Voila Ici (Vwa-la I-c-i) One of the highest-performing horses running in Europe from 2008-2011, Voila Ici is a well conformed stallion with an outstanding pedigree.
He comes from the extremely successful and influential Mill Reef sire-line, and descends from a female line replete with high-class runners and champions. His record includes the group one Premio Roma, the group one Gran Premio di Milano, the group two Prix Maurice de Nieuil, and, in Australia, a second to Ocean Park, in the group one Underwood Stakes, and a third in the group two Eagle Farm Cup. He furthermore retired completely sound, having raced from the age of two until the age of eight, and is completely free of Danehill blood.
His sire, Daylami, one of the best horses of the twentieth century, had a Timeform rating the equal of the great Nijinsky, was top-class from eight furlongs to twelve furlongs, and was the sire not only of Voila Ici, but also Grey Swallow, Indian Days, Timarwa, Super Elegant, and Whispering Gallery. Moreover as a broodmare sire, Daylami, like his half-brother Dalakhani, is excelling with the like of Pierro, James Garfield, Arcano, Hazapour, Suffused, Ambience and the hugely exciting Logician etc. As well as the above his grand sire Doyoun was not only a high-class miler (winning the Two Thousand Guineas), but as a sire he did exceptionally well; amongst his progeny being group/grade one winners Manntari, Manndar, Kalanisi and Margarula, dam of Grand Marshal.
On his dam side, Voila Ici descends from a wonderful family. His dam Far Hope was a stakes-winner in Italy, whilst his grand-dam, Circus Ring, was the champion two-year-old filly in 1981, winning the group two Lowther Stakes and the Princess Margaret Stakes. Circus Ring is furthermore the dam of the unraced Circus Act, who in turn is the dam of the multiple-stakes winning Brave Act, and the grand-dam of multiple grade one winner Viva Pataca. As well as this another daughter of Circus Ring, Rose Of Tralee, is the dam of Serenade Rose, the champion three-year-old filly in Australia 2005/2006, and winner of both the VRC Oaks and AJC Australian Oaks.
In addition, this is the direct family of group one winners Athens Wood, Dibidale, and the extremely successful sire in Japan, Tony Bin.
