Even So | Scoop Dyga

Classic winner Even So (Ire) (Camelot {GB}-Breeze Hill {Ire}, by Danehill), has been sold by Coolmore to Japan for broodmare duties, reported on Saturday.

Lyons's brother and assistant Shane Lyons told, “Even So has gone breeding and has been sold to Japan. She was an absolute lady, had a beautiful Dr Devious-pedigree so hopefully she does well over in Japan for her new connections.

“She was a superstar and to win a Classic on home soil, you couldn't get any higher. It's what dreams are made of and she served us well.”

The April foal was bred by Lynch Bages in Ireland and, sent to trainer Ger Lyons, saluted in the 2020 G1 Juddmonte Irish Oaks last July. She also won the Listed Naas Oaks Trial earlier that month and was third in the G3 Park Express S. Owned by Mrs. John Magnier and Mrs. Paul Shanahan, she retires with a record of 8-3-0-2 and $231,791 in earnings.

Even So is the star foal out of her dam, who won in New Zealand as a 4-year-old. Breeze Hill is a half-sister to Irish champion sprinter Archway (Ire) (Thatching {Ire}), English highweight Dr Devious (Ire) (Ahonoora {GB}), who won the G1 Derby, G1 Dewhurst S., and G1 Champion S. and was runner-up in the G1 Irish Derby, the GSW Royal Court (Ire) (Sadler's Wells) and the SW & GSP Shinko King (Ire) (Fairy King). Another half-sister produced English highweight, G1 Epsom Oaks and G1 German Oaks heroine Dancing Rain (Ire) (Danehil Dancer {Ire}). This is also the family of G1 2000 Guineas hero Saxon Warrior (Jpn) (Deep Impact {Jpn}), G1 Takamatsunomiya Kinen victor Suzuka Phoenix (Jpn) (Sunday Silence) and G1 Emirates S. winner Awesome Rock (Aus) (Fastnet Rock {Aus}).
