He is from a stakes winning daughter of the Oaks winner Milly Moss.

From the family of Lyphard, Nobiliary and Barcas he is by the Group One winning galloper and top sire Kenmare.

The Special Dane Syndicate is giving a stud a great opportunity to snap up the exciting stallion prospect Special Dane. A Group One winning son of Danehill, Special Dane's best success came in the CF Orr Stakes. Entering stud in 1999 his oldest progeny are now yearlings and have sold for strong prices at sales to date.

The final stallion offering (lot 363) is the former champion galloper Stylish Century. A horse which needs little introduction he is a son of the Sydney Cup winner Double Century and is a half brother to the dam of present day smart performer Finbarr.

At stud his best performers include the stakes performers Alberton Star, Emerging Markets, Buster Jones, Golden Era, Suave Prospect, Runaway, Stylish Mahal, Royal Sencherec, Stylish Dave and Fiordland.

The sale will also feature a dispersal of Rob Ferguson's Torryburn Stud, which will take in a quality group of weanlings, yearlings and broodmares - many of which are in foal to leading sires.
