Conduit arrives for
stud duty in Japan

CONDUIT has finally returned to Japan to embark on his stallion career at Shigeyuka Okada's Big Red Farm where he will stand his first season at a fee of 3,000,000 JPY (£22,455/€24,579).

The five-year-old son of Dalakhani completed back to back victories in the Breeders Cup Turf for Sir Michael Stoute at Santa Anita last November and signed off with a close fourth to Vodka in the Japan Cup in Tokyo.

Due to Japanese quarantine regulations, however, Conduit has spent the past month back in isolation at Newmarket rather than remain in the far east.

Conduit, who's fee dwarfs that of his counterparts, joins 11 other stallions on the rosterat Big Red including Dubai World Cup winner Roses In May and multiple Group 1 winner Agnes Digital.

In a statement, Big Red Farm confirmed: "Conduit arrived at our stallion barn on February 2nd."

As well as his Breeders Cup exploits, the Ballymacoll Stud-homebred won the 2008 St Leger and King George and Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes at Ascot last July. He retires as winner of seven of 15 races and over £3.5 million prize-money.
