Olympic Glory’s first Australian yearlings sell in 2018.
A Champion 2YO, a Champion 3YO Miler and a four-time Group 1-winning sprinter-miler – this is Olympic Glory who joined the Arrowfield roster in 2015 after a superlative £1.4 million European career.
Olympic Glory won eight of his 15 starts over 1200-1600 metres at two, three & four. He was a Group 1 winner in each of those three seasons and was unbeaten at 1400 metres.
Olympic Glory's career opened with four wins from five 2YO starts, featuring a pair of Group 2 victories and culminating in the 1400-metre Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere G1. These performances earned him the titles of Co-Champion British Two Year Old and Champion Two Year Old in France.
Olympic Glory opened his 3YO season on a winning note in the Group 3 Newbury Greenham Stakes and peaked with an emphatic 3..25 length victory in the Group 1 Ascot Queen Elizabeth II S. With an international rating of 125 he was ranked the World’s Co-Champion 3YO Turf Miler.
Olympic Glory began and ended his 4YO campaign in the same fashion, winning the 1600-metre Newbury Lockinge S. G1 by more than two lengths, and bowing out in October 2014 with his fourth Group 1 victory in the Prix de la Foret over 1400 metres at Longchamp.
Timeform awarded Olympic Glory a final rating of 130, ranking him among the world's top dozen performers in 2014 and just above his champion stablemate Treve & Arrowfield's own superstar Dundeel.
Olympic Glory is by the ground-breaking dual hemisphere sprinter Choisir, now a leading sire of 83 stakeswinners (11 Group One winners).
Olympic Glory’s dam is the 2013 Irish Broodmare of the Year Acidanthera by Alzao (also broodmare sire of Champion Japanese racehorse and sire Deep Impact), from the family of Classic winners Teenoso, Sir Percy, Give Thanks, Harayir and Rule of Law.
