Viewed Dam Now Heading To Duke Of Marmalade
Meanwhile Sydney-based breeder Ian Johnson confirmed Gr1 Caulfield Cup winner Viewed's dam Lovers Knot is now heading to Coolmore's 5-time Gr1-winning 5YO freshman stallion Duke Of Marmalade (Danehill-Love Me True, by Kingmambo) for her next breeding barn appointment. Johnson noted: "For me, he was the standout when I saw the stallions. They are a lovely bunch of horses (at Coolmore) but physically he really stood out. He has great presence about him. Obviously he has a good pedigree, but physically he has what I am looking for with Lovers Knot. She's a big, coarse mare & he has that quality that I think she needs. I particularly liked his backend, his hind part. As I said, he has everything I was looking for."
