A superb foal is being offered by Frederique Siegl's stud which is located near Moulins in the Auvergne region of France, a 2 ½-hour drive south of Paris. Set in idyllic rural surroundings, the farm has proved to be a perfect place to rear foals in recent years and is where M. Siegl tends to his seven thoroughbred broodmares. The stud is currently represented by seven horses in training.
A February-foaled colt by the promising sire Seahenge, this attractive youngster is out of the unraced Zamindar mare Lafria. The eight-year-old may not have seen a racetrack but her compelling pedigree hints at a bright breeding future.
Lafria is a half-sister to the Listed-placed Lykea out of the Listed-winning and Grp-3 placed Alyzea. That mare is in turn out of the Listed winner Moivouloirtoi and counts the Listed-placed pair El Emel and Jailamigraine, and the high-class HK performer Greenmore, amongst her winning siblings. This prolific black-type family extends back to the Grp-1 winners Maximova, Septieme Ciel and Macoumba.
Lafria has previously delivered a two-year-old filly by Prince Gibraltar and yearling filly by Whitecliffsofdover. The accompanying picture demonstrates the quality of individual she is capable of producing.
Zamindar is a noted broodmare sire source, whose daughters have previously produced the outstanding four-time Grp-1 winning miler Kingman, the Prix du Jockey Club hero New Bay and the Grp-1 Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud winner Zarak, amongst numerous others.
The covering sire Seahenge won the Grp-2 Champagne Stakes over seven-furlongs as a two-year-old for trainer Aidan O'Brien, as well as finishing third in the Grp-1 Dewhurst Stakes. A son of the great Scat Daddy, he went on to demonstrate he stayed a mile at three before entering stud in 2019.
A $750,000 yearling, Seahenge is a sibling of the recent US Grade-3 winner Max Player and the stakes-placed Urban Bourbon, out of a stakes-winning half-sister to the high-class multiple Graded-stakes winning mare International Star. A superb specimen with a stallion's pedigree, Seahenge's popularity and potential were confirmed when he was visited by over 100 mares in his first book.
This colt foal possesses all the attributes one could look for at this stage of his life, including good looks and a black-type pedigree of genuine substance. Price on application; please get in touch for more information.
