Breeders of such standout performers Gypsy’s Warning, Surabi, Romany Prince and the G1 winning half-siblings Malteme and Wendywood, Rathmor Stud will be offering a superb consignment at the 2019 Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale this month.
Rathmor’s draft includes yearlings by outstanding stallions Frankel, Captain Al, Dynasty and Var, as well as lots by such exciting and popular young sires Coup De Grace and Global View, while the blue blooded Unbridled’s Song horse Noble Tune has six in the Rathmor draft.
Most intriguing of the Rathmor draft is Juan Carlos (Lot 182), the only yearling on sale by unbeaten superstar and international sire sensational Frankel. This is a colt with a real stallion’s pedigree, with his dam being a winning ¾ sister to four time G1 winner and successful Coolmore sire Mastercraftsman with other successful stallions from this family including the likes of Broad Brush and Capote.
Deceased local champions Captain Al and Dynasty are also represented in the Rathmor draft. The Captain Al colt Captain Who (Lot 240) is out of a daughter of the world’s premier sire Galileo and Breeders’ Cup winning champion Eliza, while Dynasty’s son Gotitall (Lot 25) is out of a winning half-sister to G2 winner and successful stallion Jump Start as well as to the dam of Claiborne Farm’s unbeaten G1 winning sire Mastery.
