Coolmore buys dam
of Excelebration

COOLMORE has bought Sun Shower, the dam of Excelebration, from Hazara Stud, India. The deal was brokered by Hugo Merry, who purchased the mare for €10,000 on the stud's behalf in 2008 from the Goffs November Mare Sale.

The deal follows Coolmore's purchase of Excelebration in August. The son of Exceed And Excel has since won the Group 1 Prix du Moulin. No decision has yet been made as to whether or not the horse remains in training for 2012.

The mare will ship to Ireland shortly, and she is currently in foal to Hazara Stud Farm's stallino Rebuttal (Mr Greeley). She has a Strategic Prince two-year-old in training in India and a yearling colt by Dancing Forever (Rahy).
