Pedigree: Lawman (FR) ex Kalandara (IRE)
This colt was on probably on the very top end of our budget for yearlings, but we couldn't leave him on the shelf when once we had seen him. He was purchased by Mark at Tattersalls Yearling Sales From Book 2. He has near perfect conformation and an exceptional pedigree as he is the full brother to Luminate the Group 3 winner. Luminate is trained in France by Freddy Head, she had an unbeaten 2-year-old career winning the Prix de Conde (G3) at Chantilly. She backed that up with a win in the Prix Penelope (G3) at the start of her 3-year-old season and is one of the highest rated horses Her sire Lawman has produced.
Lawman has bee a stalwart at stud since he retired over 10 years ago. He earned his place at stud winning multiple Group 1's in his native France. The highlight of his career was winning the French Derby, the Prix du Jockey Club (G1) beating an impressive field by over a length. After his Classic win, he went back to Chantilly and won the Prix Jean Prat (G1) beating 2 other Classic winners from his generation. Lawman's Progeny fetch an average of over £48,000 with his most expensive yearling this year selling for over £500,000. He has earned these impressive numbers with a consistent string of quality horses. His most notable being, Marcel, Most Improved, Harbour Law, Forest Ranger, Just TheJudge and of course Luminate. Lawman was responsible for 15 back type winner in 2018 alone. 3 of his sons now stand at stud themselves, Marcel, Most Improved and Harbour Law.
Kalandara was a modest racehorse for Sir Michael Stoute, she never managed to break her maiden. She is by the famous American sire Rainbow Quest from a very well bred family of Aga Khan horses. She is a half-sister to 3 black type winners including Kalanisi, the winner of the Dubai Champions Stakes (G1) and the Breeders Cup Turf (G1). Kalandara has found much more success as a mare especially with her recent progeny. Luminate is the best horse she has produced with an OR of 110.
The Lawman, Rainbow Quest combination has worked very well in the past, with Just The Judge, Rocket Fly and Luminate bred on the same cross. This is a really exciting colt for next year with plenty of scope to be a really top performer.
