By SHOWCASING (Oasis Dream); a Leading Sire of 2YOs with a Stakes winner to runners strike rate of 6.4% is this colt from the TALE OF THE CAT (Storm Cat) mare Estelle. Among Showcasing’s current crop of 2YOs is the outstanding Martin Meade trained colt ADVERTISE who races in the colours of Phoenix Thoroughbreds. Advertise has three wins and two seconds from his five starts to-date and is a winner of the Group One Phoenix Stakes and Group Two Newmarket July Stakes, and ran second in the Group One Dewhurst Stakes on his most recent start.
Estelle is a half-sister to the Group One performer Le Choix (Choisir), who placed second in the Levin Classic. This is also the immediate family of Golden Slipper winner and Champion 2YO DANCE HERO (Danzero).
SHOWCASING has not had any runners from TALE OF THE CAT mares, and his sire OASIS DREAM has had just one – the 2YO winner Pussycat Dream. Of note is that SHOWCASING has had four runners from mares, who, like this colt, are out of mares from a daughter of GENEROUS (Caerleon) and three are winners; 2YO winner and Stakes performer No Education, multiple city winner Handsome Dude, and the Hong Kong winner Shimmer and Shine. This GENEROUS cross has also provided OASIS DREAM with an impressive six winners from six runners.
