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.
1. Sweden: Barocci, Geniale
２. United Kingdom: Study of Man
3. Ireland: Saxon Warrior
4. France: Martinborough
5. Italy: Albert Dock
6. Turkey: Smart Robin
7. South Africa: Danon Platina
8. India: Fiero
9. China: Okole Maluna, Garibaldi, Seewind
10. Australia: Tosen Stardom, Fierce Impact
11. New Zealand: Staphanos
12. US: Dowsing
13. Chile: Hiraboku Deep
In this article, I would like to write about stallions in foreign countries, so I will exclude those in Japan.
In addition to the countries listed above, there was a stallion by Deep Impact standing in the United States.
He could not run in a race or did not perform very well when he was a racehorse.
However, I heard that the owner of a stud liked the pedigree of Sunday Silence very much and made him a stallion.
But unfortunately, I forgot his name and I can’t find out if he is still a stallion 💧.
I haven’t heard any news about him lately.

I recently got information about Dowsing, a stallion by Deep Impact in the US!
Click here for details.
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
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).
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.
＊Added on May 9, 2021
The other day, I found news about the success of Barocci’s 3-year-old crop!
Information on horse racing in Sweden is hard to come by.
I would be happy if there would be his child who win a big race.

2020 25,000 SEK (Swedish krona)
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.

There was a pleasing article in the Racing Post.
Geniale seems to be very popular in Scandinavian countries.
He has received many appointments, and I heard the stud supporting him was also happy.
It would be great if any of stallions by Deep Impact could make a big success enough to change the situation in the country.
Yes, like Sunday Silence.
ジェニアル、北欧でとても人気があるみたい☺ この時点ですでに40、45頭の申し込みがあって、今年北欧諸国で最も多い種付頭数になるだろうって🎉 あ、でもバロッチは？

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
2021 25,000 SEK (Swedish krona)
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.
Racing Post紙の記事に、Study of Manの初仔2頭誕生のニュースが☺ どちらも牝馬で、母馬はLucinda JaneとLady Jane Digby。血統のこといろいろ書いてあったけど、よくわかんない😅 Lady Jane Digbyは同じ牧場にいるGⅠ馬みたいですが。https://t.co/wNc2R48bVy

Saxon Warrior, the winner of the English 2000 guineas in 2018 is standing in Ireland.
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.
— スージー@ディープ♥科捜研 (@Susie73629484) July 20, 2020
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.
Added on April 30, 2021:
Saxon Warrior will continue to stay in Australia as a shuttle stallion in 2021.
This is the third consecutive year since 2019.
This year’s stud fee is A $ 13,750.
Fierce Impactの種付け料より安いですね・・・Fierce Impactは先日、16,000豪ドルとの発表がありました。 https://t.co/3dkiniE5IR
— スージー@ディープ♥科捜研 (@Susie73629484) April 27, 2021
The fee was A $ 30,000 in 2019 and A $ 17,600 in 2020.
As I wrote in the tweet, the fee for Fierce Impact who became a stallion this year, is A $ 16,000.
I have not yet seen the announcement of the fee for Tosen Stardom.
The description on the website of the stud has not changed.
So, the fee may remain at A $ 12,100 this year.
The fee for Saxon Warrior in Australia, even though his children have not debuted, is steadily decreasing💧
But if there is no demand, he doesn’t have to go there.
So, I think he is needed in the country as he will go there this year, too.
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.

・Australia (as a shuttle stallion)
2019 30,000 AUD
2020 17,600 AUD
2021 13,750 AUD
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 is standing at Haras de Grandcamp stud.
His first crop made their debut this year. I’ve heard news of their success.
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.
There is Albert Dock in Italy.
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?
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!
