The unraced three-year-old Al Kazeem filly Larkspeed is offered for sale as a breeding prospect.
A favourite of current connections, she is completely sound but sold with a non-racing agreement.
Larkspeed is out of the winning Dubai Destination mare Perfect Delight, so is therefore a half-sister to the twice-winning Poet's Voice colt Sarban. Perfect Delight is in turn a sibling of the Grp-3 winner Perfect Tribute, whilst the pedigree can be traced back to the high-class dual-purpose performer First Row, the Listed winner Swift Tango and the 2,000 Guineas runner-up Enrique.
Larkspeed's yearling half-sister by the red hot Night of Thunder was recently sold at Book 2 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, where she made 58,000gns. Her elder half-brother by Poet's Voice made 16,000gns as a Book 3 yearling in 2017, whilst the enduring commercial appeal of this family is confirmed by the record of the second dam Perfect Spirit, whose progeny have sold for sums including 180,000gns, 110,000gns and 90,000gns within the past five years.
Larkspeed's sire Al Kazeem was a four-time Grp-1 winner during a superb racing career, and he has made a very good fist of his stallion career despite limited fertility.
His standout performer to date is the Grp-1 winner Aspetar, though other Stakes performers such as Saint Lawrence, Usak and Golden Spell have confirmed his potency. He has yet to be represented by a runner as a broodmare sire, but his proficiency with fillies suggests that it will only be a matter of time before he is making his presence felt. This point was emphasised when his daughter Alexana auctioned for 70,000gns at the 2019 Tattersalls December Mares Sale.
The stunning Larkspeed is the product of a fine family and by a very classy sire. She will surely prove an excellent addition to any broodmare band; please get in touch for further information.
