UK Cheveley Park To Stand Mayson
Newmarket's prominent UK Cheveley Park Stud "has purchased a major share in last month's impressive July Cup winner" reports racingpost.com, and will join its stallion roster in 2013 at the completion of his racing career this year. Mayson (Invincible Spirit-Mayleaf, by Pivotal) will next start in the Haydock Sprint Cup before potentially progressing to the Nunthorpe Stakes. Chris Richardson, managing director of Cheveley Park Stud, enthused: "Mr. and Mrs Thompson [owners] are delighted to secure the future of Mayson for British breeders; he complements Cheveley Park Stud's highly proven and commercial portfolio of stallions in every way." Currently topping the sprinter rankings for 2012, Mayson is aiming to emulate the win of his sire in the Haydock Sprint Cup, a race also won by multiple Champion Stallion Danehill. Invincible Spirit is on a hot streak at present with daughter Moonlight Cloud (ex Ventura, by Spectrum) winning the Gr1 Prix Maurice de Gheest. Mayson already has strong links to Cheveley Park Stud via his dam, who is by their longstanding sire Pivotal.
