GUTAIFAN: Highest rated 2-year-old son of DARK ANGEL, officially rated 117, 4lbs higher than his leading sire DARK ANGEL who also retired at two. GUTAIFAN trained by Richard Hannon won four races as a 2-year old including the Flying Childers Grp.2 in a record-breaking time, Prix Robert Papin Grp 2, and he was 2nd in the Grp 1, Prix Morny to SHALAA (rated 120). GUTAIFAN’s first crop of 2-year-olds are set to hit the racecourse in 2019, as foals they were all the rage and topped the Irish sale and as yearlings they are the talking horse everyone is after.
AJA, by EXCELLENT ART was unraced and our yearling is her first foal. EXCELENT ART was a high class 2-year-old over 6f and later a top-class miler who won the St. James’s Palace Stakes, he’s had a good with his Progeny. AJA is a very well related filly and has some top class horses within her pedigree.
GUTAIFAN x AJA colt is a stunning individual, Richard trained GUTAIFAN himself and saw lots of him in this colt, he’s an effortless mover with a lovely stride. Richard would anticipate him being ready to debut in the early to mid-part of the 2019 flat season.
The colt will be trained by Richard Hannon at Herridge Racing Stables, Wiltshire.
