There was a time when sons of Deep Impact were transferred one after another to Australia.

Not only his children but also some other Japanese horses moved to the country.

Tosen Stardom

Of all of his sons who have moved from Japan to Australia, Tosen Stardom has been the most successful ever.

Tosen Stardom

Born on March 14, 2011

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

Dam’s sire: End Sweep (USA)

Tosen Stardom moved to Australia after he ran in the Tokyo Shimbun Hai in February 2016.

When he was four years old, he traveled to the country in the spring and ran in two Group 1 races, finishing 2nd and 5th.

Then, he might build a relationship with connections there.

Tosen Stardom had 14 races in Japan and 6 races in Australia (including the races that he ran in when he was based in Japan).

In Japan, he won two Group 3 races, the Kisaragi Sho and the Challenge Cup. But, unfortunately he could not become a Group 1 winner.

He teamed up with Jockey Yutaka Take from his debut and was expected to win Classic races.

Many fans may remember the scene where he hit the inner railing in the home straight in the Derby.

After moving to Australia, there was a time when he couldn’t participate in races for about a year due to physical condition.

However, in the fall of 2017, when he was 6 years old, he finally won two Group 1 races!

He retired in the spring of the following year and became a stallion at the Woodside Park Stud.

You can watch a video of Tosen Stardom who became a stallion on their website.

I had the impression that he was slender when he was active, but he now has a solid body that is typical of stallions.

The video emphasizes the goodness of his body and says that his physique compliments Australian mares superbly.

It adds that he was good at running in firm tracks and his children also seem to have such characteristics.

I heard that Mr. Shimakawa, the initial owner in Japan, and Mr. Yoshida (probably) of Northern Farm, the breeder, were still his shareholders after he became a stallion.

The video says that he has collected the most mares among stallions from Japan in the last three years.

I think the film was taken in 2020 or later.

The video is well organized.  There are also many articles on the website, so if you are interested, please take a look.

The long-awaited first victory of Tosen Stardom’s son🎉

Shuriken, a 3-year-old gelding  ran a 1200m maiden race and won in style on October 24.

He ran his second race today and finished 6th.

This year’s 3-year-old foals are the first crop of Tosen Stardom.

21 horses have debuted so far.

As the first victory of the progeny is now, he is currently struggling as a stallion.

I think that the fact that his children mainly participated in short-distance races have had an effect.

It was not good for them that there was a lot of rain in Australia this year.

Tosen Stardom himself excelled at relatively long distances.

The progeny may also take longer to grow.

I would like Australian breeders to wait a little longer before his offspring can run in long distance races.

Stud Fee


2018, 2019   19,250 AUD

2020 12,100 AUD

2021, 2022 7,700 AUD

・Ireland (as a shuttle stallion)

2023  €7,000


*Added on December 10, 2022

It has been announced that Tosen Stardom will be shuttled to a stud in Ireland for the 2023 breeding season.

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

His stud Fee is €7,000.

The connections noted the goodness of Tosen Stardom’s pedigree.

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

I pray that good offspring will come out.

For more information, see Shuttle stallions by Deep Impact.

Fierce Impact

*This Section was added on April 23, 2021.

The other day, it was announced that Fierce Impact would retire and became a stallion.

Fierce Impact, who turned seven this year, was initially planned to retire after spending the fall season in Australia as a racehorse.

However, unfortunately, he didn’t seem to be ready to run in races and was decided to retire earlier than planned.

As mentioned in the article below, Fierce Impact has won three GIs.

He was also named the best middle-distance horse for 2019-2020.

Children of Deep Impact who won in GI and Graded Races Overseas 2Continuing from the previous article, I would like to introduce chil...


Fierce Impact is standing at Leneva Park.

The stud entered the stallion business last year, and currently there is only one other stallion besides him.

His stud fee for 2021 is announced to be A $ 16,500 .

In Victoria, it seems that another leading horse who ran well in mile races will become a stallion.

So, it seems that Fierce Impact will start at a reasonable price.

But the game is yet to come.

The response from breeders there is great.

It also seems that good mares will visit him, so I would like to expect evaluation after the birth of his children.

Stud Fee

2021, 2022 16,500 AUD

Compared to the fee of Tosen Stardom, the price is very bullish.


In addition to them, Real Impact, Mikki Isle, Real Steel and Saxon Warrior visited Australia as shuttle stallions.

Al Ain was also scheduled to go there this year, but it was canceled due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection.

Saxon Warrior has departed for the country again this year.

New Zealand

Staphanos is standing at stud in New Zealand.


Born on February 13, 2011

Sire: Deep Impact (JPN) Dam: Kokoshnik (JPN)

Dam’s sire: Kurofune (USA)

Staphanos is in the same generation with Tosen Stardom. They are the fourth crop of Deep Impact.

He was a hot topic even before his debut, and I remember I was looking forward to seeing him in his maiden race.

However, he finished fourth then and I was disappointed.

He won in his third race and won the Fuji Stakes (Group 3) at the age of three.

Looking back on his record, there were really many races that he finished second.

He took second place in three Group 1 races including the one in Hong Kong. Twice in other graded races.

Perhaps he got a good response when he first traveled to Hong Kong, he went there five times.

Unfortunately, he was unable to win a Group one race and retired after running in a race in Hong Kong in December 2018.

After retiring, he became a stallion at Novara Park Stud, New Zealand.

They are emphasizing achievements of not only Staphanos himself, but also of Deep Impact at their website.

