King Of Change and Elegiac impress at Nottingham

Farhh colts strengthen Classic claim and add first Black Type success in Listed Barry Hills Further Flight Stakes

Farhh enjoyed a successful day at Nottingham with three-year-old colt King Of Change taking a novice event and first-crop son Elegiac landing a debut Black Type victory.

Taking an early lead and asserting in the final furlong, King Of Change went on to take the 1m ½f contest decisively for owner Ali Abdulla Saeed. Marked out to follow by his trainer Richard Hannon in the Racing Post, King Of Change holds Classic entries this season in both the 2,000 Guineas and Derby and may potentially target the Esher Cup at Sandown over a mile next time out.

The consistent four-year-old colt Elegiac made all in the Listed Barry Hills Further Flight Stakes staying on well under jockey Franny Norton for Mark Johnston. A winner at both two and three-years-old, this was a first Black Type win for the Aston House Stud bred colt who hails from the family of dual Group 3 winner Crystal Gazing.

With an excellent 13% stakes winners to runners from his first crop, Farhh currently leads all other third season stallions with his best performers including G2 winner Nocturnal Fox, dual G3 victor Wells Farhh Go and Derby second Dee Ex Bee.

Farhh stands at Dalham Hall Stud at a fee of £10,000, Oct 1, SLF.
