Greenacres Stud


Racing Stallion :   Ela - Mana - Mou



Ela - Mana - Mou born 1976 was probably one of the bargains of the 20th Century . He cost only  4,500 gns. as a yearling , but when he retired as a 4 yr old he had won 10 of his 16 races collecting £286,581 in prize money .

This was not all for the same owners though, as he was bought by the partnership of Tim Rogers and the Weinstock family for a reputed £500,000 after his second season.

He won 4 out of 5 of his juvenile starts and as a 3 year old came a creditable fourth in the Epsom Derby.

  He also had a decisive victory in the King Edward V I I  Stakes at Ascot. His purchase by his new owners the following winter paid off in real style.

Ela - Mana - Mou began by winning the Earl of Sefton Stakes at Newmarket , then the prince of Wales's Stakes at Ascot , before gaining the 2 most important successes of his career . He captured the Eclipse by three quarters of a length from Hello Gorgeous and won the King George V1 and Queen Elizabeth Stakes by the same three quarters of a length from Mrs Penny . He also finished third in the Prix de L'Arc de Triomphe .

He went to stud at the end of that season and sired top winners like Double Trigger and his brother Double Eclipse , Snurge and Eurobird.

He is an unqualified influence for stamina , transmitting characteristics passed down by the likes of Alycidon . What is clearly evident is that Ela - Mana - Mou is capable of siring horses that stay considerably further than the  6 to 12 furlongs that he used to race over , with a significant concentration of Cup , Classic and staying Stakes winners. Of a sample of 242 winning performances of Ela - Mana - Mou's progenies , 151 won at 11 furlongs or more , 138 have won at 12 furlongs or more and no less than 80  have won over 14 furlongs or more.
