Strait of Hormuz (Sir Percy X Sliabh Luachra) is the first foal of her dam, herself being a half sister to the sire Mehmas. With Mehmas winning multiple group races as a 2YO much was expected and Strait of Hormuz did not disappoint. Coming in a good second when beaten just a length on September 4th he went off the short priced favourite at Chester and did not disappoint. Racing mostly in 4th he moved into the 2nd spot at the furlong mark and then went on to lead and draw away towards the finish. This was a valuable EBF Novice Stakes and more wins can be expected when he moves up in distance in the next month or as a 3YO.
Sliabh Luachra has an Acclamation yearling, a Starspangledbanner foal and is in foal to Expert Eye.
