Class of 2020: Andrew Balding

There is another promising squad of juveniles based at the historic Park House Stables in Kingsclere; Andrew Balding takes ATR through his pick of them.

ANDREW BALDING had an unforgettable 2019 season when his 128 winners netted £3,847,669 and continued the rise and rise of the Kingsclere trainer.

The older horses were clearly the main providers but 21 winners from that total were provided by two-year-olds and there was Group 1 success for Kameko in the Futurity Trophy at Newcastle in November, Group 2 success forShadn in the Criterium de Maisons-Laffitte at Maisons-Laffitte in October and a notable prize money haul from King’s Lynn in the Weatherbys Racing Bank £300,000 2-y-o Stakes at Doncaster in September.

With Her Majesty The Queen, King Power Racing and Jeff Smith amongst some highly notable owners, Andrew clearly has the power base to carry on as he is doing and he kindly took the lid off a selection of juveniles he hopes can do well when racing resumes to Tony Elves of At The Races.

Please note: Where a horse exists in the ATR database we have linked to its form and tracker profile below, we will update others when they become available.

DANCE AT NIGHT
Bay Colt: Dark AngelStrictly Dancing
"He is a lovely colt of Jeff Smith’s with a lot of quality. We have had a lot of luck with the dam and he is a half-brother to Dancing Star and Foxtrot Lady who did so well for us. He goes well and is a lovely colt for mid-summer onwards. He will start over six or seven furlongs."

FIVETHOUSANDTOONE
Bay Colt: FrankelPromised Money
"King Power Racing have some nice two-year-olds with me and he is one of them. He has just had a little bit of a setback but he looks very nice."

FLYIN’ HIGH
Bay Colt: SiyouniZee Zee Top
"He is a big scopey type by Siyouni who has some quality and has a decent pedigree. He looks very nice and is another to keep an eye on."

IMPERIAL FORCE 
Bay Colt: CamachoCafetiere
"He is a Camacho we bought at the Sales for 72,000gns out of Tattersalls Book 2. He is strong and precocious and showing a bit of speed and he is not far off a run."

KING VEGA
Chestnut Colt; Lope de VegaMoi Meme 
"He looks another nice athletic type with a bit of quality. He won’t be out for awhile but he looks nice and I would have thought he would be 7f/8f this year. He will be out later on."

SPIRIT MIXER
Chestnut Colt; FrankelArabian Queen
"He is another of Jeff Smith’s and he has a lovely pedigree being by Frankel out of Arabian Queen and he looks the part. I would have thought he would start over seven furlongs."

STAR CALIBER
Bay Colt: Golden HornLombatina 
"He is another owned by King Power Racing and he is more a middle distance horse for next year but is just a lovely athletic type."

TACTICAL
Bay Colt: ToronadoMake Fast
"He would be one of our early ones and he is a Toronado colt owned by Her Majesty The Queen. I trained the dam who loved soft ground and who was listed place a couple of times and a handy filly up to seven furlongs. This fellow looks quite precocious and is showing plenty of speed. I would hope he would be ready to run quite soon – he goes nicely."
