Godolphin’s hitherto unraced Shadow Of Light (Ire) (Lope De Vega (Ire}–Winters Moon {Ire}, by New Approach {Ire}), a homebred three-parts brother to dual Group 1-winning sire Earthlight (Ire) (Shamardal), shed maiden status at the first attempt with a one-length victory in Thursday’s Weatherbys EBF Maiden Stakes at Great Yarmouth.

The 5-6 favourite broke on the front end and accepted a lead in fourth after the initial strides. Shaken up to launch his bid soon after passing the quarter-mile marker, he quickened to gain an edge passing the furlong pole and was ridden out to assert by a length from Ultrasoul (Ire) (Kingman {GB}).

Shadow Of Light is the fifth of seven foals and third scorer produced by G1 Fillies’ Mile third Winters Moon (Ire) (New Approach {Ire}), herself a half-sister to three stakes performers headed by G1 Prix Saint-Alary heroine Wavering (Ire) (Refuse To Bend {Ire}) and G1 Criterium de Saint-Cloud victor Mandaean (GB) (Manduro {Ger}). Winters Moon is a daughter of G3 Prix des Reservoirs victrix and G1 Prix Saint-Alary third Summertime Legacy (GB) (Darshaan {GB}). The February-foaled homebred chestnut is full to a weanling colt. He is also kin to G1 Prix Morny and G1 Middle Park Stakes-winning sire Earthlight (Ire) (Shamardal) and a yearling colt by Too Darn Hot (GB).
