By Arrowfield's Champion 2yo, Champion 3yo miler and 4 x Group 1 winning sprinter-miler, I was really impressed with the progeny of Olympic Glory and this colt was the standout. With only 2 dams on the page, he hails from the family of THE HEAVYWEIGHT who won 3 x as a 2 year old, he was a dual Stakes winner & 9 x Stakes placegetter.
