The Cornerstone Stud-based sire Sir Prancealot (Tamayuz) sired his first Group / Grade 1 winner on Saturday when his Richard Baltas-trained daughter Lady Prancealot landed the American Oaks (Gr 1, 1m2f) at Santa Anita.

Jockey Joe Bravo took Lady Prancealot along the rail and she surged late to defeat Mucho Unusual (Mucho Macho Man) by half a length, with Pretty Point (Point Of Entry) the same distance back in third.

Imported to the US from Europe in the summer of 2018, Sir Prancealot improved as a 3-year-old and scored a Grade 3

Lady Prancealot is the first foal out of the unraced mare Naqrah (Haatef) who herself is a half-sister to Group 2 winning mare Baqah (Bahhare), dam of Grade 1 winner Almanaar (Dubawi). She was bred in Ireland by Tally-Ho Stud and bought for €9,500 at the Tattersalls Ireland September Yearling Sale. Her sire, Sir Prancealot, stood at Cornerstone Stud in South Australia for a fee of $14,300 (inc GST) this year. He has 3 lots catalogued for the Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale next year.
