This smart son of Land Force was purchased from Book 2 of the Tattersalls Yearling Sale by Anthony Bromley of Highflyer Bloodstock for 35,000gns and we are delighted to offer him for sale.

This colt is from the first crop of yearlings by Group 2 winner, Land Force. Trained by Aidan O’Brien, Land Force was a precocious and tough two-year-old. He broke his maiden on the second time of asking at the Curragh before stepping up to pattern company. He was unlucky to be beaten half a length in the Group 2 Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot before going on to land the Listed Tipperary Stakes ahead of the Group 2 Richmond Stakes at Glorious Goodwood. His stock has been extremely well received at the yearling sale this year, realising prices as high as 180,000gns and they have been purchased by the likes of Shadwell, Alex Elliot, Rabbah Bloodstock and Richard Knight.

The dam, Olvia, was a stakes performing two-year-old herself, and retired to stud with an official rating of 100. Since then, she has produced four winners from six runners, including this season’s stakes performing two-year-old, Crackovia, who looks a progressive type for next year.

“Land Force yearlings have been extremely well received which has meant that they have been hard to buy, so I’m delighted to have secured this colt. He is a smart, racy sort who has the pedigree to match and I hope he will be a precocious two-year-old like his sire”, Ed Dunlop
