Brutal (Pivotal X Loreto) having been placed 2nd on his two earlier runs made no mistake when stepped up to a mile at Leopardstown winning by a comfortable two and a half lengths.

Brutal is the first produce of the dual winner Loreto, a daughter of Witch of Fife who has already produced the Group horses Drumfire, Cabaret and Hoichoi.

Brutal was bought as a yearling by David Refvers for Qatar Racing at the Goffs UK Premier Sale. His half sister by Sea the Stars will be sold at the Goffs Orby Sale in September and Loreto has a Teofilo colt foal on the ground.

Brutal will now step up to Group company and we would like to congratulate his trainer Ger Lyons and Qatar Racing on what looks to be a very exciting colt.
