This lovely-moving individual is by multiple Group 1 winner Dream Ahead. Dream Ahead is the sire of dozens of Stakes performers including Group 1 winner Al Wukair.  This colt was the sale topper at Bordeaux with his now trainer George Baker describing him as “a stunning colt, I loved him from the moment our agent in France Sebastian Le Forban took me to see him."  George’s catalogue notes simply read “Love him. Buy him!!” He was well bought for €80,000. Looking at him it is easy to imagine that he would have made a much higher price at a sale here. 

Culture made a late season debut at Sandown, in a run that we expected him to come on a lot for. On his other appearance at 2 he placed third at Amiens and looked very much one to look forward to this season. He has strengthened up really well through the winter months and shaped with real promise when finishing fifth at Chepstow on his first run of the season. After a couple of disappointing runs, where there were valid excuses, he then left his previous form well behind.  

In first-time cheek-pieces he romped to a comfortable three-length win at Windsor, drawing away from the field in the last furlong. He then repeated that performance with another game victory at the same track, showing that he is well and truly on the upgrade.

Unfortunately Culture found conditions at Epsom were not his liking in the Apprentices’ Derby at Epsom next time where he and a number of others struggled in very heavy ground. He will hopefully have one more run this season.
