We recently highlighted the magnificient job Rubiton was doing as a broodmare sire. We can happily say that our old marvel in Umatilla is leaving his own impression on the broodmare sire rankings of Australia.
The last two weekends racing in Melbourne have highlighted the wonderful traits and talent that Umatilla possessed himself. It is this talent that he has passed on as not only a sire but now as a broodmare sire. The last two weekends racing in Melbourne have seen two highly talented sprinters in Catapulted (G3 Rubiton Stakes Winner) and Diplomatic Force showcase the talents of Umatilla as a broodmare sire.
With the above in mind and with a view to the future we strongly recommend that you view within our draft three yearlings all out of Umatilla mares that we have heading to next weeks Inglis Premier Yearling Sale.
Lot 84 - Bay Colt Not A Single Doubt x Leisure Pass. By a sire who is doing a terrific job and from a half sister to three Group winners. This colt is bred on the same Danehill - Umatilla cross that has produced Catapulted.
Lot 163 - Brown Filly Elvstroem x Ocoee. By the same sire as Carrara, Viking Hero, Viking Legend, Innocent Gamble, etc from a sister to the stakes performed Oronoko-Joy Fay Fay (H.K.)
Lot 665 - Bay or Brown Filly Churchill Downs x Time Atilla. By Danehill's highly promising sire son who has already produced Emerald Downs (Mooneey Valley winner and 2nd in 2011 Inglis Premier) and other metropolitan performers in Bladon and Besa Bola. This filly comes from the family of Butternut & Boner.Back
