Three out of three for Great Britain
Highlands Farm’s well bred young sire Great Britain has made a fine start to his South African stud career.
To date, the son of Green Desert has had three runners –and all three have either won or finished in the money.
Great Britain’s runners to date include the impressive winner Roy’s Goddess, as well as Mystical Twilight who ran third on his only start to date.
Winner of the Al Quoz Sprint (now a major G1 contest), Great Britain is a son of one of the world’s most influential stallions of the past two decades – Green Desert. Sire of over 90 stakes winners (12 G1 winners) , Green Desert has left a huge mark on the modern day breed through his outstanding sire sons Cape Cross (an own brother to Great Britain), Invincible Spirit, Oasis Dream and Volksraad.
The Green Desert male line continues to grow in potency through the deeds of the July Cup’s promising grandson sires I Am Invincible, Sea The Stars, Showcasing and the exciting young local sire Querari – to name but a few. An equally outstanding broodmare sire, Green Desert’s daughters have produced an array of stars including English classic winners Makfi and Was, Dubai World Cup winner Almutawakel and the outstanding South African sire Kahal.
From a superb female line and a direct descendant of the legendary champion Pretty Polly, Great Britain hails from the same family as such outstanding sires Great Nephew (sire of Shergar), Nearctic (sire of Northern Dancer), and highly successful South African stallion Preamble II, to name but a few.
Great Britain has 8 lots on offer at the March Yearling Sale, including a colt out of former champion racemare National Bay. His sole lot on offer at next month’s National Sale is a filly out of a full sister to Fillies Guineas winner Pacific Blue.
