“Vancouver’s an exceptionally good-looking individual who should sire both racehorses and sales horses. I think US breeders will be very impressed when they see him. He’s by a very good sire in Medaglia d’Oro and is proving extremely fertile. Our sire sensation Uncle Mo was also an unbeaten Champion juvenile at two, as was Shanghai Bobby whose first yearlings were very well received and who Vancouver very much reminds me of. It all bodes very well for the future!” Ashford Stud manager Dermot Ryan
