Amazing Maria among 24 fillies and mares to be offered by Sir Robert Ogden
Individuals will be heading into the ring at the Tattersalls December Mares Sale
Amazing Maria, the winner of the Group 1 Falmouth Stakes and Prix Rothschild, will be one of 24 blue chip fillies and mares belonging to Sir Robert Ogden registered to be sold at the forthcoming Tattersalls December Mares Sale.
The owner's homebred daughter of Mastercraftsman, who is in foal to Oasis Dream, will be offered in a draft from Barton Stud and will be sold on the opening two days of the sale, November 29 and 30.
Agent Matt Coleman is overseeing a consignment which will comprise 17 broodmares and seven fillies in training, headed by the Listed-winning and Royal Ascot Group 2-placed Agincourt and the three-time winning three-year-old Turandot, a half-sister to Amazing Maria.
More from the family include Amazing Maria's four-year-old half-sister Golden Hind and close relative Imperial Butterfly. Two-year-old winner Renaissance and Canterbury Tales, a placed daughter of Dark Angel related to the Coventry winner Berkshire Shadow, are others of note.
The broodmares, 14 of which are believed to be in foal, include Listed-winning Mastercraftsman mare Blue Gardenia, carrying to Showcasing, Galileo mare Isabella, in foal to Mastercraftsman, and another classy performer by the same sire in Pandora, who had also visited Mastercraftsman.
Amazing Maria's dam, Messias Da Silva, and the former's Dubawi foal Amazing Grace, in foal to Teofilo, are among the further gems to be offered.
Tattersalls chairman Edmond Mahony said: "Sir Robert has been a huge contributor to British racing, enjoying enormous success over many years, and it is a privilege to have his team of 24 beautifully bred fillies and mares selling at the forthcoming Tattersalls December Sale.
"Sir Robert's fillies and mares will undoubtedly be amongst the highlights of Europe's premier breeding stock sale, and the outstanding multiple Group 1 winner Amazing Maria, who was a favourite of so many when competing and winning at the highest level, will be a headline act."
