Foal at foot: no
The attractive unraced six-year-old Dansili mare Itinerate is offered for sale at £6,000 ONO. She was covered by Cityscape this year, though is not believed to be in foal.
Itinerate is out of the Oasis Dream mare Heart of Hearts, and hails from an exceptional Juddmonte family.
The dam won a mile and a half Newbury maiden on her third start for the late Sir Henry Cecil, having finished placed behind stakes performers on her first two appearances. She has since gone on to produce Waiting For Richie, the winner of two staying flat handicaps, and Isola Bella May, who was a promising third at Nottingham last year on her only start to date.
Heart of Hearts is in turn out of Shirley Valentine, a Listed-placed mare who also produced the Grp-3 winners Memorise and Multiplex. There are a dozen black-type earning descendants of Shirley Valentine in total, including the Grp-2 Hardwicke Stakes winner Await The Dawn, the Grp-1 Australian Derby victor Leicester and the Grp-1 placed two-year-old Putney Bridge.
As if this wasn't enough, Itinerate's third dam Slightly Dangerous is one of the most decorated broodmares in turf history. After finishing second in the 1982 Oaks she went on to produce the Champions Warning (winner of the Sussex and QEII Stakes) and Commander In Chief (winner of the Derby and Irish Derby), as well as the Grp-1 winning filly Yashmak, the Derby and St Leger runner-up Dushyantor and the Irish Derby second Deploy - a full-sibling of Shirley Valentine.
In addition to hailing from such a storied tail line, Itinerate is by an extremely coveted broodmare sire source in the form of Dansili.
His mares continue to auction for eyewatering sums, evidenced by the €1.25m Unaided made at the 2019 Arqana December Foals and Mares Sale. This well-earned reputation is due to the fact that he is damsire of a legion of high-class performers including Group/Grade-1 winners such as Expert Eye, Uni, Magic Wand, Nezwaah and Ice Breeze.
Itinerate may not have seen a racecourse, but her superb pedigree credentials more than make up for any lack of confirmed racing ability. A long and successful breeding career awaits this beautiful young mare; don't miss out at a competitive price!
