Smart debut winner for Excelebration
The Ecurie Peregrine bred Liwanu (3c Excelebration ex Lausanne, by Lawman) looks another good prospect for promising young sire Excelebration as he ran out a comfortable winner at Compiegne for Andre Fabre and Mrs Andre Fabre. Sent off the 6-5 favourite, Liwanu was held up towards the rear but comfortably took command entering the last stages, passing the post under a hand ride an authoritative 1¾ length winner. Excelebration had 22 individual first crop 2YO winners in 2016 which bodes well for the future as he himself improved by over 30lbs from 2 to 3 years. A 3-time Gr.1 winning miler, Excelebration is serious value this year at a fee of €10,000.
