World Champion miler, five-time G1 hero, and the best by Kingman. Unbeaten in two starts as a juvenile and still undefeated when beating Pinatubo in the G1 St James’s Palace Stakes. Like his sire, won the G1 Prix Jacques Le Marois. Rated the world’s best racehorse after easy wins in the G1 Lockinge and G1 Queen Anne. The first horse to win back-to-back runnings of the G1 Jacques Le Marois for 25 years.
