Stud Comments

Canford Cliffs was a Champion Racehorse. He showed amazing speed at two, demolishing his maiden field at Newbury by 7 lengths and following that performance up with a six length romp in the Group 2 Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot. That was the start of an amazing record at the prestigious Royal meeting.

At three Canford Cliffs proved dominant and was crowned Champion 3YO Miler in England and Ireland in 2010. After narrowly missing in the English Two Thousand Guineas, he easily won the Irish equivalent before renewing his affection with Royal Ascot, taking out the St James’ Palace Stakes. His final start as a three year old was against the older horses in the Sussex Stakes where he quickened impressively again to beat the previous year’s winner of the race Rip Van Winkle.

Canford Cliffs came back as a four year old to win the Lockinge Stakes first up before bettering World Champion Mare Goldikova in a memorable Queen Anne Stakes back at Royal Ascot. As a two, three and four year old he had effectively won his age group championship at probably the most important thoroughbred race meeting in the world! What turned out to be his last race start was in the 2011 Sussex Stakes. A promoter’s dream, Frankel up against Canford Cliffs! Unfortunately Canford Cliffs became sore in the race and it was sad to see him drifting to the outside rail up the Goodwood straight. Still, his amazing will to compete saw him finish second to Frankel but the overriding feeling of those present that day and watching on from afar was that injury had robbed them of one, if not the greatest contest of the year. Canford Cliffs was crowned European Champion Older Miler and rated Champion Older Miler in 2011 by both Timeform and World Rankings. With a timeform rating of 133, he rated superior to horses such as Dream Ahead, Excelebration, Rewilding, So You Think, Rocket Man, Workforce, Sepoy and Goldikova.

Canford Cliffs descends from the wonderfully successful Hail To Reason sire line, so prevalent in this part of the world through the likes of More Than Ready, Red Ransom and their sons. Canford Cliffs own sire, Tagula, was a top class 2YO as evidenced by his win in the time honoured Prix Morny (Gr1). At stud, Tagula is a renowned sire of 2YO winners and was Champion First Season sire in 2000. His sire, Taufan, was also a top class 2YO and Champion First Season sire before that. Apart from Canford Cliffs astonishing ability and amazing good looks, it was these facts that attracted Blue Gum Farm to him.

Canford Cliffs has kicked off his stud career producing 41 individual winners including Group Two Gain Railway Stakes winner Painted Cliffs, Group Three Grangecon Stud Stakes winner Most Beautiful and the stakes placed Bournemouth Belle.

Canford Cliffs second crop of Australian yearlings sold very well again this year with a colt fetching $250,000 at the Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale. Well represented with progeny in the stables of Mick Price, Robbie Laing, Paul Perry, Darren Wier, Mark Kavanagh, John Sadler, Lee Freedman, Robbie Griffiths, David Hayes etc.
