Canford Cliffs X Phosphorescence
2 year old Colt
Sire: Canford Cliffs Dam: Phosphorescence
If any stable can get this super-looking colt by CANFORD CLIFFS, it is Ellerton Zahra Racing.
Trainers Mathew Ellerton and Simon Zahra have already had terrific success with this yearling’s family, winning two Group 3 races with his grand-dam NEDIYM’S GLOW while the dam’s half-brother DOUBLE JEOPARDY is an exciting prospect for the team.
This lovely mover is a son of CANFORD CLIFFS, a five-time Group 1 winner in England and Ireland, defeating some of the world’s best horses of his era, including GOLDIKOVA, CAPE BLANCO and MAKFI, but he was also brilliant enough at two to score by seven lengths on debut before bolting in by six lengths in the Group 2 Coventry Stakes during the Royal Ascot carnival.
Canford Cliffs has started his stud career in solid fashion with the Group 2 winner PAINTED CLIFFS and Group 3 winners AL JAZI, MOST BEAUTIFUL and PRINCESS ASTA while his Australian son CLIFF HANGER was a solid second at Group 2 level days before this colt was purchased.
This super-looking young thoroughbred is out of the LONHRO Mare Phosphorescence, who also hails from the same family as Group performers RED COLUSSUS, KINGLIKE and ROYAL HAUNT. Lonhro’s daughters have produced classy racehorses such as the Sandown Guineas winner MORTON’S FORK while his grandson VERANILLO Is a serious Golden Slipper contender while ASPECT is also a two-year-old stakes winner this season.
Winners just leap off this colt’s pedigree page and an inspection will show he is a superb athlete that will carve out his own impressive record when he hits the track.
