This powerful colt by Mehmas who has done very well since he was purchased at the Goffs UK Premier Yearling Sale at Doncaster where he impressed with his great strength and likely precocity. 

By the very smart sprint dual Group 2-winning two-year-old Mehmas, those victories coming in the July Stakes and Vintage Stakes at Glorious Goodwood, he was also 2nd only to Churchill in the Gr.1 Vincent O’Brien National Stakes.  Described by his trainer Richard Hannon as incredibly tough, we hope that this youngster will be in a similar mould and are delighted that Richard has already taken such a keen interest in this colt.  This is the first crop of yearlings from Mehmas, who is by the quite exceptional sire of sires Acclamation.  Click here to view sire information about Mehmas.         

His dam Mistress Makfi is by the 2,000 Guineas winner Makfi and is a half-sister to two Stakes-placed horses – Rare Ransom (3rd in Gr.2 Debutante Stakes) and Ransomed Bride (2nd in Carlingford Stakes).  There are Group winners aplenty in this pedigree, including the Champion 2yo European filly Pas De Response.   

Richard told everyone at the Highclere Yearling Parade that he expects him to run early in the season and possibly two or three times even before Royal Ascot!! 

As a graduate of the Premier Yearling Sale, he qualifies for the £300,000 Goffs UK Premier Yearling Stakes which is to be run at York in August 2020.
