While Grandeur is considered a European invader, he has made his way to American so often in the last year that he may think of it as home. The gray or roan gelding spent two months in California in late 2012 where he won the Twilight Derby and Hollywood Turf Cup and came in second in the Hollywood Derby.
Grandeur has had success in his home country as well through the years, winning Handicaps at multiple tracks in England with regular jockey William Buick. He has been an extremely consistent horse, only missing the board a hand full of times during his 2 years on the track.
The colt won the Greene King Foudnation Stakes at Goodwood in England in 2013 as well as the Coral Winter Derby Trial and the Coral Easter Championship in 2014. He also finished third in the States in the Grade 1 Man o' War Stakes.
By Verglas, Grandeur is out of a half sister to graded stakes winner Far Cry and comes from the immediate female family of graded stakes winner Dress Rehearsal. With a page full of stakes horses, it is no surprise the gelding has had stakes success on the grass in multiple countries.
