Purchased at the Goffs September horses-in-training sale, this lightly raced young gelding is by EXCEED AND EXCEL.
We have a fabulous record of purchasing high class horses in training from large ownership outfits, namely our Group 1 winning G Force for just 25,000gns, our Group 1 placed Penitent for 40,000gns, our Old Newton Cup winner Tawdeea for 11,000gns and our top-class handicapper Waarif for 23,000gns. You could make a cogent case for suggesting our record is second to none, in this regard.
So, we think we have unearthed this thoroughly unexposed son of Exceed And Excel, from the horses in training ranks for Roger Fell to train.
He’s a full brother to the high-class FERNDALE and a half-brother to top class Saayerr and Ornate, so the genes are there.
He looks an out and out 5f and 6f sprinter, the sort of horse that reminds us of another HIT purchase Burnt Sugar, who won two valuable Heritage Handicaps for Roger Fell and ourselves in 2018!
Here he is on the round gallop (he is the 3rd horse.)
THE HAT-TRICK HERO! November 2020:
Training Update (December 14th): He’s been a real revelation, since taking to Southwell’s fibresand - with his last six runs giving form figures of 1, 1, 1, 3, 4, 2! Possibly a tad better at 5f but does stay 6f, and best on a sand based surface. He is not short of races to contest at the track through the next few weeks; in fact there are five which are under consideration! His race entries/declarations will show on this page.
