Spycatcher’s sire Vadamos, a son of Monsun, trained by Andre Fabre, was a wonderful racehorse who won 8 races including the Prix du Moulin (Group 1) and over £600,000 in prize money. Spycatcher was our first Breeze Up purchase for 2020, where he did a phenomenal breeze with his fractions getting progressively faster as he went, and he galloped with great professionalism. He is a powerful colt with exceptional physique. Spycatcher is in training with Karl Burke, a trainer we have thought a lot of for quite some time.

Spycatcher's debut was impressive, after nearly falling coming out of the stalls, he made up tremendous ground to finish fourth in a very strong race. The general opinion was that it was a decent race and that, of the front four who had come well clear, Spycatcher was the only one who hadn't had a previous run.  Spycatcher then put in a fantastic performance in the Acomb (Group 3) at York to finish second, considering all other horses in the race had won, it was quite an achievement. It is easy to forget that this was only Spycatcher's second race, so it is so exciting to think what might be in store for his future. His next run in the Flying Scotsman Stakes at Doncaster was disappointing, however. He was too fresh and ready to get on with his job, jumped out very quickly and did not manage to get cover. He raced far too keenly, throwing his head around and once it got to the closing stages, he had nothing left to give so PJ McDonald was easy on him. Unlike Doncaster, Spycatcher behaved impeccably in the preliminaries and was relaxed throughout next time out at Redcar where he finished 2nd to what could potentially be a very smart horse of Sheikh Isa's.

It is a shame Spycatcher never managed to get his head in front this season but he has been rated 99 and is surely a ready-made winner in a maiden next season and a lovely horse to look forward to in the 2021 season!
