LEXINGTON, Ky.—Bidding is now open for the “Cloudy Dancer Flash Sale,” a one-horse online auction on Fasig-Tipton Digital.  

Cloudy Dancer (GB) is the dam of Shareholder, impressive winner of Royal Ascot’s Norfolk S. (G2) this past Thursday for Wathnan Racing and trainer Karl Burke.

Bidding on Cloudy Dancer (GB) will close this Friday, June 28, at 2 PM ET.

A two-year-old colt by leading US-based sire Not This Time, Shareholder is now undefeated in two career starts.  He won his debut on June 8 at Beverley, and then subsequently captured the Norfolk S. (G2), powering home to a one-length victory at Royal Ascot 12 days later.  He was purchased by agent Richard Brown for Wathnan Racing for €460,000 at a breeze-up sale in May.

A possible next target for Shareholder in the Sumbe Prix Morny (G1) at Deauville, said Burke immediately following the Norfolk.

Shareholder’s victory also earned him a guaranteed start in the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint via the Breeders’ Cup Challenge “Win and You’re In” Series.

Just eight years old, Cloudy Dancer (GB) is a daughter of prominent European sire Invincible Spirit (IRE).  Her stakes winning dam Ronaldsay (GB) has also produced Gale Force Ten (GB), winner of the Jersey S. (G3) and second in the Irish Two Thousand Guineas (G1), as well as stakes winner Rousay (IRE). Her immediate family includes Irish Champion Bianca Nera (GB) as well as international graded/group stakes winners Pickle (GB), Beauly (GB), and Missed the Cut.

“This is a unique opportunity to purchase a young mare that is the dam of a recent Royal Ascot group stakes winning two-year-old,” said Leif Aaron, Fasig-Tipton Director of Digital Sales. “She was not bred this year, so she is ready to be bred early on Southern Hemisphere time or at the start of the 2025 breeding season in the Northern Hemisphere.”

Shareholder is just the second foal from Cloudy Dancer (GB).

Cloudy Dancer (GB) is consigned by Frankfort Park Farm, agent for Skyfall Thoroughbreds LLC.
