Perfect Power

£10,000 B 2019 15.3HH (1.60M)
Ardad – Sagely (Frozen Power)
Oct 1, Special Live Foal. Standing at Dalham Hall Stud, Newmarket

Winner of the G1 Morny, G1 Middle Park and the G2 Norfolk Stakes at two. Last-to-first dash to win the G1 Commonwealth Cup – becoming the only horse ever to win three 6f G1s at two and three so early in his career. First Kodiac, then Ardad: two stallions who are quite brilliant – the best, in fact – at siring precocious speed that excels at Royal Ascot. No horse from the sire line has won as many sprinting G1s as Perfect Power. 100 mares in a classy first book.
