James Armitage’s Sandown Stud, breeders of such top gallopers as Tilbury Fort, French Navy and Magnificent Seven, will be offering three classy two-year-olds at the 2019 Emperors Palace Ready To Run Sale this November.
Short-lived Storm Cat horse Where’s That Tiger is represented in this draft by a half-brother (Lot 11) to the smart stakes performer Action Jackson, and his dam is a winning Jet Master half-sister to the G2 placed Act Fast.
This colt hails from an exceptional female line, with his fifth dam being the immortal French champion, and Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe winner Allez France, and he traces back directly to one of history’s greatest mares, La Troienne.
Tapit’s popular son, and multiple graded stakes winner, Coup De Grace is represented by a colt (Lot 20) from his first crop. This colt, closely inbred to Mr Prospector, Northern Dancer,Terlingua and Secretariat, is a half-brother to four winners, including the dam of G3 Final Fling Stakes winner Brave Move, and his stakes winning dam is a three-parts sister to G3 Lebelo Sprint winner Gold Site.

This well bred colt’s granddam is none other than Broodmare Of The Year On Offer, and this is also the family of champion Dash Along (another three-parts sibling to the dam of the colt on offer).
Well Read (Lot 130) is a filly by proven sire Philanthropist, whose progeny include the likes of Singapore Sling, Sail, The Slade, She’s A Giver, Raven Girl, and Pack Leader.

This filly is a half-sister to the very talented Miss Smarty Pants, and her dam is a stakes placed half-sister to the smart Hong Kong performer Travel Comforts.

Wild Read’s third dam is Fort Wood’s Fillies Guineas winner Dog Rose –a half-sister to multiple G1 winner Lord Shirldor.
