5yo Mare in foal to Kuroshio with FREE nomination for 2022


Lovely mare by Group 1 Winning sire ARCANO. In foal to KUROSHIO (May covering) and also sold with FREE nomination to KUROSHIO for 2022.

She is unraced but her dam ASIYA won 3 races and was placed a further 14 times earning prizemoney of over €55k in the process. She earned an Official Rating of 87, had a peak Racing Post Rating of 91, and retired sound after a career of 44 races over 7 seasons.

She is a half-sister to a filly called BEAUTIFUL CHAOS who has run 3 times for trainer Ross O’Sullivan. She finished 4th in a good Galway maiden during the summer and achieved a Racing Post Rating of 74. She looks like a future winner in waiting. A strong pedigree page full of black type that traces back to champion race mares and broodmares such as SARAH SIDDONS and PRINCESS PATI as well as more recent Group 1 winners EXCELEBRATION, LANCASTER BOMBER and WICKLOW BRAVE.

Her sire ARCANO was a top-class racehorse winning the Group 1 Prix Morny as a 2 year old. At stud he has a winning strike rate of 63% with his runners and has made an excellent start as a broodmare sire. He is already damsire of two Group 1 winning sprinters – SUPREMACY, who won the Middle Park and DRAGON SYMBOL who was first past the post in the 2021 Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot.

With very limited exposure at stud, KUROSHIO has achieved phenomenal results and has established himself as a very promising international sire. He was a Group 2 winning sprinter in Australia and stood for one season in England, in 2015, before returning to Australia. From his single UK crop of 16 runners, he had 8 winners including KURIOUS, who won the Group 3 Coral Charge and the Listed Scurry Stakes, both at Sandown, and was subsequently sold for 900,000 Guineas. Based on these results, he was brought back to Ireland in 2019 and has covered 375 mares in the three years since WITH HIS YEARLINGS SELLING FOR UP TO €120,000.
In the meantime, he has been represented with distinction by the runners he left behind in Australia including SAVATOXL who won both the Group 1 Goodwood and the Group 2 Schillaci Stakes in 2021. Worldwide, he has a Winners To Runners strike rate of 54%.

His first Irish crop will hit the tracks in 2022 and he stands at an advertised fee of €5000 for the upcoming season.


This mare has no issues and is a nice mare to do anything with.
