In the UK overnight, dual Gr1-winning former Australian champion 1st-season sire Exceed And Excel (Danehill-Patrona, by Lomond) added a group success when Irish-bred 5YO gelding Masamah (Exceed And Excel-Bethesda, by Distant Relative) notched his 2nd successive stakes win this month with a 1.75-lengths victory in the £85,000 (A$128,000) Gr3 King George Stakes (5 furlongs) at Goodwood. Front-running Masamah (ridden by Jamie Spencer for trainer Kevin Ryan) defeated 5YO entire Amour Propre (Paris House-Miss Prim, by Case Law) & 6YO gelding Group Therapy (Choisir-Licence To Thrill, by Wolfhound). Masamah was a 60,000 guineas (A$93,000) yearling at the 2007 Doncaster Bloodstock August Sale & later a 30,000 guineas (A$47,000) 3YO at the 2009 Tattersalls Horses-In-Training Sale.
