Luxor

One of the top lots at Doncaster Premier Sale, Luxor grabbed the attention of several people before John and Jake were able to secure this colt for £190,000 guineas. By Champion sire, Oasis Dream, and out of a precocious two-year-old winner in Eminently, Luxor was one of our more precocious types.

Placed with William Haggas, he made his debut at Windsor and found the whole experience to be rather overwhelming, nonetheless he coped well. Having got his first run out of the way, we were looking forward to seeing him duplicate the quality of work he has produced on the Newmarket Heath. His next run was the improvement expected and he won a six-furlong Maiden, then missed the break and raced a little too keenly when a close third in a Novice at Ripon.  His final start at 2 was by far his most accomplished run, travelling powerfully throughout and bursting clear impressively in the final furlong to win a smart Nursery at Newbury from a rating of 85.  

Luxor’s three runs in the early part of his 3yo season did not get him off to the best of starts and he was found to have sustained an injury which will keep off the track until later on this year.  There is every chance that he will come back a stronger horse at 4 and this very speedy gelding could well prove to be up to winning some quality sprints handicaps.
