Andrew Balding


Andrew became the licensed trainer at Kingsclere in January 2003 when he succeeded his father Ian, to whom he had been assistant since 1999. Born in London in 1972, Andrew hails from a family that is steeped in racing history. His great grandfather Aubrey Hastings was the trainer of no fewer than four Grand National winners, including Ascetic Silver who he rode himself to win the great race in 1907.

Jamie Spencer


Jamie Spencer was born June 8, 1980 in County Tipperary, Ireland. He is married to Emma, daughter of former English trainer Lynda Ramsden. He also is the godson of Irish racing and breeding kingpin John Magnier, owner of Coolmore Stud. His father George was a trainer in Ireland, best known for 1963 Champion Hurdle winner Winning Fair.  Spencer won the 2009 Arlington Million aboard Cape Blanco

Pearl Bloodstock Ltd.


Pearl Bloodstock was formed in 2010 for Sheikh Fahad Al Thani from the Royal Family of Qatar. 


Side Glance is the only performer of note by Passing Glance. A son of the Nureyev stallion Polar Falcon, Passing Glance was Germany's highweight older miler of 2003, courtesy of a successful raid on Baden-Baden in the Oettingen-Rennen. He also took that season's Sovereign Stakes at Salisbury and the 2004 Diomed at Epsom. Passing Glance is out of the prolific mare Spurned, the dam of six other stakes performers, including Group 3 winner Hidden Meadow and Group 2-placed stakes scorers Scorned and Kingsclere.

Side Glance's dam, Averami, won once in England. She is also responsible for Rawaki, who garnered black-type when third in the Braveheart Handicap at Hamilton on May 17.

Averami is by the smart sprinter Averti, winner of the five-furlong King George at Glorious Goodwood in 1997 and placegetter in such top-level dashes as the Prix de l'Abbaye de Longchamp and the Nunthorpe at York. The Warning stallion went on to sire an Abbaye winner in Avonbridge, Europe's champion sprinter of 2005, and his other headliner, speedy juvenile Wunders Dream, captured the Flying Childers and Molecomb in 2002.

Side Glance descends from the same family as Australian Group 1 winner Markham, the third-place finisher in the 1997 Melbourne Cup. But his most illustrious relatives are further back -- 1978 Epsom/Irish Derby star and influential sire Shirley Heights; Pentire, another multiple highweight and successful sire; and two-time European champion filly Divine Proportions.

Starter Analysis

Gelding finished a good fourth in the Woodbine Mile in 2001 in his one previous start in North America and was last seen when unplaced in the Group One Prince of Wales Stakes at Ascot in June. Well travelled son of Passing Glance finished fourth in the Dubai World Cup earlier in the year for trainer Andrew Balding who has achieved success shipping runners around the world and gets Jamie Spencer to ride and Lasix for the first time but six-year-old has yet to win a Grade or Group One event.
