Casamento Retired To Kildangan

Wednesday, 17th October 2012

Ireland's Darley-owned Kildangan Stud will stand 2010 2YO Gr1 Racing Post winner Casamento (Shamardal-Wedding Gift, by Always Fair) at stud from 2013, reports racingpost.com. Initially trained in Ireland as a juvenile by Michael Halford, he was campaigned as a 3YO by Darley, and the son of successful Darley sire Shamardal will join his own sire at stud. Out of a stakes-winning mare, Casamento's half-sister is dam of this year's Champagne stakes-winner. He retires to stud with 4 wins (also including the Gr2 Beresford Stakes at the Curragh & Longchamp's Gr3 Prix du Prince d'Orange) & a runner-up (in the Gr1 National Stakes at the Curragh as a juvenile).
