2016 grey gelding by Exceed And Excel (Aus) ex Satwa Ruby (Fr) (Verglas (Ire))
Purchased for €62,000 at the Goffs Orby Yearling Sale 2017
This racy looking three-year-old gelding is in training with a master at training speedsters Charlie Hills. He was purchased at the Goffs Yearling sale and did well in his pre-training with Hetta Stevens. We are thrilled to be involved with this colt, whose father, Exceed And Excel is such an outstanding sire and his dam has 100% record of winners so far from her offspring. He represents great value and should be an early, speedy sort, but has enough about him to say he will be just as good, if not better at three. He was KVT’s first 2yo runner of the season, when 5th of 12 on debut at Nottingham in June and improved on this effort when 2nd and has an initial rating of 73.
Luke Lillingston commented “Project – try to find another flying machine for the brilliant trainer of sprinters Charlie Hills. By the sire of his great speedster Cotai Glory, out of a super tough mare, with the appropriate physique…and a grey! Mission accomplished I think!” He is registered for the Plus 10 Bonus.
Charlie is a classic and multiple Group 1 winning trainer, who has had the likes of Just The Judge and Muharrar under his care. Part of the Hills family dynasty he is a master trainer of very fast horses.
