Regal Reality | Racing Post


   Having struck with Mirage Dancer (GB) (Frankel {GB}) in the previous race on the card, Sir Michael Stoute extended his record haul to six when sending out Regal Reality (GB) (Intello {Ger}) to success in Friday's G3 Bonhams Thoroughbred S. at Goodwood. Typical of one benefitting from the master trainer's patient approach, Cheveley Park Stud's homebred bay went into hibernation after picking off a Sept. 20 seven-furlong maiden at the renowned Great Yarmouth schooling ground in his sole juvenile outing and shook away the rust when opening this campaign with a sixth to subsequent G1 St James's Palace S. hero Without Parole (GB) (Frankel {GB}) upped to this trip tackling Sandown's May 24 Listed Heron S. in his only other appearance last time. Regal Reality was anchored several clicks off the pace racing fifth of the six contenders through halfway here. Nudged along to close in the straight, the 10-1 chance was three lengths in arrears entering the final eighth, but found top gear under a Franke Dettori swagger and swooped late to usurp the duelling Ostilio (GB) (New Approach {Ire}) and Chief Ironside (GB) (Lawman {Fr}) by 1 3/4 lengths and a short head, respectively, for a career high.

   Regal Reality, who is a half-brother to an unraced 2-year-old gelding by Exceed and Excel (Aus) and a colt foal by Free Eagle (Ire), is the lone performer representing G3 Prestige S. and G3 Oak Tree S. victress Regal Realm (GB) (Medicean {GB}), herself a granddaughter and the leading descendant of G1 Cheveley Park S. heroine Regal Rose (GB) (Danehill).
