There is something for every buyer in the Andalusia Stud draft at this week’s National Two Year Old Sale.
The six horse draft includes a colt by G1 winner Byword from the family of new sire William Longsword, and champions Victory Moon and Imperious Sue (Lot 71), while another in the draft to catch the eye is lot 97, a colt by champion and leading first crop sire Lateral out of a five time winning daughter of the increasingly successful broodmare sire Windrush. This is the same family as multiple G1 winner and Equus Champion Yorker (whose grandsire Rakeen is a half-brother to the sire of Lateral).
Lateral, whose offspring include the G1 winner Bilateral, is also sire of lot 113, a colt out of a five time winning Captain Al mare, as well as lot 277, a colt out of a four time winning half-sister to Listed Sea Cottage Stakes hero Fenerbahce.
Last two in this draft are a pair of colts by the well bred Sadler’s Wells sire Doowaley, whose best runners include classic winner Rei Rei. Lot 225 is out of a winning sister to Oaks winner Villiera, while lot 397 is out of a winning own sister to six time stakes winner Mat Gold and half-sister to G1 SA Classic third Sporting Boy.
