The China Horse Club has moved quickly to secure a wonderfully credentialed filly that is bred to be a star. Our Sholokov s Monbijou filly is one of the best bred German yearlings to be offered for sale in Europe this year with her immediate family awash with stars.

CHC members will be given first right of refusal to buy into this wonderful Sholokov x Monbijou filly who is a full-sister to Mondami, German’s champion 2YO of 2011, and a half-sister to G1 Italian Oaks winner Meridiana. A filly of this standing not only comes with immense potential on the racetrack but has a genuine residual value when she retires to stud.

“This filly really caught my eye. She was my pick of the sale and I am delighted to be able to trainer her,” the China Horse Club’s French trainer, Nicolas Clement said.

Nicolas has an outstanding team of young thoroughbreds assembled for the China Horse Club with this team racing in and around Paris. The Sholokov x Monbijou filly will join this team as will an earlier purchase of Nicolas’, an Acclamation x Mystic Spirit colt, who is bred to hit the ground running early in 2014.

Nicolas has had another wonderful season in 2013 with a series of notable wins none more significant than Style Vendome’s win in the G1 Poule D’Essai Des Poulains (French 2000 Guineas). It is hoped the CHC’s team can share further success with him in 2014 and beyond.

The first of the CHC’s French based performers are only two and are spearheaded by Ming Zhi Cosmos, a gifted filly that won at only her second career start and has already run fourth in a stakes race from limited opportunities.

Ming Zhi Cosmos is one of three thoroughbreds in the Cosmos Syndicate that races out of France. All Cosmos Syndicate horses are trained out of the picturesque Chantilly (30 minutes north of Paris) by Nicolas. The other members of this syndicate include the handsome Red Cosmos and strapping Highsalvia Cosmos. These two colts are also two and are seen as staying prospects for the 2014 season and beyond.

Under Nicolas’ care are also two members of the Silk Road Syndicate, Jiayugian and Urumqi. Jiayugian is a beautiful chestnut filly that may well debut before the year is out. The strongly made Urumqi is expected to ‘come online’ in 2013 where he will excel as the races get longer.
