Purchased for 90,000 Euro at a top French yearling sale, Lexington Force was a super-impressive winner on debut in Feb 2020 (see Video 1).
Only freak bad luck with injuries has put the breakes on his career to date, but he's raring to go now ahead of his 4-y-o turf season from an opening mark of 85.
He's a superb individual who we think has the scope and ability to progress into quality Saturday handicaps in 2021.
Too big to run at 2-y-o, Richard Hannon sent him for a pipe-opener on debut as a 3-y-o expecting him to need the run. But Lexington Force romped to victory displaying a touch of obvious class.
For his 2nd start he want to Newcastle but on course, quite out of the blue, refused to load and lashed out damaging a pelvic ligament.
With that fixed he came back in autumn 2020 and quietly finished progress to a handicap mark - running well, only just denied on 3rd start, arriving a stride too late. Rated RPR 90 for that run, he begins on an official BHA mark of 85.
Returning home from his last run, Lexington Force banged a tendon in his box leading to some tendonitis which curtailed his Autumn 2020 campaign. So having gain his handicap mark, he was simply put away for spring / summer 2021.
Everything is in place now, he's in good nick at home and is due to reappear in March 2021 on the all weather ahead of a turf campaign where there is lots of potential up in trip from his current mark.
His dam, has already produced an RPR-96 foal by a very modest stallion in Tin Horse. Dabirsim represents a significant stallion upgrade - so we have every reason to believe there's plenty more to come and we can't wait to see what he can do.
