Lot 92 – Elisium x One World

Boland Stud - Lot 92

Prepare to be captivated by the promise of a future legend, embodied in the unbeaten two-year-old marvel, Henry Longfellow. This regal scion, born of the illustrious union between Dubawi and Cartier Horse Of The Year Minding, stands as one of the most thrilling prospects of this year. Henry Longfellow’s triumphant streak includes victories in the prestigious Gr.1 Goffs Vincent O’Brien National Stakes and Gr.2 Coolmore Stud Wootton Bassett Irish EBF Futurity Stakes. His triumph over the Gr.1 Phoenix Stakes winner Fuerto Bucanero, where he surged to victory by an impressive five lengths, etches his name among potential stars of the future. This is a classic winner in the making for 2024. However, his brilliance is not a solitary beacon. He emerges from a lineage that consistently produces top-tier performers year after year. Notably, the 2023 Gr.2 Qatar Prix Foy heroine Place Du Carrousel, who also clinched victory in the 2022 Gr.1 Prix de l’Opera Longines, is a testament to this family’s enduring excellence.

Boland Stud is privileged to present a relative of the remarkable Henry Longfellow at the 2023 November Two-Year-Old Sale. Lot 92, a colt of distinguished lineage, is sired by One World, the Gr.1 Sun Met victor, and Equus Champion One World, currently one of the most captivating young stallions in South African stud. This colt shares his lineage with five notable winners, particularly Russian Rock, who triumphed over champions Jet Dark and Tempting Fate in the 2020 Gr.1 Cape Racing Presents The Cape Guineas. Russian Rock’s prize earnings amount to nearly R800,000. Both Russian Rock and the colt on offer trace their lineage back to the remarkably well-related mare Elisium. She is a half-sister to key producers Sweet Emotion and Hoity Toity. Hoity Toity, in turn, is the mother of champion and Gr.1 Coronation Stakes/Gr.1 Matron Stakes winner, Lillie Langtry.
