Spirit of Acklam is a beautiful colt by Cracksman out of winning mare Zacchera. He is a half-brother to winners from around the world! Half-sister Santa Monica won four Graded races in the USA, and half-brother Grand Promenade's wins include the Grade 2 Lexus Bart Cummings Handicap at Flemington Park, Australia. Half-sister Oriental Girl is a winner closer to home, having won three times at Bath and once at Chepstow.

Spirit Of Acklam won his first race when successful at Ayr in September under Joanna Mason and made a successful return in 2024 when successful at Ripon.
