Thrilling win for Off Trail

Son of Farhh lands G3 in Japan

Off Trail, a three-year-old son of Farhh, captured his biggest career triumph on Sunday, 30 June when victorious in the G3 Radio Nikkei Sho in Japan. In the rear early, he swept round the outside turning into the straight, and showing a devastating change of pace, caught the leaders near the finish to win by a head.

Clocking a winning time of 1:45.3, he equalled the course record that was set 26 years earlier.

A Godolphin homebred, Off Trail is a half-brother to two European Stakes winners in Rosental and Rosa Imperial. His dam Rose Trail (Kingmambo) is a granddaughter of the G1 Golden Slipper heroine Bint Marscay.

Farhh has now sired four Group winners in 2024, with Off Trail his second in the space of three days after Tiffany’s G3 Hoppings Stakes win on Friday evening. They are made up by G2 Prix du Muguet hero Tribalist and three-year-old colt Atlast.
