Proclamation’s first foals to sell at Newmarket 18/11/08

A number of Proclamation’s first crop are set to go under the hammer next week, with 23 weanlings catalogued to sell at Tattersalls December Foal Sale, which starts on Tuesday, 25th November and runs until Saturday (29th).

Lot 1437 will not appear to the final day of the sale but when she does, she’s bound to attract attention as the Trickledown Stud-consigned filly is a half-sister to Forunately, the winner of seven races, including two Listed contests. Their winning dam Lucky Dip, by Tirol, has produced four winners to date.

Another extremely well-made filly, selling as lot 400, is worth taking a second look at. The daughter of Naivety is part of the Overbury draft and hails from the family of Melbourne Cup winner Jeune.

Just three lots into the first day of trade comes a colt out of Princess Oberon (lot 263). A six-time winner herself, the Fairy King mare has bred three winners to date.  Later that same day comes another colt (lot 398), grey like his sire and out of the Machiavellian mare Sydney Star, who is herself out of a winning half-sister to Godolphin’s Prix d’Ispahan winner Best Of The Bests. The colt, whose two-year-old Red Ransom half-sister is in training with Ed Vaughan, was bred by Peter Onslow and is consigned by Bumble Mitchell.

Also on Tuesday are the Overbury Stud-consigned duo selling as consecutive lots (436 and 437), a filly out of Hiwaayati and a colt from Ladykirk. The unraced Hiwaayati, a half-sister to Stakes winners Great Commotion and Lead On Time, already has some black type next to her name courtesy of her daughter Sweet Emotion, who was Listed-placed and has since produced G1 Racing Post trophy runner-up Winged Cupid. Ladykirk was a winner at two and has produced two winners from three runners.

On Wednesday, a half-brother to Bertolini’s six-time winner Mac Gille Eoin goes through the ring (lot 550) as does a half-brother to the dual winner Art Master (lot 608), who was fourth in the G1 Racing Post Trophy last year.

Shaieef has been a consistent producer with seven winners from nine runners. Her dam is a half-sister to the great Shergar and Shaieef’s most recent offspring, a colt consigned by New England Stud, is set to be offered as lot 664.

Proudfoot’s Proclamation colt, consigned by Beechgrove Stud, will not appear until late on Wednesday evening (lot 755) but is from a very active family. His half-sister Head Over Heels won the Listed St Hugh’s Stakes at Newbury and another half-sister has produced the G3 Fred Darling Stakes winner Penkenna Princess.

Jusoor, has had just two foals to date. He first, by Nayef,  made 85,000gns at this sale last year, while her second by Procalamtion, another potential gem from the Trickledown consignment, is to sell on Thursday as lot 947. Jusoor is a half-sister to the French Group Three winner Luna Mareza and their dam Lunamaya is in turn a full-sister to former Champion two-year-old in France, Long Mick, and a half-sister to the recently pensioned but still highly influential stallion Linamix.
