The impeccably bred The Taj Mahal Horseform, a multiple G2 winner and member of one of the world's best and most current families, will join three other stallion prospects to go under the hammer at the conclusion of Day One of the National Broodmare Sale on May 28.

Winner of the last two runnings of the G2 Zipping Classic at Sandown, The Taj Mahal is by world champion sire Galileo and from the Group winning, champion producer You'resothrilling.


The Taj Mahal is a full brother to G1 winners Gleneagles, Happily and Marvellous and a brother in blood to fellow G1 winner Decorated Knight.

Gleneagles, a champion at two and three in Europe, is standing at Coolmore Stud in Ireland and his first runner Highland Chief was a winner.

"The Taj Mahal was a tough, genuine horse who was unlucky not to win a Group One in Australia," part owner Nick Williams said. "He ran in some of the biggest Group One races in both hemispheres."

"It's not often a horse with such an incredible pedigree has the looks to match. He's an absolutely outstanding individual and his family is high class and very current.

"In my opinion he's the best opportunity for a middle distance stallion in this part of the world since Dundeel."

The other Group performed stallion prospects set to go under the hammer later this month are Bondi (Snitzel-Bondi Blonde), Good Project (Not a Single Doubt-Euchre) and Merovee (Frankel-More Strawberries).

"Never before have we been able to catalogue such a quality line up of stallion prospects at the National Sale," Magic Millions Managing Director Barry Bowditch said.

"All four stallions are impeccably bred and showed great ability on the racetrack," he added. "They look top prospects for any farm."

Snitzel colt Bondi Horseform (Lot 1009) won at two and has raced against the best gallopers during his short career to date.

He was second in the Group One Champagne Stakes at two and beaten a nose in January's $2 million Gold Coast Magic Millions 3YO Guineas.

Chris Waller Racing will present two outstanding prospects - Good Project (Lot 1010) and Merovee (Lot 1011).

Good Project Horseform, a half brother to two international stakes performers, is a G1 winning son of Not a Single Doubt who earned over $1.3 million on the track.

Frankel's son Merovee Horseform is a multiple winner from a short career and was second at group level as a three-year-old.

He is from the Group winner More Strawberries, a half sister to G1 winner and successful sire All American.
