Foal diary


Bay colt by Exceed And Excel out of Melpomene



I was born on 26th August 2015. My dad is the very famous Exceed And Excel who has sired lots of horses that have won big races. I hope I am as good as my sister who is called Calliope, she won a big race called the Magic Night Stakes this year.


This year has gone very quickly. I now live in a paddock with other horses and Mum is back living with the other mares on the farm. I have been branded with the new Godolphin brand like all the other foals on the farm this year.

I have had the farrier come to visit me and look after my feet. I am very good at travelling on the horse float and love having time out in paddocks by the river have fun with my friends.



I’m coming to the end of my breaking-in program and it has been a real adventure. I have learned how my four gaits work, but I haven’t really had a chance to use my fourth - galloping!! I have learned how to jump out of barriers, swim and so much more. I’m sad to leave my handlers at Kelvinside but it’s time for me to travel to Crown Lodge in Australia’s largest city, Sydney. I hope one day I can be just as good as my dad Exceed and Excel. I have been named Pindus.
