Purchased from the Tattersalls Ireland Yearling Sale, he is by EXCELEBRATION and is the half-brother to Listed winner and Gr.2-placed TIME SHANAKILL

By the sire of three time Group 1 winner BARNEY ROY, out of a mare who has already produced the Listed and 10-time winner TIME SHANAKILL (Lord Shanakill) and Listed 2nd Va Tutto Bene (Hallowed Crown) hopefully he can have a career reminiscent of our Mark Johnston trained, Group 1 placed, Group 3 and Listed winner Marie’s Diamond.

See his walk video in the gallery.

Racing Update: After a fine win in May at Newmarket, in a £50k Class 2, he remains very much a Saturday handicapper for us, throughout the year. He’s perfectly adept on the AW too and one of those big pot Finals’ days, in years’ time, come Good Friday, could easily be within his winning compass. Charlie did mention him being a type for the Buckingham Palace at Royal Ascot & the Golden Mile at Glorious Goodwood. All year round, and often, weekend and festival action. TIMEFORM RATED:105. His race entries/declarations, will show on this page.
