A strong and attractive Cacique mare named Embleton is offered for sale, with the additional bonus of her having been scanned in foal to Pearl Secret. She was serviced by the stallion on the 23rd February 2018.
Lightly-raced during her racing days, Embleton showed ability when fourth at Chelmsford on her third outing as a two-year-old. Although not a star, she was bred by Juddmonte, so boasts a pedigree that suggests her real potential lies in the broodmare division.
Two of her siblings were winners - most notably the 86-rated Ski Lift - whilst their winning dam Morzine is a half-sister to the US Grade-2 winner and Grp-1 placed Three Valleys, who is best remembered over here for his stunning eight-length win in the Grp-3 (then) Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot as a two-year-old. Further near relations include the Australian Grp-3 winner and Grp-1 placed Scissor Kick, whilst the third dam Kerali produced the legendary Hasili, one of the most influential broodmares in history.
Hasili, who died earlier this year, would produce an astonishing array of stars, including Grp-1 winners Intercontinental, Heat Haze, Champs Elysees and Banks Hill, as well as super-sire Dansili. Intriguingly, her 2001 foal by Danehill, who would go on to win twice in Grade-1 company in the US, was none other than Cacique, who is of course the sire of Embleton. He is a Grp-1 producing sire in his own right now, whilst he celebrated his first pattern success as a broodmare sire thanks to Aladdine last year.
The covering sire Pearl Secret was a tough and durable sprinter over many years, winning the Grp-2 Temple Stakes and placing in Grp-1 company. An exceptionally good-looking horse, his first foals have been met to great acclaim this year, and he looks a shrewd choice for Embleton's first cover.
This exciting mare is offered with no VAT, and at just four years of age, she has a long and exciting career ahead of her.
