Heading to Australia this spring is Coolmore's young Pivotal sire Excellent Art (GB), who posted his fourth stakes-winner overnight when Sparkling Portrait took out the Listed Glasgow Stakes at Hamilton Park.
A progressive three year-old trained by Richard Fahey, Sparkling Portrait finished hard from back in the field to forge clear and win the 11 furlong staying test by three-quarters of a length over the Dylan Thomas gelding Goldoni.
He has the overall record of four wins from eight starts and winning rider Paul Hanagan believes there is better to come.
"Sparkling Portrait had a real scare [when almost brought down] at Ascot and I don't know how he stood up," Hanagan told PA Sport.
"I did not want to use the stick on him, and the plan was to come down the outside with a long, straight run so he did not have to come in between horses and get a bump. I wanted him to get his confidence back up. He doesn't know it yet, but he is a very good horse, and connections should be very excited about him. He will get further and this season is a bonus. He will be 100% better next year."
Sparkling Portrait is one of three winenrs, but the first stakes-winner for the Sadler's Wells mare Time Crystal, who comes from the family of Group I winner Crystal Music.
The oldest Australian progeny by Excellent Art (pictured) are just two year-olds and include the now infamous filly Blackman (she of the name change), who scored an impressive debut win for the David Hayes stable earlier this month.
Excellent Art stands at a fee of $8,800.
