Exceptional three-time Gr.1 winner by Exceed And Excel
Timeform rated 133 at 3 years and 133 at 4 years – only Frankel was higher!
"Excelebration was close to being the best miler seen in Europe in recent years, with the obvious exception of Frankel." Timeform Racehorses of 2012
"a career that, but for Frankel, would have been considered one of the modern era's greatest." Racing Post, Nov 2012
"He oozes class and has loads of speed - that's his greatest weapon" Aidan O'Brien
Proven Gr.1 sire from his first crop!
"We bought Excelebration privately as a horse in training and I think he's a bit under-rated. He has a few nice horses at the moment and we booked some clients' mares into him." Tom Goff
