Ask is a half brother to Kensington Oval, who has yet to deliver on his undoubted promise, out of a lightly raced half sister to the Queen's Listed winner Fairy Godmother and Group Two Jockey Club Stakes winner Blueprint. The third dam is the Queen's 1974 1000 Guineas and French Oaks winner Highclere.

Ask is the leading earner this year for Sadler's Wells, who has 13 stakes winners amongst his 53 individual winners and, with Galileo and Montjeu leading the way, he leads Danehill on our table of leading sires of sires in 2009.
