Children of Deep Impact

Stallions by Deep Impact standing at studs in countries outside Japan

Today, I am going to do a very difficult thing for me.

I am poor at geography, but I am trying to make a summary of the countries where stallions by Deep Impact are now.

These days, I often see the news frequently on twitter that children of stallions by Deep Impact won races held all over the world.

I’m very happy.

It is said that stallions often move, so the following is information just at the present time.

I hope they will be loved for as long as possible in the studs they are in now.

The following is a list of the countries that stallions by Deep Impact are standing in.

In this article, I would like to write about stallions in foreign countries, so I will exclude those in Japan. 

Europe

I introduce stallions in Europe first.

Sweden 

Barocci and Geniale are standing in Sweden.

The profiles of the two horses are as follows:

Barocci

Born on February 28, 2009

Sire: Deep Impact (JPN) Dam: Bastet (IRE)

Dam’s sire: Giant’s Causeway (USA)

Geniale

Born on February 7, 2014

Sire: Deep Impact (JPN)  Dam: Sarafina (FR)

Dam’s sire: Refuse To Bend (IRE)

Barocci

Barocci is standing at Rävdansens Stud

They have their website, but unfortunately I can’t understand the contents as it is written in Swedish.

Barocci is a full brother to Beauty Parlour, the winner of the Poule D’Essai Des Pouliches (French1,000 Guineas).

Beauty Parlour - Memories of Children of Deep Impact 13 Fancy Blue won the French Oaks Last month. She also won the next ...

After running in races in France and the United States, he became a stallion in Sweden.

His first crop made their debut in 2018. I am hearing news about the success of his children.

Stud Fee

2019 3,000 Euro

2020  25,000 SEK (Swedish krona)

According to the website of Racing Post, his fee was set as private from 2015 to 2018.

Barocci takes second place in 2022 Swedish sire ranking🎉

He was in 8th place in 2019, 3rd place in 2020, and 2nd place from 2021.

Maxmartin, a 3-year-old colt by Barocci is also sixth in the prize-earning list for active horses.

He won 4 wins from 5 races at the age of 2 and finished 3 once.

So far, he has run in short-distance races from 1200m to 1400m.

His trainer says that he is aiming for other races, not the classic ones.

I’m looking forward to his future success.

Geniale (moved to Italy in October 2022)

*Added on October 15, 2022 

In October 2022, Geniale’s move to Italy was announced.

In Sweden, he produced three generations, crops born in 2021, 2022 and 2023.

I will leave the text from when he was in Sweden as it is, and add Geniale to the section of Italy.

Geniale is standing at Scandinavian racehorses.  There are  his cool pictures of  on the website.

Here is their Twitter account.

The website of Decamond Racing also carries his information.

The stud has a website, but unfortunately I couldn’t see it.  So, I linked their Twitter account.

As you know, Geniale moved to France after starting his career as a racehorse in Japan.

Geniale ridden by Jockey Yutaka Take ran in the Prix Messidor (Group 3), his first race in France.

It became a big topic that the horse who was in a lower class in Japan won the graded race in France.

After that, unfortunately he couldn’t win and retired last July.

It was said that he would become a stallion in Germany after he retired.

But, he did not meet the requirements for becoming a stallion in Germany.

So, it was decided he became a sire in Sweden.

Will he start his career as a stallion next year?

I hope that he will have excellent children as Barrocci, his senior in the country does.

*Added on January 4, 2022:

This is the latest video of Geniale shot in the Christmas season in 2021.

Added on November 14, 2021:

There was a new article about Geniale in the Racing Post.

The page was dated October 16th.

I have mixed feelings about this news.

Geniale is said to have become a stallion that collected broodmares most in Sweden this year.

Congratulations so far, but the number is just 36!

In addition to Geniale, there are four sires that have collected double-digit broodmares, but Barocci is not included …

The article said that Most Swedish breeders sent their broodmares to mate with stallions in the United Kingdom, France, Ireland and Germany.

Is that so! I learned about the situation in Sweden for the first time.

It’s a situation that is incomparable to the number of broodmares being collected by popular stallions in Japan.

