Trained by Noel Meade, Luke Short won a competitive nursery at Naas last year and was impressive on this occasion, kicking clear for a near three-length success under Danny Sheehan.

Making Luke Short’s win all the more notable is the fact he is a son of our stallion Sayif, winner of the Group 2 Diomed Stakes at Ascot.

Luke Short was bred by Saleh Al Homaizi and Imad Al Sagar out of Acclamare, an Acclamation half-sister to Listed winner Bold Thady Quill and the Listed-placed Willytheconqueror. She descends directly from champion Sookera and therefore hails from the further family of blue hen Hasili.
