There are fewer better bred stallions in South Africa than Moutonshoek’s very promising young sire Mambo In Seattle.
A high class racehorse and stakes winner, Mambo In Seattle was beaten the shortest of short heads in the 2008 G1 Travers Stakes by multiple G1 winner Colonel John. The pair drew well clear of their rivals, with those beaten including such G1 winners as Court Vision, Macho Again, Pyro, and Tale Of Ekati, as well as G1 Belmont Stakes winner Da’Tara.
Mambo In Seattle is a son of triple G1 winner Kingmambo (by Mr Prospector out of the great mare Miesque), whose 80 odd stakes winners include such top class sires as King’s Best, King Kamehameha and Lemon Drop Kid. Mambo In Seattle’s dam, Weekend In Seattle, is a G1 placed full sister to US Horse Of The Year and dual champion sire A P Indy and a half sister to G1 Preakness Stakes winner and top class sire Summer Squall (the latter’s offspring including US Horse Of The Year Charismatic).
This well bred and well performed young sire has made a tremendous start to his stud career, with Mambo In Seattle’s first crop of runners including five stakes horses, notably dual G1 winner and millionaire Same Jurisdiction, G3 Caradoc Gold Cup hero Fortune Fella and the high class galloper Saratoga Dancer.
Mambo’s second crop looks equally promising –and contains G3 Byerley Turk winner and G1 Vodacom Durban July contender Mambo Mime, while his current crop of 2yos include impressive recent winner I Travel Light and stakes filly Extradite.
Boland Stud are proud to offer a son of this exciting young sire at the upcoming Sibaya KZN Yearling Sale.
This colt, catalogued as lot 300, is a half brother to a pair of winners, and his winning dam is a daughter of multiple champion sire and broodmare sire Southern Halo and former South African champion Faralmond. The latter, joint Champion Older Female in 1996, won 8 races (four pattern events), with her wins including the G2 Durban Plasma 1900 and two runnings of the G2 Natalia Stakes. The versatile and brilliant Faralmond also finished second in both the G1 Queen’s Plate and the G1 Rothman’s July.
This is the same family as Yorkshire Oaks winner Almeria, and classic winner Steady Growth, among many others!
