Dam Sire: GENEROUS (IRE)
An impressive-looking unbroken two-year-old colt, by Danehill Dancer's son Aeroplane, is offered for sale.
This well-made individual was homebred and is easy to deal with having been handled from birth. He is good with the farrier, has no vices, no injuries and no health conditions.
He is the first foal out of the Generous mare Always Roses, who won four times between the flags in the point-to-point field, as well as running under rules on the flat and over jumps. She is a sibling of the prolific Dream Garden, who won three chases under rules as well as numerous points, and the seven-furlong flat winner Heaven's Gates.
They were products of the four-time winner Arcady, who was a half-sister to the dual Grp-3 winner Atavus, the Imperial Cup winner Olympian - who famously landed the Coral Cup at the Cheltenham Festival just four days later - and the Listed-placed two-year-old Anchorite, who also finished fourth in the Grp-1 Racing Post Trophy (now known as the Vertem Futurity).
Their dam Elysian was runner-up in the Nassau Stakes at Glorious Goodwood and the extended pedigree features several more black-type earners under both codes.
This extraordinarily versatile family has regularly punched above its weight, and the introduction of the potent stallion Aeroplane into the gene pool can only advance matters.
A son of the great Danehill Dancer (stallion-making sire of Mastercraftsman, Fast Company, Choisir and Jeremy), Aeroplane was a high-class performer during his racing days. He won twice and finished fourth in the Listed King Charles II Stakes as a three-year-old (earning a peak OR of 105), before earning black-type honours as a five-year-old and winning four more races throughout the rest of his career.
He now stands at Eisenfarn Stud in Southwest Wales and has proven himself a capable stallion despite limited opportunities. From just a handful of runners he is responsible for the hurdles winner Flight To Nowhere, who has also placed over fences on several occasions, and Picks Flight, who was a narrow second in a bumper on his only start.
Aeroplane can evidently pass on race-winning ability to his progeny, and this athletic two-year-old hails from an excellent tail line, so his future promises plenty. Please get in touch for further details.
