Dam Sire: Ashkalani (Ire)
An attractive and strong grey two-year-old gelding is offered for sale at £4,000 ONO by Folly Farm Stud.
This fine specimen is unbroken but extremely well-handled, has a lovely temperament and will make 16.2hh in time. He is a close relation to six-time winner Here's Two being by Hellvelyn out of an Ashkalani mare. A good, considerate and knowledgeable home is essential.
The dam Hound Music won twice at up to just shy of a mile and a half as a three and four-year-old, having placed over sprint trips as a juvenile. Rated 75 at her peak, she demonstrated herself to be a sound, honest and consistent performer, showing her form under a variety of different circumstances and on ground ranging from good to firm to significantly softer. She promises to make an excellent broodmare.
Hound Music is a half-sister to the three-time winning stayer Cunning Act, who was good enough to be rated as high as 92, whilst the next generation of the family features the Grp-2 German 1,000 Guineas runner-up Fabiana, her Listed winning daughter Flemish Duchesse, and the dual Grp-3 and Royal Ascot winning mare Annecdote.
Clearly the pedigree portents are good for this son of Helvellyn, who was only gelded for reasons of convenience, and it is in no way a reflection on his temperament. He displays a calm and relaxed demeanour and is a notably attractive individual that is a fine representation of his sire.
Hellvelyn won the Grp-2 Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot in 2006 and was later second in the Grp-1 Phoenix Stakes. He has consistently shown himself to be a stallion that outperforms his relatively modest £3,000 covering fee, with the pattern winners La Rioja and Mrs Danvers particularly good advertisements.
A point of particular interest is that Hellvelyn's only previous pairing with an Ashkalani mare resulted in the fair performer Here's Two, a six-time winner at up to a mile who has won in each of the last four seasons.
