Mtoto was a racehorse foaled in 1983. He recovered so well from the foot problems which dogged his early career that when he went to stud, he did so as the winner of the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes, and double winner of both the Eclipse Stakes and Prince of Wales's Stakes. He very nearly added the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe to this illustrious list too. All this from a horse who, by the end of his three-year-old campaign, had won only once, and that was a small maiden race at Haydock Park. His first important success came as a four-year-old in the Brigadier Gerard Stakes at Sandown Park. He really blossomed in his final year, 1988, showing he was as good over one and a half miles as he was over ten furlongs and ending his racing life with a neck second to Tony Bin in the Arc. He stood at Aston Upthorpe Stud at a fee of £18,000, where he sired the Derby winner Shaamit, the Ascot Gold Cup winner Celeric and many other horses including Presenting, Arbatax and Maylane. Mtoto is Grandire to the 2008 Cheltenham winner Denman.
