The beautiful four-year-old filly Xylophone, who hails from a tremendous Cheveley Park family, is offered for sale with a nomination to an exciting young stallion included in the package. Interested parties should make contact with the vendor to find out more about this rare and exciting offer.
Xylophone was extremely lightly raced during her racing career, but does not lack for pedigree. Her dam Piano was a three-time winner over middle distances, who was rated 99 at her peak, and gained valuable Black Type when placed in Listed company.
The 2015 half-sister named Cavatina is an extremely promising sort with trainer William Haggas, and got off the mark recently on her third outing at Kempton over seven-furlongs.
A generation back and we find the second dam Humoresque, a five-time winner at up to a mile-and-three-furlongs, including in Grp-3 class and twice at Listed level. She has foaled six winners from seven runners, an incredible return which bodes extremely well for the future of Xylophone.
Xylophone is by the sire Medicean, a Cheveley Park stalwart who won the Grp-1 Lockinge and Eclipse Stakes. He has carved out a fine career at stud, responsible for such runners as Grp-1 winning juvenile turned sire Dutch Art and dual Grp-1 winning miler Nannina. Interestingly, his record as a broodamre sire also stands up to scrutiny. He is in the pedigree of counteless stakes winners in this way, including Grp-1 Grand Prix de Paris winner Shakeel.
This is a fantastic opportunity to purchase an exciting broodmare with a huge future.
