By Champion Sire of 2yos ROYAL APPLAUSE from the immediate family of
1000 Guineas winner LAHAN.


With a Timeform rating of 122, he won from 5 furlongs to 7 furlongs including the Molecomb Stakes as a 2 year old and The Lennox Stakes as a 3 year old, making him both fast and precocious.  Add this to his stunning good looks and excellent confirmation he could make the perfect choice for your mare.

Defeating 7 individual Group 1 winners in his racing career, he beat Rip Van Winkle, Bushranger, Lord Shanakill, Cityscape, JJ The Jet Plane, Regal Parade and Art Connoisseur.  Not only did he beat another 6 group winners and further Listed winners but was an unlucky 3rd (beaten two noses, by Intense Focus and Lord Shanakill) in the fastest Group 1 Dewhurst in 50 years.

Finjaan is the best son of Royal Applause (an outstanding sire of 2-y-o’s and sire of Acclamation) to be standing at any Stud within the UK.

Racing results:

Won Gr.3 Molecomb Stakes, Goodwood, 5f, at 2 years.

Won Gr.2 Lennox Stakes, Goodwood, 7f, at 3 years.

3rd Gr.1 Dewhurst Stakes, Newmarket, 7f, at 2 years (beaten by a nose and a nose) in the fastest Dewhurst in 50 Years

Quote from Marcus Tregoning – Trainer of Finjaan:
FINJAAN was a very precocious and top class 2-y-o, he was extremely sound with a great constitution and able to compete  in the top 2-y-o races of his generation winning the Molecomb at Glorious Goodwood and only beaten by two noses in the Dewhurst Stakes.  He trained on well as a 3-y-o winning the Lennox Stakes Group 2 again at Glorious Goodwood.  He was an exceptional looking horse with a great temperament and I will look forward to seeing his stock at the sales in the future.
