The €100 Nomination!

WIN a 6,000 nomination for 100!



Far Above won on debut in a seven-furlong maiden at Newmarket in the spring of his three-year-old campaign. However, it was at sprint distances where he shone. Dropped to six furlongs for his third start at Windsor, he won by five lengths. His final start at three years was in Deauville where he won a listed race, again over six furlongs. His sole start this year, winning the Gr.3 Palace House Stakes on his first attempt at five furlongs, suggested he was getting faster with age. “He has an electric pace like I’ve never seen. He’s the fastest horse I’ve ever trained”, said Tate.

Far Above's sire Farhh is also responsible for Group 1 winner King Of Change, Derby runner-up Dee Ex Bee and Group 2 Royal Ascot winner Move Swiftly. He is out of a Shamardal mare and his dam Dorraar is out of a half-sister to Group 1 winner Nahrain who in turn is the dam of the high-class Benbatl.

Far Above has already covered 100 mares this season and stands for an advertised price of €6,000.
