Dam Sire: SADLER'S WELLS (USA)
The impeccably-bred three-year-old Cacique gelding Perique is offered for sale by multiple-Classic winning Newmarket trainer Ed Dunlop. A late maturing sort of horse, he is sold perfectly sound and has no vices.
Perique has run five times to date, showing promise on the AW during the early part of the year at up to a mile and a half. Although green and clearly in need of experience on all his starts so far, Perique finished just seven and a half lengths behind the subsequently 80-rated Water's Edge at Lingfield in February, showing clear signs of ability. He is now rated just 57, a handy mark from which he can progress.
Perique is out of the Sadler's Well mare Meetyouthere, who won on racecourse debut in the French provinces and has gone on to notable success at stud. Her four offspring to race prior to Perique all made their way into the winners enclosure, with Moderah giving early notice of the mare's capabilities by finishing third in the Grp-3 St Simon Stakes in 2015.
Meetyouthere's 2015 Sea The Stars colt Raa Atoll was trained by John Gosden to win twice during the 2018 season and finish fourth in the Grp-2 King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot. He went on to auction for 30,000gns at the Tattersalls Autumn Horses In Training Sale in October, and has since landed the Grp-2 Oleander-Rennen in Hoppegarten and finished second in the Grp-2 Curragh Cup for new connections.
This last piece of information points to the exceptional re-sale value that members of this family hold.
The sire Cacique was a dual Grp-1 winning son of Danehill who has carved out a good reputation for himself within the stallion ranks. He has produced numerous Grp/Grade-1 winners on the flat such as Mutual Trust, Dominant and Slumber, whilst it is also worth noting that he has been represented by numerous useful hurdlers such as the 134-rated Attest, the three-time winner Buckle Street and the seven-time scorer Dark and Dangerous.
Perique is easy to do and possesses bundles of scope and plenty of untapped potential on the flat or over jumps. This well-bred sort can reward buyers willing to give him the time to fulfil his undoubted potential.
