The multiple winning 10-year-old broodmare Dartrix is offered for sale at the very competitive price of £2,000. Viewing can be arranged by appointment at Southwood Farm in North Yorkshire.
This talented and well-related daughter of Dutch Art has no vices or health problems, is blessed with correct conformation, is a very good mover and has delivered four previous foals with no issues. She is up to date with all vaccinations.
Dartrix was trained by Michael Dods to win three of her 26 starts, excelling at five and six-furlongs and demonstrating her versatility by showing her form at a variety of different tracks and under vastly differing conditions.
Her credentials for a breeding career are further boosted by a glance at her pedigree page, which is teeming with black-type animals. She is a half-sister to the 10-time winning sprinter, multiple Listed-placed and 110-rated Spinatrix, whilst their triple-winning dam Shrink was a full-sister to the speedy Grp-3 Cornwallis Stakes third Pachara.
Other animals to emerge from this branch of the family include the Listed Redcar Two-Year-Old Trophy hero and 18-time winner Dubai Dynamo and the Listed (then) Woodcote Stakes victor Sadeek. A generation further back we find more than half a dozen stakes animals, notably the Grp-1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes winner and sire Malhub and the Grp-3 Hackwood Stakes winner and sire Heeraat. In short, this is a sprinting family of rare quality.
Since retiring from racing Dartrix has shown herself to be an easy breeder, scanning in foal at the first attempt each time. Two of her four offspring have raced to this point; her Brazen Beau two-year-old placed earlier this year, whilst her three-year-old daughter Dotty Grand realised £18,000 as a yearling and went on to show useful form.
Dartrix has two foals by Lethal Force to come, one of whom is trained by that sire's own trainer Clive Cox and will be an exciting two-year-old next year. Her 2019 foal has been retained and will go to Michael Dods. She was not covered this year.
This is a tremendous opportunity to purchase a cracking broodmare from a family that continues to go from strength to strength, at a highly affordable purchase price. With many good breeding years in front of her, Dartrix will be a fine addition to any broodmare band.
