Sire: Acclamation

Colour: Bay

Dam: Ardeola

Sex: Colt

Age: 1

Foaled: May 03, 2018

Country: Ireland

Trainer: David Simcock


This Colt was a bargain recently at the BBAG German Yearling Sales.

A very early type he looks like he will run as a two year old all going well and being from a Manduro mare he has some stoutness to his pedigree as well!


Spelling and plan is to Break Him immediately.

The Plan:

As you will know the stake money in Europe isn’t great but it’s nothing for owners to be offered £2m plus for horses. So whilst there isn’t huge money on the track there certainly is when talking of trading horses.

Therefore our plan is to test him and if he can live up to his pedigree fantastic as we will have a Group horse, but if he isn’t quite up to the high level we all hope for the plan will be to trade him to the USA or Asia for a profit as a backup.

With this in Mind he will go to renowned horse trader but top trainer in David Simcock. David trades many horses each year and has a great network and I think being a colt this gives us a great “get out of jail option”.

Why We Love Him?

Physically: He looks exactly how you want them to look, not too big and heavy which gives you issues later in life. A nice head and intelligent eye. He has good power all round. Very nimble and good on his feet.

Movement: This is a must for us and he moves great. A nice loose loping action he is well balanced and covers a lot of ground.

Acclamation: The sire is a star in Europe with 65% runners to winners, he’s rock solid and his colts are 9% Stakes horses for every winner. Very strong and impressive!

Dam / Mother:  The dam here was more than handy winning 4 times and she was super honest and consistent horse who was extremely tough and versatile, which all of the family seems to be. She is the sister to Almandin and Atempo and I consider Atempo a far superior horse to Almandin which says a lot!

Overall we really like the colt, he is a big chance to run early and then train on as the pedigree and mating suggests, highly rated!
