Sire: ACCLAMATION (GB)
Dam: ARIS (IRE)
Dam Sire: DANROAD (AUS)
A nomination is available to the extremely exciting young stallion Aclaim. The Grp-1 winner and National Stud resident will stand the 2020 season at £9,500.
Aclaim was trained throughout his career by Martin Meade and demonstrated a high level of ability from the off.
He was victorious in a six-furlong Kempton maiden on his only appearance at two, and followed up in a Newmarket handicap over the same trip on his seasonal reappearance at three. He graduated to pattern company immediately afterwards, when third in the Grp-3 Lacken Stakes, and continued to progress throughout his second campaign. A terrific end of season hat-trick featured a mile handicap success at Ascot, a seven-furlong Listed race at Newbury and the Grp-2 Challenge Stakes at Newmarket, also over seven-furlongs.
He finished the year as the highest ever rated three-year-old sired by Acclamation. Aclaim's resounding Challenge Stakes victory over the Grp-1 winning filly Lumiere had confirmed his rise to the upper echelons of the seven-furlong division, and he reinforced that view during a stellar second half to his four-year-old season.
Aclaim gained his first Grp-1 placing when a narrow second in the Prix Maurice de Gheest at Deauville, before scoring comfortably in the Grp-2 Park Stakes at Doncaster. He saved his best performance for his final racecourse appearance, winning a thrilling renewal of the Grp-1 Prix de la Foret on Arc day.
Aclaim retired to stud as the winner of seven of his 15 career starts, including four stakes races, and with career earnings just shy of £450,000. His trainer Martin Meade described him as: 'a joy to have in the yard. He's a handsome horse and not only just deeply talented but extremely genuine'.
Complementing a fine racing record is Aclaim's blue blooded pedigree.
He is out of the Listed-placed Danroad mare Aris, who defeated Grp-1 winner Gordon Lord Byron when breaking her maiden. She is in turn a sibling of the Grp-1 Irish 1,000 Guineas heroine Again, from the family of such outstanding individuals as the Arc winner and legendary sire Montjeu, 2,000 Guineas hero Galileo Gold and the Grp-1 winning sprinter Goldream.
Unsurprisingly given his profile, Aclaim has proved immensely popular during his short covering career to date. His first foals were extremely well received at the Foal Sales in 2019, selling for figures including €120,000, €95,000, and £65,000. His progeny are sure to be hot property during the next round of yearling sales and he is a freshman sire to watch in 2021.
