Extra Elusive’s ability was well and truly unlocked once he teamed up with our retained rider Hollie Doyle.
Already an useful performer who had been Group 3-placed, homebred Extra Elusive took his form to a new level for Doyle, who allowed him to bounce out and use his long stride to good effect. The partnership enjoyed a landmark moment when making all in the Group 3 Rose Of Lancaster Stakes at Haydock Park and later followed up in the Group 3 Winter Hill Stakes at Windsor.
Extra Elusive remains in training with Roger Charlton with an eye on further major prizes.
By Mastercraftsman, Extra Elusive is a half-brother to our homebred Group 2 Gimcrack Stakes winner Ajaya and out of Nessina, a daughter of Hennessy purchased for the stud by Tony Nerses.
