SIRE OF A G3 WINNER IN HIS 1ST CROP!
Cotai Glory is a commercial breeder's dream.
By Champion sire of 2yos and sprinters Exceed And Excel, he was a tough and consistent performer on the track. A winner of the Gr.3 Molecomb Stakes as a 2yo, he trained on to win the Gr.3 World Trophy at three.
He was beaten by just a neck in the Gr.1 King Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot and was placed in multiple Group races worldwide, including the Gr.1 Nunthorpe Stakes at York on two occasions and the Gr.2 Nearctic Stakes at Woodbine.
He danced every dance throughout his decorated career and defeated 11 Gr.1 winners including: Battaash, Mecca's Angel, Profitable, Sole Power, Goldream, Alpha Delphini, Brando and Kingsgate Native.
His first yearlings sold for up to 180,000gns while his first 2yos averaged 100,000gns at the Tattersalls Craven Breeze-Up Sale.
He is already the sire 11 first-crop winners including G3 winner ATOMIC FORCE, impressive Newmarket scorers FORCA BRASIL and DIG TWO, also 2nd in the Windsor Castle Stakes at Royal Ascot.
"Between us Alastair and I purchased six Cotai Glory yearlings and they will be trained by Tom Dascombe, Richard Hannon and Roger Varian. I have such faith that I've even backed him to be leading first season sire." - Ed Sackville, The TDN 14/03/21

''He is by far the fastest two-year-old I have ever trained. He has been an exceptionally sound horse and has never taken a lame step. He performed at the highest level at 2, 3 and 4 and was a pleasure to train''.
