Bought at Tattersalls October Yearling 2016 sale this stunning son of Casamento is half-brother to two Black type horses Just An Idea & Staisenzapenzieri. Both horses have proved themselves to be racy 2yo types. His half-brother, Just An Idea, 3rd in the Dragon Listed Stakes at Sandown, stayed in training as a 3yo with Harry and won his first start of the 2017 season.
The dam EMRELIYA is from a truly wonderful Aga Khan family with every generation packed with Black Type winners. Emreliya herself was unraced but has produced two runners to date both Black type horses. The family includes Ebadiyla, Champion 3yo filly in Ireland as well as The Queen’s homebred filly Estimate winner of the Ascot Gold Cup.
CASAMENTO is by European Champion juvenile Shamardal, also the sire of Lope de Vega. He won the Racing Post Trophy Group 1 and Beresford Group 2 in great style. His first crop of 2yos are tough progressive winners including Noivado, Kings Gift and impressive debutant scorer Glastonbury Song (entered for the Irish 2,000gs).
