Children of Deep Impact

Stallions by Deep Impact standing at studs in countries outside Japan

< PR >


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.

I introduce stallions in Europe first.


Barocci and Geniale are standing in Sweden.

The profiles of the two horses are as follows:


Born on February 28, 2009

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

Dam’s sire: Giant’s Causeway (USA)


Born on February 7, 2014

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

Dam’s sire: Refuse To Bend (IRE)


Barocci is standing at Rävdansens Stud.

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.


*Added on February 26, 2023 

Maxmartin, a 3-year-old colt by Barocci has been named Sweden’s best 2-year-old horse for 2022! !

Maxmartin has won 4 wins from 5 races and finished 3 once.

His first goal of the year is the 2000 Guineas in Sweden.

After the race, his trainer says that he isn’t aiming for the Swedish Derby, but another race.

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 May 4, 2022

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”.


*Added on May 30, 2024

The offspring by Geniale achieved their first victory ! !

Allegretto, a three-year-old gelding, ran in a 1600m maiden race at Bro Park Racecourse.

He was an overwhelming favorite.

At the last corner, he got out of the way smoothly and crossed the finish line with a huge lead.

Allegretto debuted on May 15th and finished second.

This is his first win in his second race.

It was a comfortable victory by increasing the distance from 1200m to 1600m.

The sire’s first year offspring are three years old, born in 2021.

Six horses are registered as racehorses.

Geniale was originally planned to enter stud in Germany, which delayed his start in Sweden.

I am waiting for the debut of his offspring following Allegretto.

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.

Stud Fee

2020 £15,000

2021 ~ 2024  £12,500

Offspring of Study Of Man achieved a long-awaited first win in a group race!

The race was 1600m Beresford Stakes (GII) held at Curragh Racecourse in Ireland on September 23rd.

Deep one, a two-year-old colt held up well and was strong until the end.

He won his debut race on May 19th.

He has had 5 races so far, winning 3 and finishing 2nd once.

This year, he will take a break and prepare for next year.

The Beresford Stakes is a career race that was also won by Saxon Warrior in 2017.

I look forward to his further success in the next year.

So far, five children of Study Of Man, including Deepone, have won.

Following him, I would like to see more offspring that win in group races.


*Added on May 11, 2024

In an interview with the owner of Lanwades Stud at which Study Of Man is standing, exciting news was revealed!

Alpinista, who is in the same farm, visited Study Of Man this year and is now in foal! !

As you know, Alpinista won the 2022 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.

She retired in the same year and became a broodmare.

This year she gave birth to a filly by Dubawi.


Ever since Study Of Man went to the stud, the owner has expressed her desire to mate these two horses in the future.

However, for that to happen, Study Of Man needs to have a proven stud record as a stallion.

In fact, another stallion was originally considered for Alpinista this year.

However, after seeing the success of the recent offspring by Study Of Man, I wonder if she changed her mind.

It’s good advertising for the sire, and it would be even better if they produced a successful foal.

First of all, I pray that a healthy foal will be born safely next year.


Saxon Warrior

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.

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.

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.


*Added on May 26, 2024

Borna, a 3-year-old colt by Saxon Warrior, won the Italian Derby (GII)! !

He is one of the sire’s second crop.

This is the first Classic win for the sire, and the fifth horse to win group races.

Borna is a French-bred, German-trained horse.

He has traveled to Italy several times.

His next target will be the German derby.  I look forward to his further success.

Tosen Stardom (moved to Ireland in December 2022)


Torsen Stardom has stayed in Ireland as a stallion since 2023.

First, let me introduce his profile.

Torsen Stardom

Born on March 14, 2011

Sire: Deep Impact (JPN) Dam: Admire Kirameki (JPN)

Dam’s sire: End Sweep (USA)

As you know, Tosen Stardom started his career as a racehorse in Japan.

When he turned 5 years old, he moved to Australia.

He won two GI races in the country and entered stud at Woodside Park Stud there in 2017.

