The attractive 11-year-old Oasis Dream mare Encore View is offered for sale. A straight and correct sort, she is an easy breeder who has been put in foal at the first attempt every year so far, and is offered in foal to El Kabeir - a son of the great Scat Daddy.
Encore View was lightly-raced during her racing career but showed promise in six and seven-furlong maidens for trainer Andrew Balding. Although her racetrack appearances were limited, her sublime pedigree ensured that a breeding career would follow.
She hails from the George Strawbridge school of excellence and is a sibling of a trio of Listed winners in the form of Oh Beautiful, Face The Facts and Freedom's Light, whilst the next generation of the family features the dual Grp-2 winning and Grp-1 placed sprinter Cassandra Go.
That mare has gone on to take extremely high rank as a broodmare, her offspring and direct descendants including the Grp-1 winners Halfway To Heaven, Magical, Rhododendron and Photo Call. Cassandra Go was herself a half-sister to the top-class juvenile and later leading sire Verglas, whilst further high-class individuals to emerge from this family include the 2018 Melbourne Cup hero Cross Counter.
Encore View has produced a handful of runners to date, most notably the Harbour Watch gelding Re Run, who was second in a Newcastle maiden over seven-furlongs on his second start and went on to contest races in Listed company subsequently. Meanwhile her 2015 son by Dark Angel, Rock Boy Grey, is just starting life in handicaps and remains promising, whilst his two-year-old full-brother King's View has shown glimpses of ability for trainer Richard Hannon this season.
So there are reasons to be positive about Encore View's existing offspring, and the distaff side of her pedigree is one of genuine quality. Add into the mix the fact that her sire Oasis Dream is developing into a premier broodmare sire (think Siskin and Sir Dragonet this season alone), and excitement levels at her prospects rise.
It is also worth dwelling on the fact that she is offered in foal to El Kabeir. A multiple Graded winner in the US, he was retired to stud as the best juvenile to represent Scat Daddy in the US, and his covering fee alone is near twice what is being asked for this mare. His stallion career is being managed by the acclaimed Yeomanstown Stud and he remains an exciting prospect.
All things considered, this proficient breeder appears to be on offer at well below market value, and she has many good years ahead of her. Don't miss out!
