The success of Dundeel in the Longines Queen Elizabeth Stakes, his sixth Group 1 win highlighted just what a brilliant, versatile and durable racehorse he was. His explosive turn of foot and ability to carry his speed over 2000 metres enabled him to win some of racing’s most prestigious races – the Grand Finals so to speak and in doing so defeat the best of vintage generation.But in considering his stallion potential his undoubted racing prowess should not overshadow his powerful genetic makeup. We believe it’s not only the basis of his exceptional ability, but also the foundation of what may well be an equally exceptional stallion career. As a grandson of both Sadler’s Wells and Zabeel he carries some obvious powerful elements in his pedigree. But dig a little deeper and an interesting and significant pattern emerges.
