World Champion sprinter and July Cup hero Harry Angel sired his first winner in impressive fashion on Tuesday, 10 May when his son Vicious Harry made a successful racecourse debut at Deauville.
Settled in mid-division under jockey Tony Piccone, Vicious Harry travelled well throughout the five-furlong contest and quickened up nicely close to home to win by a length and a half, with three lengths further back to third.
Vicious Harry was bred in France by SARL Medva and is out of the juvenile winner Umneeyatee by Encosta de Lago, herself a half-sister to G1 winner Amanee and from the family of Miesque.
Harry Angel was himself a very smart two-year-old, breaking his maiden in the G2 Gimcrack. He won the G1 July Cup at three, the same year he set a new course record in the G1 Sprint Cup at Haydock when winning by four lengths.
Harry Angel returns to Kelvinside in New South Wales at an unchanged fee of $16,500 (inc GST).
