Excelebration Colt Conquers Stakes Level Sprint

The Conqueror (4c Excelebration - March Madness, by Noverre) became the latest Stakes winner by Excelebration when taking the Listed Premio Bersaglio at San Siro in impressive fashion.

Racing over six furlongs, the Alduino Botti-trained colt scored by two lengths under Dario Vargiu, beating the experienced Trust You into second. Vargiu was encouraging after the race, commenting, “He is a very fast horse and is learning his job with each race. He could improve further.”

Bred by Razza del Vellino and racing in the colours of Scuderia New Age, The Conqueror is a half-sister to Group 3 winner Candy Store, out of dual black-type winner March Madness.

Excelebration, whose Group 1 winning son Barney Roy contests the Queen Anne Stakes on Tuesday afternoon, commands €8,000 this season.
