Excelebration Gets Away From Frankel

Trainer Marco Botti runs Excelebration, twice placed behind the brilliant Frankel this season, in Saturday's Group 2 CGA Hungerford Stakes at Newbury over seven furlongs.

 

The $125,000 stakes race is the feature contest of the week in British racing and will be simulcast live at Saratoga. Post time 10:40 am (4th race at Newbury).

 

Much has been made of the dominance of three-year-olds this season and Excelebration looks poised to take advantage of a handy weight allowance in the Hungerford.

 

The Exceed And Excel colt has made quite a splash in six careers starts, with a runaway victory in the German 2000 Guineas the unquestionable highlight.

 

British Champion trainer Richard Hannon runs top three-year-old Dubawi Gold in the Hungerford. Godolphin has entered five-year-old Delegator, unplaced in the Breeders' Cup Mile last November. Clive Cox has both Beacon Lodge and Balthazaar's Gift, while South African maestro Mike De Kock runs Musir, winner of last year's UAE Derby in Dubai.

 

On the same Newbury card at 10:05 am, the Group 3 CGA Geoffrey Freer Stakes, run over one mile and five furlongs, has attracted a field of 11.

 

These include a trio of three-year-olds pointing for the Doncaster St Leger in September, final leg of the British Triple Crown. Tom Dascombe trains Royal Ascot winner Brown Panther for British soccer star Michael Owen; John Gosden runs Buthelezi and British Champion trainer Richard Hannon sends out Census.
