Dam: CARMELA MARIA (GB)
Dam Sire: MEDICEAN (GB)
A strong and attractive three-year-old gelding by Cannock Chase is offered for sale. He is one of a number of young horses that connections currently have for sale.
This eye-catching and impressive individual has been driven for the last few weeks and is showing a lovely forward going attitude. He is open to vetting and videos are available upon request.
The dam Carmela Maria was a talented dual-purpose performer, winning a mile-and-a-quarter flat handicap as a three-year-old before embarking on a career over hurdles. She was even more successful when her attentions were switched to the winter game, winning four staying handicap hurdles and placing on numerous other occasions.
In addition to the gelding for sale, Carmela Maria has gone on to produce a four-year-old filly by Trans Island and a yearling colt by Dragon Dancer. She is yet to be represented by a runner, but her prospects as a broodmare look strong.
She is one of no less than five winners out of her unraced dam Carmela Owen, and the pedigree traces back within a couple more generations to numerous black-type horses. Furthermore, Medicean's record as a broodmare sire stands up to close scrutiny as his daughters are responsible for Grp-1 winners on the flat and many smart jumpers such as the Grade-3 winning French hurdler Seduction, the Grade-2 placed Ecco and the Grade-1 fourth Alonso.
The covering sire Cannock Chase was a typical Sir Michael Stoute late developer, ultiamtely winning three times in pattern company over middle distances, including the Grade-1 Canadian International as a four-year-old. Subsequently retired to stallion duties in 2017 and now standing at Vauterhill Stud, a small first flat crop in 2020 featured plenty of promising sorts, including the winner Run This Way.
He is only going to come into his own when he starts having runners under NH rules, however, and his stores have sold for up to 27,000gns in the past year. That is an enormous return on his advertised covering fee and a clear indication that the market expects good things from the sire in the future.
Don't miss out on this smashing three-year-old, who combines good looks with a pleasing attitude and winning pedigree. Please get in touch for more information.
