Exceed And Excel Adds UK-Black Type
Also in the UK, dual Gr1 winning Darley stallion & leading 2YO sire Exceed And Excel (Danehill-Patrona, by Lomond) added a black-type success when UK-bred 2YO colt Nideeb (Exceed And Excel-Mantesera, by In The Wings) scored by a nose in the £30,000 (A$60,270) Listed Winkfield Stakes (7 furlongs on turf) for 2YOs at Ascot. Nideeb (ridden by Ryan Moore for Clive Brittain) defeated fellow colts Party Doctor (Dr Fong-Wedding Party, by Groom Dancer) & Navajo Chief (King's Best-Navajo Rainbow, by Rainbow Quest). Nideeb was a 20,000 guineas (A$42,000) yearling at the 2008 UK Tattersalls October Sale; overall he now has 2 wins from 3 starts for £21,201 (A$43,000) earnings.
