Aristotle joins Stowaway at Whytemount Stud

ARISTOTLE, the 1999 Racing Post Trophy winner, has joined Europe's busiest stallion of 2011, Stowaway, and Ascot Gold Cup hero Mr Dinos at Ronnie O'Neill's Whytemount Stud in County Kilkenny for next year.

The son of Sadler's Wells had stood at Lynden Park Stud in Victoria in Australia since 2002, and had been repatriated to stand in Ireland, at Don Cashman's Steeple Stud in County Wexford, for the past two seasons.

Aristotle's pedigree has received a significant upgrade in recent years, as Coronation Cup and Breeders' Cup Turf winner St Nicholas Abbey is out of his half-sister Leaping Water and by Sadler's Wells' son Montjeu.

Trained by Aidan O'Brien for Coolmore, Aristotle won the Racing Post Trophy on his second start and finished third in the Prix Greffulhe at three.

Subsequently sold to race in Singapore, he won the Singapore New Year 2000 and was runner-up in the Singapore Derby under the name Our Aristotle.

Aristotle's fee at Whytemount has been set at €1,000 - the same fee as for Mr Dinos. A covering fee for Stowaway, whose final tally of mares covered this year was around 320, will be decided in the near future.
