More success for Sail From Seattle
Ascot Stud’s Sail From Seattle has made a superb start to his stud career and the son of Gone West had another first crop stakes winner when his Gr1 placed son Tommy Gun scored an effortless 10.5 length romp in the Listed Riverside Handicap.
Now a five time winner, Tommy Gun (who was bred by the Milkwood Stud) was produced by Joshua Dancer mare Kathakali.
The Riverside Handicap winner is one of five stakes horses produced in Sail From Seattle’s first crop, which also includes the now exported Gr1 Grand Parade Cape Guineas winner Elusive Gold and the talented debut winner My Nephew Eric.
Sail From Seattle (Gone West – Seattle Classic) has made an equally impressive start with his second crop – which has already produced five individual winners. They include recent debut winner Priceless Sail and unbeaten colt Captured Wind, and this crop also includes the stakes placed filly Vanishing Sails.
Winner of the Mt Sassafras Stakes, Sail From Seattle (who is from the same family as Highlands Farm’s exciting new recruit Jackson) is a grandson of Canadian champion Classy ‘N Smart. The latter is the dam of Canadian Champion Dance Smartly, as well as dual Champion US Sire Smart Strike, himself now a promising sire of sires.
Sail From Seattle has just two lots on offer at the 2014 Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale.
Lot 379 is a colt out of a winning daughter of world leading sire and broodmare sire Selkirk. His second dam, in turn, is a Kris S half-sister to international champions Tikkanen and Turgeon.
Sail From Seattle is also represented by 477 on the National Sale – a half-sister to 3 winners, including the smart seven time winner Bandol. The filly, whose dam is by top broodmare sire National Assembly, is a great granddaughter of Gr1 winner, and South African tap-root mare, Enchanting.
