Sire: Canford Cliffs
Dam Sire: Arch
A lovely genuine and well-bred four-year-old son of Canford Cliffs is offered for sale. This unnamed gelding moves extremely well, has a great temperament and loves his work.
The sire Canford Cliffs needs no introduction as an outstanding
five-time Grp-1 winning miler with a rating of 127. In 2011
he was ranked the joint fifth best racehorse in the world and
second only to Frankel in the mile division.
He has since gone on to carve out a decent reputation as a stallion, and is responsible for a large number of high-class progeny. These include the many times Grp-1 placed Salouen, the Grp-2 winning juvenile Painted Cliffs, the Australian Grp-2 winner Cliff's Edge, the exciting unbeaten Grp-3 winner Jin Jin, the dual Grp-3 winning mare Al Jazi and the Oaks third Harlequeen.
The dam Inishkea ran only once but has a very strong North American pedigree and looks to be an excellent broodmare prospect. The gelding for sale is her first foal, so she still awaits her first runner, but she has also produced a three-year-old filly by the Grp-1 Middle Park Stakes winner The Last Lion.
Inishkea is out of a dual Listed winner who accumulated over £365,000 in win and place prizemoney, whilst the next dam won nine races, including in both Grade-2 and Grade-3 company, and earned the best part of £600,000 in prizemoney.
This prolific family continues to function highly successfully, as was evidenced by the Grade-2 Black-Eyed Susan Stakes success of near relative Miss Marissa earlier this year.
This strong and attractive gelding has recently been backed and ridden away and is good natured and easy to do. He has been vetted and scoped and is now ready to go on. Please get in touch for any more information.
