Some lucky person is going to own a full sibling to Mystery Whisper, Phillip Dutton’s 2012 London Olympic mount, not to mention the dam herself. Socialite R, Mystery Whisper’s dam, is in foal to Richmeed Medallion, Mystery Whisper’s sire, AND she’s up for auction in Australia.

Mystery Whisper won both Prix St. Georges and Intermediate I classes at pure dressage shows in Australia before coming to the States to represent Team USA at the Olympic Games. That alone is reason enough to wish you could win the lottery today so you could buy a full sibling and his mom, but check out some of her other babies:

  • Jewels Magic Light, a mare by Jive Magic. This mare is another baby with pure dressage talent like Mystery Whisper and is heading toward Grand Prix level.
  • Brigalow R, by Bao Lack, the Thoroughbred sire of Shane Rose’s Beijing Olympic horse All Luck. Future superstar eventer?
  • A filly just weaned, by Jaguar Mail, who jumped at the 2008 Beijing Olympics for Sweden with Peter Ericson. Can I get in line for that one, too?

Socialite R’s sire Salute also sired Stirling Stilton and Victory Salute, both of whom represented Australia at the World Equestrian Games in pure dressage in 2002 and 2010, respectively. Salute also sired Staccato, who has been ranked as the top eventing stallion in the world in past WBFSH rankings.

So now that we’re all here together in a collective pile of drool, go check out the auction website. Auction of the Stars will be held next week on June 14 and 15 in Maraylya, New South Wales. American buyers can place bids over the phone, according to Heath Ryan, who is helping to run the auction. For more information, contact Heath at +61 417 656 636 at [email protected].
