Lot 110 – Arcetri Dawn x Soqrat

Boland Stud - Lot 110

Unveiling the Shining Star

As the sun rises over the majestic Boland Stud, a new star emerges in the firmament of thoroughbred excellence. We are thrilled to present to you Lot 110, a colt of extraordinary potential, sired by none other than the magnificent Soqrat – an Equus Champion and multiple Gr.1 winner. Soqrat’s progeny have already dazzled the world, fetching impressive prices at the 2023 National Sale, with an average of R499,000 and a top price of R700,000 for the colt out of Natural Beauty.

From the illustrious Danehill male line and tracing its roots to the esteemed champion sire Linamix, Soqrat showcased his brilliance early on, capturing the Gr.1 Premiers Champion Stakes and being named Equus Champion at the tender age of two. His glory knew no bounds, and at three, he proved his mettle by winning both the Gr.1 Cape Guineas and Gr.1 H F Oppenheimer Horse Chestnut Stakes. This esteemed lineage guarantees unparalleled speed and prowess. Boland Stud now presents a scion of this greatness – a colt that hails from a captivating female line, destined to ignite the tracks with brilliance. A half-brother to the illustrious five-time winner, Time To Roll, this colt’s lineage is woven with excellence. His dam, Arcetri Dawn, shares her sire Bel Esprit with the legendary unbeaten Australian icon, Black Caviar, among others.

Superstar – Black Caviar

Bel Esprit, a dual Gr.1 winner himself, has proven to be an outstanding broodmare sire, with his daughters producing the earnings of over $60 million. This impressive stallion has sired top-class Gr.1 winners like Beauty Generation, Costa Viva, and Ole Kirk. Arcetri Dawn, a testament to her heritage, is a half-sister to the exceptional racemare, Arcetri Pink – another offspring of a Danehill line stallion, much like Soqrat. Arcetri Pink’s glowing record includes the Gr.2 Gauteng Fillies Guineas and the Gr.2 Ipi Tombe Challenge, alongside her triumphs as the runner-up in the Gr.1 Empress Club Stakes. This prestigious mare’s legacy has continued through her offspring, notably the speedy Milkwood Stakes winner, Iris. Delving deeper into Arcetri Pink’s lineage, we encounter the illustrious Galileo, arguably the greatest stallion in history. As a broodmare sire, Galileo’s daughters have produced nearly 300 stakes winners, including the prestigious Gr.1 Betfred Derby winner, Auguste Rodin, and the revered sire, Night Of Thunder.
