This imposing son of Dawn Approach, looks a fantastic opportunity for owners to join MPR and the excellent, Newmarket based, Marco Botti.

Dawn Approach was a superb winner of the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket, having been Champion 2yo, the year before. He went on to compete in the Derby, but failed to settle, before bouncing back to form to become the Champion 3yo miler of his generation.

He’s made a fabulous start to his time at stud and in the shape of his sturdy, yet athletic son, here, out of a mare who has already produced a 107 rated horse, we look to have a thoroughly progressive individual, who should make up into a fabulous 2yo for the second half of this season and an outstanding individual as a 3yo, as the distances of ground that he will contest races over, become commensurate with those of his genes.

We envisage his optimum distance, to be 1m2f in time and given his fabulous presence and physique, he could easily make up into a high-class, dual-purpose prospect, beyond his 3yo season; either that, or become a very valuable asset at the end of his 3yo season, 2021. His pedigree goes back to Green Desert, Galileo and Park Appeal no less, so we have a really blue-blooded individual, on our hands.

He’s cantering every day on Warren Hill and making super, early springtime, progress, under Marco’s fabulous tutelage. Marco reports him to possess a bombproof temperament and we can’t wait to see him debut, possibly over 6f in June, but more likely 7f, in either July or August.  His fantastic stride and presence, will stand him in good stead, from this sort of timescale onwards.

We added this colt to our string when we were last at Marco’s Prestige Place Stables in early February. We weren’t envisaging buying another 2yo this Spring with Marco, but such was the impression he made on our team, on the day, we couldn’t resist. Let’s hope he’s lucky for us?

Please see three videos taken of him this week in the gallery.
