Black Type Mares On Offer at Tattersalls Mare Sale

Posted 29/11/2019

            We are selling two black type producing mares and one who achieved black type herself at next week's Tattersalls December Mares Sale. This is part of an overall restructuring towards a greater proportion of horses bred to race and a higher proportion of mares based in France in order to make the operation less reliant on the sales ring and better positioned to take advantage of the French prize money, which is so much higher than the UK, as well as the valuable owners and breeders premiums. 

            First up will be Redskin Dancer (Lot 1625) who is by Namid out of a Generous mare and she produced the tough and consistent seven time Listed winner and Group 3 placed Lincoln Rocks by Rock Of Gibraltar. Lincoln Rocks is now a broodmare herself and in foal to Churchill. Redskin's second foal is Kodiac filly Kiwiana who has raced once so far for N Clement in France and her third foal is a Kyllachy colt called International Lion who has won as a two year old for Richard Fahey in 2019. We have retained her fourth foal, a Territories colt and intend to race him in 2020.Redskin Dancer, producer of Listed winner & Group 3 placed Lincoln RocksRedskin Dancer, producer of Listed winner & Group 3 placed Lincoln Rocks

            Redskin Dancer was a smart 90 rated performer on the flat and has developed into an imposing, powerful looking mare. Whilst her two year old International Lion has won as a two year old, the offspring tend to need some time and will be better at three and four as was Lincoln Rocks. In 2018 she was not covered and in 2019 was covered once by Oasis Dream on March 2nd and is in foal.

You can read more detail on Redskin Dancer and her family under her tab in the Broodmares & Families tab. 

            Next up on the Wednesday will be German bred Irisijana (lot 1928) who is by Diktat out of a Rainbow Quest mare and was listed placed in her racing career. She has produced two winners including Jahaafel who was sold at the Arqana breeze up sale in 2017 for €400,000 and James Ortega Bloodstock will be racing his 2018 full brother in France next year. The other winner Irisijana has produced is Manduro mare Identity who is now a broodmare and recently had her own first winner when 2yo I Promised Myself won in Italy on her fourth outing by no less than six lengths despite being heavily eased towards the finish. Irisijana comes from a strong black type family with colt siblings Irian and Ibicenco both being Group 1 performers whilst half sister Inez has produced Group 3 winner and Group 1 placed Sceptre who herself is now a broodmare which is also the occupation of her three half sisters Stacey Sutton, Fortuities and Molly Mayhem. Besides Inez, Irisijana has four other half sisters who are broodmares themselves or have progeny who are broodmares which means that this top German family is likely to continue to produce stakes performers in abundance. Irisijana, black type placed and producer of two winners from three foals of racing ageIrisijana, black type placed and producer of two winners from three foals of racing age

            Finally the next lot (1929) will see Chicita Banana go through the ring. She is by Danehill Dancer out of a Night Shift mare and has produced three winners including listed placed Banana Split who is herself now a broodmare whose latest foal by Sea The Moon went through the sales ring this week and sold for 45,000 guineas. Banana Split also has a 2018 Showcasing filly to run for her in 2020 and has been covered by Intello. Chicita Banana also produced a Cape Cross mare (Dainty's Daughter) who is three quarters in blood related to Musidora Group 3 winner Joviality. Dainty's Daughter was unraced and is now a broodmare having produced a Dariyan filly in 2019 and covered by Lightning Spear in 2019. Chicita Banana's also produced Nathaniel colt Perfect Illusion who reached a rating of 88 and won three times when trained by Andrew Balding before being sold to race in Australia in 2019. She also has a 2018 Awtaad colt and a 2019 Bated Breath filly and is in foal to Charm Spirit.

            Chicita Banana is closely related to one of the outstanding newcomers of 2019 in Palace Pier who is out of a half sister (Beach Frolic) and is one of the favourites for next year's 2000 Guineas Classic races. Beach Frolic also has 2018 & 2019 colts by Camelot and Highland Reel on the way to race for her. Another half sister, The Madding Crowd, is also a broodmare so there is plenty of action going on under both Chicita Banana and her 1st dam Night Frolic.
