“This is a colt with an array of weapons, having a top notch cruising speed, the turn of foot to separate himself, the stamina to operate over longer distances and, notably, the kind of pack-dominating tenacity that will ensure he makes the most of his physical gifts.” James Willoughby, Thoroughbred Racing Commentary
