In training


Bay Colt
DOB: 23 Apr 2016
Wootton Bassett x Scarlet Sonnet (Invincible Spirit)
Owner: Mr and Mrs Hui Sai Fun

This colt is out of the Gr.1 winning two-year-old Wootton Bassett, who has gone on to fame as the sire of three-time Gr.1 winner and Champion Three-Year-Old Almanzor.

He is out of the Invincible Spirit mare Scarlet Sonnet, who was a two-year-old winner in France. She is closely related to the Gr.2 Ribblesdale Stakes winner Sahara Slew.

Annexation was unraced at two, but got his career underway with a promising fith placed finish at Salisbury in May. He followed this up with similar efforts at Lingfield (turf) and Windsor, earning a rating of 64 in hte process. 

He was unleashed in handicaps over seven-furlongs at Ayr in July, but a series of bad luck which began the moment the gates opened severely compromised his chance. He eventually ran on to finish a gallant third, and we hope that there is plenty more to come and he will soon be making up for his Ayr misfortune.
