As one of 26 Group 1 winners for his sire Medaglia d’Oro, Vancouver’s exceptional juvenile form saw him awarded Champion 2YO Colt honours and a Timeform Rating clear of any of his peers.
Vancouver was an undefeated two-year-old, all wins at stakes level, which culminated in the sire-making Group 1 Golden Slipper.
Along his two-year-old journey, Vancouver defeated Group 1 winners; English, Exosphere and Single Gaze, showing the utter class he will always possess.
An outstanding type with a great page and more importantly putting the score on the board as a proven stallion, Vancouver is out of multiple stakes placed Danehill mare Skates, herself a daughter of Champion 3YO Skating. One of three stakes winner for his dam, Vancouver is a half-brother to Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes winner Juste Momente.
Now into his second season at Woodside Park Stud with his oldest runners just five, Vancouver is already the sire of winners in 11 countries, including stakes performers in five different countries.
A producer of 10 stakes winners, five at Group 2 level, Vancouver is knocking on the door to win a maiden Group 1, headlined by Overpass, his $4 million-earner, star sprinter.
We encourage all Victorian breeders to come to the farm and just look at the specimen that is Vancouver, just like his sire Medaglia d’Oro, he takes the room’s eyes with his black coat and charismatic presence.
