Sire: BOBBY'S KITTEN (USA)
Dam: DANLIA (IRE)
Dam Sire: LANDO (GER)
A handsome, strong and athletic yearling colt by the exciting first season sire Bobby's Kitten is offered for sale at £4,000 plus VAT.
A March foal, this well-grown (already 15hh) and well-handled individual is out of the Gestut Fahrhof-bred seven-year-old Lando mare Danlia. She was a winner in Germany at three years and was smart enough to finish fifth of 12 in a Listed race at Hannover; her profile and pedigree suggest that a bright breeding career awaits.
Danlia is a half-sister to Drummer, who was twice Grp-2 placed prior to selling for €200,000 to race in the US, and Dalila, who earned black-type in Italy. Their dam Douala, who was sired by the great Dubawi, was Listed-placed, whilst the family extends back to the Champion German Two-year-Old Filly Diasprina, who went on to produce 11 winners including two further Champions.
Danlia produced one foal prior to the youngster available for purchase, though regrettably he passed away due to an accident as a yearling.
The sire Bobby's Kitten was a top-class and highly versatile performer over four seasons. Initially trained by Chad Brown in the US, he won a Grade-3 as a two-year-old, captured the Grade-1 Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint at three (the only horse of his age group to do so), and later took a Listed sprint at Cork by eight-and-a-half lengths on his only start for Dermot Weld.
A son of the outstanding Kitten's Joy, Bobby's Kitten was subsequently retired to Lanwades Stud, and his advertised covering fee was £12,500 when the colt for sale was conceived in 2018.
He continues to be resident at the Newmarket stud, and has made a highly encouraging start with his first-crop runners in recent months. At the time of writing he has had four individual winners and seven placed runners, from just 15 starters, so his reputation and the residual value of his stock seem sure to rise.
This fabulous yearling colt has plenty of two-year-old form in his pedigree, but also the constitution and looks to suggest he will continue to progress with time and distance. He is extremely competitively priced, so please don't delay and get in touch for more information now!
The colt is blessed with a lovely temperament, has shown himself to be good with the farrier, and is currently turned out by day and stabled by night. He is used to the horsewalker, has been introduced to the bridle, roller and side reins, and has had his first few lunging lessons, in which he has demonstrated lovely paces. He is ready to go ahead and break in now, though alternatively he could be turned away for the rest of the summer if preferred.
