Yes Yes Yes headlines the new crop of stallions at Coolmore in the Hunter Valley

Yes Yes Yes was truly outstanding in taking out the weight-for-age $14m The Everest of 1200m against older competitors, in a record time of 1-07.32min.

“He could be an international, dual-hemisphere stallion now,” said champion trainer Chris Waller. “His stud value is through the roof.”

In winning the world’s richest turf sprint, Yes Yes Yes retires to Coolmore in the Hunter Valley having won four of his eight starts, three seconds, and the winner of over $7.1m in stakes.

In being the only 3yo in The Everest, the ever confident Glen Boss had Yes Yes Yes coming well off the pace in tracking the seasoned sprinters Sunlight, Redzel and Nature Strip into the home straight.

Making his run at the 350m mark, and reaching the lead by the 100m, he comfortably held-off the multi Gr1 sprinter Santa Ana Lane by ½ length, with Stradbroke Handicap winner Trekking third.

Yes Yes Yes was coming off a neck second to Bivouac in the Golden Rose, having also finished second to him in the Run to The Rose, with Coolmore Stud Stakes winner Exceedance third on both occasions.

Originally trained by Darren Weir, he first won over 1100m at Flemington, then defeated Bellevue Hill in the Todman Stakes of 1200m and seventh in Kiamichi’s Golden Slipper on a heavy rated track.

By the 2019-20 Australian Champion Sire of 3YO’s Rubik, Yes Yes Yes now stands beside his Schillaci Stakes winning sire at Coolmore Stud, and is a grandson of Coolmore legendary Encosta de Lago.

Also as last season’s Leading Second Season Sire, Rubick currently sits high on the Leading Third Season Sire and Leading Sire of 3YOs rankings.

A $200,000 buy at the 2018 Magic Million Gold Coast Yearling Sale, Yes Yes Yes is from the winning Fantastic Light mare Sin Sin Sin, and is half-brother to stakes placed winner Dee Nine Elle.

This is the immediate family of In Her Time, the qual leading Older Female on the 2018 Sprint WTR and recent $2m broodmare buy, Hot As Hell, Flaming Hot and Craig’s Dragon.

Also new this season is the 2000 Guineas winner Magna Grecia, who is described by James Wigan as “a very well-balanced horse, he’s got class about him, he’s got substance – just fills the eye.”

In winning the 2000 Guineas over 1 mile at Newmarket first up at three years, Magna Gracia defeated Gr1 winner King of Change and went onto be crowned Champion Irish 3YO Miler with a 120 WTR.

Previously at two-years he won the Vertem Futurity Trophy of 1 mile, placed second in the Autumn Stakes to French 2,000 Guineas winner Persian King and previously won a Naas 7f maiden on debut.

A bay standing 16.0½hh, Magna Grecia is by the highly successful Invincible Spirit, who has also sired the classic winners Kingman and Lawman, plus I’m Invincible and Yosei in Australia.

He is the second winner of Gr3 winning 2yo Galileo mare Cabaret, who is half-sister Gr3 winner Drumfire and stakes winner Ho Choi, from the winning stakes placed grandam Witch of Fife.

This is the immediate family of top Irish filly in Ugo Fire, Hollywood Turf Cup winning sire Frenchpark and Gr1 winner Pearly Shells.

Also with Calyx standing in the Hunter Valley, Coolmore have read the market with Frankie Dettori stating “that natural ability that he’s got – not many 2yo’s ever have that.”

The fastest son of his sire Kingman, Calyx won as a 2yo on debut over 6 furlongs by 5 lengths at Newmarket, then won the Coventry Stakes 6f at Royal Ascot in defeating triple Gr1 winner Advertise.

At three Calyx won first up in Commonwealth Cup Trial Stakes of 7 furlongs, before being injured again when second in the Sandy Lane Stakes at Haydock. He retired with a 124 Timeform rating.

In being the first winner sired by Kingman, the multiple Gr1 Irish 2000 Guineas winner and the best son of Invincible Spirit, Calyx is the fastest and most precocious son of his sire with a 120 Timeform.

Calyx joined French 2000 Guineas winner Persian King and German 2000 Guineas winner Fearless King in being from Kingman’s first crop, with Palace Pier winning the St James’s Palace Stakes.

A bay standing 15.3hh, Calyx is from the Gr3 winning Observatory mare Helleborine, herself a full-sister to top 3yo French sprinter African Rose, the dam of Gr3 winning Fair Eva.

This is the immediate family of Dewhurst Stakes winner Distant Music and Vanlandingham, the Champion Older US Horse in 1985.
