Exceed And Excel x Maria Bella

Colt foal enjoying play time in the sun

This son of Exceed And Excel is making the most of his time in the paddocks!

Pictured at 18 days old, the colt is the first foal out of the Raven's Pass mare Maria Bella, winner of 7f-1m at two and three for Charlie Appleby. Maria Bella is a three-parts sister to both the G1-placed Huntdown and to the dam of the G3 Molecomb Stakes winner Cotai Glory (Exceed And Excel) and Listed-placed Excel's Beauty, both by Raven's Pass's sire Elusive Quality. The trio are all out of the UAE 1,000 Guineas heroine Infinite Spirit.
