Sire of the 2019 Gr.1 Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint winner Belvoir Bay and 3-time Gr.1 sprinter The Tin Man.
The Newsells Park Stud bred Mogul was an impressive winner of the Gr.1 Juddmonte Grand Prix de Paris at Longchamp today, a race won by his full-brother in 2019.
Taking the lead in the home straight the three-year-old pulled nicely clear of this strong field to win by two and a half lengths for owners Michael Tabor, Derrick Smith and Mrs John Magnier.
Trainer Aidan O’Brien said: “He’s been showing so much speed I thought we might be going the wrong way and maybe we should be going back to a mile and a quarter. He’s obviously a fast horse and he’s able to quicken.
“Mogul is in the Arc, but there’s Australia and there’s the Champion Stakes, so he doesn’t have to go. We were thinking of going back to a mile and a quarter. He could go to America, he could go to Hong Kong, so there’s a lot of options for him. He’s in the Caulfield Cup and the Cox Plate.”
Earlier this year Mogul won the Gr.3 John Pearce Racing Gordon Stakes, and last season won the Gr.2 KPMG Champions Juvenile Stakes at Leopardstown.
Mogul is a Galileo full-brother to dual Gr.1 winner Japan out of the fantastic Newsells Park Stud mare Shastye, also the dam of the Gr.2 Middleton Stakes winner and multiple Gr.1/Classic placed Secret Gesture, Gr.3 International Stakes winner Sir Isaac Newton and Australian Stakes winner Maurus. Mogul was consigned by Newsells Park Stud at Tattersalls October Yearling Sale Book 1 selling to MV Magnier for 3,400,000gns.
Mogul’s full-sister is offered in the 2020 Newsells Park Stud yearling consignment at Tattersalls October Yearling Sale Book 1 as Lot 436. In addition, a colt out of Secret Sense (Shamardal), a half-sister to Mogul, Japan and Secret Gesture, is also consigned by Newsells Park Stud at Tattersalls October Book 1 as Lot 424.
