Bay gelding by Champs Elysees / Silver Star (Zafonic). Purchased at the Tattersalls October Book 1 Yearling Sale for 170,000gns. Barsanti is out of a Listed-placed mare who is a full sister to Champion 2yo Xaar. He is also closely related to Grade 1 winner Close Hatches.

Barsanti, now seven years young, is a five-time winner. He recorded a career best when finishing runner-up in the 2017 G2 Hardwicke Stakes at Royal Ascot and returned to the winner's enclosure over the same course and distance on his 2018 seasonal reappearance in the Listed Buckhounds Stakes, staying on bravely in the closing stages to hold off the strong challenge of Mirage Dancer. He followed that performance with a fourth in the G2 Hardwicke Stakes and fifth in the G2 Princess Of Wales Stakes, not beaten far on either occasion. A drop back to Listed class saw him run right back to form to finish second, beaten a neck in the Godolphin Stakes on his final start in 2018.

He has finished third in three Listed races over 1m4f this season and he ran a blinder when returning to handicap company in the Ebor where beaten 2 1/2 lengths into fifth and may have finished a lot closer with a clear run. The G2 Doncaster Cup looked to stretch his stamina, but he ran admirably to finish fourth, beaten 6 3/4 lengths.
