A good looking chestnut gelding by Dutch Art out of Israar, Contrast is a well-related half brother to multiple winners Rutland Boy (also placed in the Group 2 Al Maktoum Challenge at Meydan) and Soul Searcher. He is also half brother to winners Harvestfortheworld (also placed in the Group 3 Airlie Stud Gallinule Stakes) and Exceed Power.

Contrast won his first race since joining us at Yarmouth in August 2019 over ten furlongs. It was a memorable day as it brought up a double for owner Mr Saha. Contrast followed up at Lingfield in September.

Contrast's latest win came at Beverley in July 2021 for Joanna Mason.
