A lovely stayer by Fastnet Rock from Magnolia Lane, a full sister to four-time Ascot Gold Cup winner Yeats, he was bought by David Ellis at the Deauville Sale, France for 70,000 euros.
Raced by Sir Peter Vela, Sir Patrick Hogan, Mohammed Moussa and Laurie Laxon, he was trained initially by David Wachman and latterly by Jessica Harrington.
On 23 April 2017 he was a stylish winner of the Group 3 Coolmore Stud Vintage Crop Stakes at Navan, Ireland when defeating 2016 Ascot Gold Cup winner, and current 2017 favourite for that event, the highly regarded Order of St George. He was ridden by Colm O’Donoghue.
In June 2017 Torcedor was 5th in the Group 1 Ascot Gold Cup – following this, he was runner up in both the Group 1 Irish St Leger at The Curragh in September 2017 and the Group 2 Qipco British Champions Distance Cup at Ascot in October 2017. On both occasions he was defeated by the outstanding stayer Order of St George.
In May 2018 he returned to Ascot and was a six length winner of the 60,000 euros Group 3 Sagato Stakes, again ridden by Colm O’Donoghue, becoming the first ever Irish trained horse to claim the event.
In June 2018 Torcedor returned for Royal Ascot week and gave an outstanding sight when finishing a close third in the Group 1 Ascot Gold Cup.
Torcedor has raced 18 times for five wins and seven placings with earnings in excess of S800,000.
