Raven's Applause

Bay Gelding
DOB: 29 Mar 2020
Acclamation x Cravin Raven (Raven's Pass)

Rarely does the opportunity arise to buy into a pedigree with live Classic aspirations but that is the case with this scopey and attractive son of Acclamation.

He is out of a half-sister to the dam of Point Lonsdale, second favourite for next year’s Derby having won his first four starts at juvenile before running second to Champion European Two-Year-Old Native Trail in the Group 1 National Stakes at the Curragh.

Point Lonsdale himself is out of Listed winner Sweepstake, making him a brother to Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud winner Broome, who recently finished runner-up in the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Turf.

This colt, who was bought out of Book 2 for 50,000 guineas, is a half-brother to two winners, including US stakes scorer Conformist. He boasts all of the key attributes imparted by his sire, namely substance and athleticism, and looks to have the precocity to make the track relatively early next year, with the best to come further down the line.
