Ten Sovereigns Retired To Coolmore

Ten Sovereigns | Coolmore

Ten Sovereigns (Ire) (No Nay Never-Seeking Solace {GB}, by Exceed and Excel {Aus}), winner of the G1 Middle Park S. at two and the G1 July Cup this year at three, has been retired from racing and will stand alongside his sire at Coolmore next year.

Ten Sovereigns was unbeaten in three runs at two, winning the G3 Round Tower S. a week after his Curragh debut and casting himself among the G1 2000 Guineas favourites with his Middle Park win. Trainer Aidan O'Brien switched the focus to sprinting after Ten Sovereigns failed to see out the mile of the Guineas, and the horse's team was rewarded with a 2 3/4-length score over Advertise (GB) (Showcasing {GB}) in the July Cup.

Ten Sovereigns is the seventh successive horse in his direct male line to have won a Group 1 or Grade I race as a juvenile.

Ten Sovereigns has great power and great presence,” said Coolmore's David O'Loughlin. “He's the second fastest July Cup winner and the third-fastest Middle Park winner of all time and is by a seriously good sire in No Nay Never. I have no doubt that breeders are going to love him.”
