Blue Gum Farm shuttler Canford Cliffs sired his 29th individual juvenile winner in Europe this year when Wimpole Hall was successful in England on Thursday.

Wimpole Hall (2c Canford Cliffs – Sparkling Eyes by Lujain) had been placed in previous starts at Newmarket and Epsom and was the top-rated runner in the Tote Exacta Maiden Stakes (1200m) at Chelmsford.

The colt was a 65,000gns (AUD 126,240) buy at the 2014 Tattersalls October yearling sale and is a half-brother to winners by Piccolo and Royal Applause.

“He had some useful form in the book and I had been pleased with him at home,” trainer William Jarvis said.

“It was a competitive contest but I was sure he would go well.”

Canford Cliffs (Ire) is chasing the record for the most winners by a first-season stallion in Europe. Iffraaj set the current mark in 2010 when he sired 38 individual winners.

In Australia, Canford Cliffs has his first-crop two year-olds primed for the season ahead and Nagambie breeder Rick Jamieson reports he sired a “gorgeous” half-sister to Black Caviar at Gilgai Farm last week.

Blue Gum Farm stands Canford Cliffs for a fee of $13,750 (inc gst).
