Vocatus was secured away from the sales in a private deal. This exciting flat horse holds plenty of strong form in Ireland on all different types of ground. He’s also very well bred, the likes of Gold Splash and Goldikova are in the family.
On his final start in Ireland, Vocatus won by six lengths at Galway. The win came over seven furlongs and was visually impressive. Vocatus showed a smart turn of foot, putting the race to bed quickly.
Vocatus has the speed for six furlongs but it proven over a mile and one furlong. This gives us nice options, especially through the autumn months as Vocatus goes well on soft ground.
Vocatus rating in Ireland was 79. Long term, we'll aim for big field Saturday handicaps with good prize money on offer.
Vocatus will be trained by Mick Appleby.
