COLOUR VISION LANDS ASCOT GOLD CUP
Colour Vision became the 20th Group 1 winner for the late Juddmonte stallion Rainbow Quest after winning a thrilling renewal of the Ascot Gold Cup on the third day of Royal Ascot (21st June).
The four-year-old grey – trained by Saeed Bin Suroor on behalf of Godolphin – hails from the final crop of his sire, who died at the age of 26 in 2007. A hugely successful stallion and outstanding broodmare sire, Rainbow Quest’s long list of Gr.1 winners includes eight Classic winners – among them the Quest For Fame, Spectrum and Millenary - whilst his many Gr.1 producing daughters include the dams of Footstepsinthesand, Rakti, North Light, Kris Kin and Powerscourt.
Rainbow Quest also appears in Juddmonte champion Frankel's pedigree as the sire of Frankel’s grandam, Rainbow Lake.
