On behalf of Access Bloodstock, Lyndhurst presents three lovely youngsters in session two of Australia's most famous yearling sale. Each are eye-catching types from excellent families and each are eligible for either BOBS or QTIS.
Lot 517 is a bay colt by the Golden Slipper-Gr.1 winner Danzero, sire of 29 stakes winners including the Gr.1 winners Dance Hero, Fairway, Jymcarew, Niconero, Danglissa and Danni Martine. Bred on a 4 X 5 cross of Star Kingdom, he is a half brother to no less than seven winners including the Listed winner Light Sweeper and the stakes place getters Gold Moment, Final Forecast and Junebug.
His grandam is the dual Gr.1 winner Heat Of The Moment whose nine to race were all winners and this is the family of the Gr.1 winners Solvit, Romantic Son, Caballo Basque, Vite Cheval and Helene Star.
Lot 560 is a daughter of the W.S Cox Plate-Gr.1 hero Savabeel whose progeny were in great demand at Karaka – his debut crop averaging an impressive $141,000 at the premier session. Bred on a 3 X 4 cross of Sir Tristram, she is the first foal of a two times winning Woodman mare (and hasn't he been going great guns as a broodmare sire!) Rosie's Sunset whose grandam is none other than the champ Empire Rose.
The winner of nine races including the Melbourne Cup-Gr.1 and the Mackinnon Stakes-Gr.1, she was one of the best of her era and her daughter Rosie's Star produced last year's Queensland Derby-Gr.1 winner Empires Choice.
Lot 598 is by Al Maher and his first crop were the talk of the recent Melbourne Premier sales – one of his sons fetching $220,000 and another $300,000. Bred on the highly successful Danehill/Star Kingdom cross, this filly is out of Wings Of Courage, a half sister to the dual Group winer Eureka Jewel from the family of the stakes winners Spurred On and Live Theatre. This is a prolific family – Wings Of Courage's first four dams between them producing 29 winners of 83 races.
Also selling two lovely types under their own banner, Lyndhurst (who enjoyed a very strong Magic Millions sale - a highlight being a $230,000 Sequalo filly) takes to Sydney lot 682, a Strategic half sister to the Black Opal Stakes-LR winner Down The Wicket and the exciting juvenile Over The Wicket who guaranteed himself a Golden Slipper-Gr.1 berth with his Skyline Stakes-Gr.3 second.
By one of Australia's most consistent stallions (a winners-to-runners strike rate of 66%), she is a daughter of the 15 times winning stakes placed Golf Circuit. Boasting three crosses of Star Kingdom, she can add to Strategic's already impressive record of 16 stakes winners.
Lot 686 is bound to be pulled out of her box a few times – being a daughter of the country's hottest young stallion in Exceed And Excel. And what a family she is from too – her dam Grieger Girl being a half sister to the Gr.1 winner Red Express – dam of the champion Dane Ripper.
Bred on the prominent Danehill/Star Kingdom cross, she boasts a 4 X 5 cross of the wonderful mare My Charmer, dam of Lomond and Seattle Slew.
