West Coast Swing, a mare from the same family as popular young sire Jackson, proved popular on the first day of Keeneland’s mammoth November Breeding Stock Sale.
The daughter of Gone West, also closely related to Ascot Stud’s successful but ill-fated sire Sail From Seattle, was knocked down to R.S. Evans for $500 000.
The popularity of the blue blooded West Coast Swing comes as no surprise as she hails from one of the best families in the stud book. A three parts sister to the 2015 G2 Dwyer Stakes hero Speightster (by Gone West’s champion son Speightstown), West Coast Swing was herself a high class racemare whose three wins included the Prairie Meadows Oaks and she was also second in the G2 Lexus Raven Run Stakes.
West Coast Swing, whose dam is a full sister to Canadian legend and Broodmare Of The Year Dance Smartly, won four of only six outings. She sold in foal to dual G1 Breeders Cup Classic winner and top US sire Tiznow.
Her stakes winning siblings also include the talented Kris S mare Paiota Falls, a winner of four of only five outings including the La Lorgnette Stakes.
West Coast Swing, a past track record holder at Arlington Park, traces back to the legendary broodmare No Class.
The latter, third dam of West Coast Swing, is the third dam of Dynasty’s triple G1 winning son Jackson.
The latter, the record breaking sales topper at the 2010 Emperors Palace National 2YO Sale, won or placed in six G1 races, with his career victories numbering the G1 Investec Cape Derby, G1 Daily News 2000 and G1 Champions Cup.
Currently standing at Highlands for a 2016 fee of R15 000 , Jackson’s first foals arrived this season to rave reviews!
