Amongst the highlights are
A filly out of Native Picture. Her dam is a Kodiac half-sister to top sprinter Kingsgate Native and from the further family of 1,000 Guineas heroine Las Meninas.
A colt out of excellent producer Katch Me Katie. The daughter of Danehill has already bred six winners including the high-class stayer Nearly Caught – by Galileo’s son New Approach – and the Group 1-placed, Group 2 winner Pale Mimosa.
A colt out of the Listed-placed Neuquen, from the excellent Wertheimer family of Vallee Dansante.
A half-brother to stakes winner Exclusive Potion. Out of the Marju mare Magic Noire, he is also related to the tough Group 1 performers Divisidero and Zindabad.
A half-brother to the stakes-placed Courageous out of the prolific Sri Pekan mare Bella Bella from Oaks Farm Stables. The colt was a €38,000 pinhook as a foal by Willie Browne’s Jamie B Bloodstock.
A filly out of Fol O’Yasmine. The second foal out of a winning daughter of Dubawi, she hails from a family that is fondly known at Blue Diamond Stud; her granddam is Sewards Folly, dam of their high-class sprinter Sayif.
A half-sister to Listed winner Kilimanjaro and a daughter of Middle Persia, herself a Dalakhani half-sister to champion Nayarra, Group 1 performer Gustav Klimt and fellow stakes winners Wonderfully, Mars, Blissful and Cuff. Her third dam is the Prix de Diane heroine Rafha, thereby also making her a relation to Invincible Spirit and Kodiac.
A colt out of the top-class two-year-old Princess Noor (Winner of the Group 3 Princess Margaret Stakes at Ascot, and second in the Group 1 Cheveley Park Stakes) who was purchased at last year’s foal sales for 190,000gns. The daughter of Holy Roman Emperor is from the family of top sprinters Dream Ahead and Fairyland.
A colt out of Group 3 winner Shaden, from the Family of Lahib.
A filly half sister to Stakes winning and Multiple Stakes placed Elusive Beauty, from the Family of Little Treasure.
A colt out of a full sister to Stakes winning Lethal Promise and Stakes placed Promising, Further Family of Diffident.
Decorated Knigh’t first foals were extremely well received last year, selling for up to 190,000gns. The colt in question is out of Group 3 winner Princess Noor and was purchased by Jamie Railton. He will be offered at Tattersalls Book 1 sale.
Decorated Knight’s foals also sold for up to €66,000 at the Goffs November Sale.
Decorated Knight won eight races including the Group 1 Irish Champion Stakes, Group 1 Tattersalls Gold Cup and Group 1 Jebel Hatta.
By Galileo, he is out of Pearling, a sister to champion sires Giant’s Causeway and Freud.
“I have complete belief in Decorated Knight,” Imad Al Sagar explained to the Racing Post last November. “He’s a very special horse with a very special pedigree – his close relation Gleneagles is one of the most successful progeny of Galileo so it’s a stallion’s family.
