The newly minted colt was born at the National Stud last week, adding another branch to an illustrious family tree. Valletta Gold is out of Anna Law, the dam of the aforementioned Battaash, and is closely connected to Group Two winner and runner-up in the Diamond Jubilee, Haydock Sprint Cup and Champions Sprint, Tasleet. All that in addition to holding strong blood ties with Group Two success Entlaala. There’s also a staying influence further back in the bloodline thanks to Group One winner and former Champion Stayer Braashee.
“We are delighted with the Advertise foals in general, he is really stamping his stock especially with his class and substance,” said the National Stud’s Joe Callan. “The colt out of Valletta Gold is a good type and with his pedigree, he’s a very exciting prospect for the Phoenix Thoroughbreds team.”
Those sentiments echoed by Phoenix Thoroughbreds CEO Amer Abdulaziz who added:
“This is a very exciting foal to have on the ground. This is a cross we were very keen on and you’d expect that, with luck, he’ll develop into a speedy colt. The National Stud team are pleased with him, and Advertise continues to impress with his first foals. The new arrival is the first foal we’ve bred sired by him and it marks a significant moment for our breeding operation.”
