Along with siring another G1 winner Advertise, he has had a further four stakes winning 2YOs with three of those coming in the last seven days.

Advertise landed the G1 Phoenix Stakes at The Curragh in August.

That was off the back of an impressive victory in the G2 July Stakes at Newmarket having finished runner-up in the Coventry at Royal Ascot second up.

He ended his two-year-old season with a runner-up performance in the G1 Dewhurst Stakes.

This past week has seen Showcasing’s 2YOs perform in stakes races around Europe, starting with the win of Showout in the Listed Prix Zeddan at Deauville on October 23.

Next came Mohaather on October 27 in the G3 Horris Hill Stakes at Newbury before Devant won the G3 Prix Miesque at Maisons-Laffitte.

Weekend racing in New Zealand also saw two further stakes performers for Showcasing with Last Sight and Appellant finishing second and third in the Listed Wellesley Stakes.

His stakes winning 2YOs from last season Xpression and Bit Lippy have kicked off their 3YO seasons in fine form.

Xpression is the current favourite for the G1 1000 Guineas whilst Bit Lippy is a leading contender in the 2000 Guineas.

Showcasing has two more southern hemisphere crops to come.
