The nicks above feature some of our most commercial sires and many are easily replicated either with the sires themselves or in the cases where a sire has died, through his sire sons.

High ChaparralThe loss of High Chaparral (IRE) as one of our best sources of classic type horses and a great foil for the many Danehill line mares is a considerable one, but with a myriad of his sire sons available this spring there is still plenty of scope to go down this path.

High Chaparral sire sons available this spring include So You Think (Coolmore), Dundeel (Arrowfield Stud), Monaco Consul (Kingstar Stud), Toronado (IRE) (Swettenham Stud), Free Eagle (IRE) (Cornerstone Stud) and Alpine Eagle (Armidale Stud).
