Dam Sire: MACHIAVELLIAN (USA)
Currently in foal: no
Foal at foot: no
Gaja is an unraced four-year-old daughter of High Chaparral and the Machiavellian mare Subtle Charm, herself a half-sister to the Oaks winner Snow Bride who later went on to produce Lammtarra, winner of the Derby, King George and Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe en route to becoming European champion three-year-old.
A €70,000 yearling, Gaja is a very attractive bay filly with plenty of size and bone, her good temperament making her easy to deal with. Her dam has bred three winners from five runners to date, while her second dam Awaasif was the champion three-year-old filly in Europe, winning the G1 Yorkshire Oaks and G1 Gran Premio del Jockey Club as well as finishing third in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe and fourth in the Oaks.
Awaasif produced seven winners, including American Grade 3 winner and stallion Jarraar and another graded stakes winner, Ibn Al Haitham. Snow Bride, however, was her star performer and she has continued the dynasty, with Lammtarra being the standout of her six black-type-winning offspring, which include the G3 Prix d'Aumale winner Saytarra.
Gaja's immediate family members have been well received at the sales. Her No Nay Never half-brother was bought for €210,000 at the Goffs Orby Sale last year by South African-based Form Bloodstock and is believed to be in training with Mike de Kock. A half-sister, also by No Nay Never, is to be offered at Book 1 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale on 8 October by leading consignor Camas Park Stud.
Among her elder siblings, Gaja's half-brother Indescribable has won six of his 39 starts in Britain and the UAE, achieving a top rating of 95. Two of her half-sisters, both by excellent broodmare sire Pivotal, are now breeding, with one, the unraced Peace Talks, having already produced the juvenile winners Rantan and Stoneyford Lane.
