The first foals by dual-purpose stallion and Shade Oak Stud resident Telescope have hit the ground in recent weeks.
Among those born already are a colt out of the Grade 3-winning chaser and hurdler Laetitia. Bred by Bryan Mayoh, he is pictured below.
Other colts to have arrived recently are out of Becky B, a daughter of Grade 1-winning hurdler Lady Rebecca, and Desert Fairy, the dam of Miss Cato and Regal Monarch.
Another of his foals to be born include a filly out of Ancora (below), an Accordion half-sister to Carlingford Lough and Thisthatandtother.
Thoroughbred Breeders' Association Elite Mare Unika La Reconce, a winning daughter of Robin Des Champs, delivered this filly by the son of Galileo.
Other fillies by Telescope born recently include the first foals out of the high-class racemares Pepite Rose and Molly's A Diva. La Doelenaise, a half-sister to Irish Gold Cup winner Sizing John has also delivered a filly by the seven-year-old.
Shade Oak Stud owner Peter Hockenhull is delighted with the new arrivals and said: "We're delighted that Telescope seems to be passing on his own good looks and outstanding quality to his foals.
"All those I have seen are correct, strong and good-looking, with a bold, confident temperament that augurs well for them as racehorses."
