SOVEREIGN GRANT A NEW WINNER FOR KINGMAN
Two-year-old Sovereign Grant, registered an easy win at Kempton yesterday (10th October) under a hands and heels ride to become KINGMAN's 17th first crop winner.
Taken from the Thoroughbred Daily News, 11th October
Owned and bred by the Queen, Sovereign Grant was well away to race second in the wake of the leader through halfway. Looming large in the straight, the crowd's 15-8 choice quickened smartly to seize control approaching the final eighth and surged clear to score by an impressive 3 and a half lengths from Current Option, becoming the 17th winner for his freshman sire. He becomes the third winner from as many foals out of Listed Swettenham Stud Fillies' Trial victress Momentary, herself the leading performer produced by a winning half-sister to dual Gr.3 Winter Hill Stakes victress Fabricate.
