Group 1-placed Barbajuan to stud in Australia

BARBAJUAN, winner of the 2003 Group 3 Solario Stakes for trainer Neville Callaghan, will enter stud in Australia for the upcoming southern hemisphere season at Eagle Park Stud.

A fee of A$6,600 (£3,237/€3,719) has been set for the son of Danehill Dancer.

As well as taking the Solario Stakes from subsequent Dewhurst Stakes winner Milk It Milk, Barbajuan was also placed twice at Group 1 level, namely when third in the Gran Criterium to Pearl Of Love and fourth in the National Stakes to One Cool Cat.

After a three-year-old season which yielded unplaced efforts in the 2,000 Guineas and Dante Stakes, Barbajuan was sold to race in Macau where he went on to register seven wins from 60 starts led by the Group 3 Taipa Winter Trophy.

By the same sire as successful stallion Choisir, Barbajuan is the  only stakes performer out of the unraced Saddlers' Hall mare Courtier, herself a granddaughter of the high-class Canadian filly Par Excellance. Further back, the family includes Oaks third Hawajiss and this season's exciting Australian first crop sire Charge Forward.
