Dual Group 1 winner Fascinating Rock has had his first mare tested in foal.
Lady Livius owned by Ballylinch Stud is the mare confirmed in foal. A Weatherbys Super Sprint winner at 2 and the dam of two Group winning 2yo’s Brown Sugar and Burnt Sugar, Lady Livius has contributed greatly to Lope de Vega’s first season at stud as Burnt Sugar was his sires first stakes winner when he won the Group 3 Sirenia Stakes.
Managing Director of Ballylinch Stud, John O’Connor said “We are committing some very nice mares to Fascinating Rock in his first season at stud and Lady Livius is certainly one of them. Maurice Regan and Newtown Anner Stud have already shown their support for him at the sales and breeders have been quick to pick up on this and send their mares to Fascinating Rock.”
Fascinating Rock is a dual Group 1 winner as well as a Stakes winner over a mile. The highest rated son of International sire Fastnet Rock stands his first season at stud in Ballylinch for €10,000.