I hope that Both Barocci and Geniale produce children who will win big races.

If they do so, I think that the number of their children will increase.

I found some interesting information about Barocci and Geniale. If you are interested, please click here

Keefers Salon is a website of Kiefers who was Geniale’s owner when he was active.

His latest information was posted on that site.

According to a column written by a reporter in France, Mr. Yasufumi Sawada,

Geniale is doing well without suffering from the harsh cold of Scandinavia.

He is easy to handle and does not have the roughness seen in some stallions,

and is beloved by the stud staff.

The calmness of the personality is often said in other stallions by Deep Impact.

Best of all, he is loved.

Moreover, the article mentions as follows:

The characteristic of his foals is that many of them have a tall and splendid frame.

Their body width seem to be an average size.

They will become turf horses.

This year is his third year of stallion life in Sweden.

The number of mares who went to him “is predicted to be between 20 and 30”.

Stud Fee

2021  25,000 SEK (Swedish krona)

2022 20,000SEK

United Kingdom

In England, there is Study of Man who won the 2018 French Derby.

The profile of Study of Man is as follows:

Study of Man

Born on April 9, 2015

Sire: Deep Impact (JPN) Dam: Second Happiness (USA)

Dam’s sire: Storm Cat (USA)

Study of Man retired in 2019.

After retiring, he is standing at Lanwades Stud, England.

On the website, you can see the video that he was walking after arriving there.

His body looks relatively solid and strong.

His first crop will be born in 2021. I am looking forward to their future activities.

Added on January 23, 2021:

The Racing Post has news of the birth of his first child.

According to Lanwades Stud where he is standing, he is being supported by several major European breeders.

It means that their mares went to him.

The stud said that Study of Man would become a major asset in the European breeding industry.

I would be happy if that really happened.

 

Stud Fee

2020 £15,000

2021, 2022, 2023  £12,500

Ireland

Saxon Warrior, the winner of the English 2000 guineas in 2018 is standing in Ireland.

Saxon Warrior

Born on January 26, 2015

Sire: Deep Impact (JPN) Dam: Maybe (IRE)

Dam’s sire: Galileo (IRE)

Saxon Warrior also won the Racing Post Trophy in 2017 and had two wins in Group 1 races.

He retired after running in a race in September 2018 and became a stallion at Coolmore Stud in Ireland .

A video introducing him as a stallion is posted on the Coolmore Stud website, and you can see his race footage.

Photos posted on the website are all cool. It seems like spending money by using a good photographer.

His first crop was born this year.

A filly out of Well Away was listed on the Select Sale in Japan and was sold for 41 million yen.

Saxon Warrior has been to Australia as a shuttle stallion and visited the country this year, too.

Al Ain who was standing in Japan was also scheduled to be shuttled to Australia.

But, it was canceled due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection.

I think Saxon Warrior could go there because there was also a Coolmore stud in the country.

Regarding Saxon Warrior’s first crop, Coolmore often announces the news that his children was sold at a high price on sale.

On their website, they give the following comment:

His first yearlings sold for ¥190,000,000, ¥90,000,000, €540,000, €370,000, 325,000gns, 300,000gns,

€270,000, 205,000gns, €200,000, €160,000, €125,000, 120,000gns, 115,000gns, 115,000gns, 105,000gns, €100,000 etc.

His children were also sold at a high price in the Select Sale of Japan.

A child of an expected stallion, Saxon Warrior has finally made his debut!

The first colt, SER SED won his first race.  It was a 1100m race in France.

In other words, it means that it was the first start, first win for the entire children of the sire.

Saxon Warrior got off to a great start as a stallion.  I wish him more and more success.

Appendix

*Added on April 29, 2022

Saxon Warrior seems to stay in Australia as a shuttle stallion in 2022, too.

This is the fourth consecutive year since 2019.

This year’s stud fee is A $ 19,250.

Last year it was A $ 13,750, so it went up quite a bit.

As of April 29, his two children have debuted.

As I wrote earlier, one of them won.

I don’t think it’s the stage where the fee will increase due to the performance of his children.

