Hadlow Stud, long time supporter of the National 2YO Sale, will be bringing a small but classy draft to this year’s Emperors Palace National 2YO Sale.
The Mooi River farm’s consignment is made up of five two-two-year-olds, sired by all of Bezrin, Crusade, Flying The Flag, and Redoute’s Promise.
Country Flame (Lot 74) is a daughter of the Danzig horse Bezrin -sire of such high-class gallopers as All Ablaze, Bezanova, Jimmi Choo and Too Phat To Fly from limited opportunities.
This filly is out of a half-sister to the Bezin sired All Ablaze, whose victories included a triumph in the Listed Ibhyai Stakes, and her granddam is a half-sister to the G1 winning two-year-old Mighty Crystal.
Bezrin is also responsible for a filly (Lot 251) out of the five time winner Polonaise, making the filly in question a half-sister to five winners notably dual Emerald Fillies Handicap winner and millionaire Formation, as well as G3 Gold Bowl third place finisher Swarming.
The regally bred Redoute’s Promise is the sire of an unnamed filly (Lot 81) out of the G3 placed Daintree Dancer, herself a daughter of the highly successful Australian sire Mossman. This filly, whose granddam is a full-sister to G2 Greyville 1900 winner Karaka One, hails from the same family as high-class Australian fillies as Asiago, Bendrum and Divorces.
Flag Bearer (Lot 271), a colt sired by Galileo’s blue blooded son Flying The Flag, is a half-brother to Off To Stud Stakes winner Lady Of Kildare, while the Crusade colt (Lot 171) out of the three time winning mare Knock And Announce is out of a three-parts sister to G3 Tony Ruffel Stakes winner Announce Speed.
