Multiple Gr.1 Sire
Acclamation’s reputation as a sire of sires grew in 2021, with Mehmas celebrating his second Group 1 winner in Going Global, whilst Harbour Watch’s progeny recorded a pair of Group 1 wins during the year. Dark Angel, meanwhile, has another top-class prospect in Dual Group 1 winner Angel Bleu.
Acclamation’s progeny continue to impress on the track and his latest crop of two-year-olds have been no exception. Perhaps the most exciting of which is the Christophe Ferland-trained Accakaba. The Wertheimer homebred won her first four starts; two of them at Stakes level, including the Group 2 Prix du Calvados. She went on to finish a close fourth to Angel Bleu in the Group 1 Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere, and she being the only filly in the field is a testament to the high regard in which connections hold her.
Louliana, impressing when winning on her first starts at 2 and 3 years old culminated her three year old season with a fine win in the Listed Prix Marchand d’Or having previously finished a close second in the Group 3 Prix Texanita to Suesa the subsequent winner of the Group 2 Goodwood Qatar Stakes.
My Sister Nat is another fine Stakes campaigner and landed back-to-back runnings of the Grade 3 Waya Stakes at Belmont Park in October. She followed up with a close second in the Group 1 Breeders’ Cup filly and mare Turf which was her third Group 1 placing.
The 2021 flat season saw Oh This Is Us resume his admirable consistency on the racetrack, no stranger to big race wins he added another two Stakes wins to his impressive record in 2021. Richard Hannon’s charge is now a 16-time winner, with over €850,000 earned in prize money. He is a firm favourite with his trainer who believes 'He is an absolute star and has a heart like a lion'.
