Brother to Sri Putra debuts at Yarmouth

YARMOUTH'S Bet On Toteplacepot At Maiden Stakes (2.30) today sees the debut of a 150,000gns brother to Eclipse Stakes runner-up Sri Putra. The son of Oasis Dream, named El Wasmi, was bred by Glebe Stud and Partners out of the In The Wings mare Wendylina.

The three-year-old is trained by Clive Brittain for
Saeed Manana having been bought by Rabbah Bloodstock at Tattersalls October Book 1. Wendylina is a half-sister to Prix de Diane Hermes winner Caerlina (by Caerleon).


Another runner, Godolphin's Chat Room by Dubawi, sold for the same amount at the same sale. His dam, Contradictive by Kingmambo, has produced two lightly-raced maidens to date but is a half-sister to Prix Lupin winner Gracioso.

James Fanshawe trains Aomen, a Shamardal gelding who cost only 5,500gns as a foal at the Tattersalls December sale. His dam, Kathy Caerleon by Caerleon, is an unraced half-sister to Chester Vase winner High Baroque.

Polperro, who runs in the colours of HRH Princess Haya of Jordan, cost $350,000 at theKeeneland September yearling sale. He is the second foal of US Grade 1 winner Sand Springs. He is by Kingmambo and his year-older half-brother, Group 3 runner-up Mello Martini, is by Sadler's Wells.

The El Prado filly Phoenix City changed hands for $155,00o as a foal at Keeneland and again for $185,000 at Saratoga as a yearling, latterly knocked down to Rabbah Bloodstock. Trained by Michael Bell for Ali Saeed, she is out of a half-sister to Derby winner Motivator and Coronation Cup third Macarthur.

The John Best-trained five-year-old Deerslayer was the most expensive yearling in the race, at $500,000 at the Keeneland September sale. He has changed hands twice since, for 1,500gns at the Tattersalls Autumn horses-in-training sale as a three-year-old and for £1,000 at Ascot the following year. He was second on his debut this season.
