally to 14 winners in the Northern Hemisphere.
Royal Ascot hero Canford Cliffs sired two new winners at Maisons-Laffitte on Sunday in Al Jazi and Pitou with Justice Lass and Poplar Close following at Windsor and Musselburgh.
Overnight the winning run continued with an easy victory at Catterick for the Mick Channon trained filly Cuppatee. She strode clear to win the seven furlong contest by three and a half lengths.
Canford Cliffs will get the chance to add another stakes-winner to his record this weekend with his talented stakes-placed filly Bournemouth Belle set to take her place in the Group III Princess Margaret Juddmonte Stakes at Ascot.
A five-time Group I winner, Canford Cliffs returns to Blue Gum Farm at a fee of $13,750 and will have his first Australian runners in the new season.
Currently the leading First Season Sire in Europe by winners and second only to Zoffany on earnings, Canford Cliffs covered 83 mares in Australia last year.
Among those mares was Black Caviar and All Too Hard’s dam Helsinge, who is due to foal to the promising young sire later this spring.
