The beautifully bred 11-year-old Royal Applause mare Alushta is offered for sale. She has been scanned in foal to the highly promising young sire Outstrip and is offered for sale alongside her cracking colt foal by Dandy Man. She is a straightforward and good natured mare, who has been put in foal easily every year.
Hailing from a smart family, Alushta had impressed onlookers when auctioning for 70,000gns at the breeze-ups prior to going into training with Ed Dunlop. Although she would only see a racecourse once, the depth of quality to her pedigree ensured that a breeding career followed.
She is a full-sister to the Grp-2 Richmond Stakes winner and Grp-1 placed Mister Cosmi and the Listed-winning and Grp-1 Middle Park Stakes third Auditorium. Another full sibling, the winning mare Princess Georgina, would go on to produce the Listed-winning sprinter Royal Birth (who remains in training), as well as the six-time winner and 87-rated Excellent George and the five-time winner Cincinnati Kit, amongst others.
Since retiring from racing Alushta has produced three runners, and between them they have displayed a good deal of talent.
Her daughter Elysee Star demonstrated she had inherited the family precocity by finishing second on her two-year-old debut over six-furlongs, and has subsequently placed on numerous other occasions. Another daughter, Dulcina, was extremely lightly-raced but finished second over six-furlongs at Kempton as a three-year-old.
Alustha also has a strong and good moving two-year-old filly by Charming Thought currently in training, who will surely add to the page in due course.
The first-crop of covering sire Outstrip impressed during the 2019 season, with the Listed National Stakes heroine Flippa The Strippa his standout performer. Furthermore, his progeny have auctioned for up to €100,000 in the sales ring.
Alushta's colt foal by Dandy Man is a good and strong individual, who was born on the 30th of January. At 17 years of age Dandy Man's stock has never been higher, with his representatives in 2019 including the ill fated 1,000 Guineas runner-up Lady Kaya, whilst already this year his son River Boyne has plundered the Grade-1 Frank E Kilroe Mile in the US.
These superb on course results are reflected in the fact that Dandy Man is standing the 2020 season at a career-high covering fee of €15,000 and that his colt foals averaged 31,000gns (median of 27,000) in 2019. He also has a good record when matched with Royal Applause mares, the resultant progeny including the five-time winner Ty Rock Brandy and the three-time scorer With Caution.
Although the mare is offered for sale alongside her foal in a single package, the vendors are open to sensible offers for either horse individually. Please get in touch for more details.
