Projection (IRE)

A four-year-old bay gelding by Acclamation, Projection, was a dual winner at two years of age, which was no surprise given his sire’s record with juveniles and his dam Spotlight, who was a Listed winning two-year-old. Spotlight is also the half sister to Tyranny, who is the dam of Group 1 winner and sire Zoffany, so there is plenty of class in his pedigree as well. He has always looked a precocious and speedy individual and his physical development over the last two years has been very significant. He ran in a number of the top sprint handicaps last season, putting up a huge effort to finish third in The Wokingham.  This horse continued to improve and demonstrated that he was capable of making the leap into group company when finishing second in the Bengough (Group 3), beating top class sprinter Magical Memory. 

Projection has been kept in very good company this season. He ran a blinder to be fifth in the Diamond Jubilee at Royal Ascot, only beaten two and a quater lengths! He was susbequently second beaten a head in the Hackwood at Newbury. His most recent run came on the July course at Newmarket where he ran a creditable third, two lengths a drift of the exceptional Limato. He is ultra consistent and will no doubt get his head in front in a big one soon.
