Sire: ALHEBAYEB (IRE)
Dam: MARIA MILENA (GB)
Dam Sire: STRAVINSKY (USA)
An exceptionally attractive and athletic two-year-old colt by Alhebayeb is offered for sale. He has plenty of scope, and in addition to his enormous potential on the flat he could develop into an exciting dual-purpose prospect in due course.
He is out of the Stravinsky mare Maria Milena, who was precocious enough to finish third over six-furlongs on her second start as a two-year-old. She has since had her attentions focused on breeding and produced a handful of foals prior to this Alhebayeb colt.
Her most notable offspring is the useful Irish performer Man Power, who was a €62,000 yearling purchase prior to going into training with Michael O'Callaghan. He finished runner-up to the subsequently stakes-placed Battle of Jericho in a six-furlong Leopardstown maiden on his racecourse debut, and was just a length-and-a-half behind the Grp-3 placed Landshark on his next start. He would go on to finish second twice more before the end of his debut season, earning an official mark of 84 in the process.
Maria Milena is in turn out of the US Listed winner Aswhatilldois, whose numerous winning progeny include the eight-time winner Wiseman's Diamond, whilst the next generation of the family features the dual Listed-winner and Grp-3 placed French Tuition and the high-class two-year-old French Pretender.
Furthermore, Stravinsky is the highly-regarded damsire of Grp/Grade-1 winners such as Rip Van Winkle, Tepin and Lankan Rupee.
The covering sire Alhebayeb was another precocious juvenile, who followed up a Nottingham debut success with a second-place finish in the Listed Windsor Castle Stakes at Royal Ascot and a win in the Grp-2 July Stakes at Newmarket.
Subsequently retired to Tara Stud in Ireland, the son of Dark Angel welcomed his first runners during the 2018 season and he has since forged a reputation as a reliable source of tough and classy operators. His best runners to date are the Irish Listed winning sprinter Lustown Baba and the French mile-and-a-quarter Listed winner and US Grade-2 placed Talk Or Listen. The sire's continuing appeal has seen his progeny auction for up to 75,000gns at public auction within the last 12 months.
