Sire: Steele Tango (USA)
Dam: Catrin (GB)
Dam Sire: Soviet Star (USA)
A correct and well-made yearling colt is offered for sale.
He is the first foal out of the Soviet Star mare Catrin. She was unraced but is closely related to the Listed winner Alphard, whilst her sire is a noted broodmare sire.
Soviet Star is responsible in that category for the wonderful five-time Grp-1 winner Soviet Song, the Grp-1 Prix de l'Abbaye winner Wizz Kid, the multiple Grp-3 winner and sire Captain Gerrard, the multiple Pattern winner, Cambridgeshire hero and Grp-1 placed Blue Monday and last season's Grp-2 Coventry Stakes winner Rajasinghe - amongst others.
This youngster is by the Grp-3 Darley Stakes winner Steele Tango, who also won twice at the Dubai Carnival, was Grp-2 placed and was fifth in the Grp-1 Eclipse Stakes behind Sea The Stars.
He has been afforded limited opportunities so far at stud, but he was a high quality and durable performer, and there is much to like about his pedigree. His dam was a half-sister to the Grp-1 Poule d'Essai des Pouliches winner Valentine Waltz and the Gr.1 Matron Stakes winner Sense Of Style, from the family of multiple Grp-1 winner and leading sire Last Tycoon.
This lovely sort offers breeders a low cost opportunity to buy into an underrated family.
