Former Australian champion 1st-season sire Exceed And Excel (Danehill-Patrona, by Lomond) added a UK juvenile black-type success (& 36th individual stakes-winner world-wide) when his colt Fulbright (Exceed And Excel-Lindfield Belle, by Fairy King) scored a 1.25-lengths victory in the £25,000 (A$38,000) Listed Woodcote Stakes (6 furlongs) for 2YOs at Epsom. Fulbright (ridden by Silvestre de Sousa for trainer Mark Johnston) defeated front-running Irish-bred gelding Evervescent (Elnadim-Purepleasureseeker, by Grand Lodge) & Irish-bred filly On the Dark Side (Kheleyf-Red Fuschia, by Polish Precedent).
