Amadeus Wolf trio aiming for Royal Ascot

Chatswood Stud shuttler Amadeus Wolf continued his marvellous run this year when Church Music won on debut at York on Friday.

Church Music (2c Amadeus Wolf – Cappella by College Chapel) raced right away from his rivals in the Acturis EBF Maiden Stakes (1000m).  Amadeus Wolf has now sired 7 winners from his first-crop conceived at the Irish National Stud.

Church Music was bred by Ellen Lyons and is raced by John Fretwell who bought him for 42,000 pounds at the 2010 Doncaster Bloodstock yearling sale.  The colt is trained by Kevin Ryan who prepared his sire to win the G1 Middle Park Stakes.

Ryan also trains Amadeus Wolf winner Hamza who holds an entry for the Windsor Castle Stakes at Royal Ascot on Tuesday.  Another Amadeus Wolf entry for the Listed event is the Richard Hannon trained colt Wolfgang.  He is a last-start winner at Chepstow.

Barolo Top is the third Amadeus Wolf youngster nominated for Royal Ascot.  The Tom Dascombe trained colt won at Haydock last Thursday and has been nominated to butter up in the G2 Coventry Stakes on Tuesday.

Amadeus Wolf is by Danehill’s ill-fated son Mozart who was a G1 winner of the July Cup and Nunthorpe Stakes plus the G3 Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Amadeus Wolf was his best by far and was straight out of the blocks winning on debut at Ayr in May 2005.  He stepped up to stakes company to win the prestigious G2 Gimcrack Stakes at York’s Ebor Festival and then graduated to a G1 in the Middle Park Stakes at Newmarket.

Amadeus Wolf produced arguably his finest performance as a four year-old with an awesome victory in the 2007 G2 Duke of York Stakes from Red Clubs and Soldier’s Tale.

A month later, Soldier’s Tale defeated Takeover Target in a thrilling finish to the G1 Golden Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Amadeus Wolf stood his first southern season for an $11,000 fee at Chatswood Stud last year.
