Global View half-sister sells at Keeneland September Sale

14th Sep 2018

A Medaglia D’Oro half-sister to Ascot Stud’s popular young stallion Global View was knocked down for $400 000 at this week’s opening session of the 2018 Keeneland September Yearling Sale.

Consigned by Denali Stud Agent, the filly (catalogued as Lot 866) was sold to Tom McGreevy, acting as agent for Michael Stinson.

Galileo -sire of Global View

The dark bay or brown miss is a half-sister to four winners, notably G2 American Turf/G3 Generous Stakes winner Global View and seven time scorer  Fusaichi Samurai.

Her dam, the Storm Cat mare Egyptian Queen, is a half-sister to the versatile G2 San Felipe Stakes winner A P Warrior and she is out of Round Tower Stakes winner and Irish high-weight Warrior Queen.

This is the same family as French 2000 Guineas winner and high class sire Green Tune, as well as champion and breed shaping sire Storm Bird (sire of Global View’s outstanding broodmare sire Storm Cat).

The Ascot Stud traces back directly in female line to Canadian Oaks winner and blue-hen South Ocean.

Global View, whose first yearlings go on sale in 2019, is a son of the world’s greatest stallion Galileo (sire of 2018 G1 winners Forever Together, Kew Gardens and Waldgeist) and is bred on the same Galileo/Storm Cat cross as G1 winners Ballydoyle, Misty For Me (dam of G1 winners Roly Poly and U S Navy Flag), Churchill, Gleneagles, Clemmie, Happily and Decorated Knight –to name a few.

Galileo sire sons have enjoyed huge success in 2018 and are responsible for, among others the winners of such major races as the Investec Derby, St James’s Palace Stakes, Prix Jean Prat, Coronation Cup, Prix Ganay, Doncaster Handicap and this year.
