He’s been in Japan for all his career, but has a few horses over here because of the Sheikhy Mo connection.
Of European runners he also sired Simeon (Classic Trial winner and placed in French Derby), Noctilucent (Listed winner in France) and Lammas and Inaaq.
He’s not done great in Japan though – his highest rank on the stallion lists has been 18th and most years has been 20-30ish. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â He’s had some decent horses, particularly Meisho Ramses and Maruka Senryo but they are Grade 3 winners at best.
I always think he wasn’t made for stud duties – mainly due to the fact that his biggest asset was the abilty to fight and keep pulling out more. Undoubtably he was going to sire winners – but none that would be top class IMO. Any thoughts on what makes the ideal stallion etc…
