The fastest son of sire of sires Montjeu

An unbeaten G1-winning Champion 2YO with the speed to win a Guineas and the class and acceleration to win the Epsom Derby by 5 lengths, a run throughout which he stayed unbeaten.

Only the third horse since Nijinsky to land the Guineas/Derby double following Nashwan and Sea The Stars.

“He was the perfect racehorse, a beautiful horse with a terrific action. Speed, class and a super-intelligent horse to go with it – he had it all.” Aidan O’Brien
