Illustrious Blue


Description

ILLUSTRIOUS BLUE - A Group 2 winner & Hero of Goodwood.

Boasting a very strong pedigree bred on a cross of leading European milers, this stallion is a talented English Miler (5 wins from 1400m - 1800 m) who could outstay his pedigree.

With earnings in excess of $881,519 and a total of 10 wins from 7 furlongs to 2 miles.

Won 9 times in England (7 at Goodwood) & a first up win over 1777m at Nad al Sheba in Dubai.

Illustrious Blue can boast SHIRLEY HEIGHTS in his female line.

Not only did he win the Gr 2 Goodwood Cup but he was also a winner of the Gr 3 Ascot Sagaro, the Gr 3 Goodwood Glorious & Listed Goodwood Festival Stakes.

He was also Gr 2 & Gr 3 placed 3 times including the Kempton Sept Stakes & Listed placed 6 times.

By Dansili, one of Europe's top Danehill Sires! A top miler himself at 3 & 4, he is the sire of 60 stakes winners including the Prix de l'arc de Triomphe winner in RAIL LINK as well as HARBINGER, winner by 11 lengths of the Ascot King George V1 & Queen Elizabeth.

The first 3 sons of Dansili to go to stud include STRATEGIC PRINCE (17 winners to Gr 1 level) have produced 1st crop juvenile winners in Europe in 2011.

From GYPSY MOTH, herself a Listed winning sprint mare to 1045m, who has produced 6 winners from 7 runners to date. Included in her dam line are ROCK CITY, KERRERA, FIRTH OF LORNE, DUPONT, PACINO, ZACCHARIAH.

ILLUSTRIOUS BLUE registered an astonishing seventh course success at Goodwood culminating in the biggest win of his career in the Gr 2 Goodwood Cup, defeating Electrolyser and Purple Moon by a length & a quarter.

Winning trainer William Knight said "It's the third time he has won at Glorious Goodwood at a different trip each time, so what a star."

ILLUSTRIOUS BLUE has the looks, pedigree and performance for you to breed a sprinter, miler, stayer from in Australia.
