2015 bay filly by Exceed And Excel (AUS) ex Our Little Secret (Ire) (Rossini (USA))
Exrating has pleased Ed Walker with what she has shown to date at home and could make her debut at Newbury in late September all being well.
Exrating is by the outstanding sire Exceed And Excel, an Australian-bred son of Danehill who has had great success at stud in both hemispheres including the likes of young stallions Excelebration and Helmet. She is out of the Listed winner Our Little Secret which makes her a half-sister to the Group 2-winning sprinter Pearl Secret as well as to Secret Romance who scored for Hot To Trot on her debut a few years ago. She was bought-in at 100,000 guineas as a yearling last autumn and is a very exciting member of the team.

This is our first horse with Ed Walker at the spectacular Kingsdown Stables in Lambourn, recently refurbished by its owner Bjorn Nielson. Ed is one of the most up and coming trainers in the country and has recently made the move from Newmarket to Lambourn with his wife Camilla where they will have over 100 horses in their care.
