A Group-winning breeding prospect and three four-year-old geldings with untapped jumping potential have been added to the Summer Sale catalogue through the Wild Card system.
Offered as a breeding prospect by Ecurie des Chaumes, this four-year-old filly won the Gr.3 Prix de Ris-Orangis over 1200 metres last year from a competitive field of older races including the proven sprinters FINBSURY SQUARE, LOVE SPIRIT, CATCALL and GAMMARTH. She had previously run a close 3rd in the Gr.3 Prix Texanita and a head 2nd in the L. Prix Saraca as a juvenile.
As his name (“half-bred”) suggests, this four-year-old gelding is an AQPS. Offered by trainer François Nicolle, he has been placed in all his three starts this season, culminating with a victory over hurdles on his latest attempt. Still a novice in both disciplines, this son of promising National Hunt sire Gris de Gris from the family of Gr.2 Cheltenham International Hurdle winner OSANA and Gr.1 Punchestown Gold Cup hero NOTRE PERE has a lot going for him.
This lightly-raced four-year-old didn’t make it to the races at three but has improved rapidly this season, winning in style last Friday over the Auteuil hurdles for young trainer Guillaume Lassaussaye.
A very exciting National Hunt prospect, unbeaten in two outings in bumper races. Consigned by RH Bloodstock and in training with Fabrice Foucher, Dortmund Park is a four-year-old AQPS by the proven jumping influence Great Pretender, the sire of Ptit Zig and Benie Des Dieux among others. He made a winning debut at Le Lion d’Angers, scoring by three lengths, and extended his winning margin to 7 lengths in the Grand Prix des AQPS, June 13th, where he beat some seriously more experienced rivals.
They join MADIVA (lot 340), LA GOMMEUSE (lot 350), VARGAR (lot 355), DEFY DE MEE (lot 370), BALLYWOOD (lot 375), CHEF D’EQUIPE (lot 380), DARK CAVIAR (lot 385) and HELL BOY (lot 390).
