This colt was purchased at the Osarus Yearling Sale in France and qualifies for 'French premiums'. France is well known for its lucrative system of Owners’ premiums on top of already generous prize-money. On the flat, a 2 or 3 year old can earn an extra 64% on top of the race purse, so we would expect to be taking full advantage of this!

GEORGE VANCOUVER is a first season sire, who raced for Coolmore, which suggests that his outstanding genes could set him in good stead as a commercial stallion. This colt looks sharp, strong and early, in fact he has a month or two advantage over most of his age in that he was born on February 12th. His dam is by Chosir, who is renowned for speed and precocity in his progeny. She has produced a high class horse in Mirandola, who's highest rating was 103.

We believe that the 22,000 Euros that we paid for him provides excellent value, as we expected him to fetch a lot more and were prepared to pay higher to secure him. We have placed him with Keith Dalgleish who has done so well with our 2 year old Clem Fandango in her first season and would expect this colt to be racing at the highest echelons in 2017, so an exciting prospect. He's the model of a horse who will have a 3 yr old career to look forward to as well. well. He’s got a miler’s pedigree and his half-brother won as a 2yo over the extended mile at Windsor in September last year, so he'll debut over 7 furlongs.

Latest Trainer Update: (Sept 9th) Keith reports that he is fine this morning after his debut yesterday. A pleasing debut. He was green and unbalanced down the back and very green around the bend, but he stuck on well up the straight and it looked like he was going to run a big race about 2.5 furlongs out. He nearly got put through the rail in the final furlong so he will have learnt a lot about the hustle and bustle of racing. Jimmy was very kind on him and didn’t use his stick to ask him for an effort so he should come on plenty for the experience. He’ll go to Ayr next and we’ll put him in both the 7f and the mile novice races as he showed that 7f could be within his compass yesterday and then choose in the week which one we run in.
