Exceptionally talented colt North Pacific has run his last race after sustaining an injury. Such a natural talent, as a two-year-old North Pacific was able to run third to Farnan on debut in the Group 2 Silver Slipper running sensational closing sectionals and marking himself as a potential star of the future.
Coming back as a three-year-old, North Pacific put in one of the highest rated performances of any colt of the season by smashing a strong field in the Group 3 Up and Coming Stakes winning by over five lengths before putting in another huge performance in the Group 1 Golden Rose getting beaten by the shortest of margins by multiple Group 1 winner Ole Kirk.
“Rated by outstanding judge John Hawkes as one of the best-looking yearlings he’s ever seen at a sale, North Pacific had a huge engine to match his incredible good looks. While his racing career was prematurely cut short, he was a horse with legitimate Group 1 form and talent,” commented Newgate’s Henry Field.
“It was very encouraging to see leading form analyst Daniel O’Sullivan rank him at the top of the three-year-old colts for this season based on his two peak performances. I am personally a big believer that you should rate a stallion on their best performances and at his best, North Pacific was quite brilliant,” said Field.
