Mott gets Juddmonte's Deluxe, Aviate

In 2005, Khalid Abdullah’s Juddmonte Farms sent its superb broodmare Hasili (Ire) to America in part for the chance to breed her to Storm Cat. The resulting foal, French stakes winner Deluxe, will race in the U.S. in 2011.

Hasili was the reigning English Broodmare of the Year when she came to Juddmonte Farms in Lexington for two seasons, visiting Storm Cat first in 2006 and Empire Maker in 2007. The Kahyasi mare had already produced champions and Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf (G1) winners Banks Hill (GB) and Intercontinental (GB), Grade 1 winners Cacique (Ire) and Heat Haze (GB), and Group 2 winner and prominent European sire Dansili (GB). All were by Danehill, with the exception of Heat Haze, by Green Desert.


Danehill died in 2003, a few months after the dynamite combination produced one more eventual star in Champs Elysees (GB), a multiple Grade 1 winner and Canadian of the Year for 2009.


Deluxe was born at the Lexington farm in February 2007, and she returned there this winter for a break before joining Racing Hall of Fame trainer Bill Mott’s division in Florida.
