Not a big surprise after his last two runs.  Fee not announced yet.  Dual derby winner, good sire, not a bad page, most of HH's are though!

I'm guessing E15-20K first season-or is that way too high?

Sounds high to me but suspect it will be even higher.

A cheaper option than his Sire maybe?

Interesting to see how they market him-a thorough stayer in a not so hot crop (a few notable exceptions excluded...can see him of being of interest to the NH breeders, although the Gilltown may not want that?

He really is of no appeal isnt he?

But then again, the competition isn't going to be great and being one of however many at Mehmas  (sic?) who could be the next Lillbourne Lad isn't necessarily preferable to a well bred proper racehorse.

I'm not afraid to try something different every now and then but I fear this might be a step to far!

Of course, looks are everything and they nearly always go hand in hand with a good sound mating so if that's what this fellow brings to your mare's table then he shouldn't be dismissed out of hand.

Its a typical HH Aga Khan staying pedigree, when everyone seems to want speed in the breed PM!?

I guess he would be a potential sire for a speedy mare to inject a bit of stamina into a pedigree?

combination of 12 & soft ground requirements makes him unattractive............mr weld did a very good job winning two derbys with this horse..........his last two runs wont do anything to attract breeders
