Fayez (Zoffany X Gems) became our third 2YO winner coming from the yearlings sold last year, and three runners so far. Slowly away he picked up strongly the challenge approaching the final furlong and won this EBF Novice Stakes at Ripon by two lengths. Congratulations to his trainer David O’Meara and to bloodstock agent Richard Knight who bought the horse for his owner Sheikh Abdullah Almalek Alsabah.

Black type racing will be on his calendar shortly.
