The foundation mare at Iverk House Stud mare was Sheer Audacity, dam of Oath and bred by Max’s late wife Isabel. Unfortunately, Sheer Audacity died a couple of months after Isabel. Manieree was a grand daughter of Sheer Audacity out of the Caerleon mare, Sheer Spirit. We sadly lost Manieree after foaling her third foal, Merroir is out of Mozetta (Azamour), who was a grand daughter of Sheer Audacity being out of a Sadlers Wells half-sister to Sheer Spirit called Sheer Bliss. Sheer Chance was the last out of Sheer Bliss and she was not expected to get in foal, but she hated not being in foal, so she held her pregnancy. Hence the name. Late Harvest is the last out of Sheer Spirit, and a half sister to Manieree, she nearly died as a foal, and was unable to compete on the racecourse, hopefully will carry on the legacy that Isabel left. As a broodmare, she is in foal to Acclamation. Queen of Power, we bred and sold as a yearling and bought back as a three year old after she was injured at Royal Ascot. Her first foal was Garrus. She has a lovely Waldgeist filly who we hope to keep.
