This smashing big balanced was bred to be really high class. From the family of Camelot. His mother who won the Lingfield Oaks trial is a sister to the grand dam of Camelot in a page full of black type winners. He always looked the part with an exceptional long striding walk he took the eye from the moment he stepped out of his stable on the sales ground at Tattersalls. He was a turned out to be a real bargain buy, our hours of work on the sales ground paying off as we walked into a near empty ring late at night.
His homework was always very promising and he had a lovely introduction to the races in June at Sandown, with Jimmy Fortune absolutely delighted with the feel he got from him in the race. Given space to mature and strengthen at the end of July he showed the public what he was really capable of when stretching out to a five length victory at York in impressive fashion under Luke Morris. Sold for ten times his purchase price to continue his career in Hong Kong, he was given one more start for his new owner in the Group 3 Acomb Stakes where he finished third, the winner given a canny ride from the front.
He was a very special horse for us as he got us noticed at a higher level and proved to people we could not only buy but also train a top class two year old. His performances allowed us to go to the sales with several order for existing and new clients. Lets hope we can be as lucky again.
