|Name:||Venus Citali (GB)|
|Pedigree:||Coastal Path (GB) - Zitali|
'Princess’ as she is nicknamed was bred by Will Ewart and arrived in the stables at the beginning of July 2020. She was broken in by Briony and is now cantering away on the gallops. She is physically strong for a 2yo filly with a tough attitude and we foresee her being precocious enough to run as a 3yo.
Coastal Path sire of the dual Grade 1 winning Bacardys Listed winner C’est Le Bouqet and a half brother to leading French sire Martaline and Reefscape. Lucky to have obtained a filly from the sire as he has now been retired due to fertility issues. Coastal Path was a high class stayer himself winning six races from ten starts with Andre Fabre in France including the Group 2 Prix Chaudenay at three and finished third to Yeats in the 2008 Gold Cup at Ascot. His products made very good money at the sales with Asterion Forlonge reaching £290,000 and now a Grade 1 Hurdle winner rated 155 with Willie Mullins. They are having plenty of successes in France also with Powder Path and Fox Pro both Listed winner over hurdles and Concerto D’ Allen Listed Chase winner.
Venus Citlali is out of Zitali unraced out of Azturk who produced winners Ueueteotl and Huehuecoytle and who was a sister to Azertyuiop and Bipbap.
