Deep Impact Champion Sire for 11th year in Japan

Although this is probably the last time we can put him in the headlines as his last very small crop comes through.

His success came not only at home but in Australia we had Glint of Hope as a G1 winner and in Ireland there is Auguste Rodin, whom Aidan O'Brien rates as his best horse ever!

Also on the sires' list were Lord Kanaloa, Kizuna, the much lamented Duramente and now we are starting to see the products from Maurice coming through, one of the most exciting of which is Geraldina, out of Gentildonna.  In Australia we have Hitotsu and Mazu, who both look exciting prospects.
