Nicklaus (GB)

Nicklaus, a three-year-old gelding by Exceed and Excel, was originally purchased at Baden-Baden Sale by Peter Doyle for €180,000. Nicklaus improved throughout his first year with William Haggas, so much so that when he came on the market as a three-year-old, William was anxious to keep him at Somerville Lodge and for Highclere to reap the benefit.

The trainer was vindicated by impressive victories at Newbury and Salisbury before a commendable third place in a very hot handicap at Glorious Goodwood where he went down by a bare two lengths. Next time up at York everything that could go wrong, did. However, he has shown plenty of ability and we look forward to seeing on the race-track soon!
