Dam Sire: Portrait Gallery (Ire)
An unbroken three-year-old filly by Native Ruler is offered for sale at £4,500 ONO. A clean-limbed, solid and scopey individual, she is sold from the field. The filly has been seen to windsuck.
She is out of the successful Portrait Gallery mare Portrait Royale, who won an Irish point-to-point as a youngster before developing into a talented and reliable performer under rules. She would go on to win four handicap chases over distances in excess of three miles, scoring twice each at Plumpton and Folkestone. She was also placed on a further seven occasions, from just 22 starts over fences.
Portrait Royale has since had her attentions switched to breeding and has young stock by Lucarno, Pether's Moon and Universal, although she is yet to be represented by a runner.
The covering sire Native Ruler is an impeccably-bred stallion who stands at Batsford Stud in Gloucestershire. A son of Cape Cross, he is a sibling of the St Leger winner and sire Sixties Icon out of the Oaks heroine Love Divine.
Native Ruler went on to compete at a high level in his own right, finishing a nose second in the Grp-2 Jockey Club Stakes at Newmarket before his career was curtailed by injury. He has already been represented as a sire by the dual chase winner Lady Master and the flat scorer Indigo Princess, despite a limited number of runners.
Other promising progeny of Native Ruler that emerged during the 2019/20 NH season included Rollerruler, who was second on chasing debut at Carlisle in March and Bonny Houxty, who was placed in a series of novice hurdles. There is little doubt there is plenty more to come from the sire and his offspring.
This strong and attractive filly has lots to recommend her and a bright future ahead. Please get in touch for more information.
