Sub-fertile Cacique retired from stud duties

CACIQUE, Juddmonte's sub-fertile brother to Dansili, has been retired from stud duties. Having retired to Banstead Manor Stud in 2007, his first crop of juveniles numbers 30 with his second and third crops significantly smaller, and he was not offered for public use this year.

By Danehill out of Juddmonte's prize mare Hasili, Cacique is also a brother to Banks Hill, Champs Elysees and Intercontinental.

Starting his racing career as a three-year-old, Cacique was first handled by Andre Fabre, winning his first two starts before being pitched at Group 1 level in the Prix Jean Prat over 1m1f.

He found only Arc winner Bago too good that day, and was again behind that rival when second in the Grand Prix de Paris.
He finished the season off with a win in the Group 2 Prix Daniel Wildenstein over a mile at Longchamp.

At six, Cacique raced in the US, trained by the late Bobby Frankel. Campaigned in Grade 1 races on turf, he gained his first top-level win in the Manhattan Handicap by a nose, and a second when landing the Man O'War Stakes at Belmont Park.

Cacique sired his first British winner when the Michael Jarvis-trained Dominant took a 7f maiden at Goodwood on September 22.
