Luminate (IRE)

This beautiful daughter of top sire Lawman looks very like our own Chartreuse who Freddy Head has trained brilliantly to win a Listed race and be multiple Group placed. She too, therefore, will be trained by Freddy where hopefully lightning will strike twice!   She is beautifully bred being out of the Rainbow Quest mare Kalandara who was a half-sister to the great Kalanisi who won the Breeders’ Cup Turf (Gr1) and the Dubai Champion Stakes (Gr1), amassing over £1.3 million in prize money. This, therefore, is one of the Aga Khan’s great families and to have bought her for only 85,000 euros is incredibly exciting. Another key reason why we were interested in buying her was because she is a half-sister to Paradise Lake a son of Siyouni, who John paid 320,000 guineas for as a yearling last year.  Owned by Bermuda Thoroughbred Racing that we manage for Simon Scupham, he is trained by Sir Michael Stoute and is very well regarded so he could well increase this fillies value significantly. She is a scopey filly with great presence and she moves beautifully so there are ticks in all the boxes!

Luminate was unbeaten at two, including a win in a Group 3 contest. She continued that excellent winning form on her first start at 3 winning the Prix Penelope G3 at Saint-Cloud. She was desperately unlucky next time in her prep run for the Prix de Diane and was subsequently disappointing in that contest. Freddy will look to freshen her up and continue her exciting campaign, culminating with a crack at the Prix Vermaille at Longchamp in September.
