Raven’s Pass’s star three-year-old Tower Of London made a perfect start to 2018 when running out victorious in the one-mile G3 Arlington Cup. Winning by half-a-length at Hanshin, he was adding to his juvenile triumph in the G2 Keio Hai Nisai Stakes and third in the G1 Asahi Hai Futurity Stakes on his previous start in December.

He has now won four of his six career starts with prize money already over €900,000.

Raven’s Pass enjoyed a superb year on the track in 2017 siring 11 Black Type winners including multiple Group winner and G1 Metropolitan Handicap second Big Duke, plus G2 winner Secret Number and unbeaten three-year-old Stakes winner Tocco d’Amore.
