SIRE: LAVERY

Lavery is still to make his mark as a sire and one feels that it wont bee too long before this Irish bred horse produces something special .

Standing at Heversham Park Stud in Gauteng his stud fee is a mere R5.000.

As a racehorse he won a total of six races in England, Ireland and South Africa. His wins were restricted to the distance of 1200m.

At two years old he won the Grade 1 Heinz `57` Phoenix Stakes at Curragh.

At three he won the Tote Shergar Cup Sprint at Ascot.

As a five year old in this country his most notable achievements were in two Grade 1 sprints, namely the Cape Flying Championship over 1000m at Kenilworth and the Mercury Sprint at Clairwood over his favoured distance of 1200m. In both races he finished behind Jet Master, which in itself, was no mean feat.

The most notable progeny to date is Silent Screen.

Lavery is a son of Royal Academy, who won amongst others the Grade 1 Breeders Cup Mile at Belmont Park in Kentucky (USA) and the Grade 1 July Sprint over 1200m at Newmarket (UK).

On the dam side Lady Donna only raced as a two year old where she won one race and managed a third place in the Grade 3 Molecomb Stakes at Goodwood (UK) over 1000m.
