Purchased at the Tattersalls Ireland September Yearling Sale, he is by Acclamation.
He has a pedigree oozing with black type performers and the quality you would expect being by Acclamation, who has sired so many very good horses over the years: Expert Eye's winning the Breeders Cup Mile for example.

He is a gorgeous, free moving individual, who not only has the conformation and looks but also the pedigree, he is half brother to no fewer than three rated north of 90 but even more excitingly, his pedigree is very active; 2 out of the mares last 3 progenies have been rated in the 90’s.
Racing Update: Tough as old boots when allowed to bowl along. Stays 10f but is perfectly versatile between 8 and 10f. He’s a fabulously fun horse who runs regularly and wears his heart on his sleeve in his races. Now that we’re allowed back racing, and it does appear that liberty will be here for good, he’s probably the perfect northern horse to own if you’re operating on a very sensible budget.
