On High, a seven-year-old daughter of Exceed And Excel, is offered for sale as a breeding prospect. She is a good-looking mare with an excellent temperament, and the deal is boosted by the knowledge that she is in foal to Scat Daddy's exciting stallion son El Kabeir.
She was trained by Richard Hannon during her racing days and showed plenty of talent in an eight-race career. She was highly-regarded enough to make her debut in a Newmarket maiden, where she finished a highly creditable sixth to the subsequent Grp-3 Sweet Solera Stakes heroine and Grp-2 May Hill Stakes runner-up Muraaqaba.
On High would go on to finish fifth in another warm Newmarket maiden before claiming second in a seven-furlong Salisbury nursery later that year. However, as a half-sister to the Grp-2 Lancashire Oaks third Natalie Jane, and from a family which traces back within three generations to such stellar names as Kris and Diesis, a breeding career was always on the cards.
Since her attentions were diverted to breeding On High has produced three progeny. Her two-year-old Dark Angel filly Champagne Angel was a promising fourth in a five-furlong Nottingham nursery on the second of three starts this year, and she also has a yearling filly and colt foal by the exciting young sire Gutaifan still to emerge.Clearly these youngsters could add plenty to the page in due course, whilst On High's appeal as a breeding animal is heightened significantly when you consider the improving record of Exceed And Excel as a broodmare sire. This season his mares have produced a bumper crop of quality individuals, headlined by the Derby hero Anthony Van Dyck, the July Cup winner Ten Sovereigns and the Australian Grp-1 winner Alizee.
