Sire: Proclamation (Ire)
Dam: Scarlett O'Tara (GB)
Dam Sire: Kayf Tara (GB)
An unbroken yearling filly by Proclamation is offered for sale. She is being sold as a result of her current owner's retirement and looks sure to develop into a fine prospect for her new connections.
The dam Scarlett O'Tara ran just a handful of times in NH flat races, but is from a family that features winners. She is a sibling of the dual pointing winner Lennie da Lion, whilst their dam Lynoso was a half-sister to the bumper winner Smithlyn.
Despite a limited racing background, there are elements to Scarlett O'Tara's pedigree that suggest she can go on to better things as a breeder.
She is by the outstanding Kayf Tara, the dual Ascot Gold Cup winner and nine-time UK Champion jumps stallion. As well as being recognised as the sire of such stellar names as Thistlecrack and Special Tiara, he is also now a good source as a broodmare sire. His daughters have produced countless useful animals such as the Grade-2 bumper winner The Glancing Queen and the Graded-placed hurdlers Uppertown Prince and Holding Pattern.
The sire of this filly, Proclamation, rather fittingly won the Grp-1 Sussex Stakes in 2005 as well as the Grp-3 Jersey Stakes during a brilliant three-year-old campaign. Lightly-raced thereafter, he was placed in the Grp-1 Queen Anne Stakes at four but was retired to covering duties at the end of that season.
Although he made a slightly underwhelming start as a flat stallion, he is proving to be an increasingly accomplished dual-purpose sire, with his best jumper to date being the Grade-2 placed hurdler and useful chaser Chris Pea Green. He looks a shrewd match for Scarlett O'Tara as he has previously combined with a Kayf Tara mare to produce the useful/hurdler chaser Duelling Banjos, who is a four-timer winner that has been rated as high as 137.
With positive details emerging from the pedigree, this impressive youngster is sure to attract plenty of interest. She is a strong and scopey individual who will surely prove a good long-term investment.
