Date of Birth: 11 Mar 2018
Sire: MUSTAJEEB (GB)
Dam: ROCK ON CANDY (GB)
Dam Sire: EXCELLENT ART (GB)
A three-year-old colt by Mustajeeb is offered for auction. He is sold with no reserve and bidding starts at just £800.
He is out of the Excellent Art mare Rock On Candy, who excelled at five-furlongs and was a three-time winner in handicap company.
Rock On Candy's second dam Strawberry Roan was a Listed winner who finished runner-up in the Irish 1,000 Guineas, and went on to produce four winners including the Grp-1 placed Berry Blaze.
Strawberry Roan is in turn a full-sister to the Oaks and Irish 1,000 Guineas heroine Imagine, and a half-sister to the outstanding Generous, winner of the Derby, Irish Derby and King George in 1991, and later a successful sire.
Since retiring from racing Rock On Candy has produced a four-year-old Cityscape filly, a two-year-old Heeraat filly and a yearling colt by Coach House, in addition to this son of Mustajeeb.
The Heeraat filly, now named Darcy's Rock, is the only runner so far out of the mare. She made her debut over six-furlongs at Brighton in August, making some late headway and not disgracing herself in finishing fifth.
The covering sire Mustajeeb was trained by Dermot Weld to win the Grp-3 Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot and finish third in the Irish 2,000 Guineas as a three-year-old, before landing the Grp-2 Greenlands Stakes when dropped back to sprinting at four.
He was subsequently retired to stud in 2016 and his first crop emerged in 2019. From a limited number of runners he has been represented by the dual winner and 89-rated Bill Neigh, the 88-rated six-furlong winner Jadwal, the impressive Yarmouth winner Intimate Moment, and the talented filly Lubna. She won a Brighton maiden by eight-and-a-half lengths for Godolphin in June, before making 35,000gns at the Tattersalls July HIT Sale. She clearly retains the potential to go on to better things.
This colt is a superb individual, who will offer enormous value if he can emulate any of the illustrious names that feature close-up in his pedigree. Please get in touch for more details.
