Foundation (IRE)

This colt by first season sire Zoffany was acquired for €190,000 at Goffs! He has the rare presence of a horse that simply oozes class and he holds himself beautifully. He is out of a Stakes placed mare who is a half sister to two Listed winners from the family of Scorpion. Zoffany himself was a superb miler and got the closest of any horse to the mighty Frankel when beaten only three quarters of length in The St James’s Palace Stakes (Gr 1).

Foundation proved himself to one of Europe's leading two-year-olds during the 2015 season after claiming the Group 2 Royal Lodge Stakes and being unluckily beaten in the Group 1 Racing Post Trophy. Unfortunately, his early favouritism for the 2016 Derby didn't eventuate, although since his transfer to Australia in October 2016 we are hopeful that David Hayes' team at Lindsay Park Racing can return Foundation to the top-class ability that we all know he has leading into the Australian Autumn.
