7 Winners for Showcasing this Weekend

02 October 2017

It’s been a busy weekend for the progeny of Showcasing (GB) (Oasis Dream) with 7 winners in the space of 24 hours, headlined by the Grade Two win of Projected (GB) (Showcasing) in the USA.

Projected, a Juddmonte home-bred son of Showcasing became his sire’s 19th stakes winner when taking out the Grade Two Baltimore/Washington International Turf Cup Stakes over a mile. Having transferred from Andre Fabre’s stable in France, Projected has had seven starts in North America with placings in the Grade Two Pimlico Dixie Stakes and the Grade Three Belmont Poker Stakes prior to Saturday’s victory.

Two-year-old colt Dice Roll (Fr) (Showcasing) was another headline act for his sire over the weekend making it three from four when victorious in the £250,000 Arqana Sales race over a mile at Chantilly.

Four winners in Great Britain on Saturday also added to Showcasing’s Northern Hemisphere haul whilst Show Far Show Good was too good for his opposition in Singapore last night from the stable of Mark Walker.

The European yearling sales season is also starting to heat up with Showcasing’s progeny in high demand. The opening day of the Goffs Orby Sale saw Godolphin go to €460,000 to secure a colt by Showcasing whilst a week earlier, a Showcasing colt became the highest priced lot to ever be sold at the Tattersall’s September Yearling Sale fetching €230,000 to the bid of Michael O’Hagan with the colt destined for the Clive Cox yard.

Haunui Farm’s Mark Chitty says, “It has certainly been a great weekend for Showcasing on the track and those sales result further emphasise Showcasing’s appeal as a truly international Group One stallion.

“He has left four Group or Graded winners in 2017 including his Group One winning filly from last season, Quiet Reflection and Royal Ascot Group One performer Tasleet and on the home front, Princess Rihanna put in the run of the race for third in last week’s Gold Trail. He gets winners week in and week out in Singapore and I’m sure once the tracks improve here in New Zealand, we will see his progeny come to the fore once again as we have in the last three seasons where he was crowned Champion 2YO and First Season Sire, Champion Second Season Sire and, leading 2YO sire by winners last season.”

Showcasing stands at Haunui Farm in 2017 for a fee of $12,000 + GST.
