Having cost 950,000 dollars as a yearling, the son of Scat Daddy paid a small slice of that back when securing an eyecatching length-and-a-quarter victory in the British Stallion Studs EBF Novice Stakes.
Vaughan said: “We’ve been a bit nervous and had a few sleepless nights with this fellow as we think he is pretty good.
“Mine only work on the bridle at home. He has worked with nice horses and he does it incredibly easily. He will come on for that and Oisin (Murphy) has given him a beautiful ride.
“We will get him back and won’t rush him. He is a very talented horse and he will tell us when he is ready.
“He is in the Dewhurst. That’s a while off, but we will see. I’d like to go baby steps as I do it with every horse I have.
“He is a fast horse and he will get better with better company he runs in. Oisin said he took a fair while to pull him up there and he galloped out well.
“If he is good now, he is going to be good next year. He has handled it all well today. I’m really excited about this horse. It is the most excited about a horse I’ve ever been in my life.
“We’ve had some nice horses, but I think this fellow is in a different league.”
