Juddmonte Farms has announced the mating plans for some of its highest profile European broodmares for 2019.
Juddmonte will be supporting its newest addition to the stallion roster, Breeders’ Cup winner Expert Eye, with 12 mares, eight of which are blacktype performers or producers. They include the G3 winner Mirabilis (dam of Monarchs Glen) and listed winners Entree, Emergency and Zaminast (herself a half-sister to Group winners Famous Name and Big Break).
Seven of the mares have already produced 2-year-old winners, including Lilyfire (dam of 2018 Duchess Of Cambridge Stakes G2 third Chaleur) and Ombre (the dam of dual Group-placed 2-year-old Gavota).
As has been the case throughout his career, Juddmonte is supporting Kingman with a top-class group of mares – including the G1 winners/producers African Rose (dam of Fair Eva), Promising Lead, Proviso, Ventura, and Winter Sunrise (dam of Winsili).
