Wigmore Hall

With grandsires Sadler's Wells (named after the famous London theatre) and Theatrical (IRE), the owners of Wigmore Hall used the cultural flourish from his lineage as an homage to the London hall for chamber orchestra and solo recitals. The horse, like its namesake, has an international flair and has performed in Dubai, Chicago and Toronto, as well as other hubs. His big win came last year in the Canadian G. I Sword Dancer. He'd used the Million as a prep for the mile and a half Sword Dancer, through which Jaimie Spencer saved all the ground and returned the favorite to the Winners Circle. He ran well in the Million despite the troubled trip, grabbing 4th behind Dean's Kitten, though he was no match for powerhouses Cape Blanco or Gio Ponti. The year before he grabbed second in the Secretariet behind Donegal's daisy-cutting roan Paddy O'Prado. So he knows the course well and has always run well.

His form has been a little off lately though he's faced some tougher fields.
