An attractive yearling colt by Swiss
Spirit out of a Showcasing mare is
offered for sale at £3,000 ONO.
The dam of this March-foaled youngster is Prima Pagina, who was a narrow second over seven-furlongs at Wolverhampton as a three-year-old. She unfortunately did not race again, leaving her potential unfulfilled, but her prospects as a broodmare look bright.
Prima Pagina is a half-sister to the prolific Gratzie, who won six-times in the UK and was twice fourth in Listed company, before going on to win a further four races in the US. Meanwhile, their dam La Gazzetta is a half-sister to the Grp-2 Mill Reef Stakes winner Cool Creek. The extended family is teeming with black-type performers.
The sire Swiss Spirit has developed a reputation as a useful source of fast and precocious performers.
He was a Grp-3 winning sprinter during his days on the racetrack and hails from the excellent family of Swiss Lake, Swiss Diva et al. He has sired the winners of well over 150 races, including 100+ performers such as Helvetian, Street Parade and Swissterious.
It is also important to note that both of his runners born by daughters of Showcasing - namely Spirit Of The Sky and Schumli - have been winners.
This last detail is hardly surprising, as the extremely fashionable Showcasing is now developing a significant reputation as a broodmare sire. Three-quarters of his runners in that division are now winners, including the Listed scorer Avengers Queen and fellow stakes performers Think Big and American Lady.
This nicely put-together colt offers buyers a very good opportunity to purchase a well-related and precociously bred yearling at a competitive price.
