Showcasing - Our best sire of 2 year olds

5 posts in this topic

Former Haunui Farm stallion Showcasing (GB) (Oasis Dream) is enjoying a break-out season in Europe in 2018.  Along with siring another G1 winner – Advertise - he has a further four stakes winning 2YO’s to his credit with three of those coming in the last seven days!

Advertise landed the G1 Phoenix Stakes at The Curragh in August.  That was off the back of an impressive victory in the G2 July Stakes at Newmarket having finished runner-up in the Coventry at Royal Ascot second up.  He ended his two-year-old season with a runner-up performance in the G1 Dewhurst Stakes in the middle of October and goes to the paddock one of the best colts in Europe at the present time.

This past week however, has seen Showcasing’s 2YO’s prove formidable in stakes races around Europe, starting with the win of Showout in he Listed Prix Zeddan at Deauville on the 23rd of October.  Next came Mohaather on the 27th of October in the G3 Horris Hill Stakes at Newbury and Devant topped things off yesterday in the G3 Prix Miesque at Maisons-Laffitte.

Weekend racing in New Zealand also saw two further 2 year old stakes performers for Showcasing with Last Sight and Appellant finishing second and third in the Listed Wellesley Stakes respectively.  Three other Showcasing fillies finished 4th, 5th and 6th in the same race.

Last season’s stakes winning 2YO’s Xpression and Bit Lippy have kicked off their 3YO seasons in fine form with Xpression the current favourite for the G1 1000 Guineas whilst Bit Lippy is a leading contender in the 2000 Guineas.

Showcasing did not return to Haunui Farm this season however, he will be well represented at Australasia's 2019 yearling sales whilst his current 2018 foals will be his last Southern Hemisphere crop.

Showcasing had an impressive Saturday yesterday with 4 winners in NZ - 3 at Te Rapa (including a 2 year old )and  1 at Riccarton 

He also had a runner in the Breeders Cup Juvenile Sprint at Churchill Downs last Saturday.

He continues to have regular winners in Singapore so his progeny should International appeal at the pending RTR sale.

I wonder how many of his yearlings will be selected for the Book 1 sale next year.?

According to the RP Whitsbury Manor have upped his fee from 35000 pounds to 55000 , that's a decent hike. Yearlings averaged 110000 at sales in UK and Ireland.

Juddmonte producing so many good stallions, Expert Eye added to roster after last week's BC win at 20k.

Thought Jungle Cat was home for a second yesterday, He's had a good carnival.
