LAEL STABLES’ Roy and Gretchen Jackson have decided on a debut mating plan for their brilliant mare One Master, with the three-time 7f Prix de la Foret heroine set to visit Dubawi in 2021. The daughter of Fastnet Rock, who won seven of her 23 outings for the Jacksons and William Haggas, now resides at New England Stud in Newmarket alongside her own dam, the dual Group Three winner Enticing.
“One Master has settled very well and is turned out in a paddock, next to her dam Enticing, and is due to visit Dubawi in 2021,” said New England Stud manager Peter Stanley. “On the basis that she’s a uniquely brilliant filly, we feel that she deserves to go to the best stallion standing in the UK.” Dubawi, who will stand his fifth consecutive season at a fee of £250,000 at Darley’s Dalham Hall Stud next year, has sired a staggering 44 Group or Grade One winners, including the highest rated horse in the world this year, Ghaiyyath.
As well as her hat-trick of Prix de la Forets, One Master also won Goodwood’s Group 3 Oak Tree Stakes this year and the 2018 Group 3 Fairy Bridge Stakes at Tipperary. She brought the curtain down on her racing days when a close third behind Glen Shiel in the 6f British Champions Sprint Stakes. She amassed £939,644 in prize money and is the third generation of her family to be owned by Lael Stables, tracing back through Enticing to Superstar Leo, a daughter of College Chapel who defied a price tag of just 3,400gns when winning the Norfolk and Flying Childers Stakes.
The Jacksons have now called time on Superstar Leo’s breeding career, with the 18yo, bred by Lester Piggott and Anthony Hirschfeld, having left Newmarket to see out her deserved retirement at her owners’ Pennsylvanian farm alongside their other pensioned broodmares. “Her grandmother Superstar Leo flew to America earlier this year to spend her retirement at Mr and Mrs Jackson’s farm,” added Stanley. “It was quite something to have three Group winning relatives all alive and on the farm at the same time. How lucky are we!”
