The beautifully-bred 13-year-old broodmare Riobamba is offered for sale. She is offered in foal to Quest For Peace, a dual Grp-3 winning son of the legendary Galileo. Her fantastic pedigree and exciting pairing with a promising stallion make her as yet unborn foal a very exciting prospect. Riobamba was trained by Eddie Lynam to win three times and placed on a further four occasions. A real professional, she was effective on varying types of turf and the AW, stayed up to a mile and a furlong, and was rated as high as 89 at her peak. She only narrowly missed out on black-type when beaten just five lengths in Listed company as a six-year-old. Riobamba has produced a few foals to date including the promising bumper performer Noel's Boy, who was second on his only start under rules to date for trainer David Pipe.
Her ability to produce high-quality foals is surely in little doubt when you glance at her pedigree. She is out of the Sadler's Wells mare Moonfire, and is therefore a sister of Moonstar, who is the dam of the US Grade-1 winner Miss World. Moonfire is herself a full-sister to Doyen and Moonshell, winner of the Grp-1 King George Stakes and Grp-1 Oaks respectively. This is a high-quality black-type producing family. The sire Quest For Peace won five times at up to Grp-3 level and was also fourth in the Grp-1 Coronation Cup behind St Nicholas Abbey. His first runners are awaited with anticipation and he looks to be a fine match for Riobamba.
Riobamba was enrolled into the Central Racing breeding programme, and is offered for sale with no vices, all vaccinations up to date for a very competitive £25,000 ONO. This is one to watch!
