This four-year-old mare Azpeitia, by Showcasing out of a winning Pivotal mare, is offered for sale in foal to successful sire Mayson.
She is three parts in blood (75% related) to top 2018 two year old Advertise who is also by Showcasing out of a Pivotal mare. Advertise won the Grp-1 Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh before coming second to Too Darn Hot in the Grp-1 Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket and earning a rating of 118. He has since added two further Grp-1 victories as a three-year-old.
Showcasing is a son of top sire Oasis Dream and is a half-brother to Camacho, who is the sire of the 2018 Grp-1 Poule d'Essai des Pouliches (French 1,000 Guineas) winner Teppal. On the racetrack, Showcasing won the Grp-2 Gimcrack Stakes before coming home third in the Grp-1 Middle Park Stakes as a two-year-old and came second in the Grp-2 Duke Of York Stakes at three. He was rated 114 before becoming a stallion in 2011 at a fee of £5,000.
Despite this low starting fee he has been very successful siring Grp-1 Haydock Park Sprint Cup and Commonwealth Cup winner Quiet Reflection, Stakes winning sprinter Tasleet (who started his stallion career for Shadwell in 2019), sire Cappella Sansevero and top two-year-old Soldier's Call who won the Grp-2 Flying Childers Stakes before coming home third against older oppostion in the Prix de l'Abbaye at Longchamp on Arc day earning a rating of 114. Based on this success, Showcasing stood at £55,000 in 2019 and is a sire on the up.
The dam, Leaves You Baby, is by top broodmare sire Pivotal and won twice over ten-furlongs reaching a highest rating of 76. Her dam is Listed race winner Royal Devotion (by Sadler's Wells) who is one of seven black-type performers produced by granddam Alleged Devotion including Devoted To You who is the dam of 2019 Irish Derby Grp-1 winner Sovereign. Alleged Devotion was also half sister to Oaks and Irish Derby Grp-1 winner Balanchine. This is also the family of Grp-1 Dubai World Cup winner Thunder Snow.
Azpeitia is not only from a Grp-1 family and by a top young sire in Showcasing but also has one of the best broodmare sires in Pivotal who was the leading such sire in 2018 even keeping Galileo and Sadler's Wells below him!
She was promising on the racetrack gaining three places in her four runs including two seconds in 2018 over six and seven-furlongs and gaining an official rating of 75 and a Timeform rating of 79. Unfortunately Azpeitia had to be retired due to injury but her excellent breeding and physical scope indicate she has very promising broodmare potential. As a foal she was speed gene tested by Plusvital and is a C:C short which means she was likely to be best at sprint distances and, with the right covers, there is no reason why she cannot produce fast commercially attractive horses.
She has a three-year-old Bated Breath half-sister called Kokocha who is in training in France and has won two races this year, a Mukhadram two year old half-brother who has been sold to race in Australia and her dam, Leaves You Baby, was in foal to Tamayuz at the start of 2019.
