Milestone looming for Exceed And Excel

Pirate Jenny becomes his 199th Stakes winner in Ireland

Exceed And Excel’s brilliant stallion career is reaching a notable milestone after Pirate Jenny became his 199th individual Stakes winner on Wednesday 20 July. Running in the Listed Yeomanstown Stud Irish Stakes at Naas, she jumped straight to the lead in the six-furlong contest, and despite being hard pressed in the final furlong, she recorded her first Stakes success by three quarters of a length.

Bred by C O P Hanbury, Pirate Jenny is out of the winning Oasis Dream mare Chica Whopa and a half-sister to G2-winning juvenile Barraquero.

Exceed And Excel is looking to become the sixth stallion to sire 200 Stakes winners after Galileo, Danehill, Sadler’s Wells, Dubawi and More Than Ready. He will be covering this season at a fee of $132,000 Inc GST.
