The Showcasing mare Prima Pagina is offered for sale at the bargain price of £850. She has already produced one foal and has a long and exciting breeding career ahead of her. She is easy to do in every way.
Prima Pagina was lightly-raced, with her career unfortunately cut short due to a knee injury. However, she displayed a good deal of talent when a narrow second over seven-furlongs at Wolverhampton on her final racecourse appearance. Please follow the Attheraces link on the right hand side to view footage.
She has since produced a 2019 foaled colt by Swiss Spirit and her profile indicates that an exciting breeding career awaits.
She is a daughter of the increasingly influential Showcasing, who is now firmly established as a top level sire thanks to the exploits of Grp-1 winning sprinters such as Advertise and Quiet Reflection.
Although Showcasing is too young to have made a significant splash in the broodmare sire division, the early signs are highly encouraging. From just a handful of runners he is responsible for five individual winners in this sphere, including the 97-rated Think Big.
In addition, the stallions mares are proving to be highly sought after in the auction ring, with the aforementioned Quiet Reflection selling for 2.1m gns post her racing career. Another of his daughters, Prize Exhibit, made 775,000gns at the same sale, whilst Orange Blossom was yet another six-figure lot for the sire at the 2019 Tattersalls December Mares Sale.
For her part, Prima Pagina has a pedigree which suggests that she can develop into an exciting broodmare. She is a half-sister to the six-time winner Gratzie, out of a half-sister to the Grp-2 Mill Reef Stakes hero Cool Creek.
Prima Pagina's third dam High And Dry was Grp-3 placed before going on to create a significant breeding dynasty. She produced seven winners in her own right, whilst further descendants include the triple Grp-1 heroine Esoterique, the Grp-2 Celebration Mile winner and Grp-1 Dewhurst Stakes runner-up and sire Kodi Bear, the Grp-2 winners Archange D'Or, Russian Hope, Russian Cross and the Grp-3 winner Russian Soul.
A placed daughter of Showcasing from an enduring black-type family - what is not to like about Prima Pagina at an extremely attractive price?
