The winning mare Freedom Rock is offered for sale. She has just foaled a filly by the sire Pride Of Dubai (not included in the sale). Current owners Kirtlington Stud will deliver just after weaning on 25th July this year and are willing to walk the mare into a stallion of the new owner's choice within 100 miles of Kirtlington (Oxfordshire).
Freedom Rock was the winner of a Carlisle maiden and has had one previous foal, a 2017 filly by Kyllachy. She is a half-sister to the 86-rated seven-furlong winner Aqua Libre, whilst her dam is a half-sister of the Grade-2 placed Japanese performer Red Eldest.
The family traces back to the wonderful racemare Last Second, winner of the Grp-2 (then) Nassau Stakes and Grp-2 (then) Sun Chariot Stakes. She went on to produce ten winners, including the dual Grp-1 and Classic winner and sire Aussie Rules.
Her prospects at stud are enhanced by the fact that she is a daughter of Rock Of Gibraltar. The daughters of the seven-time Grp-1 winner have given the winners of dozens of Group races, including Breton Rock and the Grp-1 winners Photo Call and Mikki Isle.
If purchased now, the Stud will keep the mare free of charge until weaning; all other costs such as veterinary bills and farrier usage will be the responsibility of the new owner.
