Bucephalus

DOB Colour Sex Sire Dam
12/05/2017 Bay Gelding Soldier Hollow Batya

Owner: Quantum Leap Racing VII

This gelding was purchased by Jeremy Brummit at the Baden Baden Yearling sale in Germany for 38,000 euros. He is out of the winning dam Batya, and by the four-time Group 1 winning German sire Soldier Hollow who is the only German horse to have won stakes races at 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 years old. Bucephalus has made a promising start as a 2-year-old finishing 4th at York on his first time out in tough conditions. He’s run twice in 2020, finishing 5th on both occasions at Haydock. His first run of the season proved to be a good race as the form has been boosted since with two subsequent winners (Berkshire Savvy & Glenties), and a Royal Ascot 2nd (Kipps). On his next start, Bucephalus encountered trouble in running and clipped heels with another horse at an early stage of the race and never got into a good rhythm, so that race can be forgotten. He’s been gelded since and we hope to see him on the track as soon as possible.