But I think he is in demand in Australia.

Appendix

Victoria Road, a 2-year-old colt by Saxon Warrior claimed his first G1 win on November 4th🎉

He won the Breeders Cup Jevenile Turf in the United States.

It is a 1600m race limited to 2 years old.

It is also the first G1 victory for his sire.

It’s wonderful to have his first G1 win on such a big stage that the world is watching.

It was also nice to see Jockey Moore complimenting his sire, Saxon Warrior and the pedigree of Deep Impact in his interviews.

Victoria Road has 4 wins from 8 starts so far. Four wins in a row.

His previous race was the French GIII race, the Prix de Condé, and became a group race winner.

Having won two races in France, the connections have clearly stated that they will aim to win the French Derby with him next year.

Perhaps he has been judged to have the aptitude.

He will run in different races from the ones that Auguste Rodin will participate in.

Auguste Rodin by Deep Impact belongs to the same stable.

So far, 21 colts and fillies by Saxon Warrior have won.

Three of them achieved group race victories.

They have won in Great Britain, Ireland, France, Spain, Turkey and the United States.

In Australia, the sire’s progeny is scheduled to debut soon, and further success is expected.

Martinborough

*Updated on January 22, 2023

There is Martinborough in France.

Martinborough

Born on August 2, 2009

Sire: Deep Impact (JPN) Dam: Halwa Song (USA)

Dam’s sire: Nureyev (USA)

He has two wins in Group 3 races, the Chunichi Shimbun Hai and the Niigata Kinen.

He retired after running in a race in November 2016 and moved to France to become a stallion.

He reminds me of his full brother, Frere Jacques.

He was one of the first crop sired by Deep Impact and regrettably died due to a breakdown in a race.

I want Martinborough to do his best in France, even for his brother.

Martinborough was standing at the Haras de Grandcamp until 2022.

However, it seems that this stud withdrew from the stallion business and scaled back.

Stallions who were there were moved to other places.

In 2023, Martinborough will also be at a stud called the Haras De La Baie in Pontorson.

Pontorson is located about 10 km away from the famous Mont-Saint-Michel. I would love to go.

I put a link to the website of the stud, but the stallion page has not been updated yet.

In the new place, he will be active as an sire for obstacle race horses as he has already produced good offsprings in the field.

Appendix

Martinborough’s child won a listed obstacle race in France!!

It was the first win in flat and obstacle listed races for the stallion.

The winner was Le Garlaban, a 4-year-old gelding.

Martinborough’s children were struggling in flat races, but some horses won in obstacles.

Obstacle races are popular in Europe.

I hope he will establish himself as a stallion that is strong in the races.

Appendix

*Added on May 29, 2022 

Martinborough’s colt (or filly) won a group race for the first time in Libya, a country in North Africa!

AL MONTASIR won the Al Jade Cup, a 3-year-old local GII on May 7🎉

It was a dirt 1600m race.

His dam is LAURELDEAN DESERT (GB) by GREEN DESERT.

AL MONTASIR was born in Libya.

So, it seems that his dam moved to the country after conception.

It was confirmed that there is at least one more horse by Martinborough in Libya.

His (or her) name is WASFAH. He was also born in the country.

His dam is LADY VERDE(FR). The dam’s sire is MESHAHEER.

In March, he ran in the same race as AL MONTASIR and finished 4th.

Libya has just finished the civil war two years ago.

However, when you watch the video of the race event, there is an atmosphere that the whole country is going to liven up horse racing.

It was very interesting.

I hope to see that Martinborough’s children will win group races in France, which is his base.

Keiai Nautique

In December 2022, it was announced that Keiai Nautique would retire to stud in France.

First of all, let me introduce you to his profile.

Keiai Nautique

Born on April 7, 2015

Sire: Deep Impact (JPN) Dam: Keiai Gerbera (JPN)

Dam’s sire: Smarty Jones (USA)

He is a full brother to Fierce Impact who won three G1 races in Australia and entered the stallion there.

He also has a full brother, Keiai Shelby who is a four-year-old horse and has won three races so far.