The story of how he became a stallion is described in the article below.

Stallions by Deep Impact standing at studs in countries outside Japan 3 Today I would like to introduce you to stallions by Deep Impact ...

He was a stallion at the stud for five years.

It was announced that he would be staying at Zenith Stallion Station in Ireland in December 2022, initially as a shuttle stallion.


However, Tosen Stardom’s name was not on the 2023 stallion list of Woodside Park Stud in Australia.

He would have remained in Ireland after the 2023 stud season.

It was also announced that he would be kept as a stallion at Zenith Stallion Station in 2024 as well.

In Australia, his first crop are those born in 2019.

Currently, two generations of offspring are running, including those born in 2020.

As of October 4, 2023, he has 18 individual winners.

I think the results will continue to improve in Australia as well.

However, there is a possibility that Europe would be a better fit for Tosen Stardom.

So, I am looking forward to seeing how his offspring perform after the transfer.

There is Martinborough in France.


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.

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.


*Added on August 14, 2023

Martinborough’s progeny achieved their first victory in a group race in the United States! !

Elusive Princess, a 3-year-old filly, won the Saratoga Oaks (GIII, 1900m) at Saratoga Racecourse on August 4th.

The Saratoga Oaks is the second race in NYRA’s Turf Tiara series for 3-year-old fillies.

Elusive Princess debuted at Le Mans racecourse in France in September 2022 with a win.

In May 2023, she finished 2nd at the Prix Saint-Alary (GI), and also ran in the French Oaks (GI) in June, finishing 5th.

Although she didn’t win the GI races, her sharp finish caught people’s eye.

Her record in France was 3 wins and 2 seconds for 6 starts.

And this time, she won the group race in the United States in her seventh race.

It has been decided that she continues to run in the country.

I hope she will win GI races there.


*Added on March 23, 2024

Majborough, a 4-year-old gelding by Martinborough, has accomplished a feat! !

On March 15th, he won the Triumph Hurdle (GI), a 3360m steeplechase race held at Cheltenham Racecourse in the UK.

This is one of the races at Cheltenham Festival, a four-day jump race festival.

I had heard that steeplechase races are more popular than flat races in Europe, and hearing the cheers made me nod.

A reporter from Racing Post came to cover Japan Cup, which Deep Impact raced in after returning from France.

An article written at that time said, “The cheers at Japan Cup were comparable to those at Cheltenham,” which left a lasting impression on me.

After seeing the race that Majborough ran this time, I understood he was right.


It was announced that the favorite would not run the race just before, and Majborough’s luck was on his side.

But He is amazing as he achieved the result on the big stage.

It seems like there are high expectations for him, and I hope he continues to be safe and sound and do his best.

It was the first GI victory in Martinborough’s offspring.

Their ability to win in hurdle races has been attracting attention for some time.

I hope that more and more good broodmares will visit him in the future.

I also hope that the sire will bring out GI horses in flats races as well.

Personally, I would like to take this opportunity to see his recent images and videos.

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.

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?


*Added on December 9, 2023

Premio Federico Tesio (GIII) was held on November 12th.

Tempesti, a 4-year-old colt by Albert Dock, won the race just like last year!

This is his third win in group races.

Only five horses ran in the race, but Sammarco, German Derby horse of last year finished second.

Tempesti also beat Sisfahan, German Derby horse in 2021 in this race last year.

Sisfahan may be familiar to you, as he ran in Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe this year, finishing seventh.

This time, jockey Christian DeMuro took the reins for Tempesti.

I was worried because he was’t able to win the two races this fall.

However, they achieved the great result.

After the race, it was announced that Tempesti would continue his training next year.

I hope he makes it through races safely and becomes a stallion in the future.

I guess if Italy’s domestic situation allows it.

I would also like to see offspring by Albert Dock who win in group races following him.

2018 ~ 2020 €4,000

2023, 2024 €6,000


*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 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
