A documentary produced by Jimmy Lithgow on Byword(GB), an exciting new Group 1 winning stallion with a Timeform rating of 126, will be flighted on Tellytrack from tonight after the racing replays. It will be kept in the loop and repeated, as well as during the course of Wednesday between racing and continuing into the evening, until Friday.

Byword(GB) will be standing at Middlefield Stud in KZN for his first season in 2013.

Bred and previously owned by Juddmonte before being acquired by Rob Pickering and Ashley McNabb, the chestnut son of Peintre Celebre won the Gr 1 Prince Of Wales’ Stakes at Ascot where he went on to defeat a strong field by over a length (beating Twice Over at even weights), the Gr 2 Prix du Muguet at Saint-Cloud and the Gr 2 Prix Jacques Laffitte. He went on to place third in the Gr 1 Juddmonte International and second by just half a length to Goldikova in the Gr 2 Prix Foy and Gr 1 Prix d’Ispahan.

Byword defeated Twice Over by more than a length in the Gr 1 Prince Of Wales Stakes – Twice Over is a multiple Gr 1 winner, including winning the Juddmonte last year and placing fourth to Frankel in the same race last year. Byword has an outstanding race record, having 16 starts, 7 wins and 6 places, earning a staggering £699 385,00. He has had a Gr 1 win, two Gr 2 wins, a Gr 3 win and two Listed races from his seven starts. His places included two at Gr 1 level, three at Gr 2 and one at Gr 3. Racing until five years of age proves his soundness, toughness and grit to be so consistent.

Byword is by Gr 1 producing sire and sire-of-sires (as well as being the fastest ‘Arc’ winner ever), Peintre Celebre, out of Britain’s Broodmare Of The Year in 2010, Binche. She is by Woodman – in turn out of a Rainbow Quest mare.

Binche has been scheduled to be covered by Frankel in 2013. She is the dam of Proviso (by Dansili). Proviso has won nine races in France and the USA including the five Gr 1 wins and two Gr 3 wins in both continents. She placed seven times in seven Gr 1 races.
