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 struggled up at Newcastle on his return, when dropping back to a mile, but he was too keen early when seeing daylight and failed to get home. He improved plenty for that effortwhen running at Wolverhampton in May, going down by just a neck over an extended mile. That once again confirmed that the ability is there and surely his turn will arrive soon.
