1st Foals For Le Bec Fin

Monday, 19th September 2005

Meanwhile NZ 1st season sire Le Bec Fin (Tale Of The Cat-Romanee Conti, by Sir Tristram) has his 1st 4 foals on the ground. Mark Baker at Hallmark Stud told NZ Thoroughbred Marketing: "We are thrilled with his foals so far. They are all scopey, athletic foals & all very correct. The 1st foal was a filly out of Far Niente (by Daggers Drawn) & we have since had colts from Champagne Bubble (by Desert Sun), Helen's Song (by Desert Sun) & Te Akau Secret (by Lord Ballina)." Le Bec Fin (whose dam Romanee Conti won the Gr1 Hong Kong Cup) is a half-brother to Gr1 Caulfield-Gr1 Melbourne Cups winner Ethereal; & Romanee Conti's half-sister Grand Echezeaux (by Zabeel) is the dam of last season's NZ champion 2YO Darci Brahma.