Keiai Nautique won 3 out of 28 races.

He won his debut race in June 2017, and in the next year, the NHK Mile Cup (GI).

Since then, he has not been able to win, and in 2021 moved to Australia at the age of 6.

He ran in 4 races in the country, but unfortunately he couldn’t win.

His last race was the 2021 GI McKinnon Stakes, finishing fourth.

There has been no news about him in 2022.

However, it was announced this time that he would be a stallion in France.

He will stand at Karwin Farm in Bagnoles-de-l’Orne in the Orne department.

It is a new stud that will start the stallion business from 2023.

I haven’t found their site yet, but I’ll post a link to the stud owner’s Twitter account.

An article on a French site was helpful to know Keiai Nautique who will become a stallion in France.

There was also an article on Karwin Farm.

I also found a video of Keiai Nautique after he moved to France.

The video was filmed on January 21, 2023.

Stud Fee

2023  €5,000

Italy

Albert Dock

There is Albert Dock in Italy.

Albert Dock

Born on January 21, 2012

Sire:Deep Impact (JPN)  Dam: Golden Dock A (USA)

Dam’s sire: Unusual Heat (USA)

Albert Dock won two Group 3 races, the Kokura Daishoten and the Tanabata-sho like Martinbourough introduced in the above.

He retired after running in a race September 2016.  Then, he moved to Italy to become a stallion.

He is standing at Società Agricola di Besnate stud. He arrived in the country in 2018.  His first crop will make their debut in 2021.

I’ve heard news that horse racing in Italy is not going well, but is the situation getting better now?

Appendix

*Added on November 27, 2022

The Premio Federico Tesio(GII) was held on November 13th.

Tempesti, a 3-year-old colt by Albert Dock took long-awaited victory in a group race🎉

This is also the first win in a group race for his sire.

Six horses ran, and Tramaglino, another son of Albert Dock, came in 4th.

This was the first time that Tempesti changed his jockey since his debut.

I was excited even before the race when I heard that Frankie Dettori would ride him.

Exceeded my expectations, they delivered excellent results.

It was the victory that Tempesti beat horses from Germany.

The opponents were last year’s German Derby horse, Sisfahan and another talented horse, Best of Lips.

In Italian Derby held this spring, Tempesti unfortunately finished second.

He also finished 3rd in the Premio Roma, his previous race.

Although he was in higher places every time, he has never been able to win in group races.

I’m really happy that he was able to win a group race at the age of 3.

I heard that he may run in races in other country next year.

I’m looking forward to seeing his further success.

Stud Fee

2018 ~ 2020 €4,000

2021 €3,500

2022 €3,000

2022 €6,000

The Stud fee of Albert Dock for 2023 will be doubled to €6,000 from the previous year!

This is a change in response to the success of the 3-year-old and 2-year-old generations that have debuted so far.

These two crops have about 15 offspring each.

I am very happy that such a small number of horses are achieving big success.

I look forward to further progress in the future.

Appendix

*Added on January 8, 2023

Albert Dock is Italy’s leading sire for 2022!!

Only two generations of the sire’s offspring have debuted.

They are the first crop born in 2019 and the one born in 2020.

I wonder if it’s okay that he became the leading sire even though there are only a few children.

But honestly, I want to congratulate him on his achievements.

Interesting news was posted on the website of the stud that Albert Dock is standing at.

The black type acquisition rate of his first crop is 18.75%, which is the third place after Dubawi and Frankel.

The number of offspring is too different from the top two, so a simple comparison is not possible.

However, it is certain that the high acquisition rate is one of the reasons why he became the leading stallion.

Geniale (Moved to Italy in October 2022)

On the website of Kiefers, who was the owner during his active days, there was information about the stud Geniale is standing at in Italy.

Geniale is in a stud called Allevamento Massimo Farina in the central part of the country.

I don’t have any other details, but will add them when I do.

For information about Geniale’s career and when he was in Sweden, please see

Section of Geniale in Sweden

 

Actually, I wanted to write an article about stallions overseas, but it has become too long. 

So I’ll stop here. I will write more later!
