Horse Description:

By red-hot sire Snitzel, whose yearlings averaged $310,625 at Magic Millions in January, this colt is the fourth foal out of the speedy mare Peace Academy, who was a city winner over 1,100 metres.

Peace Academy shares her page with Listed-winning sprinter Whisper Bay (by Royal Academy) and is a half-sister to Hurtle Myrtle (Dane Shadow), a winner at the highest level over a mile, who also had the pace to land a pair of Group 2s over 1,200 metres and 1,400 metres for trainer Matthew Smith.
Peace Academy's first runner Helsingor (sold for $185,000 at Easter Sale in 2014) ran with promise at two for Chris Waller, running second on his debut over 1,000 metres before finishing fourth in the Group 3 Blue Diamond Preview behind subsequent Group 2 winner Fontiton, who ran well when fifth behind Pride Of Dubai in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes.
The late Royal Academy has firmly established himself as a broodmare sire of the highest order, his daughters responsible for a host of top-flight winners around the globe, including Fasntet Rock (Danehill) and outstanding European runner Finsceal Beo (Mr Greeley).
