A tiny first crop for this talented son of Kyllachy (by Pivotal), with six registered in his first crop and nine, so far, in his second. His first season was at Petches Farm in Essex and he moved to France after that. He is now at Haras des Trois Chapelles.
Supplicant won the Group 2 Mill Reef Stakes and Listed Ripon Champion Trophy, he was runner-up in the Listed Windsor Castle Stakes, and he is a full-brother to Penitent, winner of the Group 2 Bet365 Mile and Group 2 Joel Stakes and runner-up in the Group 1 Prix de la Foret.
The pair are among 11 winners out of two-time scorer Pious (by Bishop Of Cashel), a daughter of Group 3 Princess Margeret Stakes third La Cabrilla (by Carwhite). That mare was out of triple winner La Tuerta (by Hot Spark) and that made her a half-sister to Group 1 Nunthorpe Stakes dead-heater Ya Malak (by Fairy King).
La Tuerta is also the dam of Dominio (by Dominion), who won the Listed St Hugh’s Stakes and was second in the Group 2 Temple Stakes before going on to produce Group 2 King’s Stand Stakes heroine Dominica (by Alhaarth), and that speedy filly is also the ancestor of a string of blacktype winners, notably the Group 1 Cheveley Park Stakes-placed, pattern-winning pair Rimth (by Oasis Dream) and Kiyoshi (by Dubawi).
But what makes Supplicant an interesting member of the stallion ranks is that La Tuerta was out of Group 3 Temple Stakes winner Smarten Up (by Sharpen Up) and that made her a half-sister to Cadeaux Genereux (by Young Generation).
He won the Group 1 July Cup and Group 1 William Hill Sprint Championship (previously and since the Nunthorpe Stakes), he was third in the Group 1 Prix du Moulin de Longchamp, and went on to become a notably successful sire whose tally of 64 stakes winners featured eight who won at least once at the highest level.
Kyllachy’s handful of stallion sons include blacktype sire Dragon Pulse and popular Cheveley Park Stud resident Twilight Son whose first crop are foals. It will be interesting to see how Supplicant’s career turns out, and it would be no surprise to see him get at least one blacktype horse and among sprint and mile handicappers.
