Ascot Stud’s beautifully bred young stallion Global View, whose first foals are arriving now, is connected to some of Europe’s most popular and successful runners.
His outstanding sire Galileo, recently represented by a remarkable 70th G1 winner when daughter Clemmie took out the G1 Juddmonte Cheveley Park Stakes, was responsible for the most expensive yearling sold in 2017 when his filly out of Dank fetched 4,000,000 at the recent Tattersalls October Yearling Sale Book 1 this week.
Galileo had four yearlings fetch upwards of 1,000,000 guineas at the October Sale, and his brilliant sons Frankel and Australia also enjoyed magnificent success at Tattersalls this week. Unbeaten legend and current sire sensation Frankel was responsible for a 2.5 million guineas filly, and had another filly fetched 1.4 million guineas. Dual Derby winner Australia has made considerable waves with his first yearlings in 2017 and he had offspring fetch up to 525 000 this week.
Global View himself is from the same family as a Frankel colt (out of Fann) who made 700 000 at the sale.
This is also the family of leading sires Green Tune and Storm Bird and champion 2yo filly Pas De Reponse.
A graded winner at both two and three, Global View is bred on the same Galileo/Storm Cat as the above mentioned Clemmie, and fellow 2017 G1 winners Churchill (2000 Guineas, Irish 2000 Guineas), Decorated Knight (Jebel Hatta, Tattersalls Gold Cup, Irish Champion Stakes) and Happily (Moyglare Stud Stakes, Prix Jean Luc Lagardere).
Another bred on this cross, Taj Mahal, is being aimed at the G1 Cox Plate later this year.
Global View’s sire Galileo has been responsible for no fewer than 12 G1 winners this year and his sire sons include current stars Frankel, New Approach, Teofilo, and Nathaniel –sire of recent Arc winner Enable.
All this surely makes Global View an attractive sire prospect!
