Sire: And Beyond (IRE)
Dam: Miss Tiny (IRE)
Dam Sire: Desert Prince (IRE)
A two-year-old colt by And Beyond out of a Desert Prince mare is offered for sale. He is an attractive type that ought to make up into a racehorse.
The sire And Beyond won the Grp-3 Queen's Vase at Royal Ascot and has developed into a fair dual-purpose sire. His winning jumpers include the 132-rated hurdler Castlemorris King (who, incidentally, made his debut in the fabled 'Frankel' maiden and ran in the Derby), the Listed-placed bumper performer and flat winner Yonder and the 13-time winner Beyondtemptation. Although afforded even less chances on the flat, he has still been responsible for the prolific Wor Lass, a 10-time winner on the level.
Clearly, granted the right mare, this is a sire that can produce winners and the dam Miss Tiny is from a good family. Although unraced herself, she is a sibling of the US Grade-3 winner Pasar Silbano and the Listed winners Gerfalcon and Come To Heel. The latter only raced three times, winning twice and finishing fourth in the Grp-1 Cheveley Park Stakes on her other start. The extended family features the Stewards Cup heroine Repetitious and her numerous smart descendants, including the Grp-1 Prix du Moulin and Grp-1 Prix de la Foret winner and sire Indian Lodge and the Grp-2 Prix Eugene Adam winner and sire Sarhoob.
The quality of this distaff line is underlined by the sales performance of Miss Tiny's siblings. Her 2012 half-sister by Iffraaj sold for €500,000 at the Goffs Orby Yearling Sale in 2013, whilst the aforementioned Come To Heel was purchased for $450,000 at the 2015 Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale and the one time 89-rated Tai Hang Dragon was auctioned for €200,000 at the 2015 Goffs Orby Yearling Sale.
Additionally, it is worth noting that Desert Prince is the damsire of the Grp-1 Phoenix Stakes winner Alfred Nobel.
Although it can be said that this yearling is not the product of a fashionable sire line, there is more than enough quality in the pedigree to suggest that this offer is a bargain at the advertised price.
