Sire: Sir Prancealot (IRE)
Dam: Baltic Time (IRE)
Dam Sire: Baltic King (GB)
A handsome and well-made son of Sir Prancealot is offered for sale. He can be bought as a whole or in 25% shares, and is in training with the progressive and upwardly mobile Paul George from his Devon base.
This April-foaled gelding, who is blessed with a superb temperament and is a good-moving and correct specimen, is out of the prolific Baltic Time. The mare won eight times in Italy and placed a further 24 times, earning almost £40,000 in prizemoney in the process.
She is in turn a full-sister to the Listed-placed Tacma, from the family of Grp-2 Flying Childers Stakes winner Poker Chip, multiple Group-winning Italian Champion Two-Year-Old filly Pleasure Place and the Grp-3 winning stayer Primitive Rising.
The sire Sir Prancealot also won the Flying Childers and was a close-up fourth in the Grp-1 Prix Morny. He was retired at the end of his two-year-old campaign, and in three seasons with runners he has earned a reputation for producing tough and talented types in his own image. 2018 has seen the stallion breakthrough at a higher level, with Sir Dancealot winning the Grp-2 Lennox Stakes and Grp-2 Park Stakes and Madame Dancelaot winning in Grade-2 company in the US, as well as placing at the highest level.
Hopefully this cracking gelding can further boost the sire’s reputation next year. Bred to be an early and precocious individual, he has winning genes and is in the care of an extremely talented young trainer.
