Sweet Celebration is a stunning daughter of Excelebration out of a First Defence (USA) mare. Her sire was originally also trained by Marco Botti before moving into the care of Aidan O'Brien. He did most of his winning between 7f-1m but was unfortunate enough to be born in the generation that included Frankel. Excelebration finished second to Frankel on three occasions but still managed to win three Group 1 races here and in France. He has been at stud since 2014 and with his first crop produced St James' Palace winner Barney Roy. The black type performers haven't finished there however and in his second crop, he produced Hey Jonsey and Speak In Colour (also trained by Marco). He was a very classy horse who would have undoubtedly won more races had he have been born at a different time but this appears to have made him a very good value sire.
Sweet Celebration was the second foal of Snow Dust's, the first of which has made the track on several occasions, which is always a positive. Snow Dust herself was an unraced mare, half-sister to multiple group race winner Starformer. Starformer won multiple Group races between 1m2f and 1m4f, in the US including the Group 2 New York Stakes at Belmont Park. Her pedigree is stacked with black type performers and she is a very exciting prospect.
She was named due to her sweet temperament!
