Open Class victory for At Will

Son of Admire Moon strikes at Kyoto

Admire Moon’s consistent son At Will returned to the winner's enclose on Saturday 23 April when running out the game winner of the Hikone Stakes at Kyoto. Beating 17 rivals in the Open contest over six furlongs on turf, he was adding to his victories in the Clover Sho as a juvenile and Mibu Tokubetsu in 2014.

Bred by Tomita Bokujo, At Will is a full sibling to Fine Choice, the winner of the G3 Hakodate Nisai Stakes and a half-brother to last season’s Group winning juvenile Candy Barows.

Admire Moon reached his highest ever sire ranking in 2015, with his Stakes winners and Group horses featuring three-year-olds Fumino Moon and Moon Express. He stands this season at a fee of 2 million yen.
