Pesto (GB)

This outstanding colt comes from a family well-known to us at Highclere. He is out of multiple Group 3 winner Pickle, producer of our very own multiple Stakes winner Gusto who was also trained at Herridge by Richard Hannon Snr. We could only pinch ourselves when we managed to pick up this colt for 80,000 guineas at Tattersalls Book 2, as he ticks all the boxes as a physical specimen and is by a multiple Classic producing sire in New Approach who continues to produce top class horses year in, year out. 

Pesto was immature and too green to do himself justice on his debut. Next time out he ran a much better race at Sandown when he finished fourth, only beaten two lengths by a very smart horse of John Gosden called Beatboxer. He has since run at Leicester and won very impressively winning by four lengths going away and still showing signs of greenness.
