Mangoustine Relative Catalogued in Auctav May Online Sale

Ourebi will be offered at the Auctav Online Sale in late May | Auctav

Ourebi (Frankel {GB}), who is a half-sister to the dam of G1 French 1000 Guineas heroine Mangoustine (Fr) (Dark Angel {Ire}), has been catalogued as lot 8 in the Auctav May Online Sale on May 25. Consigned by Al Shahania Stud France, the bay is out of GIII Miesque S. heroine Louvain (Ire) (Sinndar {Ire}), herself the dam of GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf victress Flotilla (Fr) (Mizzen Mast), stakes winner Louvakhova (Maria's Mon), and the stakes-placed Big Five (GB) (Frankel {GB}). In addition, Ourebi's half-sister Zotilla (Ire) (Zamindar) is the dam of Group 1 winner Mangoustine. Louvakhova has already celebrated group success as the dam of G3 Gallinule S. hero Crossfirehurricane (Kitten's Joy) and has one other stakes winner.

Bertrand Le Métayer, Racing Manager Europe for Al Shahania Stud, said, “Ourebi has a formidable pedigree, a very present pedigree at Haras des Cruchettes. Following the victory in the Poule d'Essai de Mangoustine, it seemed appropriate to us to take advantage of this magnificent spotlight. Ourebi is a sister to the black-type gelding Big Five who is in training with Francis Graffard. We have a lot of hopes placed in this horse in the long-distance races in the fall. He is a group and even a Group 1 horse.

“Ourebi did not run due to a broken withers at two. This is what led us to preserve her and send her directly to stud at three. Ourebi is more on the “fast” side of the family. She walks very well and she has good feet.”

The stakes-winning second dam Flanders (Ire) (Common Grounds {GB}) is also the dam of G1 Betfred Sprint Cup winner G Force (Ire) (Tamayuz {GB}).

He added, “It is a very lively family, especially with Flotilla who has a very beautiful 3-year-old by Dubawi (Ire), Safaria, currently in training with Francis Graffard. We then have a 2-year-old colt and a yearling filly by American Pharoah and a foal colt by Sea The Moon (Ger). There is also another Ourebi sister, Camerone (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), who has a very nice 3-year-old by Fastnet Rock (Aus), named Solebay (Fr) in training with Edouard Monfort.”

The online auction will last from 6-7 p.m. on May 25. For the full catalogue, please click here.
