STORY

ALLIGATE was bought for €75,000 at the 2019 Goffs Orby Yearling Sale in Ireland and bred by Kirsten Rausing’s Staffordstown Stud in England.

He has a genuine staying pedigree and was given the time to grow throughout his 2yo season.

He made a late start to his career as a 3yo but progressed well during his five runs and after finishing 4th in the Swedish St. Leger he won by more than 8 lengths on his last outing of 2021.

Back with a bang: Alligate made all in a canter in his first run of 2022, winning by 11 lengths for a new Official Rating of 94.

Pedigrees rarely come better than the one of Alligate.

A son of multiple Group 1 winning sire Archipenko (by Kingmambo) out of triple Group 1 winning Champion Albanova (by Alzao), Alligate hails from one of the most prolific lines in the stud book.

His dam won the G1 Rheinland-Pokal, G1 Deutschlandpreis and G1 Preis von Europa, and she herself is an own-sister to Alborada, the Champion 3yo filly worldwide on International Classifications, who won the G1 Dubai Champion Stakes twice.

Alligate is own brother to Group 3 Arc Trial winner Algometer (by Archipenko) – pictured – and half-brother to Listed winners Alwilda (by Hernando) and All At Sea (Sea The Stars).

Alwilda herself is now the dam of treble Group 1 heroine Alpinista (by Frankel).
