A yearling son of the exceptionally quick stallion Pastoral Pursuits, out of a successful broodmare from a fast family, is offered for sale at £10,000. He is being sold in South Yorkshire and viewings can be arranged.
The dam Arctic High was a winner over an extended mile on the all-weather as a four-year-old, and she has gone on to significant success as a broodmare. Amongst her successful progeny is the multiple-winner Avrilo, who excelled at five-furlongs and has already foaled the winners of seven races over sprint trips herself. Arctic High is a daughter of the Grp-1 winning sprinter and sire of sires Polar Falcon, who has been a tremendous influence for speed over the years through the exploits of his sons and daughters, including Nunthorpe winner and leading stallion Pivotal.
Arctic High hails from a versatile family, as her mother Oublier L'Ennui was a winner over hurdles and fences, but has turned out runners with a deal more speed. These include the smart winning sprinter Shudder, who was runner-up in a five-furlong Grp-3 as a juvenile and precocious enough to score on racecourse debut.
The sire Pastoral Pursuits has proven himself a sure-fire source of speed. A top class sprinter on the track, his career highlight came when winning the Grp-1 July Cup over six-furlongs. A prolific stallion, his best runners include the Listed-winning sprinters Perfect Pasture, Angel's Pursuit and Lightscameraction.
This is a pedigree full of speed and durability, and this attractive youngster will surely not take long to make his mark on the racecourse next season.
