It’s often said that a horse had ability, but never reached his potential and in the case of Outreach, that is indisputable fact.
His only outing produced a brave second in the Group III ATC Canonbury Stakes over 1100 metres at Rosehill when he led all the way as favourite, before being run down late by subsequent Golden Slipper winner and Champion 2YO Vancouver.
Injured in running, Outreach was subsequently retired without another start.
“Outreach was without doubt Golden Slipper class,” said his co-trainer Peter Snowden.
“A colt with genuine Group I winning speed. I was confident he would have given the 2015 Slipper a shake had he got there.”
