Date of Birth: 03 Feb 2020
Sire: Havana Grey (GB)
Dam: Exceedingly Diva (GB)
Dam Sire: Exceed And Excel (Aus)
This stunning 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-foal by Havana Grey, this filly is out of the Exceed And Excel mare Exceedingly Diva. The dam proved herself an above-average talent when comfortably defeating a field featuring the subsequently stakes-placed Foxtrot Lady as a two-year-old, over six-furlongs at Salisbury.
Exceedingly Diva had earlier been a €46,000 yearling purchase and hails from a fine Shadwell family.
She is a half-sister to Dhafeera, a multiple winner in the US, and out of the lightly-raced Oasis Dream mare Anqooda. She is in turn a half-sister to the Listed-placed Algaith, whilst the next generation of the family is responsible for more than a dozen stakes performers, most notably the 1,000 Guineas and Coronation Stakes heroine Ghanaati, the Grp-1 Champion Stakes runner-up Mawatheeq and the Oaks third Rumoush.
The covering sire Havana Grey was a top-class and precocious sprinting son of Havana Gold, and is recognised as the fastest horse to emerge from the Galileo sire line.
He won the Grp-3 Molecomb Stakes, twice in Listed company and was Grp-1 placed as a two-year-old, whilst he secured his most famous triumph in the Grp-1 Flying Five Stakes at three.
Based at Whitsbury Manor Stud - the operation responsible for nurturing the phenomenal career of sire sensation Showcasing - Havana Grey covered 145 mares in his first crop last year, demonstrating an excellent 94% fertility rate in the process. His early foals on the ground have been met with great acclaim and there is little doubt that he is one of the most exciting young sires currently in service.
A good-looker, who moves with fluidity and grace - as the accompanying video evidence indicates - there are numerous positive indicators that suggest this filly has high-level potential.
For instance, the only runner to previously represent the cross of Havana Grey's sire Havana Gold with an Exceed And Excel mare resulted in a winner, whilst Exceed And Excel's reputation as a damsire continues to soar. In 2019 his mares produced the Derby winner Anthony Van Dyck and July Cup hero Ten Sovereigns, amongst others.
