  • Gr.1 Breeders’ Cup Mile winner by Acclamation, sire of leading sire Dark Angel and exciting Mehmas.
  • The only son of Acclamation to win a Gr.1 over a mile – with a higher Timeform rating (124) than Dark Angel (113), Mehmas (115) and Acclamation himself (118).
  • Covered 50 Group/Stakes winners in his first two books of mares – more than Acclamation (11), Dark Angel (12) and Mehmas (13) combined.
  • Won the Gr.3 Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot by the biggest winning margin this century
  • Winner of the Gr.2 Vintage Stakes as a 2YO in a performance described by Timeform as “arguably the most striking performance by a 2YO in a Pattern race all year”
  • A fourth generation Juddmonte homebred from the family of Champion 2YO Filly in Europe and dual Classic winner, Special Duty
  • “He’s naturally precocious, very well-balanced, well developed and mature. You would have to say that he’s the best two-year-old that I have had for quite a while. He’s been pretty natural from the beginning. Before we ran him we knew that he was pretty smart, as he has always shown speed and been very athletic” Sir Michael Stoute, 2017
