Lot 99 – Excellent x Ideal World

Boland Stud - Lot 99

Are you ready to step into a world of extraordinary possibilities and unparalleled excellence? We present to you a racing prospect like no other – Lion’s Share, an Ideal World colt who is poised to take the racing world by storm. In the world of luxury racing, the name Ideal World is synonymous with class, and Lion’s Share is no exception. Classy filly Coral Bay, a progeny of Ideal World, displayed impeccable form during her two-year-old season. She secured victory in two of her four starts and left an indelible mark by conquering both the Listed Kenilworth Fillies Nursery (now a Gr.3 race) and the Listed Irridescence Stakes in her final two outings as a juvenile. Among those she defeated were subsequent Gr.2 Fillies Guineas winner Santa Clara and the multiple stakes winner, Helen’s Ideal. Now, imagine owning a colt who shares the same bloodline as the high-class Coral Bay. Boland Stud proudly offers Lot 99, Lion’s Share, at this year’s November Two Year Old Sale. Lion’s Share, named aptly for the excellence he represents, is the son of Ideal World and the impressive four-time winning Fort Wood mare, Excellent. It’s worth noting that Excellent is a full-sister to Bonze, the dam of the illustrious Coral Bay.

Lion’s Share carries the same Ideal World/Fort Wood cross that produced not only Coral Bay but also a roster of fellow stakes winners, including Helen’s Ideal, Irish Pride, Mount Laurel, Peep Show, and Persian Rug. This cross is reminiscent of Ideal World’s champion daughter, Smart Call, whose dam, Good Judgement, was sired by Fort Wood’s champion son, Horse Chestnut. Fort Wood, the broodmare sire of Lion’s Share, stands as a testament to excellence in the breeding world. His daughters have produced numerous Gr.1 winners, including Capetown Noir, Captain America, Cherry On The Top, Malmoos, Marinaresco, Real Princess, and William Longsword. Moreover, Lion’s Share’s granddam boasts a remarkable lineage, being a four-time winning daughter of the outstanding sprinter and influential sire, Choisir. This colt is not just exceptional; he is a tapestry of racing greatness. Lion’s Share is closely inbred to the legendary stallion Danehill, a breed-shaping sire whose inbreeding has produced a lineage of Gr.1 winners. His legacy includes current Australian star Amelia’s Jewel, Middle Park Stakes winner Astaire, 1000 Guineas winner Cachet, and Irish Oaks winner Even So.