Many of stallions by Deep Impact overseas did not run in races in their respective countries.

At the stage when their crop has not yet made their debut, “sons of Deep Impact” is probably their best selling point.

I heard that 108 mares visited him in the first season.

He could collect many mares even though he was not a syndicated stallion.

Stud Fee

2020 NZ $ 7,000

2021, 2022 NZ $ 7,000

*Added on April 25, 2021

According to the Twitter of Novara Park Stud, where Staphanos is standing at, his fee for 2021 remains unchanged at NZ $ 7,000.

Satono Aladdin also visited the country as a shuttle stallion in 2018 and 2019.

For more information on Satono Aladdin who moved to Australia as a shuttle stallion,

please visit Shuttle stallions by Deep Impact.


*Added on December 17, 2022

The first crop by Staphanos scored the first victory🎉

On December 17th, Pignan, a 2-year-old filly, ran at Trentham Racecourse in New Zealand and won in style!

It was a 1,100m race.

Pignan made her debut in September this year, and this is her third race.

She finished 3rd in the previous 2 races.

The race also included Love Tania, a two-year-old filly by the sire.

However, unfortunately, she did not come to top places.

I hope that Staphanos’ progeny will make a smooth debut and run well.

United States

*This item was added on May 20, 2021.

On a page I wrote in the past, I told you that there should be a stallion by Deep Impact in the United States.

But I didn’t know the details.

I recently got the information, so I will add this section to this page.

The stallion in America is Dowsing. First, I would like to introduce his profile.


Born on June 1, 2013

Sire: Deep Impact (JPN) Dam: Forest Rain (FR)

Dam’s sire: Caerleon (USA)

I think Dowsing is an unfamiliar name.

This is because he is a horse who could not run in a race.

The Niarchos family, the owner of Study Of Man, has sent their broodmare, Forest Rain to Japan.

Three children of Deep Impact were born, but unfortunately, they, including Dowsing could not succeed as racehorses.

Freedonia, the first crop out of the dam, came to Japan and participated in the 2006 Japan Cup.

She ran in the race with Deep Impact, so some of you may remember it.

Dowsing was unable to make his debut due to a tendon injury during training in France.

Then, he became a stallion at Holden Farm in Indiana, USA in 2017.

An article dated March 6, 2017 in the Throughbred Daily News carried his photo .

Looking at the photo, there is a white spot on his forehead that is similar to the one his sire had.

He was four years old, but still looked very young.

His stud fee for the first year was US $ 10,000 and the fee is now up to US $ 25,000.

This price seems to be quite bullish as a stallion who did not have a race record.

His children have not yet got good results, either.

About 20 broodmares visited him every year.

A newspaper article at the time when he became a stallion also stated that the Niarchos family retained some breeding rights to him.

His second crop will debut this year.

Unfortunately no winner has appeared so far.

I heard that the co-owner of the stud was a fan of Sunday Silence.

Their Facebook page contains news about the success of children of Deep Impact overseas.

I hope that Dowsing will stay healthy and have even one successful child.

Stud Fee

2017 $ 10,000

2021 ~ 2023   $ 25,000

Isn’t it a very bullish price setting?  It seems to be told that the price was expensive even in the first season.

It’s far higher than other stallions in the same area. Click here for the reference material.

He is almost like a private stallion, so I wonder if it’s okay.


*Added on December 11, 2022

On May 2021, Book of Romeo, a 3-year-old (then) gelding by Dowsing, won his maiden at the Indiana Grand Racecourse🎉

Bickerments, a four-year-old filly also won at the Horseshoe Indianapolis racecourse this September.

In the same month, Presto Bench, a 4-year-old gelding finished second at the same racetrack.

15 mares visited Dowsing in 2021 and 8 offspring were born.

12 mares went to him this year.

His stud fee for 2023 is still set at $25,000, according to an article of Bloodhorse.


There is Hiraboku Deep in Chile.

Hiraboku Deep

Born on April 26, 2010

Sire: Deep Impact (JPN) Dam: Cat Ali (USA)

Dam’s sire: Storm Cat (USA)

Hiraboku Deep is one of the third crop sired by Deep Impact.

He won the Aoba Sho (Group 2) at the age of three.

He also ran in the Derby and Kikuka Sho (Group 1 races), but unfortunately he couldn’t get good results.

After that, he participated in open class races and graded ones, and achieved a record of 24 races for 4 wins.

Then, he retired after running in the race in September 2017.

After retiring, he became a stallion at the Haras Matriarca  stud in Chile。

His latest photo was posted on Twitter:

It is dated April 20, 2022.


The stud seems to be actively disseminating information on Twitter and Youtube.

If you check them, you can get the latest information on him.

And also a video of his child.  He or she was probably listed on the sale.

It was tweeted on April 13, 2022.

Stud Fee

2020 $ 2,000

2021 2,000,000 CLP (Chile Peso)

The amounts for 2020 and 2021 seem to be different, but the difference may be just the one between the dollar and the Chilean peso.


So far, I have introduced stallions by Deep Impact who are standing at stud in countries outside Japan.

I hear that stallions often move, and the situation will change quickly, such as horses who will retire in the future.

When there are some changes, I would like to make corrections and additions.

As I said before, many of stallions by Deep Impact who are standing in foreign countries now didn’t run in races held there.

Therefore, achievements of their sire, Deep Impact are emphasized at first.

However, if their crop debuts and succeeds, their own achievements will be promoted.

First of all, I hope that they will stay in good health and that they will be loved for a long time at the studs they are in now.
