TRAINER: Keith Dalgleish
We’ve had plenty of success over the years with progeny of the great Starspangledbanner, most notably, The Rosstafarian, who was placed at black type level for us and also ran in the Group 2 Craven Stakes and Irish 2000 Guineas in 2021. He was recently sold, at the end of his GB career, to Hong Kong, for a very hefty, arguably, life changing sum for his lucky owners.
We fell in love with our latest Starspangledbanner acquisition, at GoffsUk, as soon as we saw him. He’s a stunning chestnut, with plenty of strength, but a degree of athleticism and elegance too. He’s blessed with poise and great movement (one of the best movers of the week, we thought).
He’s a full brother to a very talented horse, and hails from a fabulous farm, who produce Group winners’ year in, year out. He’s a good size who won’t just be a sharp and early whizzbanger. He possesses plenty of room for development, through to his 3yo career, even.
We can see him shaping up into a very talented 2yo indeed, plying much of his trade around the top Scottish and northern England tracks, with the occasional foray south, chasing bigger prizes, and winning more than his fair share, no doubt.

Training update (9th September): He is receiving his education at Richie McGrath's pre training yard, where we send many of our yearlings each year. Richie says: "He is progressing well and is currently lunging with one and two reins, stopping and starting on command and has started long reining in the lunge ring and arena. The next stage will see him long reining in open spaces along with getting used to someone starting to lean over him." See these video updates of him in the gallery.
