Affinity to be covered by Calyx

Affinity to be covered by Calyx

20 January 2021

Many of the stallion nominations for the Club broodmares have been confirmed for the upcoming breeding season, but the sad and untimely passing of Zoffany has led us to revise plans for our immaculately-bred mare, Affinity.

Once a winner over the middle-distances at three, the homebred Affinity is by the legendary Sadler's Wells and is a half-sister to the Club's five-time Group 1 winner, Soviet Song. She has bred a number of winners herself, including the Listed-placed and prolific winner, Zest.

Affinity is now scheduled to visit the young up-and-coming stallion, Calyx, who was a scintillating juvenile, winning the Group 2 Coventry Stakes in 2018. Although his first foals will arrive this season, he has a wonderful pedigree, being by the top-class miler-turned-top stallion, Kingman, and his dam's side of the family includes the Group 1-winning sprinter, African Rose.
