Sire: Geordieland (Fr)
Dam: Viking Treasure (GB)
Dam Sire: Generous (Ire)
An exceptional 2019 foaled colt by Geordieland is offered for sale. He has been well-handled to this point, weighing 60kg at birth and now standing at 15.2hh at one years old. He is an imposing horse, a very good mover, and displays an excellent temperament.
The sire was a multiple Grp-2 winning stayer, who was placed in no less than three Ascot Gold Cups. His early runners since retiring to stud have included the 140-rated bumper and hurdles winner Geordie B, whilst his promising young point-to-point performers Straw Fan Jack and River Tyne sold for £52,000 and £50,000 respectively in major auction rings.
The dam Viking Treasure was unraced and has yet to be represented by a runner, but detailed analysis of her pedigree suggests she is a very promising mare. Her sire Generous, the 1991 Derby winner, is a potent source as a NH damsire, his daughters having given the Graded winners Liskennett, Rigour Back Bob, Devils Bride and Modus.
Viking Treasure's unraced dam Sovereignsflagship was a full-sister to the Grade-2 winning hurdler/chaser Hell's Bay, whilst the next generation of the family features the legendary siblings Viking Flagship and Flagship Uberalles. Between them they won 38 races, including the Champion Chase three times and a dozen Grade-1s, whilst their half-sister Glenstal Flagship was also a high-class performer over hurdles.
Unsurprisingly there is a commercial element to this page too, as numerous members of this family such as Hell's Bay, Flagship Princess, Kings Flagship and The Risky Viking have sold for north of £50,000 over the years. Those figures are not simply for archivists either, as Viking Treasure's half-brother Connect Four auctioned for £82,000 at the 2017 Goffs UK Spring Store Sale.
This colt is a superb-looker, who has impressed enormously to this point of his life and is extremely well-behaved. Add this to a very compelling pedigree and the fact he is by a sire that is quietly building a good reputation and we can expect interest to be high at £8,000. Don't miss out!
