His sire, Pivotal, sadly passed away in November of 2021. Read his former trainer, Sir Mark Prescott's tribute to him here: and the Racing Post Bloodstock story:

Walk and Profile Video: 

Pivotal needs no introduction as a racehorse (to those old enough to remember his Group 1 winning exploits) and certainly not as an all-conquering stallion and broodmare sire. Retired from stud duties now, our colt hails from the penultimate crop of the famous sire. His progeny headliners include ADDEYYB, AFRICAN STORY, FARHH and SARISKA

The Johnston yard at Kingsley Park, is renowned, traditionally, for producing horses that progress with age and distance; horses who are better at 3yo than 2yo and who excel at distances of 12f and beyond. That’s precisely what we believe we have purchased in this fabulously well-bred colt. He’s a tall individual who has plenty of size, and he’s quite long in stature which also suggests he will improve and mature into his frame as he gets older.

He’s a close relation to a top-class handicap hurdler and he ought to retain significant residual value at the end of his Flat career. He ticks plenty of boxes for us and beyond his time with MPR.
