Sir Prancealot Weanlings to Shine at Great Southern
Sponsored Content - by Tara Madgwick - Tuesday June 11
Cornerstone Stud are looking forward to next week’s Inglis Great Southern Weanling Sale with a stunning draft of 10 youngsters from the first crop of their exciting shuttle sire Sir Prancealot (IRE), a proven source of high class Graded stakes-winners.

Sir Prancealot has some sensational weanlings for Inglis Great SouthernRetiring to stud in 2013, SIR PRANCEALOT quickly shot to fame when taking out the Leading First Season Sire’s title in Great Britain and Ireland and in a clever bit of commercial spin became the "first horse to beat Frankel”.

From humble beginnings and modest expectation, Sir Prancealot put himself on the map very quickly as a sire to watch and has risen to being a well proven stallion with some impressive statistics.

From 105 first crop foals Sir Prancealot has produced 63 winners from 91 runners (70%) and stakes winners to runners ratio of an elite 7%.

Of those stakes-winners, Beau Recall landed her second Grade II with a win in the Distaff Turf Mile in the race that followed the Kentucky Derby. A stone-cold ride by Irad Ortiz Jnr saw Beau Recall give her rivals windburn in the final furlong and it is felt a future Grade 1 win is on the cards this season.

On the same day, but on the California turf at Santa Anita, Lady Prancelaot almost landed her first Graded victory with a second in the Grade III Senorita Stakes. This performance followed hot on the heels of Ginger Nut’s Listed win in April that is delivering Sir Prancelaot with a 2.7 AEI - An enormous return on investment for those that believed in this Danzig free stallion with pre-potent genetics.

A Mr Prospector line sire, Sir Prancealot has 10% stakes-winners to runners when placed over Danehill line mares and his branch of the Mr Prospector sireline (TAMAYUZ & NAYEF) when placed over Danehill line mares has produced 54 runners and 13 stakes-winner!
