The eight-year-old Diamond Green mare Oyster is offered for sale, having been scanned in-foal to the exciting young sire Peace Envoy. A mare with an exciting and commercially appealing profile, she offers breeders an excellent opportunity to capitalise on some quality bloodlines.
Oyster was the winner of a six-furlong maiden as a two-year-old, before going on to place in multiple handicaps at up to a mile and a half at three. In total she won or placed on four of her 12 career starts and demonstrated herself to be an honest and consistent performer.
She has since had her attentions switched to breeding, producing the three-year-old Finjaan filly Pinctada, who has run a handful of times to date, a two-year-old filly by Outstrip, a yearling filly by the highly promising sire Cable Bay and a yearling colt by Peace Envoy. The last two mentioned have been retained by current connections and hopes are high that they will add to the page in the seasons ahead.
Peace Envoy, the covering sire and that of the yearling colt, was a high-class performer at two for Aidan O'Brien, winning at Listed and Grp-3 levels and placing in the Grp-1 Prix Morny. He was retired to Worsall Grange Stud for the 2018 breeding season and his first foals have been received to great acclaim this year.
Aside from the obvious appeal of being a winner offered in foal to an exciting young sire, there is genuine quality to Oyster's family that will excite pedigree gurus.
She is a full-sister to the Listed-placed Futuro Anteriore, whilst another sibling Elusive Beauty won the Listed Eternal Stakes and was placed in Grp-3 company. Oyster's second dam Luminosity produced nine winners including four black-type earning runners, whilst further members of this family include the four-time Grp-1 winner and Champion Miler Bigstone, the US Grade-2 winners More Chocolate and Rhythm Of Light and the Grp-2 Royal Lodge Stakes hero Mohawk.
At just eight years of age Oyster has a tremendous amount of potential. She boasts the pedigree and racing ability to suggest that she can be a successful broodmare and is offered at a very competitive price.
