FIRST WINNER FOR PINATUBO

17 May 2024 09:26


 

Darley’s champion juvenile and promising first-season sire Pinatubo looks to have a smart prospect in the shape of his first winner, Andesite. 

The colt, who took the six-furlong novice contest at York on Thursday, is bred to be decent and precocious.

Pinatubo, a son of Shamardal and the Listed-winning Dalakhani mare Lava Flow, was a brilliant and unbeaten juvenile, with a nine-length win in the Curragh’s National Stakes supplemented by victories in the Dewhurst, Vintage Stakes and Chesham Stakes. 

In being allotted an official rating of 128 for his exploits in that 2019 campaign, he was rated the best European juvenile since Celtic Swing in 1994, and higher than Frankel 

The Godolphin homebred went on to win a third Group 1, the Prix Jean Prat, as a three-year-old and also placed in the 2,000 Guineas, St James’s Palace Stakes and Prix du Moulin.
