Amazing Red

Bay Gelding
DOB: 25 Apr 2013
Teofilo x Artisia (Peintre Celebre)
Owner: The Hon R J Arculli

A half-brother to the legendary Red Cadeaux, Amazing Red is by Teofilo, the European Champion Two-Year-Old of 2006 who was unbeaten over seven furlongs and has produced the likes of Gr.1 Irish Derby winner Trading Leather and Gr.1 Prix Jean Prat winner Havana Gold.

He is out of the placed Peintre Celebre mare Artisia, who has foaled two further winners alongside Red Cadeaux. She is a half-sister to eight individual winners including Military Attack, who won the Gr.1 Queen Elizabeth II Cup at Sha Tin in 2013, and the Gr.3 winner Almaty.

The colt’s third dam is the legendary Al Bahathri, the Irish Champion Three-Year-Old Filly and Miler in 1985 after whom the Polytrack gallop on the Bury Side of Newmarket is named.

Amazing Red won a maiden in 2016 and a Newmarket handicap in 2017 over a mile and a half. He returned in 2018 with two promising runs before scoring with authority in a two mile handicap at Kempton. That was merely a warm-up, however, for his best performance yet when striding to an impressive victory in a £50,000 mile and three-quarter handicap on the July course. 

 

Unfortunately he didn't show his best in the Northumberland Plate last time out, but we have concluded that the surface there does not play to his strengths. We are now beginning to formulate a plan for the rest of the season and there remains every reason to be excited about the future for Amazing Red.
