Night Of Thunder's superb season goes from strength to strength

With more three-year-old winners than any other European stallion and a superstar juvenile, it truly was a flaming June for this outstanding sire

Night Of Thunder has been enjoying a superb season with his current three-year-old crop, siring an unrivalled 47 winners at a strike rate of 50%, 20 of which have come in June alone.

Bright Thunder was the latest, landing the Listed Prix de Bagatelle at Chantilly on Saturday, while Bur Dubai's nine-and-a-half-length romp at Chester on the same day was described as 'an impressive a handicap winner as there has been all season' by the Racing Post.

Ombudsman could be another exciting prospect for his sire, winning on debut at Newmarket. He is from the same stable as the unbeaten Rainbows Edge who looks certain to improve further.

Night Of Thunder is also sire of the dominant Dante winner Economics, who will now head to either the G1 Juddmonte International or the G1 Irish Champion Stakes, plus G2 winner and French Guineas third Vespertilio.

His success is not confined to three-year-olds however, with sensational Albany winner Fairy Godmother now rated higher by Timeform than any juvenile colt.
