Silent Achiever has produced her second Frankel foal in England

Former top race mare Silent Achiever has produced her second Frankel foal in England, this time a colt.

The multiple Group One-winning mare is owned by Kevin Hickman, proprietor of New Zealand’s Valachi Downs Stud who sent her to England to be served to southern hemisphere time.

“He’s a strong, good-boned colt and just as impressive as his full-sister last year,” Valachi manager Jonathan Scully told NZ Racing Desk.

“We’re all absolutely rapt and Silent Achiever loves being a mum so that’s great.”

Trained by Roger James, Silent Achiever won 10 races, including the 2012 New Zealand Derby and the Ranvet Stakes-BMW weight-for-age double in Sydney in the autumn of 2014.

Hickman also has exciting prospects in Australia in the coming months with last year’s NZ 2000 Guineas winner Ugo Foscolo winning a 1000m-barrier trial at Rosehill by 8-3/4 lengths on Tuesday.

Formerly trained by Stephen Marsh, Ugo Foscolo is now with Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott in Sydney.

“I’ve been talking to Adrian and they put Blake Shinn on him and it was a nice trial over 1000 metres,” Scully said.

“He was under a good hold throughout so things are looking good. He’ll probably have another trial and then maybe kick off in a Group Two somewhere.

“He will be hanging around Sydney to see just how he does come up and then we’ll decide whether he goes down to Melbourne to have a go at Winx or not.”

Hickman also has high hopes for Ugo Foscolo’s stablemate Honfleur, a three-year-old half-sister by Fastnet Rock to Group One winners Shamrocker and Rock Diva.

“She’s had a couple of trials and they’ve seen enough in her to send her straight to Melbourne for her first start,” Scully said.
