As a sire

  • His older brother is the Epsom Derby horse Dr Devious.
  • Suzuka Phoenix, winner of the Takamatsunomiya Kinen, is his nephew, and Dancing Rain, winner of the British Oaks and German Oaks, is his niece.
  • He was an extreme inbred horse, a 2 x 3 Northern Dancer.
  • He was not in much demand in Japan, partly because inbred blood was disliked, and partly because his older brother, Dr Devious, had been a stallion in Japan but did not do very well.
  • He worked in New Zealand as well as Japan from his first year as a stallion.
    He became a very in-demand stallion in New Zealand, and from 2000 he continued to stay in New Zealand instead of returning to Japan.
    In 2003, he officially became a stallion in New Zealand and continued to work there.
  • His major crops are listed below.
    C’est la guerre won the New Zealand Derby.
    Bramble Rose won the New Zealand Oaks.
    Eskimo Queen won the Queensland Oaks and Coolmore Classic in Australia.
  • There are also many other crops of his that are active mainly in Oceania.
