Throwback Race Of The Day For Wednesday - 12/10/22

This weekend is all about Baaeed having his final run and looking to keep his unbeaten run going and coming back to the meeting he won last year at, we thought it would be appropriate to have a look back at his win in the 2021 QEII.

The highly rated four year old only started his racecourse career at the start of June last year and has since gone on to win all seven of his events in fine style, winning more impressively each time.

Having landed a decent Maiden at Leicester on his debut, Haggas sent him into a Novices' event next time out at Newmarket and went on to bolt up by nearly eight lengths.

Firmly putting himself as a horse to follow, he improved once more to land the Listed Sir Henry Cecil Stakes on the July Course, seeing off smart stars Maximal and One Ruler with ease.

Next time out at Glorious Goodwood he took on his toughest field yet in the Group Three Bonhams Thoroughbred Stakes, but once again he took it in his stride and saw off El Drama by close to seven lengths.

All set for a step up to Group One company he went on to make it a perfect 5/5, landing the Prix du Moulin on his first trip to France.

Baaeed rounded off the season at Ascot on Champions Day when taking on the best miler in Europe Palace Pier and in a fight to the finish, the younger horse prevailed.

Back this season, he made his seasonal debut in the Group One Lockinge and blitzed a good field by close to four lengths and then went to Royal Ascot and took the Queen Anne Stakes in similar style.

Sent to Glorious Goodwood for the Sussex Stakes he won comfortably again and then in his step up to 1m2f last time out in the Juddmonte International he showed just how special he is to make it 10/10.

Taking on the British Champion Stakes this weekend before going to stud, the colt is one of the greatest talents we have seen in the sport since his sire Frankel.
