Leaves the Mill Reef line in danger of coming to an end. Maybe Conduit the last hope unless the final crops yield something.

Sir Percy still going strong and may yet have a son at stud. In Germany Lord of England doing well too

Dalakhani was a very high class racehorse, and when he retired to stud he represented an excellent out-cross for the countless mares in-bred to Northern Dancer. Conduit got him off to a dream start but he could not maintain the impetus. Interestingly, two others of the Aga Khan's, Sinndar and Daylami, had similar profiles of top racehorses but disappointing sires.
As a side point, the level of in-breeding to ND is now difficult to avoid. Whether this is a good or bad thing is open to debate...
