JUDDMONTE has purchased the dam of State Of Rest from breeders Dermot Cantillon and Meta Osborne of Tinnakill House in Mountrath, Co Laois.

The 10-year-old mare Repose is also the dam of recent Group 3 winner Tranquil Lady, and there are her only two foals to race to-date. By Quiet American out of a listed winner, Repose is in foal to Frankel.

State Of Rest has won three Group 1/Grade 1 races on three continents on his latest three starts. Trained by Joseph O'Brien, the four-year-old is due to run in the Tattersalls Gold Cup at the Curragh on Sunday.

O'Brien also trains the three-year-old Tranquil Lady, who is on course for the Oaks at Epsom in a fortnight's time.

A statement from Tinnakill House said: “We are delighted to announce that Juddmonte have purchased Repose, the dam of Tinnakill bred multiple Group 1 winner State of Rest and Oaks contender Tranquil Lady.

“Repose, a Tinnakill homebred, has given great joy to our family and her success is a testament to the hard work of Ian Thompson and the whole team at Tinnakill.

“We are delighted to entrust Repose to our friends at Juddmonte where we have no doubt she will continue to flourish for years to come with access to the world’s best stallions.

“What began as a retained homebred filly has turned into an amazing journey seeing her blossom into one of the world’s most promising broodmares, nurtured throughout on our family farm in Laois.

“We have retained her Sea The Stars filly foal and we look forward to cheering her progeny for years to come."
