Global Destination

DOB: 06 Mar 2016
Slade Power x Silk Trail (Dubai Destination)
Owner: Dr Johnny Hon

This colt was a 260,000gns purchase and is another of the Slade Power's here at La Grange. His father was all about speed and won the Gr.1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes and the Gr.1 July Cup. He has already been represented by a couple of winners from a relatively small pool of runners so far from his first crop.

Global Destination is out of the Dubai Destination mare Silk Trail, a Darley-bred half-sister to the Gr.1 Middle Park Stakes winner and sire Lujain, who won over seven furlongs. Their dam Satin Flower won the Gr.3 Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot and was Gr.1-placed, whilst the extended family features the Gr.1 Santa Anita Handicap winner Martial Law

He made his debut in August in a Yarmouth maiden over six-furlongs, showing plenty of promise to finish fifth, beaten only four-and-a-quarter lengths, and attracting some positive comments from race readers. The first three home are now rated 90, 96 and 86 resepectively, so it was a warm enough contest, whilst Global Destination has continued to develop physically in the months since the race. Fingers crossed he can continue to go the right way, in which case he should be a fine thre-year-old prospect.
