Ahead of the 2021 Flat Season, Deva Racing is offering shares for sale in an exciting two-year-old colt by Bated Breath. Purchased at the Tattersalls December Yearling Sale, he is out of the prolific winner-producing Nayef mare Olympic Medal and looks a first-rate prospect.
The dam was bred and raced by The Queen prior to starting her broodmare career. She has gone on to produce four winners, including her highest–selling progeny Wajeeh, who reached an eyewatering 250,000gns at Tattersalls Book 1 before going on to win a maiden for Richard Hannon.
Such heady figures can be attributed to Olympic Medal’s exemplary pedigree. She is a half-sister to the high-class racemare Phantom Gold, who won three times in pattern company including the Grp-2 Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot, and the US Grade-3 winning mare Fictitious.
Phantom Gold’s descendants include a host of black-type performers, most notably the stakes-winners Daphne, Fabricate, Golden Stream, Momentary and Sextant, whilst another of Olympic Medal’s siblings is the dam of last season’s Royal Ascot and Grp-2 winning juvenile Tactician.
Clearly hailing from a super family, this colt’s appeal is boosted further by the continually burgeoning reputation of his sire Bated Breath.
