The 14-year-old Kingmambo broodmare Fairmont is offered for sale alongside her 2019 filly by Heeraat. A lovely and genuine mare, she has proven straightforward to cover and has had no issues when delivering throughout her career.
Adding to the exceptional value of this sale is the fact that Fairmont scanned in foal to Ardad at the first attempt this year. The Grp-2 winning son of Kodiac has created quite a buzz since retiring to Overbury Stud, where he stands at a fee of £6,500. His covering fee alone reflects the bargain nature of this offer.
Fairmont was bred by Gainsborough prior to going into training with Mark Johnston. Her racing career may have been short-lived, as she only ran once in a Yarmouth maiden, but her pedigree appeal was such that a breeding career inevitably followed.
Fairmont is out of the Gone West mare Fiaafy, whose siblings included the Grp-3 Princess Margaret Stakes heroine Mythical Girl. Their dam Yousefia - a Listed winner in her own right - was a full-sister to the Grp-1 July Cup winner and outstanding Champion Sire Green Desert, whilst further members of this storied family include the Grp-1 winning NZ Champion two-year-old Vespa, the Japanese Grade-2 winner and Grade-1 placed Dark Shadow and the high-class seven-furlong performer Eton Forever.
Indeed, the further you dig into this pedigree the more black-type animals you will discover. Another indicator of the quality on this page is the presence of Kingmambo as damsire. The triple Grp-1 winning miler is famed as the exceptional sire of El Condor Pasa, King's Best, Henrythenavigator, Lemon Drop Kid, Dubai Destination et al, but is now perhaps equally well-remembered for his prowess as a broodmare sire. His daughters have provided dozens of Grp-1 winners including Duke Of Marmalade, Camelot, Midday and Cross Counter - to name just a few.
So clearly Fairmont began her second career with impeccable credentials, and she has now produced five winners from just six runners. Her best performer to date is the very talented dual-purpose performer Becky The Thatcher. She has won her two most recent starts this year (one flat, one hurdles) to take her total number of victories to seven, her hurdles mark up to 135 and her career earnings past £50,000.
The other winners out of Fairmont thus far are the five-time winning (including twice this year) and 80-rated sprinter Cappananty Con, the Italian winner Magic Wanda and the dual domestic flat winners Fair Ranger and Emperatriz. The last-named has gone on to underline the potency of the broodmares in the family by producing two juvenile winners from two foals to have raced. Fairmont herself has an impressive yearling by the Norfolk Stakes winner Prince Of Lir who is set to go to auction later this year.
Fairmont is offered for sale alongside her tremendous 2019-foaled filly by Heeraat, who is a strong and mature type that is developing well. Heeraat was a Grp-3 winning sprinter whose first-crop last year featured numerous promising types and he commands a covering fee of £5,000. His progeny are developing with time and he looks to be a shrewd match for Fairmont.
