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.
