11th European Winner For Exceed And Excel
In the UK, boom Darley 1st-crop sire Exceed And Excel (Danehill-Patrona, by Lomond) notched his 11th individual European winner when 2YO colt Global City (Exceed And Excel-) led all-the-way to score by 4.5-lengths over 5 furlongs at Yarmouth for Godolphin trainer Saeed bin Suroor. Global City (a grandson of Gr1 Prix de Diane-French Oaks winner Lypharita) was originally a 12,000 guineas (A$26,000) yearling, but subsequently topped this year's Doncaster 2YO Breeze-Up Sale when resold by renowned pin-hooker Con Marnane's Bansha House Stables for 200,000 guineas (A$440,000).
