The Champion Worthadd’s first progeny are already hitting the headlines, with his first two-year-old sold at public auction topping the Tattersalls Ireland Ascot Breeze-up Sale at £130,000. Consigned under the mastery of Willie Browne the colt, clearly a standout physical specimen and bred by Skymarc Farm is the son of dual winner Malayan Mist and is from the further family of three-time Gr. 1 Canadian International winner Joshua Tree.
The Tattersalls Ireland Ascot Breeze-up Sale has swiftly cemented itself as the seasonal opener. Still in its infancy the sales has proven a successful source of quality animals, with graduates including Group 1 winning juvenile The Wow Signal.
John Quinn and Al Shaqab, the connections behind The Wow Signal will now team up with the sales topping Worthadd colt with Ross Doyle bidding on behalf of regular client Al Shaqab. After the purchase Doyle said, “He was the physical standout in the sale by a long way, imposing and clearly very athletic”
Worthadd has a highly exciting first season ahead of him with his first runners hitting the racecourse in 2017. He continues to produce outstanding athletes and this early success signals the confidence behind the son of Dubawi’s stallion credentials.
The Irish National Stud wishes congratulations and the best of luck to not only the connections of this sales topper but all owners and breeders who have and continue to support Worthadd.
The Champion by the Champion is coming….
