Irish National Stud To Stand Famous Name
Meanwhile, the Irish National Stud will stand Juddmonte-bred 7YO entire Famous Name (Dansili-Fame At Last, by Quest For Fame) in 2013. Irish National Stud chief executive John Osborne told racingpost.com: "Juddmonte [Khalid Abdullah's breeding operation] needs no introduction nor does Famous Name. He is the third-highest rated son of Dansili and will appeal to breeders looking to produce a racehorse in his likeness." Famous Name ends his career with 21 wins (20 in stakes company) & 13 placings from 38 starts over five seasons and earnings over £1.3 million. He won his last five races in succession, all in stakes company, including the Gr2 Royal Whip Stakes at Curragh over 11 furlongs.
