Date of Birth: 06 Jun 2016
Sire: Papal Bull (GB)
Dam: Ardkilly Beauty (Ire)
Dam Sire: Presenting (GB)
An unraced four-year-old filly by Papal Bull out of a Presenting mare is offered for sale. She is currently stabled in Lambourn, where she has been lightly broken.
The dam, Ardkilly Beauty, was lightly-raced on the track but hails from an excellent NH family. She is out of the two-time bumper winner Ardkilly Eclipse, who is in turn a half-sister to the Grade-2 placed chaser Crank Shaft.
The same generation of the family has turned into an extraordinary production line for high-class jumping talent over the past couple of decades - and remains as relevant as ever in 2020. The numerous winning produce out of Ardkilly Eclipse's siblings include the multiple Graded-winning hurdler/chaser Emotional Moment, the Cheltenham Festival-winning chaser King Harald, the Irish Grand National runner-up Western Charmer and the Cork National hero Tulsa Jack.
Further descendants of this same branch of the family include the Gold Cup winner War of Attrition, the Grade-1 RSA Chase winner Presenting Percy and the recent Grade-1 Ascot Chase scorer Riders Onthe Storm.
A tremendous tail line is complemented by the influence of a mercurial but extremely talented sire. Papal Bull won twice in Grp-2 company and was a half-length second in the Grp-1 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes during an excellent racing career with Sir Michael Stoute.
His quality as a jumps sire has been highlighted by the exploits of the prolific The Jam Man, who has won nine times over hurdles and fences in recent seasons and is entered in the Grade-1 Stayers' Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival. The sire is also responsible for the Grade-2 placed hurdler Cardinal Palace.
Adding to this filly's prospects is the outstanding record of Presenting as a broodmare sire. His daughters are responsible for a seemingly endless list of high-class progeny, notably the reigning Stayers' Hurdle hero Paisley Park, the King George winner Might Bite and the aforementioned Presenting Percy - plus many, many more.
This young filly has exemplary credentials on paper and looks sure to prove a shrewd investment for whomever is lucky enough to secure her purchase.
