A Case Of You was a champion sprinter at 3 and 4 and a winner of the Gr1 Prix de l’Abbaye de Longchamp, Europe’s premier sprint race on Europe’s biggest raceday, the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.

This was the race won by our late champion 2yo sire Var.

The winner of 7 of his 22 starts, A Case Of You was a global traveller who raced in 6 different countries.

Look at his pedigree here.

He was precocious enough to win the Gr3 Anglesey Stakes at 2.

He won the Abbaye at 3.

He also won the Gr1 Al Quoz Sprint in Dubai at 4.

The son of Hot Streak will be syndicated and Kevin Sommerville may be contacted in that regard.
