European roster on show during open day extravaganza

Breeders are welcomed to Dalham Hall Stud, Kildangan Stud and Haras du Logis during January open house events

The entire roster of Darley’s European-based stallions, including the recently returned shuttlers, will be available for breeders to view at separate events in the UK, Ireland and France in the coming weeks.

First up is Dalham Hall Stud, where the stallions will be parading on 9 and 10 January, at 11.30am and 2.15pm each day.

They will include G1 Queen Anne-winning duo Palace Pier (pictured) – who recorded no fewer than five top-flight victories during his outstanding career and enjoyed tremendous success at the sales with his first foals – and new addition to the roster for 2024: the impeccably bred son of Frankel, Triple Time.

Also on show will be Cracksman, the sire of last year’s Arc-winning Champion, triple G1 winner and outstanding sprinter Perfect Power (whose first crop will hit the ground shortly), fellow speedster Harry Angel and the ever-dependable Territories.

They will be joined by Too Darn Hot, who has made an outstanding start to his stud career, plus another new recruit in Dubawi’s most prolific G1 winner, Modern Games.

Kildangan Stud will once again take part in the Irish Stallion Trail on 12 and 13 January and will open its doors from 11am to 3pm each day.

New to the roster this year is unbeaten Champion juvenile and Classic winner Native Trail. He will parade alongside Naval Crown (Dubawi), winner of the G1 Platinum Jubilee at Royal Ascot and whose first foals will be arriving soon.

Another exciting son of Dubawi on show will be Space Blues, plus of course his paternal half-brother and heir to the Dubawi dynasty, Night Of Thunder. Completing the lineup at Kildangan are Blue Point, Earthlight, Ghaiyyath, Raven’s Pass and Teofilo.

The action moves to France on 20 and 21 January, where Haras du Logis will be open to visitors from 1pm to 4pm on Saturday and 9am to midday on Sunday.

Shamardal’s unbeaten G1-winning juvenile who went on to land the French Guineas, Victor Ludorum will be available to view, together with European Champion Cloth Of Stars, already establishing himself as a successful jumps sire.

If you would like to attend any of the above open days, we would be very grateful if you could contact the nominations team to let them know that you are coming.

If these dates are unsuitable, we are very happy to arrange a private viewing at a time to suit you.
