In training

Sir Gnet

Bay Gelding
DOB: 09 Apr 2014
Galileo x Ecoutila (Rahy)
Owner: Mr Quentin Zheng

Sir Gnet is by the great Galileo, the 2001 Derby winner whose deeds at stud scarcely need mentioning. A short list of his best progeny includes FrankelNew Approach, Australia, Nathaniel, Rip Van Winkle etc.

His dam is the unraced Rahy mare Ecoutila, who has produced four winners so far and three have racing post ratings in excess of 100. Her son Surfrider won a Gr.3 over seven-furlongs whilst her daughter Enticement won two Listed contests for Sir Michael Stoute. Loyalty, her son by Medicean, is a 17-time winner and has been Listed-placed. 

Sir Gnet was second three times in 2017 and knocked on the door on many occasions. He was also second, beaten just a neck, in a competitive Wolverhampton handicap in May 2018, but injury sidelined him for much of the rest of the year. He has shown he has the ability to win races on numerous occasions, so hopefully his turn won't be long in coming. Now rated a rather appealing looking 64, he will be racing during the early stages of 2019 on the all-weather, so hopefully he will get his head in front before long.
