Bought at the Tattersalls Book 1 Sale, he is a very athletic son of French 2,000 Guineas winner and first season sire TERRITORIES, who is in turn a son of the legendary INVINCIBLE SPIRIT. This colt looks fast and we hope he will make a nice two year old and improve into being a better 3 year old. He is eligible for the £25k Book 1 Bonus which means he would earn an additional £25k on top of any prize money for victory in a class 4 maiden or above, and a further £10k if it was a Plus 10 maiden as he is also Plus 10 qualified.
We were very keen to buy a 'value' Book 1 horse given the success of this year of some of the sub £100k purchases and the special terms of the Book 1 Bonus Scheme. If he were to win a Plus 10 Maiden next season he would earn around £40k just for that race which is a massive incentive.

'This colt wasn't on my agents' list but immediately impressed me as I saw him for the first time in the ring. He is a tremendous walker, stood well and I think he was well bought in a sale where people aren’t generally looking for 2 year old types. He is from a family I know well, having trained his half sister, BELLAJEU (by MONTJEU) who was very tough, sound and genuine. The best horse out of the dam was a horse called LAT HAWILL who was by INVINCIBLE SPIRIT, making him a 3 parts brother to this horse. His profile does perhaps differ slightly from the kind of horses I have had for Chelsea Thoroughbreds, however, it is one I like a lot and I believe we have an angle with him.'
