Recently, there has been an increase in the use of shuttle sires by Deep Impact.

Shuttle stallions take advantage of the differences in breeding season between the northern and southern hemispheres.

Winter is the covering season for thoroughbreds.

Sires who are in the northern hemisphere do their duties in the winter.

Then, they move to the southern hemisphere in the summer of the northern area to accept mares there.

The same is true for stallions in the southern hemisphere.

Today I will write about shuttled sires by Deep Impact.

Destination: Australia

In Australia, stallions in Japan and a sire normally in Europe are shuttled.

First, let’s start with sires in Japan.

Real Impact

Real Impact retired in 2016.

He traveled to Australia when he was 7 years old.

He won the GI George Rider Stakes, his first race in the country.

He also finished second in the next race, the GI Doncaster Mile.

After his retirement, he became a stallion at Shadai Stallion Station.

From 2021, he is standing at the Yushun Stallion Station.

In the 2016/2017, 2017/2018 and 2018/2019 seasons, he went to Australia for three consecutive years.

The stud he stood at was Arrowfield Stud.

His stud fee was 19,250 AUD.

Representative progeny in Australia

Count De Rupee Born in 2017 Gelding

Main races he won: Tab Victory Stakes 2022 (GⅡ)、The Tab Gong 2021

Lunar Impact  Born in 2017 Mare

Main races she won: City Of Belmont-Wa Oaks 2021 (GⅢ)

Unfortunately, Count De Rupee passed away in August 2022.

May he rest in peace.

Mikki Isle

Mikki Isle retired in 2016.

After his retirement, he has stood at Shadai Stallion Station.

Like Real Impact, he was also used as a shuttle sire in Australia for three consecutive years.

He stayed in the country for the 2017/2018, 2018/2019 and 2019/2020 seasons.

He was at Arrowfield Stud. His stud fee was 13,750 AUD.

Representative progeny in Australia

Dragonstone  Born in 2018 Gelding

Main races he won: Bob Charley AO Stakes 2022 (listed)

Unfortunately, his offspring in Australia has not yet won group races.

I look forward to seeing their success in the future.

Real Steel

Real Steel retired in 2018.

After his retirement, he has stood at Shadai Stallion Station.

The 2-year-old generation who debuted this year is his first crop.

He went to Australia as a shuttle sire for the 2019/2020 season.

He stood at Arrowfield Stud. His stud fee was 16,500 AUD.

His progeny in the country has not debuted yet.

Looking at the stallions that moved from Japan to Australia, I feel that Real Impact is highly evaluated.

After all, I think his victory in the GI race there became a big selling point.

Al Ain was also scheduled to stand at Chatswood Stud in Victoria for the 2020/2021 season.

However, due to the spread of the coronavirus, he was unable to travel to Australia unfortunately.

Next, I would like to introduce a stallion that has been shuttled from Europe to Australia.

Saxon Warrior

Saxon Warrior retired in 2018.

After his retirement, he has stood at Coolmore Stud in Ireland.

He went to Australia as a shuttle sire for four consecutive years.

He stayed there for the 2019/2020, 2020/2021, 2021/2022 and 2022/2023 seasons.

In 2020, when Al Ain couldn’t visited there, Saxon Warrior moved to the country.

His stud fees in Australia

2019  30,000 AUD

2020  17,600 AUD

2021  13,750 AUD

2022  19,250 AUD

Saxon Warrior’s first crop who was produced in Europe debuted in 2022.

There has already been a G1 winning horse.

His offspring in Australia also become two years old.

However, the sire has not yet had a winner there.

Destination: New Zealand

Satono Aladdin stayed in New Zealand as a shuttle stallion.

Satono Aladdin

This is my first time writing about Satono Aladdin on this blog.

So I’ll start by introducing his profile.

Satono Aladdin

Born on February 16, 2011

Sire: Deep Impact (JPN) Dam: Magic Storm (USA)

Sire of Dam: Storm Cat (USA)

He has a full older sister, Lachesis, who won the Queen Elizabeth Cup (GI) in 2014.

His full little sister is Flawless Magic.

Satono Aladdin won his maiden race in August 2013.

He was expected to win a GI race due to his high quality, but he was not able to do so.

However, at the age of six, he won the long-awaited GI victory at the Yasuda Kinen in 2017.

He retired after the Hong Kong Mile in December of the same year.

After his retirement, he became a stallion at Shadai Stallion Station.

It has been announced that he will stand at the Breeders Stallion Station for the 2023 season.

Satono Aladdin traveled to New Zealand in 2018, 2019, 2021 and 2022 as a shuttle stallion.

He stood at Rich Hill Stud.  His stud fee was 12,500 NZ dollars.

Like Al Ain, he was planning to go to the country in 2020.

However, due to the spread of the coronavirus, the schedule was cancelled.

Representative progeny in the southern hemisphere

Grand Impact Born in 2019 Colt

Main race he won: Catanach’s Blue Sapphire 2022 (GⅢ of Australia)

Sacred Satono  Born in 2019 Colt

Main race he won: Mitchell Family Bonecrusher Stakes 2022 (GⅢ of NZ)

Tokyo Tycoon    Born in 2020 Gelding

Main race he won: Karaka Million 2YO 2023 (Listed NZ)

To date, Satono Aladdin has not produced a group race winner in Japan.

However, his first crop who was produced in New Zealand has already won two group races.

He seems to have a high aptitude for horse racing in the Southern Hemisphere.

So, I am looking forward to seeing their further success.

Destination: Ireland

So far, I mentioned stallions who moved from the northern hemisphere to the southern one.

From here, I will introduce a stallion that transfers from the southern hemisphere to Europe.

Tosen Stardom

Happy news came in December 2022.

Tosen Stardom in Australia will be shuttled to Ireland for 2023.

He will stand at Zenith Stallion Station, which will be newly built in County Westmeath Farm.

The stud fee is 7,000 euros.

The connection said that they focused on the goodness of his pedigree.

A lawyer in Dubai who is also an owner breeder is said to be involved in the use as a shuttle stallion this time.

He says he wants to produce offspring who can compete in classic races in Dubai.

Tosen Stardom may be better suited to horse racing in Europe than in Australia.

Progeny of Deep Impact are also doing well in Dubai.

First of all, I want him to be healthy and produce good offspring.

 

So far, I have introduced stallions by Deep Impact who have been used as shuttle stallions.

Australian-bred offspring sometimes race in unexpected places such as Singapore and Macau.

I’m also looking forward to the spread of blood.
