Global View half-sister on offer at September Sale

28th Aug 2018

A half-sister to Ascot Stud’s well performed young stallion Global View will be offered at the 2018 Keeneland September Yearling Sale, due to take place from September 10th-23rd this year.

Global View

Catalogued as Lot 866, and consigned by Denali Stud as Agent, the yearling is a daughter of triple G1 winner Medaglia D’Oro, perennially among the leading sires in North America. In 2017, Medaglia D’Oro was responsible for no fewer than seven G1 winners, including the Breeders’ Cup winners Talismanic (Turf) and Bar Of Gold (Filly & Mare Sprint). Currently standing for a fee of $250 000, the sire, also sire of G1 winner and promising sire Violence as well as former Horse Of The Year Rachel Alexandra, has more than 100 stakes winners to his name –including more than 20 individual G1 winners.

This filly is the 8th foal produced by the Storm Cat mare Egyptian Queen, best known as the dam of Global View.
The latter, a graded stakes winner at two and three, won both the G3 Generous Stakes (at two) and G2 American Turf Stakes at three, with Global View banking nearly $500 000 during his racing career.

Egyptian Queen, in turn, is out of the stakes winning Quiet American mare Warrior Queen, also dam of multiple graded stakes winner A. P. Warrior.

This is the same family as breed shaping sire Storm Bird –whose legendary sire son Storm Cat is broodmare sire of Global View!

Galileo -sire of Global View

Global View is a son of record breaking champion sire Galileo, who currently has nine GB/Ire General Sires titles to his name and who has sired 278 stakes winners to date.

Sire of recent G1 winners Forever Together and Kew Gardens, Galileo is enjoying increasing success as a sire of sires thanks to his sons Teofilo, Frankel, New Approach (sire of 2018 Investec Derby hero Masar among others), Nathaniel and Intello.

Ascot Stud’s young sire is bred on the same Galileo/Storm Cat cross as the major G1 winners Ballydoyle, Clemmie, Churchill, Decorated Knight, Gleneagles, Happily,  Marvellous and outstanding broodmare Misty For Me (dam of G1 winners Roly Poly and U S Navy Flag).


Global View, whose first yearlings sell in 2019, currently stands at the Ascot Stud for a fee of R20 000.
