Is City Of Troy Really Their Frankel?



The Future Champions Festival held at Newmarket delivered two thrilling days of racing, with City of Troy emerging as the standout star. In Saturday's Dewhurst Stakes, City of Troy's performance stood out as the best by a two-year-old this season.


It's important to note that six of his seven competitors had previously won pattern events, adding depth to the race. However, even before the race commenced, City of Troy was the centre of attention. His presence at Newmarket generated a level of excitement and anticipation reminiscent of the days of the legendary Frankel. City of Troy's performance on the track was undeniably impressive as he surged ahead of his talented rivals, displaying the qualities of a top-class prospect.


Timeform has rated City of Troy at 125p, a testament to the exceptional quality of his victory, which ranks among the best in the Dewhurst Stakes over the past decade. Only Frankel, one of the century's greatest racehorses, has achieved a higher Timeform performance rating in the Dewhurst.


City of Troy's potential seems limitless, and he is already a strong contender for the 2000 Guineas and the Derby next year.


As we move into the next year, City of Troy is poised to be one of the most, if not the most, exciting horse in training. With his superstar potential, he couldn't be in better hands.
