THIS year Kildangan Stud has a new young stallion who should make great appeal to any breeder looking for speed and precocity.

Earthlight, a son of Shamardal, was the unbeaten champion two-year-old in France in 2019 and was one of the three best juveniles in Europe that season, winning all his five starts, two of them at Group 1 level. Then, in his second season, he won twice more, including a group race over seven furlongs at Deauville, and was in the frame in his other two starts, both Group 1 status.
