Covering sire: Adaay (Ire)
Currently in foal: no
Foal at foot: yes
Details: A filly-foal by promising your sire, Adaay.
The Showcasing mare Showbizzy is offered for sale. A talented two-time winner at sprint trips for trainer Richard Fahey, she now has a filly foal at foot (see picture gallery) by the promising young sire Adaay. The foal and the mare are being sold as a package.
Showbizzy demonstrated ability when placing as a two-year-old, before going on to win handicaps at Doncaster and Bath at three. She was a consistent performer on the track and now looks set to enjoy a successful breeding career, having already produced colts by Swiss Spirit and Due Diligence.
She is out of the dual five-furlong winner Nellie Ellis and is therefore a sibling of the winners Rockesbury and Amor Kethley. Nellie Ellis is in turn out of a sibling of the Grp-1 Prix de l'Abbaye winner Gilt Edge Girl (subsequently dam of the Listed winner Time's Arrow) and the Grp-2 Flying Childers Stakes winner Godfrey Street.
Showbizzy is by the increasingly influential Showcasing, who might be too young to have made a significant splash in the broodmare sire division - but 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, his mares are highly sought after in the sales ring. His Grp-1 winning daughter Quiet Reflection sold for 2.1m gns post her racing career at the Tattersalls December Mare Sale. Prize Exhibit made 775,000gns at the same auction, whilst Orange Blossom was yet another six-figure lot for the sire at the 2019 version of the same sale.
The covering sire Adaay was a Listed-placed juvenile who trained on to win the Grp-2 Sandy Lane Stakes (defeating Limato) and the Grp-2 Hungerford Stakes as a three-year-old. He retired to Whitsbury Manor Stud for the 2017 breeding season and several of his progeny have made six-figures in the sales ring. There is plenty of expectation ahead of his first-crop emerging onto racecourse during the 2020 season.
Showbizzy is a young mare who looks set for a long and highly successful breeding career. She is very competitively priced for a daughter of Showcasing and, with her lovely looking foal, can prove a shrewd investment for whomever is lucky enough to secure her purchase.
