A half sister to Ascot Stud’s blue blooded young sire Global View fetched $410 000 on the second day of trading at the 2016 Keeneland September Yearling Sale yesterday.
The daughter of Street Cry was knocked down to Fox Hill Farm at Tuesday’s session.
Consigned by Man O’War Farm, as agent for Reiko and Michael Baum, the bay filly is a half sister to four winners, including Global View.
The latter, who is currently standing his first season at Ascot, won three times including the G2 American Turf Stakes (at three), and the G3 Generous Stakes as a two-year-old.
Global View’s dam, Egyptian Queen, is an unraced Storm Cat half sister to G2 San Felipe Stakes winner A.P. Warrior and she is out of Warrior Queen –a former champion in Britain and Ireland, and a daughter of outstanding broodmare sire Quiet American (also damsire of leading US sire Bernardini).
This is the family of champions and leading sires Green Tune and Storm Bird, with the latter’s numerous high class runners including the above mentioned Storm Cat, as well as successful sires Summer Squall and Mujadil.
His sire Galileo, currently the world’s number one sire, was recently represented by his 60th individual G1 winner when his son Churchill won Sunday’s G1 Goffs Vincent O’Brien National Stakes by an impressive four and a quarter lengths.
Galileo is also the sire of top class stallions New Approach and Teofilo, as well as unbeaten superstar, and current sire sensation, Frankel. The latter has been represented by 20 first crop runners to date, which include four stakes winners (three group winners), as well as the highly regarded undefeated Seven Heavens and the stakes placed Cunco.
Currently Frankel’s group winning daughters Fair Eva and Queen Kindly are first and second favourites respectively for next year’s Qipco 1000 Guineas.
