Palavacini is a half-brother, by Giant’s Causeway, to Elusive Pimpernel and Prince Gagarin from one of Mrs Patino’s famous families which includes Big Bad Bob and Champion mare Snow Fairy. Trained by John Dunlop he was beaten a length by Delegator on his juvenile debut, then easily won a Newbury maiden. His 3YO campaign included a Listed victory (beating Gr.2 winner Father Time) and an impressive win at York in the Strensall Stakes (Gr.3). His sire Giant’s Causeway is making a particular impact with his sons who include Footstepsinthesand, First Samurai and Shamardal, sire himself of Lope De Vega, who has made a notable breakthrough with his first runners. A select group of mares were covered in his first book and they will debut in 2015.
