Dam Sire: BOB BACK (USA)
Covering sire: Walk In The Park
Currently in foal: yes
Foal at foot: yes
Details: Colt foal by Getaway
The regally-bred NH mare Deploythetank is offered for sale alongside her colt foal by the leading sire Getaway priced at £20,000 for the pair.
Update! Deploythetank has been scanned in foal to outstanding NH sire Walk In The Park, whose long list of high-profile progeny includes Douvan and Min!
Deploythetank is out of the Bob Back mare Bobbing Back and by the Irish Derby runner-up Deploy, who is the broodmare sire of Dubawi and numerous smart types over jumps.
Bobbing Back was a lightly-raced and unremarkable performer on the track, but her exploits as a producer mark her out as one of the most significant NH broodmares of recent decades.
Her progeny include the much-loved 2015 Grand National hero Many Clouds, who also won the Hennessy and Grade-2 Cotswold Chase at Cheltenham twice - memorably defeating the mighty Thistlecrack on the second occasion before tragically losing his life shortly afterwards. Her other star turn was The Tullow Tank, a dual Grade-1 winning novice hurdler and Grade-1 placed chaser, who would surely have achieved more had injury not interrupted his career.
Bobbing Back continues to be a force in the sales ring, with her 2015 Oscar gelding making €55,000 at the Tattersalls Ireland August NH Sale as recently as 2018, and the stage is set for Deploythetank to continue her legacy.
Unraced on the track, Deploythetank produced five consecutive foals by Mahler, Imperial Monarch, Cloudings, Mustameet and Laverock, before being given a year off in 2019. She now has a cracking colt foal by Getaway at foot.
The covering sire has quickly established himself as one of the most exciting stallions currently in service. In less than five seasons with runners he has already been represented by the Grade-1 Christmas Hurdle winner Verdana Blue, the dual Grade-2 winning hurdler Getabird, the Grade-2 winning novice chaser Danny Whizzbang and the Bet365 Gold Cup Chase winner Talkischeap. He has a host of exciting young stock currently emerging, his progeny regularly auction for six figures in the sales ring and demand for his offspring is at an all-time high.
Deploythetank and her foal look extremely competitively priced here based on recent sales ring evidence.
Her half-sister Ned's Joy produced a son of Shantou who made €60,000 at the 2019 Tattersalls Ireland February NH Sale, whilst the same mare's 2015 foaled gelding Ned's Escape - by Getaway - realised €50,000 at the 2018 Derby Sale. Further evidence of the family's continuing commercial appeal was provided when another sibling, the Oscar mare Autumn Clouds, had her Walk In The Park colt foal auction for €45,000 at the 2019 Goffs December NH Sale.
Deploythetank has yet to be represented by a runner, but it is
surely only a matter of time before she comes into her own as a
broodmare. She has outstanding pedigree credentials, her dam and
sisters have continually demonstrated that buyers retain a strong
interest in the family, and she has a fit and healthy youngster by
a top-class stallion at foot.
