Dam Sire: ALHAARTH (IRE)
Currently in foal: no
Foal at foot: yes
Details: Elzaam foal that does not constitute part of this sale.
An opportunity has arisen to purchase the nicely-bred broodmare, River Bounty.
She was a useful performer on the track, winning her third outing over six furlongs at Haydock and later adding two more victories at the same trip.
She is out of the unraced Alhaarth mare Artistic Merit, from the family of the Listed-placed pair Gryffindor and Vicious Knight and the high-class flat/jumps performer and leading NH sire Midnight Legend.
River Bounty is by Bahamian Bounty, the damsire of Group winners Epsom Icon, Angels Will Fall and Able Speed (previously known as Prolific).
She now has an Elzaam colt-foal and has previously foaled progeny by Kodiac, Society Rock, Camacho and Baltic King, and she is capable of throwing a very good-looking sort that can translate into sales ring success.
Her 2013 Kodiac filly made £30,000 at the Goffs Silver Yearling Sale and the Camacho colt 18,000gns at Tattersalls December Foal Sale. The latter, now named Lynchpin and in training with Jane Chapple-Hyan, promises to be a good late-season two-year-old.
River Bounty is pictured with her Elzaam colt-foal. The foal is not part of this sale.
