Listed winner We Are Ninety will be offered in-foal to Sottsass with her Calyx filly foal at foot The final instalment of the Brittas House Stud dispersal is headed by the eight-year-old Listed winning mare WE ARE NINETY, who is offered in-foal to Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe winner SOTTSASS and with a filly foal at foot by CALYX, the first progeny of the brilliant Group 2 Coventry Stakes winner and son of exceptional young sire KINGMAN to be offered at auction.
WE ARE NINETY’s half-sister by TEN SOVEREIGNS will also be the first foal by the dual Group 1 winning sprinter to be offered at auction, and both provide an opportunity for breeders to access a family cultivated with great success by the late Peter Magnier, who bred the Group 1 winners LISTEN and SEQUOYAH from their grandam BRIGID.
The Brittas House Stud dispersal also includes the GALILEO mares INNOCENT AIR and ZEE ZEE GEE, who will be offered in foal to ZOFFANY and NO NAY NEVER respectively. ZEE ZEE GEE, a daughter of the Group 1 winner ZEE ZEE TOP from the family of the great REPROCOLOR, will be joined by her yearling filly by NO NAY NEVER and the dispersal is completed by the dual winner COMBINE, a four-year-old daughter of ZOFFANY out of the Group 3 placed UNITY, who has been covered by SEA THE MOON.
The headline act amongst the National Hunt prospects in the sale is DARK RAVEN, currently the top-rated four-year-old bumper horse in Ireland courtesy of a hugely impressive winning debut in a recent Leopardstown NH Flat Race for Willie Mullins and Patrick McCormack, and amongst the likely favourites for the €100,000 Tattersalls Ireland George Mernagh Memorial Bumper.
DARK RAVEN will be joined by the James McAuley trained BEHIND THE WALL, a taking recent winner on his first start over hurdles at Limerick and a half-brother to the NH Listed performer MARIA MAGDALENA. Culworth Grounds Farm will also offer a well-bred store by NO RISK AT ALL, the sire of Champion Hurdle winner EPATANTE and ALLAHO. The four-year-old gelding hails from the family of successful National Hunt sire JUKEBOX JURY.
Entries with good form on the flat include the Joseph O’Brien-trained FALSARON, a three-year-old colt by NO NAY NEVER who placed behind the Group 3 Tyros Stakes winner MILITARY STYLE at two and showed plenty of promise when runner-up at Dundalk on Friday.
The sale will also feature Eve Johnson Houghton’s progressive three-year-old PERCY WILLIS, a son of SIR PERCY from the family of Group 1 winners MOHAATHER and ACCIDENTAL AGENT who has been placed on both his starts this year.
