The Stravinksy mare Millinsky is available for sale alongside her 2019 filly by Fountain Of Youth. £5,000 will buy you the pair, with the deal enhanced significantly by the fact that Millinsky is offered in foal to the exciting young sire Washington DC, who was standing at a fee of £6,000 when covering the mare.
Millinsky was a useful performer on the track and hails from a famous sprinting family. She won four times in total and demonstrated remarkable consistency by finishing in the frame on 18 of her 27 career starts.
Sound enough to race until the age of six, Millinsky has delivered a total of four winners since her attentions were switched to breeding. Her winning offspring include Moiety and Silvington, who won in Britain, whilst her other progeny have been successful when racing on the continent.
As well as confirming herself a winner producer several times over, Millinsky's progeny have also sold particularly well in the sales ring over a number of years. Her 2014 Mayson filly May Sky was knocked down to Blandford Bloodstock for 140,000gns at the Tattersalls Guineas Breeze-Up Sale in 2016, before being sent into training with John Gosden and going within a short head of winning a Newbury maiden on her racecourse debut.
Millinsky's cracking February 2019-foaled filly at foot is by Fountain Of Youth, a Grp-3 winning son of Attraction whose first crop included a host of individual winners this year. She is now carrying to the top-class sprinter Washington DC, who won the Grp-3 Phoenix Sprint Stakes and placed in Grp-1 company on numerous occasions. He now stands at Bearstone Stud at a covering fee of £6,000 - a figure which puts the extraordinary value on offer here sharply under the microscope.
The price tag looks even more appealing after consideration of Millinsky's pedigree credentials. She is a daughter of the high-class multiple Group-race winning sprinter Millyant, so counts amongst her siblings the dual Grp-3 winning sprinter Mirza and the Listed-placed Millybaa. The extended family includes such classy and fast animals as the Grp-2 Flying Childers Stakes winner Prince Sabo, the Grp-2 Gimcrack Stakes hero Abou Zouz, the Grp-2 Superlative Stakes winner Birchwood and the Grp-3 Molecomb Stakes victor Rumble Inthejungle.
Although approaching the veteran stage at the age of 17, Millinsky still potentially has many breeding years ahead of her. She is a multiple winner, with a good breeding track record and a superb pedigree. At just £5,000 - and with the added bonus of an exciting filly and a cover by a cracking young sire added into the bargain - this is a deal that cannot be missed.
