Initially purchased, as a yearling, at the Goffs Premier Yearling Sale for £95,000, he is by ACCLAMATION - and is three-parts brother to George Bowen and bred by Kevin Blake. Read more about his sire here: http://www.rathbarrystud.com/cms/stallions/acclamation/acclamation/.
A Group 2 winner of the Prix Robert Papin as a 2yo, he suffered quite a serious injury to a fetlock at 3yo. A pelvis tweak kept him off early 2022 but he’s been training really well at home at Richard Hannon’s. Unfortunately, he’s not been showing up, on the track, what he’s been working like at home, so we thought it was time for a change. He’s just lost his way a little.
He’ll head for White Turf races at St Moritz in February under the excellent tutelage of Milton Harris. On his return to Great Britain, at the end of February, he’ll head north, to join David O’Meara to be trained for a summer’s turf campaign. He looks seriously well handicapped now off an official mark of 85, and any kind of return to his 2yo OR of 104 could see him rattle up a sequence of wins, earning multitudes of prize money, so typical of David O’Meara’s career.
Racing update (19th February): He ran with great credit on the snow in St Moritz. Coming 3rd, 2nd and 2nd in his 3 races. He woud have won his final start, but was left waiting in the gates too long and totally missed the break, flying home! His race entries/declarations will show on this page.
