First foal for Canford Cliffs

Canford Cliffs conformation

Canford Cliffs’ first foal was born last Wednesday morning when Gigginstown House Stud’s Smartest (Exceed And Excel) produced a bay colt at Lynn Lodge Stud. Eddie O’Leary described the foal as: “a really good, strong colt with plenty of quality and a great colour.”

Canford Cliffs won the Coventry Stakes-Gr.2 by six lengths at a two-year-old and went on to notch up five Group 1 successes over a mile which included victories over Rip Van Winkle in the Sussex Stakes-Gr.1 and over Goldikova in the Queen Anne Stakes-Gr.1.
