###This impressive galloper was bred on the same cross as Champion FRANKEL ###.

By DESERT KING - the winner of three Gr.1 races over a variety of distances - the Irish Derby over 2400m, the National Stakes over 1400m and the Irish 2000 Guineas over 1600m - has made his mark at stud around in both Australia and around the world.

The sire of 26 stakes winners, Desert King is of course best known as the sire of super star mare Makybe Diva who wrote her name into history as the only triple winner of the Melbourne Cup.

Desert King is no one-horse sire, also represented in the Gr.1 winners circle by the likes of Desert War (Champion Australian Middle Distance Galloper with six Gr.1 wins including two Epsom Handicaps), French Champion Older Stayer in Mr Dinos, German Star in Darsalam, Irish mare Chelsea Rose and Australian Derby Winner in Lachlan River. As well as the terrific mare Real Love, winner of six Group races including the Perth Cup.

You don't need to go looking overseas for an expensive stayer , this young horse does indeed have a strong international pedigree , however he was bred, born and raised in Australia and is by the Proven Sire in Australia Desert King.

His dam is from the family that produced Hailing from an outstanding European family - one which descends from the famed matriarch Pretty Polly - this gelding can boast amongst his relations the Gr.1 winners Sigy, Kasimir and Afrikaburn... as well as the Australasian stakes winners Eccentricity, Zlatko and Kapsdan.

This is a consistent family with this fellow being out of Tikhii Don - a granddaughter of the legendary Sadler's Wells - whose first four dams have between them produced 21 winners from 26 runners; an 80% strike rate!

This combination of Danehill and Sadler's Wells is proving a great force internationally and of course the mighty Frankel is bred this way. As a bonus this horse also boasts a cross of Sadler's Wells' influential grandam Special.

####This horse is by a proven sire of Cups horses in Australia and he has the class of his International Dam line and the benefit of being born and raised in Australian conditions.####
