Dam Sire: Acclamation (GB)
A most attractive bay yearling by Paco Boy is offered for sale. He is currently based at Folly Farm Stud in Somerset and viewing can be arranged by appointment. A good, caring and knowledgeable home is essential.
The gelded youngster has a good temperament and has been extremely well-handled to this point. He was gelded only due to convenience, and his attitude and demeanour all point to a productive future.
The dam, Trumpet Lily, by Acclamation, won two handicaps on the flat and was placed five times with total winnings of £16,302. She was tough and consistent and her rating peaked at 86.
Her dam, Periwinkle, was a half sister to six winners and their dam, Balsamine, also bred multiple winners, including Milfoil, one of the leading two-year-olds of his year who won the Grp-3 Prix Thomas Bryon, beating Kingmambo.
In addition to Acclamation being one of the top sires in the world he is also now establishing himself as a leading broodmare sire, thanks to the exploits of the Grp-1 Commonwealth Cup winner Eqtidaar, the Grp-3 winning Derby fourth Broome and the Listed winner and French 2,000 Guineas third San Donato.
The sire, Paco Boy, was an outstanding miler for Richard Hannon Snr, winning three times at Grp-1 level, whilst as a sire he is best known for the exploits of his 2,000 Guineas winning son Galileo Gold. He is regularly matched with Acclamation mares and the cross has worked very well in the past resulting in the nine-time winning sprinter Mr Orange and the Grp-2 Flying Childers Stakes winner Beacon.
This yearling combines pleasing physical credentials with a highly appealing pedigree. He will surely go on to prove that his asking price is well below the market value.
