    The Gatekeeper Ascot -  Royal Hunt Cup (Class 2) Flat
    (Heritage Handicap)
    Early Closing
    Jockey TBC

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 at Newmarket, in a £50k Class 2, a super close 2nd in the Class 2 Goodwood Mile at the Qatar 'Glorious Goodwood' Festival (picking up £36,000 for his owners,) he remains very much a big race and festival handicapper. He’s perfectly adept on the AW too, so year round, and often, weekend and festival action. His race entries/declarations, will show on this page.
