Date of Birth: 03 Apr 2019
Dam Sire: Chevalier
A cracking bay April 2019 delivered colt by Alhebayeb out of a well-related Chevalier mare is offered for sale.
The sire, himself a son of the outstanding Dark Angel, won on racecourse debut at two before finishing second in the Listed Windsor Castle Stakes at Royal Ascot and winning the Grp-2 July Stakes on his next two starts.
He continued to show smart form until four years of age and retired to Tara Stud in Ireland with many admirers. His first crop emerged onto racecourses in 2018 and, although he got off to a slower than anticipated start, a flurry of winners in the second half of the year boosted his figures.
That trend has continued since, with several of his runners developing at three and going on to show useful form. These include the mile and a quarter Listed winner and multiple Group-placed Talk Or Listen and the 97-rated dual winner Migration.
The dam Taispeantas ran just a handful of times, but any concern at the depths of her racing record is more than made up for by a smart pedigree.
She is out of the five-time winner (including Queen Alexandra Stakes at Royal Ascot) and Listed-placed Easy To Please, who is in turn a sibling of the Grp-3 Concorde Stakes heroine Pernilla.
Taispeantas is therefore a three-parts sister to the dual Listed-winning two-year-old Azra, who was also placed in the Grp-1 Moyglare Stud Stakes and Grp-1 National Stakes. Azra has gone on to produce the Listed winner Einsteins Folly, whilst her further offspring and descendants include the Grp-2 Rockfel Stakes runner-up Atasari, the Italian Listed winner and Grp-2 placed Azari and the Listed-placed Sisene.
This family is also notable for producing smart NH or dual-purpose performers. For instance, under the aforementioned second dam Easy To Please, we find the dual winning 133-rated hurdler and Listed-placed flat performer Morga.
This colt is blessed with an eyecatching pedigree, as the product of a precocious sire whose progeny are developing granted more time and distance than you might expect, and a mare with multiple black-type relations. This combination seems sure to result in a talented performer, who is available for purchase at a competitive price.
