21 April

Saturday saw the Stud's first Group Win of 2012 when CASPAR NETSCHER won the Group 3 AON Greenham Stakes at Newbury with relative ease in sticky conditions. 

It was also the 80th Stakes win for descendants of Reprocolor following the success of Polish Knight (son of Polish Princess) in the Group 2 Tulloch Stakes in Australia.  He was subsequently second in the Australian Derby.
Polish Princess's dam, Repeat Warning, was also the dam of Suez (just beaten by short head in the Cheveley Park St Group 1) who herself is the dam of Lyric of Light - winner of the Fillies Mile.

Meon Valley Stud has bred the winners of 9 races in England so far this season.
