A close relative of Varsfontein Stud’s bang in form sire Judpot made 580,000 guineas on the opening day of Tattersalls October Yearling Sale Book 1 on Tuesday.
The chestnut daughter of leading sire Dubawi, consigned by Highclere Stud, was purchased by John Ferguson.
Out of the stakes winning Danehill Dancer mare Wild Wind (whose wins included the Listed Vincent O’Brien Ruby Stakes, and who was third in the G1 French 1000 Guineas), this blue blooded filly lacks nothing in terms of pedigree. Her third dam, Monevassia, is an unraced own sister to world leading sire and French 2000 Guineas winner Kingmambo and a half brother to French 1000 Guineas/Oaks heroine East Of The Moon as well as the highly successful local sire Judpot.
This is also the family of past Breeders Cup winners Karakontie (who is currently aiming for the 2015 face) and Six Perfections), G1 Yorkshire Oaks winner Tapestry and the latter’s champion 2yo dam Rumplestiltskin. The latter won five races including the G1 Moyglare Stud Stakes and G1 Prix Marcel Boussac and was Europe’s Champion 2YO Filly in 2005.
Judpot, sire of the recent Gr2 Supreme Cup (Sponsored by SAP) winner Deputy Jud, has been enjoying a tremendous run with his offspring lately and currently ranks seventh on South Africa’s General Sires List and is also the country’s Leading Sire on Sand.
His son Enkidu recently made it two wins from as many outings when scoring over 1200m at Fairview last week, and this full brother to G3 Diana Stakes winner Double Whammy looks above average.
Judpot’s sire A P Indy has also enjoyed another huge year with the now pensioned legend being represented by G1 winners Honor Code (Met Hcp, Whitney S), and Got Lucky (Spinster Stakes).
