Exceed And Excel continues his brilliant Run

Mare too good in William Reid Stakes and boosts her sire’s outstanding record

September Run continued the remarkable success of her sire Exceed And Excel when she won the G1 William Reid Stakes at Moonee Valley in Melbourne on Friday, 25 March.

Exceed And Excel was a dual G1 winner who has sired more than 500 juvenile winners to date and nearly 100 Group winners in a brilliant career at stud.

September Run, out of the Stakes-winning mare Pittsburgh Flyer, burst back to best form by easily beating Halvorsen and General Beau in the $1 million sprint over 1,200m at The Valley.

Jockey Craig Williams brought the four-year-old with a well-timed run to record her sixth win, with three placings, from 19 starts for premier trainer Chris Waller.

It was her fifth Stakes race success and her second at G1 level following her Coolmore Stud Stakes win in 2020.

September Run was sold at the 2019 Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale by Blue Gum Farm for $380,000 to Hermitage Thoroughbreds.

September Run, who was bred by Alpara Lodge, is the first foal of the Street Cry mare Pittsburgh Flyer, herself a G3 winner in Melbourne. She has a weanling (colt) by Exceed And Excel, who has 17 lots in the catalogue for the 2022 Australian Easter Yearling Sale at Riverside Stables, Warwick Farm on 5-6 April.

Exceed And Excel will stand the forthcoming season at Kelvinside, NSW.
