Champion back-to-back Doncaster Handicap (G1) winner Sacred Falls keeps himself in illustrious company. One of only nine horses to take two Doncasters since its inception in 1866, the feat is all the more impressive when considering he was just three when he took his first. Sacred Falls had developed an enviable reputation as an unbeaten colt in his native New Zealand, taking out the New Zealand 2000 Guineas (G1) along the way. Coming across the ditch he ran second to fellow Champion It’s A Dundeel in the Rosehill Guineas (G1) prior to his first Doncaster victory. Sacred Falls’ brilliance in the 2014 Doncaster during The Championships was something to behold, the horse showing steely determination in testing conditions to take out the prize. Almost as impressive, however, was his run just one week later in week two of The Championships when he took on It’s A Dundeel in the Queen Elizabeth (G1) and ran him down to be beaten less than a length second.
