Initially purchased, as a yearling, at the Goffs Premier Yearling Sale for £95,000, he is by ACCLAMATION - and is three-parts brother to George Bowen and bred by Kevin Blake. Read more about his sire here: http://www.rathbarrystud.com/cms/stallions/acclamation/acclamation/.
A Group 2 winner of the Prix Robert Papin as a 2yo, he suffered quite a serious injury to a fetlock at 3yo. A pelvis tweak kept him off early 2022 but he’s been training really well at home at Richard Hannon’s. Unfortunately, he’s not been showing up, on the track, what he’s been working like at home, so we thought it was time for a change. He’s just lost his way a little.
He’ll head for White Turf races at St Moritz in February under the excellent tutelage of Milton Harris, where each race (he’ll run in 2 or 3 races, across 3 weekends 5/2/23,12/2/23,19/2/23) is worth $15,000 Swiss Dollars (circa £10,000 to the winner). It’s a fabulous experience for owners too, to visit the frozen lake that they race on at St Moritz. An owners’ experience, second to none, especially in the VIP area. Read all about it, here: https://www.whiteturf.ch/en/racing-days/
On his return to Great Britain, at the end of February, he’ll head north, to join David O’Meara to be trained for a summer’s turf campaign. He looks seriously well handicapped now off an official mark of 85, and any kind of return to his 2yo OR of 104 could see him rattle up a sequence of wins, earning multitudes of prize money, so typical of David O’Meara’s career.
Racing update (30th January): He and stable mates Mordred and Stepney Causeway have now left for the 'The White Turf' meeting in St Moritz. We enjoyed 2 wins from his stablemate Mordred last year at this glamourous meeting, where his owners had a fantastic time. His race entries/declarations will show on this page.
