Life of Riley.



Ontoawinner are no strangers to Showcasing progeny after huge success in recent years with group winners Toocoolforschool and Quiet Reflection. We are delighted to offer this stunning colt who goes into training with Karl Burke.

We bought the physical specimen, as she is a real Showcasing athlete, that looks and moves like a real athlete.

The stallion Showcasing only ran 7 times, winning twice and being placed 3 times. He won his maiden as a 2 year old at Yarmouth before going on to York and winning the Gimcrack Stakes in a course record time. He is quoted in the timeform records as being the top rated Gimcrack winner. He finished 3rd in the 2 year old Middle Park Stakes at Newmarket. He also finished 3rd in the Group 2 Duke of York Stakes at York. He ran a further 2 times amassing prize money just shy of £130k before being retired to stud due to injury.

In 2014 Showcasing was the leading first season sire in Europe with an impressive 45% strike rate. His progeny include our own Toocoolforschool, the 7 length Group 2 Mill Reef winner and our Royal Ascot Group 1 winner Quiet Reflection. Showcasing progeny have been hugely popular at the recent Yearling and Breeze up sales.

The dam – Swans Wings by Bahamian Bounty was a winner at 2 and was also twice listed placed. She is the dam of 3 winners from 3 runners.

We were attracted to this colt immediately as he is such a physical specimen and had all the right people in for him in the sales ring. If he runs as good as he looks, we are Ontoawinner.
