“There were a clutch of high-class 3YO colts in Europe at a variety of distances in the latest season but none was better than Sottsass” Timeform, Racehorses of 2019

“Sottsass is such a beautiful horse and an incredible racehorse… When this colt was born, we were so impressed by him that we immediately went back to Sottsass with another mare” Anna Sundstrom, joint breeder with Charlotte Hutchinson of the €525,000 colt at Arqana
"We’ve made a point of looking at every single Sottsass because he was such a sensational racehorse. We love the sire line… Every single one of them has looked like an athlete, light on their feet and have great movement. If the yearlings can be half as good as their father we’re in very good shape!” David Redvers, purchaser of a €200,000 colt at Arqana
