Coolmore announced dual Gr1-winning 3YO colt Starspangledbanner (Choisir-Gold Anthem, by Made Of Gold) will stand his initial stud season at $33,000. Starspangledbanner is currently in Ireland being prepared for a series of Europe's best sprint races & is scheduled to join his sire Choisir at Coolmore Australia after his European mission. Coolmore general manager Michael Kirwan noted: "The horse has made a hugely positive impression on (Coolmore's Ballydoyle-based Irish) trainer Aidan O'Brien. It's no surprise that he has found the change in environment so easy, as he has such a good temperament. His work has been very good & Aidan & the team are very keen on him. It's all systems go towards the Gr2 Duke Of York Stakes (6 furlongs) at York on May 12 & then on to Royal Ascot."
