Sire: Gregorian (IRE)
Dam: Naemi (GER)
Dam Sire: Tannenkonig (IRE)
A colt by Gregorian is offered for sale by GG Racing and Bloodstock.
The colt was a May foal out of Naemi, a German-bred mare whose near relatives include the Listed-placed Nobilesca, Nueba and Nastro Azzuro. Naemi has previously produced the multiple winner Delightful Sleep, who was a tough and consistent performer that excelled on the AW at trips around a mile, but also acted on turf and stayed middle distances.
Naemi is a daughter of the German sire Tannenkonig, who may not be that familiar a name, but is the damsire of Grp-3 winner Abendwind.
The sire of this youngster is Gregorian, who won the Grp-2 Hungerford Stakes amongst three pattern successes, and was Grp-1 placed in the Prix Jean Prat, Queen Anne Stakes, St James's Palace Stakes and the July Cup. A tough and versatile performer, he has made a decent start to his covering career. His first crop of runners this season already includes the winners Aerosphere, Chynna, Gypsy Spirit, Kalissi, and Solesmes.
This colt is blessed with an interesting blend of speed and more stamina-laden German blood. It promises to be an exciting mix, and given that his price tag is a fraction of the average yearling price of his sire's stock when sent to auction, interest in him is sure to arrive thick and fast. Don't miss out!
