ACHELOIS is by the top stallion, ZOFFANY, who won five races as a two-yearo ld including the Group One Phoenix Stakes and only had the mighty Frankel in front of him when second in the St. James’s Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot. ZOFFANY has been responsible for numerous Group performers, including this year’s brilliant two-year-old filly Albigna, who won the Group One Prix Marcel Boussac. Our filly’s dam, Fontley by the mighty Sadler’s Wells, won four times and was placed in several black-type races. Astromachia, this filly’s half-brother, is well above average; he won his third race a few days after we bought her. She is in training with Andrew Balding at his historic Park House Stables in Kingsclere.
