Sire: Battle of Marengo (IRE)
Dam: Effige (IRE)
Dam Sire: Oratorio (IRE)
A March 2016 foal by Battle of Marengo, named Military Missile, is offered for sale. He is working upsides and has ran a few times, but is still a little green.
The bay gelding is out of the four-time Italian winner Effige. That mare is in turn out of the winner Dress Code, who was a full-sister to the Grp-3 C L Weld Park Stakes winner Rag Top. Another sibling from that generation of the family is the Listed-placed Red Top.
This family is full of winners and black-type performers, other examples including the Listed Windsor Castle Stakes winner Elhamri, the Listed National Stakes third Dress To Impress and the Italian Grp-3 winner My Lea.
The sire Battle Of Marengo was winner of the Grp-2 Beresford Stakes at two and added wins in the Grp-2 Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial and the Grp-3 Ballysax Stakes at three. He went on to be fourth in the Derby and now stands for a fee of €4,000 at Ballyhane Stud in Ireland. A son of sire of sires Galileo and closely related to Grp-3 winner and sire Windsor Knot, this young stallion welcomes his first crop onto the track this year. He has the credentials to make a significant impact at stud.
This youngster is offered at a very competitive price, judged on his looks, exciting young sire and fine black-type pedigree. Don't miss out!
